Fire Pick of the Week
October 19, 2020

Thanks for continuing to support indie rap music and the Rap Attack DJ’s.
What is good my Hip Hop friends!!? I am excited to bring you this week’s offering of dope music.

As our nation deals with myriad issues that don’t seem to go away, we all need a little reprieve from the drama. I’m happy to help get us positively distracted from all that by presenting some new music for your ears and soul!

I am a big fan of good rap music that incorporates elements like soul, jazz and funk. I have a brand-new record for you that fits that to a T!!! Hailing from Canada, Vancouver B.C. to be exact, comes a fresh joint from the production duo who call themselves
Potatohead People.

Coming off their brand-new LP titled “Mellow Fantasy” (
Bastard Jazz Recordings), this duo has brought in one of our favorite legendary groups on their new single “Baby Got Work”. This new jam features the one and only De La Soul, who fit perfectly on this track. Starting off with a simple kick and clap drum loop, then highlighted by a sweet bass line with incorporated keys, this song is smooth and jazzy giving you a fun, chill vibe. The verses are funky with De La doing their thing and the singing hook is lovely.

This duo has been in the game for many years and has a long catalog so go peep out the new record via these links:
Buy/Stream here + pre-order “Mellow Fantasy” LP on exclusive gold vinyl:

EXTRA EXTRA! PROLIFIC
by Pete Spray of Ninety Now
New video from Extra Prolific: DJs & MCs

Following his video ”Bang The Drums” released earlier this year, Extra Prolific took a somewhat nostalgic turn this time. ”DJs & MCs” is a song dedicated to the influences that made him become an MC. It is a warm, nostalgic throwback to old school Hip Hop, a presentation of his own musical path and reflection on the music industry. On the track Extra Prolific delivers passionate flow on top of jazzy beats by O-Love and skillful cuts by DJ Trust Won.

Peep the video:

The single is available on all digital platforms.
The album ”Like It’s Supposed To Be” can also be purchased on limited edition CD, cassette and vinyl here:

UPDATE ON THE MINNEAPOLIS HIP HOP SCENE & BEYOND
by Jessica Weber of Co-Sign


A few months ago we reached out to all of you to address allegations that surfaced around artists affiliated with the Rhymesayers and Doomtree record labels as well as the Minneapolis music community.
We promised to connect with our clients and ask for answers and accountability, so while those conversations are 100% still ongoing, we wanted to update everyone on progress being made.
The
Doomtree crew has been doing a lot of work internally to grow and build. P.O.S./Stef is stepping away from music for a while to focus on getting help and to make himself available to those he's hurt.
Rhymesayers has been going through a holistic label assessment with staff and partners to create new brand standards and community engagement initiatives. They've also been meeting with restorative justice experts to assess their internal culture, redefine their values and become more intentional.

We acknowledge that any type of activism needs to give people room to change. We are encouraged by this movement and acknowledge that it is a start to helping the industry move forward equitably. So we promise to continue this conversation and do everything we can to make sure all our partners are committed to doing this work.

As an aside — every week we help moderate a community call where stations, DJs and music industry affiliates within our independent music community can connect on ways to fight for equality on the airwaves and beyond as a unit.
Thanks for reading. I'm here to answer questions and offer clarification wherever I can.
Jessica Weber

This is the new music industry for those who have a fantasy about being signed to a major label. Basically, it isn't worth it unless you are simply using them to build your brand and your name globally. As far as making money, you would be better off as an independent artist "IF" you have the money to promote yourself independently!
THIS IS THE NEW CURRENT RECORDING INDUSTRY PARADIGM & THE BIG MONEY WILL BE MADE IN PUBLISHING, MERCHANDISE & LIVE SHOWS
(whenever this pandemic will allow for those concert events once more)!

During this unprecedented time of the COVID-19 pandemic, DJs have turned to social media to stay connected with friends, family and their communities. We are connecting to not only discover what’s going on in the world but to bring joy and comfort through music. Unfortunately, social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram do not permit copyrighted music to be played on their platform. There have been many attempts for DJs to bring the power of music to ‘quarantine life’ but live feeds are still consistently cut off.

We are asking for change. Change that would permit music to be played without interruption and provide the appropriate compensation for the artist. There are many ideas on how this can be done and the technology already exists. We would like social media music outlets to reach a mutual agreement with music publishers, record companies and DJs so we can continue to unite worldwide when we are all so far apart.

We are asking everyone to join us to bring this matter to the attention of the powers that be in regards to how this problem is affecting our worldwide arts community with the hopes that in turn, we can stay connected with the people through music.

Sincerely - The Dj Community.
Thank you.

J.P. Maxfield: The Man All DJ’s Should Thank

Why should all DJ’s thank J.P. Maxfield? Because in 1927, J.P. Maxfield determined that records should be “12 inches” in diameter and played at the speed of “33 1/3 rpm’s” (revolutions per minute). How and/or why you may ask? It began with the film industry: movies were (and are still) divided into reels.

"The Heart of The Dragon" is an incredible short film/documentary about my Sifu Taky Kimura,
The relationship between Sifu Taky and Bruce Lee reminds me of the relationship between Sifu Taky and me, going back to when I was just 11 years old. In the doc, Sifu Taky says, "Why me? Why did Bruce pick me?" I could almost say the same.
My mom always shopped at Taky’s grocery store and developed a trust with him. A single mom, she would ask Taky for advice on raising me and he’d look out for both of us. Even though I was too young at 13, he invited me to be a member of his
Jun Fan Gung-Fu Institute.
Growing up, I was bullied and picked on, the butt of all fat jokes and had low self esteem. That all changed because of Sifu Taky’s guidance. It wasn't all about martial arts. What Bruce shared with him, Sifu Taky shared with me.
I am forever thankful.
Please watch and enjoy this documentary.
