Kxng Crooked | Don't Close Your Eyes (Ashamed) | Music Video

Kxng Crooked speaks on his darkest moments, including a battle with depression and more in the visuals for the somber track, "Don't Close Your Eyes (Ashamed.)"

A rough cut of the single was released back in May and was featured on Tidal Rising, an ongoing list of buzz worthy tracks from Jay Z's streaming service.

Since then, the track has been flipped with additional vocals for Morgan Mccrae and production from Jonathan Hay and Ajami. Kxng, formerly known as Crooked I, touches on suicide and anxiety, with Truth Ali dropping bars about his own personal issues of depression.

Check out the visuals below.

Arcani | Alone

With time narrowing down for the release of Arcani's "Noah's Ark" Mixtape. We did not expect to get any more new music, to my surprise I opened my email this morning to a brand new premier from Midwest artist "Arcani" entitled "Alone". One of my personal favorites. Arcani floats over a hazy temple track similar to "Just Another Day". with a memorizing hook echoing "I Was Tweak'n".

Checkout this dope track above, and cop a pack of Noah's Ark rolling papers in time for his mix tape NOAHS ARK:

Mannie Fresh | Rhythm Roulette | Live From The Sprite Corner

Rhythm Roulette is back with four brand new episodes live from The Sprite Corner in New York City. Mannie Fresh, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Exile, and Just Blaze treated fans to an exclusive experience, inviting them to watch as they took our Rhythm Roulette challenge live, followed by an in-depth Q&A session hosted by Young Guru.

Kicking things off is the Louisiana legend Mannie Fresh, who, as Young Guru pointed out, might just be the most prolific producer in hip hop history. Coincidentally, Mannie humbly confirmed that fact by stating that he recently received a call from someone at BMI who was perplexed after discovering he had over 600 published works.

After skimming through his three randomly selected records, Mannie had no problem banging out three quick flips that spoke to his roots in New Orleans bounce, as well as the Dirty South turn-up he helped pioneer. Mr. Fresh reminded the crowd he opts for live instrumentation instead of sampling, but he also isn’t one to shy away from a challenge. Afterwards, Mannie treated us to an impromptu listening session featuring music he’s working on with Mos Def and Lil Wayne. We’d love for you to hear those tracks, but we promised to keep them under wraps until he’s ready to drop ’em.

Stay tuned for more episode of Rhythm Roulette from The Sprite Corner, featuring George Anne Muldrow, Exile, and Just Blaze. In the meantime, hit the video player up top to watch the legendary Mannie Fresh do his thing.

Athony Nardolillo is a man on a mission. He is an actor, director….and fellow salsero!

Anthony NardolilloHe has produced a variety of latin dance related projects including the critically acclaimed short film, Mano.

Please see Anthony’s message below in how you can support the film!

Just want to ask if I can get your support on what hopefully will be next year’s secret film success. We are now on our way to being the highest funded Latino film ever on Kickstarter. I really need you if possible to support me on this even if only a few dollars. We only get this if we reach our goal. I’ve been at this 9 years and this final push will get this movie made. I know you have other priorities but if you could just take two minutes and pledge, we only receive the money if we reach our goal.

Visit the Kickstarter link below to pledge and support one of our fellow dancers!

IshDARR | Somebodies (Prod. Canis Major)

In my opinion very few now care about journalism. The ones that do, I understand. Also understand this, this blog is just something I added to my day to day daily routine. It was in a sense to share music and things I love. Art, basketball, skate boarding, etc.

The time we take out of our lives to do this is strictly for the love and appreciation of what we love and like. Its also a way of working smarter not harder. Knowing your fan base and others can truly benefit the artists. Understand that us reviewing and writing about each and every post majority of the time is time consuming. We appreciate the views and comments about the blog in each and every way.

With that being said, I give IshDARR a listen, subscribe, follow, share or comment!

"[This album] is much more musical than anything I've made in the past," says ProbCause. "It combines my favorite parts of all my favorite genres. I really like the idea of weaving my voice between jazzy trumpets, classical violins, digital drums and making it all fit together somehow. I also produced, sang, rapped, wrote and did all the artwork for the project, so I feel like it's even more hands on than anything I've done in the past."
