Dropping on the one year anniversary of the critically acclaimed Fela Soul, Bizarre Tribe serves as a fitting tribute to the artists which inspired its creation. Pairing select Pharcyde vocals with re-orchestrated productions created from the original Jazz, Soul and Funk recordings sampled throughout ATCQ’s extensive career, Gazaway effectively delivers a new and distinct way to experience the sounds which defined Hip-Hop’s “golden era.”

PR: Blueprint Announces New Album "Deleted Scenes" Oct 16th
The Rhymesayers artist and Weightless Recordings founder Blueprint, who dropped the critically-acclaimed album Adventures in Counter-Culture in 2011, announces the release of a new project called Deleted Scenes. The 15-track project will be released Tuesday October 16th on the independent imprint he has ran for over 10-years, Weightless Recordings.
In describing the Deleted Scenes album, Blueprint comments:
"I wrote and recorded at least 75 songs for my last album, Adventures in Counter-Culture. Only 15 of those songs were chosen for the final tracklist. Many of the remaining songs were good (some very good), but weren't chosen for the album because their vibe or message didn't fit the overall theme that I was going for. I soon realized that although these songs didn't fit into what Adventures in Counter-Culture ultimately turned into, they still played a significant role in telling my story. After revisiting many of these songs, I came to the conclusion that the best of them should be heard by the people who support me to the fullest, so I took some time to fully produce these songs. The result is Deleted Scenes"

1. Starting Out 2. Takin' It 3. Get Right - Featuring Dominique Larue 4. The American Dream - Featuring Adoria 5. True Love - Featuring Angelica Lee 6. Body Movin' 7.

The heavily conscious and somewhat controversial Karma is the second leak off VISUAL’s, Hello Hip Hop.
Karma serves as a bit of a history lesson with racism at the center, along with a harsh truth in the form of Karma.
“Now, don't get mad like this is prejudice pollution, cuz I personally think that race is useless, If you don't like this truth then YOU'RE racist or stupid, why you think brown & black ask for retribution Cuz we've always been oppressed so we are revolution, therefore we make the changes that cause evolution”
