A new cut called “Patriots (Red, Blue & Silver) has been unleashed by Mayhem, who some of you may know as a part of EMS. He is doing things with guests such as Big Shug, Edo G. and M-Dot, collected together by producer Souslicers with a bit of DJ slicing up the abdomens by LP2. This song will find its way on the Soul It May Seem project, and a video is being put together as you read this.

Don’t believe me? He’s about to prove himself once more by hitting the road this week as part of The Black Cloud Tour. Along with Block McCloud, King Magnetic, Kromeatose, and GQ nothin’ pretty, Cappadonna is going to show everyone that underground hip-hop you know and love.
