This week while on her trip to London for the world-renowned "London Fashion Week", Kanye West's ex-girlfriend Amber Rose met up with the hottest new group in the UK, Marvell. Amber was seen with the London rap trio in Aqua nightclub at Reverend Run's party where she seemed to take an instant liking to Double S, Shocka and Vertex, whom she appeared to be very friendly with. Still independent, Marvell's video for their S-X produced debut single "We Know" currently sits at the top of the MTV Base chart. After viewing the video for herself, Amber took to her Twitter account to let her 140,000 followers know just how much she was "loving" Marvell before going on to say how sexy the guys are and giving them a number of hugs and kisses.
Emerging Midwest rap sensation Smokes aka Mr. Asian Pride is thrilled to present his latest joint in a series of blockbuster collaborations titled "Get Down" featuring West Coast's hottest new artist Nipsey Hussle.
"Get Down" is featured on Smokes brand new mixtape, "The Bidding War", hosted by DJ Johnson, besides collaborations with Oscar-winning Hip-Hop duo Three 6 Mafia, Philly's own Tone Trump, and veteran rapper Coo Coo Cal. Production credits include Grammy Award-winning beatmaker Vudu Spellz (Ludacris, Montell Jordan), DJ Pain 1 (Young Jeezy, Yo Gotti, Bun B), !llmind (50 Cent, Eminem, Lloyd Banks), Sean Divine (Jadakiss, Sonny Rich), and others.

The fact is these two emcees are still writing their story. They currently just completed an album with super producer STATIK SELEKTAH (credits with NAS,WALE,BUN B). Their breakout single 'SAY YES' has caught the attention of Karmaloop.com,Urb.com, Hiphopdx.com, and many other top new media sites.

IHIPHOP DISTRIBUTION AND FRANKRADIO ARE PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE RELEASE OF MARZ LOVEJOY’S DEBUT EP THIS LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE ON NOVEMBER 23, 2010. FIRST SINGLE ”STICKY” PRODUCED BY POLYESTER THE SAINT & BROOK D'LEAU
For Immediate Release September 23rd, 2010
MARZ Lovejoy discovered her passion for music at a young age. Writing poetry and lyrics always came naturally to the 19-year old Los Angeles Native. Earlier this year, she was tapped by Pac Div (Motown/Universal) to appear on their song “Shine” which had an immediate impact. Since her appearance on the track, fans and critics have been clamoring to hear more music and to learn about her as an artist.
Feeling the time was right, MARZ teamed up with star Los Angeles producer, Polyester the Saint, (most recently known for his work with Dom Kennedy, Pac Div and U-N-I, Skeme and many others) to craft the majority of her debut EP and her first single “Sticky.”
Her growing success is all due, in MARZ’s words, to “…humility and perseverance. I know it sounds cliché, but I strongly believe in staying humble. People forget where they came from and who they kicked it with, but my memory is keen.”
Check out “Sticky” NOW!

Boog & Apollo Bring Along Friends For The Latest Single From Brown Study
The second single from the Brown Study album, "Friction", is an unadulterated, rough, and hard-hitting track. Apollo Brown takes no prisoners on this "heat rock," as Boog Brown best illustrates it. "Friction" opens with intensity and aggressiveness that leads into a firestorm of lyrics from Boog Brown. With a no nonsense line of attack, Boog shows off why she is quickly establishing herself as a lyrical heavy weight and holds her own along side longtime friends and lyrical specialists Invincible and Miz Korona, showing off wit and dexterity with lyrics like, "The goddess is all this and then some/ Thumbin' my nose at hoes and all critics - you can all get it/ I'm authentic, arsenic wit a flow all liquid/ No argument/ Heavy weight lyrics like I move large shipments/ Bo-guard the diction/ Good God it's sickening." Like steel sharpening steel, the lyrical onslaught of Boog, Korona, and Invicible perfectly compliment Apollo's unrelenting samples and heavy drums. The message of "Friction"? Boog puts it best: "No message per-se, just enjoy the dopeness and the next time you say 'she's dope for a female' remember this joint."
Boog Brown and Apollo Brown’s album Brown Study will be available September 28th via Mello Music Group.
