Phil Ade Drops "Pop That" (Royal Fam Remix) featuring Dee Boy

Phil Ade explains the title of his new project R.O.S.E: "With this project i want to give listeners an in-depth look at how some of the negative influences in society, mainly in media, has affected not just me, but my generation as a whole. Every person is a R.O.S.E. that realizes these evils and either responds positively or negatively, but in just about all cases a little bit of both."

From Wanja Lange:

Video: B-Boyz (Brand New & Kid Boombox) - "W.D.F.W.T."

Stereo Boyz presents B-Boyz aka Brand New & Kid Boombox, who are a part of the Stereo Boyz Crew. "This song is about being sick and tired of people making music with no substance, no emotion or feeling. This is the Stereo Boyz Crew way of having fun and at the same time calling people out. We love Hip Hop and are tired of artists claiming it but not doing Hip Hop. We dont fuck with that. "  The Stereo Boyz Crew feels that Hip Hop doesn't have to sound a certain way musically, for it to be considered real Hip Hop. They want to show that you can have hard hitting beats, you can make party music, as long as your lyrics are on point and you're doing something original, it's Hip Hop.
