Toronto native L follows up his two summer release “Respect” with his 1st Official single “Past Due” produced by newcomer Nomadic Soul. The single will be available for free download on L’s site www.12thltettermusic.wordpress.com at 12 Noon on October 12th.
Drizzy & 40 pay homage to TLC’s “Fan Mail” with what is apparently the first joint off his upcoming R&B Mixtape – “It’s Never Enough”.
I think part of what gives Drake the winning hand when it comes to crossing genres is, unlike most hip-hop artists, he plays the R&B card with a complete commitment to, and genuine respect for, the genre. Yeah he does it ‘for the ladies’ but make no mistake the kid does it cuz he loves R&B. Not just the R&B that gets a hip-hop credibility pass (D’angelo, Jodeci, Bilal or any of the progressive, neo-souly, left field stuff) but R&B period. Why that, historically speaking, has been such a testosterone stretch for hip-hop heads has always been beyond me but I appreciate the example Aubrey’s setting.
Since the release of the critically lauded ‘Karmageddon’ on Lastgang Records, Peter-John has been a busy man.
After touring with the eminent MIA, impressive performances with such renowned artists as K-OS, Santo Gold, Down With Webster and MSTRKRFT, Peter-John of electro/hip hop trio ‘Let’s Go to War’ has released the highly anticipated single from his forthcoming solo EP, ‘PTRJON’.
‘Addicted’ Produced by Smasher (London, UK) & AL-P of MSTRKRFT, is the first taste in a series of upcoming tracks due for future release. A diverse fusion of Electro/Hip Hop/Pop, Peter-John has been hard at work in the studio concocting fresh tracks to set a new precedent on the dance floor come 2011.
The DubStep/Electro Crossover single, ‘Addicted’ is available to download free for a limited time!
