Nu-Mark works with two MCs he’s long admired for the first 10” installment. With Bumpy Knuckles on “Dumpin Em All, ” Nu-Mark “was ready to man the board and record his vocals but he punched in his own vocals with a controller inside the vocal booth. This is the most prepared and underestimated MC I've worked with to date.” Large Professor is featured on “When You Sleep.”
BIO-"The truth is. I’m real ill try even though I may never get the deal." These are words from j.r. a rapper that comes from the bottom of Louisiana. Ever since 12 he's been writing rhymes with great wit, truth and style. Influenced by the New Orleans hip hop (big boy records and etc) he's been doing shows around and outside some parts of New Orleans delivering heavy emotions wit a touch of humor at his shows. He now pushes his second mixtape witch is called god of grind 2: search for king hustle which is sure to give him the shine he deserves.
PR: Jay-Z Vs. Lana Del Rey (Scott Melker Remix) + THE RUB
Courtesy Scott Melker.
Since everyone is on the Lana Del Rey bandwagon, I figured it was time to rework one of her tracks... I posted it publicly yesterday, and its been getting a ton of great feedback. Its presently number 5 on the hypem twitter popular chart, and 13 on the main popular chart. So obviously any blog love, facebook shares, tweets and "hearts" on hypem.com are much appreciated. It's a "mashup"/remix of Jay-Z's "Dirt Off Your Shoulders," Lana's "Born To Die, Jamie Foxx's and Rick Ross's "Living Better Now," Ice Cube's "I Rep The West," and some self-produced elements.
Miami-native Mac Soto continues his musical display by covering Katy Perry's "Firework," giving the song an indie-pop, synth flavor with crisp, soulful vocals. He prides himself in making songs with a laid-back mentality that refuses to take itself too seriously. He is currently working on an upcoming collaborative project with Parable, titled Parable vs. Mac Soto. Stay tuned for more news on their Facebook page, and catch more of Mac Soto's solo releases on Tumblr.
