      (deleted) Wow. That is one of the best conceptual tracks that I think that I've EVER heard. This is so DOPE that I won't even try to deconstruct it. I knew all about Marvin's tragic story, but to hear it like this?? Wow. Thanks for putting me on to this, Ray.

      Raydome B Dolan is an amazing artist, his lyrics and storytelling are a thing of beauty! He's got a poem about ODB called who killed Russel Jones, it's brilliant, I tried looking for video but there are just a few mobile uploads, I think this is the best of them, not the best quality, but you get the idea! Hoping it's on his next album or mix tape!

    DOWNLOAD THIS MP3 FOR FREE & get more FTP related items at http://tinyurl.com/FilmThePoliceSFR
    This song is featured on B. Dolan's "HOUSE OF BEES, VOL 2" http://tinyurl.com/HouseOfBeesVol2

    B. DOLAN's "FILM THE POLICE" pays tribute to N.W.A.'s infamous "F*ck the Police," serving as a call to action for the digitized media movement while responding to the recent explosion of police brutality all across the world.

    This free MP3, courtesy of STRANGE FAMOUS RECORDS, features a reconstruction of Dr. Dre's original beat, brilliantly reanimated by UK producer BUDDY PEACE. Label CEO, SAGE FRANCIS, opens the song by picking up the gavel where Dr. Dre left it 23 years ago, introducing a blistering, true-to-style flip of Ice Cube's original verse by SFR cornerstone, B. Dolan. TOKI WRIGHT (Rhymesayers Entertainment) follows up by stepping into the shoes of MC Ren, penning the people's struggle against cops as a case of "Goliath Vs. a bigger giant." Finally, Jasiri X (Pittsburgh rapper/activist) rounds out the track by filling in for Eazy-E, reminding us that police brutality disproportionately affects poor people of color.

    With the Occupy Movement bringing various forms of injustice to the forefront of people's consciousness, "Film the Police" is a reminder that cops have been a continued and increasingly militarized presence in public streets. Thanks to the widespread use of smartphones and video cameras, along with the popularity of social networks such as Twitter and Facebook, the power of the media has been put back into the people's hands as they document the injustices perpetrated by those who have sworn to serve and protect them.

    The lyrics to "Film the Police" are available at: http://bdolan.net/film-the-police-lyrics/

    This video was directed by Mason Johnson (Klepticenter Productions) and edited by Weston Woodbury.

  • "CREATIVE DIFFERENCES" - Prolyphic & Buddy Peace
    "Working Man" is available in EXCLUSIVE SIGNED CD Packages & as an MP3 Download here: http://tinyurl.com/WorkingManLP

    For Prolyphic (Providence, RI) and Buddy Peace (London, UK), the Atlantic Ocean wasn't even a speed bump on the road to crafting their "Working Man" album. Separated by the sea and working on two continents, the pair assembled the record with little thought to the distance between them.

    Shooting music videos as a duo, however, has proven a different challenge.

    For the first 2 clips, Pro made "Drug Dealer" without Buddy, and Buddy starred in "Go Green" with Lil Pro 5000, his emcee partner's puppet alter ego. For their third visual endeavor, they refused to let physical limitations stand in their way.

    "Creative Differences" doesn't appear on "Working Man", but captures both the feel of the album and the effortless bond between this unlikely pair of hip hop afficionados. It is a brand new, rough, raw verse delivered in one take by Prolyphic (in Providence) over live MPC-drumming from Buddy Peace (in London), joined together by the apex of 1970s film technology: the split screen.

    If you haven't copped "Working Man" yet, check the inimitable chemistry and show of skill on display here, and then, as Prolyphic gently encourages within, "just go buy the fucking album!"

    Among many things, this song and video touch upon the subject of PTSD. There are many organizations and resources that are available to vets who are struggling with civilian life, but not everyone feels comfortable reaching out for help. Some people might not even know that they need help until it's too late.

  • "SINKING SHIP" - Sleep of Oldominion [official video]
    I'm a fan of Sleep, this is from his new album Oregon Failure released on Strange Famous Records. Anyone else feeling this?

    "Sinking Ship" is the first video from Sleep of Oldominion's album "Oregon Failure", his first solo release since 2009's "Hesitation Wounds"!

    Produced by Denver's Maulskull, Sleep's 'Oregon Failure' is a sorely needed return to spitting bars for the genre. Set to Maulskull's heavy hitting, up-tempo dreamtrap, the album's themes touch on trial and error, effort and failure, and ultimately perseverance. A master of poly-rhythmic turnarounds, chopping double time, Sleep builds up cadence the way Diplo builds towards the drop. Never coming off phony or Pollyannaish, young go-hards and old school heads alike can identify with the anthems of 'Oregon Failure'
