Straight out of Barbados, here is NexCyx with the video for the title track from their 2011 Queen EP!

The five-member band is led by multi-faceted songwriter/entertainer Mahalia, who entices with her singing and lyrics in a way reminiscent of the great Lauryn Hill.
Yep, I said it!

From Baige:

How do you take your Crackers, Young America?   I like mine with a little bit of F#cking cheese!  Check out Baige O'Bannon flip over The Throne as he takes on the MILF population overseas with the penultimate, expletive laden fire-bomb for your pallet, "Crackers in Paris."

"F*@!, F*@!, F*@!, B!tch, B!tch, B!tch!"

"Excuse my French" just took on a whole new meaning!!

Myka 9 is a founding member of one of the West Coast's most-influential and creative groups, Freestyle Fellowship, (which also includes Aceyalone, P.E.A.C.E., Self Jupiter and J Sumbi) and the group is still a very instrumental figure in the LA Hip-Hop community.  Known for his rapid cadences and incorporating singing into his melodic jazz infused sound, Myka is one of the West Coast's most stylistically advanced rappers and he has had an indelible impact on the underground hip-hop scene; Myka even ghost wrote two tracks on N.W.A.'s 1987 debut album N.W.A. And The Posse) and freestyling as an art form.

Myka's imprints on Freestyle Fellowship and the artists they would later influence is evident as Myka's "7th Seal” from Freestyle Fellowship's debut, To Whom It May Concern, (1991) has been dissected and combed over by fans, artists and critics alike for years in an attempt to crack the code and help shaped the next generation of West Coast emcees and sound that would emerge shortly thereafter (Hieroglyphics, The Pharcyde etc). Released in 1993, Freestyle Fellowship's second LP, Innercity Griots, is a landmark of LA Hip-Hop  and genuinely considered one of the best Hip-Hop LP's of the 90's; and the group's videos for "Inner City Boundaries" and "Hot Potato" from Innercity Griots took their sound and movement worldwide.

Though Freestyle Fellowship has been on a decade long-hiatus (primarily due to the four- year incarceration of Self Jupiter) the Fellowship have reunited and will be releasing a new LP, The Promise, on Decon Records this fall.

Yet, before the Freestyle Fellowship reunion project surfaces, Myka 9 will release his fifth solo-LP, Mykology, on 10-3-2011 and it's full of the meticulous and intelligent rhymes that Myka has become so revered for.  Mykology's lead-single, "I Must Cross," finds Myka poignantly dissecting the often-debated immigration crisis from a human rights perspective.

The Artwork for Mykology was created by Mear One, a Los Angeles-based artist, commonly known as the 'Michelangelo' of graffiti.  As a graphic designer, Mear One has designed apparel for Conart, Kaotic, as well as his own Reform brand. Mear One has done album covers for artists like Non Phixion, Freestyle Fellowship, Alien Nation, Limp Bizkit, Busdriver and Daddy Kev. In 2004, Mear One joined artists Shepard Fairey and Robbie Conal to create a series of "anti-war, anti-Bush" posters for a street art campaign called "Be the Revolution" for the art collective Post Gen.

With "I'm On Her" Quan is back at it again, but this time he flips Drake, Rozay and Weezy's "I'm On One" for a candid ode (fellas take notes) to beautiful women and their beautiful bodies, once again displaying his versatility and ability to rap, sing and harmonize (don't forget Quan was one of the first artists to exhibit these traits before it was in vogue). Quan's Glorious Struggle will be released in November 2011.

Bon Appétit!

London's monthly real Hip-Hop party is back!

Having originally launched at Bar Rumba in July 2008 before moving to Plan B for 2 years The Doctor's Orders is now setting up shop at their favourite East London night spot East Village guaranteeing it continues to be one of the most exciting & popular parties in the capital.

As the basis of any great party is the resident DJs we have switched things up here too with Spin Doctor hand picking a DJ dream team to help him rip the roof off every month. First up is your favourite DJs favourite DJ the one and only Mr Thing who never fails to set the party on fire. Doing justice to the super hero connotations to his name is the brilliant Bruce Wayne who is one of the most exciting DJs out there right now. Completing this incredible line up of residents is the one and only Chris P Cuts who since becoming a regular with The Doctor's Orders has been quickly making a name for himself with sets as diverse as they are floor-filling.

On the night we are not only celebrating the re-launch of this great monthly party but also marking Chris P Cuts birthday and hosting the official launch party for the UK's biggest annual Hip-Hop event The World B-Boy Championships Final. With that in mind we will also be joined on the decks by some very special guests from the legendary Rock Steady Crew giving you just one more reason to be no where else on Friday 14th October 2011!

"Its 5 O'clock in the morning"...ok maybe it isn't, but it is somewhere, and by somewhere I mean smack dab on T-Pain's new single "5 O'clock" featuring the super unique combination of the incomparable Lily Allen & the most high Wiz Khalifa. The Erik White & T-Pain directed music video was shot recently in Amsterdam in the red light district and will be released later in September.
