Mass Stand Up 2

Mass Stand Up 2 was the first show to be put together by Kinda Dusty, I gotta say job well done fam. That show had one of the best turnouts I have seen locally in a long time. And I been in the scene for a minute, the show took place at Tammany Hall and was real crazy.

Grand Daddy Gutta took the stage and did his thing and really set the bar for how the rest of the night would go.

Tank Murdah grabbed the mic and definitely did his thing. His performance was reminiscent of some of my favorite mixtape emcee’s.

Black Ownaz…..hold on…. BLACK OWNAZ MUFUCKA !!! Black Ownaz raided the stage and had both the ladies and the fellas bouncing.

Black Ownaz Pt 2

Next up was J.K. Haze , I gotta give it up to these dudes they really put on for Central Ma.

J.K. Haze

Following the Haze was H2T2’s own Cocaine Robots ( A.v. & T ) along with artists out of the H2T2 Camp ( Prophecy , Lexx Luthor , and newcomer J-Dollaz ). I don’t mean to toot our own horn, but dezaaaammmmnnnn. We definitely held it down with a dope track order and of course material.

H2T2 Pt 1

We did some things for the ladies and of course for the thugs. Myself and Prophecy had the perfect transition track “Miss Lady” the Eddie Murphy sample at the end made the crowd laugh and hit a spot of truth. Next up was Av, and he shocked the crowd with his opening line “SELL COCAINE” now who’s gonna forget what he does with his money ??

H2T2 Pt 2

Brother Lexx made his on stage debut with “Go Hard” and definitely held it down. The set was closed with Crack and a Dookie Rope, Mass Second, and a H2T2 cyph which was also J Dollaz on stage debut.

H2T2 Pt 3 & 4

Next up was the Kinda Dusty collective, Paul Mighty with a ring anouncer presence gave E one of the best intro’s I’ve ever seen. E the Real had Tammany hall moving with that real hip hop shit ” Spit what I spit/with a stiff upper lip” and “Respect” E followed that up with one of my favorite songs he has to date    “King Shit” for those that don’t remember “King Shit” was featured on HHTT a few months back.

Kinda Dusty Pt 1

Paul Mighty chimed in next with an acapella followed by a track that displayed E’s love for the art of Hip Hop. Spit Supreme joined E and performed “4,2,1”.

Kinda Dusty Pt 2

Spit Supreme took the stage and opened up with “Who’s That” followed by a song which is one of my favorite from him “Rap Game” where he poses the question “What if it wasnt for the rap game ??”  Which i think is every emcee’s question to themselves. Skivi B came in next with a heartfelt song dedicated to his son that I know every parent in the building felt.

Kinda Dusty Pt 3

Spit Supreme closed out the Kinda Dusty set with a few more bangers and kept the energy live until the end of the night.

Interview w/ Brother Menelik of HHTT conducted by Mic Digi

When we started HHTT Productions, HHTT was already a movement. We were doing a lot of reviews of classic material at that time and got quite a reputation as a “no nonsense” periodical. Rev, Lex and I always prided ourselves as journalist so to get the respect from other blogs and news outlets only made us yearn for more. Armed with a digital camera we started our revolution in Worcester, making art in true HHTT style. -Brother Menelik Ebna la-Hakim

What is HHTT Productions?

Hulk Hate Time Travel Productions, is our media outlet (record label, photography, video editing, etc).

So, what’s the deal behind the record label?

We built a foundation with hulkhatetimetravel.com and beside journalism some of us also do music. Instead of shopping around we decided to do it ourselves indy and be something Worcester can respect.

Who are the artists that are down with HHTT?

The official roster as of ummm today (laughing) is……. Elijah Divine, Tony Velez, Prophecy, T.O.D., Lex Luthor, Brother Menelik (Av), Cocaine Robots, Scrilla and Ciph

I actually heard music from some of the peoples you mentioned, it’s good to see artists from the city getting out there

Thank you, we are a very humble set of brothers it’s a honor to rep where we from.

cocaine robo2

Ok let’s get into the roster, what’s good with the controversial Cocaine Robots?

Cocaine Robots are I (Brother Menelik) and T.O.D. I knew T since I was like 11 we been rapping since round that time. We been in many rap groups together and on the real that’s my mans. Anything I ever done is music he has had a part in it in someway. Our last group was Da Leg, we released the local classic “Description of Wor”. The music we did back then would be considered pure hardcore hip hop, I prefer” dat leg shit”!

Ha I remember all that man, what brought fourth the drug rap?

I love drug rap (laughing) I don’t know how else to put it! I think growing up in mainsouth Worcester surrounded by so much drug dealing, and negativity we had to make a positive. Lex and I was good kids you know, we did our shit bee but we had smarts, we had 2 parents in the household and shit bee. On the other side though was my older brother, he put me on the the drug shit and getting fresh and showing me the darker side of mainsouth. Growing up I idolized the drug dealer, I wanted to be just like him. After “Da Leg” parted ways I started to write more harsh material, more street, more real. I felt like I had to honor the OG’s the real niggas  from the block, the cats that I admired even though they did bad things they gave hope to a generation of kids who never had any, we didn’t live next door to doctors and shit the drug dealer was tangible bee.

That was deep…..  I want to say this though, past the drug rap I hear some humor to it, you speak on things like “fannie packs”???

Hahahhaahah, yea there is a little humor to it because it’s all real. I find it hard for me to jus rap about crack on the block cause that was not only what I saw or did, I was with lex bee, if we were in the kitchen niggas was in the kitchen but we would be peeping some ducktales also real talk. I had’s a fannie pak, that was my stash in 94 when jeru was out, no lie ask lex bee!

Whats Rev, T and Lex’s role in HHTT?

They don’t have a role, we are HHTT feel me? Our collective thoughts are HHTT pretty much we do what we like and put on for the city, we need a trophy! On the real though the movement would not be here without my brothers they all play a key role in the success which is HHTT. Rev is the music man, he pretty much keeps his ear to the local and national scene, this dude knows hip hop for real, sometimes he be posting shit that I’m like DAMN! Rev founded HHTT w/me and keeps us current.  Lex is the man, we co host a radio show over at 91.3 WCUW with our brothers from Social Light Sounds. He is the Lead Editor on the site and also an artist on the HHTT roster. He is my right hand. T.O.D. is the engineer of the “Da’ Kitchen” our inhouse studio, video editor, promoter, writer, and one half of the Cocaine Robots…….Did I also mention he produces!

I really respect what ya’ll do within the city, I never seen Worcester represented like this before. Why is that?

Once again thank you, we really appreciate all the love. We truly believe in our city, we all from different parts but we here now. Why run to NewYork or ATL for ya heroes when you got them right here! For so many years I have heard people say how much they hate Worcester, how wack it is etc, FUCK THAT!!! This is my home and I’m proud of where I’m from, Mainsouth Worcester baby!

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.

Big Lex was not in the building due to personal reasons, so this ones for you homie! HHTT is the army! H2T2 get infected!
