'What's Real?' is an independently produced Documentary that explores ideas of expression and education within the Hip Hop community. How has the corporate interest effected the culture? Featuring Chester P, R.A The Rugged Man, Brother Ali, Verb-T, and many more!
A film by Dean Huson.
Track: "Stuck in their Strategy' by Split Prophets
The hip-hop community was given something to get excited about recently, with a debut trailer for an upcoming independent documentary by filmmaker Dean Huson. What's Real? A Hip Hop Documentary is the directors first feature length outing, and it's certainly an ambitious one. The film features introspective interviews and tour footage from a veritable crème de la crème of British and US underground artists, and is set to explore definitions of "real" in the eyes of a rabid hardcore audience.
The trailer features thought-provoking sound-bites from US and UK heavyweights like RA the Rugged Man, Brother Ali, Verb T, Life MC, and Chester P, complimented by an appropriately dope beat by Split Prophets. So far, the full list of confirmed artists also includes; Immortal Technique, Jurassic 5, Cyrus Malachi, Dead Prez, Evidence, Q Unique, Genesis Elijah, Leaf Dog, I Am Many, Fliptrix, and Stig of the Dump, with the promise of more to come.
Summarising how the project came about Huson says, 'It's a big scene overall, and most of the documentaries out there tend to look solely at the commercial scene as a measure for success. The underground is holding its own right now, and a lot of great art is being produced that's actually socially relevant and inspiring'. Frustrated by a lack of exposure towards the music he loves, the director set out to create a showcase for independent talent, exploring perceptions of legitimacy in the genre. He goes on to explain, 'As a filmmaker, I have to avoid being biased, but the focal point is Hip Hop that isn't influenced in anyway by corporate interest. It poses the important question; Can you remain "real", and define yourself as an artist, in a world where business men and marketing executives frequently dictate the commercial success of your music?'
Mick Jenkins "Treat Me" Official Music Video Produced by Supa BWE & Mulatto Beats
DJBooth Top Prospect Mick Jenkins and Supa BEW aren’t running from the truth, aren’t hiding behind ignorance, they are attempting to tame the elephant in the room. Police brutality and racial discrimination has been overwhelming in 2014, which only makes songs like Treat Me Caucasian more significant and powerful. We need more fearless voices attempting to raise awareness, and promote ideals that break down these barriers plaguing our world. This cut can be found on Bwe and Mulatto Beats’ Hurt Everybody EP, out now, and for even more fearlessly innovative hip-hop, be sure to check out Mick Jenkins’ recent The Water[s] album. http://www.djbooth.net/index/tracks/review/mick-jenkins-supa-bwe-treat-me-caucasian
• Sacramento-born and raised brother duo Hippie Sabotage started to make music in the mid-2000s. Working closely with local producer Chase Moore during their early career, they mixed the cultural melting pot vibes of their hometown with hip-hop and produced beats for rappers such as J. Leake and Yukmouth. • They later collaborated with Chicago-based artists such as Calez of 2008ighties and Kami de Chukwu. • Hippie Sabotage developed and expanded their beats and soon incorporated more diverse influences on their tracks for a whole new host of rappers such as Alex Wiley ("Something to Say") and C Plus ("Callin' Me"). • They released their own material with the EP Vacants in early 2013 and followed this with a couple more singles ("White Tiger" and "Sunny") throughout the same year. • It was only in spring 2014 when singer Ellie Goulding posted their remix for "Stay High" by Swedish singer Tove Lo (songwriter for the likes of Icona Pop and Girls Aloud) on Instagram that they began to get worldwide attention. The song reached over a million hits following Goulding's endorsement and signaled a bright future for the duo. (Aneet Nijjar, Rovi)

