@DevoSpice Update - Pre-order The Best of Sudden Death

Devo Spice Update - Pre-order The Best of Sudden Death

Hey everyone,

I keep forgetting not everyone stalks me on Twitter and Facebook, so in case you missed it I am now accepting pre-orders for the new Best of Sudden Death compilation.  This is a 2 CD set containing the best songs from the various Sudden Death albums I released over the years, plus several updated songs, and a large number of remixed and remastered songs.

If you pre-order the compilation through Kickstarter you can get a third bonus digital album, an exclusive t-shirt, a download of all the Sudden Death albums, (including the old ones which have been out of print for years), and more, depending on how much you pledge.  And there is no charge for shipping so if you want the album this is the best way to get it.  And if you want me to be your butler this is the only way to get that.

To pre-order the album go here and click Back This Project:

And I need to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who has pledged already.  I launched the campaign a week ago and it was funded in 6 hours!

Also, the other day I figured out the track list for the compilation now that the poll results are in.   I pasted the full track list below in case you didn’t see the update.

Thanks again, everyone!  And please help me spread the word about the Kickstarter.  If you are so inclined I’ve even created a banner and will be created an audio promo as well very soon.  You can get the banner here:

@JesseAbraham Debuts New Single and Music Video

“I Ain't Shit; I'm The Shit”, the latest single off Jesse Abraham’s upcoming I Am Water album, explores a duplicity that exists within us all. Sometimes we feel invincible, and other times we feel invisible. The song is an internal dialogue in which the notion of staying true to oneself emerges as the most harmonious option. “It turns out that a battle within ourselves only does damage to ourselves” explains Jesse.

Hip-hop mogul Chris Lighty died Thursday morning after apparently shooting himself in the head in his Bronx apartment, sources told the Daily News.

Lighty, 44 — a longtime manager of 50 Cent, Diddy, Ja Rule and Mariah Carey — was found dead inside his South Riverdale apartment about 11:30 a.m., police sources said.

It appeared he died from a bullet to his head, sources said. A gun was recovered next to his body.

Law enforcement sources said Lighty — who divorced his wife, Veronica, last year — may have been dealing with financial struggles, including owing about $5 million to the IRS.


From Wikipedia:

Violator (founded by Chris Lighty) specializes in managing the careers of hip hop and R&B performers and is also a record label. Included among Violator's past and present clients are Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes, Q-Tip, Missy Elliott, Fantasia, Mýa, Diggy Simmons, Cormega, Ja Rule, Mobb Deep, LL Cool J, Nas, JoJo Pellegrino, and 50 Cent. Violator has released two compilation albums of material from its artists: Violator: The Album, Vol. 1 and Violator: The Album, Vol. 2. Vol. 1 features Q-Tip's first solo hit single, "Vivrant Thing". Chris is also the new manager for Sean "Diddy" Combs.

Jon-Oh! Causes Major Noise With Debut Mixtape "Pre-Ejaculation"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Aspiring Hip-Hop newcomer Jon-Oh! is making major noise with his debut mixtape, "Pre-Ejaculation", which is now available for free download on Scoring over 26,000 views, 25.000 streams, and more than 10,000 downloads in a short period of time, "Pre-Ejaculation" is one of the most popular mixtapes recently released via the #1 online mixtape platform from an up-n-coming emcee.

"To see this many people digging my mixtape is a bit intoxicating honestly, but it also gives me the urge to put out more quality music for my fans and Hip-Hop lovers," says the Charleston, SC native.

Jon-Oh! or Mr. No Condom, as he is also known, has been developing a strong and dedicated fanbase via various online songs and videos for a short time now and it is surely only a matter of time before more people know of the name!

Son of a hustler, Jon- Oh! got an early taste for the good life and admits his exposure to such a lifestyle heavily influenced his work-rate today. Inspired by the head-nodding Hip-Hop beats of the 90's, Jon-oh! began to experiment with his craft writing lyrics at the tender age of ten.

With a style of his own that is rare to find, Jon-Oh! takes every element of emceeing from backpack cyphering to storytelling and weaves them as one harmonious, yet sporadic flow.

Creator of the "No Condom" concept and movement, this Charleston native infected the urban genre with his unique and fresh sound on his blazing debut mixtape, "Pre-Ejaculation".

Jon-Oh! is an heavily covered artist in the press with major features in prestigious and popular publications such as Hip Hop Weekly, TRUE Magazine, HYPE Magazine, and Yo! Raps Magazine.
