Rapper Denzil Porter (@DenzilPorter) releases his newest single "Kanye West" off his upcoming project Home Made Music.
"Kanye West", produced by Mark XLnce, was inspired by the stereotypical New York City resident. New Yorkers: hardworking, tough and outspoken are often viewed to those outside of the city as just plain assholes. Denzil explains, "I feel like it's just in our blood to do what we do and say what we say when we want to. Although we look at it as how we live, outsiders look at is as rude and obnoxious".

Jermaine from "The Ville" surprises random New Yorkers lucky enough to be within earshot of his microphone when he performed a record off of his debut album Cole World: The Sideline Story, currently in stores, in the infamous Union Square Park.
Great performance and introduction to those who might not be familiar with St. John's University alum's work. Always great to see an artist in the streets of NYC enjoying its heartbeat.

Wow! If we have been anticipating the implementation of a greatly hued Fall/Winter trainer our prayers have been answered!
Brand Nike has blessed us with their Nike Air Trainer SC II “Deep Burgundy” model. Featuring a deep burgundy color way that meshes well with all the earth tones that you desire this season, as wells as a nubuck and leather mixed upper with black accents on the branding and liner, we see a great design with an even greater color way ready to hit shelves soon.
Pick yourself up a pair now for $110 USD via Premier.
You have a brand with a cult following in the boardroom as well as the streets. You get the brand officially situated on two coasts as well in Japan. You bring the brand to a demographic that has been wanting to see it manifest in the brick and mortar flesh for years. Then you win and then you win some more.
This has been the overall method to the madness for one of our beloved, as well as overly hyped, brands Supreme. They kicked off the grand opening of their LDN store with performances from Ghostface Killah and a bevy of celebs and socialites in the building.
The grind pays.

*The good folks over at The Real Hip-Hop Head take a moment to give you a brief synopsis behind the Nasir fronted treasure.
The Lost Albums: Complete Series
10 Discs - 170 Tracks
Intro: This collection is a Nas' fans DREAM COME TRUE. If you ask Hip-Hop heads, "Who is the greatest rapper of all-time?", Nas is the most common answer you'll get. He dropped Illmatic in 1994, arguably the greatest Hip-Hop album, and has released 9 studio LP's since (if you include the wonderful The Lost Tapes) and 3 more collaboration albums (The Firm, Distant Relatives, QB's Finest).
After nearly 20 years in the game, Nas has also amassed quite a collection of underground material, unreleased tracks, and rare songs from soundtracks and compilations. Most of these songs are the quality we have come to expect from Nas. However, unless they've scoured the internet for rare tracks, many big fans of Mr. Jones have been missing out on a lot of true gems from their favorite rapper. And some of these tracks are nothing short of outstanding.
Creating The Lost Albums
With all that in mind, I created The Lost Albums; theoretical albums, which answer the question -- "What if Nas had made albums with all of these 'lost' tracks?" And at the same time, these dope tracks will be available for the first time all in one place. Since "theoretical albums" is the theme, I've also given a title and proper artwork to each album. Nas has such a tremendous catalog outside of his discography, I was able to compile five volumes (6 discs) and 99 total tracks. You will find all of Nas most rare tracks. And these are DOPE albums, not collections of throwaway tracks.
In the creation process, I tried to make for the best listening experience, and cohesion from track to track; giving the feel of a real album as much as possible. I chose to do this, rather than make an effort to keep tracks from around the same time together; songs from 2008 are mixed in with songs from 1994.
While compiling all of Nas' non-album tracks, I was also inspired to highlight Nas' extensive guest feature work. This turned into a four-disc collection, The Greatest Guest Features, and together with the five volumes of The Lost Albums, this is a very near-complete collection of Nas' non-album discography.
What tracks qualify for The Lost Albums?
Basically, any Nas track that isn't on one of his 13 Studio albums (including collaborations) -- Unreleased tracks meant for earlier albums; bootleg releases; internet leaks; bonus tracks not featured on the original album; songs from soundtracks or compilation projects.
Many hours were spent making sure The Lost Albums contains the highest quality version that exists on the net. Some of the tracks contain tags (DJ drops) or they are not CDQ (CD Quality) rips, but these are the best quality available for those songs. Also, a friend and producer, Ryan Gregory, has leveled out the sound (raising the volume on quieter tracks) and gotten rid of some of the tags and DJ shouts on others. Some of these songs are in better quality than could have been previously found before the release of The Lost Albums.
...But we'll never stop ticking. If you take a look at the live reader "check-in" traffic feed, in the right column below our affiliates, you'll see that the ABM New York City site is constantly being used by the masses to get their daily dosage of DOPE whether it be Hip-Hop, fashion tid-bits, or other miscellaneous ends. Yeah!
We're always striving to give our readers the right blend of under-ground material as well as mainstream. (Cool right?!)
We thank you for your continued viewership!
Definitely Abstract, New York.

A little bit about TonyEmcee (@tonyemcee):
" Born in the Town Of Kings (Kingston, Jamaica) but raised in Kings County (Brooklyn, New York) since he was two years old, TonyEmcee (Anthony Stephenson 24) has as much dynamic as any of the great young rappers in the game today. Armed with great lyrical versatility and superb character, TonyEmcee has recorded in some of Americas grittiest cities. TonyEmcee is destined to make not only a name in this over saturated music industry but also a great impact in Hip Hop history itself. 'Welcome to The Tony Awards'! "

We ran into some minor issues with the Cover Art but we're wrapping that up & will have the Loyalty EP out no later than November on iTunes! To celebrate this announcement, we've released a Trailer including some visuals that represent us & also an instrumental preview of what you'll be hearing on the EP this November!!!! "
