After catching industry attention with a string of acclaimed singles featuring the likes of AR-AB, Glasses Malone, Scarface and Drag-On, winning mtvU's weekly "Freshman" contest in October and being interviewed by DJ Kay Slay on Sirius XM's Shade45 radio, emcee Ricky Rude has recruited the illustrious hip hop legend, Trina, and platinum selling producer, Sarom, to assist him on his new lighthearted club banger, “Stripper Ass, Model Face”.
Against the odds and amongst the dreamers, Dubwork, a self proclaimed dreamer, brings us a flow and vibe that can be described as dedicated to the daily grind... And the dreamers. With his newly released mixtape STILL DREAMING, featuring 17 original tracks, Dubwork takes his inspirations, dreams and inner voice to the masses.
Armani White's T.O.L.L. (To Our Lost Loves) series returns today with its second release; the Freddie Joachim assisted track "Call Out My Name". The song paints the up and down sequences of a premature love story between two avid adolescents. The full T.O.L.L. project is slated to be finalized and released within the coming weeks.
Audio: Knightstalker & Falling Down - Kept In Perspective EP
The “Kept In Perspective” EP is a collaboration effort to showcase Knightstalker’s lyrical performance on the microphone as well as Falling Down’s production skills. The combination of neck snapping production combined with witty wordplay and storytelling builds the foundation of this 8-track effort.
Dudley Perkins releases his first solo album in 4 years today, titled Dr. Stokley. Featuring Bronx legend Percee P and production from Madlib, Kankick, and Georgia Anne Muldrow, the new album is sonic medicine. This is that melenated flow, Visine for your third eye.
Continuing on with their impressive path of consistent releases. Swedish emcee lyrical, and California's very own Anterluz now give us 'Between The Lines'. The Jazzy breakbeat, mellow Guitars and Rhodes all mesh well with their delivery like a musical omelette. Although the title suggests so, there's clearly no lines that need to be read between to know this record is a must hear.
