DUB MD PROMOTIONS PRESENTS... PRAVERB 'PROFESSIONAL HOBBYIST' + INCL. ACAPELLAS // FEAT: DJ GRAZZHOPPA x DON STREAT PRODUCTION: MUNESHINE x INPHY x LX-BEATS + MORE
'Professional Hobbyist' is a ten track journey that examines a man who is a blue collar man by day and an emcee by night. The project highlights the struggles associated with vocation, educational goals, personal life and a time consuming hobby. I make it perfectly clear that I would rather make a living as an emcee as opposed to completing a Masters in Business Administration.
The album features production from This Is Tomorrow, Manu Beats, LX-Beats, Skipless, Muneshine and more. The Brainstormerscrewmate, DJ Grazzhoppa, adds scratch hooks on three of the ten tracks including the title track. The project also boasts a feature from long time collaborator Don Streat.

Last month, Cris Cab joined Gym Class Heroes, as well as TPain and Outasight on tour in support of his new Echo Boom project. Below is a link to Episode 4 of his tour blog which gives his fans a look inside tour life as a young artist. In this episode, Cris and the band pass through South Dakota and Minnesota while on tour.

Continuing to stake their claim as one of the leading labels releasing consistently creative high grade hip-hop in the UK, AssociatedMinds present the brand-new video for Metabeats's 'EyeSeeYou' featuring Dubbledge.
The video, directed by the rising start Mike Tyler, perfectly translates the pearls of wisdom on racism, the media and UK police profiling that Edge drops so originally throughout the track and is a must see for anyone who appreciates hip-hop with class. We hope you enjoy.
The single is also out today (05/03/2012) and available worldwide at all the usual places.
