I'll try to keep this short, you know that it's really tough for me to do that when I get excited about music.

This morning I sat down and no sooner had I taken a sip of my morning coffee (with Cask & Creme), the homie D said "Yo I just listened to that Tito Lopez freestyle 5 times on YouTube." Talking like I should already know who the hell he's speaking about.  "Tito Lopez?" I asked.  " Sounds like a delicious mexican beer", I thought.   Then he hit me with a link to the above video.

And this, my friends, is the very reason we even started The HoodHype Show five years ago.  There are so many incredible, lyrical, creative and passionate artists out there we rarely hear about unless you catch them in a random video in Dr. Dre's kitchen with Stat Quo.  This guy has a raw God given talent.  This is why I'll never get tired of listening to and supporting independent hip-hop, this is why I'll be doing what I do until I'm six feet under.

So thank you Tito Lopez.   You've just thrown fuel on the proverbial fire cousin. These made-for-radio acts have no idea what's comin.   It's artists like you are going to turn this God forsaken industry on it's head.  Like Dre said at the end, "The voice of the underdog, I like it"

Shouts to Mississippi and keep an eye out for his upcoming album The King's Speech.

At the Royal Oak Music Theater in Michigan. We have a BUNCH of footage from that night, here's a collection of clips. Eminem made a special appearance on the "2.0 Boys" song as they closed out the night. Great show... we'll be posting the rest of the footage very soon!

Also, our special episode we took on the road for this show.

Having trouble playing the audio? Click here to download the MP3.

Back off "the sickness" and we throw you all another curve ball as we run half the show in "the basement" and then we took it to the road as we headed to the Shady 2.0 show (we even snuck in a couple audio snippets from the show for you all).

Sorry for the delay guys.  Been taking a brief hiatus and some much needed RnR from the world to spend with the family. 

So I pop open the laptop, start browsing around and I wasn't greeted with this little gift.   Normally, myself as well with any other music fan would have said "yeah right" to Detox dropping this year.  But the fact that the Doc is now on record, audio and visual confirming it drops this year, he has no choice lol.  Should be pretty interesting considering half of the land of Aftermath's misfit rappers will be appearing on this album.

Very excited to check the album out, and you KNOW this is asking for a "Blend it or Bump it" segment of the show. (Although I doubt the blender will be winding up for this one)

Stay tuned, we'll be dropping Episode #110 of the show to share a great interview with Stat Quo and Detroit's own Danny Brown.

Stat and the entire "Aftermath Conglomerate" chillin out in the studio and screwin around.  Good to see Busta is still workin with the family over there.  It's kind of weird, its like Aftermath is like the kid with the crazy ass parents that don't like any of his friends.  Looks like the kid is still workin with his friends though lol.

If we we're on the air right now I'd play a sarcastic "wow we're amazingly shocked and didn't see this coming" sound effect.  Bishop explains the year-long "gag-order" handed down from Interscope along with the lawsuits that ensued from his label when "Grow Up" hit the airwaves as well as his (at the time) impending label doom and describes the feeling of finally being free from the shackles of the record industry's Amistad known as Interscope.

The music and radio industry truly has no fucking clue.  This is just amazing, and I'm actually really happy for Bishop, because we ALL knew (including him) that his album had about as much chance of dropping as Dre has releasing Detox.  Although, I'm sure there's a chance of that happening, if Jimmy Iovine isn't on the rag, it's a Tuesday, and nobody walks under a ladder, breaks a mirror, eats Chinese food or wears Adidas with fat laces after 3pm.

Anyway, congrats to you Bishop.  Maybe at some point you could decide to come back on the show and talk to us about it.  I hope this has no bearing on the "Caltroit 2" album.

New single from Bishop's upcoming street album "Team America: Fuck Yeah!"  Now I'm not a betting man but I'm willing to bet Tom Cruise did something to piss Bishop Lamont off.  This dude is a nut!

Bobby Creek
Sounds like Bobby Creek losing patience with his label....I hate this shit, this dude is one of the most lyrical artists Shady Records has left but like Bishop Lamont, they continue to shelve him for their flagship female friendly artists, regardless of the artistic relevance.  Shit I'd say "goodnight Shady" too, especially since you're makin your own buzz without their asses.  Props to Bobby Creek and Steve-O.

"See this game here is quite shady,
at some point I might have to say goodnight Shady,
at some point I might have to take a bow,
but not on they terms or mines I made a vow."

LISTEN: Bobby Creekwater - "Hello World"

Fuck the politics though, the track is hot.  Shouts to Bobby Creekwater and BGOV!

THE DAY IT ALL MADE $ENSE coming August 9th!
