Well damn look at that cover art. Ha. Underrated MC (and I say that because I feel like not enough people hear his work) N-Dex drops off a little something Fo Da $umma in the form of a new album. Click below to check out a few of his singles;

My friend Modi of DCtoBC and TheGeePee recruited Top Dawg Entertainment recording artist Kendrick Lamar for a much anticipated performance at the 9:30 Club, making it his first-ever public show in the nation’s capital. The Compton standout is expected to sell out the 1200 capacity venue thanks to his loyal following in the DC metropolitan area. Kendrick will be joined on stage by fellow label mate Schoolboy Q as he cycles through his hits spanning from his early career to his most recent project, the critically acclaimed #Section80. Also sharing the spotlight for the evening are buzzing DMV natives Phil Adé and Phil Da Phuture, both signees of Grammy nominated crooner Raheem DeVaughn‘s 368 Music Group, as well as Houston’s own Ashton Travis, a lyrical mastermind recently crowned winner of the Hip-Hop Unplugged Series, hosted by Def Jam’s Lenny Santiago and MTV’s Sway. You never know who else may pop up, either…Click below for event details & ticketing:
The guys of The Dean’s List are steadily picking up fans all across the country and they’re led by the front man, Sonny Shotz. Sonny has been releasing a number of solo tracks showcasing his rhymes and this is the latest from the kid. Thanks to GMAD for the premiere.
With Dre Films and Spiff TV at his fingertips, Meek Mill decided to utilize Dre for a music video to promote his August 11th mixtape, Dream Chaser. The Philly spitter goes off on this one.
I think the media is making this song out to be some sort of brilliance – it’s really not- but it’s a solid track nonetheless and the two A-list rappers have shot/are shooting a music video for the song. Shot in Los Angeles, allegedly by Spike Jonze, you can clearly see that single artwork above. Click below for another pic:
I don’t really care for artist merchandise and this is irrelevant to those not attending Drake’s OVO Fest in Toronto this weekend, but here are some articles of clothing that’ll be for sale at the concert. I’m sure the most limited and coveted item will be the October’s Very Own jackets that his camp have been wearing for the past year or two. Made in Canada exclusively for OVOFEST 2011. Tour Jacket Made In Canada by Roots for October’s Very Own. Available 6:30pm July 31, 2011 Molson Amphitheatre, Toronto. Click below for a gallery of pics of the merch:
While in Chicago, Pusha T took some time to address Consequence and how he feels about GOOD Music versus the other crews in music.
Zero people have Consequence’s back right now. And even if there are legit behind-the-scenes issues (I don’t doubt that there are), putting out corny trailers for an upcoming diss song isn’t the way to handle it.
If you’re an Odd Future fan, it’s gonna be a hot Fall because they will be heading around the U.S. for their 2011 Golf Wang tour. Check the dates above and buy tickets asap. As far as I know, their last (short) American tour sold out fast. Thanks to Sean for the heads up.
