Feelin it

Reminiscent of a Swedish Nicki Minaj, Joy M'Batha is blowing away the Scandinavian rap-arena. About two months ago she came out with her latest release "Gladjeflickan", and has also recently been featured in many mainstream Swedish publications. But what's the buzz really about? Is it her funky choice in style, her darker past (very apparent in her lyrics) or could it be her flow - raw, real and rough? We can't wait to hear more from this new Swedish rap diva.

The 6th annual OVO fest

ovo-fest-2015-01

Claiming it was one of the biggest moments of his career, Drake turned last night's OVO Fest into a memorable one, to say the least: announcing Kanye West as one of his idols, dropping lines on Meek Mill, sharing the stage with Travis Scott (who stated he'd broken out of jail to make it there on time) and music connoisseur Pharrell. All in one night - perhaps what most artists try to squeeze into a year.

We can't wait to see what's up next in the career of this Toronto native sensation. And, with his newest recruitment, Roy Wood$, blasting on a Tuesday afternoon, all we can say is: keep it coming.

The Mode

tumblr_nlnxrcvLpH1rckvcho1_500 tumblr_nbkywgIVjj1rsis7jo1_500

The mode this week takes us back to where we started. Why do we do what we do? Choices and our determination amounting into opportunities have never been more crucial. If it were all easy we probably wouldn't even bother. Perhaps we give ourselves a challenge because we know we can exceed and even succeed. What else is there but right now? Check out the latest on streetracemusic.com :)

Sundays with city of the sun

I don't know about you, but to the SRP team, Sundays can have the most creative vibe to them, or they turn out to be dull days that never seem to end. To keep the beat going, this Sunday we are tuning into City of the Sun - three guys turning acoustic instrumentals into mesmerizing and inspiring melodies. Formed in NYC at the onset of the Twenty Tens, the instrumental trio has blazed a trail through NYC playing everywhere from street corners, to artist lofts, to galleries and traditional venues, to traveling the world for exclusive TEDx showcases. Scroll down to check out their latest track "Everything". tumblr_nd5t2yeNNX1ruyafno1_1280.png tumblr_ndsxcmRGkt1ruyafno1_1280 tumblr_ndsxcmRGkt1ruyafno2_1280 tumblr_nduxzpcP1C1ruyafno2_1280

Don't Stop Moving

It's so hot I get the chills! Check out the new promo video for one of StreetRacer Productions' latest beats, "Don't Stop Moving". California's Annex Magazine did a recent shoot for a campaign they were running with the very talented Pia Mia, which is what you are seeing in our promo. The video does however not replicate the original, it has a SRP twist to it! [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGSq3ff5nX8&w=420&h=315]

She's Back

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcN6Ke2V-rQ

She might be the first female artist to come out with the idea of a visual album. But the more you think about it, the more it seems to make sense. Don't we all associate the music that we hear with a memory, a feeling or a fantasy? StreetRacer Productions can't get enough of her fierce moves, creative visuals and sexy sound. And to think that this is only part one! This week we'll be getting down to some of our favorites; "Mine" ft. Drake, "Flawless" and "Ghost". Check out the previews for this fantastic and visually stimulating body of work on Beyoncé's very own website. What are you listening to today?

Summer Days Mixed with the Purple Haze

There is this amazing thing that happens when talent and creativity marries knowledge. An artist by the name of Tijon has recently recorded to a new fresh StreetRacer beat, in which he acknowledges the struggles of life, expressing himself through quick and fierce rhymes. The lyrics touch upon racism, alcoholism, success, money, death, poverty, you name it.. The intention seems to have been to write about the happy times, or times "bright like a summer day" as Tijon puts it, but when the pen touched the paper something else happened.. What happened? Take a listen and share your interpretation with us!

The Prince of Queens

Remember the Underrated Rapper Contest? StreetRacer Productions is proud to introduce you to the champion, concept rapper CJ Prince (@THECJPrince). With his smart lyrics and smooth style this prince has every intention to blow the Big Apple away. 

CJPrince3

Prince draws from his Queens influences of Nas and LL Cool J, taking his listeners on a story with each track. In a business where repetition is abundant, the Prince of Queens tries to think outside of the box and give the listeners a unique experience with each song.  

“My songs’ mean something and reflect my daily struggles whether it’s issue internally with myself, with my girlfriend or with my family.”

CJ recently christened the “Prince of Queens” release at the Static nightclub Astoria, New York. The guests of the event exert a vibe of excitement, New York is in for a surprise. July 16th (tomorrow!!!) "Prince of Queens" will be released on all major mix tape mediums; DatPiff, LiveMixtapes and HotNewHipHop. Keep your eyes on the look out and your ears alert for this fresh Underrated winner...

"Now I feel like a different rapper. It is a process and I feel I am getting better with each track and everyone is gonna see it July 16th.” 

CJPrince2

“ It doesn’t stop here we have so much more ready for the future. I am getting my flow down on tracks; I got new tracks lined up ready to be released. I am gaining popularity around Queens and New York but I want to take it bigger.”

"New New" by E Dott Valentine's Day Exclusive

What is love? " Love is temporary madness; it erupts like volcanos and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether our roots have to entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because that is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of eternal passion. That is just being in love, which any fool can do. Love itself is what is left over when being in love has burned away, and that is both an art and a fortunate accident.  Those that truly love have roots that grow toward each other underground, and when all the pretty blossoms have fallen from their branches, they find that they are one tree and not two. "

- Louis de Bernieres

StreetRacer Productions has the honor to present to you on this day of love...

Late Nights

A while back we featured rapper Damian Johnson on the blog with his mixtape, "Conscious for Currency". Today he is back with yet another hot mixtape, "Late Nights", which will be released January 31st on Datpiff.com, available for you to listen to and download for free! But let me first and foremost introduce you to the great Damian Johnson...

Could you tell us a little bit about your vision behind this upcoming mixtape?

" I wanted to open up a world where you can listen to music and take what you want from it. It’s a perfect blend of my inner thoughts and my secret fantasies. "

How would you describe the sound of your mixtape?

" I would consider it a fun hip-hop/ party sound. I love to challenge the mind and keep it working but at the same time make good music.  "

Where do you get most of your inspiration from?

" My mother has to be my biggest supporter. From advertising songs to coming to shows. She keeps me moving forward. "

What is your earliest music memory? Do you remember when you started rapping?

" It’s funny because I first started rapping when I was in the 6th grade and my friends would always tell me to shut up. It was one of the only things that I was passionate about. I got better and started making music that they even move to now. "

You've worked with Streetracers a bunch of times, how would you describe your experience collaborating with the producers?

" You can never have too much Streetracer! The best Production team I have ever worked with. They create new sounds that constantly keep you on your toes as an artist. I look forward to more collabs. "

What are your future goals?

" To create a brand of music that the world will recognize and keep making positive moves in life. At the end of the day, I want to read over my life’s story and be proud of each chapter. "

The Next Big Thing

Hey StreetRacer fans! I hope you are all enjoying the summer weather (if you're having any!) and that you keep listening to the incredible StreetRacer music that is simultaneously being produced. Every music producer's dream is to foresee the future of music, the next hot thing that everybody will be dancing to in the club and listening to on their ipod. Have you ever thought about it, the next big thing? Then again, maybe that is the beauty of it after all. Not being able to anticipate the future allows us to fight for now, eat, breath and sleep the music that is being created now. The present... What do you think people are going to be listening to a few months or years from now?
