Real talk, even though it’s not trying to be, this has to be the most authentic winter-appropriate hip-hop song I’ve ever heard (sorry Run-DMC & Dipset lol).

“..the record shows, I took the blows and did it My Way!” - Frank Sinatra
I feel blessed. Many doubted, but many more believed!
I’m amazed at how a single moment in time, can make the world of a difference to so many on different levels. Just last week, in a BET interview for their “Music Matters” campaign, I had the chance to express why music matters to me; This week that very interview was displayed across television screens worldwide!
On Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010 I was blessed with an opportunity of a lifetime – to introduce myself and my music to world, the only way i knew how – My Way. A series of live performances, a few candid flicks and interviews, and lastly the debut of my very first single and music video “Fade Away” on BET’s 106 & Park as the New Joint of the Day! For the first time in my life, I realized I was living my Dream. Through all of the disappointments, obstacles, and nightmares, a single moment in time where one realizes one of their dreams, makes it all worthwhile.
Much love and appreciation to BET’s Terrance Clayton, Kelly Griffin, Belinda Hill, and staff for their support & integrity. Bryan, Jon, Dave G., and Philthy, please continue to rock with me on this journey! My bro Murdock has been a true asset to the movement, and all this would not be possible without JANO, Hanan, Claire, Josie, Topsy, Jeremy, Aaron, Hayden, Adriana, Slick, and the rest of the High Style Society & elasme.
Most of you I have never met, some are old friends who’ve managed to stay close over the years, and a few of of you are my relatives. If nothing else, I ask that you see this as a testament to what passion, sacrifice & dedication can bring your lives – Keep Dreaming!
Your continued support means the world to me, and I look forward to sharing much more with you throughout this life, and beyond.
Let’s Continue to Make History!

Deejays you get the Dirty, Clean, Instrumental & Acapella.
After leaking a couple joints off it, Colin Munroe drops his complete Revox Suite (Vol. 1) – a 5 song EP of sorts featuring his re-interpretations/remixes of some choice selections. Tracklist under the hood.
Without further ado, I present the completed Revox Suite – Vol. 1 for your listening pleasure. In addition to the Sky Ferreira & La Roux X Nicki Minaj revoxes that you might have heard already, there are also vocal remixes of songs by the Jackson 5, Paramore and Bob Dylan.
The Revox Suite sounds pretty unlike any project I’ve ever heard. I hope it encourages more people to think about bending and breaking musical barriers. Thank you for indulging the Unsung Hero in another one of my adventures. Now on to the next one.
If you like what you hear, please spread the word and encourage fans to download The Revox Suite (www.ColinMunroe.com) today in exchange for an email address. (320kbps) at

We got a snippet yesterday, now here goes a longer version (w/ tags). Em has a very random part on this, so hopefully it’s not the full version and more like some random splice. Lloyd Banks’ Hunger For More 2 drops November 22nd (pre-order on iTunes).
Dope likkle trailer for what looks to be a promising documentary put together by Creamworld Magazine and P. Reign. The doc is about P’s experience opening up for Drake on tour and coincides with the release of his new mixtape which just dropped the other day (below).
The official documentary drops mid November. It will give you a look at what it is like to tour with drake and what life on the road is like as a new artist.
Promoters take note. Start at a small location. Grind. Move to a bigger location when your night organically grows and can no longer fit in the place where you started. Keep grinding. This is the story thus far of my celebrity crush, Tika Simone (hi Bambi, hi Andreena), and her Intimate & Interactive nights. This week’s event should be completely out of control as Trixx is doing a set and there’s an official Tika Simone roast taking place to celebrate her birthday (LMAO).
Anyways, take note of the new location! See you Friday!
