Listen: DJ PRZM Presents 3 Member Structure (3MS) – “Sick, Senile, & Crazy”

I am still working on what the fuck I am gonna write about this Columbus Hip Hop classic from 1999 that Bru Lei just put on soundcloud. Until then I am drinking a fucking beer and enjoying myself. AS YOU SHOULD.:

MP3:Blueprint-Who EP

MP3:Blueprint-Who EP

Blueprint’s latest EP has him sampling the Who EP. So you Rock N Rollerz might light this one. The bulk of the content is Print discussing how he worked hard to get where he is at when other people had different ideas. Donewaiting readers might take note of track 3, “See Thru”, Print’s lo-fi song, where he shouts out DJ Przm, TNV and PHS. Illogic is on Track 5, “Pain” in which Print revisits the Teenage Wasteland sample he used on Illogic’s “1000 Whispers” and then Best Buy told him he wasn’t allowed to when Weightless reissued Celestial Clockwork through Raptivism.
There are three versions of Blueprint Who. This is the free version. To purchase or look for more info please check www.weightless.net.

Blueprint is currently on tour With Atmosphere, DJ Rare Groove, Budos and Grieves

RIP DJ PRZM….MP3:DJ Przm Presents the Letter People

(Via Get Right Columbus)

MP3:DJ Przm Presents the Letter Peopl

Today is the Three Year Anniversary of DJ Przm passing. Cashola uploaded one of Przm’s classic compilation’s the Letter People to the Get Right Blog about an hour ago.
Przm would produce 18 song albums and sell them at the Fonoluts Hip Hop night until he lost interest in them, and then these cds would dissappear. I think 50 copies of the Letter People existed and I’ve had it stolen from me twice, and i probably stole a copy from someone at some point. So i am really happy Cashola uploaded it.
Pos can correct me, but this cd is prolly from 2000-2001.
The cd itself is raw, minimal Hip Hop that invokes but doesn’t bite Wu Tang, Pharoah Monche if he was an asshole and Mobb Deep.
For younger doods, imagine 30 black doods(a couple white doods) that could rap, dress, pull a fly girl,drink and fight partying at Bernie’s and on like Blake and Patterson.(OSU campus for non-Columbus people.Which is now Twee or jocks.) Continue reading

Daymon Day 2009 Photos & Videos

A few weeks ago we celebrated the 4th annual Daymon Day here in Columbus. We had a basketball tourney, tribute mural, emcee battle, parade and a rowdy dance party. We got our Rucker park on and then brought it into the streets.

For those that aren’t familar with Daymon Day but like things perhaps reading this article before or after viewing the following videos and pictures might give you some background info.

This video shot by A.J.(i think) shows the parade.

Watch it if you think marching 300 plus people in the middle of the road to Black Sabbath, Dilla, Cam’ron, M.O.P. , DJ Przm, Camu Tao, Jim Jones,Pharoah Monche and Racist Joe instrumentals to honor their fallen loved ones on an OSU gameday sounds interesting.

Cue the Pete Rock Horns…

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of Camu Tao’s death. Memorial day BBQ’s in Columbus poured out a little liquor and T.R.O.Yed the fallen Columbus Hip Hop supernova.

Pos 2 posted on an unreleased S.A. Smash song on the Weightless message board with this description:

…it’s an unreleased sa smash track from smashy trashy. to my knowledge this was one of the 1st recordings for the lp. przm gave me a tape so we could listen to it in the car of some of the songs they had recorded. it was fuck you 2, jerezyed out, and last night…the one with the led zepplin sample. not sure why it did not make the cut, but it’s a great track.

the quality isn’t the best. the highs are a little low. and you can here pops from time to time to where i am guessing when przm taped this, he just had it recorded to high

DJ Pos 2’s Ohio Hip Hop Comp

Pos2 with Blowfly at Magnolia Thunderpussy.

Columbus Hip Hop mainstayDJ Pos 2 recently curated an Ohio History Comp for bigtime backpack website Philaflava.
All you Ohio music nerd/historians should give it a split second because iono..its Ohio history.
Hip Hoppers should rejoice that he offered up the 3ms joint that the “Hold the Floor” instrumental was originally made for.

