Video: Copywrite - "Love" f/ Tage Future (Of MHz) prod by Bronze Nazareth
Courtesy Matt B.
I will let Copy take it from here “For Copy so loves the world, I'm giving you all a video we worked really hard on. The song is called "Love". Wu-Tang's Bronze Nazareth did the beat, Tage Future (of MHz) & myself did the words & the imperial DJ Scratch Johnson, formerly known as DJ Drastic did the cuts. "Love" is from my third studio album, God Save The King, which drops Feb 28th and is in my opinion my best work to date. Much love & don't forget to tell a stranger you love 'em today.Follow me on twitter if you dig it @COPYWRITE."
Chilly Gonzales Announces U.S. Tour, Shares New Piano Mix

He plays the piano, he talks. He usually raps, often complains and, between moments of utter musical genius and grace, teaches the audience the joys of improvisation. The one and only Chilly Gonzales is back, with the announcement of a North American tour in April, and the promise of a new album, Solo Piano II, coming later this year on Arts & Crafts. Gonzales is also sharing a minimix he made for Annie Mac’s show on Radio 1, which you can snag here: http://www.girlieaction.com/misc/Chilly_Gonzalez_Radio_1_Minimix.mp3 .
Chilly Gonzales has had quite a decade as an accomplished pianist, producer, MC, entertainer and more. He holds the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest live piano performance (27 hours, 3 minutes and 44 seconds), and has produced influential albums from Feist to Peaches, on top of countless collaborations, with folks as diverse as Andrew W.K., A-Trak, Jamie Lidell, La Roux and Drake.
In 2010, Gonzales co-wrote, starred in, and scored the hilarious feature film Ivory Tower, which co-starred Peaches, Feist and Tiga and with a soundtrack by Boys Noize. The film will be getting an official VOD release through iTunes in April to coincide with his North America tour. Chilly will also be releasing his first live DVD, “The Unspeakable Chilly Gonzales live with Orchestra” in April. More details on that coming soon!
Free EP: League510 - LoveMeSoSlowlyTenderKnockinCupcakinMusic EP

League510 is excited to release their brand new EP, LoveMeSoSlowlyTenderKnockingCupcakingMusic. The seven-track project, made to celebrate the birthday of group member Mr. Knowitall's, and, of course, to show the ladies some love on Valentine's Day, is now available for free download via the group's Bandcamp.
The EP's name may be a mouthful, but the project is a collection of smooth-flowing, romantically themed songs that does well to showcase the League's ability to explore new sounds and styles. "This EP has a more mellow tone and is less energetic than our previous efforts," explains TK, noting that the group also used their new EP to incorporate more singing into their sound.
Those elements show up throughout, on tracks like "Hey Love," which League refers to as a "romantic party jammer," and "Remotely In Love," a song that finds the group flipping TV show titles to, as they say, "metaphorically express our feelings for the women we admire." And while this new EP marks a few firsts for League510 stylistically, fans can look forward to these new sounds coming through in future music, including League's forthcoming LP, To The Beat. "We experimented with this project," notes the group, "but musically and melodically we'll include elements of this EP in our upcoming LP."
New project from Nems with 20 gutter tracks featuring Iron Solomon, Jedi Mind Tricks, Torae, Block McCloud, Shaz Illyork, Poison Pen, Slaine and many more. 5 bonus songs will be exclusively available on iTunes.
Artist Mini- Bio: Current Oakland emcee (by way of Chicago and Minneapolis), Charity Clay has worked tirelessly honing her craft to insure a quality product is provided to her listeners. Her first release, the 2009 "Forced to Freestyle" was an introduction to her freestyling and storytelling ability as well as a display of her passion and respect for the culture and talent with lyricism. Since then, the rhyme slinger also known as CDot the Catalyst has grown by leaps and bounds as both a writer and artist as she readies the March release of her official debut album "The Smokey Winston Project Redux".
