Huntsville, Alabama rapper Zilla teams up Donnis and Southern production juggernauts the Block Beattaz on "Keep It G," a piano themed track that speaks to the battles that are often waged between those that strive for success and those that choose to watch. Alabama's crown hood lyricist Zilla delivers his unique brand of authentic wordplay to add a rugged feel to the bouncing track. Fresh off of a highly anticipated project with Lil Boosie's Q Red, Zilla continues his hood laced poeticism on what may be one of his most raw collaborations of late.

Today Seattle band Radio Raheem released its song “Calling the World” along with an accompanying live rehearsal video. “Calling the World” is one of Radio Raheem’s lead singles and a staple of its live shows. Inspired by Talking Heads classic track “Life During Wartime” the song’s lyrics talk about love gone bad, DJs retreating, the dead rising and general cacophonous partying at the end of the world. The rehearsal video features the band playing their songs live in guitar player Bryan Cohen’s basement/rehearsal space.
Mickaleaux "Ulterior Motive" Mixtape is Now Available!!!
Defined as a Incognito of this hustle we call Rappin' & Rhymin', "Mickaleaux" is forcing the hand of fans to crank volume knobs & bass boosters with his third solo-effort mixtape "Ulterior Motive" as it sets sail across the net and blacktops globally. Keeping the features to a bare minimum as usual, new up-and-coming New Orleans artist "Pip" & JetLife Recordings' own "Street Wiz" joined forces to tie the "Knot" & keep the "World Spinnin'".
Canada’s hardest working artist shows a new side. M.O. is known for his constant touring schedule, lyrical dexterity and feel good music but with the release of his new video "Mr. Blue" he shows off his story telling ability with a tale of a girl gone wrong starring Ashley Martinez & Emily Einsmann and shot by Illvibe Studios.

Megadon returns with another banger but this time he brought a few friends. Veteran Emcee's Tragedy Khadafi and Shabaam Sahdeeq are featured together on the same song for the first time as well as Black Smoke from Lost Boyz Family. The video is set in Egypt (Kemet) where the team of super human emcee's are seen using ancient kemetic powers and battling military resistance. Donald Robinson Cole displays some serious video skill, making this more of an experience instead of just a regular video.

Now, as the year winds down, Man Bites Dog is presenting the latest visual from the album, for the song "Arkansas Toothpick," which features Roc Marciano and Jason Rose.
