Gearing up to release their latest offering, The Rise of the Antihero, Hip-Hop duo Nefew have garnered support from energy drink giant, Red Bull. This union sees the double act made up of Polemikk and PA Double act as Ambassadors for the beverage, which is recognized as the world’s most popular energy drink.
“We’ve always been fans of the Red Bull products and I feel that we have similar values when it comes to our products,” Polemikk explains. “We are excited that they have offered us this opportunity as we are constantly looking for ways to separate ourselves from the norm.”
Nefew’s appreciation of Hip-Hop and the culture as well as their universal approach to creating music continues to be recognized by fans and media all around the world. This latest accolade inspires the duo to keep doing what they have successfully done for the last five years. With a slew of projects on deck that will see them well into 2013, the potential for this duo to increase their global presence is undeniable.
“Getting the acknowledgment from a renowned brand like Red Bull has been another sign of approval for our craft. It feels great to be appreciated by leaders of lifestyle and sports,” shares PA Double. “This is just another step bringing us closer to our goals and we are thankful for their support, “ he concludes.
The Rise of the Antihero will be available for free download later this year in conjunction with Red Bull.

The loving, successful couple, Ice T and Coco, are back for a third season of their beloved show, Ice Loves Coco, which premieres Sunday, October 28th at 10:30pm! The series moves to its regular 10pm ET/PT timeslot on Sunday, November 4th.
On the premiere episode, Coco decides to face her critics by doing a Licious fashion show during NYC's Fashion Week. Also on the premiere, Ice and Coco butt heads while building their dream home. Coco can't understand why Ice would want to delay the process by requesting a car elevator system in the garage. When Ice gently reminds his dear wife her shoe collection is just as important as his cars are to him, Coco contemplates relenting. Get a sneak peek of the premiere here:

Adam's World Weekly 10/22 - The Sultry, The Geeky, & More!
Welcome to the new week everyone. This past Saturday I woke up to find Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead on TV. A classic film, to say the least, and it brought an important question to mind - Christina Applegate in Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead, or Elisabeth Shue in Adventures in Babysitting? While I continue to mull that over, I have a handful of great features for you to check out this week. My interviews with geek goddess Emii, and sultry singer Jenna Andrews, are great reads, as is this weeks extra snarky edition of Pop Shots. If you're looking for some music to check out, I have a fresh ABX Podcast for your listening pleasure, and a true school hip-hop Vid Pick from Illus and Apathy. Topping everything off is a photo gallery from the seventh anniversary Enter The Cypher show.
If you dig any of these features please feel free to forward this email to a friend. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks, and enjoy!
Pop Shots - Big Accomplishments
Welcome to your weekly dose of pop world musings. Covering all things pop culture, this week Pop Shots is hitting you with thoughts on everything from Beyonce's super gig, to Drake's shiny new diploma, to Justin Bieber breaking records with his latest video, and since it's Pop Shots you know everything is seasoned with a little bit of attitude.
The word sultry can evoke a number of images, from a look given by someone from across a table, or across a room, to a woman in a dress knowing everything she has and working it as such. In the case of Jenna Andrews, sultry is the perfect description for her voice. On her latest single, “Kiss and Run,” even when she's singing about how she'd prefer you to not be there in the morning, it's being done in a way that makes you want to stay all night. To paraphrase an LMFAO hit, Jenna Andrews makes music that is sexy and she knows it.
With her Kiss and Run EP scheduled to be released next week, I caught up with the songstress with the sultry vocals to find out more about her, and her work. Andrews also discussed her recent trip to France that found her in a castle owned by Sting's manager, and the influence she hopes Kiss & Run will have on listeners, specifically in the bedroom.
In this age of geek chic, where Comic-Con has become nearly as big an event as the Super Bowl, and many people claim to be geeks, but only a small percentage actually are, pop singer Emii is the real deal. She can wax poetic about her favorite comic book characters, has a house full of martial arts weapons and sci-fi movie memorabilia, and throws up a Vulcan salute in pictures. When she brags about her boots, she's not talking about a brand name designer, but is instead beaming over the fantasy television show they came from.
Emii also has an impressive voice, and can not only sing, but rock out with the best of them. She's already had a song, “Mr. Romeo,” that featured Snoop Dogg, and performed in front of over 25,000 people in Lebanon as a part of the Energy Music Tour. By the time 2013 rolls around her full length album should be ready and things will really be kicked into high gear.
On a pleasant fall afternoon in New York City I caught up with the geek goddess to find out more about her passions, how her love of comics and the martial arts have affected her music, and which actress she's constantly being mistaken for. Emii also opened up her closet for me and told me about some of the most interesting things she has in it, and revealed how, of all things, a musical featuring the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles inspired her life.
We have hit the midpoint of October, which means two things - 1) I'm a year older (my birthday was yesterday), and 2) Halloween is coming up. This month's edition of my ABX podcast actually has very little to do with either of those things, I really just wanted to mention it was my birthday. What this month's podcast DOES have is ten new songs, including the ABX debuts of Big Ol' Dirty Bucket, Ollie Ox, and Jake Palumbo. I also run off at the mouth about a female rapper I had dinner with (start your rumor mill now... and then stop it pretty quickly thereafter), and send out a special message to the cute girl at my liquor store. It's a jam packed 45 minutes. Enjoy!
Snow Tha Product - Hola
Big Ol' Dirty Bucket - Mic Smoke
Ollie OX - Huff N' Puff
Toussaint Morrison - The Girl From The Liquor Store
G.T.P. - We Are (off of The Just Ron Files album)
Tah Phrum Duh Bush w/ Ciph Diggy, iAreConscious, Super King Armor, K. Gaines, Demostina, and Coole High - Nightmares In The Daytime
Jake Palumbo w/ Reef The Lost Cauze - Good Fight
Hired Gun - And For My Next Trick
Top $ Raz - ON
Coolzey - wire mother vs cloth mother
As always, thanks for reading and have a fantastic week.
