Coming Soon....the new single "Fight For Ya Right" produced by Xing n Fox productions featuring Cee Know the Doodlebug of the Digable Planets will be available on iTunes in 2 weeks. 99% of the profits from the single will be donated to the OCCUPY movement that has risen to prominence in the last couple of months. This movement despite the various factions within it is based on the economic inequality in the United States...so no matter what issue is closest to your heart we all can agree that it is a positive thing to see our fellow Americans stand up for the rights that our forefathers fought and died for.
The perfect storm of political climate and creativity, a clash of frustration and resilience to widespread apathy, a melding of art and the desire to make change in a city/state/country that has been promised so much and delivered so little. You know the feeling. The helplessness at the gas pump. The desperation at a job fair. The gnawing ache in your head every time another bill shows up or collector calls trying to squeeze blood from a stone. You know what it’s like to tip-toe around complete and utter psychological detonation. We’ve all been there, and we are increasingly fed up. We want to change our surroundings but it takes all we have to simply not explode.
tick tick tick…
You’re a daisy chain. A landmine. An IED.
You’re a mother. A father. A student. A human just trying to make it from one day to the next.
You’re a Time Bomb.
And you are not alone.
“Literally I’m livid with how limited my living is.”
Once again the Detroit based hip hop group ColdMenYoung has put together a track that speaks for all of us who know “grinding” isn’t as simple as the radio makes it sound. “Time Bomb” doesn’t prattle on about moving “weight” or driving expensive cars, instead it directs its focus to the struggle of daily living in a city that has seen better days and has little to offer the average inhabitant. This quartet knows all about that, each of the four members leading average lives while brandishing above average verbal talent. Following the success of their debut project, “Champagne Nights/Red Stripe Budget”, ColdMenYoung is poised to make even larger waves with the soon to be released followup, “YSBAF”. They have continuously demonstrated a dedication to viscerally depicting real life in a real way, a mission overlooked in an all too consumerist society.
WORLD PREMIERE! Perfeck Strangers "Ghetto" Music Video
Introducing Perfeck Strangers!
Directed by Andre Rehal, the "Ghetto" music video captures Dan-e-o and Promise as a musical tag-team for the first time!
Veteran Toronto emcees Dan-e-o and Promise are now tackling the world of music as a tandem. It's easy to say that Perfeck Strangers are an unlikely pair, but when listening to their music you would think they have been rhyming together for years.
Both accomplished rappers in their own rights, their union presents a "perfeck" melding of talent in the vein of Hip Hop's most heralded duos, such as Black Star, De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest and Little Brother.
Dan-e-o and Promise have even been compared to legendary tag-teams like EPMD and Das EFX for the way they effortlessly flip lines back and forth with each other.
In 2012, their debut album, "Series Premiere" will air worldwide, with distribution via URBNET Records.
Judging by the number of dislikes this video garnered, it's fairly obvious most people didn't get the joke. If you're among that group, skip ahead to the last 15 seconds. Don't forget to check out some of our many Jean Grae reviews as well.
