From MediaContender.com:

Snoop Dogg always seems to be one step ahead of his peers in staying relevant and catching on to new sounds and styles within the hip hop and rap game. Naturally, his ear turned to dubstep, and with that, come October he is presenting “Throw Ya Dubs Up: Dubstep LA Volume 2? with BBC Radio 1?sMistaJam. This mixtape is the second progression from Cashmere Agency‘s partnership with Mr Grustle & Tha Russian on Dubstep LA Volume 1. You can check it out here, mixed by Plastician it’s got an array of tunes from LA dubsteppers and various other champions of the dubstep scene.

Ok, here you go folks…gangsta dubstep is here! And once again, we’re giving it to you first. This is the premiere of the first music video from Throw Ya Dubs Up, from rapper Goldie Loc, who some of you may recognize from his collabs with Snoop as “The Eastsidaz”. It’s exactly what you’d expect, only they’re not only rapping over a grimey tearout dubstep track, they’re rapping ABOUT IT TOO!

B-Ray – Bad Reputation (Album Release)

Posted on 23 August 2011 by Bryan


B-Ray, patient legally known as Ben Ramos, try has had a year of growth both personally and musically that has finally added up to his latest release “Bad Reputation.”  He calls it his “first fully produced self recorded, public release.”


Bad Reputation by BdashRay


When I first met the guy he was just coming off a bender and 3 or 4 days with a group of young nomads he met on the street.  He told me the story and explained how it made him reconsider his purpose/focus in life.  Along with the decision to quit imbibing alcohol, B-Ray decided to start taking his passion for music seriously.  I have witnessed his passion and talent personally many times and its great to see this culmination of ideas finally making into a really sick compilation of dubstep, hip-hop, reggae and the notably cool/comical voicemail recordings.


My personal favorite track on the release is “InTheStreets.”  Using his own vocals to create the underlying “wam wam wam” dubby beat is genius and sounds really cool, especially when combined with the creative lyrics.  The other notable aspect of B-Ray’s music is how real the lyrics are.  Like, they are seriously legit and knowing Ben personally you can hear the real emotions and thoughts that made him write what he did.


I look forward to more recordings from B-Ray and I know he will be playing a few WAPA events coming up.


From B-Ray:

Notes To The Listener,

All these songs are meant to give you a little glimpse into the life that I, Ben Ramos, or “B-Ray” live on a day to day basis, and although you might not agree with everything I say, It is my job to say it, and your job to listen/understand/digest it however you choose to.

Thank you for your support,
