Damon worked hard to find Freshco and Jay-Z a record deal. There were many labels talking the talk but they would not go all the way to sign Freshco or Jay-Z and Sauce Money. He forms S. Freshco continued with the name the No! Fresh lands a position at Soundtrack New York mixing and editing sound for television and radio commercials.
This was perfect for him as he wanted to make sure he was a father who could provide financially health benefits included for his new family. By while many were asking Freshco when the next record was coming out, Fresh was busy in acting school, landing a television commercial for Redbull and rapping in a commercial Coca-Cola.
By , Fresh was working on purchasing his first house with his wife and pulling down a very healthy post audio engineer salary. Fresh believes that Miz would have been better off living in New York with the tremendous production skills Miz possesses! Before then Miz was also part of a Hip Hop play production that was touring the world and booked for months out.
OK here are a few tracks that the team sampled use ya ears and see if you can tell on which tracks they have been used right answer get maximum respect so hit up the comments. To be honest its a little fail on my part but a lot of samples elude me for this post so if anyone wants to flaunt the knowledge please do so.
Oh and have a look below at the trailer for a Freshco and Miz Documentary. Born to an international globetrotting life style now residing in the southeast of the UK. Self confessed nerd, hip hop, comic books, toys and gourmet cooking is what I rep. Doing it for the love of peoples creative endeavors, new or old. Cee for giving Big Daddy Kane the beat that was supposed to be his.
Or seeing who produced track 5. Or looking at never seen before photos. Does anybody remember this? There would be a book of selected songs from current and popular artists, and you could order whichever songs you wanted and make a custom tape. Speaking of which, the number of shitty albums released on tape was far less than the number of shitty albums available on itunes, especially with rap.
If nothing else, I miss buying tapes and seeing the order forms for merchandise from the group and record label inside of the fold out liner notes. Who really buys music in physical media form in ? A small number of folks, but pressing up music in any physical form is risky. But then again, my first two albums are near impossible to find, and I get requests to re-press them. Call it the era I grew up in, call it stubbornness, but cassettes will always reign supreme in my book.
VHS tapes. Music Videos: Yo! Right: Me and my pops jammin on drums and organ in the basement when I was 6 years old. Oldest tape I got and the first music I ever made…in the first grade! If you need a title of a joint, let me know. Shits is hard. What do you think is on ohhh…Tape 14? They may wanna Do The Right Thing it all the way out and go get a ghetto blaster to be super-retro, but maybe tapes are too much of a hassle and somebody will make a an ipod that sits inside of a ghetto blaster frame, who knows.
I always tell people, hip-hop is a generational thing. Back in the day albums were albums. People would take their time with it, putting one out every 2 to 4 years… It had to be good.
Now everythings sped up, digital, cheap, so they make a good single and throw other shit 15 tracks in there to fill it up, e that being enhanced by the iTunes feature of buying one song at the time. The sales of full albums suffered from it, this itunes thing was bound to happen.
Being its a concept album, I dont get how people can listen to it in bits and pieces…unless they wanna just vibe out to one particular beat. That and Car Wash. I had a lot of tapes but now I only do CDs with the occasional vinyl.
I want a CD not something that could get lost forever in a lightning storm. I want to go through the pages of the liner notes and read every single line in there. And it makes me so mad when I buy a CD and there are no liner notes or anything just a front and back cover in 1 sheet. I want to listen from beginning to end and what that person was going through artistically and not at that time.
I listen to albums not songs. Btw, hell up in harlem is a good stuff man. I know the dvd came out called The Boss. I had so many tapes, or at least it felt like it at the time. While I was moving last month, I ran into a small box of tapes that I had at my parents house.
Had my No Face tape in there. About five years my boy bought asked to borrow some tapes because he only had tape player in his car. I lent him some, mostly old home made stuff I had from back in the day thankfully. Good shit, still have alot of my hip hop collection in cassette form, although I have the cd versions of some of those albums. Yes I myslef feel the same way about buying a digital version of an album today, never have, never will, just not the same , a Dr.
Dre Album, etc can never equal the experience of having a physical form with liner notes, the smell, the feel. I was 11 at the time and remember wondering if De La scented the booklet on purpose, which would be a pretty amazing thing to do.
Pine scented cassette for the ride. You are hilarious Jay. I zoomed in on that box of tapes and saw my footprint on one of them. My bad. I feel you J. Personics was the name of the custom tape maker, I even have a few those too.
Great Post. That was it, good lookin out, I had forgotten the name! I gotta agree with you on the liner notes, yet the same can be said about CDs. I have about 45 tape cases and maybe 8 of them have their tapes in them. Too many times i left them in my boys car, someone borrowed them or i just straight up lost them. Youre not gonna lose vinyl or your ipod in your boys whip. Tapes live! I got a friend in austin, tx, who has a tapes only record label. Kills You Records. Silent Murder is the best thing Nas has ever done.
Might be worth hitting up a liquor store for…lol. When I was a little kid i had my tape deck and i used my dads. I would put the two decks face to face and make mixes. When I got a little older my pops got me a cool deck that was tape to tape. I could record a song and in a flash record off the radio.We Dont Play [Vinyl] Freshco & Miz (Artist) Format: Vinyl.
