DTR deal with BLUEPRINT + The Bend But Don't Break Tour Dates
Courtesy Tony @ DTR45.
We here at DTR are thrilled to announce the newest addition to our talent roster -- the immensely talented, hard working and perennial road warrior, Blueprint. The Columbus-based entrepreneur-artist recently joined the booking ranks here at Deep Thinka, and after a of decade of working together in a smaller capacity, we couldn't be happier to have him fully on board.
To that extent, we're announcing dates on the Bend But Don't Break Tour, featuring Blueprint and his Weightless Record comrade, Illogic. Together, the dynamic duo go by the name Greenhouse. After after an almost 2 year long hiatus, Greenhouse is back at it; wasting no time and refining each line on their new album, Bend But Don't Break (due out July 9) and of course taking it all out on the road for a national run of dates. Scheduled to begin mid-July and run straight through August, the Bend But Don't Break tour will have Greenhouse "rockin' mics and lovin' life" in the east, west, north, south and everywhere else in-between.
Blueprint & Illogic will be hitting the road for their first national headlining tour as Greenhouse, in support of their upcoming album Bend But Dont Break. The tour dates will run from July 12th through August 31st. Please note: the below list is just the shows that are confirmed so far–it is not a complete list. More dates will be announced over the coming weeks.

“Erry Witcha Way”, the new single off Zilla’s new EP The Book of Trill, sees the Huntsville, AL native laying out his blueprint to getting paid over a bounce inducing beat provided by Bossman of the Block Beattaz. “Erry Witcha Way” is further proof that in addition to making great music, the OG from the Northside has game for sell.
Audio: John Robinson & Kyo Itachi - "Love U Like Music"
New Music from the Latest album from John Robinson w/ French Beatmaker Kyo Itachi "The Path of Mastery". This song features Capetown South Africa's own Contro'Versy (R.I.P.) & Vocalist Maty Soul. Contro'Versy will be remembered for her brilliant approach to expressing herself through Hip Hop culture and all the light she has shined on so many people during her time here with us in the physical.
"TIMELESS" is the fourth single and accompanying video from Raleigh rhymesayer S.Gold's latest project The Storm. Released in December 2012, The Storm has received a wide range of support including being named one of the top North/South Carolina releases of 2012.
The ILL of Atlanta drops another one. The two brothers, Brennan (rapper) and Blake Belair (producer), have been all over the net in 2013 since the release of their debut mixtape, ILLANTA, this past February on Datpiff.com. The new track, "Father, Forgive Me" is controversial to say the least. Take a listen.

Houston, TX ~ For some people, if they didn't have bad luck they'd have no luck at all and such seems to be the case for Louisianna rapper, Mr. Real Estate aka Big Unk. Well on his way to making a name for himself, Unk's life choices landed him on a long vacation, courtesy of Johnny Longarm back in 2011.
Finally out, and with his music career back on track, Unk found himself at the wrong end of a pistol this past April at his own video shoot here in Houston; taking one to the neck and requiring a long convalescence. Back on his feet, Unk is back in action and prepping the drop of his mixtape, "Da Devil Is A Lie", expected later this summer.
The first single is "My Beeper" and lest the technology, or lack thereof, convince you the video was shot long before Unk went to jail, be informed that in certain 'professions', the untimely demise of chirp phones is bringing beepers back. Who knew?
