When Cape Cowen (Onry Ozzborn) and Zavala came to Fake Four, Inc. with their new Dark Time Sunshine project, they had 30 incredible songs already recorded that would become part of BELIEVEYOUME and Vessel. Cornucopia is a tour CD that they released this year that completes that original, inspired run of songs. Bangers like “We Rule” prove that this is far more than just a tour only release, but the final installment of a trill-ogy.
This album is comprised of unreleased songs recorded during the BelieveYOUME/Vessel Sessions. Production was limited to 500 physical copies. It was originally released in 2010, now it is finally being digitally released (for FREE) as part of this December’s “FAKE FOUR FREE FRIDAYS”!
Sixo is an indie hip hop aficionado and professional dirt bike racer from Ft. Worth, TX who has been dabbling in beat making since the early 2000s. After being debilitated by some serious racing injuries, Sixo decided to hone in on his music production craft and advance his own sound. The songs he created with the group “Imaginary Friends” lead LA based rappers such The Shapeshifters, 2Mex and Ceschi to pay attention and collaborate with him on his first solo venture in 2006. Now in 2012 Sixo has truly developed his style and has worked closely with Fake Four Inc. to put together a collection of hip hop bangers featuring Fake Four artists such as Awol One, Sole, Myka 9, Onry Ozzborn, Gregory Pepper, Ceschi and more!
“The Leap Year” is my first real studio album, but my seventh project release since beginning this journey. I believe its my best work yet. Most focused project. Its an album about the leaps and bounds taken by myself in the past year. In music and in my personal behavior and growth has a man. I have been believing and achieving for the past five years and just last year I finally got to pursue a long time dream of mine. Making music. Making things happen to be real about the situation. Progressing past “rappers”, entertainers, artist who have been in this business and “game” for far longer. “The Leap Year” displays my love and passion for “hip hop” in its entirety. I truly believe I have created something special for ya’ll to listen to and I really hope you enjoy it as much as I do. So on July 24th be here. “The Leap Year” had arrived.
I have chosen to release this project 3 months early. I chose to do this because I recorded the album in November 2011 and to me its old. For me the album is fantastic and the “love” of my hip hop marriage so far, don’t get me wrong, I just feel it needs to be heard and enjoyed by the people. Again music to me is for the people who listen, not the people who critique it. Please do enjoy I put A LOT into this project. Thanks. EN
Magnificent Ruffians present the EXTRA CREDIT album! Featuring Awol One, Blak King, Owbese Emcee, Chainsaw Mike and King Jesk. The theme of this album is education. Each song is inspired by some type of class one might take in school. We took the course title and flipped it into some dope hip hop for all the Mag Ruff fans out there. Pay close attention to the samples on this album. Many of them have something to do with a movie that had school involved in it, in one way or another. As far as the samples go, this is defiantly going to be a classic album! Download it, and take a journey back in time to when people learned something new everyday and the sky was the limit. Peace!

Fort Worth producer Sixo presents the EKP Pictures-produced music video for “God Cops” featuring Poindexter and Heir Max. “God Cops” is featured on Tracking Perception, Sixo’s eight-song EP featuring former Anticon member Sole, AWOL One, Onry Ozzborn, Ceschi and Gregory Pepper. “When my life partner went to NYC, she came back with a story,” says Sixo about the song’s beginnings. “She’d get off the subway to come home and the same corner boy was there every time. After a couple days, she came to expect him. One day, he wasn’t there, and she was a bit worried. ‘What happened? What’s going on?’ That sorta thing. And it dawned on me while she was telling me the story that that’s exactly the feeling society wants us to get from police. We’re supposed to be afraid of drug dealers, even though they rarely hurt anyone but each other and we’re supposed to trust and feel safe around cops, even though their job is not to keep us safe, but to keep us obedient.”

If it’s banging beats, witty lyrics and fresh styles you’re looking for, then sit back, hit play, and enjoy the ride!
