On the next episode of the Headwarmaz Show

Greetings to the Headwarmaz family. I surely hope that the week has been kind to you because the weather surely has not.  Tonight’s episode of the headwarmaz is going to be filled with goodies for those of you with an alternative ear.

Slowly but surely we are picking up speed when it comes to representing the other forms of expression in hip hop. So  today we have special features for all those who are producers, and all those who are poets.

Word is Bond

Many spoken word artists come and go. However, there is a voice that has been resonating in our ears for the longest time. Saul Williams, the New York born slam poet has been doing the rounds since 1996. His hard hitting verses have seen him starred in the film, Slam, released in 1998. The movie won some important independent awards and gained critical acclaim in the underground scene. This catapulted Saul Williams’ career and he started working with artists such as: Nas, The Fugees, Blackalicious, Erykah Badu, KRS-ONE, and De la Soul.

In 2003 he came to South Africa to perform in the Urban Voices International Poetry Festival.

Tonight we will venture into the world of Saul Williams.


The Lab

There is only one producer who can claim to be the 9th Wonder of the world and get away with it. 9th Wonder came into us accompanying Little Brother. The Listening was applauded for it’s brilliant production, and opened to the door for 9th Wonder to work with the likes of Nas, Mary J Blige, Jean Grae, Murs, Jay Z, Buckshot and, believe it or not, Destiny’s Child. Nuff said…

If you are (or if you know) a local producer who is putting in lots of work and is willing to be interviewed on the radio, please get at us on headwarmaz@gmail.com.

Headz on da spot

Tonight we will be bringing you a cat from Durban who goes by the name, Farm Boy. This will be as much of a trip for us, as it is for you…

There will be more music for you ear tonight as well. We will be featuring some of the best on the home-grown scene. You really do not want to miss out on this episode of the headwarmaz show.

There is lots happening around Cape Town in the next couple of weekends. So stay tuned and don’t get left behind. Bush Radio, 89.5fm (www.bushradio.co.za), @ 22h00

Beef is the hip hop term for a feud or a rivalry between two or more rappers. The main aim of beef is to make your foe look bad or at least worse off than you. Beef is not a friendly sparring session where two artists may record a track to try and see who has more skill. Beef is not a freestyle battle where the winner is judged by the dexterity of delivery and how pernicious their punch lines are.  No. Beef is prolonged rivalry where slander is the order of the day.

 

The most common weapon available to artists engaged in beef is the ‘diss song’ (disrespect song). This is when an artist will record songs with the sole intention to libel their rival. Multiple songs may be recorded where the insults will go back and forth and this tennis match will only end when one of the contenders gives up.

 

The press and other public platforms usually serve as an arena where beef continues ‘outside the ring’. One rival will start humiliating rumours or reveal personal information about the other artist.

 

Although some may consider beef to be a healthy competition that generates publicity (and sales) for the parties involved, we have seen in the past that the results may not always be desirable. These rivalries can sometimes lead to violence and death.

 

In South Africa we have been fortunate not to have beef reaching lethal levels. However we have witnessed violent situations at various gatherings where beef has trickled onto our dance floors where punches fly along with the blood from the instigators and victims.

 

The most famous beef of our time was surely the rivalry between Bad Boy Records and Death Row Records during the mid ‘90s. The deaths of the biggest names in hip hop at the time, 2Pac and the Notorious B.I.G, are attributed to this beef.

 

However one of the most publicized beef of our time is between Jay Z and Nas. This is a typical example of how beef starts and resolves. The article below contains excerpts from Wikepedia purely for your reading pleasure.

 

Initially, the relationship between the two rappers was friendly and  respectfu. There were stories about how the two rappers used to hang out and how their families knew each other.Their relationship changed  after the death of The Notorious B.I.G. The position of ‘most popular New York rapper’ became vacant. Fans were eager to see who would fill that role. This is when the competition between the two started and ultimately turned nasty.



In 1996, while recording his debut album Reasonable Doubt, Jay-Z's producer Ski used a vocal sample from Nas' The World Is Yours as the chorus to his song Dead Presidents. Nas was offended by this because no one had asked for his permission. However, Jay-Z invited Nas to re-rap the line. When Nas agreed to this Jay-Z was happy, but Nas never showed up to record the line. After being stood up several times, Jay-Z became angry. This soured the relationship between the two rappers and is seen as the beginning of the quarrel between them.



