Aside from Fabolous doing a session in the neighboring studio, the one thing that hit me was that it was the first time I stepped foot in the Brill Building - if you don't knnow the musical significance of the Brill Building and it's contribution to music... pick up this book... or google it.
While talking to the studio manager, Roz Rosner, he told us that we were actually standing in the exact place where all the pianos were lined up and some of the most prolific songwriters in history layed the foundation of Doo Wop! Entering that building is an experience within itself if you know the history and you have never been.

RH Bless “Bringing that Beat Back” Vol. 1 – East Coast Dedication
Release Date: May 13, 2009
Swift, clever and poignant rhymes over classic old school beats is exactly what RH Bless delivers on Bring That Beat Back Vol. 1 via Block Exchange Entertainment. The mixtape is a dedication to legendary East coast emcees like Rakim, KRS-One, Public Enemy, Queen Latifah and many more.
Bring That Beat Back showcases the Brooklyn emcee’s lyrical prowess over classic songs like Big Daddy Kane’s “Ain’t No Half-Stepping” and Brand Nubian’s “Slow Down.” The 14-track heater hosted by DJ Cool Kev is part one of a two part series which will feature Bless rapping over classic West coast-inspired beats on Vol. 2 to be released later this year.
“I wanted to pay homage to Hip-Hop’s past; emcees who laid down the foundation and inspired a subsequent generation of emcees. Plus I had to grab everyone’s attention and show you all my skills” says Bless about the mixtapes.
Bless is continuing to position himself as a major player on the independent scene with the impending release Vol.1. Previously he had released several mixtapes and street albums including The Struggle, the Hustle, the Prayer, Heart and Soul of the Streets and Power, Passion, Love. He’s also been featured on music alongside some artists like Talib Kweli, Royce 5’9, 40 Glock and Raekwon to name a few.
Bring That Beat Back will be available for free download. For more information on RH Bless visit Myspace.com/RHBless.

Ready for the PHX Invasion, Sha Money's One Stop Shop Producer Conference with DJ Premier, Rza, Q Tip, Pete Rock, Just Blaze, + other power players
My plane leave @ 6:30AM EST and I'm goin thru time travel and landing around 9ish PHX time.
This is the 3rd year in a row us @ iStandard are going out to the OSS to do our thing and bring together some of the most powerful influential and legendary producers in the world, famous or not famous.... together, in one room... Don't believe me ? google it... as a matter of fact check out all your hip hop related twitter friends and see how many are going (I've been on my computer nerd shit recently so please excuse me)
Honestly having a bunch of producers in a room like this basically represents a huge fraternity party.... the reason I say fraternity is because there really is a brotherhood between producers... (male or female at that). We all speak the same language... we go through the same troubles... and we can relate to one another even if we are meeting for the first time.
I am definitely looking forward to this and even though I've been to a million panels... I always walk away having a higher self value than when I left - and that not even in a self amping up sort of way... Hopefully my next blog will bring the dopeness...
If you couldn't make it... maybe you should check out istandardproducers.com and catch up... and even sign up for the site (BIG PLUS it's free for song writers and artists.)
Just to reminise.. here are some shot from last year:
Rhythm J and Swizz Beatz!
