@NodisMyMusic - Don't Sell it (Official Music Video)

As Hip Hop continues its global quest to inspire the world, Sidon "Nodis" Faris stands poised to inject his new brand of life blood into the heart of the game. This innovative 18 year old Hip Hop artist based out of the D.C. Metro, area embodies the vitality of his youth along with the universal spirit of his generation.
Nodis, derived the inspiration for his music while skateboarding the streets of Washington, DC and suburbs of Northern Virginia with his friends. At age twelve, in the early stages of a rough adolescence, Nodis began to actively write and by sixteen he began pursuing his dreams by releasing music videos via YouTube. Nodis` earliest exposure to music came from his mother`s extensive music collection, he cites Notorious B.I.G, 50 cents, The Cure, Tupac and Nas as some of his earliest musical influences.  A short time after releasing his first few videos, his singular style began to generate a buzz around the region. This not only gained Nodis the respect of his peers but also secured him access to perform at local concert venues. His most recent credits to date are opening up at Echo Stage one of D.C. largest concert venue for industry heavy hitters like Pusha T and The Game. His vision is to create distinctive music that resonates with his generation, while cultivating an expansive,  audience appeal.  Nodis and his collective Eleven11 aim to ignite an awakening through selective beats and lyrical content.
He's currently in the studio put on the finishing touches on his debut Mix tape titled, 22nd Century, working with the likes of D9 and Grammy award winning producer Blac Elvis. Keep your third eye open for Nodis.

@TheeRealKJ - Her Flowers

On October 23, 1984, Hip Hop would again gain an inspirational artist. The birth of Keon Johnson, simply known as K.J., would have an impact on lyricism as we know it. Born to Tawana McCoy and Bonnie Johnson in East Baltimore, K.J. would soon become one of Baltimore's prolific artist. K.J developed a vital skill at an early age which was transforming feelings and thoughts into words. In 1996, K.J. would begin to indulge in lyricism and through his personal situations and day to day life, K.J. is able to amass ideas that are relatable to the everyday listener and provides a voice for those same individuals. He would grow inspiration from TuPac, Common, Nasty Nassir Jones, Black Thought of the Roots, Talib Kweli. Snoop Dogg Method Man and Andre 3000 and emulate specific features from them all and turn them into a witty, creative and unique form of Hip Hop. Through music, K.J. believes that remedies are developed and that all problems are solved. Thus, the idea of  not "wanting the title of having the best line," but instead providing a channel for people like me and you to understand that we are not alone. However, on June 21, 2013, everything would change for K.J. prompting the release of his second mix tape titled " Just Thoughts 2: Life After Her"

The 1978ers @Slimthe78er @yUthe78er - "One Nine 7-T-8"

Music is an exchange of ideas. The 1978ers' (yU & Slimkat) album is something for those exhausted with the shuck and jive of pop culture, who believe in the purification rituals offered by hard snares, funky drum kicks, soul-coughing bass, and deeply rooted vibrations.
Today, The 1978ers release their first single, One-Nine-7-T-8 (free download), from the upcoming album, People of Today. The track is a manifesto of sorts, reminding us that the story of the music is told through rhythm and energy forged in the cultural soul of their birth year and developed ever since. Blake Gillespie, who interviewed the pair of musicians and debuted the song with IMPOSE this afternoon, writes "Slimkat produces like he’s the direct descendent of The Ummah bloodline, while yU’s a foreign native with a message of brotherhood in the DMV. 
It’s hard-boiled beats and raps laced with wisdom and virtue. The sort of record that you can sit with today and tomorrow, and any time you need to be reminded that we’re all in this together.

Team DAR - Genesis Album @TeamDAR @TrueGodImmortal @SpeedontheBeat @ShokusApollo @DirtyLungsAXEL

Team DAR is a DMV-based group consisting of True God, Speed on the Beat, Shokus Apollo, and JEFF AXEL (a/k/a Black Axel). Forged through a love of hip-hop, promoting change, and debaucherous situations, the slightly off-kilter group of artists defines a revolution, even through seemingly "ratchet" songs. The group delivers their own brand of sophisticated ignorance (thank you Kanye), most recently through tracks on Speed on the Beat's Death of the King album. And although they tend to not write their curses in cursive, the group does bring something sorely missing in music: the ability to be fun and funny without forgetting that music is a tool to create change.

Diamond District (yU, Oddisee, Uptown XO) - "Lost Cause" @MelloMusicGroup

Today the nation's largest weekly newspaper, The Village Voice, premiered Diamond District's second single Lost Cause from the groups upcoming album March On Washington.  The track is produced by rising star Oddisee and features the trio (yU, Oddisee, Uptown XO) rhyming some of their most impassioned bars to date. The three emcees bring wildly different styles to the track and offer listeners something very fresh.  Like brothers who've gone down different paths, yU, Oddisee, and Uptown XO all started in DC and have grown into their own unique solo careers.  Diamond District brings them together again as a testament to both their perfect chemistry, and their uniquness as individual elements in the musical world.

Cosmopolitan troubadour ODDISEE offers a worldly take on where he sits in modern society versus where he would have sat a century ago. Street scientist UPTOWN XO lays fire to a personal tale of struggle and survival.  And finally the humble king yU puts down one of the most righteous verses ever laid.  Enjoy.

@DoReMeMovement : Carey Fountain- "So Real" (Prod. Carey Fountain)

Bio: DoReMe is a collective of creative outcasts from around the world that all happened to meet in the unlikely city of Tuscaloosa, Alabama.  Over the course of their experimental collaboration, the team grew very close becoming much more like family.  With members from Wetumpka, Alabama; Israel; Woodbridge, Virginia; Germany and Florida; this group of multi-talented Rappers/Producers/Singer-songwriters all come together to create music that aims to provoke emotion and inspire one to explore their own beliefs and attain a clear vision of what one truthfully desires.  DoReMe does not believe in boundaries in music and refuse to conform to any standards placed upon the music they choose to create, staying true to their team mantra "Fuck Them, Do You."  By helping aid people in realizing the beauty and power each person has within themselves, DoReMe believes they can help to inspire people to be better than the person they were yesterday through eliminating the illusion of freedom our society jades us with.  As the team begins to emerge in the hip-hop game, they aim to stay true to themselves placing more importance on the reasoning behind why they create music instead of getting consumed by the material aspects of the industry so many artists fall victim to.
