MP3: League510 - "They Stuck"

League510 Release First of Pre-Album Tracks As They Prepare Solo Debut To The Beat

The Song:

Bay area hip-hop group and leaders of the burgeoning Town Techno movement League510 teams up with vocalist Chris "CT" Turner for the League's latest single, "They Stuck." . League510 -- a self-contained unit comprised of TK, Mont, Mr. Knowitall, and DJ Blacksmith -- flex their lyrical muscles once again, delivering party anthem energy and a message of playful bravado. "This new song is about being fly, turning heads and having everybody stuck when they see you," explains TK. "It's about looking so nice that everybody has to freeze when they lay eyes on you." In good spirit, League510 boasts about being "fly," but at the same time they inspire listeners to exude similar confidence, offering a bit of collective feel-good for listeners

As League510 continues to prep their solo debut for, To The Beat, fans can expect more new music from the Clear Label Records artists soon.

The Background:

Emcees TK, Mont, Mr. Knowitall and DJ Blacksmith better known as League510 are pioneers of a sound that is all their own, Town Techno. With a sound that is out of this world, League510's musical journey began in a galaxy far away from ours. After traveling the universe for years, they entered our galaxy and our planet shortly thereafter. With sights on our world, the quartet chose to land in the hills east of Oakland, CA. After hiding their ship deep in the hills they approached this new town with great curiosity and were immediately amazed by the vibrant culture that they found. Adopting the Bay Area scene as their new home, League510 wasted no time in beginning their new musical journey here in our world. Using advanced abilities, the four emcees quickly mastered the art of sound and gave birth to Town Techo, a form of music that would unite the people in heightened awareness; to show them to take action, to appreciate the fun in life, to believe in themselves and to believe in The League.

PR: Kottonmouth Kings Join the Prop 19 Effort in CA


From Kerosene Media:

For Immediate Release
 
Kottonmouth Kings & Melissa Etheridge Join The Legalization Efforts For California’s Proposition 19

 
While Kottonmouth Kings are set to kick-off the second leg of their Party Monsters US Tour beginning on November 13th, the group is currently concentrating their efforts on the upcoming November 2nd, 2010 vote for Proposition 19 in the state of California. Proposition 19, also known as the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010, legalizes various marijuana-related activities, allows local governments to regulate, while permitting local governments to impose and collect fees and taxes.
 
“We are on the verge of a historical legislative breakthrough with Proposition 19. It is not a perfect proposition, but it is a huge progressive step towards common sense drug laws,” commented Brad X from Kottonmouth Kings. “We are releasing a free exclusive track we just recorded called ‘Legalize It’ to celebrate this monumental occasion. It is one more step to ending prohibition."
 
Kottonmouth Kings' drummer Lou Dog is currently working alongside criminal defense attorney Bruce Margolin at the Los Angeles chapter of NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) campaigning for the Prop 19 vote. Lou Dog was recently photographed at a fundraising event in Los Angeles, CA alongside Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Melissa Etheridge for the legalization efforts.
 
The Kottonmouth Kings will kick off the second leg of their Party Monsters Tour alongside Big B and Slaine on November 13th in Hollywood, CA at The Key Club.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nov. 1, 2010

LONDON, Nov. 1 /2SPR/ – The comeback single from British Hip-Hop pioneers, Credit To The Nation, titled ‘RTA’, is out now. Available at digital retailers as a remix bundle, that includes a version featuring Chuck D of the legendary Public Enemy.

The new single is the first release in twelve years from the band, and has received positive reviews from media. With strong airplay support from XFM London, and BBC 6 Music, where it was recently featured on the ‘Roundtable’ segment of the 6 Music Steve Lamacq show.

Credit To The Nation made a name for themselves in the early nineties. Their debut album "Take Dis", birthed a selection of political hits and popular singles. These included ‘Teenage Sensation’, which reached #23 on the UK Singles Chart, 'Sowing The Seeds Of Hatred', and the breakthrough single, ‘Call It What You Want’, which sampled the guitar riff on Nirvana's ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’, gained the band a following outside of the rap market, and also appeared on the soundtrack to the Jude Law movie Shopping.

Since then they toured with such artists as Manic Street Preachers, Therapy, and Chumbawamba, and played live at The Glastonbury NME stage, Phoenix Festival, and the Reading Festival Melody Maker Stage to name a few.

‘RTA’ is the first single taken from the upcoming as-yet-untitled album, due for release next year. Fans can expect collaborations with Chuck D of Public Enemy, Sadat X of Brand Nubian, Nathan White, Charly Vox and Benji Webbe, lead singer of Welsh ragga-metallers Skindred.

‘RTA’ is out now, on Crossflow Recordings.
