JAIY BRADIE

Present's His New Single

"GETTIN2IT"

Dirty: http://www.mediafire.com/?dwytty6pa4z86t4 .
Clean: http://www.mediafire.com/?lc7hhla8bzlb8t3 .

Jaiy Bradie (pronounced Jay Brady) raps with plenty of attitude. Born and raised on Chicago’s notoriously vile Southside, the certified street prophet drops bars laced with witty wordplay and a “run it or get run over” mentality. Hailing from a metropolis that has birthed a myriad of successful Hip-Hop lyricists such as Common, Kanye West and Twista, Jaiy pays homage to personal experiences with his own unique approach to the Windy City mix. His life has played out like one movie after another: guns, drugs, jail, violence and death, balancing the sordid details on his new mixtape, F*&ck Your Celebrity aka (F.Y.C.) hosted by DJ Scream Making clear his intention of kicking the new year off by unleashing his verbal venom on narcissistic stars, the business-minded MC has compiled a collection of songs that are equal parts entertaining and shocking.

MP3: BBU - "Beau Sia"


MP3: BBU - "Beau Sia"

Courtesy Audible Treats.

This coming Tuesday, February 21st, marks the long-awaited arrival of BBU's brand new mixtape, bell hooks. The tape, presented by Mad Decent and mixed by DJ Benzi, will be released by Mishka Records, but before then, the four-man Chicago-based group is excited to release the album's final leak, "Beau Sia."

For BBU, the song, which premiered on the Mad Decent blog, is all about breaking the preconceived notions and often-false labels placed on socially- and politically-minded artists. "When you're 'Conscious' or 'Revolutionary,' fans and media like to put you in boxes," notes Epic. "This song was us stepping out of that box and just having fun."

To do that, the group called on producer Stefan Ponce ("He actually helped us out a lot with this record," says Illekt), who supplied the guys with a rowdy, up-tempo beat that plays to BBU's Juke sensibilities, and, most of all, let's the group get loose, as Epic, Illekt, and Jasson Perez take turns kicking school-yard game to the ladies, kepping it fun but smart. "Girl, we can kick it, but you gotta get on my level, intellectually," remarks Illekt, with Epic joking, "Yes, conscious folk do be fucking. Where do you think all these little vegan dread-locked babies come from!"

MP3: Tesei f/ Scarlet Monk - "Fly Trap"

The Chicago based production crew, Tensei, meaning 'heaven star' in Japanese, is comprised of Simple X and Midas Wells. Earlier this month they released a free EP entitled One via LA label Plug Research (Bilal, Quadron, Exile, Sonnymoon). The project showcased Tensei's unique production style, forfeiting the traditional use of samples and instead, using live musicians to create their tracks.

Today, Tensei are releasing a bonus track from the One EP entitled "Fly Trap" featuring the vocal stylings of Scarlet Monk. Over Tensei's moody, industrial beat, Monk coos, "Like A Fly On My Trap / I Want You Stuck On Me / Won't You Taste A Little Just To See / Come To Me."

(DOWNLOAD/STREAM) Tensei - "Fly Trap" feat. Scarlet Monk (Bonus Track): http://soundcloud.com/plugresearch-music/09-fly-trap-feat-scarlet-monk .

The One EP features 10 tracks for free download, mostly instrumental, but also features guest vocals from ADAD, Denmark of Crown Nation, Scarlet Monk and others. Although it’s made available as a free download, you can also purchase the EP on iTunes.

"When We Were Kings" was one of the standouts from L.A. producer/rapper Shane Eli's "I Can Do Better". It's an onslaught of insightful social commentary, soulful production and thought provoking lyricism. It's only right that the densely layered track gets some equally dense visuals. The video was directed by David A. Wong, and shot by Mark Austin, both responsible for Shane's "Grey Area" music video, with visual effects and editing by Francisco Garcia Nava. It was shot thanks to the help of Kickstarter supporters, and the Levi's Film Workshop at the Museum of Contemporary Art downtown.
