After three singles, Top $ Raz delivers Reign On The Parade, his first full length offering since The New Flesh. Teaming up with KevinNottingham.com and indie-label start up Throat Chop Music, Reign on the Parade is Top $ Raz's flag in the sand, marking his territory in this rap game.
With feature collaborations from producers such as J57 and Audible Doctor of The Brown Bag AllStars, 6th Sense, Badd Lukk and others, Reign on the Parade serves as a true reflection of the Far Rock, Queens native's life. With the passion and energy in his rhymes, coupled with hard hitting production, it's safe to say, Reign On the Parade is truly the two headed dragon that will turn heads.

Around the same time Alucard and IDE recorded For Fuck Sake they had another project in the works: Stonecutters – Primitive Tools. A concept album based on “Building” in both a literal and metaphorical sense. The album was titled “Primitive Tools” in reference to bringing it back to the basics of creating Hip Hop. After IDE was in the Hospital with a collapsed lung, moving, and falling out of touch with some of the producers. The project slowly fell apart. Even with over 15 songs recorded. A good portion of the tracks were mixed, however some of the songs were lost on a destroyed hard-rive. Now in 2012 after scavenging the best raw recorded mixes from the project, Creative Juices Music has decided to release this material as album project called “Uncovered Remains“. With over 15 unreleased tracks. Most never before heard. All though not every track got to get the finishing touches, and final mixes. The sound of the album captivates the time it was recorded and the mind state the artist were in. We decided it was best left untempered. After mastering and touching up all the tracks as best as possible “Uncovered Remains” is ready for immediate release. Digital copies will be available on itunes September 18th, and physical copies will be made available shortly after. This project will hit home for fans of Force Fed, Watch Them Fall, FFS, and Table of Content. Hard hitting raw production by the likes of: IDE, Benzie, Junior Makhno, Al Tarba, Black Sparx, R1 and Philup Drummond…. Alucard and IDE claim it is some of there most lyrical content to date, and our excited to finally have this material see the light of day. Dust off your stereos in preparation for these “Uncovered Remains” sure to leave the most hardcore Hip Hop fans wondering what planet these artist came from, and how they come up with some of the content they rhyme about.

One of the UK's most original and entertaining acts Kings Of The City return with their brand new video for The Devil. For this track they mix their now familiar blend of Blues and Hip Hop with a harder edge inspired by bands like Black Sabbath and Rage Against The Machine.

PR: Prolific's Second Single "Divien Direspect" From "Amor Fati"
Genre-Bending Toronto Rapper Encourages Listeners to Defy Authority in Edgy New Hip-Hop Hybrid Release
North American society has been designed to remove power from our grasp. We are taught to prove ourselves to others instead of following our own path. We are taught to be meek, polite, and soft-spoken… and to respect authority. We are lead to believe that if we are truly deserving of power and influence – then some authority will decide our merit for us. Think universities, award societies, record labels… think the everyday fight to prove yourself in North American society.
In Prolific's new single "Divine Disrespect", he presents himself as a man at odds with this world. The bleak industrial tones of the song match his extreme disillusionment and isolation. However, despite the initial hopelessness presented, there soon emerges a tone of extreme resilience. This resilience is divine disrespect. A disrespect for the Gods, and in turn a disrespect for all authority. Divine disrespect is a rejection of any force that imposes itself on the human will - no matter how great. Divine disrespect is the chisel that shapes our fate, and the stake we must drive into the hearts of our greatest enemies.
Produced by Prolific and Toronto music-renegade James Pew at Euphonic Sound, “Divine Disrespect” captures the energy and artistic-ethos surrounding Prolific's long awaited sophomore release, “Amor Fati.” The music pushes traditional hip hop boundaries, and is a logical step in an era defined by ever an evolving hip hop sound – a sound shaped by hip hop innovators such as Kanye West and EL-P. Prolific and Pew offer their own form of divine disrespect in their creation of this radical and powerful song out of a purely indie platform.
