Boston rapper Slaine, of the rap super group La Coka Nostra, has released his new video for the track "Borrowed Time" online at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1ZmWolwqlw . The track is the newest single from Slaine’s new solo album, "A World With No Skies 2.0", which landed in stores this week courtesy of Suburban Noize Records, and online at http://itun.es/ig43j4 .
"I've been trying to take my videos to a higher level and have them be more like short films. The song ‘Borrowed Time’ is definitely in that vein and director Los Silva captured that perfectly," commented Slaine. "With the video we aimed to give it a surreal dream like quality, and give it kind of a sentimental lonely feel. This track is definitely different than anything else on the record, but the song is an honest portrayal of a real life situation, which is why I decided to shoot a video for it."
Slaine is currently streaming "A World With No Skies 2.0" online in its entirety at AOL Music at http://music.aol.ca/new-releases-full-cds/#/7 . To execute his dark musical vision on his new solo album, Slaine enlisted the help of his La Coka Nostra brothers Everlast and ILL BILL, and Cypress Hill’s B-Real to create a dark hip-hop album that hits squarely in the jaw.

WAKE UP is the new single by London based singer/songwriter CHROME. Best known for his vocal contributions to two UK number 1 records with Dizzee Rascal (Holiday and Dance Wiv Me) Chrome sets out on his own with this genre blurring smash.
Produced by LP and JC (Devlin, Aggro Santos, Pixie Lott, StreetDance 3D) the track draws on the roots of both producers – JC started producing Drum n Bass records when he was 12 and by 14 was working with the legendary MCs Det and Skibadee whilst LP is a classically trained musician/composer turned urban and pop producer. Between them they have crafted an uplifting and energetic track beautifully complimented by Chrome's thoughtful melodic prose and infectious chorus. It's a feel-good conscious record with club sensibilities sure to be setting the airwaves and dance floors alight this summer.
Tyrone Emmanuel Paul, best known as CHROME, is a young free spirit who has turned his energies to singing and song writing in the last few years. Recently described by one record label exec as an edgier Taio Cruz with the vocal presence of John Legend, Chrome has collaborated with Dizzee Rascal on his first and third UK number 1 records and helped him become the pop megastar he is today.
Alongside the original is a killer remix package that includes a DnB remix by Digital Soundboy's Benny Page, a Dubstep mix by hotly tipped up-and-comers Stinkahbell and a Moombahton mix by Girls Music's (Toddla T's record label) David Heartbreak.
Here is Snow Tha Product's Unorthodox 0.5, hosted by internationally renowned personality DJ Whoo Kid! This is the prelude to her full-length all-original mixtape Unorthodox, which will be available on iTunes August 30, 2011 via Snow's own Product Entertainment and Street Science Entertainment.
Filled with production from the likes of SuperStar O (Jim Jones, Waka Flocka, Wiz Khalifa), Florida beatmaker RedHook Noodles, Hannibal Hector of California duo The Nominees, Texas multi-talent Essay Potna, Keise on da Track (Lil Boosie) and more, Unorthodox is laced with Snow's electrifyingly aggressive verbal acrobatics. She's a beauty and a beast - looks and lyrical skills on the microphone, respectively.
Born to illegal immigrants, Snow tha Product grew up in San Jose, California, and currently resides in Ft. Worth, Texas. In just two years, Snow became an underground phenomenon and instant YouTube sensation.
With no formal promotion, Snow's video for "Drunk Love" is over 614k hits on YouTube, and is in full power play on the national Mun2 network's 18 & Over. Her thematic "Woke Wednesday" is nearing a quarter million views, and her latest viral videos "Beast Mode" and "Holy Sh*t" have caused quite a stir this Summer, racking up over 147k and 149k views respectively thus far.

PR: Macklemore & Ryan Release New Single, "Can't Hold Us"

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis just may have a hit on their hands.
Fresh off the release of the stunning music video for "WINGS", Macklemore & producer Ryan Lewis are back with an energetic new single titled "Can't Hold Us". Already a live hallmark for the duo, "Can't Hold Us" features hard-driving kicks, a quick flow, and larger than life instrumentation. Urgent lyrics meld with driving percussion and anthemic horns, creating a raucous summer-time anthem. The song is perfectly timed with the duo hitting the summer festival circuit, including Outside Lands, Rock the Bells, Bumbershoot, and MusicFest NW.
Macklemore, whose recent work has highlighted story telling, takes "Can't Hold Us" in a different direction, with the focus shifted to mood and delivery. While showcasing his diversity as an MC, Macklemore dives in and out of topics, from his thoughts on record labels, to his suit game, which he says rivals that of Bob Barker's.
"Can I kick it, thank you, I'm so damn grateful/I grew up really wanting gold fronts, but that's what you get when Wu-Tang raised you"
"Can't Hold Us" also marks the debut of Seattle vocalist Ray Dalton, whose silky vocals can be found on the songs chorus. Dalton, whose background is in gospel choir, recently performed the song with Macklemore & Lewis on both NPR and KEXP.
