After nearly a year without releasing a new track, Mr. High Definition is BACK AT IT with a new masterpiece featuring one of the dopest hip-hop groups in the game, God’s illa. Back At It (For the People) is a soulful, drum heavy track produced by the High Definition Society’s own, Str8 Beatz. The song takes aim at rappers and entertainers who will do/say anything for that all mighty dollar. The four emcees take the stance that they are hear for a bigger purpose. Enjoy!
Hip-hop duo The Other Guys, return from the DMV area with their new single “When the music stops” featuring one of DC’s finest emcee’s, Substantial. The Other Guys have been making waves in independent hip-hop for some time now as a production team. After producing for Indie hip-hop heavyweights like Don Will of Tanya Morgan, Fresh Daily, Gods’Illa, and even Substantial himself, they now create what Stephanie Nicole Jones from the LA Examiner calls “a passionate trip to familiar hip hop roots, their lyrics are as fresh and original as ever. With well-invested production and very original, feel-good vibes.” The new single is off their upcoming album “The Other Album” and if you’re looking for high quality hip-hop than look no further.
