MP3: Travis Porter - "Make it Rain"

* *

Atlanta-based trio Travis Porter has been grinding heavy for the past few years, and have garnered notice on the underground circuit for their constant stream of indie-distributed mixtapes and music.

It's paid off, because the trio -- consisting of Strap, Quez and Ali -- have signed a new deal with Jive Records, where they will finally release their major label debut.

Newest Single From Mello Music Group Compilation Continues Apollo Brown's Successful 2010, Brings In Affiliate Emcees

The Song:

Hot on the heels of "From The Top," the Oddisee/Stik Figa collaborative single off the recently released Helpless Dreamer compilation album, Mello Music Group has announced the titular track "Helpless Dreamer" as the latest single to show off their talented roster. This time with Apollo Brown, whose own group album from The Left is enjoying high acclaim, on production, affiliate emcees Roc Marciano, X.O. (of Diamond District) and Tranqill offer up verses to compliment the dramatic, horn-heavy beat.

The song acts as the confluence of gifted artists working together for the sake of working together. "That lineup is beautiful, why not collab with them?" Apollo explains of the partnership. He even goes so far as to call Roc Marciano's Marcberg one of his "favorite albums of the year." As far as the song's inspiration, the title of the song says it all. "Sometimes, we want something for ourselves that might be unattainable today," says the Detroit producer. "But if we work hard and dream hard, we'll be able to get it tomorrow." Judging from his contributions on this and his other tracks from Helpless Dreamer, Apollo Brown's tomorrow is approaching fast.

The Mello Music Group compilation, Helpless Dreamer, is available now.

About Mello Music Group:

Like Lao Tzu in hip-hop, Mello Music Group provides music for the soul, from the heart of American culture, opening the realm of the intelligent hip-hop experience through melodic evocations, beats that corroborate the truth, and voices that roar above the rising void and impose order on the terrible and triumphant moments of everyday life. This is the compelling sound of Mello Music Group. Industry newcomer Michael Tolle founded MMG in 2007 and is acting Director of Operations. MMG will release projects from Oddisee, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Kenn Starr, Finale, Trek Life, Dudley Perkins, Sareem Poems, and yU in 2010. .
