Video: Barrel Brothers (Skyzoo & Torae) "Triangle Offense" at A3C
Str8OutDaDen: Skyzoo & Torae, better known as the Barrel Brothers gave the A3C crowd in Atlanta a surprise when they brought Sha Stimuli on stage to perform "Triangle Offense" from their Barrel Brothers album.
Trevor: What would Gravity’s Rainbow sound like as a rap album? Here is an album which, if we may, reminds the listener of their whispered allegiances to fundamental realities. The brushstrokes are delicate, stabbing, pointed. The overwhelming crescendo they whirl towards may be one of bitterness, and rightfully so. There is also lightness. A black man is giggling and pointing at you. It may have everything and nothing to do with rap and one’s place in it. Humiliation, no longer a threat—but a reality, has been exhausted. Perfect Hair is what remains.
Ill: First video/single by uMaNg, taken off his long awaited 'The Black Rose Certificate' album (entirely produced by B.B.Z. Darney), available worldwide November 25th (CD/2LP/cassette/digital) on Ill Adrenaline Records.
K-Def & The 45 King Join Forces on 'Back To The Beat'
DM360: Blame it on luck or even the Six Degrees of Separation. When Redefinition Records caught word of K-Def's relationship with The 45 King, two questions emerged, "What is he doing these days and how can we get together for a project?" Once they reconnected, the dedicated New Jersey beatsmith pitched the instrumental collab that is, Back to the Beat; after a number of sessions, we finally have the finished product ready for the masses.
Ms.RC: If you happened to be one of the millions of viewers to tune in to season two of MTV’s high-rated reality show From G’s to Gents, then you can already bear witness to the authenticity of the hard-edged, street-laced rhymes of Alabama raised, Hawaii-based game spitter Teddy Tee aka Dub Duces.
New Movie Trailer & Poster "By The Gun" Debuts Online Starring Slaine, Ben Barnes & Harvey Keitel
"By The Gun" Directed By James Mottern Lands In Theaters December 5th
Millennium Entertainment and Mirabelle Pictures have debuted the new movie trailer and poster for "By The Gun" starring Slaine from La Coka Nostra, Ben Barnes, and Harvey Keitel online at https://screen.yahoo.com/movie-trailers-and-clips/gun-trailer-210810557.html. The film was directed by James Mottern and will land in theaters nationwide on December 5th, 2014.
"It's crazy to have seen this project go from a script my friend Emilio Mauro wrote to getting a small budget together, attaching a stellar cast and now releasing it to the world," commented Slaine. "I've always been a fan of the underdog and the power of the independent artist. This movie was built in that spirit. No frills, no bullshit."
About By The Gun: An homage to Sidney Lumet and the elevated gangster films of the 1970’s, By The Gun takes its cues from "Mean Streets", "Before the Devil Knows Your Dead" and "Drive". It’s a commercial film, classically told with great performances, compelling violence and action, broad appeal and poignant storytelling. But it’s singular, unusual and resonant. The film is about, Nick Tortano is a smooth-talking, ambitious criminal from the streets of Boston. After years spent working for and idolizing the Italian gangsters he finally proves himself to the boss and becomes a made man. However, once inside, Nick conflicts with a moneymaker for the Mafia and begins to drive a wedge between him and the boss.
About Slaine: Boston emcee Slaine recently dropped his new album "The King of Everything Else" and hit the Billboard charts upon release. For years, Slaine has exhaled eloquent and gritty tales through hip-hop, wrestling demons as an acclaimed solo rapper, and among fellow nihilists in the internationally heralded crew La Coka Nostra. "The King of Everything Else" boasts collaborations with Tech N9ne, Madchild, ILL BILL, Bishop Lamont, Vinnie Paz, Reks, Termanology, and more. The cover art for "The King Of Everything Else" was designed by legendary hip-hop artist Skam2.
