Mosaic Music is proud to present the video for the summer smash “Thug U” from Mayhem Morearty & JRDN. Shot in Dominican Republic by Cazhmere, the video was recently debuted by Mayhem on MuchMusic’s RapCity couch (watch here) and is already in rotation. This marks the first single from Mayhem Morearty’s forthcoming album Anarkist’s Cookbook, due late 2011.
Mayhem and JRDN display their impressive chemistry as they seduce their female leads amidst the scenic backdrops of Dominican Republic. Shot over the course of three days, Cazhhmere takes Mayhem worldwide with the video’s sexy, feel good vibe. While always known for his rugged persona, Mayhem gets his “LL” on with lines like “Listen, girl you can’t deny it/We going to cloud nine and I’m your pilot/Be my lady in public, freak in private/thug style, (girl) ya papi that’s the way I like it.”
Anarkist’s Cookbook, Mayhem’s debut LP will be released physically and digitally through Mosaic Music/eOne . Before the album, look for the Mayhem Monday’s video series coming to a blog near you, as well as The Appetizer mixtape with several supporting videos.

Love is enigma, Love is divine, Love is the cure, but the infection to those blind. Love is pure, love is undefined, Love is beyond just a feeling, surely love is undermined. Love is many heart beats, but its rhythm the same, For love is the light through dark streets, it has no image or name. Love is bright, love is light, Love is just, love is life.
Love helps the weak, love contains the spirit, Love embellishes the person, for love is coherent. Love is the problem, yet it is also the solution. A long time ago, I heard love is the filter to its own pollution. They say, love is confusing, love is illusive, Love is a lame, where as lust is amusing. They say, love is a traitor, love is addiction. How can love heal the heart, but still cause the affliction? They say, love is a dream, so I stay in wonder, Shall I stay asleep? Or awake from its thunder?
Love is pain, love is bliss, Love is the acceptance, for all that exists. Love is to see imperfection and treat it perfect, For love sees no error, and if so, that defeats the purpose. Love is the eyewitness, and I witness that love is a high, Which is the highest which I’ve been prescribed to try, For anything else overdosed can cause death, Where as love helps the inside cry, die.
The misled have decided, love is cruel, love is one sided. The hurt have claimed it, love is for fools, love is all painted. The pimps have it twisted, love for the dough, a way to create mischief, The thieves play it wicked, treat the victim with a dose of ambition, Call it hope and draw the conviction, See, leading on is the strategy, in which they create a guilt trip, A way to catch feelings, but never threw their own, the plan was so terrific. Now the one who fell, caught up in the physics, Thought love was everything, till’ they were made to believe it’s all sadistic. You see how it plays out; Love is real for those that never got played out. Although, whom it has hurt don’t realize what they were caught in would never have worked, So it was actually a mechanism of God, too deep a thought for you to grasp its worth.
Love is the internal relief from the inferno within, When it begins to burn and it’s deep, from the burden of kin. Love vaccinates the heart and emancipates the mind. Love is true luxury, for love always shines. See, people often mistake love with external attraction. Caught up in its valence, but the hormonal affection is not the full fraction. We lose hope in the word because we fail to understand that love is more action. Broken hearts galore, those who fall for false caption. See love is both: To some, a form of life, and others a sort of strategy. Some commit when the feeling is right, while others use it to perform fallacy.
In today’s world love is misinterpreted, misused for foul purposes, Some give up their life trying to prove it, while others denounce its services. Love is rare in the world we reside in, Surely it’s the multiplication of love’s existence that we must prescribe them. For love is the spirit that holds the strength, The inevitable power, the bold defense, For love is resolution, the surge through restitution, Love is eternal, a form of universal evolution.
I heard, love was sound for the deaf, sight for the blind, A beat for the heartless, a type of sublime, I feel that love is agape, love is surprise, The glow in your pupil, that’s love in your eyes. I know love is a trip, but, love is also a guide, For love is the grip from above we must confide.
They say, love is dead, I say love is alive, They experience a bit of bitter escape, and say that love is a lie. They say, love is so absurd, a pain with no worth, Love is for the mentally disturbed, insane for you to claim its curse. No! Love is real, what you had, may have never been meant to be, You might have gave it your all, but that doesn’t mean you give up its legacy. Sometimes we fall for those, forgetting only God knows, So if it doesn’t happen, that only means we deserve better than what we lost, hope.
What is love? The light of the moon, the ray from the sun, The mystery of the abyss, the creation among, Where is love? Deep in our souls, in the chambers of our heart, Inside the hemispheres of our brain, Within every shed of light to the strangers in the dark, Love exists beyond time and measurement, For love is uncanny, the extraordinary element, Without love, we are astoundingly weak, and the world is bleak, For love is the foundation and the peak, Love is necessary for internal and external peace.

