Episode 11 HUL| The Art Of Sampling Part 2 With Stone Town

This is a mind-blowing episode; I put together questions for Stone Town aka Papa Stoney to answer on sampling, what came out is what we need you to listen to. Stone Town reveals a lot of information on the art form-Sampling, his favorite samples and informative details.He even went a head to drop a hint on what Payne Keelah is up to so far.   HE was objective as possible and i was surprised he is so  full of humor ( he has hip hop jokes I mean).

All songs that featured on this episode are purely inspired by samples or lets say are a product of sampling from Tucker HD- Ug on My Chest , S.T.R.A.P. , Keko-Bright Lights, and  Lyrical Proof-Kilasiku and Nabye Show. And when you hear TwaWambye  in a song you surely know thats Stone Town behind it

Episode 9|HUL- The Art of Sampling: Nase Avatar’s take

Nase Avatar is no stranger to the NuveyLIVE Pod-casts; this time round I hit him up to talk about a few things on what he has been doing and a number of interesting things going on. He is apparently listening to a lot of NTM, Gravitity and Mun G.Well S.T.R.A.P’s abstract sound, new releases from Nelly Sade, Flex D’Paper , the Telling My Story Project and  Sampling, which took up most of our conversation which was quiet informative as regards the insight gave us about sampling. Episode 9 has so much for you because you will get to know more like what exactly the Telling My Story project was about and the future of this initiative as revealed by Nase.

Tracks like Msinde, Kigozi, Kila siku and AJO’s Aphrodite which hasn’t yet been released took most of the samples conversation. This Episode will be a great study for most who don’t understand the art of sampling, what it means to sample and the great benefits of sampling. One interesting thing is that samples help us keep track of our Ugandan hip hop and music at large. And you will realize sampling is part of hip hop’s historical inventions made famous by Deejaying.

Apparently Nase says his best sampled track is Kila siku LP (prod Stone Town) and I was down for KigoziNavio and some of S.T.R.A.P’s music none the less you can leave a comment of what you think of this episode. You can also tell us your favorite track with the best samples in the comment section.

Episode 6|NuveyLIVE Podcast:HUL|Dual Hip Hop Ignorance & Weed smokin’ Rap + Beautiful day premier

On this episode which is highly unapologetic i discuss the  duality of ignorance in hip hop and what it costs us. The ill in formed ‘people’ will say what they want and how they want. They include the fans, the ‘I hate UG Hip Hop‘ type of individuals and the rappers themselves. Well you guessed right this on this episode non of them escapes! We can’t know everything but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have the need to know. Everyday we should learn something in order for barber shop discussions to flourish with informed domes. That said listening to this episode its only one question you should ponder about: How much of Ugandan hip hop do you know?

Everyday we should learn something in order for barber shop discussions to flourish with informed domes.

Those who know nothing about the genre will always stereo type any thing, be it poetry, spoken word and of course hip hop. Don’t be surprised when they limit the genre to sex, drugs, thug life  i mean people say anything and you know its pain full because a lot of creative work will be ignored.

The premier of Beautiful day Benny Black ft Essie closes this one Enjoy!

Episode 6 Description:

SHAWN get furious on every one who uses ignorance as an excuse and attacks the so-called ‘i don’t like the genre’ type of people who speak with an ill-informed mind. The rappers too who ignore the fifth element or rather one of the most important elements of hip hop. And so the premier of Beautiful day by Benny Black ft ESSIE is the melody to meditate on.

Episode 3 HUL|NuveyLIVE Podcast: Why rappers need side hustles

You might ask your self whether rappers do side hustles or not? If you are in the hip hop industry and working within it the question is easily answered with a LOUD “YES!” Some Hip Hop fans might not agree but all the same this episode will help answer that. Episode 3 is a follow up of our Weekly Podcast which is released every Tuesday. Last week I took you through the Importance of Hip Hop events and thanks to all those that downloaded and streamed.

I met Zenji, a friend of mine, a fan of our blog and podcast, a hip hop enthusiast last week. We incidentally met at this side hustle ( extra job or work) and he asked or to be honest tipped me to talk about side jobs that rappers do to support themselves. We where both at this place to do some work for an organization and his introspect was brilliant for me and i hope to host him one day.

Many rappers are in the corporate world one of them is Enygma, Young Nick and i think Sufuric too. The side hustle can be a main job you do and can earn you more than the genre and in fact supports you to pay for hip hop bill. A side hustle can help you support your music as regards rotation packaging and things that come in. Studio time, production costs come in as well.

This Episode is mainly for young rappers who need to know about why they need side hustles. Download below to find out.
