Baltimore Rapper Oboy Lo Preps Forthcoming Mixtape Wasted Youth with Hot New Single

Baltimore-Bringing the hard-knock life of B-more's wicked inner city streets to fans across the East Coast, rapidly emerging rapper Oboy Lo has been making quite a stir on the underground music scene.

Via independent label BMR (Busy Making Riches), he has been making quite a name for himself with two highly popular music videos "Young N Reckless" and "Playing Da 50." And now he is set to raise the bar once again with energetic new single "F*ck What You Heard" and highly anticipated mixtape Wasted Youth.

"I do music for the streets," says Oboy Lo. "I'm from Baltimore. That's what I represent and there's nobody like me in Baltimore or anywhere else. That's why they love my music. It's street and it's different."

Raised in East Baltimore's rough and tumble "Down Da Hill" section, Oboy Lo jumped into the rap game head first and no time, found himself working alongside super producers 808 Mafia and Zaytoven and Maybach Music Group rapper Tracy T. Now with the recent release of energetic new single "F*ck What You Heard" and highly anticipated mixtape Wasted Youth, Oboy Lo is well on his way to the top!

"I'm excited about all my music," he says. "I got some of the type of music the streets need to hear."

Mike B - Im Drunk(Artwork)



Bartow, Fla.- In about as much time it takes him to serve up a second round, central Florida R&B sensation Mike B has listeners leaning like 6:10 with his 100 proof, top-shelf single "I'm Drunk." On this playful party ride, the bartender-by-day and singer-by-night murmurs midnight marauds of turning up bottles with his crew atop a lumbering bassline, crashing synthesizers and up-beat, club-ready tempo.

Released on Florida-based independent label Hunn%d, LLC., and produced by musical maestro Shaq D, the lead single is just a sample of what's next on the menu from upcoming label compilation album Nothing More, Nothing Less Vol. 1, due late August. The project features label mates rapper Mic-Lo and R&B/pop songbird Em Bailey. Each track was handcrafted by in-house producer Shaq D.

"Mike B caught my attention the first time I saw him perform," explains music industry gatekeeper DJ HeadBussa. "He's much more than just a singer; he is an entertainer, dancer, and a great song writer. He has the complete package and I plan on breaking this record."

Since the single's release a few weeks ago, "I'm Drunk" quickly gained the attention of DJs, fans and promoters alike. As a result, Mike's demand has grown tremendously, and he has been busy performing throughout the Sunshine State.

"People's reception of the music has been amazing," says Mike. "I knew people would like it. I just didn't know that it would catch on so fast. I'm young, having fun and will continue to make good music that appeals to everyone!"

Along with the music, Mike B is set to release a bi-weekly vlog series entitled "Mike B - I'm Drunk: Round 1," which will give you exclusive access to behind-the-scenes studio sessions, concerts, and parties.

Justin James - TMYLM (Web)



Springhill, Fla.-Initiating a tradition of creating the kind of music to withstand the test of time, central Florida-based Timeless Traks taps into the local talent pool to discover the newest sensation in urban music. His name is Justin James and he is making quite a splash with his new single and video "Tell Me You Love Me" and forthcoming ep Now or Never due July.

In a complex mix of R&B-inspired hip-hop, Justin croons about the highs of love, joys of adoration and despair that comes after the love is gone on "Tell Me You Love Me." The single was recorded and mixed by platinum engineer/producer Bryan Tyson (DJ Khaled, Plies, 2 Pistols) at Deep Productions in Tampa. The video stars James and was shot by film director Chris Leto (Crazy Lake).



"Springhill seems to be a breeding ground for talent," says manager Dwayne Golson. "Artists like Laws went on to work with J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League (Rick Ross, Mary J. Blige, Drake, and Lil Wayne) and featured on BET's Hip Hop Awards Cypher. Justin James is the next big thing. While new to the industry, he is already a seasoned song writer and performer."

James' EP Now or Never now ships out to college radio in advance for its July 14 release date. James is also currently working with his new band in preparation for a late summer promotional tour.
