Brother Jules from MN’s KMOJ passed away on December 4, 2021. I found that tough to deal wi†h. This brother & I go way back to the first days of NASTYMIX Records. It was Brother Jules who debuted my artist Sir Mix-A-Lot on the MN airwaves of KMOJ. That small act developed into a forever friendship between us. (R.I.P.)

Fire Pick of the Week
January 17, 2022

What is good my Hip Hop friends!!? We are in 2022 — we made it!! I do hope everyone’s well during this New Year and that your hard work pays off in glorious ways for you.

Let’s kick off the New Year with some brand-new music! Our ‘Fire Pick of the Week’ goal is to share with you amazing music that we come across that maybe you’ve not heard of yet. We want to shine some light on the many dope artists that are out there making music.

For the first review this year, we bring you a soulful single from producer Sultan Mir (Fort Myers, FL) who brings us “Wisemen” (Self Released) featuring Ghost of the Machine (Worcester, MA) and Vic Monroe (Chicago, IL). Man, let me tell you, this song right here has got me excited for more music in 2022! Sultan uses a really melodic and soulful sample that is the base of this track, along with a snapping snare over a kick drum. The vibe is electric and easy from the start, with the strings flowing out of the speakers into your ears. Vic kicks it off talking about how he wished he could go back in time and tell his younger self to do his thing properly in life. The hook tells us that the “fools stay the same, but the wisemen change”. True indeed. Ghost of the Machine comes next with words of hope for us all as we experience the bumps in the road of life.

This song is a serious joint that my heads need to peep out. Here is the link to where you can cop it on bandcamp.com:

Keep it real out there my people!
One love til next time!!
