PITTSBURGH, PA - J. SANDS ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE DATE FOR K.R.SANDS THE MIXTAPE 8/8/2011
K.R.SANDS THE MIXTAPE RELEASE FROM J. SANDS MIXED BY DJ BONICS
"BUCKS FOR BONICS HEALTH AWARENESS CAMPAIGN"
The Pittsburgh hip-hop community received a jolt December 2, 2010 when Brandon “DJ Bonics” Glova suffered a heart attack. He was only 30.
Fortunately, Glova was able to recover and continue working as Wiz Kalifha’s tour DJ.
But Glova’s health situation -- and that he didn’t have medical insurance at the time of the incident-- underscores the health shortcomings of the hip-hop community, many of whom put their bodies through tremendous wear and tear and do so without healthcare and without regular check-ups at the doctor.
In order to bring awareness to the healthcare crisis in the hip-hop community, BUKA Entertainment along with J. Sands are proud to present K.R.Sands The Mixtape, the second mixtape from J. Sands mixed by DJ Bonics.
The mixtape will be used to support DJ Bonics and his foundation with our ‘Bucks for Bonics’ campaign. All of the money donated will go to help DJ Bonics' cause to bring awareness to heart disease.
During the 60 day 'Bucks for Bonics' campaign, we will be supplying information on the importance of having health insurance, testaments from people who have had their own health situations and other tidbits related to this movement.
This is more than just music. It’s about our health.
It’s time for the hip-hop community to start taking care of itself.
"If people didn’t smoke, drink alcohol and worked out 3 times a week. I wouldn’t have a job." - Dr. Tony Abdullah

Random a/k/a Mega Ran: UK Update and New LDN Dates
Cheerio old chaps! Random here, reporting live from the UK, now that I got some decent wi-fi. for those that don't know, myself, DN3, Lost Perception and K-Murdock embarked on our first ever UK tour this week, stopping in Manchester and London for some unforgettable shows. Most of my pics are on my phone, so those won't be able to be uploaded till I get back to the states (Airplane Mode Swag)
Manchester was awesome. that place has so much character.. London is a lot more crowded and rude, but the shows were amazing. the energy was at an all time high. I performed not one, two, but three sets over the 2 days of London Anime Con.
Now, we have another week here for sightseeing. So if any of you can suggest a place we should see out here, let me know!
NEW DATES ADDED!
so far, this is what our schedule looks like for those who might be in the LDN area this week: all events start at 8pm.. my time is unknown.
Wednesday Aug 3 - "A Spoonful of Poison" @ The Drop (under the Three Crowns), 175 Stoke Newington High Street, N16 0LH
Thursday, Aug 4- "Live Expressions" @ PORTOBELLO Lounge 269 Portobello Road W11 1LR (Nearest tube and bus route Notting Hill gate, Ladbroke grove underground stations. Bus 23, 7, 228, 52)
THE BEATOFF! Pause...need your help!
So, since Lost, DN3 and K all brought their Maschines on the trip, I came up with a great challenge to keep my producers' skills sharp in the UK. I gave K-Murdock, DN3 and Lost a Beach Boys song, called "Let's Go Away for Awhile."
Please listen, repost, tweet, donate, and/or spread by word of mouth.
All proceeds from this song download will go to International Justice Mission to help in the efforts against human sex trafficking (freeing & restoring sex slaves). Visit http://www.ijm.org for more info.

"In the light of news of Souljah Boy buying a 55 Million Dollar Jet in these times for many people especially of color..This is a polite respect call to the troops , to continue to inspire but reflect the people better. OTIS Redding was a humble country man from Macon Georgia who bought a jet to work in, not flash. He perished in that plane. Here's to hoping that the J & K supergroup can elevate the masses and try a little bit more to reflect OTIS heart rather than swag, because they're too good to be less."
