Rico James - "Lemongrass"

Some find their place over a steaming pot, dodging the spitting grease from the frier or sweating purfusely on the steaks sizzling on the grill. Cooks find their calling in the kitchen, Producers like Rico James cook in a different space. Beaten drum pads, dusty records and unclogging gunk trapped under the needle on the turntable is where you might find him. Sampling, chopping, creating and then repeating. Both approaches are quite similar, ingredients have no less meaning and of course it's the secret dash of seasoning that is always the truest addition. What does this all have to do with anything or to matter to you the reader?

Man Bites Dog Records and all their wisdom has teamed up with Rico James to give the world "Rico De Gallo." What is this project with a fantasic pun of a name? It's a beat tape of course, full flavor and to indulge your senses even more, we included an outstanding salsa recipe. Yes, thats right friends!! Chips, Salsa and beats. We bring the salsa (recipe) and the beats, all we ask is you bring the chips. Let's party on March 3rd!!! And Don't be afraid to ask for seconds!

Star2 feat. $tupid Young - "6 Ft. Away"

San Diego based artist Star2 has just released the new single featuring acclaimed rapper $tupid Young. Entitled “6 Ft. Away” the two Asian-American rappers return with a punchy anthem about their thrilling lifestyle in the limelight. Over thumping bass, a razor-sharp beat, and intoxicating rhythmics, Star2 and $tupid Young note on the lessons they’ve learned from fame and fortune.

Star2 reached out to $tupid Young very early in his singing/rap career. $tupid Young, an icon in the Asian music community – the first to pave the way for Asian artists in the rap and hip hop lane. $tupid Young’s parents experienced refugee camps after fleeing the Killing Fields and Khmer Rouge in Cambodia; Star2 was born in Mae La refugee camp in Thailand after his family fled the brutal Burmese Army committing genocide and targeting Star2’s ethnic mountain tribe –the Ka-ren of Burma.

“6 Ft. Away” is a burlesque style song with a hip hop twist. “I want more Asian artists to win,” says $tupid Young. He has collabed with Star2 on a six track EP due out in March with features from MB Nel, Chinatown Runner, Gee Kade, and Lil Poppa. The two will promote their EP with a tour beginning in April.

Three Chillers (Copywrite, Awol One & Kount Fif) ft. DJ Hoppa - "Ain't No Rules" (Prod. by Kount Fif)

Be home by the time street lights were on. Don't eat yellow snow. Look before Crossing. You may have heard these things either mentioned in passing or screamed in your direction depending on who was the aurator. Certain kids sold the other kids flashlights, so they could be out way past the last flicker of the sun. What the kids with the flashlights might have come across, were other kids with candy cigarettes, a boombox blasting out rhymes like "Let the Funk be your guiding light," and "Some got some, I got Nun, like a devout Priest," "Words hurt like the quiet of silence," then "Lord help me not care about the opinion of strangers," and finally that scratch hook "Ain't no rules for this shit called life," which rattles in your head.

Time passes and you find yourself jaywalking, jumping the turnstile in the subway station, touching hot stoves and wearing white way past labor day. Friend, you listened to Three Chillers "Ain't No Rules" and your life is never gonna be the same. This message was brought to you by Three Chillers who are Copywrite, Awol One and Kount Fif. Scratches provided by DJ Hoppa. Three Chillers full album coming this fall on Man Bites Dog Records.