Nas also stood Jay-Z up on a second occasion. After releasing his second album Nas a**embled The Firm with AZ, Foxy Brown, and Cormega (later Nature), and planned to release their debut album on Roc-A-Fella Records but later decided to sign with Aftermath without telling Jay-Z .



Jay-Z continued to show his respect to Nas in 1997 by referencing him on his song "Where I'm From" ("Who's the best MCs? Biggie, Jay-Z, and Nas"). Nas responded to Jay-Z on his track "We Will Survive" (released in 1999, on his album I Am…). On the song, Nas criticized several rappers, including Jay-Z, who claimed to be "New York's King" following Biggie's death. This was seen as disrespectful by Jay-Z, and was the spark that finally kicked off the feud. Also around this time, Nas and Memphis Bleek, who was also under Jay-Z's Roc-a-fella Records label were beefing as well.

The tension between the pair surfaced on their next releases, as each included aggressive songs entitled "Come Get Me", and various verbal jabs were thrown during subsequent mixtape appearances. The beef bubbled over into the public eye when Jay-Z mocked Nas's Queensbridge, Queens allies Mobb Deep on stage at the Hot 97 Summer Jam hip hop festival, reciting the opening verse to "Takeover", which ended with the line, Ask Nas, he don't want it with Hov.



Nas responded with an attack on Jay-Z during a radio freestyle over Eric B. & Rakim's "Paid In Full" beat, dissing most of the R.O.C. members subliminally — specifically, Jay-Z, Freeway, Memphis Bleek, and Beanie Sigel. Initially, the freestyle was untitled but was later called "Stillmatic", perhaps aimed to promote his new album Stillmatic (It is also called "H To The Omo" as a direct reference to Jay-Z's song "Izzo (H.O.V.A.)"). This freestyle contained the rhyme "Is he H to the izzo, M to the izzo? / Fashizzle, you phonie, the rapper version of Sisqo", some even claiming "it was that short, but it touched the nerve."



Almost immediately, Jay-Z composed a re-written version of "Takeover" for the The Blueprint, on which he added a verse (the song originally only addressed Prodigy of Mobb Deep), which had 32 lines (while the other verses had 16) that attacked Nas for never matching the critical success of his debut Illmatic. He rapped these lines towards Nas:



"Use your - BRAAAAAAAIN! You said you been in this ten

I've been in it five - smarten up Nas

Four albums in ten years nigga? I can divide

That's one every let's say two, two of them shits was due

One was - Ehh, the other was "Illmatic"

That's a one hot album every ten year average

And that's so - LAAAAAAAME! Nigga switch up your flow

Your shit is garbage- what, you tryna kick knowledge (f*** outa here)"



This is the first direct diss track toward Nas and it contains the lyric: "you-know-who/did you-know-what/with you-know-who/But lets keep that between me and you (for now)." Later on, both Jay-Z and Nas stated that this line is in reference to Jay-Z sleeping with Carmen Bryan.



Nas responded with a greatly acclaimed track entitled "Ether" from his album Stillmatic, in which he mocked Jay-Z's early years as an aspiring young rapper (during which he supposedly idolized Nas) and accused him of being a misogynist. He also explained how Jay-Z exploited The Notorious B.I.G.'s legacy by stealing his lyrics and claiming that he is a better artist. "Ether" begins with the sound of gun shots sampled from "Who Shot Ya" and contains a Screwed vocal sample by Tupac Shakur from "f*** Friendz" where he says "f*** Jay-Z" and Nas himself mocks Jay-Z's line "I will not lose" from "U Don't Know". He derisively points out that Eminem showed him up on his own album, alluding to the song "Renegade". Nas claims that "The King is back (ill) / where the crown at? (ill will)", claiming that he is the true recipient of the throne after Notorious B.I.G. The song also made fun of Jay-Z's very limited physical attractiveness and implied he was a homosexual, reffering to him as Gay-Z, "Put it together, I rock hoes. You rock fellas."



The positive response to "Ether" created enormous interest in the rivalry throughout the hip hop community, the music media and even mainstream news outlets. Jay-Z responded to "Ether" in a radio freestyle that became known as "Supa Ugly". The first verse of the song is delivered over a sample of Nas' "Got Ur Self A...," when Jay-Z claims " I got myself a gun". In the song, Jay-Z dismisses the "Ether" track as being filled with falsehoods and questions Nas' street credibility. The beat of the song then switches up to Dr. Dre's "Bad Intentions", which Jay-Z alluded to an ongoing sexual relationship with Carmen Bryan, the mother of Nas' child. The song also alleges that Bryan also had a relationship with Allen Iverson:



Me and the boy A.I. got more in common

Than just ballin and rhymin, get it? More in Carmen

I came in your Bentley backseat, Skeeted in your Jeep, left condoms on your babyseat

Here, nigga, the gloves is off, The love is done

Its whatever, whenever, however nigga, ONE!

