R & E Entertainment & Sandy’s House Entertainment presents:
Kasim Allah
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!”

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.

Kasim Allah
Return Of The God Emcee UK Tour

Various venues across the United Kingdom will play host to Kasim as headline artist. Support will be provided by acts from both sides of the Atlantic, with the list still being added to.

This is truly the “Return Of The God Emcee” to the UK as he has previously appeared at The Drum Arts Center in Birmingham, West Midlands. The tour itself has been arranged by Clay Borne aka 13Five of Right & Exact Entertainment, a former recording artist himself now acting in a management capacity.

This scheduled set of appearances will allow Kasim Allah to spread his music to a wider audience, as well as aid in promoting his latest album “Living Mathematics” which has just been reissued & remastered.

More details, along with full confirmation of venues & support acts will be announced when available.

GA40 Birthday Bash & Release Party


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

Skyzoo is making “Music For My Friends”


Music For My Friends
First Generation Rich/Empire
Scheduled release date: June 23rd 2015

Brooklyn rapper Skyzoo is releasing his latest album “Music For My Friends” on June 23rd. This will be followed by an album release show on June 27th at the Blue Note Jazz Club in New York.

In his own words Skyzoo has given a preview of what to expect with the album:
“For us growing up, the motto was ‘All Day, Always.’ Whatever we stood for or stood on, that was the theme. Wanting and believing in the things we saw early on intrigued us more than they should have at that age. Imagine being 13, 14 years old, falling in love with things like Suicide Doors, not knowing the depths of to which they became, but learning such on the fly, those became The Moments That Matter. It pushed us to zero in on Luxury, in an abundance at that, with only the road as to which we acquire it separating our attempts, but out intents were all parallel.

Being overly observant prematurely taught us that Everything’s For Sale, and depending on how we interpreted that, some of us would go to sleep at night and See A Key, or a Ki’, depending on how you slept. However those eight hours would translate, it only drove home what we overheard right in front of us; Money Makes Us Happy, ‘It’s as simple as that’ we would hear on repeat. So the adoration of those Playing Favorites only enhanced what we wanted and why we wanted so much, so fast. You get the right look on the right day with the right on lookers looking on and you can open up a Meadow Of Trust. A crowd full of Women Who Can Cook, hopefully designed like the women who groomed us at home, but realistically resembling the ones who may have never spoken to us had we not got ahold of what we set out to get. So it’s worth it, right? Maturing to learn that nothing beats Civilized Leisure, and all the time it took to figure that out? Simply chalk it up to The Experience, one that should never leave us no matter how far we may eventually be removed from it. Times when those closest to you are forced to grow up fast, and you’re forced to grow up faster with them, it eerily mirrors something you see on TV, like Asking Bodie For A Package, how the order comes from home and your day ones are thrown into the fire, and you stand tall with them thinking ‘nah, it can’t just burn forever.’

So you sweat it out with them. You relate and understand and join in but feel like you have a guilty, unfair upper hand, because even though it’s never been easy for you, you can still attempt to sleep somewhat decently, saying to yourself ‘my pops ain’t never leave and my moms did every scene’. A blueprint and some ‘know how, some good cooked food and some awareness leads to you thinking these conflicting, guilt inspired feelings are the Things I Should’ve Told My Friends. When it’s all said and done, when the faces change and the desires become more expensive and the next in line become the next in line, when the bloodied badge unjustly wins and the lights begin to flicker and then dim, you realize maybe it was all just a Sweet Pursuit. All of it, nothing more, nothing less. And the sounds it leaves in the memories it created slowly becomes Music For My Friends.” -Skyler (13 year old lyricist, graffiti writer, playground point guard, quarter water aficionado, and Mortal Kombat champ, preferably the Sega Genesis version)”
