Video: 4th Pyramid - "Feel It In My Bones" (prod. Marco Polo)

Earlier this spring, 4th Pyramid released The Pyramid Scheme, his first album since signing his label, Silk Ivory, to a join venture with Universal Music. The album has earned the Toronto rapper/producer accolades from the likes of XXL, RESPECT, the Village Voice, Toronto's NOW Magazine, and more, and since then, Pyramid has stayed busy on the road, touring with Talib Kweli earlier this month, and now prepping for a July run of dates opening for underground legend Elzhi.

Today, Pyramid is excited to release the latest visual from The Pyramid Scheme,"Feel It In My Bones." "This song is based on a true story of me breaking my hip in a nasty little accident," explains Pyramid, who opens the track by rapping, "I'm so hip-hop/ My hip popped/ Shattered into pieces when I hit it on the block." The accident is a few years old, says Pyramid, and for a while it had just been a matter of finding the right instrumental. "When Marco Polo send me the beat," he recalls, "I pretty much knew right away that it was perfect for my story."

The video, directed by Johnny Nghiem, who also directed Pyramid's recent video for "Can't Stop," plays, humorously, on the song's topic, placing Pyramid in the hospital, surrounded by doctor and nurse, as he raps, "Trying to act fly in a hospital gown," jokes Pyramid, "was definitely the most challenging part of the video."

PR: @Kid_Ink Sells Nearly 20,000 Albums First Week

From Papa Smirf:

Kid Ink Sells Nearly 20,000 Albums First Week

Los Angeles – Nielsen Soundscan reports for the week of 6/17 that Kid Ink, an independent artist signed to Tha Alumni Music Group, has sold nearly 20,000 (19,766) copies of his debut album "Up & Away" in its first week in stores.  Primarily all digital, the album sales give Kid ink a Top 20 national debut on the Soundscan sales charts.  Additionally, the album was the second highest Rap selling act for the week, third highest R&B act and the fourth highest digital selling album for the week (all genres).  The album was powered by the lead radio single "Time of Your Life" and the buzz track from the album, "Drippin'" which sold an additional 22,291 singles in its first week of release.  Kid Ink still holds the top spot on the iTunes US Hip Hop album chart and additionally was #1 on iTunes in 6 other countries throughout the week (Canada, Germany,France, Norway and Luxembourg) to go with Top 10 appearances in over ten other countries.

"Up & Away" is the first official studio release from Kid Ink and Tha Alumni Music Group represented by DJ Ill Will.  The album, a year in the making, represents a pinnacle for Kid Ink after releasing several highly publicized mixtapes online and being featured this year in the XXL Magazine Top 10 Freshman Issue.  Ink, a 25 year old Los Angeles born and raised artist began as a producer and segued to a career as an MC with the backing of prominent Mixtape DJ, Ill Will.  Ill Will, in talking about the success Tha Alumni Music Group and Kid Ink has had in a short period said "In this day in age it’s all about show and prove.  We wanted to stand on our own first and foremost and show the power of Kid Ink’s fan base and Tha Alumni Music Group’s Brand.  Ink has had a very rabid fan base for quite some time so we were confident with the right material we would do these kinds of numbers or better. I’m excited to see where this album will take us, I think quality wise there aren’t many Indy Hip-Hop projects that can stand up to this level of music so I think it’s just the beginning for “Up & Away.”

The successful release of "Up & Away" is just another step in the busy schedule of Kid Ink.  After touring all summer, he will be performing this weekend on the main stage at Power 106-Los Angeles' annual Power House before hitting the road for another twenty US dates.  The summer concludes with a thirty plus cityEuropean tour that kicks off in August and runs through the fall with stops in Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France, the UK, Norway, Denmark and more. 

"Up & Away" is in stores worldwide and can be found on iTunes here: .
