DJ 3
rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
Week of March 20, 2017

BACK at ya this week with another hot track for your ears!

Sampling has been an integral part of rap music for many years. Some of the most amazing producers have sampled the greats of soul, funk, rock ‘n roll and other genres to create masterpieces in rap music history. Run DMC’s sampling of Aerosmith’s hit “Walk This Way” catapulted Run DMC’s career into the stratosphere and showed the world the power of rap music and the art of sampling.
I think Cee’s new single called “Separate Ways” (produced by Notion, his brother) could do for Cee what “Walk This Way” did for Run DMC’s career. This song, sampling Journey’s hit “Separate Ways”, rocks powerfully with the vocal sample layered over banging drums as Cee and Notion both go in hard with the flow. They let the listener in on how they are pushing away from negative industry energy while holding on to the success they have been blessed with.
The 2
nd release of 2017 for Cee on his Soundcloud music series is something this writer is enjoying banging thru the speakers.
Go grab it DJ’s, it will heat up your playlist!!
Well, I think that should take you thru the week!
Be safe and love one another!
Til next week . . . Peace!!
DJ 3rd Degree

(R.I.P. To My Brother In Hip Hop Wordsayer)

"Seattle's Hip Hop community is in mourning after news of Jonathan Moore’s passing, which spread throughout social media platforms. He was 47. The news itself has been lighting up timelines of fans, musicians, and acquaintances of Moore.”
"His reach in the city was far and wide. He was an artist, performing with the classic Seattle Hip Hop group
Source of Labor as MC Wordsayer. He was a manager (founder of the Jasiri Music Group) and he was the host of Sunday Night Sound Sessions on KUBE, where he kept the music of local artists in heavy rotation. He was instrumental in bringing Hip Hop from the Central District to Seattle’s Downtown music scene, helping book crucial early breakthrough shows for local artists at the all-ages RKCNDY nightclub. His list of credits and credentials go on and on.” Seattleweekly.com

Barring any setbacks, “All Eyez On Me” is slated to arrive in theaters on Pac’s birthday.

Lionsgate’s Summit Entertainment has acquired the U.S. rights to the Morgan Creek Entertainment film that follows the life of the iconic 1990s rapper and has set it for release on June 16, on what would have been Shakur’s 46th birthday. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Recently, Benny Boom defended casting Hollywood newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr. for the flick.

“I feel like I definitely got the right actor to play Tupac,” he said of Hollywood newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr. “It was important to get an unknown [actor] so people can lock into him and his performance versus any sort of baggage that another actor would bring,” Douglas revealed. “This role is just too important for Hip-Hop culture to mess it up.”

Back in September, Shipp talked about portraying the late music star
and what fans should expect.

“It’s not even comparing that, because it’s 2Pac, and this is a global star and icon. This is one of the biggest biopics that will ever be done. Next to Michael Jackson, you know what I’m saying? As far as the people in the world that’s respected and loved when it comes to entertainment and as big as Pac, it’s Mike . . . 2Pac, Elvis or something like that?”

DOES COLLEGE RADIO MATTER?

by Jessica Weber (Co-Sign)

