@JonnyQuest617 is an up and coming artist out of Boston, Massachusetts who is prepping the release of his first official mixtape titled "The Lost Tapes" at the end of the first quarter and an official E.P. alongside beatsmith @Confidencebeats in the second quarter. The first single from the mixtape is titled "Shopaholic" and is produced by Push Keys Productions.
Parable vs. Mac Soto first introduced their musical collaboration with the sample-heavy, “Play,” and dig even deeper with their follow-up, “Soul.” Produced and composed entirely by Mac Soto, “Soul,” is an emotionally-driven piece with multiple musical movements. Mac Soto opens up with graceful and sincere vocals backed by soft piano notes, which quickly explodes with an aggressive breakbeat topped with Parable’s cutthroat yet honest raps.
The song touches the unique, heartfelt topic of realization of fault and admission of guilt, while still maintaining an upbeat energy and drive. Stay tuned for a new song by Parable vs. Mac Soto every two weeks, leading up their upcoming project, aimed for Summer 2012 release.

"BEING B.I.G.", a tribute to the late great Notorious B.I.G., will feature Buffalo-bred artists performing songs from Biggie Smalls' legendary discography. "BEING B.I.G." happens Friday, March 9th at Duke's Bohemian Grove Bar (253 Allen St.), on the anniversary of Notorious' untimely death.
The tribute night has a greater meaning though - to raise awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
The night is the brainchild of Damon Bodine - concert promoter, staple in the Buffalo music scene, and Hodgkins Lymphoma survivor. 100% of proceeds from the event will help fund Damon's participation in the NYC Half Marathon this March as part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team In Training.
