Video: Scheme & DJ Scend - "TT&AM"

After receiving a great response from blogs, sites and fans for their most recent installment of the Two Turntables and a Mic series, Scheme and DJ Scend are at it again. Today Ruby Hornet premiered the video for this series, which pays homage to the legendary Pete Rock. The video was shot in their hometown of Chicago and with the help of Sense Hernandez of Beast Factory Films, who directed, shot and edited the video, it's nothing less than the great quality work the duo continuously puts out.

MP3: RoQ'y TyRaiD f/ Chaundon - "Bye Felicia"

This title parody of the movie Friday mixes dope beats and rhymes with a little bit of hilarity to create the perfect Anti-Ratchet music to ride us on out into the summer. Figured we'd invoke a little bit of the spirit of Sporty Thievez a little bit!

Free Album: @CoolNutz - The Cook Up


From Audible Treats:

Free Album: Cool Nutz - The Cook Up

Cool Nutz is excited to release his latest album, The Cook Up. The album, which was originally released through retail this past August is now being made available to fans for free download, via Cool Nutz' Jus Family Records.

With nine solo albums under his belt and a career that spans nearly 20 years, Cool Nutz has firmly solidified himself as a true ambassador of the Portland hip-hop scene. Despite remaining active within the larger community, The Cook Up was a comeback album, of sorts, for Cool Nutz, who had taken some time off from the studio when his son was born. "I wanted to let fans and my peers know that my oven was still hot and my chef skills were meaner than ever," says Cool Nutz. "I'm still in the kitchen, cooking up good music."

With The Cook Up, Cool Nutz kept his collaborations close to home, working with familiar names such as Illmaculate, Bosko, Mikey Vegaz, Maniac Lok, and Potluck. "It was reinvigorating - musically - to work with close associates, making dope music," remarks Cool Nutz. "It was the rebirth of my serious hunger to get back in and make new music."

Despite his history - or, perhaps, because of it - Cool Nutz says he's still growing and developing as an artist. "The Cook Up is the essence of progression for me," says the Portland vet, noting tracks like "Tax Brackets," "Black Music," and "Hamptons" as songs that show off his maturity as an artist. "This project establishes my sound and history. I feel that if you truly sit down and listen to this album, you'll see that I take the creation of my art seriously."

Press Release: @Easop's Just Getting Started


From ArtistPR Music Wire:

Press Release: Easop's Just Getting Started

In a scene filled with copycats and wannabe's, there's still some true hip hop warriors left trying to make their indelible mark on the world. Jam packed with in-your-face attitude and an unmistakable flair for honest, unapologetic lyric writing, San Francisco's Easop is your ticket to rap glory. Frequently compared to the legendary late Tupac, this songwriting, music producing entrepreneur is surging back into the music industry with a vengeance and a brand new EP.

Born and raised in San Francisco, Easop ignited his hip hop career at the young age of 17, quickly setting up his own independent record label, LOD Music as a vehicle to release and promote his material. His debut record, The Time Has Come landed onto listeners with the force of an anvil, stirring up conversation about his unmistakable voice and ability to weave both harsh street realities and Christian faith together.

Easop catapulted himself headfirst into success with his first single and music video for "Out The Box," which received critical acclaim and national airplay. The track ranked in the top 10 on TVU Networks, and was also chosen by major leaguer Ryan Freel of the Baltimore Orioles as his at-bat theme song during the 2009 season.

Now he's ready to land his next punch, as the Street Gospel EP dropped on April 24, featuring the next smash single, "You've Been Waiting" followed by "How I Do It." Easop's also putting the finishing touches on his record with LOD Boyz, Reloaded, which is due out on May 8. While drawing more comparisons to heavy hitters such as DMX, Scar Face and Slim Thug, this determined, self-made artist is ready to take his music to the next level while delivering a powerful message.

Street Gospel is available through iTunes, and fans can sample a tantalizing taste of Easop's addictive flow as well as the thrilling video for "Out Tha Box" through his official website or YouTube channel. Follow him on Twitter @Easop for all of the latest news and information.
