Actual Proof :: The Talented Tenth



[Here's some hip-hop music from the duo who's been putting it down for years, yet they're only beginning. Actual Proof's "Talented Tenth," which the title is based on a W.E.B. DuBois essay, brings back the A-B sides for the heads, one named after MLK Jr. and the other Malcolm X. If you need actual proof that you should check out Actual Proof, this is it.]

Game :: Purp and Patron




[Game believes that he owes us for the wait of his upcoming R.E.D. Album. So he decides to drop this Purp and Patron mixtape which is over "two disc" long, which influences this FMF title. Check out Game's mixtape so you can see what he's been up to and he hasn't lost a step in his rap at all.]

J.Y. :: The Slave Shift: Walking Down



[Not sure what J.V. stands for, but "Slave Shift" gives me enough nods for me to post here. This cat's already paid dues as he grinds in the slave shift and he has many producers and rappers, including Nipsey Hu$$le and Cory Gunz, co-signing his grind.]

From J. Melo:

Mixtape: Mick Boogie x Chris Jones - "Creative Control"

Mick Boogie burst onto the scene in 1996 and quickly became one of the most recognizable mixtape composers and radio DJ's in hip-hop. Having worked with Eminem, Jay-Z, Mobb Deep and more, his most storied accomplishment came in 2006 when his "The Pre-Up" mixtape was hosted by Eminem & DJ Alchemist. The world famous Rolling Stone Magazine cited the tape as one of the top five mix CD's of the year.

Known for his eye for talent, it's rare that Mick Boogie puts his brand behind a new artist. However that day has come, as he hosts the debut mixtape by an artist way of Queensbridge, New York. Chris Jones is a versatile emcee and that is evident all throughout his Mick Boogie hosted mixtape, "Creative Control" which we've made available for download below to post on your respected website or blog.

MP3: Blaackbottom f/ Mac Bre-Z - "For Life"


From J. Melo:

MP3: Blaackbottom f/ Mac Bre-Z - "For Life"

Blaackbottom stormed onto the scene a few weeks ago with help of Lil Wayne and Jody Breeze. With his first two singles featuring such world renowned artists, Blaackbottom quickly made his way to thousands of hip-hop websites and blogs, making him one of the most recognized new artists in the game. This week, he returns with a third leak off his "Blaack History" album dropping this March as he hooks up with Mac Bre-Z for "For Life."

"For Life" (f. Mac Bre-Z)
Blaackbottom is currently available for all press inquiries. His story is quite an interesting one, including his upbringing and why he spells his name with two "A's", military background which saw him stationed in Afghanistan during the war and his "Blaack History" album being released independently with major features and producers.

Erk Celebrates Clear Channel New! Artist To Watch Honor With Latest Single From Nerd's Eye View

Critical Praise For Erk Tha Jerk:

"Nerd’s Eye View will likely be remembered as one of the definitive Bay Area albums of the post-Hyphy era... Not only is it the best debut album since Mistah F.A.B.’s Son of a Pimp, but it might just change perceptions of Bay Area rappers: namely, that they can’t make hit songs." – Oakland Local.

"On Nerd's Eye View, Erk just talks about what he knows, and in this case, it largely centers around his uncertainty over what the future holds. Erk has a gravelly voice and bouncy flow... and it's hard not to love the ravey synths, big hooks, and confessionals." - SF Weekly.

"Erk Tha Jerk is a West Coast Kid Cudi without the liquid cocaine problem." - East Bay Express.

The Song:

In a few short months since its release, Erk Tha Jerk's debut album Nerd's Eye View has earned the certified Hood Nerd radio spins and acclaim from critics. Now the Bay Area emcee is proud to release the latest track from the album "Hands Up," recently chosen to be the centerpiece of Clear Channel's "New! Artist To Watch" promotional campaign. As a result of his new title, his profile has been posted on the websites of 50 radio stations across the country, such as KISS, Power 105 and more, including regular supporter and Bay Area powerhouse 106 KMEL.

Calling out all the single ladies, Erk shows off his slick talking ability "Let me get behind that, girl do it again rewind that /I can be a drum to your high hat /Dope boy fresh, like I'm bringing '89 back," while Netta B provides the sensual background vocals. The mix of bluesy guitar chords, soulful horns and drums set the smooth mood of the track.

PR: Cali Swag District Joins Blizzard Tour w/ Nelly


From Greg Miller:

Cali Swag District Joins Blizzard Tour w/ Nelly

Los Angeles, CA - January 27, 2011 - Platinum selling Los Angeles recording group Cali Swag District (Smoove, Yung, JayAre and M-Bone) will be joining Nelly on the Blizzard Music tour which kicks off March 1st.  The 'Teach Me How To Dougie' rappers were added as special guests to the 10 tour dates below and will be performing hits from their forthcoming debut album "The KickBack" due in stores this February.

"We're honored to share the stage with a reputable artist like Nelly," says Yung. "We have an amazing show prepared and will show people that we have so much more incredible music beyond the Dougie."

Cali Swag District's debut single "Teach Me How To Dougie" turned a dance originally created by legendary rapper Doug E. Fresh into a pop culture phenomenon that had everyone including Ellen DeGeneres, Barbara Walters, CNN 'Situation Room' host Wolf Blitzer, Wendy Williams, the cast of Glee, Oliver Stone, Mo'Nique, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber, and Kim Kardashian celebrating and doing their own translation of the Dougie. 

While 2010 was the 'year of the Dougie' as reported by Wall Street Journal, 2011 is proving to be very fruitful for the Inglewood natives. Yung, Smoove, JayAre and M-Bone have recently released their new single "KickBack" which has been shooting up the urban airplay chart.  And the accompanying music video for 'KickBack' has already been added to MTV Jams and Fuse rotation and will premiere as the 'New Joint' on BET's 106 and Park.

In addition, the group has confirmed a half-time performance of 'Teach Me How To Dougie' at this year's ESPN's Celebrity Game during NBA All Star Weekend.

The Blizzard Music Tour commences on March 1, 2011 in South Dakota, and wraps March 13, 2011 in Wyoming.  Get your Dougie on at one of the tour dates listed below:

March 1          Brooking, SD              Swiftel Centre
