From Artist PR Wire:



HOUSTON, TX - 11/3/10

A.M.I.L. RECORDS & ENTERTAINMENT has been found to be a fresh new voice out of Houston, TX in the markets of Hip Hop and POP music. With their new innovative ways of marketing new artist and reaching the hearts and soul of many, A.M.I.L. RECORDS plans its efforts on the release of one of it's new artist influential artists' named "LIL NO".

While collaborating with some of Houston's hip hop royalty, Lil No (Short for Notorious) has unquestionably shown that he possesses all the qualities needed to receive the “KING” crown of hip hop in the music industry. A native of Houston, Texas Lil' No was officially born Kennis Green. With his striking good looks, charismatic personality and physical physique of 6'5”, No is what the south calls “a beast on the mic.”

Lil' No grew up on the Southwest side of Houston, Texas infatuated with two loves, basketball and the rap culture. Lil' No's skill on the hardwood garnered the attention of many college programs before he finally accepted a basketball scholar-ship to New Mexico State University. It wasn't until a basketball injury ended his hoop career that "No" decided to leave his first love of basketball to become a lyrical genius on the stage.

Lil' No has received quite a buzz due to the high street demand of his fist single featuring Lil' Keke. “So Throwed.” In addition to success in Houston, this attainment has brought No's name into prominence with neighboring states such as Louisiana and Mississippi. The single “So Throwed” was extremely successful in Louisiana making radio station KKST top 4 countdown in three weeks.

Aiming to hit hard with his first project, Lil' No carefully put together his materials while cleverly assembling collaborations with other Houston hip hop artists, such as Lil' Keke, Big Hawk, Trae and ESG. Lil' No has finished working on over 2000 songs throughout his extensive 10 year underground career starting when he was 16 now 26 he can contend with the experience that one would find in the ages of T.I, Lil Wane, Jeezy, and etc. His music is feeding the fan's hunger for something fresh and new in the music industry. In listening to his rhymes, you know Lil' No is a student of the hip hop culture and speaks to the mass of young and old hip hop junkies. You can Visit Lil' No at: or

MP3: Boog Brown - "Shine" (yU Remix)

Brown Study Track Gets yU Treatment With New Beat And Verse

The Song:

Appearing on the recent Brown Study, the album born from the collaboration between producer Apollo Brown and emcee Boog Brown, the track "Shine" established itself as one of the more dramatic cuts, complete with pulsating handclaps and melancholy strings. In the latest incarnation of the song, a remix from Diamond District member yU, the tone is decidedly funkier.

One of the only things that is consistent over the two versions of the song is its underlying message which, appropriately enough, is to continue to shine. "Aint nobody like you / Be who you are," Boog says both to herself and the listener. "Shine on them, baby / Don't you know you're a star?" yU's verse serves to support Boog's sentiments, especially in lines like "the law that I live by is give it my all." Though the ambience may differ, the new beat and verse only compliment and build on the original, the all-important qualities of any good remix.

Boog Brown's new album Brown Study is now available via Mello Music Group.

The Background:

Boog Brown:
In the world of Hip Hop, Atlanta based Boog Brown spreads her "Dope Girl Magic" like her life depends on it and returns us to the roots of a genre that has literally changed the world. Currently based in Atlanta, Detroit native Brown describes herself as a "lover, fighter and artist." This is reflected in her personal style, lyrical approach and unique perspective. Though she has been an emcee for roughly 3 years, her writing goes back to the age of 15, allowing her to amass an arsenal of lyrics including two chapbooks of poetry, Swimming Against the Current State of Mind: My Life In Words and Black Tie Fish Fry, and her debut mixtape, the 2007 release entitled Extended Play. Earlier this year, Brown released The Grind Season Vol. 1 mixtape which features production from Illastrate, Lex Boogie, 14KT and appearances from staHHr, Fluxwonda of Binkis Recs, and Mojo Swagger. The Brown Study LP is available now via Mello Music Group.

Apollo Brown:
Born into a bi-racial family in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Apollo Brown's early influences skewed more toward the music of Journey and The Carpenters than the urban genres his peers often cite as inspiration. This is not to say that once hip-hop came into play, Apollo wasn’t all in. Just as easily as he can praise the virtues of yacht rock, the 29-year-old beatsmith can name personal heroes - Gang Starr, Wu-Tang, Mobb Deep, M.O.P., Nas, and Black Moon - from the early 90s period in which, for him, beats and rhymes became life. Apollo began making his own music in 1996 using Voyetra audio software, then upgraded to Cool Edit 2000 in becoming a self-described bedroom beat-maker for roughly the next eight years. It was the mid-2000s, and the upstart producer saw no future for his work - work he had dedicated his life to - in an industry where radio was setting a formulaic pattern for mainstream music. But he eventually began to miss the creativity in his craft and began producing once again, releasing the instrumental albums Skilled Trade (2007) and Make Do (2009). He went on in 2009 to win the Detroit Red Bull Big Tune Championships and competed in the national finals. Apollo then signed as a producer with the Mello Music Group in December of 2009. His debut album, The Reset, is available now via Mello Music Group.

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 & 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 be releasing projects from Oddisee, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Kenn Starr, Finale, Trek Life, Dudley Perkins, Sareem Poems, UPS, and YU throughout 2010. .
