B.o.B. Artist, singer-songwriter and record producer B.o.B. got his first taste of fame when he utilized Myspace to release mixtapes and a Top 5 Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Single "Haterz Everywhere." He became a household name when his debut album B.o.B. Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray entered the Billboard Top 200 at the #1 spot. The album's first three singles ("Nothin' on You," "Airplanes," and "Magic") amazingly all reached the Top 10 on Billboard's Hot 100 song chart. The 2x platinum selling lead single "Nothin on You" featuring Bruno Mars hit #1 in multiple countries including the US and UK. B.o.B. trumped "Nuthin On You" sales success with the 4x platinum selling follow-up single "Airplanes" featuring Hayley Williams. The album and singles achieved 2011 Grammy nominations as well as nods from both the MTV and BET Awards. The Atlanta bred B.o.B. followed up the massive success of his debut with his second album "Strange Clouds" which entered the Billboard Top 200 album chart at #5. The album's first single "Strange Clouds" featuring Lil Wayne struck Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and has sold over 1.3 million digital copies worldwide.
Phil Ade Drops "Pop That" (Royal Fam Remix) featuring Dee Boy
Phil Ade explains the title of his new project R.O.S.E: "With this project i want to give listeners an in-depth look at how some of the negative influences in society, mainly in media, has affected not just me, but my generation as a whole. Every person is a R.O.S.E. that realizes these evils and either responds positively or negatively, but in just about all cases a little bit of both."

Stereo Boyz presents B-Boyz aka Brand New & Kid Boombox, who are a part of the Stereo Boyz Crew. "This song is about being sick and tired of people making music with no substance, no emotion or feeling. This is the Stereo Boyz Crew way of having fun and at the same time calling people out. We love Hip Hop and are tired of artists claiming it but not doing Hip Hop. We dont fuck with that. " The Stereo Boyz Crew feels that Hip Hop doesn't have to sound a certain way musically, for it to be considered real Hip Hop. They want to show that you can have hard hitting beats, you can make party music, as long as your lyrics are on point and you're doing something original, it's Hip Hop.
Our brand-new body of work will be soon available "AMEERica - True.Good.Beautiful" and at the mercy of the ears of the world. We had fun in the process of creating this project alongside with dealing with setbacks and everyday life issues which heavily influenced the sound. Ameer humbly let's you further into his life, loves and mishaps with that being said there is so much more life to live out God willing. Join us and engage in something that when you walk away you know you walked away with some food and dessert for the heart & soul.
Last year, Kyle Rapps broke out with two impressive projects, his Kev Brown-produced Re-Edutainment EP and his Air-sampling On Air mixtape, a collection of projects that found the Harlem-based upstart collaborating with the likes of Talib Kweli, Joell Ortiz, KRS-One, and more. The first half of 2012 has been equally busy, and has seen Kyle branch out as he continues to work with new collaborators, the most recent of which is producer Diwon. Together, the rapper and producer released their Tyrone Gosling EP, a free project inspired by the 2011 thriller Drive, and now, they're prepping a new mixtape, Syndication, to be released this fall, which pulls its samples from a variety of classic TV theme songs.
