ance by the icon Quincy Jones. Da Backwudz take advantage of this opportunity by creating clever verses mixing in magazine names and record labels to fit the rhyme sceme. “In Double X-L, Murder Dog, the Source, on Vibes, I’m Rolling Stones in late model rides, homey. I’m Grand Hustling, Disturbing the Peace, I’m So Def putting Organized Noize in the streets.” Rest assured, by the end of the song, you’re gonna luv it. TJ’S DJ’S 4th QUARTER TASTEMAKERS ONLY XCLUSIVES CD Disc 2 (www.TJsDJs.com) EE-DE f. RASHEEDA / LET’S GET TO IT (COLLIPARK REMIX) – NME Contact: NME Records – 404.885.5754 Ee-De “beats it from the front back and side to side,” that’s why he’s known as Mr. Up & Down. So, imagine how your speakers are going to feel when mega-producer Beatz-In-Azz (BG’s “I Want It”) gets on the track to enhance the vibration. It must feel good because the Georgia peach Rasheeda was inspired to write a beautifully erotic sweet 16 to accompany the tune. Bonus points go to TJ’s DJ’s CEO, TJ Chapman for having the vision to A&R this project. WOLFPAK f. MURDA BLAK / GET NASTY – VISHOUS VIBES Contact: Lamont Nanton – 866.428.4237 Q-Beatz uses the Newcleus classic, “Jam On It” as a backdrop to have the Wolfpak bring a new nasty twist for the dance floor. When you listen to this tune, the one thing you can’t do is sit still. Once the beat drops you’ll find yourself wanting to shake a tailfeather. “Get Nasty” on record is jamming, but when you witness the energy expelled from the Wolfpak while performing; it is a sight to behold. Visit WolfpakMusic.com to find out for yourself. TAMPA TONY / WINE – ISABOMB Contact: David “Fifalow” Gay – 813.785.7903 Go shawty, just wine to the beat! Don’t know what wine is? It’s when the booty rides the beat from side to side. Tampa Tony keeps the chicks jukin’ with another Tampa nugget. SUAVE SMOOTH / CLAP THAT ASS – HEADQUARTER Contact: Jermaine Watkins – 561.389.5525 The West Palm Beach double threat is back! He’s vicious on the mic and the beats. “Clap That Ass” is no different as he rocks the bass line giving tribute to all of the thick women. Watching the strippers give this tune life gives a whole new meaning to the thunder clap. PRETTIE RICKIE & THE MAVERIX / SO FRESH, SO CLEAN – SUPERSTAR Contact: Phil – 754.235.9204 This song was produced by the original problem child, Total Kaos. He inserts classic Florida horns and utilizes the rewind button masterfully giving this tune a unique perspective. Prettie Rickie & The Maverix put their bid in as to what makes them so fresh and clean. When you “go to church and pay your tithes with a platinum Visa,” you get extra points. DA BACKWUDZ / YOU GONNA LUV ME – ROWDY Contact: Spearhead X – 678.698.4802 Milwaukee Black masterfully produced a track that will do nothing but ring in your mind for some time to come. This song is poised to be huge, especially with a special personal clear30

