As anticipation for the upcoming Kaos & Kronik Tour grows louder every day, Kottonmouth Kings and Twiztid hit the studio together to record a new collabo track entitled "Watch Out", available for free download at http://www.kottonmouthkings.com/watchout . The Kaos & Kronik Tour with special guests Blaze and Big B is set to kick off on April 13th in Kansas City.
"We wanted to put together something special for the fans to kick off this co-headlining tour we're doing, so we did this track together and gave it away for free. This song is really a warning shot to the industry about how powerful this underground movement is," says Kottonmouth Kings' Brad X. "This song is for all our die hard supporters, and at the same time it should make all the music snobs and stuck-up critics' stomachs feel queasy."
"Kottonmouth Kings and Twiztid are two groups not to be taken lightly and this track exemplifies it, so WATCH OUT," added The Dirtball. "Both of us burn heavy and represent hard for the underground! With big raps and big bowls, this one is a straight banger!"
California's reigning rip-hop originators, Kottonmouth Kings have long been a cornerstone of one of today's most radical music movements. Combining mind-bending sonics, and fusing hip-hop, punk rock, and classic soul, The Kings have innovated and pioneered a unique signature sound that has set them apart from the pack and has fueled the band's longevity and enduring popularity with a diverse international fan base. Kottonmouth Kings have proved their lasting staying power, building on a powerful DIY ethos and redefining the meaning of a self-empowered group by running their own company, touring and releasing albums on their own terms. Kottonmouth Kings will unleash their thirteenth studio album, "Mile High Club" on August 14th via the group's own Suburban Noize Records.
Where most rappers celebrate the urban lifestyle with the same old themes and images, Twiztid peels away the gloss and exposes the innards. The demented duo, Monoxide and Jamie Madrox, take the hard edge of theatrical rock-and-roll and temper it with gritty hip-hop to create a musical monstrosity so dangerously real it must be hidden with face paint! These two aren't casual gangsters, but rather, they have painted personas that allow them to explore the darkest corners of the human psyche, from superhero fantasies to horror film legacies. With their ruthless raps, most recently heard on “Heartbroken & Homicidal”, the duo may explore every recess of their audience's experiences, every sentimental reflection, and every sinister urge. By becoming something unreal, Monoxide and Jamie Madrox are free to be real. Whether it's on-stage devastation, or home stereo infiltration, Twiztid's music will take you somewhere you've never been before. The scariest part is when you don't want to come back.

MP3: Fly Moon Royalty - "Lemonade (Mikes Hard Remix)"

The lemonade keeps pouring from the Seattle-based duo, Fly Moon Royalty. Last week, singer AdraBoo and producer Action Jackson released the video for "Lemonade," one of the singles off their recently released, self-titled album. The video premiered with OkayPlayer and has since been featured as Afro Punk's Video of the Week, and today, the duo is unveiling Action Jackson's official remix to the song, "Lemonade (Mike's Hard Remix)."
Action Jackson, whose real name is Mike (hence the "Mike's Hard Remix" title), took the vocals from the original song, with the goal of creating a track that is starkly contrasted against the original, while still keeping with the same themes and ideas of the initial track. "The original 'Lemonade' is a fun, light-hearted song. It has an old-timey, Doo-wop sort of feel," explains Action Jackson. "The hip-hop, R&B flavor with synth textures doesn't exist on the original. I wanted to make it a little grimier. Plain and simple."

Herukhuti Ausar of Money Over Death can best be described as a rapping soldier on the rise. Now residing in Los Angeles, the Raleigh, North Carolina native marches to a beat of his own and with his Street LP, Feds Don’t Like Me, (hosted by Greg Street) Herukhuti has crafted a lyrical compilation that is certain to captivate all audiences. He has mastered the art of exemplifying his life’s struggles, through music - music that is genuine, raw, and real; yet uplifting and empowering.
Standing out at six feet four inches tall, Herukhuti is a physical and lyrical powerhouse and his words are just as powerful and enlightening. Encountering and overcoming many of life’s trials and tribulations, Herukhuti has a story to tell and just as important; a testimony to give. Herukhuti believes that his constant thirst for knowledge and truth, combined with his undying resilience and strength, is what distinguishes him from other artists.
As Herukhuti begins to gear up for the release of, Feds Don’t Like Me, (Universal/Fontana/Bonzi) listeners will soon hear the diversity contained within his struggle.
Recently, in an effort to finish Feds Don’t Like Me and his solo-debut, Herukhuti relocated to Los Angeles to work more in-depth with Aftermath producers DJ Silk & Choc and can be found in the studio alongside Dr. Dre as well. Herukhuti’s work with Aftermath artist Slim Da Mobster can be heard on the chilling “Blood On My Shoes.”
Herukhuti is already manifesting his dreams, with Feds Don’t Like Me (which includes guest appearances from Slim Da Mobsta, Glasses Malone & Carl Thomas and production from J Wells and Aftermath producers Choc & DJ Silk), his debut LP, working with the Aftermath team and two placements on the upcoming soundtrack for 50 Cent & Bruce Willis’ “Fire With Fire” movie (one of which is “Blood On My Shoes”).
Herukhuti’s Feds Don’t Like Me will be released in May 2012.
