#ImSoDetroit Takes Over Facebook

If you’re on Facebook and either are form Detroit or have friends that are from Detroit, then I’m sure you saw the #ImSoDetroit that dominated Detroit Facebook yesterday. Detroiters from all around shared their fondest memories of growing up in the motor city. I’m not sure who started it, but I saw a few posts this morning from some friends, and soon after, it spread like wild fire. All day yesterday I was cruising down memory lane while I read stories from friends, watched old commercials, and even listened a few tunes that reminded me of growing up in my beloved city, Detroit , MI. Kudos to whomever came up this idea. This was a great alternative to all the negative media that is constantly pushed down our throats about Detroit.

If you’re on FaceBook, search for #ImSoDetroit and enjoy!!!

“The World Is Yours” Hip Hop Documentary

Whaddup doe!!!

While I was browsing through my Instagram timeline, I came across a post showcasing an upcoming documentary about how the internet has impacted the Hip Hop INDUSTRY and how artists no longer need record labels to be successful. The World Is Yours speaks with industry officials and artists alike about how the need for a record label is pretty much null in void. They are currently running a Kickstarter campaign to aid in completing post-production. As a filmmaker and producer, let me tell you, post production is essential to a film and it can cost a pretty penny. Make sure you head over there and help them out.

In the mean time, check out the trailer:

Marv Won – Field Ni**a

If you’ve been following Road to Total Slaughter on Fuse, then you may have become familiar with Marv Won. Hailing from the great Motor City, Marv is no stranger to the world of Hip Hop. He’s become a staple in the Detroit Hip Hop scene. You may have seen him in 8 Mile, heard him on a Black Milk track, or have maybe seen him in a few Dwele A.B.D.P. vids. Either way, his name should be in your vocabulary.

Marv recently released his latest single Field Nigga which gives a critical look at what we deem as important and who is really down to do the dirty work. I think this song comes at a perfect time where there are so many issues going on in so many different cities. When will start standing for ourselves? Trick Trick can organize 100 men to prevent Rick Ross’ entry, but can we do the same to protest the water shut off in Detroit?

Nonetheless, make sure you download his single now. And while you’re at, cop his other projects as well. This one is my personal fav.

Check (and share) the video for Field Nigga:

Asante Amin – Lava Lampz

Whaddup doe!!

I want to share some music with you all. Those who know me know that I love music. Seriously. Why I don’t work in the music industry, I don’t know. (Yeah right…)
I want to introduce you all to an up and coming emcee and composer. New Orleans native Asante Amin just release his 3rd video “Lava Lampz” from his forth coming album The Visitor: Alter Destiny. Brotha is dope. He’s got bars and measures. Can’t deny that.

Check out his latest video and make sure you add June 24th to your calendar. Word on the street is he’s hosting an AMAZING event in Brooklyn that you all don’t want to miss.
