Atlanta, GA - See, this is why I love Rock City (R. City.) They can write a song like "Man Down" for Rihanna and still make songs like this, "Pussy Monster" ("Cookie Monster" for the clean of mind), for themselves. Remember the "Looking Ass Boy" song/video? Well, this song is reminiscent of that to me and I can imagine the remixes that are likely to pop up for it everywhere. Produced by FKi, this song is a sure-fire (strip) club hit. Download it, put it in your iPod, but don't get caught singing it at work.
The song debuted yesterday, courtesy of DJ Green Lantern, who will host the guys' upcoming street album, "Free At Last" along with V103 star jock, DJ Greg Street. The tape should drop in early August. Stand by for date and tracklisting.

At first, its business as usual for Curt. He robs dope boys, he runs from the cops, and he sells drugs, all while trying to provide for his baby momma and 2-year-old son. But when one of the drug dealers he ripped off comes back for revenge, things in Curtis life spirals out of control.

North Carolina rapper Caktuz drops his new long form video Still N The Hood: A Short Massacre with indie singer TreZure Empire. The gritty video was shot on location in New York and North Carolina, and includes a violently-disturbing montage of footage from a long lost race riot known as the “Greensboro Masacre.”
