Brooklyn lyricist Stixx is enjoying life in his new visual for "Video Games" - but too bad his leading lady doesn't see things the same way! If you've ever gotten caught up playing games (even metaphorically), this could be YOU!
Closing out the year with what can only be described as their most ambitious project to date, Hip-Hop Duo NEFEW are unleashing the second installment of their ANTIHERO free album series on November 8th. Utilizing their creativity beyond the confines of the studio with impressive visuals, eclectic marketing tools and a bespoke T-Shirt line, Polemikk and PA-Double promise to deliver to their ever-expanding fan base an album many would be happy to pay for.

“The Process” is a web-series that zeros in on the various methods artists use to reach a creative means. From writing, rhyming, how a beat is produced, to how they actually record-- everyone has a process! Episode Two of “The Process” sheds some light on Torae’s process, as he writes and records his verse to Nina B’s “No Regrets” from her recently released mixtape “Titles Are Played Out!.”
