Since coming onto the scene in 2001 with a feature spot on T.I.’s I’m Serious album, rapper Big Kuntry King has continued uphill in his musical career. In between appearing on subsequent T.I. albums like Trap Muzik and Urban Legend, Big Kuntry recorded and released some songs of his own, including “Still Kuntry” and the undeniable “Throwback.” So it didn’t take long for the charismatic MC to craft the catchy tracks, “That’s Right feat. T.I.” And “Da Baddest feat. Trey Songs from his debut Album “My Turn To Eat,” which both featured Kuntry’s drawn out signature adlib, “You know who this is man, BIG KUNTRY KANE!”

This month he is going to be releasing his new single “Peach Crush” and will be out promoting his new and highly anticipated mix tape “DOPE&CHAMPAGNE” nationwide with the support of his good friend T.I. “DOPE&CHAMPAGNE” is due out November 16th. The single is being serviced on Sirius/XM shows Shade 45 and Hip Hop Nation. With close to ten years’ experience in the rap game, first as a supporting player and now as CEO of his own entertainment company, Bread Box Muzic, Big Kuntry is embarking on a journey to make a personal statement of his own.

@VH1 Premiers "Marrying The Game" on November 19th

VH1 delves into the unlikely love story of double platinum selling rapper Jayceon Taylor better known as "The Game," and his straightlaced school teacher fiancé Tiffney Cambridge as they prepare to walk down the aisle in "Marrying The Game," premiering on Monday, November 19 at 9:30PM*.

It was anything but love at first sight when Tiffney Cambridge first met Jayceon Taylor. Tiffney, the 5th grade history teacher took to Jayceon, but wanted nothing to do with his alter ego, the young rapper known as The Game. Despite her reservations, love blossomed and after eight years and two children, King Justice (5 years old) and Cali Dream (1 year old), Tiffney agreed to marry him. Life is complicated enough for Tiffney as she juggles to balance her career, family, friends, and most of all, being in love with two men: Jayceon Taylor, and the rapper The Game.

For Tiffany, Jayceon's actions leave her in a constant struggle wondering if she will have to compromise for the rest of her life with his demanding, lavish and wild career as a rapper. Each episode of "Marrying The Game" shows the difference between the most unlikely of couples and the love that ultimately brings them together and also might tear them apart. When you're marrying Game, all bets are off, because it's no easy walk down the aisle. Find out if they exchange vows on this season of "Marrying The Game."

"Marrying The Game" is created and executive produced by 51 Minds' Cris Abrego, Christian Sarabia, Rabih Gholam and Ben Samek (CAPI). For VH1, the series is executive produced by Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly and Jeff Olde.

The first, "Devastation," featured Guilty Simpson and Montage One, and more recently, Oh & Chris released the album's first official single, the up-tempo thumper "Let's Go." Today, Oh No & Chris Keys are releasing the album's latest single, and the final one before album release, with "Feet."

NEW Reef the @LostCauze Free DL!!


NEW Reef the Lost Cauze Free DL!!

Courtesy Dumhi.

About a week and a half ago, the Eagles honored Philly legend Brian Dawkins before a game. (We beat the stinkin' Giants that day too!!) If you're a football fan, you already know about Dawk. The intensity, passion, and heart he brought to every game was unmatched. If you are familiar with Reef the Lost Cauze, you already know that he brings the same attributes to the rap game.

See what I did there?

* http://music.dumhi.com/album/b-dawk-single-pack *

Reef had already loosely laid this play out prior to either of us knowing that the Eagles tribute was planned. One night in the basement, I played the beat and his eyes lit up a bit. A match was made. We recorded the vocals a week or two later and bam.... B.DAWK, the first new Reef/Dumhi collab in a minute.

Sidenote: We almost released it the day of the Eagles tribute but, that was my fault. Whatever tho... it's here NOW!

AND... as an extra special bonus, we are throwing in a song that we have been jamming with on occasion for a while, Thought Control. We performed this once or twice back at The Slingluff gallery during "The Whole Worlds Watching" party and have had a couple different plans for it. Right now I like to think of it as us having fun with some CLASSIC classic rock jams. Hope you enjoy.

****
While we are back at it again (see what I did there?)....

B.Dawk spring boarded a Reef/Dumhi Ep plan of action. We already have a couple more songs in the works. I'd tell you more about this plan but.... this is all we have so far. Actually... we also plan on it being BANGING. More news soon but.... keep late 2012/ early 2013 in the back of your mind.

*****
Catch Reef TONIGHT! Thursday October 11 at the Trocadero Balcony in Philly performing with Brasco, Rockie Reyes, Faez One, and more . He might just rock a live version of B.Dawk.

Also follow Reef on the Twitter ... @LostCauze.

MAD ANTICS!!!

Peace!!!!

Fresh off their third European Tour, the Calgary-based duo of Teekay and DJ Cosm are back, teaming with producer Def-Chap from Saskatoon for their upcoming collaborative EP, "DFE vs. DEF" (coming soon). The first single is "Lucky Day", an incredibly soulful joint where Teekay waxes philosophical on the ups and downs of searching for that special someone. Cosm's slick scratch-chorus is the cherry on top of this smooth banger.
