Ok here we go. recently Jay and Rae released 2 long awaited albums Jay-z with The Blueprint 3 and Raekwon with Only Built for Cuban Links pt.II. Now every since their release, we here at HHTT have had an ongoing discussion about these two albums. it seems that whenever we discuss hip hop or lyricists this topic finds its way into the mix. Often this arguement can go on for long periods of time especially when BROTHER MENELIK gets goin against socialite sounds/nite people’s very own YOHON DI. Which, by the way, you can catch this discussion and many more live on the radio Friday nights from 10pm-12am on 91.3 fm Selective Hearing or stream it live from your computer at WWW.WCUW.ORG just click listen now. So im taking it upon myself to get you involved. Please let us know what you think, MENELIK who is very partial to the gritty drug rap, which no one does better than RAEKWON

raekwon1 

and YOHON is partial to jay-z for his track record and ability to move the crowd….So which album is better? Is RAE better cuz he kept it hood and brought back that 95 feel (the golden era of hip hop) wit a sick ass flo? Or is Jay-Z better cuz he has remained consistant over the last 10/13 years and can MC (move the crowd) at a moments notice?

Live from Creegans in Worcester, MA

kusto and eE and yohonnyt hold itMain AimOnce again science was dropped! July 25th @ Creegans in Worcester, MA HHP5 took place with an all star line up. The roster included, Nytmare, Main Aim, Serious, Cocaine Robots and Elijah Divine. DJ Manipulator was the house DJ w/Kusto and Ethereal of Nite People hosting the event. Each act did their thing, Nytmare started the night getting the crowd going early with his hype animated flow. Next up was the group Main Aim, they surprised many with their fast melodic flow and bumping choice of beats. Serious a true vet, attacked the stage with furious anger and kept the crowd thirsty for more. Cocaine Robots was in full effect dropping banger after banger. The group started with Sell Drugs (Cocaine) and got em hooked early then lead way into the groups new single Mass Second, a remix to the French Montana street hit NY Minute. Elijah Divine capped off the night with a stunning performance, there was a point I remember fellow mc’s throwing their hats onto the stage as a sign of respect, that’s real. Big Lex was not in the building due to personal reasons, so this ones for you homie! HHTT is the army! H2T2 get infected!

French did his thing on the NY Minute beat but I decided things happen a little faster in Massachusetts, sometimes in the matter of a second. On some real talk we decided to flip this track when I approached T after hearing some disturbing news about my older brother. One day he was here with me drinking some high life, next day he back behind bars facing 20yrs. This is for my brother and all cats who got caught up in the system, we hear you stay strong.

Brother Menelik & Yohon DI (Build)

agreemen suggestword up

A couple weeks back I sat down with Yohon DI of Nite People and 91.3’s Selective Hearing. I have been meaning to sit down with Yohon for quite sometime now but we both have hectic schedules, luckily we finally got time to build. Yohon is a very complex individual who has a genuine love for music. From our talk I got the feeling of a person who is completely driven by music, someone who operates on the scale of self satisfaction and artistic integrity. In this day it is hard to find many artists with such purist beliefs but refreshing when you do. It was strange cause as I was asking him questions he fired similar ones right back at me! The interview transitioned into a genuine conversation, which I felt was even better because we both got to learn more about each other and build.

HHTT Productions: Nite People (What Do You Mean You People?) Album Release Party

Live From Tammany Hall

men freedunnadun whatss go hard (2)yo and di

Sat. Jul, 11th @ Tammany Hall Worcester, Ma Nite People held their album release party and it was a hell of night! Cocaine Robots (Brother Menelik & T.O.D.) opened the night in dramatic fashion with their signature dope dealer sound. The Dunnas hit hard right after with beautiful chemistry showcasing each mc’s persona in a instance.  Spit Supreme followed with aggressive lyrics and smooth flow that kept the crowd moving leading nicely into the main act. Nite People in what looked like 30’s banker/mobster suits took stage and  wrecked shop! Tone on live production, Dj Manipulator on the 1’s and 2’s, Yohon and Ethereal on the mic, now you know that shit’s tight. You have to watch the vids to see Nite People’s dedication to Michael Jackson, shit was dope. All in all the night was an event that will be remembered and I’m honored for HHTT to have been apart.
