Since Declaime aka Dudley Perkins and Georgia Anne Muldrow co-founded their own label, SomeOthaShip in 2010, the duo has been releasing projects from artists including Quazedelic, Riff Raff McGriff, and others. The pair is also focused on developing a collection of their own releases, and while Georgia will release Seeds, a collaborative effort with Madlib on March 27th, Declaime has been equally busy as he continues to promote his latest album,Self-Study, released in 2011.

The latest single from Self-Study is "Ship's Doctor." Georgia Anne Muldrow produced the song, and in continuing their efforts to keep things in-house and hands-on, Dudley and Georgia directed and produced the video together. The straightforward clip features Declaime embodying his Dr. Shrooman persona, as his rhymes – a mix of slippery wordplay and spiritually-guided social commentary – unravel throughout the song, accompanied by a mix of scrolling effects that help to drive home his message.

Hip-hop has, time and again, proven to be a hotbed for breeding new and exciting genre offshoots, and Cisum Tomorrow (with Cisum – Music, spelled backwards – pronounced Kiss 'Em), is the latest to follow in that tradition. The Los Angeles, California-based duo, comprised of Supernova and Mozenraff, first met in 2009 and developed the sounds and styles of what they now call Hipno – a mashing of hip-hop and techno – shortly after. A combination, as they say, of "futuristic concepts, hard hitting beats, and lyrics that stay true to who they are as music lovers," the duo's latest single, "U Wanna," serves as a perfect introduction to the duo's sound.