And since you infatuated with sayin that gay shit

Guess you was kissin my dick when you was kissin that bitch

Nasty shit, you thought I was bonin' Renette

You callin' Carm a hundred times I was bonin her neck

You got a baby by the broad, you can't disown her yet

When is your lies end, when does the truth begin

When is reality set in, or does it not matter

Gotta hurt, I'm your baby mama's favorite rapper

And ask your current girl, she know wa**ap

Holla at a real nigga, Jigga, I don't give a f***



Jay-Z's mother heard the song on the radio and demanded Jay-Z publicly apologize to Nas and his family, to which Jay-Z oblige. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Jay-Z claimed that mentioning his relationship with Bryan was fair game when Nas implied Jay-Z was gay in "Ether". The feud continued to simmer, and rumors of a live pay-per-view freestyle battle began to circulate but never came to fruition.



After the promoters of Hot 97's Summer Jam festival refused to allow headlining Nas to crucify an effigy of Jay-Z during his performance at 2002's show, he appeared on Hot 97's rival Power 105 and attacked both the music industry's control over hip hop and the rappers who he saw as submitting to it, including Jay-Z, Nelly, N.O.R.E. and Jay-Z's label mate Cam'ron: "Y'all brothers gotta start rapping about something that's real.... Rappers are slaves." This brought Cam'ron into the Jay-Z/Nas feud; Cam'ron controversially made disparaging remarks about Nas' mother.



After this incident both continued to go against one another on various tracks, the shots taken including Jay-Z criticizing Nas for his apparent hypocrisy on his The Blueprint²: The Gift & the Curse album's title track. On "Blueprint 2," Jay begins his diss against Nas in the second verse by attacking his street credibility. Jay also says that while he himself is more successful, he is more generous than Nas with his money. Jay goes on to mock Nas's spiritual persona from Stillmatic and after accusing Nas of using both this appearance and convoluted lyrics in an attempt to appear more intelligent than he is:



Cause the nigga wear a kufi, it don't mean that he bright

Cause you don't understand him it don't mean that he nice

It just means you don't understand all the bullshit that he write

Is it "Oochie Wally Wally" or is it "One Mic"?



In the lines immediately after, he also accuses Nas of hypocrisy for putting out commercial/materialistic-oriented tracks and then denouncing materialism and misogyny on other songs. Jay-Z also says, "My momma can't save you this time / Niggas is history" referencing the public apology his mother made him make after "Supa Ugly" was released. However, Jay-Z raps on a verse saying that he became stronger after "Ether”



Meanwhile, Nas compared himself and Jay-Z to the characters Tony Montana and Manolo respectively from the film Scarface, on his track "Last Real Nigga Alive" from his God's Son album. That track detailed how Jay-Z forced Nas into battling him by attacking him while he was raising his daughter, and caring for his dying mother. However, the feud died down somewhat toward the end of 2002.



Jay-Z also made reference to his relationship with Carmen on the songs 'Is That Ur Chick' and "D'evils". This could also be counted as a diss record towards Nas.



Debate continues in the hip hop community about who came out on top in the feud. On December 14, 2001, "Ether" and "Supa Ugly" were pitted against each on a Hot 97 radio phone-in poll, with fans calling in to vote for the winner. Nas's Ether defeated Jay-Z's Supa Ugly 52% to 48%.After the release of The Black Album, both Nas and Jay-Z paid tribute to each other in interviews. The rivalry also aided their careers critically and commercially. The battle was significant in that it revived the trend of using ‘beefs’ as a source for publicity and promotion for hip hop artists, which became unpopular following the tragic deaths of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, but once again prevalent within the hip hop community.



In what can be considered a pivotal moment in hip hop history, the feud was formally ended in October 2005 at Jay-Z's I Declare War concert, where Nas made a special guest appearance and performed the hook to "Dead Presidents" and a few of his own tracks such as "NY State of Mind" and "Hate Me Now". In 2005 at another 105.1 concert Jay and Nas reunited on stage and performed a song together.



In January 2006, Nas signed with at the time Jay-Z's Def Jam Recordings, further emphasizing the truce and raising expectations for a possible collaboration.

