Short Fuze & Uncommon Nasa Release Mr. Robot Themed Song, Generosity 


Generosity is inspired by Uncommon Nasa and Short Fuze's love of the Mr. Robot television series and what the show represents in it's message and it's art. This song isn't a play by play of any of the seasons of the show or what happens on them, but it's an attempt to get into the mind of people like Elliot, Darlene, Angela or the other characters. 

What if Elliot was a rapper/poet with something to say about how he found the world? This is that. The goal was to create a song that stands alone whether you've seen the show or not, while also paying some tribute to it. 

Season 3 ended on Wednesday, Net Neutrality ended on Thursday. and now this on Friday.  Enjoy it, while you can. 

A "Pay What You Want" Download with the Instrumental version is available at Bandcamp, it also streams on Youtube and Soundcloud

Uncommon Nasa Releases Video For Gingerbread Hag 

Recently, Uncommon Nasa and Man Bites Dog Records dropped the video for Gingerbread Hag. Here is a description and quote from Nasa himself: 

Every song starts with an idea in someones head, some take longer than others to come to fruition. Gingerbread Hag is one of those songs. Somehow Uncommon Nasa's brain came up with an idea to make a rap song that was an inverse telling of the fable, Hansel & Gretel, told from the point of view of the old woman in the gingerbread house. When Nasa's critically acclaimed record, Written At Night, was being formulated it was finally time for the Gingerbread Hag to reveal herself to the world. Showing her face proudly during the thematic album's nightmare sequence was highly intentional. There were no better choices to share this exploration of the selfishness and privledge of children than Brzowksi on vocals and C-Money Burns on some chilling guitar licks. There was also no better place to shoot the visual representation of this idea then their wide open space of Portland, Maine. With that, hardened New Yorkers, Uncommon Nasa and director Mike Petrow piled into a car for the 5 hour trip North.

"What you are viewing is the result of an idea formed outside of the box and molded into a piece of art that hopefully sparks some thought and imagination. "-  Uncommon Nasa

Prodigy Of Mobb Deep Passed Away  

Earlier this week, Prodigy of Mobb Deep passed away at the age of 40. Those of you that know me, know that Mobb Deep, specifically Prodigy was a huge influence on my style. He was one of the best story tellers in hip hop hands down. I wrote a tribute to him a few days ago. Here it is in it's entirety: 

Sitting here bumping Mobb Deep genuinely upset that Prodigy is gone. I never had a chance to meet him. But he was such an influence on my style. He was so vivid with his words and the way he painted pictures. I remember sitting in my room in '95 and '96 just soaking in The Infamous and Hell On Earth. Prodigy's words just complimented Havoc's beats perfectly and later on, the Alchemist's beats. I've had many influences on flows, song structure, album sound, etc...  

But, Prodigy was definitely a main influence for me. As hip hop evolves and rap evolves the thing that will never change is a great story. Prodigy was definitely up there with the best of the story tellers. R.I.P. Thank you for your contribution to our culture and making me a better MC in my early years. #TheInfamous
