Baltimore's Rapdragons Release Single, Tour East Coast

Rapdragons, an indie rap duo from Baltimore, released a new original single, "Different World", today, before beginning a two week tour throughout the East Coast and Southeast. "Different World" is available at this link:
"Different World" was produced by Nick Often of the Rapdragons. The track is built around upbeat percussion with a tight kick drum and snare propelling the track forward alongside a rambunctious piano lick, tempered by a re-recording of a phrase spoken by John F. Kennedy, "the world is very different now," underscoring Nick Often and Greg Ward's rhymes.
It is feel good hip hop that sounds as fresh and new as it does classic, with rhymes playing on a changing world and a sound that draws from that change and finds something born from more than one time and place.

On February 19th, Sadistik will release his new album, Flower's For My Father, via Fake Four, Inc. The album, an ode to Sadistik's father, whom Sadistik considered his closest friend and whom passed away unexpectedly in 2007, features the likes of Cage, CunninLynguists, and more, along with production from Blue Sky Black Death, who produced the album's latest single, "City In Amber," which features Lotte Kestner, and for which Sadistik is releasing the video today.
The track, Hiyah, is on my new cd to be released on Valentine's Day (Feb. 14th), called White Andy. The White Andy project is a fun little EP, produced by Coolzey. We tried to capture the sound and feel of early 90s hiphop, which was a big time for hiphop music.
"Switching gears from his unofficial debut "Saks Fifth", Peezy (@Peezysl) releases his first visual from his upcoming EP entitled Designer. Like the video, the six track EP is extremely thematic and upscale in nature, focusing less upon his lifestyle and more of what it brings. Look out for the forthcoming singles, and The Designer EP to be released the first quarter of 2013."
