Video: Illus f/ Blueprint - "Extraordinary"

2012 promises to be a memorable year for Illus, as he and his wife recently welcomed the birth of their first child and his new project, Family First, (due to be released on 5-29-2012) focuses on the shared love of that experience to create 12-tracks that mend meaningful, powerful, heart-felt lyrics to hardcore Hip-Hop production. Family First is a celebration of family and life both in the literal sense and that of the larger global Hip-Hop community and the connection we all have through our children and the spirit, heart, passion and soul of the culture.

After unveiling the first leak, Magical,” which featured J-Live (he also produced the track) from Family First earlier this week, today Illus releases the trailer for his collaboration with Rhymesayers own Blueprint “Extraordinary” (Blueprint also produced the track as well).

Lil Boosie Found Not Guilty in Murder Trial


From RollingStone.com:

boosie

Rapper Lil Boosie has been found not guilty of murder, WAFB reports. Boosie, whose real name is Torrence Hatch, was cleared of charges of first-degree murder in the 2009 death of Terry Boyd after a jury deliberated over the case for nearly two hours.


The prosecution had argued that the killing was a murder-for-hire ordered by the rapper and executed by his henchman, 17-year-old Michael "Marlo Mike" Louding. Lil Boosie's defense countered that there was no evidence to suggest that the rapper had beef with Boyd and that detectives had trumped up the charges to benefit their police department.

Lil Boosie's trial concluded around 2:44 p.m. today after six days of testimony from 27 witnesses. Though the rapper is off the hook for this charge, he is currently serving an eight-year prison term on drug charges and is being held in the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola.

PR: Boston Emcee Dagha & Project Tree Announce Two-Song Single


From Jerry Graham:

PR: Boston Emcee Dagha & Project Tree Announce Two-Song Single

May 2012 (Boston, MA)-One of Beantown’s most consistent emcees, Dagha has announced the release of a two-song single with Project Tree on May 11th. Though they have performed together numerous times in the past few years, the two songs (Let It Go and Mama Africa) mark the first time the emcee and the live band have released material together. Composed of guitar, bass, keyboards, percussion and at times backing vocalists and acoustic instruments, Project Tree bring a roots reggae and R&B sensibility to Dagha’s conscious but fierce lyrics. The live pairing has performed alongside such notables as Insight, Moe Pope, Ayanna Pressley, Colonel McGovern, Lisa Bellow, Big Drift, Edan, Mr. Lif and Euloge of Benin.

The two songs will be part of the full-length album “Complex Simplicitree" that Dagha and Project Tree are preparing for a fall 2012 release. Known for his deep timbred voice and funky flow, Dagha’s vocals has graced tracks with the likes of his Boston brethren, Mr Lif, Insight, Al-J and EDO.G. Many fans know him for his classic appearance on long time comrade Edan’s “Beauty And The Beat” album (2005). Appearing on the track “Rock And Roll” Dagha also was featured heavily in Edan’s live show for several years after, constantly touring the world including the U.S., Europe and Japan.

A leading proponent of “grown man rap” Dagha bared his soul to classic sounding east coast boom bap on his last full-length album 2008’s The Divorce (Lewis Recordings). That album lyrically captured his tumultuous marriage and the dissolution of that union while not holding back on the real life decisions and mistakes he’s made. In 2010 Dagha also dropped an EP for Noise Is The Trigger, his project with New York beatmaker Psych Major which had appearances from Smoothe Da Hustler, Lil Dap and Al-J.

Backing up his lyrics, Dagha has been able to use his rhyme skills to empower urban youth becoming the Education Director for Boston of national non-profit organization, America Scores. In this position Dagha implements poetry and rhyme-writing curriculum to 10 Boston area public middle schools and trains instructors to fill this role at each school. Dagha and some of his students were featured on CNN as well as being recognized by President Obama for their achievements working with young people.
