With over 4,500 Youtube views
UK producer Endemic presents the music video for "High Society", his new single featuring Queens rapper Tragedy Khadafi and Brooklyn emcees Afu Ra and Ruste Juxx. A native of the United Kingdom regarded as one of the country's foremost hiphop producers, Endemic recently moved to New York City via a USA O-1 artist visa for “persons of extraordinary ability”. "High Society" is the first single from his forthcoming album Terminal Illness 2, which will also feature Masta Killa, Roc Marciano, Cappadonna, Planet Asia, Skyzoo, DJ Switch, Bronze Nazareth, Kevlaar 7, Salute Da Kidd, P.R. Terrorist, Killah Priest, Hell Razah, Shabazz The Disciple, Bugsy Da God, Cyrus Malachi, Tesla's Ghost, Ray Vendetta, Sav Killz, Supreme, Darkim be Allah, Prodigal Sunn, William Cooper and M9.
TI2 is the followup to the 2009 Money Maker/EMI release Terminal Illness, which featured Sean Price as well as UK artists C Mone and Triple Darkness, and received radio play from DJ Premier. In 2010 Duck Down Records released Adamantine, Endemic's collaboration record with Ruste Juxx which featured General Steele of Smif N Wessun and Ill Bill. “This song was started when me & Tragedy Khadafi started to work," says Endemic about the new single. "He actually wanted to do the whole song and use it for his next album but I loved the beat and wanted it for TI2. It has that kind of vibe, we then confirmed Ruste & Afu to get on there and you have a potential NYC classic joint!" Regarding Endemic, Tragedy says “Endemic is more than a beat maker or producer; he actually understands how to marry an MC to his sound, that’s more than hip hop – that profound!” Terminal Illness 2 drops November 26 on No Cure Records.
"Sacramento" Rapper "Tynethys"
"Strawberry Letter 316" (Official Video)
Sacramento producer Tynethys and Indie rap artists Main Attrakionz release a new video for "Strawberry Letter 316" a track off their latest self titled mixtape Main Attrakionz x Tynethys. "We got lit in two different cities (Sacramento,CA and San Leandro, CA) with 2 different cameras on the same day to bring you this vid," Tynethys explained. The video features Tynethys rapping in the middle of a neighborhood development with Main Attrakionz appearing later in the video scened at a basketball court.
Main Attrakionz x Tynethys, released Oct. 22 , had its first single "On1." premiered by Pitchfork, and its final single "USB," premiered on Brooklyn Vegan. The mixtape was also featured on The Fader's weekly "Mixtape Saturday" article, described as "an airy, narcotic project that floats along and passes in a blur."
To hear him tell it, Sacramento's Tynethys' (pronounced "Teen-this") musical style is like "selling crack in a Sub-Zero outfit." For the MC/producer, Mortal Kombat is just one of his inspirations, along with local rap heroes Mac Dre, C-Bo and T-Nutty. Producing and writing his songs in the hours between midnight and sunrise, Tynethys is a jovial, pensive creator with a stoner's laugh and street vernacular. Tyne's style is a fuzzy free-form that speaks not only to his worldview from his bedroom, but many like him. With the forthcoming Thyluxe Edition follow-up to last year's Lost Angeles album, Tynethys believes he's hitting his best stride. "I feel like it is the truest representation of me. I did it without trying too hard." Besides his own work, Tynethys appeals to many collaborators. He has recently released a project with Oakland duo Main Attrakionz. "I really fucked with these dudes. They came to Sacramento, and I literally showed up at their hotel room with a lab," recalls T.P., who arrived with a portable studio. Having opened for Kendrick Lamar, Raekwon and Evidence, it's only a matter of time until Tynethys transports his sound around the globe. Recently, Tynethys released a collaborative album with Main Attrakionz titled Main Attrakionz x Tynethys.
