A short little segment I did for my man 50 Grand Grmm, (who also happened to shoot the video for "72 Dolphins") called Freestyle City, it's a new series that will showcase the different talent around the city of Columbus, and state of Ohio.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, an Oscar O'Malley track is worth a thousand pictures. Mr. O'Malley shows up as "Billy Butcher" this time around and he's come equipped with the proper tools to do work-stretching words into homonyms with more agile flows than the Jamaican bobsled team. The Stoned God needs no hook when he has almost three minutes of explicit poetry over Teddy Da Don's orchestral production.

Baltimore-bred, Los Angeles-based emcee E Major presents the self-directed music video to "Zodiac Freestyle", where he drops lyrics over Flying Lotus' "Zodiac" instrumental. To that end, he finally achieved his dream of moving to Los Angeles, a gamble for an artist with the kind of support he commands in B-More. His 2011 album Better Than Yours had already made Baltimore City Paper’s top ten albums of 2010 – two years after dubbing his Majority Rules album “a classic” - by the time his 2010 hit “Paper Runnin’” started doing the rounds on 92Q, later remixed by local legend DJ Booman.

Music: Beyond Repair - Trayz ft. Jus Daze (Prod by Trayz)
From Queens to Strong Island comes this new collaboration from Long Island's own Trayz, an upcoming artist/producer recruiting help from accredited Queens Battle Rapper & power house MC Jus Daze going in on life's struggles called "Beyond Repair". The hook states "Broke Dreams got me feeling I'm beyond repair, life ain't fair, I say that way beyond a care." These true to life lyrics are some that every walk of life can relate to! Take a listen to the smooth boom bap collab and be on the lookout for more to come from Trayz as he prepares to release his mixtape sometime later this year and stay tuned for the highly anticipated "Walk Twice As Hard" album from Jus Daze!
