Taxstone Interview with DJ Vlad


In Taxstone’s most recent interview with VladTV earlier this month, Vlad congratulates Tax on a successful 2016 and Taxstone says he’s focused on the future.

Soulja Boy Goes off on Chris Brown, Mike Tyson, Kanye West, Shia LeBeouf, Migos & Lil Yachty


It’s been nearly ten years since Soulja Boy released his breakthrough smash hit, ‘Crank That,’ which dropped back in May of 2007. While a majority of his snap music contemporaries have since vanished from pop culture and music, Soulja Boy — real name DeAndre Cortez Way — continues to make news headlines throughout the years. Whether it is due to dropping hundreds of songs, linking up with (and occasionally signing) the hottest up-and-coming artists, inking multi-million dollar deals with on-flight gambling organizations, or beefing with big-name celebrities like Chris Brown, Shia Labeouf and others, the self-proclaimed King of the Internet has been working hard to stay on top.

For HYPEBEAST TV’s latest episode, they linked up with Soulja Boy to speak on his forthcoming music projects, new music with Drake, Post Malone and more, his SODMG brand and forthcoming sneaker line SBeezy Lights, recent feuds and highly-anticipated boxing match with Chris Brown. Fortunately, the 26-year-old rap mogul was gracious enough to be on his “f*ck everybody” vibe,” expressing everything that was on his mind regarding his recent situations. Soulja goes off on Chris Brown, Mike Tyson, Kanye West, Shia LeBeouf, Migos, Lil Yachty and more. Watch the monologue above. Draco. Read more

Rhythm Roulette: Mr. DJ


For this week of Rhythm Roulette, Mass Appeal went to Atlanta to link with Mr. DJ.

Mr. DJ is a producer’s producer. An Atlanta legend, he’s a member of the Dungeon Family, the unsung hero responsible for creating some of Outkast’s greatest tracks. Credited individually for classics like “Elevators,” and “Da Art of Storytellin,'” he eventually linked with Big Boi and Andre 3000, forming like Voltron to make up the production team Earthtone III. Besides Outkast, he’s also produced music for acts as varied as Lenny Kravitz, Bubba Sparxxx, Goodie Mob, Killer Mike and 8Ball & MJG.

On their trip to Atlanta, they stopped by the record shop where Mr. DJ selected Michael Jackson’s “Off The Wall,” J Dilla’s “Donuts,” and a Stones Throw compilation “The Buzz.” Two modern day hip hop records is definitely not something he was expecting to cop, out of the norm compared to previous pickings during Rhythm Roulettes. From there, we headed to the legendary Stankonia Studios to see what he chopped up. Read more
