Artist: The Aztext / E-Train Title: Who Cares If We’re Dope? - Vol 1 Label: Elevated Press Records Catalog #: EPR013 Released: November 2010
The Aztext have been making moves on the independent tip for a while now. They have now teamed up with long time music affiliates Elevated Press to bring us a series of EP’s entitled ‘Who Cares If We’re Dope’. Each EP will feature beats from a different producer, giving each installment a unique sound of it’s own. For their first volume The Aztext team up with Bay Area soul slinger E-Train.
The EP opens up with an animated discourse on the state of hip-hop and their own perspective on being an emcee in 2010. ‘Time is Just A Glare’ features counter part Wombaticus Rex who adds a nice dynamic to this classic boom bap track. E-Train provides a fitting cut chorus, sampling Common to solidify the theme.
‘Just Like That’ slams in next to pick the energy up a few notches. The classic back and forth you hear between Learic and Pro displays the duo’s strength. E-Train’s beat literally tears the place down!
Next we hear ‘Rainy Day’. Let’s face it, sometimes we ain’t feeling too hot. The constant pressures of the day-to-day hustle while trying to maintain your art and dream can be demanding. That’s where this song comes in!
Closing out the EP is ‘Waiting’. Pro represents on the solo tip for this one. A double time rhyme scheme over this slow, soulful, and bouncy beat really displays Pro’s skill. The tune again shows the crew’s ability to execute a concept. Don’t sleep!

The album’s debut single “Make Ya Girl” premiered on Rhythmic Contemporary Hit Radio, and is currently gaining momentum across the country. The new video for “Make Ya Girl” (directed by BLKDMNDS) has reached over 186,000 views on the world’s largest video-sharing website.
To commemorate the release of their album, The Ranger$ are inviting their fans to join them for a special album release celebration at Skate Depot in Cerritos, CA.

Just wanted to let you know that I put up a small video for "Sorry I'm Late". No, there's no home video footage or anything fancy like in other trailers. It's just the individual song artworks (each song has it's own) and samples of all the songs. There's also a preview of "All I Got to Give" ft. Marsha Ambrosius - the acoustic version! :)
The album will be released November 16th, but if you order from FatBeats.com, they will ship the CD out early. Those who pre-order will receive it in time for our original Nov. 2nd release date. We can REALLY use some more pre-orders --- it'll help us secure more marketing funds.
The daily struggle to reach success can be a sentimental journey filled with agony and solace. Armageddon guides us on this passage of life with his latest single "Get Yours." This time he takes on a different route than his prior single "It's Over." As the keys lead in, the melody captures a new sentiment, evoking Armageddon to maintain his lyrical quality with a rare finesse. Filmed in the Bronx, NIIM the Dream Productions visually captures Armageddon's description dialogue for the official music video. This single is featured on Armageddon's upcoming EP The Journal Vol. 1: Rebirth on Geddy Music/ SoFlo Entertainment.
