“Nia” – DaVillins & DJ Skizz (Ruckdown | Brownsville) Remix Challenge Submission + Free download of Mr Kuyateh’s Version


DaVillins (Brownville|RuckDown) recently dropped a dope track prod. by DJ Skizz called “Nia”, which is a dope track for the ladies and pays tribute to Nia Long.

The track is on their latest EP #Cashmeredice which dropped on April 7th. To have fun with promotion, they put the word out for a #niaremixchallenge and I responded with this remix which includes a Marvin Gaye sample flip.

The fun part was creating an experience around the production and hoping that the listener is able to connect with it.  Mixing the layers and then mastering was a bit of a challenge but the sounds seem to resonate accordingly.

Let us know what you think of Mr Kuyateh’s and check out their latest release Cashmere Dice.  Bless up


New Music: “Brooklyn My Ninja” ft. MR. Kuyateh & GRA$E

So here’s the deal.  I have alot on the dome with all these shootings, politics and the everyday bullshit that is fed to us through the media.

I wasn’t sure how to express my feelings, but I knew music would be involved.  At first it was just gonna be a track or two.  Then I wanted some spitters on it or basically a dope lyricist that would understand the energy.

Here’s the problem with that…  People aren’t as available or willing to support like one would think.  Regardless of status, all artist these days are in their own world.  One could say i’m the same, though I’d like to think i really reach out and support all movements.

I didn’t want to go through the hassle of asking anyone for shxt cause it would only end in delays.  Not only that, I now understand that my production takes a moment to understand.  Some of it hits on the standard beats that’s easily identifiable, but other rhythms people just don’t seem to understand.

So with that, I figured why not just set the mic up and spit some poetry.  I’m very careful not to call myself an emcee because i’m not and don’t want to be.  I just want my production to be heard, colloborate with dope artist and produce for budget having clients.

Can’t I live lol… regardless, i had fun with this.  And will continue as my opinion matters to my circle so there.  Salute – Mr. Kuyateh
