In the third episode of Live from the Streets, we take you to Old City to meet up with Jus Allah. Jus was chilling out at Gigi's Bar and Grille and was cool enough to give us a quick shout out. After that, we introduce Janice, a friendly traveler from down South with a Ukulele. She had been on the road for a while but she took the time to play us her own version of one of her favorite songs by Andrew Jackson Jihad. Finally, we head down to city hall which is currently being occupied by Protestors and we take a look around.
EVERLAST Announces Tour Dates In Support of New Album “Songs of the Ungrateful Living” With Support From Redlight King; First single “I Get By” Continues To Climb Charts
Grammy-winner EVERLAST has announced new tour dates in support of his upcoming studio album "Songs of the Ungrateful Living", which hits stores on October 18th. Lucky residents of Long Beach, CA will have a chance to meet Everlast in-person at Fingerprints C D's & L P's on the day the album drops during a special in-store performance. Everlast has also scheduled a rare intimate performance at the legendary Viper Room in Hollywood on October 20th, as well as KTBZ's Buzzfest in Houston on October 22nd. Everlast will hit the road for a full US tour in the month of November with Hollywood Records recording artist Redlight King supporting all dates.
Everlast has returned to the airwaves in a big way with, "I Get By" the first single from "Songs of the Ungrateful Living". "I Get By," an anthem for these troubled times is already making major in-roads at radio, breaking the top forty at both the BDS and Mediabase Alternative charts. Highlights include top five airplay on San Diego's influential 91x and top ten in Tucson on KFMA. Paul Kriegler, program director at Tulsa's KMYZ comments emphatically, "Huge phones! A message that really resonates." "I Get By," is just one of the emotionally impactful songs off the album that Rolling Stone says, "highlights economic hardship." Vibe comments, "On his sixth solo studio work the groundbreaking white MC is making a no-nonsense return-to-form."
EVERLAST recently performed as a part of KROQ's Epicenter Show on September 24th at Irvine's Verizon Wireless Center where the site OC Reloaded exclaimed, "Everlast (aka Erik Schrody) is not just any ole white-boy rapper. He's also a talented songwriter, musician, and leader of the legendary rap group House of Pain," calling his songs "brilliant."
Although there have been albums in between, "Songs of the Ungrateful Living" is the spiritual follow-up to his 1998 breakthrough, the multi-platinum "Whitey Ford Sings the Blues", an eclectic mix of rock, blues, country, pop and hip-hop, which topped the Billboard charts and sold more than 3 million copies on the strength of its crossover hit, "What It's Like."
A latticework of rock and hip hop, Redlight King's music conjures old school sounds while frontman-songwriter, Kaz's, pensive musings reflect the culmination of life's highs and lows. Landing in the U.S. with a bang, Redlight King's first single "Old Man" from their U.S. debut, 'Something For The Pain', garnered plenty of buzz. The original song featuring the first-ever sampling of the Neil Young classic, approved by Neil himself, debuted #10 on iTunes Rock Chart while the album landed #3 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart. Fresh off a summer tour with AWOLNATION, Redlight King is ready to head back on the road in support of their current single "Bullet In My Hand," a ferocious blend of rock with rhythmic undertones that has anthem written all over it.

"The Word is the last song on the album. "Where Do We Go From Here?" is definitely a street hop type of album, but I'm a very conscious person and I didn't want to create an album without touching on a few subjects that are dear to my heart. This song is one of the jewels you will find hidden within the album and it's by far one of my favorites. If you don't believe in a higher power, this song most likely isn't for you. If you do believe in a higher power, you will appreciate the sincerity in my words. This record is the type of record most people are afraid to make. I wasn't embarrassed or ashamed to express myself and with the help of a two extremely talented vocalists (Carlitta Durand and JTronius) I was able to create magic and a song that will stand the test of time. No matter your religion, race or creed...if you believe...you will understand why I crafted this joint."

MP3: Andre Nickatina - "Still Gon Ball" Feat. Messy Marv & J. Valentine
Courtesy Audible Treats.
Andre Nickatina has been non-stop bouncing this month, jumping from coast to coast on his Money Shark 2011 Tour, which continues all the way to New Years Eve in Seattle. Despite his busy schedule, he's taking the time today to release the mp3 for his latest single, "Still Gon Ball," giving fans a chance to finally get their hands on the song after catching the video premiere last month on VEVO. For "Still Gon Ball," Andre lets fellow Fillmore compatriot Messy Marv jump on the first part of each verse, while ever-smooth crooner J. Valentine, also of the Bay Area, caresses the hook. The heavily electronic production is an unexpected choice for the emcee, but with lyrics like, "My style is candy painted/ My suit is tailor-maded/ My pinky ring would get a brick if I ever trade it," it's not hard to see why the song is quickly becoming a fan favorite for Nickatina fans.
Nefew and producer 7 inch are proud to present their collaborative effort, TRANSITIONS, which is available from all digital outlets today. The EP boasts the single OVER HERE which has already featured on some of the premier Hip-Hop sites with the video being picked up by MTVu in the US and various MTV networks in Europe.
