PR: Cali Swag District "How to Do That" M-Bone Tribute
Rap group Cali Swag District, best known for the hit song "Teach Me How To Dougie," pay respect to fallen member Montae "M Bone" Talbert with a memorial tribute song "How To Do That." Talbert, aged 22, was a victim of a random drive-by shooting in his hometown of Inglewood, CA on the night of May 15, 2011. The Inglewood Police Department asks that anyone with information to come forward and call their homicide division at (310) 412-5246 or the 24-hour anonymous hotline number, (888) 41 CRIME, or (888) 412-7463.
"We gotta stay strong and keep our music going, keep our heads on right and just stay safe and stay off the streets." states C Smoove. "M Bone was the life and energy of our group. We'd have fun on stage because of him. We hope that fans will help us pay tribute to him by continuing to dance in M Bone's memory," adds Yung.
To honor of Talbert, Cali Swag District members C Smoove, Yung and JayAre each take a verse to recount their memories of Talbert. The tribute song samples the M Bone inspired line from their Dougie hit, "M Bone show these cats how to do that." The track was recorded in Inglewood, CA at Big Wy's studio, where they recorded most of their debut album The Kickback.
Park Street PR: Nightwalker - "Walkin At Night (Based On a True Story)"
Back in October I had the pleasure to introduce you to Nightwalker one of the dopest Emcee's to come of out New York, he has proven to be a force in Hip Hop that everyone is taking notice of from opening up for the Legendary Beatnuts to Nas & more. Recently adding to his success was Nightwalker's Engineering on Viper Records own Diabolic debut album "Liar & a Thief".
In a smart move, Nightwalker made the wise choice and signed with an amazing new Record Label that is pioneering in the Underground world known as RedPhone Records. Now under a new Label Nightwalker has done what most are to scared to do, release a new album with zero features or big names just to sell his music. Nightwalker knows what it takes to stand on his own in times where it's easy to fall lack luster to trends. Let's get to the most recent release "Walking at Night" was produced entirely by Nightwalker himself! Proving that he's true to his culture he creatively "took it back" by using an Ensoniq EPS 6 Plus (and old keyboard/sampler from 1990/91) for the fundamental process into making this album.
In addition to signing to a new Label, Releasing a new street album, Nightwalker will be on an exclusive West Coast Tour with Diabolic and the Lyrical Jesus himself Chino XL. Not one to wait around for projects, an EP featuring Nightwalker, Matt Maddox and Diabolic together known as "Avengers" with production by C-Lance (Enemy Soil) is set for a Summer release including a Comic Book followed by a European & US Tour!
"Walking at Night" will be available on CD, Digitally, and on Limited edition Vinyl! To get your copy go to www.redphonerecords.net .

May 2011 -- Having first arrived on the scene way back in 1992 with their lead single, "Psycho," b/w "Check It," Lords of the Underground, comprised of members Doitall, Mr. Funke and DJ Lord Jazz, are currently celebrating their highly commendable 20th! year in entertainment. To commemorate the triumphant anniversary, the trio from Newark, New Jersey, are in the midst of recording their fifth studio collection, and have even re-enlisted the legendary producer, DJ Marley Marl, responsible for some of their biggest hits-to-date, to assist on the still untitled project.
As a collective, L.O.T.U.G. initially came together in Raleigh, North Carolina, whilst attending Shaw University as undergraduate students. Their, now, multi-platinum, debut album, Here Come the Lords, which spawned three chart-toppers; the title track, "Funky Child" and their signature classic, "Chief Rocka," arrived in March '93.
A second LP Keepers of the Funk, although not quite as successful as its predecessor, appeared a little over a year and a half later, and still managed to land three songs; "Tic Toc," "What I'm After" and "Faith," positions on Billboard Magazine's Top Rap Singles Chart.
Despite lack of promotions, their next outing, Resurrection, was still met with critical acclaim. "Retaliate," "Take Dat," "Haters," "Excuse Me" and "Exodus," were the five offerings from the mostly positively reviewed set. House of Lords, their first recording in nearly a decade, was released in the summer of 2007.
"It's time, man!" Doitall announces emphatically. Expounding, he further relays, "We've toured the world, we've done our separate ventures, and, now, we go back to what brought us to the dance. This time, it's for not just us, but the fans as well."
