PR: Noisey College Tour Starring Kreayshawn & Neon Indian

(October - New York, NY) - VICE, in concert with Dell and Intel, is pleased to announce the first-ever Noisey College Tour, a two-week, ten-city music tour co-starring chillwave indie rock darling Neon Indian and video hitmaker/rapper Kreayshawn.

Noisey was launched with the mission of creating an online music destination that showcases the best bands from all over the planet, presenting a global snapshot of music and youth culture from 11 countries worldwide. With the Noisey College Tour, VICE is taking Noisey offline for the first time ever. But the mission remains the same, to showcase great bands for the fans. The tour is being presented by Dell and Intel and is supported by Rdio, a free, unlimited, on-demand social music service.

Students and fans can go to to learn more about the tour as well as check out upcoming tour updates from the bands themselves.

Co-headlining with Neon Indian on the Noisey College Tour, will be Oakland rapper, videographer, and recent VMA Best New Artist nominee Kreayshawn, whose infectious hit song "Gucci Gucci" became the song of the summer when it infiltrated house parties and airwaves from Cali to London. With the spotlight on both of these eclectic artists, plan on 2012 being a big year for them both.

For more than fifteen years, the name Jedi Mind Tricks has become synonymous with raw, gritty underground hip-hop. From their debut album, The Psycho-social, in 1996 to their seminal sophomore release, Violent By Design, to their musical expansion heard on Servants and Heaven, Kings in Hell, JMT has made an indelible impression on the independent music scene (with over 400K units sold) while arguably forging its own subgenre of rap.

Led by the fiery vocals of controversial front man, Vinnie Paz (who also released a critically acclaimed solo-LP, Season Of The Assassin in 2010 which featured the underground smash "Street Wars" f/Clipse & Block McCloud and also guest apperances from Paul Wall, Freeway and Beanie Sigel), and his venerable rhyme partner, Jus Allah, the group has built one of the most critically-acclaimed and commercially-successful careers in independent music.

Though JMT rarely appears on Billboard charts, their success is most accurately measured in the passion and respect of their growing legions of hardcore fans who have packed JMT shows around the world from Boston to Bogota to Bucharest. JMT's music is defiant and their longevity is a testament to their blue-collar work ethic; born from the bloodlines of their hometown, Philadelphia, PA.

On October 25, 2011, JMT is set to drop its seventh studio album, "Violence Begets Violence", through Vinnie Paz's own imprint, Enemy Soil. Though JMT fans can expect more of the uncompromising, unrelenting brand of hardcore rap music that has become the group's signature sound, "Violence Begets Violence," marks a change (something the group has undeniably become accustomed to over the years) as longtime JMT producer, Stoupe, hands over production duties to a new wave of talented producers honed in on the JMT sound; but set on creating a fresh take on a classic formula.

Jedi Mind Tricks "Violence Begets Violence" will be available on CD, vinyl, and via digital download on October 25, 2011.

Video: League510 - "Soul Of Synth" (Flying Lotus Redux)

From Audible Treats.

After the release of their most recent EP, Believe In The League, Oakland rappers TK, Monty, Mr. Knowitall, and DJ Blacksmith, otherwise known as The League510 are dropping a new video for the track "Soul Of Synth." The beat, which was originally produced by Flying Lotus, was discovered by Mr. Knowitall while watching an Adult Swim commercial on Cartoon Network late one night. "His (Mr. Knowitall) inner MC just had to find the beat and rap on it." Explains Monty. "The super swinging, heavy, soulful drum cadence and the layered 8 bit video game- like synthesizers were just begging to be rapped over."

MP3: Constant Deviants - "Gotta Get Paid (Remix)"

From Audible Treats.

Constant Deviants, consisting of emcee M.I. and producer DJ Cutt, are excited to release "Gotta Get Paid (Remix)." The track serves as the lead single from their upcoming Platinum: The Mixtape, which will serve as a precursor to their forthcoming album, Diamond, and will be released via their Six2Six label and offered to fans for free download.

This part-Baltimore, part-NYC duo got their start in 1995, and five years later, M.I. was signed to Arista Records and brought Cutt on board as his sole producer. Since then, they've worked with the likes of N.O.R.E., Rick Ross, and Jay-Z's Roc-A-Fella Records. Never ones to sit still, the Deviants decided to start their own record label, Six2Six Records, in 2009, with the intention of cultivating their signature sound. Enter Constant Deviants' new release, Platinum: The Mixtape. The seventeen-track project is stacked with a slew of freestyles from M.I as he raps over industry beats along with 2 original exclusives.

"Gotta Get Paid (Remix)," a flip of a song that will ultimately appear on Diamond, finds CDS teamed up with Spain's own D Cut Love, which resulted in a unique collaboration stemming from an artist-fan connection. "Being that we have such a personal relationship with our audience, we like to give them a chance to become a part of hip-hop history," says M.I. "D Cut Love is one of the dopest producers I've heard from overseas."

Despite the seemingly commonplace title, "Gotta Get Paid (Remix)" is more about CDS achieving financial enlightenment than about materialistic excess. "It explains the feeling of doing music your whole life, and making the decision to stop 'shopping for a deal' and finally selling your product," explains M.I. Almost unrecognizable from the original, the remix track features M.I.'s laid-back lyrical flows over a cushy and soulful synth chops, not to mention a well-placed KRS-One vocal sample on the hook.
