MP3: June - "All Year" (prod. Teddy Walton)


From Nancy B:

MP3: June - "All Year" (prod. Teddy Walton)

Bobby Gene Walton Jr, also known as June, is a born and raised native from the great state of Memphis, Tennessee. On April 14, 1989 a new kind of soul was brought to this world to produce his own style of hip hop.  Coming from a long list of renowned musicians roaming the streets of Memphis, there were big shoes to fill and new limits to reach. With the help of his younger brother, Travis "Teddy" Walton, by his side producing new beats and mix mastered hits, the simplicity and rawness of soul music's roots are reborn.

June II Real is the definition of "One Hundred", always being himself one hundred percent of the time making it a way of life, and creating his own path. With his new free album June 2 Real being released early summer of 2012, you can find collaborations with Chicago's native, Rockie Fresh, hometown Memphis's very own, Skewby, and one of the strongest  new ambassadors to Detroit hip hop, Scolla. "I want to let them know I'm different, bringing a new genre of hip hop, Urban Epic," says June. His first new single, City Love was released on April 20, 2012.  Be on the lookout for June all year. #100.

New Audio: Moe Pope f/ Sun Kil Moon - "Grey Clouds"


From Matt B:

New Audio: Moe Pope f/ Sun Kil Moon - "Grey Clouds"

Moe Pope's career first took off in the early 2000s with the Bay Area-based hip-hop band Mission (who later became known as Crown City Rockers). After a series of 12"s, Pope appeared on the group's LP, One, in 2001, before deciding to return to Boston in order to look after his daughter. Back in his hometown, he connected with rapper/producer Insight and his five-man outfit, Electric (aka Electric Company).

Along with members Anonymous and Raheem Jamal, Pope broke off from Electric to form Project Move, issuing their debut album, Love Gone Wrong/Butterfly Theory, in 2006. As each group member went off to make solo records, Pope reunited with his former Crown City cohort Headnodic for the well received collaborative album Megaphone in 2008.

In 2010, Moe released his critically acclaimed Life After God LP, which was highlighted by iTunes on its 2010 “Rewind List.” Currently, Moe Pope is working on a few new projects, with a new production partner and a new label for his latest and most mature works to date.  Here is a sampling of some of that new work, from Moe’s upcoming The Shit You Shoulda Heard Vol. 1 (coming soon) as Moe collaborates with acclaimed Indy band Sun Kil Moon.

Video: Kevin Rudolf - "Ferraris & Helicopters" Part 1

"Hey man, I grew up in New York City," said Kevin Rudolf whose new web series is entitled "Ferraris & Helicopeters". "I could be on the subway standing next to the Mayor and I wouldn't know it. New York is about minding your own business, doing your own thing." Currently, Rudolf is in the process of completing a new album. "I moved back to New York, got back to basics, shut the door and started working by myself again," he said. "I had done the whole LA thing. New York just brings out a different side of me...more edgy and raw. I can't wait for people hear this album. They're going to be surprised."
