Tony Moreaux – Fool’s Gold (Single)

Hailing from Lynn, MA, Tony Moreaux hits you with the new, self-produced single titled “Fool’s Gold.” Tony uses the term “Fool’s Gold” to identify a certain character trait. Particularly individuals who aren’t exactly who they claim to be. These types of people may appear to be “Real” but when it rains, true colors are eventually on display and the act reveals the authenticity. Expect the upcoming, 100% self-produced album “It’s Only Jewelry” to release sometime Summer 2016.

C-Rayz Walz & Suncycle Generals – MLK: Dream Freedom (Video)

The immortal legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. lives on through C-Rayz Walz and the Suncycle Generals Apaulo Treed, L.I.F.E. Long, Young Sik The Gifted and Elohem Star, produced by J-Hoff Sounds. There is not much more to say about Dr. King that hasn’t already been said but these emcees find a way to convey more respect and admiration for the original ‘Thug of Love’ who overcame the Jim Crow America that was destroying black life while the nation watched. MLK is a representative of Peace, Justice and Equality for ALL people not just displaced African kings and queens. MLK taught us to use our voices and hearts to heal the planet. We hope he can hear us… “Dream Freedom!”

Mayhem feat. M-Dot, Edo.G & Big Shug – Patriots (Video)

This is the second video off Mayhem & Soulslicers impending “Soul It May Seem” album, aptly titled “Patriots” for it’s play on the NFL team’s colors. Legendary Boston MC’s Edo.G (Special Teamz / A&E), Big Shug (Gangstarr Foundation), and seasoned veteran M-Dot (EMS) accompany uprising lyricist Mayhem (EMS), as they pay homage to their city, colors and team.

While avoiding the cliche tribute record, each emcee uses individual verses, utilizing wordplay to articulate separate colors (Red, Blue, Silver) amalgamating into the “Patriots” voltron style. Big Shug provides the hook on this conceptual single, Soulslicers lay the drums and DJ LP2 handles scratch duties.
