Here, My Dear – Presented by Terrace Martin & Devi Dev

This really isn’t my cup of tea-usually. I’m not into N.E.R.D. or far out musical experimentation i.e. trip hop but over the past few years some “unconventional” projects stick out. Man on the Moon, 808′s & Heartbreaks, Love vs. Money and now this.

Terrace Martin is a grammy award nominated musician who’s worked with the likes of Snoop and Quincy Jones. Brought up as a jazz musician Terrace converted to hip hop production later in his life but kept the jazz influences (his “horn”). Music envokes emotions to the listener brought from experience, well good music does. Mr. Martin describes ‘Here, My Dear’ as “the feeling right before you fall in love and the very moment you realize it’s over”. If you’ve ever been in love you know what he is talking about. If you haven’t you’ll understand the sentiment when the EP is over.

The New York Times Covers Harlem’s Nutcracker

Visitors to any block party or outdoor event in Harlem this summer could not have missed the chant of “Nutcrackers! Nutcrackers!”

People in the neighborhood said selling nutcrackers had become more prevalent in the dismal economy, a means some have used to supplement their incomes with quick and easy money. Some who remember the crack boom of the mid-1980s and early 1990s, and the destruction it heaped upon the community, justify the sales, seeing them as akin to marijuana dealing or numbers gambling.

At the tendor age of 14 he and a high school friend started All Varsity Entertainment. With 3 mixtapes under his belt and releasing another one soon I offer a chance to catch up.
