Directed and edited by XCON of Will X Movement, "Worldwide Vapors" is the second video from Dan-e-o's "Immortal" EP (actually, it's the third if you count "Serial Killer"). Featuring Canadian lyrical legends, Big Kish and Maestro Fresh Wes, "Worldwide Vapors" is a modern take on the "Vapors" cut originally recorded and released by Biz Markie.
Check out "Can't Take It," the latest release from Topiq the Smooth Prophet's upcoming album Out Of Questions. The track is produced by AltAir.
From Topiq The Smooth Prophet:
The idea behind this record is to not be afraid to be yourself on an explosive level. Don't worry about class, race, sex, or any other made up category people try to use to separate each other. If there are others that can't take it, then they are better off just letting it go. The idea behind the album is that you learn out of questioning, until you are out of questions.
Album: Azariah From (Young Black And Gifted) Modern Day Rage
Modern Day Rage LP written by Darius Franklin aka Azariah. This album was produced entirely by the legendary International DJ Ease it features Harvey Who, Arli Sulleman III aka Nu Breed or AS3, and C. Soul Love.

Video: Shabaam Sahdeeq, Skeezo & Mic Handz join Alterbeats on "Grustle"
Although The Tuckerman Hall Psychiatric Center in Middletown, New York may be abandoned, it seems as if the 140 year old facility might have acquired a few new inpatients with the arrival of Shabaam Sahdeeq (S-Dub), Skeezo and Mic Handz. The trio put on a clinical demonstration of how to properly grind and hustle amidst the insanity of the modern day rap game, with "Grustle," the debut video off French producer Alterbeats' sophomore compilation LP, Class Struggle.
Filmed partially on Haight Street in San Francisco and in Berkeley, the video director Aris Jerome takes viewers on a journey through the sun-drenched California streets showing everyday people. Backed with the chillest, grooviest, most Earl Klugh-iest beats from Trackademics, the song represents Su and HBK Gang's aura to a T; they are understated and effortlessly chill.
Says Trackademicks, "Su and HBK are some of the coolest dudes, not just cool in the hip, swagger out sense, but that real chill California cool you see in the movies. That unforced cool is what many strive for and that's what a lot of these girls embody. The song is a celebration of all those female macks we see out here in traffic who aren't afraid to go after what they want."
Kollateral just released his highly-anticipated EP "Phoenix." Following the featured single and music video for "Elevated Nights," the EP showcases the young 20 year old's songwriting ability and unique flow. The 10 tracks on the EP boast production from producer friends in Chicago and North Carolina, and co-produced by Kollateral and fellow wax team members.
To keep up the momentum of the EP, Kollateral spit a quick 16 for the Teambackpack.net cypher submissions. Evident in the video and his EP, Kollateral has a unique & undeniably refined skillset in both lyrical and cypher dimensions.
TECH N9NE possesses his own perception of therapy, and thatís codified in his new metal-tinged, aggressive 11-track 2013 EP, Therapy, hitting stores November 5th via Strange Music. You can pre-order Therapy via iTunes at this link. Therapy is produced by legendary rock producer Ross Robinson (Korn, Slipknot) to achieve a hard-hitting, instrument-driven sound unlike anything else heíd previously done over the course of thirteen full-length studio albums. Top-notch musicians such as Wes Borland of Limp Bizkit and Glassjawís Sammy Siegler built the sonic foundation for many of the tracks alongside longtime producer Sevenís beats.
In support of Therapy, TECH N9NE is touring the United States through October and into November. See below for all currently confirmed tour dates.