Nas and Jay-Z are now business partners and they have toured, recorded and appeared on television and radio together throughout 2006. Jay-Z appeared on Nas' album Hip Hop Is Dead which was released under Nas' new partnership with Def Jam. The track is titled "Black Republican". Nas also appeared on Jay-Z's 2007 album American Gangster on a track titled "Success". Nas is also noticeable in the music video for the song "Roc Boys" from Jay-Z's album American Gangster. The two rappers appeared together on a track titled "I Do It For Hip Hop" with Ludacris for his release Theater Of The Mind. Nas later appeared as a guest on Jay-Z's The Blueprint 3 album.

On the second part of Headz on da spot we will be speaking to Impozstah, the Illest MC on the roster.

Below is a biography of the man himself.

Impozstah “The illest MC on the roster. With Ve’bhal Misael, resistance to my style is futile! I been rhyming for a while. It’s been a thousand miles, in this journey of mine!”

He was born in Orlando West, Soweto, JHB. His artistry reaches all the way down to Cape Town. He’s been rhyming since the days of Voice of Soweto, Reality, Metropolis (Le Club), i.e. before this commercial nonsense that’s befallen our art. Who is impozstah? Impozstah is a new-age, hybrid MC who falls into the ‘NO categories’ category. Rapping in English, French, Tsotsi taal (a mixture Afrikaans, Zulu, Sotho, Swahili and English born in the townships and ghettoes of South Afrika) he is a truly multi-faceted character. He has a social conscience, a strong advocate for the Afrikan continent and his beliefs can best be described as ‘live outside your box’. Why impozstah is Impozstah exists to change the ways of thinking of the world, one person at a time. He touches on universal issues like climate change, xenophobia, the state of hip hop and other relevant matters of social interaction. Having said all this, he still possesses attitude that has come to typify “The MC”! This MC believes strongly in keeping messages fresh, meaning that many of the issues he touches on are well-known and well-documented; he has chosen to “dopefy” the messages (make them dope) so that much younger audiences are reached. This is critical, his music addresses issues that the youth of the world can relate to and do something about. Yet at the same time the words themselves, the metaphors and the language usages are universal, meaning that the message goes even deeper than into the consciousnesses of the youth. His ambition is to change the collective thinking of the world! One person at a time… the illest mc on the roster. The new EP is called ACT ONE:“L’amélioration”(EP).

So remember to turn your radio on this friday night at 22h00 for 2 hours of explosive hip hop entertainment. If you are outside Cape Town, all you need to do is log on to www.bushradio.co.za

AG Wire / Jay Z’s “D.O.A.” fail
« on: August 12, 2009, 02:53:52 AM »

Hot on the hip hop circuit is Jay Z’s,  Prelude to Blueprint 3. On this appetiser is a track called D.O.A (Death of Autotune) where Jay Z calls for the death of the excessively used audio software program Auto-Tune.
However it seems that no one has heeded the hip hop veteran’s call.

Antares Audio Technologies, the company that created Auto-Tune, revealed to the New York Times that sales of Auto-Tune have in fact increased since the release of Jay Z’s “D.O.A.”.

Originally created to correct a singer’s pitch, Auto-Tune was made popular by singers like Cher (Love after love), Sonique( Feels so good), and locally Brenda Fa**ie (Yizo Yizo). The program attracted the attention of hip hop and R&B producers and has become a regular feature in the arsenal of artists such as Lil Wayne, Kanye, and T-Pain.
Although Jigga has urged artists to halt the fad, it seems that the artists who have benefited from Auto-tune are more than reluctant to put it away just yet.

AG Wire / Oprah sing praises for Jay Z
« on: August 12, 2009, 02:52:34 AM »
On August 9 the multibillionaire and world revered talk show host , Oprah Winfrey, was given a tour of Brooklyn by the mutlimillionaire hip hop mogul, Jay Z.

The tour included visits to Brooklyn’s ‘hip hop relevant’ parts and Jay’s own Marcy neighbourhood.

During the course of the tour Jay Z and Oprah had lenghty discussions afterwhich Oprah praised the intelligence and charisma of the New York rapper.

One should remember that Oprah has not been the best of friends with some of USA’s hip hop icons. This list includes the likes of Ludacris and 50 cent. This tension came about when Oprah expressed her views on  hip hop and named these artists as part of the negative influences.

However it seems that an hour in a meeting with Jay Z left Oprah almost smitten by the rapper. Although she maintained that she still had problems with his music, she was taken aback by his charm, intelligence and pleasant scent.

She expressed her wish for Jay to ensure that his intelligence be everpresent in his music.


