After a tumultuous two years in the making, Raleigh, NC native S.GOLD has finally released his highly anticipated album The Storm- a follow-up to his 2010 release The Forecast. Though personal setbacks, trials and tribulations caused progress towards the completion of the project to be continuously halted, S.GOLD was able to overcome those obstacles and put together a compilation that is a testament of his perseverance and commitment to his artistry with the title "The Storm" serving as a metaphor for life and its uncertainties.
Official Mixtape Award's 'Best Newcomer' Nominee Razor is back with another superb video taken from his current mixtape release 'Progression'.

Andrew Barber: A Q & A With the Creator of Fake Shore Drive
Courtesy Drank And Dank.
In many ways Andrew Barber is living every die hard Hip-Hop fans's dream. Not only does his musical opinion matter, he's managed to turn it into his full time job. When he created www.fakeshoredrive.com, he turned a labor of love into what might be Mid-Western Hip-Hop's biggest proponent.
While everyone spent 2012 fretting and pondering over the end of the world, 7evenThirty was busy serving up his own apocalypse. Heavenís Computer is one of the finest concept albums hip-hop has produced in recent memory. The Jackson, Mississipi MC spun the tale of Max Redrumís quest to annihilate Earth with the style and attitude of a liquor store cypher.
After dropping the video for one of the more acerbic tracks on the LP, ďWhere Itís AtĒ, 7even comes back around to hit you with the remix. He enlists Sacramento young gun Lee Bannon with the task of reworking some of the most aggressive bars on the album. Bannon pairs 7evenís feral conviction with a hard-hitting drum loop and a cooled out synth line.
Part b-boy, part space-gangster, part novelist, 7evenThirty is exactly the creative breath of fresh air hip-hop needs. Heavenís Computer is available now via Mello Music Group.
