Paypa on Gowhere Radio [Recap]

paypa1-1200web.jpg
 
 
On last week's edition of Gowhere Radio, we devoted a majority of the show to an in-depth conversation with a Chicago artist on the rise: Paypa! Now, in case you missed the show, you can listen to it all by simply pressing play above. We talked about his recent wave of new music (and played some of it, of course), most notably the sizzling "Black & Red". But we also got his comments on some deep issues behind the scenes, including the controversy of his affiliated Behind Da Scenes Entertainment group recently getting indicted. And furthermore, we got his upcoming artist perspective on how vital blogs are to the artist, in the wake of the Homeland Security seizing. Read his comments below and hear for yourself above!
 
On the Behind Da Scenes Entertainment Controversy:
"I don't really know nothing about that. What I do know is that's fam. These wasn't just colleagues or business acquaintances, when you're working with people and around people, it becomes more like a family. It's unfortunate, these are not people you would consider crooks; these are generally good people... [On how it affects him] It's absolute and completely total motivation, man... I'm not going nowhere and it made me a million times stronger. Now of course, you got to deal with the emotional and mental anguish of it. Losing good people, good friends, that's never good. We've seen this story before though, we all deal with losses."
 
On the importance of blogs for artists:
"The relationship between artists and blogs is everything. It's like a relationship between a best friend; you guys are our biggest asset. The artists are nothing without blogs. We're talking about getting started... you guys open up that venue so for that to be shut down, anybody comin' after, from now on, it's gonna be hard to position yourself."
 
To close out, we have a couple of radio news and notes. We will be on the airwaves on our usual date and time (Thursday night, 8PM on Vocalo.org 89.5 FM), and we will be putting the spotlight on some of our recent interviews and some dope Chicago music of the past week, in addition to more Wu-Tang ticket giveaways. Expect the usual preview/weekly recap sometime tomorrow. And lastly, one week from today, we will be joining Vocalo Music Vox host Jesse Menendez, as he will be interviewing us to discuss in detail some of the stuff we touched on above: the blogs being seized by Homeland Security. It will be a must-listen so stay tuned next Wednesday night as well!

Back on our normal night! Gowhere Radio takes the airwaves and tonight's show will feature special guest, Paypa! You probably recall seeing Paypa amidst some classic Michael Jordan highlights in the new "Black & Red" video from a few weeks ago (this is the best remix of Wiz Khalifa's "Black & Yellow" we have heard yet). You may also remember him from his appearance on The Gowhere Tape Vol. 1 and a dope feature we had on him from the beginning of the year. Now, we have the chance to talk about how life has changed since his signing to the SRC/Universal! Also be prepared for some chatter on what to expect on his upcoming mixtape, Tunnel Vision II: Ramadan Season, as well as an in-depth discussion on the music business. We'll also ask him about the recent controversy surrounding Behind Da Scenes Entertainment (of which Paypa is their main client), but also we'll get his 'artist' perspective on the recent homeland security seizing of a trio of prominent hip hop blog sites. Expect comments on that ourselves from a 'blogger' perspective, in addition to more goods on tonight's show. 

One more that definitely needs to be mentioned? We'll be giving away TWO pairs of tickets to the upcoming Wu Tang show we are sponsoring in Chicago on January 8th. The only way to win is to tune in!

Follow along with tonight's show via the must-have downloads of the week, including the songs we will be playing from Paypa (you can find more at paypatime.com). And in case you missed last week's episode of Gowhere Radio with Dwele, well, simply click there and check it out!

Dwele on GWHH Radio [Recap]

dwele-whatsnottolove-e1.jpeg
 
 
Last week on GWHH Radio, we were joined by none other than Dwele! You can listen to the full show above, where we also predict Kanye West & Nicki Minaj's first week sales and play music from the week that was. Below is only a sample of the good quotables you'll hear in the show, which also features how collabs with Common and Nikki Lynette came about, so check 'em out below and press play above!
 
On working with Kanye West on "POWER":
"I was in Detroit. I was working on my album. I got a call from my manager who says, 'Yeah, Kanye is going to fly you out to Hawaii to work on the album" ... The first day out there, we didn't even really work. We went to the YMCA, you know, shot some hoops. He whooped me up in basketball real quick. Then we went to the studio and listened to a few joints. He played the album for me and told me what he really was going for with it. And the next day we got to work on it. I tried a few things, I didn't know what was going to stick as far as my vocals, but I kind of knew the "POWER" joint - he was going to use because in the process of re-listening to it over and over again, he had his engineers mixing in the vocals, so I kind of felt that that was going to be the one."
 
