Video: Joell Ortiz – On Da Spot Freestyle

Whenever you come through DJ Green Lantern’s show, more than likely, he’ll put you on the On Da Spot; his version of doing a freestyle on the radio.

Video: Court Dunn x Yelawolf - Signature Drop #3

Every day this week I’ll be releasing one drop from a different artist at SXSW. As you’ll see, I’ve put my own stylistic spin on the traditional “drop” and have overlayed each video with the artist’s autograph. – Court

Marky - Victory Lap

The track is about me winning my race before it starts. Nobody is in charge of my fate or destiny in my life except God. I believe that each and everyday I wake up. The music industry is full of deception and flakey business practices. I know that if I keep my eyes on the finish line then God will make sure I win like I'm suppose to. Can't nobody block what's coming to me. Its inevitable.
 Look out for the "Journey to Markyland, USA: Rest Stop 1" EP Presented by 2DopeBoyz coming soon.

Tre Songz Covers VIBE (April / May 2010)

Trigga graces one of the two covers of the latest VIBE edition. Jeezy being the other one. Is he really the hardest in R&B? I’d have to agree with that, at the moment.

Rapper Blitz Uses Old Tricks For New Pursuits

Rapper/composer Blitz The Ambassador may be fairly new to the game, but he's got the smarts of a veteran when it comes to branding.

The 27-year-old Brooklyn MC says plenty of times he's walked by people wearing his promotional T-shirt on the streets, which he designed himself. Depicting a suited man with a stereo in place of his head, holding a pistol to it while blood gushes from the other end, the image is the same Blitz -- a self-professed "visual artist" -- used for his latest album cover. "They pass me and they don't even know it's me," he chuckles.

Video: Kokane – Killing Fields

Here’s what he has to say about the Da Dah directed video:
This song is a reflection of the social ills of society and the world. I wanted to touch on this subject matter, because it’s needed in the world today. Everybody ain’t got diamonds, money and bitches, it seems like music today is geared towards demoralizing God like principles and family structure. Not to judge anyone because I am a work in progress myself, but this video is the truth and the truth will set you free. My advice to the world is don’t be playing in them Killing Fields!

Little Brother – Star (prod. by 9th Wonder)

Aiight folks, backstory on Star:
This was recorded back in ‘05-06 at Young Guru’s crib sometime after the release of The Minstrel Show.
This was intended for Leftback as an iTunes bonus track but we just got word today that @9thwondermusic doesn’t want us to use it for whatever reason, and that’s fine.
In any event, I’m not gonna let anything or anybody stop me from getting music to my fans. Fuck that.

Mixtape: Choze & JustNice – Respect Earned: The Remixes

Today I would like to bring you Respect Earned: The Remixes, the official remix EP to Choze & JustNice’s Respect Earned LP released last Christmas. Presented by Sound-Society.Net & and mixed entirely by myself. Here is a write up below
Last Summer, Choze & JustNice set out on their journey to create the perfect project. A project that would showcase their ability and allow them to take what is truly theirs. They worked tirelessly and through it all, they created a project was recognized by some of the most respected people and blogs in the game (including Kevin Nottingham, DDotOmen & Hip-Hop Update). Soon after, Choze’s manager and former DJ, Natac, began to blend records again and offered to do a remix of their record Drive. From there, they never turned back, setting out, once again to re-create a truly special project for the fans to enjoy. The project features production from Bangladesh, Hi-Tek, 9th Wonder, Sledgren & much more.
Hit the jump for the tracklist.
