"The Medium"  

So, last year my good homie Cas Metah (Scribbling Idoits) sent me a song to do a scratch hook on called 'The Medium.'  It featured the usual SI heavy hitters - Just Me, Cas Metah, and Mouf Warren - over a heavy, well chopped, soulful horn sample.  The cuts came out real nice for the hook, and it left me wondering what would happen to this song.

Well, soon enough I got a message on Facebook from the producer of 'The Medium,' Whatson.  He asked me to do cuts on another joint.  This one was another big tune that featured Rasco and L.E.G.A.C.Y.  The song turned out the be the introduction for the album.  I hooked up a scratch sentence to kick it off.  Here's a sneak peek of what I did.

Whatson - Introducing feat. L.E.G.A.C.Y. & Rasco (Unofficial Snippet) [Strong Language]
Produced by Whatson
Cuts by DJ Sean P

Needless to say, Whatson has heat y'all. Check out the trailer for the record above. On top of the heavy sample based beats, the album looks strong with a ton of guest emcees like: Rasco, J. Sands, Reef, Braille, Theory Hazit, SI and more.  Be sure to like Whatson on  Facebook and give him a shout.  Look for more news and official songs from the album this year.

Playdough 'Hotdoggin' 
Release Date 4.26.11  

Finally!  Playdough is set to release an official followup to 2005's Don't Drink the Water.  A long time in the works, Hotdoggin is deep on styles and content.  I've heard the record through several different stages, and I'm really impressed with the extra effort taken in the studio to make each song unique. There's so much I could say about it, but for now...peep the promo video (by DustBrand Films).  The end of the video gives you a sneak peek of the title cut, "Hotdoggin," with cuts by yours truly and producton by DJ Bombay.  The beat throughout most of the video is from the song ".38 Special" produced by the homey DJ Stibs.

Playdough's "Hotdoggin" is set for an indie release April 26th 2011.  It will be out everywhere digitally, and CDs will be available at iamplaydough.com, select quality retailers, and live shows.
