Christon Gray (W.L.A.K.) has a new project called School Of Roses coming out on Collision Records soon. To share some insight into the album they recorded some behind the scenes footage of the creative process of the album. The video gives a great view of what has gone into the record as well as gives some sonic samples from the album. The tracks are real soulful, especially that Wes Pendleton track! I can’t wait to hear what they do on it. It’s nice to get these glimpses into the making of the music.
In anticipation of the release of his EP Mirrors and Medicine next week (2/25/14) on RMG, Deraj releases some behind the scenes footage for his video “No Fear”. We’ll keep you posted on the project which will features contributions from labelmate Canon as well as YSMN, Je’Kob and more.

Cuttin on the cuts. Production handled by Sojourn (Future Shock/Tunnel Rat). Can’t wait for this album to drop.

9th Wonder has assembled his Army in order to pay tribute to Kung Fu’s baddest mofo in the business. He brings together Pharoahe Monch, Jean Grae, Rapsody, Big Remo, GQ, Torae, HaLo, Thee Tom Hardy, Sean Boog, Sundown of Actual Proof, Mela Machinko and SkyZoo to spit some Dyno-MITE / Dyno-MITE tracks. Who knew that when I was traveling all around LA looking for a theater who was going to carry the movie that it would blow up like this. Black Dynamite is everywhere. He’s got comic books, cartoons, mixtapes, etc. I for one couldn’t be happier. As happy as when I finally found someone carrying the DVD when it dropped. I swear I spent $100 in gas trying to track it down. Back to the mixtape, the Jean Grae track is muy bueno as is Skyzoo’s “Cool De La”. It’s a mixtape which provides the proper back drop for getting back at The Man and his army of Kung Fu Honkeys……

Short Dog’s In The House was the turning point for Todd Shaw or Too $hort as he’s become known to the world as.

Life Is…, Short Dog’s In The House, Shorty The Pimp, Get In Where You Fit In, Cocktales, and Gettin’ It, all sold over a million records. That’s some serious bragging rights for a rapper. Albums don’t even go wood anymore.
