I like working with Nay because I can be myself.  She brings out the things in me I tend to hide. - Timothy Rhyme

Set for immediate release.

Nay The Producer releases her 1st project titled "Long Way From Home" Hosted by Miss Special.  Download her FREE mixtape and stay updated with all the latest news & music on Nay The Producer at .

"The producer is the point guard of the music business.  Like a point guard, the producer has to make connections to ensure the track sounds right (the pass), set up things that aren't there by creating beats and arranging melodies for artists to rock with (the drive), and the producer has to be on their grind facilitating, promoting, and running their business (running plays). It's rare that a producer can put together all the talent available in their circle just as it is rare that you get a GREAT point guard."

Nay molded a project by taking her inner circle, life, and passion then melting them together to create a final masterpiece.  With features from The Kid Rated R, Timothy Rhyme, Rymo, Barnone, Mr. Ej Jones, Jeff K., Noah-O, Just Visionz & many more. The creative concepts packed like luggage in the overhead bin, your only option is to download the mixtape if you want to experience the trip. This project is something very rare to be birthed in today's world, something that your ears have been yearning for, Real Music!  Nay is definitely a Long Way From Home and a short way from greatness.  - Too Fast!

Big thanks to Miss Special for being apart of this project and hosting, you can check her out on Special Sundays Radio Show every Sunday from 2pm-4pm on KSFS .

This project is dedicated to Margo E. (RIP Mom).

Rec-League MP3: Proe - "Box Cutter Johnny"

Courtesy Routine Fly.

Here is the first official song from the new Proe album "Be Brave, Gladiator" which will be released on Jan 1st 2012.   This album Proe is a follow up to his very successful sophomore record "Perfect" in 2005.  To keep us busy, last year Proe released his mixtape "Whatever You're On I'll Take 2".  

Following that release, Proe promised that his next album would be very different from his mixtape releases...  Let's just say we are not disappointed at all.  So here it is for your listening pleasure, "Box Cutter Johnny", free and delivered straight to your eardrums compliments of Proe and Routine Fly.

Fdot1 - Eart'Quake (Da Refix)

Fdot1 has been locked in the lab since his appearance at The O2 this summer working on some hip hop bangers for 2012.. He has briefly emerged, squinting at the light, to share this tirade with y'all.

Fdot1 left his soft, soulful side at the studio door, stepped in the booth and got MAD!

Mad at the way the UK urban music scene treats real talent, he goes IN on Labrinth's Earthquake beat.  The video was a no budget production, filmed in a car park by his manager and edited by Fdot1 himself.

No make-up, no fancy animations, no designer wardrobe and no BULL, just raw flows more intricate than anything that's getting major airplay in the UK right now.

This production was brought to you by the letters F and U.

Press Release: Love Is On Hiatus - Out Now!!

Press Release: Love Is On Hiatus - Out Now!!

Have you purchased your copy of LOVE IS ON HIATUS yet?

See why JNATURAL's debut album held the top 5 position on the CMJ hip hop charts for over 8 weeks!!  And why OkayPlayer has compared it to Lauryn Hill's opus magnum. -- deluxe version -- normal

or get your physical copy from our friends at UGHH!


Here's what some people are saying about JNATURAL

URB - "JNaturaL is LA's hottest upcoming female emcee"

Rap Reviews - "Even when she talks about sex, baby, she does so in a more refined and less crass way than other rappers who seem singularly focused on charming men into doing their bidding through sex appeal. In this way she becomes the West coast version of Jean Grae, not fearing the power of her vocal and bodily appeal, but more likely to appeal to both her male and female audience through the power of her mind and her oration."

Scratched Vinyl - "JNatural might be small in stature, but when I saw her in concert recently, she commanded the attention of men twice her size. She possesses a big voice and switches between a soulful singing voice that’s reminiscent of Joyo Velarde and a rapping style that is obviously influenced by her Project Blowed elders."

1-on-1 Lessons and Song Collaborations. 
 *Over the past year (which has been long and chaotic to say the least)  I have received a significant number of emails from folks expressing interest in taking advantage of my 1-on-1 "Rap" course, as well as numerous requests from artists looking to create collab tracks together. This winter will be spent doing both, so for those of you who have been patiently waiting and who are serious now is the time to reach out. I would love to follow through and fulfill your requests. Contact me at this email address with either: "Collab" or "1-on-1" in the subject field. Thanks. -Chris
