RapRadar.com L:aunches

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Elliot Wilson of XXL fame has launched his new website RapRadar.com. The site seems to be in early launch because many of the sections on the site are content free; Elliot seems to his placed in getting his site up live after his promotional hype around the hip-hop blogs. The site is still lacking other things like an About Page and an RSS feed.

Elliot Wilson has called RapRadar.com a Huffington Post like destination for the hip-hop blogosphere. GlobalGrind.com had the same idea but has failed to take off as promoters had hoped.

Will rapradar.com be successful? Maybe. It does have some good content like an interview with Q-Tip and T.I. but do I really want to read about what Pam from Martin thought about Biggie.

Gettin’ Up Into The I-phone

Monday, December 1st, 2008

As album sales decline, music artists continue to look for new sources of income. Mobile phones have become a standard source of income with singles sales transitioning into sales of ring tones.

Musical artists realize ring tone sales are not enough. The new world of mobile phone profits for mobile phones is applications. Q-Tip has entered the world of mobile application licensing by licensing Gettin’ Up off of his new album The Renaissance. Q-Tip has authorized “Gettin’ Up” to be used in the iPhone game app “Tap Tap.”

I would embed a Q-Tip video here but the thugs at Universal don’t want me to promote their artists fully.

I saw this great remix to the Jay-Z song Roc Boys by K Def. The horns are replaced with a smooth guitar lick. Instead of being a party song the song switches to a laid back song emphasizing the lyrics with occasional blasts of sirens for a sense of urgency.

Here is the new single “Touch & Go” from Joe Budden. Joe Budden will release his new album Padded Room on October 28. Fun Joe budden song with an electronica sound.

Here is a new song from Q-Tip called “Gettin’ Up Clean.” How we all miss A Tribe Called Quest. Hopefully Q-Tip will get a release for the album he has been working on.

Here is a new video by Detroit female emcee Invincible for her song titled “Sledgehammer”. Invincible covers topics such as gentrification and urban decay briefly in this song.

This song by Invincible is off of her new album Shapeshifters which will be released on September 9th.

There is a new Jay-z song called “Jocking Jay-Z” produced by Kanye West that is floating around the internet. More Jay-z talk about how rich he is and famous he is; Jay-Z’s act of exclaiming how famous he is getting a little boring but his rap flow is still great and the Kanye Beat is amazing with the simple guitar distortion and straight forward hard rap drum beat.
