MP3: Frank Ocean & Soulbrotha - "More Songs for Women"

From Soulbrotha:

MP3: Frank Ocean & Soulbrotha - "More Songs for Women"

By now I'm sure you must've heard about Odd Future except you were under a cave or like me almost buried under all of life's other demands and responsibilities. Enter - Frank Ocean, the group's erstwhile crooner whose record/mixtape - "Nostalgia, Ultra" has been critically acclaimed by everyone, I'm sure even you to some degree and deservedly so.
I decided to take on this track off the tape, "Songs For Women" because I really dug the angle/message Frank Ocean was coming from and I felt I could expand upon those ideas and hopefully shed some more light into the relationship between the impact of women on male behavior in general every day life.
This led to, "More Songs For Women" which I have the good pleasure of sharing it with you. See song, cover pic and lyrics attached.

PR: TonyAs 'Introducing TonyAs - The Mini EP'

From Park Street PR:

TonyAs 'Introducing TonyAs - The Mini EP'

Artist: TonyAs
Title: 'Introducing TonyAs - The Mini EP'


01 - Back Into My Groove
02 - Lovin It
03 - Real Money (Radio Version)

Download Link: .

TonyAs describes himself as an artist that has evolved over time, inspired by many and has now ultimately come into his own. The art started as a musician- Rapper turned Singer but TonyAs has also embraced his other passion- writing (as a song writing and feature writer). Formerly known as theSaint- TonyAs has taken it one step further opting to strip it bare, go back to basics, whereas theSaint was a straight talking hiphop artist, TonyAs the musician has embraced other influences and as well as rapping- also sings, adding another dimension to his works.

As a musician the style is charismatic, easy listening emotional type music, in his own words 'he wants people listening to be able to feel what he's saying- to empathise, whether having experienced it or witnessed the content of his verses'. Sound wise it's fundamentally hiphop- though his evolution as an artist has lead to incorporations of Reggae, Soul, Funk and other such genres. Lyrics are still his forte if you like, and he prides himself on being a vivid and lyricist.

2011 promises to be an interesting year, the SexDrugsPoetry brand grows from strength to strength, there's the music, the 'Y Is It' articles and videos that TonyAs himself produces. 2011 will see the release of his 'Introducing TonyAs' project. Singles to look out for 'Back into my groove', 'Real money' and 'Loving it'.
