From Chris Herche at Koch/E1 Entertainment:

Johnny Spanish "Shining" feat. Nappy Roots (prod. CHOPS)

* http://www.sharebee.com/c89a3002 *

“Johnny Spanish’s music continues to creep its way onto the iPods of listeners looking for the next big thing. His latest project The Lip is going to make a serious play for slept-on status of 2010. The full-length LP offers 14 tracks that showcase the Louisville slugger’s consistency and versatility and “My Way” may be one of the shining moments, showcasing Spanish’s tongue-twisting lyrics and vocal command of both rhythm and melody.

Vinnie Paz Drops Solo LP "Season of the Assassin" This Week


From Tonia Samman:

Vinnie Paz Drops Solo LP "Season of the Assassin" This Week

Vinnie Paz has had a career spanning almost two decades, co-founding the legendary Jedi Mind Tricks as well as East Coast indie supergroup Army of the Pharaohs, and he’s showing no signs of slowing down.  This week, the underground MC has ventured out on his own with his solo debut, Season of the Assassin, out now via Enemy Soil. Hip Hop DX calls Season of the Assassin, “an exciting break from the usual JMT formula, with Paz hitting his stride as a lyricist and showing a different and more fully-rounded side to his craft.”

The album features a virtual who's who of artists and producers, including Beanie Sigel, Clipse, Freeway, Paul Wall, ILL Bill, and R.A. the Rugged Man.  Vinnie unleashed the first video, “Keep Movin’ On” featuring Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), on his official website last week.  Check it out below.

David Banner & 9th Wonder Release Their First Video From Death Of A Pop Star Full Of Action And Adventure

The Video:

As they prepare to drop their highly anticipated album, Death of A Pop Star,, this summer, the super duo of David Banner and 9th Wonder are releasing the video for the album's lead single, "Slow Down." Featuring R&B chanteuse, Heather Victoria, who also doubles as David Banner's leading lady in the video - who just so happens to get kidnapped, leading David Banner and sidekick 9th Wonder through a maze of unforeseen twists and unexpected turns. "At some point the artist shall be held accountable to his or her self," says David Banner. "This is me understanding that and doing something about it." Fitting in with that theme, David Banner is aided throughout the video by a special pair of sunglasses, allowing the rapper to a glimpse into the dark underworld of the kidnappers he's chasing.

David Banner and 9th Wonder's Death Of A Pop Star will be released this summer via David Banner's Big Face Ent.

Johnny Richter Offers Fans Download From Solo Album


From Kerosene Media:

Johnny Richter Offers Fans Download From Solo Album

For Immediate Release:
 
Kottonmouth Kings’ Johnny Richter Offers Fans FREE Download From Solo Album; Johnny Richter “Laughing” In Stores July 6th
 
Kottonmouth Kings' frontman Johnny Richter is offering fans a free download of the track "Let's Go" online at http://t.opsp.in/Hzxy. The track appears on Richter’s upcoming solo album, "Laughing", which hits stores on July 6th through Suburban Noize. Johnny Richter will be appearing on this summer's Strange Noize tour alongside (Hed)pe, Kutt Calhoun, Big B and Blestenation throughout June and July.
 
“This record has been in the works for years, as I was actually one of the first solo artists signed to Suburban Noize Records back when Kottonmouth Kings were still signed to Capitol Records,” said Johnny Richter. “Now just seemed like the right time to finally release a solo record.”
 
Drawing from his personal and professional experiences on the road for the past decade, Johnny Richter had a rich palette to paint his solo masterpiece. The piano driven melody of “Evolution” takes listeners on a journey down memory lane, while the breezy acoustics of “Remember That Summer” resurrects the feel-good vibrations of Sublime. The album is bolstered by Kottonmouth Kings alumni the Dirtball who drops by on "Nice Cold One" the soundtrack for kicking back with good friends and cold drinks, while things slow down when Daddy X spits on "Hello World".
 
Johnny Richter is currently offering fans autographed copies of “Laughing”, along with a limited edition t-shirt for anyone who pre-orders the album online at http://www.subnoizestore.com/Johnny-Richter-Pre-Order-s/259.htm?Click=23529 .

Krayzie Bone Revives "Lyrical Paraphernalia" for July 27th


From RBC Records:

Krayzie Bone Revives "Lyrical Paraphernalia" for July 27th

For Immediate Release –
 
LOS ANGELES, CA (June 22) – Being one of the greatest hip-hop artists of all time, you have to come correct in nearly every project released. With the competition that is prevalent in this era of hip-hop there is no room for releasing a monochromatic or sub par product. Consistency is king and Krayzie Bone of the legendary Bone Thugs-N-Harmony has been a model of consistency for nearly 20 years. Proof can be seen in his newest solo endeavor “Lyrical Paraphernalia” hitting stores July 27th.
With the success of the last two Bone Thugs albums “Strength & Loyalty” (which sold over 500,000 copies on the strength of the smash single “I Tried” featuring Akon) and their most recent album “UNI-5: The World’s Enemy” (which peaked at #3, is currently #18 on Billboards Rap Charts, and has production by DJ U-Neek), Krayzie Bone finds himself in an ideal position to give his fans more of what they obviously been yearning for.
 
Including appearances from the rest of the iconic crew from Cleveland, Krayzie keeps it all in the family by including his fellow Bone Thugs-N-Harmony on several tracks on the album. “Lyrical Paraphernalia” also features the single “What Have I Become (Trouble)” where Krayzie takes on his life’s decisions and how they affect him on his day to day grind.
 
Founded in the early 90’s, the group was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Rap Performance with their song "Tha Crossroads" from their E 1999 Eternal album.
 
In 1998, Krayzie recorded his solo debut, Thug Mentality 1999. The album was released as a double disc set, featuring a large selection of guest appearances and was certified platinum by the RIAA. In 2001, Krayzie released Thug On Da Line with the album receiving positive reviews from music critics and went gold. Amazon.com also labeled it as one of the best albums of 2001. In 2006, Krayzie Bone was featured on “Ridin'” by Chamillionaire and received the "Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group" at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards.
 
They always say third time is a charm. With “The Fixtape Vol. 3: Lyrical Paraphernalia”, Krayzie Bone is making sure that holds true.
 
In Stores everywhere July 27th.
