Producer Forty One, a long time collaborator with David Dallas (ie. Big Time, Get Out The Way, How It Is, Dream) has remixed David Dallas's  latest album ‘The Rose Tint.’  In David Dallas's words: "With all the bad mash ups and remixes that happen nowadays on the net, it's a great thing to hear someone who's completely familiar with me re-invent these songs that I've written. Forty One killed this shit. Purple Tinted.”

Rising Tennessee rapper OG Boo Dirty is showing audiences and critics that there is more to southern hip-hop outside of Atlanta. The South Memphis native has garnered a groundswell of support with the release of his latest mixtape, Born a Soldier Die a Vet.

Despite his newfound success, OG’s career in music was completely happenstance. In 2008, he went from doing “all the stuff that’ll land you dead or in jail” and freestyling on the block to laying down a track in a recording studio on a whim. OG has been able to cultivate his fanbase and engage new followers all organically with direct to fan mixtapes and a diligent street team. With no promotion or radio support his YouTube views have reached over 1.5 million views in just over a year. His first track “All I Got” featuring King Azz Star generated 200,000 YouTube views upon release and solidified OG’s place in Memphis’ hip-hop scene.

While Constant Deviants continue to finalize their forthcoming Diamond LP, M.I., the rapping half of the Brooklyn/Baltimore-based duo, is continuing to release songs from his solo EP, Allnighter, which is available on 12" vinyl today via the Bandcamp of Constant Deviants' label, Six2Six Records. To celebrate the release, the baritone-voiced emcee is dropping a track called "Sun, Moon, and Stars," which serves has his third single off the project.

As with the rest of the Allnighter EP, the production for "Sun, Moon, and Stars" is handled by Australian producer Debonair P. The song is actually a remix of the song by the same title off of Constant Deviants' Platinum: The Mixtape, and M.I. acknowledges that the sound for this song is mainly Debonair P's doing. "This one was all Deb P, we sent him the vocals and he did his thing," explains the rapper. "It was cool to hear his take on it." The original track featured a beat with heavy chimes, but Deb P replaced those sounds with a slower, more tranquil instrumental, while still managing to deliver the same mysterious feel of the original. More importantly, the calmer sound allows M.I.'s lyrics to have a more powerful impact, as he rhymes about the struggles of living in an urban environment day in and day out.

In light of “37 SHOOTINGS, 46 VICTIMS & 9 MURDERS” during Chicago’s first ‘warm’ weekend, the Trayvon travesty, 6-year old Aliyah Shell, and in honor of my cousins Ismail & Malik that were gunned down last summer...I felt as though this was the time to drop this song. Shouts to Lupe for helping me paint a vivid picture of what goes on everyday in Chicago and every other ghetto in America. Also, shouts to David ‘D.A.’ Doman & Jim LaVigne for providing us the perfect canvas to paint upon. @MIKKEYHALSTED  @LUPEFIASCO

Atlanta emcee Jay Qwest proudly presents the the J. Barnard-directed music video for "Offiseer", the lead single from his forthcoming album Whiskey & Gun Powder, dropping April 24 on Elevated Press Records. "Offiseer" features Detroit-bred emcee Boog Brown (who released Brown Study in 2010 on Mello Music Group) and Methuzulah (picked by 50 Cent and Common as one of Youtube's Top 20 Indie Artists), all ATL residents. Also residing in Atlanta, Indiana-bred producer Illastrate produced "Offiseer", adding to a list of credits that includes J-Live and Treach from Naughty By Nature.

"The song 'Offiseer' was written from personal experience and frustration dealing with police in Atlanta" Explains Jay. "After writing it, I realized how the song became like my own version of  'Sound of da Police' by KRS-One. So with that in mind, I wanted to pay homage to that song too, mixing the words 'officer' with 'overseer' making the title 'Offiseer'. It is an unfortunate coincidence how this song relates to the recent shooting death of Trayvon Martin in Florida, as well as so many other circumstances in this country concerning people of color and law enforcement. I think it's tragic that we can't always trust the police to protect us."