OZONE APR 2005

JODY / COMEBACK – FLORIDA BOY Contact: Furquann – 904.545.5539 Jody borrows the Isley Brothers “Come Back” to make a song “for everyone that’s got somebody that they ain’t wit right now.” You can feel Jody express his pain through his verses reminiscing about the one that got away. Jody’s not without hope knowing that one day she’ll return, until that day he follows Jay-Z’s lead and makes the song cry. PICASO f. 2PAC & I.U. / GHETTO BLUES – MCS Contact: Zodman – 212.532.8050 Whenever 2Pac blesses the mic from his hidden depot in Cuba it is easy for any accompanying artist to be lost in the shadow. Picaso & I.U. do a good job establishing themselves as their own entity. Their stories networked with the production become uplifting although the theme of the tune is telling hood tales. GOLDEN CHILD / WE GOT THAT – DIGITAL SOUL Contact: Doc – 202.561.5838 “We Got That” brings an old school flavor mixed with a new attitude. The understated beat allows Golden Child to flow as if he’s on a mission to prove that D.C. has real lyricists in its midst. Or, more specifically Golden Child knows he is “the untouchable lyrical terrorist with the skills to knock anyone off the premises.” With a confidence like that, Golden Child won’t need a recount for the truth to be heard. ARCHIE EVERSOLE / GIMME ROOM (CRUNK MIX) – MOBB STAR Contact: Arlinda Garrett – 404.886.4650 Archie Eversole attacks this track like a 46 defense in Madden ’05! Archie is often underrated as a true lyricist. If you don’t give him room to do his thing, he’ll bite back and force you to listen to his bars. Whenever he touches the mic, beware and hide the kids because it’s about to get ugly. XTREMISTS / IS IT JUST US – HARSH REALITY Contact: Mass – 561.319.7221 These children of the cotton pickers have honored the legacy of their ancestors by alerting listeners to the evils of the word. The Xtremists are reminiscent of a Southern Public Enemy by pointing out the wrongs in our society. Asking “is it justice or just us,” they wonder why the courts are systematically destroying their culture and destroying their people. The most enjoyable part of the tune is in the piano riffs that set the insightful tone of the track. VERBAL SCIENCE f. YOUNG CITY (Bad Boy) / WATCHU RIDIN ON – HOT 4 EVA Contact: Short-E – 813.810.4684 Missing in action since his departure from MTV’s “Making The Band 2,” Young City (a.k.a. Chopper) makes an a appearance in Tampa with Verbal Science. Blinging? Big blades on your rides? Is that what’s hot in the streets right now? Well, if you got it like that, either you

can make the song or you cannot make the song. Verbal Science and Young City together prove that they can make a song and don’t need Wyclef. UNCLE HEAD f. CUTTHOAT & CHUCK / GET DIRTY – BOTTOM LYNE Contact: Uncle Head – 850.980.2725 Uncle Head, formerly of the Splack Pack (and Palm Beach, bitch!) continues to drop bangin’ cuts with new Bottom Lyne riders Cutthoat & Chuck. This is a pure ridin’ tune that will have the speakers preaching a hard bass line motivating you to move. Look out for Palm Beach’s favorite uncle as he continues to wiggle and poot his way to the top. DARK HEART / YA GET SKEETED ON – DARK HEART Contact: Flem Black – 813.784.5956 “Ya Gitt Skeeted On” is one of the rare tracks that is self-explanatory. Dark Heart made a song that lists all of the people they have issues with that would provoke them to skeet. For instance, if a girl thinks she’s too cute, “ya gitt skeeted on.” The heavy use of horns in the production is Funk Boogie-ish (producer, “Take It To The House”) and creates a South Florida feel. CHARLIE BOY / WHERE I STAY UP – GOTTA GET IT Contact: Charles Roswell – 561.541.1896 It ain’t where ya from, it’s where ya at. Charlie Boy is proud to let you know where he resides in W. Palm Beach (bitch!). He loved it so much he wrote a song about. Like to hear it? Here it goes. “Where I Stay Up” is a tune that even if you aren’t from WPB, with production this jammin’ you can feel why Charlie Boy is proud of his town. THE SHOCK / JUMP – FUTURE SHOCK Contact: Nick Stamps – 850.251.2059 The hook is “right cheek…jump!, left cheek… jump!” If you can catch a girl that can do that, she is a great talent indeed in need of The Shock. The Shock brings attention to the talented women that are able to have great gluteus maximus control and skills. This is a talent that until now has gone tragically uncelebrated. VELLIE BOYZ / ISLAND – LOCKDOWN Contact: Larry Cornelius – 954.579.4646 The Vellie Boyz sit back in lounge chairs dreaming of what it would be like to be rich and live on your own island. The beat has elements of a Caribbean sound that makes you feel the mist of the crashing waves. Biggie noted, mo’ money mo’ problems, but some problems are good problems. BLACK BOY / MY LIFE – FLORIDA BOY Contact: Furquann – 904.545.5539 Black Boy knows life isn’t easy, especially what he has endured. He felt it best to warn others that the fast thug life isn’t always the best way. This is a warning disguised as a head bobbing smooth tune. Hopefully, Black Boy’s listeners will heed the cautious lines. DONUT / DJ – FIVE Contact: Cassandra Montgomery – 318.218.9082 This melody is a slow jam dedicated to the heartbeat of every dance, the DJ. Try slow grinding in the club without a tune and see how fast a pimp slap can make your head spin like The Exorcist. Donut displays a suave style over this grooving sample of sensual sounds. If a DJ uses this song right, they’ll find the discs won’t be the only thing getting cut up that night. - Keith “1st Prophet” Kennedy, keith@tjsdjs.com
