he Quickening 2: Acceleration puts us face to face with many topics that reflect what we are experiencing in the now. It takes a lot of foresight and courage for an mc/lyricist to approach a topic like the end of the world as we know it, and KIL RIPKIN executes this to perfection with "Ragnarok". The heavy hitting drums and infectious "Rock, rock on" refrain pull the listener into a vortex of awakening, sending them to google and read up on the mind-altering information woven intricately into the track. "Ragnarok" is the first single from The Quickening 2: Acceleration.

With his upcoming album Legends Never Die set to hit stores on April 30th, legendary rapper R.A. The Rugged Man is now debuting one of the most highly-anticipated tracks off the album. "Holla-Loo-Yuh" features two iconic underground figures uniting, as R.A. is joined by Tech N9ne, with fellow Strange Music emcee Krizz Kaliko on the hook. While R.A. and Tech have run in the same circles for over a decade, the all-out lyrical slaughter of "Holla-Loo-Yuh" marks their historic first-ever collaboration. Legends Never Die is the official follow-up to R.A.'s critically acclaimed album Die Rugged Man Die, and also features appearances from the likes of Hopsin, Talib Kweli, Brother Ali, Vinnie Paz, Masta Ace, Sadat X, Eamon, and more.

A few months after "Love & Danger", Kool Keith comes back, with Mr. Sche (aka Big Sche Eastwood ). These two tutelary figures of rap have joined forces to bring up a colorful album. “Magnetic Pimp Force Field” is born somewhere between New York and Memphis. Anyhow it is impossible to define this association. It smashes to bits New York as well as Southern rap. And offers a symbiosis, a fusion. Samples collide with analogical synthesizers, revisiting the heritage of Hip-Hop. Who better than Kool Keith and Mr. Sche can personify these characters bigger than life and share with us their ravings ?

Truly passionate and dedicated underground artists constantly struggle between handling legit business and just simply doing what they love, which is making good music. Anyone chasing their dreams has to deal with their personal lives interrupting their focus on their goals. Ohio up & coming hip-hop artist Yung Prof knows this all too well and has channeled his thoughts on the matter within his new single "Let's Talk About It."
