Vlada Stojanovic does it again! The Serbian DJ with an international following makes his presence felt on mixcloud.com, one of the most trusted sites in the world for DJ’s and music lovers. This time he does it with his new mixtape “Thank You Detroit” which features nothing but Detroit music, and the most beautiful part of it all is that he comes from a place that is very far from Detroit, not even on the same continent. In the description of the mixtape Vlada writes..
“When “Rebirth Of Detroit” was released few years ago I got familiar with Detroit Hip Hop for the first time. This might sound crazy but I live in Valjevo, Serbia and that is other part of the planet. It was very hard to do my research. I always thought that Detroit Hip Hop has Eminem, Dilla, Proof and maybe two more names, but I was sooooooo wrong. Anyway, I started doing my research and today I can say that Detroit represent that thing (I dont know how to describe it) that made me fall in love with HIP HOP almost 25 years ago and for that all I can say is: (more…)
Two pillars of the Detroit Hip-Hop community who have helped build the Hip-Hop scene in the city for the past twenty years and have definitely reached beyond the local community have come together to give Hip-Hop lovers across the world “A Piece Of The Action”. World Famous DJ Dez and mixtape pioneer DJ Butter are prepping for the release of their joint album on Tuuesday, Sept.16 and will host globally respected MC’s such as Kool G Rap, Elzhi, Pacewon, Phat Kat aka Ronnie Euro, Kurupt, Kokane, Boldy James, SupaEmcee and many more on top of Dez & Butter production.

Until then DJ Butter & DJ Dez have release two visuals off the project, “The Crib” featuring none other than Big Tone, and “Legends In The Game” with Hell Rell of The Diplomats and Wesley Valentine, both directed and edited by RoweShotMe, Enjoy!
Saturday, November 16th is a day that will always carry a warm spot in my memory bank. I have been out on these streets working hard for a few years now starting off at the bottom of the barrel. To see all the names and faces I saw last night who chose to come out and support me and my good friend JMAC was nothing less than amazing to me and was the biggest reward I could ask for.
To all the artist that performed and or are on the project, you made this product that more dope by adding your ingredients to it. Mr. Cliffnote, SupaEmcee, Fatt Father, Jypsy, Mic Phelps, Ron.D, and Konphlict, I thank you all so much for making time out of your busy schedules to help us out.
DJ ill Literate & Crate Deezy thank you for spinnin’ the hot s**t and holding the fort down.
Pauley of Daytwa Clothing, thank you for the amazing artwork and visuals both on the album and on the apparel. You been looking out for me for almost two years now, I rock Daytwa Clothing proudly and I don’t know if I can ever repay you for all your help.
Mic Todd! You are another person that’s been holding me down for over two years now. But this time you were hands on through out the whole Beyond Physics project. you did a great job and I know this album would not be as dope as I think it is if you were not artistically involved.
I have to send a huge shout out to my home girl and good friend Ms. Ellie Sandiego. Thank you for being the life of the party. You will always be my first option and go to person for hosting any of my events! We need to get crackin’ on these valid313.com interviews! Much Love!
DJ Sicari and the 5e fam! I love you so much. The fact you laced us with dope cutz, and came out to rock last night is amazing considering your situation. Much love fam, I hope you enjoy the project and thank you again for giving me a home in this city. Shout out to the Motor City Rockers as well!
Drew & Tatiana thank you for breaking bread and being so easy to work and plan with, also great job on the S.S.S. Skit! Anything you guys ever need, I got you!
Aaron Biggs, what can I say? You came out of retirement to save our asses. We owe you, don’t be a stranger!
Pig Pen, thank you for coming out to HeadNod to play those bangin’ beats you been working on since you have relocated to the forest.
To the visual eye of this whole project, Bink of Cold Capitol Fun House, your work and effort is deeply appreciated and I plan to continue working with you on a regular basis, I’m definitely a fan of your art!
Titan Records family, Chris and Heather, no one has been by side longer than you two, thank you for allowing me and JMAC to work in your house through out those late nights an trusting us and asked for noting in return. Chris my official solo debut album is next, lets hit a home run my dude.
Last but not least… JMAC! Our group is “Beyond Physics” and I feel that we crossed paths for a reason. I met you before you ever got on the Maschine and to have you as a friend before music makes it that much pure to me. It’s an honor for me to be a part of the roots and beginnings of your journey as an awesome beat smith, when you won at The Shelter I was beyond proud. You have influenced me more than you’ll ever know. People have said that I have grown up musically and came a long way from where I was two years ago or so, and I know that is due to being around you and your natural gift of music. You have an ear for how things are supposed to sound and it has made me a way better MC. It was a blast recording this project with you, I can’t wait to see what the response is going to be and I cant wait to work on the next one. You got a brother for life big homie.
Also, to all the supporters that came out last night, who paid their hard earned money on our CD’s and T-shirts, or even just paid the admission at the door. You are my life line, and though it may not mean much to you it means the world to an underground independent artist. Thank you 100 times over!
ON TO THE NEXT ONE…
Its no secret by now that the career of the 7-Mile representative known as Ron.D, is accumulating more and more to being one of the hottest indie Hip-Hop artist to come out of the scene in recent memory. From dropping the two mixtapes (Now Or Neva & U Cant Deny Me) that has given him notoriety, both laced with head nodding bangers and a honest look in the MC’s life, to putting out quality video after quality video, this is the true model of how an indie Hip-Hop artist in 2013 should be grinding and earning their stripes.
