Video: MHz Legacy - "Mechanical Me" Ft. Jason Rose
Courtesy Audible Treats.
Last week, MHz Legacy released their long-awaited album, MHz Legacy, via Man Bites Dog Records. Already the accolades have been rolling in, including a XL-rated review from XXL Magazine, and today, following the release of last week's Blu-featuring "Yellow + Blue," MHz Legacy is excited to release a new video, this one for the album's latest single, "Mechanical Me." The song is produced by Jason Rose, who also provides the track's sung chorus, and, as the album closer on MHz Legacy, is one of the most adventurous, ambitious tracks the Columbus crew has released to-date, an up-tempo affair with clear, well-executed pop sensibilities.
The video, directed by R.M.L., and premiered today by PrefixMag, is equally ambitious. Shot in a tormented medical lab, the clip features Jason Rose as a mad scientist, working on his captured victims -- Copywrite, chips implanted on the operating table; Tage Future caged awaiting his own transformation -- alongside his own Frankenstein creation and tight-clothed nurse.
Wu-Tang Clan emcee Masta Killa recently announced plans to release his third album Selling My Soul on December 11th. Now, he's unveiling a taste off the new album. Featuring production from fellow Wu-Tang member Inspectah Deck, "R U Listening" is a soul-drenched gem sure to become a certified Wu classic. Selling My Soul is Masta Killa's first new studio album in six years, and also features production from the likes of 9th Wonder, PF Cuttin, and Mathematics. Check out "R U Listening" here:
Special delivery from Black Dave, who drops off his latest visual effort for "On Da Map." The clip showcases the young rapper making his way throughout New York with a mysterious package. The contents of the box aren't exactly what you would expect, but you'll have to see the video through until the end to find out. Enjoy as you can also grab the coinciding audio HERE. A mixtape from Black Dave is also underway, stay tuned.
Madd Caesar brings you Pet Elephant featuring Sabac Red (formerly of Non Phixion), Kiwi (formerly Native Guns), Nero Caesar (Madd Caesar), and Satellite High. This political track questions the state of the Nation and the challenges we face past, present, and future. True power lies in the individual and the communities around us. In this spirit, 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the Red Cross to aid the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Together we can make a difference.
Milwaukee-bred, NYC-based emcee Signif presents "Rocket Fuel (PCP)", the first single from the forthcoming album Significant Wizdom II: (Atypical), Signif's second collaboration album with producer Gee Wiz. Their first collaboration album was released in spring 2011 (listen here), which Signif swiftly followed up with her album Embracing Rejection.
CuzOH! Black Readies Debut EP "Everybody's Favorite Cousin"
On November 13th Hempstead, NY's CuzOH! Black will release his debut EP, "Everybody's Favorite Cousin", via WeGoinin.com. Full of heartfelt lyricism inspired by real life events CuzOH will make you feel like you knew him for many years; hence the title. Featured guests include his cousin Wordsmithand Double Up Entertainment's Paul Rivers Baily, while the production is handled by JS Aka The Best, Benny Rome, Capish, Street Level & Moe Productions.
Whether it's “No Winter Coat”, "A Graphic Ending or “Marvelous Motivation", CuzOH! Black shows some good range as an artist and does a great job taking the listener on a journey through reality/fantasy at times. We have to thank CuzOH! for making a project that will suit the needs of hardcore HipHop fans and commercial fans alike; something he has been chipping away at for the past few years.
Hardly new to the scene, CuzOH! Black originally went by the name "Black Knight" and is the only other artist signed to Wordsmith's independent label NU Revolution Entertainment LLC. His track record spans 6 years appearing on all of Wordsmith's Mixtapes along with his solo albums and collabo project with HipHop legend Chubb Rock called "Bridging the Gap." Needless to say he is prepared to reach another level musically and rep is hometown of New York.
Raised in Hempstead CuzOH! Black already has an uphill battle as a rapper in the increasingly flooded mecca of HipHop saying, "with all the MC's in NY it was important for me to stand out. I felt like it was important for me to tell a different story though I come from the same struggle as my neighbors. I needed to create a sound that represented the vast experiences I collected over the years."
CuzOH! Black's goal of becoming your favorite cousin will soon be realized when he becomes a household name or you invite him to live in your guest room to record his next project!
Everybody's Favorite Cousin will be available November 13th, 2012
