The Legend Continues ….

TUCK PARTY BLOG HEADER

    Last Saturday I worked all day and was dreading driving to Waco but I knew that I couldn’t miss this shit and Ooooh boy was I right. 

   The occasion was Pirscription’s Birthday Party, and not just a regular party, but one that had to live up to the hype of last years event that seen Texas legends Mr. Pookie and Mr Lucci hit the stage in what is still being called an amazing performance. 

  Hold up, you thought it wouldn’t be as live? Yooour wrong.

      This year was dope and if you were there then I know you enjoyed yourself, the performances were once again on point, the atmosphere was nice and the vibe was right.

       It felt like a who’s who of the Waco area with a lot of people making moves in the building. The music stayed live with a steady stream of everything jamming, DJ Cyse, DJ ADeezy, and DJ Texas T providing Master of Ceremonies duties. The liquor was flowing through the VIP lounge, which stayed nice and active as food and drinks were being served. (I served some drinks…..I bet you hated me the next morning, huh?) 

      Right around the time the performances started the energy picked up and never stopped. The opening acts were as I said before were on point, delivered a great show and set the tone for what was the gasoline to the fire. I had seen most of these artist before and was impressed again none the less. Trouble City had people singing along, and Cinto converted some new fans. The always reliable Lucky Loc brought out his shining protege D.B. to assist him in his high energy set and in what was a long awaited performance Bellafante did not disappoint in adding a level of showmanship to his show that was appreciated by all, 2 Stoned came with some lovely ladies and knocked out his performance (Microphone in the car) haha and I be damn if Script didn’t bring his crew through to smash it, Script, Duce and Junior took turns showcasing their skills before making way for the Freight Train…

    Big Tuck, the Dallas legend was in Waco and delivered a great performance. I had never seen Tuck perform but knew more then a few of his records and he didn’t disappoint, and kept rocking the crowd to the fan favorites. The highlights were definitely the crowds energy spike during “Tussle” and the impromptu twerk contest in the crowd during the set, Tuck being the veteran that he is commanded the crowd with call and response sections that kept the crowd entwined. At the end of his set, you could tell the crowd wanted more, and in a surprise twist, he told Script and Cyse to hit the crowd with some throwback requests and delivered an AMAZING encore. It was closer to closing time when Tuck left the stage, but not before freestyling and passing the mic to OOAK artist Junior. who had the entire building riding the beat with him screaming in hype! In another move that was uncommon with most artist he stayed and kicked it, chopping it up and taking pics. Another reason why Pirscription’s Birthday Party’s are a must attend.

       I spoke with Tuck for a sec and asked if he’s performed in Waco before and if he enjoyed coming back?

Tuck: I haven’t been here in about a year and a half, I appreciate Script bringing me out. Waco has always showed love and was one of the early supporters of the DSR movement.

(At that moment I was interrupted by the glare of a couple highly intoxicated females waiting to take a pic and as a journalist you learn to just get out of the way…more interview to come.) 

     So, cheers to another great time and if I know Script then you should just go ahead and get a couple VIP tickets and be ready.

Happy Birthday Script. Peace.

“Closed Caskets: Tracks 5-9″ by JLD

cc-5-9-blog pic

     I’m back with some more of my thoughts, this time for tracks 5-9 and the mixtape just keeps getting better. Let’s go.

     Track 5 “Mixtape Shit” explains the tape perfectly.  “What they do, we do it better so we remake it”.  This will be a crowd favorite and one everyone will love to see perform.

     Track 6 “Take Kare”, from the dramatic intro to the tone in Duce‘s voice as he spits “they hate to see a young king make it from the same place they stuck at, same place a n*gga had to move from around”. The whole vibe of this record is dope and Pirscription made sure he was gonna equal Duce‘s ferocity while spitting “momma got a second job, now at lunch I got extra crispitos”.

     I told you these dudes were spitting and it’s only 6 songs in.

     Track 7 “Conscious” is where the tape gets tricky, although Duce D is featured on this song solo, it is actually the first of two different tracks to the same beat……. and that in itself, is oddly intriguing.

     Track 8 “Bass” will be one of the most played records off the mixtape, Script does his thing on this hook, and shows he has a dope record on his hands. I don’t want to say too much but I will say, GIVE THIS A LISTEN and make sure you have your girl in the passenger seat.

     Track 9 “Pegasus” is the name, and this song is definitely on the rise, it’s a standout part of the mixtape being as it is the only real SOLO track on the mixtape. Duce D displays his lyrical cleverness in the most laid back of ways on this one, clinging onto the title nicely with “You can Ride to it, Get High to it, Fly Away”.

“Closed Caskets: Tracks 1-4″ by JLD

cc-1-4-blog1

        As I continue coverage on the mixtape Closed Caskets, I’ll take my personal favorites and give you guys my run down and thoughts, It’s available online here at oneofakindrecords.comso head over to the online store and grab that!!

       Track 1 “0-100″ begins with “Bite the hand that feeds you and you just might starve/ got the guts to match your rap, you can get split like gars/ One Of A Kind ain’t a label, it’s persona like ours’”. That’s the first line of the cd and DAMN, Pirscription wasted no time getting the point across and Duce sets the tone with his clever and hot topic rap lines, “Make these hits like we ordered to take your life/ I’m not Mayweather I bet I could take you wife” The balance works from the get go as it reminds us of classic rap groups that have had different agendas but the same end goal.

