With the fifth and final leak before Marco Polo drops his highly-anticipated free-LP, Newport Authority 2, Marco states "I did a remix for "Stand Up" off the brand new Adrian Younge presents The Delfonics project (who am I big fan of, y'all should cop anything he's a part of.) Adrian sent me the album early and I made this beat. Tragedy was originally gonna lay down one verse on this on some freestyle sh*t, but once I started hearing his bars I refused to let this be a one verse song! Three verses later and appropriate hook by Slap aka Fizzy Womack aka Lil Fame we have the "Stand Up" remix. Tragedy will have an alternate version of this song on his upcoming album as well. Now please enjoy the final leak from Newport Authority 2!"

Jarren Benton has a reputation for extremes, and since joining the roster of independent powerhouse label Funk Volume, also home to Hopsin, Dizzy Wright, SwizZz, and DJ Hoppa, he's been growing his bite. Earlier this month, the Atlanta-based rapper released the cover art and lead single, "Razor Blades And Steak Knives," from his Funk Volume debut, My Grandmas Basement, and today, Jarren is excited to announce an official release date for the album of June 12th, and along with it, Jarren and Funk Volume are releasing the official video for "Razor Blades And Steak Knives."
Video: Goldini Bagwell (of Sandpeople) - "Secondhand Smoke" ft. DJ Delay
Sandpeople emcee Goldini Bagwell has a brand new EP coming out May 7th on Heaven Noise Recordings. The project is titled Secondhand Smoke; a follow up to his previously released Chainsmoke album and production is once again handled entirely by Pmpee Beats of Lahti, Finland. Today we present visuals for the title track off the new EP.
he Quickening 2: Acceleration puts us face to face with many topics that reflect what we are experiencing in the now. It takes a lot of foresight and courage for an mc/lyricist to approach a topic like the end of the world as we know it, and KIL RIPKIN executes this to perfection with "Ragnarok". The heavy hitting drums and infectious "Rock, rock on" refrain pull the listener into a vortex of awakening, sending them to google and read up on the mind-altering information woven intricately into the track. "Ragnarok" is the first single from The Quickening 2: Acceleration.
Wassup ya’ll, This is Preach Muzak. We just dropped another video, “Pray”! I appreciate your support in posting “Heaven 2 Hell”. If you do choose to post “Pray” please @PREACHMUZAK on Twitter or shoot me an email so I can shout out your blog to my fanbase via Facebook and Twitter. Thanks again for your consideration, "The Rising Trilogy Vol. 1" coming in May!

With his upcoming album Legends Never Die set to hit stores on April 30th, legendary rapper R.A. The Rugged Man is now debuting one of the most highly-anticipated tracks off the album. "Holla-Loo-Yuh" features two iconic underground figures uniting, as R.A. is joined by Tech N9ne, with fellow Strange Music emcee Krizz Kaliko on the hook. While R.A. and Tech have run in the same circles for over a decade, the all-out lyrical slaughter of "Holla-Loo-Yuh" marks their historic first-ever collaboration. Legends Never Die is the official follow-up to R.A.'s critically acclaimed album Die Rugged Man Die, and also features appearances from the likes of Hopsin, Talib Kweli, Brother Ali, Vinnie Paz, Masta Ace, Sadat X, Eamon, and more.
Audio: Kool Keith & Big Sche Eastwood - Magnetic Pimp Force Field

A few months after "Love & Danger", Kool Keith comes back, with Mr. Sche (aka Big Sche Eastwood ). These two tutelary figures of rap have joined forces to bring up a colorful album. “Magnetic Pimp Force Field” is born somewhere between New York and Memphis. Anyhow it is impossible to define this association. It smashes to bits New York as well as Southern rap. And offers a symbiosis, a fusion. Samples collide with analogical synthesizers, revisiting the heritage of Hip-Hop. Who better than Kool Keith and Mr. Sche can personify these characters bigger than life and share with us their ravings ?
