Ra Diggs, an aspiring rapper from Brooklyn, New York, has been charged with three murders.

Posted by: Scott

Ra Diggs, an aspiring rapper from Brooklyn, New York, has been charged with three murders, including one that the rapper bragged about on Twitter. The New York Daily News reports that Diggs was indicted today for murders that are connected to his Gowanus Houses drug ring. He could face the death penalty. The charges are for incidents as far back as 2001, when Frederick Brooks was murdered. Brooks was reportedly previously beaten by associates of Ra Diggs, born Ronald Herron. A later incident led to Herron reportedly bragging about a murder on Twitter, claiming that he ‘beat a body.’ “His Tweets were premature,” Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly added, “Ronald Herron and his gang terrorized a Brooklyn community for more than a decade and he temporarily got away with murder by threatening and intimidating witnesses only to return to the streets of Brooklyn to kill and kill again,â? said Brooklyn U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch

RedFox Da Arsonist Burned Down the Underground

RedFox with Da Salute

In the music game, some were destined to play.  RedFox Da Arsonist (a.k.a “RF”) began his life as Edward Joseph Swaby in Brownsville Brooklyn, NY, USA.  He was one of eight siblings to his West Indian parents, Prudence Walters & Edward Leonard Swaby. Growing up with a broken home, money troubles, and a harsh environment, RF learned the hard life the hard way eventually turning his talents loose as an M.C.

Hip hop was all around him in Queens where he moved to, and he felt connected through the history of the land and the family of Hip Hop superstars such as Run DMC. Even when away from his family at a group home, a guard on duty let him meet his personal friends in the game: Pee Wee Kirkland and Vinnie from Naughty By Nature. RF listened to Snoop Dogg, Wu-Tang, Master Ace, Nas, Biggie, Da Brat, Tupac, & even The Fugees to which he pulled his inspiration and began free-styling.

After being encouraged by a few compliments by fellow dudes at the local basketball court, RF met up with rappers Teff and Warlock to form Desert Eagles. The producer of the Crystal Lake imprint hooked them up with shows with Jadakiss and Fabulous and backstage passes and met Lil Bow Wow, Lil Romeo, & Lil Zane. In 2001, the group split up.

2004 marked a rebirth for RedFox Da Arsonist with his first solo release, “Who GOD Bless, No Man Curse” selling independently 10,000 copies. 2005 he released “The Industrial Revolution” with somewhat lesser success. In 2006, RF began an onslaught of constant shows at various clubs and venues that all led up to his 2008 album, “IR2, Corporate Conglomerate”. Things started to really pick up, and RedFox has since appeared in magazine and print, got a ringtone deal, performed at the New Jersey Music Conference, performed at Get Your Buzz Up, appeared on WebTV’s 24/7 Grind with Frankie the Boss (which is about to get picked up by Direct TV).

Red Fox Da Arsonist’ latest project is the mixtape series “Welcome To Goonsville Enemy of the State” which can be heard on Dotpiff Links: Volume 2 | Volume 3 .

Posted by: Scott

“Born to make music” The Attics; Fueg and Niz have been creating music since the age of 12. Growing up as childhood

THE ATTICS

friends, Fueg and Niz developed a brotherly bond fused by the love of making music. Starting in high school with battle rapping and free styling, they later honed their skills which gave birth to their unique sound and style. Although very urban and “new school”, The Attics also have an old school edgy style which makes them stand out from other up and coming artists.

In 2009 Fueg and Niz established “Addictive Music Group”; an independent entity, to help transition their talent into a successful career. The Attics have a host of music on the internet and are currently performing shows in their hometown (Newburgh, NY) and surrounding cities where they are well known. They pride themselves on having a great live show and prove it by being electrifying performers. Currently released projects include; “The Overdose” hosted by DJ T-Nyce, “Likka Sweet Vol. Uno” hosted by DJ Kool Kid,  and “Severe Cold” hosted by DJ T-Nyce. Which all have gotten excellent feedback and is just the beginning of what is to come from The Attics and Addictive Music.

THE ATTICS ARE ADDICTED TO SUCCESS

The Attics plan to heat up the music scene with the release of their first street album “Cold Turkey” projected for early June 2011. The LP is an epic adventure featuring brilliant instrumentation and clever, catchy lyrics with many interesting vocal collaborations. Any inquiries for The Attics can be sent to Addictivemusicgroup@gmail.com.

D-MOST IS MOST DEFINETLY READY FOR STARDOM WITH THE GLOBAL ATTACK MIXTAPE!

Posted by: Scott

The true and living result born from Hip-Hop parents with pioneer roots,

D-MOST PROMO

“D-MOST” displays an unequivocal talent of lyrical content and rap skill delivery which reveals a genuine substance of Contemporary & Classic Hip-Hop embodied within his DNA and Soul.

Straight and direct from the Motherland of Hip-Hop “D-MOST” profoundly represents The Boogie Down Bronx, New York City and the true art of rap. The appropriate tag line/slogan “Hip-Hop’s Best Kept Secret” & “The Kid With The Million Dollar Flow” truthfully and correctly describe and answer the marketability and void of True School Hip-Hop Artistry for the 21st Century.

The style, flow and showmanship of “D-MOST” has been compared to the combined sounds and works of Fabulous, 50 Cent and JAY-Z collectively, yet effortlessly, his demeanor and tenure of work proves to be originally creative and illustrates a deep rooted essence of three generations of Hip-Hop Greatness. D-Most conveys and displays a modern day masterfulness of today’s reputable pulse and fashionable vibe of Street-Hustler-Gangster-Thug-Glam-Life-Code respectfully. All while harboring a morale fiber and quality fabric of conscious humility for today’s Hip-Hop audiences and critics alike.

D-MOST

Simply put – “D-MOST”, has rhymed since he was five years old has been groomed since birth and is emphatically becoming a voice in the ranks of Hip-Hop.

Global Attack MixTape is the first mix tape series to bring urban music together from around the globe on one project – from both successful and up-and-coming artists. For more information, visit www.GlobalAttackMixTapes.com or stay tuned in the music news.

RAEKWON THE CHEF – SHAOLIN VS. WU-TANG ALBUM REVIEW

Posted by: Scott

For three weeks now every Wu related blog or forum has been discussing and posting opinions on Rae’s new album as if

chef RAEKWON

their lives depended on it. Fans are going back and forth on topics such as the lyrics, the type of beats, song titles, the kung fu samples, the features, whether this album is better than OBFCL II or not, if Rae delivered as promised when he first mentioned this project after the 8 Diagrams dispute …

To be honest I’ve been keeping away from all of that since it started, to keep my view on “Shaolin vs Wu Tang” unaffected. Once the album arrived I grabbed some essential provisions, hung a “Do NOT disturb” sign at my Wu Cave, kissed the Mrs. and kids goodbye and went underground with it for about two weeks … to resurface this morning with the finished review ( and some strange rash on my back from sleeping on my “not-so-ergonomic-as-expected-pile of moss” ).

Where the new album stands in comparison to OBFCL I and whether “OBFCL II” or “Shaolin vs Wu tang” can now be labeled ‘best post OBFCL’ album from Raekwon are things that really have to wait to be answered fairly. The only question that I needed to get answered during my stay in Caveland was if Rae had managed to follow up his comeback album OBFCL II with another solid release …
