Suburban Noize Recording acts (Hed)p.e. and Potluck will join forces with the demented duo Twiztid and Lil Wyte for the upcoming Abominationz fall tour. The tour is scheduled to kick off on October 27th and run throughout November.
"I am very excited to be back on the road with Twiztid, as they are like my brothers from another mother. Any time we share a stage it makes for a very entertaining show," said 1Ton from Potluck. "I got extra excited when I heard the tour also features (Hed)p.e. and Lil Wyte. We have toured with (Hed)p.e. before and are big fans of Jahred, as he is very talented and can rap dope and sing hardcore. All the fans better be ready for one big party because this tour is gonna be wicked crazy!!!"
(Hed)p.e continue to support their eighth studio album "Truth Rising”, which saw the group become the voice for a movement that empowers youth and reveals the seedy underbelly of our current political affairs. (Hed)p.e’s video for the track “It’s All Over” can be seen online at http://bit.ly/SBw4TA .
Potluck are touring in support of their upcoming free street album, "THC - The Humboldt Chronicles", which is slated for release later this fall. Potluck's video remake of Tech N9ne's "Worldwide Choppers" can be viewed online at http://bit.ly/NB1hc7 .

Hip-Hop at it’s best is more than entertainment – it is political. Enter Petey Greene: 70’s & 80’s DC radio host turned television celebrity, who made his mark discussing racism, poverty, drugs, and life in America with unparalleled candor. Fast forward 30 years and much of rap has lost its edge, much of its political ambition.
Bringing it back, is Diamond District emcee Uptown XO on the newest cut, Petey Greene, from his soon to be released mixtape “The Color Grey” (10/1). The Washingtonian rapper uses his platform to explore the Chicago School Teachers Strike, the judicial system and institutionalization, and racism in general. Enjoy the new video, look out for the mixtape, and educate yourself for the action.
