ASTONISH : The Astonishingly Odd Project


The long awaited album from Chicago hip-hop artist, Astonish "The Astonishingly Odd Project" dropped today. Here's what GoodLife's BDBusiness has to say:

"Clever word play with great delivery. Astonish hits you with a one two punch with great production to back it up. Upon listening to this project, you are thrust into a lyrically charged journey that only Astonish can guide you through. Chicago is definitely represented and is felt in every bar. Eppi, Jay Vega, Jdott Trife and others lend a hand to make this a complete "Astonishingly Odd" project. Alex Baez of GL Studios's sound engineering in the post, brought it all together for a great album." - BDBusiness, GLMRecords

Aside from the project itself, Astonish, along with the genius videography talent that is Sense Hernandez (Beast Factory Films) drops a video for single "Lord Forgive Me" off of his album.

Tuesday, December 6, 2011


M. Appeal is a Chicago-based rap, spoken-word, and pop artist. She is also the founder of Diamond Linked Entertainment company, so needless to say, there is nothing this woman can't do. M. Appeal has performed at New York Fashion Week as well as on Tyga's ROAR nationwide tour).

BKLYN STICKUP Presents: Danse Daimons & Papertime

Having recorded over 1000 songs to date, Danse Daimons is sure to be on every hip hop fans radar soon enough. He wants everyone to understand, his gripe isn’t with the artists making dance songs or wearing tight clothes, it’s purely with the OVER SATURATION of these things in hip hop. Hearing enough of this approach- Danse is here to show his niche in the game.

Reap Featured On "The Wright Times"

Rapper, producer and photographer Duwayne Padilla proves that after 17 years of dediction, dreams really do come true. No stranger to the Wright College area, Padilla goes by the aliases “Reap” and “R. Raven” in his many endeavors. Considered a man of many talents in the art world, Padila found his place in Chicago in more ways than one, leaving his impression on many different artistic ventures. Coming into a subjective industry with little experience certainly hasn’t slowed him down any. In an interview with the Wright Times he shares his experience on the stage, his philosophy on photography and his unexpected rise to fame.

Best From The West

So, I don't know if you guys remember, but I did a flyer a couple months back for my friend BROke's album release party. He sent me a couple of videos to let me know how much I missed out on. Thanks, man. *rolls eyes* just kidding. Check out the footage below of BROke, his homey, DJ NoShame, Armstrong, Gonzo, & Icarus Jones doin their thing out on the West Coast.

Purchase his album, Eastside Goldengate Lynguistic Stockton Cali Musick on iTunes. I got one and trust me, you want it. If you aren't as lucky as I am and you don't have a direct hookup (ha!) Hit up iTunes/BROke.

NMM #006 ft KING of Hearts

Goodlife Music Group's emcee/producer KING drops his mixtape, KING of Hearts today in time for Valentine's Day -- and yes the name's always gotta be in CAPS and for good reason. With his mellow beats and smooth flows, he takes you through a journey through the ups and downs of "the game". You know exactly what game I'm talkin about. He goes from playin the field, to meeting his one, and then to speaking about a love that has been lost. It's been awhile since I heard an album/mixtape that tells a story I can relate to. For real. The vibes I get from his songs are reminiscent of those I get from old school classic hip-hop love joints. Marchin' ft. Astonish is fast becoming my favorite track from this set. So if your taste is anything like mine, you'll appreciate this for beats that stimulate the eardrums and lyrics that speak to the heart and soul. Download now, thank me later.

Artist & Executive Producer : KING

Co-Executive Producer: Jason FAYZE Valcarcel

Graphics: Marie Ferrer

Photography: Okay?!!

Model: Sheena Marie
