PR: Dee-1 Ready to Unleash "I Hope They Hear Me: Vol. 2"


From Nancy B:

Dee-1 Ready to Unleash "I Hope They Hear Me: Vol. 2"

New Orleans, LA - It has been a whirlwind few months for up-and-comer Dee-1. After putting in work for the past couple of years building a slow but steadily-growing fan base around the country, things took off for him after MTV grabbed onto his "Jay, 50 & Weezy" video back in November, adding it to MTV2, MTV Jams and MTVu. The video aired for months, making it onto the Sucker Free Countdown (#16) with no radio support at that time. Since then there has been a great deal of internet support and blog postings, another video added to MTV Jams ("One Man Army" to begin airing soon) and an offer from one of the majors who, for reasons of superstition, shall remain nameless at this time. Awesomely, radio throughout his region has now jumped on the Dee-1 bandwagon recently and added "Jay, 50 & Weezy" just on love. That being said, all this activity had to be leading somewhere....right?

The answer is YES! and thus, Dee-1 is ready to unleash his street album, "I Hope They Hear Me: Vol. 2", upon the world on 2/22/11, solidifying the buzz his recent leaks from the tape have garnered. "IHTHM2" is a 19-track opus telling the story of one man's struggle to come up in the game and his views on life in general. It has few features; Murs, Manny Fresh, Mickey Factz Mac, but they are meaningful ones.

Today's leak from the tape is "It's My Turn" and as the name suggests, Dee-1 has a sense of entitlement based on the hard work these past few years have demanded of him. The video can be expected a week or so before "IHTHM2" drops.

Also in the pipeline for Dee-1 are several showcases at this year's SXSW Festival and a slot on Murs' 'Paid Dues' Festival on April 2nd. He will also be doing a full week of media in NYC from 2/28-3/4 in support of the tape. With luck, we will soon be able to announce his official signing to the afore-non-mentioned major label as well. Stranger things have happened.......stay tuned.

Video: IamOmni - "All Over"

The first single from CRY AMERICA, the new album from the West Coast's best kept secret IamOmni, produced fully by UK trip-hop pioneer TRICKY. Directed by Mark Yamamoto. Omni's previous albums include collaborations with Fatlip of Tha Pharcyde, Aceyalone and Mikah Nine of Freestyle Fellowship, WildChild of the Lootpack. IamOmni’s self-titled album is available May 3rd, exclusively at rvca.com.
 
Says Omni of working with Tricky:
 
"Working with Tricky has been nothing short of an amazing experience, I worked with him in the past on material and for lightening to strike twice and me being able to do a complete project with him is mindblowing. I am forever in his debt."

Free Music Friday: One Love Edition



Consequence :: Movies on Demand 2



[Consequence is back with a "Movie" sequel, however you don't have to worry about this sequel being horrible unlike its preceder. Cons still brings the G.O.O.D. Music that we all know and love as cameo appearances ranges from Q-Tip to Talib Kweli to Diggy Simmons. Check it!]

Fortlive :: I vs. I




[Most of you guys know !llmind as a producer, but do you also know him as a producer in a group? !llmind, Mushmouf, and Slo-Mo offers you their high quality hip-hop and the best part is that it's for de FREE! Aside from !llmind's production, which he produced about 85% of this project, Slo Mo gets behind the boards as well as Symbolyc One (known as the producer to Kanye West's "Power"). Check it out!]

L.E.G.A.C.Y :: Featuring L.E.G.A.C.Y Pt. 2



[About two years ago, L.E.G.A.C.Y. decided to release his "Featuring" mixtape displaying all of the track he's been featured in during the past year. This year, he's doing it again and it contains track that I didn't even know he made. L.E.G.A.C.Y stays persistent and this mixtape will prove it. Check out all his cameos in this tape.]

Loki Da Trixta :: Thievery



[I'm mad at myself for sleeping on this cat, but this project serves as the cold water splash to my face waking me from my slumber. But when I wake up, I realize I'm not dreaming when I hear this real hip-hop that came seemingly out of nowhere but at the right time, as well. This brings the right combination of hip-hop and electronica without the lame and cheesy robotic/futuristic effects (I'm talking about you, Black Eyed Peas!). Downloading this for free won't be "Thievery" as the title suggests, but stealing time away without hearing this will be.]

Money Making Jam Boys :: The Prestige: Jam Boy Magic



[Black Thought. Dice Raw. S.T.S. Truck North. P.O.R.N. Free. That's all I need to mention to convince you to download this if you claim you love hip-hop. Did I mention that it's a supergroup? I know it's becoming a trend for err'ybody and they cousins to make a supergroup these days, but the M.M.J.B. puts the SUPER in the supergroup and they should put the word "bad" between super and group, as well. Not bad meaning bad, but bad meaning GOOD!]
