Da Buze Bruvaz

Tuesday, September 17th, 2013

​Not many indie hip-hop labels these days churn out as much vinyl as Chopped Herring.​ While sites like Sandboxautomatic, HipHopsite, Fat Beats and UGHH used to be the main spots to cop our vinyl, its now the DIY labels producing and pushing the wax these days. The art of collecting records has become fun once again thanks to great releases. Artists are still starving and with the help of new age technology and social media, sending and receiving music is almost too convenient.  Lost DATS, unreleased demos and lo-fi recordings are finding their way to our Tech 12’s with the help of labels like Chopped Herring, Dopefolks, DWG, No Sleep and Heavy Jewelz.

Most recently, CH put out a Da Buze Bruvas EP, a duo hailing from Philly, consisting of Him-LO and Clever One. Imagine the street knowledge of Beanie Sigel with the wit of Sean Price, and that is what you get with the Bruvas. I know I am not alone when I say hearing this kind of “gutter rap” in 2013 sounding polished, yet coarse at the same time is a thing of beauty. Da Buze Bruvaz have made me a believer again.  Read more about them in our discussion thread.

For the vinyl lovers out there, make sure you cop the Da Buze Bruvaz releases here.

Is Philly the 2nd most important city to Hip-Hop?

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

I’m just speaking for me, not the blog but I also believe it’s a very legit question too. When you put it down on paper and realize all of the Philly legends, microphone masters, turntable technicians, classics hits and summer anthems it’s an argument worth making.

Obviously, NYC is number one but when you think about how Philly changed the game and continues to deliver the top talent what city/state takes its spot? L.A? Atlanta? Jersey? Houston? Detroit? Think about it…

Here are just some (not complete) of some Philly representatives.

Schoolly D
Steady B
