Baton Rouge emcee Marcel P. Black engages in what he describes "Proletariat Protest Music" over Houston's That Purple Bastard's rock influenced Queen sampling "I'm Mad". "I'm Mad" is Marcel's take on the Trayvon Martin situation, also serving as a call to action for people to take a stand against police brutality & senseless violence against people of color. "I'm Mad" is the first release from Marcel P. Black & That Purple Bastards "#CivilDisobediance" EP dropping this summer.

T-Pain, Young Cash aka Joey Galaxy, One Chance, ¡MayDay! all help paint the final masterpiece.
When you think of all the qualities music should possess you think of the lyrics telling a story, the arrangement of instruments in a beat, and the energy behind the voice. Music isART. After performing on countless stages in countries like Australia, Japan, England, France, Holland, Spain and more, Dizm has compiled plenty of inspirational scenery to incorporate in this project. The project contains a varied list of producers and special guests such as ¡MayDay!, Young Cash aka Joey Galaxy, T-Pain, Multi Man of the Lounge Lizards, Signature and One Chance. In preparation to release ART, Tay Dizm leaked “Like Ooh” featuring Young Cash aka Joey Galaxy last week and the collaboration quickly went on an internet craze amongst Djs, fans and media outlets. ART definitely illustrates an artist that’s painting a picture through music. The project is brought to you by Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes and Grooveshark.com and will be available for download at 3pm/EST via Datpiff.com.
Around this time last year Tay Dizm released Thank You for Being a Friend, the mixtape contained the single ‘Smoke” featuring T-Pain that quickly received over 35 thousand downloads in the first two days of the release. For the past nine years Dizm has been representing Nappy Boy well with his successful releases of “Dream Girl” ft Akon receiving over 18 million YouTube views to date and “Beam Me Up” featuring T-pain and Rick Ross. Dizm has toured alongside T-pain internationally and continues to headline shows nationwide. His high energy performances, unique footwork and his life’s experiences he shares through his music continues to make him a memorable artist in the game today.

In the world of hip-hop, Atlanta-based Boog Brown spreads her "Dope Girl Magic" like her life depends on it and returns us to the roots of a genre that has literally changed the world. Currently based in Atlanta, Detroit native Brown is not only an emcee, poet and publisher; but she describes herself as a "lover, fighter and artist." This is reflected in her personal style, lyrical approach and unique perspective. Boog Brown is currently signed to Mello Music Group (home to Oddisee, Apollo Brown, Gensu Dean and more).
Today, Boog Brown teams up with director W. Feagins, Jr of High Impact Multimedia to bring us the video for DMV producer Nick Tha 1Da's remix of "Shine." Shot in a stark black room, the video leaves all the bells and whistles to the wayside and simply lets Boog spit. The song appears on Boog's Brown Study Remixes and will also appear on Nick Tha 1Da's upcoming album Give Tha Drumma None. Boog's lyricism on Shine strikes a balance between rugged and emotive with a lyricism that bends her words into a concise rhyme pattern that nimbly graces Nick's soulful and driven remix.
