Harmony Festival 2010 from Harmony Festival on Vimeo.

Download "All Talk" Kid Cudi ft. Chip Tha Ripper
The intro featuring a sample from Christian Bale's all too well known verbal ass whoopin' from a year ago starts off this new Cudi track. With Man on The Moon 2 roughly not due out until the fall of this year, Cudi writes on his website "We just recorded it and put it out just for the fuck of it." A promise of more "fun joints" to come keeps fans satisfied and glad that The Cleveland Kid is in the studio, no doubtably roasting trees, and staying creative.

Kanye West - Power ft. Dwele by thatdudeFRESH
For those begging the question “Where’s ‘Ye?” He’s baaaaaaack! With the newly leaked single “Power” feat. Dwele, King Kanye West has returned. And those that thought (or hoped) his “Ego” would take a step back can have a royal seat, as Kanye shares, he “embodies every characteristic of the ego-tistic.”
From the moment “Power” opens with a group chant, it’s clear Mr. West is going to break his silence in the aftermath of the 2009 VMA's
PROVO, Utah – Gary Coleman, the child star of the smash 1970s TV sitcom "Diff'rent Strokes" whose later career was marred by medical and legal problems, died Friday after suffering a brain hemorrhage. He was 42.

Eminem's highly anticipated album "Recovery" is finely about to drop on June 22nd. This album has features from Pink, Lil' Wayne and Rihanna, but no Dre or 50? Expectations are high after the release of the "Beamer, Benz or Bentley" freestyle that dropped in late April, where Em sounded like he was back to his old Slim Shady ways of destroying the mic. Hopefully "Recovery" will fill the gap that "Relapse" left earlier this year.
1. Cold Wind Blows
2. Talkin’ 2 Myself Feat. Kobe
3. On Fire
4. Won’t Back Down Feat. Pink
6. Going Through Changes
7. Not Afraid
9. No Love Feat. Lil Wayne
10. Space Bound
11. Cinderella Man
12. 25 to Life
13. So Bad

The much-anticipated new album from Eminem, Recovery (Aftermath/Interscope), will be released June 22, 2010 (Europe: June 18), it was announced today by Interscope Records. On Recovery, his seventh major label studio album, Eminem has reached out to an exciting list of first-time collaborators, including DJ Khalil, Just Blaze, Jim Jonsin and Boi-1da, Dr. Dre and Havoc.
It’s good to see he’s back on the grind & ready to release another project. This is the first single from his upcoming Libra Scale album set to drop later this year. It sounds like a record that could be big in the club.
Third leaked single off of his album "Lazarus" dropping June 8th. I dont know about y’all but I’d prefer Travie to put all his time into that new Gym Class album. Granted Travis is dope, but come on, Gym Class & Travie > Solo Travie.
T.I. shreds apart his new track “Yeah Ya Know (Takers).” Much like his buzz single “I’m Back,” the DJ Toomp and Smash Factory production features an edgier rock sound that will prevail on Tip’s forthcoming album King Uncaged (Aug. 17). Judging from its title, the song will also be included on the soundtrack to his action-packed film Takers.

The ROCK THE BELLS trek will stop at four major North American markets this summer, kicking off on August 21 at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA. The tour will continue on to Shoreline Amphitheater in San Francisco on August 22, Governer’s Island in New York on August 28, and will wrap up at Merriweather Pavilion in Washington D.C. on August 29.

Fans are also advised to sign up for the Guerilla Union newsletter for important announcements, pre-sale details and up-to-date information regarding the tour.
For the first time in the history of hip-hop entertainment, ROCK THE BELLS is slated to have headliners perform their most influential albums in their entirety. East-coast legends Wu-Tang Clan will perform Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers from beginning to end. Released in 1993, the group’s debut album revived the New York rap scene and is widely-regarded as one of the greatest albums in hip-hop history. Considered one of the greatest MC’s of all time, Rakim is set to perform 1987’s, Paid In Full, his first full-length album with Eric B. Fellow Golden age, east coast rapper, Slick Rick will conquer The Great Adventures of Slick Rick. Released in 1989, this debut album became a certified-platinum classic topping the Billboard’s Top R&B/ Hip Hop Albums charts. Highly regarded as the “THE TEACHER”, KRS-One is a hip hop culture advocate, music producer, MC and published author. Hailed as one of the best live performers, KRS-One will perform Criminal Minded. The 1987 trend-setting album sampled music from various genres including rock, reggae and funk.
Besides making a cameo in Timbaland’s last album Shock Value II, Justin Timberlake has been pretty quiet on the music tip. He was also spotted on Rihanna’s album, Jamie Foxx’s single “Winner” and more recently alongside Game and Pharrell single from The R.E.D. Album which has now been pushed back from release another week.
This is an unreleased record from the vaults, but maybe with his recent collaborations we’ll see some new material from the pop star.
After several collaborations, LA's Co$$ and Ft Lauderdale, FL's Numonics have joined forces to release the upcoming mixtape "Revelations". The first leak from the project comes in the form of "Now Til Infinity" featuring Lawrence, MA's Reks & Chicago's Naledge. All 3 MC's tackle the uptempo Numonics' production with ease showcasing their individual styles.
Co$$ x Numonics "Revelations" will be released in July

