Delivering a New Style in a Different Dimension

Ex College Radio star, P-Rice aka Price, has been working on an unexpected project with a planned release for sometime in 2016. P-Rice has gone behind the keyboard advancing his production skills for his upcoming instrumental album, soon to be announced. The album touches the genres of psychedlic synth-pop, chillwave, and hip-hop with the influences of funk.

The tranquil “Dreaming of You” is the 1st single off the project. P-Rice released it on Soundcloud.com, grab a listen here and let us know what you think?!

Loud Voices from Small Suburbia

Massachusetts rapper, P-Rice, collaborates with Seattle Washington’s own Lil’ Kriz on his latest G-Funk joint “Shootin’ Da Breeze” off of Breather II (available for Free Download on Soundcloud.com).

The two rappers tell the stories about their hustle and struggle to reign successful independence within the game. Lil’ Kriz introduces the first verse explaining his daily grind on the streets to the beats; “I’m out here in the streets getting cream like I’m Wu-Tang and try to keep it 100 like I’m Freeway Rick..that’s the way the game goes, trying to make money escaping the plain clothes” .

508’s P-Rice then welcomes the chorus expressing the ways of life, how people come and go and that the hustle must go on; as long as everyone is in peace everything is alright at the end of the day if your eating and paid; “Thinkin of old times, ya know memories, some still livin’ trippin’ some decease, all that matters is we living in peace- world be acting shady, peeps be packing daily”. Throughout P-Rice’s verse he stresses the complications of trying to earn a salary job even after earning a college degree, how the rap game has changed for the love to for the money and how the small town he grew up in “sure ain’t what it use to be”.

Listen to “Shootin’ Da Breeze” featuring Lil’ Kriz below along with the rest of “Breather II” above.

Daily Prompt: Mr. Sandman

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/03/23/daily-prompt-mr-sandman/

Now this daily prompt that I am doing is different from the previous daily prompts I have posted on here. This song I recorded a few years ago is a perfect explanation on how some may sleep (or not sleep) through their long and horrid nights of thinking & what the future may possess. It was recorded for and part of a compilation album of a worldwide internet hip-hop crew I have been apart of for years now..You can download our latest project with the crew for free here: http://www.reverbnation.com/thesoldiersoffortunemusiclabel/album/63177-file-operation-hiphop-by-soldiers

89.5fm WSKB Spring Hip-Hop Concert

89.5fm WSKB Spring Hip-Hop Concert

Every year Westfield State University radio station 89.5fm WSKB put on an all-day concert from 12pm to 7pm. Many talented acts and bands come through to perform, sell merchandise and many do it for the love and fun of it. Majority of the bands lead from punk rock acts to experimental- with a lack of hip-hop. BUT! This year on APRIL 12TH the board of hip-hop director, myself, P-Rice will be hosting one of the biggest underground hip-hop shows Westfield State University has ever put on. Originally planning to have artists from New Jersey all the way to the Southern Cali- the hip-hop show caused much controversy and excitement. Many artists wanted to come out from Mo the General to Johnny Collarossi; but many of the acts that are going to be performing are straight from the underground music scenes of Massachusetts. Such acts consist of up and coming emcee: E.S.P. (who plans releasing his debut Weapon of Mass Production this Spring- it’ll be available for sale at the show), MassILLusions, Sean Byrne (who has opened up for acts like 3 6 Mafia), Koffidential, KR the MC,and Westfield State’s own crew ATI- along with myself P-Rice.

Aceoutrageous: Outrageous Frequency through the U.S.

ace

 

We’ve been gone for awhile but to sum up what has been going on in the world of P-Rice, a few weeks ago on February 19th- I had the chance to chop it up with up and coming artist Aceoutrageous. For those that don’t know who Aceoutrageous is, he is an up and coming artist out of New Jersey but is now over in Colorado and California. Ace called into the P-Rice Show for an interview that went close to if not over 45 minutes well he was on his way to a show in Salt Lake City, Utah for the following night. We were able to discuss Ace’s last project “The Outrageous Life Vol. 1” (download it here on iTunes), his work with President Obama and the HUD organization, Ace’s future project “The Green Tape” (which will be for free download on major hip-hop mixtape sites) and his experiences touring.

