MobSquad Nard’s sophomore project, Nardo DaVinci, is finally here. For last year’s debut, Everything Clean But Da Ashtray, the Jacksonville rapper trotted out a host of big features including 21 Savage, BIG K.R.I.T. and G Herbo but Nard wanted this album to be more personal. While Boosie Badazz makes an appearance, the remaining features are from Nard’s own MobSquad members and his good friend Starlito with whom he records a lot.

Production credits on Nardo DaVinci go mainly to Fames Sinatra with a bouncy contribution from Zaytoven, making it a 12-track romp through Duval County, Florida that will find a welcome home in any whip and at every block party. The album is now available on all DSP’s via Cinematic Music Group.

Two of Hip Hop’s most prolific producers, Beatnick & K-Salaam, gathered up a smorgasboard of lyrical talent and the result is The Bluest Flame. Notables and frequent collaborators like Tech N9NE. Talib Kweli, Blu, Bun B, Young Buck, Fashawn, Wrekonize and Joell Ortiz bless the board work of these Minnesota natives, complementing one another perfectly, for an album that heads especially will appreciate. The Bluest Flame is the next to final project that Beatnick & K-Salaam will be dropping together as Beatnick has decided to focus on his career in commercial music production for Asche & Spencer.

As a duo, Beatnick & K-Salaam have an incredible discography with albums featuring a who’s who of Hip Hop. Over the years the two have released multiple projects and produced for the likes of Keane, Trey Songz, Bun B, Lil Wayne, Junior Reid, Nas, K’naan, Talib Kweli, Lil Wayne, Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def, Young Buck, Buju Banton, Collie Buddz, Sizzla, Hollywood Undead, Murs, Fashawn, Smif N Wessun, and much more. Moreover, in 2012-2013, Beatnick & K-Salaam did all the Sound Design for Lauryn Hill’s live shows / concerts (designed custom made synth sounds and sample patches for the keyboard player, and created custom made drum samples for the drummer.) 

Beatnick & K-Salaam have also had their music placed in many TV shows, commercials, movies and video games. Some of their placements include: FIFA 15NBA Live 15NCIS: LA, VH1’s Hit the Floor, Fox TVs Red Band Society, and most recently the duo did the music scoring for NBC’s coverage of the 2016 Olympics in Rio, de Janeiro.

Currently K-Salaam resides in Vancouver where he teaches Music Production at various well- respected institutions, including NYU’s Clive Daivs Inst. of Recorded Music, and at Douglas College’s Music Technology Dept. in Vancouver, BC (where he also helps to run the program). Wednesday night he was welcomed as a guest DJ at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver for the Lauryn Hill / Nas show.

Rich Rick – “1-800-SPEAKTRUTH” [Video]

•October 10, 2017 • Leave a Comment
 Cali based artist Rich Rick returns again with a poignant new single for his remix to Logic’s song 1-800-273-8255Remixed as “1-800-Speak The Truth”, Rich Rick addresses a host of issues from not ridin on people “he don’t wanna see die,” to people surrounding him with their hands out with no real value. Rich Rich holds nothing back on this track and it’s a reminder to pay attention to the company you keep in your circle and to look after those around you..
Rich Rick is chose to release this song to highlight the plight of the unaddressed mental illness that plagues our communities near and far.  An influential performer and producer, Rich Rick has collaborated with a host of artists including, Ty Dolla $ign, Ray J., AD, Omarion and B2K.
This song is important for Rich Rick because he went from drive by’s, incarceration stints, lawsuits and being a “playa” in the game to participating in Christmas Toy Giveaways with Mayor Antonio Villaragosa in his old neighborhood where he used to menace.  Finding the time to assist in giving away over 13,000 bicycles to needy children with the world acclaimed DREAM CENTER-Los Angeles have earned Rich Rick right to set the bar high and wide.
From getting shot to lawsuits Rich Rick is just glad to be alive and the vibe fits perfect with the Logic song that has become a nationwide hit for people facing mental health issues. A lot of people should be able to relate to his shout outs at the end of the song, especially for those that have family that have passed and that are incarcerated. This is a keep your head up type song from Rich Rick’s Major Artists imprint along with his brother iShowOff,  proving they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
