Today, Hayze is releasing a brand new single from the tape, "Life Is Hell," which features Apathy and serves as a perfect introduction for the hardened, quick-witted lyricism that caught Apathy's attention when he first heard Hayze rap less than a year ago. "He sounded mad different from anything I was hearing," recalls Apathy. "Most fans would probably expect me to champion someone who has a similar sound as Demigodz, or Army of the Pharaohs, but that's exactly the opposite of what I heard from him and what I dug about his music."
The second track from Nametag and Nameless for the #TGIF or #TGIForNamesake series that has been transpiring throughout February. Look for the upcoming Nametag & Nameless 'For Namesake' album dropping 4-16-2013 on Brick Records.
London based collective Kings Of The City release brand new track ‘Please Tell Me’, recently premiered world-wide as a future hit on Radio 1 by Zane Lowe. As a band they exist in the badlands between Blues, Rock and Hip Hop somewhere in the midst of Jake Bugg, Plan B, Oasis and Wretch 32.
Please Tell Me is a track influenced by Classic Rock and Hip Hop with a Blues laden riff making it simultaneously dark and powerful. The chorus is sung with passionate desperation complimented by the gripping raps over smooth and swaying guitars.
