Oxnard, CA native and frequent Madlib collaborator Dudley Perkins is back again with an hour-long documentary, Interplanetary Peace Talks 2012 A.U., detailing his career, the man behind the music, spirituality and much more.
Produced by Xylophone Films, during the documentary Dudley explains the confusion behind his Declaime moniker, and how his real name, Dudley Perkins, actually became his alter ego. "The name Declaime stuck to the point where a lot of people thought that was my real name," explains Dudley. "So when I told them my name was Dudley they thought I was playing a joke on them, so it turns out Dudley Perkins became the alter ego!"

One of HipHop's most anticipated prospects returns with the follow up single from his debut LP "Pirate Radio Star". "Top Of The World" is a street anthem where Rock Mecca uses cinematic imagery to tell the tale of the rise and the fall and the trappings of fame. The B-side "Crown Fires", is a certified banger and rebel music at its finest.
Last week I serviced out the MP3 to Marcus Manchild's "Cameras" freestyle. One XXL 2012 Freshmen list nomination later, here is the video. Just one reason this Freshmen list underdog deserves real consideration in my opinion.
