Earlier this month, MHz Legacy announced an October 30th release date for their forthcoming self-titled album. On the album, rapper's Copywrite, Tage Future, and Jakki Da Motamouth, along with in-house producer RJD2, will finally deliver the long-awaited official group album that fans have been waiting for since MHz first hit the scene in the late-'90s. Influential member Camu Tao, who passed in 2008 away following a battle with lung cancer, will also maintain a heavy presence on the album, with a number of never-before-heard verses appearing on a number of songs.
Mello Music Group is ecstatic to announce Dice Game, a 16 track collaborative album between Detroit’s Guilty Simpson & Apollo Brown. The former’s work with Madlib and Dilla already establish him as one of the current greats on the mic and the latter’s heralded music with OC and his own group, The Left, hint towards a similar path in his own canon. The Motor City titans join forces to create an unabashedly hardcore record, without catering to the club or radio.
The full-length album is rife with aggressive content that does not sacrifice quality and musicality. This is music for OG’s, for heads who hunger for that quality street music before the genre by-and-large made a caricature of itself. Though the block may be getting icy by release November 13th, stay on the corner with a few veterans and shoot a Dice Game.

Kingston, Jamaica resident Nomad Carlos presents the Board-directed music video for his Natural High Muzik-produced new single "As Real As It Gets". Born in Miami and raised in Kingston from the age of 5, Carlos has dropped several albums and performed relentlessly in Jamaica, proudly flying the flag for hip-hop in a country dominated by dancehall and reggae.
“This is an ongoing struggle I go through in my own country," he says. "Gatekeepers to the music industry turn a blind eye to the local Hip Hop community. But I think I have the ability to give a new outlook within the content of Hip Hop music, as I have lived a different life in Jamaica.” Early this year, Nomad released Live From Yard, hosted by DJ Ill Will & DJ Rockstar. Carlos' next mixtape, Me Against The Grain, is set for a fall release.
