Los Angeles rapper/producer/video director Hopsin is giving his fans a sneak peak of what's to come from his sophomore album, Knock Madness, with "Rip Your Heart Out," featuring fellow indie rap game stalwart Tech N9ne. The song applies a ferocious war call of firing beats and growls over an accelerated and occasionally hypnotic pulse that feeds the rapid electricity of their cunningly cautionary lyrics. Hopsin is a "murderous word supplier" as Tech N9ne extends the warning, "Me and Hop only thing taken over like Pinky and the Brain."
At long last, here is the official download for Da Mafia 6ix's mixtape 6ix Commandments! With features from Yelawolf, 8Ball & MJG, SpaceGhostPurrp, Lil Wyte, The Outlawz, Bizzy Bone & Krayzie Bone, La Chat, Skinny Pimp and many more, this project is everything DJ Paul set out to create! Enjoy!

It's been six years since Marco Polo took the hip-hop world by storm with his Rawkus/Soulspazm Records debut LP, Port Authority. While the project not only established the Toronto, Canada native as one of the top emerging producers in his field, as evidenced by the amount of time that has elapsed between his debut and sophomore projects, it is also apparent that Marco Polo won't release a project on anyone else's timeline.
That fact is verified by Masta Ace, who in an attempt to find out what was going on with the verse he supplied for Marco's new project, PA2: The Director’s Cut, (which is now available wherever fine music is sold) left this voicemail for Marco.
"Ay yo Marco, it's Masta Ace, what's going on man? I was just wondering; I did this verse for you, I don't know, it was two years ago---whatever happened with that verse man? I thought it was coming out on Port Authority 2? It's like mad years now, like we talking about it, and I'm hearing about it. I've never seen someone take like four-thousand years to put a record together. Anyway, if you are working on it, I hope it"s done soon."
Newark, NJ - Fresh off a bunch of European tour dates and with his DJ Prostyle-hosted project, "Good Karma" set to drop on November 19th, Brick City representer Chad B kicks off the home stretch of the campaign with the visuals to "So Right", assisted by Harlem's favorite up-and-comer, Cristion D'or.
Wordsmith veteran, Athletic Mic Leaguer, and The Black Opera member- Jamall Bufford has explored all dimensions of hip-hop since his 2007 debut Pure and is preparing for his new album Victim Of A Modern Age to drop 12/10. Coming back with his grown folks moniker, Jamall Bufford has something to say about what he's witnessed over the past three years.

Hailing from Chicago, Lyriq discovered his passion for music at the tender age of five. He would rap and sing in front of local barbershop and grocery stores to raise money for studio time, "I would raise about $50.00 a day" states Lyriq. By the time he was nine; he'd successfully produced his first track and was discovered by Willie Taylor of Making The Bands Day 26.
