Keys 2 the City

Dec 5 2008

Just as hip-hop itself is inseparable from its birthplace in the Bronx, every aspiring MC is eternally connected to the neighborhood they grew up in. “Keys 2 the City” explores the bond between community and MC’s by following them to the barbershops, BBQ joints, basketball courts, swap meets and schoolyards that shaped them into the artists we admire today. Over the next 8 weeks (from December 1st to February 1st), fans will get to know the MC’s, DJ’s, OG’s and architects of an LA hip-hop scene poised to jump from regional to national notoriety.

From West Coast gangster living with Dre protégés Bishop Lamont and The Game to Mid-City with Murs, down to Crooked I’s Long Beach to Melrose with The Knux, burritos with Blu, b-ball with U-N-I, chili fries with J. Davey, and street-wear stores with Pac Div.

We got the first of the videos up in this post but go here to watch the rest of the videos.

U-N-I : Chapter 1 – Keys 2 the City

dubFrequency got a new compilation/mixtape up on Imeem called Creme de la Creme The Mixtape. The Mixtape has never-heard-before exclusive tracks from (in order of appearance); The Cool Kids, Hollywood Holt, Mickey Factz, Pacific Division, Dom Kennedy, Chris Young, Donnis, Carter, BMB, Blu, Mic Terror, Vyle, U-N-I, Diz Gibran, and Kidz in the Hall. So much good stuff on this one it is almost ridiculous.

The mix is stream only but we got one track from it for you to download.

BONUS:

Dom Kennedy – Tell Her (direct link)

Moby just released his new record “Last Night”, he just did a little something with Imeem where he recorded intros to each track on the record and tells us a more how they came together. You also get a chance to listen to the whole record. We love this kind of stuff. Robyn made one before and this kind of extra material is great.

So go check out Discobelle presents On the Record with Moby here!
