Judah Gives you...... @redheadpg - You're Still A Racist (Joyner Lucas Freestyle)


Stephen Redhead releases rebuttal to new controversial record

Redhead lends his voice to a stance for the Black community

After the release of the controversial song "I'm Not Racist" by rapper Joyner Lucas, a lot of mixed reviews were voiced by the public about the content of the record. To most concern was the seemingly limited perspective of the Black character as he was being chastised by his white counterpart about his position in American society. Stephen Redhead came across the song after hearing criticisms, and decided to have fun by penning a verse to finish the job that he felt Joyner left unfinished. Redhead will appear at Ivy City Smokehouse in Washington, DC on Thursday, December 7th at 8PM as he opens for comedian Chico Bean from Wild N Out.

DB Bantino is hitting his stride during a major year in his career. After working with hip-hop’s finest like French MontanaD.R.A.MBone Thugs, and Boosie Badazz, the singer/songwriter from Washington D.C. finally got his international shine when his single with Zoey Dollaz, “Bad Tings,” took over the national airwaves, and sparked a reggae remix of the single — straight out of the Caribbean — from Junior Reid. Now more than ever, DB is ready to cross the finish line to win on his own.

DB is doing the most to prepare us for his solo project 5 In The Valley. He linked with video director Edgar Esteves, who also crafted videos with G-EazyRuss, and G4$HI, for his first visual off the project, “Low.” Well before the threat of hurricane season, DB escaped to the islands to shield his new love from the public eye.

Look out for DB Bantino’s project 5 In The Valley coming soon, and watch the world premiere of his new video “Low” below. (Words by Tony Centeno)

Repping for his city with his fiery, energetic flow, Lightshow is the next up in the Nation's Capitol. Hanging out of his sunroof in a ride around the city, Lightshow finds his inner Ocean's 11 in "Shoot For The Stars," his latest video. In the video, Lightshow takes his crew on a crime spree, robbing hideaways and pulling heists in one eventful late night. Premiered by The FADER, "Shoot For The Stars" is an aspirational highlight from Kalorama Heights, Lightshow's new album, named after the posh DC neighborhood currently home to the Obamas. Featuring appearances from Big Shaad and YFN Lucci, who guests on the Karen Civil-premiered banger "No Info," the album is an inspiring adrenaline rush, detailing Lightshow's quest to rise from nothing to one of the city's elite. An appealing showcase of Lightshow's creative flows and stratospheric energy level, Kalorama Heights is an ideal introduction to Lightshow and will propel him to the next step on the ladder to stardom.

Born and raised in Washington DC, more specifically 10th Place Southeast in Congress Heights, Lightshow started rapping at 11-years-old, recording his rhymes over the instrumental outros of his favorite hip-hop tracks. As a teenager, Lightshow made his bones as a recording engineer, assisting in recording sessions for DC rappers such as Shy Glizzy and Wale. It was Wale who gave Lightshow his first break, recruiting him to appear on "Georgetown Press," a track from Wale's 2012 mixtape Folarin. After his Wale feature, Lightshow started to gain traction as a rapper outside of the DMV, recording several mixtapes including The Way I See It, hosted by DJ Khaled. Last year, Lightshow released Life Sentence 3, which featured an appearance from A$AP Ant and boasted "Need A Lighter," Lightshow's collaboration with 21 Savage, which earned over 7 million streams on Spotify. LightShow looks to continue his upward trajectory with Kalorama Heights. “I don’t gotta go to Beverly Hills, I can be right in my city,” said Lightshow in a recent interview with The Washington Post. “If it’s good enough for Obama, it’s good enough for me.”

Judah Gives You ............. @AREOHDMUSIC - Left at the light prod. by Nguyen Duyanh


Jahrod Coates (also known as are.oh.d) is a singer/songwriter from the DMV area. He was born in San Diego, CA and raised in PG County, MD a small county right outside Washington, D.C. where he spent most of his childhood and teenage years. Jahrod started singing at the young age of 1. “I’ve been singing ever since I could talk,” are.oh.d expressed, “Singing is all I know, I can't and won’t do nothing else but sing. Whenever I get the chance I sing!” He spent most of his childhood singing in the church choir and various groups. “Mom’s made sure I was in church." It wasn't until the age of 21 when Jahrod wrote his very first song entitled, “Steady Switchin.” From there, he continued his music career writing, producing, and recording. His newest track "Left at the Light" is the first single from his upcoming EP entitled "Innuendos" set to release later this year. The track is about replenishing his relationship that has fallen by the wayside over the past years. It starts off as him leaving his girlfriend because of his wrongdoings. But as the song progresses he realizes the love he has for her overpowers his faults and decides to come back and make it right.

