Glasses Malone & Cash Money Partner With Suburban Noize

From James @ Kerosene:

Glasses Malone & Cash Money Partner With Suburban Noize Records To Release 'Beach Cruiser' Album On August 30th, 2011

Glasses Malone & legendary record label Cash Money Records have announced a partnership with Suburban Noize Records to release his heavily anticipated debut album "Beach Cruiser" through the label on August 30th, 2011. Cash Money Records CEO Birdman & Suburban Noize Records have created a special avenue for Glasses Malone to deliver his honest, raw and gritty gangsta music to the public. “Beach Cruiser" will feature the single 'Dope' produced by Tha Bizness (who produced Lil Wayne's 'Every Girl' and Jeezy's 'President is Black'), and be executive produced by Birdman, Slim and Mack 10.
"This is one of the best case scenarios for me to release my album, as I still have my major support, but without the pressure of a major label to produce a radio single. Cash Money and Suburban Noize have given me full creative control over every aspect of this album's release, so I can keep it 117% gangsta for the fans," commented Glasses Malone. "This is heaven and the DJ is playing nothing but 'Beach Cruiser' all day, every day! Get ready to cop that album on August 30th, 2011 baby!"
Glasses Malone (aka G.Malone) has spent the last several years overtaking both the West Coast and national music scene with high profile collaborations with industry heavyweights like Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, and Akon. Glasses Malone’s debut album, "Beach Cruiser" has been subject to numerous delays, but Glasses’ unwavering persistence has kept him on the grind and performing on back to back sold-out tours alongside Tech N9ne, Slaughterhouse and E-40.

From Audible Treats:

Video: Drums & Ammo Ft. C-Plus, Bambu & DaVinci - "Vol. 1 Compilation"

Since the release of Vol. 1, the instrumental album from Drums & Ammo, the Bay Area producer collective, comprised of 6Fingers, Al Jieh, Ammbush, and REL, have kept fans fed, first with the release of an array of innovative video releases, and then with last week's release of Extra Clip, a supplemental EP featuring a variety of collaborative efforts with some of the West Coast's finest up-and-coming emcees. Still, there's a chance you may just be catching up to the guys' stellar work now, and if you are, no worries.

Drums & Ammo has just the thing for you, with a new video that brings together all of their video work from the past two months; a video that not only catches new fans up, but also shows off the diverse aesthetic that continues to bring acclaim to the collective.

The video kicks off with Ammbush demonstrating his talents as both producer and rapper with "Speak Up," and rolls on with REL's "Go In," a collaborative effort with newcomer C-Plus, shot in the rapper's hometown of Sacramento. As "Go In" fades to a close, 6Fingers' cartoonish yet heavy "U Funnystyle" takes over, featuring Los Angeles wordsmith Bambu. REL stepped out from behind the boards to direct this one, with a video that features a psychedelic fisheye lens to capture 6Fingers in the studio and Bam exploring the Bay. Finally, Al Jieh brings it home with "Round Me," arguably the darkest single in the series. DaVinci's whispery rasp plays off the haunting instrumentation, while visuals from San Francisco's Chinatown and Financial District parallel the song's gritty feel.

KB Jones :: The Honey on the Side EP

KB Jones

I don't know where KB Jones is from, but I feel where he's coming from while listening to "The Honey on the Side." In other words, regardless of what city Joens represents, he still represents that real hip-hop that we can feel.

Lil B :: I'm Gay (I'm Happy)

Lil B


Straight out of the mouth (or um... fingers) of the BasedGod himself, Lil B decides to give away his controversial album known as "I'm Gay (I'm Happy)" for free for those who can't afford it with ten dollars or is too cheap to spend it. This album, although I've been only couple of tracks in it so far, actually surprised me with the directions Lil B decided to take with this album. And it proves that Lil B is more than just a "hoes on my dick 'cause I look like {*insert random name here*}" rapper. I might give a final word on it when I finish with it, but here it is in its full coming-out mode (no Menudo) is Lil B's "I'm Gay." #Swag!
