Guru The Street Scriptures (V7.0) 04|25|2005

The Baldheaded man is live and kickin' on the solo-tip again. The previous Guru solo-album left many with a double feeling, so this new installment is kinda highly anticipated (especially after critics were this-n-thattin' about the artwork). 'The Street Scriptures' will have contributions from Jean Grae, Kweli, Doo Wop, Styles P, B-Real and more...

MED Push Comes To Shove 04|21|2005

Yeah, it's been pushed back a few times, but now it's really about to drop! The MED aka Medaphoar debut album 'Push Comes To Shove' coming end May. Producers include: Madlib, J Dilla, Just Blaze, Oh No and MC guests include Diamond D. I recall making the shortest chat ever with this cat when he asked me where the bathroom was at on Stones Throw tour. My answer was so stupid that i'm obligated to cop this album. Sure i won't regret.

C-Rayz Walz Year Of The Beast 04|04|2005
