02 = Erick Sermon (Breath Of Fresh Air)

A new mixtape from one of my favorite MCs and producers of all time.  The Green Eyed Bandit!

Bio:

One-half of the legendary hip-hop duo EPMD, Erick Sermon was also among the genre’s most prominent producers, deservedly earning the alias “Funklord” with his trademark raw, bass-heavy grooves. Born in Bayshore, NY, Sermon — aka E Double, the Green-Eyed Bandit, and MC Grand Royal — teamed with rapper Parrish Smith in 1986 to form EPMD, an acronym for “Erick and Parrish Making Dollars”; signing to the tiny Sleeping Bag label, they soon released their debut 12″, “It’s My Thing,” which went on to sell an astounding 500,000 copies. In the years to follow, EPMD emerged as one of rap’s most vital acts, their hard-edged beats and Sermon’s mumbled, monotone delivery becoming a great influence on the burgeoning gangsta movement. In addition to producing their own material, the duo also helmed records for the extended family of performers dubbed the Hit Squad, whose ranks included Redman, K Solo, and Das EFX. In early 1993, EPMD disbanded, and Sermon soon resurfaced with his solo debut, No Pressure; he also became a sought-after producer and remixer, working with everyone from En Vogue to Blackstreet to Shaquille O’Neal. After a second solo effort, 1995′s Double or Nothing, he and Smith reformed EPMD in 1997, releasing the LP Back in Business.
Erick Sermon is a hip-hop icon, pure and simple. As a producer, his work has elevated the music of acts ranging from Redman and Jay-Z to D’Angelo and Mary J. Blige. With legitimate pioneer status, unrelenting longevity and a musical discography thicker than a New York City phone book, Erick Sermon is up to receiving his due credit.
“The simplest thing you can do to sound ill today is brag. That’s not what you call hip-hop. I don’t know what that is. I seen the era,” states Sermon. “And I built the era. And I built what’s coming now to be able to say, ‘You know what? I’ma go against the grain.’”
Carving his own path with head nodding affect is the story of the “E Double”‘s entire career. The Long Island native, now living between New York and Atlanta, blasted onto the hip-hop scene when EPMD dropped their classic Strictly Business album in 1988. Armed with gritty beats and dead pan flows, EPMD went on to release five more albums, the last being 1998′s Out of Business. The group nurtured future hip-hop superstars including Redman, K-Solo, Keith Murray and Das-Efx under their loosely knit Hit Squad umbrella. Unfortunately, all was not bliss as tension between Erick and rhyme partner Parrish Smith led to EPMD’s break up in 1993. Now splintered, the two friends went their separate ways with E continuing as a solo artist and promptly forming the Def Squad, consisting of himself, Redman and Keith Murray.
E’s solo career has been first-rate. His debut solo shot, No Pressure (1993) was critically lauded and the immediate follow up was Double or Nothing (1995). While he put his solo career in cruise control, The Green Eyed Bandit’s funk heavy, chest caving beats propelled the careers of those he blessed with his production skills. Besides his aforementioned Def Squad brethren, the list of artists blessed with E’s production is exhaustive with notables including Jay-Z, Ludacris, Busta Rhymes, LL Cool J and on and on. He also cites Teddy Riley, with whom he worked with on Blackstreet, as a mentor.
When he decided to slow down on the outside production, Erick once again devoted time to his solo projects. In 2001 E’s solo career was rejuvenated with the meteoric rise of his hit single “Music.” The track featured Marvin Gaye’s vocals mixed with a Sermon classic beat and rhymes creating an all-new groove.
It was a ..1 hit and received a Grammy nomination. Back in the spotlight, Sermon was quickly scooped up by J Records and released two more solo albums, 2001′s Music and 2003′s React. However, despite bringing two legitimate hits (the aforementioned albums’ title songs) Sermon parted ways with J Records and signed with Universal/Motown Records in late (2003).
This year, E is prepping not to prove anything (over 20 years of Hip-Hop relevance speaks for itself) but to continue crafting hits, inevitably gaining even more fans in the process. Sermon begins explaining his niche in the hip-hop world. “Hip-hop kids know me, now it’s time for pop music fans to know me.”
Hip-hop’s global domination-which he undoubtedly had a hand in ushering in-of late has inversely led to fewer and fewer artists with individual and unique sounds. That is what Erick believes gives him an edge. “Right now I’m happy because they’re on my turf,” says Erick. “You gotta make some music and you gotta say something.
During the time Sermon was working on Chilltown NY he lent his skills to Dr. Dre and Beyonce while fielding more and more calls for production and remix work. Ultimately, Sermon is doing what he does because he loves it, not for material gain. “If you’re coming in for money right now you’re in the wrong place. If you’re coming in for love right now, you’re in the right place.”
Indeed, Sermon has no intention of bowing out anytime soon keenly aware of the influence of his sounds. “My whole thing is about speaking as much truth as possible.”
Or, it could be that he simply has too much music left in him. “I’m gonna keep making music. I’ll let you know when it’s over.” It’s business as usual.

