South Jersey's Ricky Rude and Los Angeles' Glasses Malone are quite possibly hip-hop's 'Odd Couple.' On Ricky Rude's new track, "Good Mood," which samples the theme song from the classic sitcom "The Odd Couple," the New Jersey troubadour trades bars with YMCMB's Glasses Malone, as they tell listeners everything that puts them in a good mood. The duo has released a trailer to the song's music video which is set to drop next Tuesday. Judging by the trailer, this video will be a scorcher, featuring some tremendously attratice women to accompany Ricky and Glasses' performances.

This Is Mic Crenshaw's ode to getting into the wind and just letting go. Growing up in Chicago and Minneapolis, Black Bikers were a part of the sub-cultural landscape and Mic's own family. Settling in the Pacific Northwest and becoming a rider himself, this video captures the feel of the open road in one of the most picturesque places to ride. Two wheels down; a rock jam with Hip-Hop sensibility.
Oakland, CA based emcee and Lunar Heights member Jern Eye returns with his latest single “Power” featuring Vex Davortex from the long revered Hip-Hop group Boogiemonsters (Riders of the Storm: The Underwater Album, 1994.) “Power” came as a result of Jern Eye reflecting on his path to self-empowerment, while becoming a Hip-Hop artist. Fittingly, he reached out to Vex Davortex from one of the most influential Hip-Hop groups of the 90's to help relay this message, and help clear the air about the truth and delusions of power.
