Minnie Ripperton always been one of our favorite artists to sample. We flipped this sample for our upcoming Fresh Prince Project single entitled "Pretty Stoopid". Listen to both tracks below and be on the look out for the video in the near future directed by Self Hired Productions.

We recently got the chance to sit down with a really cool dude by the name of Paul GT of the magazine VANCOUVER IS AWESOME. He interviewed us and we joked around for a bit sharing some laughs. Thanks to Paul & the whole website for showing us a lot of love; here's an excerpt from the interview. Click HERE for the whole thing!
Yup, that’s right, good old Surrey. That purportedly abhorrent place ‘Vancouverites’ love to hate on is pumping out sounds that rub shoulders with some of raps most classic lyricists and popular beatsmiths. I’m not even exaggerating here, the Fresh Prince Project is an extremely polished concept album that has appeal across hip-hop’s spectrum from backpackers to club kids, and will definitely bump hard in your headphones all the way from Waterfront to King George Station.
Spanning nearly 3 Years from concept to completion, the mixtape represents the groups’ first real release together, and their efforts should garner lots of attention in coming months. The Fresh Prince motif manifests itself throughout the album directly in samples, punchlines and less overtly in themes, all without coming across as corny. We caught up with District 36 to get to know the crew a little and talk about the tape. It is available as a free download online on their bandcamp, and the release party is tomorrow night at InterUrban Gallery (1 East Hastings) featuring a slew of our favourite DJs (our pals the Freshest!), lots of rapping, and a fresh prince themed art show curated by Ephin apparel.
So seriously, for your own sake ditch that postal code prejudice for a few minutes and read the interview / listen to the tape / check the show out tomorrow. Surrey is going hard right now in the hip-hop scene, with crews like District 36 showing that there’s a lot more going on out there other than just stereotypes and that the scope of Vancouver’s awesomeness spans across ALL of it’s municipalities…
I'm amazed! Our homies DJ Marvel & DJ Kutkorners of The Freshest killed another live set, and the homie Mike Rodriguez (Eighties Union) really did his thing behind the lens. Definitely excited to perform when these guys throw their Surf's Up party June 22nd @ Fortune Sound Club.
