early January, Clyde Carson's newest single "Two Step" premiered
on radio stations across the Bay Area. The song generated a buzz in the streets
and the internet, not only because of the hit potential, but because of the dope
production which got people talking. Word got around fast that Dr. Dre
was responsible for the beat, after people believed to have heard elements similar
to Dre's production. Being who we are, Dubcnn had to step in to clear the rumors
about Dre having any involvement in "Two Step". The actual man behind
the boards is producer Neff-U.
Dubcnn spoke to Clyde Carson earlier
this week to discuss the song and get the 411:
"My man Neff-U produced
it. I've been hearing the rumors that Dre did it, but it's all good. That's just
buzz you know?" Clyde told Dubcnn. "I don't know where that started,
but it was Neff-U. He's been doing production for Dre though. It ain't gonna be
a big name for me to work with you. Whoever got beats that sound good, I'ma pick
that. It's the quality of the music that counts, that's why people think it's
Dre, but at the end of the day it's Neff-U. As long as the beats sound good, you
can be a nigga on the corner selling beats. I'ma come fuck with you! I ain't got
no big name producers on the album, not one. The biggest name I got is Kwame.
Everybody else is people I just met and just heard of." Clyde continued.
Now that we shed some light on the situation, you can go back and listen
to "Two Step", because this heater is about to make a lot of noise in
the near future. You can expect more radio and even video play for the song, as
Clyde picked the song as the official first single from his upcoming album "Theatre
Music", due out in June.
"The track ain't really got no hyphy
sound to it, but our music never really had no hyphy sound" Clyde said
about "Two Step". "My whole thing is, I always wanna make universal
music. It really don't matter if it got a New York, Miami, Atlanta, Houston, L.A.
sound. My goal when I got into the studio is to make a universal sound, not to
make a regional sound. To make a sound that everyone and every region can feel.
That's like a no-brainer. When you hear it, it just sounds good, you don't care.
And "Two Step" just happened to sound like some L.A. shit, but it sounds
good to every region. That's the main point." Clyde continued.
addition to "Two Step", he also has a street single getting ready to
drop which is not intended for radio play, as it's strictly for the streets. The
track is called "Don't Get Your Hood Stomped Out", so be on the look
out for the song as well as the accompanying video. Clyde then proceeded to talk
about the guest appearances on "Theatre Music":
as guest appearances, I got Wyclef. Wyclef is a good dude, he's humble.
He just came in there and did it. It was an accident. I was recording in the studio
and he just happened to come in my session. He heard the beat and just got on
the track, it's like it felt into his hands. Other than Wyclef I got Game
and Too Short. That's the only big names I got on there." Clyde
"Theatre Music" is shaping up to be one of the
highlights of 2007. He's just one step away from making his mark in the industry
and making Clyde Carson and Moe Doe a household name. The signing with
Capitol Records and the recently arranged joint venture with The Game's
Black Wall Street aren't hurting either. The future doesn't look too bad
for the Oakland native. As you can see, he has a lot going on. Besides his music
plans, he's also expanding with the "Hyphy Juice". Look for a new flavor
coming out very soon.
Back to the "Two Step" song; don't worry
if you slept on the track, Dubcnn has the song available for your listening pleasure
(the song is also featured as one of the "Newest Joints" on top).
