Earlier this year we had the chance to be a part of the Red Bull Music Academy, which took place in London this year. We tried to live the life of a participant and also brought our video camera along. You might come to the conclusion we are not very skilled videographers (yet), but nevertheless we wanted to share some of the footage we shot in London.
Today was marked in many agenda’s already, because it’s the official release date of the ‘RBMA Various Assets 2010’ compilation album. This time it’s available for everyone in digital form, so just head on over to the Red Bull Music Academy website for a high bitrate DOWNLOAD. Massive shout out to Deluge for the last minute edit and all the people we met in London. Next year Tokyo!!
Frisco’s Low Limit is also known as one half of the formation Lazersword. What a coincidence I was just talking about these guys earlier today and I heard they have a new project coming up on Innovative Leisure. Sneak a peak HERE to see the artwork for their upcoming single “Batman”. Anyways…“Trapper Keeper” has been out for a minute, but the video was released a few days ago. No doubt Bryant is in the face melting business and this video proves it.
Brand new video of FlyLo‘s “Cosmogramma” album featuring Stephen ‘Thundercat’ Bruner. The video was directed by team ‘Special Problems’ and is cosmicly soothing if you ask me. “Mmmhmm” happens to be my fav and so I’m happy they picked this song for the video. Big ups to HipHopDX for yet another one. Album still available through Rush Hour on CD or vinyl or go for digital at iTunes
Label troubles with both Young Money and No Limit caused this talented New Orleans MC to see his debut studio album to face delay after delay. It actually got to the point that Curren$y was no longer affiliated with those two crews and found himself instead releasing a steady stream of mixtapes. And it was not until 2009 that he finally made his debut with the appropriately titled This Ain’t No Mixtape. While his mixtape game didn’t slow down, he began also focusing on his proper studio records, such as Pilot Talk, his first album due out on the Blu Roc label. As the title implies, Curren$y’s still got a thing for getting high and rapping about it. After the jump you can watch the video of the second single “Roasted”. Pilot Talk drops July 17th. Prefix

Maddslinky aka Zed Bias is dropping his new “Make A Change” album in October. The first single is called “Special” and features Omar on the vocals. It has that typical Zed Bias bassline and this soulful tune will be out September 13th. The single will feature remixes from MJ Cole (peep preview here), At Jazz and Simbad so whatch out for that one. The video was made by SEEN© and I know we’re kinda late with this one..
Zo!‘s upcoming album “SunStorm” is coming out on FE Music and will hit the stores July 27th. The video for “This Could Be The Night” (featuring Eric Roberson, Darien Brockington and Rapper Big Pooh) was directed by Matt Koza.

He’s coming all the way from Rio de Janeiro with an all-star 12-piece band, while I’ll be coming all the way from Amsterdam with the homie Marcelo.
