MP3: Mr. Brady - "Get Choze" Feat. Diamond D and Blu
Mr. Brady Brings Together Old School And New School With Latest From Labor Of Love
While outside may feel like a winter wonderland, this next serving from Cali rapper Mr. Brady has a warm, laid back feel – one that harkens memories of past summer seasons – with "Get Choze," the latest single from Labor of Love, Brady's latest release on Clear Label Records. Produced by Brady, himself – Mr. Brady eschews rhyming on Labor Of Love, instead handling production duties for the entire album – the producer/rapper acquired the collaborative efforts of the legendary Diamond D and fellow west coast rapper Blu.
It was after a connection on MySpace between Brady and Diamond D that the track came to be, and with Brady's vision to bring the old school and new school together, Blu added the perfect final piece. "I wanted to bridge the gap between the O.G's like Diamond D and artists that I consider to be the future, like Blu," explains Brady. "Nobody is really doing that right now and making it sound right, so I wanted to do something different, something that I thought would sound right."
Hailing from San Diego, California, Mr. Brady is not new to the hip-hop game. Mr. Brady has worked with artists like Diamond D (producer of The Fugess and Mos Def), Killah Preist, Guilty Simpson, Blu, Evidence and more. He has toured around the globe including extended trips through Europe, Canada and the USA performing with such legends as Common, The Roots, Slum Village and Souls Of Mischief. After promoting himself and seeing his buzz-factor increase, Mr. Brady established the label Battle Axe Records in 1999. In 2003, Mr. Brady teamed up with the powerhouse group Deep Rooted, who signed to Clear Label Records. His latest solo album, Labor Of Love is available now.

Georgia Anne Muldrow - "VWETO" (An Instrumental Experience)
The eclectically talented Georgia Anne Muldrow released her latest project, VWETO – the album title means "gravity" in Swahili – exclusively on iTunes today with the worldwide release, both physical and digital, to follow on January 25, 2011. The album is a tour-de-force when it comes to musical exploration taking on influences from "fOnkrock" and HipHop and runs the gambit all the way down to Piano Space. Innovative and avant-garde, Muldrow's new album is a breath of fresh air as the songstress and producer continues to push musical boundaries.
To accompany the digital release of the instrumental project, Georgia Anne Muldrow is releasing her first single from the album. "fOnkRocker" goes in hard as the music mimics the tracks title by giving off a heavy dose of funked up base lines accompanied by a fierce Rock 'N' Roll vibe. The melodic track incorporates rolling beats – beats fit for both swank underground lounges and clubs. The track embodies the essence of what this West Coast artist has become so successful at: meshing together styles and creating a sound that is fresh and transcendent among any genre.
In a world made of plastic, Georgia Anne Muldrow breathes. Georgia radiates light into the west coast hip-hip scene with her vocal mixture of social revolution and raw street wisdom. Her choruses echo the voices of yesterday while her beats explore the cosmic sounds of tomorrow. Having already worked with the likes of Erykah Badu, Mos Def, and Madlib, Georgia found herself taking a well-deserved turn in the spotlight in 2010. Her all instrumental album, VWETO is available now on iTunes and worldwide on January 25, 2011.
