DJ Quest and Bas-1 Who What [music video]

DJ Quest is one of few "scratch" dj's who has remained a favorite of mine through the years.
If you aren't familiar with his music do yourself a favor and look up some of live dj footage. It's amazing stuff and easily findable on youtube. He was also responsible for "Ghetto Stash" with Eddie K which is a classic. "Who What" is the lead single off his upcoming album Questolous. I've never really heard anything Bas-1 was on before, except for compilations, but I have to say I was impressed. Check it out.

Ellay Khule's Riflepuppet and his son producing a beat [video]

This has got to be one of the greatest things I've seen in awhile. In this youtube clip the Rifle Puppet is finally unleashed on the world. Also you get to see Khule's 11 year old son create a beat on the spot.

Eddie K and Brandon B - We Got Trunk Dank [video/song]

Eddie K and Brandon B present Trunk Dank the newest project out on Gurp City. Though the names may not be familiar to some (living under a rock, or outside of the Bay), these are two of the best from the talented collective. Eddie K aka 88 has been holding it down for years, rapping for years with the Bullet Proof Space Travelers, and on his own successful solo albums.
You might best know Brandon B from the great Arizona based rap mega group Supermarket.

For the record, party raps are kind of limited to me, but they pull it off with class. Highly recommended!

Anyway, just check out the video. The single is catchy as hell. Check it out!

It's on i-tunes, people who use i-tunes.

Ellay Khule video interview on [5 parts]

Check out this five part video interview with Ellay Khule the Rifleman on Here Khule speaks his mind on a variety of crazy topics including: the origins of his style, the story behind the beef at the Anniversary, meetings with the producer from Above the Law, and much much more. He also breaks down his thoughts on why many at the Goodlife were never appreciated by the mainstream. I don't know about you, but these are stories that need to be told. Props to the interviewer for actually asking good, engaging questions.

I didn't know anything about before stumbling across the interview, but I must say that I was very pleasantly surprised, both by it's presentation and content. There are very few west coast sites that pay as much attention to detail. Check it out, it's worth clicking over. They also have video interviews up with NoCanDo, nosaj thing, flying lotus, Open Mike Eagle, etc.