Dragon Door’s RKC programs offer a wealth of kettlebell information for generating superior strength and power — including books, seminars, training certification programs, equipment and DVDs. Many of the resources are considered modern classics, including Enter the Kettlebell: Strength Secret of the Soviet Supermen, written by former Soviet Special Forces physical training instructor Pavel Tsatsouline. American hardmen of all stripes were quick to recognize what their Russian counterparts had long known — nothing beats the kettlebell, when you’re looking for a single tool to dramatically impact your strength and conditioning. In his companion DVD, Power to the People! Russian Strength Training Secrets for Every American, Pavel shows you how to rapidly increase your strength by 20, 30 and even 50 percent — often in one session.
“This is an ideal fit for our team,” writes John Du Cane, Founder and CEO of Dragon Door. “A great believer himself in kettlebells, Fedor embodies strength and power, and that’s what our company has been all about for the past 20 years — no gimmicks or fads, only hard work and training that builds resilience, strength and power.” As originator with Pavel Tsatsouline of the modern kettlebell movement, Du Cane has spent decades building the world’s most informed and proficient community of kettlebell instructors, now in 43 countries and every U.S. state.

With this release, this duo is giving their own interpretation of the popular Dubstep genre. Their mix of old school influences combine UK Garage, 2-Step and Dubstep with funky vocals into a sound thats both refreshing and hot. The result is something remiscent of artists like Jamie Woon, Burial, Moderat, Mount Kimbie, Skream, … etc. Thanks to their popular first single (Chemical Burn), the duo has gotten quite some attention, including support from some bigger artists.
But the most important thing is for you to judge by yourself!
Toronto rapper Drega drops the visuals to “Overcome” of his Man of the Year Ep (out now). In May, Drega asked fans to choose a song of Man of the Year that they felt needed a video. While it was a toss up between many songs, “Overcome” eventually overcame.
The Alex Young directed clip stars teen actor, Hatim Hassanali, a victim of high school bullying who suffers terribly under a high school bully. “In the song I touch on so many times I’ve overcame, I wanted the video to be symbolic of a specific time I had to overcome bullying”, states Drega.

Starting from humble beginnings, The Real Frequency became the premier hip-hop show on Canada’s first commercial urban radio station by featuring up and coming local artists who eventually became international stars. By giving early support to artists such as Drake, Shad, Boi 1-Da, and Tona, the show consistently showed its dedication to Toronto’s burgeoning hip-hop community. Though The Real Frequency show recently stopped broadcasting due to the sale of its parent station, its dedication to hip-hop lives on in the form of a new album project.
Now, running full heartedly with an idea that evolved from one of the most popular segments on the show, The New North, The Real Frequency has put together a compilation album, also titled The New North, that features over 30 artists best representing Toronto’s up-and-coming talent. Pairing together MC’s, producers, singers, and DJ’s from the city, Real Frequency has created a project that features the likes of JD Era, Marco Polo, Kardinal Offishall, Moss, and more, including aforementioned artists Tona and Boi-1-Da.
Also coming together for the album is Shad and Frank Dukes, who crafted the lead single from The New North, with the song “Flawless.” The song, which also features cuts from DJ Dopey, kicks into full gear from jump, with Frank Dukes’ gritty beat. Shad’s slick wordplay fits snuggly over the driving bass line and well-placed horn chops, an instrument selection that was a conscious decision for Dukes. “After hearing that I would be working with Shad, I knew I wanted to bring him into a different zone,” explains Dukes. “I gave him a rugged, aggressive beat that he absolutely bodied – it was his performance that helped inspire the song title.”
“BED,” is the full length debut album from BEVERLY FRE$H, known for, ”working his pussy off to feed the kids.” The album was produced and recorded by DIAL81 in his grandparent’s basement and it comes off like a smile from a mouth full of jacked up teeth. For this record, Beverly worked with one of his all time favorite rappers, NatureBoy Jim Kelly, formally Nosaj of New Kingdom on the track “What the Fuck,” and Detroit rapper / producer Skrapz on “Liquor& Churches.” Bed, is part of a
series of limited edition vinyl-only releases from Detroit artists on sUPERIORbelly Records.
Known for his on and off stage antics, confrontational humor and bizarre mix of hardcore rap, a cappella crooning and baritone screams the press has attempted to describe his style through such desperate comparisons
as: ”MC Serch meets Dan Deacon in the alley behind a Detroit art gallery for a dance-off. We all win,” and “Beck meets the early Beastie Boys and Cypress Hill at a wine bar and invites them to smoke a fat one in his VW Bug.”(Detroit Metro Times) Beverly prefers Tevin Campbell on angle dust.
At a recent live performance he was described as: “the debatably rabid Beverly Fre$h, who owns a look straight out of Thunderdome, spitting out lyrics like he just gargled gasoline, which may not be an exaggeration.” (youknewblog.com)
Beverly brags of an extensive tape collection and is influenced by artists from Ganksta Nip to Cab Calloway. His new record and live stage show are equally intense and enjoyable and his style is a bastardized hybrid and reflection of the urban and rural landscape of ghetto flea markets and backyard barn parties.
Through the winter he will be continuing his unannounced performances at remote locations throughout the Midwest documented by photographer Travis Roozee, and kicking off the release of Bed with a late summer pig roast in Detroit.
!PORK KNUCKLE! by BEVERLY FRE$H
If you’ve been paying attention recently, you may have noticed things can get pretty tough, frustrating even, for an up-and-coming artist – and especially for an artist who’s style isn’t exactly the sound du jour for the city from which he hails. Dustin Prestige understands all these things, but rather than bitch and moan, the Mo. City, Texas spitter has embraced his differences, and no where is this more apparent than on his new project, The Kelly and Jessie EP, or it’s latest single, “Rise.”
“People in hip-hop always act like the ascension to notoriety isn’t a constant struggle,” explains Prestige when discussing the inspiration behind the new single. “It seems simplistic material is promoted, often at the expense of others, and it’s the ‘new’ MC’s that find themselves having to ‘rise’ about that.” And for a single titled “Rise,” the song kicks off, and runs through, with a strong dose of emphatic, aided not only by Dustin’s mix of singing to go along with his boisterous raps, but also Chris Rockaway’s driving production. Rockaway, who produces throughout The Kelly and James EP, brings a rolling guitar lick and percussion heavy drums for Dustin, who asks on the hook, “Must I fail before y’all feel me?/ Must I vanish before y’all see me?/ Will I always be waiting in the wing… Or will I rise?”

