Watts (California, USA) emcee Ras Kass has been doing his thing since the 90s, and that's a good thing. Here's another good thing: his joint "Judas" (featuring Planet Asia and Chace Infinite). This is the lead single off "Barmaggedon" - the Ras LP. Now, iTunes offers a pre-order for a mid-February release; but we found a Bandcamp link at which you could stream and buy the LP today! With lyrical features from Monie Love and Ice-T to Kendrick Lamar and Bishop Lamont... every Hip-Hop head should want to do that... now.

Charlotte, NC- Taking off at the speed of his sensual "electric soul" sound, JetPack Universe recording artist Jason JetPlane is quickly ascending beyond the stratosphere fueled by his debut single and accompanying video "SuperHero." Produced by DGF Music Group and Jason JetPlane himself, "SuperHero" is currently in mixshow rotation on Charlotte, NC's Power 98 and throughout the state on stations in Raleigh and Fayetteville. The lead single is from his digital EP Blackbox Vol. Love, which will be available for download early this Summer. "Blackbox symbolizes my heart and this EP is a musical expression of my inner being," Jason JetPlane explains, "sort of how all jets and planes carry the innermost important records of that plane. Love is bittersweet. This is my journey, so far."
Born in Keflavic, Iceland and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, Jason JetPlane has developed a style like no other. Blessed with a brilliant tenor voice, astounding production prowess and gripping lyricism, this sensuous singer/songwriter has an almost trancelike effect on anyone who listens. JetPlane has already won numerous awards, including a New York Urban Music Explosion award as well as Best R&B New Artist at the Carolina Music Awards, which was co-founded by Grammy Award winner Randy Travis. Considered by many industry insiders to be the next to watch, Jason JetPlane is flying high off his debut single and accompanying video "SuperHero." And he has no plans of landing any time soon.

To keep the buzz going for their forth coming mixtape, the group Blaq Planet (emcee Ston-city and producer/songwriter/vocalist Olatunji Mason) linked up with up and coming lyricist Infinite and boom bap beatmaker J-Coleman for a freestyle cipher. The cipher took place outside in the parking lot of the Rec Center on Clanton Road in Charlotte, NC after the four had finished volunteering at a Ketchmore Kids Community event.
