Prevail from Canadian hip-hop legends Swollen Members has partnered with Vancouver based Red Truck Beer to create a new seasonal beer called 'Prev Ale'. The beer will be sold in select bars across the greater Vancouver area and a portion of the sales will be donated to various local charitable organizations in the community.
"I am extremely pleased to announce the launch of a cross collaborative beer project with The Red Truck Beer Company called, 'Prev Ale'! Together we have decided to work on a seasonal beer in which a portion of the proceeds will go to a charitable cause in our community," commented Prevail. "Compelled by her story, we are helping to raise funds to help cancer patient Chelsea Steyns to help offset some of her expenses. Only three months after giving birth to her second set of twins, Chelsea was diagnosed with brain cancer but has refused to give up the fight. In league with a host of other fund raising efforts, Red Truck and myself humbly offer the 'Prev Ale' as a way to give back and bring our community together in hopes of helping Chelsea and her family this holiday season. In order to reach our fundraising goal, the great guys from Red Truck and myself will be pouring the product at a select number of venues in Vancouver. The money raised from sales and tips will all be put towards helping out Chelsea and her family. We look forward to seeing you and thank you for your support."
We proudly present the visual treatment for "Every 36 Hours." Produced by Shawde Banx, the song has been building steam across the country, being played by DJs who support meaningful music. We'd like to send a special shout out to those folks who care about this music and the messages being transmitted across the airwaves. We sincerely appreciate the support!
In last night's episode, Dee plays the role of "Percy Mackie," a street dude who supposedly has turned his life around but is still hiding his brother from the police. When a NOPD detective comes snooping around, "Percy" has a tense dialogue with the cop... right before bloodying his face up with his fists and fleeing the scene.
At the end of the song you will also hear a preview of Rockie's next song release titled "Nobody".
In addition, Rockie is happy to announce the launch of his limited Electric Highway clothing line, where he will collaborate with different stores across the country for limited drops with each new piece of music from the project. The first offering from this line is from Kanye West manager Don C's Chicago based RSVP Gallery, and is a limited Electric Highway x RSVP Gallery T-Shirt.
In Dee's self-directed new video, "Love Me Some You" tells the tale of a young woman who is vying for Dee's affection, despite already being in a relationship. Unfortunately for the would-be lover, Dee makes it clear that they aren't meant to be and rejects her infidelity by cleverly saying, "If she cheated on her ex with you, now she's next to you/ Then homie, her next ex is you." The song is perfectly paired with the visual story told in the video, culminating with a twist ending.
Arguably the most revered lyricist to ever come out of Philadelphia, Freeway uses his "life-or-death urgency"-tinged voice to show what life is like in the streets and alleys of America's fifth biggest city. Serving as his first official full-length album since teaming up with Jake One for the critically acclaimed 2010 project, The Stimulus Package, Diamond In The Ruff has been years in the making and is Freeway's most illustrious album yet. On the track "Early," Freeway reunited with Just Blaze, marking it their first collaboration since Just helmed the bulk of his 2003 debut Philadelphia Freeway. Freeway recently linked up with Shade 45's Sway in the Morning to debut the track after performing his verse from the track 'What We Do." He also appeared alongside Neef Buck to run through the album's second single "Numbers." The two longtime collaborators trade verses breaking down mathematical calculations over Sunny Dukes' knocking baseline.
With less than two weeks until the November 27th release of Pac Div’s new album, GMB, the LA trio is excited to unveil their latest single “The Return.” Following their Kendrick Lamar and Blu-assisted track “Cross Trainers” last week, the guys are continuing their hometown collaboration trend with this song featuring Los Angeles rapper Ty$. The FADER has also taken a liking to Mibbs, Like, and BeYoung’s “The Return,” and premiered the track online today.
