G-DO & Xception have released their fourth full-length album The Otherside on Goal! Records. This album is the official follow up to their critically acclaimed 2011 album Sankofa. The Otherside features Namibian soul star and Goal Music Group fam, Shishani, Curro Noriega, Moda, and the album was mixed by Mark Nieuwenhuis.
The Otherside represents the dark side, a hidden part of the psyche. It also represents the other side of G-DO & Xception. Mainly known for their jazzy, soulful songs, this album marks a clear break from their previous work. Musically, it is reminiscent of a raw, low-fi, psychedelic, 70s B-movie. It also marks the first G-Do & Xception album mostly constructed of live instruments versus samples. Over this backdrop, Xception describes, in vivid detail, tales of struggle and triumph throughout everyday life, which always has a dark side.
Hip Hop has always had an intimate bond with Virginia, with legends like Pharrell, Timbaland, Missy, and The Clipse, formulating their own unique sound with its VA trademark. Richmond native Michael Millions is continuing in that Old Dominion tradition with his latest effort, Slangin' Tapes, from his forthcoming release "Ghost Of $20 Bills".

Funk Volume emcee Dizzy Wright is gearing up to release a new mixtape, entitled The Golden Age. The project will be released exclusively through HotNewHipHop on August 19th. Dizzy is also unveiling the mixtape's glistening artwork, created by legendary designer and artist SKAM2?.
The artist/designer chose to showcase Dizzy's connection to a bygone era as a son-mother relationship, inexorably connected. He explains how the visual came together: "I came at it from the angle of the mother being the era herself, nurturing and shaping Dizzy with the music. If you notice, the umbilical cord is coming out of the headphones. We wanted to incorporate things that would visually represent that era so I chose cassettes, vinyl and a turntable arm. The buds of course were Dizzy's idea. I wanted the type to be retro and clean and the writing on the cassette to have an organic and aged contrast." It was obvious to SKAM2? to emphasize the golden sheen: "As soon as I heard the title, It just seemed like a given that everything should be gold. Sometimes obvious is good."
"Real MC2" is the single from Ancient Jewlz upcoming album entitled Ancient Jewlz being released 4th quarter of 2013. Sense and Reefa Rei are lions amongst human beings, resurrecting the golden era of lyricism. "Real MC" strikes a fatal blow to any and all responsible for incarcerating the minds of the youth. The song itself is the embodiment of a Real MC.
