Free Download: B-iLLa - "Brothers In Bars" (Host Tricksta)

After the underground success of 'Illa Tapes Volume One', the Cambridge brothers Mistah Biggz and Dillahman a.k.a B-iLLA drop their much anticipated release with UK mixtape giants UK Runnings, the mixtape series that have released official mixtapes with the likes of Big Narstie, M9, Big Dutty Deeze, Supar Novar, LATE, Iron Braydz, Big Cakes, Skriblah from Terra Firma and many more. Talking on their own personal experiences and struggles on life as well as paying homage to life in their home town, B-iLLA are a duo that have a lot to say. Where other acts are too busy just constantly rapping hard bars choosing to push a negative vibe, B-iLLA switch the vibe and create real music with a unique substance, depth and style.

From Matt B:

Video Trailer: Canibus vs Dizaster Battle Royale June 9th

--- “You better come with some f*cking bars! I don’t want to hear no f*cking excuses when this sh*t ‘s f*cking over; no excuses! This is your chance to prove yourself homey. That’s the great thing about Hip-Hop. That if you get blackballed, that if any stupid sh*t happens to you in Hip-Hop, no matter what somebody says to you at the end of the day the power of the word is what remains. So you can save yourself, because aint nothing going to hold me back from doing what I gotta f*cking do to you bro. That’s it, aint nothing going to save you. Nothing—see you in Disneyland bro!” Dizaster

From TDB @ Biz3:

Video: Black Lips Bring Notorious B.I.G. to Coachella

As you may be aware Black Lips once again proved their place at the forefront of cutting edge music culture at Coachella last month when they were joined by a "physical illusion" of Notorious B.I.G. for an unprecedented onstage collaboration, quickly bypassing the Tupac "hologram" (read: "non-physical illusion") standard set by Dre and Snoop the week before.

Luckily Noisy was there to document the event and interview the Black Lips shortly afterward about this trendsetting leap in music performance technology (among those following suit are TLC, Queen, and surely many more to come).
