On May 29th, Los Angeles native and Brick Squad Monopoly rapper YG Hootie is teaming up with Konvict Muzik's own west coast representative, Bay Area rapper A-Wax, and together, the pair will release their collaborative album, Interstate Trafficking, via BSM/Illburn Records. Earlier that same month, the two rappers will release a Trap-A-Holics mixtape, and today, A-Wax is giving fans a loosie solo track titled "#Rapperblood."
The track, produced by Nonstop The Hitman, is driven forward by slinky synths, 808 snares, and menacing low-end, and for his part, A-Wax compliments the beat with plenty of slick wordplay. Opening the track with the song's chorus, A-Wax raps, "What's up with these rappers, blood?/I'm not just some rapper, blood/ Looking at my Louis shoe, wipping off some rapper's blood," while later he spits equally entertaining bars like, "I fuck with the dealers/ Not so much the rappers/ Big old 18-wheeler/ Containing that package."

Chuuwee’s Crown Me King will serve as the prelude to his long-awaited official solo-debut, Wild Style, which will be released on 5-29-2012 via Amalgam Digital. Whereas Chuuwee’s previous efforts were hybrid sub-genres he created such as “neo-boombap” (neo-soul meets boom-bap) or “hooliganarism” which Chuuwee describes as Treach of Naughty By Nature meets Wakka Flakka Flame, Wild Style can be summarized as pure 90s Hip Hop.
