“It was important to me to deliver a steady stream of great music and videos from this release to show fans it’s not about a single song but rather an overall album,” explains Banner.
Inspired by comedian Louie C.K., The 2M1 Movement (2 Million $1) is a mission that David Banner has created in order for fans and consumers of urban music, movies, media and content to gain control and influence on what they consume in this space. Through donating a minimum of $1 to the 2M1 Movement, Banner is going to consistently deliver music, videos, movies and charitable donations to positively influence urban culture. It's for THE PEOPLE, by THE PEOPLE.
“The goal of approaching urban entertainment from this perspective is that it puts the most important people first, that of the fans and the artists who create those mediums (DJ’s, musicians, directors, writers, graphic designers, artists, etc.)”
Fans can log onto weekly to www.davidbanner.com to listen to new music and view videos as well donate to the 2M1 Movement.

“We In New York”, the lead-single from Sadat X’s forthcoming solo-LP, New York, was featured on DJ Premiers Show "Live From Headqcourterz" a few weeks ago and due to the response and feedback, the record is being released ahead of schedule. Sadat X dropped by as a guest on Premier’s show and he gave him a rough version of “We In New York” to play and Premo brought it back for 3 straight weeks. At that point, Sadat expedited the plans for the release, "when you are getting spins and people are asking you for it, you give the people what they want!"
The energy, the sound and vibe of “We In New York” just feels like New York. "Its a real vivid record” says Sadat, and its also the perfect track to spearhead the “New Golden Era” movement, “its not about going back in time, or replicating a certain sound, its about pushing forward and creating something new, its a like minded group of artists and producers that push a certain brand/sound of music. The sound we (Loyalty Digital Corp.) push is definitely influenced by the 90's, but we build and add onto it” says Fokis. We are now living in the new version of the 90's so we say #TheNewGoldenEra. I'm very excited about this single and upcoming album from Sadat X. This is a dream come true for me. To be able to partner up with someone like him and release his project through my Company is amazing. His work ethic is crazy and very inspiring; this is “The New Golden Era” Fokis laments.

Illmaculate is releasing the album's latest single, "Territorial," which calls on the help of guest rapper OnlyOne. "I think the message is conveyed in the title alone," explains Illmaculate. "The song is about all the things I'm territorial of: my family; my neighborhood; my block." This song, along with most of the Skrill Talk, was produced by G_Force and Trox Diesel, and developing such a close working relationship benefited the construction of the track. "I recorded to an unfinished version of the beat, produced by G_Force," notes Illmac, "then Trox blessed the song with all the final touches."
