NOTES TO SELF BBRC with ROB GF
“I GOT 5 HUNDRED”

A rendition is a performance or interpretation, especially of a dramatic role or piece of music.

1986: Berkeley, California’s Timex Social Club release “Thinkin’ About Ya” and are labelled the creators of a new movement that successfully merge rnb and hip hop – subsequently popularized and referred to as the late 80’s/early 90’s sound we now thankfully call “New Jack Swing”. TSC sadly disbands shortly after they release “Thinkin About Ya”.

1987: Timex Crew founder Jay King forms new band, Club Nouveau, and releases “Why You Treat Me So Bad” where he interpolates key pieces of “Thinkin’ About Ya” and reworks its main hook melody, making it an even more memorable rendition than his last, as it rises on the Billboard Hot 100 and peaks at #39.

1995: Bay Area Smokers, Luniz, enlist the help from former Timex Social Club lead singer Michael Marshall to release their rendition of “Thinkin About Ya”’s main hook melody – solely to celebrate the feeling one has when they go $5 on a dime bag with a Homie, and release “I Got 5 on It” as a collaborative record – doing one better and peaking at #8 on Billboard’s Hot 100 – which also arguably sets the highest president for a Smoker Anthem’s around the world (no pun intended), becoming a certified classic in the culture.

1999-2013 Notable Renditions: “Satisfy You” by Puff Daddy, “I’m Gonna Be Alright” Trackmasters Remix by J-Lo with Nas & 50Cent, “Irresistible” So So Def Remix by Jessica Simpson with Lil Bow Wow & JD, “Only You” by Ashanti, “The Way Life Used to Be” by Snoop Dogg, “Heaven and Hell” by Meek Mill with Jadakiss and Guordan Banks, “I Know” by Yo Gotti

2016: Notes to Self BBRC release their rendition of the former classic and aptly title theirs “I Got 5 Hundred” – enlisting a new voice for the hook, one of Rob GF’s, with producer duo Book & Bronze clearly paying homage behind the boards to Timex Crew & Club Neuveau with a sound-reboot, while BBRC’s Roshin does nothing but metaphorically praise his dime bag hero’s, Luniz, all over the track. The main change however, is one of content – while the Luniz requested you bring something to throw on a joint, the BBRC gang tell everyone to come over, cause they’re sitting on too much weed to smoke by themselves.

The Luniz’ “I Got 5 on It” is THE definitive Smoker’s Anthem in rap music. Sure, one can argue a number of other classics, but every rapper who smokes weed (about 98%) has bunned one to this song. Throwing 5 on a joint so that everyone gets to smoke is a fairly universal experience for broke teens trying get high. But, if you didn’t have a 5 though, you were out of luck… PERHAPS UNTIL NOW.

“…Add a few more bills I’m down, I’ve got 5 Hundred, lets go half on a pound.”

NEW MUSIC: J Shiltz “For The Win” (Prod. royceBIRTH)

Ty Harper | Audio,Music | Friday, July 1st, 2016

J Shiltz lets off the sixth instalment in a series of monthly drops for 2016. “For The Win” to quote CL Smooth is “a lyrical slugfest” – Shiltz goes in over a double whammy of production from Royce Birth and the results are as to be expected. If you got down with “Up High” – the last joint these two collaborated on – then its more a less guarantee your gonna be feeling this shit. Sauga City represent.

INTERVIEW: Adria Kain w/ The Come Up Show

AdriaComeUp

Chedo chops it up with that girl Adria Kain. Get to know easily one of the dopest artists in the city. Still sleeping? Start with “Sunrise” below. And man…this is one of the realest interviews you’ll hear about what it’s really like being a straight up indie artist in Toronto. The struggles when it comes to money are so real.

I’m proud to present Adria Kain on this week’s episode of The Come Up Show Podcast. Adria created “Kainsoul” as her own genre of music, and produced songs such as Colours, Sunrise, and Kainthem. She has collaborated with producers like Elaquent, Monte Booker, and Jessy Aarons.

On this episode, we went over the timeline of her album releases and what she was going through. We also discussed the struggle of doing what you love and asking people to pay you for it and so much more. Take it in.

Each and every Wednesday we’ll be uploading a brand new interview with a guest we feel that you should know about. If you love podcasts subscribe at the options below.
