The king of rapid fire rhyme, the Dirtball has been added to House of Pain’s upcoming “He Who Breaks The Law” reunion tour alongside Big B and Sozay. Dirtball is currently touring in support of his recently released new solo album “Nervous System”.
“I remember when I saw House of Pain live back in the day, and thought how dope it would be to share the stage with them. Now here I am in 2011 and things have come full circle as Everlast and DannyBoy have invited me to join their ‘He Who Breaks The Law’ reunion tour,” commented Dirtball. “I am honored to share the stage with House Of Pain and excited to perform an explosive set of bangers from my new solo album ‘Nervous System” for a whole new audience. I can’t wait to see all the party people out on the road! Bang Loud!”
The Kottonmouth Kings’ own Dirtball is asking fans to join him on a journey through the complex, twisted psyche of his mind on his new solo album “Nervous System”. The album plays out like a twisted audio sequel to "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas", as Dirtball uses his machinegun delivery to attack a collection of banging West Coast beats with monstrous results.

Nino's music is a mix of sarcastic punchlines, vivid storytelling, and charisma, over hot production. There is no topic that Nino is scared to touch, describing his music as a mixture between South Park and The Dave Chappelle Show.
Opening up for such artists as Chingy and Tyrees, Nino Punchlines has performed all over the Chicagoland market. Nino has appeared on such mixtapes as DJ Nell 7's Good Music Series, The Woods Series, DJ Nurotic's My City Vol 1., J Atty's How to Stunt Vol 2., Philosopha's Streets of Chicago Vol 2. and DJ Slugo's Respect My Grine' Vol 1.

Big Bang Records & EMS Productions connect to bring you a powerhouse posse cut featuring the best independent emcees out today.
This thunderous display of lyricism connects recent Boston Music Award winner M-Dot with underground hip-hop legend Virtuoso, Army of the Pharoahs member King Magnetic, cult favorite Singapore Kane, hugely popular true-school duo N.B.S. (E'Flash & V.Knuckles), and Red Eye (of The Closers). All over production courtesy of the European hip-hop collective Snowgoons (who featured M-Dot, Virtuoso, and N.B.S. on their recent album "Kraftwerk")
Big Bang Records, Mr. Peter Parker, DJ Dow Jones, and Shadyville DJ's worldwide bring you the second visual from the ground breaking compilation "The Free Trade Agreement" (following the thunderous Warren G produced cut featuring Bishop Lamont, Nate Dogg, and Sonnreal). Dow Jones and Peter Parker enlist the services of long time collaborators N.B.S. (E'Flash and V.Knuckles) for this monstrous cross-national anthem entitled "Champions". N.B.S. once again displays their always impressive verbal abilities trading verses atop of the production by Canadian wunderkind Keenotherapy, with visuals provided by the always innovative 20/20 Vizin.
The northeastern portion of the country is in for a visit from newly formed urban music entity Abstract Music Group and their flagship artist, Savant aka Stanstro. In just one week, the RAREBREED emcee will be headlining his first tour of sorts as he leaves from Philadelphia on March 11th with fellow Abstract Music Group affiliates Rasheed Chappell and DJ Uneek (also of M.O.P.) and culminates in Boston on March 18th. Also performing on the Abstract Music Spring Tour 2011 (co-sponsored by Brooklyn Bodega) are John Public, Jake Lefco, Rising Sun Quest, Sketch the Cataclysm, Catch Wreck and OneThree Music affiliates ASN, Re-Surch and Purpose of the Tragic Allies. Diggers Union’s newest inductee, DJ Books will be manning the wheels of steel in Boston.
Slated to rock 5 locations, the Chicago bred Savant is touring mostly to promote the arrival of Abstract Music Group as a driving force in independent music, but also to promote his latest music endeavors, the leak series, "Crash Course" and the subsequent EP "Crash". In "Crash Course", Savant has been releasing a new record twice a month since December 2010, with the vast majority of the songs featuring at least one guest spot. This will continue until the May release of his sophomore project, the Fess Grandiose produced and ThaGoodLifeReviews.com co-sponsored "Crash". You can catch up with Savant's leak series at both his SoundCloud and BandCamp pages and his EP will be available from both his BandCamp and ThaGoodLifeReviews.com.
