Free Download: Bwan - "Living Room" LP (Beatrock Music)

Beatrock Music is proud to present Bwan's “Living Room” LP. The full length album is now available online for free digital download.   The album carries within it a tone of street-hop under the scope of social consciousness. Bwan describes his project by stating “‘Living Room’ is a reference to home, a place where you can be comfortable, safe and free to be yourself. But the title is a double entendre, also serving as an idiom for having ‘room to live’ from the daily struggles and oppression we as young people of color experience in America.”

Press Release: MGK Wins MTVU "Breaking Woodie" Award at SXSW

Press Release: MGK Wins MTVU "Breaking Woodie" Award at SXSW

EST 19XX/Bad Boy/Interscope recording artist MGK struck victory again this year winning the coveted mtvU "Breaking Woodie" Award given to the best emerging artist, besting A$AP Rocky, Fun., The Weeknd, Meek Mill, Azealia Banks, Iggy Azalea and others, at the "2012 mtvU Woodie Awards" which took place during the SXSW Music Festival last week.

This is MGK's second win with the network after being voted MTV News' 2011 "Hottest Breakthrough MC" of the year. The Woodie Award win comes days before MGK releases his Half Naked & Almost Famous EP on Tuesday, March 20th and sets out on a record-breaking "2012 Hostile Takeover" tour with Strange Music artist Tech N9ne. With 90 performances in 99 days, the "2012 Hostile Takeover" tour is the longest consecutive run in rap history.

MGK is thrilled to be releasing the EP to his fans. "We recorded the Half Naked EP and my upcoming Lace Up album in the basement of a friend's house in Cleveland," states MGK. "We only dreamed of the Lace Up Movement coming this far in such a short amount of time. I want to thank everyone that has supported and helped me get to this point. It's only the beginning, so Lace the F*ck Up!"
The Half Naked & Almost Famous EP features MGK's smash single "Wild Boy" that spawned a #1 voted BET 106 and Park music video. While at SXSW last week, MGK filmed a music video for the remix version of the track featuring electrifying artists 2 Chainz, Meek Mill, Mystikal, French Montana and Yo Gotti.  The video also features MTV Jackass celebrity Steve-O who is referenced to on the original track. The remix music video will premiere in the coming weeks.

MGK's song "Invincible"-available at all digital retailers-also captured multiple wins this year. It was selected by both Verizon Wireless as the backdrop for the HTC Rezound 3G smartphone campaign and by the WWE as a theme song to Wrestlemania XXVIII. As part of MGK's partnership with the WWE, he appeared on USA Network's WWE Monday Night Raw on March 12th when it filmed in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio. As well, he will make an appearance at Wrestlemania XXVIII on April 1st in Miami, FL.

Today, March 19th at 12pm PST, an MGK 'Cap That' promotion will go live that will allow fans to choose their favorite screenshot of the "Wild Boy" music video and order a poster or canvas with the image. This new technology will empower viewers to access the music video with frame-by-frame functionality to create one-of-a-kind products and share their visual creations across their social networks.

MGK is in the midst of an extensive touring schedule this year. Last month, he performed at college campuses across the country on the Vice Magazine / Project X Party Legends College Tour. He had multiple performances at SXSW including the SOB showcase, BET Music Matters, Woodie Award Festival and the VEVO showcase. MGK will also be on the Van's Warped Tour this summer. On March 22nd, he sets off on the 2012 "Hostile Takeover" tour and hopes to extend his already established fan base in various markets.  For 2012 Hostile Takeover tour dates and ticket information, visit: .
