I’m the Rapper, She’s the DJ
Rap is not an all-boys sport and never has been. Piper Carter of the Piper Carter
Podcast and We Found Hip-hop is bringing out a set of performances that will deliver an
all-woman hip-hop show you want to feel. We Found Hip-hop is the organization that is
grounded in offering the five elements of hip-hop for women using social justice and
equity as the platform to stand on.
Boog Brown, Frankie P, and Ideeyah headline the “I’m the Rapper, She’s the DJ”
showcase Saturday October 26, 2019 at 8pm at the Andy Arts. This event is part of the
inaugural Detroit is Different Festival which will highlight Detroit culture.
The performance will be anchored by Piper Carter who will be performing as DJ Peace
Pipe to keep the vibes flowing and a party going. Expect to hear it all from Rapsody to
Mc Lyte, Queen Latifah, and Jean Grae. Giving the audience a call to action to
experience an all-woman hip-hop show built in strength and creativity is an experience
that many never have witnessed.
Boog Brown and Frankie P are emcees that are wielding every mic they touch. The call
and response, bounce, and style of Boog Brown’s show is rich. Her soulful touch on hip-
hop captures the back-packer appeal with the intellect of a modern flow. Frankie P is an
electronic, soul, and experimental sound with beats that need to be heard. Her show is
an experience you don’t want to miss. I’m the Rapper, She’s the DJ will be headlined by
Ideeyah which is epic. There is no way to capture her music, flair, and appeal … but
witnessing the show is essential for all hip-hop fans.

Big Gov “SEE THRU” Prod by Check Varner DETROITRAP.COM EXCLUSIVE
Tragedy struck in the national hip hop scene earlier this year that inspired Detroit’s own BIG GOV to cut the record with Pierre Anthony “BLUE TEARS” Catching the industry by storm this record went viral and had gov all over the country. Months later and Gov is back in his own pocket with the single release for “SEE THRU”. We reached out to Gov to get his insight on his new single produced by Check Varner.
“If you follow my music, you’ll know I speak from experience. See Thru, is just another one of those reality records. I was dealing with some people who thought they could out slick a can of oil, and I saw right through them so, this song came from those circumstances!”
There you have it from the man himself, “BIG GOV” Let us know what you think about the new record!!!
Killz Korner Ty Farris
This week we are ft.Ty Farris with his project “Room 39 part 2” and the group Street Life who are the hottest in the city right now.
Ty has hit the streets hard with “Room 39 Part 2″. ( available at https://tyfarris.com/ ). This is hard hitting street music. I am very involved in the Detroit Music scene and I am here to tell you that Ty has earned his stripes and deserves the accolade of one of Detroit’s best artist. The eastside native has created his own lane and with his producer Trox have provided some griity music to get through a gritty life. This music is a perfect soundtrack of what hood life is about.
Room 39 is 11 tracks of substance, an attribute that is missing from most music that is thrown together nowadays. The mixing and mastering of the songs are excellent and Farris delivers blow after blow of outstanding lyricism and thought provoking punchlines.
I came into this review with my Big Proof ears on and I must say that I am over impressed with the album delivered to my music buzz. with lines like ” I don’t migrate with fly weights, since 98 around niggas that buy weight”. Lines like this stick out to me because if you are from Detroit there is some chance that you have sold drugs before, even if by association. This is just facts. These types of rhymes along with the gritty beats provided by Trox give the perfect soundtrack to a hood adventure.
My fav tracks are “Please Don’t overdose”, “Came a long Way” ft LIL Fame of MOP and 38 Spesh, and my favorite track is “Say my name” which takes me back to the Purple Gang days.
It’s time for me to leave a rating, and I must say that I am biased as a review because I know this mufaka personally. He is actually this asshole on the songs in real life. So for that to be the case its hard for me not to grade his album even harder than I would the average emcee, and i still have to give him 4 and 1/2 tokes. This is good music and I must say that i am proud to announce that Ty Farris is bringing the fire that the streets need in the city of Detroit, Eastside stand up, the boy did something for y’all.
Killz Korner rating 4 1/2 tokes.
The album has been available since July 26th, 2019, and make sure you add it to workout playlist.
