Blueprint “Pain” Lyrics

“Pain” from Blueprint Who EP

I don’t let the drums dictate the way what I spit lay
or if the rhythm of it’s what makes it great
I listen to it, then when I hit play
my mind drift into a place 50 years away
I see what would’ve been if i let the pen lay
the Old Me got so many things to say
But nobody listens cause his beard is gray
So he tells me to get back here and seize the day
See, I don’t need peace and quiet
I really don’t like it, it really aint the way
Cool concept,
but hardly inspiring when peace is the only thing you see every day
Now I don’t think we need riots
or all types of violence for things to be ok
But in terms of environment, we need something to fight against
cause most great art can’t exist without pain Continue Reading →

BLOG: “Snitches get……bitches?‏” by Zero Star

So, I was leaving the gym today and I was driving by this school. When driving by a school especially elementary its not unusual to see adults in a parking lot waiting to pick said kids up. As, I drove by the school that is mainly what I saw. But, then I saw this dude in a truck across the school. He looked like he was waiting on someone. I looked back and saw this same dude tip a miller lite can to the head. Keep in mind its 9am in the morning when this happened! So, I’m like ohhhhhhhh shit dude is whylin! Then I thought about it. If he’s drinking in a parking lot across from an elementary school, and he’s drinking in a parking lot across from an elementary school at 9am, and he’s drinking in a parking lot across from an elementary school at 9am in plain view, then maybe just maybe that wasn’t his first beer of the day. So, I thought damn that’s crazy. But, then I thought there is basically three scenarios that can and will possibly play out: Continue Reading →

New Blueprint interview on ClapCowards.com

New interview posted today on Clapcowards.com. Peep the exerpt:

1. At what point did you realize music was what you wanted to do? I’m not sure if there was ever really a conscious decision about wanting to do music forever or anything like that. I come from a musical family and church, so music was always a part of my life in one way or another. When I started actually releasing music in the form of Greenhouse cassette tapes it was really only because I felt like we had to have something for sale before we actually played a show. At the time, I never really thought we would make any significant money off of it and I definitely never thought it would end up being a career for me. I just kind of went with the flow.

Who Is Latimore Platz?

Latimore Platz

Who is Latimore Platz?

Latimore has the voice and swagger of a young Tobey McGuire. Rapping has never been an option. So he spent a few years traveling the far east, honing his abilities on the MPC.

His first producer-tape, ‘Hues of Being‘, found its way into the right hands locally. He participated in a few producer showcases that led to a few producer credits, including Zerostar’s EP ‘Are We There Yet?‘. His follow-up project, a multi-part producer tape themed on the works of Smokey Robinson, caught the attention of Weightless founder Blueprint and is set to be released free online this summer.

Platz doesn’t pretend to be your mom’s favorite super-producer. He’s just a weird dude that knows his way around the BPMs. Platz’s full length debut, ‘Animal Stamina‘, will be available on Weightless late 2010.

The debut instrumental project by producer Latimore Platz, ‘Smokey : Part 1′ will be released for free on Weightless Recordings on Tuesday August 10th.  The project is a tribute to the work of Motown legend Smokey Robinson.  For now please enjoy the first leak from Smokey Part One “3-way”

Welcome to the new site!

hopefully these get your attention!



Welcome to the new Weightless Recordings website.  We said it was coming soon, and now it’s here.   The old site had become too difficult to update and maintain, so we had to switch it up.  Please note the following:

  • work in progress – this website is still a work in progress and there are several things that aren’t complete yet.  please feel free to let us know if you notice something that isn’t working right.
  • User IDs – you will have to register again as no information from the old site was able to be saved or transferred; this includes forum posts and user IDs.
  • Forum & Blog Commenting – you should be able to use the same ID to post on the forum and make comments on the blog.
  • Forum Features – the forum isn’t quite as full-featured as the other one, but we think it’ll work for the time being (and yes, all the old forum posts are gone. we couldn’t transfer them)
  • New Webstore – the webstore is now integrated into the website.  weightlessmerchandise.com will remain active for a few weeks since we’ve got this new greenhouse ep, but after it slows a bit we will eventually remove it and all ordering can be done here.  You can see your order total as you add items to the cart, and we think it will be a LOT easier to use.
  • Webstore Deals – there are more deals in the store.  all apparel orders come with a free cd from that artist.  please take a look around.  We’re going to add a few more within the next week or so.
  • Weightless Twitter – yes, we’re finally on twitter.  you can click on the link on the right to add us and follow the latest news updates there.
  • Weightless Facebook Page – we’re also now on Facebook at http://facebook.com/weightlessrecordings. Add us!

That’s about all we’ve got for now.

Thanks for the support,
