Young Dro announces the release of his new album, P.O.L.O. (Players Only Live Once, set to hit stores in Winter 2011 on Grand Hustle/eOne/Atlantic Records. Dro's newest single, "Racked Up" was released this week on DJ Smallz' new mixtape, Southern Smoke Radio Vol. 5, the mixtape series inspired by DJ Smallz' two hour, weekly, southern hip hop mixshow, and is at urban radio now.

About his much anticipated, forthcoming album, Dro states, "It's been a long time coming, and I had to really get focused. We were releasing my album in 2008, but the album leaked and that took a lot out of me. I stayed busy with mixtapes, club shows across the U.S. and the Grind N Hustle tour. We decided to sit down with Atlantic Records and do a venture with eOne Music and here we are.... Racked up!"

Alan Grunblatt, President of eOne Music, adds, "We're thrilled to be working again with Grand Hustle. We've had great success with the partnership in the past, and we expect big things with Young Dro."

His debut album, "Best Thang Smokin'," was released on Grand Hustle/Atlantic and skyrocketed to #1 on the Billboard Rap and R&B Charts, and #3 on the Billboard Top 200. The album was propelled by the hit "Shoulder Lean" feat T.I., which received heavy radio and video airplay, and was nominated for three BET Hip Hop Awards, winning the BET Mobile Hot Ring Award.

"I Love Jews" was chosen by the chosen as the theme song for the Nu Ju Year 5772. Not simply because "Baruch Hashemillionaire" is dropped in Kosha and C-Rayz Walz’s rhymes, but mostly because it is surprisingly blended with the Delfonics infectious melody, "La La La Means I Love You." and since everyone loves free downloads and good grub, we thought that in addition to giving away free music you would also want something tasty for the holidays.

R.A. The Rugged Man is not just an underground rap legend, he's also a boxing historian who has written articles on the sweet science for publications like Vibe, The Source, King, Complex, Rides, and more.

Now, R.A.'s giving fans a chance to get a pair of autographed boxing gloves from "The Executioner" himself, Bernard Hopkins. In a contest on his website, R.A. is giving away the pair of gloves to the person that best predicts the outcome of Hopkins' upcoming fight with Chad Dawson.  The gloves are sure to be a great collectable, as Hopkins is one of the greatest middleweight champions of all time.  With an unprecedencted 20 title defenses to his name, Hopkins recently became the oldest man ever to win a world title by defeating Antonio Tarver at age 46.

"Space Cake" by Rolling Stoned featuring Marii Jane, Salazar, Shottie, & Joey Duz 

http://rollingstoned.bandcamp.com/album/space-cake

Space Cake is the debut album from Miami rap group Rolling Stoned, a crew of cannabis loving MC's blending a variety of southern and alternative rap creating a movement of positivity, weed-advocacy, and ill Hip-Hop. 

Rolling Stoned tell semi-fictional stories of local pot kingpins turned rappers who stack boatloads of cash & smoke the finest bud. Though these topics have become all too familiar in Hip Hop, Rolling Stoned separates themselves by creating group with a unique combination of artists. It's clear that these are simply not weed rappers, they're rappers who smoke a lot of weed.

Standout tracks:

Down south, 808, bounce featuring the entire crew.

"Hide your keys, cell phone, and wallet" a record about a clepto-maniac girlfriend over an ill ass beat.

Panty dropper for the ladies but if you listen closely it's really a record about drug addiction.

Go inside a man's conscious before he cheats. Listen to the angel and devil as they try to persuade him.