HBO releases the first trailer of “Entourage” season 7 which is premiering June 27 with the episode called “Stunned”. The trailer offers no footage from inside the season but highlights the five alpha males hanging out at sunset with suits on.
In the season premiere, the director of Vince’s latest action film talks his star into doing his own driving stunt, agitating both Eric and Ari. Turtle’s attraction to an underperforming employee named Alex threatens to damage his fledgling carservice business. Ari looks to add to his resume as “the biggest agent in the world” by eying an alliance with the NFL. Worried that his holding deal is about to expire, Drama pressures Lloyd, now his agent, to land him a project.
Jessica Simpson and porn star Sasha Grey are among the celebrity guests this season. The former is playing herself while the latter is taking the role as Vince’s girlfriend. – AceShowBiz.

Turntablism is the art of manipulating sounds and creating music using phonograph turntables or digital turntables and a DJ mixer.
DJ Shiftee was added to the legendary list of DJs in the DMC DJ Hall Of Fame back in September of 2009. Even though he does gig on Traktor, he is one of the most talented turntablists out right now. Make sure you google this guy, because you have to give much respect to a guy who can rock like he does.

Cam and his new protege Vado are back with Boss of All Bosses 2.5 hosted by DJ Drama. Hopefully now that Cam is done with the mixtape he can start work on that DIPSET reunion album. But if you were a fan of the Boss of All Bosses series you will want to download this you will not be disapointed.

This is one of my favorite cuts from Alicia Keys' album "The Element Of Freedom," which is in stores now. The video portrays a love shared between two people with different life experiences, but no matter how different the two are, their love for each other is unaffected by time or race. Beautiful song with a good video. Check out Alicia's website for the behind the scenes look at "Un-Thinkable."

Jay swooped the beat from a producer by the name of Quincy Tones while he was accepting beats thru twitter and ichat. He was immediately inspired to "invoke the energy of Big" on the track, if you didn't already get that from the title. He hit Diddy for some feedback and this raw, supposedly unfinished track is what came from it. Make sure you check Jay on his Myspace and twitter.

This normally would have been posted yesterday for Turntable Tuesdays but I caught up and wasn't able to post it but that's what WTF Wednesdays are for. Make sure you check out one of the baddest men to jump on the decks, Mr.Vibe straight out of the 916. He's sponsored by Rane Serato and has scratched with guys like DJ Qbert and Mix Master Mike, opened for acts like Method Man and Del the Funky Homosapien. He also rocks with his own band Shakedown. Make sure you check this dude out on Myspace DJ Mr.Vibe. Much respect to every to showed up to the battle, to Dj Traps for making to the final round and to Turntable Killers.

"I.E. stick together like L-M-N-O-P" a line off of Faimkills-A Thought Ghetto Messtape. Faimkills from San Bernardino, CA is geting a lot of local buzz as well as his entire BlackCloud family. This mixtape is very well balanced with dark songs such as the Dead is Living pt. 1 and pt.2 which features fellow blackcloud member Noa James whos album drops on cinco de mayo. This mixtape also includes upbeat songs such as M.O which samples the mickey mouse club theme song production of M.O. by Curtis King. And if you just like that feel good music tracks such as From the Bottom to the Top and my favorite track Dreamfantasy will soothe your soul. If you are a fan of lyrics this mixtape is for you. Hopefully we will hear a lot more Faimkills in the near future. You can catch Faimkills and Blackcloud at the Common Ground in Riverside, CA almost every sunday.
Don't Mention It | Download Now!
Loving this tape right here. Nice to hear some new music from Pac Div been waiting since Church League Champs dropped several months ago. This record got features from Colin Munroe who I have been feeling for quite sometime and another song called Dont forget the swishers feat. Dom Kennedy another up and coming westcoast artist. This album is definitely worth the download.

One of my favorite tracks out right now, Wale featuring Marsha Ambrosius "Diary" coming from Wale's debut album "Attention Deficit," which is in stores now. Wale is one of the most underrated MCs in the game and flexes his lyrical muscle, it's an album worth throwing the in collection.
