This week FADER premiered the latest track "One of Life's Pleasures" ft. Danny Brown from Paul White's new album Rapping With Paul White. Danny Brown, the wildly eccentric, mohawk-sporting, adderall-downing Detroit MC has finally met his match with the exuberant production of UK beatsmith Paul White. On this track, White lays down a whimsical musical journey that is weird and strangely compelling. Rapping With Paul White is out today via One-Handed Music and is streaming in full at AOL's Spinner.com.
Sandwiched somewhere in between straight-ahead hip-hop bangers, waltzing drum machines, and ethereal electronic soundscapes lies one of UK's most promising producers; Paul White. His new hip-hop album Rapping With Paul White , a playful and exuberantly experimental smorgasboard of sounds, features a host of hip-hop heavyweights including Guilty Simpson, Homeboy Sandman, Danny Brown, Marv Won and others. Rapping With Paul White is out today via One-Handed Music.

Oddisee has debuted his newest album Rock Creek Park. To give everyone a taste, Oddisee & MMG are giving away the song Still Doing It featuring yU of Diamond District. The song opens with hand drums and piano before breaking into tambourine shakes and yU's brillant flow. The humble king takes us on a lyrical ride through the park. The perfect end of summer jam, Still Doing It lets you feel the breeze and trees without losing any of the musical edge you expect from an artist like Oddisee who is always pushing boundaries. So relive the last moments of summer with Oddisee & yU: "Pennslyvania Ave, we rolling around, this is summertime we got the windows down." Then slide into Autumn with Rock Creek Park.
This has been one of my most productive summers & somehow I've managed to still enjoy the outdoors. I moved to Brooklyn, New York in October so this has been my first official summer in NYC. The inspiration I've received from my new environment has definitely had a positive impact on my music. Once the weather broke, I spent allot of time cycling around New York & through its parks. It reminded me how much I loved Rock Creek Park in my home town, Washington, DC. This album is dedicated to Rock Creek Park & the memories its given me.
How To Get The Album:
The new Oddisee instrumental album "Rock Creek Park" is already available electronically and drops everywhere on CD September 6th, and on vinyl September 27th.

In the short time since the release of his breakout debut single "After The Club" (formerly "Waffle House"), Block Starz Music recording artist J.R. Bricks has become one of Hip-Hop's most buzzworthy independent artists. Fittingly, the Havana, Florida rapper took home the "Buzz Factor" award at this weekend's 2011 Underground Music Awards held at world famous B.B. King's in New York.
A veteran of the United States Air Force, J.R. Bricks was originally profiled in YoRap.com's "Next 2 Blow" section in 2010 and has since been featured in various leading entertainment and trade publications, including AllHipHop.com, Billboard, XXL, and The Source magazines.
Released on July 20, J.R. Bricks debut single, "After The Club" (formerly "Waffle House") was an instant hit on the web, generating rave reviews from influential deejays and major label A&R, as well as national media coverage earlier this month due to a cease and desist action by Waffle House, Inc.
The buzz around J.R. Bricks has also landed the rapper his first endorsement deal, courtesy of independent lifestyle brand ArtistiCreation, www.artisticreation.com, who will provide Bricks with gear and promotional support. In addition, platinum producers Jimi Kendrix (Jay-Z, 50 Cent), DJ Pain 1 (Young Jeezy, Gucci Mane), and JStaffz (Wiz Khalifa), have signed on for J.R. Bricks, as-yet-untitled, major label distributed debut album through Block Starz Music, slated for early 2012 release.
J.R. Bricks will be shooting the official music video for "After The Club", with cameos expected by Gucci Mane, Waka Flocka, Lex Luger, DJ Sense, DJ Scream, and Drumma Boy among others. The video shoot, which was intended to be held on location at an area Waffle House, has been moved to The Atrium in Stone Mountain, GA (5479 Memorial Drive) and now centers around a fictional restaurant called "Waffle Place", with original set design and waitress uniforms.
J.R. Brick's "After The Club" is available from Block Starz Music on iTunes.
