GeorgeBushMoney has OFFICIALLY moved into the big time, ladies and gentleman– we are receiving artist submissions to post their work! I know, I know– ” JihaD, a bunch of wack niggas and kizzas flooding ya’ll inbox? I know you bout to shit all over these new niggas ain’t you? Keep it real JihaD, most of these submissions suck, don’t they? Go head fam, shit on them niggas– make sure the Ether is potent and give us some shit to laugh at for the next couple of hours– we feel you.”
And normally, I would agree with you.
However, I personally know what it likes to e-mail your latest project to blog after blog in the hopes SOMEONE will take a chance on your music, say its dope, and give someone else a reason to listen you– Call it the “New Rapper Circle if Life” if you will.*
So I thought I would give a listen and a post to new artists if I listen and I like it, I’ll post it, review, and encourage others to do the same.
If its wack, I may STILL post it, and flat out shit on it- depends what kind of mood I’m in. Hell, I may just keep all the wack songs for the end of the month and have an “Ether the Wack Rapper post”…

*hunts for the fabled Abort-a-song*
Anyway, for any interested Artist or Producer, please send submissions (include a damn picture, website, and couple sentences about yourself– if you making me search for you, you better be dope as fuck, or I’m not bothering) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Peace bitches– I’m bout to go scuba diving with Chris Tucker and Aquaman (c) Dave Chappelle, but while I’m gone, take a listen to the first official GB$– approved artist, the Producer/DJ Ashwan.
Ashwan is an multi-talented Artist/Producer/DJ from Liverpool, UK who’s latest project, Inheritance Wax serves as both a display of his beats (which are extremely dope) and his mixing, and also his art. In his own words:
Inheritance Wax started a few years ago, when Ashwan was working with the elderly in Liverpool, UK. As they passed on, families would come and clear their homes of all belongings which inevitably meant whole record collections being thrown out each time.
Being a dj and producer, as well as nostalgic for the days when you could walk into some ones place, glance at the record collection and book shelf and get a sense of what that person is about, Ashwan salvaged the records and started making new record covers and sampling and remixing the original vinyl to create new art from the old.
The project is heavily hip hop influenced but instead of hours of crate digging, the sample base has come from this limited palate, with the hope that a different and unique sound will entail that also somehow pays tribute to the artists Liverpool roots.
The music is free to download, while the original vinyl covers will be sealed in air tight bubbles for preservation, turning the discarded object back into one of value and meaning. These will be exhibited together with the music over the coming months in the UK and across Europe. Please check www.ashwan.co.uk for up to date information on these.
