After radiating radio, clubs and the streets of the Sunshine State and all across the globe with his seething lead single “Heatin It Up,” Tampa, Fla. native J Swift turns up temperatures once again with the recent release of his much-anticipated new single “Lay You Down” ft. JC, produced by Lexi Banks.
It’s getting harder and harder to ignore the effects of human carelessness on the world around us. Unwilling to sit back and watch as everything goes to sh*t, Ras Kass raises consciousness regarding the former issue while doing his part to combat the latter on single numero uno off his forthcoming full-length.
Making its world premiere as entry #17 in The DJBooth and Event Electronics’ 20/20 Music Series, this jam finds Doc Hollywood crafting a dreamy, retro-informed instrumental backdrop (complete with an eerily familiar sitar riff) as the Cali underground mainstay uses ecology as a springboard for some characteristically irreverent, allusive lyrical flames. Holes is just one of many quality cuts set for inclusion on Ras Kass’ FILA (F*ck It Loseit All) LP, which is set for a December release. Additionally, keep it locked for further world premieres throughout the remainder of November.

BRONX, NEW YORK NOVEMBER 22, 2011 – Rap artist Denzil Porter has just released his 3rd project titled Home Made Music that is now available for download here:http://www.sendspace.com/pro/dl/y3gyu7 . Home Made Music features 14 original songs plus 1 bonus track including some of Denzil Porter's most popular hits such as "Haymaker", "Intuition" and "Kanye West", gaining recognition from their music videos on YouTube which have over 120,000 views collectively. The track list features names of some of the hottest underground producers including Christopher "Claws" Stevens of WreckHouse Ent., Mark XLnce of LXG, Hitman D, Trent and more.
Home Made Music is a collection of songs written, recorded, engineered and mastered by Denzil Porter in his bedroom studio making this mixtape literally "homemade". Denzil gives his listeners a great quality of music that was made straight from scratch. "I'm cooking up that raw music to give to the people," Denzil Porter says. "It's the food for thought. I'm hoping this food can bring the listeners to life". With two mixtapes under his belt: On My Way Home and Live From The Other Side, Home Made Music is the first project released after Denzil changed his name from "Young Flame" to "Denzil Porter". Home Made Music combines Denzil Porter's witty lyrics, abstract thoughts and clever punch lines while still maintaining the fun in hip-hop which is the missing element in much of today's music.
When making Home Made Music, Denzil Porter wanted to introduce his listeners to all aspects of his art. Not only is Denzil able to write ingenious lyrics, but he can also formulate them into great songs. He can naturally make different types of music without ever contradicting who he is. Denzil Porter beams, "I really think people are going to love Home Made Music because it's a breath of fresh air. It's just artistic. Home Made Music will be a collectors item".
With Home Made Music being released just two days before Thanksgiving, this is the perfect 14-course meal to fill every listener's appetite. We all know food is the way to the soul and the best type to cook up is always homemade. Join the fun on Twitter and tweet #HMM along with all the homemade food you will be devouring this week while bumping that new Denzil Porter Home Made Music.
About Denzil Porter Denzil Porter, formerly known as "Young Flame", grew up in the north Bronx, NY with a passion for Hip-Hop music from a young age. In high school Denzil Porter began freestyling and battling, defeating all competitors. In 2004 Denzil Porter founded WreckHouse Entertainment, which produces music out of his in-house studio and hosts parties and events. With two mixtapes under his belt: On My Way Home and Live From The Other Side, and Home Made Music being his 3rd newly released project, Denzil Porter is definitely a force to be reckoned with.
On the heels of releasing two critically acclaimed projects (2008's "Children of God" and 2011's collaborative effort with Rugged N Raw "Mohammed Dangerfield" which featured the well-circulated cut with Immortal Technique "Break Of A Star"), Hasan Salaam returns with a new EP "Music Is My Weapon" (appearances by Steele of Smif N Wessun, Chace Infinite, Reef The Lost Cauze, Eternia and production by Snowgoons) which is scheduled to be released on 12-6-2011; and even loftier goals.
The concept behind Hasan Salaam's EP "Music Is My Weapon" is the belief that music can be used as a powerful tool in the pursuit of freedom, justice, and equality. With the release of the project, Hasan is aiming to prove that music can change people's lives, literally. All profits from the sale of the EP will be used to fund a school, clean water well, and medical clinic in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa. In November 2010, Hasan became the first U.S hip hop artist to ever perform in Bissau. On the same trip he worked with the young artists, taught creative writing to the youth, and headlined a concert to promote freedom of speech. The "Music Is My Weapon" project is the next step, in an effort to provide change to a country that remains one of the poorest and least politically stable in the world.
