This guy just got back from shows in Palestine, three months in the Sahara, and he’s rocking one of Quincy Jones’ old suits in that Mint Tea video. He was part of Log Cabin, the '90s crew that included a young Murs and Eligh. He made his name in the L.A. underground scene on a song called “Farmer’s Market Of The Beast” where he rapped as a goat. He’s the real deal.

New Audio: Chuuwee & Max B "Money Make Me Feel Better" (Remix)
Now that Chuuwee’s Crown Me King mixtape has properly set the table for his official debut LP, Wild Style, Chuuwee is gearing up the promo machine and getting back to what he does best; make dope music. Wild Style can be summarized as pure 90s Hip Hop, where Chuuwee is taking the classic elements of the golden era with the look, sound and the feel and then applying them to the present day. Inspired by Gang Starr, A Tribe Called Quest, Big L, De La Soul with even hints of DMX, Wild Style promises to be Chuuwee’s break-out project, one that will showcase him as being a frontrunner lyricist from Hip-Hop’s new school; while also paying homage and respect to the great pioneers of the 1990’s. “Wild Style is the album that’s going to eradicate weak rap off the face of the map. It is the return of real Hip-Hop. It’s pure and it’s not me trying to re-make it. It’s not me telling you its 90s Hip-Hop; it is 90s Hip-Hop” says Chuuwee.
MP3/Video: Steven A. Clark x Mr. Familiar - "Chemistry"
To date, Steven A. Clark has released two singles from his forthcoming album, Fornication Under Consent Of The King, the Miami-based singer's second album in as many years. First came "Don't Have You," followed by "Lonely Roller," and with videos on the way for both and a June 11th release date that's fast approaching, Steven is excited to give fans a new, non-album single "Chemistry." For “Chemistry,” Steven teamed with frequent collaborators Mr. Familiar, who also helped co-produce Steven's 2011 album, Stripes. The original version of "Chemistry" was released as an instrumental in promotion for Mr. Familiar's own forthcoming EP, Time Traveler, and when Steven heard the track, he became inspired to add his own twist. "The original was so dope I had to write to it,” Steven notes, adding that the track inspired him to explore the laws of attraction. "Sometimes," he says, "you may not know what it is about someone you like. You can’t always expect it, but that’s ok – it’s just chemistry."
Accompanying the new track from Steven is the singer's latest webisode, "Brunch With Steven A. Clark." Shot by directors Oaklyn during Steven's recent trip to the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, the webisode finds Steven catching up with friends for a quick meal, before he takes a moment for himself by the waterfront to discuss his songwriting process.

On April 14, 1989 a new kind of soul was brought to this world to produce his own style of hip hop.
