The Battleaxe movement continues to grow across the globe, as more and more fans join the army. Philadelphia based rapper Adlib is a Battleaxe Warrior Top Tier Captain and has released his new video for the track "Lawless" featuring Madchild online. The video was shot when Adlib was on the 'Lawn Mower Man' tour with Slaine and Madchild, and features footage from shows across the country.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania emcee Adlib has been gaining momentum with the release of his debut album "Bad Newz". The album conjures up a nostalgic sense of golden era hip-hop with a strong dose of aggressiveness that is characteristic of the La Coka Nostra and Battle Axe collective. Adlib’s 'Bad Newz' features guest appearances by Vinnie Paz, Madchild, Slaine, Steele of Smif-N-Wessun, Shabaam Sahdeeq and more. Adlib has been touring across the globe with Jedi Mind Tricks, La Coka Nostra, and Swollen Members cultivating a rabid fanbase.
Madchild is riding a wave of success with his sophomore album "Lawn Mower Man", which debuted at #2 on the Canadian Billboard Top 200.

Wu-Tang's Maneater Ft. Hall & Oates & Wu-Tang Clan
FREE DOWNLOAD FROM "BALLIN' OATES" - COMING 11/14/13!
In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of "Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)," I present "Wu-Tang's Maneater." This is the first track from "Ballin' Oates," my third EP of remixes focusing on a single classic artist. To create this track, I completely replayed and remixed "Maneater" by Hall & Oates, producing a new beat and flipping the instrumental. I then added the vocals from Wu-Tang's "C.R.E.A.M." The entire EP will be out later this week!
Tech N9ne Makes His Television Debut and Has a Big Scare on AXS TV's Skee Live

Things got a little scary on AXS TV's SKEE LIVE tonight when hip-hop artist TECH N9NE visited the set in his first national television appearance. Knowing his love of horror films, host DJ Skee had an actor dressed as "Halloween" horror antagonist Michael Myers sneak up behind the rapper during their interview as a late birthday surprise.
As the spirited interview continued, TECH N9NE cleared up a misconception about his association with the "horror core" genre of hip-hop.
Listen what TECH N9NE has to say about his music here (warning strong language).
From the underground world to the mainstream scene, TECH N9NE has been a major influence in hip-hop over the last decade. With 10 top-five albums dating back to 2002 and singles with artists like Lil’ Wayne, Andre 3000 and Kendrick Lamar, he has consistently produced music that has resonated within the hip-hop community.
"Awwwe Man!" is taken from Nametag & NAMELESS "REDO" project available at midnight 11.12.13 on Brick Records as a digital release only featuring new songs from Nametag & NAMELESS, plus remixes from the duo's recently released LP titled "For Namesake".
Dilemmanade Joins Machine Gun Kelly For "Raging with Reindeer II" Canadian Tour In December

Dilemmanade, a.k.a Johnny Dilemma, has been added as a support act for Machine Gun Kelly's upcoming "Raging with Reindeer II" Canadian tour throughout December. Dilemmanade will serve as support on all of MGK's upcoming Canadian shows and will be touring in support of his "Dilemmanade" EP, which was released earlier this year.
Dilemmanade, or Dilemma for short, was born and raised in Scarborough, Ontario and relocated to Vancouver after narrowly surviving major brain surgery. A gifted wordsmith, Dilemma prides himself on being a songwriter that can rap circles around most new era emcees. He's one of the most energetic, audience-engaging, stage-diving and speaker-climbing emcees to present such amazing mic and breath control with such great clarity during a live performance. After releasing two albums with his former group, Sketch Bros, he sold 7,000 copies of his solo debut album, titled "Dilemma" in less than nine months.
Dilemmanade's explosive live show is unparalleled, and his energy earned him opening slots on bills with the likes of Snoop Dogg, The Game, Classified, Jedi Mind Tricks, Talib Kweli, as well as Redman and Method Man. Always on the grind, Dilemma was offered a chance to support legendary hip-hop group Bone Thugs N Harmony on over 60 dates in three countries over two continents. Dilemmanade's music and message transcend across classes and resonate with everyone from thugs to the new wave of hip-hop heads. Now with his career on the rise, Dilemmanade is grinding to take things to the next level with the release of his upcoming sophomore effort in early 2014.
