Cool Nutz - Best & Worst (Remix) ft Slum Village & Bosko

Super prolific Portland MC Cool Nutz teams with Detroit’s own Slum Village on the “Best & Worst” (Remix) from his forthcoming N.P.Y. (Never Play Yaself) LP, due out February 23rd.

Also featuring longtime collaborator Bosko - most recently known for his work with Outkast's Big Boi, the track produced by Portland-to-Oakland transplant and BROKEBOYSYNDROME architect TOPE. An ode to crew love punctuated by hard verses, “Best & Worst” is the fruit of Cool Nutz’s time spent out on the road touring with Slum Village for a good portion of 2015.

The end result is a lush remix that flashes back to the heyday of the sped up sample and stands as a true testament to the sonic influence of Slum founder and celebrated beat god J Dilla.

Str8OutDaDen Podcast: 0 to 100 Real Slow…Why Great Marketing Takes Time

You may have heard of an artist by the name of Drake (he's been in the news quite often for the past couple of years). If so then you probably have heard of his song "0 to 100 (Real Quick)".  We live in a world where everything is fast. Your car, blowing money and getting fans right?

Well if you've ever released a project, then you may have notice that building a solid fan base doesn't happen overnight. It takes a strategic marketing plan that should be thought of BEFORE you drop any music.

This week on The Str8OutDaDen Podcast they talk how getting from 0 to 100 fans is a slow process and why great marketing takes time. We focus on dispelling 3 age old misconceptions about marketing and answers questions from listeners of the podcast.
