Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All

The Kids with the really long name or OFWGKTA are currently the new folks hitting the Hip Hop world. These kids and yes kids, the group from what I know of is no one over the age of 22. With members Tyler the Creator, Hodgy Beats, Left Brain and Domo Genesis and rest of the team they have been changing the game with their style. I just currently got to know about Odd Future and attended their concert in DC, what caught me was their stage presence and that is what usually gets me to turn into a great supporter. I was hearing many comparisons with these cats and names like Tech N9ne, Wu-Tang, N.E.R.D and Eminem, those are very solid names to be around so you had to give them a listen once hearing that. With shock value that you see videos and lyrics they have their own little genre but it works for them. There care-free living shows that they are enjoying every moment so you gotta love that, you have to see that in artist early.
Check out OFWGKTA on Jimmy Fallon and Tyler's Yonkers video which dropped.

When did you start rapping?

I started to rap my junior year of high school. I’d always been a hip hop fan, and I was listening to rap artists. I never really like tried it until I saw my friends doing it. They kind of, like, brought it down to earth for me. It was kind of addictive.

Where did you go to high school?

I went to Takoma Academy in Takoma Park, Md.

Is that where you’re from, too?

Apple iPhone Telephoto Lens – 8X Zoom



This little add-on peaked our interests when it appeared on a web-based Japanese infomercial a few months ago (think of a Japanese version of pitchman Anthony Sullivan). To our disappointments, the item wasn’t available for international shipping. Now thanks to online store Photojojo, the Telephoto Lens for Apple iPhone is finally here. Comes with a hard protective case for the phone, simply twist on the telephoto lens with a 8X zoom. A foldaway tripod for those delicate long distance shots or a D.I.Y. mini movie staring yourself. A great gift for anyone to explore their inner Scorsese or Leibovitz. via: FM

Dats Dope Q&A : Dre The Mayor

Here is another Dats Dope Q&A with the DMV Hip Hop Scene and we have Dre The Mayor who is part of the 368 movement and who have been doing real well with the artist they have sign and promoting DMV artist. We ask questions from Respect in Hip Hop, is the DMV getting the recognition they deserve to the Marketing side of Hip Hop in DC 




Dre “the Mayor” Hopson
What’s your title with 368?
I’m the president.

When was it created?
We’ve been around since April of 2009.

What does your job specifically entail?
My job entails just about everything that 368 does, from community initiatives to artist development to production to writing to promotions. Whatever we do, I oversee it all.

On your mission statement on the Web site, it said that you try to promote DC’s unique sound with respect to hip hop artists. What’s unique about DC’s sound?
I think that DC’s sound is unique because it’s highly influenced by live instrumentation and go-go. Not that we have any straight go-go artists, but I definitely think our hip hop developed kind of late because the cool thing in this area happened to be in a go-go band if you were a musician in this area. Times have changed so drastically since a short time ago, when I was in high school and college. You didn’t hear about too many DC rappers, so, like Wale and Tabi were starting to get national recognition. And I think that’s no lack of talent, it’s just the fact that nobody was focusing their energy on trying to be a hip hop artist. Everybody was either an athlete or they were trying to be in a go-go band. So, when someone finally made it cool, and people realized, “Hey, I can really make it as a rapper, and people will accept it here,” that’s when I think the tables began to turn. So, I think that in the past it has been the trend or the culture for, if you wanted to be in hip hop, or if you wanted to be in R&B, you had to leave our area. We didn’t have industry here. There are no record labels that you can go downtown and meet with. It’s all government. So, you had to go to Atlanta, you had to go to New York, you had to go to LA. And most people who are from here who had the talent became citizens of other cities. So, they’re not ATLiens, or they now claim New York, or they now claim LA, and they just happen to be from DC. I don’t think it should be like that. I think we should be able to be talented right where we’re from and have our industry here as well.
