DJ 3rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
June 14, 2021

What is good my Hip Hop friends!!?
Happy that summer is upon us and hopefully,
we can go have some fun, post-Covid 19!!!
To get you ready for the summer fun, I
have a new release that I think you will dig.

Stacks Image 517409

In this writer’s opinion, Termanology is one of NYC’s dopest rhyme assassins. He has been putting out fire tracks for years now and the pandemic did not stop him. He’s teamed up with producer Shortfyuz to release “Goya 3” (Brick Records) which is chock full of hot rap music for your ears!!

Shortfyuz produced this entire project — it is straight up fire! If you know Term, he has that gritty, NYC-flavored style and he wrecks just about every beat he jumps on. The album has features from artists like Lil Fame, Planet Asia, Wais P., Tek from Smif n Wessun and many more. One of my favorite joints off this release is “Salsa Moves”. The flavor of that track gets me all hyped up! Many more flavorful joints are on there — you should go peep it out! You won’t be disappointed.

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

Thanks to everyone who tuned in to Saturday’s Book-O-Rama, ‘History and Future of Hip Hop in Seattle.’
Huge thanks to Seattle's
Wing Luke Museum, Vivian Chan and Dr.Daudi Abe for the panel discussion that I moderated on Dr. Abe's book, "Emerald Street: A History of Hip Hop in Seattle.
I dedicate this Book-O-Rama to
AAPI Heritage Month and to my Sifu Taky Kimura (R.I.P.)



Stacks Image 517207

In honor of AAPI Heritage month I'd like to spotlight the following:
Shout out to futurepop teen group @wearefuturepop (IG) and MACEO @maceomatrix (IG) on their video release cover of Olivia Rodrigo, "Driver's License."
These two, Maceo and Olivia, are future icons in the Filipino (Pacific Islander/Asian) community. I want to personally honor them in May 2021 as we celebrate
Asian American Heritage Month

"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!

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.

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.

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!