"League of Extraordinary Gz" Ft. "Slim Gravy"
"Intercourse" (Official Video)
Before the release of their debut album, #LeagueShit, The League of Extraordinary Gz dropped the track "Intercourse," featuring Slim Gravy of A.Dd+. Now the Austin rap collective is releasing a video for the song, which Dowrong of the League described as, "Just letting females know that I ain't trying be in a relationship. I'm just trying to fuck." The video is directed by Jordan Haro, who also got his start in Austin, Texas. The League's Reggie Coby explains that they knew they wanted a video for "Intercourse" to be one of their first but it was Jordan Haro that initially reached out to them about joining forces in Texas.
Filmed in Austin, the video, premiered today by Prefix Mag, starts with a candy red slab full of girls pulling up to a drive thru window over the song's intro, "Is there a shorter word for Intercourse?" only to find Slim Gravy working at the window where he takes it away with his opening verse. "With this video we really didn't want to go with a cliche treatment that we could have easily done," says Reggie. "With our original treatment we had this key shot we continued to focus on which we felt was the center of the video. It was the part with Slim getting pulled through the drive thru window. It took us minute to even find a location with a drive thru that would allow us to shoot. But it worked out and Jordan made sure the execution of that scene happened."
When Austin, Texas, reality rap collective League of Extraordinary Gz recorded "We Gone Make It" in spring 2010, Octavis "Esbe Da 6th Street Bully" Berry stepped in the recording booth and yelled two words: "League Shit!". Three years later, it has become an emphatic anthem, brand and title. The Bully's vision formed in 2009 when his choice of eight members and three groups with their own budding local buzz - Dred Skott, Da COD and Southbound - sat in a driveway plotting a collaborative mixtape. In 2010 they debuted locally, played the South by Southwest Music Festival and Fun Fun Fun Fest and were featured on MTV Jams' Texas All-Star Edition. In 2011 they rocked over 60 shows, including a West Coast tour with Jackie Chain for their Concealed Weapons 3 mixtape, and a national tour with Dead Prez. Then, in October 2011, The Bully passed away suddenly due to a pulmonary embolism. As 2011 ended, the LOEGz were named one of Sonicbids' Top 5 Hip Hop acts. They released The Plug EP in December. All of this came from a collective effort by three groups in three years via the foresight of a now-absent leader. All anticipation, questions or doubt after a few spins of The Plug EP will be quenched with their debut album #LeagueShit. Clearly rooted in traditional hip hop, #LeagueShit includes stout musicality and wildly free speech featuring Dead Prez, Bavu Blakes, Grupo Fantasma, and Slim Gravy of A.Dd+.

Off "Baltimore Bruin"
Baltimore-bred, Los Angeles-based emcee E Major presents the self-directed music video to "TSRH", the Sham Dibiase-produced single from Baltimore Bruin, his new album featuring Marc Evan, King's Khrysis, Kaimbr and UllNevaNo as well as original production from Rexamillion, Khrysis, Roddy Rod, IllMeasured, Minus Nine and Eddie Pearson. E's album Better Than Yours had already made Baltimore City Paper’s top ten albums of 2011 – two years after dubbing his Majority Rules album “a classic” – by the time his hit “Paper Runnin’” started doing the rounds on 92Q, later remixed by local legend DJ Booman. Wielding common-sense lyricism and a relaxed, persistent flow which presides on equal footing over boom-bap and trap alike, E’s shared stages with Lupe Fiasco, Wale, and Little Brother and has gotten the nod from Okayplayer, MTV, VH1 and DJ Booth. Three videos from the project have already been released: "Outrageous", "Feature Presentation" and "Zodiac Freestyle". "Just vibing off the beat, this track turned into a nostalgic piece where I started to rhyme about all types of stuff from Hip Hop's 90's hey day," says E. "I brought on Rome Cee and Kane Mayfield for the track, although the version for the video only has Rome. Both Rome and Kane know how to paint vivid pictures and were able to bring that clear imagery of what 90's Hip Hop was really like. I used the Katt Williams sample because I always loved that bit and how he said that. It just struck me one day to make that a hook so I ran with it." Baltimore Bruin is available now on E's Bandcamp page.

