PR: R.A. The Rugged Man Launches New Website, Contest


From Matt @ Nature Sounds:

PR: R.A. The Rugged Man Launches New Website, Contest

Not only is R.A. The Rugged Man an underground rap legend, he's also a boxing buff and a movie producer, director, and screenwriter.  His own unique (and slightly twisted) viewpoint has landed his writings on hip-hop, boxing, and movies in the pages of popular  magazines like The Source, Vibe, King, Complex, and more.  Now, he's launching a website covering all three of his passions: ratheruggedman.net

Already, the site features R.A.'s take on Jay-Z vs. Kool G Rap, interviews with iconic film directors Wes Craven and David Cronenberg, and analsys of Zab Judah Vs. Amir Khan, with more posts coming every day. As R.A. explains: "There's three things that I know, and that's hip-hop, boxing, and movies.  Ask me about geography or science, and I don't have a clue.  But if you want a demented take on those three things, look no further."

To celebrate the launch of the site, R.A. is also launching an MC contest. The "Murderous Lyricist" competition will give one lucky MC the chance to appear alongside hip-hop royalty like R.A., Kool G Rap, Jedi Mind Tricks, RZA, Celph  Titled, Atmosphere, Killah Priest, Apathy, Smoothe the Hustler, Inspectah Deck, and more on the upcoming Bad Biology compilation album. Be sure to stay tuned to ratheruggedman.net as R.A. puts the finishing touches on his new album, coming soon.

PR: Rapper Adam Warlock Album w/ Samples From The Mars Volta


From Uncommon Records:

PR: Rapper Adam Warlock Album w/ Samples From The Mars Volta

Uncommon Records presents the debut (FREE) release from Adam WarlockDark Weapons (from Mars).  Adam and his wife were the victims of an apartment burglary, causing every object that was left behind to be seen as a weapon for defense a week later.  If you've ever been the victim of this sort of crime, you realize that normal items like that old baseball bat, the set of steak knives and that rusty hammer become your best friends when you're afraid of return visits.

Producer, Nasa turned to music that could provide both the comfort level needed and the energy needed to capture what Adam was experiencing.  For this, his source material was exclusively from The Mars Volta.  Nasa and Adam, both being big fans of the group, were able to take TMV's music and turn it into something totally new, and directed it toward the stress of the situation at hand.  There are no TMV remakes or tributes on this album, everything is original. TMV simply provided the paint that was used to illustrate a brand new work of art.  The track, Serpentine Steak Knives also features friends Subtitle and Elucid.

 
Throw in all the rage, sadness and shame that comes from near compliant neighbors and inept cops and you've got a compelling true life story.  All of this eventually lead to Adam having to pick up and leave a neighborhood that he once loved.  This album is a release of Adam's pent-up emotions from that incident. Dark Weapons is a powerful, personal, dramatic and passionate recording, and it's dedicated to all the victims in this world.

The album is presented for FREE at Uncommon's Online Store.

There is also a CD version for pre-sale that includes all the instrumentals, a poster and limited edition sticker.
