In an ever-crowded marketplace, Tbless distinguishes himself by leaving behind the self-promoting clichés of most rappers to bring a single that inspires empowerment and optimism in these difficult times. 'Rebirth' is an honest, reflective cut which sees Tbless discuss confronting obstacles from the past, learning from your mistakes and using that constructively to move forward.

Grey is not a color that gets much attention. But that’s not how Diamond District’s gritty lyricist Uptown XO sees it. For the DC spitter, grey represents the convergence of two worlds: dark and light. On the anticipated mixtape The Color Grey, XO continues to combine the street and the conscious in a way that’s honest and relevant to today.

In the early-’90s, Chi-Ali created a buzz for himself as a child rapper rolling with the Native Tongues family. (He was the voice behind the Jeff character on certain De La Soul b-sides.) By the time of the new millennium though, Chi’s name was better associated with an appearance on America’s Most Wanted after he went on the run following the fatal shooting of someone his sister was dating. It was a rise and fall that resonated strongly with another young New Yorker, Skyzoo, who invoked Chi-Ali’s story on his plucky 9th Wonder-produced single “Jansport Strings.”

Now Sky’s pulled off a creative coup by getting Chi-Ali, who was recently released from jail, to rhyme on the remix of “Jansport Strings.” The remix showcases Chi-Ali’s first freedom rap since he was locked up and has him declaring how the track’s “got me feeling myself like it’s a throwback from 9-2,” while Sky tailors his own lyrics to welcome home his new guest. MTVHive caught up with Skyzoo to learn how the “Jansport Strings” remix went down.

In late spring, SL Jones released Paraphernalia, his collaborative mixtape with DJ Burn One, and with that project, the Little Rock rapper and Atlanta producer solidified themselves as two of the most promising young artists around. Since release, SL and Burn One have brought their music on the road while also releasing a string of new videos from the project, and now, as each of them plans a variety of new projects, the two are giving fans one last treat from Paraphernalia, a remix for the fan-favorite "T.H.C." The remix features ST 2 Lettaz (formerly of G-Side), Scotty, and Deniro Farrar.

The original version of "T.H.C." offered fans an at-times-defiant, at-times-melancholic breakdown on what it means to hustle, and while the beat and SL's crooned hook remain the same, the track is full of new verses, kicked off with a fresh take from SL, as he breaks down his cyclical, familial relationship with hustling. "Feds got me on them papers, call it federal vacation/ Uncle taught me how to hustle, call it special education," raps SL. "Cousins taught me how to bang, that's a family demonstration/ Then I taught my little brother, he's another bad creation."

"The original version of the song was inspired by the hustle, so I didn't wanna stray away from that with the remix," explains SL, noting that, because each of the four rappers come from different backgrounds, each was able to offer a unique and varied take on the subject and the severities that can come with it. "It's so easy to get lost in the struggle because it only takes one mistake – one wrong move – and your freedom or life can be taken away from you," says Jones. "The reality of it all is that the odds don't matter until it's too late, so you play the game 'til it catches up with you."

Spree Wilson is back with a brand new, 3-song concept project, called Life In Technicolor - due out October 25th - and today we get a first glimpse. "Right One|Wrong Time" is produced by Jeron Ward of The Flush, and is a vintage throwback to ATL Bass music circa 94-96. Spree and Jeron channeled some of the dope artists of that time for the project (i.e Kilo Ali, KP & Envy, So So Def Bass All Stars, etc.) creating something extremely fresh and yet nostalgic at the same time.
