Judah Gives you..... ATCQ's Industry Rule #4080 Gets An Anime Adaptation w/ "The Indies" (2017) [@DJTonyDrake @BlueGeekMusic ]







In 1991, A Tribe Called Quest released 'The Low End Theory.' Though the RIAA certified platinum album boasted standout records like "Jazz (We've Got)", and "Scenario," it was the project's anti-label lead single "Check The Rhime" that took the LP to the next level by flagrantly calling out music executives for their unethical business practices. Unfortunately, 25 years later "record company people are still shady" and don't show any signs of turning over a new leaf.

Looking to showcase the harsh realities of the music and entertainment industry in a creative yet captivating way, Baltimore resident DJ Tony Drake is creating a 2D animated series appropriately titled "The Indies." The pilot episode, produced as a short, will give viewers a glimpse of what they can expect from the Anime & Hip-Hop infused cartoon ahead of its television debut, while proving to Hollywood it can be a major player alongside popular shows of the same caliber. An original Hip-Hop score, recorded at Grammy award winning House Studios DC, will accompany the short as well as all of the forthcoming episodes in the series, fueling each action sequence and setting the mood.

During a recent interview with AFROPUNK Tony shares, “I saw that there currently wasn't an animation that spoke directly to the Hip-Hop community without trying to exploit the culture. We've had shows like The Boondocks and Afro Samurai, but when those went off the air they left a huge void. We're now trying to fill that void with The Indies."

On August 28th, Tony launched a crowdfunding campaign in efforts to raise funds to complete and present the short to networks, production companies and potential investors in Los Angeles. In less than 24 hours, they raised over $4,000. You can support the cause and help him reach his goal of $50K by making a donation on the official KICKSTARTER page HERE.

Summary of The Indies: Set in a futuristic dystopian society, The Indies follows an up and coming rapper named Slick. Born into a well-to-do family living on Earth's Moon, he longs for the opportunity to pursue his dream of becoming a famous recording artist. With a burning desire to make his dreams come true by any means necessary, Slick has a chance meeting with DJ Chops, one of Hip-Hop's biggest DJs and record executives. Slick is offered what seems to be an amazing recording contract, which Slick hastily signs without reading the fine print. Slick soon finds out that not only did he sign up to pursue his dream of being a famous artist, but he also signed up for something much more sinister. You see, what Slick failed to realize is that not only are record labels home to some of the universe’s biggest music stars; they also serve as fronts for hitmen for hire services of nefarious crime lords. In order to free himself from his contract, Slick must now work with his new label mates to release his debut album while simultaneously executing dangerous hit jobs. Through these missions, the label mates will explore morality, loyalty, human nature, and discover who they really are at their core.

Judah Gives you..... @DBBantino @EdgarEstevess - Low [VIDEO]




DB Bantino is hitting his stride during a major year in his career. After working with hip-hop’s finest like French Montana, D.R.A.M, Bone Thugs, and Boosie Badazz, the singer/songwriter from Washington D.C. finally got his international shine when his single with Zoey Dollaz, “Bad Tings,” took over the national airwaves, and sparked a reggae remix of the single — straight out of the Caribbean — from Junior Reid. Now more than ever, DB is ready to cross the finish line to win on his own.

DB is doing the most to prepare us for his solo project 5 In The Valley. He linked with video director Edgar Esteves, who also crafted videos with G-Eazy, Russ, and G4$HI, for his first visual off the project, “Low.” Well before the threat of hurricane season, DB escaped to the islands to shield his new love from the public eye.

Look out for DB Bantino’s project 5 In The Valley coming soon, and watch the world premiere of his new video “Low” below. (Words by Tony Centeno)

Judah Gives you...... @larryharrisjr - Phat Kid Tendencies 2


Larry travelled to sf to write pkt2 and recorded it in Atlanta. It was mixed and mastered in miami by dj d-up, who is also from dc. the producer is an old friend that I played football with in hs at georgetown prep. His name is deep and he is one half of the nyc production duo 2 hungry bros. They produce for a slew of talented rappers including homeboy sandman. Deep sent me these beats while I was in miami, but I never got around to using them. I'm glad i did now. the beats are fire!

Pkt2 is a continuation of my story picking up where the first pkt left off. It is lyrical, has weight and is fun. I tell some stories, get political and look to the future. the reception so far has been warm!

Judah Gives you.......... Live -@junedakid @1203musicgroup1

Judah Gives you... @JDVBBS - Halsey X JDVBBS - Walls Could Talk (Remix)


JDVBBS adds his own feelings on a duet of Halsey's "Walls Could Talk" from her latest album, hopeless fountain kingdom. Originally produced by Lido, JDVBBS strips the track and responds with raw emotion.

JDVBBS continues to make waves both domestically and overseas with his diverse array of talents and catchy, upbeat tunes that span across a variety of genres. He's garnered over 500,000 plays in 100+ countries on his single, War Paint, through digital jukeboxes, internet radio and domestic FM radio, and streaming apps.

