My name is Terran Bailey (T.Bailey), came from Chicago, IL (US) now I'm a college student residing in California. I know a lot of people wanna pursue music, and it's a tough industry but I believe it can happen. Just have to have the means to do it, the culture, background, and most important the sound (talent, lyrics, etc).

Click play on Hot's album and you instantly get sucked into the Bay Area's movement with hard hitting baselines felt throughout the album and especially on his single "Do My Stuff!" By the time you get to song three which features E-40, Bay Area fans are for sure going dumb while turning the volume up to FTP which stands for 'Fuck This Pussy'.

"Help Us", a far cry from the usual light-hearted, party oriented fare Kazzie is known for. Hours after leaking it on Twitter, Kazzie was contacted by the folks at Face Structure, who, in collaboration with FP YouthOutcry have planned a '100 Youth Against Violence' day of atonement at Newark's City Hall to bring to light the epidemic of gun violence that is plaguing their city. Kazzie has been invited to attend and speak to the kids; to share his own experiences and ways of coping.

One of the standout singles from Black Dave's recent "Black Bart" mixtape receives the honorary remix treatment courtesy of MMG's own beard gang general, Stalley. The smooth, New York-esque cut was produced by Shy Beats with verse exchanges between the two emcees that'll serve as the perfect antidote if you're looking for some chill vibes.

Tour: @Latyrx - The Second Album World Tour

Tour: Latyrx - The Second Album World Tour

Rappers/producers Lyrics Born and Lateef the Truth Speaker, together known as Latyrx, are releasing their first album in nearly two decades on November 5th. The highly-anticipated release, titled The Second Album, features members of Tune Yards, Anticon, Living Colour, The Decemberists and Blackalicious to name a few. Now, Latyrx are setting out on The Second Album World Tour with Bay Area hip-hop duo Skins & Needles in support of the album.

Starting in Denver, Colorado on October 25th, the tour covers the western part of the U.S. with stops in San Francisco, Seattle, Boise and more. Orgone, Forrest Day, DJ Aaron AxelsEn (LIVE105 + Popscene), and Chief Xcel of Blackalicious will also appear on select dates. The first leg of the tour dates and tickets are below. The second half of the tour will continue in early 2014. Says Lyrics Born, "I love traveling, the instant interaction with fans, and the adrenaline. This is the first time in 16 years we will have a whole new album's worth of material to perform. It's exciting to be able to add on to the legacy we've already created with new classics. I'm super looking forward to this tour."

The Second Album continues where they left off 16 years ago when they released their first album, The Album, which is still universally considered a classic that broke the mold for independent rap albums both sonically and sales-wise. Never before had a rap duo pushed the envelope in terms of creative sound and political message and been so widely accepted and celebrated. As true ambassadors of the culturally and historically rich San Francisco Bay Area, with Lyrics Born identifying as being an Asian American that "happens to be bi-racial, basically a member of the Obama generation," and Lateef's father having worked security detail for the Black Panthers and his mother having worked as a medic for the Panthers, it's no surprise that much of their lyrical content is socially and politically charged. Backed with their signature production style that's full of rare funk and soul samples, Latyrx's 2013 richly textured release will appeal to old fans and garner them new ones.

In the 90's, Latyrx helped co-found the Solesides collective and artist-run record label consisting of DJ Shadow and Blackalicious, which pushed boundaries of commercial hip-hop using sounds atypical of the mainstream 90s hip-hop scene. The past 20 years has seen them working on various solo projects, writing books, having their music used in campaigns by Nissan and EA Games, being nominated for a Grammy, and appearing on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE and the Late Show with David Letterman and at festivals around the world. The two are ready to unleash their forward-thinking experimental-leaning second full-length project, The Second Album,on their own Latyramid label on November 5th.
