Musical interpretation has always been left up to the listeners. Question... What would be your musical interpretation for the word and meaning of P.U.S.S.Y.? Better yet what would be your acronym for P.U.S.S.Y? Well...let Judah give you his interpretation.
Judah, the groundbreaking producer that brought the world such talents as Wale, Raheem Devaughn, Ras Kass, Stat Quo, C-Rayz Walz, Tabi Bonney and many more, organically directed this sexy sonic soundscape inspired by the hip hop lifestyle.
Armed with a MPC and vinyl, Judah set off on a two week long escapade to London, Puerto Rico and Paris to creatively put this project together for you. His critically acclaimed "Amber Rose Instrumentals" prepared the ears of listeners for what the P.U.S.S.Y. album has to offer.
Judah's projects are always filled with surprises and this one is no different. Judah add an un released bonus cut from Maybach Musicrecording artist Wale. Top to bottom this is Judah's most complete work to date. Something created for music lovers and musicans alike.

Nick nack paddy wack, somebody just threw Kosha Dillz a bone.  Not only will the DIY rapper pop up at your local venue for an impromptu performance, but he managed to bum rush this year’s Super Bowl! Kosha’s “Cellular Phone” song, as featured on his Beverly Dillz LP, was used on the Bud Light ‘Rescue Dog’ commercial that aired during the game's 4th quarter.  Looks like somebody’s cell phone bill just got a little easier to manage.

"I named my first album “Kid With Raps” with the purpose of not only telling you that I'm another kid that raps, but also telling you my story. I've been holding on to this dream since a very young age. I am now 19, I turn 20 on February 4th and I used to think I would be "on" by this point in my life. That's not the case and I realize now that everything takes time and patience. No matter how hard it may be, I will take my time and work as hard as possible to make my childhood dream come true.

In 3rd grade my teacher told me that I would have to have a "plan b" for a real career. I understand that everyone believes it's a must to have some sort of backup plan going into a field such as mine. Some see not having one as ballistic. While I get it, I personally don't care what people want me to do. People should want me to succeed and by doing that, they should support me. I'm not crazy. I'm just passionate. The fire I had as a kid is still burning in me every time I create something and I want everyone that listens to know that I appreciate them taking their time out to listen to the music from me or my 2008ighties team.

PR: Conscious Rap Music Gets a Boost

Los Angeles, CA, February 2012 – While mainstream rap music continues to suffer from a lack of socially conscious content, there are many lesser known rappers whose music is rich with heart and substance.  Enter Journey Brave.  Los Angeles based S&H Public Relations, who specializes in working with Hip Hop artists, couldn’t pass up the opportunity to sign the Atlanta MC who is an example of what rap music sounds like at its best.

S&H co-founder, Sebastien Elkouby, says, “Rappers with a message in their music don’t always get the proper recognition.  Our job is to make sure that this type of music gets to the people who don’t realize it exists.”  To that aim, S&H Public Relations will be working with Journey on the release of his self titled debut album and videos.

“I'm truly excited about my new relationship with S&H Public Relations and I believe that they are key players on Team Journey Brave”, says Journey regarding signing with S&H.  “I expect prosperous and positive results because of their respect and appreciation for true art. I want the masses to know and fully understand that “As You Journey Through Life...Journey Brave".

“Journey Brave” is scheduled to drop mid February 2012 and will be accompanied by a series of videos.  Look for the album available soon at all major digital music retailers.
