Field Boy Music Group presents Smoke, 1/2 of the Grammy-award winning duo Field Mob. He is back with his latest project KANG.

KANG is an acronym meaning Kuntry
Ass Ni**as Grindin
, which could not be any more synonymous with Smoke.

He has been consistently dropping singles, rocking shows, working with other artists, and recordinng.

Kang is a project that has been in the works for a while, but Smoke does not like to release music just to drop it, he is a perfectionist and
music to him is truly an art form. Kang has production from some of the best producers in the industry, along with some Major features.

This is not a mixtape, but a street album that will continue to prove that Smoke is a KANG!

So many artist try to do everyone else, when they're dusting them self off and jumping off the shelf. If you love-love, get this album "I Miss Us", it covers love from every angle.

Check out "Heaven", which is the 1st video from "Houston, Texas" rapper "hasHBrown's" LP "Break Something" due to release on November 30th.

Hailing from Houston, "hasHBrown" (aka producer Jett I. Masstyr) dabbles in double duties as both emcee and producer


He got his start in 2003, rapping in the collective "The Council", alongside other locals John Dew and Hip-Phonix. Riding off the buzz from their 2005 EP "Black Bleach", "hasHBrown" began his solo endeavor, dropping various mixtapes until this past February when he dropped his "Relationsh*t" EP, considered by fans and critics as his best work to date

Now, "hasHBrown" will release "Break Something", a dramatically different work where the rapper/producer strays from soul samples and ventures more into the world of rock and funk

"Break Something", which features guests like Guilty Simpson, Dustin Prestige, Dannie Walker, and John Dew, will be available for free download November 30th.