THIS OBSIDIAN BLUE AM1 (308866-404) RELEASE IS THE YIN TO THE PREVIOUSLY RELEASED MAROON AM1′S YANG. THE SHOE SPORTS A TONE ON TONE DEEP BLUE, WITH A STRIKING WHITE MIDSOLE, AND OF COURSE THE EVER PRESENT EXPOSED AIR BUBBLE WHICH TINKER MADE FAMOUS BACK IN 1987. FEATURING A CLEAN SYNTHETIC SUEDE AND MESH EXTERIOR, THIS ONE IS A DEFINITE FAN FAVOURITE.
With our 3-year anniversary now just one short month away, PUSSYFOOT has thrown down the sonic gauntlet, creating what is perhaps their most appetizing sound tapestry ever. The SUMMER MIXTAPE for JULY 2011 is peppered with the kind of tasty jams that will make you wanna slather on the sunscreen, down a few cold ones, and hit the beotch (sic) lickety split.
What’s more, with a runtime under 80 minutes, this summertime treat easily fits on a CD-R…making this scorching summer soundtrack totally portable.
Kicking things off, filmland’s number one beach bum BLAKE EVERETT paddles-out to catch a gnarly cinematic wave–1958′s ‘The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad’. Stop motion chef Ray Harryhausen lends his talents to this picture, serving up grilled-to-perfection monsters like The Cyclops and Two-Headed Roc. Part of LACMA’s Tim Burton-curated ‘Saturday Monster Matinee’ series, Blake’s take on this fantasy film classic (without giving too much away) is quite sunny in a special ‘Blake at the Movies.’ Next up, EDDIE ROUSE–the ‘Foot’s lachrymogenic lifeguard–blows the whistle on two beachcombing listeners in a saccadic summertime ‘Sagelike Advice’ segment. It’s no secret that Eddie and kids are like picnics and week-old potato salad—they simply do NOT mix–so tune in to hear just how sharp this radioshark’s swim fins really are. And rounding things out quite nicely, MISS SHELLEY drops by with a frozen delight…literally. Shell Belle’s July obit a chronicles a popsicle–a man who may not be dead, but damn sure ain’t tossin’ the Frisbee around.
As per tradition, this is the one month out of the busy PF year in which the correspondents actually get to contribute songs to the playlist. Blake, Eddie, and Shelley play ‘Pork the Tork’ as they cue-up crowd pleasing songs to make your solstice swing.
All that, plus Matt ‘n Matt’s tunes to tan-by, featuring the likes of Lightnin’ Rod, The Incredible String Band, Soulja Boy, Wagon Christ, Alien Sex Fiend, Claude Channes, Creepy John Thomas, The Clean, Void and many many more.

Since 2009′s “Trap Goin’ Ham” (and its still-kinda-crazy video), Pill’s profile has steadily risen, culminating this year with a signing to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group, the release of Self Made Vol. 1, and now a new mixtape entitled The Diagnosis. Here’s an amped-up banger from the ATL rapper called “Scottie Pippen Tim Duncan.” The song rides a gothic beat and finds Pill using his raw energy for near-impenetrable wordplay. “They say it’s going ham,” he raps. “No, this **** bunkin’. It’s off the backboard, Scottie Pippen, Tim Duncan.” The Diagnosis is available now.