On the origins of the W.ants W.orld W.omen concept: 
"I was actually working with Nottz and he put a song on and the first words that came to me were, 'I wish I had a dollar, for every dollar you think I had, I wish I had some Gucci shoes inside that Gucci bag'. And I thought that that's a part of me that I don't get to talk about too much ... And then I thought about all the songs I had that were more political based that I never really had a chance to put into an album because it's kind of hard to put a political song in between baby making music. So that's how I came up with the three different sections."
 
Stay tuned for the next episode of GWHH Radio this Thursday at 8PM CT on Vocalo.org 89.5 FM as we will be joined this week by Paypa! In addition, keep it locked as we will have another Camovement on the way from Dwele's show at The Shrine this past weekend.

BUT, the highlight of tonight's GWHH Radio will undoubtedly be the in-depth conversation Tibs and I have with Dwele!

Tonight, Dwele dwells with GWHH Radio and we'll definitely be hearing straight from him about the concepts and creative process behind the new album, W.ants, W.orld, W.omen, as well as how he started working with Kanye West and Common - two of Chi-Town's living legends.

He also has an upcoming collab with rising Chicago artist Nikki Lynette and we'll most definitely be finding out about that.

The World Famous Tony Williams 'Everything About You' video + GWHH Radio [Recap]

 
BUY: The World Famous Tony Williams "Everything About You"
FULL, CDQ, Track off upcoming album, King Or The Fool *Tibs Fav.™
 
The World Famous Tony Williams drops one of the most complete music videos this year. The new single "Everything About You" becomes even that much more powerful the way they took the song's concept and presented a multi-layered story in the video. It starts out with a scene showcasing a couple on the rocks and immediately giving the viewer a rooting interest for the female lead to deserve better than the crazy boyfriend. She leaves their argument to go to a play rehearsal where Tony and her have clearly been developing sparks with the song now playing to help convey the thoughts of Tony's character. Midway through the song, Tony's talking breakdown was so well-crafted to match the song and the video and everything after that in the video was pure art. The crazed boyfriend makes his return at the end and *spoiler alert* barges in, baseball bat in hand, on Tony and his now ex-girlfriend hanging out. What happens next is left for us to decide, which is a dope cliffhanger. The video, directed by Juan Salas, is masterful for stirring up emotions in the viewer and for the way it adds a whole new perspective on the audio. Job well done. You would be remiss not to watch it after the description above. "Everything About You" is the current single off the upcoming album, King Or The Fool, due out by the holidays.
 
In some bonus Tony Williams coverage, you may recall we had him on GWHH Radio just last week. Well, for those who missed it, you can now listen to the full show below! Tony spills exclusive details about the upcoming album King Or The Fool and gets into the creative process behind not only the album and the single above, but also this year's Finding Dakota Grey mixtape, and his work on Kanye West's upcoming album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. In fact, you will find out about New Year's Day recording with Kanye, stories about his feature on "All Of The Lights", and even how it all started with "Spaceship". (Fun fact: Tony is Kanye's cousin and has been working with him since the beginning of both of their musical careers). Also during the show, we touched on last week's big-name releases: the new songs featuring Chicago superstars Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, and Common and some follow up thoughts on the "Runaway" film.

UPDATEGWHH Radio just ended! We would like to thank those of you out there that tuned in. As a special treat, you can peep this week's episode in its entirety in case you missed it by simply pressing play above! On tonight's episode, Tibs and I talked with special guests 2pak! It was perfect timing since we premiered the duo's debut mixtape, Mixtape For A Mixtape, just a couple of days ago. We talked with j.pak and pak.one about the creative process behind the mixtape, some of the songs we played on-air (download 'em below), and the reaction they get to their bold name. We dived even deeper to discuss selling out vs. staying true to your art (as heard on "Sold") and the similarities between art and music with j.pak (a soon to be graduate of the School at the Art Institute of Chicago), who drew the promo photo above, by the way. Oh, and I almost forgot: 2pak gave us the lowdown on the deeper concepts coming up on the next mixtape, Fountain Of Youth!

