What’s good fly girls and fly guys? Hope y’all are happy the week is almost over. This is my Friday as my ass is leaving for Reno Nevada for some college football (Boise St. Vs. U of Nevada), drinking (me? drink? naaaah) and some gambling. It’s been awhile since I’ve gotten away, since my Denver excursion back in July, so I’m looking forward to this weekend.
WYDU will be on cruise control while I’m gone. I have a great interview coming up with the creator of one of my favorite albums of the year (that doesn’t get nearly enough shine in my opinion) dropping on Friday as well as one or two New Artist Spotlights popping off during the weekend. So you probably won’t notice anything too different, but if you email me, it might take me until Monday or even Tuesday until I get back to you….
Be good and have a great weekend…I know I will
Any blog named after my all-time favorite hip hop song will indeed get noticed by me. Add the fact that his first two posts had to do with the remixes of said song AND a OLD SCHOOL Beastie Boys VHS that I’ve been looking for forever.
Only three posts for this bad boy so far, but my expectations run high. So check it out and tell ‘em that crazy ass Trav sent you!
What does Trav & Big Daddy Kane have in Common???

MECCAGODZILLA – ERROARS
Trav’s Take: My good man MeccaGodZilla drops his instrumental album, which should be all that and a bag of chips WITH the dip, if yaknowhaimean….. I’ll have more to say about this album in the weeks to come
After numerous guest appearances on albums like Eric Bobo of Cypress Hill’s Meeting of the Minds Vol.1, MF Grimm’s American Hunger, Vordul’s Megagraphitti, and executive producing Kong’s solo debut Shackles Off, RAVAGE the MeccaGodzilla of the Monsta Island Czars & NY Tributary is releasing his first solo album titled ERROARS on November 11, 2008 through Godsendant Music.
So what exactly is “Erroars?”
ERROARS is an instrumental release that takes listeners through incredible chambers of Long Island style madness!
An “error” is a deviation from what is normal or ‘correct.’ A “roar” to utter a loud, deep cry or howl, as in excitement, distress, or anger. Put both ideas together and ERROARS is born!
The only feature on this album is from Queens NYC native and lyrical supremacist Junclassic (of M.I.C & Classified Recordings LLC).
In Early 2008 MeccaGodZilla released American Monsta, the American Gangster Remix album, as a way to let fans know that the music stays in motion despite sketchy details of the Monsta Island Czars splitting up. The remix album caught the attention of journalists worldwide who featured it in Hip Hop Connection Magazine (Europe), on mp3.com and many of the Hip Hop blogs.
ERROARS is the very next step for this budding “artistpreneur.”

Free Download: Shorty Raw “Magnum Opus” album sampler MP3
About the release: Magnum Opus means an artist/writers best work to date. Shorty Raw feels “Magnum Opus” is definitely his best work since he has been recording music. This album displays Shorty Raw’s experiences and relations both socially and intimately. His objective for Magnum Opus was to bring that classic feel that was so prominent in the early/mid 90′s. It literally took him and production partner KHZ years to put this album together. They even went as far as re-recording the whole project to assure that they had an album that banged from start to finish. Shorty Raw’s main man KHZ, did roughly 85% of the album. He also had the pleasure of working with 8:35 out of Portland, OR., Go from Augusta, GA. and the up and coming powerhouse ToneBeats.
