Uncommon Presents "Save the Horn" for East African Famine Relief
Courtesy Uncommon Records.
Uncommon Records humbly presents our 2nd "Pop Up Album", Save the Horn. All proceeds from Save the Horn will be donated to Charity:Water which builds water wells in the 3rd world. They are currently raising funds to finance a drilling rig that can dig multiple wells in the country of Ethiopia. All of the dollars donated to Charity:Water are verified to be going toward specific wells via Google Maps and photos that are directly associated with the dollars. Even their overhead comes through a separate income source.
Save the Horn will only be available for one month (10/28-11/28), we will then donate all funds raised from the sale of the album and it will never be available again. This creates a rare piece of music in the digital format. The album contains 16 songs for only a $5 donation, although we would encourage you to donate more if you can. Let's tell you about the album:
Save the Horn features music from Uncommon's roster like Acid Reign, Adam Warlock, Atari Blitzkrieg, Pruven, Short Fuze, Taiyamo Denku, Masai Bey, DCK VNNGT along with collaborations with fellow Progressive Hip-Hoppers like JunClassic, Billy Woods, Megabusive, Aeon Grey, Passive65ive, Carl Kavorkian, Zesto and more. The list of producers banding together is also impressive including Nasa, Agartha Audio, IV the Polymath, Black Tokyo, Waatu, Bond and others.
The opportunity to present staunchly Progressive Hip-Hop like this in a joint effort to raise money for a worthy cause is an honor. We were able to make a difference with Japan Earthquake Relief earlier this year with a similar project, now we need to send the same love to Africa. Thanks to everyone that takes part, and enjoy the tunes!!!

First Dirt releases the official music video for "Ima Monster" featuring TASK1NE off of A.R.A.B.'s sophomore album The Trojan Horse. Download "Ima Monster" and other songs from The Trojan Horse at arab.bandcamp.com.
The idea of the video was developed towards a Halloween scary movie theme. The scene consists of A.R.A.B. (Timothy Rhyme) preying on a young female victim (Marcia Anne Rosales) and seducing her into coming back to his house for a drink. After spiking her drink, he drags her into the garage where he and TASK proceed to torture her.
Chance has now released the final version of his latest single "Vera Wang". For those scouring the internet, a previous version was released in the summer, not to be confused with this version of the track. It is the first official single off his upcoming album Made in Yonkers, distributed by Empire Distribution. Vinny Bucks joins Chance once again by producing a fly track that simply rides as Chance delivers his high-time lyrics.

This might be Marcus Manchild's first national tour but he is certainly not handling his business like a rookie. Peep the way he and the AMG boys made Detroit their own during that stop on the Smoker's Club Tour.
How does a van-full of high young men entertain themselves in between tour stops? Side tours. In this Cloverdale, IN KFC side tour Marcus and the AMG hype-men bum rush a couple's trailer park lunch date and get dap from what looks like a couple of old Amish ladies.
