It's very rare these days for record labels to lace us with Gold & Platinum plaques, t-shirts, all-expenses paid airfare & hotel to conferences and so forth. So I have to give props to Mazzi Behi from Def Jam for the DJ hat I received over the holidays. This is much appreciated & shows that we (college radio) are still getting love.
I will soon be getting
The High Children gear &
we will not forget our dj's who showed
THC love.

DJ 3rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
Week of January 15, 2018

Welcome to 2018 everyone!

Got a brand new track for ya this week that is for sure going to blaze up your eardrums!

Thanks for continuing to support indie rap music and the Rap Attack DJ’s. We are returning for another year of music reviews, bringing you new artists who we think are dope and we want you to Check. Them. Out!
Our first pick of the New Year comes from rapper Supreme Cerebral of Tustin, California. Produced by D Mar, the single is called “Change” (Gold Chain Music) and is off of their release titled “Soul Trained”.
By now, you all know I love soulful samples that flow within the boom bap beats of Hip-Hop. D Mar uses
Otis Redding’s “Change Gonna Come” and brilliantly samples it throughout the track. Supreme goes in on it, talking about his life and its challenges. A really soulful track flowing in at 83 beats per minute, this one should be added to your playlist.

You have to go get this record.
Let us know if you need it, cause we are rocking it!!

Til next week . . . Peace!!
DJ 3rd Degree
