PR: Bliss N Eso Team Up With Big B for North American Tour
Courtesy Kerosene Media.
Australia’s biggest hip-hop group, Bliss N Eso, are teaming up with Las Vegas heavyweight Big B for a co-headline whirlwind tour of the US West Coast and Canada.
After meeting in the States years ago, the two acts have formed a strong bond which came to a head with Big B supporting the trio on their record-breaking 2011 Australian tour, which saw them perform to over 65,000 fans across the country – the largest ever for a local hip-hop act.
Bliss N Eso, which comprises of MCs Bliss and Eso alongside DJ Izm, are a multi-platinum Australian hip-hop group who are generally regarded as having one of the most electrifying live shows in the Southern Hemisphere. Their latest album, Running on Air, debuted at #1 on the ARIA Album Chart, they have also won an ARIA Award for Best Urban Album and they regularly headline Australia’s biggest music festivals – not bad for a country where rock music still reigns supreme. Word about the head-turning group from down under has started spreading across the globe and they are on their way to show what all the fuss is about.
Big B has been an underground figurehead since he first debuted on the scene in 2004. He has become known for his raw and honest style, some likening him to a modern day Johnny Cash, where he blends his own elements, namely hip-hop, alternative rock, country and even a little laid-back reggae vibe. In recent times, he has expanded his fanbase through regular appearances on A&E’s hit television series Inked and a major promotion through Madison Square Garden summer advertising campaign.
This tour is a chance to catch two rising stars of the hip-hop world up-close and personal, and is an opportunity not to be missed.

Later this year, Bay Area rapper and Clear Label Records recording artist Dolla Will is planning to release his latest album, Boss Flow. As he continues to put final touches on the project, he's excited to release a video for the album's latest single, "Addicted," a follow up to the Too $hort-assisted lead single "Work That Body," along with a brand new pre-album mixtape, Life Before Dolla Will.
he video was directed by Hiero's own Casual, for his video production company Wet Foot Filmworks, and features Will not only showing off his musical chops, but also getting into some acting. "This was me making my first acting debut," explains Dolla, who shows off some promising chops in front of the camera throughout the visual. "We wanted to make sure the visuals tied into the song, showing me hustling, being addicted to the life I live."
The video opens with Dolla Will and his girl in the midst of an argument - Dolla Will eloquently referencing a unique breed of butterflies to explain his need to hustle - and while the song's hook, a chopped vocal chant of "I'm addicted to this life/ It's gon' be hard to quit," and hustle-heavy verses play along, Will spends his day on the grind, hitting the local horse tracks - betting and winning big - before catching up with a business associate for a lucrative rendezvous.

What's up everybody, the VS Tour is rolling along, and as I'm in this shady hotel in Kansas, I got a free minute to tell you about the craziness already in the first 2 days of the tour. In Tucson AZ, we had the most random of surprise guests at the show, my favorite rapper, of the last 4 years, MURS!
We chatted it up quite a bit about comics, games and hip hop. Check out this video I recorded about his Kickstarter project.
Do me a favor and please share, like and comment on it. As awesome as it is that we hung out and talked about the possibility of future moves together, people need results to drive decisions. So if each of you watched, liked and commented something like "Please Put Mega Ran on Paid Dues!!!" (with 3 or more exclamation points), for example, who knows what could happen!!
