To celebrate "Father's Day", Illus releases his brand new video "Daddy Duty".
Family First has solidified Illus reputation as an innovator who goes against the grain and isn't afraid to be himself and represent for grownup Hip-Hop heads and fans who appreciate honest, passionate, lyrics over hardcore beats and production. "Daddy Duty" is a playful, fun, track that celebrates fatherhood and the sacrifices parents make for the love of their children. Illus teams with up and coming producer/emcee Headsnack and the two compliment each other perfectly, reminding us it's ok to smile and appreciate the joys of life, love and family. Keeping it real doesn't always involve guns, drugs, violence and sex, and no one proves that better than Illus.

"From DC to the world, welcome to '40 Dayz & 40 Nights'" is the official slogan and motto from up-n-coming and much talented rapper G'Town Wayne's brand new mixtape. Born and raised in the inner city areas of Washington, DC and Maryland, Randy 'G'Town Wayne' Everett is no stranger to his share of trials and tribulations. Wayne has made a name for himself within the artistic urban and Hip-Hop communities, gaining street credibility by performing locally and returning the love to a city and community that has instilled in him the strength to overcome adversity.
Now 21 years old and displaying a maturity beyond his years, it is clear to see that this young man has truly triumphed and is finally beginning to live his dreams. Despite and in lieu of the many odds that could have possibly forced him to become a statistic, including, being abandoned as an infant by his birth parents, Wayne's poetic rap lyrics give insight to the very soul and core of his motivation and unrelenting desire to achieve an ultimate level of success.
Wayne hopes to deliver a message that gives the entire world insight into the inner workings of the urban DC community and hopefully inspire people from all walks of life to understand and truly believe that success can be achieved no matter what obstacles may arise.
HxH, the duo of Rodney Hazard and Kareem Hawkins, have come together to bring you their latest track entitled, "Moonwalk." "Moonwalk" features Kareem on the production and Rodney on vocals. Rodney uses a double entendre to express his reverence towards the two infamous MJ's - Michael Jordan and Michael Jackson. Spitting lines like, "smoove dude feel like Mike on my feet," Hazard conveys hows he felt when Michael Jackson did the moonwalk and Michael Jordan rocked the cradle. Those two notable moments in pop culture sparked something in Hazard when writing the rhymes to this song.
