The frost is barely melting in some parts of the country but Decatur, GA's new up-and-comer, YC, is already laying claim to having the summer's big hit. Far from sitting on his laurels though and waiting for the label to do all the work, he has taken to the road, breaking only later this week to shoot the video to his smash single in Atlanta. Coming up also is a mixtape hosted by ATL's own DJ Greg Street and a feature in the May issue of XXL Magazine.
Hailing from the United Kingdom and labeled as the homeland Rap hero from the huge UK Hip-Hop scene, Sham Pain is thrilled to present his major buzzin' single "Sexy Black Chocolate" and its top notch music video, which was directed and produced by Sham Pain himself.
"My single 'Sexy Black Chocolate' illustrates what Sham Pain has been called numerous times by his female fans and lets them know what can be done in the right situation with the right woman [laughs]," explained the much talented emcee.
MP3: Black Bobby - "Black Superhero" (prod. Best Kept Secret)
With GREAT pleasure, I announce the release of TWO NEW SONGS from me. Black Superhero and You Like Me are both super singles produced by Washington, DC based production team Best Kept Secret. Please find the art attached. Here is the link to Bandcamp to steam and/or download the songs:
I'm taking these two songs to all my media friends in DC and Miami. I'm also taking them on the radio with me later this month at WVUM- U Miami's radio station, MTVU's #1 college radio station in the country and strong suporter of my music.
I am in a constant search for "Black Superhero Music," as coined by Jay-Z. I can kind of describe what "Black Superhero Music" is but, really, its like pornography- I just know it when I hear it. And you can hear it too! My song, Black Superhero is classic "Black Superhero Music" with a fresh beat, lots of horns and tight raps. I'm using this song to declare my status as a Back Superhero. When I worked in politics I believed deeply in the power of "Citizen Superheroes." We can all be Superheroes in our communities. If you are willing to put the good of all the people above your self interest, you too are a "Citizen Superhero." And, as always, I'm on a mission to preserve this Hip-Hop culture and expand the vision of the American Dream.
You Like Me is a party song! The beat is SUPER DOPE and reminds me a lot of Go-Go music. I took this space to tell you a story about my minor frustrations with women. Both verses are most definitely based on real women. I love being a song writer! I can't wait to take this song to DC and perform it with my band. I think it is going to sound real tight live. Hope you enjoy it.
Performing April 12th (stand up comedy at Casa De Ha Ha), April 16th (SWEATSTOCK). and April 20th (420 Fiasco at Area 7)
Dropping a new song called "Bobby Brown" ft. LMS on April 20th
Performing in DC in late June (details coming soon)
Performing in NYC in late July (details coming soon)
Performing in Boston in late August (details coming soon)
PR: GoldStarr Artist Bo Benton Keeps Men "Intimidated"
Chicago native Bo Benton has been added to Allhiphop.com Presents Volume 1: The Street Sweeper Mix Tape. Bo is Track 8 on the CD with the single titled "Got U Intimidated." The mix tape has received great response and has put Bo in the company of some of today's hottest artist. The mixtape includes artist such as: Dr. Dre, Lil' Wayne, Eminem, Jermaine Dupree and the list goes on. She is in great company and her single "Intimidated" is a club banger. Like Bo, the single is a sexy, sassy and fun song that gets the club moving every time she performs.
Allhiphop photo.bmp Bo recently performed at Cherry Pop in West Hollywood, CA. "I was so excited about the response I received from the crowd. You never know from venue to venue how you will be received and this single is catching the attention of such a diverse audience! I Love it! I know we have a winner."
Bo has been consistently releasing music on her independent label GoldStarr and the songs have continuously competed with the major labels. She has landed in the Top 100 on Urban & Rhythmic Charts with her single "Handle This," a remix produced by Grammy Award Winner Bangladesh (Beyonce. Lil' Wayne, Ludacris). Bo has been welcomed into the music industry by her musical peers, which is a great accomplishment in such a competitive industry. "This song "Got U Intimidated" is beginning to take a life of its own" says Bo. Intimidated is the type of single that makes you feel sassy, "got you intimidated because I am fly baby," but also in a fun teasing way so that the man or woman knows that you are open for pursuit. The single was produced by (Excell) and written by Bo and Excell. He is familiar with Bo, her style and what her target audience is looking for. Listeners really get to know Bo in this song, it has given her the platform to open up and reveal a different dimension to her fans. It was evident at her recent video shoot how comfortable she is with performing this song. Don't let the beauty fool you, Bo is like any other young lady. She enjoys work but she enjoys playing even harder.
Expect more from this dynamic diva, she is currently in the studio working on her Sophomore CD, in February 2011 she kicked off the development of her new merch site, which will be stocked with calendars, T-Shirts, dog tags, hats and other Bo branded paraphernalia. In addition "Intimidated", "Queen of the Night" and "Handle This Bangladesh Remix" are all available now for purchase on Itunes. Bo continuously works on building her Brand and creating new fun music for her fan base.
