Baltimore, Rapper "810" (1/2 of United Division, along with The Black Sunn) drops a video for “Something To Prove”, which is the first single from "810’s" upcoming third, widely influential solo album “The Real World” (no release date has been set yet).
The song itself was inspired by 2Pac’s classic joint “Nothing To Lose”, which uses the same Mica Paris sample. 810 talks about his struggles coming up as a young artist, the non-believers that he has to deal with on the daily basis, and explains why he’s far from giving up. It’s an up-tempo, positive, energetic hip-hop track, and we’re sure many people can relate to the message.

Off "DejaVu: The Cover Experience"
"The experience of deja vu is normally attributed to a sense of familiarity accompanied with a feeling of the uncanny, perfectly describing the listening experience of the long anticipated first project from the DMV's own Cloud 9.
By both pushing the envelope musically while nostalgically reincarnating some of our favorite tunes, Cloud 9 manages to reach new heights and redefine the concept of the "cover song".
Whether by breathing new life into some of our favorite classics or completely altering the genre of some of today's most popular songs,
Cloud 9 combines youthful exuberance and a musical maturity well beyond their years to create a window to the past while giving us a glimpse into the future.
Download it, burn it, give it to a friend and join the ever growing crowd that can't wait to see what they do next, again. Experience Deja Vu."
Listen in as the Gospel/Go Go background of drummer Jonathan “Footz” Livas, the classically trained piano of Jason “Sensei” Zamora, the space rock licks of guitarist Adam Dunbar, and Jazz band bass of Denzel Hassell, are blended seamlessly to create a musical palette rich and diverse enough for multi-talented recording artist Micheal “Tk” Akinlosotu to paint a masterpiece of sound, blurring traditional genre lines with his warm soulful harmonies and hard hitting raps. Urban Rock, Alternative Hip Hop, there is only one way to classify Cloud 9’s music, Epic. Described as out of this world, find out for yourself and join the Cloud 9 Universe.

Leads The Coors Light "Coldest MC Cypher"
Ice Cube has conquered music, movies, and television, and is worth a reported $100 million. The West Coast jack of all trades is currently working on the highly anticipated N.W.A. movie, as well as the new installment of Friday. In between all this filmmaking, Ice Cube has found the time to take part in the Coors Light "Coldest MC Search."
"It's dope that Coors Light is reaching out to the Urban community," said Ice Cube. They did this [search] last year with N.E.R.D., and I was like, we have the relationship, I have the [commercial] with the can to see whose the coldest, so it's only right I jump into the search for the coldest contest this year."
Ice Cube played host to the six finalists in New York City recently and was on deck to select a winner. Before the winner was announced, Ice Cube led a rap cypher. The contestants, who hailed from New York, New Orleans, Charlotte, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Baltimore each took turns spitting their hottest 16 bars.
Some of the MCs got really lyrical with it and put on a good show for the crowd. Check out the video below to see Ice Cube host the Coors Light "Coldest MC" rap cypher:
Ice Cube ended up crowning Charlotte's Felony Fame the Coors Light "Coldest MC."

Changing the Image of Black Women on Reality TV?
I KNOW, I KNOW I KNOW, that I am the only black woman on EARTH that doesn't watch "Love & Hip Hop", "Celebrity Ex's" "Basketball Wives", and what ever other black "REALITY" shows, that are over saturating the air waives, but the reason being is that they're just too ghetto and I hate to see "BLACK WOMEN" depicted this way.
This aint "Tells From The Hood". These are rich women who if not educated were smart enough to dig their hooks in someone's bank account, like a crook. But they get on tv ACTING so ghetto, and its embarrassing.
For some, it might be entertaining, but you have to remember non black people are watching too, and that's our representation. Plus we've got young impressionable ladies watching, thinking this is how you have to act and be, if you want to be famous on tv. <<Its just not for me.
So, I'm really feel'n that Faith Evans, Syleena Johnson, Monifah, Nicci Gilbert and Keke Wyatt have come together for the new TV One reality show "R&B Divas".
The show will chronicle the women as they balance their families and careers as well as supporting each other as they work through some of their own personal issues and creator Nicci Gilbert hopes it will show a more positive side of black women on reality TV.

