If ever being about anything, Fresh Juice has always been about hearing over listening. The radio stations that play the same 5 songs and the award shows that applaud those songs such as the BET Awards never hear the music because hearing never makes anybody money. They listen while we hear. Portland group Neka and...Read more →

Oh my goodness. (It’s that goodness where you skip saying the “D” entirely to make sure everyone gets your point.)
This is it! This is the approach and step you should want to take with your hip-hop music.
The main man, Jay Electronica just dropped the documentary trailer for his upcoming project. Peep it out, let us know your thoughts.
Keep the movement going mi gente.
Since the late 90s, they’ve seemed to sort of fade away into oblivion. With a question, is their a place for a group like Boyz II Men in modern August Alsina & Drake ruled Male R&B? (Let’s not forget, Usher too.).
My simple answer, yes.
When I listen to this track, it’s straight Pop, but it is Boyz II Men. You listen to it, and don’t feel like you need a shower afterwards, or feel like calling your EX and leave 30 voicemails (aka The Drake Complex).
In the culture that is in the shape it is currently in, you need records like this that are simple, powerful, an uplifting take… and most importantly positive.
If it has hope. I am a fan.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
For this part of the, “I Do It In The Studio” series, I figured we should take a look at the “Producer” side of the hip-hop game.
Typically as a large percentage of modern artist, it’s about grabbing a beat and just writing (or going off the dome).
When an artist and producer understands each others end, and want to work for the best, I personally feel it helps the two hit another level in their individual craft.
Check it out, and let us know what you think.
