Josh Martinez and Camobear Records also just released the second video from Josh Martinez’ epic new album Blotto!!! “Cross that Road” is a song about coming to the fork in the road and having to choose your path and deal with the consequences. Its also about the battle for fame and name recognition that forces artists to focus on commercial routes to stardom and the price your pay for that path. It’s really fresh and you can check it out here:
Directed by Sapient and Ife, hereby known as the Ghosts of Aurelius, this video features co-production from Stuey Kubrick and Sapient.

London based emcee Joshua just dropped his debut LP “The Context” and sent it our way; all I can say is that it’s one truly incredible piece of work start to finish! The first thing that struck me was Joshua’s hard-hitting, straight up, tell it like it is lyricism that really put’s everything he relays in his message into complete perspective. Mix this with Gurps’ flowing melodic beats that compliment Joshua perfectly really makes for one hell of an album and one that I can highly recommend adding to any good hiphop collection. It’s music with a message that puts you in the shoes of the story teller whether he’s discussing the ills of consumerism, self-empowerment, love, war, hunger, oppression… well I’m sure you can get what I’m saying… real issues that affect a wide variety of people all over that I’m sure most can relate to no matter where you’re from. It’s all about “The Context” in which you choose to see it. This album has truly moved me and I’m grateful for the opportunity to listen and share my thoughts on it.

The “Working Man” album + LIMITED EDITION 7″ vinyl for this song is available now at Strange Famous Records: http://tinyurl.com/ProlyphicBuddyPeace
Prolyphic speaks on the thoughts behind “Business As Usual”:
“From pedestal to chopping block, more and more overnight music celebrities are being manufactured on an assembly line. They are pumped out to audiences at a greater volume than ever to catch fleeting fame and buzz in an endless cycle that promotes quantity over quality. Throw an artist out, and reel in the catch. If that artist doesn’t work, then try another, then another, and they keep the pop factory conveyor belts running like it’s “Business As Usual.”
