Download: L Pro - "Equilibrium"


From ISLH:

Download: L Pro - "Equilibrium"

The EP:

"Equilibrium, the new EP from Portland emcee LeMont Boyd (AKA L Pro) and native producer 5th Sequence, is a tasty sample of what to expect from their upcoming full-length Vertigo.

Older heads may remember L Pro as L Profound, his teenage pseudonym as a member of the duo Grassrootz, along with beatmaker D-Wyze. Their 1998 debut, Uncharted Regions, garnered positive national attention, yet they soon disbanded due to D-Wyze relocating to California. Meanwhile Boyd's subsequent setbacks—including a divorce and being stabbed in the face—kept him away from music for some time.

His collaboration with Soul Plasma on 2003's Simply Soul marked a determined return to form that has continued ever since. If Equilibrium is any indication, L Pro and 5th Sequence are primed to resurrect the template of Pete Rock and CL Smooth, combining thought-provoking lyrics over jazzy samples and raw head-nod beats." - Portland Mercury Press

DJ JS-1, Lil Fame, Joell Ortiz, Freddie Foxxx: "Reppin' NY"


From Audible Treats:

MP3 - DJ JS-1, Lil Fame, Joell Ortiz, Freddie Foxxx: "Reppin' NY"

The current state of hip-hop in NYC is "corny," according to Queens, New York native DJ JS-1 – and he's here to rectify the situation. With the help of fellow New York MCs Lil Fame of M.O.P., Joell Ortiz of Slaughterhouse and Freddie Foxxx (aka Bumpy Knuckles), JS-1 is excited to release "Reppin' NY," the new street single from his upcoming album, No One Cares, which will be released June 21st on Fat Beats Records. "It's been sad watching New York artists trying desperately to make 'down-south' music, using corny beats and biting slang," says JS-1. "So while no New York DJs are even making albums, let alone New York hip-hop, we decided to let everyone know, 'we're the realest right now reppin' NY.'"

JS-1 keeps it classic with an authentic, bass-tastic, scratch-heavy, take-no-prisoners production on "Reppin' NY." Add three of the most desirable MCs in the game, and you get a song that would make any loyalist proud. "Working with Freddie Foxxx and Lil Fame for the first time was such a treat. I have always loved, felt, and spun their music from day one," says JS-1, who called up legendary DJ Premier to connect him with those MCs. "Joell is really dope and the 'the new hope' for NY artists still doing hardcore music," he adds. "To work with all three of them and get them on the same song, especially in these days and times – it's an honor." JS-1 wants "Reppin' NY" to be an impetus for NY artists to step up their game, and a cease and desist order for imitation MCs. "It's cute to follow trends and make songs trying to fit in the current radio format, but we don't do that shit," says JS. "You don't have to make crap to do well."

DJ JS-1's No One Cares will be available for purchase on June 21st on Fat Beats Records.

PR: Eldorado Red Joins OGPR; Readies Summer Drop


From Nancy B:

PR: Eldorado Red Joins OGPR; Readies Summer Drop

Montgomery, AL ~ What do you get when you mix 2 parts New York lyricism and hustler mentality with a healthy shot of southern swag? Eldorado Red; a Harlem-raised, Alabama transplant whose been making quite a noise on the street music scene for the past several years. With a string of mixtapes to his credit and hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube for his numerous videos, Rado is readying his next offering, "Jeffe Music - The G5 Edition" for a summer release. Hosted by esteemed Atlanta radio personality, Greg Street, and with assistance from his popular radio single, "Fresh Cut ft. Rich Boy" expectations are "Jeffe Music" will be Rado's biggest release yet.

Rado's influences are not hard to miss. His delivery speaks to his childhood years in Harlem, growing up on that city's 80's rap legends, while his content is evidence of the effect that both the streets of New York and those of Montgomery, Alabama; where his parents sent him as a teen in an attempt to keep him out of the trouble he was so drawn to, have had on his life. The results are not pretty, either visually or sonically. And that's the point. As Rado will tell you, "My music is the backdrop to the pain, trials and tribulations of life as I know it. It's undiluted. Unadulterated. This is my theme music."

Stay tuned for more content and release date info.
