DJ Hyphen Interview-2
DJ Hyphen Interview-3
As promised here are the 2nd and third parts of the Marathon of Shame interview with DJ Hyphen form KUBE 93fm in Seattle’s “Sunday Night Sound Session”. And for shits & giggles I included a picture taken mere moments before I became locked in mortal combat with the aforementioned racist bulldog on the mean streets of Denver… He got some lucky shots in, but I still feel I won the fight.
DJ Hyphen Interview-1
I was recently digging through some old shit & found a bunch of remnants of TopR’s & my 2008 double album release tour “The Marathon of Shame” which became alternatively known as “31 Jumpstreet”. Aside from ourselves the tour featured Portland OR’s premier Mexican, DJ ATM, Gurp City uber producer Dink Nasty aka Cutty Bang, and world’s drunkest tour manager Dwight Lightning (see pic). While well attended & well performed, like anything else involving TopR & myself it was a race to the bottom on many levels. Not the least of which being a 16 hour drinking bender in Denver that began with hungover bloody mary’s at 10am and ended with me wrestling a stranger’s “racist” bulldog (I still stand by that accusation) on the sidewalk after last call.
During our stop in Seattle we rolled through the city’s main hip hop station KUBE 93fm, and did an interview with the one & only DJ Hyphen on Sunday Night Sound Session. This is from a few years back but unless you live in Seattle (and still probably if you do) you’ve never heard it. To make it fit I had to chop it into 3 parts and will be posting the other 2 parts over the next couple of days.
As promised The Ville Boyz have been keeping up with their quality music grind (quality being the operative word here). To that end, we here at GCS continue our ongoing series of free music from them and other assorted members of the Jameson submarine team.
Also, hot on the heels of the release of their full length “Posted”, the Fist Fam continues their relentless assault on the internet music game with next week’s official release of the new “Panama Jack” maxi-single, which will of course also be available at no cost to you at this location, so remain transfixed.

3 more shows with The Artifacts and another job well done by what I like to call “The Greatest Show on Drugs”, though this time the lion’s share of the devastation was done by tequila & Jameson. While the name of this tour has been “Back Up On the Scene”, this particular leg of it should have been known as Vomi-Tour-ium. In Greenville, SC the notorious DJ Football began the night with four consecutive shots of Patron, while the goodly people of the audience assaulted the stage with complimentary shot after beer during our performance. I lost count somewhere around the 12th can of PBR & the 15th shot of Jamie.
I am proud to say that I broke a personal record, vomiting 3 times on stage & miraculously not fumbling a verse. After our set someone literally asked me if barfing on stage was “my gimmick”, as if being some kind of rap G.G. Allen was now hot in the streets (fuck, I’m so out of touch with current culture it just might be). And while walking past some chick near the restrooms she pointed at the twin glops of regurge on my shirt & asked “eewww, what’s that?” I simply responded “A lifestyle”.
But alas I have to award the Gurp Trophy to DJ Football, aka Bitch Ninja, aka Kool DJ Yellow Alert, etc. For needing his girl to drive him home from the club & having her pull over six times in one hour to earl on the side of the highway. Upon his return home, curling up on the cool comfort of the bathroom floor next to his Racer X magazine & letting the spins lull him into sweet dreams of motorcycle porn… Oh yeah also there was some music played in between there somewhere.
Big shouts to Jessica for getting our DJ home safely & then snapping the appropriate photo as he wallowed in his self-inflicted wounds.
Ever since the Ville Boys returned from San Francisco they’ve had Asheville in a headlock. Their music has always been good, but MC/producer Dirty Frost has refined the group’s sound, the crew have dialed in the lyrics right along with it and the live shows have gone bonanza. Everything I’ve seen & heard from these guys lately just proves to me what a key role they are playing in the reanimation of the once nearly dead Asheville rap scene. They’ve been banging away in the lab lately & we will be bringing you a series of free singles as they are released. Below is the 1st track in that series, the appropriately titled “The Music Defines Us”… So in the words of Tame 1 “Tell a friend, tell a foe, tell everybody you know”
