Philadelphia producer Carl Madison pays tribute to West Philly’s own Hip-Hop Icon Will Smith. “I’m da Producer, He’s da Rapper” fuses Will’s classic flow and Madison’s raw and gritty approach, thus giving us a new interpretation of the Fresh Prince that the fans will appreciate and love.

I’m da Producer, He’s da Rapper by Carl Madison on Bandcamp

The nine-track project with scratches by DJ Sidewalk, elevates the essence of traditional Hip-Hop. Madison cleverly fuses soul, funk, and sounds of keys and bass to celebrate a classic album and an iconic artist.  The rendition of “Parents Just Don’t Understand, “Summertime” and “Gettin’ Funky Wit It” will have listeners reminiscent of house parties and boom-boxes vibrating on the b-ball courts.  While “Switch” will awaken the soul and lead listeners to the club banging out house music. Madison also inserts comedic skits from a few of Smith’s most popular films as well as interludes from Smith sermonizing about work ethic and excelling the craft of artistry.

How did a Canadian Punk band end up on Beyonce’s Lemonade Album?

Some Beyonce fans had a (noisy) surprise when they picked up a vinyl copy of her Lemonade album.

The US singer’s music was missing from a small number of copies of the record and had been replaced with a punk band instead.

Five songs from Canadian group Zex had been pressed by mistake on to the first side of a limited edition yellow vinyl.

Fans expecting to hear Hold Up instead got songs by Zex, such as Child Soldier and Let Them In.

A statement from Beyonce’s record label blamed the vinyl problems on “human error” at a pressing plant in Germany.

“Beyonce and ZEX were not aware of or responsible for the mispress,” said Columbia Records.

“Fans who purchased the vinyl will be refunded and given a replacement copy.

“We apologise for the inconvenience this has caused.”

In a post on her Instagram account, Zex frontwoman Gretchen Steel said she hoped it wasn’t a misprint and that Beyonce was just a fan of their music.

Beyonce hasn’t commented on the misprint, but Zex posted a video of the vinyl playing their music on Facebook.

“Those of you who got the new Beyonce record Lemonade may be surprised to hear what will be playing on the A-side,” they wrote.

Their fans are desperate to get hold of an incorrect copy, saying they’ll be worth a lot of money in the future.

Zex are a four-piece band who formed in 2013.
