Forever Unorthodox Music Group Presents: Check - "Soul Story"

"Soul Story" is Check's first official release with Forever Unorthodox Music group, it was released on April 20th, 2013. The 11 track EP covers a variety of issues such as life choices, racial stereotypes, personal preferences along with some less intense and more relaxing subject matter. "Soul Story" is a complete combination of stimulating subject matter, uptempo production, and a deep lyrical touch. Singles from the EP, "High as F%#k" (Prod by AmpOnTheTrack) and "If You Didn't Know" Ft fellow ForeverUnorthodox artist Apollo B. Ex, have gain tremendous buzz resulting in over 5,000 plays on his SoundCloud page.
Hayze first linked with Apathy by chance, when the rap veteran walked in on a recording session of Hayze's at Smoke The World studios. "He sounded mad different than anything I was hearing at the time," recalls Apathy of the meeting. "Most fans would probably expect me to champion someone who has a similar sound as Demigodz or Army Of The Pharaohs, but that's exactly the opposite of what I hear from him, and it's what I dug about his music."
All told, The Smoker's Section is a project that shows the 22-year-old rapper continuing to grow as a person and as an artist, noting that it was the recent passing of his grandmother that encouraged him to put his all into his music. "With The Smoker's Section," explains Hayze, "I focused on this like it was the last thing I'd do, I took it that serious. There's a lot of soul in this music."

Al-One (Sandpeople) - "Cologne & Chronic" (prod. Stewart Villain)
Courtesy Sandpeople Music.
Portland, Oregon: To celebrate his favorite holiday (420), Sandpeople's Al-One The Remedy just released a brand new, seven song EP, titled Shallow Al. True to its title, Shallow Al finds the Portland emcee waxing not so philosophically over such topics as voracious female fans, strains of weed, and designer fragrances. With fiery production by Chase Moore, Stewart Villain, and Pale Soul, barely scratching the surface has never sounded so good!
As an added bonus, Al-One released another new (and 420 appropriate) preview from the EP; the Stewart Villain produced "Cologne & Chronic." So celebrate every stoner's favorite day, and record store day (and forget all the other bullshit that happened on this day throughout history) by supporting Al-One's new record!
