Dame Grease has serious plans for 2016. The producer known for his work with DMX, Jadakiss, and others is looking to set a new Guinness World Record for producing and releasing the most Hip Hop songs in a single year.
“I believe this could be something great for Hip Hop, something that brings more fun to the game,” states Dame. “While the record is based on the number of songs, I think the true challenge and fun is the effort to make the music itself great. I feel as if my track record, whether it’s with DMX or Max B or anyone else I’ve worked with, shows my dedication towards ensuring quality music.”
The release of each song will be catalogued, promoted, and documented from 12:00PM EST December 31, 2015 to 12:00 PM EST December 31, 2016, so that at year’s end the proof of the final tally can be submitted to Guinness World Records. To kick off this historic event, Dame linked up with Dina Rae. Dina, joined by her fellow Technology Affair group member Thunderblair, unites with Grease on the new single “Do You.”
“While most of the music will feature people that Hip Hop heads know of, I also wanted to make this about the Hip Hop community and include emcees who haven’t had their opportunity yet,” explains Dame. “Whether it’s a superstar like Snoop Dogg or a dope new guy who happens to be making songs in his basement, I want them to be able to reach me and be a part of this.”
“You’ll see a lot of people you’re accustomed to me producing for, and a lot of familiar faces who I’ve never worked with prior to this year,” adds Dame. “There are also guys I started collaborating with recently, like Bishop Lamont and Swifty McVay from D12, that I really vibed with musically and want to involve in my attempt at this world record.”
