Rap has consistently revolutionized through poetic prose that is both articulate and real. Gordo Brega, successfully melds these two characteristics, consequently espousing a brand of rap that fuses the best aspects of English and Spanish. This blend, contingent on the responses Brega has aroused within the D.C. Metropolitan, Miami, Los Angeles, New York areas portends a new era in hip hop in which Gordo Brega will subsequently monopolize. 

Brega was born in the Bronx, New York. As a Dominican American with a grasp of Spanish far surpassing his knowledge of English in his formative years, Brega initially had a barrier impeding his assimilation into rap culture. This changed when Gordo first came across the lyrical stylings of another Bronx native, Big Pun. In Pun, Brega had a positive example of a Latino rapper who fused the best cultural aspects of being Latino and American. Emboldened by this, Gordo came to the conclusion that he too had the potential to put his imprint on rap, which in turn would be facilitated by his cultural uniqueness. 

Brega honed his technique under the alias Alah Durden when he released his first mixtape “Street Code†in 2001, after he relocated to Washington D.C. In 2003, Brega started his label DTO Records (Determined To Takeover Records) along with Kwabena "99 Grams" Nkrumah as a means by which his musical vision could be propagandized within the larger community. 

In the proceeding years Brega produced a litany of well received mixtapes which include his most recent classic M.W.A., and A Lo Fuke 3. Through this perpetual proliferation of solid music, Gordo Brega has laid the foundation for a career on a trajectory to reshape the landscape of rap. This combined with raps inner yearning to propagate “fresh†music ensures Brega a future place along with raps elite.

"40Love" is excited to celebrate the release of their new album, "Dreams Don't Sleep". The album, which is available through iTunes and can also be streamed in full via SoundCloud, is being released in conjunction with famed Bay Area skateboard brand FTC, with the two also coming together for a collaborative t-shirt that will be released in the coming weeks. 

Now, following a successful European tour – and with a hometown album/shirt release party at FTC's flagship store in San Francisco scheduled for August 11th – "40Love" is releasing the video for "Tiki Tiki" featuring Zumbi of the legendary Bay duo Zion I.

The video, directed by John Coyne, is for the album's latest single, the mp3 of which the Bay Area group released last week. The video was shot in San Francisco's famed Chinatown district, a fitting choice for the visual, since, as "40Love" recently noted, the song (including the track's hook and the Far East-inspired production) riffs off the classic children's story Tiki Tiki Tembo. If the song sounds familiar, it might be because you heard a sample of it used on the title track of Bassnectar's Wildstyle EP.

The group was also exited to work with Zion I emcee Zumbi. "It's been dope working with him because we all grew up bumpin' Zion I as a Bay classic," says "40Love". "Now, we've been able to build with him on shows and recordings - he's an inspiring artist in his performance, music and message." The song is a clever play on the children's story, Tiki Tiki Tembo, with the hook comprised of the very long ancient Chinese name used in the book. Tag-team producers Mikos and The Whooligan turned out a heavy, Far East-inspired beat for "Tiki Tiki," while Miss Haze, G-OFF, and Zumbi verbally dance all over it.

Album "Diggaz With Attitude" Drops Aug 28th

"Stu Bangas" & "Vanderslice" announced their new collaborative album, "Diggaz With Attitude". The album, being released August 28th via Man Bites Dog Records, will include features from Ill Bill, Vinnie Paz, Esoteric, Celph Titled, Blaq Poet, and just the other week, Stu & Vander released the video for the album's lead single, "The Gusto" which features Apathy, The Alchemist, Evidence, and Roc Marciano.

Today, "Stu Bangas" & "Vanderslice", in conjunction with 2dopeboyz, are excited to give fans a pre-album mixtape, "Brutal Blends". The mixtape, which includes a number of previously released tracks, in addition to a handful of blends courtesy of Dusty Gems, also features a collection of exclusive tracks, with features coming from Planet Asia, Wais P, Ill Bill, Vast Aire, Action Bronson, and more. 

The tape was put together by "Stu Bangas", who wanted to use the tape as a tool to point new fans back to some of the producers' previous work. "We wanted to release some songs we had produced that were under the radar," explains Stu Bangas, while Vander notes that it was actually the work of Dusty Gems that sparked the initial idea for the tape. "I saw that Dusty Gems was doing blends with beats that Stu and I had already released," he recalls. "From there, Dusty and Stu built the idea, and when they brought it to me, I thought it was interesting – something different."

 "No Sympathy" (TRAILER) 

"No Sympathy" will be a departure from the blended, mixed-genre sound that has become popular within hip-hop and nostalgic for those who crave the "middle" hip-hop era, the bass lines, the grit, and the street. Good musik is Priceless, Great musik is Timeless. Watch the trailer as it simply pays homage to times of hip-hop past. It's all in the details.
