Hex One | Where I'll Go (Prod. by Klaus Layer) | Music Video

The first single from Hex One's official debut solo album "Words Worth a Thousand Pictures"

Album Notes:
Fueled by today's lack of appreciation and the decline in the art of the lyricist, Hex One's latest album 'Words Worth a Thousand Pictures' aims to take a stand for those who are truly masters of their craft. Technical, yet with a clear and concise message and deeply personal at times, Hex One offers a glimpse into his life as an MC and the world he lives in as seen through the scope of his lens. Backed by hard headnodic beats, deep, soulful samples with east coast and jazz influences, and booming drums and bass lines, Hex masterfully shatters contemporary society's notion of Hip-hop being a lowbrow genre of music.

Despite music itself being highly subjective in nature, he aims to remove some of this subjectivity and boldly proclaim that some art simply takes more skill than others and talent is most certainly measurable. The ironic disconnect, however, between this measure of talent and the measure of one's success poses to be one of his life's greatest woes. The album is thus presented with a subtle melancholic tone throughout, as he struggles to come to terms with this realization. The bigger irony perhaps being that he does so with the same intricate attention to detail and lyrical prowess that is undervalued and overlooked in Hip-hop's musical landscape today. His philosophy remains: if a picture is worth a thousand words, so too can a poets words be worth a thousand pictures.

Rhythm Roulette | Mr. Carmack

On the latest installment of MASS APPEAL's Rhythm Roulette, we've brought Los Angeles-based producer Mr. Carmack down to Good Records in Manhattan's East Village—blindfolded, picking up vinyls, you know the drill.

The Team Supreme affiliate, known for his groovy beats and signature dance-appropriate drums, pulled off the difficult challenge of producing a beat using merely the randomly selected records, which included Ester Phillips' 'For All We Know' LP and a Afro-Latin soul album by Mulatu Astatke and his Ethiopian Quintet.

Accompanied by San Francisco-based rapper and frequent collaborator Adam Vida, Carmack got right to work. He lifted some percussion from Mulatu Astatke and his Ethiopian Quintet, also sampling a couple others to kick out two beats—a ready-to-go Vida laid a rhyme over one of them.

Watch a new episode of Rhythm Roulette above to see the how the magic was made, then head to Mr. Carmack's site for his remix of A$AP Ferg's "East Coast".

Lusid Art | Ironlak Studio

Gold Coast-based visual story teller and illustrator Lusid Art (Alex Saba) creates an illustration at the Ironlak Studio in Brisbane, Australia.

Lusid talks us through her image reference choice, layer construction and what leads her to a reference in the first place. “I’m also drawn to inspiration and images with some attitude or some grit to them. People who tell a story – you can see it in the back of their eyes that there’s something there” says Lusid. Also pointing to her artistic direction in using familiar imagery presented in a new light for the viewer, Lusid’s delicate yet bold approach to her application process reflects a true dedication to her craft – in this case using Ironlak Sketching Pencils and Woodless Graphite Pencils to recreate a found image that inspired ‘Praise You’ – a group exhibition curated by Lusid opening at aMBUSH Gallery Friday, 8 September 2017.

Day Zero | Documentary on Smino + Zero Fatigue | Mass Appeal

Smino is undeniably dope. The St. Louis native comes from a musical family, with his father being a keyboardist and his mother a singer and a grandfather that played with the blues legend Muddy Waters. Yet, following high school, Smino felt like he had to leave his family and his hometown to pursue a career in music in Chicago.

"I left on some desperate shit," Smino says in our new documentary, DAY ZERO. "The way I left St. Louis, I got a bag and a place to sleep. And the place I had to sleep was a small booth in this place called the Music Factory.”

That experience gave Smino a creative community and a path to success. On March 14, he released his debut solo album, blkswn, through his own Zero Fatigue label in partnership with Downtown Records. Even though he left home to find his success, the release date--3/14--was an ode to his hometown's area code. As he states in the film's opening, “We done came a long fucking way. We done been on the east coast. South, west coast. We been to Canada. But still ain’t no motherfucking city fucking with St. Louis, Missouri. And that’s just as 100 as I can keep it.”

DAY ZERO follows Smino as he returns home to closeout his first headlining tour. The film documents his dedication, his motivation, his music, and his undeniable love for the city that raised him. Watch the full-length doc above.

Does Chicago Breed The TOUGHEST Basketball Players? "Heart Of The City: F.I.N.A.O."

In the 3rd episode of our 4 part "Heart of The City" series we take a look at Chicago, arguably the toughest basketball city in the country to grow up in. We take a look at what some of Chicago's most respected basketball figures have to say.

In the face of this unspeakable tragedy the city has banded together. It's basketball community is extraordinarily tight-knit, and its resolve is proven and emboldened with every passing summer. Everything is on the line on every is their escape and 'hoop' is all they know.

Will Bynum, Bobby Simmons, Sonny Parker & Scottie Pippen talk about the struggles hoopers face growing up. The reality out their front door is much different than the realities many of us face on a daily basis. Mentors like Larry Stewart, Mike Irvin, Simeon Coach Rob Smith & Lefty Boyd do their best to keep kids and adults off the street and in the gyms.

The story of Saieed Ivey is unfortunate. With every loss comes a chance to lead those following to a better future. Chareda Carter should be the last mother to tell this story. Failure Is Not An Option, not for those in the city of Chicago or for kids around the world.

Jessie Reyez talks Childhood, Following Dreams, Latinas in Hip Hop & R&B, Busking to BET Awards

Hard Knock Tv's Nick Huff Barili sits down with Jessie Reyez for in-depth interview at the park. Part 1 starts with Jessie describing what her childhood was like growing up in Toronto and wanting to be a singer at a young age. Jessie explains that she was fortunate because her parents encouraged her to follow her dreams. Her Mom would tell her "Con Todo Pulmon", meaning sing with all her lungs. She would say, if you are going to do something, you have to give it your all!

When Nick asks her about the lack of Latinos in Hip Hop and R&B, Jessie states that although there aren't that many on mainstream outlets like radio and television, there are still Latin artists doing Hip Hop and R&B and connecting with fans. People like Princess Nokia, and Kali Uchis who connect with there fans through the internet and usually have fan-bases that are more loyal than artists that just get played on the radio.

Jessie shares how she used to busk at the beach while she worked at a restaurant and would always be hustling for people to hear her music, including handing out her mixtapes outside of a Kendrick Lamar show and how surreal it feels to now be performing at the BET Awards. Much more to come! Nick and Jessie talked for almost an hour.
