Here is the new video “Have Some Fun” from multi-platinum producer Roy Hamilton III, which will be featured on the micro-mixtape “The International” hosted by DJ Whoo Kid and DJ Do-It-All. The International is part two in a micro-movie, where Russian spies are fighting over the micro-mixtape technology, which is far more interesting than the traditional promotional methods we see today. You can watch Roy Hamilton III which features Selina Carrera – Have Some Fun on the player below.
Leading up to the release of “The Stimulus Package” Jake One and Freeway join the team at Good*Fella Radio for a great interview and feature.

Stylah is a pioneer of the U.K Hip-Hop world. It’s a statement I’ve said before and will continue to use to describe Stylah. Producing relevant music, music and football (soccer) fans will be delighted to hear the brand new track “John Terry”. The comedy style is remarkably good, and highlights Stylah‘s story telling ability even when rapping in fun. You can listen to Stylah – John Terry on the video player below.
