New York, NY – (August 2011) – After an impressive victory over Nick Iannuzzi in his home state of Missouri that awarded him two national titles, champion boxer BJ Flores proved that it is possible to overcome the naysayers and make dreams become reality.

The Northwest based Liquid Assets Recordz rapper Easy McCoy (formerly known as Soul P), a close personal friend of Flores, is no stranger to adversity himself.  Growing up on the rough side of Seattle, it took several stints in jail and a relocation to Oregon before Easy got his musical career off the ground.  It is only fitting that Flores was recently featured in Easy McCoy's music video for "Say It Ain't So" – a song about rising above the people that hold us back.

Easy McCoy is an artist on the rise who recently caught the attention of AOL Music and will be premiering his new video for #IMONTHAT as the AOL Video of the Day on Monday, August 8th.  It will also be offered as a free download on Liquid Assets' website as a thank you to his fans for their continued support.  Flores and McCoy will be collaborating again in early August, making the most of a time when both careers are on the rise.

Pittsburgh emcee Jasiri X pays tribute to his elder and mentor on “Harry Belafonte”, produced by Wandering Worx labelmate DaiN. "He's the standard when it comes to artists using their fame and wealth to bring about social change," says Jasiri of Belafonte. "Mr. Belafonte will go down in history as a freedom fighter that was unafraid to risk his career to speak out on behalf of the poor and oppressed. I'm striving to live up to his great example."

With his solo debut From Baylon To Timbuk2 finally set to drop, Wu-Tang Clan affiliate Timbo King is unveiling one of the most anticipated tracks from the album, "High Ranking."  Featuring a jaw-droppping verse from underground kingpin R.A. The Rugged Man and a thumping instrumental from Wu-Tang beatsmith Bronze Nazareth, "High Ranking" is a strong reminder that Timbo's years-in-the-making debut will be well worth the wait. On the track, Timbo and R.A. take it back to the playground, trading "ya momma" jokes and creative insults over a horn-heavy instrumental.  Phony rappers beware.
