I’ve attended the Uptown Sound Clash event in Whittier before. The atmosphere is chill, laid back and the beer selection is pretty superb. They always have a great music lineup too and for their one-year anniversary, they’re bringing out the top dawgs. Ha, get it?
626 representative Jansport J has teamed up with DJ Booth to release a 24-track compilation mixtape titled after one of his signature phrases, Sport Did It Tho Vol. 1. The mixtape compiles previously-released tracks by artists such as El Prez, Ab-Soul, Curtiss King (to name a few) and exclusive remixes. Happy 626 Day to all my fellow SGV-ers!

Back in May 2011, Cov Original Music Producer Jansport J checked in with one of Hip Hop’s premier DJ’s/Tastemakers House Shoes. They spent the evening playing beats for each other, in which Sport also took the opportunity to play him an early version of MoveMeants II. Valuing his honest and sometimes sobering opinion, this was the night that he realized the album was decent, but simply not good enough. He would spend the next couple of months re-working the project until he knew that it was a work that he could be undoubtedly proud of.
MoveMeants II: The Reprise [Instrumental LP] will be available March 20th. Keep up with behind-the-scenes footage, announcements, and exclusive content for the project at the official site.
