Video: Mr. Green ft. A$AP Ferg & Nigel Sylvester – Chinatwon (Live From The Streets)

Friday, October 24th, 2014

For the latest installment of Mr. Green’s “Live From The Streets” series, in which he samples sounds from the environment and uses them to create a completely unique instrumental, he hooks up with Trap God A$AP Ferg. After grabbing some snips from a street performer in Chinatown playing an erhu, plus some bike sounds from BMX star Nigel Sylvester, Green makes an honest to goodness trap banger for Ferg to spit over. The result is one of the illest tracks I’ve ever heard produced on “Live From The Streets”.

Video: A Look Inside Nas: Time Is Illmatic

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

Filmmakers Erik Parker and One-9, the creative forces behind the Time Is Illmatic documentary, talk about the 10 years of their lives that they put into the film. They originally started working on it prior to the 10th anniversary of Illmatic and then watched it balloon into something beyond what they had originally envisioned when Nas got involved and gave his co-sign.

If you still haven’t seen the film, which is amazing, it is currently playing in select theaters across the country and is available to view On-Demand.
