"Miami's Newest Indpendent Entertainment Company" Independently Major Entertainment presents T Tone the Voice hailing from Columbus Ohio! Ep dropping Summer 2012 Gotta Get It produced by The Runners (WetheBest/YMCMB) & Kenoe (Grammy-nominated and Multi Platinum producer has produced songs for artists such as Nicky Minaj "Beez n the Trap" , Jay Z "Everyday A Star is Born", Lil Wayne "Nightmares on the Bottom", Chris Brown, Mystikal and Snoop Dogg).
Today, Kid Static is celebrating the release of his new solo album, It Gleams. The 11-track album, released via Cobra Music, is Static's first since making his move from Chicago to Los Angeles and is a collection of music that brings together Static's penchant for quick-witted raps, melody, and genre-bending, electro-inspired production. To celebrate the release, Kid Static is giving fans a brand new non-album track, one that he's unveiling specially as a thank you to fans for their continued patience and support, "K.I.D."
"I wrote K.I.D in response to comments by people who had no idea where to put me or how to classify me," says Static about the quick-witted lyrics ("Rapping about rapping is like bragging about pissing," he raps) that are laid out on the new track. "The whole song is a description of who I am: a joker, a rapper, and an artist with more to offer than most of the fashion show rappers out here." Kid Static is also responsible for the beat, with a dark piano sample and up-tempo percussion that completes the yin-yang balance between menacing and lighthearted that's reflected throughout It Gleams.
PR: Nyce - New Video + Opening for Jeru the Damaja in Montreal
Montreal hip hop artist NYCE is one busy rapper in 2012 having already released two singles ‘Dopest on The Scene‘ and ‘Best Price‘ to great acclaim along with touring across Canada with American rapper Freeway and opening for Raekwon (Wu Tang Clan) back in March in his hometown of MTL. After landing himself on the April cover of Vandala Mag, NYCE is now letting loose his latest music video in support of his next single 24/7 ft. Tony “Touch Down” Davis & T. Money from his upcoming debut album “Certified” set for release later this year on local label Hustle Cartel Ent.
New Music Video - 24/ 7/ remix ft. T-Money, Tony 'Touchdown' Davis
Following two successful collaborative efforts alongside fellow producer/rapper The Alchemist as the power duo Gangrene -2010’s Gutter Water and 2012’s Vodka & Ayahuasca- and the 2011 gem with The Alchemist as Gangrene & Roc Marciano, the Greneberg EP; The Oxnard, California based beat-smith and emcee Oh No returns for a solo mission.
Oh No (born Michael Jackson; younger brother of Madlib and son of singer Otis Jackson) was granted unprecedented access to the Rudy Ray Moore / Dolemite audio archives and given free rein to slice, dice, chop and sample his way through the classic-yet-absolutely-filthy catalog. He was able to use legendary material from The Human Tornado, Petey Wheatstraw, the Dolemite Soundtrack and more, plus a multitude of previously unreleased and alternate acapellas and instrumentals. The end result is Ohnomite (available on 6-5-2012), a 19 track head-banging extravaganza of sloppy funk, dirty soul, and brainy lyricism, all aimed at one thing- making your head nod and your ass shake. And when you add to that guests spots from the likes of Evidence, Phife Dawg, The Alchemist, Erick Sermon, Rapper Pooh, MED, Guilty Simpson, Roc Marciano, Sticky Fingaz, Chino XL, Roc C, Prozack Turner, Termanology, Frank Nitt and this cut with MF Doom “3 Dollars.”
