Juno-winning MC Shad just dropped a super fun video for a song from his "melancholy and the infinite shadness" free EP that had him rapping over 90's-nostalgia beats (PM Dawn, the Breeders, etc.) - the video follows suit and brings back a lot of high school memories of singing along to records in my room. Check it out and share it if you remember the days.
In anticipation of his upcoming album The Gateway to Greatness, New York songwriter P.SO The Earth Tone King put together a special collection of some of his personal favorite P.SO tracks for music fans to enjoy.

On November 27th, 2012, West Coast rap group Pac Div will release their second full-length album, G.M.B. from The Div Co./RBC Records. Featuring appearances from Mac Miller and Kendrick Lamar as well as production from Scoop DeVille, Swiff D, and DJ Dahi, the album shows not only growth from the group but a slightly harder sound than heard on their last album, The Div. Now the trio, comprised of brothers Like and Mibbs and longtime friend BeYoung, is releasing exclusive behind the scenes footage from their latest West Coast tour.
The video features footage taken in Seattle from their West Coast tour with Sir Michael Rocks. It offers intimate behind-the-scenes footage of how Pac Div preps for shows and handles meet n' greets. As the trio jokes around and shares laughs, you see how this light-hearted mood set the tone for their upcoming performance in front of a soul-out room full of screaming fans.
Earlier this year, production duo Stu Bangas & Vanderslice released their album Diggaz With Attitude, a project chock-full of heavy, dark production and some of the underground's most talented lyricists and artists. One of those artists featured was Outerspace, the Philly-repping duo of rappers Planetary and Crypt the Warchild, and longtime collaborators with Stu Bangas & Vanderslice. Now, Outerspace is prepping their own new album, Lost In Space, and Stu Bangas has once again joined forces with Outerspace for the duo's latest single, "Manolo."
"Manolo" is built around Stu Bangas' production, a track that is best described as, simply, "epic," a combination of back-beating drums, menacing vocal chops, creeping synths, and rattling bass. Planetary and Crypt meet the track's energy in full force, the track reaching its apex at the song's forceful hook. "Stu sent us the beat, we heard it, and that's all she wrote," says Planetary of the track, while both rappers make note that the track, in all of its splendid grittiness, is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. "Raw rhymes, raw hook, raw beat," says Crypt of the track, with Planetary adding, "When you think of Outerspace, this is what you want to hear, no doubt."
