With a new album on the way, I finally let loose a visual to my self produced single "This Girl From High School" Ft. Summit 103. My upcoming album Underground With Commercial Appeal is set for release on July 21, 2017 and features Sadat X, Chi-Ali, Skyzoo, Guilty Simpson, Torae and more. This will be my first official album release in over 10 years and I am supper excited. As an incentive I am also on a mission to reach my goal weight of 199lbs by doing CrossFit & eating healthy by 7/21/17. #SeeYouInJuly

Brooklyn & Manhattan connect in a major way with this high energy record, "On Some Other...". Produced by G-Whiz, the track finds battle rap champ Cortez going line for line with Young P Livin Proof & producer/emcee Fokis. The trio trade bars over a thunderous Piano and bass line, accompanied by some hard hitting drums.
