Kottonmouth Kings Release Watch Out Video Featuring Twiztid


Kottonmouth Kings Release Watch Out Video Featuring Twiztid Online

Courtesy Kerosene Media.

The Kottonmouth Kings have released their new video for "Watch Out" featuring Twiztid online at http://www.kottonmouthkings.com/watchout. The song was released online last week as a free download for fans to promote the Kottonmouth Kings upcoming co-headlining tour with Twiztid. The Kaos & Kronik Tour with special guests Blaze and Big B is set to kick off on April 13th in Kansas City.

"We wanted to create a dope, dark underground video to accompany this collabo track. We came up with this twisted idea for the video that featured a fictitious serial killer character that tied into the song perfectly," commented The Dirtball. "Not only is the video itself sick, but it brings together two of the biggest forces in underground music today and gives fans a collaboration that they've been dying to see for years. I can't wait to kick off the Kaos & Kronik Tour and bring both group's together for one explosive show that will kill it every night!"
 
California’s reigning rip-hop originators, Kottonmouth Kings have long been a cornerstone of one of today’s most radical music movements. Combining mind-bending sonics, and fusing hip-hop, punk rock, and classic soul, The Kings have innovated and pioneered a unique signature sound that has set them apart from the pack and has fueled the band’s longevity and enduring popularity with a diverse international fan base. Kottonmouth Kings have proved their lasting staying power, building on a powerful DIY ethos and redefining the meaning of a self-empowered group by running their own company, touring and releasing albums on their own terms. Kottonmouth Kings will unleash their thirteenth studio album, "Mile High Club" on August 14th via the group’s own Suburban Noize Records.

Courtesy Park Street PR.

CAFE JASS is a jazz hip-hop concept album dreamt up by Canadian emcee iLLvibe after he and L.S. met DowntownSoul producer Beat Thief whilst on a guerilla tour of Europe in 2010. Melding a live jazz ambience, Beat Thief's trademark soul-infused hip-hop sound, and mature rhymes from the two indie hip-hop vets, this is a cohesive album for the discerning listener. With features on the album including US emcees Kwote1 (Chicago) and Yello Blac (Cali), as well as Canada's Mer and Rk ParX, not to mention DowntownSoul affiliates Non Applicable and Sam Steele, this is truly an international affair, with recording begun in London and since completed in Toronto and Hong Kong. Taking the idea of a live night at the vibrant but run-down Cafe Jass, the songs have an organic feel, interspersed with comedic snippets from a legendary Richard Pryor show.

iLLvibe is a Canadian emcee who was nominated for the Toronto Independent Music Awards' Best Rap Act in 2010, off the back of his "Sex, Love & Hip-Hop" album, and performances on the same bill as the likes of Pharoahe Monch, Pete Rock, Obie Trice, Slaughterhouse, Method Man, Lloyd Banks, Busta Rhymes and even Sean Paul. Having also worked with established artists such as Slakah the Beatchild and soul singer Lani Billard, Vibe has coordinated two tours, the WeAllKings tour of East Canada, and then Hip-Hop Revolution tour of Europe alongside L.S. Known for his prodigious work ethic, Cafe Jass represents Vibe's fourth full release since the beginning of 2011, following "In the Streets of iLLydelfya", "Just Around the Corner" and the well-received "Blunts & Roses". "Last Song" is his 19th video for a released track.

L.S. is a Canadian hip-hop artist, community activist and former professional snow-boarder. Releasing "All in Time" back in 2006, followed by 2008's seminal "In This Life", he has since spent time living in New Zealand and, alongside iLLvibe, launched the "Join the Hip-Hop Revolution" tour in 2010, independently touring the UK, Belgium, Holland and France. Most recently L.S. has turned his hand to his local community in Barrie, Ontario, leading the local "Occupy" movement and holding talks with the town's Mayor to reengage the youth generation, as well as running local artistry centre Unity Market & Studios.
