MP3: Kid Static - "World Goes Round"

With his latest solo album, It Gleams, released in early June, Kid Static has been keeping plenty busy. In addition to the remixes and non-album tracks that he's been feeding fans over the past weeks, the LA-via-Chicago rapper/producer united with Windy City production team The Hood Internet for a collaboration that will appear on their upcoming album, FEAT. Static also continues to host his weekly webcast on, which airs every Sunday, and recently pulled in over 80,000 listeners for a single episode. Today, Static is excited to release yet another new track for fans, "World Goes Round."

The song, which premiered on DJBooth, finds Static delving a little deeper than he has with recent singles "T-Shirts & Sneakers" or "Rocks & Toothpicks," as he offers commentary on the way that average citizens interact - or, more appropriately, choose to not interact - with current and wordly events. "Yes, there are economic and societal injustices," remarks Static, speaking on what he feels is a prevailing world-view for most. "But I'm having a hard enough time doing me to worry about that."

The track, which will appear on a forthcoming EP, It Gleams: B-Sides, skillfully matches his tongue-in-cheek lyricism about the status quo with a stirring, violin-sampled beat provided by producer Maker, along with some jazzy vocal accents from Jimetta Rose. "I think the energy and skill that they brought to the table really helped push me as an artist," says Static. "They really understood where I was trying to go with it, and the execution of the track was better for it."

Video: Wiley f/ Ms.D - "Heatwave"

Wiley, the godfather of grime, returns with the new single ‘Heatwave’ which will be released on July 30th on Warner Bros. Records.

Featuring a huge pop hook courtesy of guest vocalist Ms D (who also featured on Chipmunk’s #1 hit ‘Oopsy Daisy’), the immediately addictive ‘Heatwave’ is full of scorching seasonal references and looks set to soundtrack the rest of the summer. The track was produced by Rymez (Wretch 32, Tinie Tempah).

MP3: Muzic Class f/ Pate - "Hamburgers"

From Semp Rok:

MP3: Muzic Class f/ Pate - "Hamburgers"

Philly’s own Muzic Class debuts in the blog world with a rather interesting track to not sleep on called Hamburgers featuring Pate. It comes off more like a cypher, a little remenicient of the Mike Banger producer track “YM Banger” featuring Gudda Gudda, Jae Millz and Tyga off Lil Wayne’s LP I am Not a Human Being. This four-man crew still has a long road ahead of them, but no dead ends at the moment.

About Muzic Class It was Bob Marley who said, “One good thing about muzic, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” Hence, To Whom It May Concern: I hope you’re ready for a painless TKO as you’re about to get hit by the force of four collectively unmatched artists. Unique, Unwavering and Unprecedented: three words that scrape the surface of the distinctively novel sound that is, The Muzic Class! Muzic Class consists of four members which include two lyricists and writers Marvin (Marv) Mack, Jamal (J-heated) Henry, and two songwriter-producers Allen (Gibbs) Harrison and Morris (Starks) Nyanway. Based out of the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Muzic Class brings back vintage production and lyrical word play, like that of Outkast, young vigor rendered by Kid and Play

PR: Upcoming Hip Hop Film - TRAVEL PROPERLY (@RahimSamad)

From Rutherford A:

PR: Upcoming Hip Hop Film - TRAVEL PROPERLY

Tampa, Florida - June 28, 2012 - Travel Properly: the Movie is a film that follows the lives of two young men, one on the cusp of stardom and the other down on his luck, as their lives intertwine and a job leads them down an unexpected path.

Travel Properly is an independent film that was written, produced, directed, and shot entirely on location in Tampa, Florida. The film stars Colin Felder, Akil Morehouse, and Hip Hop artists Rahim Samad and Funkghost. The fim features the directing artistry of Jeff Osborne. As well as portraying the lead role, Rahim Samad composes the soundtrack, wrote the script, and helped produce the film. Travel Properly is full length film that will be released on November 7th, with screenings in select theatres throughout the United States.

As a director in Tampa, Jeff Osborne has set the bar for local music videos. He directed all of Rahim Samad’s videos, several of Funkghost’s videos, and recently, local “Femcee” Dynasty’s music video featuring the legendary DJ Premier. Rahim Samad is a well established rap artist and member of the Tampa hip hop community. He is also the  producer of the entertainment show RighteousDisorderTV. Rahim chose to collaborate with Jeff Osborne to create an artistic film of the highest caliber, which will be submitted to many film festivals. This film is anchored in the local music community, even featuring a prominent punk and metal venue, Unit 19, with many members of the punk and metal music community making appearances. The role of the artist Funkghost, who has been writing and producing locally for over a decade, further strengthens the ties between this film and Tampa’s music scene.
