MP3: R. City a/k/a Rock City - "P*ssy Monster"


From Nancy B:

MP3: R. City a/k/a Rock City - "P*ssy Monster"

Atlanta, GA - See, this is why I love Rock City (R. City.) They can write a song like "Man Down" for Rihanna and still make songs like this, "Pussy Monster" ("Cookie Monster" for the clean of mind), for themselves. Remember the "Looking Ass Boy" song/video? Well, this song is reminiscent of that to me and I can imagine the remixes that are likely to pop up for it everywhere. Produced by FKi, this song is a sure-fire (strip) club hit. Download it, put it in your iPod, but don't get caught singing it at work.

The song debuted yesterday, courtesy of DJ Green Lantern, who will host the guys' upcoming street album, "Free At Last" along with V103 star jock, DJ Greg Street. The tape should drop in early August. Stand by for date and tracklisting.

Video: Damon Russell Talks About His Arrest Filming 'Snow On Tha Bluff'


From DJ Smallz:

Video: Damon Russell Talks About His Arrest Filming 'Snow On Tha Bluff'

Damon Russell Talks About His Arrest Filming 'Snow On Tha Bluff' from DJ Smallz.

Damon Russell, former producer for 'The First 48', reflects on getting arrested for the first time in his life, while directing & filming 'Snow On Tha Bluff', an indy flick recently featured in the 2011 Atlanta Film Festival.

'Snow On Tha Bluff' is the story of, Atlanta robbery boy and crack dealer, Curtis Snow who steals a camera from some college kids in a dope deal and begins documenting his life. At first, its business as usual for Curt. He robs dope boys, he runs from the cops, and he sells drugs, all while trying to provide for his baby momma and 2-year-old son. But when one of the drug dealers he ripped off comes back for revenge, things in Curtis life spirals out of control.

Video: Caktuz - "Still N the Hood: A Short Massacre"


From AMAS Multi-Media:

Video: Caktuz - "Still N the Hood: A Short Massacre"

North Carolina rapper  Caktuz drops his new long form video Still N The Hood: A Short Massacre with indie singer TreZure Empire. The gritty video was shot on location in New York and North Carolina, and includes a violently-disturbing montage of footage from a long lost race riot known as the “Greensboro Masacre.”

The Greensboro massacre occurred on November 3, 1979 in Greensboro, North Carolina. Five Anti-Klan protest marchers were shot and killed by members of the Ku Klux Klan and the American Nazi Party. Most of the armed confrontation was filmed by four local news camera crews.

Caktuz & TreZure remix an old Nina Simone classic “Feelin’ Good” over Method Man & mary J Blige’s “All I Need” while random shots of “the hood” wiz by in this fast pace 7 minute music video. Directed by Caktuz, the video can only be viewed at his website www.caktuztree.com or below.

MP3: Dada - "It's a Shame"

MP3: Dada - "It's a Shame"

Great news to announce: I would like to report that all the doubts and speculation about HipHop being dead is not only over-hyped, but downright untrue. All who doubt this have the luxury of hopping on the Long Island Railroad and get off at the Central Islip stop and hear the streets scream Don Dada.

Raised in the "Six Three Slums", Don Dada has been a full force in the versatility category. With tracks ranging from "Be Free" to "F*ck You", no topic is left unturned. With an arsenal of hard bars and various instrumental mixtapes, Don Dada breaks into wordsmith mode and lays the schematics for future emcees and hip hop listeners both to come.

With his crew G.N.D also known as "Good Never Dies"; they have made a respectable name for themselves throughout the island. Most of Dada's attributes are credited from his dedication to freestyling and "writing as you go" for over 8 years now.

For the most Dada is focused on his plan of various innovative tracks, and sticking out like a sore thumb from the work the industry dishes out. Its not uncommon to hear his work bumping out of systems cars, at live events or out of headphones out on the train somewhere, oh btw get your ticket out...the conductor is coming.
