“do_hiphop” is NOT a label. It’s hip hop in itself promoting whom we feel are the most influential artists of our time from all over the world who deserve to be heard by the masses. Founded in June 2010, “do hiphop” is a website creating awareness of causes created through forces beyond our control and willing the true hip hop listener and artist to believe that they are able to be the major contributing factor in changing people’s mind-sets and lifestyles for the better, not only with what they put out but also with whom they affect, collaborate with and change. “Ultimately it’s about what we put in”, says ThiNXx(a representative of do hiphop). “So many musicians out there get so wrapped up in their own world and how they’re going to make it that they forget about who’s listening and how much can be accomplished just through being conscious and creating awareness of something that whether they like it or not… Actually affects them… Things like poverty, disease & oppression affect us all, no matter how socially elite we think we are and it is our responsibility as human beings to do all we can to invoke change which we CAN do through our music”. Change starts the minute you invoke it! We choose to see beyond the hype… home is where the heart is. Join our movement;

Ancient Mith - Ciroc Shot Kool Herc

“Ciroc shot Kool Herc” – New Music Video from Ancient Mith – Out Now!!

Ancient Mith recently dropped his awesome new animated music video put together by Bryan Wade / Blueswade Cartoons!! Check it out here:


Here are a few words on the track / video from the videographer:
“Any real hip hop fan during the 80’s and 90’s can appreciate the juxtapose of hearing a rap song in the grocery store in present day. Even the thought of such mainstream acceptance, at the time, seemed light years away and the real life trajectory, most likely unforeseen by the biggest enthusiasts. Ciroc shot Kool Herc is an ode to what was, what is and what might have been, in the evolution of said circumstance. The song was inspired by reports of Kool Herc (credited as the creator of hip hop) falling on hard times coupled with celebrations of P. Diddy’s son receiving a full ride scholarship to college. While these two things are unrelated, they invoked questions about ageism, classism, and commercialization in the hip hop community and the greater market outside of it. What better way to bring this to the eyes than a motion comic capturing a colourful, fevered dream within a dream about a fictional confrontation over fortune and legacy between Kool Herc and P. Diddy. The animation style is intended to reinforce the dreaminess of the beat and lyrics. The idea of creating the video as a motion comic rather than a more traditional cartoon was to remove the slickness from the art, leaving it as organic and gritty feeling as possible. Crumpled paper and splattered ink are used to create a sense of something that’s been discarded and rediscovered, like a great old comic book that’s been found at a yard sale. ‘It’s my hope that the video comes across as a genuine love letter to the legacy of hip-hop and more immediately as a tribute to Ancient Mith’s words and music. This project has been one of challenge and discovery for me, and as a print cartoonist working in motion for the first time, really a great deal of fun.’ ” – Bryan Wade


This track is lifted from Ancient Mith’s album “And The Dead Shall Lie There” entiry produced by Matr and available via Dora Dorovitch Records right here:

B.Dolan just dropped his incredible new music video for his track “The Devil is Alive” directed by Adam J. Dunn!! The amount of thought and research that went into this track is completely awe-inspiring and the visuals compliment the message perfectly!!

“In 2012, B. DOLAN & BUDDY PEACE created “FILM THE POLICE,” a reworking of the N.W.A. classic “FUCK THE POLICE” that addressed citizens’ rights to film cops in the wake of the Oscar Grant shooting. The song caught fire during the wave of Occupy Wall St. protests that coincided with it’s release, developing a life of it’s own as a hashtag that traveled the world on the lips of protesters and activists resisting police brutality.
This year brings the release of HOUSE OF BEES 3, the latest in a series of mixtapes from B. Dolan & Buddy Peace, who have this time chosen to rework RICK ROSS and JAY-Z’s 2013 single “The Devil is A Lie” to tell the story of the real man behind a rapper’s name; that of drug kingpin “Freeway” Ricky Ross and his connection to the Iran-Contra scandal”.

HOUSE OF BEES VOL. 3 coming soon!!

Spacesuites

“Spacesuits” – LMNO, Moka Only & Mr. Brady – Brand New Self-Titled Album + “Speedy” – Music Video Out Now!

“Spacesuits”, the fresh new project from LMNO, Moka Only & Mr. Brady, produced by Jules Chaz is officially out today and you can grab yourself a copy right here!!!

