The fam Crew54 is back with a video for the track Labor and they've enlisted some of Austins Hip-Hop elite like, Gargamel Jermel, ABT (A Better Tomorrow), Nick Nack, Bavu Blakes, Blaxsmith, and C-Hova. I wish I could have been a part of this video. I know it was a lot of hard work but I know there was a lot of fun involved also. The track is Produced by Dicther2 Productions and they also have a version with NC emcee Supastition who made his way back to Hip-Hop this year.
The video is dope! For my heads that ever saw the movie Office Space before you will enjoy this video. The video starts off with the homie G-Christ serenading you with some Michael Bolton. Trust me you will be thoroughly entertained by the video and the song in general. These cats have been at it for some time and you can tell they aren't stopping any time soon!! You can check more of Crew54 and the work they put in at www.slaprapz.com Proud to be down with these dudes and you can bet you will hear more from us in the future. Check the video and share. Make sure you leave a comment and let them know if you liked it or hated it. Trust me though....This song and video are pretty hard to hate.

Its always good when you have some new music. For me its great! I haven't put put any new music in a while now so when the homie e.d.g.e (@edge1981) said that he was down to do an EP with the kid I couldn't resist. Me and e.d.g.e. have connected a few times before for a few joints and if you are a fan of my production or e.d.g.e.'s flow then you know we come together quite nicely! I love how the EP came out. From the artwork, which e.d.g.e. designed, to my beats and e.d.g.e.'s rhymes it came together perfect! I don't want to write too much about it because I want the music to speak for itself. This wont be the last time you hear us together as we are already in talks of putting something else together before this year ends and I want to take it to the next level as I am sure he does too.
Take a listen, download, and share it on your Twitter or Facebook walls and get the word out a little further than it is right now. As always I appreciate all the support and words from everyone who has already checked it out. Just press play! Don't forget to leave a comment and let me know what you think!

The fam @gargameljermel, who shot my video for Steel (look up and click the play button while you're here) was telling me about this video. I saw a few tweets about it, few Facebook posts, and he sent me the video the other day and I peeped it but I was with my little girl so I couldn't play it like I wanted too. Plus it was off my phone and I still have the iPhone with them low ass speakers.........What I am really trying to say is I didn't get the full effect until today.
It's dope! The beat caught me at first and as a producer its going to do that. I've heard of Bigg UU (@BiggUU254) before and I wanna say I heard like 2 songs from him and money isn't bad at all. With Maintainin' he rode the beat like a champion and he has the fly young lady with him in the video. He isn't doing too much (which is what most of these rapper dudes do these days.....TOO MUCH!) It was simple, made you pay attention to the video AND the song rather than just looking at 40 butt naked chics with orange/blue/pink/purple hair in Jordan heels and jersey dresses doing wild shit just to get some recognition. HotBox254, Bigg UU and beautiful Amanda Alosi (@AmandaAlosi) who was in the Maxims Hometown Hotties section, teamed up and made a dope video. Bigg UU got the beat from the producer and put some heat to it! Its never a bad thing to have something nice to look at in your video either. Gargamel Jermel shot and edited it....And they delivered what I like to call "that shit" to you.
What I am trying to say is check this joint out....You wont be disappointed. I might have to slide son a few beats, when I first heard some shit from him I was interested but I just got to working with cats on some other projects + life in general and well....you know the rest. Watch the video, leave a comment and I gotta end it with a bar from that nigga Phonte, aka Phontigallo......

Back again with some new music for you. This album was put together by the UK clothing company Rockfresh, who specialize in Hip-Hop T-Shirts. The UK's first and only urban street-wear store dedicated to real hip-hop. With tees featuring the likes of Guru, Biggie, Dilla, ATCQ & Black Sheep, they bring the realness to your wardrobe!
I was privileged to be able to produce a song on the album. The song is called All Aboard by Home Team. If you followed the beat contest I was in on Facebook then you have heard the beat before. I think the song came out great! The album in general is really dope. From the beats to the rhymes. Put me on a lot of UK artists and producers that I have never heard before. I got a chance to hear the whole album before it was released yesterday (05/15/2013) and all I can say is I love the way Hip-Hop as a culture can connect you to places you might have never been before and places you might never go. Now the people in the UK got a chance to hear some production from me and some rhymes from Home Team and the people in the US that actually took the time to download the album got a chance to hear some dope UK emcees and producers that we may have never heard of had it not been for this project.
Me personally I have respect for Hip-Hop no matter where its from. And from what I know the UK and just overseas in general love Hip-Hop. I kind of see them as more purists than we are here in the US. You have your purists here no doubt but the fans overseas open their arms to emcees that the US doesn't even pay attention to anymore. I see the US going with whats hot and overseas fans stick to the essence. The same artist that cant get a show in the US can go to Germany and rock a crowd of people that cant understand English but still know EVERY word to an artists song. That's dope to me. Meanwhile in the US you go to a concert and all you see is camera phones in the air instead of the fans just rocking with the artist. Having fun. I've been to countless shows and am always pissed when I leave because I didn't get any or enough pictures but I am so concerned with connecting with the artist during their set that I don't even think about it at the time.
Regardless hit the link and download the album for that FREE.99! I assure you that you will be satisfied, production wise and lyrically. While you are over there cop you a dope Hip-Hop T-Shirt and support the brothers at Rockfresh!!

