It’s a celebration of what I love about music: discovery, diversity and artistry for art’s sake… It’s about putting music together that will outlive me and live on for generations to come that is full of emotion, vibration and fun.

Xian Bell – ContraDistrict

Effortlessly rapping and singing at the same time, Xian (pronouncedKey-yawn) takes the listener on a journey through the Crenshaw District in L.A. with melodies that are getting rave reviews from critics at some of Hip-Hops most coveted sites.

“The District is just one big ass contradiction but it all meshes perfectly into some dope sh*t. That’s exactly what I am – a big f*cked up contradiction that luckily turned out dope,” Xian Bell candidly.

YURY – Quote This

Originally hailing from Pittsburgh, Yury is a Hip-Hop artist, song-writer, producer and dj that now resides in Brooklyn. Similar to Atlanta’s Russ, Yury takes pride in being a one-stop shop, and doesn’t plan on slowing down anytime soon.

From co-headlining Webster Hall to selling out Knitting Factory, and producing for Grammy winning artists, Yury is gradually creating a name for himself. Arguably one of the most multitalented artists rising from Brooklyn, Yury is constantly sharpening his unapologetically genuine sound. Influenced by a variety of Hip-hop acts including Dave East, 6lack, and Big Sean, Yury strives to be honest with all of music.

After an in-depth interview with Respect Magazine and releasing his lyrical “Acetate” single, Yury delivers a dark new song titled “Quote This.”

“I was working on the beat at my old apartment, with a view of Manhattan. It just had an epic vibe to it. I’m chasing my dreams, freshly moved to NYC, and the lyrics are a testament to how I felt,” Yury explains.

On his latest effort, Yury remains unapologetically unique, and most importantly, focused. “Change goin’ come, so prepare to move,” Yury raps.

Listen to Yury’s self-produced “Quote This” below and visit http://iamyury.com/ to stay up-to-date on his latest releases. If you like what you hear, check out Yury’s previous release, “Acetate.”

Wyclef Jean – Fela Kuti

Wyclef returns with a new single titled “Fela Kuti” off his forthcoming studio album “Carnival III: The Fall & Rise Of A Refugee.” Here’s what Wyclef had to say about the record;

“I decided to name it Fela Kuti because for me, I feel like we be thinking of Bob Marley, we give a lot of people from our past props, so when the kids hear Fela Kuti, I really want them to Google it. Fela Kuti studied jazz in England. Wyclef studied jazz at Vailsburg High School. Fela Kuti then went back to his country and tried to help his country by running for president. Wyclef, you know, did the same thing. Then, Fela, through all his obstacles and all that, his music is what pillared him right back to the top. He understood the strongest way to help politically was to make sure the music was bangin.’ So for me, the same way kids can have songs called “Wyclef Jean” who are influenced by me, I want kids to know who Fela is and what he means.”
