Mississippi keeps dropping new music on your earholes, Rashad Street and Y Valentine (1/2 of The Syndicate) take us on a trippy ride inspired by classic Organized Noize and assistance from Canadian, misunderstood, R&B crooner Remy Shand. “Save It For The World” serves as the first single from Rashad Street’s highly-anticipated The Paper Towel Chronicles: Chapter One. We do not have an exact date on the release but We will keep you updated on it’s release as we learn new information.
7even:Thirty calls upon the power of Gensu Dean to handle production duties on his new aptly titled album The Problem. He’s here for the deniro and to lay some bodies out on “$ Stacks & Body Bags”. Dean provides a bass heavy, industry backdrop for a journey into the mind of a maniac hell bent on painting the town red with the blood of whack emcees. July 8th is the date, you will need to mark that day down on your calendar. Nothing will be the same once The Problem drops.
Yaves is from Columbus, Ohio born emcee and his track “One Wish” is a personal and honest reflection by a young man trying to navigate the turbulent waters of life. The production is jazzy and smooth, it must be a Columbus thing, it has that J. Rawls feel to it. Solid track, keep tuned and we’ll keep you updated. For now, you can check out his website and his 2013 releases Favor Over Fury and In Autumn’s Ear.
The Windy City has been produced a plethora of emcees and lately we have seen an influx in up and comers from the Chi.

Also, check out his debut single “All I Know” from his forthcoming album 21 (To Anyone).

TRACKLISTING AFTER THE JUMP
David Banner speaks and presents a short documentary at Rust College in Holly Springs, Mississippi. I can’t really add much to this, so just check it out. Directed by Pauline Dyer and worth every second you spend watching. I will add this actually, I believe wholly in what David said, we should never believe someone just because they say. We should always be willing to do the homework and study to discover the truth for ourselves. That’s the only way that we will believe what we believe.
Production handled by 9th Wonder, who coincidently dropped The Wonders Years today. This track however, is from Yahzilla and Aquil’s collaborative effort The Bright Lady Sessions, dropping soon
