'Theo vs J.J.' picks up where 'The Great Debater' left off and leads you into Skyzoo’s upcoming album, “A Dream Deferred," out 10/02 on The Faculty/Duck Down Music. Fans can stream the 12-track mixtape in its entirety on Soundcloud; download 4 tracks from the project and purchase the remaining 8 songs from the tape at iTunes for only $4.99: .

In Skyzoo’s Words:

"With this project, I wanted it to be a bridge between “The Great Debater” and “A Dream Deferred”. This mixtape literally picks up where “The Great Debater” left off and leads you directly into “A Dream Deferred." The tape is split into 2 parts, Theo Huxtable and JJ Evans. The first half of the tape has me rhyming as if I were Theo, with the world from his point of view. Being well off, having to live up to a family's expectations due to their success, etc. The second half is from JJ's view, with the sound being slightly more aggressive and the stories built with an "in need of something" attitude. The tape is the idea of the vast contrasts of a life that my people and I dreamed of and aspired to as kids (Theo) versus a life that was more of our reality (J.J). This one is for US. Enjoy”

Within the main frame of 'The Code' (LP #19 from The SunCycle MC) C-Rayz Walz proceeds with another HIp-Hop classic. Covering the essence of Beats & Rhyme with numerous apps embedded throughout this program 'The Code' is the protocol of what Hip-Hop is. Alive in the fresh. Every topic is covered. There is even the mandatory love song titled The Golden Legacy instead of a woman Walz uploads his heart for all his people on a whole and punctuates the need for royalty through the ritual of knowledge of self & others.
In this digital age where you see and taste quicker than you think and absorb 'The Code' is something very personal that you can feel all over. In the midst of the boom bap C-Rayz Walz keeps you plugged into the reality of daily life in the 21st century and gives you 'The Code' to make it to the next level of existence w/o letting the game drive you crazy!
If you like Hip-Hop a little bit... You will loooove 'The Code'. It is the Anti-Virus.

@DevoSpice Update - Pre-order The Best of Sudden Death

Devo Spice Update - Pre-order The Best of Sudden Death

Hey everyone,

I keep forgetting not everyone stalks me on Twitter and Facebook, so in case you missed it I am now accepting pre-orders for the new Best of Sudden Death compilation.  This is a 2 CD set containing the best songs from the various Sudden Death albums I released over the years, plus several updated songs, and a large number of remixed and remastered songs.

If you pre-order the compilation through Kickstarter you can get a third bonus digital album, an exclusive t-shirt, a download of all the Sudden Death albums, (including the old ones which have been out of print for years), and more, depending on how much you pledge.  And there is no charge for shipping so if you want the album this is the best way to get it.  And if you want me to be your butler this is the only way to get that.

To pre-order the album go here and click Back This Project:

And I need to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who has pledged already.  I launched the campaign a week ago and it was funded in 6 hours!

Also, the other day I figured out the track list for the compilation now that the poll results are in.   I pasted the full track list below in case you didn’t see the update.

Thanks again, everyone!  And please help me spread the word about the Kickstarter.  If you are so inclined I’ve even created a banner and will be created an audio promo as well very soon.  You can get the banner here:

@JesseAbraham Debuts New Single and Music Video

“I Ain't Shit; I'm The Shit”, the latest single off Jesse Abraham’s upcoming I Am Water album, explores a duplicity that exists within us all. Sometimes we feel invincible, and other times we feel invisible. The song is an internal dialogue in which the notion of staying true to oneself emerges as the most harmonious option. “It turns out that a battle within ourselves only does damage to ourselves” explains Jesse.
