Video: Stranger Day - "Not Playin'"

 Shane Coble aka Stranger Day is no stranger to the party. If there's a gig somewhere in a city or back woods of North Carolina somewhere, you can count on this hell-raisin', whiskey-swiggin' emcee being the main event. Riding off the buzz of his mixtape “Young, Dumb & Dope” (which has amassed 10,000+ downloads), Stanger Day is readying his first collection of songs, Barstool Bounce.
Stranger Day rolls with crew Permanent Vacation, shutting down bars and clubs across the state, and one listen to Barstool Bounceexplains why.  Take the first track “Not Playin,’” Stanger Day’s personal favorite. “It’s theme of the record,” explains Stranger Day. “I don’t buy into labels [ie hipster hip-hop, underground, etc]. I make music on my terms and am not trying to fit into some category.”
But Stranger Day can keep the underground ethics of hip-hop on one track and rock a bounce beat too. On his ode to Southern rap “Moonwalking on the Sun,” producer EMYND creates a head-nodding beat that will have clubs goers shakin’ their booties, bounce style.
A product of the glorious 80s, Shane grew up a regular southern kid, listening to artists like from The Clash, Andre 3000 and Cash Money Millionares  to Company Flow and Hiero. “I loved punk rock, dirty south rap and the backpack underground stuff.”
Production on Barstool Bounce is shared by EMYND, a Philadelphia-based beat maker (Gucci Mane, Diplo, Lil B from The Pack, Finland's Top Billin crew, Them Jeans, Scottie B, Playboy Tre, G-Side and the Paper Route Gangstaz), and DJA, a Los Angeles based in house producer for Mad Decent producer & Co-producer for Diplo.  His production credits include M.I.A, Diplo, Major Lazer, NBA 2k9, GM Hummer, and more.

Video: The Milky Way f/ Chris Clarke - "Black Magic"

Multi-coastal lyricist Sum - whose Nobody Hole, The Lil Folk and Lone Wolf albums have gained him an international cult following - is leader of The Milky Way, an L.A.-based collective that specializes in a sound best described as post-millennial funk. On bass and keys is P.U.D.G.E., the NYC producer/emcee who made his name at L.A.'s Low End Theory weekly, another member of a lineup that comprises college buddies, play cousins, childhood friends and even a married couple. Also on keys is Computer Jay, who first struck out with a contribution on ArtDontSleep's From LA With Love compilation. X-Man, X-Ro, Taurus Hamilton, DJ Cee Brown, Vocabutrois & Lil Mis round out this gathering of stars. Here they present the video to the title track of their Black Magic EP. "This song is unique because it's the first full song we composed from scratch as The Milky Way, two summers ago," says Sum. "Everything else we'd done up to that was just rehashes of old material. It was the clear winner for our first video, everybody's involved. We brought along talented family, Chris Clarke kickin in the door for us and Chicago's own Airon Azure on the chorus. Pure energy." Director and bandmember Nzinga Kadalie Kemp says "We wanted it to be simple but we wanted it to rock out -- I think we achieved our goal. It's milky." The song is a celebration of a newfound Milky Way sound, and the power of attraction.

Madchild will unleash his new solo album “Dope Sick” on August 2nd, 2011 on Suburban Noize/Battle Axe Records.
“For the last eight months, my main focus has been to become the best emcee I can be. Battling truly exemplifies the spirit of hip-hop just like beatboxing, DJing or graffiti art. I can’t think of a better way to challenge myself than to step into today's battle arena and compete against some of the best talent from all over the world at this year’s World Domination event,” commented Madchild. “The last time I competed in a battle was when I was inducted into the Rock Steady Crew and in order to embrace that side of myself, I felt it was important to really immerse myself in the culture of hip-hop. When I agreed to participate in World Domination Rap Battle, they told me they could make my match just a promotional battle, but I told them I wanted this to be a judged competition like any other real battle.”
The KOTD World Domination Rap Battle is one of the largest battle rap competitions in the world. The event will feature battle rappers from all over the globe including the UK, Australia, Philippines, Ireland and the United States of America.
