A-F-R-O "We Got That" feat. Scrooge (Prod. Mr. Green)

News Article Title: 
A-F-R-O "We Got That" feat. Scrooge (Prod. Mr. Green)
News Article: 

With the 2016 A3C Hip Hop Festival now officially underway, iHipHop Distribution and the A3C are proud to announce their renewed partnership for A3C Volume 6. The first single from this year's A3C compilation album comes from the rising Los Angeles lyricist, A-F-R-O. With a name short for All Flows Reach Out, the 18-year old MC first gained notoriety in 2014 with an audio submission to R.A The Rugged Man’s ‘Definition of a Rap Flow’ contest, which quickly went viral. A-F-R-O quickly captured the attention of notable figures in music. Questlove is quoted as saying, “A-F-R-O is the future of Hip-Hop.” In July, A-F-R-O released his debut EP with producer Marco Polo, appropriately titled A-F-R-O Polo, to rave reviews.

"We Got That" exemplifies A-F-R-O's signature style of boom-bap mastery and is produced by the illustrious Mr. Green, equally known for his production for hip-hop luminaries like R.A. The Rugged Man, Jedi Mind Tricks, Freddie Gibbs, and The Outsidaz as he is for his Noisey web series Live From the Streets. On the hook, Scrooge insists, "you say you got bars, well let me hear something" and A-F-R-O gladly obliges with an array of lyrical acrobatics that will have fans listening on repeat to catch each line. The track premiered today alongside the announcement of A3C Volume 6 via HipHopDX.

A3C Volume 6 marks the sixth year that the A3C Hip-Hop Festival and iHipHop Distribution have joined forces to bring a diverse array of new hip-hop to fans across the globe. The A3C compilation series has been influential within the genre, serving as a barometer for which artists will become renowned staples in the ever-changing hip-hop landscape. Past compilation artists include G-Eazy, Curren$y, Action Bronson, Big K.R.I.T, Vince Staples, Ab-Soul, A$AP Rocky, Danny Brown, Underachievers, Smoke DZA, Trademark Da Skydiver, Rockie Fresh, Bodega Bamz, Freddie Gibbs, Sir Michael Rocks, Alex Wiley, Mick Jenkins, Chris Webby, Dave East, OCD: Moosh & Twist, Scotty ATL, Robb Bank$, Michael Christmas, Tunji Ige, Manolo Rose, Locksmith, and Trinidad James, just to name a few. For this reason, the compilation has seen praise from various outlets including iTunes, as its editors raved, “the A&R rep has done a commendable job, cherry-picking some of the most promising, would-be rap stars from countless wannabes.”

This year's A3C Volume 6 will offer an even more refined overview of emerging hip-hop artists, as the compilation will feature approximately 30 artists, where in past years the compilations has included well over 50 artists.

A3C Volume 6 is slated to hit stores worldwide on October 28th via A3C / iHipHop Distribution

Sean Price Rap Clinic Part 2 feat. R.A. The Rugged Man

News Article Title: 
Sean Price Rap Clinic Part 2 feat. R.A. The Rugged Man
News Article: 

R.A. The Rugged Man was indirectly, directly responsible for why Sean Price was forced to start a rap clinic. R.A. leapt from a stage at a show Sean was attending; landing on him and damaging his vocal chords. Forced to stop rapping, Sean turned to a new source of income, as the owner and teacher of a rap clinic.

With Sean’s tragic death last year, students of the clinic were sad to lose their mentor. Several of the students had pre-paid credits for the class. To prevent refunds, R.A. The Rugged man felt it was only right to step up and honor the legacy of Sean Price by assuming the new role of teacher for the clinic.

Although he claimed to take a more professional and patient approach to the teachings…things didn’t unfold that way during his lessons. The only bright spot of the day seemed to come from his star pupil, A.F.R.O. Watch the drama unfold in Rap Clinic Part 2!

Mr. Green "The Original" feat. Benefit (Official Music Video)

Mr. Green "The Original" feat. Benefit (Official Music Video)
News Article: 

Pre-Order the Live from the Streets album on vinyl NOW:
http://www.fatbeats.com/products/mr-g...
(gonna take a minute before it ships but order now so you can be the first to get it)

"This video was shot when Benefit was visiting NYC for the first official Live from the Streets album release party. We didn't really have a plan but we knew Ben was only here for a couple days so we got busy and shot as much as we could. In addition to this video we also filmed a video for "if i don't go to hell" including cameos from the wonderful Janice. That video will come out down the road as a part of the ongoing Live from the Streets saga. I honestly don't know what the future holds for the show but I know we've created something truly special with LFTS and I know that we aren't even close to finished.

This video is special to me because it features some of the best moments in the Live from the Streets
show over the last couple years along with a couple glimpses into future episodes (like Sean Price and Odb).

It’s also special because it’s my first time rhyming on a real song. Shoutout to the legendary Benefit for hearing me rhyme and then convincing me to jump on a real song. If enough people ask me to I might put out more rhymes... we will see."

'The Original' feat. Benefit is featured on the first
official LFTS album out now on Duck Down Records:

Mr. Green - "Born To Be King" ft. KG of ATR (Music Video)

News Article Title: 
Mr. Green - "Born To Be King" ft. KG of ATR (Music Video)
News Article: 

From Mr. Green:

"For this episode we linked up with KG, an incredible reggae artist we met out in the park in Brooklyn. This one is crazy because we recorded the whole song outdoors, just a few minutes after meeting each other. What happened is Sam, the co-creator and OG director of the show, and his girlfriend Ally were walking through the park one day when they heard some amazing singing coming from a group of people hanging out by the lake. They walked over and found KG and his crew ATR (Above the Rest) free-styling. Everyone exchanged numbers and then a few days later Sam brought me down there with some beats. I played KG just one track off my beats album “one day EP” and almost immediately he started singing into the mic “… I was born to be king black…”

I’m proud of this one because, like most of our tracks, it happened in the most organic way possible. But not only, we recorded the whole thing outside on the side of a lake and now they play it the radio (on Sirium XM) and on TV (on MTV Jams)… crazy.

The track is called “Born to Be King” and you can get it on the first official "Live from the Streets” album out now on Duck Down Records feat. Freddie Gibbs, Matisyahu,KRS One, Malik B, Vinnie Paz, Bodega Bamz and many more." - Mr. Green
