Today, Full |REBEL| Jacket is releasing the video for "Monte Carlo," the latest single from the REBEL EP, and one, both by name and sound, that fits snuggly in the Country Rap Tunes lexicon. The song is about "reaching your inner potential, whatever that means to you," says Q. "We wanted to show the inner struggle that we all go through when dealing with monotony of every day life."

Earlier this year, Double A.B. & Dub Sonata released their album Media Shower. The project, released via Man Bites Dog Records, includes features from Evidence, Roc Marciano, Sean Price, and more. But most of all, Media Shower, and Double A.B. & Dub Sonata with it, harkens back to an earlier era, an era of soulful chops and concentrated lyricism, and in looking back towards that era, perhaps no song is more fitting than "Sunset," a world-weary track that features Cannibal Ox, a duo that served as true underground stars of that once-forgotten but now resurgent time.

UK Runnings Presents XO The Rebellion - Kush & Cognac
Courtesy Park Street PR.
'XO: The Rebellion' or 'XOTR' for short are a brand new Hip Hop group coming straight out of Luton Town, UK. The group comprises of three talented artists: Stephen Fivensix, Tommy DMO and Closure who are all good friends outside the studio. All three members sing and rap with Fivensix behind a lot of the instrumentals/productions the group have released to date.
Fivensix and Tommy DMO have been good friends for about a decade and have shared the stage on a number of occasions in the past. As former band musicians and accomplished guitarists, their influence and experience works to further set XOTR aside from other artists working in the same genre.
XOTR's brand new mixtape 'Kush & Cognac' debuts as part of the long standing British hip hop mixtape series 'UK Runnings' and is hosted by veteran mixtape deejay: Tricksta. The release consists of 11 eclectic tracks that draw influence from south-coast trap, east-coast boom bap, RnB, soul, acoustic and rock genres making this a very interesting and unique mixtape release. The trio have recorded on mostly original instrumentals apart from two popular beat remakes.
All three artists have enjoyed success in the past with their solo projects, however with their skills now combined they hope to make their presence even further known in the UK music scene. Download UK Runnings presents: 'Kush & Cognac' now and hear for yourself what all the buzz is about surrounding this relatively new collaborative project.

The third album by the Bully Blinders is here and we’d love to tell you about how it came about and what it means to us.
We’ve never been ones for pigeonholing others, much less being pigeon-holed ourselves. Like so many of us, our interests are varied and our taste as evolutionary as life. For some reason, it’s been typical practice to corner off musical styles and put a roll of police tape around it to warn others of the accepted do’s and dont’s, the expected cast of characters, and the associated prescribed philosophies. While this album wasn’t intended to specifically rebel against these social norms, what we ended up with in a most natural development is a collection of emotional expression without the sometime burden of message by way of the vernacular.
Whether it’s driving, studying, staring into a fire, running errands, procreating, falling asleep, or just watching your proteins folding, these songs are available to you to be used as atmospheric backdrop and emotional steerage. While we didn’t set out to make an instrumental album, what we found was the development of a sound that wasn’t asking for lyrics. Instead, we were confronted by a score that feels somehow new, both relaxing and exciting at the same time… Making this music was such a great creative experience for us and we are very eager to share these songs with you.
Maybe you’ll find melodies and words floating around in these songs. We’d love to hear it if you do.
