LISTEN TO “R&D” FEATURING KID SISTER
“This mixtape is an homage to all of my musical inspirations growing up… From Fleetwood Mac, to System of a Down, all the way to Southside Chicago Juke and Footwork. It’s as much a throwback to the early mash up days as it is a step forward for rap production. For the last 10 years I’ve been part of a creative partnership, so this is completely new and exciting territory for me going off on my own.” – Me2
LIL LONNIE X K CAMP

NEW PARTBABY VIDEO
Infectious rock n’ roll quartet PARTYBABY have been steady on the rise for some time and today they’ve released a video for “I Don’t Wanna Wait” from their forthcoming EP. The band led by Noah Gersh and Jamie Schefman say this of the video: “We got a bit sick of people asking us why we were intentionally hiding our faces or not being in our videos. Our shows can get wild so we thought we’d address both issues as best we could, with bright shiny lights in our dumb sweaty faces. Also who doesn’t like to chase a feeling every once in a while.”
