Blu said he was hyped about the collab in a tweet today. He's not the only one.

Thought this was interesting

 

 

 can help with that. How did Bang Ya Head Entertainment come about?

Just an outlet for me to express myself. Dealing with Stones Throw, they have such big artists on there, and they have so many new artists at the same time. They can never give an artist enough attention because it’s a small team and big roster.

So, yeah, back in 2005 before my first album ever came out is when I first did Bang Ya Head. I just pretty much combined a lot of songs that I had done together for a mixtape, and we did it through Fat Beats. It did pretty well. Then we had to release my first album. And then, I went through years of just waiting on Stones Throw to put out my second album, which was five years later. It was kind of upsetting in a sense, but, you know, I understand where they’re coming from. Labels work as labels. Artists work as artists. They’re waiting for the big buzz. We just want to put the music out.

So, during that transition, I was just releasing Bang Ya Head. It came to where I got toBang Ya Head 3. I was like, “I’m going to release this for real and put the compilation out.” And then with the sale history, it just grew into getting a distribution deal with Fat Beats, and now we’ve got big albums coming. We’ve got that MED, Blu, Madlib album. That’s going to be huge. We just dropped the Axel F. It’s just another outlet for music. It’s just an outlet for fun.

That's one of the most honest and least subliminal explainations on the frustrations of life at ST.

doesn't it seem strange, in light of that quote, to look at how ST has handled Homeboy Sandman since he signed in 2012 compared to how it seems that most acts are pushed? 2 albums and 5 decent-sized EPs in 3 years seems like an avalanche of releases for a ST artist. 

 

But that quote (and the recent PBW line about JW) leads me to question if maybe they didn't like his Bang Ya Head stuff? MED is gone from the drop-down menu

 

And does anybody remember this thing? i don't:

it's in the st store

That may be MED's version of events bc I remember JJ posting sometime in '10 or '11 something along the lines of MED kept changing the sequencing for Classic an how tht was slowing things down considerably.

Definitely agree that Boysand seems to get some special treatment in terms of releases. Maybe his output is greater/quicker. Or maybe Wolf just really likes his stuff a lot more.

idk, Blu retweeted the link to it... I thought it was weird as well considering how MED distnaced himself from the label and Madlib kind of seems to be going the same way, but hey, Blu gave it his seal of approval
