"Alt Bitcs" (Official Video)

Twitter: @isaiahraps

Richmond, VA rapper Dr. Millionaire presents the Joseph Pleasants-directed music video for "Alt Bitcs", his Hovey Benjamin-produced new single.

 "'Alt Bitcs' is inspired by all tha cute art school babes living in Richmond," explains Dr. Millionaire. "The song describes selling weed and sipping lean and killing shows. References to artists I heard about on Pitchfork. An affinity for beautiful alternative women. Art school girls with pink hair and tattoos. Hypebeast chicks that rock Palace and Hood By Air. College girls that shop at Rumors Boutique and upscale hipsters that shop at Need Supply Co. All of them riding their fixies through the city. I have two mixtapes, an EP and a few more videos ready to go in 2014. My plan is to keep writing songs and meet as many gorgeous alt bitcs as possible."

Harn SOLO performing the song "Louis Armstrong" in the Garden District and French Quarter of New Orleans. The Focus Cinema TV directed film is the third single from Harn SOLO's album, "Perfect Picture" released this fall. Paying tribute to his current city on "Louis Armstrong", it's obvious the Crescent Kingz produced song mirrors the unique spirit of a legendary music town. From the symbolism of the umbrella and second line style dancing, to the traditional New Orleans voodoo face paint and Mardi Gras beads. New York City trend setting culture magazine IX Daily says, "SOLO is an artist who is ready to grab music by the reins and steer it in his winning direction. He is setting his place with a sound that is uniquely his by giving hip-hop the classic New Orleans twist."

Twitter: @Voicey_Uno

Yes, sir. And yes, mayum. Click play if you want to hear good music, man.... This is what music sounds like. It's different, it expresses the musicians inner voice. It's not mainstream and it's more like musical art, sung from the heart. It's eclectic and retrospective. It moves you and makes you think, while being creative and unique.

New Orleans emcee Voice Monet presents the Go'Head Media-directed music video for "Carts b4 Horses (Rob)", her new single produced by Belgian DMC champion DJ Grazzhoppa. The video was conceptualized, shot and edited all in the space of two days as part of the 48Hour Music Video Project Challenge which was recently held in New Orleans. Voice's debut album Gumbo dropped in 2006. "NOLA Redux" featuring Malkovich made the top of Gilles Peterson's BBC World Wide Best Hip-Hop of 2009 list. She was teaching classfuls of New Orleans youth how to rap as an official Teaching Artist In Residence when Hope & Sorrow, the 2007 Decon/Atmospheriques release from celebrated French producer Wax Tailor, was certified silver. Between her solo releases and her collaborations with BBE, Ninja Tune, Canada's Public Transit Recordings, UK's Twisted Funk Records and Tailor, over a quarter of a million records worldwide bear Voice's name. She has played internationally at major festivals (Montreal Jazz Festival 2013) and world reknowned venues (L'Olympia, Paris). "Sometimes my muse comes in the form of a man, and he just wants me to... rap!" says Voice about the song. "In this particular song I have chosen to call him 'Rob', but that inspiration comes in many forms and is expressed through several mediums." Voice is gearing up to release her EP Black Maria in 2014 through her production company Go'Head Media.

Montreal rapper CeasRock presents the ilovenewyork.usMedia-directed video for "All My $", the new 514IndoRecordz-produced single from his Zero Gravity EP which features Uness, Loe Pesci, I.Blast and Boy 6lue as well as production from Vincent Pryce and DeeJay IZ. Born Sam Karimi, Ceas is a spokesman for Montreal urban site Mook-Life.com, as well as founder of his own movement, REAL LIFE. Videos have already been released for "Faceless", "10.5", "Mook Life Pt. 1"  and "M.O.E." "While I was writing for this EP, money was definitely on my mind," says Ceas. "From how I was to earn it, to how much of it I needed to spend, it was looming over my thoughts heavy. I wrote All My $ from this perspective. I was hungry and I didn't know how I was supposed to eat. The verses depict that hunger from a young desperate man's view, and an older, equally hungry, man's perspective. I didn't feel like performing the verses in the video because the verses weren't necessarily about me. So I focused on the feeling instead of a literal depiction of the lyrics. I recently graduated from university, but I have no intentions of using my degree to get a job. So, with that in mind, one day I was cleaning out my garage of about ten years worth of school papers, textbooks, old bills, etc… I thought to myself, I didn't want to just toss it out, I wanted more closure. So I had the idea of burning them in a ceremonial bonfire. I'm burning the old me..I'm burning All My $." Zero Gravity is available now on Ceasrock's Bandcamp page

His single “Buried By Six” was produced by Father MC and released on Famous Records in August of 2012. This year Jonezen has done two independently booked tours, performed at the Speak Your Mind Hip Hop Festival alongside Blackalicious, been featured on several radio stations including The Weekend Top 30 ‘What’s Poppin Next’ and has been nominated for two Los Angeles Music Awards for Best Hip Hop Artist and Best Social Media.

The name says it all...this is my dedication...to the fans..my city...my people!" Beautiful Disaster drops March 2014.
