From Audible Treats:

MP3: Hieroglyphics - "Exciting"

Bay-Area Supergroup Releases New Single In Conjunction With Akomplice Collaboration

The Song:

With the legendary Hieroglyphics crew's West Coast Tour, presented by Marvel vs. Capcom 3 well underway and going well, the Bay-Area supergroup are releasing a new song "Exciting" in conjunction with a Hiero-inspired hooded varsity jacket from Akomplice Clothing. Taking their already popular hooded varsity jacket, Akomplice has created a unique version bearing both the Hiero and Akomplice logo. Creating the original track "Exciting" just for the occasion, the collaboration shows off the talents of what both parties do best.

This no-holds-barred track points out the flaws of other crews by showing off the lyrical word play of the legendary Hiero crew. The mix of celebratory horns and shimmering guitar riffs provide the perfect backdrop as Opio kicks things off with, "Cause I'm exciting/ Pleasurable but listening I'm only tryna tell you what your records keep on missing/ I'm only tryna help out your crew/ It really doesn’t matter cause you don’t know what your doing." The track is the Hiero crew at its best and a glimpse into what to expect in 2011.

Hiero will be embarking on their final three stops on a six-date West Coast tour, presented by Marvel's Marvel vs. Capcom 3.

PR: Saigon Helps the Homeless in NYC


From Mitchell Dudley:

Saigon Helps the Homeless in NYC

The Yardfather recently lent a helping hand to his New York community.

Brooklyn, New York emcee Saigon has recently been volunteering at Manhattan's Bowery Mission, to ensure that the homeless are warm this cold winter.

On the horizon of releasing his highly-anticipated studio debut, The Greatest Story Never Told on Suburban Noize Records, Just Blaze's longtime protégé distributed blankets at the mission where fellow Hip Hop acts like KRS-One have previously been involved.

“Me and some friends of mine, the Ahuja's that own a garment manufacturing company, took to the very cold streets of New York City over these past couple of nights to hand out warm blankets to help the homeless stay warm,” commented Saigon in a label press release. “We covered Port Authority, Penn Station and the Bowery Mission Homeless shelter handing out over a hundred blankets. I did it because I had a little down time after finishing up my album and my friends, the Aluhja's, had some extra blankets so we decided to go hand them out to the homeless. If we can prevent one person from freezing to death out there on the streets, that makes everything worth it. I wish more Hip Hop artists would step up and help give something back to their communities. If everyone used the power they have to lend a helping hand, hopefully it would inspire others to do the same.”

MP3: The Left - "The Melody"


From Mello Music Group:

MP3: The Left - "The Melody"

Detroit's Apollo Brown, Journalist 103, & DJ Soko Release a Change of Pace for Listeners
 
Detroit group The Left, comprised of producer Apollo Brown, DJ Soko, and Journalist 103, whose album Gas Mask took many honors (including placement on DJ Premier's Best of 2010 List)  at the end of 2010 with it's hard hitting album "Gas Mask", is back at it, releasing another single entitled "The Melody".

The track leads off with a soul sample urging liteners to "just listen to the melody" before the drums kick in and strings wistfully announce The Left.  Journalist 103 begins unraveling a tale of devotion and love while explaining the hardships faced trying to maintain an art, a career, and a relationship. "When the world starts to rain and thunder / You the bridge of support that I go and seek shelter under / From cold winters to the hot summer's / You're the love that I cherish indeed it aint no need to wonder."  The song operates on many levels both literally and metaphorically while it continues it's melodic swing and Journalist details his blessings even in the apparent midst of strife.

You can download the new single from The Left "The Melody"here: http://mellomusicgroup.bandcamp.com/track/the-melody .
 
The Album:

A new classic from producer Apollo Brown who composes a smokey, rust riddled trip through the soul of Detroit. A lush sonic cityscape that layers piano over haunting samples and pits Journalist 103s narrative word play against DJ SoKo's cuts. Hailed by OkayPlayer as "A Masterpiece", given "Album of the Year" by Eric of Bloggerhouse, The Left is the sound of Detroit and along for the ride are Guilty Simpson, Finale, MarvWon, Paradime, Invincible, Hassaan Mackey, Kool G Rap, Frank West and Mu. Welcome Back.