Bio:

Dawn Duchess was born in Sacremento, California to a Military family, the only child of Monica (Elementary school administrator) and Larry (U.S. Army soldier). At the tender age of 1, Duchess and her family relocated to Europe, where she spent her childhood years and the majority of her young adult life in Hanau, Germany. At a young age her parents divorced which led to her strong interest in writing poetry and short stories as a way to escape complications that were going on inside the home.
After graduating from High School in Kaiserslautern, Germany, Duchess decided she wanted to experience life from another angle. Having spent some time in Dallas, TX, Opelika, AL, and Albany, GA, Duchess finally settled in Savannah, GA. She attended Armstrong Atlantic State University majoring in English Communications and minoring in creative writing. It wasn’t until 2008 when she discovered her passion for music after recording her first song, “Side Chick” based off her poem, “Lonely Girl”, at her uncle’s home studio.
Ever since, Duchess fell in love with the art of music and began to pursue a career in the entertainment business. She started performing at campus open mics, local clubs and bars in Savannah. She has been opening act for mainstream artist, Khia and Yung Berg. Her first single, “Heads Turn” featured on Savannah’s local station, 94.1 in December 2010 and in July 2011 she made an appearance on PhreshnPhamous local station in California.
The femcee movement continued as a series of mixtapes began to flood the internet. “Self Introduction” and “2nd Time Around” dropped early 2010 while “Inside My Mind” and “The Rebellion” were released in 2011 on Datpiff.com.
Dawn Duchess will be performing her single, “Rockstar” in surrounding areas of Georgia very soon. Her quick witted punchlines and fast tongue twisting rhymes make her one aggressive mcee. Artist goals include being the next female phenom and one day starting her own independent label. New projects will be dropping summer 2012.

Bio:

Snow tha Product, a native of California, but resident of Texas, is an underground phenomenon and sensation taking the scene by storm in a way that has put male MCs on alert. She’s a beauty and a beast – looks and lyrical skills on the microphone, respectively. Physical stature aside, she stands as tall as any female MC in the game and can wreck a track in fluent Spanish or English with a handful of male MCs trying to match her lyrical level, as she did on Capea El Dough P City Remix.
Let us be forthcoming about 22-year-old, Claudia A. Feliciano. We’d put her up against any female MC in the game, and we’re confident she’d give anyone of them a run for their money… or take their money. She’s a versatile, bilingual lyricist who can fluently chop you up in English or Spanish, so take your pick. She has the swag, attitude, fine-ass looks and in-your-face rhyming abilities to be a hip-hop sensation in the U.S. or Latin America, if only the industry could, as Snow would say it, wake they’re game up.
For now, Feliciano, better known to the streets as Snow Tha Product, is going to have to settle for being an international underground buzz-maker. We’re not exaggerating. You can find her on anything from videos with major-label Spanish-pop sensations like Jaime Kohen, to hit rap videos in Latin America to underground Mic Passes in Texas.
Everything we want in a Latino – excuse us – Latina, hip-hop artist.
“I am versatile and even though I’ve been taught the industry wants you to pick a lane and stay there, I’m too hyperactive for that. I’m going to just swang this Cadillac I call a career.”
Follow Snow Tha Product on MySpace and catch her web shows there every Wednesday at 9 p.m. CST. You can also catch her on Twitter, and download her free mixtape, Run Up or Shut Up here.

