General Steele of Smif N Wessun is preparing his second installemnt of the Amerikkka’s Nightmare series, titled Children Of War. The twelve-track project is socially challenging, and will be available in stores from 23rd February 2010. Pushing the envelope and really questioning the status-quo, General Steele is using the project to celebrate Black History month, and the promotion has begun strongly. You can watch a video clip called “We The People” which sets the tone for the rest of the album. I’ll host more info on the Smif N Wessun – Amerikkkas Nightmare Part 2 when it arrives.

Pittsburgh is full of upcoming talent which includes the likes of Nick Rage, Boaz and Wiz Khalifa. Boaz had a monumental 2009, and his debut album “The Audio Biography” was critically acclaimed in the most respectful magazines and award shows across the country. Boaz continues his buzz with another solo mixtape called “Selling A Dream”, and the first leak is called “What You Know About”. Produced by the legendary Statik Selektah, I’m expecting plenty of leaks and promotion ahead of the release. You can listen to Boaz – What You Know About on the player below.
I’m excited to share the new leak from QuESt called “Swear Im Putting On”.

This is the brand new video from Kidd Kidd called “From Here”. I’d usually enter some cliche punchline like; he’s so good they named him twice. I don’t need to, but I guess I just did. The video has been produced and directed by Sha Money XL, who in 2009 released news he had inked a multi-million dollar music and film distribution deal for his “Dream Big” venture. The former Young Money member also dropped his DJ Whoo Kid mixtape “New Kidd On The Block”. You can watch the video for Kidd Kidd – From Here on the player below.
