Critically acclaimed new artist Has-Lo is back with a re-envisioning of his debut In Case I Don't Make It. The noteworthy project comes out officially on November 15th, but iTunes has teamed up with MMG for an exclusive early release of the star-studded Conversation B. To encourage everyone to support the album, we're giving away a free download of Has-Lo "Face In Diguise" produced by none other than Exile.

"Face In Disguise" is Build Jewelz reconstituted by Has-Lo and Exile. The producer has crafted music for Mobb Deep, Akon and Snoop Dogg, not to mention his classic long player with Blu: Below The Heavens. Exile lends this track an intense musical backdrop full strings and monastic chanting that brings out a religious tone that matches Has-Lo's lyrical prose. Hope and faith are pitted against an unyielding external reality that Has-Lo depicts with the wordplay of a virtuoso.

"My grandmother says "you need to put your faith into Christ"
And yet, waning in faith, I hate her advice
An atheist right? To pray in the sky, a face in disguise
Well beyond saying I'm blessed to say I'm alive
Awaiting a sign from god, meanwhile failing to rise
And what's the point really? I spend the week
Plotting a scheme to get filthy, or let the stress kill me
If I'm cutting you off the love that I had was built cheap
You holding a grudge? Feel free"

About The Album:

Has-Lo, the Philadelphia based emcee/producer who brought you the critically acclaimed album In Case I Don't Make It, is back! Conversation B is a complete re-envisioning of ICIDMI. Exile, J-Zone, Oddisee, Kev Brown, Eric Lau, Apollo Brown and more lend their extensive production powers to the project. It is eclectic, melodic, chaotic, bleak and brutal all at once. The journey of a man at the tipping point continues...

Heavy D R.I.P. - Dead at the Age of 44

The first source for this news item is Grandmaster Flash on Twitter and the second is We've quoted from the latter below.

"Rap legend Heavy D -- one of the most influential rappers of the '90s -- died earlier today ... TMZ has learned.

Heavy D -- real name Dwight Arrington Myers -- was rushed to an L.A. hospital around noon today ... and was pronounced dead at the hospital at 1 PM. He was 44 years old.

We've learned a 911 call was placed from Heavy's Beverly Hills home around 11:25 AM to report an unconscious male on the walkway .

When help arrived, we're told Heavy D was conscious and speaking -- and was transported to a nearby hospital.

He died a short time later.

Cops are investigating the death -- and so far, there are no obvious signs of foul play.

Heavy D had several massive hits -- including "Now That We Found Love." He also wrote and performed the theme song for "In Living Color" ... and appeared as an actor in the movie "Life."

Heavy just performed at the Michael Jackson Tribute Concert in Wales on October 8. He sang "Jam" with La Toya Jackson -- and rocked it."
