Heart Felt lyrical content infused with new age melodies and song concepts that usually have multiple meanings can easily make Jeury San the next Aspiring hip hop artist to look out for. While becoming a known name throughout the Tri-state area, he is defined as the true meaning of an artist, rapper, and producer. San believes in order to stay current in this fast paced industry you must follow the aphorism, "You are only as good as your last song."

Also influenced by artist such as Joe Budden, Kid Cudi, Kanye West and many more he understands that he could never really pin point where his direct sound is derived from. He is a student of his art and welcomes any and all genre's that compliment his style that you now see today.
As his official album "Emotions Untitled" releases on Sept 27th 2011, Jeury and The Imagination Muzic Imprint showcase their ability to make a classic independent record without the likes of a major distribution. Each song shows a different emotion or current state of mind that Jeury was actually in at the time. With songs from "Maria Sharapova" to "Love and Other Drugs" to show his ability to hit each demographic. He has the versatility and creative mindset to push the bar of unique song making at all times.

Following last week's release of the soulful single "Bump My Head," Oakland native Baby Jaymes is excited to release his new EP, What Ever Happened To Baby James. The five-track project carries a sound that jumps from vintage to boundary pushing, showing off a range and diversity that the rising singer-songwriter is fast becoming known for.
Standout tracks include Baby Jaymes' R&B rendition of rapper 50 Cent's early career hit "21 Questions," with Jaymes forgoing samples for live instrumentation and effortlessly flipping the lyrics into a sing-song ballad. "Streets," with Bay favorite The Jacka, features Jaymes singing his woes and praises of Oakland, while "California" flips a driving, horn-heavy instrumental into one of the more fun love songs you'll hear to close out the year.
For folks based in The Bay Area, you're invited to attend Baby Jaymes' album release party tonight, Tuesday, November 15th, @ Shashamane 2507 Broadway Oakland, CA 94612 10pm-2am. Physical CD's and merchandise will be on sale at the party.
