Willow has come a long way since “Whip My Hair.” The free-spirited Smith, who turns 14 on Halloween, floats above the clouds on her vibey freestyle “Female Energy,” which borrows lyrics from Jhené Aiko’s “The Pressure.”

“It’s really out of my control / How you feel is not my problem,” coos Willow.

Her EP 3 hits iTunes on November 10 featuring three new tracks, which she debuted last week at the Fader Fort during the CMJ Festival in Brooklyn.

"J.Crossover" A Jamal Crawford Documentary | The Crossover King Is a True Role Model



“J.Crossover” A Jamal Crawford Documentary | The Crossover King Is a True Role Model

We had the pleasure of spending our summer in Seattle with the LA Clippers’ Jamal Crawford as he hosted his annual Seattle Pro-Am league. For two months, we captured highlights and conducted interviews with Pro-Am players like Isaiah Thomas & Tony Wroten as well as Seattle basketball legends like Gary Payton and Brandon Roy who talked to us about Jamal and how committed he is to giving back to his community.

We also talked to Jamal about his basketball journey that started at home with a yellow Dr J basketball to playing pick-up games with the original Lob City crew of Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp while Crawford was still in high school to the University of Michigan and then to the NBA where he has been breaking records and throwing lobs to Blake Griffin as part of the modern day Lob City.

Cazal Organism | Bubbles (So High) ft. K-Natural and Dezi Paige



Cazal Organism | Bubbles (So High) ft. K-Natural and Dezi Paige

Directed by: Dina Juntila

“Bubbles (So High)” is the very latest single from Cazal Organism to drop on Delicious Vinyl. Featuring vocals from singer Dezi Paige and rapper K-Natural, the song talks to listeners of allowing everyday LA life to wash over you and enjoying the high that it brings. The production boasts Cazal’s signature touch as soaring foamy synths are grounded by whirring, hip-hop accented beats.

The accompanying music video is a fittingly dream-like visualization of the song’s sudsy sentiment and celestial groove. Directed by Dina Juntila, the video sees Paige and K-Natural drive around Los Angeles in a kaleidoscopic homage to California’s trippy side.

“Bubbles (So High)” is the first single from Cazal Organism’s forthcoming, yet-to-be-titled, EP. With the direction of Michael Ross, aka Mike Floss, the EP will see the jazzier edge of Cazal’s production style complimented by collaborations with an array of local talent including the likes of Casey Veggies, Dezi Paige, Joe Styles and K-Natural. -- Alice Price-Styles

PLG | Learn Truth



Propaganda in the Lost Generation (PLG) is a hip-hop duo from Long Island, NY. Propaganda is the manipulation of media to promote a particular viewpoint; music is the media, hip-hop is the culture.

While growing up in Hollis, Queens and moving out the Long Island, PLG has always been surrounded by hip-hop; it became a lifestyle. Since then the mission has been to refine and master the art and resurrect it back to its true form with a smooth flow, dope lyrics, and headboppin' beats. Both emcees (Born G.O.D. and Jayy Geee) are brothers that offer different styles that come together on a track. Their chemistry masterfully comes together on every song.

After creating a buzz on their Soundcloud (www.soundcloud.com/propaganda_lg) PLG is working on their first official project called "Preservers of the Headbop". They've released one track off the mixtape "Learn Truth". This is only the beginning for these talented emcees as they continue their journey.

The Arsonists | The Session



Order the limited Orange 7” here:
http://www.getondown.com/album.php?id...

Available for the first time on limited edition orange 7" vinyl.
"The Session" catapulted The Arsonists to one of the pillars of the then new bubbling indy scene that was coming out of New York in the early to mid 90’s. With heavy play on the famed Stretch Armstrong show (hosted by Bobbito – who initially released the song on his legendary Fondle ‘Em Records) the song stood out showcasing the charismatic MC’s over an infectious jazzy bassline. Part Leaders of the New School, part Native Tongues , “The Session” was a special blend of originality that was lacking in the climate of Hip Hop at the time of its release.

For the B Side with “Halloween” The Arsonists take things conceptually pointing out the many “masks” people wear stating that “every day’s like Halloween/nothing’s what it seems” over an equally powerful piano laced beat. The single overall was a breath of fresh air and gave Hip Hop fans a taste of what was lacking – and an idea of great things to come from The Arsonists.

About uMaNg & B.B.Z. Darney and "The Black Rose Certificate":

With two full-length albums already under their belts that garnered them buzz in the underground ("Lasting Impressions" & "The Revisited"), New Jersey originated emcee uMaNg, reunites with Swedish producer B.B.Z. Darney ("The Boom Bappin' Zombie"), to complete their trilogy of albums with their label debut on Ill Adrenaline Records entitled, "The Black Rose Certificate."

Shortly after inking a deal with the label, the next eight months would find uMaNg & B.B.Z. embarking on a musical journey that would result in their most personal & brutally honest record to date. The title "The Black Rose Certificate", while a representation of many a symbolism, reflects the duo's state of mind, the hand they've been dealt as typecasts in society. Since being impossible to produce a "black rose" also stands for purest devotion. A kind of devotion that uMaNg & B.B.Z. put forth in their respected crafts.

Over the course of 14 tracks, the duo sonically stick to their traditional "boom-bap" roots, whilst also bringing sounds that range from "darker" to "aggressive", to even more "melancholic". The production B.B.Z. Darney showcases is heavier, more conceptual than previous releases. uMaNg has been notable throughout his career for being a clever & witty, punchline heavy emcee. While staying true to his stylings on the mic, he gets deeper & more transparent than past albums have suggested. For every braggadocious track, there is another where the Jersey emcee bares his soul through the pen, opening up about past discretions, family HIStory, amongst other topics on the emcee's mind. Also unlike "Lasting Impressions" & "The Revisited", that found the duo being the lone contributors to their works alongside the legendary DJ Grazzhoppa, they now bring along with them close collaborators as well as in-label artists. The album features tracks from the likes of Brick City veteran and close Artifacts affiliate Beneficence, Purpose of the Tragic Allies camp, close friends HexOne & Tek-nition of the critically acclaimed duo Epidemic, and Hashfinger to lend their talents and further enhance the album's disposition.

Dej Loaf Talks Detroit, Father's Murder & Big Break



Up and coming "Try Me" rapper Dej Loaf sat down with VladTV correspondent Jenny Boom Boom and briefly discussed growing up in Detroit, losing her father at a young age and how "Try Me" blew up after a few strokes of bad luck.

Dej reveals that she grew up in a single parent home with her two brothers, raised by their mother after their father was murdered in the projects where they lived at the time. She says she greatly admires her mother who is one of the strongest people she knows and is her number one fan who's always supported her career ambitions.

The Detroit native also spoke of working as a cleaner for Chrysler corporate offices, saying the last straw for her was scrubbing floors with a toothbrush. She then quit that job and began taking music seriously, without making much progress initially. She debated getting back to the job market, but instead recorded "Try Me" and shared it on Soundcloud. The track immediately spread and now has labels bidding for the young star.
