KREAYSHAWN ("Gucci Gucci") to Direct Chili Peppers' Music Video


"Young KREAYSHAWN came up in the Bay [Oakland, CA]. Inspired by art and snatching bitches. You can't fathom what I'm doing. I'm out in L.A now. Gettin' a tan and putting my Trap hand down for once." @ Facebook Bio
Natassia Zolot, AKA: KREAYSHAWN ("creation?") is a 21-year-old UC Berkley film-student turned music video director/rapper. "#BASED GODDESS" has directed past videos for the likes of Lil B #BASEDGOD, Soulja Boy, and Stalker. Zolot is also a member of White Girl Mob - Along with V-Nasty and [twin sister?] DJ Lil Debbie.

MTVNews reports that KREAYSHAWN is in fact preparing to venture away from her comfort zone (Bay Area rappers). As she's gearing up to direct the upcoming Red Hot Chili Peppers video single - "The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie" from their new record, I'm with You (August 30). Zolot rose to fame when she released the "Gucci Gucci" music video back in May; Shot on the fly, it's ended up drawing in 3 million+ YouTube views! An imminent "Label Battle" quickly ensued and KREAYSHAWN eventually ended up signing to Columbia. Her still-untitled major label debut is soon TBR. Head on over to kreayshawn.com to pick up #BASEDGODDESS' most recent single, "Rich Whores", in exchange for an email address.

Dj Cold Cut & DJ Dragon Smasher Mash-up Run The Jewels & Run-D.M.C. Classics On Run The DMC; Plus New RTJ4 Singles (Pig Food Records)

Honestly, at this point in time, Run The Jewels (RTJ) should require absolutely no introduction... but, just to be safe, here's a brief/obligatory introduction: RTJ consists of rapper/producer and Definitive "Def" Jux co-founder El-P and emcee and OutKast affiliate Killer Mike . Legend has it, El & Mike first met on the set of Mr. Muthaf**kin' eXquire's "The Last Huzzah" (Remix) music video shoot. Soon after, [adult swim] Senior Vice President/Creative Director Jason DeMarco—then, at Williams Street Records—connected Killer Mike with El-P , who would produce his phenomenal 2012 album, R.A.P. Music. Mike , additionally, appeared alongside El on his own 2012 Fat Possum Records album, Cancer 4 Cure, on stand-out track, "Tougher Colder Killer." R.A.P. Music & Cancer 4 Cure were released weeks apart, so fast friends Killer Mike & El-P decided to tour together behind their then-new albums. After the widespread success of said tou

Members of Refused, Minor Threat, The Faith & Girls Against Boys Join Forces to Form Fake Names & Share "Brick" Single (Epitaph Records)

Fake Names is a Punk/Hardcore super-group consisting of vocalist Dennis Lyxzén (Refused, INVSN, SAMURAI,) guitarist/vocalist Brian Baker (Minor Threat, Bad Religion, Dag Nasty,) second lead guitarist/vocalist Michael Hampton (Embrace, The Faith, S.O.A.) bassist Johnny Temple (Girls Against Boys, Soulside, New Wet Kojak,) and, sometimes, drummer Matt Schulz (SAVAK, Holy F*ck, Enon.) "I'm in a new band with some friends from elementary school(!) and a sharp-dressed revolutionary from Sweden," Brian Baker (@brianbakers) posted on Instagram Wednesday morning; of course, referring to Hampton, Temple, and Lyxzén, respectively. Again, it appears as though Schulz is a part-time members of Fake Names , having played live with the band in their early aughts, although, their newly-launched website adds, " Matt [Schulz] played the drums. No synthesizers," within, what appears to be, digital liner notes. Guitarists Brian Baker & Michael Hampton first started j

Guts of The Ice - An Exploration of "Puck" Rock/Hockey-core #4½: THE ZAMBONIS' Mascot The Hockey Monkey (B-A-N-A-N-A-S Q&A)

The Hockey Monkey with Storm & Sparky The Dragon (SOURCE: Matt Gonzalez) Not entirely unlike Wrestle/Wrassle Rap or Basketball Rap, there's, apparently, a whole sub-genre of hockey-themed Punk/Hardcore—oftentimes, referred to as "Puck" Rock or Hockey-core. Yes, I've been a die-hard fan of Punk/Hardcore for 15+ years and I, too, only first heard about Puck Rock within the last few weeks. Although, once I started diggin' around, I discovered about 10-15 bands at the forefront; this was, then, gradually narrowed down to 10 "front-line" bands, which will be chronicled here over the course of coming weeks. The "top-scoring" bands we selected include: Crippled Youth, SLAPSHOT, The Hanson Brothers/Nomeansno, Two Man Advantage, The Boils, D.O.A. THE ZAMBONIS, Pansy Division, The Hextalls, and The Ramoms' "Gritty Is A Punk" flexi-disc. We sent out a short 6-question interview form to all of the aforementioned bands, received some ba