http://www.facebook.com/TheCoOp420?sk=app_2405167945

Bio:

A duo quite unlike the Hip-hop world has ever seen, The Co-Op (Conscience Operations) is back on the mic, renewing their vows to destroy any track in their path and make the world safe for dope MCs once again. Not only is this the clash of the sexes the rap world has been waiting for, but they also share a marriage license. Money Stax’ precise, scalpel sharp delivery is the perfect contrast to her husband The Rapture’s off kiter wordplay and unorthodox flow, making them the yin to each other’s yang on every track. With their LP, Mr. and Mrs. Spit, they explored a broad array of topics like love, hood life, world events, and the media over diverse soundscapes from DFW’s top-self underground producers. Both rappers have also branched off, with Money Stax being one half of the highly sought after female MC duo Vicious Cycle as well as her team-up with BX spitter Word Life for Monopoly. Rapture has also dropped his solo debut, The Point as well as an EP called RAMPAGE, with producer M Slago, and Dallas lyricists Dow Jonez and Word Life. Recently, the duo released a pair of high profile music videos produced by the groundbreaking Dallas production team, Ludus Studios, one for the smash hit “You People” by Money’s group Vicious Cycle feat. Neeky Devero, as well as The Co-Op’s highly anticipated comeback single “Rap Money”. Their stage presence is undeniable, having earned them oppertunities like performing at Rock The Bells 2011, and the right to share stages with legends like Raekwon, Ghostface, Pharoahe Monch, Homeboy Sandman, GURU (RIP), Slick Rick and more. Not only is The Co-Op dangerous on mics, they are also their own multimedia machine, recording, arranging, marketing, promoting,and executive producing all of their catalog, not to mention running their own websites, merchandising, and publishing. Conscience Operations is not just a rap group but a empire on the rise and their foundation (each other) just keeps getting stronger.

 

19 = Royalteaz

A fresh new female artist out of Texas!

http://www.reverbnation.com/royalteaz

Bio:

In 2009 Tasha started going by Royalteaz and started to sing and rap freestyle on tracks with more frequent studio visits. Singing turned into rapping and a more hip hop sound had been created by the artist. In 2010 her desires to get her music heard had become a goal. Royalteaz started writing a new song in Nov. 2010 to be a motivation to herself to step it up and New Year’s Eve 2010 she decided to have DaBeatBakerz produce her first single early in the year “Step The Game Up” 2011 was recorded but not released for purchase.

32 = Sinthesis

Pure creative and raw. A mix of rock, blues, and hip-hop which equals pure Dope independent modern hip-hop!

https://www.reverbnation.com/sinthesis

http://sinthesis.bandcamp.com

Bio:

#HandH brought Phaust and Phingaz together for little more than a week to record the foundation for what would become their most cohesive, entertaining experiment in raw, dirty blues rock meets gritty indie rap.
-
Phaust & Phingaz formed as Sinthesis in 2005. Tired of hearing the same ole regurgitated, oversampled sound in hip hop; the two decided to put their vast knowledge of live instrumentation to work. With the latest full length album “Horseshoes & Handgrenades (release date: 9/14/12),” the fourth in the duo’s repertoire, Sinthesis truly shines in a whole new raw format kind of way.
-
Most listeners find it surprising when they find out that Phaust and Phingaz live in 2 separate cities over 1,300 miles away from each other. The two grew up in Salt Lake City together from a young age, learning to play similar music in separate bands until Sinthesis was inevitably fused. Thirsty for a new environment rich in independent music, production specialist Phingaz knew it was a no-brainer to make the move to Minneapolis in 2006. Continuing to write, record and share files back and forth was as simple as living in the same neighborhood, all thanks to this new thing called the internet.
-
No matter the gap whether distance or time, Sinthesis unceasingly establishes dominance.
