MP3/Stream: C-Note ft J Nolan Co$$ & Mistah FAB | “Brutality”With the Travyon Martin verdict, as well as the countless examples of police Brutality that go unaddressed every day, some of us have had enough; C-Note sure has. The Bay Area beatsmith has taken to the boards to vent his frustration and, hopefully, spark a change to an ever-growing problem. Weaving a few apt samples into his intricate, enigmatic boardwork, C-Note makes a pointed political statement with the record’s powerful foundation. He isn’t alone, either; helping to hammer home the point, J. Nolan, Co$$ and Mistah FAB grab the mic to share their insights into the record’s subject matter. Brutality is the first song release off C-Note’s upcoming project, Vol. 2, which has yet to receive a drop date.Source (Click the link to listen to the right to listen to the track!): DJBooth.net

Video: DJ Toure’ | “Streets Love" ft Casual

DJ Touré, the venerated DJ/producer for the Hieroglyphics crew, has had a very busy 2012; between running his Bay Area-based production company, 101% Music and producing songs for the likes of E-40, Dolla Will, and Erk Tha Jerk, it’s amazing that he had time to perfect his long-awaited new album, Touré’s Theory: Session One. Nevertheless, that’s exactly what he did, and is now announcing that Session One be released on February 19th via Hiero Imperium.

Touré’s project features a plethora of both Bay Area newcomers and rap veterans like Too $hort, Mistah FAB, and The Jacka. Also appearing on Session One is a number of his Hiero brethren, including long-time friend and collaborator Casual. The two recently teamed up for Touré’s latest video, a hazy, nebulous visual for the song “Streets Love It.” Directed by Dylan Freitas-D’Louhy, the video looks like something ripped off a broken VHS tape with revolving frames and grainy footage, and shows both Touré and Casual rhyming in front of glow-in-the-dark hieroglyphic paintings and fine females.

E-40 and Gary Payton are neighbors and they slap bones together, and they are probably watching the Laker game together. Thought you should know.

Recently, the Richmond, California, native popped up with a triple-threat performance on LoveRance’s "UP!," currently the number three rap single in the country on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart, which Su! produced, penned the hook for, and guested on with a scene-stealing verse, which he then followed with a guest verse on E-40’s "Function."While both of those songs have shown off the 22-year-old’s ability to craft radio-ready singles, his new mixtape KILT is all about taking the opportunity to show off the full breadth of his talents. "I picked KILT for the title cause this is proving-time for me right now," remarks Su!, aware of his newfound attention. "It’s just about trying to be exceptional at what I do, about killing it every time."Despite his recent success, Su! chose to evade the million dollar studios and big names, instead keeping the process for KILT as organic as possible. "I went back to my partner’s house and recorded all the songs there," says Su!. "I’ve been recording in a lot of different studios recently – a lot of different environments – so it was good to spend some time where I’m most comfortable."Similarly, production on KILT is largely handled by Su!’s crew, The Invasion, which includes childhood friends Kuya Beats, P-Lo, and Chief. Even when Su! enlisted outside production – from Trackademicks, Jay Ant, and The Starting Six – he made a point of keeping his circle tight-knit. "I kept the production close to home," explains Su!. I’ve been knowing Trackademicks since I was 11-years-old; and I’ve been knowing NicNac and Jay Ant for a long time, as well.”Su!’s efforts to keep his process low key with KILT paid dividends, with the tape being his most fully-realized effort to date, not only in Su!’s progression as an artist ("I really locked in and paid more attention to detail this time," he says), but also in the music’s honesty. While there are plenty of fun standouts, like "Get It In" or "Get Your Money Girl," there are also songs like "Made It," a track dedicated to Su!’s mother and grandmother. “‘Made It’ is a semi-success story,” says Su!. "It’s a song that a lot of people will be able to relate to."twitter.com/iamsufacebook.com/iamsu1http://www.hbkgang.com/
