Archive for the “Weekly Mic Check” Category

In my effort to put an extra spotlight on some new artists who have submitted music to me, I’m bringing back the Weekly Mic check, and this week’s artist, Parable.

DOWNLOAD: Parable- “Mathematics of a Dream”

Hailing from Miami and the burgeoning scene there, but not part of We Tha Best! (shocking for a Miami rapper these days, huh), Parable is a pretty intense guy on the mic. It’s one of those paradoxes though, because he’s a pretty cool guy off stage. If the picture above doesn’t do a justice, well… you’re just a square.

Hartford, CT and Boston MC Front Page has been releasing tracks via his MySpace every other week lately, and his past two drops are ones to keep your eye on. Starting with a spot on Movado’s “I’m So Special Remix,” Page dropped “Killin’ This” last week. The song features a cool lil Jay-Z sample on the hook and a melody that will probably be stuck in your head the rest of the day. Check it out below.

If you’re in the Boston area tomorrow, check out Front Page at Bay State College at 6 pm. For more, check out his MySpace.

I’ve been trying to think of a way to best feature the new MC’s that send material to me. I don’t always just want to simply post it up, because then it will just get lost in the shuffle (although sometimes I just do that). After all, I started this site in large part to give new MC’s/producers/DJ’s their shine when they may be having trouble getting on the mainstream sites.

With all that said, here’s the start of the Weekly Mic Check; something you can expect every Friday, and will highlight a new MC that stood out to me.

Download: Are Pure- Downside Up World

This week I’m happy to say that I’ve got a solid debut from an artist out of Hartford, CT, named Are Pure. He’s an affiliate of our mixtape alum and featured artist Front Page. The track he’s given us is called “Downside Up World,” which was produced by Speek. Are Pure is also going to be dropping a mixtape in a few weeks titled, Pay Your Child Support!!.

If you’re feeling the track, check out his MySpace or Aceos Music.
