Twitter was abound with memes this week when “EDM DJ” ‘Zedd’ seemingly communicated he felt Shek Wes – Mo Bamba was somehow derivitive of one of his previous recordings while also expressing that he (in addition) did not particular enjoy it.
There have been some great Electronic and Rap and/or Trap Collabs in the recent era of music.
Kanye West sampling high-end indie-electro and Jay-Z’s verses over top those beats on Watch The Throne comes to mind (specifically).
Harlem Shake, Just Blaze, etc, etc.
But let’s be honest with one another.
How many times have you encountered a (so-called) “Remix” or “Edit” by an “EDM DJ” of a already present rap/trap song (Flick Of The Wrist-esque perhaps, for example) where the ‘remix/edit’ is legitimately some unrelated sonic nonsense leading up to an alternate drop of the pre-existing record.
The point is, you’re either for the culture or you whore the culture.
Majority of these “EDM DJ’s” are plants (Horticulture).
In all seriousness, If Zedd doesn’t like it he can chalk it up to reparations.
In the worlds of Silkk Tha Shockker:
“Charge It 2 Da Game.”

Hit-A-Lik Entertainment Chief Executive Officer Charles “C-HU$TLE” Coffey was bitten by the attack dog of a crazed fan, early last Saturday morning in Central New Jersey.
Though details are still emerging sources close to Coffey have confirmed the K-9’s motives were those, of an assassin.
“Yeah, for sure. No question- that dog was lookin’ to kill, but we ain’t pressin’ charges…”
Said an unidentified Iaw enforcement agent.
C-HU$TLE was not available for comment but released this statement.
“Presuming there are no complications, Lord willing – I’m going to make a full recovery…”
Fan speculation about the incident reached a fever pitch when photos of Coffey’s K-9 inflicted bite wound emerged on satellite media platforms late last Sunday evening.
This is C-HU$TLE’s first assassination attempt.
Hit-A-Lik artist and Chandelier Money Gang head honcho J-Maul ran into Outkast legend Andre 3000 last week in lower manhattan.
The “Rob A “Bank” MC chopped it up with Dre who was good enough to flick it up one time for the gram.
Though details were scarce, it has been confirmed the two crossed paths during the course of a creative partnership J-Maul has with Supreme.
J-Maul was not available for comment but his soundcloud is below:
It is with great sadness and deep regret we confirm that Micah Bowman (“M. Dot/Dotoz”) has perished from the earth at just 34 years of age. Micah was a great friend to many and was incredible artist. He was loved by his close friends, grandmother, mother, sisters and his nephew Perry by whom he is survived.
Bowman was a standout athlete. In his youth he was widely regarded as one of the regions top basketball players. Johnny Floyd was quoted as saying: “Micah is the best basketball player I’ve ever been on the court with and I’ve been on the court with them all.” During high school Bowman spent much time running pick-up games with his friends, including many epic match-ups against Whitney Davis, (Pioneer HS/Ohio University standout) who was 1 grade Bowman’s junior. “He was an all around great guy.” Said Davis.
During his early 20’s Bowman recorded a solo album produced by Grammy Award winning Michael “Mikey Millions” Larson (i am OTHER) and Drew Money, formally known as PRO-V (of “Hello Brooklyn” fame). The album was recorded in South Beach and featured contributions from the Heat Makerz, David Banner, The Alchemist and DipSet. It was received as an instant classic.
Bowman encountered and collaborated with many of his prominent contemporaries. He opened shows for D12 when Proof was alive, Obie Trice, DJ Quik, and Mobb Deep before the passing of Prodigy HNIC. Bowman has 100’s of recordings both released and unreleased. His 2010 Mixtape, “The Ganz 1.0” was extremely well received and is regarded as a hip hop classic.
Lyrically Bowman was an inspiration. An entire city of Ann Arbor rappers would have killed for Bowman’s ability to think outside the box metaphorically, or of course – his voice. Bowman’s voice was classic. Jadakiss and Beanie Sigel were some of his favorite MC’s and his voice was as cutting and as true as theirs in this author’s opinion. Micah was often enamored with artists of cut short legacy such as: Roc Ducati, Stack Bundlez and one of his last favorite “new” rappers, Chinx Drugz.
Bowman inspired not just musicians but people. His fans were fanatical. They didn’t just love his music they idolized him. He made people’s entire careers – just by being their friend.
Rest In Peace Micah. You will be deeply missed, but your music and legacy will live on forever.
MILLIONÈS OBLITERATES ROLLING LOUD AFTER PARTY
By Chad Coffey
May 13, 2018
Miguel Milliones represented the Billionaire Boys Club at Peach Fuzz Downtown Miami this year, immediately following N.E.R.D.’s performance (which of course included current Billboard smash “Lemon”) on the Rolling Loud Main Stage.
Milliones was whisked the 14.1 miles southward by “official personnel.”
“Fortunately there wasn’t too much traffic.”
It had been 18 months since Milliones had spun a live set in South Florida as his relocation to Los Angeles is now two-years, complete.
An eclectic mix of class hip-hop and contemporary hits were on display for the nights duration (as seen in above media).
A swift transition from the classic Ly flaglant Jay-Z – “Blow The Whistle” freestyle remix to the Uber-recent Calvin Harris – “Slide” (ft. Migos & Frank Ocean).
