Raekwon's protege, Ceazar returns with a new banger today featuring a guest verse from Fred Da Godson titled "Showtime." A lot of Shaolin flavor in this, keeping in mind the lyrical exercise on an upbeat production. He's been prepping the finishing touches on his forthcoming Render The Throne mixtape due out in August, with several new music videos underway.

Toronto emcee THEO3 is excited to announce the release of his forthcoming #Enticement FreEP this July as a thank you to the fans and supporters around the globe. The first leak from THEO3’ #Enticement, “Clouds,” saw him rocking over a hypnotic head-nodder from Audible Doctor, today THEO3 connects with Psycho Les as Theo3 mixes punchlines with politics and non-stop energy, while The Beatnuts legend provides a bass heavy assault, with turntable wizard DJ Grouch getting busy on the decks.
Song Description: Chox-Mak has been shocking everyone with his versatile flow he switches up from 90's hip hop flow to trap and even makes club bangers. He usually drops tracks with DJ YRS Jerzy but decided to switch it up and drop a single with Scotland's own Bunty Beats. Chox-Mak and Bunty Beats bring you "Takeover" which is a feel good track with a great meaning to it. Chox-Mak will be dropping more projects with Bunty Beats in the future so just stay tuned for what the future has in store for them.
HIP HOP ARTISTS EXPOSE HUMAN TRAFFICKING IN NEW YORK CITY
'King Kulture: Stop The Traffic' - The All-Star Compilation Album Helps NYC Organization
ip Hop is exposing human trafficking in New York City and assisting the New York Urban City Project to continue their ongoing fight. Premier Hip Hop music web site Rapzilla.com in conjunction with Syntax Distribution, New York City Urban Project, and InterVarsity, is releasing a compilation album entitled 'King Kulture: Stop The Traffic' on August 27th, 2013. Proceeds from the album are donated to New York City Urban Project, a non-profit organization based in and serving New York City.
King Kulture: Stop The Traffic is a project full of artists that are passionate about raising awareness and fighting human trafficking. The title track was done by Washington Heights resident, Andy Mineo who's album 'Heroes For Sale' is one of the highest selling independent Hip Hop albums of the year with over 30,000 sold in the first week alone. The Reach Records artist and label mate to the Grammy Award nominated artist Lecrae, connected Rapzilla with the New York City Urban Project and assisted in making their vision a reality. The project features MC Jin, another New York City resident and a rapper that is known for winning BET's Freestyle Friday a record breaking 7 consecutive times, landing him in their Hall of Fame. MC Jin went on to sign with Ruff Ryders alongside DMX and Eve at the label's peak. MC Jin changed things up and moved to Hong Kong where he reached celebrity status as a model, actor and rapper, before relocating back to the U.S. recently. The compilation features several Grammy, Dove and Stellar Award nominated artists and producers such as Flame, Sho Baraka, Wit, Canton Jones, and Propaganda.
Child Trafficking is the recruitment, smuggling, transporting, harboring, buying or selling of a child through force, threats, fraud, deception, or coercion for the purposes of exploitation, prostitution, pornography, migrant work, sweatshops, domestic servitude, forced labor, bondage, peonage or involuntary servitude. Child trafficking is one of the fastest growing crimes in the world. UNICEF values the global market of child trafficking at over $12 billion a year with over 2 million child victims. Men, women and children are all victims but, the most vulnerable groups, those with limited rights or protections, have been the hardest hit… especially children.
Joe Mazzilli, Executive Director of A&E's Runaway Squad served 15 years with the NYPD, nine of those years with the Organized Crime Control Bureau, where he infiltrated the mob. During his years of deep undercover, Mazzilli’s work led to major mob arrests for murder, drug trafficking, hijacking, and human trafficking. In an exclusive interview with Rapzilla.com Mazzilli stated, "1.6 million kids run away a year. 50 percent of them get exploited and many of them die."
"It's hard to get video of anyone actually being trafficked because obviously it's not done in the open, but obviously if you see a 24 hour massage parlor - people aren't getting back massages at 3 o'clock in the morning." says Rapzilla co-owner and editor-in-chief, Chad Horton during his recent trip to New York.
The idea for King Kulture came about when Rapzilla.com founder Philip Rood and his team were looking for ways to expand the web site’s charitable impact. “We wanted to give proceeds from a project to a charity in Africa,” Rood says. He adds, “We partnered with several artists and producers that donated their talents and time to make it happen. From the sales of the first King Kulture project, 'Rapzilla.com Presents... King Kulture', we donated $10,000 to the school Ecole de la Borne in Kinshasa, Congo.”
'King Kulture: Stop The Traffic' is available for pre-order on iTunes. Physical copies and deluxe packages are available for pre-order on Rapzilla's Official Store at Rapzilla.com.

An artist for Hip Hop purists, Arise King David has served the UK Hip Hop scene for over a decade with versatile flows, conscious content and some of the hardest beats out there. Born in London to Ghanaian parents, Arise King David has been steadily building his repertoire over the years, known as an Executive Producer at the former Hip Hop label Strictly Bizzness. Under the names Flawless and then Darknight, his MC'ing talents have seen him share stages with Akon, The Game and more as well being championed by DJ 279 on Choice FM and Tim Westwood on his BBC Radio 1 show.
Following a hiatus in 2006 to focus on gaining a qualification in sound engineering and music tech, King David went on to co-found DM Sound Design Ltd a company specialising in audio post production, music composition and sound design for TV, film, radio and computer games. During this period King David worked on a number of projects including the Cannes Film Festival 'Short Film Corner' award nominated film 'I DO' and most recently 'ZION' a film by Sheila Nortley winner of the 'Best Film' and 'Best Screenplay' awards at the Spartan Lense Film Festival, Norfolk Virginia.
Now Arise King David drops his debut solo project, 'Free Music' a future UK classic that took a year and a half to craft and nurture it. This project stays true to Hip-Hop music and expresses itself freely without trying to fit into the mass market image of what Hip-Hop music is. This self produced project features gust beats from the acclaimed Kosyne of Eatgood Records, DJ Slademan and Chairman Maf. Cuts come from DJ SRG (Poland's finest!) and DJ279, plus guest artist appearances from Skriblah Dan Gogh (Terra Firma), Imam Thug, Phoenix Da Icefire (Triple Darkness) and Tommy Bunnz to name but a few. This is one to satisfy the appetite of Hip Hop lovers, not just in the UK but worldwide.