Judah Gives you..... @FootwerkBand - Retrograde [VIDEO] @QuinelleHolder


"Retrograde," the title track single from Footwerk’s forthcoming EP, is the result of a spontaneous trip to Black Rock Desert's annual Burning Man celebration in Nevada. Just before hitting the road from his hometown of DC, the band's lead vocalist, Kyle meets a gypsy princess who would accompany him on a cross-country tour bus ride in search of the adult carnival. While in route, the pair were joined by members of the unnamed traveler's hippie tribe. Upon arriving at the dream-like destination, the gorgeous gypsy kept Kyle mellow in the chaos of chasing art cars hosted by Skrillex or Diplo and awkward conversations in group showers. The pursuit of the elusive wanderer culminated at the ritual burning of 'the man', where she told Kyle, "Mercury is in Retrograde" while raving about the universe. It was that night, he wrote "Retrograde" for his free-spirited love interests.

Judah Gives you..... ATCQ's Industry Rule #4080 Gets An Anime Adaptation w/ "The Indies" (2017) [@DJTonyDrake @BlueGeekMusic ]







In 1991, A Tribe Called Quest released 'The Low End Theory.' Though the RIAA certified platinum album boasted standout records like "Jazz (We've Got)", and "Scenario," it was the project's anti-label lead single "Check The Rhime" that took the LP to the next level by flagrantly calling out music executives for their unethical business practices. Unfortunately, 25 years later "record company people are still shady" and don't show any signs of turning over a new leaf.

Looking to showcase the harsh realities of the music and entertainment industry in a creative yet captivating way, Baltimore resident DJ Tony Drake is creating a 2D animated series appropriately titled "The Indies." The pilot episode, produced as a short, will give viewers a glimpse of what they can expect from the Anime & Hip-Hop infused cartoon ahead of its television debut, while proving to Hollywood it can be a major player alongside popular shows of the same caliber. An original Hip-Hop score, recorded at Grammy award winning House Studios DC, will accompany the short as well as all of the forthcoming episodes in the series, fueling each action sequence and setting the mood.

During a recent interview with AFROPUNK Tony shares, “I saw that there currently wasn't an animation that spoke directly to the Hip-Hop community without trying to exploit the culture. We've had shows like The Boondocks and Afro Samurai, but when those went off the air they left a huge void. We're now trying to fill that void with The Indies."

On August 28th, Tony launched a crowdfunding campaign in efforts to raise funds to complete and present the short to networks, production companies and potential investors in Los Angeles. In less than 24 hours, they raised over $4,000. You can support the cause and help him reach his goal of $50K by making a donation on the official KICKSTARTER page HERE.

Summary of The Indies: Set in a futuristic dystopian society, The Indies follows an up and coming rapper named Slick. Born into a well-to-do family living on Earth's Moon, he longs for the opportunity to pursue his dream of becoming a famous recording artist. With a burning desire to make his dreams come true by any means necessary, Slick has a chance meeting with DJ Chops, one of Hip-Hop's biggest DJs and record executives. Slick is offered what seems to be an amazing recording contract, which Slick hastily signs without reading the fine print. Slick soon finds out that not only did he sign up to pursue his dream of being a famous artist, but he also signed up for something much more sinister. You see, what Slick failed to realize is that not only are record labels home to some of the universe’s biggest music stars; they also serve as fronts for hitmen for hire services of nefarious crime lords. In order to free himself from his contract, Slick must now work with his new label mates to release his debut album while simultaneously executing dangerous hit jobs. Through these missions, the label mates will explore morality, loyalty, human nature, and discover who they really are at their core.

Larry travelled to sf to write pkt2 and recorded it in Atlanta.

His name is deep and he is one half of the nyc production duo 2 hungry bros. They produce for a slew of talented rappers including homeboy sandman. Deep sent me these beats while I was in miami, but I never got around to using them. I'm glad i did now. the beats are fire!

