"Everything" [Boaz ft. Mac Miller]

Bo drops the full project tomorrow. Below is from Billboard.

Boaz has been on his independent grind since 2003. With back to back projects under his belt -- from "Intent to Deliver" (2005) to "The Transition" (2011) -- it was only a matter of time before he caught the attention of a notorious independent label as Rostrum Records.

But don't let the signed dotted line fool you. Even with the hefty co-signs from Rostrum Records labelmates Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller and more, Boaz is hustling even more than before. Tomorrow, the Pittsburgh rapper will release his free independent album, "Bases Loaded," at 1pm EST over at Datpiff and Boaz's official page. "Bases Loaded" includes guest appearances by Wiz, Mac, ScHoolboy Q, Freeway, Chevy Woods, and GLC.

In anticipation for the album, The Juice is premiering Boaz's Mac Miller-assisted song,"Everything." Check out the Team Green Music produced track below and tell us what you think."

The article below is an excerpt from the latest Complex magazine article on Wiz Khalifa.  Below the excerpt you can find one of Wiz's latest videos that has Timebomb, Brick and is son in the video.

..."Then there’s Brian Brick, owner of the clothing store Timebomb, a staple of Pittsburgh hip-hop and one of the first places to sell Rocawear, Phat Farm, and Ecko in the City of Steel. There’s a little bit of all of them in Wiz, who is, after all, a fully tatted stoner rapper entrepreneur whose come-up put Pittsburgh hip-hop on the map.
Brick and Wiz are discussing one of Wiz’s favorite groups, Three 6 Mafia. “There are kids these days who don’t even know Juicy J’s old shit,” says Wiz. “Before, Juicy was cadences, he’s more lyrical now.”... Read the rest of the article after the jump: more.

BrokeBeat 2

MR. OWL's experimental producer showcase continues with 

July 2012 saw the premiere of MR. OWL's BROKEBEAT, a party for showcasing the best experimental producers of hip-hop and electronic music bubbling up from the underground, local and national alike.  Rising stars in futuristic hip-hop beatmaking from Queens, Columbus, Rochester and Pittsburgh converged to make Vol.1 – and its til-5am rager afterparty – a memorable night to say the least. 

BROKEBEAT is back for round 2 on Friday Sept. 28th at 6119, this time bringing the focus back home to Pittsburgh to shine light on the hardest grinding visionaries  in the local underground: FORTIFIED PHONETX, KINGPIN, OYO aka BLAKLUNG, DIVINE SEVEN, DJ NOETIK 5000 & SPAED.  These performers were handpicked as much for their cross-genre aesthetics as their raw talent.   Each producer is hauling unique studio gear onstage to perform their original music in its natural habitat, while video artist CASEY HALLAS’ visual scheme includes overhead live camera feeds so the audience can watch see exactly what the artists' hands are doing.  Of course he will also be bringing his signature style of live video remixing to the HD projectors. 

FORTIFIED PHONETX is a versatile crew who can all craft beats as easily as they can rock mics.  Each member will throw down a short set of their own production, capped off by a headline act of all three forming together.  In celebration of the release of his brand new album "High Art", heavyweight future-bap surgeon SPAED will host the festivities then close out the night by delivering the album in its entirety as part of his 2-3am late set.
