In this season's finale of Obese TV, we chat to M-Phazes about his new album The Works, and find out more about Artist Manager, DJ, and all round business man Nate Flagrant.

Fluey shows us around the Obese Records Frankston retail store, and Frank word's us up on the newest releases from our distro and label roster.
DJ YRS Jerzy and Chox-Mak will definitely go down in hip-hop history one day. These two have been on a roll with their constant releasing of records.

Now with their new track "Twitterpated" which is a club banger produced by Tevflonn.
Video: Mr. Green "Live from the Streets" Greece Episode
"This episode is special because it's our first official international project. The ultimate goal is to take this little web series that started in my bedroom to every corner of the globe and this is a step in the right direction.
Here's how it went down:
When I was in Greece touring with Psycho Realm, the promotion company, "rapstage.gr" hooked my crew up with an old video camera to collect footage.
The first leg of the trip was in Thessaloniki, where we filmed a dope street musician playing traditional Greek music. A few blocks from the street musician we bumped into protesters who had gathered together to speak out against the dangerous conditions in the local gold mines. We also met a couple dudes who were hanging out at a local cafe, they were mad cool and let us film them play some music.
That night, I did a show and we filmed the crowd saying "LIVE." The next day, we headed to Athens and met a cool ass gypsy kid who played us some accordion and traded hats with me. Then we met up with MC Yinka and recorded him spitting verses in both English and Greek. Finally, I hung out with the Buns Graffiti crew and got some footage of them getting busy.
Look out for more "Live from the Streets: Abroad" episodes in the future.
Today, The FADER is premiering the newest mixtape from San Francisco rapper Roach Gigz, titled Roachy Balboa III. The mixtape has a lot to live up to as the third installment of the Roachy Balboa mixtape series, as the first two tapes were largely popular and received well by the FADER and Pitchfork. The immense amount of preparation from Roach for the mixtape (he put out four videos from RBIII before it's release) built up a huge anticipation for it throughout the hip-hop community.
Bay area rapper Blanco is on a roll. Last month he released a collaborative mixtape Raw with Nipsey Hussle, a project that was produced entirely by Cookin Soul. The tape has earned strong reviews, and already Blanco is back on the move with a new project, Game Over, another collaborative effort with fellow Bay rapper The Jacka and producer Bedrock. Today, he's releasing "Punch Out," the latest single from from that Game Over project.

Most stories about the american dream either begins at the bottom with the world watching your rise to the top or we witness the unfortunate fall from grace. Whether it's movies or music, the grey area, the backbone of our very nation is taken for granted. The Middle class is the engine that keeps America running in a time where wealth and high fashion is glorified.
