Valholla Records continues their winning streak on the south Florida music scene. Kirby Maurier just won Female R and B artist of the year for the second consecutive year in a row at the "Best in Dade Awards Show". And Now this. Artist / Producer Vegas released his latest Ep entitled "A.C.O.T" (A Collection Of Thoughts). And ummm Ima say the man's thoughts are deep. A far cry from the traditional trapstar antics and bass heavy sound too often associated with Dade county hip hop artists, Vegas takes you on a journey into a powerful mind. Reflective and insightful, you can be sure to take something of value from A.C.O.T. If he gets pennies for his thoughts he is surely on the road to riches Oh and did we mention he produces too having co produced for the likes of Ne-yo, Ricky Rozay and Mario to name a few.

Newport News, Va Native Phil The Thrill is quite likely to be the latest out of a long line of talent to come out of Virginia and ransack the mainstream music scene. His following up there is unbelievable and the soulful MC is poised to takeover the pilot seat of the Virginia Hip Hop Scene with his Debut Album BARELY AWAKE. It seems like just yesterday we were balling in Bay Rivers District rivalry games. The man grew from a star point guard to a future hip hop star. Can't do anything but salute this young man right here as you don't see too many people do major things where we're from. Below is a tracklist and a link to the download.

Confidence & Tommy iLL Figure : two rappers from West Chester PA. Look Up is their first official music video off their upcoming mixtape "Mission 101" which is dropping on Halloween.
... here's the latest shxt from Rocky for y'all to start the weekend out to. Couldn't believe that Sony/RCA just signed him for a cool ass $3 Million in which $1.7 Million will go towards his solo output and $1.3 will go into developing his a group label, ASAP Worldwide. With all this being said, LiveLoveA$AP is almost finished, so jam to this shxt...
... these are pretty fxckin ridiculous bro. This max orange colorway for the Nike Air Max Uptempo 2's bring back that early 90's steez, when all red Nike basketball kicks were the shxt. Expect to see these next month at House Of Hoops locations ...
... with all the hype around the newfound Harlem glory, A$AP Rocky get an interview with AllHipHop to speak about doing some film directing for Danny Brown, and also a lil lecture that comedian Dave Chappelle gave him recently ...
... I didn't really wana post this due to the fact that I wanted to wait til Tuesday to buy the shxt. I'm sure there's probably a leak of the album somewhere on Google, but really tho shunnn.. I won't allow myself to not pay respect to the Homey and buy the album. But for those who want a taste *pause* of what this album might be like, jam out to this shxt ...
... *pause* and all that, but the homey Theophilus got hella steez tho. Picture above he was spotted performing in a fresh pair of Nike Air Mags.. guess he was one of the 1500 that purchased a pair through the auction. But then again, it's possible that he got the shoe for the $Free.99. Don't let me run across a few stacks ...
... this just a lil preview of the LBJ 9 Lows cuts which are expected to drop next year, 2012. I wouldn't say these things are too pleasing to the eyeball on the appearance of the shoe.. but then again these are only catalog photos. We'll just have to wait and see em in person... I'm definitely feelin that solar colorway tho ! via TSG

... Big Sean landed a nice lil endorsement deal with Adidas, and has been seen in their kicks all the time, doing commercials and all that. This video is a promo for the Finally Originals mixtape which has either dropped already or expected to drop soon. All I know is Ima need someone to find me those Snakeskin Shelltoe's ASAP !!!

Some boi ah go dead today! Mawd new shxt from Bounty an Mobb Deep off there new up coming album "Black Cocaine"...
... the homey Jada will forever be Top 5 Dead Or Alive in my book #nobromo. But homey been doing his thing since they was in the background of Mariah Carey's video rockin the shiny jumpsuits. And now French Montana is on the takeover for NYC.. all types of ignant shxt goin on in this new tune. Hear em body this OG Mobb Deep shxt.
... on some realness tho, I almost forgot Wiz was rappin for a lil minute. I haven't really heard anything new like that, or at least nothing to catch my attention. I guess that $11 Million yearly salary and #badbxtch you see with him is enough for the homey to sit comfortable.. just don't lose the fans in the process #imjustsayin. Here's the homey over some of the MMG's fire-est beats out right now..Wale's "Bait" and Meek Millz "House Party
... I dunno where all of this Foam action is coming from, but earlier today I gave you a glimpse of them "Metallic Red" Foam One's. Now we got word that these wild things might hit the streets as well. It's like they integrated every Foamposite colorway into one pair, creating these "What The Foams". Not sure how to feel about em yet, but since they're Foams, they'll most likely get a thumbs up closer to the release date.. if there is a release date...

Mad this shxt not coming to my city..smh
"After a year of planning the 2nd annual Smokers Club Tour we took to the road for week 1. Meth brought out Red, DZA’s hairline disappeared, Shiest Bubz hosted the shows with Cinematic Sidekick Cuzzin Todd & I decided to grip some wood wheel at a random Walmart while a hater chased me. There is also some footage of 1 our bus drivers and tour manager extraordinaire Dutchington talkin’ his shit about the tour so far. Roll up, Smoke n Joke do whatever it is you do but 1 thing is mandatory bring yo muthafuckin lungs with ya! GoodTalk…. O & all videos shot by Steve-ography if it didn’t come from him it ain’t official."
Over the weekend, Neako performed at his second show for CMJ, this time at Gramercy Theatre for the “Kendrick Lamar + Friends CMJ Showcase”. Neako & The World Music Group rush the stage with intense energy to bring you a live performance of "2SS" which can be found on Neako's most recent mixtape...
"The Number 23"
LVLYSL x 2SS x 3F2+S x TGOD x Zebra
.... yeaahhhhh b, it's about to be a fxcking wrap whenever these touch the streets. The past year alone, we've seen some of the meanest colorways for the Nike Air Foamposite models, whether it being the Pro's or the original One's. We've had plenty of success when it comes to this shoe.. and they have to be one of the most durable kicks know to man-kind. Now, Nike had introduced this raw Metallic Red colorway for us to beast over, I know you remember when the all Red Foam Pro's dropped back in High School days (.. early 2000s) but this time they added the color to the Foam One model. No word on release date information yet, so just stay in tuned...

... I'm sure much of you are in recovery from #thenightbefore, whether you were vibin' with your favorite liq' in the crib with some of the homeys or poppin' bottles of Rozay and Ciroc with the sparklers at the club. Sunday is easy day, relax and enjoy ...
