It’s been too long since the Young Giantz, a duo consisting of Deuce Mac and Bigg Joe West sons of West Coast legend Playa Hamm, was last on DubCNN!

Since 2007 when they emerged with the banging single Weeest! featuring Playa Hamm, they caught the ear with a string of singles including Truthfully Speak’n, Catch Da Fade, I’m a Dodger and U Can Get It during 2009, all hyping up their Gqcality mixtape which dropped in January 2010 hosted by DJ Battlecat.

Since then they dropped their “#LoveLoveproject with appearances from Titus Notes, A.Gee, Blaqthoven, Andre “Dre Boggie” Wilson, C-Love, Toke Da Smoke, Yung Berg, K-Young, Lokey Tha Y.G. and move over production by Blaqthoven, Battlecat, Phat Beatz, Trio Cliq, Neoh, Epik and others.

Last time out they released “Itz In Uz, Not On Uz” and today have dropped the Eyekon Fotography directed visual for “2P Lane” – sounds damn good to hear Playa Hamm once again – and with his sons! Watch below!

Last year we announced that MURS would be curating and hand-selecting artists for the first ever dedicated hip-hop stage, at Sunset Strip Music Festival.

We shot a bunch of footage for the event but unfortunately it was missing – until now!

Late last year, DubCNN was cordially invited to the Sunset Strip Music Festival, Murs stage. A who’s who among hip-hop heavyweights came out to perform, and DubCNN was in the building. With exclusive interviews and drops from Miss Bliss, Jane Doe, Polo Clubb, Joey Fatts, Aston Matthews, Pterodactyl Jones, RA the Rugged Man, Ces Cru, Speak and more!

Listen to RA the Rugged Man take a moment to tell DubCNN that he feels right now there are “more quality, lyrical MCs in the westcoast today than in New York” – he discusses that in detail, shows love to King T, Crooked I, Locksmith, DJ Quik, and so much more!

You won’t see this anywhere else! Watch below;


25 years ago today Ice Cube released the classic and ground-breaking “AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted‏.” Just after leaving N.W.A. this was Cube’s chance to prove himself as a solo artist – and he more than delivered.

To mark the anniversary Ice Cube had issued the below statement, gave an in-depth interview about the albums social and political impact with XXL, as well as releasing a limited edition t-shirt that will be available one time only!

“It was my first solo album after leaving NWA. Although my single was doing okay, I was still very nervous on this date in 1990. All I knew for sure is that I put my best foot forward. With Chuck D of Public Enemy’s help, I got the Bomb Squad to produce the album along with my child hood homie Sir Jinx. Recorded in a little over a month AMW broke ground with connection a West Coast MC at the top of his game with East Coast producers at the top of their game. Sean “Puffy” Combs told me him and Biggie would listen to AMW religiously before they did READY TO DIE. That’s the impact….”

Show some love by listening to the album today – and then head to cop the limited edition Tee shown below!

Yeaaaa! New music from DubCNN favorite and Empire representer Sly Boogy is unfortunately a rarity these days as he’s incarcerated but thanks to another DubCNN alumni, Brian James we can drop off a new joint!

Sly down the years has dropped The Beauty Of Death EPUp & Down featuring Akon and Let’s Go – and last time out we brought you Owe U Love,” “Who Can Ya Trust,” “Done With All The Favors” alongside Coolie High, Deksterlab and Gseez and its accompanying video -and then in 2013 the Brian James and Tariq Beatz collabo “Power Bars.”

Today it’s that same combo of Sly, Brian and Tariq who combine to drop “Lost For Words” – the track knocks and we hope we get more new music from this trio for you soon. For those wondering how Sly is the quote we’ve had is;

“Sly is currently incarcerated doing well and looking forward to being released”

Let’s hope it’s soon, keep your head up Sly!
