New Jersey Rapper Newmoney Gets Nominated At 2011 UMAs For His Critically Acclaimed Mixtape "Just My Thoughts"

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Hip-Hop's next breakthrough artist Newmoney is excited to announce his nomination for the prestigious 2011 Underground Music Awards in the category "Best Underground Street Album" for his critically acclaimed project "Just My Thoughts".

"I'm honored to be nominated for 'Best Underground  Street Album'. I want to congratulate all the nominees and I want to thank everybody at the Underground Music Awards for giving underground artists a platform to be recognized for their hard work," stated the New Jersey rhymespitter, who is currently gearing up for the release of his upcoming mixtape "Ambitions Of A Writer". The project is hosted by DJ Don Demarco and exclusively produced by hit maker Jahlil Beats (credits: Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Meek Mill, Soulja Boy, Fabolous).

Newmoney spent his early years in Irvington, New Jersey, a small township of a little over 60,000 people in Essex County, but with a violent crime rate six times higher than the entire state. Located outside of Newark, the city was hit hard by the crack epidemic during the 1980s, the time Newmoney was born, and still struggles from the effects today. Irvington is also credited with producing some of Hip-Hop's most groundbreaking (Lords of the Underground), infamous (Tupac Shakur's “god brother” and Outlawz member Yaki Kadafi) and influential (Queen Latifah) recording acts.

Newmoney, who  grew up idolizing emcees like Jay-Z, Biggie, Big L, AZ, Redman, and DMX, is a true product of his environment. From the breakup of his family to multiple evictions and the traumatic death of his mother from cancer on Christmas morning, his life experiences have shaped the person and recording artist he is today.

Producer For The Weeknd Partners With Roach, Southern Hospitality For New Remix

Critical Praise for Roach Gigz:

"Here’s to the new age of rap. And Roach Gigz. Who is awesome." - The FADER

The Video:

Roach Gigz has kept fans plenty busy over the past few weeks. First came the "Stupid (Remix)," featuring Husalah and Lil B. Next, the release of Roach's debut EP, Bitch, I'm A Player, followed last week with the release of his video for "F A Chorus," shot and directed by Kreayshawn. Now, with more BIAP videos forthcoming, Roach has teamed up with the good folks over at Southern Hospitality, to take fans back a little, with a remix from Roachy Balboa 2 fan favorite "Got 'Em Like."

The remix, officially titled "Got 'Em Like (Styrofoam Cup Session)," comes courtesy of Canadian producer Zodiac, best known for his work producing for The Weeknd, including House Of Balloons favorites "What You Need," "The Party & The After Party," and "Loft Music." And his work remixing Roach proves just as enjoyable. Or as Southern Hospitality co-founder Davey Boy Smith puts it, "We didn't expect [Zodiac] to tap so deeply into [Roach Gigz'] very real love for under-the-counter cough mixture. But that's exactly what he did, in this gritty, overflowing, potent reinvention."
