Stay Golden :: New ‘Mixtape’ From Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice

In preparation for the upcoming release of the instrumental project Slow Burnout, and the as of yet untitled new solo project, I decided it was time to drop another ‘mixtape’.  I locked myself down in the studio for a weekend, and after a handful of marathon sessions, I created a follow-up to A Working Class Hero (Is Something To Be).  The latest installment in my series of ‘mixtapes’, Nothing Gold Can Stay is further exploration into the musical influences I embrace.

Phranchyze has never been afraid to embrace his influences wholeheartedly, no matter what the source.  His latest project, #TheAnimeTape, is a chance to embrace the spectrum that most hip-hop heads enjoy on the low.  Here’s a video from the project as well!

The Paradise Lost Tapes is a collection of songs that will not be included on the official Paradise LP release, for a variety of reasons.  As with Paradise, the entire project was written by IKE (Soul 20/20 | Los Angeles, CA), produced by Haris Q (LNS Crew | Austin, TX), co-produced by IKE, and mixed and mastered by Shawn Dell (Action Figures Music | Austin, TX).  The album features Laws, Kydd Jones, Khaleel, and more.”

Nobody’s Business :: Ceschi Rocks ‘Beauty For Bosses’ Acapella For SXSW

You never know when an artist is going to zone out and channel some realness for you on stage… that’s the beauty of when a passionate artist like Ceschi is given the chance to spill his soul in front of a crowd.  At this past SXSW, he performed Beauty For Bosses off of the recently released Broken Bone Ballads, an album I am very much looking forward to taking in.  Mad props to Fake Four for keeping things unflinchingly real in this world of falsification.
