BLAZé to release Debut Mixtape “Room & Board” Hip Hop rising Star from uncharted Waters of Portland “Unfinished Business” Ft. Jové Opening for YMCMB artist TYGA April 9th 2012 “Room and Board” available ONLINE February 29th
Livewire Forever has finally announced this week the release of "Room & Board" the highly anticipated Mixtape from Hip Hop newcomer, BLAZé. While building momentum and anticipation throughout 2011 the date has finally been set for leap year. While dropping hit singles last year like "Kat Stacks" "They Know" Ft. Cassow & Jové and "Unfinished Business", this freshmen's Mixtape is sure to raise the standard and expectations of New Age Hip Hop.
"Room & Board" exemplifies the Portland-based Rapper, through creativity and the ability to create material that is unexpected from a freshman artist from the Pacific Division. BLAZé enlisted the talents of a company of diverse producers for this project, including, Jahaeel Hardy, J Not, Paul Lindsay, Dizz, Jové, PeaDi Ecks, Joe Becic, and Johnny Juliano.
Recently, Pacific Division Music vet Cool Nutz asked the question "Who are the hottest MC's in the Northwest"? Without a project out or available the Unanimous answer, the NW Guru received was none other than BLAZé. The people have high hopes for the freshman and have only witnessed a small fraction of what's to come. The continuous hunger mixed with the talent and self absorbed passion for music, BLAZé is on his way to do great things and bring a higher level of quality back to Hip Hop while using his lyrics to express a generation watered down by snaps, gimmicks, and what he likes to call Photoshopped Rappers.
BLAZé is gearing up to promote this Mixtape starting March 9th; he is accompanying Too Short at a Benefit concert at the Oregon State Fair Grounds. Following he will be opening for YMCMB artist TYGA's Careless World Tour. Live, BLAZé is known for captivating crowds and always leaving them wanting more. He is most comfortable and known for having his Live Band, an attribute that is uncommon for Hip Hop artist especially in his division.

"After his concert in Pittsburgh this Tuesday, TheDailyLoud sat down with Chris Webby and did a one on one interview with him. Chris tells us things he has not said in previous interviews such as, how he got wasted with Gorilla Zoe when they were in the studio together and the celebrity chick he wants to have "Sex'' with the most. This is overall one of the best Chris Webby interviews around, I haven't seen another interview where Chris really opens up like this, definitely something to check out."

Chi-town's L.E.P. Bogus Boys are no strangers to hard work. And so during a recent trip to NYC spent promoting their recently released Now Or Neva mixtape, Count and Moonie invited video directors Gregory Buissereth and Corey Davis to tag along and catch the guys in action as they made their rounds with media outlets including Complex, MTV, Shade45, XXL, The Source, and FADER, among others. The result is a brand new visual for their latest single, "We Want Our Money."

In just over a year and a half, Boston Bruin's Left Winger Brad Marchand has won a Stanley Cup and has become a fan favorite among Boston Hockey fans. His cult hero status as a gritty player who doesn't take himself too serious has been elevated with the embracing of his popular nickname "Noseface Killah" and his references to his teammates as "The Bru-Tang Clan."
To celebrate all things Wu-Tang and his own growing aliases, Marchand has teamed up with The Boston Sports Apparel CO. to design his own line of gear and with Boston’s own Akrobatik for a FreEP "Enter Tha 63 Chambahs" (63 coincidentally being Marchand's Jersey Number and the mirror of Wu-Tang’s debut album title). The six-songs featured on "Enter Tha 63 Chambahs" are all recorded over classic Wu-Tang instrumentals are surely the first hockey related hip-hop songs ever recorded (true "fight music"); and is a must listen for anyone (regardless if you follow hockey or not) and absolutely has to be heard in order to be appreciated.