"I make Pop/R&B music with hip-hop sensibilities. Imagine Pharrell Williams and Missy Elliot had a baby, Justin Timberlake was his godfather and Kanye West his high school bully. Onstage, I'm a one man band. I recreate my tracks on the fly, live looping bass lines, guitar riffs, beats, grooves and vocal harmonies. It’s production meets performance in a way that’s interactive, improvisational, and impressive AF."

Judah Gives you....@BrainRapp @PadillaSp - Protect Your Neck Single off Roller Coaster Album

Roller Coaster, the latest album from DMV emcee Brain Rapp, was inspired by the ups and downs of his personal life. A cancer diagnosis of a close family member, a falling out with a close friend, the spark of a new relationship, and continued success in his career, provided the fuel for much of the project. The twenty-five minute, seven track project produced by Steven Padilla, takes listeners on a ride, exploring the reality that life can be both up and down, good and bad, all at the same time.

Stream the project's lead single, "Protect Your Neck." a warning shot to anyone hoping to halt or slow Brain's progress, on Soundcloud below and purchase Roller Coaster in its entirety via iTunes here. 

Judah Gives you...... @JayTheHomie @MikeyyySoL - "PLAYGROUND"


How does one cap off an absolutely phenomenal summer of music, with the level of originality & creativity on display via new & old artists alike? Take 5 of VA's most talented, under-turned-on the radar musicians and put them on a single track, and let the magic shape itself. With some assistance from Noah Kenton, Vin Atlas & 4-ill, the latest gem from dynamic duo RoesShamBeaux (consisting of MC JayTheHomie and producer Mikey Sol) serves as a victory lap for the pair, after the success of the wildly-popular summer anthem 'Tequila Toes,' which was released earlier this summer.

'Playground' is a powerful ode to the unknown and unspoken - a message made even more powerful once the backbone of the track takes center focus. With a peering eye on every artist featured, all 5 creatives manage to take the song to a new level via their own individuality, while simultaneously combining their greatest strengths and accomplishing perhaps the most impressive feat of all - coming together as one. Emotions as vast as the ocean are blended; from hope to sorrow, depression to joy; and back again - yet the track is wholly transparent in its meaning and intent, it walks the thin line between pure and tainted - something everyone who listens will be able to relate with.

Judah Gives you....... @LAMBOANLO - ON MY WAY - OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO



With all eyes on the Washington D.C. metro area’s budding music scene, rising artist Lambo sees his big break just over the horizon. So of the city’s soil that his birth certificate reads District of Columbia General Hospital, the 24-year-old wordsmith was born in 1992, the second youngest of six children, and raised in neighboring Capitol Heights, Maryland, on the D.C. borderline. It was there that his mother and father, along with his older siblings, exposed him to a myriad of musical genres and sounds from numerous eras.
From his older brothers’ love for Tupac, Scarface, and The Notorious B.I.G. to his parents emphatically playing early Motown acts like The Jackson 5 and Marvin Gaye, along with D.C.’s homegrown genre Go-Go, throughout the house, Lambo pulls from an extensive frame of reference when creating his music. For many, the challenge would be embodying these influences and the DMV’s soul without sounding dated or like a caricature of artists from previous eras. Not an easy feat. And yet Lambo manages to do so seamlessly due to his natural penchant for lyricism and melody displayed on songs like “Amen.”
Lambo writes lyrics with a perspective much wiser than his years – a testament to his tribulations and blessings. When mentioning the former, no single event has affected his life like the untimely death of his older brother, which left him shell-shocked at the tender age of seven-years-old.
Losing someone so close lit a fire in Lambo, ultimately causing him to approach each day with a higher level of urgency, considering that any day can be your last.
In come the blessings. The timeliest being Lambo’s greatest gift: his daughter. Born in 2016, just as his career began to ascend, she’s given him laser-focus – a reason to stay grounded through the madness that comes with fame and stardom. Like life, music is about balance. With the omnipresence of the Internet, quick, microwaveable product has supplanted for songs of substance. Fortunately, the proverbial cream always rises to the top, making the game look rather appetizing for Lambo.

Judah Gives you................. Jay Millz on the Cover of Working Mother Magazine & Featured Article

"DC community program owner Jay Mills has a different anxiety: managing her time. She runs the Green Life, where moms line up to take courses like Cooking with Cannabis 101, Pot & Policy: Know Your Rights and Marketing Your Cannabis Business—she’s not selling edibles, so her legal risk is lower. While the mother of a 4-year- old son says running her own company allows her the flexibility to create her own schedule (dream!), she points out that “when you’re the boss, you don’t call in, you call off.”

Judah Gives you....... @ullnevanohiphop, @napalmdef "86 Draft"



This track is an homage to the legendary Bias, who died before he could share his talents in the NBAUllNevaNo writes most of his raps at his night job, while Jumbled gets up early in the morning to make beats. This duo came together due to their mutual love of raw raps and Boom-Bap beats; tired of releasing random singles, they teamed up for a 7-song EP (due out early September 2017.) They first worked together on a track on Jumbled's solo album [I wish it was longer], which came out last year."

