Video: Kero One - "Shortcuts" (#BanksyInspired)

Just a few days after the release of his highly anticipated 4th album, Color Theory, Kero One drops the MV for Shortcuts, a self-produced single featuring Maryland native, Sam Ock.

Directed by Ross Ching, the video tells the story of 2 people (Ock and Yuri Tag, of Kaba Modern) whose lives are changed as an antagonist, played by Kero One, eventually uses his street art in a very mysterious way.

As an ex- graffiti artist, it seems fitting that Kero One would pay homage to his early street art days with throw back references from the 80's hiphop classic Beatstreet as well as legendary NY street artist Keith Haring. Watch to see how Kero One ultimately has a change of heart and alters the lives of Sam and Yuri.

Video: The Black Opera Signs w/ Mello Music Group

The independent collective, comprised of intellectuals, musicians, creators, artists and agents known as The Black Opera launched its mission last year armed with audio and video demonstrations. To our surprise, this secret society of creatives extended an honorable invitation to US. After listening intensely for the past year, Mello Music Group decided to join The Black Opera – signing them to a multi-album deal and issuing a physical edition of “EnterMission.” August 28th on CD and September 25th on vinyl to add to the archives.  The Black Opera issued the following statement about the signing:

"The Black Opera is not solely a musical outfit, music is only one aspect that represents THE BLACK OP: ERA. But, when it was time for The Black Opera to get their Musical Movement to ears of the future, they mapped out a plan. They knew that the Third and Final Endstallment of The Black Op Era: I; "Libretto: Of King Legend", would be the Beginning of something special. Special enough to enlist a company worthy of joining forces with, that company is Mello Music Group.

Both sides decided to join forces in order to advance to their own vision and to assist the vision of their partner. This partnership stems from mutual admiration and appreciation of what each had done on their own. This marks the Beginning of a New Era for both Movements, as ONE.

WE: Will. NOT: Stop.

In addition, TBO prepared a visual presentation of “The Magician” asking “Is Perception KING or QUEEN? Or, a blurred line in between? That line can sometimes best be defined as "MAGIC". The art of magic is displayed by slight of hand, and by natural forces being influenced by mysterious powers. In this video demonstration for "The Magician" the mystery remains, but the veil is slightly lowered.
The Opera is still Black, but this track brings new hints of sound in color. "The Magician" is a modern day vintage style mini-movie with a realistic portrayal of what happens when "too much, too soon" and "too little, too late" collide on the same track in a relationship. Join The Black Opera for this black tie affair and SPREAD THE WARNING.

PR: SonReal Announces Release Date & Free Song DL

(New York, NY) Fresh off the successful release of his mixtape, Words I said, Canadian Rapper and MC SonReal is gearing up to debut Good News, his newest album destined to turn heads in the US and solidify SonReal as one of the industries up and comers. The album is the result of creative collaboration with producers including: Arthur McArthur (Drake, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Tyga), Chin Injeti (Eminem, Dr Dre) and Rich Kidd (Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Electronica, Busta Rhymes). The Album also features verses from such artists as, Saigon, Emilio Rojas, Rapper Pooh of Little Brother and more.


Breaking into the scene in 2008 with his debut mixtape, Good Morning, SonReal carefully laid the foundation for his soon to be burgeoning career. The tape paved the way for the funky, innovative feel good 2009 project The Stroll. Followed by The LightYear Mixtape in 2010, and Where’s Waldo? in 2011, SonReal garnered incredible accolades including two VideoFACT awards, a spot on Much Music’s Top 15 videos of 2011 and a nomination for Single of the Year for “Already There” at the 2011 Stylus Awards alongside Drake and Kardinal Offishall.
