Botzy is the consummate Minneapolis rap hustler, recognizing that work ethic extends into every facet of his musical journey. You'll see it on stage and off, the hungry approach to both his craft and his movement, and the passion behind his art from all sides culminates in an impressive final product. While cutting teeth since 2009 rapping in the genre-bending live band Culture Cry Wolf, Botzy's been able to fine tune his voice and energy enough to handle both solo and group creative efforts.

The Rugged Man is currently on tour supporting his critically acclaimed new album Legends Never Die, and after a recent stop in Germany, R.A. caught up with DLTLLY for an in-depth video interview. In the clip, R.A. speaks on his tenure with major labels Jive and Priority, explaining that (contrary to industry rumor) neither label ever dropped him, and that he actually paid to get out of his Jive contract.

"Welcome to the Trayne Station" has already gathered a fan base even though it was just recently released and is his first official LP. His skills as a producer also set him apart from the rest because of his ability to mix, master, and record all his own tracks. A music video to "Come Get It" featuring Jarren Benton of Funk Volume dropped on March 12th on YouTube and was directed by SMKA in Atlanta. At such a young age and with so much talent that rivals even the best of rappers, expect to be hearing more of Trayne in the not to distant future!

TORONTO, ON - Fans of iconic Toronto rap group Notes to Self can mark June 11, 2013 on their calendars as the day the group's second full-length record Target Market [Recoil] is set to be unleashed on the world. To celebrate, Notes To Self is premiering a brand new video for "Recoil [Crimson]", a pristine example of the cinematic grittiness that Notes embodies, via today.

The critically-acclaimed group is comprised of rappers Swamp Donkey and Roshin, producer & rapper Bronze One and DJ Dopey, the resident DJ on MTV Canada, and the winner of the prestigious 2003 DMC World DJ Championships, the highest award in the DJ world. The same articulate flows, scrupulous production and original sampling style that has grown Notes' fanbase around the world since their inception in 2009, have now culminated in this mesmerizing record that sees them at their pinnacle.

After releasing three top notch videos for tracks off the new album - including "Used to Be Dark" (with Lee Gaul), "Mr. Polite Remix" (with Fashawn) and "Skylight [In Between]"- Notes adds the new video for "Recoil [Crimson]", co-directed by Notes' Bronze One and Benjamin Young Hart, to the list. "Recoil [Crimson]" is a solid follow up to their popular video for "Nobody" which garnered over 84,000 YouTube views for Notes To Self, one of the tightest & hardest working acts in Canadian music.

Target Market [Recoil] bolsters an eclectic roster of collaborators, including renowned artists Evidence of Dilated Peoples and Fashawn. Toronto talent Lee Gaul, Arowbe and Beatface are also featured on the album, lending it a refreshing diversity of musical tastes.

Following their 2009 debut full-length A Shot in the Dark, Target Market [Recoil] has already received kudos from some of hip hop's most trustworthy critics. The album debuted at #5 on EARSHOT!'s national Hip Hop/Rap Charts and XXL Magazine labeled the group "as masters of versatile lyricism".

The members of Notes to Self also boast impressive lists of notable independent achievements. As an in-demand producer, Bronze One has produced songs for artists such as Estelle, Brandy and Dido. DJ Dopey is a recognized turntablist, having won awards at the DMC World DJ Championships and Canada's DJ Stylus Awards. It's no surprise that the rap collective was quickly thrust into the limelight after opening for Talib Kweli and De La Soul on the 20th Anniversary 3 Feet High and Rising Tour in 2009. Pairing their achievements with other creative projects like a custom line of New Era NTS 59/FIFTY fitted caps, the foursome continues to stand out as multi-faceted artists.

Check for tour plans to be announced soon.
