Celebrating 7 Years with Ali Shaheed Muhammad

Fresh Produce is back this month on July 27th to celebrate our 7th Anniversary with ALI SHAHEED MUHAMMAD!

Check out his J Dilla tribute mix from Red Bull Music Academy Radio. ”Hip hop visionary, champion producer, songwriter and The Ummah mastermind – Ali Shaheed Muhammad pays tribute to the one and only Dilla.”

FRESH PRODUCE IS EARLY THIS MARCH W/ DJ YODA!

Excited! We’ve been a fan of DJ Yoda from the UK for years now.

I remember dude left me one of my first mixtape drops on VIP Love many years ago.

Finally got him for Fresh Produce because homeboy’s routing from gigs at SXSW.

So that’s why we’re doing Fresh Produce a few weeks early on Saturday March 16.

Can’t wait!

DJ Format

Yeah – so we have DJ Format rollin through Fresh Produce this weekend.

I’m really looking forward to this one – I think DJ Format is often overlooked by most stateside hiphop heads – as are most UK hiphop djs.  Regardless – he’s a true school dj that should get the respect of the US audience.  His sets are dope and span many genres and he should fit in lovely with what typically goes down at Fresh Produce.  To get amped – take a listen to his Fabric mix – which happens to be one of the most popular of the entire series:

On a personal note – I gotta give props to format for all of his work with MC Abdominal from T-DOT.  When we were throwing the Babysteps events in Buffalo – Abs came through many times.  Both he and frequent Format collaborator D-Sisive are two of the best emcees I’ve ever heard.  True to his name – Abs had probably the craziest breath control of any emcee – ever.   That gets me thinking – maybe we should have Abs and DJ Fase out to Boston for Fresh P?
