Video: Malkovich f/ DiBia$e - "WTF"

“I was a fan of Malkovich the first time I heard him,” says world-famous DJ, musical collaborator with the late, great J Dilla and Detroit rap ambassador House Shoes. “This is the first of many collaborations we will be doing. Yall know I do NOT F**K AROUND with my cosigns. After listening you will understand why he is getting the green light.” King Tech of the World Famous Wake Up Show says “Malkovich is a super duper greasy middle easty emcee. His ego/attitude to rip the mic comes through every time he comes on our show.  He loves this culture with a passion unlike most and has a make it or bust attitude with no quitting in sight.” On Ayatollah Presley he raps about his Hurricane Katrina experience, Iran’s Green Revolution and even dedicates a song to the late Guru of Gang Starr over a mix of original beats as well as jacks from Kanye, the Neptunes, Mystikal and the Beatnuts.

PR: Sole Taps Lil B the Based God for New Album


From Terrorbird Media:

Sole Taps Lil B the Based God for New Album

On Hello Cruel World, Sole aka Tim Holland returns with the Skyrider Band for his first full length since the split with Anticon, and his third album with the Skyrider Band. While much was made of Sole leaving the Anticon empire he helped create, there's a refreshing, new found confidence and focus not seen since his now-classic albums Selling Live Water and Bottle of Humans. On Hello Cruel World sees Sole has assembled an army of the most exciting voices in indie culture to be apart of the new record, recruiting everyone from Lil B THEBASEDGOD, Xiu Xiu, Pictureplane, Sage Francis, Ceschi, and more, to create a pretty stunning tapestry that is a new high water mark in Sole's creative output. The first single, "Hello Cruel World," is now streaming on Sole's Soundcloud page. The album drops July 19th on cd, vinyl, and digital via Fake Four Inc., with the European release being handled by Equinox Records.

Perhaps even more interesting, listeners will notice that Sole has adopted the most deliberate flow of his career--abandoning the freewheeling, hyper-timed assaults of his earlier work in favor of a biting clarity and all around accessibility. The record draws on the wealth of his newly found freedom, tapping into the positivity and ethics of a DIY tradition he has always known and embraced throughout his career - transforming his past cynicism into a call to arms and personal empowerment. The Skyrider Band itself has been similarly transformed; trading in their dense soundscapes and organic touchstones for an impeccable attention to detail and more studio-centric productions.

On Sole and the Skyrider Band's last record, Plastique, Sole claimed, “I've been digging my grave since age 15.” Since then, he's been hard at work converting his grave into trenches that span from California to Barcelona, and the bottom of the ocean to the moon. Hello Cruel World occupies these trenches, steadfastly refusing to be flushed into a niche.
