Album Preview

Sean Price
Imperius Rex
Ruck Down Records/Duck Down Music Inc.
Scheduled release date: August 8th

On August 8th 2015, the death of Sean Price sadly took place. This year the 2nd anniversary of the event will be marked by the release of a collection of tracks by him entitled ‘Imperius Rex’.

The album will feature guest appearances from Method Man, Inspectah Deck, Raekwon, Junior Reid, Buckshot, Ruste Juxx, DOOM, Prodigy, Styles P, Smif N Wessun, Rock & more. Amongst those who handled production duties are Marco Polo, Nottz & Alchemist.

Finally, the album name? ‘Imperious’ means: befitting or characteristic of one of eminent rank or attainments, commanding & dominant with arrogant assurance. ‘Rex’ means: ‘King’ in Latin. Does that define Sean Price? His fans would certainly say so!

The project is scheduled to drop next week, August 8th 2017 & will be released through Ruck Down Records & Duck Down Music Inc.

J-Live wants us to swim 9000 miles to reach his fundraising project

Fundraising Campaign

J-Live
The 9000 Miles Project
GoFundMe

The rapper J-Live has announced a fundraising project to finance his teaching campaign. In order to do this more effectively he needs to upgrade his studio. He aims to teach those of all ages, utilizing the art form of Hip Hop, all in order to enable people to empower themselves for the better. Those who donate to this fund will be rewarded with a gift. The more donated then the greater the reward.

Project details:
Peace! My name is J-Live. I’m an emcee, producer, DJ, and an educator. Born and raised in New York City. Currently residing here in Atlanta Georgia.

9000 Miles is my very first crowdfunding project. The purpose of this campaign is to enable and empower me to serve not just an artist, but as an educator.

My vision is to not only teach through my lyrical content and performances, but also through lectures, classes and hands on workshops for aspiring artists of all ages. The title “9000 Miles” and the concept, is actually an old song of mine.

It actually refers to the lessons of the 5% Nation and the N.O.I. The lesson is a poetic conversation about the [Trans] Atlantic Slave Trade. This notion of a captured people that want to return to their home but can’t swim 9000 miles across the ocean. This question of; Why didn’t their people come and get them? And this answer that, their people just didn’t know where they were. Metaphorically for me, it represents struggle, not just artistically but financially as well.

A lot of us, artists and otherwise, are treading water and surviving in sink or swim situations. So this 9000 Miles gofundme is my way of saying, “I’m here, and I’m asking for help.”

I’ve actually developed a curriculum to teach everything that I’ve learned through my experiences and travels as a hip hop artist; Writing, recording performing, cutting and scratching, blending, mixing, producing, beat making and then some.

The goal of this campaign is raise money to take this knowledge from my little home studio here, to the hip hop ed community around the world. Upgrading this studio will empower me to not only better produce and perform my own music, but help me to enable others to get the best of themselves creatively through hip hop.

The money will go towards repairing gear, updating and improving software, hardware, learning new technologies, so that I can apply them to my own music and have more to teach others, and of course some day to day living expenses. It will also allow me to outsource things I’ve been doing myself out of necessity and pay other creatives for their time energy and skill. Things like art direction, photography, videography, engineering, marketing, promotion, publicity, you name it.

And for fans of my music, a lot of whom affectionately refer to me as underrated, I can’t begin to express how much this help will enable me with the head space, the time, the resources, to not just make more music but to expose more people to my music.

For advocates and allies, these funds will help me to become not just a more successful independent hip hop artist, but to actually serve the community as a social entrepreneur.

I am thankful for any all support you’re willing to give. Be it monetary or social by sharing this with other people. I’ve set up rewards and incentives for various levels of support. From music in my digital catalogue, to signed CDs, to T shirts, to posters to online experiences and even some in person experiences for people here in Atlanta. But to show and prove the value of this project, I’ve actually begun producing a series of videos speaking on different points in the curriculum. I’ll be rolling them out as things progress.

One of the things I liked about gofunme is that projects don’t have expirations or time limits. Having said that, I’m actually setting a goal of 2 weeks for the 9000 Miles Project to reach the benchmark of $9000. As an added incentive to reach this goal in time, I’m pledging from the onset that monies exceeding $9000 will be split between this project and other like minded crowd funding campaigns from other people. Consider this my way of paying it forward. I’ll be back here frequently keeping you posted as things progress. I want to thank you in advance for your support. PEACE!

