MP3: Racist Joe aka Daymon Dodson “B*tch, You Don’t Know Sh*t!”

MP3: Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit!

At the 6th Annual Daymon Day Parade on September 17th, we will be handing out 7 inches of Racist Joe’s cult hit song Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit produced by DJ Bombay.

Song is hilarious as Daymon raps about mythical sexual exploits that resonate all the way out to Polaris over the theme music to Soap.

And during times like these, who can’t relate to the phrase, “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit!”?

Thanks to Michael Carney for designing the label and cover. Also special thanks to Mus-i-col for the quick turn-around on pressing, and Carabar for being supportive of this record from day 1.

After the jump watch people sing “Bitch, You Don’t Know Shit” on the corner of 5th and High at the end of the 2009 Daymon Day Parade. Continue reading

Interview: Michael Carney Talks About the Grammy Award Winning Packaging of the Black Keys Album Brothers

(Photo from www.Grammy.Com)

The Black Keys’s art director Michael Carney won a Grammy for the packaging of the the Black Keys’s album Brothers. The Black Keys also won Grammy’s for Best Alternative Music Album and Best Rock Performance By a Duo or Group With Vocals.

I interviewed Michael Carney back in December for an article that I wrote in the Other Paper when he was initially nominated.

Here is the full interview where Mike talks about what is unique about Brother’s packaging, CCAD, Columbus, and more.

Where were you when you found out you were nominated officially?

I was in my apartment in Fort Greene with my friend Mike Swen refreshing the Grammy’s website when my brother called and told me.

Are you going to the ceremony?


What was the last official ceremony that you have been to?

I guess graduation from Art School, unless a Trey Songs concert counts.

In this age of downloading…what role do you think art direction plays in what gets purchased, and what gets downloaded?

I have found in the past few years larger labels are actually willing to go over the top when it comes to packaging. It seems like right now it is really easy to get people to listen to your music, but to get people to actually buy it is a whole different story. There are so many bands that seem like they are huge because they get tons of press, but they don’t actually sell any records.

I don’t think good art direction means that a record will sell, but I do think that bad art direction could easily keep your record from selling. Continue reading

Rick Ross and Jayz address Freemason rumors. I’m way into Rick Ross’ verse. Shit he was already a prison guard, and took his name from the drug kingpen that sold crack unknowlingly for the CIA to help fund the contras.
Why not be a free mason?
Jay-z uses the song to call people that thought he was an operative of Satan morons.

The Black Keys Featured in Rolling Stone Magazine

So the Cav’s might have let us down Ohio…But  The Black Keys are about to put Ohio on their back. First up.. the May 27 issue of Rolling Stone Magazine(Keith Richard cover).

Turn to page 48 and oops… a feature about the Akron duo. Let’s file this on some shit you don’t talk-about until it’s time type article. The article dives into Pat’s divorce, and how the turmoil strengthened Dan and Pat’s relationship. The article quotes donewaiting/bsa brother Michael Carney on the matter.

But this isn’t a sad story. It’s a 11:55 right before the band gears up to see how far they can take this Rock N Roll shit. And they got they mind right. Back in my day the kids woulda called it either bossed up or swag surfin.
Love the article. It conveys Pat’s sense of humor and mindset pretty well. And it has them clowning boring ass Band of Horses.

Issue on stands now. New Album drops Tuesday which same issue gives a glowing review,
Dream all you like but you best not sleep.
