Sometimes you gotta make your fans work a little bit for their free music so Memphis up-and-comer, June, took to Twitter yesterday, promising to drop this new video today only after getting at least 1oo Retweets from his fans! Apparently it worked.

The Extremities (Uncle Fester & Fresh Kils) are happy to announce the details of their upcoming Canadian and U.S. tour. Set to begin on June 20th in Eerie, Pennsylvania, the duo will be delighting crowds throughout the Eastern U.S. and Canada with their refreshed hip hop mixes and killer MPC routines. Included in the tour is a date at the TD Halifax Jazz Festival, opening an all-ages show at the Pavilion for Ottawa's A Tribe Called Red.
Supporting Fes and Kils on their journey is MC Mad Dukez out of Buffalo, New York. Mad Dukez may be an unfamiliar name outside of the Empire State's underground circuit, but this young hip hop star is rising fast and shining bright, right out of the gate.

Trailer: "Dirty Laundry: Greed Has No Face" (Feli Fame)
Courtesy Nancy B.
A young man (Fame) tries to pursue a life of peace and settles down with his significant other (Brooke) while working at a laundromat. His plans take a drastic turn once the laundromat is taken over by criminals and everyone is held at gunpoint. With greed on his mind Fame makes a run with the criminal’s belongings not thinking about the consequences that would follow. Greed begins to trickle more in his life when he is caught between a love triangle, money and his peers.
Statik Selektah recreates the beat for "Bird's Eye View" step by step. Watch as he arranges the instrumental, adding scratches and original organ notes. He then explains how it was originally for an unreleased Nas remix, but ended up getting Raekwon, Joey Bada$$ and Black Thought on the track.
Kosha Dillz is going-going back-back to Cali-Cali and this time he's brought his crony Rapper Pooh along for the ride. Produced by Matty Trump (the acclaimed producer of Sam Adam's debut album, Boston's Boy) and directed by Matthew Vaughan, "West Coast Flavor" is a must for your summer playlist.
