This Friday Guilty Simpson will be blessing the stage for a legendary event that Miami is well in need of. DJ Guilletine and Antisteez piece together a great mix of what the definition of an under rated MC really is. Guilty Simpson: an MC that has worked with a list of great producers, like J Dilla, Madlib, Alchemist, Black Milk and even our very own Miami Beat Wave. Guilty Simpson: an MC that has been featured on projects with very serious names, like Sean Price, Illa J, Elzhi, Frank n Dank and even Mr. Chief and Wrekonize…
Fresh off this year's edition of his annual Paid Dues festival, Los Angeles rapper Murs presents the six-song Varsity Blues 2 EP, the sequel to 2002's first installment. Murs (just about) kicks drugs and alcohol, pulls a gun on the 'other guy', dedicates one song to a dead love, another to a lost groupie, and ends by breaking clean with maybe his toughest habit, Los Angeles. Varsity Blues 2 is the sound of a young man strangling his weaknesses one by one, only to discover that nobody gets them all. Production by Aesop Rock, Terrace Martin, Issue, Foudnation, Karl Berringer and Droop-E.
Brooklyn rap juggernaut 5Mics is excited to unveil his official rocking music video "Hungriest N*gga Alive", presented by 5 Fingers Music Group. The video was directed by WorldStarHipHop.com's video team Street Heat and was shot in Brooklyn, New York.
The Rock-inspired track "Hungriest N*gga Alive" showcases 5Mics unfulfilled hunger for more in the Hip-Hop game, not tired of pushing boundaries by mixing a Rock edge sound with his lyrical sharpness while delivering vivid rhymes and smooth flows.
Being a feared battle rapper with skillful wordplay and witty metaphors, 5Mics earned his name in the underground shortly after he entered the Hip-Hop game in 2000. Having successfully worked with heavyweights such as DJ Kay Slay, Shyheim, Lil Wayne and being featured in The Source, Drahma Magazine, and Yo! Raps, 5Mics' passion and dedication makes him stand in a league of his own.
Recently, the real 5Mics witnessed that a rapper of the same name entered the stage of Hip-Hop in 2008, signed to T.I.'s Grand Hustle, years after the original 5Mics commercially started his Rap career. Now, the time has come to air out who's real and who's fake.
Combining an immense amount of raw talent and amazing showmanship, 5Mics will prove to the world that there can only be one 5Mics. Respect his grind and join the movement at www.facebook.com/5mics09 .
After a decade behind the boards, maticulous breaks his silence with a carefully arranged, fully-formed EP that resonates with the time-honored tomes of New York's underground. Seamlessly interweaving the thump and swagger of DJ Premier's hardest post-Gangstarr productions with Pete Rock's easygoing, blissed-out jazz, maticulous's pristine beatcraft is elevated even higher by instantly classic contributions from RA the Rugged Man, Reef the Lost Cauze, Ruste Juxx, and Rock of Heltah Skeltah. maticulous builds on the tradition of New York legends to deliver a melodic, intrinsically old-school EP that reaches beyond boom-bap to achieve a sound wholly his own and tastefully progressive. "maticulous represents a dope new generation of beatmakers that respects the culture," Duck Down's Marco Polo says, "And he's definitely someone you should check for."
