"1st Degree Murder" features underground stalwarts Roc Marciano, Vinnie Paz, and Celph Titled, and the song continues Stu & Vander's impressive streak of bringing together some of hip-hop's most talented artists. "After the beat was done," says Stu Bangas, who produced the track, "it fit perfect for Roc Marciano." He adds, "I always thought Vinnie Paz and Roc Marciano would make an ill combo; Celph Titled came through to bless the hook and torch a verse."

Journalist 103 (of The Left) Signs With Babygrande Records

Honing in on the modern man’s struggle, Journalist 103 uses his words to paint vivid pictures of peril, inspiration and overcoming hardship. As the lyricist behind The Left’s critically acclaimed 2010 opus, “Gas Mask,” Journalist maneuvered through obscurity and rose to infamy as one of Detroit’s most celebrated narrators. Throughout the years, he has shared the mic with legends such as Kool G Rap and even lent his voice to the opening track on Proof’s out-of-print Detroit classic and now collector’s item, “Electric Coolaid Acid Testing.”

As his name suggests, Journalist 103 is able to articulate his point of view like a true professional, never relying on cheap frills to captivate listeners. “Journalist is a perfectly-titled MC because his raps have no gimmicks….but keep the listener coming back for more because they're expertly-arranged, compellingly delivered, and contain real substance,” declares The past two years have been incredible for Journalist, as his album alongside producer Apollo Brown and DJ Soko, collectively known as The Left, garnered a 92 (out of 100) from, reached the number 1position on’s staff picks for the Top 10 Albums of the Year, and has earned select spots in both DJ Premier and HipHopDX’s rankings for top albums of 2010.

Journalist 103 continues his investigative report on the human psyche and charters new territory on his solo debut, “Reporting Live,” to be released via Babygrande Records. “It is definitely a privilege and an honor to be putting this album out on Babygrande Records” remarks Journalist. “Sharing the Roster with the likes of Freeway and the legendary GZA makes everything up to this point all worth the while” he adds. Featuring guest appearances from Freeway, Saigon & Fashawn, and production from Snowgoons, Apollo Brown, Oddisee, The Audible Doctor, and more, Journalist 103 returns to boast lyrics straight from the headlines of an eye-opening periodical.

The album’s first single, “Danger” is produced by the notorious Detroit beat battler Marc Byrd and features Philadelphia legend, Freeway. “Danger” is a room-filling banger that showcases Journalist and Freeway trading verses, heeding a warning of the severity of street life. 
Journalist 103’s solo debut, “Reporting Live,” will hit stores worldwide on October 30, 2012 via Babygrande Records.
