Uptown XO (of Diamond District) is preparing to drop his latest mixtape The Color Grey October 1st. In anticipation Secret Society & MMG have the new video for the standout track “Good Vibes”. The song sounds exactly like the title: AB The Pro builds the beat around a soothing vibe chord change that XO compliments with unorthodox flow. Mirroring the musical mood, the video's director Blackie T takes us to a late summer barbecue in full effect: savory chicken and hot dogs grillin’, homies chllin’ and playing cards.

A few weeks ago I announced on my that I would be releasing a free songs for the fans. After a small delay, here is the song:
Since Flowers for My Father is nearly complete, I wanted to make something for the fans as a sign of gratitude for being so patient. This isn’t a song that was cut from a project or anything like that, it was made for the sole purpose of giving it away. I contacted my friend Andreikelos (Equinox Records) and he produced the song for me and my new friend Shawn Coss was kind enough to create this original piece of art to accompany it.
For those of you who aren’t familiar, Virginia Woolf was a very famous writer from the early 1900s who ended up committing suicide by putting rocks in her dress and walking into the ocean. I always thought this was morbidly poetic and I even found myself really inspired after reading the letter she left behind for her husband, so I decided to write a song about it. I really hope you guys like it. Feel free to download it for free and share with your friends. While you're at it, feel free to download the other 7 songs I just put up for free as well. Thanks.
Just a quick reminder that if you are interested in pre-ordering the Best of Sudden Death 2 CD compilation and getting the bonus Volume 3 digital download you have two weeks left to place your order.
My Kickstarter campaign ends at 4:00 PM EDT on Friday, September 21st. To get the digital Volume 3 you just need to pledge at least $15 for the digital copy of the compilation. Kickstarter is the only way I’m accepting pre-orders and the only way you can get Volume 3 of the compilation, not to mention the t-shirt, USB key, Sudden Death digital discography, or the original painting of the album cover, and more.
On a related note, I am just $95 short of my stretch goal of $3000 which would allow me to turn the area under my basement stairs into a sound booth. Who wants to be the one to push me over the edge?
A few weeks ago, Cris Cab, Big Sean, Wyclef, and director Alex Moors went to Sun Valley California on a record breaking 110 degree scorching day to shoot a video for Good Girls. Check out a first glimpse of the video and how it was made here:
