With over nine underground tapes bearing his name – his last being 2011′s Who Is Chi City – Chi has collaborated with Cory Gunz, Mullyman and has toured with Philadelphia Freeway, Mickey Factz, Mikey Halsted and Daytona. He was crowned Coast To Coast’s Indie Artist Next To Blow and has performed at the BET Artist Showcase and ThisIs50.com’s Independent Fridays. He has ghostwritten for B.O.B., Diggy Simmons and G.O.O.D. Music affiliates. “Hell yeah fuck ya life is what the H.Y.F.L stands for,” explains Chi. “The idea behind it is really about me saying f**k you to everyone who left me when they felt like I was going to fail, or those who only hung around me to benefit and not really help put the work in. So I paint the picture loud and clear about how I feel when it comes to fake frends.”

Montreal rapper CeasRock presents the ilovenewyork.usMedia-directed video for “All My $”, the new 514IndoRecordz-produced single from his Zero Gravity EP which features Uness, Loe Pesci, I.Blast and Boy 6lue as well as production from Vincent Pryce and DeeJay IZ. Born Sam Karimi, Ceas is a spokesman for Montreal urban site Mook-Life.com, as well as founder of his own movement, REAL LIFE. Videos have already been released for “Faceless” (click to watch), “10.5” (click to watch), “Mook Life Pt. 1” (click to watch) and “M.O.E.” (click to watch). “While I was writing for this EP, money was definitely on my mind,” says Ceas. “From how I was to earn it, to how much of it I needed to spend, it was looming over my thoughts heavy. I wrote All My $ from this perspective. I was hungry and I didn’t know how I was supposed to eat. The verses depict that hunger from a young desperate man’s view, and an older, equally hungry, man’s perspective. I didn’t feel like performing the verses in the video because the verses weren’t necessarily about me. So I focused on the feeling instead of a literal depiction of the lyrics. I recently graduated from university, but I have no intentions of using my degree to get a job. So, with that in mind, one day I was cleaning out my garage of about ten years worth of school papers, textbooks, old bills, etc… I thought to myself, I didn’t want to just toss it out, I wanted more closure. So I had the idea of burning them in a ceremonial bonfire. I’m burning the old me..I’m burning All My $.” Zero Gravity is available now on Ceasrock’s Bandcamp page.

The NOLA Hiphop Archive was founded in 2012 as an effort to collect, document, and make accessible to the public the oral histories of New Orleans’ influential rappers, producers and DJs who helped to create and popularize hiphop and bounce music traditions in the city and beyond. Founded in 2012 by Tulane graduate student, Holly Hobbs, the Archive currently holds more than 30 videotaped interviews with the city’s hiphop and bounce artists and pioneers, including Mannie Fresh, Mystikal, Partners N Crime, Dee-1, Ricky B, DJ Raj Smoove, Nesby Phips, Nicky da B & Rusty Lazer, and Queen Blackkold Madina, star of the Academy Award-winning Katrina documentary, Trouble the Water. In conjunction with materials from the Where They At bounce exhibit, the community-accessible NOLA Hiphop and Bounce Archive will launch with the support of the Amistad Research Center at Tulane University in Spring 2014. That means that beginning in the spring of next year, the previous collected interviews––along with Where They At interviews and materials––will be accessible to the public both online and in person at the Amistad Research Center free of charge. The Kickstarter initiative will be used to assist in the collection of an additional 30 new videotaped oral histories, to be completed by the end of 2014, as well as the creation of a digital viewing station, housed in the Amistad Research Center at Tulane University. A donation of any amount toward our successful goal will help to further document and provide support and recognition for these important members of our creative community and beyond. Holly Hobbs is currently completing her PhD at Tulane University and writing her dissertation on post-Katrina hiphop and recovery in New Orleans.

Brooklyn rapper Logan P. McCoy presents the Dylan Verrechia-directed music video for “Black Morning”, the new single from his EP Strength Of Character. “Black Morning” captures the frustration I felt as a young man in desperate need for personal change but without a clue as to how to bring about this change in my life,” says Logan. “We all go through growing pains and we all have our unique ways of dealing. In my alcohol and weed fueled meditation, I reached the conclusion that death might be the necessary catalyst for the change that I was so desperately seeking.” Logan describes the Strength Of Character EP as “an experiment that became the foundation of a new sound. Initially my idea was to poke fun at ’90s style rock/pop music that MTV had made popular. Being first and foremost an underground MC, I thought it would be funny being that I didn’t play any instruments and knew nothing about making rock music. Having no band or instruments to craft the sound I had in mind, I decided to follow the Hip Hop tradition that I came from of flipping what I had to accomplish my goals.” Strength Of Character is available now on Logan’s Bandcamp page.

It gets even more amazing on the album.” The Moment drops December 3. Click here to watch a video documenting the making of The Moment.

Montreal rapper CeasRock presents the 5Pound Media-directed video for “Faceless”, the new 514IndoRecordz-produced single from his Zero Gravity EP which features Uness, Loe Pesci, I.Blast and Boy 6lue as well as production from Vincent Pryce and DeeJay IZ. Born Sam Karimi, Ceas is a spokesman for Montreal urban site Mook-Life.com, as well as founder of his own movement, REAL LIFE. Ceas believes that every single object, person, place or theme can be rapped about in an interesting way. “It’s all about the context” he says. Ceas has done R&B-flavored collaborations with the Uness and Crime In The City collective (click to listen) as well as live interpretations of soulful cuts on his Coolest Cats tape (click to listen). Videos have already been released for “10.5” (click to watch), “Mook Life Pt. 1” (click to watch) and “M.O.E.” (click to watch). “Faceless is my way of saying we’re all just numbers,” says Ceasrock. “It’s that feeling you get when you watch everybody go to work on the train in the morning. All these people have a story, but who cares? In the first verse I speak on my own story as an emcee, and how being relatively unknown is shaping me and the decisions I make. The second verse addresses the female population that is faced with a double standard of expectations on the daily. Both verses end with words of encouragement to keep it moving in this rat race we call life. The video is meant to symbolize this feeling of censorship through different depictions of facelessness.” Zero Gravity is available now on Ceasrock’s Bandcamp page.

Anything can seem impossible until we see someone do it.”
