The ability to evolve and adapt in the ever changing realm of music is necessary for an artist’s survival. Having maintained a presence over the last 14 years via a resume that includes features on three MF DOOM albums (Take Me to Your Leader, MMFOOD, and Born like This), Atlanta-based lyricist staHHr has consistently done just that.

April 2012 sparks the beginning of Molotov Season, the first installment of the Mother Nature with a Molotov musical experience. Formerly known as [staHHr] tha F.EM.C.E.E., she welcomes hip hop enthusiasts into the “Golden Era Future”, with her second full length album “Mother Nature with a Molotov: Molotov Season”. The second single from the upcoming release, “FirestaHHrter”, produced by Lex Boogie, conjures the best of the gritty, hardcore production of the “Golden Era” and balances it with fiery, futuristic lyrics.

The first single from the project “Unbreakable”, produced by DJ Dug Boogie, was a rallying cry for all those that have faced and overcome challenges and adversity. staHHr’s first full length project “Almost Neva Was”, was released on digital imprint Beatvizion Music in 2008. November 2011, she released a retrospective compilation/mixtape that featured some of her standout features and songs from 2000-11. staHHr was most recently featured in the March 2012 issue of The Source magazine, sharing her views on women in hip hop in the “The Plight of the Female MC” article. “FirestaHHrter” will be available March 13, 2012, along with her other releases, on http://stahhr.bandcamp.com .

MGK's song "Invincible" struck victory when it was selected by both Verizon Wireless for the HTC Rezound 3G smartphone campaign and by the WWE as a theme song for next month's Wrestlemania XXVIII extravaganza.  As part of MGK's partnership with the WWE, he appeared on last night's, March 12th episode of WWE Monday Raw taped in his hometown Cleveland, OH and aired on the USA Network.

MGK is busy with success, starting the year winning MTV's 2011 "Hottest Breakthough MC" award. Then, he hit the road to perform at college campuses for the Vice Magazine/Project X Party Legends College Tour. This week, MGK will be in Austin, TX performing on the mtvU Woodie Awards that air live this Thursday, March 15th at 8pm ET on MTV and mtvU channels.