Judah Gives you....... @Mannywellz - "WATERMELON"



With 19 dates left to go in support of Jidenna's 'Long Live The Chef Tour,' Maryland mainstay Mannywellz playfully addresses stereotypes on “Watermelon,” the follow-up to his well-received single “Wrong Place.” Last heard assisting BK mainstay Stro on “Holy Vibe,” the song is a change of pace for the DMV native and will live on his forthcoming SoulFro project.

Judah Gives you...... @Parkway703 @ashyprophet - "LIE FOR"






After deciding to "Hold Up" on releasing music, resulting in a 7-month hiatus, Parkway returns with the follow up to "Selfish."Produced by Ashy Prophet, "Lie For" picks up where the DMV rap authority last left off; detailing his personal and musical growth.

With all eyes on the Washington D.C. metro area’s budding music scene, rising artist Lambo sees his big break just over the horizon. The 24-year old wordsmith was born in 1992 and raised in neighboring Capitol Heights, Maryland, on  the D.C. borderline.

For many, the challenge would be embodying these influences and the DMV’s soul without sounding dated or like a caricature of artists from previous eras. No easy feat. And yet, Lambo manages to do so seamlessly due to his natural penchant for lyricism and melody; which is exemplified by his new single “On May Way.”
 
Rostrum Records has an undeniable ear for talent.  After all, they introduced us to Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller (among others) and now they are back with an artist that is poised for similar success.

There are some songs that are just so catchy that you can’t fight them.  They manage to make everyone’s head nod.  The best of them have you singling along before you stop listening.  Premiered today by Mass Appeal, Lambo’s “On My Way” is that type of tune.
 
Like life, music is about balance. With the omnipresence of the internet, quick, microwaveable product has supplanted songs of substance. Fortunately, the proverbial cream always rises to the top, making the game look rather appetizing for Lambo; no question this rising star is on his way!

Judah Gives you....The Return of DCMumboSauce.com @DjheatDC



Back in 2007 I started a blog dedicated to showcasing upcoming music talent in the DMV. I named it DCMumboSauce.com, in honor of the area's distinct flavor and thus me highlighting our musical flavor. The site gained a wonderful following, and major publications like Complex and The Washington Post even linked back to it when doing stories on DMV music. We were one of the first sites to post music from a then unknown GoldLink, and did early interviews with Fat Trel, Shy Glizzy and more. In 2014 I stepped away from running the site because my heart simply wasn't in it, and I was also going through a turning point in my life. Fast forward to 2017, and I've had a change of heart like The Game! I am pleased to announced the all new DCMumboSauce.com !! 


Helping to kick off the website are two exclusive interviews! One is with Dew Baby, who many of you may have heard alongside Fat Trel and Wale on the song "Loyalty" from Wale's Festivus mixtape. But did you know that the song was not Wale's? Dew Baby gets very real when talking about that situation. It's rare for Dew Baby to do interviews, so I am glad he took the time out to talk to me: http://dcmumbosauce.com/dew-baby-gets-candid-dj-heat-music-ebm-situation-slutty-boyz/

The other interview is with DJ Anonymous, who is building a brand in the area that I would like to say is the DMV version of Roc Nation. Don't believe me? Check it for yourself: http://dcmumbosauce.com/dctop20/

One of my main reasons for bringing the site back is that I noticed a lack of coverage, and also a gap in coverage when it comes to all aspects of the DMV music scene. There are more than just trap rappers in this area, but they seem to get the most coverage by the local music "media" (yes, I use that term loosely lol. To my REAL journalist friends, this does not include you lol). Also, the ugly practice of local artists paying for interviews and website posts is still going strong here. And there are also a lot of people that have stories that need to be heard (the next interview I am unveiling this week will definitely tug at your heart strings). I plan on giving my area the proper shine that it deserves. No politics. No payola. Strictly DMV music culture.

I hope that you check out the site! Be sure to follow DCMumboSauce on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram as well. We have a tweet from today that is going viral. :) If you or any DMV based artists that you know would like to submit music, hit up dcmumbosauce@gmail.com.  And as always, thank you for always supporting me in all that I do! Have a blessed week!

Judah Gives you.... @BigFlock187 x Rico Nasty -They Won't Believe You

On Thursday March 30,2017 Maryland Rapper Big Flock was sentenced to 45 months in federal prison for possession of narcotics and firearms . A break from the 20 years he was originally facing.Big Flock's original arrest stemmed from a music video that was released(not of his own), which lead to his house being search where they found drugs and guns.
Flock stood before the court reading a heartbreaking letter apologizing for wasting every one's time , accepting responsibility and apologizing to his daughter the person he loves the most. The US Attorney General suggested that all young drug dealers read Flock Letter to The Youth and said he had read a lot of letters but Flock's was different,however he could not give Flock special treatment because he had such a big platform ; including that the government was even aware of all the RTs&Likes that Flock has received on the letter and wanted to use this as a example to young folks. 
Big Flock is in very good spirits and will continue to release music , videos, including his recent  collaboration track They Won't Believe You with upcoming female emcee Rico Nasty who is most notable for her record "Hey Arnold" ft Lil Yatchy and was recently featured on The Fast Furious Soundtrack . The record is produced by MK and will be featured on Big Flock's upcoming project "Sonny 2" .
