What’s good Amped Nation?!?! It’s the One Man Gang with some hot new music and vids for you fresh off the Twitter wire. You don’t want to miss this! Get the day kicked off proper with new hits from Jenny Bapst, Picasso De’ France, Dr. E, Hello Phones, Nsikak and the League of Extraordinary Spitters.
Jenny Bapst’s new vid “Everybody” is outstanding. It has a late 90’s feel to it but retains that fresh, modern flair. Rapper Hazel Hagen drops eight hot bars on the bridge, cementing the crossover appeal of the record. I almost forgot to mention, there’s plenty of tasteful eye candy to look at!

Picasso De’France’s new video “Running” is crazy good! It’s gritty, grimy, in your face goodness. His delivery, flow and commandeering gruff vocals are intense. The Willie Hutch inspired track was produced with a surgeon’s precision and the video (directed by Fresh P) syncs perfectly with Picasso’s survivalist lyrics. Dope… need I say more?

We’re no stranger to Dr. E and her amazing talents. So if you haven’t heard of her yet, you soon will on a grand commercial stage. Her new single, “Deaky” from her forthcoming release Songs for the Struggle is a powerful song and everyone will benefit from her compelling words of wisdom. Follow her on Twitter: @DoctaE1
I gotta thank @DonnaFran for putting us on to the awesome Electro band Hello Phones. Their video “The One” is visually appealing and the music is banging! The retro/80’s inspired theme traverses between the sights and sounds and makes for a unique audio/visual experience. It won’t be long before we see this video played repeatedly on a variety of mainstream stations. Follow them on Twitter: @hellophonesPlease enter the url to a Vimeo video.
Mid-West emcee Nsikak (I still can’t pronounce this guy’s name right… my bad) is as smooth as a fresh set of satin sheets on hos new single, “Good Vibes”. The 3rdWorldInc representer drops some lyrical gems on this free-flowing laid back single. Suave vocalist Amanda Yan does a tremendous job on the hook. This is a song that you won’t be able to stop listening to! Follow them on Twitter: @N_Credible and @manda_yan
And last but definitely not least are the mighty marvels of the mic, emerging West Coast Hip-Hop All-Stars, the League of Extraordinary Spitters. It gets no better than this. Their new self-titled release covers a lot of ground and has something for everybody. From thought-provoking storylines to illustrious rhymes, if you need an alternative to the bullshit the mainstream calls Hip-Hop or rappers with LIL in their name; these guys have exactly what you need.
