Slaine Releases Video For ‘99 Bottles’ Directed By Danny Boy From House Of Pain/La Coka Nostra
*** Boston rapper Slaine, of the rap super group, La Coka Nostra, has released his video for the track “99 Bottles” online at http://www.mtvu.com/music/the-freshmen/week-of-11-8-10/#more-30943. The track is the lead single from Slaine’s upcoming solo debut ,"A World With No Skies", which is scheduled for release in early 2011 through Suburban Noize.
"’99 Bottles’ is basically a bar room brawl anthem that has a throwback sound to the era where hip-hop was rowdy and fun at the same time,” commented Slaine. “I was not only influenced by House of Pain and Cypress Hill, but now I am kind of a part of that lineage in the hip-hop family tree. This joint was kind of a tip of the cap to them with my own rhyme style and personality on it. I don’t like club songs, when I want to party and get bent, this is what it sounds like.”
Slaine will join the Kottonmouth Kings and Big B on the second leg of the Party Monsters Tour beginning November 13th in Hollywood, CA at The Key Club.
SLAINE TOUR DATES: Nov 13 - West Hollywood, CA @ The Key Club Nov 16 - Chico, CA @ Senator Theater Nov 17 - Portland, OR @ Wonder Ballroom Nov 18 - Seattle, WA @ The Showbox Nov 19 - Spokane, WA @ Knitting Factory Spokane Nov 20 - Boise, ID @ Knitting Factory Boise Nov 21 - Missoula, MT @ Wilma Theater Nov 23 - Englewood, CO @ Gothic Theatre Nov 24 - Salt Lake City, UT @ In The Venue Nov 26 - Las Vegas, NV @ House of Blues Las Vegas Nov 27 - Reno, NV @ Knitting Factory
It’s Veterans Day and DTR45 wants to salute all the men and women who have tirelessly fought for and continue to serve this country.
Billy Drease Williams is showing his deference with the release of a new single. So Cold (Salute) is a different kind of hip-hop song. It shouldn’t be. It’s time the airwaves were filled with lyrics that reveal and resist what our brothers and sisters are being asked to do in our country’s name. Listen to it HERE.
Hear it in your mind and feel it in your soul.
We’ve been at war in Iraq and Afghanistan for nearly a decade now. The time to speak up and take action has come and gone, yet the need for activism and voice is still necessary given today's political climate. We have to think, listen, act and salute. Billy does this by threading his stirring sentiments through an equally stirring speech given by Mike Prysner of Iraq Veterans Against the War. The result is a unique song with a sound and message that resonates on many levels. For Billy, there are 365 Veterans Days a year. Today, take the time to hear why.
