I’ve been wrestling on how to deal with a lot of the “news” I get from various sources, which in all reality is the same everyone else gets that runs a blog. I can’t sit on the email and the blog and put up “the newest Joe Schmoe single” as soon as it graces my inbox, nor do I want to. My solution to this? Sometime in the evening each day, I’ll toss up anything I have received throughout that day that I find somewhat relevant to what WYDU stands for. That way, the pub and media people are happy, anyone that graces the site and runs into something useful and/or entertaining are happy, and I’m happy that I’m still keeping the blog the way I want to for the most part.

Domination Recordings Artist: Saint
Now available is the free download of Saint’s new single “Do You Remember?” featuring Verses. This is the second single from Saint’s upcoming album “About Time” due in stores late June on Pro Se | Domination Recordings.
More about the release: A few years after his debut solo album “Grown Folk Music” and a couple of releases with his group The Good People, Saint returned to the drawing board and emerged with “About Time” on Pro Se / Domination Recordings. He is joined on the mic by El da Sensei, Cadence (Raw Produce), Dumi Right ( Legit) NYOIL, Mr. Man ( ) Eternia, Emskee (The Good People), Muneshine, Anti-, Mr. Complex, Honey Larochelle, Verses and Dr. Becket. With a mix of Hip Hop, R&B and Soul, Saint brings audiences a taste of New York hip hop from its pinnacle point, providing a unique vibe, but with a sense of familiarity. For listeners who have been awaiting the return of hip hop with substance, it’s “About Time.”

Hell Razah has been rather consistent lately with a dope solo album last year along with a great album released with Blue Sky Black Death later in the year. His is forming with Shabazz The Disciple as Thug Angels. Not sure about the name, but if his current “hitting” streak continues, this could be dope as well. (Trav)
