PR: The Hood Internet Mashes Up Lazerbeak with T.I.


From Kabeer at Girlie Action:

The Hood Internet Mashes Up Lazerbeak with T.I., Mos Def, Drake and More!

Lazerbeak, P.O.S., Dessa and the Rest of the Doomtree Crew Kick Off Joint Tour Next Week
 
Chicago mash-up kings The Hood Internet have just made a mix using six tracks from Lazerbeak’s new album Legend Recognize Legend (Doomtree Records).  The duo fused Beak’s music with the vocal stylings of 8Ball, Devius, Drake, Fiq, Freeway, T.I., Shad, Mos Def, Thomas Mars of Phoenix, and Usher.  Click HERE to stream the mix and click HERE to hear Beak’s original music and watch several videos off his album.  You can catch him, P.O.S., Dessa, and the rest of the Doomtree crew on tour starting next week.
 
Though Beak has spent the last several years building a reputation producing for various MC’s like Wale, P.O.S. and Dessa, he began his musical career as a vocalist/guitarist for indie rock band The Plastic Constellations.  The group signed to Frenchkiss Records, was praised everywhere from Pitchfork to Reader’s Digest, and opened for The Hold Steady.  His mastery of crafting both indie rock hooks and hip hop beats has led to a debut that straddles multiple genres on every track and oozes the assured confidence of a veteran.  With arrangements that include layers of spacey keyboards, creative breakbeats, hooky group vocals, live strings, and other assorted sounds, LRLis a quirky and clever pop record at its heart.

MP3: Johnny Polygon - "What Sadness"


From Nora Ritchie:

MP3: Johnny Polygon - "What Sadness"

Vapors Magazine: “Panty-Dropping”

URB Magazine: “Breath of fresh air”

YRB Magazine: “..new favorite hip hop hero.”

XXL Magazine: “..dropped one of the more stellar releases this year.”
***

While you were sleeping, Johnny Polygon has been busy. Born and bred in Tulsa, the hot bed of hip-hop (not), Johnny, who was the biggest thing Tulsa had seen since trucker hats and oil wells, decided to make a break for it, jump ship and head to the land of golden opportunities; L.A. Johnny got dropped off on Hollywood Boulevard with $297 dollars to his name.

The rest is history. Well, not really.

Let me bring you up to speed. Johnny's video for "Riot Song" is currently in rotation on MTV and VH1. His music has been featured on Grand Theft Auto IV, How To Make It In America mixtape and the film Brooklyn's Finest, and he sang the hook on Nas' "Black President." Not bad for $279.

Johnny has some exciting projects in the works but specifics are on the hush hush right now so shhhh.

To whet your appetite a bit, here's a track that didn't make any of Johnny's upcoming projects. It's a little teaser for what's to come.
