FADER/Southern Comfort 7-inch Series #7: Get ‘Em Mamis & Hood Headlinaz


According to Baltimore's Get 'Em Mamis, "They Jockin,'" the Darkroom Productions produced track they laid for the seventh edition of our FADER/Southern Comfort 7-inch series, will get the elderly "doing the Yung Joc in their wheelchairs," and our guess is that it might also spark use of the ridiculous superlative "terrawesome" ("somewhere between terrific and awesome"). Over on the record's A-side, the whole Hood Headlinaz crew (Mata, Mali Boi, Dawgy Baggz, Jhi Ali and Gunt, as well as Wu-affiliate guest Rubbabandz) got together for their track "Tip Down." When we asked Paper Route Recordz CEO Dawgy Baggz to explain "tipping down" to us northerners, because we though it had something to do with cars (thanks for nothing, urbandictionary.com), he said it means simply "going bananas." Fair enough. And to wrap up this little present from us to you, artist Michael Genovese threw down some "tienda style lettering with a local Baptist church influence" on a wall in the Chicago Cultural Center and gave the two groups a little free advertising for the record's cover. E-mail contests@thefader.com with your name and address for a copy until we run out.
