In case you missed it. Day 1 Radio interviewed Master P and it’s probably going to be the best hour you spend on the internet today. He talked about everything from turning down Jimmy Iovine and Interscope Records early on in his career, his current relationship with C-Murder and why artists shouldn’t expect to make any money selling records anymore.
Please share, plenty of game and jewels in this one.

In case you didn’t know, I’ve been hosting this dope ass party me and some friends created called #PLAYLISTPARTY. Been doing it since May every Monday at Department Store on the corner of Edgewood and Boulevard. It’s a party where we allow people to come to the DJ booth with their smartphone and play whatever they want. Some people play their favorite songs from the past, some play songs they made and some play songs they just heard and figured everyone needed to hear.
Last night some one came up and played this song called “Broke” by a Chicago rapper named God.

Run The Jewels 2 drops on October 27th and they are coming to Atlanta on November 4th.
Thanks to cable TV and the news, Baltimore, Maryland has been typecast as a city riddled with crime to the point it’s been nicknamed “Bodymore, Murderland.” But for the last 15 years Hip Hop artist Huli Shallone been rewriting the script on how to live outside of that narrative.
No stranger to the city’s reputation, Huli Shallone witnessed the real life version of HBO’s The Wire growing up as two of his uncles (“Slim Charles” and Bodie Barksdale) were loosely portrayed in the popular series. Naturally, he’d attempt to follow in their footsteps but after seeing the dead end that lifestyle almost always led to, Huli opted to switch his hustle to music.
The decision paid off quickly as within the first couple of years of his career he saw his songs receive airtime on Baltimore radio. Soon after, Huli was gracing television screens across the nation with appearances on Showtime at the Apollo and and BET’s 106 & Park. By 2005, just five years into his craft, Huli was touring the country opening up for likes of Mannie Fresh and Lil Flip.
Capitalizing off the success, Huli released his first solo effort and thanks to the success of his hit single “For My Shorty,” the album moved more than 10,000 units independently, making him one of the most popular and critically-acclaimed artists in the DMV area.
While Shallone can rap effortlessly about the streets, it’s other subject matter that has him being recognized as one of the premier talents coming out of Baltimore. His new single “Make It Twerk” has been spreading throughout nightclubs on the East coast and Midwest, at the same time receiving airplay throughout the Southeast. He also has the internet on smash with his video “Jammin” collecting over one million views.
All of this is backed up with years of music featuring songs about everything from spiritual awakening (“Thank God”) to adversity (“Never Give Up”). Huli shows even more range with songs like the melodic ladies call “Stay” and hood anthem “Run Up” featuring Styles P.
With acting ambitions in his sights as well, Huli Shallone is poised to the face of Baltimore, giving the city a real person, not a TV character, that they can be proud of.
