For these playboys used to getting whatever they want when they want it - all that’s about to change. But in this game of who’s playing who, some discover that revenge has a price all its own.

Like life, Rap Heals All Wounds, is filled with highs and lows, club anthems like “Watch Yo Chick”, produced by Deraj aka Teddy Bear ATL featuring Young Chu which recently received mix-show spins on New York HOT 97, head bangas like the “Rap Marathon” produced by Busch and very personal songs like “Lonely”. “Lonely takes you through the different stages of my life growing up. I talk about my mother’s struggle to feed, clothe, and raise 8 children on her own. My pops was in and out of prison and when he was out, he wasn’t really around. My mom was the glue that held us together and when she died, it tore our family apart,” he shares. It’s ironic that H2 could ever be lonely growing up with so many siblings, but he explains, “I grew up in a large household, but I still was a lonely child. I felt lost like I really had no one, so I got caught up in things that I shouldn’t have trying to survive.”
Here's a new track/video from Chicago rapper Fess Grandiose produced by Netherfriends. The video features Philip Seymour Hoffman, Betty Boop, and enough psychedelic effects to make you hallucinate (as long as you're smoking that good shit).
Sho Baraka releases "Ali" the first single from his upcoming album "Talented Xth" releasing via Lions and Liars on Tuesday January 15th, 2013. "This song is a call for people to excel in whatever field, arena or profession that you've been placed in. Many times we handicap ourselves with excuses, laziness or fear. Greatness is not something to obtain for our own benefit but its for the benefit of others." - Sho Baraka
