Today in the New York Times, the cover story of the Arts & Leisure section is a big article by Jon Caramanica about the new season of The Wire's use of music by Baltimore hip hop artists like Darkroom Productions, Diablo, Mullyman and Tyree Colion (if you need to log in to read the full article, use Bugmenot.com). Jess Harvell wrote an article on the same topic in the City Paper a couple weeks ago (in the same issue as Bret McCabe's cover story on The Wire). Matter of fact, I heard a week or two back about this NYT article from Jess, since the Times used a Mullyman pic that Chris Myers took for my Mully article last year. The Wire's season premiere is tonight, I already watched it once On Demand and heard some hip hop playing in the background of a couple scenes but didn't recognize any songs/artists, maybe Darkroom can hook me up with some of their tracks that are gonna be featured on the show to post here.
THANKS FOR THE POST AL. ALL OF THE MUSIC WE PRODUCED FOR THE WIRE WILL BE AVAILABLE ON HAMSTERDAM 2: THE RE-UP. ALSO, I WANT TO GIVE PROPS TO THE PLAGUE, WHO WERE NOT MENTIONED IN THE ARTICLE, BUT THEY WILL ALSO HAVE A SONG PRODUCED BY US PLAYING ON THE SEASON'S FINALE OF "THE WIRE".Post a Comment
