Bottom Brick: Live Fast Or Die Slow EP

MP3: Lets Go!

Though they never went anywhere, it has now been a few years since Columbus’ Bottom Brick released a new album. After keeping busy with other projects in the meantime, the hip-hop trio now returns with their new EP Live Fast Or Die Slow.

In only 17 minutes of run-time, they succeed in producing a condensed package of classic-minded hip-hop that continues to evolve. Most of the tracks are produced by rapper/producer Seance, whose results range from the synthy, smoldering boom of lead single “Take It To The Top (On)” to the battle swagger of “Never Left,” featuring a masterfully cut-up hook from DJ Product. The menacing loop of opening track “Let’s Go!” provides a perfect backdrop for MC Adjust to burst out of the gates explosively. These five tracks are a great starting point to discover Bottom Brick’s material, and seem to predict more bangers to come.

Bottom Brick will celebrate the release of Live Fast Or Die Slow with a release party at Carabar Saturday night. Joining them on the bill are fellow local hip-hop heavyweights Zero Star (check the link for 3 free new joints), Stonecraft, and DJ Detox. Admission is free.

Zerostar is bringing one of the Nation’s most respected battle circuits to Columbus today. Locals Meta4ce, Tyrless and Searius Add battle emcees from all over the nation.
Here is some old Omnimix footage of a really young Meta4ce serving Scribble Jam champ at the time Adeem in front of Bernies. (this battle was instigated by Andrew Kern when he was like 15.)

MP3:Fabrashay A feat Zerostar and Le For The Uncool-My City(Produced By Path)

MP3:Fabrashay A Ft Zerostar and Le For the Uncool-My City (produced by Path)

In the greatest team-up since KMD’s and Brand Nubian’s “Nitty Gritty” Milk N Syrup, and Weightless are on the same track. Okay is nothing like that song but it is still nice to think about.
The song is produced by Path from All Eyes Path. It starts off unassuming and sparse and develops into something special. The email I got for this song said it was “untitled” so it may not be called “My City”.
Regardless, the song is off of “the Art Show” Fabrashay’s upcoming album. It’s dope and if you don’t download then hopefully you don’t listen to rap and are just waiting for more pictures of bearded men playing ukelalees.

Sidenote:Besides catching Zerostar at “get right, getting right” you can also catch him hosting “Grindtime 2 I Still Get it in Ohio” it is an emcee battle October 16th at Skullys.
More on that later this week.

Grindtime:Zerostar vs. Remyd Battle in Chicago

YouTube Preview Image

I am not gonna pretend to be interested in battle rapping on the most part. It usually comes off like a bunch of Hip Hop comic book nerds on some Marcon meets dooded playing Mortal Kombat with 15 friends in dirtweed basement on Friday Night.

 But Columbus rapper Zerostar battled St. Louis rapper Remyd in Chicago. From my understanding this Grindtime  battle league is a big deal. Remyd takes it, but I feel like Zero proves why Columbus is better than most places cause the hip hop scene isn’t a bunch of corny nerds.

Remyd best verse is his third where he basically calls Zero a hipster by referencing Drake and Jay-z. Which is funny cause Zero is backpacking  a mfer, that just happens  to live in a city that isn”t redundant. Almost blame the MilkBar on that one and having unique rappers like Jakki in our cities history.

Anyway, Look at the fat whitedood who looks like he is getting an erection everytime Remyd raps.

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.
