Memphis, TN -- November 30, 2011 -- As Yo Gotti awaits the release of his full-length LP Live From the Kitchen in early 2012 (Polo Grounds Music/RCA), the Memphis mogul is preparing a brand new mixtape project for fans. This exclusive download will debut on YoGottiMusic.com in December 2011.

Yo Gotti will kick off December with a stop in New York to film the video for "Colors," which features Juelz Santana and Gucci Mane. He debuted the track on November 29 via his site to the delight of fans around the world. (Click here to download: http://yogottimusic.com/music/yo-gotti-colors-ft-juelz-santana-gucci-mane)

The full-length video will make its television debut via Polo Grounds Music/RCA in early 2012.

Yo Gotti launched YoGottiMusic.com and his official CMG Shop on Black Friday (Nov. 25), and garnered nearly 50,000 views over the holiday weekend. The immediate popular online store carries tees, sweatshirts and other gear, all supporting Gotti's Cocaine Muzik Group label and world renowned Cocaine Muzik mixtape series. 

The ability to share his growing movement directly with fans is paramount to Gotti, as his nearly 1.5 million followers on Facebook and Twitter engage frequently with him.

"I wanted a platform to connect directly with fans, because so many people can't find songs or merchandise from me that they are asking for," Yo Gotti explains. "With the launch of this site, we'll be able to provide a hub where the real fans can get it first. We have such loyal support from online media as well, and I feel that YoGottiMusic.com is only going to strengthen our opportunities to connect with people from every angle."

Yo Gotti will unveil more new tracks each Tuesday in December, leading to the release of the mixtape, all exclusively on YoGottiMusic.com. He will also announce several new products for the CMG shop, and will be updating the site with photos, videos and more engaging content along the way.

Free Album: hasHBrown - Break Something


Free Album: hasHBrown - Break Something

Courtesy Audible Treats.

Today, hasHBrown is excited to release his new album, Break Something. In an attempt to most effectively reach the entirety of his fan base, the Houston-based rapper/producer is offering the project as both a free download, and for sale through his Bandcamp (for $5) or iTunes, allowing listeners easy access to the music, while also giving those who'd like to support hasH the opportunity to do so.

Despite the month-long lead-up to the album's release, Break Something is a project that's been in the works for much longer. "For the last two years almost, I've been working on Break Something, song by song," explains hasHBrown. "Since I first started I've taken several breaks from its completion." And for hasH, his hard work and dedication - his understanding the value of patience - has resulted in album that truly meets his vision.

The album's title, Break Something, draws from hasH's feelings on hip-hop, towards his city, and his own inner frustrations from trying to make it in the music industry. "The album is about breaking away from people's expectations, about fighting for an identity of your own," explains hasH. "From parents, to friends, to media everyone projects what they think you should be at some point in time. The LP is about shattering all of those forced identities and staying on your own path."

For the album, hasH, who produces under the moniker Jett I. Masstyr, kicked things off with a slew of his own beats, but eventually reached out to producers including Vango One, Chris Rockaway, Tommy Bumps, and Free of The Niceguys who were active on many of the standout tracks. hasH’s most recent single, "This Is It," features vocals from Dannie Walker and finds the MC displaying versatility outside of his realm, while "My Island" features hasH reflecting on life's conflictions with vocal assistance from John Dew and Nya. Elsewhere,"The Restoration" reflects back on the album's title, with hasH rebuilding all that he has broken down. "Sometimes," notes hasH, "you need to destroy and rebuild it to be better than what it was before."
