Video: @Cali_Verb - "Tiger"

From Wanja Lange:

Video: V3RB - "Tiger"

About the Song: "Tiger" is very strange to me. I created the track not expecting it to be released on any official project but after sending it to BTG management, we were convinced it was something more. What is Tiger? For me, the word tiger is synonymous with releasing rage and just letting loose. In this song, I do just that as I flip words and exercise my inner thoughts. Being that its the first single off my debut album titled "Standing Ovation", I'm hoping to carry the energy of "Tiger" across the entire project. Bar for bar, no slaking and no short cuts. Being abstract mentally and lyrically sound is something I pride myself on and I'm hoping that "Tiger" expresses that". V3RB

MP3: @40Love - "Anywhere" f/ Black Spade, Anthony Coleman II

From Audible Treats:

MP3: 40Love - "Anywhere" Feat. Black Spade, Anthony Coleman II

40Love can see their album release date (July 24th) on the horizon, and the group has no plans on slowing their roll before then. Now, the San Francisco-based squad is releasing their third single from Dreams Don’t Sleep, "Anywhere," which was premiered by Okayplayer.

"The song is about conveying the beauty of traveling, performing music, and keeping it genuine," explains rapper G-OFF, who, along with MC/vocalist Miss Haze and DJ/Producers Mikos and The Whooligan, just finished a fulfilling tour in Europe sponsored by skateboarding company FTC. "There’s nothing like seeing the world and establishing strong connections with like-minded people while truly being yourself."

For their new cooled-out track, 40Love called upon long-time friend Black Spade to help flesh out the concept, lay down the hook, and drop a verse. According to group, Spade brought "a fly but raw element" to "Anywhere," while G-OFF and Miss Haze laced the track with soulful braggadocio over a brass-infused beat, compliments of trumpeter Anthony Coleman II. "We can and will be anywhere and everywhere at any given time," says The Whooligan. "Shinning, grinding, hustling – no one is going to stop us."

The Iron Cobra - Brand New Likwuid & 2HB Collabo Track

From Robert M:

The Iron Cobra - Brand New Likwuid & 2HB Collabo Track

The title technically signifies a drum pedal but is indicative of the murderously massive kick that strikes throughout the 2hB beat over an Alan Parson's Project sample.

The title also indicative of the poisonous melody and bass you will inject into your music listening apparatus to make your car, head, cell, stereo swell like Cobra Venom (Kungfu Hustle style).

But it's more than a song about my beat. There's quite a layering of depth that Likwuid applies like a Master Mason. But it's only a brick for Likwuid's free spirited project, Likwuidity. It's what we're doing till we get things buckled down and solidified for the completion of Grace. Don't hold your breath to hear Likwuid over a band's interpretation of 2HB beats because you really do not have to. She's banging out tuff titty material for you to absorb and blast in your means of transport.

Iron Cobra venom is set to spray then float in the summer air if you'll have it.

Peep the Bandcamp link for free access to this super duper track- Iron Cobra

The Rugged Man.  In this interview (courtesy of Faygoluvers), Tech speaks on the first collaboration between the two, set to appear on the Rugged Man's highly anticipated new album Legends Never Die.  He also discusses R.A.'s personality and the history between the two artists.  Legends Never Die drops later this year on Nature Sounds.

Free EP: @BrownSeason84 & Kaiji - "Homage" (@HexsagonVOTS)

From Wanja Lange:

Free EP: Brown & Kaiji (In Stereo) - "Homage"

Homage is collaborative effort by emcees Brown & Kaiji (In Stereo) paying tribute to those who paved a way musically and historically. Brown and Kaiji (In Stereo) met through Daneja Mentale, and shortly began exchanging verses on one another's projects. The two discovered they had done so many songs together, they decided to do something official, and it became Homage. J.Brown representing Union City, Tennessee and Kaiji (In Stereo) representing Chicago, Illinois add elements of soul, lyricism, and the origins of peace, love, and unity. Homage represents what music means to them, and how it has changed their lives for the better. Homage allows the audience to go back into time, and remember when music used to mean something.