“What happens when three veteran power houses LMNO from the mighty Visionaries crew, Moka Only with over 50 albums deep in the game, and musical work horse Mr Brady’s rawness let loose over madman producer extraordinaire Jules Chaz beats? You get the eagerly awaited project Spacesuits. Spacesuits came to light when Moka Only introduced Jules Chaz to Mr Brady a few years back via internet. Jules Chaz sent Mr Brady about 30 beats that He sat on trying to figure out what to do to them. “They were so raw, genius, and out of this world I wanted to approach them right,” Mr Brady said. One day LMNO came to record at Mr Brady’s studio, and he let him hear the beats. He flipped out and they immediately knocked out a couple of tracks that same day. After listening to them, they hit up Moka Only to do a feature for one of the tracks. The three of them sounded so good together, and they have so much history together from Battle Axe records in the past, it only made sense to asked Moka if he would be down to record the whole album with them. After all, Moka Only was the one to introduce them to Jules Chaz, so it made perfect sense. After listen to a few songs, and how out of this world they sounded, the name and the project Spacesuits took flight. There effortless cohesiveness is evident with Spacesuits. They bounce off one another, and jump in and verses like the veterans they are. Spacesuits shows their versatility and ability to adapt to Jules Chaz Zany production. With Spacesuits, Not only will you get raw lyrics and beats like the songs Speedy, and _meteor, but you will also get stories with songs like heist and _chicks, as well as a array of spaced out joints and interludes. So grab your moon boots and get ready for lift off because Spacesuits is ready to take off!”

Al'Tarba - Let the Ghosts Sing

“Let the Ghosts Sing” – Brand New Album from Al’Tarba + “Good Morning Rain” – New Official Music Video – Out Now!!!

Hey people!

I hope you are all doing well; I’m very please to announce that today, the one and only Al’Tarba releases his brand new and once again completely epic album, “Let the Ghosts Sing” and it’s officially available for purchase in a variety of format’s right here:
Adobe Photoshop PDFhttp://cd1d.com/en/album/let-the-ghosts-sing

“I had the opportunity to listen to the album over the weekend and once again I am completely taken back by the utterly awe inspiring production throughout the project. While maintaining the classic Al’Tarba feel this album is something completely fresh from the French multi-intrumentalist. The sound & feel of this album is exactly as the name say’s with a complete otherworldly eeriness that sticks with you throughout as well as beautiful analogue arrangements, classic instruments and samples to die for making this an undeniable must have for anyone who appreciates hip-hop instrumental music at its finest”.

Be sure to check out the music video for one of the tracks from the album, “Good Morning Rain”, right here:

“Let the Ghosts Sing could be the soundtrack for a Tim Burton movie, as we feel joy surrounded by death. Siberian Vengeance or Still Insomniac take us to a trip inside our own mind when Gangster & Rude Girls or My Vicious Side work as a carthasis, as we headbang our troubles away. That’s the strength of Al’Tarba and this opus, they bring us to an imaginary place where we face the nostalgia and spookiness of our childhood, while enjoying it as an adult”.

“Sami” – New Music Video from Nïats + “Antares” – New EP – Out Now!

Thought we could kick Monday off with something a little different…
Nïats just dropped this fresh new music video for his track “Sami”!!
Check it out here:
The track is lifted from his all new “Antares” EP available here:
Itunes > https://itunes.apple.com/fr/album/antares-ep/id922070353
Spotify > http://open.spotify.com/album/4kktpPBNWsgfkIlR4pJnYU
Deezer > http://www.deezer.com/album/8755917

“Nïats is musician and sound engineer, his music is inspired mainly by the world of movies, Fantasia, Coppola, David Lynch, Corto Maltese just to name few. He likes the blend of audio and visual. “Antares” is his first EP, its a blend of beats, sampling and composition that brings us into his multi-faceted imaginary universe.

Sometimes through ethereal soundscapes, sometimes thru heavy grooves he navigates in a universe of audio imagery”.


“Antares”  is beautifully weaved and put together, it navigates through mutiple styles and blends them, most of the time, well together.


Although this EP is quite different from what I usually listen to, I found that the blend of sounds and instrumentation very pleasing and did enjoy the project as a whole.
