The Pharcyde launch their own TV Channel to Build a new avenue for creatives

Infamous hip hop group The Pharcyde have launched a new TV channel ‘The Pharcyde TV’ (PHTV) aimed to create a global network of like minded creatives. 

Bootie Brown says he started the channel originally to market their own music. He goes on to say that “It's been a challenge to find companies who do what they are supposed to do after paying or promised that they are committet to your project," 

“At the same time through out our 25+ years I have met people who I feel are passionate as myself in breaking the cycle of monotony and would like to contribute another angle aside of the norm. I want to create a Global network of like minded individuals who will shake up the industry,” he said. 

The channel so far features collectives around the world with video interviews from Dutch music journalist Payology, SYS Sessions and SYS Radio from Australian music journalist Maggie Tra, Latina DJ and Radio Host Lucy Sarabia with Firme Radio, "Splendid Radio" with Imani, Ta'Raach & Schmooche AND free online yoga classes with Yoga Buzz (From St. Louis, Missouri). 

PHTV will also work as a pay-on demand channel “Flickss." Allowing users to watch movies and documentaries through the channel at a price. 

“The Unseen” will be PHTV's first documentary starting in October. The Unseen - A Detroit Beat Tape is a film by Gus Sutherland, a young director from Belfast who we discovered had interviewed artists and edited new and archival footage from the defining "Hip Hop Shop Era" of Detroit.  The film will also be accompanied by a soon to be released soundtrack.

The best of the borough - 3 female rappers for your friday.

Written by Bree Stewart

Though I was barely there a day, the borough of Brooklyn changed my soul. Hip Hop has always transformed me. Before exams, presentations and even during breakup woes, various hip hop anthems have made sweet love to my ear-holes and pushed me through adversity. Earlier this year myself and the Mrs strolled through ol’ Brooklyn one warm New York evening; life all around us  - pure movement. Brooklyn is the truest representation of the concept of hustle, the notion of the American dream, or better yet Humanity’s dream.

The borough spans a rich history, and better yet, she’s also the home to some overly inspiring hip hop artists. When you’re on the train to work and Hildi in the button-down shirt emits gas from her bumhole whilst walking past you (could you not hold it one more stop Hildi?), close your eyes and transport yourself to complete empowerment with these three outstanding Brooklyn-based rappers.


Btw they all have vaginas.


1. Junglepussy

Junglepussy’s album Pregnant with Success sends love to the women in her life “It’s an ode to my mother and to all mothers...anyone who ever planted a seed, anyone who ever created something, anyone who ever waited patiently for something to come into fruition."

2. Lil' Kim

Biggie Small mentee Lil’ Kim is arguably one of the better rapper’s to come out of Brooklyn amongst both men and women within the industry. Kim has no time for disingenuous human beings, and as such was one of the first women in Hip Hop to rap with the same explicit lyrics and edgy content as her Male counterparts.


3. T’Nah Apex

T’Nah has been known to rap alongside Joey Bada$$ or Buckshot as an accompanying vocalist, though this new-age MC has a couple of unknown gems on her own, most notably her pro-era, inspirational track XYXX.


Tupac 'All eyes on me' Movie Teaser is here

Although doesn't show much at all, most of us hip hop fanatics cannot wait to watch this movie. 

Tips on how to send your music to blogs

So you’ve done the hard part of making the music, so what next? I get hundreds of emails everyday and it always baffles me on how musicians don’t put in much effort when it comes to sending their music through. You’ve just created the most amazing art, don’t let it get ruined by the email. 

What musicians forget is that the email is part of the project as well, it all goes hand in hand. So I thought I would give you a few tips on how to send your music to blogs. 

Introduce yourself

Don’t have a bio? Then get one, it will be the best investment you will ever make. You can even write one yourself, just make sure it accurately describes who you are. The who, what, when and where is very applicable here. 

Add links to your everything

I can’t stress it enough. Make sure that the person who is reading the email has all the information about you. The links to your social media accounts, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, YouTube and website. 

Don’t send MP3s, send links to your music

Most of the time bloggers will only listen to your music with streaming services so make sure you are on them. It also makes it easier for them to get to your music quickly. If you’re not on Soundcloud then get on it! It’s great because bloggers are able to embed your music to their site and write a story about it. 

Always have an image and cover art

I cannot stress this enough. The worst part of opening an email is not knowing what the person looks like. You want to make it as easy as possible for the writer to enjoy your music and repost it with all the information on there.
