DJ 3
rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
January 13, 2020

Thanks for continuing to support indie rap music and the Rap Attack DJ’s.

What is good my Hip Hop friends!!?
Wow, it is really 2020! We made it, barely, but we are here.
New year, new decade and new music is available for all!!!!

I am so excited to get going in this new year. I hope you are too.
Let’s get started with a review of a brand-new joint from one of Hip Hop’s favorite sons.
For many months now,
Redman has been teasing us that he will be releasing a new album, Muddy Waters 2. However, the album has yet to surface. Instead, Red kicks off the new year with a 3-pack of new songs for us to salivate over. I will focus on one of those joints!
Released on
GILLA HOUSE/RIVETING MUSIC label, Redman gives us a cut titled “It’s a Banguh”. And yes, it’s a banger indeed! This dope cut samples the 1999 legendary Rockwilder-produced joint titled “Da Rockwilder”. It gives us that straight-up NYC-grime feeling that we all love. Red goes in on the track, doing what he does best, smashing on emcees. Throughout the cut, we hear snippets from M.O.P. (Mash Out Posse, for those who don’t know), that help make up the chorus. It rocks hard and you will really want to wild out on this one.
So, we are off and running into this new year. I hope the best of things for you and yours as we navigate the craziness of this world.

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!!
DJ 3rd Degree

#ARTIST TIP OF THE DAY
by DJ ADDITION



If you do not know what Sound Exchange is, please — do your homework. They are basically a master-side collection society
for all the internet radio stations.
What if you, as an artist, send a song to an online radio station without an
ISRC code? Then the routing of the money earned on those plays is very, very unlikely to ever get back to you. Factor in publishing plus lack of knowledge about publishing and there are probably close to 100’s of Millions of dollars NOT distributed correctly.

Truly sad and disheartening,
as this is mostly for independent artists and songwriters.

Do your Research. Do your Homework.
