I Self Devine dropped the second mixtape in his “The Culture Series”. Download The Upliftment Stuggle:
Two of the best known, most respected labels in the metro area just released music videos. RSE dropped I Self Devine’s “Sweat Equity” off his new mixtape “L.A. State Of Mind” (which you can conveniently download here) and Stophouse dropped Prof’s “Gampo” off of his album “King Gampo” (which if you’ve been hiding under a rock and haven’t downloaded yet, you can download here)

Carnage The Executioner made a music video for his re-creation of the song “Star Destroyer” from the classic Eyedea & Abilities album “E&A“. The original version featured Carnage on the second verse. This song and video were recorded and created over a 4-day period in November 2011 both in dedication to the late, great Hip-Hop icon Micheal Larsen (Eyedea), and in celebration of his birthday (hence the amended title “Heaven’s Gate 11-9-11″). The entire song was re-created by Carnage The Executioner: All lyrics and vocal scratches were performed by Carnage. The music/beat was entirely beat boxed – the only instruments used were a tambourine and woodblocks.
Those of you who follow Rhymesayers have probably heard his previous album “Before I Self Destruct”, which was released in 2005 and in case you didn’t know, it’s also amazing. He hasn’t released an album since, so this is huge news. Watch his big announcement here:
Happy New Years from RSE y’all. New Brother Ali album Mourning In America and Dreaming In Color is right around the corner, be on the look out for more announcements from it!
