DaVinci: A Fillmore Story from WEREHAUS.

In March 2010, DaVinci released The Day The Turf Stood Still, a truly striking debut album, and one that allowed listeners to share DaVinci's gaze as he watched his neighborhood, the historic Fillmore District in San Francisco, experience an overhaul due to impacts of gentrification and urban renewal. DaVinci's new EP, Feast Or Famine , released for free download late last month through his label, SWTBRDS, largely follows in those footsteps, while taking a broader look at the ills that affect – both good and bad – inner city communities across America."

Central to both projects is DaVinci's quest to find a voice that not only represents his own views, but also the struggle, pain, and celebration of those around him. And, inspired by the young rapper's work, Brian Chu and Austin Chu, collectively Werehaus.tv, set out to capture just that with their mini-documentary, "DaVinci: A Fillmore Story."

"Working on this project with SWTBRDS and DaVinci has been more than we could have asked for," explain Brian and Austin, noting that the project was their attempt to create, "an honest piece about the struggle to find oneself, and develop a voice that represents where one's from." Opening with an acapella take on a verse from previous single "D.R.E.A.M.," the mini-documentary chronicles DaVinci traveling throughout the city – home, the studio – as he speaks on how growing up in The Fillmore impacts his outlook on life, the struggle and care for others that permeates his music, and much more.

MC KHINGZ reps Seattle's southside to the fullest and unleashes his demons on the REL!G!ON-produced "Monster's Lib", the first single from the former gangster turned poet's new album Liberation Of The Monster.  Feeling boxed in by labels and expectations of fans and friends who tried to subtly direct him to a more spoken word bohemian feel, KHINGZ reacts with this visceral and at times painful album; a declaration that he will not be boxed in or defined by anything but his own actions or anyone but his own heart. Listen, digest and free your inner beast.

MP3: Daily Bread - "Night Time"

MP3: Daily Bread - "Night Time"

Courtesy Mello Music Group.

Night Time starts with an Apollo Brown styled bluesy, soul sample before kicking into a straight forward, solid drum knock backed by strings  - you know, the way we like our Apollo beats.  The gravel voiced Hassaan Mackey seems to stroll into the beat so even toned you know he's about to get raw with the story.  "Another case of that Saturday Night Fever / Color me a dreamer / Cause I be watching  hustlers in their Benzes and their beemers / Cuttin in the city streets or riding round with heaters / cause they don't plan on N***as in the fam trying to defeat em / blowin out freedom".  From there the story just gets grittier.  Apollo offers a nice sample based hook to compliment the narrative "always watching my back / after dark is when the drama start".
