NY rapper Gotham Green and New Orleans producer Quickie Mart present "Natural Progression" featuring Oklahoma rapper Jabee. "Progression" is from the forthcoming fourth installment of their Haze Diaries series, following the video for "Hard Way", "New York Times" featuring Grafh and "Everything" featuring El Prez.
Snow Tha Product playes a seriously twisted, jilted Bridezilla in her new video for "Til Death" produced by Essay Potna. The song appears on Unorthodox, which is available on iTunes and Snow's WakeYaGameUp.com! Get Woke!
Representing Brockton/Boston, MA Notoriety ventured across the globe to join forces with Germany-based producer, Politiks for their new single "Leverage". This track is a prominent anthem for the truly righteous Hip Hop heads out there. Notoriety's distinctly original style (in today's current Hip Hop scene) and Politiks upbeat/one-of-a-kind/hype production talent are all highlighted throughout the song's entirety. Rarely used today, "Leverage" even features a "dropped-chorus", singling out Vydle Sinez and Incredible Chuck as they converse. Enjoy.

With their highly anticipated new album Top of the World set for release on August 14th, California's own Slightly Stoopid are providing their fans with an early treat. They will be giving away a four-song sampler for free today on their website.
The sampler contains a radio edit of the album's title track, plus the album tracks "Don't Stop," "Just Think" (featuring ex-Jurassic Five emcee Chali 2na) and "Pon Da Horizon." These four tracks are a clear indication of how the band's legendary mash-up of sounds and good-time grooves has amassed them a dedicated worldwide following.
Coming on the heels of a prolific 2011, where he dropped three solo mixtapes (The Rocks Report, Premier Politics, Premier Politics 1.5), and a 45-city tour with Mac Miller in the first half of 2012, Rocks displays an advanced and mature sound throughout Lap of Lux. Producers on the collection include Cardo (Taylor Gang), Hit-Boy and J.Hill (Chief Keef) as well as his partner in The Cool Kids, Chuck Inglish while features include Casey Veggies, Mac Miller and more.
One of the standouts on the 15 track offering is “You Know What” produced by the in demand Hit-Boy (G.O.O.D. Music). The song features a playful beat with Rocks rhyming differently than fans might be used to. He explains, “I feel like I couldn’t have done this on one of my group projects, or even my earlier solo projects because it’s a new sound that I’ve never really dealt with. I’ve got a real rapid-fire flow on there. This is something new that I’ve just stepped into.”
Another banger on Lap Of Lux is “Reservations.” Produced by Cardo (Taylor Gang), Rocks reminds fans of his rap skills and his easy delivery and story telling ability is showcased on this mid-tempo song. Not forgetting where he came from, Rocks teams up with his partner Chuck Inglish for “Good Sushi,” a Cool Kids sound with a 2012 spin on it.
