Video: Illmaculate & OnlyOne - "Gattaca"

Sandpeople: With a stunning new video for their single "Gattaca," Sandpeople duo Illmaculate & OnlyOne have officially set the tone for their upcoming Only & ill LP (release date TBA). The Chase Moore-produced track provides space for the two emcees to spit bar after fiery bar, showcasing their individual styles and collective prowess. Singer J-Rome handles the hook and drives the overall theme of relying on nobody else to succeed. The song itself is heavy but the visuals, courtesy of Kyle Gray & Mind Frame Cinema, take it to the next level.

The King No Crown Tour w/ Blueprint and Supastition (@DTR45 @Printmatic @Supastition_NC)

The King No Crown Tour w/ Blueprint and Supastition

DTR: Hey folks, it's that time of year again. Indie hip hop veteran Blueprint heads out once again on a mammoth 75 day tour in support of his new album, King No Crown. Having myself been a long time friend and fan (and now bookign agent) of the Columbus, Ohio-based emcee and producer, I can honestly say that after hearing an advance copy of the album, it might very well be Printmatic's best solo full length album since 1988.

It's just that solid. Beats, rhymes, concepts, content, everything. And the King No Crown tour is hitting pretty much every corner of the USA, so there's no reason not to come out and check him out. Today, we're simply announcing the first month of dates, stretching from Ohio south into DC, the Carolinas and Atlanta, then through Florida and into Texas, New Mexico and Colorado. So if that's where you're at, save the date and venue.
