Courtesy Yo! PR.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE // Known for his electrifying and stunning performances at NBC's hit TV show "The Voice: Season 2" (2012) where Moses Stone entertained millions of viewers nationwide with his unmatchable persona and dynamic stage presence, gained him the respect from music fans and worldwide superstar Christina Aguilera, who picked Moses for her team. Stone was the first emcee/singer ever in the history of "The Voice".
Fast forward, the aspiring and much talented Washington DC born and Hollywood based rapper/singer is excited to officially announce the release of his highly anticipated debut mixtape, "Resilient", which will be available for download on November 13, 2012.
"My 'Resilient' mixtape was based on the last year of my life. I've had success, failure, and experienced the good, bad and the ugly that the entertainment industry comes with: Coming off a hit TV show like 'The Voice', making history being the first of my kind having it all, to then fighting to keep the momentum alive on your own, getting out of a bad deal and situation and come back stronger and more knowledgeable about the snakes, fake and real people in the industry. People will find out the real story about my time on 'The Voice' and what happened afterwards as well. This is my real life! I am 'Resilient'."
Spearheaded by the first single, "Pray For Them" (click here to listen), which is already making a huge impact online, the craze for Moses Stone continues after he rocked "The Voice" stage and the breakthrough success of his debut runaway single, "My Moment", which caused a whirlwind on iTunes earlier this year.
His mixtape, "Resilient", is an audacious masterpiece of energy and sound. With the mixtape days away from dropping, Moses Stone is ready to show his undeniable talent with an onslaught of new singles and this is only the beginning for this rising star who is already proving that his sound is unmatched. And with good reason, Stone has kept his name ringing from coast to coast, even after "The Voice", with his scorching singles and he is refusing to slow down from his increasing momentum.
Moses Stone is a Pop artist that incorporates elements of Hip-Hop, Pop and Motown, as a rapper, singer, and piano player. It's what fuses his unique new flavor and style, which is a tremendously welcome change as well as a breath of fresh air.
Moses has had an early start of success at a young age known as "Young Moses" (aka That Dude Young Moses), an acclaimed performer who has appeared on MTV's "Say What Karaoke" and BET's hit show 106 & Park's "Wild Out Wednesday" where he earned first place in both competitions as well as the respect of the audience. Furthermore, Moses performed live on Showtime for the main event of the boxing match between Lateef Kayode vs. Antonio Tarver, walking Kayode out to the ring performing his single "My Moment".
Moses also strongly believes in community awareness and actively participates in various fundraisers and charity events including, Kicks 4 Kids, and fundraising for domestic violence and abuse.

Welcome to the new week everyone. Here's hoping this week is a little easier on the East Coast than the pervious one. Hurricane Sandy knocked out my power for three full days, and some folks in my area have been in the dark for a full week! The damage done was jaw dropping (I posted some pictures, and thoughts, here), and I was scampering around various towns in order to get work done. As you can tell by this week's update, I succeeded (yes, you totally want me on your zombie apocalypse blogging team). With The Voice's live shows starting tonight you definitely want to check out my predictions for what's going to happen. I've accurately predicted the winner each of the past two seasons! In addition to that feature I have an all new Pop Shots, an in-depth interview with DJ Vadim, a photo gallery from Lee's show in NYC, and a great Vid Pick from Vinnie Scullo.
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 - Everyone Gets a Raise
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 Taylor Swift raising the bar for album sales, to some very famous voices raising funds for hurricane victims, to a Spice Girl raising a court ordered stop sign to a paparazzi, and since itís Pop Shots you know everything is seasoned with a little bit of attitude.
For each of the first two seasons I have accurately predicted the winner of The Voice after the Battle Round. For season three they changed the rules a bit, so I decided to wait until after the new Knockout Round to put together my thoughts on this seasonís contestants. Another rule change, the fact that each team doesnít have to be represented in the final four, throws a pretty big wrench into the prediction process, as well, but Iím still going to go through the contestants team by team before giving my final analysis of who I feel will come out on top. Here we go!
According to DJ Vadim, ďThe way to keep going as a musician is to always try new things, try new forms of expression. You canít keep making the same pasta dish night after night. If you do youíll get bored.Ē Judging by his discography, including his most recently release, Donít Be Scared, Vadim is in no danger of getting bored.
This week I caught up with the producer extraordinaire to talk about all things music. Vadim also discussed politics, growing out of love with a lot of hip-hop, and how an unfortunate Google autofill associated with his name is causing him a massive headache while attempting to get a Visa.
Audio: James John & Landon Wordswell - "Move On (Antonio)"
Landon Wordswell and James John team up once again for a duo effort piecing together a new EP. This song highlights a storyline the two artists mesh together to explain the beginning and end of troubled teen losing himself in his community. Product of environment? Classic case of Nature vs Nurture. Landon & James plan on releasing "Move On (Antonio)" as their first single for their upcoming EP.
Brought to you by the LSD camp, Sacramento natives SoCrates and Sour Beats offer 7 tracks of intoxicating rhythms, clever syncopations, and huge drums that'll basically blow your fucking speakers out.. for FREE.
ďIím living in a world with no consequencesĒ, Sacramento emcee/producer dahLak describes the cultural landscape heís found himself in. In rap, you can have far more drinks than hangovers. You can f*ck with no strings attached and spend with no worries. No health problems will ensue, the money grows on trees. Fantasy is fun! Right?
The problem is itís not easy to leave; as dahLak articulates with his pre-album mixtape Of No Consequence. Itís too fun, it sounds so good. You can party to it, itís sexy and seductive and it confirms what we all want to believe. And for those good times, those great moments, those high-points, it has its purpose. It obviously canít last, but while itís here, donít think to hard about it. After all, it is Of No Consequence.
