17 year-old hip hop prodigy Macon Hamilton is back again with his new track "Rewind It All" which is also produced by Mr. Hamilton. You are definitely going to recognize the future sample, but don't worry it goes perfectly with this track.
This is Sean aka LONEgevity from Indianapolis, and I'm an artist and producer. Before I drop my remix project with Chicago's Grumpy Old Men in the next month or so, I decided to let this loose track go that I did a couple weeks ago. "More Than This" is a fun love-in-the-spring-time type of joint, and I had some fun making it.
A few months back Quelle Chris signed to a multi-project deal with Mello Music Group. As Quelle prepares his debut proper for later this year, the prolific producer/emcee (who is most famous for his work with Danny Brown, Sean Price, and Roc Marci) decided to put together a new project with some of his peoples: Cavalier, Fresh Daily, Tanya Morgan, Denmark, DJ GroWeyez, and more. The result is 2Dirt4TV Ep. 2: "Niggas Is Men", a 13 track album dropping digitally March 19th.
