Scheme Street Battle: Poopie Doo vs Young El

Twitter: @SchemeStreet

Picture
Poopie Doo vs Young El was a great battle put on by Scheme Street as both MCs came ready with quality bars and great performance.  While Young El had some really good lines, Poopie Doo's 3rd round which took the blueprint from Eminem's self-diss battle verse in "8-Mile" made it hard for Young El to really come back with anything to counter that.  In the end it comes down to who's bars you like
best.

Boost Mobile Presents - "Be Heard Sessions"
 With "Pusha T"
+ Exclusive Freestyle

Picture
In this episode, G.O.O.D. Music Recording Artist Pusha T tells the story about how he got into music because of his older brother/partner Malice. Who was always into Hip-Hop. He tells how his brother was rapping with Timbaland in middle school and how they ran into Pharrell Williams. With him being in the environment of these people writing and recording songs. He decided to join in and he wrote his first rap song titled "Thief Of The Night". He says this became
the start of the hip hop duo "Clipse".

Pusha also says the biggest part of being an artist for him, is seeing the crowd and the fans react to what he puts out in the market place.

Quote: "When I hear the term "Be Heard", its just about having a voice. It's about letting your thoughts and your opinions and your feelings be on display. You really open yourself up to scrutiny and everything else, but you know. You get to give the people what you want them to hear." - Pusha T

Watch him end the session with an "off the dome" freestyle.

Queens native rapper and former back-up dancer Nyemiah Supreme can take care of herself, thankyouverymuch. Her newest video for “Nothin” which VIBE premiered yesterday, celebrates independent women.

Featuring a fit all-female cast, the video shows Nyemiah and her girls flexing at the gym and at one of her favorites spots, the famous sneaker shop GB’s in Jamaica, Queens. 

“The concept of the video is just me and my girls working out in the gym, showing the guys that we stronger than them and that we can do anything better than them because we don’t need them for anything” says Nyemiah. “It’s lighthearted and fun, not to be taken seriously.”

With two successful mixtape releases under her belt, BAD and
Pre-Gaming, Nyemiah is getting ready to release another project in the spring. More details to come soon.

As people, we navigate through life the best way that we can but there's  a lot of times when we get caught up in conventions, biases and subjective heresy. "Surface," the March #TeamBaiyu release, brings color to the chaos that we're often forced to face with little guidance towards truth. It challenges traditional means of thought and behavior, and asks that you break through the veil to take a breath.

People I've Met. This project stands to commemorate all the great people whom I have met and have helped me along the way with my music in some way. I am supported by an all star
cast including the artists Chris Hurley, IOU, Shannon Livewell, YYou, Simrin Jhagiani, Ryan Notes and more.

The project has a multitude of different sounds so I am more than confident there is a little something for everybody on the full EP!

Everyone is told who they should be and often not encouraged to be who they authentically are, be that One
In A Million".



"Eddie B" Feat. "Action Bronson"
"Marvelous"

Twitter: @EDDIEBHIPHOP @HarryFraud
@MANBITESDOGRECS

Picture
Next week, on Wednesday, March 13th, Eddie B & Harry Fraud, alongside Roc Marciano, Copywrite, and more, will headline the Man Bites Dog Records Official SXSW showcase – and they'll be using the opportunity
to unveil their new EP, Horsepower, both live on stage and as an exclusive early release via cassette tape. Today, following last week's release of lead single "Courage," Eddie and Harry are
releasing the EP's second single, "Marvelous," which was premiered by MTV Hive and features fellow NY rapper Action Bronson.

While "Courage" carried a more slowed, deliberate pace, driven by Fraud's creeping chops and Eddie's spaced out bars, "Marvelous" carries a quicker tempo, which does well, in contrast to "Courage" in showing off Eddie B's diversity and ability to flip flows . The hook, built around a sampled lyric from Raekwon's classic "Rainy Dayz" verse, sets the tone for the track, as Eddie and Action trade impressive bars. "I just listen to the beat," says Eddie, "and it instructs me what to do."

