Latest Single From On Air Revisits Previous Fan Favorite

The Song:

It's pretty safe to say that there are thousands of songs that exist out there about love. And with each new one made, it becomes increasingly difficult for the next to stand out. For Kyle Rapps, currently prepping the release of his Air-sampling new mixtape, On Air, it's become pretty clear no such problems exist. The third single from the mixtape, "Love Love 2" follows in the footsteps of previous fan favorite "Love Love" and re-enlists the efforts of KRS-One and Homeboy Sandman for a track features each of the three emcees giving their own unique takes on love, all atop Nate G.'s triumphant synth chops and "love" vocal samples.

"KRS-One's verse talks about the love he gives to hip-hop culture," Kyle explains. "Then Homeboy Sandman speaks about the love that is found in the ghetto that the media doesn't ever really reflect." For Kyle's own verse, the Harlem-based emcee takes the opportunity to show love to those who may not even love themselves. "I speak to the crackhead, and tell him he a man too," raps Kyle, "Struggling, hustling. Muscling, striving, must win."

Kyle Rapp's On Air mixtape will be released for free download on August 29th. A week later, on September 6th, Kyle is inviting all New York-based fans out to celebrate with him at Southpaw in Brooklyn. The show, kicking off at 8pm, will be hosted by Homeboy Sandman, while DJ DP One will be spinning classic and contemporary hip-hop, funk, and soul throughout the evening. In addition to Kyle's headlining set, the show will feature performances from Y-Love & Diwon, Rasheed Chappell, Silent Knight, and Aaron Cohen, along with live burlesque performances by Calamity Chang. Kyle will also be using the occasion to premier the video for "Universe Traveler," On-Air's Talib Kweli-featuring lead single. Tickets for the show are $10.

On September 3rd, Kyle will be performing at this years New York leg of Rock The Bells, performing on the Grind Time Stage. Fans should continue to check, where additional details on Kyle's Rock The Bells performance will be announced going forward.

Up-N-Coming Emcee Warren Wint's Awaited Single Is Now Available On iTunes

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Emerging and multi-talented Hip-Hop artist Warren Wint officially announces the release of his long awaited single "One Man’s Trash". The single was produced by DJ Shakim for Shafu Entertainment and is now available on iTunes.

Warren Wint is an aspiring and independent New York songwriter and emcee, compared to the likes of Chicago’s own Lupe Fiasco. Known in the greater NY area for his witty wordplay, lyrical dexterity and riveting street flair, Warren Wint is quickly making a name for himself in the world of Hip-Hop and his electrifying single, "One Man's Trash", proves just that.

"The concept for the song plays off the infamous saying 'One man's trash is another man's treasure' -- it has a double meaning," explained Warren, who lists 2Pac, Kanye West, and Jay-Z as his influences. "It’s about when a guy finds that special girl and he is open on her, but he doesn't know she is the neighbourhood jump-off, so he finds himself bragging about her only to get shot down by his counterpart on how naive he is to women and their ways."

The stellar production on "One Man's Trash" coupled with Warren's poignant cadence, delivery and flow results into a dynamic song that is sure to be a hit.

The up-n-coming emcee currently released his debut mixtape "W.I.N.T.: Written In Native Tongue" download , which will be followed by his digital EP "Introducing Warren Wint".

Warren Wint is a true entertainer in every sense of the word, who has developed a solid fanbase in his hometown of New York. He is exploding on the underground Rap scene and is ready to start his journey to the top!

Lead Single From The Abandoned Lullaby Gets Remix Treatment from rj, Illvibe Collective

The Remix:

Two weeks ago, we got the first taste of Icebird, the new collaborative project from producer rjd2 and singer-songwriter Aaron Livingston, with the lead single from the duo's upcoming album, The Abandoned Lullaby. The song, "Going and Going. And Going," is pushed forward by rj's dynamic guitar- and drum-driven production, an instrumental mix that plays against Aaron's gritty, soul-filled vocals and witty lyrics.

Now, Icebird is excited to release two official remixes for the single, one helmed by rj and the other by Mr. Sonny James of the Illvibe Collective. "I always liked how 12 inch releases back in the '90s had multiple remixes of the same song," explains rj on his motivation behind the dual offering. "Fans could choose and debate, argue the different versions and which they liked more."

While the original was all soul, rj's remix kicks things off drastically different, with a bending synth line, eclectic percussion, and sample chops that build alongside a bevy of heavy drums for a rock-filled track that will likely remind fans of rj's work on the now classic Since We Last Spoke. For the second remix, Icebird reached out to Mr. Sonny James of the Illvibe Collective, who brought the track new life – and a bit of island flair. "The Illvibe remix does a great job to really re-envision the track in a dub style," remarks rj. "When that beat drops, it was the last thing I expected, but it's a great groove; the Hammond organ – it really makes sense with original."
