After several leaks I’m proud to finally present to you all Duality’s “VFS (View From The Stoop).” The Tape features Double up Artist and label mate K.Sparks, Rhymesayers artist, Grieves and Budo, and was mixed by DJ Automatic of Shadyville DJ’s. It also features Production from Budo, Big Drew, and JD of Duality. This is one of four Street albums that Duality will put out this year not only to expose people to the music of Duality but to raise awareness about the Program I.C.C.O. (Inner Child Community Outreach, a Non Profit Organization Duality is a member of), are running in Communities with youth to inspire them through music & the arts to reach their goals. The main project of this organization at this time is to raise money for an after school Arts Program to be run in NY in an under served community. So Duality is giving away these Mixtapes in the hope that People will Donate to the Cause. Hit the link, download, and donate.
Earlier this year the Fear of Falling EP was presented, released, and served as an introduction to the southern lyricist known as Nick Pratt. His overt lyricism and candor has helped him build a substantial buzz, placements on heavily promoted shows, and online press. In efforts to build off of his success, Nick Pratt returns with a solid second EP, “The New Cool.” Nick focuses on showing his growth as an individual and artist while maintaining his illustrious bravado.
In my opinion, Trinity is one of the best female MC’s out there. She sh*ts on a lot of these male MC’s in the game.

After releasing several leaks including the lead track Hope, the entire mixtape is available for listen and download as of 1-14-2011. The mixtape is titled The Valley in representation of Trinitys’career as a hip hop artist. The Valley is a term used to describe a low point but in actuality represents a place of personal growth.

Such as a cover of Lupe Fiascos ’Beaming’ beat entitled Snowball Effect. Also, the engineering credit for the mixtape goes to Mulatto Patriot. Enjoy & expect more music from Trinity in 2011!

It was just a month ago that Purpose, the eminently dope producer and founder of the notorious Tragic Allies crew, continued his rise from crime-infested streets of Lynn, Massachusetts to the top of the hip-hop food chain with the release of his aptly-titled “Better Than Your Album”.

After a few months and a few leaks Ryan and I have finally decided to release to everyone his “War Journalz” EP. Believe me when I say this eight track EP will leave you hungry for more. I myself am left hungry for more after every single time I hear new material from Ryan.

“I will only continue with my onslaught of great YNMD sponsored mixtapes. This time I bring you a brand new project from my FSM fam. The FSM label consists of talented up and comers such as Jones Andrews, Young Rush, The Mecca Of Rhymes, and Hendrix Law. You guys already know all about JA so now I suggest you get firmly acquainted with the other three cats mentioned because they will be making mad noise, I guarantee it. Anyways, YNMD and the FSM fam have been connected for some time now so they felt it was only right to link up with yours truly along with HailMegatron to bring you guys what is “First In Flight, Last to Land.” As you already know I only bring you the best so expect nothing but greatness once you hit download.
“After receiving great feedback from the first three leaks, my third official project, Mike Murder drops today, which is the one year anniversary of my debut album, Sunday Drive with Phys Edison. Mike Murder features 10 tracks, all rhymes, no hooks. I wanted to release some material that focused strictly on the rhymes, patterns and punchlines. My first two projects, Sunday Drive and Love Potion were much more laid back and concept heavy so, I wanted to give people a taste of another side of my writing and my music. I got some great sponsors to jump on board for the project who have been supportive since the beginning. DJBooth.net, Ballerstatus.com, YNotMyDream.net, RefinedHype.com and PMG Media all lended their brands to help release and promote the project. The photos for the artwork were taken by Dakota Blue Harper and The artwork was done by Heath O’Campo, both who worked together on Sunday Drive. Please listen, download, comment and share. I appreciate all the support and am looking forward to hearing everyone’s feedback.”
