Laid Back Radio is set to drop a 15 track compilation from various artists they've been working with since 2002. Due out June 10th, "In The Currency of Love" is the second track featured from the project, and it's a soothing reggae influeced jam produced by ClassicBeatz out of Brooklyn, NY and sung by Wellington, New Zealand vocalist, Lisa Preston.

Camp Lo & Pete Rock - Mic Check (Video)

The Lowa joins forces with the Chocolate Boy Wonder, Pete Rock to brings us the first video from the forcoming album 80 Blocks From Tiffany's. Gotta give it to PR on the beat. Very different from most of his catalog I've heard. As for Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede, they get it in with their stylish rhymes and wild subject matter that'll have you running this joint back a couple. Cop the free download of 80 Blocks From Tiffany's The Mixtape to hold you over 'til the full album drops.

Jinx - U ft. Monica Delgado (Official Video)

I'm proud to say, I was in attendance last night at the "U" video release party for my dude Jinx. The crowd showed up a bit late, but nevertheless, they showed up and represented well for the Tampa emcee. Backed by a live band and featured vocalist, Monica Delgado, Jinx delivered an energetic performance that had the crowd in awe. The video for "U" is most definetly a winner and one to compete with for many big named artists. Colorful, playful, creative and hip-hop all the way. Enjoy this one.

Phony Ppl - If This is How Love Feels

The problem with good music is that there's so much of it out in the universe that it's virtually impossible to keep up with it all. I do my best to stay on top, but there comes many of times where I miss out on some incredible joints. Hence, I'm damn near 2 years late finding out about Brooklyn bred Phony Ppl. Consisting of 8 band members - ages ranging from 18-20 (maybe a year younger) come together to compose great songs, with a mixture of melodies and a hip hop flair that's NYC all the way. Hearing them today for the first time, I'm pleased to welcome their sound to my collection. Peep "If This is How Love Feels" below from their 09 free project WTF is Phonyland.

Stephan Muldrow - Ceilings

I shouldn't be surprised to find out that the multifaceted Georgia Ann Muldrow has a very talented brother as well. Stephan Muldrow displays his skills on the keys with this beautifully played composition entitled Ceilings. Just allow yourself to free your thoughts and embrace this excellent piece of work. Sorry no pic of Stephan, but believe me, the siblings bare a strong resemblance.