Listen and hear 'em for yourself, download their music, and catch up on what you may have missed this past week. We run down some of the pressing topics and downloads during the show so listen above and follow along below! Remember: tune in to listen to GWHH Radio LIVE every Thursday at 8PM CT on Vocalo.org 89.5 FM!

Mickey Factz GWHH Radio Freestyle + Interview

Mickey Factz "GWHH Radio: Art Freestyle"
2:30+ A Capella (BACKUP LINK*TIBS FAV.™ *GWHH PREMIERE*
 
Mickey Factz "GWHH Radio: Extended Interview"
Listen to the uncut interview above!
 
Just a couple weeks back, we were able to chop it up with Mickey Factz in the studio on our GWHH Radio program. For those who missed one of our most entertaining segments yet, we have not only the full (and extended) interview above, but also Mickey's ridiculous a capella freestyle, inspired by our discussion of art! The freestyle is filled with witty lines and historical references to some of art's greats (like Picasso and Leonardo), which come natural to Factz - a lover of contemporary and street art. In fact (no pun intended), here is a small sampling of the dope lines that Mickey spits above:

"Imagery. Museum in Sicily, lookin' for Mona Lisa in Italy,
No more writing my rhymes down, this is calligraphy,
When I'm done, ya'll will cheer, who you know with this ability?"

"Life's like art without an eraser, you better watch how you draw with it,
I do this per diem, cuz I been realer feelin' like Ben Stiller spending nights in the museum."
 
You will have to listen to the full a capella to also catch how he twists art references into movie references. Factz named all of his favorite artists in the discussion prior to the freestyle, in addition to two more interesting things you may not know about his personality. The interview was also primarily an extensive and informative talk about the music as Mickey talked about the creative process on the I'm Better Than You mixtape, the reason for its delay, and what upcoming videos to expect from the project. Other topics include how he landed the Honda partnership, some initial details about the upcoming album, The Achievement, and the aforementioned conversation about art that you can now hear for the first time in the extended interview! So without further adieu, enjoy some quotables from the interview below and download that I'm Better Than You mixtape if you're still sleepin' on it as well. Enjoy!

On the delay of I'm Better Than You:

"It was supposed to drop August 24th and my laptop got stolen August 17th. And all my raps and all my final drafts of the songs and some of the beats were on there. If I didn't get that laptop stolen, I wouldn't have done "Diamond Dust", I wouldn't have done "Melodic Nightmares", I wouldn't have done "Inner Love". I did have somethin' on there that didn't make it, which will probably come out on another mixtape before the album drops, which nobody knows about 'til now."

On The Achievement:

"I want it to be somethin' that will resonate with people not just me being successful, but people just enjoying the successes and aspirations of life... It's not really gonna be my full on story, it's gonna be the conclusion to The Leak series."

I am ridin' solo on GWHH Radio tonight, but that doesn't mean we don't have a special episode lined up for ya. Tonight, I will be joined in the studio by 0.5 of the Kidz In The Hall, none other than Naledge! We were happy to have him in on the heels of his new mixtape, TwentySomething, so naturally Naledge and I will talk in-depth about how ideas stemming from conversations formed songs on the mixtape, his many collaborations with fellow Chicago talent, and more general topics like the Brainiac Society and his fascination with sports and how it seeps into his music. Naledge will definitely have a lot to say so this is a must-hear interview.

We will not only be talking with Naledge, but I will also be running down another busy week that was in Gowhere Hip Hop. As you probably have seen, the Hennessy Artistry event this weekend brought upon a flurry of quality coverage of artist performances and interviews with big names like Questlove, Big Sean, and more. I'll be running down that and more on the air, and you can listen and follow along with links to what the hell I'm talking about below! The Vocalo Music Vox, hosted by Jesse Menendez, starts at 7PM so simply hit the link above or tune your dials to 89.5 FM and listen LIVE!

Vocalo.org 89.5 FM! Every Thursday at 8PM CT!
 