DJ Przm Video-He Changed His Style Up

YouTube Preview Image

Przm always carried his handycam around. And pretty much he only taped girls. Bru Lei gave me a dvd-r of some of Przm’s footie last year. It was funny because there would be like 34 seconds of performances, and then immeadelty the camera would switch to girls backsides. It wouldn’t even be like attractive girls. But I mean..Shit was funny cause you could P’s thought process like “this rapper.he sucks….WHO IS SHE? Yeah, I see you girl.”

Anyway, Bru edited down some of Przm’s tapes and made the above video. And to Przm’s credit. It’s a video full of ugly white girls.

Copywrite, RJD2 and DJ Przm Mentioned on Hip Hop Site’s Best & Worst Lists

Hip Hop Site is one of the larger online Underground Rap retailers. What makes them a little different from their competitors is that HHS has managed to keep their non-retail content a centerpoint and respected. And every year some Columbus groups make the list, for better or worse. I have cut and pasted the lists Columbus artists made this year.

10 Best Emcees Of The Year

Oh boy, this one will cause some arguments, but that’s the point of lists, right? The main criteria for selecting these artists was that they must have had at least one full-length album or mixtape (aka “the new album”) this year. So no, as much as we love Rakim, he didn’t make the list this year, because he didn’t release shit. The results are also based on pure skill, not style. So yeah, T.I. is cool-as-a-fan and all, but this is about the written words, not how they are said. Now start arguing.

1. Jay-Z (American Gangster)
2. Common (Finding Forever)
3. Lil’ Wayne (Da Drought 3)
4. Ghostface Killah (Big Doe Rehab, The 8 Diagrams)
5. Royce Da 5’9 (The Bar Exam)
6. Talib Kweli (Eardrum, Liberation)
7. Phonte & Big Pooh of Little Brother (Get Back)
8. Lupe Fiasco (The Cool)
9. Apathy (Baptism By Fire, It’s The Bootleg Muthafuckas Vol. 2, No Place Like Chrome)
10. Copywrite (The Jerk Vol. 0)

The 5 Most Disappointing Albums Of 2007

1. T.I. – “T.I. Vs. T.I.P.”
After “King”, we thought T.I. could do no wrong, but then he delivered the sub-par “T.I. Vs. T.I.P.”. We really tried to find songs on that record to like, and there were a few, but it was a massive let down after his 2006 release.

2. Pharoahe Monch – “Desire”
We guess old Monch wanted to get in on some of that hip-pop, cross-genre Gnarls Barkley money, and the result was “Desire”. Unfortunately, nobody really desired this LP. Sure, it had a few moments that reminded us of why we like Pharoahe in the first place. But songs like his Elvis rendition, “Body Baby”, or the Gospel road-to-nowhere, “Push”, left us scratching our heads.

3. 50 Cent – “Curtis”
Wow, you’d think after all the tough talk 50 was doing prior to the release of this LP, not to mention the stakes being extra high going up against Kanye, he’d deliver us another banger. Not so. The album did have it’s share of hot singles, but so much of the rest of it was filler, overflowing with braggadocio about A) how rich he is now B) how good he is in bed (so seductive!) and C) how big of a gangster he is. Not surprising, but with a title like “Curtis”, we expected a more introspective look at the guy – we guess that’s all there is to him.

4. Will.I.Am – “Songs About Girls”
We had high hopes for Will, after a strong series of hot beats for other people in 2006 (Nas, Game, Justin). Unfortunately, Will’s solo “debut” (this is like his third record, yo) was critically panned thanks to his strange attempts to be one of those cool rapper/singer Cee-Lo/T-Pain/Akon types. It must really suck to have something like “The Donque Song” (note the artistic spelling of “donkey”) as a part of your musical legacy, when in fact the single didn’t do donkey dick.  

5. RJD2 – “The Third Hand”
As much as we love ourselves some RJD2, we didn’t love The Third Hand. Make no mistake, RJ’s still got it – just one year earlier he delivered us the superb Things Go Better With RJ and Al LP with Soul Position. Problem was, RJ sang all over this LP. He’s not so bad on vocal chops, but let’s face it, we buy RJ’s records for the beats. A decent record, but you’ll still catch us rocking the instrumental version. 

Rest In Peace:

1. Pimp C
2. Big Moe
3. Disco D 
4. Stack Bundles
5. DJ Przm
