Myka 9 New Solo-LP, “Mykology,” To Be Released On 10.3.2011 On SoundVise Records, New Freestyle Fellowship Reunion LP To Be Released This Fall!

“To say that Freestyle Fellowship significantly influenced West Coast hiphop is like saying that Jesus was a pivotal figure in Christianity.” –Pitchfork

Freestyle Fellowship will be reuniting for the first-time in over a decade and releasing a new LP, The Promise, on Decon Records this fall.  Yet, before the Freestyle Fellowship reunion project surfaces, Myka 9 will release his fifth solo-LP, Mykology, on 10/3/11 on SoundVise Records.  Produced by Organized Elements and Myka 9 himself, it’s full of the meticulous and intelligent rhymes that Myka has become so revered for.  Mykology’s first teaser “I Must Cross,” finds Myka poignantly dissecting the often-debated immigration crisis from a human rights perspective. The projects lead-single “Oh Yeah…Alright” finds Myka trading verses with Freestyle Fellowship member Aceyalone along with Casual, Sunspot Jonz & Kirby Dominant.

Violence Begets Violence Ushers In A New Age For JMT As Their Seventh Studio-LP Drops On 10-25-2011

For more than fifteen years, the name Jedi Mind Tricks has become synonymous with raw, gritty underground hip-hop.  From their debut album, The Psycho-social, in 1996 to their seminal sophomore release, Violent By Design, to their musical expansion heard on Servants and Heaven, Kings in Hell, JMT has made an indelible impression on the independent music scene (with over 400K units sold) while arguably forging its own subgenre of rap.  Led by the fiery vocals of controversial front man, Vinnie Paz (who also released a critically acclaimed solo-LP, Season Of The Assassin in 2010 which featured the underground smash “Street Wars” f/Clipse & Block McCloud and also guest appearances from Paul Wall, Freeway and Beanie Sigel), and his venerable rhyme partner, Jus Allah, the group has built one of the most critically-acclaimed and commercially-successful careers in independent music.

In the past, I have written briefly about the Tea partybut only to note the irrational nature of its body politic.I speculated that such a brief narrative was needed and nothing more. Honestly, as a man of African descent, I don’t desire to give them attention, since it appears it is all they want. But my confederates seems to be preoccupied with them as if they matter, when they really don’t, seeing it was our in action at the poll rather than their substance that got us stuck with this congress.

The way I see it, this is nothing new. Many of us have no knowledge of history, and barely recall Martin King Jr.let alone the Nativistor John Birch Society. The Tea party, if anything, is just another fringe extremist group coopting politics for they lack mirrors to look themselves in the eye. The John Birch Society was founded by Robert Welchin 1958. It was named after Captain John Birch, who during his military operations in China, was killed by Chinese communists on 25th August, 1945. Read more…
