Chicago is full of DOPE creatives. It’s amazing to get to know them & their journey. We got to talk to a POD homie about his work in music!

What’s up DJ Scend! Thanks for talking to POD today! What’s good?! Tell us about you & what you do!

I have a radio show called The Hip Hop Project run by myself and a few close people of mine. And most recently became co-owner of a company called DJs Are Not Jukeboxes Continue Reading

A-Villa – The Colosseum (Featuring Big K.R.I.T., Termanology, Inspectah Deck)

posted by Alex October 7, 2014

WOW! A-Villa completely snapped with this joint! The Chicago native brought together three lyrical warriors, Big K.R.I.T., Termanology, and Inspectah Deck to “The Colosseum”. It looks like the homie DJ Scend did some work on the track as well. Make sure to circle November 4th on your calendar, as Carry On Tradition will be dropping via Closed Sessions. “The Colosseum” was premiered on XXL. and got A-Villa’s commentary on the track.

I met K.R.I.T. at a meet & greet before a show he had in Chicago. I introduced myself, told him about my project, and gave him a beat CD. The next day, I got an email with his verse over this particular beat, which I never would’ve thought K.R.I.T. would pick. But it shows his versatility as an artist and his ability to stand out on any type of record.  I then sent it to Termanology, who I’m a fan of and knew he would kill it. But I didn’t anticipate him laying down one of my favorite verses on the album.  Then with Inspectah Deck, I had sent him a different beat and asked for that “Triumph” & “Above The Clouds” type of feel, which he definitely delivered on and made it easy to tie everything together. However, I had lost the scratches I had previously done before my turntables broke. So at the last minute, I had the homie DJ Scend re-do what I had lost. However, he added his own flavor to it and even improved upon what I had originally intended.

Overall, I’m really proud of this song and love everything about it…the concept, the intro, the beat, the beat switch up, the verses, the DJ cuts, and outro. It’s just a hard rap record and is the essence of Hip Hop…good beats & rhymes.

posted by Oscar May 29, 2013

Kinto Sol

Last Friday, May 24th, legendary Chicano Rap group, Kinto Sol, took over Chicago’s The Shrine. While The Shrine is best known for its place in Chicago’s Hip Hop culture, this time it hosted a night that featured a Latin twist to the genre.  With a good combination of a classic act and young talent, Chicago’s South Loop was witness to a great, fun night of Latin Hip Hop.

The veteran Latin rappers headlined a bill that included mostly local acts like Serpientes y Piramides, Scheme with DJ Scend, and Esohel with Ricky Dubs. Hit the jump and check out clips we took of each performance in order in which they appeared. Also, below the performances, you will find some hi-def pics from that night.
