The young up and coming artist from Boston, Shizzie decided to name his project "#Redink" for two reasons.
First, it is his favorite color, but second and more importantly he views himself as the correction to what is wrong with music today. Every bar spit was written as if he wrote a final essay in red. Being heavily influenced by West Coast sounds, Shizzie decided to bring out West Coast style production for this album for his East Coast delivary. "#Redink" will be released on February 1st and is sure to be a classic as well as a trending topic!

King Joker is a super talented rap artist with an incredible flow hailing from New Orleans. He has overcome more than his share of life’s hurdles and managed to put all of that heartache, pain and suffering into his music. His new song, “I Know What Ima Do” featuring Siah and directed by Joe Blast is the latest masterpiece. This song is typical of the barrage of hits that you can expect to hear from King Joker this year.
The Newark by way of Philly producer dRes shows and proves that his freshman effort has a seasoned sound with his debut release, Wild Produce.

Fresh off of the release of The Scrimmage, TUGE has vowed to hit the net hard in 2012. Having already leaked two joints this year thus far, the NY spitter continues to feed his growing fan-base with this week's "The Auction." Felix Snow's instrumenal provides the perfect off-kilter bounce to suit TUGE's bouncy flow, witty wordplay and clever catch phrases on this departure from the duo's traditional sound. If you aren't a hustler, you might need some translation from your local supplier. Either way, embrace this Hustler's Anthem, and make sure your turn it up LOUD (no pun intended). A MUST HEAR RECORD!
