Audio: Eternia - Final Offering | A Tribute to Kendrick Lamar's "Hii Power"
Courtesy Sav One.
Eternia returns after a two year 'hiatus' with an epic verse. Unloading a hailstorm of questions pointed at herself, God, her family, her friends, and her very purpose, 'Final Offering' tackles the lows of life, a topic most people avoid with repression and distractions. Eternia dives in, unafraid to reveal her insecurities and self doubt while challenging the very tenets of faith and foundation of family that she was raised on. She is joined by pHoenix Pagliacci, a burgeoning triple-threat in the Canadian music scene, who soars on this track with a poignant reminder to Eternia, and anyone else who is experiencing similar lows, of what "Hii Power" really is.
The time has come! After spending 12 months locked in the studio, pouring out everything I have, I'm excited to announce that my new album is finally ready to share with all of you on October 8th! Following years of being worn down from constant touring, this album, titled The Finger & The Moon, represents a brand new chapter in my life and is the most honest piece of work I could possibly make. As I embark down this road as an artist, I humbly request all of your help during this journey. I cannot do this alone, and am committed to building a community around this music that means so much to me. If you like the song, share it with some friends. And if you're in Seattle, come to my album release show on October 10th at Barboza on Capitol Hill.
The album itself will be available for free on October 8th, and I can't wait for you to hear the rest of it! But for now, here are a few words about Barcelona:
Love can be overwhelming, filled with hope, despair, happiness, and everything in between. It can be everything, and it can be too much. I went to Barcelona 6 months ago, sat outside a cafe on the cobblestone streets of the centuries-old Gothic Quarter, wrote a eulogy to a love so strong that it knocked me off course and turned my world upside down. I sealed that eulogy in an empty bottle of Vichy Catalan water and floated it off into the Mediterranean Ocean. I waved goodbye to my love, sent her off and set myself free.
Today the Stereo Boyz celebrate the digital release of their official debut album "Carz, Clubz & Theaterz". After three years as the Stereo Boyz and countless Mixtapes, EPs and Songs, Mixo and Mic Audio are happy to present a piece of art that has been very carefully put together.

Live Percenters: "Science of the City" b/w "Classicool" feat. Boog Brown

Just weeks after announcing their upcoming album on HiPNOTT Records, the Live Percenters jump things off with the lead single, "Science Of The City"; a record displaying the crew's livesynergy and penchant for obese production unlike the norm. They continue the freshness on the b-side joint, "Classicool" featuring more nickle plated production and a solid verse from ATL femcee Boog Brown.
Warlok returns with “I Just Can’t Wait” featuring Hitman and produced by G Music. The sultry production inhales you as Hitman’s voice guides you through the vibrations. Once you are in, there is no returning. Warlok hits every beat, riding to it and making the song complete. This indie artist is on a major level.
BillCollectorz' Debut Their Self Titled Project via Bandcamp
Mario Batali, Chun Li, and plans of taking over the world. To many these ideas may come across as random nonsense, but for New York based alternative Hip-Hop act BillCollectorz, it's second nature. The group are truly an act like no other; their brand of multifarious and braggadocio "keeping it real" style raps and ridiculous subject matter will have you breaking out in fits of hysteria while realizing the truth behind what they've got to say.

Hailing from Southside Chicago Chi City is undeniably one of the most lyrically explosive rappers in the Midwest. Chi City has inched his way into the music game as a writer, lyricist, performer, and he has been expanding his brand to reach audiences across the US. Unlike so many rappers out that talk more about partying and sex, Chi City’s "Story To Tell" tells the story of so many who strive to make it out of the streets and projects.
