2DBZxSXSW: The Dopehouse, Part Deux

Last year’s edition was fun. It was simple, really: we didn’t want to throw a “showcase,” so instead we rounded up a couple of friends, shoved them all into a tiny loft and spun music all night, nearly crashing through the floor in the process. So, why not pull it off again for the 2013 edition of SXSW? And how do we make it even better?

By upgrading the formula, and making The Dopehouse a day party x rave.

The 2013 edition of the Dopehouse will once again be a place where you can get hammered and drunkenly sing along to “No Hands” and other (probably ignorant and quite possibly detrimental to society-laden) tunes while some random-ass chick you just met at one of those free showcases earlier in the week grinds feverishly on your pelvis… except this time it will be in the middle of the day, in a much larger (read: much larger) venue and with more special guests, with a couple of performances thrown into the mix to boot. Why throw a party in the middle of the day? Why not?

Sounds good? Good.

Friday, March 15th is the date. Full details to come next week.

Futuristic – Long Days, Cold Nights f. SwizZz (Video)


Directed by Jakob Owens.

Right before I closed the laptop lid for a much needed break from the internet, Bootleg Kev hit me with a new video from an artist out of Phoenix by the name of Futuristic. Can’t really say I’m a fan of his rap alias, but it’s the music that counts… and that he’s got covered. Check out the clip above for “Long Days, Cold Nights” which features Funk Volume’s very own SwizZz and can be found on Futuristic’s recently-released album, Chasing Down A Dream. And just incase you need another preview, hit the jump to watch the video for “Don’t Mind If I Do” featuring Dizzy Wright and Jarren Benton.

Hello,

My name is Devin Moses but my rap name is Ms.DevMo. I am a female rapper from Los Angeles and I love rap and hip hop music. I am releasing a music video today for my song called “Wrong or Right” and I would love if you could feature it in one of your blogs. I was heavily influenced by Hopsin at the time I wrote this song and now the music video is finally out! These are just my thoughts on life these days.
Thank you so much for your time and take care.
DevMo Media:
Best,
Ms.DevMo

Heath McNease – Groundhog Day

[embedplusvideo height=”450″ width=”640″ standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/pDOgwdNUc2k?fs=1&hd=1″ vars=”ytid=pDOgwdNUc2k&width=640&height=450&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=1&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=&notes=” id=”ep1962″ /]

Hi. My name is Heath McNease. I’m an independent hip hop artist/singer songwriter out of Atlanta, GA. I am a full time touring musician, and I just released a brand new mixtape called “Jesus Shuttlesworth…The Mixtape”. The title is inspired by NBA superstar Ray Allen’s character in the Spike Lee film “He Got Game” . It features a ton of complex and pleasant rhymes over 21 of my favorite beats of all time. I put out a ton of music with original beats and production, but for this project I really wanted to put my bars over some truly iconic tracks as well as some personal favorites.

I also just posted 2 videos in correlation with the project here… http://youtu.be/RvOTgVSdEy8  and here… http://youtu.be/pDOgwdNUc2k
My main website is http://heathmcneasemusic.com and I’m on twitter at @theheathmcnasty
Thanks so much for your time. I hope to hear from you soon!

So I’m 3 videos in on the road to “Making Of Ramses” and the love has been great.  Here’s the 4rd video I’m dropping it’s called “Theory”.
I just wanted to get busy with this one a little bit.  I hope you enjoy it and I’d appreciated any feedback for sure.  I hope you are able to support and post the video on the site – I’d definately appreciate that too.

Produkt – Father Forgive Me by ProduKt

[embedplusvideo height=”260″ width=”480″ standard=”http://www.youtube.com/v/rKHAHnATtk0?fs=1&hd=1″ vars=”ytid=rKHAHnATtk0&width=480&height=260&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=1&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=&notes=” id=”ep7816″ /]

Artist: ProduKt

 
Subject: Bronx rapper Produkt gets his mob boss on for the visual of his latest clip, “Father Forgive Me.” In the clip, the rapper hooks up with 1st Born, puffing Cuban’s and discussing business over dinner with his associates, as a sexy violinist adds to the instrumental. Later, a traitor is clipped for betraying the family.

Raised in the Castle Hill section of the Bronx, Produkt was no stranger to the poverty and violence plaguing his community. While his older siblings found refuge in the explosion of the gang culture of the mid 90s, he found his tranquility in making money. After running in the streets, it was finally music that sent him on the straight and narrow

 

It Don’t Stop by MartinSky

Title: Martin $ky – “It Don’t Stop”
Artwork: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BD4wF3oCQAA4JyX.jpg:large
Track info: This joint is off up my upcoming tape titled Time(less) which is set to drop April 12th. Also, it’s one of my first singles I’ve dropped since the “Invitation” video. Two of my favorite producers of all time came together on this joint though, so when I heard it I knew I had to write something to it. This is what ended up happening. Hope you’re messing with it.
