[News] Tonight we celebrate The Come Up Show 5 year anniversary

THE COME UP SHOW BIRTHDAY CAKE

5 Years ago today- April 19, 2007 was the first official timeslot of The Come Up Show. I started doing the Wednesday night/Thursday morning time slot 2am-6am every week. My only goal was to give artists a chance for their music to be heard, to play great Hip-Hop and R&B music I felt wasn’t being represented at all on radio or TV.

5 years later The Come Up Show has developed into an award winning radio show and we just got a stylus nomination for College Radio Show of the year. We launched The Come Up Show website which is home for daily music updates and news. The Come Up Show TV which has gained over half a million views from interviewing artists like Shad, Method Man, Kendrick Lamar and countless other people. One of the special things about The Come Up Show is the great people we have attracted; from our bloggers, video team, marketing and street team, together we helped artists who we believe in. We did the first Canadian interview with artists like Big KRIT who is on his way to superstardom, and we contributed to the culture we love and that is the most important thing.

Tonight we are celebrating at APK LIVE and it’s going to be a great show as Parrish from the legendary EPMD will be performing, Citizen Kane, Angerville and other talented artists. To me this isn’t just a celebration of what we have accomplished but it’s a celebration to what is possible.

I would like to thank every single person and organization who have supported us. 94.9FM CHRW being the foundation to where it all started and our peers, and fans that continue to support us.

Come out tonight and celebrate with us, there will be ice cream cake and great people vibing. Tickets are still avaliable and only 15 bucks.

[Video] Sese & SonReal – “Take 1″ (Dir: G-Dot)

Sese just dropped the visuals today for “Take 1″, featuring SonReal. Produced by 2oolman and Big Pops, “Take 1″ is yet another testament to the progression of Sese and SonReal. I’m excited for both of these Canadian dudes’ futures. On another note, Sese’s sweatshirt is too sick! Be sure to check The Come Up Show as SonReal and Sese drop new projects in the coming months. SonReal’s Words I Said drops April 25th, and Sese’s Age of Aquarius drops in June. SonReal’s free album Good News is also coming soon. Check out the visuals for “Take 1″ below.

[News] RIP Guru (2 Year Anniversary)

Today marks the second anniversary of the legendary Gang Starr member’s death. Born in Roxbury, Massachusetts, Keith Edward Elam began his rap career under the moniker MC Keithy E, changing later to Guru. He founded Gang Starr in 1987, and went on to release six critically acclaimed albums from 1989 to 2003. Two of those albums, Moment of Truth and Full Clip: A Decade of Gang Starr, were certified gold in the United States. Guru also had own solo series with the Jazzmatazz albums.

On April 19, 2010, at the age of 48, Guru succumbed to cancer after being in a coma for nearly two months. He is dearly missed. His music continues to carry on his legacy. Photo credit to Felicia Zarzoso.

[Audio] Mac Miller ft. Curren$y – “Cold” (Prod: Chuck Inglish)

Mac Miller Interview on The Come Up Show

Mac Miller took to twitter earlier today to unleash “Cold”, produced by Chuck Inglish and featuring Curren$y. The track features some seriously chill verses from Mac and Curren$y, matching the Cool Kid’s sythy, laid-back production. “Cold” follows a steady stream of other releases by the Pittsburgh rapper, as he was featured on Maseo’s “I Bring The Soul and He Brings The Funk” just a week ago, and of course, he recently dropped the Macadelic mixtape. No word yet on whether “Cold” is attached to any upcoming projects. Stream and download “Cold” below.
