Jay Who?

Just making sure that everyone who supported and posted my last album “Where Da Sidewalk Ends” or my songs “Doin My Numbers” “Impeach The Governor (Blago)” and “Mr. Anonymous” is serviced with a copy of my new album “The Light In Da’ Addict” first, which is available now for free downloading. This time around I went the route of a concept album centered around the world of porn addiction and addiction as a whole. Much like the last project its filled with creative rhymes, humor, concepts, stories and my signature sampled based production. It should definitely have the net buzzing this summer. Its already receiving very strong early reviews from (calling it “one of the best albums of the year so far” along with a 9/10 rating) and Miles Raymer of The Chicago Reader.

Feel free to liberally post it on your site along with the cover and banner. You can also re-post “Where Da’ Sidewalk Ends” along side “The Light In Da Addict” being that its all apart of a 3 album series/collection (in sequence with the Shel Silverstein books). with the next album being “The Getting Tree” which will be released in December ’09.

“The Light In Da Addict” is available free for download at which is also the link you can post on your site.

If for some reason you have a problem here is an alternative link to “The Light In Da’ Addict”- although I prefer use of the first link for tracking purposes.

Also attached is a copy of the album cover, press release, bio, and promo photo

And if you slept on my last project from last summer/fall “Where Da Sidewalk Ends” feel free to post it you can click on the cover below:

Koncept feat Donny Goines & 6th Sense

On Day 4 of Brown Bag Season, we present to you a video of KONCEPT, Donny Goines & 6th Sense in the studio recording “Put Your Hands Together”


Lee Fields

RELEASE DATE: June 2nd 2009

+ Ladies
+ Money I$ King


PRESS RELEASE: Lee Fields is a bona-fide, 100%, unadulterated, pure, gut-bucket soul singer. While the crate-digging funk and soul community bestowed “legendary” status upon him due to his undeniably solid series of rare 7″ singles (and one LP) recorded and released on his own independent labels in the 70s, he’s never been one to sit in a dusty corner. New York label/production team Truth & Soul, are ready to bring him to light with a brand new album of beat-heavy, deep soul ballads that will show soul-revivalists the world over what real soul is.

After his rediscovery in the mid 90s, his faithful have featured him on a slew on singles, a full-length on Desco Records entitled “Let’s Get It On’, a full-length on Soul Fire entitled “Problems”, and on Sharon Jones’s critically acclaimed album, “Naturally”. Most recently, he has featured on a number of tracks by French house producer, Martin Solveig. Suprisingly, many of of those songs have become top ten hits for Solveig and have turned Lee Fields into a bonafide celebrity in France and other parts of Europe. Yet, outside of a rabid cult following, his story remained untold in America.

When Truth & Soul rose from Soul Fire’s ashes in 2004, the first mission of label owners/producers Jeff Silverman and Leon Michels, was to record a sweet soul record that would be modeled after the near perfect formula that bands like The Moments, The Delfonics, and The Stylistics had created. But with a decidedly modern bent. The two producer/songwriters were perfect for the job, having dedicated their talents to the likes of Adele, Iggy Pop, Amy Winehouse alongside Just Blaze, Ghostface Killah and Jay Z

Turning their attention to Lee Fields, the duo wanted an album full of music that was both tough as nails and sweet as honey. They wanted ballads laced with lush strings and smooth vocal harmonies layered over a hard-hitting rhythm section. Michels and Silverman enlisted the service of a the group of New York studio musicians that have provided the back drop for records by The Dap Kings, Amy Winehouse, Bronx River Parkway, El Michels Affair and TV on The Radio. Those musicians include Leon Michels, Homer Steinweiss, Quincy Bright, Nick Movshon, Thomas Brenneck, Toby Pazner, Aaron Johnson, Dave Guy, Michael Leonhart, and members of legendary doo-wop group, The Del-Larks.

Four years later and Lee Fields & The Expressions have successfully created a unique and personal sound that can hold court with the bands they set out to emulate. However, what they’ve created in the process goes beyond just a carbon copy of a sweet soul music from the 60′s and early 70′s. The formula has remained the same but the style has been adapted for the ears of youngsters whose experiences with soul began with Amy, not Al, Otis and Marvin. Thirty years of retrospection has colored this cross-generational melding of the minds. It sounds odd on paper, but the results are classic: hip hop-reared record collectors come full circle to produce an album of beautiful soul music with one of the progenitors who made it all possible.

Sandpeople – Money Is On The Mind

The Song: Money Is On The Mind

Being part of a hip-hop crew comes with benefits – never get lonely on the road, never run out of song ideas, the more the merrier, right? Sure, right up until show money and royalty checks need to get split. So Sandpeople, a 10-member hip-hop collective repping Portland, Oregon, have a lot of mouths to feed, and just like Wu needed C.R.E.A.M. back in ’93, in 2009, Sandpeople are in pursuit of that almighty greenback with “Money On Their Minds,” from Long Story, Short… the Pacific Northwest collective’s new studio EP.

Over a slick vocal sample, hard drums, guitar loops, and synth stabs courtesy of producer/rapper, Sapient, crew members Al-One, Ethic, Mo-B, Sapient, Gold, and Onlyone trade tales about the struggle, hustle, and hopes of an independent artist. Highlighting his own grind and aspirations, Ethic raps, “We gotta hustle strong ’till the customer’s gone/ ‘Till the rented van turns into a bus that we’re on/ And independent plans turns all of us into dons/ ‘Cause the business plan holds up just as much as the song does Yeah, it’s all love/ But it’s all from our own pockets, and we can’t eat off a small buzz.” While the jury is still out on the success of that business plan, the verdict on the song is in – Sandpeople have a great one on their hands with “Money Is On Their Minds.”

Finale – Issues

The Song: Issues

The latest track from Finale’s debut album A Pipe Dream & A Promise, “Issues,” traces the difficulties of growing up in a less than ideal situation and doing what you have to do to make the best of it. Supported by the electronic beat of Swiss producer Dimlite, Finale spits verses of true stories about those who have had to face adversity in their life. Finale offered this explanation of the track: “When I got the beat, Dimlite just sent me the drums and I wrote it within an hour. I thought of the craziest and most real stories. I think rappers forget to show the moral of the story. I think they are so used to telling the outlandish, most gangsteriffic crap, they forget to tell the stories that people can relate to, like teen pregnancy, like my mom was 15 when she had me.”

The song wraps up with a monologue by Prince Whip-A-Whip, a Bronx native rapper and former member of the Cold Crush Brothers, who reminds us of the underlying passion, substance, and self-expression that marked the experience of the early days of hip-hop in the Bronx.

A Pipe Dream And A Promise is now available everywhere.
