Gaines was cast as the lead actor in the award-winning short film Kung Fu Bum (click to watch trailer), one of several visuals Gaines and 2 Hungry Bros are releasing to commemorate Rumspringa‘s release. “‘Super ID” is me introducing myself to the world as a solo artist,” says Gaines. “I’m letting the people know where I stand and what I represent in this convoluted hip hop arena. Working with 2 Hungry Bros was interesting because they’re a force to be reckoned with. Their love for, and understanding of music helped push me in the right direction.

Los Angeles-based rapper Brian Ashton presents the Muttjob Movies-directed video for “More, Money, Power”, his Matt Mega-produced new single. “More” features vocalist Lil Ms of Los Angeles funk/hip-hop collective The Milky Way. Born to an African-American father and a Canadian Jewish mother, Brian heads his own label, Palmside Entertainment, dedicated to exposing the talent in Palms, the Los Angeles neighborhood he calls home. “The song’s meaning relates to how the world operates”, Brian explains. “The ones with money get to reap the benefit of its power, such as more clothes and more girls. My meaning behind “More, Money, Power” is to make money doing what it is you were set on this earth to do. I know talented people working harder and making less than people that aren’t nearly as talented. I know extremely talented people that are struggling to get by on a daily basis. I’m tired of the struggle and those that abuse what power they have.”

He’s no stranger to hard work, having dropped over 3 projects recently and building a loyal following locally!

“I Got Dreams” is his latest offering produced by Key’s and recorded at Fresh MouF Productions’ Studio!

J-Fresh says :
“After reflecting on my accomplishment’s and goal’s I mainly created this song to motivate anybody with a Dream! In the recording I speak on my struggles growing up with nothing and what I had to do to survive in my hood, even though I had Goal’s and dream’s I wanted to accomplish . Everyone has dreams (especially College student’s) but between most people’s hectic schedule, financial situation or just life, I noticed a lot of people that were just waiting on, postponing or stopping there dream’s all together. That’s where I come in to Re-motivate , refocus and redeem a person’s confidence to restart or resume the progress of their dream’s through this song.”

More info on J-Fresh :
Performing his break-through hit “Stackz Out” (dedicated to Madame C.J Walker) as one of the 1st African American Males to have a music performance at his high school, J-Fresh is no stranger to hard work.

With a demo tape (The Mass. Affect), mixtape (Bad Habitz MixTape V.1) and his 2nd album (I am L.Y.R.I.C’s) recorded J-Fresh feels he still has a lot more to prove and is ready to go “ALL IN”.

Showing dedication, a metaphorical laid-back style and a sound that is rigid and unique, this artist’s lyrics alone can make Buzz Lightyear give up his first name! J-Fresh is not signed and has got his foot in the door by doing all promoting, distributing and recording himself on behalf of FRESH MOUF PRODUCTIONs.

Listen to every word he says because with influences from Busta rhymes and Method man to Andre 3000 and Master P, I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Hip-Hop is BACK!

Cinematic Music Group/RED Set To Release JOEY BADA$$ “Waves” Single

Joey Bada$$ Emerges as Artist To Watch in 2013:

“…the high school senior has been tapped as one of the premiere MCs to emerge from the recent wellspring of hip-hop hopefuls pouring our of the greater New York City area.” – Interview Magazine

“The precocious 17-year old MC…has many critics hyping him as New York hip hop’s last hope, the heir apparent to lyrical giants like Nas and Big L” – XXL Magazine

“Joey conjures a sepia-toned, three-dimensional world, balanced between youthful exuberance and unsettling adult poise.”- Pitchfork

Joey Bada$$, a member of the burgeoning New York City-based rap crew Pro Era, is set to digitally release his song, “Waves”. An ode to teenage aspiration, “Waves”- one of the most uplifting singles from his critically-acclaimed mixtape 1999- has had fans and music critics across the globe talking about the 17-year-old MC’s uncanny talent and meaningful subject matter. 1999 was released earlier this year as a free download and fan response was immediate: without any promotion, by word-of-mouth the “Waves” video went into heavy rotation at MTV2; The New York Times described 1999 as, “casual in presentation but complex in execution, full of offhand assonance that’s hypnotic”; and the mixtape earned a BET Hip Hop Award nomination catapulting Joey to national attention.

In early November, Joey Bada$$ performed the song on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Joey Bada$$ recently inked an innovative deal with Cinematic Music Group/Creative Control distributed by RED Distribution.

With a reworked version of the sample originally featured in the mixtape version of the song, this release offers existing fans a new look at the track while introducing Joey Bada$$ to a whole new audience. In addition, the special release will include “Enter The Void”, a brand new song from Joey produced by Lee Bannon with a feature from TDE’s Ab-Soul. The two MCs trade bars of wisdom beyond their years over a slow soulful loop, offering their take on perceptive reality and inviting the listener into a spiritual journey.

The digital release is an opportunity to introduce new listeners to Joey Bada$$ and his meaningful brand of Pro Era hip hop and for those that are already fans to experience his riveting collaboration with Ab-Soul. The singles can be bought together as a bonus for $1.29 per song or for $1.99 for both tracks (including the “Waves” video exclusively on iTunes)

Joey Bada$$ has been drumming up serious excitement and discussions about his place in New York rap lore, drawing regular comparisons to greats like Nas, Biggie, and Big L. With his Pro Era crew, comprised of already buzzing Capital STEEZ, CJ Fly, Kirk Knight, and producer Chuck Strangers, Joey is leading one of the most compelling cultural movements to come out of NYC today.”If 2012 is Pro Era’s branding year, expect the future to only be brighter for a crew who intend to make the mecca of Hip-Hop their official stomping grounds,”said The Source in a recent feature about Pro Era.

Joey and Pro Era will be headlining New York’s Hot 97’s “Who’s Next” concert at SOB’s on November 20th and are gearing up for their first European tour with already sold out shows in all cities including London and Paris. In the spirit of staying true to their fanbase, Pro Era will release their next free tape on December 21st.
