Mad Fresh 5 | Translee on ‘Culture Junky’ Mixtape

For those of you familiar with Day 1 Radio and what Maurice, B and myself do over there, you already may have heard the Mad Fresh 5 segment I knock out from time to time. If so, then kudos to you! If not, I’ll be wrapping them all and placing them here for your listening pleasure.  Continue reading


Couple Thoughts | Rick Ross’ Hood Billionaire Private Listening [Atlanta]


The other day, MFD was invited to attend Rick Ross’ private listening of his latest LP Hood Billionaire right here in Atlanta.

The event was held at Chef Sammy Davis’s (of Food Network fame) new spot Sweet Auburn Seafood and the city’s top media came out to see exactly what Rozay had planned for 2014’s fourth quarter. Continue reading

Day 1 Radio | Raheem Devaughn [11/21]

2014-11-23 17.48.08

The guys like seeing me soften up over at Day 1. All good. Last week’s session with R&B/soul, hip-hop tinged Raheem Devaughn marked a moment they won’t be seeing again anytime soon.   Continue reading

Day 1 Radio | Zaytoven, Bobby Creekwater, Senor Kaos [11/14]

A couple weeks back Day 1 had an episode chockful of info and dope stories. Continue reading

Fresh Music | Phene feat. Naj Murph ‘Feeling Good’


Phene can rhyme, that’s for sure. Almost on some throwback sh*t. We love those bars over here at MFD and his offering to this year’s A3C Fest mixtape has him in his element. ‘Feeling Good’ reminds me of my high school years without seeming stale or dated. Continue reading

Fresh Out the Inbox | Matt De LeReaux feat. Naj Murph ‘Done Right’

Yo. I really like this Matt De LeReaux kid. Caught the native Floridian performing at the legendary Smith’s Olde Bar here in Atlanta a couple months ago when Cyhi was in town. Here’s my tell: if at the end of an artist’s live set I’m actually paying attention to, and trying to catch their social media handles? They got me.  Continue reading

Fresh Out the Inbox | ‘No More Losing’ [Video] J Skyy feat. Young Vegas & Hollywood Luck

The newest visual from Jackson’s J Skyy landed in my inbox recently and out of curiousity I pressed ‘play.’ Cool lil’ song about being motivated to go out and get what you claim to deserve. Continue reading

Use Your Eyes | Montreality ‘Unboxes’ Big KRIT’s ‘Cadillactica’ LP

We can’t get enough of KRIT over here at MFD. And before he drops that Cadillactica LP on Tuesday the 11th, the good folks at Montreality have presented an ‘Unboxing’ of the album. Very dope to see the artwork right next to its Silver Surfer inspiration. Peep it.

Fresh Music | Matt Monday ‘Before the Filth’ EP

The homie Randy Roper put me on to Matt Monday years ago when the young rapper was still going by Rightchus. Flow still just as crazy as it was the first time I saw the Charleston native live at local dive Star Bar. Continue reading

Day 1 Radio | DJ Jelly [11/7]

Years ago I met DJ Jelly in passing. Out of a crew of Northerners in the A, I was the only one who recognized him from his avid work in Atlanta’s hip-hop scene, even after moving here in the tail end of the ’90s — the very last year actually.

The thing is: his work reputation precedes him, a great quality.  I think all three of us learned something new this week from Jellybean. Continue reading
