RAP ATTACK RADIO is COMING!

"THE PAPER TIGERS"
Having been a student of martial arts for nearly fifty years and a principal actor in a martial arts motion picture, rest assured I’m familiar with and have seen many martial arts movies. It's been a long time since a good martial arts film has been released but now we have "The Paper Tigers!”
Casting gets an A+. Together, the three leading actors work near perfect in their roles.
The comedy and one liners get an A+. When you least expect it, you find yourself laughing!
The martial arts scenes get an A+. Well past their prime, the two aging students still show their skills — rusty, yet commendable.
I did get emotional during some scenes of their deceased Sifu as it reminded me of my own Sifu Taky Kimura who recently passed away.
Some highlights: watching a movie that was filmed in my hometown, Seattle, seeing my favorite restaurant Tai Tung and hearing my former NASTYMIX RECORDS' label mate Kid Sensation’s "Back2Boom" — first track you hear in the movie!
Big Plus: felt nice being back in a movie theater, watching a big screen again.
I loved it and I know you will too!

DJ 3rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
May 10, 2021

What is good my Hip Hop friends?!
We are back to bring you more hot music for your ears. I always love digging for new music and finding gems! Today I think I have a really nice record for you.

Stacks Image 516975

The last time I wrote to you we were mourning the loss of DMX.
Since then, we have lost
Black Rob and Shock G/Humpty Hump. April was a tough month for the Hip Hop culture. Everyone at rapattacklives.com sends condolences and prayers to the families and friends of those we lost.

As we move forward, I want to bring us back to the music we all love. This week’s fire pick comes from a duo many of you may know. Just released on
Ill Adrenaline Records is a fantastic 16-song album from rapper Beneficence and producer Confidence called “Stellar Mind”.
This album has the sound we boom-bap aficionados are always looking for. All produced by Confidence, Beneficence is joined on several tracks by some dope rhyme spitters such as
El Da Sensei from The Artifacts, Masta Ace, Phantasm from The Cella Dwellas, Craig G, Lord Tariq, Rass Kass, Keith Murray, AG of D.I.T.C. and Chubb Rock along with several others. With this line-up you know the album has great content to go with dope production.
And it does deliver.

My favorite cut on the album features
Def Squad alum Keith Murray on “Illest Mic Pros”. The song has a pure 90s vibe and Ben and Keith put it down on the track.
Quality music up and down.
I highly recommend you go peep it out! You won’t be disappointed.

Keep it real out there my people! One love til next time!!
DJ 3rd Degree




Congrats!
Jay Luck!

AN IMPORTANT WORD of ADVICE from DJ Brenboy (KBOO-Portland)

Stacks Image 516640

As the Urban Music Director at 90.7FM KBOO in Portland, OR, I can tell you first hand that people do still send in physical copies with a one sheet. However, I have never once popped in a CD submission to decide whether or not to play their song. I usually just look at their one sheet and then look up their IG.
I feel like IG is the new "Press Kit". All of us radio DJ's and music directors have an IG account, so it's an easy way for us to size up an artist before deciding what we do — or don't do — with them.

TWITCH?



Twitch is the world's leading live streaming platform for gamers, deejays, talk show hosts and a wide array of the things we love. Watch, listen, chat and interact with other fans from around the world.
Twitch streams can be viewed on the official Twitch website and also via one of the many official Twitch apps which are available for

Watching broadcasts and videos on Twitch is completely free. You don't need a Twitch account to watch & listen, but if you wanna be in the Chat Room and interact with others, be sure to sign up, it's quick, easy and again, free.

What are Bits and Subscriptions? Twitch Bits are effectively a form of donations from viewers during a stream. This is one of the ways to show support or contribute to the streamer. Bits can be purchased by using either Amazon Payments or PayPal. Twitch pays their Affiliates and Partners one cent for every Bit fans use on their channels. A viewer can Cheer with their Bits during a stream at anytime. 100 bits equals $1 donated to the streamer.
Subscribers or “Subs” are a repeat payment subscription to a specific channel. A Subscription allows a viewer to pay a minimum of $4.99 per month to support a channel, either on a recurring or one-time basis. Most streamers on Twitch receive half of the Subscription money from Twitch, so the DJ will see half of that $4.99.

West Coast Hip Hop pioneer Tairrie B dropped her new remix
for #NastyWoman produced by
Grandmixer GMS!

FREE DOWNLOAD: 
https://bit.ly/3rXS83C

This track is from her new album #Feminenergy released in 2020. GMS's turntable skills can also be heard on "Truth Bomb" & "Caution" (tracks 8 & 10).
Tairrie was kind enough to say these words about GMS:
“DJing is an art and Grandmixe GMS is a true artist. It's been my pleasure to feature his skills behind the turntables (second to none!) on my new album “Feminenergy.” Am also happy to share his talents as a producer on this re-imagined version of "Nasty Woman" which has a cool, old school flavor w/a modern twist. Love! this new remix and have huge respect for the man who made it.”
Please follow GMS on instagram:

and add his new remix to your TB related digital/vinyl Hip Hop collection.
Enjoy!

THE ‘RAP ATTACK DJ CONF CALL’ TURNS 23 YEARS OLD!
By GrandMixer GMS


Stacks Image 516114


Legendary producers Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis joined Nasty Nes and all the Rap Attack DJ's on Thursday’s Rap Attack conference call.
Jam & Lewis have earned more than 100 gold, platinum, multi-platinum and diamond albums for their work with celebrated artists. The list includes
Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, Boyz II Men, Usher, Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey, Luther Vandross, Yolanda Adams, Herb Alpert, New Edition, Human League, George Michael, Earth, Wind and Fire, TLC, Robert Palmer, Gwen Stefani and Kanye West!

They were two of the nicest, most humble, well-spoken and down to earth people I’ve ever met. They shared so many nuggets of priceless information as well as personal stories. Truly an honor to have been a part of this call.

Surprisingly, Jimmy Jam used to be a DJ. They both expressed true appreciation for DJ's because DJ's are instrumental (no pun intended) in introducing and playing their music to the world:
"If we make these songs and no one is there to deliver them to the people, then it's like we didn't make the song. So you guys are the most important people in our lives after we make the song. You guys are the ones who raise and nurture it — we've already done all the work, we've conceived it, but you're the ones who've raised it, put it in front of people [] you're the ones that are presenting it to them so you become the delivery service and to me, that is the most important thing." Jimmy Jam

Thanks to both Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis for spending time with us Rap Attack DJ’s. Thanks to Nasty-Nes for all the hard work in putting together these conference calls. And heartfelt thanks for letting me be a part of this awesome team of DJ's throughout the Nation!
