While most people shrugged off Kendrick Lamar's heard around the world "Control" verse as nothing but some boisterous claims of being the king of New York, others took the message a bit more personally. Such is the case with Innocent? and his response to the aforementioned rhymes supplied by the Good Kid M.A.A.D. City emcee. Where Innocent?, the boom-bap dedicated rhyme sayer's comeback excels in is the well executed video shot by Donald Robinson Cole, which showcase some breath taking scenes of the Big Apple.

After three years as the Stereo Boyz and countless mixtapes, EPs and songs, Mixo and Mic Audio a.k.a. Stereo Boyz present their official debut album Carz, Clubz & Theaterz. Work on the album started as early as the Stereo Boyz were formed. Coming from the Detroit Hip Hop crew Rhyme Asylum, Mixo, Mic Audio and Kid Boombox started developing a new sound, something more fitting for themselves and without the restrictions they had faced during the years before.
Solmanipulation is an EDM/Trap/Experimental collaborative project between Hip-Hop producer N8 the Gr8, R&B singer Maryann and Visual Artists Van Dope. Branching out from their roots the trio offers a more forward thinking electronic sound/visual than their previous ventures.
Making a return to the music scene for the first time since in almost 6 months, Dave Raps comes through with the first offering from his forthcoming project. In early 2012, Dave gave us AKA Dave Ruffin, which in my book solidified him as a consistent artist on both musical and visual fronts.
