Believe the hype. Coming out of Queens, Rock Mecca is one of the most anticipated top prospects rapidly rising out of the New York music scene. His vivid rhymes, energetic flow and rugged delivery have quickly earned him a spot above other up and coming lyricists as one to watch this year.
PotHolesInMyBlog.Com recently released a FREE instrumental compilation featuring and exclusive instrumental track from Brown Bag AllStar, J57. "Midnight Snacks" contains exclusive tracks from J57, Paul White, Danny! and many more talented/up-coming producers.

From Papatoetoe to New York City, David Dallas pays homage to the All Blacks winning the Rugby World Cup by releasing his latest video for "Start Lookin Round" off the deluxe edition of The Rose Tint out Nov 8th in the U.S. & Nov 14th in New Zealand/Australia. Video directed by Tom Gould & Alexander Richter.
On the heels of releasing two critically acclaimed projects (2008's "Children of God" and 2011's collaborative effort with Rugged N Raw "Mohammed Dangerfield" which featured the well-circulated cut with Immortal Technique "Break Of A Star"), Hasan Salaam returns with a new EP "Music Is My Weapon" (appearances by Steele of Smif N Wessun, Chace Infinite, Reef The Lost Cauze, Eternia and production by Snowgoons) which is scheduled to be released on 12-6-2011; and even loftier goals.
While Hasan already spends a great deal of time doing community outreach (he organizes food and clothing drives in New Jersey every month), he is using his EP to spearhead another cause he is very passionate about and hoping it can help change people's lives--- literally! Hasan will be donating all of the proceeds from the release of "Music Is My Weapon" to the "It Takes A Village" foundation to help aid the building of a school, medical clinic and clean water well in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa in an effort to provide change to a Country that remains one of the poorest and least politically stable in the world (Hasan saw this first hand in 2010 as he became the first U.S. Hip-hop artist to perform in Bissau as he headlined a concert there to promote freedom of speech).
On Monday October 31st, Hasan will release the video for "1911" and we will include more definitive information on the "It Takes A Village" initiative.
