Chuuwee’s Crown Me King will serve as the prelude to his long-awaited official solo-debut, Wild Style, which will be released on 5-29-2012 via Amalgam Digital. Whereas Chuuwee’s previous efforts were hybrid sub-genres he created such as “neo-boombap” (neo-soul meets boom-bap) or “hooliganarism” which Chuuwee describes as Treach of Naughty By Nature meets Wakka Flakka Flame, Wild Style can be summarized as pure 90s Hip Hop, where he is taking the classic elements of the golden era with the look, sound and the feel and then applying them to the present day.

Inspired by Gang Starr, A Tribe Called Quest, Big L, De La Soul with even hints of DMX, Wild Style promises to be Chuuwee’s break-out project, one that will showcase him as being a frontrunner lyricist from Hip-Hop’s new school; while also paying homage and respect to the great pioneers of the 1990’s. “Wild Style is the album that’s going to eradicate weak rap off the face of the map. It is the return of real Hip-Hop. It’s pure and it’s not me trying to re-make it. It’s not me telling you its 90s Hip-Hop; it is 90s Hip-Hop” says Chuuwee.

PR: Mickey Avalon - Second Leg of "Loaded" Tour in June

Courtesy 'Stache Media.

Mickey Avalon has announced a second leg of the "Loaded" tour which now extends into June with support coming from Millionaires.  The tour kicks off April 13th in Tempe, AZ and now totals 43 shows across the U.S. and Austrailia which is being presented by Jägermeister.  Celebrate the release of Mickey's new album, Loaded on April 24th with a special performance at the Key Club in Hollywood, CA.  All fans in attendance will receive a free copy of Loaded.  See below for a full list of tour dates.

Using his life experiences as fuel for his intense rhymes, Mickey Avalon is inviting listeners to step into his world with the release of his sophomore studio album, Loaded on April 24th via Suburban Noize Records.  You can pre-order Loaded on CD from Newbury Comics and receive a limited autographed booklet with your purchase.  Additionally, iTunes is offering an exclusive track with pre-orders, titled "When Avalon Comes."

Free after years of industry red tape, Mickey Avalon takes fans on a journey through the seedy streets of Hollywood. He immediately launches into the journey with "Rock Bottom" and continues alongside Scott Russo (Unwritten Law) on the album's lead single "Girlfriend." Avalon's diversity allows him to slip into sleek electro-synth beats on "I'm Hot" and playfully spit intricate rhymes over a classic hip-hop beat in the song "More Junk."

I wanna start your day off with a really important video that EMPIRE Distribution just released by the legendary Geto Boys, Willie D and Scarface, who join forces with Propain and D.Boi for the song "Hoodiez", in which they demand justice for the recently slain Trayvon Martin and speak out against the juridical system.

Here is a personal message from Willie D about the video:

"Please retweet, repost and share this video with everyone in your contacts, Youtube, your Tweeter followers, Facebook friends, etc. If you truly believe in Justice for Trayvon, consider yourself a Godly person or just care about people, you will do it without a second thought. For those who think Hip Hop is dead, I say no. This song and video is proof that it's alive and well. This is easily one of the most powerful songs ever. The message is strong, dead on and it needs to be heard. Let's show law enforcement and the powers that be in Congress that we are fed up. Let's make sure they hear our voices loud and clear by the attention we give to this artistic masterpiece of a song. Again retweet, repost and share, share, share. Thank you."

Andre Nickatina is currently in the middle of his 44-city nationwide Where's My Money? Tour, and having already made his way up the East Coast and now bulldozing through the Mid-West, Nickatina has been capturing footage of the dates so far. If you've never been to a Nickatina show, the short promo video is a fun sneak-peak into just how raucous the shows can be, with shots of Andre performing in front of packed houses night-after-night.

Accompanying the video, Nickatina is excited to release the latest single from his recent Where's My Money? mixtape, which is currently available for free download through his website. As with a number of the cuts from the mixtape, this latest single, the short-but-sweet "Jellybean Colored Suits (Return Of The Mack)," features Nickatina rapping over classic loops (in this case "Return Of The Mack") with his much-adored relaxed flow. "I'm in the back of the car, like a Mafia don/ Blowing weed, wearing Louis Vuitton," raps Nickatina, before he winds down his verse with the equally entertaining, "I wear rings, like a young Slick Rick/ And if I pawned them, I could buy a brick."
