EMPT Classics: Say Goodbye to Hollywood

No I’m not leaving LA but I was curating the music for a latin restaurant called Paladar Latin Kitchen this morning and I came across one of my al time favorite songs – La Fama by Hector Lavoe. The song is about Fame and all it’s complexities, a salsa classic. In this world, when you chase something […]

However, my boy Nate sent me an hilarious/amazing review by one of “Wu-Tangs elite” […]

Kevin Casey’s Sample Saturday – Gil Scott-Heron et Kanye West

On Friday afternoon, we lost one of the true originators of this thing called hip-hop.  Gil Scott-Heron was an accomplished poet, musician, and author, known mostly for his performances in spoken word during the 1970′s and 80′s.  The album pictured above, was in reality the first instance of the hip-hop genre in recorded fashion.  Over […]

Cris Cab – All of the Lights (Cover)

Cris Cabs cover of this song is the best one of heard thus far and I hate to say for all the Kanye fans but I like it better than the original. The production manages to blend elements of ska and modern hip hop to perfection and there’s enough bass to make the pavement crank […]
