New Audio: David Banner f/ Maino "Castles In Brooklyn"

Here’s the new single, “Let Me In,” f/Tank (produced by David Banner & Swiff D) from David Banner’s upcoming free LP, “Sex, Drugs and Video Games,” scheduled to released on 5-22-2012.     “Sex, Drugs and Video Games” is a free LP, but Banner is asking for fans to support “The Movement”.  The goal of “Sex, Drugs & Video Games” is to show the world Urban music is still valuable. And how is he going to do that? Banner needs 2 million of you to download this mixtape for free, then he needs the same 2 million of you to donate at least $1 to the movement; but feel free to donate more, as there is no maximum donation.

And what is “The Movement” you may ask? This movement is to start controlling our own music, movies and content…PERIOD! As David Banner states “We are not simply characters in a video game being controlled by the invisible hand.  Once this donation goal is met, I’m going to shoot a movie that will drop 5-22-2013 and a portion of the donations are also going to charity.  Download this LP for FREE and make sure to support the movement."

One of the highest respects that a hip-hop legend can offer to a rising artist is to invite that rising artist to take part in their own project. That's exactly what happened when legendary Wu-Tang Clan rapper Raekwon invited Chicago's L.E.P. Bogus Boys to take part in his Unexpected Victory EP. The project was highly lauded, and this collaboration, "This Shit Hard," in particular, became a quick fan-favorite.

PR: Drapht - "Sing It (The Life of Riley)" f/ on MTV Iggy

From Jerry Graham:

PR: Drapht - "Sing It (The Life of Riley)" f/ on MTV Iggy

New York, NY- MTV Iggy is featuring the video for “Sing It (The Life Of Riley)” by Drapht. The melodic whistle and drum-break laden tune is the perfect soundboard for Australian emcee, Drapht to reminisce about his childhood until now in a life surrounded by hip hop. The video reflects this narration in a dream-like state with Drapht opening doors of his past, sometimes with metaphors including a cypher with masked animals. The song which is the title track of Drapht’s newest album “The Life Of Riley” drops in the U.S. on May 8th and is already certified gold in his homeland of Australia. It’s worth noting that last year only two Australian artists had Number 1 records in their homeland, by now you are all familiar with Gotye..Now it’s time you met with other guy!


Speaking on the track, Drapht (aka Paul Ridge) says “It was by far the hardest track to break the back of for the album. However I think that had more to do with the bullshit summer Perth was having and having no air conditioning in my home studio for its entirety. The content of the song is based around - growing up and being unknowingly influenced by other peoples’ choices. Realizing 15 years down the track that like it or not, if it wasn't for these people you would’nt be in the same position you are today.” 

A video for the break-away single “Rapunzel” (which reached double platinum sales status) was recently featured in the U.S. on Crave Online ( The two videos viewable now give an example of the range of Drapht’s music which incorporates elements of live instrumentation with samples that traverse through a record collection without boundaries and topped with the emcee’s uncanny sense of lyrical hooks. The album features production from long time musical collaborator Trials (also from Aussie hip hop outfit, Funkoars) as well as a veritable treasure trove of guest emcees (Nfa, Urthboy, Mantra) outside musicians, producers (M-Phazes) and singers (Abbe May, Simon Cox).
