Childish Gambino, the moniker for actor Donald Glover, has emerged as one of the most exciting young talents in music. With a unique blend of hip-hop with multiple genres, combined with lyrical genius, Childish Gambino has gone from a viral cult following to a mega sensation. Spin Magazine praises, "...[his EP's] all have showcased Glover's fiercely clever, plugged-nose flow, which recalls both Lil Wayne's verbal skywriting and Kanye West's vulnerable-braggart defensiveness."

Debut album, CAMP, is due out November 15th, 2011 on Glassnote Records.

Following his sold-out IAMDONALD Tour and dates on the travelling hip-hop festival Rock The Bells, Childish Gambino will hit 11 cities along the East Coast for the Sign Up Tour.

League510 are back again, and with their new video, "S.O.S.," the usually fun-loving and party-ready group has decided to take their music to a more serious place, one that focuses on the harsh realities of day-to-day life in Oakland. "The main inspiration for this song was the senseless violence that happens in our city, Oakland, CA," remarks TK, who spits one of the songs two verses, with fellow League member Mr. Knowitall holding down the other.

Rapper/Producer Kwame releases the first offering in a series of mixtapes which will wrap up the year.  "SCIENTIST OF SOUND: VOL 1", is a special blend of some of the records that Kwame has been blessed enough to produce over the past few years.

"I couldn't fit them all on one CD but this should be a good 'Kwame, the producer, starter pack', and I hope you guys enjoy what I have been working so hard on for years. I try my best to be a well-rounded producer and musician but still remember where I originate from... HIP HOP! The reason I call this "Scientist of Sound” is because every track I make, I try to take it further.  I experiment, hoping for the best outcome."

Having worked on the album for some time now the duo feel they have constructed a project that will hit a nerve with its listeners. Tracks like "Had Enough" and "They Coming" focus on the pressures and hardships of modern society while songs like "Heaven" take a more positive and forward-thinking stance. The vintage hip hop sound is still the underlying force behind their music but this project is much more aggressive musically and lyrically. Awon's delivery is firmer and Kameleon ventures into newer territory sample-wise. The result is an album hip hop heads young and old can feel.

Wu-Tang affiliate Hell Razah was the victim of a horribly timed medical emergency last year, which delayed his latest album Heaven Razah and left him unable to participate in promo activities that most artists take for granted.  Consequently, we reached out to R.A. The Rugged Man and Timbo King to help us shoot the video for the Heaven Razah track "Return Of The Renaissance," while holding out hope that Razah could eventually participate.  Check here to watch the finished video, complete with an introductory message from the Sunz Of Man MC himself (his first public sighting since the surgery).

All songs written and recorded on the spot or freestyles off the top on this project. Medicine beat doses by the beat-shaman Shamalex.
 
Enter the mind of L.I.F.E. Long as he takes you on a freestyle journey something that is lost in the culture. Not many can actually write a complete song off the spot and record it nor freestyle off the top almost like it was written. L.I.F.E. Long and Shamalex take you on a journey where the mind captures the moment and it is exposed as the happening happens.
 
This first prelude is the intro to the LP mixed entirely by DJ Afar (from "Afar Life Long Travel Through Sound") enjoy this first taste until the album releases later in the year! This is something for the true Hip-Hop purest...
