VA artist JASON (JASON804) is Letting us All Know He Means Business
You are now on the road to success!” says JASON as he enters the booth to record the very first song from the street album with Big Boyz Music, in which they’re all hoping to be one of the biggest releases at the beginning of the year. Road To Success is a highly energetic and savvy street album to set up the launch of JASON’s forth-coming album entitled Mind Of A Champion (M.O.A.C.) Everything from the cover design by Steve Santos of Esiness Design (www.esinessdesign.com) to the lyrics and beat selection speak to a purpose. The project includes original compositions from “The Big Boyz” as well as other household names you may have already familiarized yourself with, including Kanye West (Kinda Like A Big Deal, Power) where JASON conveys his cunningly gritty mic skills, and The Neptunes (I’m Good) where he exudes humility and evenly delivers a hardcore presence. JASON and Big Boyz Music continue to work hard to bring you a very complete and captivating release that you can enjoy and will want to listen to again and again!

Male or female, hiphop doesnt get much better than this.
Brooklyn's Jamaican born MC Gangalee has been on the grind for several years releasing a succession of mixtapes & EPs, but 2011 could be the year where this unbelievably talented artist steps up. With the completion of her studio album "The Black Pin Up" not far away, and the restructuring of her label, Gangalee has always earned props for writing & performing from the heart.
The two videos "Opulence / Hot 2.0" & "Pretty Girls" both draw on her hip hop and Jamaican influences, with the hard hitting message in Pretty Girls a throwback to the Lauryn Hill era
"Pretty Girls" is taken from her EP "Vintage Roots" and we've got some bangers below for you to download, including her track Get That Money Y'All ft Drake. Also be sure to check the original version of "Hot" also taken from "Vintage Roots".
