HHTT Productions: Hip Hop Power V

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!

Small Talk/Keys to Success – E The Real & Paul Mighty

Remember the days when underground Hip Hop singles were found only on vinyl? The classic 12 inch format with an A side and a B side.  Dirty versions to blast through your stereo, clean versions for your mom’s favorite radio station, instrumentals for Emcees to rock over, and acapellas for DJs to cut and mix.  We miss those days too!

 

For all the Hip Hop nostalgics, http://sociallightsounds.com/new/  and http://butchersblocktv.com/ have teamed up to release an exclusive “Digital 12 Inch” as a Free Download.  It features three new tracks from Nite People’s lead vocalist E The Real and Massachusetts producer Paul Mighty.  This release includes everything you would expect from a 12 inch single on vinyl.  Instrumentals, acapellas, dirty, and clean versions.

Agent Orange – Cage

Cage released the underground classic Agent Orange produced by Necro back in 97.  Off the strength of that 12′ Cage eventually dropped Movies for the Blind(2002) on Eastern Conference, Hell’s Winter(2005) and earlier this month (7/7/09) Depart From Me on Definitive Jux.  Cage has undergone quite the evolution as an artist over the past decade as his newest effort Depart From Me sounds nothing like that of the old Cage.Download/Stream–>http://www.zshare.net/audio/632603652392aa6d/

Consequently Cage will be performing on the final leg of his Depart From Me tour this Friday on Brighton Ave in Allston at Harper’s Ferry with helpout from Yak Ballz and HHTT extended family members the Nite People.  If you are in the area this Friday make sure to check them out.

Nite People feat Arablak and Dibz – Ricochet

09 Ricochet feat Arablak, Dibz, Yohon DI

Now this is some real MC shit! Nite People once again with that signature style but this time teamed with local legend (who has recently moved to Atlanta) Arablak and Dibz. The beat is so dope on this track, the sample sounds like an Afghan man mumbling which somehow blends beautifully with the baseline and drums. As for the spitting, listen to the damn track! You should already know when it comes to lyrics, these brothers don’t joke around! Now go and cop that Nite People What Do You Mean You People Album!Nite People feat Arablak and Dibz – Ricochet

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. To find out more about Yohon and his other projects check sociallightsounds.com
