"I wanted to focus more on storytelling and having a collection of songs with subject matters that tie into one another," says Black Milk, revealing that No Poison No Paradise is also structured conceptually. The album functions as a collection of dreams inside the head of Sonny Jr., a character Black Milk has created. In "Perfected On Puritan Ave.," for example, Sonny flashes back to a time when he and his childhood friend are playing basketball and aspiring to be NBA players or rap artists. The song later flashes forward to see Sonny living some of his childhood dreams.

Canadian hip-hop producer Maxwell Benson premieres latest video "Sadat X iI Back" and releases EP Dawn Of a New Day - combining a golden ear moxie with an undeniable 21st century flair to be presented on the anniversary of Kool Herc's historical August 11, 1973 hip hop party in the Bronx.
Philly emcee/charmer Rich Quick has been a vital (if underrated) part of the local music scene for over a decade. Today, Rich is readying his new EP Sad Songz, out August 20 on Ben Frank Recordings.
Reflecting his rising profile, Rich enlisted the formidable New York production duo Streece (beat makers Stress and Chuck Treece) for production work on Sad Songz. The two have worked with heavy weights from Ghostface Killah to Lil Wayne, and their partnership with Rich is capable of achieving the same heights, crossing over from hip-hop die hards to the Pitchfork crowd.
Guest features on Sad Songz include Reef the Lost Cauze, Rakaa Iriscience, and Jakk Frost. Lead single "Travelin Man" premiered on Respect-mag.com and was posted on HipHopdx, Skope, Rapreviews, among others. Subsequently, Rich released a remix for the track featuring Reef the Lost Cauze and Rakaa Iriscience.
Sad Songz demonstrates an artist with emotional depth and a very Philadelphia style fearlessness in expressing it. Take the track "Say You Love Me." Rich says it’s a "G" song. "When Stress first played the beat, I didn't know what I wanted to do. But when you hear a song with a sample, it gives you a concept right there. How you flip is it is up to you."
While Sad Songz contains cuts like "Lonely" and "Cry", Rich insists he wasn’t sad when while recording the EP. Rather, he says, “This is what came out when I got into the studio with Streece.”
Rich is most well known for his pure, boom-bap style of hip-hop. Sonically, Sad Songz is a departure from that, reflecting his expanding tastes, expanding horizons, and effortless versatility. "I picked beats that reflected where I was in my life at that moment," says Rich. "I could have picked a Stress's boom bap beats but I gravitated towards these. I guess you could call this "alternative" but I really try to stay away from categorizing."
Born in New Jersey, Rich has been part of the Philly hip-hop scene for over a decade. In 2002 he released his first solo project, Get Rich Quick, followed up by The Movement LP in 2004. During that time, Rich performed with every Philly legend you can think of, from The Roots to Freeway, becoming a kid brother of sorts. "I learned a well-rounded view of the art of emceeing, experimenting with song structure, unique rhyme patterns and flows from all the artists who came before me here."
In April 2012 Rich Quick released the mixtape “I'm With The DJ,” hosted by DJ NoPhrillz and Benja Styles, garnering critical acclaim. Sad Songz will be released August 20, 2013.
"Over The Edge" is a song that comes from a place of personal experience that hopefully can resonate with listeners who may be dealing with the same issues when feeling overwhelmed by life's circumstances. MC Jin adds "a big part of my testimony is that through all the setbacks and discouraging turn of events that may have occurred in my life so far, there's always been someone in the form of an anchor to keep me from drifting into total despair. Be it through family or close friends, God has always shown His presence."
