Influenced by everyone from Nine Inch Nails to Lauryn Hill, Farchild is an artist who defies categorization. Her debut album, Chivalry Has Died, is a testament to what can happen when a person refuses to allow themselves to be boxed in by genre specifications. According to Farchild, “I’d be as happy as a clam if someone popped my CD into a player and said, ‘wow, this is absolute madness, a Farchild kind of madness!’” The former University of Florida volleyball star was getting ready to fly to Puerto Rico to compete in a pro league this winter when I caught up with her to find out more about her music, the life story that inspired it, and why she hid her work from her friends for so long.
In the realm of holiday hip-hop there's little doubt that Run-DMC's "Christmas in Hollis" is king. What many folks may not realize is that it is only one of many holiday-themed rap songs that have come out over the years. In fact, there's a little something for everybody, no matter what genre of hip-hop you may enjoy. There's hood Christmas music, booty Christmas music, even horrorcore Christmas music. In other words, there's no reason for your holiday office party to be so damned lame.

There was a fascinating development last week in the ongoing battle that is The RIAA vs. Everyone On Earth. Tired of taking individual music pirates to court in what usually ends up being fruitless endeavors, the RIAA is now looking to circumvent the legal system altogether by teaming up with internet service providers to get them to reduce bandwith and potentially cut off their services altogether when people are found to be sharing music.

New York, NY (December 19, 2008) - Loud.com, what’s the science? We’ve had a big week here on the site, as the first eliminations in our $100,000 emcee competition were handed down yesterday. After listening to all the completed songs and reviewing each contestant’s video, the SRC judging panel, including Loud.com co-founder Joe Safina, deliberated with host Peter Rosenberg on who should go. Jouce Tha Artist and Yung Jerz, our Round 1 and Round 2 winners respectively, were shown the exit after all parties determined the pair did not possess the superstar qualities SRC needed to see.
While it’s always sad to see a worthy competitor go out on the losing end, Season II of Loud.com’s The Finalists continues to move forward, and the decisions will likely become more difficult and contentious. We encourage you to tune in and watch all the drama unfold, live at our Official Loud.com Kyte Channel, all day, any time! There’s been a lot of tough talk from the competitors up until now about how dope they really are, and Challenge #2: Mixshow Spins, will certainly test how the remaining contestants and their songs fare on air against the ears of some of the nation’s most seasoned DJ’s.
And as promised, we are now able to give some details around our Producer Finalists. AnonymousTwist was determined to be ineligible for the competition because of his Canadian citizenship, so a replacement has been chosen and we will be releasing the names shortly. Their competition will kick off on January 6th and will feature three rounds of separate production tasks designed to separate the producers from the beatsmiths. Watch how it go down!
