Standing apart from his fellow Atlanta counterparts, Dee Brown’s style of rapping is what many would title as “Real Hip Hop” in a genre where substance is continually drowned out with mentions of money, drugs and sex. In his music, he harnessing his current emotional state and translates them in a way that is a breath of fresh air. In his latest single and music video “Sleep Walking Diaries”, he reflects on his life, decisions and his own demons. The visual for it was directed, filmed and edited by Tyler Mitchell who Dee Brown and him have formed a collaborative relationship and plan on making more music videos together.

Illmaculate, with his Sandpeople crew, just wrapped a month-long European tour, performing across the continent and sharing stages with the likes of M.O.P. and Slaughterhouse. Now back in the US, and prepping for a forthcoming official album release party in Portland, Illmaculate is excited to release the latest single from his recent Skrill Talk album, “How You Do That,” featuring Wu-Tang Clan rapper Inspectah Deck and OnlyOne.
Lyricism has long been Illmaculate’s forte, and while he continues to shine throughout Skrill Talk, this latest single, “How You Do That,” is most notable, aside from the guest 16 courtesy of Inspectah Deck, for the track’s beat. That beat comes courtesy of producer Sapient, who is part of Illmaculate’s Sandpeople crew, and the instrumental, with its blaring horns and synths, is nothing short of anthemic. “The beat inspired this song,” says Illmaculate. “It’s one of my favorites on the album.”

Doing music, there’s a large grey area among what it means for an artist to be “working” or not. Fans are often hasty to judge their favorite artists, assuming he or she is ‘falling off’ if more than a year goes by without a formal project. In many cases, it’s not so black and white, and life just happens.
For Philadelphia MC, Nico the Beast, life definitely happened. On the heels of the summer 2010’s ‘The Beast Within’ (which earned him a Best Male Artist nomination from the Underground Hip Hop Awards), Nico planned on moving from the influence of personal tragedies in his music. However, as 2011 dealt the untimely, nearly consecutive losses of his mother and younger brother, he found his artistic direction juxtaposed with life events yet again. Unwilling to compromise the vision of his upcoming releases, he chose to create when the time was right instead of rushing any projects.
Now, nearly two years since the release of his last album, Nico the Beast prepares himself for the proverbial ‘back and better than ever’ moment with the release of ‘True to Form.’ Produced entirely by Vanderslice and featuring extraordinary verses from Outerspace, Reef the Lost Cauze and more, True To Form sounds nothing short of better than ever. Cop the new EP and all previous releases from Nico the Beast on his Bandcamp page now for only $5!
USVI Native, Jahman teams up with Ms. Kayla Bliss, who is currently putting the final
touches on her Love Rebel Ep with The XTM.Nation, to present his lead single ‘Top Of My World’. ‘Top Of My World’ is the first of a
series of singles produced by Philip ‘Fatis’ Burrell for Jahman’s upcoming album with Splatter House Records.
The video was shot in Jamaica and directed by Max Sainvil.
Chippy Nonstop, the undisputed queen of twerking, is unleashing her new video for the single”Kicked Out Da Club.” The second visual from her mixtape, #GlobalSkoolOfTwerk, which was released in April, premiered on Complex last Friday.
With her own Twitter proclaiming her club mantra “VIP and STILL kicked out,” Chippy embraces her reputation for going H.A.M. in the club, as well as the inevitable repercussions of doing so. “I mostly only get kicked out when my favorite DJs are playing and I do something stupid, like climb on a huge stage during Major Lazer and run away from security,” says Chippy. “I realized I can’t control myself when a song I love comes on.” I think we’ve all been there, done that.
Someone who is very familiar with her party antics is Kreayshawn, who got behind the camera to direct the ideo for her good friend Chippy. Says Chippy, “Kreay’s really professional on set, and she’s one of my really good friends so I felt comfortable the whole time. She had a vision and she really went for it.” Her other good friend, director and producer Spaghetto provided the animation in the beginning of the video.
“Kicked Out Da Club” could be the theme song for the motto #YOLO with its hypnotizing beat backing up Chippy’s party-anthem lyrics. In the video, she purrs in Español, manhandles the DJ booth, and whips around her cyberpunk rainbow braid, all the while, pushing her noble agenda forward. “Mostly, I want people to just stop over thinking ad being over-analytical or situations,” says Chippy. “Stop being so scared that someone will judge you for having a good time.”

Take Notice. Up and coming Toronto hip hop emcees J Shiltz and MC FÜBB (The Cypher, Hip Hop Headz/H3) and NYC veteranWordsworth (eMC) have come together over a banging instrumental by Juno-nominated producer Fresh Kils and collaborator Bix. With cuts courtesy of Halifax DJ Uncle Fester (The Extremities), listeners can expect a metaphorical massacre of brilliant lyrics, an awe-inspiring display of flows, and distinct deliveries from these three masterful microphone controllers.
It’s become an almost cliché complaint of hip hop music lovers that the rap scene is saturated with a plethora of artists, making it hard to find real talent amidst the mire of unexceptional music that is released. With Take Notice, J Shiltz, MC FÜBB, and Wordsworth are making it clear that they have the skills necessary to stand out and excel in the rap industry (and demanding that those who aren’t up to par quit rapping). Hip hop heads everywhere need to Take Notice – this year they will get the music they deserve.

