Some more goodness from Topiq’s upcoming Limitless now due for release July 4th.
DJ Whoo Kid tapped Em, along with Paul Rosenberg on the phone for an impromptu interview which turned out pretty hilarious, more than anything. Topics spoken on: his eight studio LP, if he’s worked with Dre on any new material for the project, his work on Ice T’s Art of Rap documentary, Slaughterhouse and his mutual dislike with Nickel Nine (haha. jokes) Thanks to Soul Culture on the heads up.
Ashanti makes her return to music with help from a few familiar voices. BraveHeart, her new album, hits shelves August 28th.

Canadian grime kid Tre Mission drops a trippy visual for his latest joint “Hilroy” where he spits over a familiar Jamie xx production.
Pete Rock & CL Smooth’s Mecca & The Soul Brother turns 20 this month, and to celebrate Pete will be throwing a party at Manhattan’s Le Poisson Rouge tonight (June 30th). I have the honor and pleasure of opening for the legendary producer (where you think “Meka Soul” came from?), who will also bring out some special guests as well. You can grab tickets here, if you haven’t already. See you all tonight.

The actress/model who we saw play the lead role in Lil Wayne’s “How To Love” music video Chanta Patton is tonight’s sexy for your Saturday night. And although we haven’t heard or seen much from the southern girl since, we’ve collected a handful of glammy modelling flicks of the photogenic vixen down bottom.

The Parisian duo finally unveil the official visuals to their collaboration with Elzhi which we heard way back in 2011. If you haven’t yet, cop it on iTunes or pink & teal wax. Peace to Fat Beats. What up Bert & Adam?
Union releases their second video from their full length “Analogtronics”, out on Fat Beats Records. This animated video is the claymation work of Jesse Mann (@jesse_mann), who has done live projections for bands such as The Stepkids. Using only the natural elements of clay and paper, this video reflects Union’s sensibility of fusing organic elements with digital editing techniques. Enjoy the home made, organically produced laser light show.
I’m glad that Out Da Box got this interview poppin! As a huge fan of Fela (whose records I’ve been trying to track down, which proved very time and money consuming), I learned a little more insight on the Kuti empire and gained a new found respect for his son, Seun.
Out Da Box TV is proud to bring you a special new interview with Afrobeat Artist “Seun Anikulapo Kuti”. Seun is the youngest son of the Legendary Afrobeat Musician “Fela Kuti” and now performs with his Father’s well acclaimed Music Band known as “Fela’s Egypt 80”. We had the pleasure of speaking with Seun a few months ago when he made his recent tour stop in NY. In this interview, Seun takes the time to speak to us on a variety of topics, including, his mission for music, carrying on the legacy of his father, and his advice for how we as a people can achieve freedom, equality and justice. As the interview progresses “Seun” even talks to us about his view on today’s mainstream hip hop and further explains why he prefers to create his music out in the world and not in the studio. This was a very insightful interview
Every month Prie and his live band Sample will be blessing his fans all over with a new music video every month with original songs from Prie with his live band backing up we hope you people enjoy this new series and spread the word.
