I got in contact with Jo Thrillz and everything is gravy. Might work together in the near future!
So I wake up this morning to see my Twitter “mentions” flooded with some song produced by me!? I check it out and it seems Canadian rapper (not Drake) Jo Thrillz recorded a track over “Rhymes Like These” off my instrumental album Trapped in the 90′s.
Just to be clear, I didn’t really “produce” the track, and Jo Thrillz never hit me up asking if he could use the beat. However, he clearly listed me in the production credits and the video title, which is more than some rappers have done that I actually worked with in person. It’s part of the territory when you release an instrumental album so it’s all good.
Anyways, I reached out to him so let’s see if he hits me back. In the meantime, check out his video.
The homey Boom Sny of Savage Regime threw together this quick video of me diggin at the last HPRS record show. Using it as my YouTube trailer. Instrumental in the background is from my instrumental album Trapped in the 90′s. Check it out.
My local homies Savage Regime recently filmed a low budget video to their track “Silent Hill“. For those that don’t know, the song is an homage to the video game and contains some creepy familiar scenes. I made the beat a few years ago (2007?) and they decided to not let it go to waste and rock on it. Check it out!
Just in time for back to old school! Peep the promotional video from my upcoming instrumental album/beat tape – Trapped in the 90′s. The album features 20 tracks inspired by all my influences from the golden era including Diamond D, Buckwild, Pete Rock, DJ Muggs, Da Beatminerz, Beatnuts, and many more. Lots of drum breaks, lo-fi sampling, and everything else we loved about the 90′s. Look for a free download right around back to school time.
The first question you probably have is, wtf is Turpentine Weed. It actually is a real plant, peep wikipedia if you don’t believe me. But that’s not where the name came from… I have a habit of naming my beats after something that has to do with the original sample (so I can remember). I thought the sample was from Stanley Turrentine, so I named the beat Turpentine (paint thinner if you don’t know). It’s actually a different Jazz artist with the first name Stanley, but he shall rename nameless for now. Anyways, Illz thought the name was cool, googled it and found out about the plant with a similiar name and the song was born.
