I would like to start this email by thanking you for your continued support in the projects I've released in the past year. It truly does mean the world to me. Working without a manager or publicist I cannot state enough the importance of what your support has done for my career... So for real, for real: Thank you.
Ok on to the business... I am currently in the Czech Republic working on a joint EP with Czech producer Talpas to be released through the European label: Everydays Label based in the Czech Republic. Release date TBD.
I would love to share with the promotional single available for stream right here: "Love of the Drum"
Sure this collaboration could have been done on the internet by trading files... but if you know me, then you know why I did this and continue to do outlandish things for my art. Whether or not this makes the album cut remains to be seen.
Also here are the dates for the min-tour we will be embarking on.

With nearly 20 years in music, Cool Nutz is no stranger to the spotlight. The Portland, Oregon, rapper has released nine solo albums, and has collaborated with a list of artists that includes Mac Dre, Tech N9ne, E-40, Kurupt and countless others. Most importantly, though, Cool Nutz has been an unrelenting advocate for the Pacific Northwest's too-often-overlooked hip-hop scene. In that continuing quest, last year Cool Nutz released his latest album, The Cook Up, via Jus Family Records, and next week, on May 1st, the album will be made available to fans for free download.
Before then, Cool Nutz is releasing the album's latest single, "Superman," featuring Mikey Vegaz, in addition to a video for the single. Lawz Spoken handles production on the track, and it was the heavy-hitting, hypnotic instrumental that inspired Cool's direction on the track. "As soon as I heard the track, it brought the lyrics out of me," recalls Cool Nutz. "It has the feeling you get when you're controlling a crowd; you feel invincible, like a superhero."
The video for the single, shot and directed by Beejan Iranshad, is clean and simple, placing the two rappers together for a series of cut-and-edited performance shots. "We wanted to put the focus on the lyrics and the song," explains Cool Nutz, "so we shot the video in a black room - it really puts the emphasis on the artists."
On June 1st, Los Angeles-via-Chicago rapper Kid Static will release his latest album, It Gleams, via Cobra Music. Earlier this month, accompanying the album's announcement, Static released the album's lead single, and accompanying video, for the song "Moonlight," and today, Static is excited to release the album's second official single, "T-Shirts & Sneakers."
The song is a product, through-and-through, of Kid Static's efforts. Static produced the track himself, and, as a testament to his abilities not only as a lyricist but also as a vocalist, delivered the song's powerful, repeating hook in one take.
As for his inspiration in laying the track, look no further then Static's seemingly overrun closet. "This song is for all the t-shirts and sneakers I own," remarks Static. "Seriously, half my wardrobe is t-shirts, and the other half is sneakers. I have shoes from 2007 that I haven't even worn yet, and that's insane to me." But while the track is meant to be a fun take on looking fresh, there's also a more serious undertone. "Don't worry about stupid shit like shoes and t-shirts," remarks Kid Static, with a laugh. "The funny thing is, now I wear all black Chucks and don't even worry about it."