PRYVT RYN and TYCOON are Los Angeles duo The Mansion Boys, presenting their new single "John Stamos". The Mansion Boys are coming off the success of their song “Go Out Tonight”, which has well over 500,000 YouTube views and appeared on “The Jersey Shore” twice as well as the MTV shows “Buckwild” and “World Of Jenks”. Their songs “Slurren” and “The Freakiest Things” also appeared on “The Jersey Shore”. Tycoon is one of the L.A.’s most in-demand producers, with a resume that includes working with Dr. Dre, Ron Fair, Diane Warren, and received a platinum plaque for his work on Sean Paul/Keyshia Cole’s “Give It Up To Me”. “We had a moment, walking around the Hollywood Hills, when we both converged on this concept of John Stamos,” says PRYVT. “He plays into people’s fantasies, women of all ages want to be with him, and men wish they had his vitality. He’s in the Beach Boys! So when Tycoon uttered the line ‘I stay with them twins like I’m John Stamos’, the light bulb went off and we knew we had to make a Mansion song.”

"Portland, Oregon" Rapper "Mikey Vegaz"
"Gods Be Gods" (Official Video)
With the early success of his freshman album FLI ROCK (which gained national exposer and recognition as unSigned hype in Source Magazine) MV was able to stay consistent, making quality street music that led to him dropping his first series of mixtapes "The Definition of FLI". This set of mixtapes showcased his skills as a MC destined to make a mark in hip hop. Along with childhood friend FLIBOIMOE, MV teamed up with Coast2coast mixtapes and released volumes 1 thru 4 "The Definition of Fli". With much anticipation the mixtapes included All Star appearances from top DJs such as DJ Whoo Kid and DJ Khaled to mainstream and underground artist such as Chris Brown, Flo rida, Ace hood, Messy Marv, E-40 , Juelz Santana, J Diggs, The Game and a host of others!
Continuing to build a buzz and pushing his brand, Mikey Vegaz found himself shifting gears as the rap game was beginning to get back to the grass roots of underground independent hip hop. MV then released his first independent single as a solo artist "ONE HIT WONDER" ft. E-40 & Aaron O'Bryan Smith which debuted on XXL.com and later spread like a wild fire throughout the blogs.
Not wasting time, shortly after gracing the cover of MURDERDOG magazine with fellow North West elite artist such as Cool Nutz (MVs long time mentor and manager), he followed up with a 9 song track list EP "Thoughts of a Premature Millionaire". This EP included the remix to "ONE HIT WONDER" were MV reached out to home town legend super producer BOSKO in hopes to smash the air waves with the help of Bay Area heavy hitters E-40 and Mistah Fab.
Noticing the great response from local and national fans following his projects MV took the phrase "Putting on for my city" to heart, announcing himself "Prince of the City" and he launched a new series of street albums on his own website - PYREXMEDIA.com. Both street albums, OREGOON vol. 1 & vol. 2, are much different from MV's prior material being that he stayed away from the industry star studded appearances and focused on working with the local North West heavy hitting artist such as well-known top dogs of the Rose City -- Cool Nutz, Maniac Lok, Grind time battle rap star Illmaculate, Luck-one, Meezilini and more! Both mixtapes helped certify Mikey's position in the local hip hop scene.
Fresh off the "Summer of Strange Tour" and straight to the studio with a release date of September 17th- MV's back with the help of his lifelong ace FLIBOIMOE to bring you his new street album: "GOLD KiLOS N THE TRAP" #GKNTT

"CT/Atlanta" Rapper "J.Nolan"
"Getting It In"
"J. Noloan", is one of the dopest dudes spit'n on the mic to date. With his flow and his crack'n beats, "J. Nolan's" music make you want to get on your feet. What I really like about "J. Nolan" is he's a story teller. You can visualize his lyrics when you hear it. It's obvious that God has bless him with talent, I just can't wait until the world gets to hear what he has to share, cuz it's gold in there.
"Getting It In," is a record primarily centered around the collective numbness we as people have towards ourselves and others at times. To drive the point home, I wanted to share a story about a young woman that resorts to selling her body as a means to survive and humanize such behavior without being judgmental to the situation. Production of the record was handled by the Bounce Brothas, a production duo from Germany, they did a wonderful job incorporating live instruments into the arrangement.

