The first music video from DJ Premier’s DJ Premier: Hip Hop 50 Volume 1 is currently available via Mass Appeal. The “Remy Rap” video, created by DJ Premier, features Grammy-nominated Rapsody and legendary femcee Remy Ma, both of whom are from the Bronx. The music video, which was directed by Maya Table, pays homage to early-nineties Hip Hop, right down to the bucket hats, Cuban link chains, and DJ Premier scratching on a turntable. It also has grainy black-and-white imagery of inner-city building rooftops.

In addition to Remy and Rapsody, DJ Premier: Hip Hop 50 Volume 1 features Nas, Lil Wayne, Run The Jewels, Joey Bada$$, and Slick Rick.

“I will always seize the moment of being unique when it comes to releasing music,” said Premier. “To be a part of Hip Hop 50 is an additional blessing to preserving the culture.”

The release is the first of 10 EPs with new music celebrating Hip Hop 50. The next nine editions will be curated by Swizz Beatz, Mustard, The-Dream, Mike Will Made It, No I.D., Hit-Boy, Take A Daytrip, and Tainy.

To commemorate Hip Hop’s 50th birthday, Mass Appeal has launched a big #HipHop50 project that features strategic alliances, all-encompassing worldwide activations, and creative content and programming. In order to offer live event content, Mass Appeal has announced its relationship with Live Nation Urban. This collaboration will produce moments that will unite the voices that made hip hop a way of life, from Park Jams to Festival stages.

Screen Shot 2022 08 11 at 9.18.49 AM

Iconic emcee, poet, and entrepreneur, Comega, recently inked a partnership with NYC-based label Viper Records to release The Realness II, the highly anticipated sequel to his classic studio album, The Realness, (originally released on July 23, 2001). Executive Produced by Cormega, The Realness II is slated for release at the end of Summer, and features verses from his longtime friends Nas and Havoc, with more to be announced.
The Alchemist, Sha Money XLHavocand Big Ty, all of whom produced on The Realness, return for powerful tracks on The Realness II“I originally wanted to put out the album sooner, but it took patience and luck to get all the producers and artists back who appeared on the first Realness album on The Realness II. Although it took time, it was well worth it.” Additional tracks on The Realness II are produced by Harry Fraud, Large Professor, Streetrunner and more.

The first single to be released is “Essential,” produced by multi-platinum producer, HavocHavoc and I have known each other for years! He’s been on more Cormega albums than any other artist. I appreciate that Havoc put extra effort into my single, Essential. The lesson I’ve learned when selecting producers is that it’s not just about their name and recent hit, but the extra effort they put into your music. With Havoc I have it all, name, track record, and most importantly we have history and chemistry!”

TDE Artist Doechii Releases “she / her / black b*tch” EP

Iam Doechii

Doechii drops her first EP for Top Dawg Entertainment / Capitol Records she / her / black b*tch

The Tampa native comes out swinging as she flexes her distinct voice and versatile talents that range from quick-fire bars to seductive singing that cement her as Rap’s newest ‘it girl.’

Doechii lends her signature half-rap, half-singing flow over production from Kal Banx, Hit-Boy, Bankroll Got It and Devin Malik. Her EP is Executive Produced by Anthony ‘Top Dawg’ Tiffith and Anthony “Moosa” Tiffith Jr.  

The self-proclaimed ‘swamp princess’ noted that her EP title was a way for her to reclaim the power of being put down in the past. “Many times I’ve been referred to as a “b*tch” as a way to gaslight me out of certain spaces, something I think many people can relate to in one way or another,” says the 23-year-old.

“Lots of people will call you various names for doing something differently. So I decided to take ownership of the ‘Black b*tch’ and title my EP she/ her/ black b*tch and reclaim that motherf***ing power,” Doechii added. “So if you’ve ever been put down for being yourself, just remember you’re powerful and unapologetic- these songs are for you.”

The breakout star had an impressive 2021 gaining momentum with a new audience from her viral TikTok song “Yucky Blucky Fruitcake” and a dope feature on “Wat U Sed” from Isaiah Rashad’s The House Is Burning LP. 

The 5-track project follows up Doechii’s remix featuring fellow labelmate and GRAMMY winner SZA on “Persuasive,” which also made Obama’s Summer playlist.

Check out Doechii’s 13 minute mixture of Hip Hop, R&B and Electro-Pop, on she/ her/ black b*tch below.
