"Casa Verde brings together Green Street emcees, A-live and Soupa, and Texas (via Detroit) spitter Howard Floz for a 5-track offering. Produced entirely by Coopac and Renaissance, Casa Verde features cinematic soundscapes over which the three emcees flex their lyrical abilities. The EP highlights the hunger and focus of the artists as they try to evade the pitfalls of the game on their way to better things."

To start 2013, A.Dd+ has put the finishing touches on their latest album, titled DiveHiFlyLo. The album, which will be released early this spring, will include 12 tracks, with production from Picnictyme, who produced all of When Pigs Fly, in addition to folks like Kuddie Fresh, Stompboxx, Fly Life Productions, and more. The album, which A.Dd+ describe as darker and far more personal than When Pigs Fly, pulls its name from a saying that stems from the early days A.Dd+, back when the duo was working on their debut mixtape, Power Of The Tongue. "We always say, 'Every man is a king,'" says Paris Pershun, "but DiveHiFlyLo is playing off that. It's like saying, 'Be above average, but stay well-grounded.' It's important to be able to always relate to the common man."

Illa J, T3 and Young RJ (who also produced the joint) bless their fans with "No Mas": “driven by a infectiously smooth set of strings that gets backed up by some subtle, mellowed out drums that the fellas savagely attack with their skills. In their typical lyrical, gritty form the fellas hit the beat running and speak about their skills, streets, and much more in the time that the track takes up."
