"Check My Resume!!!"

Lately local bamma's been havin' alot 2 talk bout da De-U walk. Some people been acting a lil' confused bout wut it iz exactly dat De-U does or has done besides just make music. Here's some throwback grindin' footage dat may jog U're memory a lil' & dat's sure 2 make da 40. Watt & DMV outsiders feel even more confused...lol!!! Deez joints started out as just a humble way 2 help kids from da hood & keep da studio lights on. We started by sellin' in da K-Mart parkin' lot at Rivertown & ended up in schools, libraries, book stores, & on BET, NPR, & CNBC!!! Make sure 2 go on www.dmvemas.com & vote 4 De-U Records children's department aka "Edu-Basics" for the community service award....deez joints done touched a lotta lives in da DMV & round da world!!!

The good people over @ MTV have decided 2 go & make dis week...DC week!!! I know, I know,...I'm jai late it being friday & all. It's just I usually try 2 stay away from posting things dat other people from dis area have on their blogs 2 keep mine unique. However I was compelled 2 post dis when I watched MTV last night 4 da 1st time in a long while only 2 realize dat the DC segments between commercials were more interesting than da videos being played on "Sucker Free". They even had da "Nike Boots" video mixed in wit da rotation. The powers that be are showin' our city a lotta luv right now!!! Thanks FTDMVO

January's Diamond in the Rough

Dis is a new monthly on going addition 2 my blog dat I'm starting up dis year called diamond in da rough. Dis will always contain someone or something from any time frame that originated from DC, MD, or VA dat I deem fit 2 shine da spotlight upon 4 once a month. Dis month I choose da LP "Mission IsPossible" by da emcee TrueBless. Dis CD includes alot of bonus material such as photos & printed lyrics. ScholarMan's production keeps you thinking of DJ Premier, 9th Wonder, or a J. Dilla track while TrueBless is inspired stylistically & lyrically from emcees like KRS-One, Rakim, Nas, & Common. Most rappers only talk about da streets, but TrueBless raps about his personal feelings & life struggles of losing his mother at an early age & being a father. On "I'm So Thankful" he writes a dedication 2 his mom describing her death & how her passing has affected him mentally. Bless's LP goes deeper than wut alot of new emcees are offering out here now days.
