Fashawn & Exile Perform “The Score”

Posted in Media, Video with tags , , , , on Monday, August 24, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Gotta shout out 2DopeBoyz for this one. This is a video of Fashawn & Exile performing in the Hip Hop Official studios when they were the artist of the week. The track is called “The Score”, and of course you can expect it to be on Fash’s upcoming album Boy Meets World. Notice that Exile completely tears up the turntables and his beat in the background goes hard as hell. Boy Meets World is definitely an album that I am highly anticipating.

Fashawn Talks Boy Meets World & Alchemist Mixtape

Posted in Music News with tags , , , , , on Sunday, August 16, 2009 by Tim Althaus

Fash 2There aren’t many up and coming emcees that have the hype that Fashawn has garnered for himself. He’s already got Evidence & Alchemist backing him like crazy, not to mention that he has a full length album coming out that is produced entirely by Exile. Needless to say, if you have had your ear to the ground for the the last year or so, you should know about Fash by now… I read an article on HipHopDX about this guy, and he seems like he is one hell of a worker when it comes to doing his thing.

Fashawn’s aforementioned debut album with Exile, Boy Meets World, is going to be pushed back to October because of personal issues that he has to tend to. According to the article, the fans can expect a lot of 90’s influence on this album from the likes of Common, Nas & Gang Starr. One can say that there may be  great deal of nostalgia attached to this album.

All of you heads out there need not worry. Fashawn will be releasing a mixtape with Alchemist which will be coming soon. This is what Fash had to say about working with ALC, “Hanging around Alchemist all day, you know I’m hearing the best beats you can possibly imagine and I’m writing the craziest shit you can possibly imagine”.

It sounds like we can expect some bright things from Fashawn in the future, this guy seems to be the future of West Coast Hip-Hop right along the side of emcee Blu & Evidence. Make sure you stay tuned, I will have my eye open for any news that pertains to this guy.

Everything that Fashawn has been putting out lately is making me fiend for Boy Meets World very badly. This is the video for the single “Sunny California” which will most definitely be on Boy Meets World. All of the beats that I’ve heard from Exile on this album are top notch, and Fashawn’s hype has been hotter than the sun as of late. I can guarantee that these two are gonna hook up for one of the albums of the year. September can’t come soon enough.

Fashawn Talks About “Life As a Shorty”

Posted in Audio, Downloads with tags , , , on Friday, July 3, 2009 by Tim Althaus


Fashawn is another one of those cats that I can’t get enough of. He has been killing shit on the left coast all over the place lately, and now he drops this gem produced by Exile (as well as the rest of the album). This track will be on his debut LP Boy Meets World which comes out on September 1st. Exile’s production on this track is superior, and Fashawn spits some incredible bars. The thing I love about Fashawn is that his lyrics paint a picture like Monet, at the same time those same lyrics can tell a story like Hemmingway. In this track his remniscent recollection of his childhood is impeccable, and shouldn’t be slept on by anyone.

Fashawn Takes You To “The Outer City”

Posted in Audio, Downloads, Media with tags , , , , on Wednesday, May 27, 2009 by Tim Althaus

20090527-fashawnThis is another track that is making me very antsy. This track, “The Outer City”, is Fashawn‘s latest leak off of his Exile produced album Boy Meets World (god I loved that show). I have a feeling that this album is going to be nothing short of amazing because Fash is really tearing things up, and Exile’s production is awesome. This track follows a great narrative by Fashawn as he describes the struggles of living in the outer city and working 10 hour days. This is a great dedication to the average blue collar worker and shouldn’t be missed. Watch out for Fashawn, he’s going to be doing some major things. Make sure you check out Boy Meets World when it comes out in August.

Evidence & Fashawn Tear Apart 101Barz Radio

Vodpod videos no longer available.

All I can say after watching this video is holy shit. I’m serious, this is one of the best freestyle sessions I’ve heard in years. Evidence & Fashawn dropped by 101Barz and decided to do a mad freestyle session. I’m telling you people watch out for Fashawn, he’s going to be doing some serious things when his LP Boy Meets World drops. As to be expected EV does his thing as well and leaves the microphone battered and beaten.
