Here’s the new single, “Let Me In,” f/Tank (produced by David Banner & Swiff D) from David Banner’s upcoming free LP, “Sex, Drugs and Video Games,” scheduled to released on 5-22-2012.

“Sex, Drugs and Video Games” is a free LP, but Banner is asking for fans to support “The Movement”.  The goal of “Sex, Drugs & Video Games” is to show the world Urban music is still valuable. And how is he going to do that? Banner needs 2 million of you to download this mixtape for free, then he needs the same 2 million of you to donate at least $1 to the movement; but feel free to donate more, as there is no maximum donation.

And what is “The Movement” you may ask? This movement is to start controlling our own music, movies and content…PERIOD! As David Banner states “We are not simply characters in a video game being controlled by the invisible hand.  Once this donation goal is met, I’m going to shoot a movie that will drop 5-22-2013 and a portion of the donations are also going to charity.  Download this LP for FREE and make sure to support the movement."

REKS Returns With "Straight, No Chaser" on April 24th

“STRAIGHT, NO CHASER” IS ENTIRELY PRODUCED BY STATIK SELEKTAH & FEATURES APPEARANCES FROM ACTION BRONSON, TERMANOLOGY & SLAINE

STRAIGHT, NO CHASER WILL BE RELEASED ON 4-24-2012

Still living off the praise of fans, critics and peers as well as sales of last year’s instant classic R.E.K.S (Rhythmatic Eternal King Supreme), REKS now sets out to take the next step in his progression with his official full length follow up opus Straight, No Chaser. Once again teaming up with super-producer Statik Selektah, the two combine like a modern day Gang Starr for Straight, No Chaser.

REKS took the underground scene by storm with his debut LP, Along Came The Chosen (2001). The album featured production from a then eighteen year old Statik Selektah and featured collaborations with underground stalwarts: Pace-Won & Young Zee of the Outsiderz, 7L & Esoteric, J-Live and more. The critically acclaimed LP was featured in the Source, XXL, Vibe, and REKS was named to URB Magazine’s “Next 100”. The album’s single “Skills 101” reached #45 on the Billboard Singles chart, putting him on shows and tours with huge national acts. REKS finally released his highly anticipated sophomore LP, Grey Hairs, in 2008. The momentous album featured production from DJ Premier, Large Professor and ten-tracks from Statik and featured collaborations with Lil Fame of MOP, Consequence, Skyzoo, Termanology, Jon Hope and Big Shug. Grey Hairs lead to REKS being profiled by XXL Magazine in their “Show & Prove” section. REKS released the companion piece More Grey Hairs, appeared on Statik Selektah’s Spell My Name Right: The Album and released two more mixtapes (In Between The Lines Series Vol’s 1&2 which were hosted by Statik Selektah/DJ Green Lantern and DJ Ill Will respectively) and both mixtapes garnered thousands of downloads and widespread praise.

REKS has already set things in motion for Straight, No Chaser with lauded appearances at SXSW, an upcoming European tour and the recent leaks of the LP’s buzz-singles, “Chasin’” and “Autographs” which have migrated to every corner of the streets and internet alike.  REKS laments “I feel Straight, No Chaser was necessary to add too the understanding of how well Statik and I come together and make a timeless pieces of work. I feel the album is varied in topic and focused on issues I feel still plague our society; its raw, its real, its refreshing and its REKS.

Georgia Anne Muldrow, in the midst of an East Coast tour that has already seen her perform two dates in Canada, along with a captivating show at SOBs in New York City, is excited to release of her new album, Seeds. The LP, a fully collaborative effort with producer Madlib, is now available via SomeOthaShip Connect.

To celebrate the release, which is already being hailed by Pitchfork as some of her strongest work to date, Georgia is offering fans an exclusive stream of the album's latest single, "Kneecap Jelly." The song, as with the rest of the album, is hinged upon Madlib's room-warming low end and well-placed samples - "Kneecap Jelly" opens with a bending bass lane and wonderfully simple guitar riff - instrumentation that leaves plenty of room for Georgia's powerful vocals, as she sings on the chorus, "I am one/ And I am for directions on this wheel of life/ It is wise to honor all of god's children/ On this wheel we ride."

Continuing her East Coast string of dates, Georgia, along with Dudley Perkins, will be performing tonight in Philadelphia, followed by a show tomorrow night in DC. Full info for the remaining tour dates can be found below.
