MP3: DJ Touré - "She Like It" Ft. B-Legit & D-Lo

The Hieroglyphics crew has long been heralded as one of the most consistent, talented crews in hip-hop, and while the credit in nearly all rap crews goes to the rappers, each crew has its own unsung hero's operating outside of the public eye. For Hiero, that behind-the-scenes operator is producer/DJ DJ Touré, who is now stepping firmly into the limelight with the release of his own album, Touré's Theory: Session One. The album will be released July 17th, as a joint venture between Clear Label Records and Touré's own 101% Music.

To celebrate the album announcement, Touré is excited to release the album's lead single, "She Like It," a track that features B-Legit and D-Lo. The song, co-produced by Grammy-winning producer Bobby Ozuna, has a classic West Coast bounce as Touré layers horn and guitar chops, a soulful concoction that manages to serve as a perfect match both for B-Legit's smooth baritone and D-Lo's frenetic, off-kilter flow.

Touré made this track with a specific goal in mind: bringing together the old and new guards of Bay Area hip-hop. "My inspiration for this song was to bring different styles and generations of hip-hop together on one track," explains Touré. "B Legit and D Lo had never been on a record together, even though we're all from the Bay and know each other."

MP3/News: Saukrates - "All The Way" Ft. Tasha The Amazon


From Audible Treats:

MP3/News: Saukrates - "All The Way" Ft. Tasha The Amazon + Remix Contest

On August 28th, Saukrates will release his latest studio album, Season One, stateside. Already, Saukrates has given fans the video for lead single "Say I," in addition to pre-album mixtape, The Preseason Mix, and now Saukrates is excited to release the album's latest single, "All The Way." Accompanying the release of the single, Saukrates is also excited to announce an official remix contest for the track.

The song features Tasha The Amazon ("We met a few years ago, and musically, we're on the same wave-length," says Soxx), and for Saukrates, it was with the goal of empowering his listeners that he wrote the song. "I'm just a narrator for this song," he notes, "telling the story of two people who made it – their way, and all the way!"

Saukrates has been looking for the right opportunity to let fans and producers remix his music, and so, with "All The Way" being a song of empowerment, it was the perfect choice. "I think a lot of people, not only hip-hop fans, will enjoy this song," explains Saukrates. "I'm looking forward to having as many fans and artists involved as possible."

The contest, presented by Saukrates' label Frostbyte Media Inc., in conjunction with M-Audio and Exclaim.ca, will give budding producers the opportunity to remix Saukrates latest single, with winners receiving a collection of prizes from Pro Tools, M-Audio, and Saukrates himself. The contest closes on May 30th, and all contest rules and submission guidelines can be found here.

MP3: billy woods - "Blue Dream" Ft. L'Wren


From Audible Treats:

MP3: billy woods - "Blue Dream" Ft. L'Wren

A few weeks back, billy woods celebrated the release of his latest album, History Will Absolve Me. As his first solo release in eight years, HWAM is an unapologetically dark and dense project, a collection of woods' most personal work to date that he refers to as "wholly uncompromising." And while most rappers shy away from bearing their soul, History Will Absolve Me shows that it's at woods' rawest when he's best.

"Blue Dream," the album's latest single, and the first since the release of his "Duck Hunt" video, is a perfect example of that. The song was premiered today by My Old Kentucky Blog, which hailed the track as a "claustrophobic gutcheck," an apt description for a song that, according to woods, was inspired by "the end of a long relationship, the movie Blue Valentine, and this period I went through where I seriously contemplated whether I wanted to quit smoking weed."

The beat, produced by Man Mantis, sets the mood with a hypnotic sample and reverb-heavy drums, aided along by singer L'Wren's haunting vocals on the song's chorus. woods, pulling from the concept of Blue Valentine, gives his take on a relationship, focusing only on the relationship's beginning and end. But even as things start smoothly, woods hints at issues, rapping, "I'm hoping you don't ask the wrong questions/ I really don't wanna start lying." The song takes a firm turn towards the darkness in the second verse, as woods raps, "So much unsaid/ We only keep it real when we're joking... Somewhere along the line/ We stopped trying and started going through the motions."
