After originally being featured on both the iTunes edition and CD of El Da Sensei's Global Takeover 2 as well as The Nu World Remix EP, that was released this past November, the Nu Jeru veteran unfurls the visuals for M-Phazes remix of "2 The Death," originally produced the The Returners. Directed by Darius Waters for ODC TV, the video documents footage taken in the day of the life to the Boom Skwad affiliate, using Newark as its backdrop; from the streets to the lab to the stage. Be sure to watch it all the way through and see if you can pinpoint all the cameos.

West Coast artists Nomis, IAME (of Sandpeople/Oldominion), & Ruslan of theBREAX dropped this fresh remix to Talib Kweli's new single, "Push Thru."  Inspired by the original (which also features Curren$y & Kendrick Lamar), the three emcees decided this would be a perfect platform to further the good fight.

The last (kind of...) in a impromptu series of beat tapes that started in June 2011, "Moar Mistress Jawns" is, at its core, an look at both where I'm at currently creatively and at my future. Inspired by the wave of cassette releases recently, I've split this up into different sides. Tthe first six tracks are built around and on soul samples that have been chopped, screwed, broken and pieced back together. The second half is more electronic based and percussively loose, a nod to the tunes coming from my people overseas and in Cali. Both 'sides' also serve as previews for full-length releases, the first coming in the form of an album called "Cool Story, Pro" that will be released in the fall, and the second coming at a later date. Until then, I hope you enjoy this and the other 5 'Jawn' volumes. Peace.

"The idea behind Jansport Strings is not based on it being literal, but more so in the figurative sense. As a kid in NY, the strings on your Jansport bag were a sign of power and presence. Kids would steal the strings off of each other's bags and burn the tips to prevent getting robbed of them once they got them. The song is a 3 minute auto-bio of me as a kid in Brooklyn and seeing more than my friends and I had bargained for. In essence, my Jansport strings tied it all together, seeing what we all saw and what it made us. The ending is a clip from Video Music Box, the legendary NYC video show run by DJ Ralph McDaniels. This episode in particular was the debut of Chi-Ali's 'Age Ain't Nothin But A Number'. Seeing that video that day on this episode of VMB made me start rhyming. This clip was literally the moment that changed my life." -Skyzoo
