Latest Single From The Official SXSW Mixtape Brings Together Brooklyn, Cincy, And NC

The Song:

Two months ago, artists, fans, and industry folks from around the world converged on Austin, Texas for SXSW, with 1,000's of performances throughout the week. For a few select artists, the occasion also offered the opportunity to come together and collaborate with peers, and that's precisely what happened for Tanya Morgan, who came together with Che Grand, King Mez, Skyzoo, and producer Veterano, to record this brand new song, "Without Hands," which will be a part of The Official SXSW Mixtape, dropping May 31st at

The song was recorded on the Unique Squared Mobile Studio, a state of the art recording studio contained within a massive, 45-foot tour bus, as a part of a three-day initiative to bring artists together to collaborate, fostering an environment that allowed artists to harness their creativity. The track was recorded and mixed by Fokis, and three-peat Scribble Jam DJ Battle champion DJ Presyce handled all cuts and scratches.

The Official SXSW Mixtape, which also features Ro Spit, Kosha Dillz, Khaleel, Nick Javas, J-Live, Apollo Brown, IMAKEMADBEATS, Dynamite Brothers, and D.R.U.G.S. Kels of TN2 Productions will be available for free download beginning May 31st at

R.I.P. Gil Scott-Heron

From Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) -- The author of the song "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" - which helped pioneer sounds that would fuse to become rap - has died in New York City. Musician Gil Scott-Heron was 62.

A friend who answered the telephone listed for his Manhattan recording company confirms he died Friday afternoon at a hospital. Doris C. Nolan says he died after becoming sick upon returning from a European trip.

Scott-Heron recorded "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" in the 1970s in Harlem.

He mixed minimalistic percussion and spoken-word performances tinged with politics in a style he sometimes referred to as bluesology. He recorded more than a dozen albums and wrote a handful of books.

Scott-Heron was born in Chicago on April 1, 1949. He was raised in Jackson, Tenn.

Video: Drums & Ammo & DaVinci - "Round Me" (Prod. by Al Jieh)

Video: Drums & Ammo & DaVinci - "Round Me" (Prod. by Al Jieh)

The virtuoso producers behind Drums & Ammo are happy to announce the release of their latest video, this one for the song "'Round Me." The fourth music video from their instrumental debut album, Vol. 1, which was released for free last month, displays the talents of the collective's fourth member, Al Jieh. Listeners might remmeber this song from DaVinci's debut album last year, The Day The Turf Stood Still. "This beat was always one of my favorites--real straight-forward, hard shit--so I wanted to include the beat on the instrumental album. On top of that, I always wanted to do a video for this song when TDTTSS came out, but we never got a chance to," explains Al Jieh, expanding on the Drums & Ammo video series, by adding, "We're not content with just being beat-makers; we're producers. That's why all of the music videos for an insturmental album showcase the finished song."

Arguably the darkest single in the series, "'Round Me" is a dourly realistic visual. The video, directed by D&A's REL (Ariel Nuñez), was shot partly in the middle of San Francisco's Chinatown. "DaVinci always talks about 'hustling hard, like an immigrant,'" says Al Jieh. "Chinatown is all hustlers, and it's a big part of San Francisco history. REL thought it would be fitting to also have him in front of a the US flag mural out there, because there's no bigger hustlers than our government." Adding to the theme, director REL also captured other iconic symbols of hustle, so he pieced in scenes of SF's Financial District. Indeed, it was, as DaVinci's whispery flow and the video's shadowy slow-mo shots ultimately compliment Al Jieh's haunted instrumental perfectly.

Next month, Drums & Ammo will be dropping an EP that will serve as a supplement to Vol. 1 and will include the songs that have been featured as a part of the instrumental album's music video series, and more.

This Is My Rifle: Lil Wayne Isn't the Only Alien Among Us

From Web Since 1982:

This Is My Rifle: Lil Wayne Isn't the Only Alien Among Us

For the past few years there has been no question in my mind that has puzzled me more than the question of whether we are alone in the universe or not. As an intelligent, open-minded and freethinking individual (or so I like to believe), I often allow myself to consider a number of possibilities when searching for a solution to a problem. But when it comes to the topic of extra-terrestrial beings I’ve always been fairly skeptical, which for somebody like myself who believes in secret societies and what are generally perceived as being outlandish conspiracies is beyond unusual. Surely if I believe that there is a secret Illuminist agenda to control every aspect of human life, the idea that visitors from a distant solar system wouldn’t be too far of a stretch.

For some reason the thought of Earth being contacted by alien life forms always seemed unlikely to me. Maybe it was all the years of watching movies about inter-stellar space battles or the fact that everybody who believed in aliens seemed to be nutjobs who were unbelievably disconnected from reality, but I just couldn’t realistically conclude that there was indeed a connection between us and a civilization from another planet.

Then a few months ago I became determined to conduct my own investigation into the matter and educate myself on the truth behind the numerous accounts of UFO sightings and alien/human contact. What I immediately found was that the evidence of extra-terrestrials having been to planet Earth and even maintaining contact with us was overwhelming, and I am now convinced that it’s not just a slight possibility but it’s unquestionably valid.
