The lemonade keeps pouring from the Seattle-based duo, Fly Moon Royalty. Last week, singer AdraBoo and producer Action Jackson released the video for "Lemonade," one of the singles off their recently released, self-titled album. The video premiered with OkayPlayer and has since been featured as Afro Punk's Video of the Week, and today, the duo is unveiling Action Jackson's official remix to the song, "Lemonade (Mike's Hard Remix)."
Action Jackson, whose real name is Mike (hence the "Mike's Hard Remix" title), took the vocals from the original song, with the goal of creating a track that is starkly contrasted against the original, while still keeping with the same themes and ideas of the initial track. "The original 'Lemonade' is a fun, light-hearted song. It has an old-timey, Doo-wop sort of feel," explains Action Jackson. "The hip-hop, R&B flavor with synth textures doesn't exist on the original. I wanted to make it a little grimier. Plain and simple."

Herukhuti Ausar of Money Over Death can best be described as a rapping soldier on the rise. Now residing in Los Angeles, the Raleigh, North Carolina native marches to a beat of his own and with his Street LP, Feds Don’t Like Me, (hosted by Greg Street) Herukhuti has crafted a lyrical compilation that is certain to captivate all audiences. He has mastered the art of exemplifying his life’s struggles, through music - music that is genuine, raw, and real; yet uplifting and empowering.
Standing out at six feet four inches tall, Herukhuti is a physical and lyrical powerhouse and his words are just as powerful and enlightening. Encountering and overcoming many of life’s trials and tribulations, Herukhuti has a story to tell and just as important; a testimony to give. Herukhuti believes that his constant thirst for knowledge and truth, combined with his undying resilience and strength, is what distinguishes him from other artists.
As Herukhuti begins to gear up for the release of, Feds Don’t Like Me, (Universal/Fontana/Bonzi) listeners will soon hear the diversity contained within his struggle.
Recently, in an effort to finish Feds Don’t Like Me and his solo-debut, Herukhuti relocated to Los Angeles to work more in-depth with Aftermath producers DJ Silk & Choc and can be found in the studio alongside Dr. Dre as well. Herukhuti’s work with Aftermath artist Slim Da Mobster can be heard on the chilling “Blood On My Shoes.”
Herukhuti is already manifesting his dreams, with Feds Don’t Like Me (which includes guest appearances from Slim Da Mobsta, Glasses Malone & Carl Thomas and production from J Wells and Aftermath producers Choc & DJ Silk), his debut LP, working with the Aftermath team and two placements on the upcoming soundtrack for 50 Cent & Bruce Willis’ “Fire With Fire” movie (one of which is “Blood On My Shoes”).
Herukhuti’s Feds Don’t Like Me will be released in May 2012.
