After releasing This Time Next Year with Good Company group member, Ayatollah Jaxx, Fundamental has now dropped his first ever mixtape, Excepted Everywhere. Known mostly for his producing talents, ‘Mental has quietly been stepping behind the mic more and more. The project includes new songs, beats and remixes featuring Ayatollah Jaxx, Elley Jeeze, Theo Martins, Junia-T and more. The lead single off the project is a personal look at raising ones first born child. Family Knots features the very talented pHoenix Pagliacci (Toronto) and is produced by Chicago’s own Chuck LaWayne.
Based out of Seattle, Washington, the pairing of Vocalist AdraBoo and DJ/Producer/Emcee Action Jackson make up Fly Moon Royalty, an electro-soul duo that’s drawn comparisons to artists such as Gnarls Barkley and Janelle Monáe, among others.
Preparing for their self-titled EP which is due out in the Spring of 2012, Fly Moon Royalty gives us a preview of what to expect with “Do What You Say,” a far cry from your average love song. “‘Do What You Say’ is about, mainly, wanting someone who maybe you’re dating – or close to, or admiring from afar – to physically make the move,” explains AdraBoo. “But it also speaks to what happens when you step back for a minute, and how you can get more than you thought you might be able to get, all with a little bit of patience.”

Producer/Mc 7th Letter drops bombs over Common’s new joint. Also go to www.beliefneverdies.com and download BND (7th Letter & Wes Coas) album, “Definition Of Cool”.
Born and raised in Gardena, CA during an era where gangsta rap was beginning to emerge, 7th Letter had the influences of NWA, DJ Quik and Tupac as well as the soulfulness of James Brown, Johnny Guitar Watson and Willie Hutch embedded in him at an early age. Maintaining that soulful ear that comes from his southern roots, he has been able to capture that exact feel by implementing his own west coast persona to provide that one of a kind style that cannot be duplicated. Growing up in a area where people normally don’t make it out, his musical talents finally began to show when he left California at the age of 17 to pursue Business Marketing at Texas Southern University in the heart of 3rd Ward Houston, TX. Quickly surrounding himself around other musical talents such as The Frontman and Wes Coas, 7th Letter has grown with his music production on numerous projects that include, The Recession, Great Western Form, Can’t Knoc The Wes, I’m Done Talking, Paper Planes, The Undergraduate Mixtape, Vantage Point 86 and Definition Of Cool. He produced Wes Coas single, “Beautiful Mind” featuring Zro, which garnered a lot of online attention.
