Portland Trailblazers 2009 theme song

The Portland Trailblazer's anthem debuted a couple of weeks ago, and since it was created, recorded, mixed and mastered at True Shine Studios, it's only fitting that we share it here with our fans and friends. Click the video to check it out on YouTube.

A huge thanks to DJ O.G. One, Kev from KDB Productions, Farnell Newton, Izzy from Horising Up Designs, and everyone that  contributed in significant ways to make this project a success.

Jay-Z is Number One

Congratulations to Jay-Z! His new album Blueprint 3 has only been out for a week and he's already creating records. The Blueprint 3, hit number one on the Billboard 200 charts this week selling over 476,000 copies.

And that's not unusual for the rapper, considering this is his 11th album to hit the top spot, which makes him the most successful solo artist since Elvis Presley!!!

Our studio manager's favorite song is Empire State. If you haven't seen the performance with Alicia Keys at either the VMAs or Madison Square Garden...then check it out below.
