Followers, Family, Friends & Supporters... The L.@.Me's


As you all may or may not know, LCD was recently chosen as one of the participants in the Atlanta, Ga "I dO Music" showcase.  In case you don't know exactly what that is, here's the scoop (taken from Bout Dat Blog)

Because of all your support and comments (and a quality audition), I've been selected to be one of 4 producers showcased at the upcoming "I dO Music" networking event in Atlanta, GA. If you DON'T know about "I dO Music", it's the premiere music networking event in Atlanta and takes place on the first Thursday of every month. Artists, producers, songwriters, bands, A&Rs, execs will all be in attendance, with an estimated crowd of 5-600 people. Make sure you're there if you're in or around the ATL and do ANYTHING related to music. The details:

What: "I dO Music" networking event

"The Relationship" (Chopped & Screwed) by DJ Uneek

I'm a southern boy regardless of where I'm from, and anyone from/in the South (that I've ever met at least) HAS to respect some good chopped & screwed music (RIP DJ Screw).  With the crazy response that "The Relationship" has been getting, which is slowly beginning a snowball effect leading into some pretty big things, it's only right that FNFG's own, DJ Uneek (@UneekSound), put his DJ'ing expertise to work and even further the masterpiece.  I HOPE you didn't just think "Lead by Example" was the entirety of DJ Uneek's talent!  I must say, he did a damn good job w/ this one and I'm happy to have him bless the project.  It's crazy hearing my voice C&S, but I think you'll like this one. 

Pour up (WHATEVER it is you pour), light up, and sit back... 

This is only the beginning, World. Watch what we do next!

Can You Spare 99 cents?

Wassup folks... we finally got "Met Her On Twitter" up on iTunes. So, it would mean a lot to LCD, Lil Dee and myself if y'all would click on the button below and buy it!

The Contrarians - Met Her On Twitter

It's also available on Amazon, Rhapsody, Emusic, Napster and just about every other digital outlet. Just search for "Met Her On Twitter" by The Contrarians!

We appreciate the love and support!

This is the beginning of history... TRUST ME!



"The Relationship", produced ENTIRELY by LCD. this project is one of those special ones.  I am not being biased, but I sincerely feel like this is a timeless piece of work.  I put a LOT into this project and I feel like it's my best work yet.  10 tracks, each its own level within the cycle of  "The Relationship".  No matter who you are, I am sure you would be able to relate to at LEAST one song on this project. 

I won't talk you up, I'll let the music speak for itself!

LCD Needs YOUR Help!!

From Mr. Bout Dat Money:

For those that don't know, "I dO Music" is THE premiere networking and promotional event for black music in Atlanta... it's held on the 1st Thursday of every month and they have a few performers and a beat battle. You already know I'm tryna get in this beat battle, right??? 

Basically I submitted a beat, and they select the contestants based on quality of the beat and general response..... that's where y'all come in. Here's what I need you to do:

1. Click on this link and listen to "SUMTHIN FOREIGN"

2. Sign up for a FREE SoundCloud account (only takes a couple minutes)

3. Leave me a comment saying how HOT the beat is.... and no, you won't be lying cause that shit is some fiiiiii

That's it! 5 minutes outta your day.... all help is greatly appreciated and i'll try to include you in my Grammy acceptance speech ;-) 

Clif Soulo - Forever Be Hip Hop

Anybody familiar with what I do here (or anywhere for that matter) knows that I only support quality stuff.  This is no exception.  I present to you "Forever Be Hip Hop" by Clif Soulo.  Clif Soulo hails from Oakland, California, and while I've never personally met him (Twitter is a mofo, ain't it) I can say that not only is homie's music on point, he's one of the few real down-to-earth cats that I know of.  Usually just knowing that is enough for me to support someone's work, but if you're still not sold, perhaps you'd like to know that this project is Clif spittin' over some classic instrumentals by Common.  On top of that, the project was mixed and mastered by none other than the mixing extraordinaire, LCD!

Yup, this is that good ol' Hip Hop... 

And while you're at it, check out another one of my favorite tracks of Clif's that I featured before:

Just What I've Been On...

While preparing for the release of a classic project, "The Relationship" (produced ENTIRELY by LCD), I've been doing a lot of working, thinking, recording, and surfing the net.  These two videos have done quite a good bit to inspire my hunger (don't ask why, they just have...)



Ice the Villain on DJBooth.Net

Be sure to check out DJBooth.Net! I'm one of the featured artists, along with some other VERY respectable artists that are makin' BIG noise in the game.  It's quite an honor, and while I could go on forever about how much this means to me, I'd rather spare you and let you just read up.  This is just the beginning, folks... L.@.Me!

"Late Night Special" - Joshua "OD" Mitchell

First thing's first, let's be clear... I am not a big fan of Gospel Rap (and no offense, a lot of traditional Gospel music as well).  At times it can be a bit more of a sermon put to music than I care for, but that's the same reason I don't care for today's music that TELLS me how to dress, dance, and act instead of allowing me to choose on my own... Ya know??

Anyway, that's neither here nor there.  A former Howard University classmate of mine by the name of Joshua "OD" Mitchell has recently dropped a Gospel mixtape called "Late Night Special" (if you listen to interviews on the project you'll understand the name better).  Not only does he have a crisp flow that would be appreciated by any fan of Hip-Hop and lyricism in general, but when he sings on his tracks, the vocals are just as impressive.

This project is not "preachy", nor does it have him painting himself as more Holy than the listener, which I really respect.  Songs like "How Far Can I Go" tell a story of the battle between lust and loyalty to God, while songs like "I Need You", "Outcry", and "Thank You (So Amazing)" are testimonials and messages to the world of his love for his Lord... I can dig it. 

A much appreciated supporter of my music, I've been following his career for a good bit and have seen him continue and blossom over the years.  Please support the homie and get hip to quality....
