Now this is what I’m talking about. There are a few artists and albums that are on my phone and never get deleted… Black Spadeis one of those artists. A while back I ran into him at the LA vs. War art exhibit and we got to talking about projects. After dropping some Hawthorne Headhunters stuff, Build and Destroy, and leaked out some tracks I was ready for the next Black Spade album. Spadewas like listen to Build and Destroy a little more. At that time I did not know that The Sweetest Revenge was in the works. Later Black Spade let me know when the The Sweetest Revenge was dropping, and I’ve been rocking it since. With every Black Spade project he steps it up, and if that track Billy Bad Ass doesn’t get you hooked, then I don’t know what will. The Sweetest Revenge won’t disappoint. Go get Black Spade – The Sweetest Revenge on F5 Records. BIG thanks to Black Spade for consistently making good music.
Black Spade - The Sweetest Revenge
I’m a long time fan of Black Spade, so it was a really cool to get a chance to chat with him about past projects, stuff he’s working on now, and the future of Black Spade. He put out the mixtape Build and Destroy, and most recently a beat tape called The Day We Landed. I can’t stop playing either one. I met up with Black Spade at I Ced’s place when they were taking a break from working on some Hawthorne Headhunts’ tracks. I got a little insight about who Black Spade is and what his future plans are. I did learn one important lesson about doing interviews- Don’t stop recording until you leave, because we talked about everything. I know I’ll be doing another interview with him when he drops back into town. Check out Black Spade – The Day We Landed. BIG thanks Black Spade for taking the time, and making the music. Keep it going. BIG shout out to I Ced for the sound effects (ha ha) and the place.
I’ve been waiting for this since To Serve With Love. If you don’t know about Black Spade, this is a good time to be introduced to him with his new mixtape Build and Destroy. Once you cop it, I guarantee you will be digging up everything else Black Spade makes. From St. Louis, Black Spade produces banging tracks and has a flow like no other. He’s made an instant classic with To Serve With Love (get it if you don’t have it). He is a member of the super group Hawthorne Headhunters, has contributed to many projects like Starship 27 compilation, and is now here to Build and Destroy. This mixtape is filled with crazy production by Black Spade that has a hypnotic sound that you’ll be nodding your head to. Black Spade has gathered up equally dope guests from Coultrain to El Prez for this project. This is one of those times I urge you to stop reading and download Black Spade – Build and Destroy NOW! Check out Black Spade on MySpace and Twitter. BIG thanks to Black Spade for making the music, and BIG shout to Trackstar, Union LA, & Smoking Section.

Once again gearing up for Boombox, and the line up is crazy. Boombox is having their Producer Showcase (vol. 6) with some heavy hits that are making BIG waves. We got Proh Mic from the Hawthorne Headhunters, TOKiMONSTA from Brainfeeder, Devonwho rep’n Klipmode, & Snowman (Jack) who’s out right dope in my book. My man Inka One gets top notch folks at Boombox, so this is one not to be missed. And always on deck at Boombox resident DJs Inka One, Ben Diggin, One Man Jazz. See you there. IMPORTANT: RSVP at Going LA
