Camp Lo Tribute

Camp Lo is back!! Just under a different name, "The Lo", after Hot 97 DJ Mr. Cee suggested they change their name to help introduce themselves to the mainstream. After a brief hiatus from the music industry, they have reunited and signed a new deal with SRC Records. They plan to release a new album in the near future. I've posted the latest single released by them below.
Camp Lo - Luchini

Camp Lo - Coolie High

Camp Lo - Black Nostaljack (Come On)

DJ Honda ft. Camp Lo - Disco T-E-C

[Video] E. Ness Callin Out Jae Millz

E. Ness from Making The Band 2 fame decides to call out Jae Millz for another rap battle. From what I remember Millz took the first battle, hands down...

Ness might have lost but he still had the most potential out of Da Band. I haven't heard much from him lately, but check his myspace for some new music.

Ocho Cinco

HAHAHA. Chad Johnson has legally changed his name to Chad Javon Ocho Cinco.
The circus continues for Chad this off-season after making numerous requests for a trade, he has legally changed his name to Chad Javon Ocho Cinco in Broward County, FL. This move comes after suffering several injuries during the pre-season and has since been followed up with the release of fellow teammate Rudi Johnson. Seems to me that the Bengals are going no where this year, yet Ocho Cinco still makes them entertaining.

[News] Prodigy - Product of the 80's

In the months leading up to his incarceration, Prodigy, from the legendary group Mobb Deep, conjured a prolific body of work. From videos to songs to interviews, he fought to bring his message to the frontlines once
again. Through the lyrical savage of the HNIC2 LP and his constant explicative blog entries on numerous websites, Prodigy has connected to his fans in a unique way. He slammed opened the creative floodgates to assure that his position in the rap game was asserted and the presence of a legend was remembered during his bid. But this recent approach is invigorated because, although Mobb Deep are the penultimate purveyors of NY murder-rap, that true dark street theme music, Prodigy has also always explored politics and conspiracy with as much fervor. Now, he is wearing his world-views on his sleeve more than ever, because P is quite clearly a victim of this American system. He was bagged in a hip-hop cop sting and then incarcerated on corroborated lies by the same officers. Needless to say, he is quite aware of the nuances of Babylon. So, in 2008, the current climate of the world lines up to Prodigy’s individual experience in a symbiotic way and parallels the gravity of the era in which he was raised. It fuels his creative fire and lends to his arsenal of material, because, for him, it is a necessity and a destiny to be making this music and it is a responsibility to pull the wool from the eyes of the masses..

In the creative period of 2008, Prodigy made a home at Dirt Class Studios in Brooklyn. Often he arrived alone and left alone. There was no entourage, there were no groupies. It became his momentary sanctuary for writing and recording. The duo of Joey and Bravo (better known as Sid Roams) hosted these sessions and provided the bulk of the soundtrack. The chemistry was evident and they began churning out a copia of material. It was clear that a collaborative project was in the works but as Prodigy’s time swiftly approached, the HNIC2 LP (a second chapter to his debut solo work) took precedence. Prodigy picked a collection of tracks from these sessions to supplement the work of Alchemist and Hav and formulated the album that is now HNIC2. The remaining material is what is presented in Dirt Class Records’ Product of the 80’s. Accompanied by Dirt Class cohorts Big Twins & Un Pacino, the project is a true collaboration of the three Queens natives. Prodigy leads the charge appearing on all of the 14 songs. Twins & Un each spatter the LP with their own signature styles. Production duties are deftly handled by Sid Roams, JakeOne, DJ Khalil, and Sebb…
