In 2010 I was invited into the studio to work on a verse for The Constellations single “We’re Here To Save The Day” from their debut album “Southern Gothic.” I was excited for the opportunity and had a great experience writing/recording the track.  However due to music industry politics Virgin Records decided they wanted Asher Roth on the record instead of me, and my version was scrapped and has never seen the light of day.

I’ve held on this song for over 2 years now, while it’s been collecting dust on a random flash drive. The song went on to become a success appearing on television and video games since its release. The time has come for me to liberate the music. I’m making it available as a free download for all my fans today.

Going through my vault, I realized I have a LOT of songs/verses that were recorded (some for me… some for others) that have never been heard. Many of them have interesting stories behind them as well. Maybe this music will find a home on a project one day… but as long as they find a home on your computer/iPod/MP3 Player, I’m just as happy.

About Dopeshit Records :

Dopeshit Records is an independent label based in Switzerland owned by VR. The story begins in 1994 when he fell into the culture of turntablism and crate digging after traveling in N.Y and London. After he became an addict and between 1998 and 2004, he released four mix tapes and a mix CD and made some guest appearance in other projects. In 2005 "Dopeshit Records" was born and a street CD was released with a Swiss band called "Insurgés". Afterwards he learned more about audio engineering and beatmaking and between all theses years, he made some contacts in U.S-U.K-Netherlands-France-and Canada. Now he focuses on his projects & produces music with different artists.

T.K. Other Realm, Mr. Knowitall, Monty, and Mk Smith, the collective otherwise known as The League510, are excited to release visuals for their latest single, "We Out Here." Knowitall handles the production on the synth-infused, 808-kick-and snare-heavy track, which according to the League, serves to remind fans that the Bay Area crew is staying busy as they put the finishing touches on their forthcoming LP. "The inspiration behind this song," remarks T.K., "was to give the people some heat."

Portland, OR: April 2012. Sandpeople rep The P (aka Portland, Oregon) right on their 3rd new single in recent weeks, produced by fellow P-dweller, Trox.  Trox is a rising star who has already worked with such heavyweights as 50 Cent and Krizz Kaliko.  The P is a perfect example of why Portland hip hop shouldn't be taken lightly and Sandpeople hope to prove this to the rest of the world on their upcoming European tour.  This will be uncharted territory for the crew and to raise support they are urging fans to visit their kickstarter page where plenty of exclusive art, music, and clothing packages are available.  If they meet or exceed their goal it will assist with the European and US tour efforts.  Treat yourself proper - don't sleep on SP or The P!
