"The Realization" by Pete Alexander

I first heard of Pete when a friend had posted "The Question" on Facebook last year. I was blown away by the vlog, which led me to look further more into his works and also asking for an intern position for my cousin. Later on, Pete was nice enough to allow us to shoot a wedding together (click here to see). It came out dope which also led to a more solid relationship. It's been a pleasure to know and work with such a great mentor. Check out his latest vlog, "The Realization". It's an honor to have my name in the credits, having heard about 6 of my beats in the video and a cameo! Enjoy!

C + "Do What You Want"

Sacramento's best hands down. Get familiar! "Do What You Want" is from C Plus' latest work "All C.I.T.Y" which is now available digitally for download at his website www.thirdletta.com

I had the privilege to preview the album thoroughly this weekend and was pleased to hear how cohesive the album as a whole it was. Being that it was 20 some tracks deep, you would think that it would be too much. BUT, if your a fan of good music and production you won't find yourself short changed. C Plus is definitely articulate and vivid with his word play.

"I CAN'T LEAVE SAC ALONE THE SCENE NEEDS ME" - C+ (...you damn right!)

Hopie "Be A Lady" (prod. 6Fingers)

"Be A Loady" is from Dulce Vita which will be available online @ www.hopiespitshard.com and in stores April 26, 2011. I had the pleasure to listen to the album early as well and if I haven't already gave my review in the past post, it's a creative and conceptual album produced entirely by Drums & Ammo producer, 6 Fingers. Put these 2 crazy out the box thinkers together and trust, they'll blow yo mind. Enjoy!

SIYA "I'm Gone" dir. @oneSHOTmike

Bed-Stuy Brooklyn is where it all began for the young MC by the name of SIYA. Born 1987 this aspiring superstar was raised by her Grandmother in the Eleanor Roosevelt housing projects in Brooklyn which happens to be one of the roughest housing projects of the five boroughs. ...read more

When I heard this all I can do was shake my head. You know, that shake when you know its undeniable. Yo' Siya is the truth. I ain't never felt that way about a female rapper since I heard Lauryn Hill spit. Ok ok, I said too much. So, without further a due, SIYA!

If I had to describe this particular session in one word, that word would be "growth!" I feel that this record put a huge stamp on what me and Nio are capable of as The Gifted Music Group.

Lunice "Get Her High" feat. ST 2 Lettaz & DaVinci

The good folks over at Southern Hospitality have been holding down quality rappers from down South and out in the Bay Area for some time, so it's only fitting that their latest orchestration features none other than critically acclaimed rap heavyweights DaVinci, repping San Francisco, alongside ST 2 Lettaz, one half of Huntsville, Alabama duo G-Side. Topping things off, Montreal's producer/DJ Lunice provides the beat, only his second time working under the auspices of hip-hop, and based on the results it sounds like he should continue his forays into the genre. -Audible Treats

Nio Tha Gift "Rebel With A Cause"

Being apart of SNF (Succeed Never Fail) has been an incredible experience. Nio Tha Gift, the 23 year old Richmond raised emcee has definitely earned his stripes at an early stage in his career and by far has one of the most polished deliveries I've recorded in my studio. Lately we've worked on numerous records together and been planning his next release, "Rebel With A Cause." Aside from the music the crew and I are strategically planning the next few steps. To get things started we present to you our modernized version of the 1955 James Dean classic "Rebel Without A Cause." Spread the word!

EASKI speaks on commitment

There is a lot of truth in what Easki is about to drop on you. You need to watch this and listen on how he compares how the rap game in the Bay Area went from an all time high to a record breaking low. I couldn't agree with him more about how a lot of artist young and old take advantage of technology and the ease of making music and throw the whole organic and passion out the window. It is way too easy to make music these days and all I ask, coming from an artist myself who strives to pay rent to upkeep a recording studio, is that you young artist out there need to pay close attention to your craft and sound and pay your engineers and producers.

THE JEALOUS GUYS "BRAINWASHED BY LONDON"

24KMC is proud to present another video from Frisco’s iLLEST The Jealous Guys produced by Clams Casino. Shot and edited by Trevor Traynor, Executive Produced by Chasen Paper, the gothic nature of the city juxtaposed against Ayinde & BizYCasa’s dead eyed delivery blends perfectly into the night. This was a bare bones shoot…if you check out the Behind The Scenes you won’t see anything hollywood in this shit. Just basements and some original Frisco gangstas.
