Phil Ade teams up with British music video director Oliver Whitehouse to create a reflective and somber visual "Coming Home." This Sunny Norway produced track can be found on Phil Ade's latest project A Different World. Watch it now!
Armageddon sits behind the Director's chair alongside Gee Notes (of Beast Corps) for the visuals to, "Dance With The Devil." Shot in short-film style, the story follows a street gang in desperate need of a mischievous, adventurous night, and embark on a dark, twisted ride that ends even more demented than it began. Amidst the suspense and mystery, Armageddon still incorporates the classic, fun vibe of Hip-Hop culture as he rocks to a packed house party. "Dance With The Devil," is off his recent SoFlo Entertainment/Geddy Music release, The Journal Vol I: Rebirth.
MP3: Hood Samaritan - "Rise Up" (prod. by Blockhead)
After getting out the gates with their debut leak "Paris", the Hood Samaritan crew, comprised of emcees Kyle Rapps & Y-Love and producer/deejay Diwon, are back for round two in their promo campaign for their forthcoming FreEP, Honey Dijon. This time around, the prolific Blockhead lends a hand to the samaritan movement with "Rise Up", an uplifting opus of boom-bap drums and moving strings that compliment their positive, yet sincere rhymes. "Stay fly, the price of low-living is way high/ I'm all about giving but don't take mine/ we can build together watch the cake rise."
Boog Brown rips mics. This we know. The Atlanta based emcee is gearing up for the December 20th release of The Brown Study Remixes. Today Boog is blessing fans with a remix from Seattle producer Def Dee. Enjoy the song & feel free to post!
Boog Brown sets up three stories of betrayal that end in karmic payback for her song Blink. The first story is of everyman who cheats with what he thinks is the good shit, not realizing he's bringing the HIV home. The second of a treacherous female always leaving a good man for wife beater. And the third of a plotter who plans to get rich on a thug move but underestimates what it takes and instead is taken. Def Dee backs the entire produciton with bawdy burlesque inspired beat that matches the sexual overtness of the track, mirroring the 3 seductions in Boog's verses: sexual, financial, and criminal.