Currently the Prelude to Blueprint 3 has been in circulation with songs such as Brooklyn (go hard) and D.O.A (Death of Autotune) serving as good appetisers for Jay Z fans who are in poised anticipation. The Blueprint 3 is due to be released on September 11, 2009.

Can we mend lack of women support in hip hop?

Once again it is that time of the year where everyone comes to the fore with their messages for the women of South Africa. The messages usually center around the themes of sympathising the plight of women in South Africa or encouraging a stronger approach to women's integration into areas of society where males have dominated not out of necessity but out of prejudice against women in the past.

This active drive to enhance the visibility of women in the goverment and business sectors has bore fruit, but more steps need to be taken. However the plight of the everyday women, mother or girl child is still having to face the difficulties that society will have them go through...usually because of societal expectations.

It is with greater sadness that I look at the hip hop movement and see that gender transformation is moving slower than snail-pace. Hip hop still seems fulfil the need for many males to dispense their testorone. Hip hop still serves as a space for heads to expand the male egos without being challenged.

I find it strange that a movement that prides itself with having revolutionary intentions and social commentary/social change as its modus operandi can turn around and snub the women who are eagerly knocking at its doors.

There have been few female icons in South African hip hop over the years. Up to this day it comes as a surprise to find a woman competing on the same level as her male counterparts. This is not due to lack of skill, but due the fact that women endure active (or unintentional) discouragement, by hip hop practioners, when they try to improve their art or establish themselves in the system.

Even now, Godessa is probably the most recognisable feminine presence in the hip hop scene. Godessa have been manoevered themselves to that position (with great difficulty) over a period of more than 10 years. So many others have tried over this same period to enter the inner circles of the hip hop scene. However they find themselves hitting brick walls because hip hop has already dictated their roles.... The options that seem to be readily available are: Consumer, spoken word poet, singer(especially on choruses), video 'chicks'(this would need another discussion to unpack) or at the very least they will be annointed as groupies.

There are very few women who are allowed to roll witht the crowd, make albums, and this usually requires effort that is at least twice the effort that their male counterparts are required to put in.

I do not wish to make any recommendations on how this problem can be tackled. I will have to rely on the collective consciousness of the movement i've grown to love and call 'home' to be able to rectify the way things stand.

Media / On the next episode of Tha Headwarmaz... (24 April 2009)
« on: April 24, 2009, 04:06:10 PM »
Tonight on Tha Headwarmaz (24 April 2009)

All the naysayers must be feeling so foolish. It seems that the healing process within hip hop has started…and the predictions of it’s death are nothing more than failed Nastradumsism (don’t check the dictionary)…

There are more than 10 gigs and parties happening in the next 3 weeks in Cape Town alone. The theme song to the Headwarmaz states…”Hip hop’s not dead. It just buried alive. It lost consciousness but we let it survive”.  We rest our case.

On the headwarmaz tonight…

We remind all our listeners to vote on the 22nd April 2009 at your nearest voting station. Take the initiative and your future is literally in YOUR OWN HANDS.

Sounds kinda like: We catch the ever politically Dead Prez having some fun, by rocking to an aaliyah beat? Watch them flip the script on a couple more commercially viable instrumentals


The lab: It is unfortunate that many people receive their due acknowledgement (or props) when they are no longer living. This is most evident with J Dilla. His early departure hit hard and gave rise to a cult-like movement celebrating his life and his works. We kick of this series of the lab by reliving some of the greater moments of J Dilla musical journey. Respect the architect.


Poetry of living: We kick of the series by exhibiting some of the works of the better known poets of our time. Remember to keep an eye on, the poetry of living during the course of the year, as we give young and talented poets their time to shine. And of course we’ll revisit our heritage when we speak to the local legends of poetry.

Hot music galore will be coming for sure!!!

So catch today’s episode of the Headwarmaz from 22h00 till 00h00 on bush radio 89.5 fm ( or log on to www.bushradio.co.za)

To participate in the show is simple… call 0214486266, or sms us on 31258 (sms will cost only R1)

Hehehehehehe....

The first time we've stepped into the studio in 2009 and it was as crazy as if we'd never left. Phurah the King was there with this extraordinary comments and slogans. Of course this week he was going on about making that "arab money"... and asking everyone "don't you be my vocalist"!

The other usual suspect Wanda aka original wanda of the world aka one hit wanda...was in the studio too.

Zwayi, the newer voice was up in the studio. Shy at first, his head warmed really fast end by the end of the show...he was fully fledged in art Headwarming.

This is what got played...
