If there's anyone giving DJ's a run for their money, it's this kid right here. He is the official DJ for Goonie J and certainly a valuable member of the Goodlife Music Group. DJ Damnage has been doing his thing since he was 13 and at the young age of 16 he's already fuckin' up your relationships (I love that tag line). Damnage is currently the #6 DJ in Tampa Bay, Florida and need I repeat? He's 16. So all you DJ's need to step ya game up, f'real. Check out his new mixtape Dubsacks & Applejacks available for download at the link below. Hurry up and be 18 so you can come home to the Chi, bro.

It's not New Music Monday or Video Wednesday (I really gotta come up with better feature names) but I had to post this up. In a male dominated hip-hop industry, female artists that catch my eardrums are too few and far in between. I was first put on to this artist by a friend of mine and since then, I've been hooked. I believe he referred to it as "immaculate hip-hop" and I wholeheartedly agree. Signif is an NYC based rapper but born and bred in the Midwest (heeeey). Her flows are smooth and her lyrics are poetic. Nothing short of raw and true hip-hop at it's finest. I look forward to hearing more from her and other dope female artists -- who seriously need to come out of the woodwork. I know you chicas are out there.
Check out Signif's video: Lovely Imperfections
The Transition and Beautifully Flawed are available for free download here.

"A video could never replace a live show..." I completely agree. I love chillin' with the headphones blasting my eardrums but hip-hop sounds so good when it's spitting right in your face. The beats comin so hard through the speakers that it takes over your heartbeat combined with the vibe of a hip-hop show crowd is almost soul shattering.

Jus' Sam: I got something for you for New Music Monday
Marie: Whatcha got? AV Club or Jus Sam?
Jus' Sam: AV, that juke song.
And what a juke song. We're kicking off this week with a new one from AV Club called Hotbox. I don't know whether to spark up or pop that back. If I could do both simultaneously, can I put that on a resume? Anyway, stay tuned for more from DJ Dysfunktion and Jus' Sam's AV Club
Speaking of AV Club, DJ Dysfunktion just posted a new one: This Is avaliable on his SoundCloud: http://soundcloud.com/dj-dysfunktion

So umm, Happy New Year, everyone! We were going to go on break this week which explains the skipping of New Music Monday (mmhmm). But I just couldn't help posting the first Video Wednesday. If you'd like your own video to be featured on our blog, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep in mind, it doesn't necessarily have to be a music video. It could be videos you took of live shows or if you do video logs, we might take some of those too.. etc, etc... you get the point. Enjoy:
The beautiful Miss Isis Rose
And just for extra Chicago love and representation:
Remixes of of Wiz Khalifa's Black & Yellow
