Trae Tha Truth's 3rd Annual 'Trae Day' Goes On Without Incident

From Nancy Byron:

Houston, TX - Thursday, July 22nd marked the 3rd anniversary of Houston rapper, Trae Tha Truth's annual celebration of Trae Day and despite the fact that Mother Nature was less than cooperative, gracing the crowd with her uglier side, the thousands that attended seemed barely to notice.

Instead, they showed all of the enthusiasm and support due an entertainer who had clearly gone out of his way to show his appreciation and support of them. Nationally known artists like Lupe Fiasco, Young Buck, Yo Gotti, Gorilla Zoe and Young Money signees Jae Millz and Lil Chuckee joined Trae on stage with media outlets like MTV News' Shaheem Reid and Rahman Dukes, Ozone's Julia Beverly, Sirius' Angela Yee and XXL's Brooklyne Gipson on hand to capture it all for posterity.

Trae Day was definitely a day for family and Trae proudly sported the latest addition to his, baby son Houston. School supplies were given out to those less fortunate, as were free back-to-school immunizations and health screenings.

As the days festivities drew to a close, the massive crowd dispersed peacefully, making it the perfect end to the perfect day.

The message of the day seemed to be "you can't ban the truth" and if the size of the crowd, without the support of local radio for the event, is anything to go by, the message indeed holds true. Trae intends to keep that message alive. His Can't Ban Tha Truth mixtape drops August 24th and will feature Lupe Fiasco, T-Pain, Yo Gotti, Jae Millz, Yung Quis, Gutta Gutta, Jay'Ton and more. Stand by for details.............

DJ Green Lantern Collaborates With NEFEW For Next Project

From Melanie J Cornish:


After the rampant success of their Antihero Begins mixtape released in the Spring, Hip-Hop duo, Nefew knew the pressure would be on to equal if not better the buzz that their 2DopeBoyz and Puma presented project caused. Having been hard at work since April on new concepts and ideas for their follow up, Polemikk and PA Double have aligned themselves with a strong supporting cast for their sophomore free download, MAN VS MANY.

With the guidance, direction and assistance of world renowned DJ, Green Lantern, Nefew know they are in capable hands on this project. Opting to work with an eclectic bunch of musicians, producers and performers is a rarity for the European based duo, but was embraced for MAN VS MANY. These unions continue to showcase their capabilities in creating music, solidifying their name and brand in Hip-Hop.

“It’s definitely a privilege to work with Green Lantern on our second official mixtape. Hip Hop and music fans can look forward to a rap album with epic production and a lot of depth. The concept behind “Man vs. Many” is simple: Be yourself and don’t follow trends. If you’re talented and you’re willing to work hard for what you believe in, you’ll get there, although you might face a lot of conflicts along the way, mostly with yourself. ”- POLEMIKK

“This mixtape is going to be enormous, much stronger than the antihero begins and I’m very happy with the selection of collaborations. I don’t believe in randomly picking artists just to have a feature to generate a buzz. The features we picked are artists that follow similar musical values, and you’ll soon find out that we achieved a perfect match. This is a great opportunity for us to really to expand and show the world who Nefew is and what we stand for.”PA DOUBLE

MAN VS MANY will be available in September and will compliment what NEFEW have been up to in between their two 2010 releases. Relentless work in the studio combined with intricate planning for this release will see this musical chapter as welcomed, as it is influential.

From Dunn Deal PR:

MP3: E Reece f. El Prez/Tunji, "Don't Front"

To celebrate the official album release of Concrete Steppin, E Reece shares a third leak with the track "Don't Front"  featuring fellow L.A. emcees El Prez and Tunji. This track, as well as the first single "Fly Hi" and "The Game" (produced by Oddisee), are just a sliver of great music that can be heard on Concrete Steppin, which is available now on iTunes and Amazon ***FYI - Both companies messed up with the track listing, so #10 is actually "Feel Good" (feat. Othello) and #11 is actually "It's Over" (feat. Buff1)***

Download "Don't Front": .

Tune into Cypher Lounge Radio tomorrow night at 7pm PT / 10pm ET on Blog Talk Radio to hear E Reece talk about the album in more detail.

MP3: Zane One - "Zane One (L.A. Woman)"

From Audible Treats:

MP3: Zane One - "Zane One (L.A. Woman)"

To Follow-Up On Her Latest Video, Zane One Releases Debut Single From L.A. Woman

The Song:

Even as she drops her debut album, L.A. Woman, Zane One is no stranger to hip-hop. With her latest single, "Zane One (L.A. Woman)," for which she just released a new video, Zane brings us back to the days when dope lyrics matched seamlessly with equally killer rhymes and turntables conquered the hooks. Along with her confident rhymes such as, "Serve them with the daily supplements and keep them hazy," the song is blessed with some skillfully done vocal scratches of both Lauryn Hill and M.C. Lyte as an ode to female rappers. Produced by Dert, the beat's distorted guitar riff is lined with hard, crispy drum work to back up the assertive flow, which Zane One delivers with confident ease. Not only does Zane One refer to her extensive hip-hop resume throughout the song, but she also points out what makes her truly unique as an M.C., including her motherhood, as she keeps her rhymes on task with a mission to convince all listeners that she is an L.A. Woman who can spit.

Song: .

The Background:

To say that the art of hip-hop is in her blood would be a massive understatement if referring to Zane One. Zane is the last born daughter of a pastor/poet as well as sister and cousin to the members of the legendary Los Angeles underground group LPG. She has opened for Cody Chestnut, and wrote songs alongside John Villa Lobos. With 20 years of hip-hop under her belt, countless shows, classic projects and a strong, unique sense of fashion, Zane will not only remind you why female emcees belong in the game, but also how aggressive and skillful artistry can manifest where you least expect it. An example of that artistry is available now in the form of Zane One (L.A. Woman), Zane One's debut album, courtesy of AudioSketchBook / End Of Earth Records.

At just 19 years old, the rapper B.o.B - born Bobby Ray Simmons - has become a breath of fresh air in Atlanta's snap and trap-obsessed scene. The gifted showman's debut album, B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray, is a fascinating journey into the Atlanta artist's far-reaching imagination.
The album, which debuted atop the Billboard 200 upon its April arrival, is highlighted by a pair of platinum-certified singles in the #1 sensation, "Nothin' On You (Feat. Bruno Mars)" and the top 3 smash, "Airplanes (Feat. Hayley Williams of Paramore)." The latter track is currently #3 with-a-bullet on Billboard's "Hot 100" while also coming in at #2 on both the "Pop Songs" and "Rap Songs" charts. As of this writing, the combined singles sales from both tracks is currently approaching 5 million with no sign of slowing down.
B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray sees the resourceful rapper producing the majority of the album by himself, while also playing multiple musical instruments, including piano, trumpet and French horn. In addition, B.o.B is joined by a star-studded line-up of surprising special guests, including Hayley Williams of Paramore, T.I., Eminem, Janelle Monáe, Weezer's Rivers Cuomo, Playboy Tre, and Lupe Fiasco. Endlessly inventive tracks such as "5th Dimension" and "Magic" offer a funky and fascinating journey into a gifted new talent's far-reaching imagination.