Aceoutrageous has opened up for such acts like Mac Miller, Machine Gun Kelly and many more; he has even toured with Big Boi from Outkast. A live and high-energetic performer Ace knows how to rock his crowds and makes sure everyone has had a good time “turn’t up!” Our favorites from Ace has to be his catchy yet soothing track “Company” to his erratic intense energy up-in-your-face track “Frequency” to comical yet melodic club banger “Finger Lickin’ Good”. We would love to have Ace come out and perform for our radio stations concert in the spring but final decisions haven’t been confirmed yet. If not- maybe in the future Ace can call into the show again to chop it up with us and kick some game about any new projects- you guys are more than welcome to!

Much Props & 1love- P-Rice

WERE BAAAACCCCKKKKK- P-Rice Live Cypher

What’s good y’all? We apologize for our inconsistence with updating our blog- but let all lost hope and sorrows go away because now the P-Rice Show is back with a vengeance and harder than ever. If you missed it this week, on 89.5fm WSKB Wednesday Nights 6-8pm (eastern), P-Rice had upcoming artist E.S.P. and his posse come through to show and prove some of their finest skills…spitting fire into the mic! With his peeps Sean Byrne, MassILLusions, and M-A-L the posse puts it down live and on the spot for this freestyle cypher. This was recorded and shot in the station so you’ll only be able to hear the acapellas of the artist (but on radio) you could hear the instrumentals that were being played..such instrumentals spun were by Pete Rock to Miilkbone. Enjoy!

Daily Prompt: Power of Touch

http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/12/06/daily-prompt-textures/ 

The touch of a baby can make anyone smile

The touch of a lady can make any man wild

Touch & Connection is what brings us together

The touch of a loving mother brings a sense of security

The touch of a hardworking father brings a sense of maturity

Touch & Connection is what helps us grow together

The touch of a loving teacher brings a sense of support

The touch of a good friend brings comfort in all sorts

Touch & Connection is what helps us move forth

The touch of a helping stranger in the streets brings a sense of hope

Touch of connection from overseas with a letter in an envelope

Touch & Connection can be experienced through out

Do your part and maybe someone will help you out

It is more than History; It is a Power Culture

“The Rhythm, the Rebel…from the rebel its final on black vinyl,”- as Chuck D. of Public Enemy would say if he was rehearsing the lyrics for his groups, Public Enemy, classic landmark song “Rebel Without a Pause”. You might even say Chuck D. has the perfect description for this genre of art, as it is “Soul, rock and roll coming like a rhino”- with the booming bass, catchy vibes and rebellious tendencies to speak their mind out in this genre of raw poetry- November is the Hip-Hop History Month.

Young & Un-Known

If you have been following our blog for awhile then you probably already know that we have a passion for the music and arts. As a teenager in late middle school and throughout high school we spent hours writing and recording homemade tapes. Talk about some real underground music- we just made music for ourselves and enjoyment. We loved to write lyrical lyrics and keep the “real hip-hop” persona in full contact. Though we still write and host our own college radio show, we haven’t really been in the “funk lab” for awhile but looking back we are proud with some of our- you could say surprising accomplishments.

2010 High School Coffee House Performance

2010 High School Coffee House Performance

Ever since a little kid I always enjoyed telling stories or coming up with creative ideas. I enjoyed entertaining, I loved movies and music and creating has always been a part of my life. As a child growing up and putting myself in the public eye within my class peers- you can believe I was exposed to many different opinions and perspectives towards me- As wouldn’t anyone else who puts themselves or are in the spotlight for the public eye, right?
