MP3: Sly Boogy - "Have Sex"


From J Melo:

MP3: Sly Boogy - "Have Sex"

Here goes some new Sly Boogy off his upcoming "The Devil's Nightmare Vol.2" dropping soon.

Music video for "Have Sex" coming shortly.

"Have Sex"
MP3: DJ JS-1 - "Last To Know" Ft. Tonedeff


From Audible Treats:

MP3: DJ JS-1 - "Last To Know" Ft. Tonedeff

The Song:

Everybody's a critic, but not necessarily an expert, and although DJ JS-1 has been in the game for years, he still has to endure a seemingly endless amount of empty advice and double-talk. The other week, JS-1, along with featured guest and long-time collaborator Tonedeff, released the video for "Last To Know." The single, now being released for fans as an MP3, is from JS-1's forthcoming album, No One Cares, dropping June 21st, and takes aim at all of the external second-guessing the two have had to endure throughout their careers, and, as it's explained in “Last To Know,” despite the pair's accomplishments it sadly doesn't stop the know-it-alls at record labels, naïve fans, and the just plain simple-minded from unloading their opinions on JS-1 and Tonedeff. Instead of sounding bitter and jaded, though, JS-1 provides a light, jazzy beat for Tonedeff's animated delivery and tongue-in-cheek lyrics.

DJ JS-1's No One Cares will be available for purchase on June 21st via a joint venture between Fat Beats Records and JS-1's own Ground Original.

Recently signed to Bystorm/Jive Records as an artist, I.C. Green has been in the business doing production and playing on other artist's records for years.  With production credits with Akon, writing nods with Whitney, and playing keys for Beiber being just a few highlights, Green has made his rounds on the liner-note side of the business for the last decade.

QuESt :: The Reason (The Defense Mechanism)

QuESt


This one is one of the sleepers of the year, because it's been released since January and I discovered it a week ago. It's a shame, too. Because QuESt brings out the TRUTH in this project and he really goes hard on it, yet folks still snore away. I'm putting this on the FMF to serve as a airhorn wake-up call to those who need some good music and this one is indeed.

Sha Stimuli :: The Break Up Part 2: The Proposal

Sha Stimuli

Speaking of sleepers, Sha Stimuli has been slept on so long, this mixtape might as well come with a free downloadable mattress. But don't front though, he isn't ignored because he's wack, it's just the twisted fate of irony that makes him ignored because he's far from it. Check this one out and I bet you'll become a fan of this Brooklyn emcee.

2. Help (How Can I?) (feat. N.I.K.) (prod. by Clams Casino)
