Wandering Worx Music officially releases the much anticipated new album from Seattle MC Khingz' Liberation Of The Monster, an 11-song album produced entirely by Vancouver's REL!G!ON. Fresh from his opening performance this past weekend for Freestyle Fellowship and Blackalicious alongside his fellow Hi-Life Soundsystem bandmates, Khingz is ready to drop what he calls "A sonic assault on all the preconceived notions that chain a person to mediocrity".
Khingz and REL!G!ON met at a Vancouver music showcase in 2010 and started work on the album at REL!G!ON's studio shortly thereafter. Khingz also has albums in production with Seattle producers Vitamin D and Bean One. You can find him in Seattle opening for Mos Def and Talib Kweli at The Show Box on November 5th. Visit www.wanderingworx.com to get the album and tons of free music from Planet Asia, Jasiri X, Moka Only and more.
Having moved beyond their recent LP, When Pigs Fly, and still putting the finishing touches on their new EP, a project that will include production from Black Milk, S1, Picnictyme, and others, Dallas duo A.Dd+ continues to release a string of new, quality tracks they're now packaging and releasing them as a collection of free, non-album singles packaged as "Loosies." The latest in this line of new freebies for the fans is "Genocide," easily one of the most aggressive tracks that duo Slim Gravy and Paris Pershun have released to date.
"We're drawing a line between the music we make and the BS that Dallas is mostly known for," say A.Dd+, citing their inspiration for the track. "We represent a new wave of artists here, with more diversity and substance – and we're proud of that." And as bold as the statement is from the two rappers, the beat is with them step-for-step, a raucous affair full of grinding synths and lively vocal chops, that was produced by Brain Gang Blue and co-produced by Picnictyme. "King Blue just gave me a beat and he said, 'Make sure that you rock it'/ 'Bout a year ago, big bro gave us a key to the city, said, 'Here, ni**a, lock this bitch," raps Slim Gravy, "Mold with the old/ Grow with the new/ Ni**a die, pick a side/ Any two, gonna lose/ Gotta pick one!"
This time Cali-sized withproducer/emcee Rey Resurreccion. "The Season" is the lastest single off "Reluctant Star". Catch these two real soon as they have a collaborative effort in the works, along with Paulie Rhyme.

Wall Street is occupied. Your college degree is a laminated dustpan; now you need a Ph.D. to put holes in donuts. Becky with the million dollar Master's degree in education is teaching alright...teaching the new girl at the bar how to make Tequila Sunrises. So where does that put a former rap artist? At one point in time, I made a living doing what I loved (being a musician). Today, I'm being told to get a respectable haircut and dress "business casual" to do no business and casually answer phones. When Yale graduates can't find work, you know rappers whose careers went kaput are in trouble!
Gotta laugh to keep from crying...or launch a new search engine (MC Hammer)...or juice a woman for money to record a comeback album (Tim Dog). But whatever you do, don't fall into the dead end job world like I did. It's a cold, cold (albeit hilarious) world.
