Sharks in the Sky contains pure hip-hop head-nodders like “Dream Lab” and “The Living Dead”, quirky but hard hitting 8-bit-sounding beats like “Echelon” and “So Filthy”, and smooth joints like “Just”.

Follow Case Arnold around the streets of his home town, Clarksville, TN, for his newest visuals to his track "Profound Sound." Case begins winding up the videos for his most recent project "The Myndstate" with one of his most unique visuals yet. This track was produced by none other than 9th Wonder, and the video was again done by Devo Films.
Philadelphia hip-hop artist and producer Theodore Grams drops a visual to track three off of his recent project Dogwhistle 2. This has to be his best visual to date, and definitely deserves to be all over the internet.
Blockhead was more than game for the opportunity to work with A.B., having known A.B. since he himself was 18 years old. And with Roc Maricano recently named as VP & Director of A&R for the label, it seemed like the perfect time to release a record that demonstrated the impressive wealth of talent Man Bites Dog Records has assembled. With a new beat tailored specifically for the remix track, Blockhead went for "more of a head nod, driving force" type sound, leading to a "break that was airy and little self reflective." Coupled with spirited lyrical deliveries from Double A.B. and Roc Marciano, the track is a perfect example of the label's continued evolution and growing dominance.
