Alterbeats continues the album campaign for their debut producer compilation The French Revolution with the visuals for the album cut "True Rhyme," featuring Divine of Brooklyn's Walt Whitman Houses, which was once home to Just-Ice and Ol' Dirty Bastard. A dedicated student of the craft and inspired largely by The God Emcee Rakim, Divine takes you on a tour of his world; from his project stairwells and rooftops, to the lab and to his house of worship and back. "This is true rhyme, true crime, true divine/ Get paid for my displays, what I move through the mind/ My days shine, bless a pen with a smooth rhyme/ You get lost in my thoughts, but get it in due time." The French Revolution is now available!
Neopolitan is much like the ice cream it is named after. It’s a mixture of Reggae, Electro, Disco, Soul, Hip-Hop, Rock, Dubstep, and R&B, flavors all blended into one creamy collection. When Dorsh Deans sat down to conceptualize the Neopolitan album, Dorsh realized with his given “Jaminglican” (Jamaican, English, and American) heritage, that he was in a unique position to represent a significantly large group of people authentically. Having spent his entire life as a soccer player in the U.S. and abroad, he wanted the album to mirror the workings of the World Cup, and its function to bring people together from all parts of the globe. Soccer exposed Dorsh to many cultures and he felt it was only appropriate that he share my experiences through another universal language, music.
Dorsh made Neopolitan to show people that it is ok to be yourself, to celebrate differences, and to embrace more than ONE kind of music! People learn the best through music, and Neopolitan presents a new way to grasp the concept of a “diverse” album and artist.
In the past year, Dorsh has been featured on several top music blogs and radio shows domestically and Internationally. On February 24, 2012 his debut single "Je t'aime", from the Neopolitan LP, premiered at #10 on Hypem's popular music charts. Amidst performing with a wide range of artists from LTJ Bukem & MC Conrad to Talib Kweli, Dorsh has done remix work for FADERLABEL in NYC, engineered for Ska Rebirth in Kingston, and mastered for Asahi Brewery in Tokyo. Successfully earning his stripes in the as an engineer/producer, Dorsh is now ready to transition from behind the board to behind the mic with his debut LP Neopolitan for Rad Summer!

On July 17th, Pittsburgh, California, rapper A-Wax will release his new album, Everybody Loves Me: Chapter 1. The project, which includes features from French Montana, Styles P., Mistah FAB, and more, and as release date approaches, Wax is excited to release the album's lates visual, for the track "Yeah Right."
"'Yeah Right' came about from riding with YG Hootie and Brick Squad Monopoly, and seeing how far some people go to be down with them," explains A-Wax, who's no stranger to the hanger-ons himself, having spent time around plenty of them as a part of Akon's Konvict Muzik. "One of them even started a 'Brick Squad Mafia,' and a lot of people don't even know that it's not real," he adds, laughing as he litters humorous lines throughout the song to drive home his point. "Don't know her name, letting me rub on her booty," he raps. "Fronting like she ain't only come to meet Hootie."
Wax wrote the song while hanging out with Brick Squad during Drake's recent Club Paradise Tour, and so, it was only natural for the visual to reflect that time, put together using a collection of in-studio footage and behind-the-scenes shots from his time on the tour that includes cameos from Waka Flocka, French Montana, Whoo Da Kid, Ty Dolla $ign, YG Hootie, and more.
