In this latest look inside AU: Another Universe, MidaZ The BEAST breaks down the science behind his recently released song, "Champion of The Block". The single, which features Illustrate and is produced by IMAKEMADBEATS, will get the full music video treatment next week when the album is released.
¡OYE!, P/1 and DJ *hitmayng are Midwest trio RAGELIFE, presenting the Mark Gage-directed music video for "Champagne Range", the single from their forthcoming self-titled full-length. "Champagne Range" features production and a vocal appearance from Klassik, the rapper/producer/musician named Radio Milwaukee's 2012 Artist Of The Year.
"I'm all about being a competitor," says Vers'tyle of his decision to rap over the "Control" beat. "I did it for the sport. For the music. I think a lot of people are just rich and comfortable. That hunger is hard to maintain when you've got your feet up and you're chillin. I see it like those old WWF hardcore champ matches. You gotta defend your belt 24/7 when it comes to other people in your weight class. When you move up in the ranks, and your headed to the hall of fame, then you can take a breath. It's just more fun to me."

That Kendrick record brought people out of the wood works, including Armageddon. While everyone seems to be dissing Kendrick, Armageddon actually goes after those who attacked Kendrick and simply just calls them out for what it is. This didnt start as a press run because we had no images or copy to accompany it. Yet, the fan response has been so intense, that we decided to leak it further.

Dister was bitten by the hip-hop bug in the late Eighties, when he saw his ﬁrst painted S-Bahn train roll past in previously inaccessible West Berlin. This inspired him to pick up his own spray cans and he spent the Nineties lacing trains with bold, full-colour pieces – and the tag Dister was born.
Audio: Element Rhymes - Battle Royale (Kendrick Lamar Response)
There has been a lot of controversy over the recent Kendrick Lamar situation. Enough to Stir up Element Rhymes into making possibly the ultimate response. Abstrakt Soundz flipped the same beat that Kendrick used and created another beat while Element dropped some serious lyrics. Even taking jabs at Cassidy, Lupe and more.
