Heavy Rotation with Jeff Weiss

Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

unnamed-2

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

There are a handful of writers in the rap journalism world that I do a weekly timeline check-in on to make sure I don’t miss anything they have published, and Jeff Weiss is one of the elite within that category (that’s him in the pic above holding a slice of pizza with a blunt in his mouth). Not only is his site Passion of the Weiss a top location on the web for heads who prefer their bloggers to scribe with substance, but he’s consistently cranking out insightful articles as an LA Weekly columnist, and he co-hosts arguably the tightest hip-hop podcast coming out of Cali right now, Shots Fired (past guests include everyone from Ratking to Roc Marciano). In addition, you can catch him penning righteous reviews and features on Pitchfork, and he just so happens to be the author of this month’s exclusive XXL cover story on Lil Wayne. Oh, and did I mention dude released a book last year, too? It’s called 2Pac vs. Biggie: An Illustrated History of Rap’s Greatest Battles, and it’s available on Amazon now. Cop that if you don’t already got that.

Because we all hold Jeff’s work in such high regard here and appreciate both his taste in tracks and his colorful commentary, we asked him to share some thoughts on five songs he’s been listening to recently for our latest Heavy Rotation. I know I can speak confidently for eskay and the rest of the team when I say that it’s an honor to have Jeff’s words grace the pages of NahRight. Enjoy the breakdown of his selections below.

Heavy Rotation with Joell Ortiz

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

Joell Ortiz is a total package MC. He’s got bars, of course, but it’s much more than that. He’s got flow, punchlines, wit, charisma, authenticity, he picks good beats, he holds his own alongside other great rappers, he can write concept songs and diss records, and he knows how to rep for his hometown but still be accessible for fans outside of New York City. Between his solo efforts and Slaughterhouse contributions, his catalog is stacked with crack tracks, including his hot new single/video “House Slippers,” which is available on iTunes now.

We caught up with Joell Ortiz yesterday for our latest Heavy Rotation to see what he’s been bumping lately. As Joell told us, he listens to most of his music in the whip, saying, “That’s where I soak it up the most. Sometimes I just get in the car and go, and zone out.” Peep his selections below, which range from bangers by 50 Cent and Drake to Adele ballads to battle rapper mixtapes (he’s highly involved in Total Slaughter), and stay tuned for the new Joell Ortiz House Slippers LP dropping this fall. Yaowa!

Heavy Rotation with The Black Sheep Dres

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

Last week, we premiered a new song by The Black Sheep Dres (formerly known as just Dres of legendary Native Tongues duo Black Sheep), and also published our first ever Pick 6 with him, where he told us the stories behind six of his classic Black Sheep joints and solo collaborations. In addition, we spoke to Dres about the songs that have inspired his music over the years for our Heavy Rotation series. As you will see, he has a deep love for soul music, and also cuts that feature his favorite instrument, the piano. Check out Dres’ selections below, and stay tuned for his upcoming project, which is being produced by DJ Premier (who he recently recorded a Bars in the Booth episode with) and Showbiz.

Heavy Rotation with Alex Wiley

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

New Chicago hip-hop artists continue to make an impact on the culture in 2014, and one dude who is generating buzz outside the Windy City right now is Alex Wiley. Repping the Closed Sessions camp with credits that include collabos with Chance the Rapper and Action Bronson, Wiley is set to drop his new project Village Party in May (we posted his catchy new joint “Vibration” on the site recently). For those still unfamiliar with Wiley’s style, well, he describes the music he makes as a literal “breath of fresh air.” And we agree. Dude’s got bars, but also an unorthodox approach to songwriting that gives his joints a flavor that strays from the norm, in a good way. So we asked Alex to break down five songs he’s been pumping regularly for our latest Heavy Rotation, to give us a closer look at what types of tracks are influencing this freshness. This may be the most off-beat edition of our series yet. Peep below.

Heavy Rotation with Smoke DZA (Kush Edition)

Friday, April 4th, 2014

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

There’s a reason why his name is Smoke DZA. Dude loves to smoke trees. The Uptown spitter, who has a preference for Dutch Masters filled with sour diesel or kush, is one of the dopest rappers bubbling out of the five boroughs. And in 2014, his stock is rising higher, thanks to his high-grade album release Dream.ZONE.Achieve which dropped earlier this week, and his highly anticipated collaborative project with fellow Harlemite Cam’ron (who makes a guest appearance on “Ghost of Dipset”), which is due out sometime this year, hopefully sooner than later.

To appropriately promote his latest project, we got on the horn with DZA yesterday to discuss his five favorite songs to smoke to for a special Kush Edition of Heavy Rotation. And along the way, we found about his tour bus life with Pro.Era, effective methods for hitting your G Pen on a plane, and what his favorite Jay Z song of all-time is. Roll up.