Pkt2 is a continuation of my story picking up where the first pkt left off. It is lyrical, has weight and is fun. I tell some stories, get political and look to the future. the reception so far has been warm!

Roller Coaster, the latest album from DMV emcee Brain Rapp, was inspired by the ups and downs of his personal life.

Judah Gives you...... @JayTheHomie @MikeyyySoL - "PLAYGROUND"


How does one cap off an absolutely phenomenal summer of music, with the level of originality & creativity on display via new & old artists alike? Take 5 of VA's most talented, under-turned-on the radar musicians and put them on a single track, and let the magic shape itself. With some assistance from Noah Kenton, Vin Atlas & 4-ill, the latest gem from dynamic duo RoesShamBeaux (consisting of MC JayTheHomie and producer Mikey Sol) serves as a victory lap for the pair, after the success of the wildly-popular summer anthem 'Tequila Toes,' which was released earlier this summer.

'Playground' is a powerful ode to the unknown and unspoken - a message made even more powerful once the backbone of the track takes center focus. With a peering eye on every artist featured, all 5 creatives manage to take the song to a new level via their own individuality, while simultaneously combining their greatest strengths and accomplishing perhaps the most impressive feat of all - coming together as one. Emotions as vast as the ocean are blended; from hope to sorrow, depression to joy; and back again - yet the track is wholly transparent in its meaning and intent, it walks the thin line between pure and tainted - something everyone who listens will be able to relate with.

Judah Gives you....... @LAMBOANLO - ON MY WAY - OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO



With all eyes on the Washington D.C. metro area’s budding music scene, rising artist Lambo sees his big break just over the horizon. So of the city’s soil that his birth certificate reads District of Columbia General Hospital, the 24-year-old wordsmith was born in 1992, the second youngest of six children, and raised in neighboring Capitol Heights, Maryland, on the D.C. borderline. It was there that his mother and father, along with his older siblings, exposed him to a myriad of musical genres and sounds from numerous eras.
From his older brothers’ love for Tupac, Scarface, and The Notorious B.I.G. to his parents emphatically playing early Motown acts like The Jackson 5 and Marvin Gaye, along with D.C.’s homegrown genre Go-Go, throughout the house, Lambo pulls from an extensive frame of reference when creating his music. For many, the challenge would be embodying these influences and the DMV’s soul without sounding dated or like a caricature of artists from previous eras. Not an easy feat. And yet Lambo manages to do so seamlessly due to his natural penchant for lyricism and melody displayed on songs like “Amen.”
Lambo writes lyrics with a perspective much wiser than his years – a testament to his tribulations and blessings. When mentioning the former, no single event has affected his life like the untimely death of his older brother, which left him shell-shocked at the tender age of seven-years-old.
Losing someone so close lit a fire in Lambo, ultimately causing him to approach each day with a higher level of urgency, considering that any day can be your last.
In come the blessings. The timeliest being Lambo’s greatest gift: his daughter. Born in 2016, just as his career began to ascend, she’s given him laser-focus – a reason to stay grounded through the madness that comes with fame and stardom. Like life, music is about balance. With the omnipresence of the Internet, quick, microwaveable product has supplanted for songs of substance. Fortunately, the proverbial cream always rises to the top, making the game look rather appetizing for Lambo.

Judah Gives you....... @ullnevanohiphop, @napalmdef "86 Draft"



This track is an homage to the legendary Bias, who died before he could share his talents in the NBAUllNevaNo writes most of his raps at his night job, while Jumbled gets up early in the morning to make beats. This duo came together due to their mutual love of raw raps and Boom-Bap beats; tired of releasing random singles, they teamed up for a 7-song EP (due out early September 2017.) They first worked together on a track on Jumbled's solo album [I wish it was longer], which came out last year."

Judah Gives you....... @Mannywellz - "WATERMELON"



With 19 dates left to go in support of Jidenna's 'Long Live The Chef Tour,' Maryland mainstay Mannywellz playfully addresses stereotypes on “Watermelon,” the follow-up to his well-received single “Wrong Place.” Last heard assisting BK mainstay Stro on “Holy Vibe,” the song is a change of pace for the DMV native and will live on his forthcoming SoulFro project.
