Tom Delay Beats presents Sharks in the Sky, a 12 track collection of contemporary hip-hop instrumentals that has landed on Brake Fast Records. A dexterous producer, Tom Delay, showcases his skill with a myriad of beats that touch a number of hip-hop subgenres. Sharks in the Sky contains pure hip-hop head-nodders like “Dream Lab” and “The Living Dead”, quirky but hard hitting 8-bit-sounding beats like “Echelon” and “So Filthy”, and smooth joints like “Just”. Then there are tracks like “The Lives” and “Panoptic” that give off a triumphant indie/electro rock vibe, as Delay seems to toy with the effervescent boundaries of the genre.
Rocky Diamonds, who is one of Polow Da Don's newest artists on his Zone 4 label and a member of the group MDMA has dropped his new mixtape, "Artofficial." Here goes one of the tracks, "Forgive Me" produced by Trakksounds & Chinky P.

Swiss-American psychiatrist and author Elisabeth Kübler-Ross first hypothesized the five stages of grief in her 1969 book, On Death and Dying. When faced with death or its corporeal equivalent, an individual often moves through turbulent emotional stages of denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Nearly a half-century after the theory’s introduction, Saskatonian super-producer Factor has assembled an all-star cast of Fake Four family and friends to explore the phenomenon through the tale of a man losing his wife and attempting to raise her from the dead. The album Woke Up Alone is set for release on July 23, 2013.

Mr. Green Runs a Subaru Forester Through the Beat Machine with Slaughter Rico

"This episode was recorded entirely at the East Coast Gas Station in North Philadelphia. First we met up with Philly legend Slaughter Rico (look up "5 Dolla Nigga") and started grabbing sounds from the car. We got stuff from the trunk, the glove box, the keys, the horn, the ignition beep and a couple random other things from around the station. Then I loaded the sounds in the beat machine and chopped them up. Finally, Slaughter Rico dropped a crazy verse over the beat."
Mr. Green and crew inviting people to make their own beats from the car sounds. Download the sounds from this link:
They say it’s different across the bridge, and there is something definitely different about GQ. In the words of 9th Wonder, simply put, “he’s a star”. GQ, who Grammy Award winning producer, 9th Wonder, coins his “secret weapon” is not only a former NCAA basketball champion, but in fact Oakland’s next Hip Hop hero.
Just want to start by saying thanks so much for your support on my Album "Four Left Turns" a couple months ago! I just released the Official Video for one of the songs on that album, entitled "Roll of the Dice"… I'd love your continued support if you like what you see!
