From Matt B:

New Audio: G.Huff & Vice Souletric - "Are We There Yet?"

G. Huff and Vice Souletric have quickly become two of the most respected new Hip-Hop artists to come out the Midwest. The Ohio MC/Producer duo made waves in 2011 with their debut album, Where Do We Go From Here?, which featured a who's who of talent such as Guilty Simpson, REKS, Termanology, and more. In addition, Vice will have production on upcoming albums from Scarface, Reek Da Villian and others in 2012.

As a duo G.Huff and Vice are now set to follow up with a new EP, Are We There Yet?, a carefully crafted masterpiece packed with lyricism, soul, and energy. It’s a recipe the duo knows how to cook up so well! Not only do Huff and Vice receive the co-signs of hip hop legends Pete Rock and Scarface (who grace the intro track of Are We There Yet?), they create their own lane with an original sound that is unique yet universal enough for all to enjoy!

Included is the title track for G.Huff & Vice Souletric’s Are We There Yet? EP: http://soundcloud.com/macmediapromo/g-huff-vice-souletric-are-we# .

PR: "Being Beastie" Cancer Benefit September 7th (@dtr45)


From Julianna @ DTR45:

Announcing "Being Beastie" | Cancer Benefit Event | September 7, 2012

The ground in Buffalo is still shaking following the highly successful event, "Being BIG", a hip hop karaoke-inspired, cancer awareness-raising benefit and tribute held this past March. On Friday September 7th at DBGB, longtime local producer-promoters Damon Bodine and Tony Caferro are teaming up to bring you round two of this dynamic fundraiser, and this time around they're calling it "Being Beastie".

Following his diagnosis and now remission of Hodgkins Lymphoma Cancer, Damon Bodine has dedicated his life to promoting blood cancer awareness. "We want to raise as much money for leukemia and lymphoma and create another positive event that contributes to the nightlife of Buffalo, New York" states Bodine. The long time WNY concert mogul has completed several half marathons this year, all leading up to his participation in the 26.2 mile NYC Marathon on November 4.

DTR founder Tony Caferro adds "Being BIG was so successful that we wanted to figure out where to go with it next. In the wake of Beastie Boys founder MCA's untimely passing after his own bout with cancer, Damon and I both agreed it was a good time to pay tribute to one of the most popular musical groups in history… and Being Beastie was born".

GET INVOLVED
100% of the proceeds from Being Beastie will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Who can't get behind that? Everyone knows at least one classic or contemporary Beastie Boys song. Find a couple friends and sign up to be a featured onstage vocalist with local heroes Rhubarb and DJ Cutler, who will be provided the backing Beastie Boys track of your choice. You can even rehearse with them beforehand and steal the show!

Being Beastie. September 7. Doors open at Duke’s Bohemian Grove Bar at 10pm, $5 cover. For more information, visit www.dtr45.com or www.liveforacure.com
