Video: G.U.N.S. - "Off In This" & Mixtape

Sports metaphors have always been prevalent in rap and hip-hop from early on.  Many artists grow up in environments where both music and athletics are synonymous. It’s only right for one of the brightest up-and-coming rap groups, backed by NFL star cornerback Asante Samuel, to title their newest mixtape "Overtime".

Speaking about Goons United by the New School and their upcoming release, the All-Pro cornerback remarked, "The group is stacked with young ambitious talent. They are a bunch of high energy guys who love to make good music,” he continued, "I love the new "Hockey" record, I can't wait for everyone to hear the rest of the project."

Press Release: Just P - "Just Call Me P" @JustPUK


From Black Budget Entertainment:

Press Release: Just P - "Just Call Me P"

On Monday 30th April 2012, underground Hip Hop emcee & founder of Black Budget Entertainment, Just P (formerly known as BiGPSG), of NW London, England, will be officially releasing his first full length album: Just Call Me P, exclusively through Black-Budget.com for free.

The album, Just Call Me P, is the follow-up to the successful Whats A Prestyle EP (released by Just P, under the name BiG PSG, on 21st July 2011) and comprises of 21 completely original tracks with production from underground beat makers: Tritone, Politiks, Pro P, Gadget MJM, Dirty Stanz, Dead Man Walkn, Tricksta & Baron-Samedi.

In the build up to releasing Just Call Me P, Just P has: featured on the UKʼs number one urban broadcaster, SB.TV, in their famed Warm Up Sessions YouTube series; released numerous well received music videos via his own YouTube channel; gained radio play on independent radio stations; and performed at numerous Hip Hop events around the local NW London area.

With this release Just P intends to set himself apart from other emceeʼs currently on the UK Hip hop scene; demonstrate his abilities as a unique emcee; and further establish himself as an independent artist - while proving he can retain a listeners attention without the help of feature appearances.

As the title suggests, Just Call Me P is aimed to be the first official mark on the UK music scene made by the completely independent London native, and with Just P in control of everything from writing the lyrics to mastering the tracks, its safe to say that this is a true reflection of him as an artist.
