YP & DJ RTC – No Sleep

By | 5 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/11/yp-y-not-my-dream-video-2"> Good musicians embody their environment and convey their entire life experience through their music. After one listen of YP's No Sleep, you'll know he's 100% Chicago from his slang all the way to bone-chilling production he wishes to serve as the template for his 24/7 grind. Bleeding 773 with his every act of microphone malice, the young Bull links up with not one but two Chi-Town powerhouses in <a href="http://www.rubyhornet.com/new-post/yp-x-dj-rtc-no-sleep-mixtape">RubyHornet</a> and <a href="http://www.djbooth.net/index/mixtapes/entry/yp-no-sleep">DJBooth</a> and uses his spotlight to deliver a project stuffed with realism while others would squander their new audiences' attention with surreal fluff.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/11/yp-y-not-my-dream-video-2"> It's safe to assume that by now we all know sleep is the cousin of death. But for anyone needing a refresher course, let <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/yp">YP's</a> "No Sleep Intro" serve as your reminder.

Freddie Gibbs Feat. YP – “Something New”

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/08/closed-sessions-freddie-gibbs-edition"> It's fascinating to follow the trajectory of some of those old soul or jazz joints that were hot when our parents were our age, and trace them through time to see how various artists flip, alter, and incorporate them into music that is relevant today. Take for example, "<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84jDDjkiHcI">Bumpy’s Lament</a>" by Isaac Hayes.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/08/download-freddie-gibbs-str8-killa-no-filla-no-dj"> With the ridiculous amount of music we’re flooded with on a monthly, weekly and even daily basis, it’s easy to take for granted all the work that goes into producing just one song (yeah, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/prince-says-the-internet-is-completely-over#comment-936189">TRA</a> & <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/prince-says-the-internet-is-completely-over#comment-936597">El Prez</a> what you guys mentioned a while back finally sunk in).

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/01/download-yelawolf-trunk-muzik"> In a weekend that saw 18,000 ecstatic concert-goers swamped in hives to enjoy Pitchfork's annual music festival, the sweltering avenue of W. Chicago found another reason to be excited about an live event. Yelawolf, the Alabama smooth talker who commanded the rookie spotlight with his immaculate mixtape <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/01/download-yelawolf-trunk-muzik">Trunk Muzik</a> earlier this year, had finally made his way to the Windy City.
