The Legendary Hiero Crew Releases New Single In Conjunction With W.A.I.L. Collaboration
Bay-Area super group Hieroglyphics are back in a big way, releasing a new song "Reputation" in conjunction with a series of paintings inspired by the group from When Art Imitates Life (W.A.I.L.) - Hiero served as the guiding creative force behind the Hieroglyphics Legacy and Monument Series paintings. From music to art to clothing collaborations, and more, the legendary Hiero crew has certainly earned quite a "Reputation," and the aptly named song celebrates the Hiero legacy. This no-frills track is all about the flow; synthy guitar riffs and bare bones beats leave the listener free to focus on the killer verses - these seasoned veterans need no embellishment. "Sorry that we kept you waiting... sort of like a test of patience/had to come up with the best arrangement," A-Plus tells fans, who definitely won't hold the group's absence against them with a new track out and their upcoming West Coast tour to look forward to.
Founded in 1997 in Oakland, CA, Hiero Imperium Records is Del The Funky Homosapien, Casual, Pep Love, Domino, and the Souls of Mischief, made up of A-Plus, Opio, Phesto and Tajai. Coming off waves of success from earlier releases like Souls' '93 Til Infinity, the Hiero crew had already established themselves as a name in mainstream and underground hip-hop, and soon released their first collective project Third Eye Vision. Since then the Hiero team has been thriving in the hip-hop world, releasing a number of projects within the label as well as branching out for collaborations with the likes of Jurassic 5, George Clinton, Dilated Peoples, Q-Tip, Xzibit and Gorillaz.
Houston's Lil O Announced Spring Drop of New Album
Every city has its legends. Those artists that outlast the fads, weather the trends and throughout, deliver music that is hungrily devoured by their fans. Lil O is one of those guys.
Lil O's career began with a single featuring a then up-and-coming Destiny's Child, "Can't Stop" which he dropped off at the studio of the legendary DJ Screw. Impressed with what he heard, Screw invited Lil O back to the lab just hours after the single had been dropped off. Later, as a member of the infamous Screwed Up Click, O would go on to wreck Screw tapes alongside the rest of Houston's finest game spitters, all the while establishing himself as one of the city's most consistent hitmakers.
Since then there have been classic albums like "Blood Money", "Fat Rat Wit Da Cheese" and "Food On Tha Table", a slew of mixtapes ranking among Houston's best and a few major label situations that simply didn't serve O's best interest. Over a decade later, Lil O is still standing, still recording and still delivering hits that satisfy both his immense street following and the demands of PD's everywhere.
Next up for Lil O is "Grind Hard, Pray Harder" which he will drop on his own label, Bar None Entertainment this Spring. It's lead single, "None Of Ya Bizzness" featuring Slim Thug, is a musical warning shot to nosey people; friends and foes alike. The streets love it and it's beginning to pick up steam at radio around the Southwest. The song is also available via iTunes.
Fans unable to wait for the album can download its precursor, "The Flood 1.5" mixtape Lil O dropped recently as a warm-up. The already-classic tape is available for free download via http://tweetmysong.com/584w1z .
