Believe it or not, Hip Hop does live here in the Woodland/Sacramento area. I was invited to the "Detox Box" by the very talented producer, Monsrock, located in south Sacramento this past week. I've been listening to Cash Dreed (Monsrock and El Rob) since I recently started working with E.C (See previous work with E.C here) and I've instantly become a fan. Especially since both originally resided in my home town of Woodland, Ca. We'll be working side by side from here on out and I couldn't be happier. All three of these guys have equal or more talent than most musicians you hear on a day to day basis. This is just a start, but "Studio Sessions" will be an on going documentary leading up to shows, album releases and much more. If you like what you see, subscribe on youtube or vimeo to follow us climb our way to the top. If you don't like what you see, give it another shot and see if you like it. If you don't like it after all that, I'm man enough to sit here and say, watch it again and again until you like what you see.
Studio Sessions Part 1
I couldn't wait to get into Mons' studio and see how these guys get down. Fresco, a very talented artist, was first up. You couldn't meet a nicer person. Very easy to work with, he was not shy from the camera and lyrically sound. He seems to do a little bit of everything. We only captured one verse, but after one day of working along side Fresco, I'm really looking forward to hearing what comes from this artist in the future and I look forward to working with him again soon.
On deck was El Rob. Taking nothing away from anyone who needs more than one take to lay down lyrics on a track, but Rob does not need more than one attempt to nail a song. What you see in the video is what really happened. Monsrock made the beat on the spot, played it and Rob laid down the entire song in one try. He later laced the track with some doubles, but for the first take, there are no smoke and mirrors, and no editing involved. That was the real deal. To say the least, the song itself is quite impressive. Rob said he doesn't like to waste time, apparently, you can hold Rob to his word.
I Can't wait to film some more of these Studio Session videos. There are some big things on the horizon for Cash Dreed. I can't mention exact details, but know it is going to be good. I will make sure to keep everyone up to date with what is going on, but please stay tuned, you will definitely not want to miss out on what is coming.
