Another beautiful visual from Uptown XO shot and directed by Ralph Lorenzo from the clctv . This is an important visual that reflects what XO stands for as an mc. "Occupy DC" will be on the upcoming mixtape and was based of the Occupy movement going on earlier in 2012.  The video asks viewers to imagine a universe where knowledge is truly dangerous.  It's a good glimpse of what's in store for XO fans.

PR: Freeway Signs With @Babygrande, Prepares New Album

Freeway Signs With Babygrande, Prepares New Album Diamond In The Ruff

Arguably the most revered lyricist to ever come out of Philadelphia, Freeway, returns to his roots, once again using his powerful voice to drop gems on listeners with his highly-anticipated solo album, Diamond In The Ruff. Serving as his first official full-length album since teaming up with Jake One for the critically acclaimed 2010 project, The Stimulus Package, Diamond In The Ruff has been years in the making and is truly Freeway’s most illustrious album yet.

Ruddy Rock states, "Freeway is a legend. 'Philadelphia Freeway' is easily one of my favorite albums of all time. From his time working with Jay-Z and Roc-A-Fella to his independent releases, Freeway remains one of the most consistent artists. We're excited to partner with him and Amir for 'Diamond In The Ruff.'"

Best known for his distinct voice and true-to-life lyrics, Freeway continually uses his one-of-a-kind flow to narrate from an autobiographical perspective. David Amidon of PopMatters exclaims, "Freeway is one of the more unique vocalists in hip-hop...the guy's delivery is breathtaking...beyond his words, Freeway's rhythm is what really tells the story and attracts attention."

Diamond In The Ruff is a truly remarkable album, with a diverse selection of songs ranging from uplifting anthems to gritty street tales. Featuring production by frequent collaborators, Jake One, Needlez and Bink!, and guest appearances from Wale, Styles P, Marsha Ambrosius, Musiq Soulchild, and more, Diamond In The Ruff is certainly Freeway’s most cohesive album to date. Diamond In The Ruff will hit retailers worldwide on November 13, 2012 via Babygrande Records.