       Track 2 “Learn Somethin” has a great vibe and sticks to the script with a nice, braggadocio/punch line filled verse from Duce but the knowledge dropped by Script on this track stands out as he opens with “get off your ass and go get it, sitting still never earned nothing/ we can kick it like return punting” and then touches on hot topics such as Youth being informed voters, the legalization of Mary Jane and the possibility of it never happening, “a red state with a face lift sounds outrageous/ pigs might fly before Texans become legal weed tasters” is one that immediately became stuck in my head.

       Track 3 “C4″ was the first one to have a catchy record feel, the hook holds it together and the verses hold up. The hook is really on point and can compete as one of the best and most catchiest on the tape. Duce takes more of a serious approach on his verse, touching on failed successes, the hate from other rappers and his opinion on major labels. Pirscription meanwhile speaks on his hometown, the plight of small town artist and damn near riddle like rhymes that made me text him and ask what the hell does that mean, so listen and see if you can decipher what he’s saying.

       Track 4 “H.O.T.” is standard mixtape fare and will be some peoples favorite record, they flip the Bobby Shmurda, “Hot N” record and flex lyrical muscle, Duce uses a sped up flow while Script sticks to the basic and gives what you expect, perfect balance. The shout out to Texas was nice and the abandoning from the original flow was a nice surprise… not to mention the Willie Nelson sample.

       That’s my rundown of the first 4 records but you need to listen and let me know what you think. So until next time just remember, everyone,sometime or another has to eat the shit sandwich.

NEW VIDEO: “High Forever” – 4/20 Video Release From Denver Colorado!!

highforever-blog1This is a statement and only the beginning.

      Pirscription and Duce drop the second video from the collaborative mixtape Closed Caskets, it’s sure to be a fan favorite and with a message most of us can get behind it should be an exciting release. So light ya knew and enjoy some visuals from OOAK.

“Closed Caskets” is finally here!! (Get yours NOW!!)

cc-release-blog-pic

     You swing and he moves before the punch lands,he jabs and you anticipate it-lean back to the right, it misses. This is where the saying Steel sharpens steel would be a perfect anecdote. The challenge that comes with competing against someone who knows you well and can anticipate your moves is that you have to swing harder, quicker and with more surprise. You have to switch it up, be more creative and most of all..you have to go harder.

     That is what listening to Closed Caskets was like to me, it felt like two friends, label mates and fellow MC’s challenging each other. Closed Caskets is a collaborative effort between MC’s Pirscription and Duce D, both of One Of A Kind Records based in West, Texas. At first listen the first things that stick out is the choice of instrumentals, the vocal production and the focus on lyrics which work well to hold it all together.

      A lot of times the problem that arises when 2 mc’s do a project together is the lack of cohesiveness and in this case it wasn’t a problem, a lot of that has to do with the fact that it doesn’t feel rushed, has a nice flow and with 21 songs will give you enough material to last.

      So when you listen to this you will probably imagine 2 prizefighters fighting for respect, fighting into the final rounds and in this case it’s 21. So go ahead, push play and head into the fight and if you listen real close then you hear 2 friends who will be damn if one is outdone by the other

“Where outcast and beatniks would socialize” by: JLD

ftworth-reviewt-slider copy

    This past Saturday on March 14, We tried once again to bring Central Texas music to a bigger market. We succeeded.

           The venue was The Cellar, a bar type set up with multiple rooms and a downstairs bar. It has a history of being a place where outcast and beatniks would socialize, play music and drink during the 70′s. The stage was in the center room and elevated about 2ft, it’s a very intimate set-up which makes up most of it’s charm. There were 2 murals that caught our attention and they consisted of historical music figures drawn together, like Elvis on the toilet and Janis Joplin setting next to Jimi Hendrix.

FTWORTH-SHOW-PICWWSome (But not all) of us, making a pit-stop on the way to the venue. lol #PreGame

      We got there for sound check and still had time to kill, the venue is located right in the middle of TCU with many food choices, I had to introduce the Waco boy’s to Fuzzy’s Taco (Told you Jay, Gibbie, and T). We got back to the spot and started enjoying some beverages. It was a fun night and I even got to meet Steven Watkins of DFW.com who was there to capture the evening, here is the link to that! >> http://www.dfw.com/2015/03/16/978164/concert-review-sxsw-kickoff-party.html

         Thanks to Callie Dee and The Gitmo fam, yall got some talent and I look forward to working with y’all.

         The next week will be crazy for us as we head to Austin for my official showcase (http://schedule.sxsw.com/2015/events/event_MS30229), we will have some great articles, recaps and stories, so look forward to what is coming and thanks for riding with us. PEACE.

“I witnessed a murder this past Friday.” by JLD.

0-100 - blog pic

     As we gather here today to mourn the loss of some wack MC’s, we shall take time to say thank you to the ones not bending and folding, lying and pretending, or living a make believe life that will be revealed as a facade, AND THAT DAY IS HERE!!….. Well…… almost!

    Untill then, here is the first visual release from “Closed Caskets”, an OOAK revamp of “0-100″.

 

   Trash, could be defined as unwanted, nasty, no good or un-useable items and in this video the two rappers are seen literally taking the trash out. Is that an underlying narrative?

   After watching “0-100″, a surprise video release from OOAK last Friday, it is in my opinion, a metaphorical view of how almost all of us feel about the current state of hip-hop.

  The album planned for a Beyoncé style release some time between now and SXSW, I myself have been anticipating the record for a while now (I told Script he’s bullsh*tting) but, I now have confirmation that it is done and about to be pressed.

I want to encourage everyone to check out this video and see how you perceive it. Peace, I’m out.
