Scotty was on a tight schedule this past CMJ, but he came through on his word and not only stopped by Fresh Out The Box, but set off the whole damn special episode. Catch a glimpse of our new, colorful digs while Scotty speaks a bit on the “New Atlanta” movement, his new project with DJ Burn One (F.A.I.T.H.), the white kid in the “Pay Day” video, and his East Atlanta upbringing.
Shot and put together by George Lowe of ApartmentK.
Bonus: Last night on Fresh Out The Box, we were blessed with a little something brand spankin’ new to premier from our Chi-Town homey. It also features Blanco Caine from the L.E.P. camp. This is probably what happens when you throw some gutter Chi shit into a blender with Massive Attack. Peep the audio ripped straight off of the FOTB live stream.
Fresh Out The Box returning to its live, weekly broadcast during CMJ week could only result in an episode bursting at the seams with ignant gems, drunken banter, felonious activity, and other assorted fly shit…in short: an on-air mini-showcase, FOTB style. Of course this meant that we held a round robin of some of the best, new, badman rap talent one could ever bring to you. The aforementioned guests? Scotty ATL, Boldy James, Trinidad Jame$, GrandeMarshall, Rome Fortune, and Wara from the NBHD.

Gunplay Don Logan stomped through to our own Fresh Out The Box back in April. It took a minute to get it all together, but we now present the 2-part interview and freestyle(s) session we had the pleasure of hosting with MMG‘s own rifleman.
In Part 1, he sheds light on his not-so-well-known “other name,” the business model behind having multiple aliases, possibly working with Jay-Z and Pharrell, choosing his sound, his favorite movies, and political conspiracies.
DGB‘s own Farrington G was on-deck to join Note and I along in the festivities, as well as to bestow some of the finer goods in life. You probably won’t see that type shit happen ever again.
In the second part, the “bonus reel,” the man with multiple names rhymes over two ODB classics (one time being completely spontaneous and “off the top”), talks about the concept behind his upcoming 106 N Snort, more ODB, having Jay‘s Reasonable Doubt as his “bible,” and how he stays healthy amongst all of the industry politics.
Big up LZ, Orlando, Isabelle and the rest of BBOX, Fang, and of course Gunplay for coming through.
Fresh Out The Box is on every Thursday, 7:30pm-9:30pm (EST) via BBOX Radio.
For the full FOTB episode and Gunplay interview…click here.
Mishka x PTP collabos are always something to talk about. This is no different. The first in a monthly mix series that is to highlight some of the most potent raps of the moment, as co-curated by Mishka and us Fresh Out The Box overlords.
Once the tracks are assembled, I take them to Orchard Beach, whilst wearing a Level-3 biohazard suit (naturally), and begin the hour-long process of placing them in story-telling sequence along the nasty bed of wet sand (and other stuff). Mishka knew about this special ceremonial rap dance that I perform alongside my co-d’s Note D, Jaime Buddha, and whoever else is in there every Thursday on BBOX Radio (at 7:30pm-9:30pm EST, as FOTB), so they stepped in for a twirl or three.

Fresh Out The Box FOR THE WIN! Okay, really “FTW” stands for our visual arts familia: the Field Trip World crew. This means Note and I got to entertain ourselves with the never-predictable minds of Herbert Spliffington, Wryclonis, and Soho Max. These guys know us well…as they entered with a sixer of Lagunitas plus FTW zine in tow. On-air mayhem could only follow. We speak mathematics. Spliffington shows that he is the Super Cat public knowledge king. Wry shows that he is the Wu Tang quote king. Max proves that he is the loud, talking-burp king (maybe…rematch soon). Spine-tingling, Sleng Tengling radio.

#TrapRapFridays is on again…and the folks and familia over at Dirty Glove Bastard and Ballers Eve have nabbed us up for the ride. I was told to tell you to consider this unholy union as New York City’s official “progressive trap rap” coalition…and this event, the 2nd of the 2012 saga, to stand as the gateway to all things trappy and large-sounding, sound system-wise. Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire will host and maybe even perform (or just touch scantily clad women types) for this special Friday the 13th edition. Expect some other special out-of-town guests too.
All this trill ruckus takes place at Drom, 11pm-4am.
BBOX Radio, home to Fresh Out The Box, will probably be streaming this live…so if you are not in the city, sick at home, or not of age…or some other weird shit… you can at least listen to the madness as it unravels on the best Internet radio station out there.
Big up our mans Farrington and KDS. Word the fuck up.
If you’re in NYC, and on this page, you’re most likely getting all excited to go check Danny Brown at Santos. If you’re not (in NYC or making it to Santos), fret not, we’ll have some footage for you in a few days.
Either way, the best listening experience for that new serving of #WholesomeRaps is Fresh Out The Box…we’re just telling you what THEY’VE told us. Tune in tonight for the aforementioned musical stylings plus plenty of non-filtered talk. We also got some joints to premier to the world as well as some surprise guests…maybe a call-in or two…who knows?! Hhonestly, we don’t even know who might show up half of the time.
As per usual: peep the classic ep from two Thursdays ago, where we (myself and Note)
celebrateD the timeless work of Brooklyn’s lost, wholesome rap hero…a day early (March 8th). We also had the honor of talking to Detroit’s own Boldy James, regarding his new Consignment project; as well as 2011′s much-celebrated Trapper’s Alley: Pros And Cons. He also speaks on his daughter’s rap career, his love for Mobb Deep, making music with Chuck Inglish & The Alchemist, and seeing “the doctor” while in LA… plus he spits some exclusive shit.

Note will be manning the PTP twitter account during that time; for anyone who got somethin’ slick to say…or if you just want to get into a lengthy discussion about vascular tissue and the properties of corn starch in cold/hot broth.
ALSO: Peep last Thursday’s ep, where we (myself, Note, and Jaime Buddha) rap about coke and baseball, gold fronts, and your favorite rapper’s embarrassing Twitter conduct, while I play non-embarrassing, gold-fronted, baseball and coke rap (maybe not so much on the baseball).
