FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(VP RECORDS, NEW YORK)  - The reggae community mourns the loss of one of its legends, Gregory Isaacs. Best known for his lovers' rock anthems, the versatile and velvet-voiced crooner was recognized by the international masses for his talent and contribution to music for decades, and remains an icon for the genre.

Isaacs was born on July 15, 1951 in Kingston, Jamaica andgained appeal and acclaim in the 1970s and 1980s for hits such as "Night Nurse" and "Rumors." Nicknamed the 'Cool Ruler' by his fans, Isaacs pioneered his own sound by fusing traditional reggae with dancehall, thereby reinventing the genre and expanding its global fan base into what it is today. 

"Gregory Isaacs leaves behind an iconic history and catalog that is unparalleled," reveals VP Records CEO, Christopher Chin. "He devoted his entire life to music and his memory will forever live on with us - through his music and the legacy he leaves behind."

Isaacs fought a year-long battle with lung cancer before passing away on October 25, 2010 at his home in London, at the age of 59. Condolences and prayers go out to his family and loved ones during this trying time.

This was some of the early years underground hip hop where you shopped on sandboxautomatic.com and the previews took forever to load because they were streaming real audio files on dialup! hahahahaha good times! thank you!

Video: Smokes - "Red and White"

Midwest rocketman Smokes released his freestyle version off Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow" smash hit -- which is a chest pounding nod to the colors of his football-crazed hometown Pittsburgh, just in time for Steelers season -- only this time Mr. Asian Pride reps for Wisconsin in its signature colors "Red and White". "Black and Yellow" is Wiz Khalifa's first single off of his yet-to-be-titled Rostrum/Atlantic Records debut album, produced by hit-making team Stargate.

The New World Side Order is Here to Save The Future of Hip-Hop


Chances are you haven’t met a lot of people from the future, let alone very many hip-hop groups that hail from such a time. The New World Side Order, however, is bringing their style, and their lyrics, straight from their year of 2020. A lot has changed between now and 2020, and I caught up with NWSO emcees C.O.N.C.E.P.T. and Crazy E (L to R in Hazmat suits) to find out what the future looks like, why they’re back in our time, and how they’ll know when their mission has been completed. We also discussed their unique live performances, and why humor plays a role in their work.

Philly born, Phoenix resident Teacher-Rapper-Hero RANDOM aka MEGA RAN and DC based producer K-MURDOCK of Panacea are ready to embark on a Southwest to Southeast tour starting November 12, 2010.

PHOENIX, AZ,– Hot off the heels of their successful album Forever Famicom, Teacher/rapper Random and producer K-Murdock are taking their show on the road.

Random’s high-energy set always contains some surprises, such as his mind-blowing freestyle, where crowd participation drives the length and theme of the song.

Ran and K’s innovative album Forever Famicom released on June 1, 2010 and has managed to tap into a fanbase never before explored on such a large scale, the gamers and the hip-hop fans. The album has garnered high praise from top Hip-Hop sites all over the world, key publications (Philadelphia Daily News, Phoenix New Times) as well as the top videogame sites and publications, including Nintendo Power magazine.

The fan support has been phenomenal, and thanks to their donations through Kickstarter, Ran and K are planning a vinyl and DVD release of the Forever Famicom album and sprite videos. The tour will begin on 11/12/10 in Austin, TX, and ends 11/21/10 in Miami, FL.

Since the release of Forever Famicom, Ran and K have each dropped new solo releases. Random’s HEROES vol.1 and K-Murdock’s DECADENSE are available now.
