PR: Kottonmouth Kings Join the Prop 19 Effort in CA


From Kerosene Media:

For Immediate Release
 
Kottonmouth Kings & Melissa Etheridge Join The Legalization Efforts For California’s Proposition 19

 
While Kottonmouth Kings are set to kick-off the second leg of their Party Monsters US Tour beginning on November 13th, the group is currently concentrating their efforts on the upcoming November 2nd, 2010 vote for Proposition 19 in the state of California. Proposition 19, also known as the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010, legalizes various marijuana-related activities, allows local governments to regulate, while permitting local governments to impose and collect fees and taxes.
 
“We are on the verge of a historical legislative breakthrough with Proposition 19. It is not a perfect proposition, but it is a huge progressive step towards common sense drug laws,” commented Brad X from Kottonmouth Kings. “We are releasing a free exclusive track we just recorded called ‘Legalize It’ to celebrate this monumental occasion. It is one more step to ending prohibition."
 
Kottonmouth Kings' drummer Lou Dog is currently working alongside criminal defense attorney Bruce Margolin at the Los Angeles chapter of NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) campaigning for the Prop 19 vote. Lou Dog was recently photographed at a fundraising event in Los Angeles, CA alongside Grammy award winning singer/songwriter Melissa Etheridge for the legalization efforts.
 
The Kottonmouth Kings will kick off the second leg of their Party Monsters Tour alongside Big B and Slaine on November 13th in Hollywood, CA at The Key Club. Kottonmouth Kings are currently touring in support of their new album, “Long Live The Kings”, which debuted at #26 on the Billboard Top 200.

From 2SPR:

Credit To The Nation, New Single 'RTA' Out Now, Remix Package Features Chuck D, Readies New Album

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nov. 1, 2010

###

LONDON, Nov. 1 /2SPR/ – The comeback single from British Hip-Hop pioneers, Credit To The Nation, titled ‘RTA’, is out now. Available at digital retailers as a remix bundle, that includes a version featuring Chuck D of the legendary Public Enemy.

The new single is the first release in twelve years from the band, and has received positive reviews from media. With strong airplay support from XFM London, and BBC 6 Music, where it was recently featured on the ‘Roundtable’ segment of the 6 Music Steve Lamacq show.

Credit To The Nation made a name for themselves in the early nineties. Their debut album "Take Dis", birthed a selection of political hits and popular singles. These included ‘Teenage Sensation’, which reached #23 on the UK Singles Chart, 'Sowing The Seeds Of Hatred', and the breakthrough single, ‘Call It What You Want’, which sampled the guitar riff on Nirvana's ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’, gained the band a following outside of the rap market, and also appeared on the soundtrack to the Jude Law movie Shopping.

Since then they toured with such artists as Manic Street Preachers, Therapy, and Chumbawamba, and played live at The Glastonbury NME stage, Phoenix Festival, and the Reading Festival Melody Maker Stage to name a few.

‘RTA’ is the first single taken from the upcoming as-yet-untitled album, due for release next year. Fans can expect collaborations with Chuck D of Public Enemy, Sadat X of Brand Nubian, Nathan White, Charly Vox and Benji Webbe, lead singer of Welsh ragga-metallers Skindred.

‘RTA’ is out now, on Crossflow Recordings.

Masta Killa Presents... Wu-Tang: The Next Chamber

For Immediate Release
November 1, 2010

DIGITAL ALBUM FEATURING EXCLUSIVE AUDIO & VIDEO FROM CLAN DUE 11/16

The Next Chamber

With lyrics as sharp as swords, countless gold and platinum albums, and a die-hard international fanbase, the legendary Wu-Tang Clan needs no introduction.  Although he may not have emerged as quickly as his Wu-Tang brethren, Masta Killa has become one of the Clan’s most reliable foot soldiers in the 21st century.  In 2004, he released the gritty Wu classic No Said Date, becoming the last Wu-Tang member to release a solo album.  Since then, MK has released another acclaimed album (2006’s Made In Brookyn), and has appeared on numerous albums from the Wu family and beyond.

