PR: Dialectrix to Support De La Soul in Sydney, Australia
It’s with great excitement that we announce DIALECTRIX to support the SYDNEY stretch of the highly anticipated De La Soul Australia tour, celebrating the 20th anniversary of De La Soul’s classic album, ‘De La Soul Is Dead’
We’re giving our member’s the opportunity to buy tickets to these shows before anyone else.
This song in particular is very dear to me because of where I'm from and what my people in that part of the world are currently going through. There's been a lot of uproar and attention to environmental disasters arising from the Gulf Oil Spill that came about this summer and towards the latter part of the year but what has gone unspoken is disasters of this ilk that occur on a more frequent basis in parts of the world particularly Africa that don't even register a blip on the radar.
The good folks at DJBooth.net have featured the song in its own column and have left room for your listening pleasure, comments, thoughts and reviews.
As I woke up on my drool-filled laptop, I realized, "OH snap~! I forgot to send in the FMF on the second F! But don't fret, instead of letting these free music go to waste, I'll give it to y'all today to bump for your weekend. One love to all the FMF readers, your listening is indeed appreciated.
B.o.B ;: No Genre
[As we all know, B.o.B proved himself as the hottest newcomer in rap this year, although it was a very long time coming. To show that he isn't just lazy in celebrating his newfound success, "No Genre" shows B.o.B as a cat who stays on his hustle. "No Genre" features appearances from CyHi Da Prince, Young Dro, Bun B, and T.I.]
[Yeah, this is a mixtape I criminally slept on. "Sit Down, Man" was released for a while, yet folks are still introduced to the styles of Das Racist to a great approval. They already earned a spot on Rolling Stones' Single of the Year and while Das Racist is one of the funniest rap group names I heard in a while, yet they're not joking. Just joking, they are joking. Just joking, they're not joking. Hahahaha jk?]
[Evidence and the Beatles. What do they have in common? While you think of any comparision, check out this new freEP from Evidence as he mashes his rhymes together with Beatles joints. This also happens to be released on the 40th anniversary of the Beatles' break-up. Wow, 40 years already, huh? R.I.P. John Lennon and George Harrison.]
[You might remember that I put this up on FMF last year. However, this one is the second edition where there are additional vocal tracks sprinkled in for your holiday jingle. If you haven't heard it yet, then don't be a Scrooge and d/l it for your holiday cheer.]
[Don't you ever say female rappers are dead, unless their name is Nicki Minaj. Rapsody is determined to show that females can rock as hard as men, or even better, in this new Star wars-influcenced "Return of the B-Girl" mixtape. With 9th serving as the Obi-Wan, Rapsody takes you to the galaxy far, far away with her ridiculous rhymes on display.]

The Artifacts were a thing of the past — a part of underground hip-hop history. Known for their two albums, 1994’s Between a Rock and a Hard Place and 1997’s That’s Them (and their biggest hit, “Wrong Side of Da Tracks”), the Newark-based duo split up in 1998. El Da Sensei and Tame One (the latter pictured above) continued their careers as solo artists.
The breakup wasn’t bitter; they just decided to record separately. A little over two years ago, however, at the Rock Steady Crew’s 31st anniversary party, they found themselves together on stage again, and they really liked it.
First single ofF DJ EFN'S "DIGGIN IN THE TAPES" COMPILATION ALBUM CELEBRATING 15 YEARS OF MIXTAPES FEATURES INCLUDE KANYE WEST, BUN B, PITBULL, RICK ROSS, KARDINAL OFFISHAL, JOE BUDDEN, WYCLEF, CAPONE-N-NOREAGA, REDMAN & MORE..
MP3: IMAKEMADBEATS - "Flyers" Feat. MidaZ The Beast
Latest Single From IMAKEMADBEATS Delves Into The Darker Side Of His Pre-Album Dual-EP
In the latest single to come from IMAKEMADBEATS' innovative dual-EP Daylight/Nightlight, IMMB enlists the lyrical styling of MidaZ The Beast to form the duo Blakout and take us into Nightlight. A stark contrast in both name and style to the Daylight side of the EP, "Flyers," the first single from Nightlight, is chock full of angry rhymes over a "venomous soundscape," as IMAKEMADBEATS calls it.
Taking aim at the darker side of life MidaZ spits about a lack of respect from promoters and all hip-hop heads in general, delivering his rant with palpable emotion, with the song's title and repeating chorus serving as the main focal point for the emcee. "I’ll never forget Method Man’s 'Torture,' says IMAKEMADBEATS, speaking on the inspiration for the song's subject matter. "In it, he said, 'Say what you like, just spell my name right.' This song is dedicated to people who don’t respect you enough to spell your name right."
Nightlight, in its edited form, will be available for free download next week. Daylight/Nightlight will be available in its full, unedited form for sale as a physical release in the near future.
Keep an eye out for the free Nightlight EP, out soon, and IMAKEMADBEATS, out January 18th, 2011.
IMAKEMADBEATS has built his reputation on an obsessive dedication to his craft and a mad scientist-like approach to tweaking samples, drums, and live instruments - proving himself to be both a rapper's producer and a producer's producer. Most people first became aware of IMAKEMADBEATS from his 2009 collaborative project The Transcontinental with Oxnard rhyme-slinger Roc C (a project that featured the likes of Oh No, Big Pooh, Rakaa Iriscience, and Chino XL), which subsequently led to the nationwide Smash Mouf Tour. In addition to the much-anticipated forthcoming Doxside Music Group self-titled debut, IMAKEMADBEATS is also unleashing his dual-EP concept album Daylight/Nightlight, featuring Butta Verses and MidaZ the Beast respectively. Also in the works are projects with Beretta 9 (Wu-Tang's Killarmy), his BlakOut album with MidaZ, an instrumental project, and more placements on projects by artists seeking the "IMAKEMADBEATS" treatment to their music.
