Official Video for "Dreamin'" from NY's break through star AWAR has him lucid dreaming of winning Grammys while singer Antonio Mclendon croons the mantra, "Work All Day, Hustle All Night" with M-Phazes star power production. This single has all the chemistry of a radio hit and the dream state imagery of the video captures the big city lights and dreams mentality.

Welcome to another increasingly infrequent e-mail blast. I wanted to drop off my brand new soul tape before I left for tour. Oh, and tell you about tour.

Fresh off the unreal experience that was the Into the Wild Tour, tomorrow I leave for Victoria, British Columbia to play the Rifflandia festival with Killer Mike, before we start the 64 Squares tour with The GZA on Saturday in Toronto. We'll be on the road for about five weeks, ending 10/20 in Philadelpha. I'll be DJing for both Mike AND the GZA, so it will be an amazing time. (And super exhausting.) It's been a good summer for this rap fan. If we'll be in your area, come on out...click here for dates & cities. http://djtrackstar.com/schedule/ .

Still Dreamin 8: (cover art by Tech Supreme) http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2012/09/download-trackstar-the-dj-still-dreamin-8 .

One can’t listen to Hip-Hop all the time. No matter how big a rap fan you are, you need a break here and there to balance the intensity and aggression Hip-Hop provides. As a break from the beats and rhymes, I present to you Still Dreamin 8, which continues the vibe set by volume 7 and features smooth feel-good tunes old and new from folks like Dam-Funk, HouseShoes, Electric Wire Hustle, BJ The Chicago Kid and more. If you check this smooth shit out and still end up ready to scrap, you were a lost cause to begin with.

Thanks for your support, and for taking a minute to read this. Nothing is more precious than time, I appreciate yours.

peace

PR: Jay-Z Brings Out the Best in Up and Coming Maryland Rapper


PR: Jay-Z Brings Out the Best in Up and Coming Maryland Rapper

Courtesy Build a Buzz.

It takes confidence to use classic Jay-Z instrumentals as the backdrop to your first mixtape but that's just what Maryland-based rapper Verbiage has had the guts to do. My Life in Syntax is just as much a tribute to the iconic rapper as it is an introduction to Verbiage’s introspective journey through life’s ups and downs. Consisting of only 7 songs, Verbiage chose some of Sean Carter’s most melodic tracks to bring listeners into his world.

The 22 year old artist’s lyrics are no fabrication.  Losing his mother to cancer at 16 followed by a string of family hardships has molded Verbiage into the artist he is today. A classically trained pianist since elementary school, Verbiage came into his own as a producer first.  As a teen, making beats came just as easy as writing rhymes. Shortly after graduating from high school, Verbiage got what seemed like his big break producing for the likes of J Hood, Young Buck, Rich Boy, Ray Cash, 2 Pistols and Yukmouth. Unfortunately, after a dry spell and bills piling up, Verbiage was obligated to get a full time job spending his remaining free time working on his first self produced album. However, realizing that listeners may not be interested in yet another album from an unknown producer/rapper, Verbiage decided to use familiar Jay-Z instrumentals to compliment his heart felt lyrics. My Life in Syntax was born.

Written in just 7 days, My Life in Syntax was titled after his uncanny ability to cleverly flip words and punch lines about his personal struggles. Engineered by his partner Anom the Phenom, the project is dedicated to his mom. With artists like Kendrick Lamar, Big K.R.I.T., Kanye West, Nas, and J. Cole inspiring Verbiage to be lyrical without sacrificing substance, he's confident that listeners will connect with his message and passionate delivery.  “People are always looking for an artist with a fresh take on things,” says verbiage. “I feel like there's a greater cause here so this is the perfect medium for people to see what I'm trying to do.”  His mom would be proud. 

My Life in Syntax is currently available at www.TheVerbiage.bandcamp.com. To learn more, visit the website at www.TheVerbiage.com. Connect with Verbiage on Twitter at @TheVerbiage or @B3Music.
