Natia – Blood on the Hypeman (Video)

Awakened by a single minor chord, Natia the God bellows, “Sunny Marley, not another one!” It’s a warning shot. We’ve already been blown away by Sunny Marley’s production chops, most recently with Natia’s post-pool party cool down, “Summer Time”, and “Blood on the Hypeman is no exception.” Recorded and mixed in the RudeTOON Studio by our own Kellen Balazy, Natia […]

Natia the God – “Watch Your 6”

Natia the God definitely knows how to spin a yarn that leaves you slack-jawed and wide-eyed, and his newest song “Watch Your 6” is no exception. The Inglewood-based rapper has a way with words that makes me feel like my entire existence is boring in comparison. He embodies the exact reason I turned to Hip Hop in my youth: I […]

ADY Ft. Marvel the Gr8 – Papi Don’t Play (Music Video)

Her Brian Polar-produced EP blew us away both in concept and execution, and the fact that she’s beautiful inside and out is the cherry on top. We worked very closely in the production of ADY’s EP, with our dude Kellen Balazy in the brand new RudeTOON Studios. […]

Marvel the Gr8 Postmodern Ignorance

Summer’s over, and transitions suck. While Summer is full of pool parties and late night music festivals, fall–despite the lack of weather change in LA–seems to be the time to get back inside, get under the bed (not the covers… straight up under that bed frame), camp out, and contemplate what the hell you got into the last three months.

Natia – Summer Time (video)

I spent most of my youth building the west coast up in my mind, putting everything it stands for on a pedestal I never thought I’d reach. Moving out here I was immediately plunged into the thick of Los Angeles, a city that’s over-saturated with music, art, parties, and the most beautiful and interesting people around every corner. It’s complete […]
