This particular festival will have performances by The Chemical Brothers, Nas and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Boys Noize and De La Soul, as well as FryinginVein.com favorites Phantogram and Mayer Hawthorne & the County.

To promote the music festival, NCMF is hosting a contest for one (1) band and one (1) DJ to get the opportunity to play a 45-minute set at the festival. They are pushing for crowd participation to pick the best of the pack. The entries are in and the voting has commenced. Obviously, we like to share our taste and our pick is the hip hop group – CROWN NATION. Crown Nation is a duo from out of Detroit. The members are FryinginVein.com notable Quelle and Denmark Vessey; both of whom are vocalists and music producers.

Help us get Crown Nation to the top 10 to get a chance to advance. You can vote ONCE A DAY until August 15th. Here’s the details right from NCMF:

Voting
Between August 2nd and August 15th, vote once per day, every day, if you want to make a life-changing difference in the life of one band and one DJ. Each e-mail address will be allotted one vote per day, so encourage your supporters to vote early and often!

The Decision
On August 15th, the votes will be tallied and North Coast Music Festival organizers will choose 10 Finalists out of the Top 20 Vote-Getters.

Gianna Michaels in Dyme Def’s “Do Something” video (NSFW-lite)

This video is posted purely for the sake of noting a popular p0rn star is prominently featured in it. Nothing about this video is pornographic. Nothing about this video is life-changing or inspiring, so it doesn’t fall under the concept of an Audio/Visual Gem. The song is solid and AVN Award winner Gianna Michaels is in it.

Dyme Def is a rap crew out of Washington state and they have a new project called Sex Tape, sponsored by the T.I.T.S Brand (you’re getting how all this ties in, right?). If the sound of this song resonates with you, then you should support the video production budget (Gianna was probably paid $$$$) and buy Sex Tape. Here are the links (Label store / iTunes).

Once you are done watching and/or listening, how effective do you think this marriage of media producers will be? Everything seems to be in place. How do you their respective audiences will respond?

RCRD LBL Star: Homeboy Sandman – Ivy League Hip Hop

Apologies for the late delivery of this post. We took the time to enjoy the Movement festival, which we will have a few follow-up posts coming later this week. That said, we hope this is right on time.

Homeboy Sandman

Homeboy Sandman is an eMCee based out of Queens, NY. He was educated at University of Pennsylvania, which may or may not be the driver of Sandman’s verbosity. Regardless of that, his record The Good Sun (Amazon link) is one of the best hip hop offerings of this year. It drops today on High Water Music. “Yeah, But I Can Rhyme Though” is a track off of it, featured on our RCRD LBL.
