Los Angeles - Starting off 2013 with a statement, Emcee, Vocalist, Drummer, Lyric Jones teams up with PA native Phene for a new video & single "Reasons Why". This joint has classic 90s written all over it. Shot by KD Gray in the heart of Atlanta, the song is an ode to patience while battling with life's common questions; especially from an indie artist's perspective. Phene's verse takes the the stance of "telling it like it is" and his answers to the music game. Lyric's verse and soultry hook shows the curiosity from a child's point of view, to her now in her mid 20s. The two gel nicely with an undeniable chemistry with much compliment to Marcotiks on the production and DJ Dub Floyd with the cuts.

Blu Gives "NoYork" A Proper Release

Experience an experiment turned masterpiece…NoYork! Los Angeles emcee Blu's oft-delayed masterpiece has been the talk of the internet for years, but has never seen a proper retail release. Now, the album (which features U-God of Wu-Tang Clan, Pac Div, UNI, J*Davey, Tiron, Ayomari, and more) will be released in deluxe CD and vinyl editions, available in stores everywhere on March 26th, 2013. CD includes 12-page booklet plus an exclusive poster, and the vinyl comes in a limited-edition four-LP set with three non-CD bonus tracks (see below). All pre-orders include instant free download.

While Blu has turned in a number of critically acclaimed projects lately, NoYork (also known as York) is his most ambitious project to date. Applying timeless vocals over detailed, textured instrumentals, Blu seems to have placed himself at the forefront of a new genre, melding classic hip-hop lyricism with the experimentation of the L.A. beat scene. With contributions from beat icons like Flying Lotus, Exile, Shafiq Husayn of Sa Ra, Daedalus, Dibia$e, and Samiyam, the album boasts a unique sonic backdrop that sets it apart from his previous work. As Blu explains: "It's not a state, it's a state of mind."

Hey there, my name is Mark Sokolsky and I manage the up and coming rapper by the name of Vaunfe. We hail from Rockville, MD check out our newest single entitled F.D.S 'Fxck Dat Shit'. This track is about the peer pressure associated with the teenage party scene. Vaunfe is back at it once again with his uncanny ability to tell a story through his unique and vivid lyrics. This track blends two specific areas of the rap/hip-hop game, an old school beat and vibe with new age flow and lyrics.
