We will be having a Skype listening party that day and many of you may already know that was the date that Static passed two years ago. We're going to try making this listening party the biggest one yet, with guest hosts and exclusive music from every Static era. That's right, that means music from Da Bassment, Playa and finally, Static Major.
*DJ Slam Edit: We are trying to get some special guests that were involved in his life to speak on their memories and talk about his legacy. This is going to be huge!
Join us that day at 7 pm EST. Mark those calendars!
Let's have some fun with this one. I would like all the readers to give it a shot and guess who Static was demoing this song for. This gives everyone an opportunity to interact with each other and best of all, we will play the final version on the 25th. So let the guessing begin and hopefully you guys aren't too far off. If you already know who it's for, please don't ruin it for everyone else :)
Much love goes out to Neeze for coming through with this long request from me.
Even though I never personally met the guy, it seems like I knew all about him through his music. So when I found out he had passed, it was difficult to accept even for me, because I grew up listening to a lot of songs that he wrote.
Fortunately for us though, his legacy will continue to live on, so take this time to comment on what your favourite Static song is, your reaction to his unfortunate death and just any memories you have!
Ok, here's another exclusive join for y'all, i don't have a lot of informations about this song, but my guess is the song was a Southernaire Allstars song, cause there's Yaushameen, Native (or J-Bird) on the track, Static doin the hook, i can also hear a little bit of Black in the last hook. The song is sampled, got a little work for y'all, what is the sample ?? It's easy to find... So i'm counting on Neeze to bring us more informations about that song, but for now let's take a listen to it.
Buddha, Tim and myself are putting in a lot of work to put together this Skype Party for all of you. On our blog, we are getting over 100 unique visitors a day, which is continuing to grow. Unfortunately, we've had A LOT less than that add us on Skype to get ready for the party next week. We'd like to get as many of you as possible to come, and the fans are the real reason we are doing this. Please sign up for Skype and add us as contacts and come to the party if you hadn't planned on it already!
The man behind the track "Stallion" will be there! I speak to him a lot; but if I didn't know he was a super talented producer, I would have thought he was just some average guy. He's a very humble person and I'm sure will have a lot of great memories to share with us.
You've heard Willy Will's production on the monstrous "Slow Jams", and you've probably heard his beats' on the radio as well because he's signed under Polow Da Don. So for any young producers, here is your chance to ask someone who is already part of the music industry.
For those who aren't familiar with using Skype, it's a free program that you can download which allows you to place calls to other Skype users absolutely free. There are no charges involved unless you want to sign up for a plan to call people outside of skype. You don't need any type of web cam, you don't even need a microphone to join in. Once in on the call, you can listen in, and there will be a large chat room attached with everyone on the call where you can type out what you want to say. It's very easy to set up, and we are willing to walk anyone who needs through the process.

Slam here again, thanks to everyone who visited and voted the last time Playa was up, but here it is again. If you are not familiar, I'm doing my own personal March madness on my blog for r&b. Playa is up against Dru Hill, it should be a tough matchup. Just click the banner below to head over there, thanks in advance!
In this interview done back in 2004, Nicole Wray talks about her relationship with Missy Elliott and her own music situation. So if you're a fan of Nicole, definitely check out the interview and see what's up.
And check out that acapelle at 4:20. One of my favourite Static written songs ever!
Here is another song from Goodfella and Static. For the people that are interested in purchasing Goodfella's music, he will be releasing an album next week, which will include a lot of the material I've been featuring and much more! It will be available on iTunes soon.

Thanks everyone who took a minute to leave us some feedback. We got more than we expected and it was very helpful. As promised, we've got a treat for everyone coming in the near future. Please be patient while we get it together. Thanks!
And stay tuned because we have more Goodfella coming up. We will be doing an interview with him sometime soon so keep an eye out for that. He was one of Static's favourite people to work with and I'm sure he has a lot of stories that he could share with us.
We are looking for feedback on why you guys like coming to this site. Basically, we are looking for ways to improve the site in the future by figuring out what your guys favorite feature about the site is. In a nutshell, tell us why you keep coming back. Constructive criticism is good too, we just want something that will be able to help us and hopefully we can give you more of what you want in the future.
Oh yea, we got a special treat for anyone who decides to take the time to help us out here.
Here is an interview Jonathan Hay over at dubcnn.com did with Twista a while back as they discuss Twista's latest album.
Dubcnn: Static Major, who I went to school with [both Middle and High School] from Louisville, Kentucky, is also appearing on your album, and Static Major just like Michael Jackson – although not on the same success level, was definitely gone too soon… How did that song come about for your new album?
You know what; we didn’t actually link up personally to do the track. But I did meet him personally before. The vibe was close though, seeing that he wrote for Aaliyah, who also worked around my hometown - - and just being a fan of his music and the things that he wrote. It was amazing to talk to his management and the people around him to find out that he was such a big fan of my music - - and that really touched me. You can tell on the song [Gotta Get Me One] that my musical influence was part of his creation for the song, which came together for [Category] F5. It …
