Toronto artist, RayRay Malone (aka Rayhaan) brings you, 'REAL'', the new video off of Ray's "Southern Hospitality" Mixtape with DJ NEF-YOU . The single off the mixtape showcases Malone's seemless flow and content over a The Showboiz' riding-out style production. Featuring production from AB and The Showboiz, the 'Southern Hospitality' mixtape is more of a project, showcasing Ray's lyrical ability over southern-style beats and Nef-You's skills on the 1's and 2's.

An unlikely Twitter connection was the catalyst for "What I Know", a collaboration between L.A. emcee Malkovich and producer BecomingPhill, several thousand miles away in the southern African country of Namibia. The music video was shot in the Nevada desert near Las Vegas by director/rapper Ivan Ives, the talent behind recent videos featuring the likes of RJD2 and more. The song also features Sum, the emcee behind The Lil Folk and Lone Wolf albums as well as the hip-hop opera The Nobody Hole. Malkovich dropped the Ayatollah Presley mixtape earlier this year, hosted by House Shoes and featuring Prince Po of Organized Konfusion, Dibia$e, Killer Reese of King Fantastic, P.U.D.G.E., Sum, IamOmni and many more.

It's been a couple months since we've heard from Tanya Morgan, but it's only because they've been cooped up in the lab, working on their upcoming EP, You & What Army. While we wait just a little longer for the November 22nd release of the EP, Donwill and Von Pea have reawakened their bi-weekly podcast, Lessondary Radio, with a special ARMY Edition show, which is available for free download today.
The hour-long episode, which was mixed by Von Pea, includes a few recent favorite collaborations, with familiar names including 9th Wonder, Skyzoo, King Mez, and Che Grand, as well as a couple unreleased mixtape songs from the duo. Tanya Morgan also discuss what, exactly, they've been up to during their brief hiatus and explain some of the concepts behind You & What Army. "This could be considered a crash course in TM current history," says Donwill of the ARMY Edition episode. "If nothing else, it should serve as a reminder to our faithful fans that we haven't gone anywhere and are making our way back to their iPods very soon."
