Stream Dyme-A-Duzin HIP HOPE Album NOW!

On the heels of successful promotional campaigning, Dyme-A-Duzin releases his highly anticipated new album HIP HOPE today. How many of you remember when hip hop was ​fun? Judging from the tracks Dyme let us in on early this year, his creative process captures all the things we love about hip hop music. From production to storytelling, rhyme patterns, and metaphors, Dyme embraces the very art of hip hop.
As the birth place of hip hop, New York has a way of passing that powerful energy to its' artists. With a solid spiritual upbringing, and years of studying the art, Dyme-A-Duzin has become quite the craftsman in composing, and translating amazing hip hop energy. Dyme's HIP HOPE movement holds promise for the future of hip hop culture. Providing a well balanced blend of past, present​, and mainstream​ ​hip hop vibes, the HIP HOPE album is a noteworthy representation of really good New York music. The album's cover presents a symbol of hope. It shows Dyme walking of a cliff holding a gold baloon. Dyme breaks down the meaning in a recent interview with

That guy knows what he’s doing. He’s walking off the cliff, head straight up with the gold balloon in his hand, and he knows that he’s about to soar. That’s what I plan to do – soar, take off.

Video: @YVAndHollywood - "Work" featuring @iamLoadedLux (OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO)

YV & Hollywood, the brother duo from Boston, just dropped this new video "Work". This is a hit! It even has a feature from Loaded Lux in it. 
“My brother and I are young but we've seen a lot. Our music is made to take people on a journey with us through the highs and the lows. We know they’re going through it too. That connection with the people is why we do it” explains Hollywood.
The bright future ahead of YV & Hollywood wasn't always as clear as it is today. Growing up homeless and bouncing around New York City’s gritty shelter system. “I remember some nights where me, my brothers and mother would sleep on a park bench. Those days are long gone”, says YV, “but we will never forget them. It made us stronger and hungry for success. That’s why we put our heart and soul in every song we do”.

These unique siblings have been doing it since their pre-teen years. From childhood the brothers would be called on frequently to entertain at family functions. As they grew into adolescents family fun time turned into serious business when an older cousin heard them and decided to partner with them to form Fame & Fortune Entertainment.

YV & Hollywood are going all out in their mission to bring good music to the world. Using a combination of powerful melodies and truthful lyrics New York City born, New England based Hip Hop/R&B duo have been building a fan base up and down the East Coast. While both the brothers sing, Hollywood handles the majority of the vocals with YV carefully crafting the bars. After a string of mixtape appearances and videos, they are starting to catch the ears of fans and the industry alike.

Skrilla (@skrillababy17) - The Takeova V3: The Break Thru

Skrilla peels off a couple of high energy anthems right off the top on his latest installment of The Takeova mixtape series. "I Want It All" and "Going In" showcase Skrilla's hunger, skill, and potential market impact. By the time you make it to track 8, it's clear that Skrilla takes the construction of his songs seriously. What I mean by that is anybody can rap but not everyone can compose and arrange their rhymes in a way that listeners experience. Gliding around the vocals of R&B sensation Lavonte the Singer effortlessly,  Skrilla lays 14 solid indications that he's a notable contender.

MAX (@Maxgschneider) & @PhonyPpl "New York State of Mind"

MAX and Phony Ppl take on the Billy Joel classic, "New York State of Mind" and permanently nail it! I've been sitting on this post about a week now waiting for the right words to do it justice. When Tim Mogul sent it, I couldn't just post it empty, or throw up any old description because I really, with my entire being want you guys to check it out. After getting another piece of fine art from Mr Tim that also heavily emitted that NY energy, it came to me. I can't ask all of you to listen or watch this; not if you've been to New York. This one some of you gotta feel, experience even... Yes, it's that dope! The band assembles playfully, on a rooftop showcasing their youthful energy; but bringing every ounce of the vocal maturity necessary to carry and make you inhale this cover. Fine job these gentlemen did. Fine job.

The SAY MAX EP is available now on iTunes and Spotify.

Rapper @thegame Mike Brown Dedication Ft. @iamdiddy @ItsaPROBLEM & More

Rapper The Game influences mainstream to join the movement for justice in the violent murder of Ferguson high school graduate Mike Brown. The Game, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Diddy, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Currensy, Problem, King Pharaoh & TGT came together for the track "Don't Shoot," and I am both appreciative, and hopeful that their efforts will continue. Public opinion has barked back some pretty nasty comments that I feel are totally inappropriate. This is a start in the right direction and we should give these artists credit for speaking up. This constant division is how they can continuously get away with infringing upon our human rights. The song is available on iTunes here with proceeds going to the ‘Justice For Mike Brown’ charity
