WHO: Fast Rising Hip-Hop Artist Jeury San  -  WHAT: Releases New Single "Love And Other Drugs"

WHERE: WorldWide  http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/jeurysan or http://www.datpiff.com/Jeury-San-Emotions-Untitled-mixtape.264812.html .

WHEN: November 15, 2011                                                                                                                                             

Jeury San Born November 24 1987 believes it all starts wth You. The Supporter, The Friend, The Fan, and Everyone involved with creating New Culture. Throughout his journey with music he has found himself being an avid supporter of music instilled with vivid imagery. Heart Felt lyrical content infused with new age melodies and song concepts that usually have multiple meanings can easily make Jeury San the next Aspiring hip hop artist to look out for. While becoming a known name throughout the Tri-state area, he is defined as the true meaning of an artist, rapper, and producer. San believes in order to stay current in this fast paced industry you must follow the aphorism, "You are only as good as your last song."

Inspired by West Coast Legend, Dr. Dre, San states, "He knew he wanted to become an artist the moment after hearing the critically acclaimed album Chronic 2001." Also influenced by artist such as Joe Budden, Kid Cudi, Kanye West and many more he understands that he could never really pin point where his direct sound is derived from. He is a student of his art and welcomes any and all genre's that compliment his style that you now see today.

As his official album "Emotions Untitled" releases on Sept 27th 2011, Jeury and The Imagination Muzic Imprint showcase their ability to make a classic independent record without the likes of a major distribution. Each song shows a different emotion or current state of mind that Jeury was actually in at the time. With songs from "Maria Sharapova" to "Love and Other Drugs" to show his ability to hit each demographic. He has the versatility and creative mindset to push the bar of unique song making at all times.

MP3: Baby Jaymes Releases What Ever Happened To Baby James EP

Courtesy Audible Treats.

Following last week's release of the soulful single "Bump My Head," Oakland native Baby Jaymes is excited to release his new EP, What Ever Happened To Baby James. The five-track project carries a sound that jumps from vintage to boundary pushing, showing off a range and diversity that the rising singer-songwriter is fast becoming known for.

Standout tracks include Baby Jaymes' R&B rendition of rapper 50 Cent's early career hit "21 Questions," with Jaymes forgoing samples for live instrumentation and effortlessly flipping the lyrics into a sing-song ballad. "Streets," with Bay favorite The Jacka, features Jaymes singing his woes and praises of Oakland, while "California" flips a driving, horn-heavy instrumental into one of the more fun love songs you'll hear to close out the year.

Stream "21 Questions" here: http://soundcloud.com/audibletreats/baby-jaymes-21-questions .

Purchase What Ever Happened To Baby Jaymes here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/what-ever-happened-to-baby/id478300246 .

For folks based in The Bay Area, you're invited to attend Baby Jaymes' album release party tonight, Tuesday, November 15th, @ Shashamane 2507 Broadway Oakland, CA 94612 10pm-2am. Physical CD's and merchandise will be on sale at the party.

The Raw is back! Babygrande Records presents the title track, "Sparta" from M.O.P. & Snowgoons upcoming LP which will be released on 11-22-2011.

Hailing from Brownsville, Brooklyn, Billy Danze and Lil Fame have solidified their reputation as iconic lyricists through their years of hard-hitting rhymes and unparalleled tenacity. Never compromising their style and having shared the mic with industry greats such as Jay-Z, Jadakiss, Styles P, Guru, ODB, Busta Rhymes, and Redman, just to name a few, the duo has rightfully earned its status as one of the most revered acts in hip-hop today.

In Late July 2011, Billy Danze took to Conspiracy Worldwide Radio to break the news that M.O.P.'s upcoming LP would be a collaborative effort with German & Danish production team, the Snowgoons. Speaking on the album, Danze said, "[Snowgoons] just sent us some fire... those dudes are incredible... when you hear this project, you're going to be satisfied as an M.O.P. fan and a Snowgoons fan." Ensuring fans around the world that this will be one of their most diverse sounding albums, the Mash Out Posse member went on to praise the Snowgoons, proclaiming, "they've got everything... they're blazing through and coming from different angles. These guys providing us with that dramatic sound, with those theatrical sounds, with that hard hip-hop... they supplied us with everything. I'm really psyched about this project." Further, listeners can prepare for what Danze and Lil' Fame consider "their best project in 10 years."
