Archive for the ‘First Dirt’ Category

 

First Dirt went on their first European tour in November 2015. They scheduled, funded, and coordinated it completely independently. They built their relationships and got people to believe in their movement. Hip hop is no longer a genre of music where artists take pride in working hard to get their music to the fans. Not First Dirt.

These guys have been taking their music to the people since day one. They don;t wait for anyone. They have faith in their music and just want to opportunity to be heard. So even if you don’t like their music you have no choice but to respect their hustle. Lets keep that tradition alive and not let the convenience of modern technology cast a shadow on the ones that stay true to the artform.

Checkout a day in the life of First Dirt Producer LEKSBEAT.

From sharing the stage with his First Dirt brethren at Paid Dues 2013 with some legendary artist like Mobb Deep, Talib Kweli, Tech N9ne, Black Hippy, Scarface, and Souls of Mischief just to name a few, Leksbeat, First Dirt Producer and DJ, gives you an inside look of his process of flipping a sample using his weapon of choice, the Akai MPC 2500. For this instrumental, he took a classic Christmas sample, Santa baby by Eartha Kitt, and made a jolly Christmas song into a raw hip hop track.

Timothy Rhyme – “I Love My Life” ft. MicBarz, Noelle Chesnut

West coast emcee, Timothy Rhyme, is determined to inspire. As an indie artist, his life is no cake walk but he refuses to let anything control his perception. After fighting for his life, relocating to LA, going thru life’s ups and downs, and dealing with the music industry norms, this young star in the making has more than enough justification in looking at the glass as half empty. But he chooses to do the contrary.
Premiering on UndergroundHipHopBLOG.com Timothy Rhyme’s single, “I Love My Life”, is a song that empowers while it entertains. Teaming up with Atlanta-based lyricist MicBarz and Los Angeles singer extrordinaire Noelle Chesnut, this song is something special just in time for the holidays. Dedicated to those that need a boost, this song speaks to anyone in a slump looking for some motivation.

Shoutout to our fam over at 8th Of Dope for this dope ass review!

“The First Dirt team hit the ground running after rocking the stage at the 2013 Paid Dues festival in San Bernardino back in March. It seems every time i turn around FD is conjuring up a new project & in a nutshell, turning heads. With that being said, 60 East brings you another heartfelt installment with his latest mixtape “Mood Muzik Volume one” dropping December 10th, 2013. Consisting of a selection of production by Joe Budden, he attempts to tap into your deepest thoughts with this tape. 60 hit the nail on the head when describing this project by saying “From beginning to end the listener is taken through a series of personal stories and life experiences, in a raw and lyrical fashion”. ”