• On n’entend pas beaucoup parler de Homeboy Sandman mais quand on l’écoute rapper, c’est comme si on l’avait toujours connu. Comme un monsieur Tout-le-monde qui s’est dit un jour « tiens, et si je devenais un rappeur? ». Un rappeur aussi original que humble et très réfléchi, comme le montre Hallways, son second opus chez Stones Throw.
• Comme pour son précédent opus First of a Living Breed, le MC du Queens fait de la musique rap avec beaucoup de liberté d’esprit et de liberté artistique. On serait presque désappointé d’entendre quelqu’un comme lui déclamer des vers sur des sujets qui nous touchent tous avec une intelligence rare. Les premières secondes de « 1,2,3 » (produit par DJ Spinna) sont en fait déroutantes. Il est capable de passer d’une échelle nationale à celle de son propre être tout en parvenant admirablement à captiver l’attention et faire réfléchir, il peut dépeindre la vision illusoire des Etats-Unis en moins de trois minutes sur « America, the Beautiful » comme se poser des questions existentielles sur « Problems« . Homeboy Sandman attire autour de lui des gens un peu comme lui, des rappeurs indés uniques en leur genre, comme Blu, J-Live ou Kurious.
• Des artisans du beats lui ont prodigué des beats pittoresques, que ce soit Jonwayne (faut-il que je vous reparle de ce gars hallucinant?), Oh No ou encore J57. On peut les saluer pour leurs morceaux qui restent dans les esprits pour leurs paroles et ces instrumentaux qui sortent de l’ordinaire. Ce sample de violon sur « Activity« , cette charmante boucle de voix sur « Stroll« … Je ne sais même plus si on peut encore parler de indie hip-hop sur les deux derniers magnifiques titres à la guitare acoustique.
• This almost doesn't feel right.... A one listen review for an album?! I mean, for Gambino, a semi-suprise, low-key mixtape was the perfect one listen review subject, but an album? One that I personally have been waiting a long time to hear? Oh hell no! Oh hell yes!
• Being a DMV native and lover of hip-hop (regardless of geographic location) I have been following Logic's career with a close eye. Watching him flourish into one of the most exiting, young emcees in the game has been a blast. Now, with his debut album, Under Pressure, finally (almost) here, I couldn't wait to dig in. I also couldn't wait to write about it! As impatient as you are to read reviews, I am just as impatient to write them. I want to talk about this stuff so bad, but I refuse to make broad sweeping generalizations about an album's classic/not-classic potential before I've really given the project a chance over the course of months. It's not fair to an artist who has spent so much time to deliver something special and it's not fair to you, the fans. So let's meet in the middle.
• I know J. Cole thinks one listen reviews are "fucking up hip-hop," but what if we embrace that? First impressions count for something right? You only listen to an album for the first time once. So with that in mind, I dug into Logic's Under Pressure like a kid ripping into that first present on Christmas; would I find a pair of socks or that cool new video game console? One listen, and my initial thoughts as I'm listening; wrong or right, it's what popped into my head (#nofilter). Let's do the damn thing!
Une review plus qu'enthousiaste à propos de l'album "UNDER PRESSURE" (Def Jam) de LOGIC !
An artist’s narrative is what makes him or her either intriguing or dismissible before the music is heard. In the world of modern urban music, there isn’t much that hasn’t been portrayed, embodied or talked about in a fresh way. Every once in awhile, someone enters the game with a new perspective which offers an interesting slant on the culture with an opportunity to influence the masses in a positive way. That claim has been made by many before in the past by many a rapper, but tell me if you’ve heard this before: a Venice, California native, son of a divorced-blind poet, who grew up playing both the piano and violin, with a Bachelor’s degree of Iranian descent. Enter Azad Right.
“My story is something that people should know about. Hip-Hop culture has grown so much and I'm living proof. Ten years ago, an Iranian-American rapper was an impossible career choice. In 2013, I plan to make it my reality.”

"Has a president ever grew up in a trailer?" G-Jet asks rhetorically on the fifth single from A3C Volume 4, "Richard Pryor." Setting the mic ablaze, the Texas spitter pays homage to one of Richard Pryor's most notorious anecdotes, as he laces A Squared Production's beat with witty bars and a catchy hook. The video for "Richard Pryor" was directed by E.T. Tattoo for Grindlife Films and shows G as he maneuvers from the stage to the street in Austin, Texas.
A3C Volume 4 will hit stores worldwide on October 7th via A3C / iHipHop Distribution
Buddy's "I Don't Think So" is the fourth single and music video from A3C Volume 4.

About "A Day In The Life"
"When I originally made the beat, it was just a main melody loop of strings and keys with some programmed drums over it. Sonically, I was inspired by Raekwon & Ghostface's song "Heaven & Hell", but I wanted to make it an introspective record about a hustler's come up from the street life to the rap game. And as time passed, I kept going back to the beat and adding more elements. I chopped the melody up more, I played live drums over it, and I wrote a hook that I felt required a female vocalist. So I reached out to the best female vocalist I knew, Macie Stewart, formerly of the popular group Kids These Days. She came to the studio, re-worked the hook, and added some beautiful harmonies throughout. I then sent the beat to AZ, who I knew would set off the track in a classic way. He rapped from the perspective of a hustler that survived the game, did it his way, and is now living the good life. That same approach and theme continued on with Havoc of Mobb Deep and Freeway, both of whom added their own personal narrative to a day in the life of a hustler. Lastly, I orchestrated even more live instrumentation into the track with Graham Burris playing some bass guitar and some live horns at the end by Nico "Donnie Trumpet" Segal, also formerly of the group Kids These Days. Overall, the song has an epic and triumphant feel to it. I'm very happy with the way it came out. It's one of my favorite songs on my album and I hope everyone enjoys it.”
