RAtheMC– Heart of a Champion

By Urbansocialight

Fresh off the plane from the Motherland, I made my way to the listening party for our girl RAtheMC and her new LP “Heart of a Champion”.  I have to say I’m in love with the new project.  RA is now down with the Studio 43 movement and it seems like a match made in hip-hop heaven.  Her slick rhymes over AB the PRO beats are magic!  Not only does she give us the hard hitting verses of hip-hop veteran but she sings like a hummingbird in spring.   Before the end of the night I knew all the words to chorus of “One Shot”.   It’s sort of addictive.

Heart of a Champion” just dropped Tuesday on DJBooth.net and has already garnished features on Washingtonpost.com and ABC 7’s website. Not to mention RA had the honor of performing with the legend Nas on Sunday night.  The CNB fam has been following her for a long time and is really proud to see her come so far!

Be sure to download the mixtape and support RAtheMC!  Follow her on Twitter @RAtheMC and #HeartofaChampion!!

Gordo Brega- Monster

By Urbansocialight

Gordo Brega is one of ReneeWoods favorite DMV rappers!  Even before she ever heard his rap, she predicted that he was a beast! She was right, in fact he’s a MONSTER.  I am very impressed and I’m so proud of the DMV; we are on the cusp of something HUGE!  Studio 43 has done it again, this Monster of a track confirms it!  Shouts to BuBu who produced the track.  Download/Stream Gordo Brega Monster.

XO- Blah Blah

By Urbansocialight

One of the original crabz that we’ve wanted to blow XO just dropped his third video of the album ONE ONE TEN.  I’m in love the with video! It’s shot in the streets of the D.C. and is really visually stimulating, it keeps you watching! Shouts to Studio 43 and 1st Impression for this one.   Good look…no GREAT LOOK!  In case you haven’t already: Download XO-ONE ONE TEN.

X.O. ~ Do It

XOnew

By Urbansocialight

This is a new track from a CrabzInaBarrel.com fav, X.O. His new track is called “Do It” and X.O. is telling us why he does what he does so well. Earlier this week The Washington Post wrote about the now infamous 9:30 Club show, saying that X.O. (and Kingpen Slim) “showed great potential”. They’re just reinforcing what the rest of us already know! This track is the first leak off of X.O.’s upcoming project “One One Ten”. Enjoy, cuz he’s doing it for you!
