MP3: Andre Nickatina - "Tell Me She's A Hoe" + "Bounce (Rack City)"
Courtesy Audible Treats.
(March 2, 2012 - Brooklyn, NY) Bay Area legend Andre Nickatina is excited to announce his forthcoming national tour, The Where's My Money Tour, featuring openers Fashawn and MUMBLS. Next month, to coincide with the tour, Nickatina will release his similarly titled new mixtape, Where's My Money?, and to kick-start that release Andre is leaking two new songs today, "Tell Me She's A Hoe" and "Bounce (Rack City)."
The Where's My Money Tour, featuring opening sets from Fashawn and MUMBLS, will kick off April 4th in New York City, New York, running 32 dates through April and May, before wrapping on May 26th, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Additional shows are currently being scheduled and will be announced in the coming weeks. For Andre, a true veteran of the road, each tour brings something new and with The Where's My Money Tour, he's excited to be hitting some new cities and venues. "This tour gives me a chance to hit cities and states I haven't been to yet and to establish a foundation in those areas," explains Andre. "Expanding is always a good thing, so it's good to be in this position right now."
To celebrate the tour, Nickatina will also release a new mixtape in the coming weeks. The project, aptly titled Where's My Money?, clocks in at 18 tracks with production largely handled by recent collaborators Static Jon and Nima Fadavi. The lead single, "Tell Me She's A Hoe," kicks off with a flip of the classic Zapp & Roger track "More Bounce To The Ounce," flipping back and forth between funk- and soul-driven samples, as Nickatina laces the track with rapid fire flows, touching on the list of his time-tested favorite topics: drugs, money, and women.
Get your copy of my latest album “Soul Eater” The third album From Deejay Producer and Label Owner Black Panther. Black Panther has worked with Dead Prez, Immortal Technique, Mr. Cheeks, C Rayz Walz, Maya Azucena and more…
Black Panther - Anyone that knows me and the albums I've created "The Darkest Night Ever!!!"and "My Eternal winter "knows I do conceptual albums with central themes And "The Soul Eater" is no different. It has a central figure (John Smith) he leads a very boring life he tries to escape from. He works at an office job, and finds that his only escape is when he happens upon this talent/ curse. When falls asleep he creeps into the dreams of others and lives their lives to its fullest, but finds out that in order for him to occupy their life the can no longer exist, and all their fears, loves loss becomes a part of his own memories and eventually drives him insane. Every song is another life he has stolen and creates a border picture of the lives he's stolen and the darker side of his own.
Next, DJ DN3 has been posting video updates on his Facebook, so check those out. Let's see: Roqy TyRaiD has been kicked out and banned from Wal-Mart....the shows have been amazing, and in Louisville right now, we're in the middle of a tornado warning. Adventures!

According to WSMV 4 in Nashville, a woman riding passenger with Young Buck was shot today, and the details get more unnerving the deeper into it you go. Apparently at 3:30 in the morning local time a white Chevy Tahoe sped past Buck's car spraying his SUV with bullets. There was another passenger in the car other than the woman hit and Buck, but she was not injured. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
V-Nasty is excited to announce the release of her new mixtape, Doin' Number$. The project features guest verses from Kreayshawn, Gucci Mane, The Madden Brothers, Mistah F.A.B., Roach Gigz, Erk Tha Jerk, and others, along with production from Zaytoven, Tha Bizness, and more. Fans can download the mixtape for free on The White Girl Mob website.
Musically, Doin' Number$ picks up where BAYTL, V-Nasty's collaborative mixtape with Gucci Mane, left off, featuring a collection of bouncy, low-end-heavy production from the Tha Bizness and Zaytoven, with production from the two fast becoming a favorite sound for the up-and-coming rapper.
Doin' Number$ also continues to show V-Nasty's progression as a rapper, as her energetic, forceful flow wraps around the tape's production, whether it be on tracks like "Swobbin'," the Gucci Mane-featuring mixtape opener that has become a growing hit for the Oakland rapper, or the more adventurous "What's My Name," a song that features and is produced by The Madden Brothers.
While Doin' Number$ isn't quite feature-heavy, including Gucci and the Madden's, V-Nasty managed to bring along a few friends and collaborators, a collection of fellow Bay Area artists that includes Kreayshawn and Roach Gigz ("More Bitches"), Mistah F.A.B. ("Pray For My City"), DB Tha General ("Three's Up"), Erk Tha Jerk ("Lean Hard"), and more.