"Tez McClain"
"By Any Means"

Twitter: @tezmcclain

Picture
Last week, Atlanta rapper Tez McClain released his new EP, Scoundrel. The project, Tez' first release since
touring recently with the likes of Killer Mike, Mistah FAB, and Eligh, includes features from E-40, Reese, Erk Tha
Jerk, HBK Skipper
, along with production from Zaytoven and Natural Disaster. It's also a project that finds Tez at his most aggressive, lacing the 10-track project with assertive, unrelenting bars, and a perfect example of that is new single "By Any Means," which features Hollywood Da Prynce, and for which Tez is
releasing a video today.

Driven by a winding synth line and sinister 808's, all courtesy of producer Natural Disaster, the track, as Tez puts it, explains "the mentality of the average dude from urban America that feels worthless without money and tangibles." The video, directed by Be El Be, brings that sentiment to life, all dark imagery that tells the story of a young man who commits armed robbery in an attempt to maintain a certain lifestyle, and the repercussions that come with it.

Off "The Smoker's Section" Mix Tape

Picture
New London, Connecticut, isn’t often known as a hip-hop breeding
ground, but as the hometown to upstart rapper Hayze, that may
soon change.  After being introduced to Man Bites Dog Records
by Demigodz veteran Apathy, Hayze is
getting ready to release The Smoker’s Section, a new mixtape dropping on March 7th.  Last week, Hayze and Apathy released the single for their first ever collaboration, "Life Is Hell," with the two rappers going bar-for-bar, and now this week, they're releasing a video for the track.

The video, directed by Camacho of Flawless Visuals, was shot in New London, a grimy, freezing spot where barren streets and a chilling climate lend to the viciousness and energy of the track.  “Everything ties into the song,” says Hayze, “because the song’s about how life is hard all the time but you gotta keep it pushing.”  With a treatment from Apathy, the video shows the two rappers, despite the generational difference, coming together to represent their shared Connecticut roots. "It's special just knowing that I have a video with Apathy,” said Hayze. "That’s huge for a kid from a small town."

Off "HARK" Dropping 3/12/13

Picture
Earlier this month, fast-rising NY duo The Doppelgangaz announced their new album, HARK, accompanied by a video for the album's debut single, "Hark Back."

 The album, which will be released March 12th via the duo's label, Groggy Pack Entertainment, is a dark, gritty affair, one that nods toward the past, with comparisons to Gravediggaz
and Boot Camp Clik, while looking towards the future and places The
Doppelgangaz, comprised of rapper/producers EP and
Matter Ov Fact
, firmly among the emergent New York hip-hop scene.
Today, The Doppelgangaz are releasing their new video, "Oh Well."

With their previous video for "Hark Back," The Doppelgangaz delivered a black-and-white clip featuring The Dopps as black-cloaked, free-riding car-jackers, and with this new video for "Oh Well," again self-directed by EP and Matter Ov Fact and premiered today by VIBE, the duo continues to 
deliver visuals that match their rugged aesthetic. The song opens with a
crackled soul sample, and the video, shot in upstate New York, at a cattle farm, does well to show off the duo's sense of humor. "The treatment came to us while dining at Peter Luger Steakhouse," says The Doppelgangaz, jokingly. "We were drinking milk, listening to the song, and it hit us!"

Few artists are willing to promote themselves in an unpopular fashion. With the immense amount of love shown to artist who promote violence and sexual promiscuity, the role of "Christian rapper" is very unappealing. But 21 year old M.P.H. is not afraid.
 
Inspired at the age of 8, the rapper from Atlanta began writing and producing his own music. This naïve experimentation proved to be the
starting point of a ministry which would continue throughout M.P.H.’s college and adult life. MPH is the bridge between hip-hop and the church.
