As promised, STS drops the mp3 version of the record produced by MPIII (thats "3" not "I,I,I" lol) Demand More 2 is set to drop in March around the time of SXSW where the G.O.L.D. Gang will be invading several stages. Hit www.slimisgold.com for all things STS.
NYC MC Donny Goines is releasing his new EP on March 4th. Donny has been doin his thing for quite some time now, its good to see artist really puttin in that work to become successful. Errbody cain't be Drake...(no shots, just sayin)
G.O.L.D!! The homie STS is penning bars as we speak to finish up the third installation of his rally cry mixtape series, Demand More 2. A lot of new artists are referred to as a "breath of fresh air" but believe me if you inhale what this kid is smoking you'll never want "fresh air" again. Keep a look out for DM2 droppin in early March.

Went to Treesound Studios last night (Whatup @iam_mali) to check out the homie Bobby Ray do the damn thing for his free UStream show. After seein him rock "Haterz", "Created A Monster" and my personal favorite "Satellite" I figured I'd repost the link for the May 25th Mixtape for those of youse who may be unfamiliar. Recently BoB's release date for his debut LP The Adventures Of Bobby Ray was pushed up to April 27th (I see you BRich and TJ.)
This is 1 of 50-11 videos that Wayne shot before he made his way to the whoscow. Is it just me or does YM not really show much love to Shanell aside from being the thick-thighed eye candy *kanye shrug*
CJ is a soul singer hailing from Baltimore The Package is a preview to the full length CJ has coming out on J Records this summer which features collaborations with Salaam Remi, Bangladesh, Raphael Saadiq, Rico Love, Dre and Vidal, KP and Malay. I see you J Erv!
This jawn comes from the homie GLC mixtape Respect My Come Up and is produced by 2 of my favorite white guys The Kickdrums. With a hook that starts "Hey, shut the fuck up boyeeee..." how can you NOT love it. Shouts to Noah Banks on the directorial tip...
DD172 is hard at work bringing us some good ol authentic hiphop. This is the trailer for the highly anticipated 24 Hour Karate School mixtape that drops Monday Feb 15th, Happy belated Valentines Day hip-hoppers.
Rik Cordero mans the camera for the 1st single off of Joell's "Free Agent" LP thats set to drop April 20th (awesome date!). Shouts to the homie Novel for smoothing this thang out *pauze* lol. This is a good look for Mr. Ortiz (Yaowah!) this joint has already been added to rotay at Hot 97, hopefully other PDs will follow suit.
BTW the kid they got to play him has gotta be his young doppelganger (look it up) haha
Over the past several years we've all enjoyed the hilariously inappropriate shenanigans of movies like "Superbad", "Knocked Up", and "Forgetting Sarah Marshall". So, in the spirit of funny white guys comes this sure-to-be-classic "Get Him To The Greek" Starring Jonah Hill, Diddy, and Russell Brand. I for 1 will be there well baked, front and center, when this jawn comes out.
On February 9th, DJ Center releases his debut album, "Everything in Time". Lovers of Hip Hop, Jazz, Soul and Dub music take heed to the album's incredible cast featuring - Oddisee, Zaki Ibrahim, Gretchen Parlato, Middle Child, Renee Neufville (of Zhané) and Samia Farah, amongst others. The record includes a smoky cover of Chaka Khan's anthem, "You Got the Love" and a remix from Waajeed of The Platinum Pied Pipers.
IFWI sends a special congrats to the homie DJ Center on the release of his debut album!

Ima keep it one-hunned, I aint really fux with homie last album. But this seems to be the brand of Usher that we all know and love. Hopefully the new album Raymond vs Raymond won't disappoint. Oh yeah, and Noemi Lenoire is baaaad.
This has been one of my favorite "wake up in the morning" songs since it dropped and its good to see that the video recieved a proper treatment. Shout out to Chris G. for directing a BANGER. Whatup TDot!
Shoutout to the homie KBerry in Chicago that put me on to this RI-diculous video. This is the jam session to end all jam sessions (*no shots* at The Roots lol) but 8 people with 5 instruments originally from 4 Continents speaking 3 languages for 1 song coordinated over the internet...clap for em.
