As apart of the Tennessee hip hop collective The House (w/ Rikki Blu, Isaiah Rashad and Michael Da Vinci), BLKSunChild is still making a name for himself. He recently released his latest track "For A.M." (prod. The Entreproducers) which is a piano-driven expression of late-night thinking and the seclusive feeling it can give, especially at an iffy time in your life.

White Plains, New York rapper Stan Ipcus is pleased to present his debut album Local Legend. The 10 track album is made up of recordings that span the last decade and have never been officially released, and not only showcase his unique, suburban New York street style and production, but they also tell the story of his life as a semi-pro rapper turned husband/father of two young boys. His story is unique in that through his various highlights, successes, and affiliations, Stan got a healthy taste of rap stardom without ever leaving home to become a full-time rap artist. Local Legend is now available for purchase through all major digital retailers.
I have spent the last year rediscovering my creative compass. Today, I'm sharing that process with you all. The Finger & The Moon.
At 9am this morning, I released a record into the world that is the most truly honest and sincere thing I have ever created.
I'm nervous. I'm scared. I'm vulnerable.
But I have incredible faith in the art I have made. I have faith in its humanity. And I am grateful for the chance to share it with you all.
I have no label behind me. Just me and a couple of incredible friends that helped me turn these ideas into something beautiful.
Today, October 8th, 2013, I'm presenting you with The Finger & The Moon. A free full length record. A statement of purpose and a collection of music that took me almost 31 years to get comfortable enough to share with the world. I really hope you enjoy it.

At first glance most would think a skinny, blue-eyed hipster looking dude in a flannel with obnoxious Nike’s to match, would be in a post-electro indie-band. But this is the 90’s for the third time and one of rap’s most exciting new voices, ECID, is not your average newsstand heartthrob. Minneapolis native Jason Mckenzie, an only child raised by a single-mom, had a lot of time to himself growing up. But he was never bored. Ever. He started writing songs at age 13, released his first “album” before his 18th birthday and hasn’t stopped since. Released earlier this year, Post Euphoria volume 1 brought Ecid’s true charm to the surface with sexier beats and punchlines on steroids (and kush).
New York city emcee and producer Deca and his side kick Tibo are at it again in the second equally stunning stop-motion video for the track "Gabriel Ratchet," the sequel to his first video "Breadcrumbs." This time around the two are separated from each other after doing battle with an evil magician. Deca wakes up to find himself in an inner city maze in the real world, while Tibo try's to find his way out of a labyrinth in the imaginal plane. The story revolves around the two trying to find their way back to each other and ultimately pulling each other through a portal to a new dimension.
