Da Camp falls thru with a comical video for their Benny Beats produced "Hero" off their previous Mixtape, VII Day Vacay, shot and edited by Unkleluc. Watch as each member of Da Camp plays the role of a different super hero to save the women of the world from the less fortunate lame dudes they are forced to deal with. Call 1-800-555-HERO and maybe you can be saved too. Timeless and olDCool Pt 2 coming up next... Stay tuned for more from the Miami team in the near future.

The Niceguys lost their minds in NYC last week as they met with industry VIPs in mysterious places to discuss their new album James Kelley, arriving on 9/11!  Even more mysterious were the "freestyles" they dropped randomly all over the Big Apple... we're so confused! Check out The Niceguys "New York Minute" video below, and enjoy the fun with this Houston Hip Hop quartet!

Audio: Styles of Beyond f/ Michael Buble - "Damn"

Courtesy Matt B.

Los Angeles hip-hop heroes, Styles of Beyond, return to bring you their long awaited third album entitled "Reseda Beach" which will be released on 10-23-2012 via Dirty Version Records. To set things off properly, it seems there was this song laying around featuring guest vocals from Grammy award winner Michael Bublé that was originally recorded and intended to be on "Reseda Beach." A non-Bublé version of this song will end up on the retail album, but for now let's all enjoy this little buzz starter/teaser treat from the West Coast wing of the Demigodz. "Damn" is produced by the group's production team, Vin Skully & Cheapshot.

PR: Cormega Pays Respect to Chris Lighty in Letter

Courtesy Jackie O.

Did you ever see a karate movie where the student impatiently wants to do more then the chores the master gives him; only to later find out that the chores are key parts to the training. That's what my relationship with Chris Lighty was like. He was Steinbrenner and I was Billy Martin (he just never fired me as much). He was a leader, a true leader is measured by the success of those he leads and Chris led a multitude of artist,producers, and DJs to success. When I came home from jail I was supremely ignorant. Intelligent yes, but ignorant when it came to the music industry. I thought being a good emcee meant I would automatically be successful. I thought I was somebody because I was known and respected in the streets. Chris taught me that respect in the street means nothing in the industry and that being a MC and being a recording artist are two completely different identities. He advised me not to bring certain friends around. At the time I didn't understand or appreciate that advice, but sure enough the same people he spoke of I don't associate with anymore.

He invited me to a barbecue at his house. The invite was for Mega and one person. I came alone and was upset when I saw my peers with more than one guest. Later I realized why my invite was for Mega and one person. Most rappers aren't known street figures and I was still one foot in the industry and the other in the streets. Now I understand exactly why my invite was Mega and one person! Honestly, now that I have a house, I would do the same thing. Home is where family is and for him to even invite me to his home was a gesture of trust. He gave me a tour of his house just he and I and said in so many words this is what its about, not the streets. He had the basketball court in the back and when I got some money (years later) I got myself one similar to his. So yes I swagga jacked Chris.

My album sat on the shelf for years but Chris (and he alone) tried to put me on the "Survival Of The Illest Tour." I wanted to prove to him that I was ready and by most accounts I was. So when the tour was over and I was on a few albums, I felt I was ready but I didn't feel like I was a priority at Violator, so I told them to release me from my contract. I had to speak to another exec at Def Jam and finally I was released, free to sign elsewhere or in my case go back to the streets.

I bumped into Chris years later and he hooked me up with someone who wanted to do business with me. I respected that, but I fell out with him months later when I discovered that he was managing my then rival (a rapper you may have heard of). I felt betrayed because Chris was like a big brother to me. I said things in interviews about Violator because I was hurt. Truth be told when I later put out The Realness, it was for the fans, but it was for me to prove to Chris, that I had what it took to succeed.

About a year ago DJ J. Love called me and said my name was brought up and Chris' response was "that's the one that got away" I was happy to hear that he said something positive. Just last month we saw each other and it was like we never parted. But now we part! Chris is always going to be who I aspire to be like in the industry. He represents WINNING, LOYALTY, and CONSISTENCY and to this day I've never heard an artist say Chris jerked them. Even though Testament wasn't released by Violator, I will say this, he gave me 100 % publishing and I had nice point percentage. My first deal was the biggest at the time for a new artist. A quarter million and that was because of Chris. My first recording plaque came from Chris, first tour came from Chris, and the first true sorrow I ever felt for a music executive dying is from Chris. - Cormega
