Mr. Green ft. Country, Pacewon & Skrewtape ~ Tent City (Live From The Streets) (Video)

On our way to back Philly we would always pass a slightly scary looking tent city on the side of the highway in Camden NJ. We were fascinated by it, we wondered what goes on there, who lives there, and what the people were like.

One day we finally mustered up enough courage to go inside. We arrived in the afternoon, and after walking up the long dusty path we were immediately greeted by Country, the assistant Mayor of Tent City. We were blown away by his charisma, charm and overall positive outlook on life. He was so interesting that we spoke to him close to 30 minutes before we even knew that he was a singer. Once he sung a few notes, we knew we had to feature him in an episode.

He sang us an original song and told us some stories about his life. Next, we took the audio back to the lab and Green made a beat mixing Country's voice with some piano. After that we took the beat to Pacewon in East Orange and he spit us a verse right on the street. Finally Green got his boy Skrewtape to lay down the final verse in a recording studio.

P.S. The people in Tent City need help. Even though they are very organized, having mosts things covered, they still struggle to get basic essentials and have to go some days without enough food and water. If you want to help the people of Tent City, email us at livefromstreet@gmail.com, and we will tell you the location. The things they need most are food, candles, batteries, clothes and water.

Guilty Simpson & Apollo Brown ~ Truth Be Told

Two Detroit titans, Apollo Brown and Guilty Simpson, are joining forces for a collaborative album on Mello Music Group.  
Unlike lightweight rappers “scared to face the reality of truth,” Guilty Simpson isn’t one to tiptoe around on the mic. “Truth Be Told” finds the Motor City rhymer bearing his soul over a slow-burning soul chop that is trademark Apollo Brown. Guilty’s usual ferocity is tempered by his introspection, reminiscing back to times when he was hustling and living fast but without direction. A sublime string loop gives Guilty’s monstrous mic presence center stage to tell his story, a specifically hood tale that is still widely relatable. Guilty punctuates his reflections with a worthwhile reminder: “You want change? It starts with you.”

 With a monster behind the boards and a monster behind the mic, this is a Dice Game you don’t want to miss. November 13th, mark your calendars.

Cosmic Compositions ~ Avant Garde Series Vol​.​1 [Pharoah Sanders]

We feel there is huge similarity's between the Avant-Garde/Free Jazz movement of the 50's & 60's & the beat movement of Today. As both movements attempted to break down, extend & alter the conventions of their original genres (Jazz & Hip Hop) & were never afraid to experiment & improvise to create something that wasn't accepted commercially at the time. 

C O S M I C | C O M P O S I T I O N S will be putting together a Series of Compilations dedicated to some of the pioneers of the Avant-Garde Jazz Movement. 

The majority of this compilation was produced by beatmakers who strictly sampled Pharoah Sanders.
