Earlier this year Dru Ha (co-owner of Duck Down Music) lost his Father to a 10 year battle with Alzheimer's. In his Father's honor, Dru Ha announced that he will be running the ING New York City Marathon on November 6th in an effort to raise donations & awareness about the horrific disease that affects over 5 million people in the United States alone. To date, Dru Ha has raised over $10,000 in donations.
Duck Down artists, Buckshot, Smif N Wessun, Promise & Double-O, of Kidz In The Hall, dedicated their time to creating an original song, "Run To Remember," in recognition of Dru Ha running the NYC Marathon. Double-O produced the track. The song was recorded at Rubber Tracks in Brooklyn, NY.
Today, the song is available exclusively at iTunes for only 99 cents. Proceeds from the sales will be donated to the Alzheimer's Research foundation.

MP3: Hollywood FLOSS - "Champion Sh!t" Ft. Naledge (of Kidz In The Hall)

When we last left Hollywood FLOSS, he was dropping his street album, One Fan At A Time for free download. The album is a testament to FLOSS’ work ethic - "I will work hard to earn your attention, one fan at a time, no matter how long it takes." - he remarked upon the release of the project, and keeping with that mantra, FLOSS is releasing the latest single from One Fan At A Time, the triumphant anthem, "Champion SH!t."
"The inspiration for the song is beating the odds and overcoming any trials that might get in the way of your dreams," explains the Houston emcee. To keep the creation process organic, FLOSS chose a limited guest list to collaborate with on the album, and on this song he called on Naledge from the Chicago-based crew Kidz in the Hall to contribute a verse. "Naledge stepped in and took the song to the next level," says FLOSS. The beat came from T.I.M.E., also from Chicago. The resulting track is one that declares FLOSS' message loud and clear: “Go hard or Go home; play to a higher level."
