The Homies

With the buzz of Lite aka Coolroy's latest mixtape "Out to Lunch" it got me thinking about how far the Homies have come and how much more there is to expect from all the great people that we call the Felonious Family.

First off our very own Toby C. dropped his new website stuffed with some of the best photography you can find on the internet in one stop. For real, Doin' it!

Then you have our boy Frankie Martinez who has been honing is craft for years and recently put on by SkateBook as a staff photographer alongside names like Strickland, Ballard, and Dalgart. Some pretty good company for a great young Skateboard Photographer from LA. Oh! Did I mention he has his own Blog on SkateBook as well?

Our boy Ricci Rucker aka Ruckazoid has been at the top of his game for years and is so ever evolving that people usually don't get what he is doing musically until years later when it has influenced the Pop spectrum and filtered back down to the masses. He is your favorite producer's favorite producer, but they won't tell you that! Now that Vinyl and DJing in general is making a comeback he is definitely getting more exposure and a new generation of heads are finding out about his significant contributions to the game (e.g. Controller One Turntable). He also has a huge new project coming out titled "Daimond Studded Mothaship".

Do I even need to tell you how big our Homies over at 9Grand are doing it?! Mark, Geatty, Carter, and Derrick are hustling like those African dudes in the LA Marathon! Burnin' fools left and right with their quality, execution, and design aesthetic. It's an inspiration working alongside these guys, and to be able to truly call them our Family.

To all our Fam, Keep it Movin yall!

Good Eats.

Our homie Lite (aka Coolroy) drops a long anticipated mixtape of previous unreleased tracks. Something to hold the people over until a proper full length release is dropped. Representing a new breed of LA emcees and showing his versatility in song writing with this kaleidoscope of sound featuring the likes of Little Brother, Pink Floyd, and Flying Lotus to name a few. Already a favorite in the Felonious house and getting great reviews on the blogosphere, so what are you waiting for? Download the mixtape free at 2DopeBoyz.

The Friday Tre.

I love doing the Friday Tre, because it gives me some time to revisit albums and artists that I might not otherwise have on rotation at the moment. This week I draw Quincy Jones (you can have your Ye's and Dre's this guy right here is MY favorite producer of all time!), Sound Providers, and.... Los Tigre Del Norte?!! I told you the crates is deep, son. Something for everybody, even your little cousin's Quinceanera!

The Friday Tre.

Today's three pulls from the crates provide some great memories from when I was a youngster. Starting out with Klymaxx, a lot of you might not remember but they were an all girl group from the early 80's that reached #4 on the US R&B charts with this single "Meeting in the Ladies Room".

Next is L.A. Dream Team with "Rockberry Jam" b/w "Funky Fresh", Talk about some OG LA Hip-Hop! I used to spin this record at all the B-Boy jams and it would GO OFF! The original pioneers in West Coast Electro Hip-Hop, The L.A. Dream Team!

The last one goes without saying, the Record of all records, by your favorite artist's favorite artist..... MJ with Thriller! Have a good weekend, and keep it nice n' easy people.

Thumb Control

LA's Legendary Hip-Hop label Delicious Vinyl just released an iPhone app. The game takes some of their most notable classics like "Bust a Move", "Born To Roll" and of course "Passin’ Me By" and puts them on a Rock Band/DJ Hero style interface making you a "Virtual DJ". A cool time waster for all the Hipster-Hoppers out there, but I think I will stick with my decks and old-school Vinyl. Check out the promo video.

The Friday Tre.

This Friday, the random pulls from the crates produce a couple gems that haven't shined in a while! We have People Under The Stairs "O.S.T.", Suicidal Tendencies, and Shotgun & Klever's "Dirty South Breaks". Keep it funky and have a good Friday!