Radioland

I don’t have to tell you all this, but since Pitchfork asked —
yes, College Radio matters.
I know,
CMJ didn’t publish a chart last week, the Music Marathon didn’t happen last year and CMJ’s direction has become a question mark . . . but, so what?
Let’s be real: CMJ’s charts provide a great snapshot of what’s happening week to week nationwide, but it’s been a minute since they’ve been THE voice of College Radio.
More importantly, the impact a station has on its community and fans doesn’t have a thing to do with whether or not a trade magazine exists.
Honestly, people have been asking whether or not radio still matters since the early 2000s when I started in the music business as a College Radio Promoter.
The answer has always been the same. Yes.
As music lovers, you already know radio isn’t the only way to hear new records anymore, and it never will be again. This is OK! These days, technology allows all media to be consumed in many different ways (thankfully!), and often with so little intention. So to all my independent radio stations out there in the world, I say this makes you stronger.
Regardless of format, listening to your local radio station is not a purely utilitarian exercise so much as a conscious choice. People are tuning in because listeners know
that
YOU fuel and enable music discovery.
This means you’re tied directly into an open, engaged, local and loyal audience of music consumers and fans, not to mention donors and volunteers. They are hungry to contribute and be a part of something meaningful, and support an outlet rooted in community. Work that!
That being said, and I say this with love, there’s always room to step up our game, College Radio. And to be totally clear, I’m not saying don’t report to CMJ. I’m saying do that,
and more.
Stations have to find new ways to trumpet the amazing things they're doing with bands and labels to the rest of the world, beyond charts. So, continue investing in your station’s community by building with your local record stores plus the venues and publications you love
to create a truly meaningful local network.
And most important — get to know your listeners. These are your people! Keep investing, grow awareness for your station in your market and become an essential mouthpiece for your market.
Don’t ever forget — you are a powerful amplifier. Your audience, your community and your format have a voice. And remember we need to continue working to find new and innovative ways to amplify our voices and provide more for our listeners, our community and the artists we believe in.

Stacks Image 503364


During my past 36 years in the biz, I've been interviewed many times over &
I never get tired of sharing my story!
Recently, I did one of the
BEST interviews ever in "The Biggest" podcast show,
hosted by
Miguel Rockwell & Joe Hawkins!
You'll hear how I learned to DJ, who taught me and how I became an on-air radio personality. How I met Mix-A-Lot, my first encounter with Mix at the Boys club with Ed Locke (we were the only 2 Asians in the bldg), who started NASTYMIX Records and where the name NASTYMIX came from.
How I still feel so bad (yes, to this day) about getting kicked out of Seattle Prep high school — I reveal what I did & why it was so wrong — and about losing my mom to cancer when I was 18.
How I got to be on Eazy-E's "Radio," my history with Jerry Heller & The World Class Wrekin Cru, my history at 1250 KFOX in 1980 and the FreshTracks show intro
from
The Emerald Street Boys to Sir Mix-A-Lot.
Why I got fired at KFOX, how KCMU Rap Attack started in 1988 on the condition that Shockmaster Glen Boyd would be my co-host and the birth of KUBE 93's HotMix on Sat night with NUMBER ONE ratings.
Plus you'll hear rare recordings of me on KFOX & KCMU and two original Quick mixes I did featuring Sir Mix-A-Lot, Eazy-E & NWA and yes, allllllllllllll pre-Serato!
A solid 90 minutes with Seattle's Original MasterMixer & Crazy Pinoy . . . And MORE!
Enjoy!





KCMU RAP ATTACK
#FBF 1988
(click for more, click to get back)

KCMU RAP ATTACK #FBF 1988: I found this on You Tube — a rare recording of two of my very first RAP ATTACK radio shows aired in 1988. The first link is about 37 min long & you can hear my MasterMix around 10min 30 sec into it. Both aired on 90.3FM KCMU, 28 years ago. I was fired from KFOX in April of 1988 as the station was sold & they made it clear to me that the new KFOX would NOT play RAP/Hip Hop anymore. KCMU, based on the UW campus, offered me a Sunday night slot around July of 1988 to keep KFOX FRESHTRACKS on the air. I accepted the offer, went from AM to FM in 3 months & renamed my show KCMU RAP ATTACK. I wanted this show to sound just as good as if you're listening to a Casey Kasem American Top 40 show or any professional sounding show you'd hear on commercial radio. I didn't want to just yell on a mic & say my name in a mix or during the show so I invested $$$ in getting Professional Custom Voice Over Drops. I also made my own Drops & the rest is Seattle Hip Hop HISTORY!
Here it is from 1988 (28 years ago) yours truly,
NASTY-NES on KCMU RAP ATTACK!
