For me, one of the most underated talents in the Bay is Eddie K. For those who don't know, he's guested on a bunch of Z-man's and Sacred Hoop albums in the past. You might also remember him from the Easy Rider - So Much Drama In the Industry b/w 95 7-inch with Joe on the flip. In any case, we were pleased to see that he had a myspace page and a ton of new and solo projects lined up.
The highlight of the page was definitely the video for "Ghetto Stash" featuring DJ Quest of the Bullet Proof Space Travellers. Check it out!
Pharcyde producer J-swift documentary "1 More Hit"
More Pharcyde related news of note. Pharcyde producer J-swift is the focus of a documentary coming out in 2006 called "1 More Hit." The resulting story seems to be an all too familiar, and terribly sad account, of yet another musical icon's fall from grace.
"Uncovering the truth about the music industry, crack and reality television, the documentary film "1 More Hit" follows the life of Hip Hop producer J Swift, formerly of The Pharcyde as he loses his fame and fourtune to a crack addiction. While homeless, J gets a chance at a comeback, landing a reality show with a major cable network. While taping, the network soon learns that reality television and crack addictions are a dangerous combination."
