A gritty 90's style album for those who grew up on Illmatic, Midnight Marauders, Only Built for Cuban Links, Moment of Truth, and Ready to Die. Behind The Scale shows the other side of what some are glamorizing about street life and drug trade. This is unfiltered, real sh*t on tape. Some of the stories are intensly personal and Sean second-guessed including them, but if it ain't raw it ain't real. Behind The Scale is about change, transition and growing up.
Uptown XO - New song Featured in Under Armour Commercial!

Uptown XO continues to prepare for the release of his debut MMG solo album "Colour de Grey" this coming January 29th. The folks at Under Armour got a hold of the album and were so impressed they picked up the new song "Salaam" to feature in their commercial with professional freeskier Ahmet Dadali. Check out the new commercial and get ready for the world premier of XO's new single next week on MTVHive!
Black Moon's "Enta Da Stage" is one of my favorite hip hop albums of all time. I've lost that album and bought it again more times than I can even remember. When approaching a classic joint like this I try and bring something different to the table and attack the beat in a different way otherwise it's a huge disservice to the artist and song. I was able to share this with the people from Duck Down a little while back when I first recorded this, and they seemed to appreciate the effort. So, now I share this with the world.
B-Boyz (Kid Boombox & BrandNew) of the Stereo Crew release the second video off their Mixtape "Stereo Boyz presents B-Boyz". The B-Boyz Mixtape is their first release and serves as an introduction of their sound, similar yet different from the one Stereo Boyz fans are used to.
