On Sunday (October 12th) rap icon Todd “Too Short” Shaw and industry veteran Monica Payne hosted an exclusive launch event for the official unveiling of their new state of the art digital production facility “The Magic Gate” in Studio City.
Special guests in attendance at the red carpet event included Cedric The Entertainer, Affion Crockett, Ray J, Shawn “Solo” Fonteno (Grand Theft Auto V), Luenell, Rosa Acosta, V. Bozeman (Timbaland’s Mosley Music Group), The Jazmin Sisters, DJ Whoo Kid and others.
Rising Chicago rapper and producer, PHIL, is back again with the third video from his debut self-produced album Cool Chicago, which is scheduled for a winter 2014 release.
Thirty-two bars straight over a Bunny Sigler sample, PHIL’s latest single “Half a Man” highlights the artist’s prowess as a lyricist and as a producer.
The promotional video shows PHIL rapping in almost total darkness; the visual is symbolic of the dark times that prompted the young man to turn towards rap as a coping mechanism and an escape route.
Pablo Geez drops his 1st single off his upcoming EP “Hi Neighbor”, entitled “Wrist Watch” prod. by EVK debut with the video. A good way to start off the fall season and prepare the fans for his EP which he’ll be announcing the release a little later this year.
