PR: Nyce - New Video + Opening for Jeru the Damaja in Montreal
Montreal hip hop artist NYCE is one busy rapper in 2012 having already released two singles ‘Dopest on The Scene‘ and ‘Best Price‘ to great acclaim along with touring across Canada with American rapper Freeway and opening for Raekwon (Wu Tang Clan) back in March in his hometown of MTL. After landing himself on the April cover of Vandala Mag, NYCE is now letting loose his latest music video in support of his next single 24/7 ft. Tony “Touch Down” Davis & T. Money from his upcoming debut album “Certified” set for release later this year on local label Hustle Cartel Ent.
New Music Video - 24/ 7/ remix ft. T-Money, Tony 'Touchdown' Davis
Following two successful collaborative efforts alongside fellow producer/rapper The Alchemist as the power duo Gangrene -2010’s Gutter Water and 2012’s Vodka & Ayahuasca- and the 2011 gem with The Alchemist as Gangrene & Roc Marciano, the Greneberg EP; The Oxnard, California based beat-smith and emcee Oh No returns for a solo mission.
Oh No (born Michael Jackson; younger brother of Madlib and son of singer Otis Jackson) was granted unprecedented access to the Rudy Ray Moore / Dolemite audio archives and given free rein to slice, dice, chop and sample his way through the classic-yet-absolutely-filthy catalog. He was able to use legendary material from The Human Tornado, Petey Wheatstraw, the Dolemite Soundtrack and more, plus a multitude of previously unreleased and alternate acapellas and instrumentals. The end result is Ohnomite (available on 6-5-2012), a 19 track head-banging extravaganza of sloppy funk, dirty soul, and brainy lyricism, all aimed at one thing- making your head nod and your ass shake. And when you add to that guests spots from the likes of Evidence, Phife Dawg, The Alchemist, Erick Sermon, Rapper Pooh, MED, Guilty Simpson, Roc Marciano, Sticky Fingaz, Chino XL, Roc C, Prozack Turner, Termanology, Frank Nitt and this cut with MF Doom “3 Dollars.”
Arsun F!st: "Analog Sessions" Mini Mixtape and Lecture
In the era of digital music we have gotten used to pristine sound. Analog Sessions is a tribute "mini" mixtape with a lecture on Analog sound woven in...I blatantly released each song on my soundcloud page without the lecture component to see the initial unbiased response...Many thanks to all who listened. This will be the LAST free download project I release in 2012...Analog Sessions is a throw back to those days of the exclusive but gritty sounding mixtape, when the beats were raw and the emcee was hungry on the mic...Attack the Block
