the more life
the more i realize
life is hard
for everybody. “Cruel Fuel”
is an exploration of the
experiences and circumstances
that have made my life hard
but i felt unable to deal with directly
because of fear and shame. my hope
is that being open and honest
encourages others to
deal directly with their fear and shame
instead of continuing to be

So, recently we had one of our friends and non-do hiphop affiliate to take a listen to the new Sage Francis album “Copper Gone” and share their thoughts… This is what they had to say:
“With a ‘DIY or Die’ approach the HipHop veteran delivers a compelling, captivating classic for 2014. The album deals with the artist’s signature outlook on social and contemporary issues in and out of the HipHop scene, validating his ‘silverback gorilla status’ through cunning multi-tiered wordplay and melancholic undertones. The proclamation is that Sage is here to stay, and even though he professes ‘both sides of my bed are the wrong ones and I am always waking up’ he continues to arouse the minds of his fans and followers”.
and what an amazing album it is!
Sage also recently dropped this assiduous official music video for the track “Grace” from the album; it really does the track justice!!

Check out Prolyphic & Buddy Peace’s hot off the fresh Official Video for their track “BUSINESS AS USUAL”!
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.”
Vocals by Prolyphic
Beat by Buddy Peace
Additional Vocals by Steve Malec
Directed by Falside. Edited by Prolyphic

Hey all.. Hope you’re having a good day!
Check out this stunning new music video from No Bird sing from their track APOGEE!! It’s directed by Patrick Pegg and features the unmistakable voice of Aby Wolf… Check it out here:
it’s the second video from their latest album “Definition Sickness” and it’s available in various formats here: http://tinyurl.com/DefinitionSickness
Here’s a little more about the track:
“When writing Apogee, emcee Joe Horton imagined two eternal beings who are locked in orbit around one another, taking turns sleeping and being awake. During the transition, the two pass each other like ships in the night, sharing a brief moment of collective consciousness before one falls asleep and the other awakens. Apogee takes place during one such transition, as the soon-to-be sleeping declares his love and surrender to the soon-to-be awake. In this fleeting moment of lucidity, he tries to tell her about all the beauty and pain she will experience while awake, ultimately finding comfort in the futility of the task. The video adapts the concept of the song to a couple in a modern apartment experiencing the endless awake/sleep cycle. The awake writes their thoughts onto the sleeping, treating them more like diary than partner. Just before the transition, the awake realizes the danger in what they’ve done and attempts to clean the sleeping. They fail to do so, and the sleeping wakes, covered in writing, not quite sure what to make of the place they find themselves”.
