Shelly B "Queen" The Visual ACCESS GRANTED

When I used the phrase "All Hail The Queen",as big as that statement is, it still doesn't sum up the amount of work that Shelly B has put into the game. To give ya'll a little background info, I first met "Shellz" in 2003 at The Larry Pickett Show (local tv video show). Before then, I seen her rock a few shows so when we first met I literally begged to give her a beat cd. We knocked out a few jams together,rocked a few collabs even one featuring Canibus...it didn't make the final cut on his album but we both killed it..charge it to the game I guess. So fast forward years ahead after appearing in numerous publications (The Source, Ozone Magazine,etc) and crushing opposing rap crew careers in front of everybody (ya'll should've been there,..Shelly B has matured into a "Boss" in every since of the word. Funny how we met at someone elses tv show and now she has her own entertainment company. Check out the behind the scenes footage for video shoots from her "Queen" project. Purist, don't let the club jams make you think that every"thang" is sweet. Homegirl, is an emcee in every since of the word. For more info, go to www.shellybthat.com

Sean Boog - Gettin' Mine

SEAN BOOG - GETTIN' MINE from Pricefilms on Vimeo.

Dope video (and jam) from 1/2 of The Away Team and Justus League emcee Sean Boog. Produced by Amp of the crew Actual Proof. I'm diggin this joint hard ya'll.....

Jones Andrews & DJ Aminor - Halfway Home Mixtape

To all of my people in the area code of the 252 by way or Roanoke Rapids, take your hats off and salute the up and coming emcee, Jones Andrews. If ya'll know me ya'll know I'm an animated emcee so of course I dig animated artists alike. If I had to compare this emcee to any one in the industry who came before him I'd say a lil Big L/Papoose with a dash of Skillz with his own twist. It's always funny to me when emcees who was born decades after the "golden era" of hiphop still managed to come off like a polished vet. The young homie is definitely about to carve his own lane in a minute. Check the DJ Aminor mixed project "Halfway Home". It's officially in the ipod now put it in yours. Also check his weekly 32 tuesdays series on Refined Hype.com.

DJ Premier f/ KRS-One & Grand Puba "5%" (CDQ)

"5%" is the first official release from the DJ Premier compilation, "Get Used To Us". 5% features two emcees that have heavily influenced everything I've ever written to this day, KRS One (Knowledge Reigns Supreme Over Nearly Everyone) and Master Of Ceremonies/Brand Nubian emcee, Grand Puba Maxwell. These cats should have been collabed but after hearing the jewels they dropped on this cut, the collab was well worth the wait.
