Skrillex Remix: Kendrick Lamar - 'Humble'

Posted On: September 25, 2017

I'm not sure about this mix even though Skrillex is that dude with this music production thing. But this remix of Kendrick Lamar's 'Humble' with the electronic dance music, hmmm I can't quite put my ears to it. 

The instrumentals are not bad, sounds like Skrillex is playing with the MPC and some keyboard instrumentals. At least he is being creative and this mix will definitely spin at a rave club. Who knows maybe after a few spins and Henny, one can bop their head to this.

Well, you can bop to it now.

Blaze it below.


Another One Bites The Dust: Cipha Sounds Resigns From HOT 97

Posted On: January 28, 2015

Dang, what's going on over at HOT 97? First Angie Martinez, now Cipha Sounds, hmmm... things that make you raise an eyebrow.

There's some speculations with this story, but it's evident Cipha Sounds no longer works at HOT 97. Different sources are reporting he got fired, some are saying he resigned but whatever the reason might be, it was a mutual agreement between Cipha Sounds and the administration department at HOT 97. But one thing for sure, HOT 97 will never be the same.

After working for HOT 97 for 17 years, Cipha Sounds called it quits. In a recent Juan Epstein podcast, Cipha Sounds expressed his frustration with the popular music station and revealed how he turned down a job offering at their rival station, Power 105.1 out of loyalty for HOT 97. Cipha Sounds vented to his colleague Peter Rosenberg about the lack of communication at HOT 97 when it comes to their bosses. Cipha also opened up, about Nessa Nitty from California joining the station in replacement of Angie Martinez and having no issues with her.

Cipha Sounds went on to state, how he was not sure where he stood with the radio station and was uncertain about his future there. But expressed how he wants HOT 97 to be successful regardless, if he continued to work there or not.

Hmmm... There's more.

Check out the the whole broadcast of the podcast below.

After the episode on Juan Epstein, Cipha Sounds announced his departure at HOT 97. Both parties involved, Cipha and HOT 97 released statements about the matter.

Below is the statement released from HOT 97.

"Effective immediately, Cipha Sounds is no longer with WQHT HOT 97 FM. We wish him well on his future endeavors."

Cipha Sounds statement below was a little more lengthy.

“After 17 years, I’m leaving Hot 97. I¹m changing my relationship status from ‘it¹s complicated’ to ‘single’. It¹s been an amazing ride – from intern to weekends to morning show host to fill Angie¹s seat in afternoons. Many years of incredible, life-changing experiences and enough amazing memories to last five lifetimes. The next move is already underway and I promise it’s going to be huge.”

So far, no other statements have been released. I'm sure wherever Cipha Sounds goes or ends up, he'll be okay and do fine. With his experience, Cipha Sounds could even start his own radio station. Cipha is talented, this could be the set up for something big.
