German-American online music company Block Starz Music LLC has scheduled the release of its long-awaited DOWN SOUTH BLOCK STARZ compilation for later this month. Block Starz Music has also released the official music video to the compilation's first single, "After The Club" (formerly "Waffle House"), by Havana, Florida rapper J.R. Bricks, who made national headlines in August after the label received a cease and desist letter from Waffle House, Inc over the song's title that sparked controversy and outrage in the online Hip-Hop community.

DOWN SOUTH BLOCK STARZ is the fourth installment of Block Starz Music's critically-acclaimed regional compilation series which has previously featured the likes of platinum-selling Rostrum/Atlantic Records artist Wiz Khalifa and recent Bad Boy/Interscope signee Machine Gun Kelly. The 12-track online digital release will be available from Block Starz Music for download on iTunes, Amazon, and Rhapsody on Tuesday, November 22nd.

DOWN SOUTH BLOCK STARZ will contain original music by various new and established independent urban artists from the southern United States, including sizzling contributions by former Cash Money Records super producer Mannie Fresh's protege The Show, a surprise appearance by Lil' Flip ("Like A Pimp", "This Is The Way We Ball") on Louisiana rap duo Southern Dynasty's "Pop A Band", and an exclusive remix to J.R. Bricks "After The Club" featuring Block Starz Music affiliates Cin'atra Da Mobsta and AG.

"We're giving fans some Down South music to enjoy with their down home cooking this holiday season," says Block Starz Music vice president of A&R Peppy Johnson of the DOWN SOUTH BLOCK STARZ compilation. "It's a perfect way to cap off a tremendous year for our company."

Press Release: Childish Gambino Premieres "Bonfire" Video

Courtesy 'Stache Media.

Childish Gambino, the moniker for actor Donald Glover, has emerged as one of the most exciting young talents in music. With a unique blend of hip-hop with multiple genres, combined with lyrical genius, Childish Gambino has gone from a viral cult following to a mega sensation. Spin Magazine praises, "...[his EP's] all have showcased Glover's fiercely clever, plugged-nose flow, which recalls both Lil Wayne's verbal skywriting and Kanye West's vulnerable-braggart defensiveness."

Please feel free to stream and repost here: http://www.mtv.com/videos/childish-gambino/706255/bonfire.jhtml#id=1518071 .

Debut album, CAMP, is due out November 15th, 2011 on Glassnote Records.

Childish Gambino has released two mixtapes," I Am Just A Rapper" and "I Am Just A Rapper 2" and in March 2011, Childish Gambino released an untitled EP that featured the hit "Freaks and Geeks". Most recently, Childish Gambino wrapped the sold out I AM DONALD TOUR, played to over 10,000 people at the Bonnaroo Music Festival and is continuing to wow crowds at the travelling Rock The Bells Festival through October. Following his sold-out IAMDONALD Tour and dates on the travelling hip-hop festival Rock The Bells, Childish Gambino will hit 11 cities along the East Coast for the Sign Up Tour. The Sign Up Tour kicked off in Memphis, TN on October 5th and wraps on November 12th at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, CA as he prepares for the release of his debut album CAMP, due out November 15th, 2011.

League510 are back again, and with their new video, "S.O.S.," the usually fun-loving and party-ready group has decided to take their music to a more serious place, one that focuses on the harsh realities of day-to-day life in Oakland. "The main inspiration for this song was the senseless violence that happens in our city, Oakland, CA," remarks TK, who spits one of the songs two verses, with fellow League member Mr. Knowitall holding down the other.
