MP3: Steven A. Clark - "Lonely Roller" Ft. J. Nics
Courtesy Audible Treats.
On June 11th, Steven A. Clark will release his latest album, Fornication Under Consent Of The King. Last month, in announcing the project, the Miami-based singer released the album's lead single, "Don't Have You," and now, with an official music video still forthcoming for that track, Steven A. Clark is excited to release the album's latest single, "Lonely Roller" featuring J. Nics.
ince releasing his first album, STRIPES, in 2011, Steven A. Clark has found his name mentioned amongst the rising crop of new R&B singers – a list that includes names like The Weeknd and Frank Ocean – and for fans just getting into Clark's music, "Lonely Roller," which Steven A. Clark also produced, is a perfect example as to why those comparisons are being made.
"The song is about being fed up with my relationship at home and using the strip club as a stress reliever," explains Steven A. Clark. "Problem is, I end up falling for a stripper." Clark's songwriting is on full display here, as he weaves through the story, singing, "She wasn't the greatest dancer/ But when she spoke to me/ I fell intrigued from what she said."
The song features a strong guest verse from rapper and fellow Miamian J. Nics, while singer Victoria Blue also adds her vocals to the track, embodying the dancer of Clark's desire, tempting him as he helplessly pushes away. "Strippers are more than just great dancers," notes Clark, "the best ones know all the right things to say."

Kottonmouth Kings Release Watch Out Video Featuring Twiztid Online

The Kottonmouth Kings have released their new video for "Watch Out" featuring Twiztid online at http://www.kottonmouthkings.com/watchout. The song was released online last week as a free download for fans to promote the Kottonmouth Kings upcoming co-headlining tour with Twiztid. The Kaos & Kronik Tour with special guests Blaze and Big B is set to kick off on April 13th in Kansas City.
"We wanted to create a dope, dark underground video to accompany this collabo track. We came up with this twisted idea for the video that featured a fictitious serial killer character that tied into the song perfectly," commented The Dirtball. "Not only is the video itself sick, but it brings together two of the biggest forces in underground music today and gives fans a collaboration that they've been dying to see for years. I can't wait to kick off the Kaos & Kronik Tour and bring both group's together for one explosive show that will kill it every night!"
California’s reigning rip-hop originators, Kottonmouth Kings have long been a cornerstone of one of today’s most radical music movements.

Fresh off of releasing his new project Service Without A Smile, Serge Severe hit the airwaves on 107.1FM in Portland and did an in studio performance of his single "Rare Flow". His excellent lyrical ability and uncanny flow really shines through.
CAFE JASS is a jazz hip-hop concept album dreamt up by Canadian emcee iLLvibe after he and L.S. met DowntownSoul producer Beat Thief whilst on a guerilla tour of Europe in 2010. Melding a live jazz ambience, Beat Thief's trademark soul-infused hip-hop sound, and mature rhymes from the two indie hip-hop vets, this is a cohesive album for the discerning listener. With features on the album including US emcees Kwote1 (Chicago) and Yello Blac (Cali), as well as Canada's Mer and Rk ParX, not to mention DowntownSoul affiliates Non Applicable and Sam Steele, this is truly an international affair, with recording begun in London and since completed in Toronto and Hong Kong. Taking the idea of a live night at the vibrant but run-down Cafe Jass, the songs have an organic feel, interspersed with comedic snippets from a legendary Richard Pryor show.
iLLvibe is a Canadian emcee who was nominated for the Toronto Independent Music Awards' Best Rap Act in 2010, off the back of his "Sex, Love & Hip-Hop" album, and performances on the same bill as the likes of Pharoahe Monch, Pete Rock, Obie Trice, Slaughterhouse, Method Man, Lloyd Banks, Busta Rhymes and even Sean Paul. Having also worked with established artists such as Slakah the Beatchild and soul singer Lani Billard, Vibe has coordinated two tours, the WeAllKings tour of East Canada, and then Hip-Hop Revolution tour of Europe alongside L.S. Known for his prodigious work ethic, Cafe Jass represents Vibe's fourth full release since the beginning of 2011, following "In the Streets of iLLydelfya", "Just Around the Corner" and the well-received "Blunts & Roses". "Last Song" is his 19th video for a released track.
L.S. is a Canadian hip-hop artist, community activist and former professional snow-boarder. Releasing "All in Time" back in 2006, followed by 2008's seminal "In This Life", he has since spent time living in New Zealand and, alongside iLLvibe, launched the "Join the Hip-Hop Revolution" tour in 2010, independently touring the UK, Belgium, Holland and France. Most recently L.S. has turned his hand to his local community in Barrie, Ontario, leading the local "Occupy" movement and holding talks with the town's Mayor to reengage the youth generation, as well as running local artistry centre Unity Market & Studios.
