A couple tracks from last weekend’s Spotlight, UllNevano and Knowledge (at least one track) as well as a solo track produced by Nick Tha 1da. Both tracks are nice, with nice soulful beats.

This has been out for awhile and it’s one of those things that I meant to get up sooner than this, but for whatever reason didn’t get to it. It’s a nice little project, heavy emphasis on the bass/down south sound, which is alright with me. Worth checking out if you haven’t yet – Trav

In an era where run of the mill rappers come a dime a dozen, artist Solomon Childs sits atop his own throne as possessing one of the most notable and unique voices in all of hip hop. Coming up in the 90′s under the Wu-Tang regime afforded Solomon what seemed to be the opportunity of a lifetime. As the Wu-Tang Clan became the world’s most sought after group, Solomon’s early career was filled with nothing but gold and platinum certified achievement. The New York based emcee scored critical fanfare and praise for his contributions to Cappadonna’s “The Pillage” (Certified Gold), Ghostface Killah’s “Supreme Clientele” (Certified Platinum), Wu-Tang Killah Beez “The Sting” (Certified Gold), and both Wu-Tang Clan front man RZA’s “Bobby Digital” albums (Certified Gold Respectively). While fueling off the album successes of the late 90′s into the new millennium, Solomon Childs was sought
out by fans and critics all over the world who had sung his praises for his unique gutter flow and grimey verbal prowess. Spanning across Europe, Latin America, and throughout Northern America, Solomon made his mark in the physical by performing alongside artists such as the Wu-Tang Clan, RZA, Ghostface Killah, Theodore Unit and more while earning the loyalty and respect of a diverse and wide array of fans who cared nothing more than for the art of hip hop and those like Solomon leading at the forefront of the movement.
During this time, fans and media outlets all around the world embraced the artist known as Solomon Childs for his vocal contributions and appearances in many classic videos such as Cappadonna’s “Black Boy”, Ghostface Killah’s “Cherez La Ghost”, RZA and Kool G Rap’s “Cakes”, and Remedy’s “White Boy”. Whether it was long periods of tour travel and promotions, being a public icon, or the constant struggle that comes with maintaining a high demand work schedule as an entertainer, Solomon began prepping himself as a solo artist to further brand the name Solomon Childs and step out from the Wu-Tang shadow. While maintaining the same voice that his fans throughout the 90′s until now had held in such high regards, Solomon learned that it was essential to be as versatile as possible in order to survive in the ever so changing music business. Mixtape collaborations with the likes of RZA, Alicia Keyes, Destiny’s Child, Mark Ronson, and more earned Solomon a huge following as a solo artist with combined sales of over 75,000 units.
From an emcee that refuses to fade with the times as the essence of hip hop is eclipsed with short lived trends and even shorter lived artist careers, comes the man we know as Solomon Childs. Recognizing his potential at this very point in time is exactly the motivation behind Solomon’s desire to move forward and progress rather than dwell on the luxuries and successes of the past. In the year 2009, the voice of the people that is Solomon Childs is set to speak great volumes…make sure you’re tuned in

Check out the new video from Roc C and IMAKEMADBEATS titled “Won’t Fall”
featuring Rakaa Iriscience. Guest cameos include Ohno and Dj Rhettmatic. Roc C and IMAKEMADBEATS’ project “The Transcontinental” drops March 24th on Koch Ent.
With each subsequent release, casual listeners and hip hop heads alike are learning more and more just why Orlando’s most ferocious emcee has earned himself the title of MidaZ the BEAST. Continuing in the vein of his prior release,’Grandmasters Remix Lp’, which paired the UJ Empire word warrior with an album’s worth f production, MidaZ‘s newest project finds him teamed up with another legendary hip hop producer.
‘Ozone’s Finest’ features MidaZ rocking over beats by none other than hip hop’s #1 Soul Brother, Pete Rock. “This album is me showcasing multiple styles,” says MidaZ. “I tried to show with this project that my mic game is tight…no matter what the drums do. I chose Pete Rock as my adversary because I believe he’s one of the greatest ever. I wanted to test my pen against greatness.”
Featuring guest appearances by Roc C of Stones Throw fame, Killarmy), TzariZM, IMAKEMADBEATS, and more, ‘Ozone’s Finest’ showcases the continuing evolution of a rapper whose vivid wordplay and razor-like agility on the microphone has earned him the praise of Wu-Tang’s Killarmy and Shyheim, Babygrande production duo , and anyone else who’s been blessed to witness the kid spit – all over the trademark Pete Rock sound that most consider to be the pinnacle of hip . While the claim as ‘Ozone’s Finest’ currently sits under his belt, it’s only a matter of time before MidaZ expands his title to greater arenas.
