From Wanja Large:

EP Release: Zero Star - 72 Dolphins

The feeling you got when you first heard Show and AG's classic track "Next Level," is the same exact feeling Columbus, Ohio's Zero Star hopes to give listeners on his new project "Don't Look Now!"  Zero Star takes an unconventional approach, in a conventional rap world, while an unknown but extremely talented producer by the name of J Maggz provides the backdrop.  The man who claims to be from "The Rewind Era," gives plenty of rewind moments through this 8 song EP.  With raps by the hundreds Zero takes listeners on a fast paced journey of emotional highs, whether it's his motivational undefeated slogan "72 Dolphins," or the infectious bounciness of "#1 With a Bullet."  Zero is out to make certain his name will soon be mentioned alongside your favorite underground emcees.

Check out the lead single "72' Dolphins" below along with the stream and purchase link of "Don't look now".

PR: Trae Tha Truth #9 on iTunes in Only One Day

Houston, TX - Three years of waiting is over and Trae Tha Truth's new album, "Street King", which dropped yesterday is currently #9 on the iTunes Rap Chart .

You can listen to a stream of the album courtesy of AOL Music here -

You can read XXL Magazine's "XL" review of "Street King" here -

The cameos are a who's who and include Lupe Fiasco, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Wiz Khalifa, Big Boi, Jadakiss and Wyclef. These are real features though, not just bought and paid for the name value additions. That's the privilege of being a street king.

Next up for Trae is Trae Day, on July 22nd, in celebration of having been awarded his own day by proclamation of then-mayor, Bill White. The event will be live-streamed via

This will be a free community event aiming to provide the under served with the things they need to go back to school; something Trae has done annually since being awarded this honor.

MP3: Max Burgundy - "Save Ferris (Fuck My Job)"

* *

Are you having a bad day at work today? Is your work piling up? Is your boss being a complete pain in the ass? If so, this is the track for you.
Everyone has a job that they hate at least once in their life, so here is a song for the masses. Max Burgundy is back at it again with his newest hit “Save Ferris (Fuck My Job).”  Featuring The Office theme song by The Scrantones, which is unmistakably catchy, you will be immediately drawn in to what Burgundy has to say…which is a lot.
“Save Ferris (Fuck My Job),” is about to be the anthem of the summer. “Life’s a bitch, sometimes you need to Michael Vick it,” Burgundy raps with both fun and passion, giving the finger to life’s responsibilities. With an incredible beat that will keep the party going into your long awaited weekend off, Max proves to the world (and any ex-bosses) that he is the next big thing in music. He’s already won us over.
Hailing from the streets of the Bronx and now currently living in Brooklyn, Max knows there is no tougher place to work than New York, and he surely has the experience to draw from as he has worked in the restaurant industry. His colorful style goes beyond the boundaries of rap, and truly draws in the listener no matter what their genre of choice is. With long time collaborator KayKay on the Beatz, and a dab of Dr. Dre’s drum loops, “Save Ferris (Fuck My Job)” is ready to take action. Even Ferris Bueller is referenced for those times that you just want to take a sick day. We’ve all taken a couple of those, right?
For anyone who has ever had a job they hated, this is for you. For anyone who has ever had a nagging boss, this is for you. For anyone who has ever hid underneath their desk, this is for you. For anyone who has ever called in sick, this is for you. Max Burgundy is here to help get out the aggression without getting you fired. Get ready to let off some steam.
