For the second time this year, Franc Grams has dropped a new album for his fans. Following February's Let's Start Over, the Connecticut emcee caps off his 2014 with the release of his new album, The Premonition. Ready to prove himself Grams explains, "I'm here and here to to stay. Over 40 releases this year and two albums. My work ethic can't be in question... neither can quality." Words that hold weight, as proven by the 15-track effort — featuring Game, Trae Tha Truth, Jus Cuz and more.

As a blogger sometimes you'll meet an artist that you think can come out really do something and make some noise. As can be said for Austin's ThaKidChillz. I was looking forward to him making some noise as he was name to our firt ever Freshamn Class list back in 2012. Since then ThaKidChillz has been quiet, he's dropped a few songs here and there, but nothing showing signs that he was really here to bring the noise. Well now ThaKidChillz has released a new single titled,"The Beginning" produced by ATX producer, Marc-Set-Go. The single is off Chillz' newly quietly released five track EP, "Breakfast For Dinner" completely produced by Marc-Set-Go. Hope this release is the beginning of a new spark for ThaKidChillz.

After releasing new visuals, earning a Metro Times feature & collaborating with MAHD over the past few weeks...Nolan The Ninja releases more new music as 2014 comes to a close; "OB4LN (OB4LN = 'only built for live neguz)" On the track, Nolan artistically presents his usual cadence of "illphoric rawness"...The song is also produced by J.U.S., who's a member of Danny Brown's Bruiser Brigade!

"DOTTA season is upon us." After teaming up with Ohio artists to create the Nothing Is Free collective and release the self-titled album in November, DOT (a.k.a. DOTTA) is ready to shake things up on the solo scene once again. Coming back with a brand new sound and style, he's set to release his new album MCMXCVI on January 27th. "AC€" is the lead single, a song that is self-produced and deals with the journey to the top of the mountain in hip-hop. DOT also rhymes about the lavish lifestyle while dropping quotable lyrics throughout, such as "and if your appetite is small this will hold you/cause you ain't have to do the s**t a boss would go through.