Forget the powers, the gadgets and the ridiculous costumes; the true measure of a hero is the quality of his theme music. With the December 2011 release of Kosha Dillz’ Super Jew Anthem, Leedz Edutainment‘s own Sly Young (best known for hosting the label’s shows in Boston) joined the illustrious ranks of Superman, Batman, Spiderman and The Tick, but something was still missing—namely, the visuals. Today, we’re proud to present the record along with the Booth-exclusive world premiere of director D. Gomez’ official video. Here, Falside‘s head-noddable bass-percussion beat bangs in the back as the L.A.-by-way-of-Jersey emcee delivers verses packed with tongue-in-cheek braggadocio (“Combination superstar and a Jewish Star of David / Yeah, every bar is sacred.”) and subcultural allusions (JDate.com gets a shout-out). Meanwhile, the visuals feature Kosha and Sly kicking it at various Hebraic hotspots throughout Brookline, Massachusetts. Fans can find this jam and much more on Leedz Edutainment‘sThe Write Off, Vol. 3 compilation, released late last year and available for free streaming and download in the Booth. – DJBooth

YOU DON’T KNOW JACK, the multi-million selling interactive trivia franchise, has just launched on Facebook. This new design is the first in its category to fully leverage the connected nature and immediacy of social and mobile gaming platforms.
YOU DON’T KNOW JACK brings its well-known party-play style to Facebook in three important ways: First, by automatically matching a player against his or her Facebook friends who have already played that specific episode; second, by providing a direct option to challenge other Facebook friends at the end of an episode; and third, by offering multiple ways to share results, brag, and taunt friends through Facebook’s social channels, bringing the same type of banter experienced during a game of YDKJ on the couch into the Facebook gameplay experience.
“As we worked on the new design, we kept looking for every way we could to recreate the experience of playing YOU DON’T KNOW JACK with your family and friends,” said Steve Heinrich, Designer and Editorial Director, Jellyvision Games. “With this design we think we’ve accomplished a lot of that, even though we’ve never actually met your family and friends, probably.”
“We also wanted to create a gameplay experience for YOU DON’T KNOW JACK that could really mesh with the larger social and mobile environment,” said Mike Bilder, General Manager of Jellyvision Games. “So we optimized the game to tight, five-question episodes with an editorial schedule that allows us to release multiple episodes each week, often with very topical content. Plus, it ensures a constantly-updating app that will remain alive and fresh, not static and unchanging like many other games I’ve played at home in my knickers.”
With its editorial calendar, YOU DON’T KNOW JACK can produce content that engages players with questions related to many of the topics they are currently discussing on Facebook on their Timelines, bringing gameplay more tightly into the social media experience than any previous game.
YOU DON’T KNOW JACK’s new design will be rolled out on iOS (iPhone and iPad) and Android later this year, allowing players the opportunity to compete cross-platform. Cookie Masterson, the game’s most popular (and sassiest) host is back, as is the game’s core structure, with humor-infused questions that range from Shakespeare to Scooby-Doo. The game will be free-to-play with free games provided frequently. Users can also win free games through achievements, and multi-game packs are available for purchase.
“Even with the new design and new features, players will be instantly familiar with YOU DON’T KNOW JACK on Facebook,” said Allard Laban, Creative Director, Jellyvision Games. “Favorites like the DisOrDat, Gibberish Question, and Jack Attack are all there. And of course, Cookie Masterson is still our host, due to an apparently legally binding contract that he signed years ago in crayon.”
This new version of YOU DON’T KNOW JACK represents Jellyvision Games’ latest in a history of innovations within the interactive trivia space. When YOU DON’T KNOW JACK first launched in 1995, it was the first game to truly immerse the user into a fully interactive game show experience, making players feel like the game’s host was talking directly to them. The company also created Who Wants To Be A Millionaire for PC, which at the time was the fastest-selling PC game in history, and the TV game show Smush, which aired on the USA Network. To date, the YOU DON’T KNOW JACK franchise has sold more than 5 million units and generated $100 million in revenue with versions for CD-ROM, consoles, iOS and tabletop.

Punk rave band the Dirty Rich from Essex are releasing their new single, ‘F**k The Jubilee’, on Westway Records – just in time for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
As well as taking a pop at the United Kingdom’s hereditary monarchy, the punky junglist rave anthem also targets the corporate exclusivity of the London 2012 Olympics with its shouty, vitriol-fuelled polemic.
The track takes its queue from ‘God Save The Queen’ by the Sex Pistols, but in reality is a completely different beast. It probably won’t win an Ivor Novello award, but its filth and fury – kinda Dead Kennedys meet The Prodigy.

A strong contender for the most likely-to-be-quoted rapper at the water cooler, Wordburglar’s lyrically potent oeuvre runs the gamut from thoughtfully casual to ridiculously ludicrous. There’s just something about the way he puts words together that keeps people nodding their heads and smiling their mouths. With finely constructed whimsical lyrics, a sharp sense of humor and a dedication to true-school rap, ‘Burg has carved a niche for himself with audiences across Canada and beyond. Showcasing a wide variety of concepts and styles, the new record “3rdburglar” has something for everyone and everything for someone. If you’re a person who enjoys things, don’t sleep on Wordburglar.
Aside from tearing up 10 tracks on 2011′s Backburner: Heatwave album, its been 2 years since Wordburglar last dropped a full-length solo album (2009′s underground hit Burgie’s Bassement) and it’s with great pleasure that we’re preparing to unleash 3rdburglar, Wordburglar’s third full-length release of all-new material. Featuring 14 tracks of original lyrics, beats & cuts blended meticulously with ‘Burg’s patented style, every track is a stand-out. 3rdburglar also features production from Juno-nominated producer Fresh Kils & long-time collaborators Beatmason, Timbuktu and Uncle Fes, with guest appearances from Canadian rap cohorts More or Les, Chokeules, Garthim-Master and Timbuktu as well as Los Angeles underground rap legend Riddlore (Chillin Villain Empire/Project Blowed). We’re looking forward to sharing.
