Award-winning Singapore emcee Kevin Lester, aka ‘The LionCityBoy’ announces the release of his debut EP Everything You Love, You Hate via Vertusent/Sony RED on April 2. The first single, "Hear Me Go" impacts mixshow radio on March 19 and is available for download at iTunes today.
“Hear Me Go” is a song about letting loose, being free and not being concerned about social commentary. With a soul etched to the groove of hip hop and an edge influenced by the raw exposed nerve of punk rock, The LionCityBoy has established himself as a premiere musician in Singapore. Described by Nylon For Guys as “The most public face of Singaporean hip-hop” and by Time Out as “One of Singapore’s most talked-about hip-hop up-and-comers,” the rising international musician has gained rave reviews from critics and fans alike.
Lester explains, “Growing up [in Singapore] has taught me to respect all cultures. We’re such a diverse, multi-cultural city that the closest people around you could be of five different races, each mixed with many other ethnicities. Because we’re a small country, just forty-five kilometers wide, you can’t help becoming immersed and affected by a multitude of different types of languages, food and of course, music. It’s a beautiful experience.”
Last summer Kevin Lester performed a remix of “Give It To Me” alongside Nelly Furtado during the The Spirit Indestructible showcase, and played the US at last year’s A3C Hip Hop Music Festival and CMJ’s Music Marathon. The LionCityBoy returns to North America this month with shows at the 2013 SXSW Festival and Canadian Music Week in support of the release of his debut EP Everything You Love, You Hate.

(Atlanta) In the new video for "Right One/ Wrong Time," Spree Wilson continues to charismatically build upon his never ending list of talents and accomplishments. The singer/songwriter/rapper/multi-instrumentalist melds sounds of the future with the classic '90s ATL bass scene that shaped the inspiration for the track.
I would like to submit my latest single/video to your website entitled, "Real N%&$A," Produced by Slot-A [@iamslota]; video is directed by Aaron Perkins, Jr. [@apjfilms]. This song was featured on ChiCity Hip-Hop's [@chicityhiphop] latest mixtape, "Forever Chi Compilation 2012."
After releasing a teaser visual for it last week, Sir Michael releases the audio for "Money Came," (produced by Choo Jackson) a track which was initially slated to find a home on his forthcoming "Banco" EP--but has since been trimmed and wont make the cut. Consider it a loosie (a very dope loosie) to tide you over.

Sometimes life can take you on a crazy ride. All of the distractions, the ups & downs, the peaks & valleys can discourage you and deter you from following what's in your heart. Dreams give you something to live for and chasing them is what keeps you alive... that's why you "Cant Let Go"!
