While Planet Asia has enjoyed an extensive career dating back to the late 90s, Killer Ben and Tristate are newer artists. Fortunately, the latter two are no less capable of rocking the mic, and both get a certified stamp of approval from Alchemist. "Tristate is a professional wizard," he says. "Killer Ben is a rare combination of a certified larynx surgeon and a schoolyard bully."
Joining the three co-stars is a star-studded lineup of guests, including Prodigy, Evidence, Phil The Agony, Chace Infinite, and more. Expect head-nodding hip-hop and, in Alchemist's words, "stretchable polyester rhythms."
Here is the newest release from Project Pat hosted by DJ Scream called "Cheez N Dope" which has the internet going crazy. This mixtape is loaded with all new exclusive music for the streets, clubs and radios. Download it now and spread it to everybody you know. Watch the videos below as well from the mixtape!
The song, which falls well in line with some of the darker material that A-Wax has been releasing of late, pulls its inspiration from, as A-Wax says, "the old 'bigger they are...' adage. I never liked bullies, and that's partially why I started gangbanging – to back the bullies up." And throughout the track he drives that concept home with lines like "...Talking shit, but I ain't about to box/ I could see why they want me in a box/ They've been lifting weights; I'm all out of shape/ That's okay; there's a pistol on my waist."
DPress of the Stereo Crew drops a warm up to his upcoming, first Solo EP "The Lions Den", droppin' June 07th. Although the track "JuiceBox Bulletcases" has existed for a minute, it is still a perfect introduction of this young MC out of Southwest, Detroit. A recent addition to the Stereo Boyz' Stereo Crew, he has become a part of the Detroit Hip Hop scene, through Emceeing in the legendary Monkey Barz ciphers, producing and being an active member of the Southwest community.
Money Mars just dropped a video for the spooky yet enlightening "Dreaming of Dubs", the first from his sophomore effort "Destined To Reign" which was hosted by DJ Skullator of Juelz Santana's Skull Gang and produced almost exclusively by DJ Grumble and Kid Vision. It was shot on location in Ithaca, New York. We would love if you could post this.

A project dedicated to the late great J.Dilla. Not just any mixtape, but a project that would be an actual album with real concepts and ideas set the the backdrop of one of the greatest producers of all time. The Herman Gardens Project was the outcome. During the process of making the album D.Focis says "I fell in love with music all over again because of Dilla, and this is my way of saying thank you to him."
