New track from B.I.L.L.A.H. this is what he had to say.
"Little Known fact: Que Billah was the 3rd member of Kriss Kross but got kicked out the group because he was way taller than both Kris's and Jermaine Dupri. Needless to say Jermaine Durpri wasn't feeling that. Rumor has it that the whole Totally Krossed Out movement was Billah's idea. So here are Que Billah's original verses from the Classic Hit Jump. TRUE STORY ALL LIES
Class President began as just an idea back in September, but with the help of 11 other classmates and our teacher (DJ RTC of Ruby Hornet), this album became a reality. Thanks to Soundscape Studios who donated studio time and RubyHornet, AEMMP was able to record & master the album with some outside support.

Two new writings from PromoDave on this Poetic Monday. The first is titled Lost In Love and the second is Letter To Life. Read and comment below.
Lost In Love
Being you, that’s when the state of life is much more beautifulBut within each of us is the desire to truly be desirableSo we’re taught to feel the need to change to appeal to those we seekBut if the search is mutual, the true, unchanged state of being is what would create the bondOne that wants you for a part of you will never need youWhen giving 100% dedication, the 50% being returned looks greater than it really isThe want for love tends to overwhelm a sensible individual’s normal characteristicsIndividuality is surrendered and destroyed in the creation of a false unityWhen seeking to save another, don’t lose yourselfSelf value is just as important to a relationship as adoration for your partnerNever be afraid to wait on love; instead be terrified of rushing past your beliefs for temporary satisfactionJust as that individual wasn’t there to make your heart better, they won’t be there to pick up the broken piecesLove can be the utmost connection, when it is bridged between hearts and not just body partsDon’t try to understand men or women as a whole, as it’s an impossible taskJust find the one woman or man worth being lost in love and dedicated to growth with

MC Squair Blaq tells a story of a man who looses his employment to outsourcing, then while heading to the unemployment office his car breaks down and to top it all off after he finally makes it home he discovers that his personal belongings were thrown in the dumpster by a former girlfriend. The album produced and mixed by Mulatto Patriot has plenty of warm summertime sample based production infused with a good amount of live instrumentation. The 16 track Album features Psalm One, Pugs Atomz, Primeridian, Neak, S-Star and Charlie Coffeen of Sidewalkchalk, Kiara Shackelford, Lester Jay, Chris Paquette, The Fail, DJ Limbz & DJ Mr. Krime. Album Artwork by Enzo Moscarella.
This visual is the happy ending to a dating spree that simply sucked! It turns out that Pinky Tuscadero was right under Rashid Hadee's nose all along, but in life, timing is everything and its good to see it worked out in his favor. The entire visual campaign (as well as the album) was extremely creative. The Coolest Chic finds Rashid Hadee in the midst of a hang out session at his apartment with the fellas (who happen to be notable Chicago artists and producer Sincerely Yours, Neak & Slot-A). On his way back into his apartment building, he bumps into a beautiful young lady that looks vaguely familiar who turns out to be exactly what he's been searching for; The Coolest Chic.
