Big Bang Records & EMS Productions connect to bring you a powerhouse posse cut featuring the best independent emcees out today.
This thunderous display of lyricism connects recent Boston Music Award winner M-Dot with underground hip-hop legend Virtuoso, Army of the Pharoahs member King Magnetic, cult favorite Singapore Kane, hugely popular true-school duo N.B.S. (E'Flash & V.Knuckles), and Red Eye (of The Closers). All over production courtesy of the European hip-hop collective Snowgoons (who featured M-Dot, Virtuoso, and N.B.S. on their recent album "Kraftwerk")
Big Bang Records, Mr. Peter Parker, DJ Dow Jones, and Shadyville DJ's worldwide bring you the second visual from the ground breaking compilation "The Free Trade Agreement" (following the thunderous Warren G produced cut featuring Bishop Lamont, Nate Dogg, and Sonnreal). Dow Jones and Peter Parker enlist the services of long time collaborators N.B.S. (E'Flash and V.Knuckles) for this monstrous cross-national anthem entitled "Champions". N.B.S. once again displays their always impressive verbal abilities trading verses atop of the production by Canadian wunderkind Keenotherapy, with visuals provided by the always innovative 20/20 Vizin.
The northeastern portion of the country is in for a visit from newly formed urban music entity Abstract Music Group and their flagship artist, Savant aka Stanstro. In just one week, the RAREBREED emcee will be headlining his first tour of sorts as he leaves from Philadelphia on March 11th with fellow Abstract Music Group affiliates Rasheed Chappell and DJ Uneek (also of M.O.P.) and culminates in Boston on March 18th. Also performing on the Abstract Music Spring Tour 2011 (co-sponsored by Brooklyn Bodega) are John Public, Jake Lefco, Rising Sun Quest, Sketch the Cataclysm, Catch Wreck and OneThree Music affiliates ASN, Re-Surch and Purpose of the Tragic Allies. Diggers Union’s newest inductee, DJ Books will be manning the wheels of steel in Boston.
Slated to rock 5 locations, the Chicago bred Savant is touring mostly to promote the arrival of Abstract Music Group as a driving force in independent music, but also to promote his latest music endeavors, the leak series, "Crash Course" and the subsequent EP "Crash". In "Crash Course", Savant has been releasing a new record twice a month since December 2010, with the vast majority of the songs featuring at least one guest spot. This will continue until the May release of his sophomore project, the Fess Grandiose produced and ThaGoodLifeReviews.com co-sponsored "Crash". You can catch up with Savant's leak series at both his SoundCloud and BandCamp pages and his EP will be available from both his BandCamp and ThaGoodLifeReviews.com.

Pastor Troy is dropping his new album "Still Troy" on March 15th. Here goes the first single, "Dirty Atlanta" featuring Ralph. The song was produced by Big Hollis (Snoop Dogg, Crooked I, Knoc-turn'al, etc).
MP3: Mike Beatz & Adonis f/ Wrekonize - "My World"
Mike Beatz and Adonis are proud to release the first song off their upcoming album Boom Bap. On "My World", Adonis brilliantly samples Charles Bradley's "The World (Is Going Up In Flames)", something not often seen since most hip hop samples tend to come from prior generations of music. Mike Beatz takes hold of the mic and brings you into his world fresh from touring for his feature on the UK platinum selling "Riverside" single as a member of Wizard Sleeves for Sidney Samson. They feature Wrekonzie from !Mayday! for this vivid record where both Mike Beatz and Wrekonize observe the changes over the past few years and know that no matter what, they must continue their grind in this gridlock industry life. Boom Bap will release later this year and features Guilty Simpson, Termanology, Royce Da 5' 9", AZ and more.
