New Audio: Oh No f/ Sticky Fingaz - "Whoop Ass"

From Matt B:

New Audio: Oh No f/ Sticky Fingaz - "Whoop Ass"

Following two successful collaborative efforts alongside fellow producer/rapper The Alchemist as the power duo Gangrene -2010’s Gutter Water and 2012’s Vodka & Ayahuasca- and the 2011 gem with The Alchemist as Gangrene & Roc Marciano, the Greneberg EP; The Oxnard, California based beat-smith and emcee Oh No returns for a solo mission.

Oh No (born Michael Jackson; younger brother of Madlib and son of singer Otis Jackson) was granted unprecedented access to the Rudy Ray Moore / Dolemite audio archives and given free rein to slice, dice, chop and sample his way through the classic-yet-absolutely-filthy catalog. He was able to use legendary material from The Human Tornado, Petey Wheatstraw, the Dolemite Soundtrack and more, plus a multitude of previously unreleased and alternate acapellas and instrumentals. The end result is Ohnomite (available on 6-5-2012), a 19 track head-banging extravaganza of sloppy funk, dirty soul, and brainy lyricism, all aimed at one thing- making your head nod and your ass shake. And when you add to that guests spots from the likes of MF Doom, Evidence, Phife Dawg, The Alchemist, Erick Sermon, Rapper Pooh, MED, Guilty Simpson, Roc Marciano, Sticky Fingaz, Chino XL, Roc C, Prozack Turner, Termanology, Frank Nitt and more, and you are left with a one of a kind album from a one of a kind musician. Ohnomite- 19 songs of pure whoop ass from Oh No and Dolemite!

Speaking of “Whoop Ass,” here is the first leak from Oh No’s Ohnomite LP f/Sticky Fingaz: .

From RB:

Video: royceBIRTH - "When the Music Stops"

"I wonder if they hear what I say, and if it will play 30 years from today..."

These are the opening words that kick down the doors in this powerful video - "When the Music Stops".  Fueled by a jazzy breakbeat, royceBIRTH speaks on the importance of music and its timelessness, complemented by a backdrop that defines simplicity in its purest form.

This groundbreaking song travels across genres, cultures and time, reminding us that music is a universal language that influences everyone from all walks of life.

This song appears on the album, The REBIRTH Album, and Urbnet: Certified Vol.1, available now.

MP3: OC & Apollo Brown - "Just Walk"

From Mello Music Group:

MP3: OC & Apollo Brown - "Just Walk"

The Golden Era meets the Now with the release of Apollo Brown and OC’s collaborative album Trophies on Mello Music Group. Apollo Brown has spent the last few years gaining respect and accolades for his production and OC is a revered veteran from the legendary DITC.

Trophies is a testament to the permanence of gritty, raw, boom-bap Hip-Hop. 16 tracks, no guests, no filler. The album has been highly anticipated by real heads world wide, so much so the album debuted at #8 on the US iTunes Hip-Hop charts. Some retailers were even shipping the physical copies early to eager fans but today is the official release date of Trophies everywhere—CD, vinyl and digital. 
In celebration of the occasion, enjoy a free download of “Just Walk.” The powerful track finds Apollo Brown flipping a legendary sample into a triumphant composition with potent horn stabs. OC matches the majesty of Apollo’s beat by waxing poetically about his “alpha male ego” and comparing his street respect to that of Nuyorican poet Miguel Piñero. Calm and mature yet still rugged and live, “Just Walk” is exemplary of the kind of substance you can expect from Trophies. Enjoy the sounds, tell a friend and remember, Trophies in stores now!!!

@LegaC Releases "Get Along" To Protest Tulsa, OK Hate Crimes

From Bayer Mack:

Lega-C Releases "Get Along" To Protest Tulsa, OK Hate Crimes

Block Starz Music recording artist Lega-C, who is known for her YouTube clips "White Girl Raps Fast" and "Hate On Me", has released a new song called "Get Along" to protest the racially-charged violence that left three black people dead and two injured in her hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma on April 6, 2012.

Jake England, 19, who is a Cherokee Indian, and Alvin Watts, 33, who is white, are each being held at the Tulsa Jail on three counts of first-degree murder and two counts of shooting with intent to kill. England and Watts were arrested about 48 hours after police began discovering multiple gunshot victims in the historically-black North Side of Tulsa.  

"Get Along", produced by The Deeksta, is a collaboration between Lega-C (born Danielle McLean) and local African-American rapper and youth activist Playya 1000 (born Fred Frierson), who, in addition to coaching inner-city youth basketball, goes into area schools and uses Hip-Hip to motivate at-risk students.

"My hope is that the rest of the country doesn't think that what happened is normal or to be expected in Oklahoma," says Frierson of the shootings, which have attracted media from across the country, including correspondents for the New York Times, CBS, NBC’s "Today" show and CNN.

Playya 1000 and Lega-C, who will release her Block Starz Music debut album, "Off My Medication", this Fall, are planning to shoot an official music video to "Get Along" in coming weeks.
