Hey everybody, I have something very special to share today. I’ve posted it over at thesixtyone.com (the musical discovery site).
For those of you that don’t know, I also dabble in hip-hop production and have something of a name for myself in the rap community. Recently, I was lucky enough to catch up with my old friend Benny Satchel, who makes up 1/2 of the legendary rap group The Tahj Commentary. Benny and I met up in my studio here outside of DC, and after having an adult beverage or two, we started up a little freestyle session. I decided to lay down a phat beat on the keyboard, and roll tape – and that’s when the magic began.
In less than one hour, Benny and I, amazed at the great vibe we had together in front of the microphone, had cut a track. And one heck of a track it was. A couple hours of editing later, and I realized I had a miracle on my hands: it was the most important, elegant, and inspired piece of music I had ever heard in my life. It was, in fact, a hip-hop masterpiece of epic proportions.
Okay guys, CHECK IT OUT!!! After you listen, make sure to ‘heart’ this song as many times as possible! Let’s take this thing to the top!!! Let’s get Boys (Lovin’ Each Other) on the front page of thesixtyone.com….and beyond!!!
