“Fresno’s finest unite! West Coast veteran Planet Asia and promising newcomer Fashawn are probably the two best-known MCs to emerge from Fresno, California. On Planet Asia’s new album Black Belt Theatre, the two unite with Michigan up-and-comer Willie The Kid for the posse cut “Fuck Rappers.” The blaxploitation-inspired Black Belt Theatre hits stores everywhere on February 28th through Wandering Worx / Daddy Real / Greeenstreets, with appearances from the likes of Raekwon, Talib Kweli, Paul Wall, Ras Kass, Camp Lo, Strong Arm Steady, Fashawn, Willie The Kid, Torae, Rasco, and more.”
“Fresh off the release of The Mechanics EP, his collaborative tape with super duper producer Falside, Providence’s rugged rally capper Juan Deuce unleashes “Freeze,” the first single off his upcoming mixtape No Sweat presented by Ricky Shabazz and the Boom Bap Boys. “Freeze” features Deuce flexing his sinewy lyrical muscles over a hypnotic, bass-heavy cut from up and coming beatsmith, Fonzi Wells. Preparing No Sweat nicely, “Freeze” sets the table for what promises to be a very strong showing from Juan Deuce and Ricky.”
“MadKem is back at it with his latest single, Ms. Badu. As one might assume from the song title, the Southside emcee recounts one of his run-ins with the fairer sex. There’s no doubt men around the world can relate to this story.”