Chox-Mak is not your everyday artist he knows how to work the media and push his music all at the same time. Chox-Mak recently said in a interview that connecting with DJ YRS Jerzy is the best thing that happen for his music career. Now with these two dropping projects almost every week now it just shows how serious they are about their careers and where they see themselves being in the next couple of months. These two bring you another classic called "Jax Da Ripper" which is a track with a old school meets new school type of vibe to it. They rarely disappoint the people that follow their movement so "Jax Da Ripper" should be another dope track from Chox-Mak. This track was also produced by Pepsi Kalisz.
"No Weapons" (Official Video)
One of the fastest rising recording artists has to be none other than Jacksonville, North Carolina's own Chox-Mak. He has been making his rounds in the media for a while now and is now starting to get the attention he well deserves. With his mixtape "Cross Colours And Starter Jackets" in the works he has decided to give the people something else that isn't featured on the project to visualize. "No Weapons" is a track that promotes positivity and tries to bring down all the negative things that are happening out in the world. The meaning behind "No Weapons" is to use your mind as a weapon and no one can stop you from reaching your goals. Chox-Mak looks to inspire his generation rather than feed into the negativity. This visual is definitely something to watch it also shows the struggles of everyday life and how you need to keep pushing to become something great in life. The production behind this track is brought to you by Coaste Beats and was shot by Rock Royal Armani Films.

"Toronto" Rapper "Korry Deez"
"Gotta Get It 1.0" (Official Video)
Korry Deez is a gritty, yet soulful, emcee and a producer of groove heavy hip hop that can effortlessly make people catch a vibe. Hailing from Toronto, one of today's burgeoning music scenes, Deez quickly puts his name up there with some of his city's best. With Gotta Get It, Korry addresses several life issues, some of which forced him to take a decade long departure from the game. Upon his return, it is evident he has sharpened his dynamic musical abilities and is set to take the spotlight that once evaded him.
Toronto-based rap artist Korry Deez has been creating a musical utopia for years, illustrating the passion he has for creating gritty, yet soulful hip hop music from the heart. As 1/3 of Canadian supergroup IRS and cofounder of the megacity rap crew Monolith, Deez has made a significant impact on both international and national levels. Having been a regular in Kardinal Offishall's live show for over 5 years, he has graced the stage with the likes of Sean Paul, The Bootcamp Clik, Declaime, Planet Asia, K-os, Swollen Members, Jully Black, O.C., Classified, Shaggy & J-Live to name a few.
On his debut album with IRS, Welcome To Planet Irs (Universal Music), Deez stretched rap's boundaries by creating a masterpiece. This led to a Juno nomination for best rap recording in 2004 and their album, to this day, is considered to be a Canadian classic. Maybe his most memorable moment came on a timeless track by Kardinal, "Ol' Time Killin", where he completely destroys the song, boasting a hip hop quotable type verse while 'blessing it effortlessly'. The video for "Ol' Time Killin" was directed by the highly acclaimed Mr. X, airing on BET, MTV, MuchMusic & Musique Plus.
IRS went on to being 'Rated Next' on BET with their smooth, bumping groove "T.R.A.C.K.S.' Lament" which garnered them even more major label distribution with Sony/RED and Avatar in the US. Deez has collaborated with renowned producers: Jake One, Rich Kidd, Elaquent, Tone Mason, Lancecape, Mr. Attic, Lyve and Solitair while appearing on many a song and compilation over the last decade.
Coming off of a long hiatus, Korry has gone back to his more musical roots in funk, soul, electronic, blues and jazz music. Now harnessing stronger artistic capabilities, he has fused his influences into one rich, solid soundscape, producing a more musical blend of hip hop. Korry states that he has been "replenished with a hunger never felt before". He is now set to return with his first solo album 'Imago', where he unravels from a cocoon-like state to show a growth and maturity few in music today could replicate. When Korry Deez returns with 'Imago’, it will yet again put him in the conversation of who to be watching for in an ever-changing hip hop world.