We've got a very nice episode of GWHH Radio on the air tonight as Maks G and I will be talking with radio personality Stretch1 (of SNRadioOnline). The multi-faced conversation will surely cover interesting topics such as college radio vs. mainstream radio and the strengths and weaknesses of the Chicago music scene that Stretch has been a part of for multiple years. But one thing that Stretch has always got going on is supporting the underground talent of the city, attending live performances, and putting on his own successful series: The Battle of the Buzz! This year's Battle of the Buzz is down to the final 8 artists and takes place October 1st, sponsored in part by us at Gowhere Hip Hop! In fact, Maks and I will be judging the event, which Stretch1 will tell us about in detail on the airwaves. Chicago, this is an event you're bound to have a good time at and enjoy... and if you're across the midwest, be on the lookout for a Battle of the Buzz near you!
 
Not only do we talk with Stretch1 tonight, but we will also be giving away a FREE pair of tickets to Bone Thugs-N-Harmony at the Congress Theater (a show we will be sponsoring as you can see on the right sidebar!). Tune in and be by your phones for your best chance to win! We'll also be recapping the week that was in Gowhere Hip Hop, which you can also see with the flurry of links below. The Vocalo Music Vox, hosted by Jesse Menendez, starts at 7PM so simply hit the link above or tune your dials to 89.5 FM to start listening now!

Mike Raspatello (of North Coast Music Festival) on GWHH Radio Recap

 
Ever wonder how a big concert event or festival becomes a reality? Well, we asked just that to chief organizer of the North Coast Music Festival, Mike Raspatello, to find out how he and his team coordinated the successful Labor Day festival here in Chicago. Just before the festival, we had Mike on-air in the studio for our GWHH Radio Show on Vocalo.org 89.5 FM (Thursdays at 8PM CT!). We not only talked about all the behind the scenes experiences in setting up the North Coast Music Festival, but also his previous work experiences, concert experiences, and artist experiences, and what tips he provides for upcoming promoters and entrepreneurs. His story is very inspiring because as Mike says, they were the underdogs, and for them to successfully put together an end of the summer music festival like North Coast with such big-name artists as Nas, Lupe Fiasco, De La Soul, and Jay Electronica (and that's only the hip hop) is truly amazing. Congrats Mike and we hope you guys can all take something out of our two-part interview above!
 
 
This also wraps up our North Coast Music Festival coverage, which also features videos and pictures of live performances of Nas & Damian Marley, Lupe Fiasco, Jay Electronica, and our interview with De La Soul. Click here for the full archive.

What the headline says... PLUS download a NEW track! In this two-fold Hollywood Holt post, we are first announcing that Hollywood Holt will be appearing on tonight's GWHH radio show on Vocalo.org 89.5 FM at 8PM CT sharp! You're gonna wanna tune in for a fun, hilarious, and educational segment where Maks and I will talk to Hollywood Holt about his upcoming mixtape, These Are The Songs That Didn't Make The Album But Are Still Cold As Hell So Shut The F*** Up Vol. 1. Whew, that's the last time I type that out. Anyway, Holt's gonna share some stories about how some of the records came together and we're gonna get the first preview of "Body Clash", "Brains", and "It's On" f/ Donnis! But we'll also be talkin' about other topics than mixtape including Holt's b-boy background, dos and don'ts for upcoming artists, and much more! One of our most fun and entertaining shows to date so stream with the utmost clarity at Vocalo.org or tune those dials into 89.5 FM in the Chi at 8PM central.

Secondly, download the brand NEW remix of N.A.S.A.'s "Gifted" with Hollywood Holt added onto the existing vocals of Lykke Li, Santogold, and oh yes, Kanye West. I loved the original and loved the Amplid remix even more (found on our GWHH December Dance Mix), so naturally, this remix is right up my alley. Hollywood adds his fun stylings to the new production and adds some clever, quick-witted lines at his usual fast pace in the process. Download that above (shouts 2 Andrew)!

On second thought, let's make this a tri-fold Hollywood Holt post. Hit the jump for the full cover and tracklist to These Are The Songs That Didn't Make The Album But Are Still Cold As Hell So Shut The F*** Up Vol. 1 due out August 28th (I copied and pasted this time!).

Be sure to click the full stream link above to get the entire show with all its editing, and more importantly to catch the crazy verse Jewels drops off an upcoming untitled project due later this summer!

