30 Minute Mix - Vol. 84

Been meaning to post up this sure shot from my partner in crime IZZE-WST.  DJ Mane had asked him a while back to rock a cover for one of the upcoming volumes.  IZZE uses these as practice sessions.  Here is a flick of the Architect putting it down with the good old No. 2.  No photo shop here, just a good old sharp pencil and some old markers.  Once the sketch was done, he inked it with a thin black marker.  Then he sat down to try to put down some color and with really no direction came up with this 80's Blackbook feel.  A sure shot for sure, can I hear a witness?  LOL and to think that at one point he thought about just doing it black & white.  With no further delay, here is the track info and the download link.  Enjoy!
1. Early Mornin' Tony Murs and Slug
2. Hold Up Marco Polo
3. Let Me Tell You Something Foreign Legion
4. The Funk w/Bush Babies Mane/Oh No
5. Ain't Nothin' Changed Blaq Poet
6. Definition of Nice Paul Nice
7. Oh Really KRS ONE
8. Physical Stamina Jeru
9. Throwback Rap Attack Percee P
10. Improvise Jurassic 5
11. Chubb Rock Can You Please Prince Paul

ZONE in Los Angeles...

The other week ZONE shot up to LA to link up with WST memeber PESA.  They checked out the MOCA Graffiti/Street Art show billed as the biggest show of it's kind.  While there you know ZONE can't and wont pass up on the opportunity to get down.  With just a few hrs. to rock before he had to head back to SD, he pulled out his paint and did what he does.  Wish I had more photos of the wall but PESA turned winnie that day and went over his entire piece.  Should of know that the bar gets raised when painting with the crew... lol
Cklick on photo to enlarge.

Born in the USA

Had to give a big salute to my NorthStar Z brother Cold Chris holding it down for Dynasty Rockers, NorthStar Zulus, & Wild Style Technicians.  This guy is starting to log more frequent fliers miles to Europe than Buttman in the 90's.  This is a 3 month tour, so if you have a chance to catch him your way, check in and say hello to the man.  Hold it down my brother and see you in SD for the Anniversary.

Shaolin Jazz

If you need to change your frequencies or just decompress then I got what you need.  Shaolin Jazz.  Billed as the "37th Chamber" comes compliments of Gerald Watson and DJ 2-Tone Jones.  This is a Mix Tape format where DJ 2-Tone Jones blends acapellas from Wu-Tang with soul full jazz instrumentals.  This project was inspired by Logan Walters’ redesign of Wu-Tang Clan album covers in the style of classic Blue Note Records album covers.  Blue Note Lovers - Enjoy!

5 Yard Boys Shout!!!

Man, it's been real long since someone mention the 5 Yard Boys.  I think even 90% of the so called graffiti cats in this city never heard of the 5 Yard Boys.  Good to know that some actually remembers their roots and their city's history.  Here is a small write up on SD Graffiti Artist HASLE, owner and creator of "Serye Designs".  It appeared in the "CityBeat" mag. and I got compliments of one of my partners in crime SAKE.    Enjoy the article and huge salute to Hasle for the big shout.  One Love brother.  For more information on what Hasle is up too and his clothing line check in at

Pass the Mic to Hopper

Our semi-regular feature in which we talk to local hip-hop heads, who then tell us whom we’re talking to next

By Kinsee Morlan

The man: He’s Ryan Hoppe, but everyone calls him Hopper The scene: Hopper loves ’90sera hip-hop, so you can catch him occasionally at U-31 on Thursday nights for the Generations Party with DJs Cros1 and Artistic. But Hopper’s not a DJ, MC or b-boy; he holds up the more behind-thescenes and underground pillar of hip-hop culture—graffiti. Mostly, you can find him hard at work at his business, Serve Design, coming up with graffiti and hip-hop inspired designs for his clothing line and freelance clients.

The Story: Hopper can still remember sitting in the back of his dad’s car as they drove past the infamous 5 Yardboys graffiti crew. He’d watch in awe as artists like Saratoga Sake and Daze painted big, beautiful graffiti murals.
“It just caught my attention, and I knew I wanted to do it,” Hopper says. “As a kid, I’d put on a Smif-N- Wessun CD or something, put my headphones on and just draw—just create and draw.”

That started in the fifth grade. After building up piles of practice sketchbooks and eventually venturing out to do a few hands-on pieces on the streets—he got arrested once when he was still a minor—Hopper found his niche. His work evolved into his current style of bright, big, colorful lettering. One of his murals can be spotted on the Undisputed fitness and training center building in North Park.
“My style is really unique,” Hopper says. “It’s real young and friendly, you know. It’s not real hardcore and dark-looking at all.”
Hopper designed the logo for local hip-hop event producer and DJ Cros1’s first-ever Freestyle Session b-boy battle and has since been asked to do the design work for break-dance events around the world. He was the head designer at Tribal Streetwear for more than a decade before he struck out on his own. His clothing line has become popular among local hip-hop heads.

The Bamboo Grove

    So I was laying in the infirmary with a broken foot after taking some small arms fire from some wobble headed snipers when I received the call.  The voice on the other side said: “I know you’re in the infirmary, but we got a mission.  Are you down?”  Got to admit I was getting real board doing nothing in infirmary.  “Ride!  You know, I’m down!  Send the Black Hawk.” I replied.  With that said, one minute I’m getting hospital food and pain medication and the next I’m hobbling around the Black Hawk trying to get all my gear straight.  Parachuting in while trying to land on one leg was not fun.

      Once we arrived at our destination, we were met by allied forces from the TFL squadron.  We also sent in for WST veteran SAKE to help with the festivities.  Once the mission was laid out, everyone took position and we went to work.

      ZONE and I headed first into the bamboo grove followed by TFL special force members STYLE, DRANE, & TAL bringing up the end.  Sake was out on a reconosense mission and was to join us later in the bamboo grove.  The mission was short, sweet, and to the point.  Take care of the objective and get out.  As usual ZONE was mopping up anything in his pass and he continued all day till we grabbed him by the collar and pulled him out.   
Bellow is what we left behind the bamboo grove.

     P.S. If you need more info on the bamboo grove site, hit up my man L-Dula (Designated Hittaz).  Perhaps he can shed more light for you on this subject.  Enjoy!
