Its been quite a bit of silence from Marcus J out of Austin, TX. He's been hard at work prepping the release of his forthcoming project "House of Mirrors." We've heard some loose track to hold us over for the long awaited project such as "Boxed In" "Black Out," and "Check It." Marcus J just felt it was time for a new set of visuals, his last video "Ms. Cleo" was recieved very well so Marcus hits us off with "Peace Circle" produced by fellow Austin, TX native Aaron Jr and directed by Grind Life Films also out of the ATX. So sit back roll up a joint, blunt, or pull out your bong or pipe and vibe to the new visuals that were created just for the smokers.

Mississippi native (Memphis, Tn resident), Go Phigga brings us yet another solid project that is truly well put together from top to bottom. Though it's only 7 tracks laid on the new EP "PHIGGA" it doesn't fall short from the true southern grit and "pimptastic" wit that Go Phigga is known for. The production line up is solid as always. "PHIGGA" has production from hot producer Cardo, Jay B, Kash Kartel, Selah, Alim Mo, MJ Nichols, & Foreign Allegiance. Go Phigga shows growth in his style and versatility and every track. This is most definitely one of the best underground projects out right now! Go Phigga announced he will be releasing a Deluxe Edition of the project with additional tracks that's never been heard. No exact date but he promised it would be available early 2015.

Austin, Texas lyricist, D.O.S., has been flooding the streets with his brand of traditional raw hip hop since the early 00's. His catalog is extensive and consists of several critically acclaimed projects that have featured several well established MC's like Devin The Dude, Bavu Blakes, and Planet Asia, among others. His latest offering is titled Obey The Raw and was produced entirely by Texas based producer Ruler Why. The album is what D.O.S. refers to as a "throwback album" meaning it is sonically set up to sound like an album that would have released during the golden era of hip hop. At present, D.O.S. has released two visuals from "Obey The Raw" that can be found on various blog sites as well as his YouTube page. "Obey The Raw" is available now on iTunes, CD Baby, and can be streamed on Spotify.

Houston's rising star, Chucky Orbitz along with Houston legend, Lil Flip, crash the "Pop Bandz" (Remix) featured on "Trillmatic," the forthcoming mixtape from Chucky Orbitz. The tape is Chucky's ode to his idol, Nas, whose work ethic inspires him daily. Besides Flip, the only other feature on "Trillmatic" is fellow H-town up-and-comer, DeLorean, who is also creating a solid buzz across the nation. Look for "Trillmatic" to solidify Chucky's place on the Houston music scene and beyond. The labels are's a matter of time.
