Kingston, Jamaica resident Nomad Carlos presents the Board-directed music video for his Natural High Muzik-produced new single "As Real As It Gets". Born in Miami and raised in Kingston from the age of 5, Carlos has dropped several albums and performed relentlessly in Jamaica, proudly flying the flag for hip-hop in a country dominated by dancehall and reggae.
“This is an ongoing struggle I go through in my own country," he says. "Gatekeepers to the music industry turn a blind eye to the local Hip Hop community. But I think I have the ability to give a new outlook within the content of Hip Hop music, as I have lived a different life in Jamaica.” Early this year, Nomad released Live From Yard, hosted by DJ Ill Will & DJ Rockstar. Carlos' next mixtape, Me Against The Grain, is set for a fall release.

Next week, on September 18th, rapper Double A.B. and producer Dub Sonata will release their new album, Media Showers, via Man Bites Dog Records. While the duo has plans to release a new video from the album this week, for the song "Sunset" featuring Cannibal Ox and David Kiss, the rapper and producer, both being New York City natives, have decided to release a new, non-album track in commemoration of the tragedies of September 11, 2001.
The song is called "Outta Order," and inspiration, says Double A.B., came from "the misinformation that was spread to the public on such a hot-button issue." With the song, then, A.B. offers an alternate take on the day's events, using Dub Sonata's mournful, string-driven instrumental as he raps, "Look up in the sky: it's a bird, it's a plane/ It's a building, burning in flames/ Wouldn't trade with the world, now the world's gonna trade/ A few soldier's lives to put yours in the grave."
A.B. knows that offering an alternative viewpoint on the attacks may prove unpopular, but with "Outta Order, he says, A.B. wants to let listeners know that it's important to be independent in forming one's own opinions. "Always do your own supplemental research," says A.B., "and never blindly trust your government to have your best interests at heart."