Rewarded donations start at $65.00 & upwards.

ROTGE:
Return Of The God Emcee UK Tour
Scheduled dates: April 2016

With his impending UK tour “ROTGE: Return Of The God Emcee” scheduled for next Spring, rapper & Street poet Kasim Allah along with Clay Borne aka 13Five (of Right & Exact Entertainment) have opted for a popular move, using a fundraising donation site to finance the tour.

The duo have opted for the popular “Go Fund Me” fund raising website to oversee proceedings. Depending upon the amount donated by individuals, a set thank you package will be issued, ranging from a thank you video (for a $5 donation) to a multi-item gift pack & opportunity to appear on the next project in some capacity (for a $500 or more donation).

By donating & also attending the events at the UK venues (if you are in that region of the world at the time) you are making a positive, important contribution to “Help Kasim Save the Music!”
(Rashad Unique)

Fundraiser mission statement:
For the first time ever, R & E Entertainment & Sandy’s House Entertainment invites you to join us for the “Return of the God Emcee Uk Tour”; an energetic, boombap rooted performance showcase spearheaded by Kasim Allah; New York emcee and longtime affiliate of Brand Nubian. The purpose of this tour is to initiate a much needed shift in hip hop by advocating a message of creativity & independence, eliminate cultural barriers; all while restoring artistry & ethics to an urban based genre of music that has lost its way. In short, we want to bring quality performance arts to quality alluring people; and Kasim Allah in the UK is just that.

We need your help to bring this vision of hip hop restoration into fruition. If you think a balance in the music played on the radio is needed, we need you. If you believe that music can change lives, we need you. Most importantly, if you want to see a father, community leader, and activist for cultural awareness take a message of peace overseas, we need you.

GA40 Birthday Bash & Release Party

GA40 UPDATE FLYER COLLAGE FINAL 2

GA40 Birthday Bash & Release Party
Voltage Lounge
421 N. 7th St. (Next door to The Electric Factory)
Philadelphia, PA 19123
Saturday May 16th 2015

Philadelphia Hip-Hop Legend Grand Agent brings out CAMP LO and DJ JAY SKI to celebrate his 40th Birthday and the release of a new album, AC HIP-HOP. Special guests performers are THE WURXS and LAST EMPEROR.

Philadelphia, PA. – On May 16th, 2015 – INTERWORLD and STONE PERSPECTIVE MEDIA will host The GA40 BIRTHDAY BASH & Release Party at Voltage Lounge, 421 N. 7th St. (Next door to The Electric Factory). Doors will open at 9pm with an open bar until 10, and $5 Drink Specials all night, courtesy of Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum . Rock Star Energy Drink will also be in the building with free giveaways. Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door.

The Show:

CAMP LO of “Luchini” fame will headline, performing that classic plus others and previewing music from their new album, Ragtimes Hightimes due out this summer on Nature Sounds. Don’t miss the 2009 collab “Minivan” alongside the man of the hour, Grand Agent.

GRAND AGENT will also debut music from his forthcoming free album AC Hip-Hop, a political tour de force cloaked in a slyly disarming soundscape.

Up and coming in a major way, Legendary Roots Crew underlings, THE WURXS are putting West Philly on the map all over again. The production, pen game, and work ethic of the duo, cousins Gee and Trons, has them on the fast track. They have a sound which Co-manager Spon Vicious describes as Slum Village meets Camp Lo. So for several reasons, it’s only right they be on the bill as well.

To experience the established sound of the LAST EMPEROR is a rare treat. He’s promised to do his ode-to-Hip-Hop saga “Secret Wars” in it’s entirety a capella.

If that isn’t enough, BOOM 107.9’s DJ JAY SKI and his partner DJ TACTICS, collectively known as PureElementz will be house DJs for the evening. Partygoers can expect to be treated to the best of Throwback and Contemporary Hip-Hop before and after the actual concert. And, everybody goes home with a GA40 Exclusive Mixtape put together by the duo.

In addition to being a star studded event, the upcoming web and TV series ONE LAST SHOT will be capturing footage for upcoming episodes.

There will be streaming audio of the event live at this link here
