Greyscale & Deal Breakers

1 Jul

Last night’s Beats, Rhymes and Life was so much fun, and quite hilarious. We had our special guest Greyscale on to talk about upcoming projects, currently untitled, and his upcoming show on July 12th at Middle East upstairs. If you haven’t gotten familiar with his album “Beats I Like…” get hip! This is why we fell in love with Greyscale, and his live performance is not to be missed. We look forward to his upcoming projects!

In the Life section of our show we discussed Rosie’s theory that the size of a man’s hand is directly related to the size of a man’s pride & joy . What is a relationship deal breaker for Greyscale and the Queen Bee’s of BRL?? Tune in to the podcast and be prepare to laugh!

Tonight you can find us at “Scope Urban Apparel Turns 1” over in JP at Got Sole on Centre Street starting at 7 PM. We are so proud to celebrate a year of intelligent designs, hard work and integrity with the guys that embody the Boston community, the hip hop community, and Beats, Rhymes and Life. Come out celebrate, support and network!

Tune in next Thursday 5:30-7:30 for another Beats, Rhymes and Life with our special guest Oak Lonetree!

“Itty Bitty” Video Released!

28 Jun

My favorite song, “Itty Bitty”, by Kris-Jin ft Harrison, now has a video! When they perform this track live with their band Feed The Tiger, it’s truly magic!

Be sure to be on the lookout for their album this summer!

Boston Makes Me Proud

23 Jun

Boston was so live last night at our fourth artist showcase over at Good Life. We had a surprise performance by Rosie Cakez and the Ferocious Treats and a visit by our boy Lapaixx all the way from NY to see what all the talk was about.

We had many people from the scene come and vibe with us, shouts to: Fran-P, Greyscale, Retrospeck, and Brain Trust for coming through.

We also got most of the artists, if not all, to bless the mic on the second cypher that went down last night. Cats went in on the cypher and the energy that was flowing through the room was incredible. Be on the lookout for visuals of last night from Big Byrd the Boss!

Peep the newly released video “Freshest” by Pause ft. O.T.O, directed by Dante Luna, that came out yesterday, which they also performed last night.

We have Boycott Blues on our show tomorrow, an artist that is NOT to be slept on. He performed at our last artist showcase, and is definitely one of the best artists Boston has to offer. His last album, Irony and Bonus Disc R.I.P City Mixtape, caught a lot of attention from the media including Hip Hop DX, the Boston Phoenix and more. The album features Consequence and Insight and the mixtape was hosted by Clinton Sparks.

We are also giving away tickets on the show to the Mr. Lif & Moe Pope show at Church Boston this Friday! Be sure to tune in to Beats, Rhymes and Life on from 5:30-7:30 for a chance to win.

Phone Calls & Surprise Guests at BRL

17 Jun

Last night’s show was crazy, just how we like it on Beats, Rhymes and Life. After a week of great events- The Akrobatik Benefit Show, The Brown Bag Allstars, The Boston Phoenix Music Poll Awards– we took it to the station with some great local cats.

Big Byrd the Boss came and kicked it with us after releasing a video of our interview with Dante Luna in studio. We had a lot to discuss off air with him about a future visual plan, a plan that will hopefully be put into play this summer. Be on the lookout for that and get excited!


We got to catch up with YC The Cinic, one of our NY cats, about “Fall FWD” and what he’s up to now. If you haven’t listened to his album, make sure to take a listen, you’ll thank him later.

We got an exclusive interview with the guys from Parker Clothing, who are also the cats behind New Bike Clothing. Tune into the podcast to learn how they got started and their inspiration behind the designs of Parker.

We ended our show on a dope note with Charmingly Ghetto who spit one of his tracks live for us. Not only is he a dope MC but he’s also a great performer. The Queen Bee’s got to see him live at Church a while back with Retrospeck, who opened for the Brown Bag Allstars on Tuesday night. Scope Urban Apparel was in the building, at Church, along with Green Street Vault, a super unique business where the best urban clothing is brought to you: swag.

Big shout out to Moe Pope and Rain for winning Best Hip Hop in Boston at the Awards show on Wednesday night. Moe Pope and Quills put on such a dope performance that night, and they performed the exclusive track the did on our show. Our girl Anastasia took some iLL photos, I’ll be sure to link to them for visuals if you happened to miss out.

So what did we learn last night from Beats, Rhymes and Life?

Lube is only necessary if you aren’t thorough. Save your money by doing your job right.

Uncle Jesse‘s are real.

And if you don’t know, we only fuck with the illest. Now you know.

Next week tune in 5:30-7:30 with our special guest Boycott Blues, a REALLY dope MC that you don’t want to sleep on.

D-Tension Drops Some Knowledge on BRL

10 Jun

Last night we had the legendary D-Tension on Beats, Rhymes and Life, which was a really interesting and informative interview on hip hop from the eyes of the child in the Bronx during the late 70’s to one of the pioneers of hip hop in the Boston/Lowell area. What was the Boston hip hop scene like when it started out? What big names has D-Tension toured with? Tune in to the podcast and find out! You can also hear Leah V spin some of D’s rare tracks that he just released.

D-Tension on BRL

Make sure to check out D’s latest album “Wack Music for Dope People” and don’t miss out on his music videos. Catch him tomorrow night at the Akrobatik Benefit Concert at the Middle East in Cambridge and his other upcoming events.

We also caught up with Tyga and The Legendary Axe from Masstapeace while they were at the studio working on Tyga’s newest project “Father of the Year” mixtape, which is set to be released in September. You can also catch Masstapeace performing tomorrow night alongside D-Tension and many of the other artists we love and support.

Leah V and Catch Wreck were also featured on Big Sauce Radio (a dope comedy show) on UNregular  last night choppin’ it up, freestyling and having fun with those cats and the live band they had on. Check out the podcast, very funny!

Scope Urban Apparel was also in the building last night holding it down as always and we had a surprise visit by our boy Fran-P, an artist that you need to get familiar with.
