Video: Full |REBEL| Jacket - "Stray Bullet" f/ Big Rube
It's not everyday that seriously promising hip-hop talent emerges from the deserts of Phoenix, Arizona – and even less often does that talent transplant itself there by way of Dallas, Texas, and Anchorage, Alaska. But for emerging duo Full |REBEL| Jacket, the pairing of rapper's G and Q, that's exactly what happened, forming after striking up artistic chemistry through a series of parking lot freestyle sessions. Now, on September 3rd, Full |REBEL| Jacket will release their new free EP, the REBEL EP, and today, FRJ is excited to release the project's debut single and video, "Stray Bullet."
This show's theme: Safe sex. Or unsafe sex. Take your pick. After all, why spend hours at the gym preparing for summer and spend all that money getting fresh gear at Marshall's when you're exposing yourself to a sexually-transmitted gamma ray? Just a thought. From STDs to unwanted pregnancies, this show is the soundtrack to the irresponsible, painful, and scary (albeit hilarious at times) adventures of glove-less love. Yes, I found 25+ great songs about this stuff. Ignorant and crude at times, but oh so informative. Click link below to download / listen to the debauchery:

Audio: Sir Michael Rocks (The Cool Kids) - "Now You Do"
Coming on the heels of a prolific 2011, where he dropped three solo mixtapes (The Rocks Report, Premier Politics, Premier Politics 1.5), and a 45-city tour with Mac Miller in the first half of 2012, Rocks displays an advanced and mature sound throughout Lap of Lux. Producers on the collection include Cardo (Taylor Gang), Hit-Boy and J.Hill (Chief Keef) as well as his partner in The Cool Kids, Chuck Inglish while features include Casey Veggies, Mac Miller and more.
One of the standouts on the 15 track offering is “You Know What” produced by the in demand Hit-Boy (G.O.O.D. Music). The song features a playful beat with Rocks rhyming differently than fans might be used to. He explains, “I feel like I couldn’t have done this on one of my group projects, or even my earlier solo projects because it’s a new sound that I’ve never really dealt with. I’ve got a real rapid-fire flow on there. This is something new that I’ve just stepped into.”
Another banger on Lap Of Lux is “Reservations.” Produced by Cardo (Taylor Gang), Rocks reminds fans of his rap skills and his easy delivery and story telling ability is showcased on this mid-tempo song. Not forgetting where he came from, Rocks teams up with his partner Chuck Inglish for “Good Sushi,” a Cool Kids sound with a 2012 spin on it.
Sir Michael Rocks Lap Of Lux will be available Physically and Digitally on 8-2-2-012.
