Episode 3: The Hip-Hop of Media Fresh Entertainment


This episode, we are spotlighting the hip-hop of Des Moines' Media Fresh Entertainment. This young group of talented individuals opened up for the 2014 Gross Domestic Product and took the crowd by a storm.


"While several local acts put on great shows, Media Fresh’s performance at Wooly’s blew me away. All members in at least one article of black clothing, looking uniform but not too matchy-matchy, this group of young rappers (some of whom are reportedly still in high school) brought more energy than any other group I saw. With one DJ and anywhere from 3-8 other group members onstage they created a Wu-Tang/Odd Future vibe. They had all the rap skills and precision one hopes to see from an emerging hip-hop collective coupled with the unpredictable, vivacious stage presence of OF. At one point several Media Fresh members joined the audience, dancing with the crowd while cheering on the members that remained onstage. With sick rhymes and dope beats the raw talent of the group was undeniable."
- Cady Colosimo from Band Bombshell

Episode 2: My Board of Trustees

For my second episode, I thought it only fair I feature a group of people I call my "Board of Trustees". These are four people who provided plenty of morale support and good practical advice when I was trying to put together a Christmas album (it never happened) and when I was getting this podcast started. So in return for their wonderful help and support, they get a big spotlight on one of my earliest episodes!

Here are some songs I considered putting on the podcast, but I wasn't able to get permission or just decided they didn't fit. But they're good songs and worth checking out! They're mostly rap songs because I was trying to get a rap song to put on the podcast!

"I.O.W.A. Nigga" by B-Rok
"Cedar Rapids (Won't Let You Down)" by Big Band DBT
"Hooray for Ames" by Smiling Stone Soup
"Hawkeye Yellow 1iA Remix" by Pzy feat Venomisc & Lexcano
"Middle of the Map (Iowa Cypher)" by The Teknitions
Comin Thru" by 816 Boyz feat Jake McDonough
"Vodka Sam" by Big Band DBT
"Iowa State Fair Rap" by Eva Anderson
"Iowa Majors Rap" by Paul Beckman

Added June 10, 2016...

Realized I could a YouTube playlist with most of these songs! So find it below!

And since I couldn't find B-Rok's "I.O.W.A. Nigga" on YouTube, I put up it's Spotify embed.

Also, I present with a video of "Hooray for Ames" that doesn't fit in with the hip hop!
