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.
So far, 2020 has been a wild year. Kobe died, Covid hit, George Floyd and many others killed by police and of course, the crazy-ass election season. Well, at least for us here in Los Angeles, we won both the NBA and the MLB championships!!!
I think it’s time for some new music and I’ve got something really good for your ears. Straight off the presses and straight out of Australia, I bring you “Salty Waters 2” (
Stay Independent) by Australian artist Optimystic.
Optimystic enlisted the production skills of
Loftwah the Beatsmiff & Rob Shaker as well as a who’s-who of emcees for the album. Some of the well-known names include Method Man, Sticky Fingaz and Fredro from Onyx, Rockness Monsta, Artifacts, Frukwan (GraveDiggaz ), Doitall ( Lords of the Underground ), Krazy Drayz (Das Efx), Kali Ranks, Mic Handz, Sickflo and many, many more. The songs on this album go hard, as do the emcees on the tracks. Some of my favorite tracks are “Wisdom of Da Funk” featuring Redman, “Hip Hop Iz All I Do” and “Smaash” ft. Method Man. This is a quality album with 15-tracks ready for your ears! Go get it!
As I always do, dropping you with the knowledge on that fresh Hip-Hop.
Shout out to the Rap Attack DJs for sharing the love!
Let us know what you need! We got ya!
Til next time . . . Peace!!
Tim Jaffe aka DJ 3rd Degree

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.

I hope it touches you like it did me.
