Philly Emcee Has-Lo enlists legendary producer Kev Brown for his latest reenvisioning, "Never Was Yours." The track appears on Has-Lo's upcoming project "Conversation B" which hits stores November 15th.

The Song:

Never Was Yours is a stark look at life's often unforgiving path. The recognition of everything's impermanance is reflected upon throughout the tracks lyrical display of wisdom. Has-Lo tackles aging, disapointment, loss, financial woes, and the devils deals we make to attain success, all with a stoic's calm and unflinching eye of a narrative reporter.
 
"I compete to win though I lose myself / In a penthouse room, with a view from hell"
 
Underneath Has' heavy lyricism, Kev Brown kicks another Low Budget classic. Kev's track features a funky guitar chop, minimal drum programming, and an atmospheric vocal sample to complete that completes the transformation.
 
The Album:

Conversation B is a complete re-envisioning of In Case I Don't Make It. Exile, J-Zone, Oddisee, Kev Brown, Eric Lau, Apollo Brown and more lend their extensive production powers to the project. It is eclectic, melodic, chaotic, bleak and brutal all at once. The journey of a man at the tipping point continues.

Free EP: Rob Jay - Millionaire Before 30


Free EP: Rob Jay - Millionaire Before 30

Houston's own Rob Jay is excited to release his soulful sophomore EP, Millionaire Before 30. Produced and mixed entirely by Ammbush from the Drums & Ammo collective, the eight-track digital project is being offered to fans for free download.

"This project was really my first full-length collaborative effort where it's just me and a producer," says Rob Jay, explaining his work with Ammbush. "His studio puts you in this ultra hip-hop state of mind. It makes you feel like rap is the only thing that exists." Aside from Ammbush's involvement in the album, Rob Jay's only other guest feature is from John Dew, a fellow Houstonite who was featured on the EP's latest single, "Wise Man," and also handled art direction for the album. "I'm not one to ask someone to be on my album just because they may be hot right now," notes Rob. "John Dew is a friend and I really like his music; the collaboration came naturally."

Rob Jay takes on a variety of different themes with each track on the EP, ranging from his dedication to the rap game on "Hip-Hop Lifer" to his bedroom prowess on "Love Sex, Drug Sex." Before "Wise Man," Rob dropped his first single titled "My Past Life," a conceptual piece that discusses the trial and tribulations of his hypothetical past life in Harlem during the late 1960s. "Millionaire Before 30 serves as a progression from my last project in the sense that it's more cohesive and it's not a group of songs that was thrown together," says Rob. "It's the best-engineered project I've ever done."

If DJ Babu and Trek Life were books, the Dilated Peoples DJ/producer and the West Coast rhymesayer would be shelved in the Non-Fiction section - they're simply too real to fit in anywhere else. The eighth exclusive world premiere in DJBooth and Event Electronics' ongoing 20/20 Music series, this gritty selection finds Babu crafting a slow-rolling synth-sample beat (complete with a hook sampled from U.T.F.O.'s classic Leader of the Pack) to back Trek's unfettered display of lyrical aggression.

Before west coast based hip-hop group LEL Brothas ventured out on a successful national tour where they performed as co-headliners alongside west coast heavyweights The Game and E-40, they were just two artists who desperately wanted to bring music to people in all parts of the world.

Since then, they have embarked on an audacious world tour of the Middle East, arranged by their business partner Calvin Bowers of CB5 Ent, which landed them as the first-ever hip-hop group to perform in Saudi Arabia. They performed at the U.S. Embassy as well as the U.S. Ambassador's Residence and were dubbed "Cultural Ambassadors of American Hip-Hop Culture" by the U.S. State Department.

Consisting of DJ Clone and LBC, as well as their hype man CB5, the members all originate from southern California, they went on to be the first-ever hip-hop group to be broadcast live on Saudi Arabia Television. They also found themselves in Bahrain the day after Marshall Law was lifted, the streets still lined with military soldiers with automatic weapons and a shoot-first-ask-questions-later type policy.

Currently in the midst of their second world tour, this time focusing on eastern Asia, the group has Singapore, Mylasia, Philappeans and Japan all scheduled on their itinerary before their final show in April 2012. They will perform one show only in America, on October 23rd 2011 at the Indian Steele Park in Phoenix, Arizona where they are expected to play for an audience of 25,000 - 30,000 people at the American Arab Festival.

LEL Brothas are promoting their latest album, The Epidemic, which features music from super-producer Wade Martin. Wade Martin is best known for his work with G-Unit and Nas, among others, and as Co-owner of IME Records with DMC of Run DMC.

Lyndon Griffith, better known as Caspa Narkz, has been rapping since the age of twelve.  Hailing from the East New York section of Brooklyn, the borough that has given birth to some of the best rappers in the game, Narkz had no choice but to be influenced by the sounds and styles of his predecessors and be drawn into the world of rap.  By high school, his early talent was evident as he began to win "rap battles" left and right.  "Fitted 2 Da Side" is Caspa Narkz's first single on Black House Records, LLC.
