Im sure you have seen the hilarious viral hit 'Ship my Pants' by K-Mart that reached a peak of 28 million views on Youtube and the current viral video 'Yo Mama' that has already reached 1.2 million views in one week. K-Mart taps the Minneapolis tween hip-hop group 'Da Rich Kidzz' for the new viral hit 'My Limo' which serves as a parody to some of today's most popular rappers.

As we countdown the release of his debut album, AU: Another Universe, MidaZ The BEAST gives us an inside look at the makings of each track. In this first batch of Behind The Scenes videos, MidaZ breaks down the science of songs such as "Icing on the Cake" (where he summons his inner Jay Z), "Coma" (where he raps from the perspective of being in a coma), and "Goldberg" (the Oh No produced banger featuring Sharp and Black Gallery).
New Future is a record label from Raleigh, NC that just released a new mixtape called Organized Noize.

Mirage512 and Side Effect collectively known as "The Undergrind" are back at it AGAIN with another new visual for their song "The Nerve" (The Undergrind remix) produced by Trill Gates. This video was filmed in Atlanta, GA during the Undergrind Tour.
We have taken you to New York, “the Birth place of hip hop”, a few times for ‘Da’ What is Hip Hop? but now we are taking you to where the founders of hip hop got their ideas! Jamaica. If hip hop was born in New York, it was conceived in Jamaica. Five Steez is an emcee from Kingston trying to rep hip hop to fullest in a country where Reggae and Dancehall rule. He listened to all of the classic hip hop that put hip hop on the map, both within America and abroad, but living in Jamaica, Five Steez took to the online community far before so many of us did. This is a really interesting read about growing up a hip hop fan when those around you are not. Hip hop provided a community of sorts of Five Steez and also isolated him in a way too.
Remember rapper Mr. Malik from Illegal? Of course we do! But when asked about his sidekick, people instantly think of Jamal ("Fades 'em All"). What most don't know is that the rapper honed his skills working with a young female emcee, Carolina Dirty, who ripped through the State of South Carolina as a kid. Rumor has it that over the years Carolina Dirty rose to fame with potential deals with Left Eye (TLC) and a very close signing with Mr.Malik via Death Row Records.
Now in 2013 Carolina Dirty reenters the game with the help of the Dynamic Duo, Spectac & Amiri (HiPNOTT Records). Carolina Dirty brings a raw edge to the music with rhymes that go straight for the juggular. The EP titled New Girl In Town is just a sample of the full-length (titled STILLATIT/ Still At It) being positioned for release later this year. If this EP is any testament to what's in store, the wait will definitely be worth it! Songs like "Good Neighbor" (produced by Amiri and featuring her brother Spectac) and "22:16" (produced by TrOy) will have any head looking over the horizon for what's next to come from this phenomenal emcee. Get ready Hip Hop world... there really is a New Girl in Town!