Told you I'd post it!! e.d.g.e. "Concrete Camouflage" (Prod. by CientifiQ) which is of the homie e.d.g.e.'s latest EP "Concrete & Camouflage". When I say we gets busy I means we gets busy. That's two dope tracks from us with me on the production and e.d.g.e. showing his penmanship. Stay tuned for the not yet titled EP from us which will be out soon. Don't worry....I'll remind you!
Why you say? Life...Moved to Houston, TX so I have been trying to find a way to pay these bills and getting used to life out here. Still working musically every chance I get although I haven't put any new music out as of late. There has just been a lot of things on my mind that have slowed me from moving as fast as I can and I should be. Trust me I have a lot to say lyrically and with these beats.
As far as the music goes I have been working on my album which is still untitled. I was going to do an EP with my dude A Better Tomorrow who has sent me some heat beat wise but then I got a few joints from my dude M-Slago and there are a few beats I am keeping in the stash for myself UNLESS I can make a connect with one of these artists that are getting busy right now. So I figure with the beats I got from ABT, Slago and the stuff I have in the stash, instead of doing an EP I can do a full LP. So wait on that but it will be a while because there are a few other joints I am working on.
Another project I have in the works is a joint with my man e.d.g.e out of Canada. If you stay up with the music I am involved with then you have heard "Confirmation" which was a heater I produced for e.d.g.e. some time ago from his "All Flow Everything" album. The video is on the page so be sure to check that if you haven't. We also just dropped another joint together called "Concrete Camouflage" from the Concrete & Camouflage EP that e.d.g.e just dropped maybe a month or so ago. I'll be posting that on the page soon. No video for the track but the song speaks for itself. So far I have sent e.d.g.e about 7 joints for the EP we are doing together which has no title at the time but it doesn't even need a title. Just know it will be dope! Me and son work great together and I look forward to working with him more in the future.
DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT forget about Slap Rapz Part II that will be underway sometime soon. If you heard the first you know when me and Crew54 get busy we gets fucking busy!!! That's also in the works.
Copped the MPC Renaissance!!! Thought it was about time to upgrade even though the MPC2000xl is like a son to me and has produced some great records I wanted something new and I love it! Still that MPC feeling and sound that Akai has brought you over the years and with the incorporated software it makes things fun again. Even though I don't think my beat game is where it needs to be I am stepping it up more and more every time I press the power button and start chopping up these samples.
I have been hearing a lot of music lately that has been very inspirational. My man Torae always dropping new heat that keeps me on my toes because thats one cat I have to work with soon. Just as soon as I have my shit straight I am coming for you Tor!!! That Dice Game album by Guilty Simpson and Apollo Brown....MY GOD! Apollo murdered the projection and Guilty slaughtered it like I haven't heard many cats do in a while. Although I have been fucking with both for a while that album gave me a new respect for both of them. I think it was put together perfectly. The new Buckshot and 9th Wonder album was dope, Sean Price, Craig G's album, Skyzoo, Roc Marciano, House Shoes, Termanlogy and Fame with Fizzyology....I could keep going and going with the music I have been inspired by. Jansport-J has been working making some dope albums with artists as well as his instrumental albums. Then I hear M.O.P. and Premier supposed to be working on a full album together and Planet Asia and Gensu Dean will drop Abrasions in Feb. Shiiiiit. Inspired isn't even the word yo.
I just wanted to drop a few words to let people know that I am still alive and still working. If you know me you know I love Hip-Hop and I will keep doing it whether I get on or not. It takes a lot of the stress of life off of me but sometimes the stress stops me from being as great as I can in this culture. I will get there and I still appreciate all the love that I have received thus far with the music as well as the support that people will continue to give.
Until next time...Peace!!!

If you rock with me then you know I've been talking about the My Life video from Crew54 for some time now. We've done some dope videos up to this date! "For the People" which is one of my favorites, Gargamel Jermel did the "Steel" joint by yours truly with assistance from Dookie Vizion/Crew54. "Da Sypha" another Slap Rapz heater also had a really dope video. All from the minds of Mos, G-Christ and Gargamel Jermel. I wont forget the first joint they did with me, "Common Ground" which is a song I produced and emcee'd along side of Virt. Organized Rebels is what we prefer to be noticed as.....I will forever be in debt to these 3 brothers for the things they've done for me.
Basically......Crew54 puts in WORK! The song itself says a lot. The lyrics, which The M.O.S. and G-Christ provide you with, along side the production from S. Killz, with the CRAZY guitar solo from Carter Arrington....and you have some "Certified ILL" ness.
The process was crazy! I was a part of this video so I was there for a lot of things that took place. My nigga had to deal with the law in a major way because of this video. So the title My Life says it all. This is what they do...They provide you with hard hitting music matched with fly visuals and needless to say the majority are left satisfied.
The song "My Life", from the Ep "BRB" entirely produced by S. Killz and emcee'd by Crew54 is bound to be added to a lot of peoples iPods/iPads/iPhones (and those OTHER devices) because its that ill!!! Watch the video and get a taste of whats in store with "BRB"....