TONIGHT on GWHH Vocalo Radio Show: Songwriting Segment with special guest Monster

Thumbnail image for monster on gwhh vocalo radio

Today we transformed our radio show into a segment purely on songwriting, and to help us outline everything that goes into songwriting, the art of songwriting, the business, we brought in special guest Monster (of The Loop Music Group). On tonight's show, we'll be talking about the creative process of songwriting, some of the best songwriters in today's game, tips on how to overcome obstacles in the art and business of songwriting, and much more. Monster also shares his personal experiences that provide some entertaining insight and useful advice for not only music, but life itself. He tells stories of working with Bruno Mars as well as perhaps his most 'learn the hard way' experience with a G.O.O.D. Music artist. Finally, Monster clues us in on what he is working on next, giving us the exclusive first listen of a new R&B banger from Rotimi called "Used To Be" (written by Monster, produced by The Loop). It is of stark contrast to the song he had just recently wrote and released - a summer, electro-pop anthem called "Blush" by Krewella's Jahan f/ S-Preme. Download that below in case you missed it and be sure to TUNE IN TONIGHT at 8pm CT on Vocalo.org 89.5 FM!

Rotimi featured on GWHH 89.5 FM Radio Show



Rotimi, an upcoming R&B singer currently out here in Chicago, was one of our most recent guests on our GWHH radio segment on Vocalo 89.5 FM and you can watch the video of us in the studio above! Rotimi talked many topics with Tibs, myself, and host Mz. Shenita, but mainly touched on a couple in detail: the in-depth creative process behind his collaboration with Dawn Richard (Of Dirty Money) and some insight into his lifestyle of balancing his burgeoning music career with his last semester of college at Northwestern University. We are always interested in understanding the creative process of artists, being designers ourselves, to see the similarities and differences in our natural fields (between music, art, and architecture). Rotimi's story about working with Dawn is particularly interesting and enlightening considering that Rotimi wrote the entire record, including Dawn's part. Also, Rotimi capped off the segment (but begins the video) with a special a capella of his other hot single "Beautiful Music"!

Click here to listen to the audio of the entire segment where we also discuss some behind the scenes details of our interview with Ludacris, and become a fan of Rotimi on Facebook. You can also DOWNLOAD "You Already Know" below in case you still need it. It's been gettin' some burn on Power 92 and WGCI out here in Chicago and hopefully soon to a radio station near you! Finally, remember to check us out on Vocalo 89.5 FM every Thursday at 11:20 AM CT. Enjoy!

Last Thursday, S-Preme was our special guest on our weekly radio show at Vocalo.org 89.5 FM. Together with host Mz Shenita, we had an eye-opening discussion about the politics we see and experience within the Chicago hip hop scene. We also discussed a little bit about S-Preme's last project, The Sicktape Volume Two, and got some brand new details on his upcoming projects, Is This A Mixtape?!, S-Prodigy, and Everyone Loves Everything. That's right, 3 projects to come - all with different concepts and production that S-Preme describes in the video above. Expect that project to hit Gowhere in just a couple of weeks. Finally, S-Preme shares a funny anecdote from an experience with Lupe Fiasco before dropping a fun little freestyle live on-air!

The video above showcases the highlights from the show; the full audio stream above can take you to our discussion of last week's biggest mainstream releases including Drake's "Over", T.I.'s "I'm Back", and the video premiere for Lupe Fiasco & Kenna's "Resurrection". Remember to tune once again this Thursday at 11:20am because you never know who we're gonna bring in next! Enjoy!

In case you missed our first weekly radio segment on Vocalo 89.5, you can now simply stream the audio above and let us know what you think! Working with our lovely host Mz Shenita, we began the show with some introductions about GWHH and ourselves. Spanning for about 30 minutes we got to cover other topics like the future of commercial radio, the direction blogging is headed, the independent artist, the power of the mixtape, future plans for GWHH, and a small recap of highlights from our past week. There was even an interesting audio clip from a previous Vocalo interview on whether Grandmaster Flash thinks if hip hop is dead. 

It was definitely a great start to something powerful, as well as an amazing experience for both Tibs and I. I'll never forget our drive down the Navy Pier strip, and the amazing view from the Vocalo lobby which you can check out in the slideshow below. It's an invigorating feeling to be right on the water looking out into an endless view of Lake Michigan on one end, and the Chicago Skyline on the other! Hope you enjoy our first radio show, and can tune in for many more to come! To infinity and beyond!
