Houston, TX ~ Houston's up-and-comer Marcus Manchild is coming to a town near you soon, courtesy of The Smoker's Club Tour, joining Method Man, Curren$y, BIG K.R.I.T and more. The tour will last a little over a month, hitting 32 cities including Phillie, New York, Toronto, Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco, Houston, Atlanta and D.C. First stop will be Toad's Place in New Haven, CT on October 12th. Marcus joins the tour after a week of promotion in his home state, celebrating the drop of his new mixtape, "Preseason 2", hosted by DJ Ill Will and due out September 26th.

The first single off of "Preseason 2" was the Big K.R.I.T. and Travis Porter assisted "A Million" . Next up is "Big Boi Sh*t ft. Killa Kyleon & Bulu." The song was produced by T.A.

Marcus Manchild has been a fixture on Houston's new school scene since joining local independent label, AMG (Authentik Music Group), dropping two projects, "The Preseason" and "SPACEDOUT." It was this second project that produced the break-out hit, "Get Off Me", bringing him to the attention of radio. Marcus' music has amassed over a million views on YouTube over the past couple of years, affording him the opportunity to record with a host of household names in rap. Of course, the labels are calling, but AMG doesn't see a 360 deal in Marcus' future. While Marcus may currently be in the preseason of his career, sources indicate that he is destined for nothing less than the majors.

DaVinci: A Fillmore Story from WEREHAUS.

In March 2010, DaVinci released The Day The Turf Stood Still, a truly striking debut album, and one that allowed listeners to share DaVinci's gaze as he watched his neighborhood, the historic Fillmore District in San Francisco, experience an overhaul due to impacts of gentrification and urban renewal. DaVinci's new EP, Feast Or Famine , released for free download late last month through his label, SWTBRDS, largely follows in those footsteps, while taking a broader look at the ills that affect – both good and bad – inner city communities across America."

Central to both projects is DaVinci's quest to find a voice that not only represents his own views, but also the struggle, pain, and celebration of those around him. And, inspired by the young rapper's work, Brian Chu and Austin Chu, collectively, set out to capture just that with their mini-documentary, "DaVinci: A Fillmore Story."

"Working on this project with SWTBRDS and DaVinci has been more than we could have asked for," explain Brian and Austin, noting that the project was their attempt to create, "an honest piece about the struggle to find oneself, and develop a voice that represents where one's from." Opening with an acapella take on a verse from previous single "D.R.E.A.M.," the mini-documentary chronicles DaVinci traveling throughout the city – home, the studio – as he speaks on how growing up in The Fillmore impacts his outlook on life, the struggle and care for others that permeates his music, and much more.

MC KHINGZ reps Seattle's southside to the fullest and unleashes his demons on the REL!G!ON-produced "Monster's Lib", the first single from the former gangster turned poet's new album Liberation Of The Monster.  Feeling boxed in by labels and expectations of fans and friends who tried to subtly direct him to a more spoken word bohemian feel, KHINGZ reacts with this visceral and at times painful album; a declaration that he will not be boxed in or defined by anything but his own actions or anyone but his own heart. Listen, digest and free your inner beast.
