S-Dub a/k/a Shabaam Sahdeeq is pleased to release the M-Phazes produced single "Something About You", off his forthcoming album Keepers of the Lost Art, which is set to drop later this year. The single, which you can stream here, boasts the talents of the Cuban born singer/songwriter Ces, is produced by blap specialist M-Phazes. As former label-mates with Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Company Flow & Pharoahe Monch, S-Dub has been tied to a long history of independent success both as a solo artist and through his membership with the late nineties hip-hop collective, Polyrhythm Addicts. His effort on this single is consistent with the quality music that we've come to expect from S-Dub over the years, from classic's like "Arabian Nights" to bangers like the Nick Wiz produced "Freaky Flow".

Part 1 of the two part training series as Dru Ha readies himself for 2011's ING: New York City Marathon on November 6th. In this clip, Dru Ha explains why he is running, about "Run 2 Remember" NYC Alzheimers Association chapter team, and his experience training with celebrity trainer Mark Jenkins. Unfortunately due to Mark's busy schedule training celebrities such as Diddy, D'Angelo, & Mary J. Blige, he has to defer the training sessions with another "celebrity trainer" which was documented in Part 2 of this series.

The Legends of Hip Hop from!

Artist Justin BUA is proud to announce his newest book, The Legends of Hip-Hop (Harper Collins Design, an imprint of HarperCollins Book Publishers; November 8, 2011), where he pays homage to 50 of the greatest names in hip hop history. With a foreward by Chuck D, BUA uses portraiture to celebrate each individual's revolutionary contribution to the global phenomenon known as hip hop.

From Afrika Bambaataa, Queen Latifah, and LL Cool J, to Snoop Dogg, Jay-Z, and Eminem, BUA captures the spirit of both the unsung and iconic heroes who have shaped music, art, dance, fashion, even language and politics. Each portrait is accompanied by a personal essay that details each individual's impact—not only on cultural history, but also on BUA’s own life and work.

Unlike any other book, The Legends of Hip Hop comes not from an investigative academic, but from an authentic source who—as a native New Yorker—witnessed the birth and development of hip hop from a community movement to its explosion into a global industry.

Justin BUA attended NY's LaGuardia High School of Music & Performing Arts and Art Center College in CA, where he received a BFA. BUA has created art for the music, film, fashion, and entertainment industries, with clients like Warner Brothers, Comedy Central, MTV, Sony, and EA Sports. BUA's art sells at galleries worldwide as well as at retail giants like Target. Recent credits include art direction for Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's acclaimed film, "On the Shoulders of Giants," as well as the direction and hosting of Ovation TV's hit documentary "Walk this Way," about rapper DMC, of RUN-D.M.C. BUA lives in L.A., CA.
