"Philadelphia" Rapper "Hommicide" Ft. "Miz MAF"
"GUAP" (Official Video)
Twitter: @all_black_hommi @StreetSpittas
From January 2008 til the present Hommicide has dropped mixtape
after mixtape an has shown and proven his voice, flow, and artistic
capabilities in a lane which he created himself, which landed him the title "The Hardest Artist".
No other Rapper/MC that claims to be the "Hardest"
can give it to you like Hommicide can. And that's in a broad spectrum
ranging from concepts, voice tone, delivery, style, substance, and flow. You get something new with every song he gives you.
For example, "The Kidd", he gives you a gritty and lyrical assault in comparison to "Swing MyWay", where he lightly bounces over the track catering to his female audience. These songs and more is why he earned the award of Philly's BestNew Artist in 2009. After releasing his first big single "Bout Dat" ft Bad Boy artist E.Ness in 2011-12 Hommicide is ready to reach even more milestones in his career. Be on the lookout for new music coming soon.

Twitter: @Dussume @dunndealpr
New Orleans rapper Moe presents the Erik Bartney-directed music video for "No Holds Barred", the Automatik Beats-produced single from the third volume of his mixtape series Is Anybody Listening, which features beats from Humbeats and Trackanometry. Born at Charity Hospital - the same hospital as Lil Wayne - both his parents were incarcerated by the time he was 6, leaving him in the care of his grandmother. Moe was writing rhymes by the time she moved him to Los Angeles a few years later, "often times rapping about my parents," he says. "No resentment lyrics though, just my thoughts on the situation." A few school expulsions later he was back in New Orleans, playing basketball and recording the songs that would lead to 2012, the year he dropped a staggering four mixtapes. "My inspiration for the song was everything that transpired in my life during that period," says Moe. "From getting put out and having my family turn their back on me, to leaving New Orleans for New York to pursue music and just all the emotions I was feeling at that point."

"Allentown, PA" Producer "Red McFly"
"Can't Sleep" (Official Video)
How does a virtually unknown artist/producer gain international exposure almost over night with no major label backing? They religiously grind until they catch the eyes and ears of someone who can financially appreciate the work they've put in. That's basically the strategy of Allentown, PA. based producer Red McFly and his latest offering is a visual from his recently released mixtape "Take Flight" entitled "Can't Sleep". From the reception of his Evil Empire generated project, it looks like McFly's way is working.
The Coke Boys producer has put together hits from behind the boards on hood goodies such as French Montana's Mac N Cheese series, numerous Chinx Drugz & co. material, and Red produced tracks for both The Game and Shyne during their recent back and forth battle on record. The award winning, up and coming double threat is predicted to be one of the most sought after young producers of 2014.
"Houston, Texas" Rapper "Durty Kash"
"My Money Dont Fold No More" (Official VIdeo)
The neighborhood of Homestead Street is infamous round these parts; a hot-bed of every type of crime, populated mostly by jack boys and corner boys, all looking for a way out. Twenty year old rapper, Durty Kash, had those same aspirations growing up there, coupled with a taste for the finer things, but thanks to a strong family those dreams lead him down a different path than those he was surrounded by. Showing his talent for music early, Kash was lucky enough to refine his chops alongside the budding talents of now nationally known locals like Riff Raff and Kirko Bangz, even opening up on tour for Nelly and Yo Gotti. Discovered by Houston indie label, Money to Blow Music Group, which is headed up by CEO Young Lace, the two discovered a kinship built around the desire to feed he masses radio-friendly rap music and live lavish off the proceeds. Here is a visual sample off of Kash's debut album, "Let's Live Lavish", expected later this year on which Kash describes his early years over a T.A. produced beat. The video was directed by Michael Artis.

I don't really wear plastic shits for the most part and rarely wear the wooden ones. Gemstones have special properties to them which is a cool thing to look into. I also felt like, gold is great and so are diamonds but people ain't hip to the other things they can get into, and it's also more accessible to people who ain't millionaire'd out able to buy diamond necklaces. I'm into all that."
