Cool piece in today's LA Times on the new sound, which you know, is kinda Zen-like. I don't remember saying all the stuff I did in here actually! But what the heck, rock the discotheque:

Over three decades, perhaps the only thing that has remained constant in hip-hop is change. The music's always-evolving sound has spanned break-beats to rock guitar riffs, sinuous gangster funk to the grinding Eurodisco soundscapes of crunk and riffed on just about every other musical form along the way.

These days, hip-hop's newest dictum seems to be less is more.

What peeps,
I'm a hip hop artist who just signed a indie deal with scyon music. We're actually in the middle of recording the album. I already got some tracks done that are banging. I was hoping i could get some feedback from some outside sources. You're feedback is really important.
Check my myspace page out and drop me a few lines.
