The Bay Area emcee explains why he considers himself an innovator of rap music and how he still sees himself an underdog in the game. He also dishes on his new two album project with Too $hort, "E-40 & Too $hort: The History Channel," which will be dropping on the same day.
Last year during the Summer of 2011, DJ I.N.C dropped an original music mixtape , "Tha Incorporated Mixtape Volume 1". The mixtape was successful and garnered much critical acclaim. From the success of Volume one, when the recording of Volume 2 began, the entire process grew legs as the emcees from Volume 1 stayed on board and everyone welcomed new emcees for Volume 2.

Rapper and METAL FACE AKADEMY member MOBONIX readies his newest single “Reset Button” off the forthcoming Fall LP rePROGRAMMING on XIL Recordings. "The record is done mostly, I'm just allowing time for the right co-conspirators to show up," says MOBONIX of the album, which will be accompanied by a comic book series that delves into his origins and exploits.
Villian, Anti-Super Hero, Metal-Faced ATLien. Call him what you want, but either way MOBONIX is one of the Akademy's most promising emcees. After releasing his debut album in 2008 called Third World America, he was featured on DOOM's 2009 Born Like This (on "Supervillainz") record, alongside Posdnous, Kurious and Slug. Earlier this year, he was featured on The Dark Monk’s True Underlord and Last month, he released “Cocaine Diaries” off The Bionic Jazz Project, a side effort he will produce with emcee MarQ Spekt and will feature various beat makers in the Winter of 2012.
Chuuwee’s Crown Me King will serve as the prelude to his long-awaited official solo-debut, Wild Style, which will be released on 5-29-2012 via Amalgam Digital. Whereas Chuuwee’s previous efforts were hybrid sub-genres he created such as “neo-boombap” (neo-soul meets boom-bap) or “hooliganarism” which Chuuwee describes as Treach of Naughty By Nature meets Wakka Flakka Flame, Wild Style can be summarized as pure 90s Hip Hop, where he is taking the classic elements of the golden era with the look, sound and the feel and then applying them to the present day. Inspired by Gang Starr, A Tribe Called Quest, Big L, De La Soul with even hints of DMX, Wild Style promises to be Chuuwee’s break-out project, one that will showcase him as being a frontrunner lyricist from Hip-Hop’s new school; while also paying homage and respect to the great pioneers of the 1990’s. “Wild Style is the album that’s going to eradicate weak rap off the face of the map. It is the return of real Hip-Hop. It’s pure and it’s not me trying to re-make it. It’s not me telling you its 90s Hip-Hop; it is 90s Hip-Hop” says Chuuwee.

I made this remix a while ago and wasn't going to put it out because the song is kind of old and all, but I've been getting such a good response from people at my parties, I figured I'd share it anyway. The song keeps climbing up the charts, so what do I know? Timing is hard to call in this age of the Internet (see: the resurgence of The Wobble).

About Stereo Boyz:
The Stereo Boyz consist of members Mixo (aka Applauze Beetz) and Mic Audio (aka Perfect Hell). Before becoming the super group Stereo Boyz they were a part of the “Rhyme Asylum” (1999 - 2008), a group that claimed a reputation of being one of Detroit's most hardcore underground rap groups. Performing since a young age, the two MCs have created an undeniable stage presence, they master the ceremony, and in countless freestyle competitions the Stereo Boyz have earned the respect of every emcee they came across. Completing a three month tour across Europe in late 2011, with shows in Germany, France and Switzerland the Stereo Boyz have been internationally approved by fans abroad.
With Mixo coming from Detroit and Mic Audio from Chicago they have created a perfect fusion of the Midwest. Combining strong lyrics with catchy hooks, their sound merges the best of both worlds: clever rhymes and beats that any hip hop fan will nod their head or move their feet to.The mixtape “Sound Check Vol 1” was their first group effort and has earned praises from rap fans worldwide, as well as Mic Audios following solo project “Biblical Fearical”. The Stereo Boyz dropped their EP “Live from the Ghettoblaster” on January 22nd 2011 and their highly anticipated debut album “Carz, Clubz & Theatrez” is set to be released in the summer of 2012. Constantly in the studio recording and working on new beats and rhymes the group has several mixtapes from all group members coming out, making it impossible to be slept on.
The Stereo Boyz represent the past, present, & future of Detroit Hip-Hop. Their combination of Detroit Motown and Chicago's House & Electro Pop sound has created a midwest masterpiece. Now it's time to share that masterpiece with the world.
