Maintaining their constant flow of creativity with the video for YOUR OWN, Hip-Hop duo, Nefew team up with directors Flavio Leone and Marco Costa, the team responsible for their recent Fan video. Eager to depict to viewers how hard work pays off, the team enlisted the amazingly talented ballerina Michele "Paleta" Ryhner to the mix and once again an impressive visual for a poignant song was born. "The idea of this video was to give the audiences a feel of how hard it can be to constantly strive for something without letting failures discourage you," Polemikk shares.

Fatal Lucciauno is back again with another offering for his fans. Two weeks ago, he was giving away his debut album, The Only Forgetten Son, free for a week; now, he is releasing the official remix of “Amazing,” produced by his Seattle comrade BeanOne.

The first remixed single off of Fatal’s sophomore album, Respect, “Amazing” showcases the skills that BeanOne brings to the table, skills that Fatal is very familiar with. “BeanOne knows me more than any other producer in the region,” remarks Fatal. "He literally started my career with big, epic tracks." For this remix, BeanOne flips Jake One’s laid-back lounge production into a punchy, triumphant instrumental that shines Fatal’s lyrics a different light. “When you listen to the smooth Jake One version you have a feeling of nostalgia we can all understand and relate to,” explains Fatal, who goes on to explain that BeanOne's version, "gives a cinematic feel to the song and has the raw element of real hip-hop that captivates any audience."

Next week, on April 10th, rapper billy woods will release his latest album, History Will Absolve Me. Late last month, woods teased fans with the album's lead single, the Roc Marciano- and Masai Bey- featuring "Body Of Work," and now woods is excited to release a new, non-album song, "Frozen Sunlight," featuring Open Mike Eagle and MarQ Spekt. For the track's unique artwork, woods enlisted the efforts of pemdesigns.

To produce the track, woods called on frequent collaborator Willie Green, who also provides the lion's share of the beats on History Will Absolve Me, and Green answers that call with a truly raucous effort - horns blaring; cymbals ringing; bass rumbling; drums pounding. "We didn't over-think this one," explains woods, when asked about the song's concept, "Our foremost intention was to make a banger. Hopefully we succeeded."

As with the best posse cuts and collaborations, the emcees looked to each other for inspiration, the competitive spirit of the studio inspiring a sum even greater than its already impressive individual parts. "Open Mike Eagle set the table perfectly, and MarQ Spekt tore the beat to pieces," says woods. "I went last, so I tried to tie together the sentiments of the previous two verses. I was definitely writing my verse feeling like 'don't fuck it up.'"
