PR: eOne Music Announce Deal w/ The FiNaTTicZ

(New York, NY) – eOne Music and Knockout Entertainment announce a new worldwide deal with west coast group The FiNaTTicZ.  The group’s first single, the hit track “Don’t Drop That Thun Thun,” is already making waves on west coast radio, with over 300 spins at KPWR in Los Angeles, CA.

Knockout Entertainment’s Ray J says, “I'm excited to get back to music by partnering with eOne on the FiNaTTicZ. I have enjoyed my greatest musical successes with this company and I look forward to the FiNaTTicZ having a big hit with their new single, "Don't Drop That..." I will be there with the full support of the Knockout team to make sure they go the distance.

Eastside LA’s latest underground rap groups, The FiNaTTicZ formed in 2009. Members Killa F, Jayarah the Truth, EZ the Great and Nyce describe their presence on the music scene as a representation of original west coast gangster rap with new school swagger and flavor.

Adam's World Weekly 5/7 - Tough Love & Deep Convos


From Adam B:

I hope everyone has fully recovered from whatever Cinco de Mayo revelry they got themselves into over the weekend. I had a little fun, which was nice after yet another week of waiting for one specific interview to be set up. Thankfully I've managed to arrange and do five other interviews in the time it's taken this label to (not) set up one, so I still have plenty of content for you. Leading things off this week is my interview with Tough Love New Orleans' Miss Awkward, who talks about her early experiences on the show and some embarassing real life moments. I also have an explosive interview with David Banner where he dives deep into race in America and the value of urban music. Pop Shots is all new this week (and I hope you've been enjoying the new, more graphic heavy, format), and this week's Vid Pick is a great clip from one of Cali's finest, CookBook.
 

Miss Awkward Talks About Getting Some Tough Love


Of all the women on this season’s edition of VH1’s Tough Love, Melissa Schultz, aka Miss Awkward, seems to have struck a chord with the most people. The announcement to a boat full of men about her virginity, albeit an announcement not made by her, and her penchant for making the occasional goofy face, makes her a bit of a reality show anomaly - she’s unabashedly herself. While others routinely choose to try to present one aspect of themselves, whether that aspect is based in reality or not, Melissa let us know right off the bat that she’s a virgin, she’s quirky, and she knows she needs some help in the dating department.

This week, with Tough Love New Orleans hitting its stride, I caught up with Melissa to find out about some of her initial impressions when she arrived at the house, which cast member raided her closet, and the always important vaginal acoustics. Yes, I said vaginal acoustics. You must read on now.

David Banner's Master Plan


David Banner just wants to borrow a dollar. OK, he doesn’t want to borrow it, he wants you to donate it to his latest project. He isn’t just asking for a handout, though, he’s hoping to create a new way of doing business, and in the process show the world that urban music, and the urban community, are valuable resources.

Banner is looking for two million people to donate one dollar, or more, so he can put out his next album Sex, Drugs & Video Games, on May 22nd, and the new business venture comes with a new look and a new attitude. Gone are a whole lot of pounds and the normal accessories sported by prototypical hip-hop artists. Instead Banner is being seen far more often in suits and ties. Although he’s always had intellectual endeavors, Banner is now putting his brainy side front and center, even speaking at Harvard University as a part of their LA Riots symposium.

This week, I caught up with Banner to find out more about how his project is about more than just music, why it’s still so hard to talk about race in America, and how he feels even comic book characters have played into all of this. First, however, Banner wanted to discuss a certain part of the female anatomy, and we would have been rude not to oblige.

MP3: L Pro - "Wanna Know"


From Wanja Lange:

MP3: L Pro - "Wanna Know"

L PRO has decided to re-release his album "Vertigo" for free download on May 15th, including a bonus track. "Wanna Know" is the second leak off the album.

Online Stream / Free Downlaod: http://lpro.bandcamp.com/track/wanna-know-2 .

After moving from San Diego, California as a teenager; L PRO entered the music scene with his first record "Uncharted Regions" produced by D-Wyze in 1996. This album featured guest appearances by the Lifesavas, Cool Nutz, Destro Destructo of Oldominion and others.   Ultimately, this album proved to be a well rounded album and received accolades from XXL magazines Adisa Banjoko who noted, "These cats are nice, real nice; from the opening track  Navigation to Four O’clock in the morning and No Matter, you can tell that D-Wyze and L Profound ain’t new to this."  Banjoko continues with... "They have true skills and lace the album with a tone of positivity that doesn’t come off as corny or condescending."
