Video: Yukmouth Presents "Wesperado's"


From Nancy B:

Video: Yukmouth Presents "Wesperado's"

Long Beach, CA - To watch Monsta's latest video, "Wesperado's ft. Yukmouth and Ganxsta Ridd" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAiwLeQmQy4&feature=related  (41, 859 plays on YouTube) is to be transported back to the West Coast's rap hay days of the 90's - and it's a wild trip. Truth be told, Monsta has been rhyming with Yuk and fellow Regime members since the early 2000's  - just watch Yuk tell it in this introduction video clip - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3SGT2M4iNY&feature=channel_video_title - but that is not his only Hip Hop legacy; he is also nephew to the infamous Boo Yaa Tribe. Anyone unfamiliar should pick up his recently released EP "Allow Me To Re-Introduce Myself" which features some of his best material with Yukmouth and Techn9ne from back in their Rap-A-Lot days.

If you are thinking, "why all the re-hashing?", well, Monsta will be releasing his debut solo album, "Pacific Coast Highway" on April 12th on Dawn Raid/SMC Recordings/Fontana with brand new material featuring Jacka, Huslah, Masspike Miles, Hell Rell and of course, Yukmouth and Boo Yaa Tribe.

Gangsta, right? Well, Monsta does have a softer side too, believe it or not. Just watch this ode to his Mother, "This Is Love ft. J Boog", a single that was recently certified RIANZ Gold, if you don't believe me - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTCqNRcIxQE&feature=relmfu (227, 624 plays on YouTube)

"Pacific Coast Highway" is anything but a rehash. It is the culmination of the past 10 years on Monsta's musical journey beginning as a Mexican/Samoan child growing up in the church, to growing up as a teenager in the violent streets of Carson City and Long Beach, CA.

Take a roadtrip with Monsta along the Pacific Coast Highway - April 12th, 2011!

MP3: Gees Extortion - "Know Your Ledge"


From Javi S:

MP3: Gees Extortion - "Know Your Ledge"

Rhyming over industry beats is too easy for Gees Extortion so he decided to take it back a little and take a flow not many emcees can duplicate. That said, check out his freestyle over Eric B. & Rakim's "Know the Ledge" from the cult classic movie Juice.

From Park Street PR:

Video: Cyclonious - "Never Lose Your Passion"

Cyclonious comes with another heavyweight video from his latest release 'The Warrior & The BlackSmith'. Cyclonious returns with his second installment of 2011, 'The Warrior & the Blacksmith', that is set to continue the fire that 'Escape to Reality' ignited. Cyclonious is a very focused and talented songwriter and performer and over the last couple of years he has cemented himself in the UK scene by releasing quality product on a frequent basis. Here Cyclonious teams up with the internationally acclaimed French Producer '42nd Chamber - Shaolin Beatmaker'. Here the duo have cleverly cut & crafted a hard hitting, intense, ear drum bursting, thunderous nine track EP that is destined to get the recognition that it deserves.

From Mello Music Group:

MP3: Has-Lo - "Untitled #1 (Hold On)"

Has-Lo's album In Case I Don't Make It is in stores now via Mello Music Group!  The Philly MC/Producer has garnered a lot of well deserved critical acclaim while word continues to spread amongst both fans and critics.
 
"They say knowledge is power and love is wealth
And to get right for what you love you go through hell"
 
Today, enjoy the free mp3 download of the song Untitled #1 (Hold On), one of the more personal songs from the album In Case I Don't Make It.  Untitled #1 (Hold On) tackles a variety of heartfelt, universal issues: illness, judgement, loss, school, making money, and  juggling family obligations.  Untitled #1 (Hold On) plays like a contented and confessional introspective afternoon walk. On display is Has-Lo's ability to not only craft a narrative tale that is reflective and keenly observant, but also to produce an atmosphere rich enough to evoke a visceral repsonse from listeners on many levels.

Enjoy the free download: feel free to post and share.
