Emcee GQ Nothin Pretty has dropped a new video / single for “Childhood Change” (video and purchase link below). The track features a melodic hook by Army Of The Pharaohs, Block McCloud and production by Sweden’s Viktor Ax. The video (Directed by Joshua Ramirez for Jack Nine Films) is set in the biggest locales in GQ’s life, The Bronx and Allentown, PA where he grew up. The three verses of the track deal with three major events in his life that the emcee would change if he could. Astute viewers will notice cameos from such GQ comrades as King Magnetic (Army Of The Pharaohs), Cappadonna (Wu-Tang Clan) and more.

Touring with Killer Mike & The GZA/Still Dreamin 8

Welcome to another increasingly infrequent e-mail blast. I wanted to drop off my brand new soul tape before I left for tour. Oh, and tell you about tour.

Fresh off the unreal experience that was the Into the Wild Tour, tomorrow I leave for Victoria, British Columbia to play the Rifflandia festival with Killer Mike, before we start the 64 Squares tour with The GZA on Saturday in Toronto. We'll be on the road for about five weeks, ending 10/20 in Philadelpha. I'll be DJing for both Mike AND the GZA, so it will be an amazing time. (And super exhausting.) It's been a good summer for this rap fan. If we'll be in your area, come on here for dates & cities. .

One can’t listen to Hip-Hop all the time. No matter how big a rap fan you are, you need a break here and there to balance the intensity and aggression Hip-Hop provides. As a break from the beats and rhymes, I present to you Still Dreamin 8, which continues the vibe set by volume 7 and features smooth feel-good tunes old and new from folks like Dam-Funk, HouseShoes, Electric Wire Hustle, BJ The Chicago Kid and more. If you check this smooth shit out and still end up ready to scrap, you were a lost cause to begin with.

Thanks for your support, and for taking a minute to read this. Nothing is more precious than time, I appreciate yours.
