“The king is dead, long live the king”
I guess it would be fitting to start with these words since I ended with it at BLNR. This is the start of something new, a brand new site with a fresh new team of writers. We could go on and on what you can expect but we’d rather show you, with a brand new tape fittingly titled The Introduction. So allow us to reintroduce ourselves..

Classic performance! Also nicely played in the movie Notorious. Me watching this footage makes me really wanting to be there at that time. Each time I play it, gives me the same goosebump kind of feeling and this scene pops up in my head.. Crazy!
Oh yeah almost forgot, most of us Dutch people have the rest of the week off due to National holidays, so:
Party and bullshit and party….
It’s still Sunday so technically I’m not late for this week’s Weektape right? I had a bit of trouble with this one. I had the clever idea to make a Weektape with new(ish) Rappers who are on point. But the deal with that is when is an artist new and when does that newness end? Struggled with it a bit till I thought fuck it.
The list consists of some artist who broke through between ’08’ and11 / ’12. So calling all the Rappers on the list new isn’t all that accurate but calling the Weektape New Kids On The Blog sounds awesome, so sue me.
“Record company people are shady.” Wise words from the Abstract.
Recently I’ve read an interesting article on HipHopIsRead.com, it’s an anonymous letter from a former employee of one of the more established company in the music industry. It’s a bit of a read but it’s definitely worth it, cause if true (which wouldn’t surprise me frankly) it’s quite frightening to see how fucked up the industry is. And how far some people go for money. As the title suggest its about a secret meeting that would influence the Rap game, real cloak a dagger stuff. Not even exaggerating check out a passage from the letter :
At this point, my industry colleague who had first opened the meeting took the floor again and answered our questions. He told us that since our employers had become silent investors in this prison business, it was now in their interest to make sure that these prisons remained filled. Our job would be to help make this happen by marketing music which promotes criminal behavior, rap being the music of choice. He assured us that this would be a great situation for us because rap music was becoming an increasingly profitable market for our companies, and as employee, we’d also be able to buy personal stocks in these prisons. Immediately, silence came over the room. You could have heard a pin drop. I remember looking around to make sure I wasn’t dreaming and saw half of the people with dropped jaws. My daze was interrupted when someone shouted, “Is this a f****** joke?”
