Long Live "The Deer"

I'm still not ready to speak on the passing of my dear/Deer friend J1.  I have, however, put together some photos of all of our times with him over the last five years.  Do whatever you want with these images.  Just speak of my friend J with love an honor, and as the King of the Animal Kingdom.

MAGESTIK LEGEND "To Be Continued...Chapter 2"

Today marks the release of Magestik Legend's latest body of work, "To Be Continued...Chapter 2".  This is the second installment of the "To Be Continued" mixtape series, and includes some of hip hop's elite producers and emcees on the project.  For "Chapter 2", Magestik Legend reached out to Rapper Big Pooh (of famed hip hop supergroup Little Brother) to host, and got DJ Flash of the Justus League on board to complete the mix.   On the production end, Magestik went to his over seas music partner, Astronote (Classic Stereo), as well as Detroit's own 14KT of the Lab Techs.  With additional tracks by Audible Doctor and Slop Funk Dust, "To Be Continued...Chapter 2" is the perfect blend of banging beats and superior rhymes, sure to make you say DAMN! after listening.  The project includes songs "Carbon", "Crazy" and the lead out track "Get.Ends.High." which have exploded on the blog scene over the past couple weeks,  and tons of other heavy hitting tracks to complete the album's sound.  Supported by FWMJ "Rappers I Know", BlackNBling, and TEAM LEGEND, "To Be Continued...Chapter 2" is OFFICIALLY HERE.
