Audio: "4 Da Stripas (I'm Tippin')" - Mr. Fresh Boy a.k.a. Mars Co-op of The Roots
Courtesy Sims Media.
He may resemble Mars Co-op of the legendary Roots Crew fame, but make no mistake -"Mr. Fresh Boy" is a persona all his own. The alter ego of "Clones" emcee Mars Co-op, Mr. Fresh Boy has a penchant for pimpin', and on the new track "4 Stripas", he makes it rain in his unique, "crispy clean" way. This one ain't for kids...shout out to those working girls who get it!

For this 21th episode, 2 years after his launch, Just One Record receives Fashawn, the young rapper of Fresno, California… You will discover that the album which most influenced him(it) is not Nas's Illmatic, as a lot can think of it, but an artist doubtless a little more unexpected. He will speak to us then about his next album to come, completely produced by Exile.
With a slew of accomplishments under his belt and a POWERFUL name in the national rap scene, BIG GOV comes with His signature voice, hypnotic flow, and straight to the point delivery on "TIME & MONEY". Combined with a SLAPPIN beat, this track PROVES to be ANOTHER classic in BIG GOV'S career.
Adam: "I know, I know, I neglected to do a podcast in January. I didn't fall off the face of the earth, I just wanted to tweak the show a bit and make some improvements. I'm not trying to fix something that isn't broken, this is more like waxing an already nice car.
I've always wanted beats behind me during my mic breaks, but didn't want them to simply be any old beats. After a few convos with my buddy Ace Ha about something completely non-music related, I decided it would be cool to feature one producer each episode, with each mic break having a different beat by that producer playing in the background. Since speaking with Ace Ha spurred the idea, and he sends me beats on a regular basis, this month he's the first ever ABX Podcast featured producer!
In addition to Ace Ha providing the beats, I have 12 new songs for you this month, making this a jam packed podcast. Enjoy!

Video: Ill Doots - From Dorm Rooms to Stages Everywhere
Courtesy Dexter I.
Who was ILL DOOTS? The search revealed a squad of multidisciplinary artists with a shared passion and drive to work hard to spread their music. Four-years later and with graduation on the horizon, the Doots are really falling into a musical stride, and as a result the buzz has been growing everyday. The group has had such a quick rise from dorm room mixtapes to east coast tours and international radio plays. All of this is on account of their work ethic and inexhaustible drive to succeed and be heard. "We don't wish on stars, we transform into them."
Video: Swizz Beatz "Battling Was Like a Tour For Cassidy"
DJ Vlad: Swizz Beatz revealed his past experiences attending numerous rap battles that Cassidy would participate in. He stated the he would actually go with Cassidy to local projects in many different areas and battle with the top spitter of that particular block. Swizz compared battling for Cassidy to touring, since he was always facing off against other MC's. Swizz then shed light on his own past growing up as a freestyle battle rapper before he even got into DJ'ing or producing music.
