New videos from Reflection Eternal In This World off of their upcoming project Revolutions Per Minute and a super dope track Deep off of Elzhi’s Leftovers mixtape. We’ve received a few treats so far but it looks like this year is going to be full of good music releases.

Here’s the first offering off of Ciph Diggy (of Sleepwalkas) upcoming solo project Untitled Wave due out at the end of March.
The cut features Ciph’s partner in rhyme K. Gaines and M-Tri. I’m digging (no pun intended) the newness can’t wait to hear the rest of the project.

Here’s a new mixtape from YC the Cynic entitled You’re Welcome. We posted the first appetizer Superman not too long ago. He comes through with the full course meal. The mixtape features some of the risers in the New York indie scene such as OISD, Warren Britt, and Final Outlaw just to name a few. Obviously hip-hop is not dead and it’s refreshing to see that the future of it is looking promising as well.

Seems like a bunch of folks have been waiting for this one since the single dropped and set the net a buzz.
Although I was looking forward to the new material I admittedly wasn’t digging the first “tester” single. Good thing the rest of the album doesn’t disappoint.


Some new material from Joe and Royce that has the internets abuzz of lately and rightfully so. A lot of rewinds on this one.

Looks like the suits have their ears to the street or are paying someone to do so. Either way McDonald’s link up with Dollar Van Demos to run a campaign on their dollar menu using New York indie artists Joya Bravo and Wordspit. I haven’t seen the Wordspit commercial yet unless it’s the second that will run. However, the commercial with Joya Bravo has been aired last weekend during the NFL playoffs.

In addition to McDonald’s, Subway teamed up with MTV in doing a piece on Homeboy Sandman in their Fresh Buzz series.
You can check the video for Homeboy Sandman’s segment here.

Shouts to Dollar Van Demos. Congrats to Homeboy Sandman, Wordspit, and Joy Bravo. It seems like the streets are doing more then just watching.

We’re pretty cool with the folks over at hailmegatron.net and I saw this posted a day ago and decided to check this out out of curiosity. A few tracks in and I knew this was something pretty cool. I won’t give all the treats away but if you’re a fan of the Transformers and love hip-hop then this creative instrumental project is a good look for you.

Shouts to hailmegatron.net and Jett-I-Masstyr who’s out of Texas.

Pardon the tardiness on the posting of this but I wanted to listen to this before posting (yeah I know a little selfish)
With that said someone was ever so nice in recording the live musical guests that rocked with The Roots as the closing segments on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon show. Shout to TSS and Shake for doing the artwork.

We give you more good material from the new wave of talent in the NY indie scene. This time it’s from OISD (Operation Industry Shut Down).
The 5 man group of J. Monopoly, E.Y.E Q aka Johnny Storm, J.O., Khid2che, and Showtyme have been on their grind this year, and their hard work pays off with their debut EP, just in time for the holidays.
