Black Milk & Decon to Release "Album of the Year" on 9/14

From Decon Media:

Black Milk & Decon to Release "Album of the Year" on 9/14

Black Milk, Detroit’s latest heir to a long musical legacy, has partnered with New York creative agency/record label Decon and indie hip-hop purveyors Fat Beats to release Album Of The Year. Expounding on his sample-based approach, the title serves as a double entendre; Album of The Year is his greatest professional achievement and is the immediate product of his experiences during the last 12 months. Taking into consideration the loss of several loved ones, it is easy to assume his music would reflect a certain emotional state. Though he addresses these personal difficulties, Milk interprets them as an opportunity to reflect on life’s virtues; Album Of The Year is celebratory and vibrant.

New Big B Single: "Before I Leave This Place" f/ Everlast

From Kerosene Media:

New Big B Single: "Before I Leave This Place" f/ Everlast

Los Angeles, CA - Genre-hopping recording artist Big B has announced a September 14th release date for his fifth studio album, Good Times & Bad Advice.  The first single, “Before I Leave This Place” featuring Everlast is currently streaming online at  and is available on iTunes now. The album is the next step in Big B’s growing musical evolution as he mixes elements of rock, hip-hop, along with his trademark laid-back acoustics, to create a sound that embodies his feel-good lifestyle. In addition to Everlast, the album includes guest appearances by Pepper, Unwritten Law's Scott Russo, Glasses Malone and Cisco Adler.
It’s rare for an artist to cross genres as seamlessly as Big B has consistently done over the years and he only continues to break down the boundaries, being embraced in any genre or environment he steps into. BIG B has become known for his raw and honest style, likening him to a modern day Johnny Cash yet blending in his own elements, namely hip-hop, alternative rock, country and even a laid-back reggae vibe. Not just in his recording, but his touring companions have ranged from artists of all genres including Pepper, Pennywise, REHAB, Kottonmouth Kings, Tech N9ne, The Expendables and he is currently on the Strange Noize Tour with Hed(Pe) and Kutt Calhoun.
Continuing to expand his image to diverse audiences, BIG B has even entered into a partnership with Madison Square Garden to feature the album’s title track in the legendary venue’s entire summer advertising campaign. BIG B was also a regular cast member on the A&E hit television series INKED, focusing on his work at the Hart & Huntington Tattoo Company in Las Vegas alongside his friend and freestyle motocross icon Carey Hart. INKED became one of the most viewed television shows in A&E’s history and brought BIG B an entirely new fan base.
The video for “Before I Leave This Place” was recently shot and will be released in the coming weeks. Of working with Everlast on the track, Big B recently stated, “It was a true honor to record and shoot a video with an icon such as Everlast. He has greatly inspired me over the years and I truly respect him as an artist and a friend in this business we call music!”

Video: OKPTV Presents: David Banner & 9th Wonder - Death Of A Pop Star Interview Part 1

David Banner And 9th Wonder Sit Down With OkayPlayer To Discuss Their Upcoming Album 

The Video:

As we continue to approach the highly anticipated release of Death Of A Pop Star,'s OKPTV met up with the project's collaborators, the Grammy Award-winning duo David Banner and 9th Wonder, to bring us the first half of an interview, shot while the two were recently in New York for their Peter Rosenberg-presented An Evening With... event. Upon the opening moments of the video, fan's biggest curiosities are put to rest, as the two address their surprising partnership and how it came about. Though a difference in personality is clear, their chemistry is undeniable. Among other topics discussed, are the many common grounds shared by Banner and 9th. The creative duo also touch on their next single, "Be With You" featuring Marsha Ambrosius and Ludacris, as well as their behind the scenes arguments over some of the project's creative decisions.

Look for David Banner and 9th Wonder's collaborative album, Death Of A Pop Star, this summer via Big Face Entertainment.

Check out David Banner & 9th Wonder's "Slow Down" Video here: .

The Background:

9th Wonder has a history of teaming with legendary emcees and crafting dream projects that have resulted in both critical and commercial success. A producer from North Carolina, 9th Wonder started his career as the main producer for the hip-hop group, Little Brother. Leaving Little Brother after their second album together, The Minstrel Show, 9th Wonder has since become a producer and emcee in his own right. Working with MURS, Nas, Beyonce, Jay-Z and more, 9th Wonder has made a name for himself in the hip-hop world. Also known as his rapper alterego, 9thmatic, 9th Wonder is a modern-day hip-hop renaissance man. Hailing from Jackson, Mississippi, David Banner has made a name for himself on the hip-hop scene since 2000. Since then, he has released four studio albums and even became a celebrated producer like producing smash hits like T.I.'s "Rubberband Man," and having smash hits of his own like "Get Like Me". David Banner's most recent successes include writing, producing, and arranging (with guidance from Jimmy Smith and The G Team at Chalt Day) the new non-hip hop Gatorade theme song "Evolve," performed by Kermit Quinn. Teaming up with 9th Wonder may seem like an unusual collaboration but as the two talented artists come together, their initial album will leave a deep impression on fans. Death of A Pop Star drops summer 2010 via David Banner's own Big Face Entertainment.

Devo Spice Update for 7/13/2010

From Devo Spice:

Devo Spice Update for 7/13/2010

Hey everyone,

I've crawled out from under the boxes I've been packing to give you a quick update.

This is your last call for cheap Sudden Death CDs and cassettes.  The sale ends Thursday afternoon, right before I get on the road for Nerdapalooza.  Basically I'm just going to reset the prices in the database and then get on the road.  So if you want to pick up some cheap CDs ($4.99) and cassettes ($2.99) be sure to get your orders in before Thursday afternoon.

Nerdapalooza is this weekend in Orlando, FL and I'm freakin' psyched.  My set is Saturday afternoon at 3:25 right before the lunch break.  That's assuming this thing stays on schedule which I highly doubt it will, but that's cool.

Other FuMP artists performing include Positive Attitude (Sat 11:20 AM), Schaffer The Darklord (Sat 6:55 PM, yes he's a FuMP artist, he just hasn't posted anything yet), Worm Quartet (Sun 1:30 PM), and The Great Luke Ski (Sun 3:15).

For all the gory details go to

If you missed the interview I did Sunday night on The Hip Hop Shop you can now listen to it online here:

OK, back to packing.