Now that he’s established himself as one of the Wu’s top swordsmen, Masta Killa is ready to crack open the vaults and unveil the next chapter in the Wu legacy.  Featuring rarities like "Black Mamba" and exclusive, never-commercially-available tracks like "Metal Lungies (OG Version)" and "Brain", Wu-Tang's Masta Killa Presents: The Next Chamber is an essential collection for fans of the Clan and the east-coast hip-hop aesthetic they helped create. “It’s a lot of hidden gems that I didn’t know if the world was ready for,” explains Killa. “Every artistic creation for us is another chamber, so this is the next set of creations.”

The digital-only album, set to be released November 16th through Royal Lion Entertainment, features Masta Killa on every track, plus appearances from RZA, GZA, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Raekwon, U-God, Killah Priest, Timbo King, R.A. The Rugged Man, Pete Rock, and more.  In addition, fans who purchase The Next Chamber on iTunes will get five exlcusive video tracks showcasing live performances and interviews from the Wu.

While fans await Masta Killa’s third studio album Loyalty Is Royalty, The Next Chamber will hold them over. “The fans have been waiting so long for the main course, so I wanted to give them an appetizer," says MK. "This is the h'ordeuvres, something to whet your appetite.”

PR: Boobe & Raheem DeVaughn Unveil "My Way" Music Video


From Yo! PR:

Boobe & Raheem DeVaughn Unveil "My Way" Music Video

There's only one way for rapper Boobe and that's all the way to the top of the Hip-Hop charts and the music game.

Boobe, who's real name is Roger Vincent, is a Washington DC native aka "The District" where he was born and raised. This is where he hit the ground running and earning his degree in the school of hard knocks. Boobe is well on his way to become a well known force in the Rap game as an artist and entrepreneur ready to make the whole world go nuts with his new single "My Way" featuring R&B crooner and multi-platinum recording artist Raheem DeVaughn and produced by hitmakers J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League (Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Young Jeezy).

"My single 'My Way' simply means to find your own way to achieve your goals! You don’t have to follow what others have done before. You can create your own lane and see what works best for you," explains Boobe.

The official music video, directed by Chris "Broadway" Romero, is an extraordinaire piece of work for the hit single "My Way", an instant anthem for the DMV movement.

"It was great working with Raheem as he is always ready when it comes to make good music. He just gets in the booth and let the track take over…no writing on paper, it always comes out right. I know Raheem for a long time now and we come from the same streets and the same struggles so it was a blessing working together," Boobe added.

In "The District", Boobe has set his sights on giving DC its own identity as a key player in creating the sound that distinguishes the South from the North. In the late 90's, Boobe discovered rapping as a mere hobby, in retrospect he didn't realize how far it would take him, but he never looked back on his pursuit to success. To escape the street life, several years later, Boobe pursued his vision to start his own label; One Way Records where he presently acts as the label's CEO and an artist in his own right. Ironically, the name of the label was tagged as a reminder of the one way street he lived on.

Boobe won over a sizable following in the DC area after releasing "One Way Up" in September 2003; an album declared an instant, certified classic with street credibility and fans galore. His debut album featured 17 songs, eight of which remained in regular rotation on XM Satellite Radio. "One Way Up" reached the Billboard charts three times and #2 in the country on XM Satellite Radio's 66 Raw channel. Following several successful underground mixtapes and independent releases, the young go-getter was grinding as part of the DC-based label he founded; now known as Oy Boyz Records. After other members came on board, they collectively decided to change the name of the label to Oy Boyz Records (formerly One Way Records).

Being focused, driven and motivated are the key ingredients to the future success of Oy Boyz Records. Selling well over 10,000 LP's independently, reaching the Billboard charts, performing in shows with major artists like Juvenile, Slim Thug, The Neptunes, Lil Wayne, Paul Wall, Pastor Troy, DJ Cannon and the Geto Boys just to name a few, having been featured in respected publications, has been the journey so far for a star in the making in less than 2 years.

With his crank beats and a hardcore sound, Boobe's motto is to stay focussed with his sites on the future; his new single "My Way" featuring Grammy nominated singer Raheem DeVaughn is a masterpiece of work, which proves to be a commercial hit on radio and in the clubs.
