Here is the first official song from the new Proe album "Be Brave, Gladiator" which will be released on Jan 1st 2012. This album Proe is a follow up to his very successful sophomore record "Perfect" in 2005. To keep us busy, last year Proe released his mixtape "Whatever You're On I'll Take 2".
Following that release, Proe promised that his next album would be very different from his mixtape releases... Let's just say we are not disappointed at all. So here it is for your listening pleasure, "Box Cutter Johnny", free and delivered straight to your eardrums compliments of Proe and Routine Fly.
Fdot1 has been locked in the lab since his appearance at The O2 this summer working on some hip hop bangers for 2012.. He has briefly emerged, squinting at the light, to share this tirade with y'all.
Fdot1 left his soft, soulful side at the studio door, stepped in the booth and got MAD!
Mad at the way the UK urban music scene treats real talent, he goes IN on Labrinth's Earthquake beat. The video was a no budget production, filmed in a car park by his manager and edited by Fdot1 himself.
No make-up, no fancy animations, no designer wardrobe and no BULL, just raw flows more intricate than anything that's getting major airplay in the UK right now.
This production was brought to you by the letters F and U.
Beatsmith and A&R Andrew Kelley has come together with The DJBooth to bring listeners Dope on the Table, an exclusive collection of remixed cuts by Raekwon the Chef. Originally conceived as a mixtape project in conjunction with the Wu-Tang spitter’s management, but never completed (read the full story at Kelley’s Tumblrhttp://andrewkelley47.tumblr.com/), the set has been resurrected in the form of a Booth-exclusive, seven-track EP. Included on the tracklist is Kelley’s reader-approved reinterpretation of Chamber Music inclusion “Ill Figures.” Kelley provides all production throughout the project, which features guest appearances from Big L, M.O.P., Kool G Rap, Notorious B.I.G., Ghostface Killah, Sean Price, Pusha T, Littles, Fabolous and Big Boi.

URB - "JNaturaL is LA's hottest upcoming female emcee"
Rap Reviews - "Even when she talks about sex, baby, she does so in a more refined and less crass way than other rappers who seem singularly focused on charming men into doing their bidding through sex appeal. In this way she becomes the West coast version of Jean Grae, not fearing the power of her vocal and bodily appeal, but more likely to appeal to both her male and female audience through the power of her mind and her oration."
Scratched Vinyl - "JNatural might be small in stature, but when I saw her in concert recently, she commanded the attention of men twice her size. She possesses a big voice and switches between a soulful singing voice that’s reminiscent of Joyo Velarde and a rapping style that is obviously influenced by her Project Blowed elders."

Do you have an "I Freestyle Life" hoodie yet? Do you remember those pink "I Freestyle Life" t-shirts where most of the ink washes off? While we have a few of those defective shirts left and while they last we'll be throwing in a defective pink shirt with every hoodie purchase.
Email Brady your shirt size if it differs from the size of the hoodie you purchased, thanks!
*Over the past year (which has been long and chaotic to say the least) I have received a significant number of emails from folks expressing interest in taking advantage of my 1-on-1 "Rap" course, as well as numerous requests from artists looking to create collab tracks together. This winter will be spent doing both, so for those of you who have been patiently waiting and who are serious now is the time to reach out. I would love to follow through and fulfill your requests. Contact me at this email address with either: "Collab" or "1-on-1" in the subject field. Thanks. -Chris
