MP3: J. Nic$ - "Show You the Way"


From Semp Rok:

MP3: J. Nic$ - "Show You the Way"

Standing 6'5" and over 200Ibs, J. Nic$ is an intimidating person at first sight. So if you crossed his path along the North Miami streets and heard he was a rapper, you'd automatically judge the book by it's cover. Now J.Nic$ wants to "Show You The Way" with his new single and prove he has more to offer than the typical street rhymes. He pens his book of life and unity as the ambience is nourished by the digitally smooth production of REM. J. Nic$ feels it necessary to speak to the youth and those misguided, enlightening them if at least for a second with valuable jewels and life lessons. Next on his agenda is to release a 6 track EP in September entitled, The Stimulus Package.


"Real 'G' Sh*t/ And Street N*gg*s never say they on some street sh*t/ I'm a Show You." - J. Nic$

From K-Murdock:

NEOSONIC News - Neosonic Tones

Awhile back, I had some fans ask me would i ever consider making ringtones... i laughed initially but thought it may be actually kinda cool, and went on to create some for download! Thus, i proudly present to you all: Neosonic Tones, which features 50 total beats... some new, some old, with most of them unreleased & condensed down to 20 - 30 sec snippets for play on your smartphones!  Included in the download are .m4r formatted tones for iPhones as well as .mp3, which work in everything else (Blackberry, HTC, etc); I also threw some wallpapers in there for your phones too.  For those who are into ringtones... and my music, this is especially for YOU!

PR: Wale/P.O.S./Dessa Producer Lazerbeak Solo Album


From Girlie Action:

Wale/P.O.S./Dessa Producer Lazerbeak to Release Debut Solo Album

Click HERE to Stream/Download “Salt and Sea” - http://girlieaction.com/music/lazerbeak/downloads/Salt_And_Sea.mp3 .

Legend Recognize Legend (September 28th; Doomtree Records) is the first solo project from Lazerbeak, one of the most prolific members of the Doomtree collective. As a beatmaker, Beak has contributed propulsive, neck-snapping production to Wale, P.O.S., Dessa, and almost every Doomtree project. Now he is stepping into the spotlight with a sound of his own.  Combining elements of indie rock, pop, and hip hop production, Legend Recognize Legend is bolstered by layers of keyboards, live strings, horns, drum breaks, and group vocals.

Beak wrote, arranged, and sang on the entire record, with contributions from his Doomtree cohorts and members of his former band, The Plastic Constellations (who toured with The Hold Steady and signed to Frenchkiss Records). On Legend Recognize Legend, you can hear evidence of Lazerbeak’s musical history.  It’s got the polyrhythmic signature of a beatmaker, with layered breaks that create inventive, galloping cadences.  However, the songs also feature the earnest, candid vocals that made The Plastic Constellations so disarming and infectious – winning them praise from media outlets as disparate as Pitchfork and Reader’s Digest.
 
Legend Recognize Legend is not a calculated fusion record though, and it charts a clear course apart from Beak’s past projects.  On “Salt and Sea,” he embarks on a deep-sea adventure about learning love’s lessons through hardship; fittingly, the track features his wife’s backup vocals.  On “Let It Go,” he sings about meeting death without fear, and about the future on the horizon.  But for all the weighty themes, the record isn’t a sad one.  Legend Recognize Legendis about the way the world is, the way it ought to be, and the belief that the divide between the two isn’t so impassable.
