It's been a busy year for A-Wax. With the release of his album, Everybody Loves Me: Chapter I earlier this summer and the recent founding of his new label, Pie-Rx Recordz, the West Coast rapper has been hard at work. Just last week, A-Wax released his latest mixtape, Pie-Rx Muzik, and the tape has been well received, including a co-sign from trendsetting London website Southern Hospitality, which presented the project.

It’s been a long road from ‘rags to riches’ for Englewood emcee, H2 aka Jimmy Blue Eyes. Along the way he’s experienced personal hardships and triumphs that have shaped him lyrically. Like the meaningful tattoos inked all over his body, his forthcoming release, Rap Heals All Wounds to be released on Rags2Riches Entertainment, features several personal songs like “Lonely,” “Love Don’t Live Here,” “Ears Open,” which tell of H2’s journey from the rags to riches.
While many of the songs on the release are club bangas like his latest single Watch Yo Bitch, he also reveals a charming side for the ladies on "Latest."

Coming on the heels of a prolific 2012, which included a 45-city tour with Mac Miller in the first half of 2012 and a recently completed West Coast run with Pac Div in the fall of 2012 and becoming a full-fledged member of Curren$y’s Jet Life crew, Sir Michael Rocks took the music world by storm with the advanced and mature sound found on his stellar Lap of Lux mixtape as he continues to show why he is one of Hip-Hop’s top emerging talents.
Lap Of Lux has been featured in XXL Magazine, Wall Street Journal, MTV, Playboy and a virtual who’s who of A-List Print magazine, net sites and blogs and even became a “Trending Topic” on Twitter. With over 150K downloads alone on Datpiff.com (where it was also the top download performer for the month of August 2012) Mikey also premiered videos from the project with esteemed outlets such as Fader.com, Complex.com and MTV (who premiered the fan-favorite “Great,” which also featured Mac Miller & Casey Veggies).
Just as he did with his break-out solo mixtape, Premier Politics, Sir Michael Rocks is releasing a revamped and entirely new companion piece to Lap Of Lux; Lap Of Lux 1.5, which features collaborations with Harry Fraud, his Cool Kid brethren Chuck Inglish and Cardo.
In addition to the release of Lap Of Lux 1.5 today, Sir Michael Rocks will also be releasing a new video for another Lap Of Lux standout, “Reservations,” which features G.O.O.D. Music signee Teyena Taylor and will be exclusively premiered by MTV.

Both have continued to put out music together and separately, with Deedot engineering and producing for national Hip Hop, Reggae, and Pop artists and Paulie Rhyme working with the likes of Prince Po, Mick Boogie, The Bangerz, Nomak, and Tofubeats.
