Saturday, April 17, 2010 the crabzinabarrel.com family was at the Historical Society of Washington DC for the pre-viewing of the DMV documentary “Bridging The Gap” a documentary on the history of DC hip hop presented by Judah (@JUDAHontheBEAT), Sophia Nelson (@TheHistorianDMV), and Dre (@dre_abb_video).
Although the screening was just 20 or so minutes long we definitely liked what we saw. The documentary did a great job of capturing the view points of some of the founders of the DC hip hop scene, spotlighting the achievements of artists like Black Indian, Section 8 Mob and Stinky Dink. They didn’t only focus on the past but incorporated the opinions of newer artists like X.O. and Luegar. Some noticeable attendees at the event were rappers WhiteFolkz and Dana Renee.
After the film there was a 30 minute Q & A session in which Judah, Sophia, and Dre answered questions about the film and DC hip hop in general. This event was only a preview and not the finished product so we are looking forward to seeing the final cut. When it is done you can expect to hear about it here first on crabzinabarrel.com. Check out more pics and video from the question and answer session when you read the rest of the entry!!!

We ♥ Judah. Our very first interview was with the DMV’s own super producer Judah and it was awesome…Too bad, it never saw the light of day (technical difficulties). Judah was also my partner in crime in SXSW 2009..good times.
Judah’s making major moves this year, starting with the Amber Rose Instrumentals. If you didn’t download it when we posted it the first time, download it now!
Now he’s released a video featuring some of the beats from the tape. Let me tell you early, this video is so GREAT! It’s smart and well thought out and visually stimulating. I love and you will too! Enjoy!!
“Headbop” is the new track from my fav Bmore MC Greenspan featuring my fav femcee RaTheMC and my new fav Feevaleo, produced by Judah, who…you guessed it…is one of my fav producers!
You have to respect Greenspan’s hustle; he’s doing big things right now. Already this year, Greenspan has joined the home team hero Wale on the Baltimore leg of his popular Attention Deficit Tour. He’s got the DMV’s own Judah on the beat, and cosigns from illroots, DJ Benzi, and illvibes-dmv.com. His next project, When the Sky Turns Green, is due out August 11 and is already buzzing through the blogosphere. Check out Headbop here or by clicking the photo. Then go over to hear Allhiphop.com featured Greenspan’s single “Who Got the Jazz” from his freshmen effort Got Green?

Also be on the lookout for RaTheMC who’ll be on the Generation Next tour with M1 Platoon, which stops in DC on August 8th at Expo.
I’m loving the hell out this project. I liked how Judah taught us some history on Go-Go. Downlaod this mixtape and you will see how the music industry has been stealing Go-Go music from the DMV for ages.
