New Mixtape: E Major is… Better Than Yours

E Major is… Better Than Yours has been in a works for some time now and it’s finally here.  We’ve dropped a few different tracks from this project over the past 6 months but the time has finally come to put out the whole thing.  Filled with mostly original tracks, this was put together with some of the most talented people I know and I’m really happy with how it turned out.  I could go into a lot more detail on the process of creating this and everyone involved but instead I’ll just let the music speak for itself.


Thank you to everyone involved especially Jerome Baker III and everyone at Better Than Yours, and thank you to the fans for checking it out!  I hope to see you all this Wednesday for our happy hour at Pedx and our performances at The Ottobar.

Music Video: Rome Cee – “By Your Side”

The latest addition to the Under Sound Music family, Rome Cee is preparing to release his latest mixtape, The Extra Mile.  In preparation for the release we present his first official single/video with Under Sound Music, entitled “By Your Side.” The song and video invite us to walk with Rome through his West Baltimore neighborhood as he dodges drugs, haters, scandalous women and all of the other pitfalls that promise nothing but failure.  No matter what obstacle he is faced with, Rome Cee will no doubt come out on top.

We hope you enjoy the video. Feel free to share and let us know what you think!!!  The Extra Mile will be available through Under Sound Music’s website on April 18th.

Music Video: E Major – Massage Situation Freestyle

Over the winter I was in India escaping the cold we were experiencing in Maryland.  While I was there I wanted to take advantage of a different location and shoot a little video. I decided on this freestyle over Flying Lotus’ “Massage Situation” because it’s kind of short and sweet.  I loved this beat from the moment DJ Impulse sent it over to me.  I had to flip it, so I did a verse over it for the upcoming E Major is… Better Than Yours project, which I swear will be out SOON.  Like, SOON, soon.  Anyway, check this video and let me know what you think.  I’ve been doing a lot of editing recently and I edited this. I also shot and edited a video for Rome Cee which will be out very soon.  Stay tuned ya’ll!!!

FREE Download: Sean Armstrong and E Major – LOUDER!


Already being called “a must download” (Gowhere/Chicago Now), this 7 track EP/mixtape features Sean Armstrong (aka DJ Face of 9th Wonder’s True School DJ’s) and our own E Major trading verses over production by the late, great J Dilla.  The duo of Major and Armstrong wanted to release the tribute to the producer in February since it is frequently referred to as Dilla Month, being that it is the month Dilla was both born in and died in.  Here’s the description from the Bandcamp page:

“We put this project together in the name of J Dilla because we believe that he was truly one the best artists to ever work in Hip Hop. Dilla has touched many lives with his music and continues to in his absence. He’s inspired a whole generation of musicians and this is our way of honoring him.. through music.

-E Major and Sean Armstrong”

Coming Soon: Rome Cee – The Extra Mile

Rome Cee

I’ve posted about Rome Cee a couple of times on here.  He’s a really dope up and coming MC from Baltimore’s west side that mixes soulful instrumentals and an artistic outlook with a streetwise mentality to create something pure and original.  Rome has worked the Baltimore scene for some time now, most recently releasing his stellar Tunnel Vision (FreEP) on his Bandcamp page.  He’s been featured on the Government Names blog, as well as Morgan State Radio’s Strictly Hip Hop program.

Well, we’re happy to announce that Rome will be releasing his next project with us through Under Sound Music.  He’s been steadily working on new material and from what I’ve heard so far it’s going to outdo his previous releases which is not an easy task.  The project called The Extra Mile should be out soon.  We’ve shot a video for the single “By Your Side” and we’re in the editing process now.  Expect that some time next month.

We’ll have more from Rome soon, just keep it locked here and we’ll update you with more as we get closer to having the project in hand. And as always, thanks for rocking with us.
