Last year's Kickstarter campaign was amazing. I'm doing another (much smaller) one this year.

LA emcee Radioinactive was part of Log Cabin, the '90s crew that included a young Murs and Eligh. Rolling Stone and URB co-signed him soon after he rapped as a goat on "Farmer's Market Of The Beast" from producer Omid's 1998 compilation Beneath The Surface, also featuring Dilated Peoples and Freestyle Fellowship. He dropped the solo albums Pyramidi, Free Kamal and Soundtrack To A Book. He collaborated with his crew Shape Shifters on Shape Shifters Was Here, and Daedelus and Busdriver on The Weather. Now, fresh back from three months traveling the Sahara Desert with a band of Tuaregs, he dons one of Quincy Jones' old suits in the Tucker Capps-directed music video for "Mint Tea."
Free DL: Vic Freeze x Madd Caesar - "Oakland, Ohio"

8 airplane flights, countless hours, and several power naps later, "Oakland,Ohio" was born. Ohio native, Vic Freeze teams up with Northern California beat makers Madd Caesar to bring you a glimpse into their world. The album features guest appearances from Paulie Rhyme, Solis Cin, Satellite High, Cyph4, Purple Team, and Rey Resurrecion.
So how was Vic Freeze born? The beat machine had the same 4- bar loop playing in the small Ohio dorm room. The mic was hung down from the ceiling like a punching bag. For hours, he and his college roommate, Paul Richardson aka Paulie Rhyme, would work on their craft to hone the art of songwriting, rhyming and performing. As a result, after some dedication and hard work, Vic Freeze has shared the same stage with legends such as: Krs-One, Big Daddy Kane, Del, Wu-Tang, and Talib Kweli.From early on gaining respect on Cleveland mixtapes, performances at underground clubs, and local airplay, the sky is the limit for this genuine hip-hop artist. In late 2005, Vic put together a collection of material called Watch For Ice on The Bridge Vol.1. The unique but polished sound garnered knock and respect in the streets, selling copies out of his trunk. After touring with The Green Giants Tour in early 2008, Vic recorded the single "Now” featured on DJ Green Lantern's MySpace Invasion Mixtape series. His first national mixtape, it showed that not only hip hop heads but mainstream music appreciated his sincerity and feeling behind his songs. In 2010, after returning to the road on The Jose Mateo Tour with Paulie Rhyme and Rey Resurrecion, he is proving he is ready to turn the corner. In early 2011 he will release his first LP "The Reluctant Star" on Browntown Wreckords. Vic Freeze is a potent emcee with a fresh flow who brings the streets and the world together over rugged hip-hop tracks. A pure lyricist who emits positivity through trial and tribulation but touches everyone with honesty and his “live before you speak” attitude.
