Video: Don Cannon Presents GT Garza "No Regrets" (feat. Brian Angel of Day 26)
Houston native GT Garza recently released his "Batteries Not Included 2" mixtape hosted by Don Cannon. Here goes a brand new video off the project, an introspective cut titled "No Regrets" featuring Brian Angel of Day 26 who are signed to Atlantic Records.
Early this spring, MUMBLS released his Hella Novellas mixtape, a project that showed off the Berkeley rapper's penchant for woozy yet witty, drug-influenced humor. The tape bore fan favorites such as "Parachute" and "Spellbound," both of which received delightfully trippy visual accompaniment. MUMBLS followed his new mixtape with a 44-city tour, opening for mentor Andre Nickatina, and now, MUMBLS is excited to release a new track, "Dick For Brains," which features IamSu!.
The song, says MUMBLS, is inspired by "a girl that I was, and still am, heavily involved with." MUMBLS kicks off the first verse giving his listeners an introduction to his leading lady, breaking down why he's become so smitten. Namely, says MUMBLS, "her taste in movies, booze, drugs, video games - as well as her breast size."
IamSu!, in addition to being featured on the track also lends his production to the new single, with the two Bay artists getting in the studio together after MUMBLS had the chance to check out a number of Su!'s beats. "It was fun for me collaborating with someone for the first time," says MUMBLS. "It was nice to share the sound space with someone else and work off what he laid down."
In other news, MUMBLS is currently in the running to be nominated for this year's Bay Area Freshmen 10 Class. For all info, including how to vote to nominate MUMBLS, read here: http://www.thizzler.com/baf10 .
Wild Style can be summarized as pure 90s Hip Hop, where Chuuwee is taking the classic elements of the golden era with the look, sound and the feel and then applying them to the present day. Inspired by Gang Starr, A Tribe Called Quest, Big L, De La Soul with even hints of DMX, Wild Style promises to be Chuuwee’s break-out project, one that will showcase him as being a frontrunner lyricist from Hip-Hop’s new school; while also paying homage and respect to the great pioneers of the 1990’s. “Wild Style is the album that’s going to eradicate weak rap off the face of the map. It is the return of real Hip-Hop. It’s pure and it’s not me trying to re-make it. It’s not me telling you its 90s Hip-Hop; it is 90s Hip-Hop” says Chuuwee.
A recent recipient of XXLmag.com’s “The Break,” Chuuwee has finally unveiled the lead-single, “Rock The Party,” (produced by Jonathan Lowell) from Wild Style which can be heard here: http://www.sharebeast.com/z67eqic2310s.
