Building on the success of his animated video 'Get Stronger' featuring Ghetts, ShaoDow teams up with the Haberdasher's Askes' Hatcham College senior orchestra and a mad conductor in order to provide a visual representation of the raw energy that the track creates. The epitome of talent, the HAHC orchestra learned to play the entire songwithin an hour of hearing it.

Video: Hastyle feat. Rashan - "Enemies In Disguise"
Hastyle (The Barber-Artist) is back with the third single off his critically acclaimed debut album "Hair Cuts" (out now on Grey Square Records) - "Enemies In Disguise" - this time sharing mic duties with Rashan over a 70's inspired Ownmasta beat.
As crazily conceptual as ever (Has both directed and produced this video with his wife), the background to the video sees the two main characters, Smokey and Kuttie, being framed.
In 1978 they ran numbers down in the basement and spread the wealth to their community, topped off by their yearly Cadillac races in a secret location. However some member of their crew, "the enemy in disguise", snitched and they were caught.
Bad Nuze (feat. Butch Cassidy & Dra$tic Khalifa) - "Fed Up" [Prod. by Dae One]
Fed Up, the first single off of Bad Nuze's second project this year Topik of Diskushun:The Prequel features Butch Cassidy who is better known for his work with Snoop Dogg and Tha Dogg Pound, and Dra$tic Khalifa, an up and coming west coast artist who has also created a huge buzz throughout the streets of California. This project couldn’t have come at a better time when the rap game is over saturated with much of the same.
Video: Murs & Whole Wheat Bread are THE INVINCIBLES
Cali emcee Murs and Florida punk rock band Whole Wheat Bread are The Invincibles, presenting their six-song collaboration record, along with the music video for their track "I-10". Murs first met the the Jacksonville punk legends on the 2003 Warped Tour. Years later they reconnected through mutual friend Travie McCoy of Gym Class Heroes. They recorded some songs for Murs' 2008 Warner Bros. release Murs For President. Red tape kept the songs shelved, but Murs and WWB felt there was a definite vibe worth further development.
In fall 2009 they proclaimed themselves the Invincibles and began recording. This EP contains 6 songs from that period. Other songs may surface. Murs recently dropped visuals for "Epic Salutations" from his recent album Love & Rockets Vol. 1: The Transformation, produced entirely by Ski Beatz, the producer behind classic records for Jay-Z, Mos Def and more. Murs' most recent release is Yumiko: Curse Of The Merch Girl, his album and graphic novel collaboration with Josh Blaylock. He recently curated Through The Mic, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's first-ever hip-hop concert series, and this year's installment of his annual Paid Dues festival featured Wu-Tang Clan, Odd Future, Kendrick Lamar and many more.