I'm really glad they're doing this. And I'm sure this will help "Reebok" to get some time back on the clock.
Even though I knew it was his own fault, I think "Allen Iverson" got a bad rap, and I'm glad "Reebok" is at least giving him a chance to regain some fame on his name.
Who didn't love "Allen Iverson", and everyone rocked his joints. What I'm not feel'n, on these is the zipper that covers the laces, with a velcro strap, what are we 5? But, I do like that they added his picture and tattoo motto "Only The Strong Survive".

"David & Goliath"
"Good Will Stunting"
"Tonight We Fight"
If you are a music lover who likes an artist with versatility, then "D-Why" is your dude.
Cuz, when I first got on him he was rap'n and I swore he was black, like a cross between "Drake" & "Big Sean", with tracks like "Why", "Ballad Of An @sshole", "So Committed" & "Good Will Stunting"; then he drops tracks like "The Reprise", "Limitless" & "David & Goliath" which sound like a mix between "Green Day" and some other alternative rap-rock group, but its cool. Not sure if I would bump in my trunk, but I would download em on my iPod.
Ya'll know how I love to drop new dudes on the scene who come crispy and clean. What I like about "D-Why" is that he's true to the music within himself. He could of just hit the rap scene, or just hit the alternative rap-rock scene, but instead he did his own thing.

"DMV" Rapper "Substantial"
"Home Is Where The Art Is"
When music is powerful and honest, it spreads. Substantial has been making music informed by his DMV upbringing for more than a decade now. His musings-in-rhyme have taken him far beyond the reaches of PG County. Substantial has seen the world over, collaborated with artists from other nations and rocked stages across several continents. Home Is Where The Art Is, his third official solo LP, will further solidify Sub as the indie powerhouse he is.
Recently Substizzle's pen game took him to China. Forming part of the supergroup FANOMM, Sub was brought out to China by Bentley to perform at the launch of the luxury auto company's 2013 line. While in the Far East, Substantial took the time to share a verse from the album, acapella and on-camera. Delivering the third verse from "See Hear" impeccably, Substantial puts into rhyme the grind and drive that took him from an unknown aspiring rapper to one of the most respected lyricists in the underground today.
Though Home Is Where The Art Is isn't about Bentley's, blunts and bitches, as Sub jokes in the video, the alchemy of immaculate rhymes and hard beats is just as luxurious, intoxicating and pleasing. The LP drops September 24 on Mello Music Group.

"Who's The Man"
Off "From Love & Danger"
"Nearly two months ago, hip-hop's favorite quirky uncle, Kool Keith, hinted that he would be stepping away from the rap arena, that he was hanging up the MC gloves, or as he so poignantly put it, going home to the bat cave to take his cape off. This announcement accompanied the release of Love & Danger, the 13th album of Keith's illustrious career, which, just announced by Keith's label Junkadelic Music, will receive a vinyl release this fall.
Nevertheless, Kool Keith has remained active since the release of Love & Danger, performing to adoring crowds in New York City, Dallas, and Austin, while taking his show overseas for separate tours through Europe and Australia, and most recently returning back stateside for a performance at the Gathering of the Juggalos festival in Indiana. Keith also recently released his Total Orgasm mixtape, a collection of unreleased exclusives and recent loosies, and today, Keith is back to release his video for the latest single from Love & Danger, "Who's The Man." The video, directed by Pirate Dub & Kalenge FX, shows a time-lapsed street art piece by Hek & Junky of the TJS Crew, as the two work to recreate the wonderfully quirky cover art for Love & Danger, which features Kool Keith donned out in a shark-fin cape.
In remaining active, Keith also recently hit the studio to work on a new song, and popular sports and culture website Grantland.com tagged along, with writer Amos Barshad documenting the process and sitting down for an in-person interview with Kool Keith along the way. Keith talks about his proposed retirement in the feature, along with so much more, and Grantland also premiered the song that Keith recorded during that session, the DJ Junkaz Lou-produced "Spectrum."
