[Facebook]Editorial courtesy of Steve 'Flash' Juon:

Video: Has-Lo & Castle - "Good Feelings"

MMG: After the release of their new project, Live Like You're Dead, Has-Lo & Castle are giving us Good Feelings. The feel good song is laced with fun loving non-sequitors and an irony drenched look at modern culture. But mostly, it's a look at a barbeque. Grab a Capri Sun and a Push Pop and kick back with Castle and relax.

Video: CashFlow - "Harlem State Of Mind"

Promo MS: As he preps his ‘Cash Is King’ mixtape for release later this year, NYC standout Cashflow makes things staunchly clear about where he is from, Harlem, USA. Choosing Nas’ classic instrumental for ‘NY State Of Mind’ as the backdrop, Cashflow advises us not to forget his neighborhood’s gritty history on ‘Harlem State Of Mind’. Draped in New York City’s signature hustler attire consisting of an Adidas tracksuit, rolex, and a part in his waves, Cashflow is flanked by his all white beamer as his lyrics paint the dark picture of Harlem’s seamy underbelly.

Audio: Conflicthiphop - "Life Is Hard (LoopholeUK Remix)"

""Life is Hard was already a big track in its own right on SoundCloud by the respected UK Hip-hop artist Conflict-Hip-hop. We were really inspired by Conflict’s lyrics and when he put the acapella out for remix we absolutely had to work on it. The track is all about the struggle, as in the struggle through life and its various challenges.. Hopefully after listening to the mix you’ll feel that even though life is hard, good music can make it a bit easier... I think ultimately that’s what we really wanted to achieve with it.."
