Brought to you by the LSD camp, Al-One of Sandpeople teamed up with Sacramento heavyweights Chase Moore & J Leake to create the Hippie Sabotage produced single "Spliffs & Vodka". The video was shot in Portland, OR and was directed by Micah Warren of IVLG Media.
If you where tuned into the late 90’s indy 12″ boom, you probably remember the Constant Deviants. The Baltimore/NY duo which consists of emcee M.I. and producer DJ Cutt released the jazzy underground burner “Can’t Stop” in 1998, which built them a solid fan base that inspired them to start their own label Six2Six Records, which specializes in limited pressing and rare vinyl from their catalog and extended fam. In 2012, Constant Deviants are preparing to release their long-awaited LP, “Diamond” an album that has been carefully crafted to represent the eras they have witnessed.
Baltimore MC Substantial jumped back into the scene with this fall’s Home Is Where The Art Is, a personal and powerful testament to Stan B. Robinson’s development as a man and MC. Fans and critics seem to concur. To keep the momentum going on this fantastic LP, Substantial and Mello Music Group drop the uplifting video for “See Hear."
Today, as MHz Legacy continues to celebrate the release of their long awaited, self-titled debut album, they're taking part in the tradition of Throwback Thursday with one of the rarest songs from their vaults,"The Only Weatherman Song." The song, accompanied here by new, exclusive artwork, stands apart as a classic from the early 2000s era of hip-hop and marks one of the only times that Copywrite, El-P, Camu Tao, Tage Future, Cannibal Ox, Jakki Da Motamouth, and Yak Ballz (otherwise known as The Weathermen) were all in one studio at the same time.
2012 has been nothing short of successful for the fast-rising independent hip-hop label Man Bites Dog Records, and now, as the year nears its close, the label is excited to introduce the newest member of its roster, Wais P. Early next year, Wais will release his official debut album, Pimpin Saved My Life, but first, Wais P is excited to announce his new mixtape, PV$$Y Rich. The tape will be released for free download this December, and in announcing the new tape, Wais is also unveiling the tape's first single, "Live My Bars," produced by Virginia producer Grussle.

Bronx Stand Up! Kemba Walker has been holding it down on the court as the Charlotte Bobcats' Point Guard for almost a year. And now his famous first triple-double and impressive game work has caught the attention of those looking for a fresh face to represent their company; one of those companies being Under Armour. Check out the new Under Armour commercial featuring Kemba Walker on the court, chilling in the BX and hitting up Hot 97's Morning Show with Cipha Sounds and Rosenberg.
"Another underground spirit trial..." begins dahLak's bluesy hip-hop spiritual. A hypnotizing groove sets the tone of dahLak's open letter on the different ways he is "trying to make it". A quintessential song off of his concept album "spiritrials" available on 12.12.12
Now just how did a newcomer get a 13-time Grammy Award winner like Eminem to be featured on a new track? Well, it all comes down to talent. And Jimi Nu is just that talented—even the legends do duets with him. The song—“No Games”—was produced by Jayson Brown and featured Eminem. The two hip hop artists definitely aren´t playing—as they come hard and strong on No Games on: http://www.sendspace.com/file/74w1qf .
Friendly Greg and I practically INVENTED this whole Popped and Screwed thing. I mean, we have LOADS of unreleased material, just burning a hole in our computers. We did this track months ago for my upcoming Popped and Screwed album... which then ended up delayed (It's coming out this month). We needed to let this auditory artwork spread its wings and fly. So what is this track all about? Well, it's Jennifer Paige singing about her little crush, with Three 6 Mafia rapping about, well, whatever Three 6 Mafia raps about. And then there's that HEAVY Rick Ross beat. A montage of random wonderfulness. Enjoy.
