Just a little over one year ago, we introduced you to a new artist named Asher Roth. Since then, he’s developed one of the biggest buzz’ seen in years, and has been featured countless times in the media.
Today, his debut album on School Boy/SRC/Universal is finally here!
I just wanted to drop a quick post to give a major shoutout and thank you to the homie Zilla a.k.a Mr. I Built Tha Innanets, for helping me make some changes to the site that I’ve been struggling with for the past 3 weeks.
As you can see, the site has a whole new look to it. It’s not stopping here though, as I plan to make a few more changes in the layout and design, as well as the content. (I haven’t finished tweaking all the colours & etc, so it won’t remain as dark as it is now)
I think this site will always be in some constant state of development though. I like changing things up and keeping it fresh, so this is my outlet for that.
Also, I want to say thank you to everybody on Twitter who offered their help when I mentioned that I needed some help with the site; namely @mizrik, @webpres, @robo3k & @littleavenue. You guys rock and I really appreciate all your help!
Btw, what do you guys think of the new Twitter section on the top right of the page? I did it myself, so I’m proud of it lol. (Roll over it with your mouse)
Let me know what you think; I’m interested in hearing your comments.
A new documentary was just released by directors, Charles Rand & T.Thomas, titled “Kill The Record Labels”.
For decades hip hop has been controlled by the record companies. They invest millions and profit billions from global cassette, cd, and now ringtone sales. Music moguls afford a lifestyle comparable to what we see on mtv cribs. Eventually hip hop artist would adapt the record company formula, and start to strategically promote and market there own music. This has created a conflict inside the industry. The Record companies, in conjunction with the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), have declared war. Offices have been raided, Mom and Pop stores have been closed, and many have been arrested. Hip Hop Artists, Djs, and producers have decided that the only way to survive in the music business is to “Kill The Record Labels”.
Check this out. I was this week’s feature on NerdLike.com‘s Twitterati of The Week!
What is your favorite 80s song?
I’d have to say Billie Jean. Back then, I had this little leather baby jacket with zippers everywhere & a t-shirt with a massive picture of Michael when he had the jheri curl.
I also have to mention “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard. I was probably as obsessed with that song as I was with “Billie Jean”.
