Video: Thurz - "Molotov Cocktail" Off "L.A. Riot"

“I riot for brighter days not knowing what tomorrow brings; They wanna kill a king; like Martin Luther, and do me like Rodney; walking cripple, gawky, batons in the air with a kick and a snobby; look like they wanna kill a N#%*$ for a hobby; bring out the fire squad, N#%*$ wanna blind me; bullets flying right beside me, bullets is criticisms; kevlar the whole army; I hope you riot for the truth...'cause I riot for you”

"Molotov Cocktail" will appear on Thurz’s upcoming solo album L.A. Riot inspired by Rodney King, the 1992 Los Angeles Riots and recent North Africa Uprisings.

Meet Rapper J.R. Bricks at the "Waffle House"

* *

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Block Starz Music,, recording artist J.R. Bricks will release his debut single, "Waffle House", on iTunes, Amazon, and other digital music retailers on July 20.

In a short time, J.R. Bricks has become one of Atlanta's "Most Wanted" emcees. Equipped with sharp lyrics, versatility and a dynamic stage presence, A&R reps are describing him as Hip-Hop's artist to watch.

Born Earl Harrison, Jr. in Havana, Florida., J.R. Bricks is the son of military parents and lived the quintessential life of an army brat experiencing cultures around the globe at a young age.

"When I was 10 years old, I moved to Wiesbaden, Germany," says Bricks, who is also nominated for "Best Southern Rapper” and the "Buzz Factor" awards at the prestigious 2011 Underground Music Awards taking place on August 21st at the world famous B.B. Kings in NYC. "I’ve been to France, England, Czech Republic, Italy, Switzerland, Korea, and the Philippines all before I was 17."

J.R. Bricks musical journey began while in middle school in Germany, where he met future "Waffle House" producer Arturo Turner aka King Turo. "We spent a lot of time making music in computer class," says Bricks, who is part of the League of Champions movement along with King Turo and fellow newcomer, artist/producer M-Print. "[Turo] would beat on the table and I would freestyle to it."

As he grew up in Germany from elementary to high school, J.R. Bricks, who was originally profiled in's prestigious "Next 2 Blow" column and has been featured at, XXL, and The Source magazines respectively, was exposed to various types of music like Techno, Alternative, and Pop, which the rapper believes gives him an edge over the competition.

"My style and appeal is universal," says the ultra-ambitious twentysomething-year-old, who is also a veteran of the United States Air Force. "That is what separates me from these other Hip Hop artists."

J.R. Bricks will be shooting the official music video for "Waffle House" this August 27th on location in Atlanta, Georgia. Check out the preview of "Waffle House" and "More Than A Conquerer" by J.R. Bricks now.

Audio: Shyvonne, "Damn!" (Quickie Mart Dubstep Remix)

audio: Shyvonne, "Damn!" (official Quickie Mart dubstep remix)

on Soundcloud: Quickie Mart on Twitter | Quickie Mart on Facebook

New Orleanian producer/deejay Quickie Mart is fast getting famous for his furious dubstep remixes as much as his three mixtapes' worth of production for NYC rapper Gotham Green (see the Haze Diaries trilogy featuring Freddie Gibbs, Planet Asia and more). On the heels of his popular Gibbs-approved dubstep remix of "National Anthem", Quickie presents his remix of "Damn", the latest from NYC songstress Shyvonne, a former Estelle backup singer now stepping out on her own. "Damn" started out as just a word Shyvonne accidentally uttered during a recording session. Popular Fools Gold Records deejay/producer Kingdom then made that word into the infectious beat that gave birth to "Damn!" Shyvonne and Quickie linked up at this year's SXSW festival in Austin, TX and the "Damn" remix is the face-melting result.

Kottonmouth Kings Release "Love Lost" Video

Kottonmouth Kings have released their video for the track “Love Lost” online at . Kottonmouth King’s new studio album, “Sunrise Sessions”, lands in stores on July 19th, 2011 courtesy of Suburban Noize Records.
"It's a classic song about exactly what the hook states, love lost," says Kottonmouth Kings frontman The Dirtball. "Love is an emotion that most all humans deal with on all levels, including the loss of. A large part of the hook not only focuses on the love lost, but bucking up after it occurs, and dealing with it. It's more about the standing back up and becoming strong on your own. In this lifetime, we love, we win, and we lose -- not always in that order. Of all the emotions we go through as people, love is the most intense and hard to understand, so hopefully this song can smack ya back to reality, and become your comeback battle song!"
Kottonmouth Kings will embark on the Welcome To Stonetown Tour throughout July and August. The tour is set to bring a special evening with the Kottonmouth Kings to each town as the group performs all the classic tracks fans have grown to love, as well as new tracks from their upcoming album. Each tour date will also feature special solo performances by Dirtball, Johnny Richter, Kingspade, DJ Bobby B and D-Loc.
