Hamza Ahmad AKA Hanz Gable is a New York born Hip Hop artist of Palestinian descent who hails from Fort Greene Brooklyn New York. This 20 something artist first caught people’s attention with “Who’s Gonna Stop Me” which featured M.O.P.’s Lil Fame.
At just 18 years-old, Long Island native LBO is making a name for himself as a rising young lyricist who’s wise beyond his years. As an avid beat-boxer, LBO composed his first song at the age of ten, citing his lyrics as an ‘emotional outlet that was incomparable to the sensation of anything else.’ Since then, LBO has become accomplished and earned a following for shredding instrumentals on numerous freestyle tracks.

"Better Known As NYC" (Produced by Relavant Beats), will be featured on Livin Proof’s upcoming LP Die For A Deal 5.0; which is an extension of his recently released mixtape, but will include six brand new tracks as well (“Better Known As NYC” being one of them). Die For A Deal 5.0 is slated for release in early April.
Produced by David 'Mojo' Stewart this club anthem was fused with an electrifying video which was added to a multitude of sites and blogs earlier this month. Speaking on the track which will feature on his impending release, A Daye is Forever, Damon said "While recording the Song and Video for "Move That Body" I did what felt right to me and never looked back but honestly didnt know what to expect from my audience."
With a show tomorrow for all my fellow residents of the DC, Maryland & (Northern) Virginia area, as I will be backing up Random aka Mega Ran as he flows through my area as part of his tour with Louis Logic! Ran & I will reconvene this weekend for 2 more shows in Boston at PAX East, as well as be participating in a couple panels at the convention as well on Friday; Follow Ran on twitter for all the details.
Also, I wanted to briefly update you guys on a couple projects I'm frequently asked about the status of, beginning with Ran & I's next collaborative effort- Project Dream Master aka the SEGA-tribute album we are doing. It's in the pre-production phase but we have narrowed down ALL your votes to 20 games that will be used- which I'll post online soon to view ;) We got big shoes to fill after the success of Forever Famicom but we are definitely up for the challenge!
The other thing I often get asked about, which always makes me happy since Panacea has bee quiet since 2010, is if indeed myself & Raw Poetic are working on a new album?!? Well, let's just say we been talking about concepts and I been getting that itch to go on a wild, imaginative ride sonically ;) BTW- this Fall marks 10 years of us as a group, so stay tuned for the celebration via some gifts for you fans!
There's more music & merch on deck for the Spring as well, but that's for another email blast. Thanks to everyone for all the support, looking forward to hitting the road and seeing you guys starting next month! Also, since formspring is shutting down and I urge you all to ask me any questions on my facebook fan page and I'll make sure to answer them on my next Ustream of "Neosonix". Cool? Cool! Peace.
