M-Dot - No Money Down

(Via @RevOfEMS)
M-Dot's New Music video "No Money Down" directed by Zach Voytas (has had several works on MTV2). The video was shot with the same type of camera they used for "Pirates of the Caribbean 3" and was filmed on location in California (the Mojave Desert). The radio single "No Money Down" is off of Commonwealth Records compilation CD A Boston State of Mind Vol.2 out now. The video will also be on Comcast Cable On-Demand soon!!!!

"In the video, M-Dot is a soldier who's lost contact with his troops. He's left to die in the desert but instead he survives and is able to find his way back to civilization with no assistance. The video is a metaphor for his independent mind state in the rap game and how he's grinded his way into every opportunity and blessing that has come his way thus far.
My local homies usually get love but this time they did me the favor, sending this in twice. Luckily I caught it the 2nd time and must I say M-Dot & his crew know how to shoot a video! the angles, the cuts, the focuses, were all in tune with the song making it blend in an absolutely brilliant way. Salute to Zach Voytas who directed this video, you've done very very well for yourself.


J. Smith – Life On The Scene

J. Smith is a 19 year old college student from Philadelphia who started rapping during his freshman year of high school. He found rap to be a way to express his high school experiences. Through that mindset, he created a fanbase amongst his peers. As J. Smith moves forward into college, he plans to continue to make music for his peers, as well as hip-hop lovers around the world.”
I dig the freestyle of K'NAAN's ABCs track, smith has some skills, take a listen.


Black Eyed Peas - Rock That Body (Remix) (Ft. Jo Well)

@JoWell delivers a nice cover of the Black Eyes Peas's Rock That Body. I'm feeling his verse on this one, for those to don't know Jo Well yet, don't be shy, check it out, its a good download.


Hawdwerk & Jansport J- Ride (Music Video)

@Hawdwerk & @JansportJ make some of the livest, most thoughtful music out here, therefore, even though I missed this email because I had finals 2 weeks ago, I'm still posting it because its probably going to be one of the dopest and most genuine videos from anyone without a 5 figure budget. Enjoy!

Nick Rage - Gemini Album Release

Via Ryan at @HHKDotCom
Pittsburgh artist Nick Rage has announced he will be releasing his debut album “Gemini” on May 21st 2010. With features from the likes of Royce Da 5’9, King Gordy and Krizz Kaliko, Gemini is not only vividly imaginative, but powerful through lyricism and great music too. 
Nick Rage has previously released several projects including the high-profiled “Dead to Society” mixtape which was credited with no fewer than 10,000 downloads and listens worldwide. Gemini is built on the foundation of Dead to Society, however the growth of Nick Rage as an artist and song writer clearly shows. 
Gemini will be released digitally via iTunes and all popular online retailers, and a limited number of physical copies are also available which can be pre-ordered through Nick Rage’s official blogspot website. Gemini is available from May 21st.
Courtesy of HHK we also have an exclusive sampler of the album for our try before you buy types out there (you know who you are).

King Zigg Zag - Korduroy Killaz [Beat Tape]

I'm back...and you know what that means. @kingziggzag drops this is a dope ass beat tape. Its worth the download. Tell me "In The Chamber" doesn't go hard. Check out the stream/description/tracklist below.

1.Funk (In The Trunk)
2.Cherry Soda (Hold It Down)
3.Dopeman Blues (187-NARC)
4.Rhythm (It's Life)
5.Never Say Never
6.Pin The Tail (On The Honkey)
7.The World (7 Grams)
8.No Favors
9.From The Grime
10.Ronny Regs (Stemz)
11.Inside My Love (And Yo Mouf)
12.In The Chamber (Regulate)
13.In The Dungeon (Korduroy)

"Okay, you may be wondering what the hell is up with the name of the album, not only that, your wondering who the hell are The 187 Dopemen, and who is that sitting in a cell on the cover? I don't really have too many answers to give other than drugs can really make you do some pretty goofy stuff.. I had come up with all of the details of this album as a total joke.. it was going to be a parody on really old obscure g-funk albums.. the ones with really silly covers and crazy cliche raps about 40 oz's and 64 impalas.. It wasn't hate or anything since I love westcoast hip-hop, but it was just really funny to me. Turns out my g-funk stint didn't really last too long, so I scrapped the idea; but I really liked how the cover turned out, and I actually grew to the name King Zigg Zag.. so I made it official.. I tried to keep the album in the same spirit since I didn't want it to be another idea down the toilet (I also wanted to do a mafioso hip-hopera but that never panned out).. the 187 Dopemen were suppose to be a group of emcees with totally ridiculous names and gimmicks to match my parody. I was even going to go as far as telling people it was some random album from 1994 that I just stumbled upon.. there are some instances where I just can't explain how my mind works, and this is one of them.. either way, the beats are totally serious.. it's just masked with a silly set of titles."

Chiddy Bang - Translation Freestyle

I apologize for the lack of content being posted lately, we've all been busy with other shit but im going to try and get caught up over the next few days here. Enjoy the latest from the dudes outta PA.
"Up and coming hip hop act Chiddy Bang was invited to come into Jay-Z and Steve Stoute's marketing agency, Translation LLC. Cinematographer Kristopher Rey-Talley was on hand to document it, as Noah laid down a beat. Chiddy, instead doing a typical performance, decided to use his Emcee skills and spit for seven minutes straight with no break"

Juve - The Beginning of Something Better

The Beginning of Something Better Cover Art
Next we have @juvesmuzik as I go through my email, catching up on music that I missed out on during my time out. Juve's got some real dope stuff, I see a lot of potential for him to not only grow but build up a fan base while he expands his realm of music and increases his range. Delivery wise, he's above alot of these other guys, lyrics leave some room for improvement or maturation, which will definitely happen over time. Juve wasn't lying when he said this was The Beginning of Something Better, check it out.

Boondocks S3 E1: It's a Black President, Huey Freeman! [Trailer]

Tonight at 11:30. Be There.

Jamieson - So You Know (ft Skyzoo)

Grabbing @TheRealSkyzoo for a track is certainly a winning formula, but London's own Jamieson can definitely hold his own with the bars. The accent might throw you off because it changes his whole flow but this shouldn't be a problem for the open minded. Hip-Hop is Hip-Hop, no matter where it comes from. Via 2DBZ.


Eighty4 Fly - Like Planes

Another dope @eighty4fly track is here, with the help of producer Tom Davids. Davids flips the M.I.A. track paper planes and pulls a dope sample from the popular track to create the beat for this one. Eighty4 goes in on it. I'm excited to see what Jon Augustavo's vision will be, as he directs Eighty4's next video for this track.
