As many of you have seen by now I will officially be leaving the nest and flying off to bigger and better things. The GowhereHipHop crew has asked me to come in and become one with the team and I have happily accepted. Running my own movement for the past two and a half years has been a sweet ass deal. I’ve not only come to discover and learn so much, I’ve also come to appreciate so much more as well. Hopefully you my homies will continue to ride with me. I love and appreciate every single one of you and you’re all a big part of my life. This site and the whole YNMD name and brand is literally you and none of these power moves would be possible without you, so I thank you greatly from the bottom of my soul. Now please join in and raise your glass with me….To a combination of great minds, may we be able to continue to bless you with and endless amount of quality music and our dedication to the game. Let us all live in this moment and soak in it. This only means great things ahead for you, the city of Chicago, and the universe. #BETDAT!

hmmmm….curious in hearing what the kid has in store now.
Odd Future Records is extremely excited to announce our first official signing, Young Ni**a. While our original intent was not to sign anyone to the label we simply could not pass up the opportunity to sign somebody this talented. Young Ni**a embodies the DIY ethic and persona of Odd Future along with a commercial appeal that transcends demographics. We will be premiering his first single today at 3pm PST on http://www.oddfuture.com
Wooooord……..Well God damn.
Great music withstands the test of time. Count “Audio Dope II” and “Address,” from Curren$y’s 2010 album Pilot Talk, as examples of that. Ski Beatz, the producer of the tracks, recently told XXLMag.com that the beats were a decade and a half old when he gave them to Spitta.
“We was in Jamaica with Stalley and Curren$y and I was about to make a beat, and Dame [Dash] was like, ‘Yo, why don’t you go to your hard drive? I know you got mad beats on your hard drive!’” he remembers. “I’m like, aight. So I went through every song. I had, like, thousands of songs on the hard drive. Hours. And I found ‘Audio Dope [II].’ I found ‘Address.’ And those were beats that I made in like ’96, ’97, some shit like that. I had never used [them], but they were always there.”
Surprisingly, Ski says not much was changed on either beat from their original form during from the Reasonable Doubt days. “We added a bassline [for both], and that was it,” he says.
Though those two were definitely gems, the veteran producer says he won’t be pulling any more tricks out of his hard drive. “I done went through the stash,” he laughs. “The stash is done.”
Keeping with his recent trend of pairing with artists for full projects, Ski recently teamed with Murs to produce the entirety of Love & Rockets, Volume 1: The Transformation. – XXL
