Video: Kool Keith - "Goodbye Rap" + Album Release

Kool Keith: Love & Danger on Kool Keith is excited to release his latest album, Love & Danger. The album, which is the 13th of Kool Keith's career, is now available through Junkadelic Music.

With Love & Danger, Kool Keith also continues to hint at, and toy with the idea of, retirement, most of all with the album's latest single and closing track "Goodbye Rap." Keith opens the song calling out new artists, DJs, and business people that don't properly represent the music. And while taking a shots at imposters, Keith also takes the opportunity to set himself apart from the bunch: "While everybody was fat, cooking sausage," raps Keith, "I was wearing Ostrich/ Rap ain't been the same since I had it hostage."

The video, directed by The ICU, captures Keith in a series of classic hip-hop landscapes – namely, dirty stairwells and New York City rooftops – surrounded by a host of full-body women. And while Keith doesn't break out any Ostrich for the video, he does don a series of flashy headwear selections throughout, including a Texas Longhorns hunting cap, a black-and-white checkered bucket hat, and – most flashy of all – a sequined headdress draped down over his shoulders.

PR: Del & Parallel Thought's First Single Off Attractive Sin

DL : Del The Funky Homosapien & Parallel Thought  "Different Guidelines"

Over the past two decades, Del the Funky Homosapien has been
establishing himself in the world of Hip-Hop. From his early 90’s
Elektra releases to his cult classic Deltron 3030, Del the Funky
Homosapien has proven his place in Rap History.

       While awaiting the release of his upcoming album Deltron 2, Del the
Funky Homosapien has once again teamed up with Parallel Thought to
produce Attractive Sin, a follow up to their 2010 collaboration
Parallel Uni-Verses, which Billboard Magazine described as having
“classic sounds with rich layers of funk... that honor the
genre-bending experimentation prevalent in 80’s and early 90’s

       Attractive Sin is the latest blend of Parallel Thought’s East Coast
production and Del’s legendary West Coast style. Parallel Thought, a
group that has been quietly releasing music for the past ten years
with emcee notables such as Tame One, C-Rayz Walz, M.F. Doom, and most
recently, the Alabama group G-Side, pays tribute to the likes of Ice
Cube and The Bomb Squad’s Amerikka’s Most Wanted with the prolific Sir
DZL’s Attractive Sin.
