PR: 87 Stick Up Kids to Digitally Release "Car Keys & Rabbit's Feet" on May 3rd

From Shaker Maker PR:






LOS ANGELES, April 14, 2011 - LA-based party rappers The 87 Stick Up Kids have teamed up with white hot lifestyle brand Mishka NYC to release their debut LP, Car Keys & Rabbit's Feet, on Tuesday, May 3. Originally scheduled for self release earlier this month, Mishka, who are responsible for releasing Das Racist's acclaimed mixtape, Sit Down, Man, last year, as well as releases by Ninjasonik, The Death Set and Hussle Club, are now set to digitally release the 12-track full length through their site and Bandcamp. "I loved the album from the first moment I put it on and wanted to be apart of if," says Mishka co-founder and creative director Mikhail Bortnik. "We've been releasing mixes for a long while and started dabbling in 7-inches and full lengths this year when it became apparent we could be just as viable as a record label these days. We have a huge audience, one that we not only think will eat The 87 Stick Up Kids up, but one who we really want to expose to the group." "We're hyped to be included in the roster of up and coming music that Mishka clearly stays down for," says DJ Rockwell. "It should be clear to everyone by now that they are on to something and we're honored to be a part of that." 

Breaker Breaker

To coincide with the album announcement, Mishka is premiering the group's video for "Breaker Breaker" on their blog today at


Filmed in New York while the Stick Up Kids were in the city for CMJ last fall, the clip for "Breaker Breaker," directed by Justin DuBose, matches the songs '80s inspired 808 beats with gritty black and white footage of 87 MC's Nashville and Deacon Trillionaire rapping in the subway. As the chorus kicks in, the video flips to color and DJ Rockwell and Squish join their brothers in arms and the troupe show us late night NYC through their bleary eyes. The video follows the group's Public Enemy-inspired video for "Lights Camera" that was premiered by URB in January. 


In addition to releasing the album with Mishka, The 87 Stick Up Kids have partnered with Scion A/V for a limited edition USB rabbit's foot keychain version of the record. The 500-piece LP-themed item, which will be sold at shows, on 87's site, Mishka's stores in NY, LA and Tokyo, as well as select retailers, will feature the album along with several bonus songs, unreleased tracks, videos and the Mishka lookbook featuring the group. Following this, Scion A/V will release The Stick Up Kids' video for "All The Girls" as part of the next round of videos they are putting out in July, which will also include Black Lips, Big Freedia and Rob Roy. 


The result of nearly three years of honing their sound, Car Keys & Rabbit's Feet, deftly showcases the foursome's impressive range of styles while paying homage to their far-reaching influences from hip-hop's yesteryear and today. Featuring Amanda Blank, Diz Gibran, Micah James and Jamz F Kennedy of Widows/Brother Reade with production by Ro Blvd, Tate La Rock, Troublemaker, Rah Groove and Thee Mike B, the album is a melange of high-energy, party-starting anthems, clever, tongue-twisting rhymes and colorfully-produced headbangers. 


The 87s have created a portal to a Los Angeles that sits outside of the realm more privy to Midwest tourists. Their Out 4 Fame EP defined their party-rap philosophy and gave way for a grassroots campaign, building them a die-hard hometown following. Whether rocking a crowd of college students or crushing it for true hip-hop heads, they have proven their widespread appeal, sharing the stage with a multitude of en vogue rap and rock outfits including Spank Rock, Flying Lotus, Diplo, Kool Keith, Ninjasonik, Cool Kids, NASA, UNI, PacDiv, J*Davey, Shiny Toy Guns, Kid Sister, Far East Movement, Dizzee Rascal, Mickey Factz, Freddie Gibbs and many more across the spectrum. This year they have shared the stage with Yelawolf, Das Racist, Theophilus London and the Get Busy Committee. Next up, they will perform alongside Mad Rad at the Central Social Aid and Pleasure Club in Santa Monica, Calif. next Friday, April 22.

MP3: Jerry B. Long (Kokane) - "Who Iz U"

From Matt Conaway:


What do P. Diddy, Snoop Dogg, DR. Dre, 50 Cent, Too Short, Cypress Hill, E-40, Busta Rhymes, George Clinton, and Eazy E have in common ?

The answer is… “Jerry B. Long” aka “Kokane”

Recognized world-wide as “The most featured artist in Hip-Hop Music,” Jerry B. Long/Kokane has appeared as a guest vocalist on more hit singles/albums than any artist in recorded music.

Multi-Platinum artists in the fields of Rap & R&B Music have turned to the distinctive voice of this incredible artist to grace their recordings for over 20-years and in the year 2011 the hits featuring Jerry’s voice just keep on rolling.

With the release of Snoop Dogg’s new album “Doggumentary”; Jerry B. Long is featured on the new single “Take Me Home”, as well as upcoming releases from Nipsey Hussle, WC and Jay Rock. Though Jerry’s had many defining moments over the course of his storied career, right now he is poised to take his career to new heights.

Urban music is undergoing a dramatic shift and transformation, as there are new sounds and styles emanating from all corners of the genre and there are really no boundaries.  Though he was already ahead of that curve, Jerry B. Long/Kokane is preparing to launch a new LP entititled, In The Middle Of The Road, though his own Bud E Boy Ent label in the summer of 2011.  This new LP will showcase his distinctive voice in ways his fans have never heard from him before and they will get a taste of the “R&B Soul” that brings back memories of the 80’s and 90’s in it’s purest form. As Jerry states, “I have been blessed with a Platinum recording career and on this new project I really have no musical boundaries. If it feels right I’m recording it.”

One of the first releases from the new album is an infectious tune called “Who Iz U” produced by Mr. Caviar & Secret Specialist, which will feature a re-mix version of the song with the Grammy Award winning artist Cee-Lo and Gipp Goodie of Goodie Mobb. The video for the remix is being filmed in Los Angeles with Cee-Lo & Gipp Goodie in late April.

So sit back, buckle up and get ready for quite an interesting ride. The music is bangin’ and it is coming at you In The Middle Of The Road.
