Keep an eye out for Tsu’s “2am” project set to drop next month. In the meantime, peep the latest video. Respect Jersey!
In this installment of the 7th Boro Writer Spotlight, I had the opportunity to kick it with New Jersey’s own Label Grafik. If you’re not familiar with Label, he’s a graff artist/photographer out of Perth Amboy, N.J. who is nice when it comes to writing. I grew up in the same city as Label so I’m very familiar with his work. One of the first pieces that got me interested in Label’s artwork was a drawing of classic Hip Hop 90’s tapes. Being a fan of the music, I was instantly drawn toward that piece.
Before we get started Label, I just wanted to thank you for taking time out to do this interview with the 7th Boro.
Stroy: What/Who inspired you to become an artist?
Label: I started messing around with graffiti lettering back in “1992” due to being a young hip hop head. When I first came across the music video of The Artifacts “Wrong side of the Tracks” in the summer of “1994” who fully inspired me to get better in this craft. I met Jersey Joe aka Rime in “1998” who is huge in the graff scene helped me increase my skill and style that I have today. With out Artifacts and Rime there will be no Label Grafik. continue
Two more episodes away from the big 200! I can’t believe how fast time flies. It seems like yesterday that DJ Absurd started the Ear 2 The Streets Radio podcast. Props to him for being the Cal Ripken of the podcast game. Bless.
New Jersey’s hardest working DJ is back at it with another installment of Ear 2 the Streets. This one features new music from Curren$y, Action Bronson, Black Milk, Clear Soul forces, and a ton of other nasty emcees. Make sure you play this loud and share it.
Miilkbone was one of the first emcees to really blow up in my hometown of Perth Amboy NJ. He had some gems in the 90’s and he’s still doing his damn thing in the 2ks. Miilkbone is always grinding and dropping new music. This here is a small part of whats to come.
This isn’t the first time that s.HaBib and T.C.O.R (The Custodian of Records) work together and hopefully it’s not the last. Check out the latest from the Jersey duo.
Eloh Kush, John Robinson, and Id4Windz (Producer/writer/activist/stylist/Master Barber) represent the Garden State nicely on this track. Check it out.
Just got this in my submission box and I Think you all will dig this one. Great message being sent here. Shout out to Val DaGrain and all of Trenton NJ.
Come Check out up close and personal performance by Slaughterhouse‘s very own Joell Ortiz Live in Woodbridge, New Jersey. This is a once in a lifetime chance to hear the #YaowaArmy General himself show you what true hip hop is!
