We at AT get a lot of creative types passing through our doors. As sad as we are to see our faithful and hardworking Northeastern intern end his term with us, we're proud to showcase his music to the masses. With his debut mixtape, The Last KiD On EARTH, released less than a week ago, Rhode Island native MC K.i.T is ready to keep the ball rolling.
Following last week's dubstep inspired single, "Boys & Girls," the Ocean State Great switches things up with new single "Hardcore Parkour," a track that delivers with hard lyrics and boom-bap production.
Naughty By Nature celebrates the December 13, 2011 release of "ANTHEM INC." the 20th Anniversary Collector's Edition album. Celebrating 20 years since their debut album release. This is a quick glimpse at their album release party.
SL Jones is excited to announce the release of his latest mixtape, Flight Risk. The project is being released to fans as a free download, available through the Little Rock rapper's Bandcamp.
With previous mixtapes, the list of guests – Clipse, Waka Flocka, Trae Tha Truth, Killer Mike, Pill, Chamillionaire– served as a testament to networking and mutual artistic respect. But with Flight Risk, Jonesy largely goes it alone; the 10-song mixtape features no big names. Flight Risk does, however, find SL continuing to work with a collection of top-grade producers, names that include Lex Luger, Shawty Redd, Young L, Sonny Digital, Honorable C.N.O.T.E., Metro, Smiff & Cash, and more.
Flight Risk, clocking in at 10-tracks and playing just over 40 minutes, is also SL's most cohesive, concise project to date — as well as his most aggressive. "I had a lot of pent up aggression – from my legal situation, from the restrictions it's put on my life – and the music reflects that," explains SL. "I wanted listeners to get below the surface, and give them a glimpse of what makes me who I am. I don't want my audience to just listen to my music; I want them to connect."
In addition to brash emotion, Flight Risk, SL's third release over the past six months, is a project that shows continued growth."The Number 23 was about showing off talent and range, while Pandamonium was reckless emotion, driven by fear, uncertainty, desperation, and confusion," he explains. " I'm learning to embrace the chaos and steer my emotions in any creative direction, and Flight Risk is the next step in that progression: embracing the bad and hoping for the best, all while fully expecting it to get worse."
