The wait is finally over! I am proud to present my FIRST music video. The track is entitled Keep It Player by southern rapper Miles Stone. The vid definitely tells an interesting and unique story and was a lot of fun to make! It’s from his mixtape Blue Collar, which can be downloaded here. Please let us know what you think about it! Check it out below and hit me back with your questions/comments/concerns. 🙂
New dopeness from three-hit wonder Trinidad Jame$ featuring up and coming rapper/producer/director Travi$ Scott. The track is entitled $hut Up and like many of Scott’s recent works is hip with a trap sound. I can definitely get with it. Gives me the feel of listening to Chief Keef without the ignorance. Check out the track below.
Charlotte, North Carolina emcee Shane Coble a.k.a.

Shane followed up his first project Young, Dumb & Dope with the Barstool Bounce EP which included production from Mad Decent’s DJA, and included Not Playin which was featured on MTVU, Fuse and AOL Music.

Day dropped his first full-length album Vice Matters in 2012. Stranger recently dropped the video for first single Shut Up.
“The idea behind the mixtape as to make something that is interesting from start to finish that will keep the listener guessing what’s next… in true mixtape fashion,” says Stranger. “You’re Welcome showcases what I can do as a rapper and what my DJ can do as a DJ.” You’re Welcome is mixed by Famous Jason and presented by Atlanta rap media imprint Greedmont Park and clothing label We Are The Process.

FIVE POINTS MARTA STATION
30 Alabama St SW
Atlanta, GA 30303
Tonight is a heartbreaking night for many who had faith in the judicial system. Here’s a recap if you haven’t heard about the case. George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch member who went against command to pursue and eventually kill 17 year old Trayvon Martin was acquitted of all charges. Zimmerman said he found the teenager, pictured above, to be suspicious because he was wearing a hoodie. This event has sparked an outrage, particularly within the African American community. Many, myself included, feel like this never would have happened had the victim not been a young, African American male.
To be totally politically incorrect, I’m hurt, enraged, and terrified by this verdict. The fact that a young man of any race can be profiled, pursued, then killed and his murderer can go home as a free man is appalling and disturbing to me. It makes me seriously scare to raise a young Black man in this country for the fear that the same unfortunate thing can happen to him. Trayvon’s family and those who were close to him are in my prayers. I cannot imagine what they must be feeling like right now. Please keep them in your prayers as well.
The details for the march are above. We will be meeting promptly at 2pm in front of the main entrance of the Five Points MARTA station to march to the CNN center. Dress comfortably. If this story infuriates you as much as it does I, please come out and support.Like the Civil Rights movement in the 50s and the LGBT of recent years, you’re voice can be heard and you can make a difference.RIP Trayvon. Your death shall not be in vain.
Last night visual artist Paper Frank hosted a free exhibition of his work in Midtown Atlanta and the hipsters came out in full force. Over 3000 people came to see the dope paintings of the tattoo/visual artist and he did not disappoint. The event also had free liquor for those 21 and up, so everyone in attendance definitely had an awesome time. Check out Frank’s work above. If you’re interested in purchasing one of his works, check out his site paperfrank.com. Below, check out a quick recap of the event as well as dope and candid footage of fellow visual/hiphop artist Chiirp and rapper Miles Stone TTU [too turnt up] freestyling.
