Eighteen year old DMV MC Sir E.U (@SirEUthegr8) releases his first full length album, the follow up to FXCK, "Hippopotamus," through DMV indie label The CarryOut Productions (www.TheCarryOut.net). "Hippopotamus" combines raw lyricism with real life tales of adolescence and youthful angst. The beats fuse old school breaks and boom bap drums with slowed down jazz and soul samples. Over the last year Sir E.U and his Kool Klux comrades have shared the stage with artists such as 9th Wonder, Tanya Morgan, Thee Tom Hardy, Rhapsody, Nickelus F, Fresh Daily, Phil Ade & more.

Santa Clause won’t be the only unk giving out gifts this Christmas! Fresh off the release of his recent mixtape, #bongski, Dugee F. Buller is back, giving us plenty of holiday cheer or jeer to last through to the New Year. Scheduled for Dec. 24, “on the night before Christmas,” Dugee will drop his underground album ‘bong! thee album.’ This “stocking stuffer” is a collection of Dugee’s most opinionated work to date, so if you love his music, get ready to have a nearly all-in-one package. Behind the production boards are two familiar “beatsmiths” of Buller’s sound, Lil boy fresh and Treez. They help craft an album that sheds more light on Dugee to his listeners, and what goes on in his unique mind. Bong!

Noyeek The Grizzly Bear (Grizz, of The Package) has dropped a powerful new song about his marital difficulties that will move anybody who has been through a tough time in a relationship. Single father Theory put together an amazing musical backdrop for this song and provided a haunting hook. The City Paper has shown this song some love by featuring it, so please take a second to listen and leave a comment!
Kicks for Kids v5:Charity Shoe Drive 2011presented bythe Sneaker Suite x Your City My City (Shoe City) x Reebok x Everyday Lavan Photography x Young & Reckless
Join us Sunday, December 18th as we host our fifth annual Kicks For Kids Charity Shoe Drive event! The Kicks for Kids shoe drive program is a collaborative community effort to help support children less fortunate or in need in the DC Metropolitan area by way of sneakers! There are plenty of holiday coat drives, toy drives and can food drives that brings positive holiday cheer, but very rarely do you see an initiative that focuses on our feet. Last year, your raised donations purchased over 400 pairs of new kids sneakers that were later donated to the Children's National Medical Center (200 pairs), So Others Might Eat (S.O.M.E.) Organization (100 pairs) & R&B Star Mya's Art & Tech Foundation (100 pairs). This year, we are partnering with the Children's National Medical Center again with plans to provide for youth spending their Christmas holiday in the hospital. In addition, we will donate sneakers to the National Children's Center, with facilities in SE, DC & NE, DC, whose mission is to provide a lifetime of opportunities for people in our community with developmental disabilities to live full, meaningful and productive lives.------------------------------
