Early this spring Wais P will release his new album, Pimpin Saved My Life, but before then, the rapper is releasing his latest mixtape, PV$$Y RICH, out today and available for download exclusively on DatPiff.
This is his first musical release since the Happy As Fuck EP debuted at #8 on the iTunes Hip Hop charts last Fall. Mod Sun also recently released his first book in December, Did I Ever Wake Up. "My life has come to a point where I often find myself asking, 'did I ever wake up?' I really am living the dream," says the Bloomington, Minnesota native. Mod Sun will be co-headlining the 2013 Road Trippin' tour with good friend Cisco Adler starting on February 1st.
Like Paraphernalia, with Trapper's Delight SL again teamed up with a single producer, this time M16, the Alabama producer best known for tracks like "Duffle Bag Boy" by Playaz Circle, Young Jeezy's "I Do" Ft. Jay-Z & Andre 3000, and Yelawolf's Heart Of Dixie mixtape. And to help bring the project to life, SL also partnered with Hoodrich/Grand Hustle DJ, DJ MLK. "M16's production is so epic, and I've been working with him for a minute, so the chemistry was natural," explains SL of the collaboration. "And DJ MLK is a street music connoisseur; he was able to offer guidance and help to bring everything together."
Putting the inter-group tensions of Mobb Deep behind him, Havoc is back with a brand new single and album announcement. Featuring guest vocals from Royce Da 5'9" plus production from Havoc himself, "Tell Me To My Face" is the hard-hitting first single off Havoc's upcoming album 13. Coming to stores soon, 13 is the proper follow-up to Hav's 2007 solo debut The Kush. More details coming soon.
BIOGRAPHY: Daniel Stanush and Diego Chavez are A.M. Architect, a Boston-based duo that blends live instruments and electronic production into emotive, elegant compositions. Originally from San Antonio, Texas but currently residing in Boston, Massachusetts, they have performed live with Tycho, Jimmy Edgar, Mux Mool, and Eliot Lipp.
ABOUT PATTERN LANGUAGE: On February 5, 2013, A.M. Architect will release their third studio record, Pattern Language, via Toronto's Urbnet Records. Lush, melodic guitar layers and electric piano are broken apart, rebuilt and spread over a rhythm section that fuses hip-hop and beat music. Daniel describes their process: “We’d record ideas really quickly--some piano, bass, guitar--and then immediately flip it into something new. Then we'd record more ideas on top of it and flip it again, often ending up with five or six different compositions from the same source material. Some of those ideas spin off to become new songs, so the process starts over.”
The album name is an extension of the concepts in Christopher Alexander's 1977 urban design book, "A Pattern Language." The book's hypertext format encourages us to collaborate, and examines how our environments and ideas form networks and patterns. Watch for remix material available to the public soon.
This past summer I was fortunate enough to travel the country while doing what I love. I got to see almost every city in the U.S. that I thought I'd never get a chance to see. While on the road, I shot a lot of footage for a song called "I Gotta Go" off the Vintage album. That song basically summed up the tour. I felt that I needed to go out and explore the world to be able to grow as an artist and as a man. Today, I am proud to share with you the official video for that song.

MP3: DJ Toure - "She Likes It (Remix)" Ft. B-Legit, D-Lo & London

"I wanted to bring together two different generations of hip-hop," says Toure of the song, referring to B-Legit and D-Lo, two artists that, while separate by age, both have made their imprint in the Bay Area scene. "Even though you might not think it works," adds Toure," it does. They still compliment each other." While the original version of this track was released last year, including a video, Toure's remix offers something new for listeners by delivering a new feel. "I wanted to reintroduce the song with a different vibe, musically," explains Toure. "I wanted to showcase my production and creativity, to give the song a nice, feel-good vibe."
