Uyama Hiroto f. Golden Boy (Specifics) “Vision Eyes”

This is crazy for me – I was surfing the net and came across this track. Golden Boy recorded this vocal at Nujabes’ house while we were in Japan for the Specifics show, and we never really heard anything about it. Now I see that it’s come out on Nujabes’ protoge Uyama Hiroto’s album “A Son of the Sun”. It’s on a real different vibe than I’m used to, but I think the track works.

Uyama Hiroto f. Golden Boy (Specifics) “Vision Eyes”

My pick from the album is “Fly Love Song” with Pase Rock (Five Deez)

Japanese hip-hop label Goon Trax have hit #1 on the Tower Records charts with the release of In Ya Mellow Tone Vol. 2!!! The reason I’m posting this is because I have a track on the record – “Half Drunk” by The 49ers is produced by yours truly.

Check out the BIG tune from the comp, Chronic Intoxication (Anan Ryoko Remix) by Nieve & Cook. A little taste of Japanese hip-hop….

My new album ROCK TO THIS BEAT is finally out in Japan, and it had a great first week!!! Thanks to everyone who went out and picked up…and made it #1!!!

It also had a great run on iTunes Japan. I had my highest charting single of my career with “Do You Want Me f. Schubert” – we made it to #8 on the Hip-Hop charts. The album made it to #2 as well. I have been very surprised by the reaction. I am very happy to see that people are enjoying the music!!!!

Thanks!

I want to give a big shout to my friend Jun, aka Nujabes!!! The don of the Japanese jazzy hip-hop scene has included “Under The Hood” by Specifics on his new album Modal Soul Classics. I’ve been getting a lot of positive feedback from this placement, so thanks to everyone who has picked up the album!!!

Also, if you like the artwork for Nujabes’ album – the same artist is working on the jacket for both Rock To This Beat, and The Piano Man mixtape!!
