Fluent "Take You Down" Feat. Joe Budden

Chapel Hill, North Carolina artist, Fluent, isn't playing around this year! His upcoming album, "Supreme Victory", will be flooded with features, including "Take You Down" featuring Slaughterhouse member, Joe Budden. The album also pairs Fluent with Producer J. Cardim, who carries credits with Akon, Lil Wayne, Ludacris, Talib Kweli and many others. "Take You Down" has an unfamiliar, eerie sound, with a heavy lyrical drop by Fluent, which sets the song off. 

"Supreme Victory" will be released July 15th, 2014, under the "Sound Of The Culture" Independent Label. Pre-Orders are being taken through iTunes at

Major Green "Art Gallery"

It took me a minute to finally sit back and check this song out, and I've played it numerous times since. Major Green is a man of many talents, and I'm loving the sound and flow of "Art Gallery". Being the CEO/Creator of iKandi Productions has inspired Major Green to learn every aspect of the music and entertainment business. He not only writes and records music, he also produces, does his own Mixing and Mastering, edits videos, designs his own artwork and flyers, presses his own tees and duplicates cd's. He's a "Business" in himself. 

"Art Gallery" features singer T. Graham, Production credit goes to Tspoon

Major Green, aka Jabre Green, is currently working on his new album, and recently released the Official Video for another favorite of mine, "Good And The Bad".

If you haven't already heard of "ILLPO", let me introduce you to two of the hottest Hip Hop artists out of Greensboro, North Carolina. They go by the names "Boones" & "Bond" and when they hit the stage they set off an incredible tag team of lyrical comraderie that sets them apart from so many others.

Beats (Credits with 50 Cent and Tony Yayo, Lloyd Banks, Young Dro, Ludacris, Big Boi and others) with executive production by CBoogs. ILLPO-ODE is the 1st video from the UpSouth Musik represented rap duo from the "Dopamine" project.