Heavy Rotation with Chase N. Cashe

Thursday, December 12th, 2013

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

“If you look at the time span of rap, you can find my name in a lot of people’s discography,” producer/rapper Chase N. Cashe told us on the heels of the release of his new, sample-free, Scion AV-sponsored EP Cashe Rules, which features appearances by Casey Veggies and Smoke DZA. “When you hear me, you’re going to get quality music, quality product, and quality rollout. I’m not gonna force feed it to you. I’m gonna give you an opportunity to fuck with it.” Well, your opportunity is RIGHT HERE, and it’s our pleasure to present it to you on his behalf.

To find out more about what Chase N. Cashe is listening to when he’s not producing bangers like Lil Wayne and Eminem’s Rebirth collabo “Drop the World” and Drake’s Take Care gem “Look What You’ve Done,” or joints for himself to rap over, we caught up with him during his recent trip to Miami for Art Basel to discuss what songs he currently has in Heavy Rotation. And he divulged that he’s been listening to the new Troy Ave album heavy (he produced a track on there, too), and he always keeps a couple classic songs from his hometown of New Orleans close, especially when he’s traveling. Find out about those selections and more in our latest edition of Heavy Rotation with Chase N. Cashe.

Heavy Rotation with Eddie Huang

Friday, November 1st, 2013

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

If you’re a true foodie living in NYC, then you’ve probably already tried a pork-belly bun from Eddie Huang’s East Village restaurant BaoHaus. And if you haven’t, well, get on that. But Eddie’s expertise is not limited to Taiwanese cuisine. He’s a “food personality” in the truest sense of the term. Not only is he a restaurant owner/chef, but he’s the author of Fresh Off the Boat, a highly-entertaining memoir that details his Asian-American upbringing, which was recently turned into a pilot sitcom for ABC. And he also hosts a web series of the same name on Vice, the most recent episode which chronicled his trip to one of Detroit’s local burger joints with Danny Brown. Check for a new episode dropping every Monday.

Being that Eddie is a known hip-hop head and music lover in general, we caught up with him in the BaoHaus kitchen earlier this week to chop it up about the five songs he’s been listening to the most recently for our latest edition of Heavy Rotation. There aren’t any songs by his favorite rapper Cam’ron on the list, but he did tell us he’s always listening to his tracks, and reinforced that Crime Pays is his favorite Killa album. So to keep it honest, these are the five non-Cam’ron songs Eddie Huang has been banging on the reg this week.

Heavy Rotation with Doley Bernays

Saturday, October 26th, 2013

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

The next generation of Bronx MCs is slowly but surely penetrating the blogosphere, and one that we urge you to take note of is Doley Bernays. With his new Just In Case EP out now, Doley is establishing himself as one to watch in the years to come, with his modernized take on rap music derived from the streets of hip-hop’s birthplace. His style is both insightful and gutter, and on songs from his new project like the slapper “Till We Fall” and also “Drown,” which was produced by the same duo behind Drake and Jay Z’s “Pound Cake,” his knack for next-level songwriting and ear for dope tracks is clearly evident.

To get to know Doley a bit more, and learn about the music that inspires his fiery bars, we asked him to break down five songs he keeps in Heavy Rotation. Read below to find out what two songs he finds to be particularly impressive off Jay Z’s The Blueprint 2, how his appreciation for Nas’ Illmatic grew as he got older, and why he relates to the lyrics on a certain “Intro” by The Clipse and “Outro” by Nipsey Hussle.

Heavy Rotation with Black Dave

Friday, October 11th, 2013

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

The new New York has a wide variety of talented artists making their way into the spotlight in 2013, and one that we’ve been especially checking for lately is Bronx-born, Harlem-based rapper/skateboarder Black Dave. He first caught our attention last year with his video for ‘On Da Map,’ an ode to the five boroughs of New York City (the video also showcased his pro skating abilities). He has since put out a handful of dope visuals, most notably his newest one ‘Take it Back,’ a nod to the ‘90s Golden Era of hip-hop he was born into (check the Kids theme too), and some solid collabos as well, like this one with Meech of Flatbush Zombies that appeared on his Stay Black mixtape, and a more recent remix with Stalley.

For this edition of Heavy Rotation, we caught up with Black Dave fresh off the release of his impressive new project Black Bart, which features appearances by Bodega Bamz, Smoke DZA, Boldy James, and RiFF RaFF, to break down the five songs he’s currently bumping the most. And with this list, you can tell that skating aside, he’s hip-hop to the core. Check out his selection of ‘90s and early 2000s classics, and stay tuned for his new video “Million Man March,” dropping at the end of the month.
