Over the next #10Weeks, Paris and Slim are committing to doing a number of things (like wearing Converse shoes with Nike socks, kissing ratchets in the mouth, and hunting down their beloved producer PICNICTYME), the most note-worthy of which is completing a new mixtape. The recording process for this untitled piece of work has already begun, with the two showcasing their growth as emcees and speaking on a host of new experiences the way only they can. Watch their short promo video, where they elaborate on what's to come over the next #10Weeks.

Video: Music Can Change People's Lives (A Message From Hasan Salaam)
"I cannot begin to explain how blessed it is to be a part of this project. Not only does Guinea-Bissau have to deal with the political and historical struggles of post-colonial Africa, but people have to face the day-to-day struggles that very few people here in America have ever experienced, and some cannot begin to fathom. Drinking water: something we have on tap in our homes, public fountains, and even bottled up for choice of brand, is very difficult to get in many parts of Guinea-Bissau. The construction of this well has ensured clean water for the village and surrounding areas."
"Sometimes you just wanna make a rap video at a days notice. Especially when you grow up on the other side of the earth and get a chance to go to a place you've only seen in skate vids, the Mo Money, Mo Problems music video and at the end of Men In Black. No days off until this thing takes off."
New Music: Random x Homeboy Sandman: "Faculty Lounge"
Philly bred ex-teacher Random aka Mega Ran enlisted another educator turned rhyme-slinger, recent Stones Throw Records signee Homeboy Sandman, in this example of what goes down on a typical afternoon in the faculty lounge. Mega Ran and Boy Sand set it on the American educational system's flaws over an ill funk chop by DN3, with precise cuts and scratches by Phoenix's DJ LES 735.
The song will appear on Random's new conceptual EP, Language Arts Volume 2, also featuring Mela Machinko, Chaundon and more, releasing August 22. Volume 1 and even his own VIDEO GAME based on the album, is available now. Swag. http://language-arts-game.com .
Until then, catch Random on tour with Open Mike Eagle and DJ DN3 on the Summer Sessions tour.

New Audio: Big Shug f/ Fat Joe & M.O.P. "Hardbody" (produced by DJ Premier)
His name says it all; standing at well over six feet tall and with the intimidating muscular build of a linebacker, Big Shug's physical presence alone is enough to command attention. His voice, a hoarse rumble effective for delivering both fearsome threats or smooth crooning as his alter-ego Shugie Diamonds, is one of rap's most instantly recognizable. As both a solo artist and founding member of Gang Starr, his name has consistently shown up in album credits alongside hip-hop's elite for over 20 years.
