From Arab @ First Dirt:

Video: Timothy Rhyme x Phil the Pain - "Grown Man"

"In my long search for non traditional rappers, came an angel of sound. With a smooth voice and proactive, positive message, Timothy Rhyme gives us hope that rappers haven't lost the roots of Old Skool sound and morals while 'spitting' lyrics of today's personal issues and concerns. In Grown Man, the single release from Vintage to be released July 3, a story of a young man with an old soul evokes the power of rap. His rap tells us we need to stop hitting the snooze and do something that we can be proud of. I'm grateful for Tim's talent and ability to tell us that we need stop crying about our problems and make better decisions." - Tomera Wineland (UK)

Devo Spice Update - 6/19/2012: New Song! (@devospice)

Hey folks,

Well, I didn’t win the Logan award.  Oh well.  Maybe next year.  But I do have some good news!  I have a new song up on The FuMP!  Well, that’s good news if you don’t mind disturbing mental images, anyway.

“All In My Tights” is a parody of “All Of The Lights” by Kanye West about a reluctant superhero with a really unfortunate power who now needs a costume in order to fight crime.  I got lots of great help from Ben Stahl, Carrie Dahlby, and Chris Mezzolesta on this one and it sounds great.  I’m really happy with it.

Help me spread the word!  Tell your friends.  Tell your enemies.  Blast it at top volume out of your car while you drive through a quiet neighborhood.  Whatever you can do I would appreciate.
