It has been a few years since she released an official single, but MC Lyte is back with, "Cravin," a new track that just screams Summertime! "Cravin" is produced by The Natives and will appear on Lyte's forthcoming LP; which as of now is still untitled and will be released on LoudBox Entertainment/ Sunni Gyrl, Inc.
Hip-Hop is a culture that knows no geographical boundaries. If it's dope, it's dope. Massachusetts duo, G Dot & Born, kick their smooth flows over a soulful Frontier Beats produced track, from all over the globe to show you the reach of the international language that is Hip-Hop.
From the "high rise balcony" of their building, to Naples, G Dot & Born keep it easy with good vibes and plenty of trees. Directed by Myster DL and featuring original graffiti from the streets, "Puff Clouds" will have you in the right state of mind for summer. MP3 is available for free download.
Straight off a 3-show run in Cleveland, Chicago MC and FakeShoreDrive contributor Fatboi Fre$h delivers his latest mixtape. What better way to start off the 4th of July BBQ season than with a tape called.... "ESCAPE FROM FAT CAMP ~ the album."
The Black Opera has never been known to follow rules. When the rules say you have to collab with a lot of rappers, until this point they've chosen not to. When the rules say image is most important, they've pushed their art to the forefront instead. When the rules say you have to explain to everyone what the meaning of each song is, TBO has chosen to leave it up to your interpretation and let the art speak.
D-Sisive: The Baby Shower Live @ Drake Underground July 11th
I’m happy to announce I’m having a baby. A girl. A daughter. My daughter. This means I will be in charge of somebody’s life. It’s scary, because four years ago I considered ordering a pizza from 241 Pizza and buying two veal sandwiches from California Sandwiches on Dufferin Street grocery shopping. I would eat out of the fridge. Cold veal. That was me. And now, I’m going to be a father. Because of this, I’ve made some changes. I now heat up the veal. And have a fridge filled with vegetables. Mainly because my baby-mama is a vegetarian. Regardless, I’m a lot more responsible than I was four years ago. I'm losing my edge.

When Nelly Furtado had her daughter, she lost her edge. Not that she was Blanche Devereaux to begin with, but Folklore was no Whoa, Nelly! She said ‘shit’ on Whoa, Nelly. And Folklore was what my friends would refer to as ‘Fat Portuguese Mom Music.’ This makes me nervous. Am I destined to make Fat Macedonian Dad Music? I already make Fat Macedonian Music. I’m a fat Macedonian. How do I stop the Dad part? Do I stop it? Furtado eventually redeemed herself with Loose. Will I have the opportunity to record a duet about sexing with Timbaland? Or, who’s the Canadian Timbaland? Jarvis Church? Or Prozzak?
These are the things I think about while staring at hot veal.
The point I’m trying to make is…I’m having a baby. And I want to celebrate it with you! And we shall celebrate here…
