Keep an eye out for this guy... because he's on the rise (and because he's bouncing around so much nowadays he'll likely be in your city soon)! It's like he took the T.I. vibe to the Jersey Shore with this one.

Run The Jewels, the hip hop duo Killer Mike and El-P, join the party of hip hop releases for the month of June as the prepare to release their Run the Jewels album. In the last few days, they announced that June 26th will be the release date for their upcoming album. In addition to the release date, we also have the artwork and track list for the project. After the two's pairing last year for Killer Mike's R.A.P. music, it should go without saying that a lot of hip hop heads are waiting to see what Killer Mike and El-P unleash next. Run The Jewels (Killer Mike & El-P) join Kanye West, Mac Miller, J. Cole, and Statik Selektah in the onslaught of hip hop albums slated to release tomorrow on June 18th. As it turns out, J. Cole actually did Killer Mike & El-P a favor moving from his original date of June 26th to compete with Kanye West for album sales on June 18th. Check out the artwork above and track list below.
There are a number of albums dropping tomorrow (June 18th) and Kid Tsunami "The Chase" is one of them. He has released one more single before the album drops "Twothousandand40" featuring veteran MC Masta Ace.
I enjoy seeing creative people, well be creative simple right. Well Ivan Ives is a creative individual a Hip Hop artist born in Russia but raised in LA. He not only gets behind the microphone but also holds the video camera. This track "8mm" produced by RJD2 is a reflective song that takes you down memory lane with Ivan. One of the coolest things is he shot this video with his Iphone using the 8mm app enjoy!
This past weekend was a jam packed event in Atlanta. Local radio station Hot 107.9 hosted it's 18th annual Birthday Bash concert bringing dozens of hot stars into the city for the weekend. All the clubs around the city were flooded with celebrities. Rapper and Actor Ludacris was one the hot stars looking for a place to party. He ended up at Prive Nightclub in Atlanta where he was involved in a huge brawl resulting in a viral video flooding the Internet. Ludacris was reportedly hit in the head with a bottle by someone in the crowd, which started the fight. Ludacris took to social media after the night was over confirming that the fight was real. Allegations are still unclear if his girlfriend Eudoxie was also injured in the fight. Ludacris is an Atlanta based rapper and currently stars in the blockbuster "Fast and the Furious 6".
