We appreciate all the love and support you been giving, so call it showing up to the game, call it a donation, call it pity or (let's be real) call it 99 cents towards booze money for us to continue to find inspiration through various shades of light and dark...

Keep tuned in, we'll be leaking a new track every week leading up to the
release of our LP "One Man's Trash..."

(Note: this is a beat Poach got from Black Milk/Mellow Music Group, and his dumb ass sat on it too long. So long in fact, that by the time we finished the track and realized where it came from, it was sold. No animals were hurt during the completion of Let You Go, but Poach surely was.)

PR: Zion I & The Grouch f/ Silk-E - "Rockit Man"

Zion I & The Grouch f/ Silk-E - "Rockit Man"

* *

Oakland, CA--March 2011--West Coast hip-hop greats Zion I & The Grouch drop their latest single “Rockit Man" featuring Bay Area singer-rapper Silk- E. The track, off their forthcoming March album, Heroes in the Healing of the Nation is loosely based on maturation and ascension as a person explains The Grouch.

“She nailed the chorus," The Grouch adds of the Bay Area new-comer and one of a handful of females on the scene. "Since "Rockit Man" was one of the first song recorded for the album--and I knew it was going to be one of my favorites--I felt like we had to make all the other songs fit and stand next to that one.”

"This song is about struggling to shake old fears and misgivings," explains Zumbi. "Once we let them go, we make way for the next level of transcendence. This is what a Rockit Man does...daily."

“Rockit Man” is available as a free download at And, fans who pre-order the album on the website will also get an instant download of the album track “Drop It On The 1”, and a bonus song “Heroes”.

Finally, the trio have announced additional tour dates for their Healing of the Nation Tour, which kicks off at the Fillmore in San Francisco on March 19, with Blu, One Be Lo, and The Jazz Mafia's Shotgun Wedding Quintet. The group has partnered up with a different community organization in every city and will be donating 100% of all ticketing fees sold through ZioniandTheGrouch

MP3: Donwill - "Love Junkie (So Shifty Remix)"

From Audible Treats:

MP3: Donwill - "Love Junkie (So Shifty Remix)"

DJ Eleven's 11 Inch Records Celebrates Release Of Donwill's Love Junkie EP With Lead Single

Critical Praise for Tanya Morgan:

"This Brooklyn-Cincinnati hip-hop trio summoned old-school cheer, goofy skits and indelible hooks for a left-field masterpiece." - Rated #1 Album across all genres for 2009 by Steve Smith, Time Out New York's Music Editor

The Song:

Don't get it twisted; Donwill is still very much a part of Tanya Morgan, but since last year's release of his album Don Cusack In High Fidelity, the Cincinnati-born, Brooklyn-based rapper has been taking out time to carve out his solo niche. One of the standout tracks from Don Cusack was “Love Junkie,” the ode to one-night stands, which featured Peter Hadar and Harlems Cash. After hearing the remix, which features Wallpaper and San Francisco's premier rhythm section, The Park, founding member of the renowned DJ crew The Rub DJ Eleven recruited Donwill to officially release a full Love Junkie EP on his own 11 Inch Records.

"I've been a Tanya Morgan fan for a minute, so when I heard the remix Donwill did with Wallpaper, I was sold" says DJ Eleven. In addition to the Wallpaper remix of “Love Junkie,” the EP also includes “Look At Me,” an all new b-side produced by 1-O.A.K of The Honor Roll, and a So Shifty remix of “Love Junkie.”

The "Love Junkie (So Shifty Remix)" is easily the most adventurous remix on the EP, with the Hamburg, Germany-based DJ and production duo providing a House-infused thumping, syncopated drum beat, along with a mix of fluttering and stabbing synth lines to accompany the chopped and often pitched and effects-laden vocals placed throughout the track.

Donwill and DJ Eleven's Love Junkie EP is the sixth release from 11 Inch Records and is available now via all digital retailers.

The maxi-single of "Laura's Song," complete with the album version, radio edit, instrumental and a couple of remixes is now available for purchase on iTunes. "Love Junkie (So Shifty Remix)" is now available everywhere via 11 Inch Records.

TRAP STAR 3/1/11

Scavie Scoobs, 1/3 of the critically acclaimed LA hip-hop collective, Custom Made, debuts with his street album Trap Star. Featuring Custom Made, Mac Lucci (Hustle Boyz), 2Eleven (USDA), Da Rilla, Tone Hookz, Supa Sonic (Phamous Nobodies) and production from THX, Abstrakt Soundz, Frank Dukes and Finesse.

Scoobs is an Italian-American emcee from the Mid-City area of Los Angeles, CA. As a teenager he would later relocate to Hawthorne, CA where he would form Custom Made in 2002 with high school classmates Bluff and Element. The group would go on to drop countless mixtapes and indie albums such as Sidewalk Mindtalk (Babygrande/2006), Original Dynasty (Babygrande/2008), Truth Be Told (Rawkus/2007) and Hi-Def (Coalmine/2010).

After all these years recording with Custom Made, Scoobs has now decided to focus on his solo career. “With Trap Star I want to show what I bring to the table as far as a solo artist,” explains Scoobs. “I represent that young fly thug shit. It’s all about this Cali lavi lifestyle.”

With this project Scoobs aims to show he’s more than just a star in the streets, but behind the microphone as well.
