40. Ghetto Brothers – Power Fuerza

Ghetto Brothers Vest back

Ghetto Brothers’ Power Fuerza is a record created in 1971 by a South Bronx gang that turned into a band. This storied record was reissued this year. You know the Hip Hop story that turns the Warriors into Wild Style?

Something like that.

I think that BARACK OBAMA should have these dudes reform for his inauguration to promote Peace, Love ,Unity and Having Fun.

Twin Sister Speaks On Kendrick Lamar/Dr. Dre’s “The Recipe”

Yesterday, Kendrick Lamar ‘s song “The Recipe” that featured Dr. Dre and sampled Twin Sister’s “Meet the Frownies” had the internet all Paul Wall.   I am impressed that the TDE/Aftermath camp didn’t use a big song like MGMT’s “Electric Feel”, Foster the People’s “Pumped Up Kicks”  or like a Radiohead song.  But instead they took a bit of a fairly obscure indie rock group like Twin Sister. Don’t get me wrong Twin Sister had one of the best records of last year but still…

Kendrick Lamar ft. Dr. Dre “The Recipe” (produced by Scoop Deville)

Life & Times spoke to the “The  Recipe”‘s  Producer Scoop Deville:

L+T: Why’d you sample Twin Sister?
 I was on my way to airport when I heard this song on KCRW, an indie radio station in LA– it was a premiere for their single called “Meet The Frownies.” As soon as that record kicked in, it already had me captivated. Then that voice came on–”Smokin’ weeed with youuuu…” It just did something to me where I had a “hip-hop producer moment,” like almost the same feeling when Eminem dropped “Stan” and everybody was like what sample is that? Musically and production-wise, it was incredible that it could bring something new and fresh to hip-hop. My appreciation of true art and great music is how that happened. Twin Sister, the Universe connected us through music.

Twin Sister “Meet the Frownies”

And L & T’s also got Twin Sister’s Response

Twin Sister, whose “Meet The Frownies” was sampled: “The idea of Dr. Dre hearing something that we made makes my head explode. Scoop’s work on the track is inspiring, he used sounds we made as a tool to help him create his own world. We are all about that. Doesn’t hurt that Kendrick Lamar is amazing either. Section 80 was great, can’t wait for the new record.”

Listen: Kendrick Lamar “the Recipe” ft. Dr. Dre

Kendrick Lamar drops “the Recipe” with Dr. Dre. I think that sentence pretty much says it. Oh, yeah the hook is ode to Cali’s “Women, Weed & Weather”. This is off Kendrick Lamar’s upcoming album on TDE/Aftermath/Interscope.

A$ap Rocky Sole Classics Columbus In-Store & Kendrick Lamar Freestyle At The Schottenstein Center

Mp3: ASAP_Rocky-Houston_Old_Head_Prod_By_DJ_Burn_One 1.

Sole Classics had an A$ap Rocky in-store prior to Rocky playing with Drake & Kendrick Lamar at the Schott for the Club Paradise Tour. A lot people around town will prolly be stoked “That pretty mf” said he is against homophobia in a recent interview. And  It’s real cool that the Harlem rapper shot through Sole Classics. From the looks of the autograph wall; A$ap doesn’t look like he has a graffiti hand. Not that it anyone cares if he has a hand. Just an observation. He did put an inverted cross next his name.  I am also digging A$ap Ferg’s anarchy sign.

For more photos of the instore please visit Kings Rowe where I took these photos from.

After the jump is a video of Kendrick Lamar rocking an accapella later that evening at the Club Paradise Tour.
