Rome Cee’s “The Extra Mile” Named Best Album by City Paper Readers

Rome Cee’s stellar album, The Extra Mile continues to still garner attention.  This time it’s been picked by the readers of Baltimore’s City Paper for best album in the publication’s yearly Best of Baltimore edition.  Check it out here.  I guess this should be no surprise as it’s one of the most solid Hip Hop albums out right now, but I do love to see how much support Rome has gotten.  He’s got a great fan base and it keeps growing.  I personally want to thank everyone that was responsible for getting the album recognized.  Thank you all for your support!

Trey R – Paper Chasin’

I’ve posted some of the homie Trey R’s stuff before.  This track is kinda ill how it has the real chilled out sample and the contrasting shuffling drums.  Trey gives his critique of snake dudes, haters and shady chicks while also boasting and making his declaration that he’s “headed for the paper.”  And who can’t get behind that?

Peep the track below, let us know what you think and follow Trey R on twitter.

Photos from the Action Figures/Brand Nubian Show

Here are some images from the Action Figures release party featuring Brand Nubian, Biz Markie, Ogun, DJ Two Teks and myself.  In my opinion Action Figures gave the best performance any of them has given separately or collectively.  There was a great crowd from the front to the back of Sonar’s warehouse space and everyone from Action Figures to Ogun to Brand Nubian fed off of that.   Minus Nine and DJ Two Teks did the warm up sets before Action Figures and Brand Nubian respectively and they both whipped the place into a frenzie.  Even if I wasn’t performing last night I would have had a great time.  This was my first time seeing Brand Nubian when they had Puba with them and that was really awesome for me.  I actually forgot how many songs that they have that really had an effect on me over the years.  It was an out and out party.  Big shouts to Pedestrian, Garth and everyone who had a hand in making it a great night.
