From Big Bang Records:

MP3: Virtuoso f/ Akrobatik, Casual - "No Fear" (prod. Blue Sky Black Death)

Hip-hop legend Virtuoso is back with another display of his trademark tongue twisting lyricism over concussive production. This time he has enlisted the assistance of long time collaborators Akrobatik (of The Perceptionists) and Casual (of Hieroglyphics). “No Fear” is a sure-fire fan favorite combining two of Virtuoso's closest collaborators over production from iconoclastic indie production powerhouse Blue Sky Black Death.

"No Fear" is available for free download at any of the following urls:

Devo Spice Update - 2/25/2011: New Song


From Devo Spice:

Devo Spice Update - 2/25/2011: New Song

--== NEW SONG ON THE FUMP ==--
--== COMMENTARY ON THE INSIDER ==--
--== INTERVIEW ON THE HIP HOP SHOP ==--

--== NEW SONG ON THE FUMP ==--
I posted a new song on The FuMP today called Enhanced.  I have never been a fan of plastic surgery, especially excessive plastic surgery, so when I was looking to parody the song Fancy by Drake I came up with Enhanced and a parody was born.

I have to give a big shout out to Chris Mezzolesta from Power Salad who came through big time in helping me re-create that annoying sample in the background of the song.

You can download Enhanced for free here:
http://www.thefump.com/fump.php?id=1392

--== COMMENTARY ON THE INSIDER ==--
To accompany the song, today's episode of The Insider Album Podcast, where I play one song from my upcoming album Gnome Sane, features Enhanced as well, along with full commentary on the song. I go into some detail about the construction of the song as well as my feelings on plastic surgery in general.

--== INTERVIEW ON THE HIP HOP SHOP ==--
A couple weeks ago I was interviewed on The Hip Hop Shop and I forgot to mention it in my previous email.  (Sorry, Flash!)  Flash and I discuss my new album, plus some general geeky topics like Twitter and Doctor Who.

The Hip Hop Shop is a hip hop podcast hosted at RapReviews.com.  Download and listen to the episode here:

--==x==--

That's all for now, folks.  Please help me spread the word about my new album, the iTunes rush on April 1st, and my album podcast on The Insider.  I'm going to be making a promo shortly for people to run and spread around.  As soon as I get a moment to breathe.

See you at MarsCon!
