Oakland rap-artists Joe Blow and Lil Rue have released a leaked mixtape track of the two artists spitting over Loverance and IAMSU's Up beat. "Still Beatin Niggas Up" is a play on the original hook as well as a message from both Joe Blow and Lil Rue that in the days of big-talk on records and songs, they're still ready to take it old-school and beat your ass if you don't act right. This track seems to get the attention of everybody who's heard it and is a clever twist on the original song.
Hip Hop is making a major comeback and as the styles change, so does the game. 15 year old, female emcee "Lil Lexy" plans to change the game in her own way, her pursuit to "build an empire".
It all began in Boston, Massachusetts at the age of 4 when her uncle gave Lexy her first Karaoke machine. Preforming at family parties and memorizing all of her favorite music videos, Lexy began writing her first raps at age 7. Lil Lexy continued to preform for crowds any chance she got.
Working with other local artists on her own, the hardships of the music game started becoming apparent but with her hunger to learn and impeccable grind Lexy refused to slow down. Concentrating on keeping her grades up in school and spending every free moment she has in the booth, Lexy knew she needed a foundation for this empire, she brought her talent to Rushya/Rushin Embassy Ent. Roxbury, MA based company/record label. "I was woman enough to fix my mistakes and move forward, I feel like God took me through stress then handed me success to make me realize I'm blessed. You know everything happens for a reason, if I didn't make mistakes I would be young and dumb forever".
With a delivery and flow often compared to legendary female emcee Roxanne Shante, Lexy is already invading the airwaves of Boston radio with her single "No Cinderella". Along side Rushya, Lil Lexy's buzz in Boston is picking up at a rapid rate. Don't let this young female's shy demeanor fool you, put a mic in front of Lil Lexy and watch true talent and ambition shine.

The Greek root word for art is "techne", which is our modern basis for the word "technology". The Greeks didn't see a line between art and technology. They only asked the question, "Is it done well? Then it is art."
I'm not sure about the exact details here, but I'm sure Drumma Boy has produced more #1 hip hop and rap singles than any other producer in the past decade. Drumma Boy doesn't see a line between radio and non-radio hip hop. He's making art. He doesn't make music with the intention of it being #1 on the rap charts - he just makes music. It's a craft he began in the 9th grade....You don't have to be a fan of tire-screechin', chain swangin', blunt blowin', grill showin', rims spinnin', trunk rattlin', ice shinin'... RAP, but after talking to Drumma Boy, I can't help but respect the f**k out of his hustle.
