Shane Eli “When We Were Kings”

Shane Eli‘s latest effort. When We Were Kings finds the L.A. rapper/producer drawing on the tradition of luminaries from Pac and Hova to Muhammad Ali and Geoffrey Canada (who appear in sampled interviews, adorned with authentic cuts by DJ Critical Hype). Delivered over a self-produced, chopped-sample instrumental, Eli lyrically launches a bitter (but constructive) attack against the status quo: “Free market business got the most packed prisons, torn down systems two teachers to a district, and the kids can’t read ‘cause their textbooks are missing.
“When We Were Kings” is the third official release from Shane Eli’s upcoming album, “I Can Do Better”, hosted by DJ Skee and dropping via DJBooth in March. Guests set to appear on the album include Laws, Smoke DZA, El Prez, Playboy Tre, Rittz, Aleon Craft, Ahmad and more.

Custelo feat Corey Wims – My World

Born 10/18/1981 hailing from the West Philly area of Philadelphia, Michael Bailey aka Custelo has been creating and performing music since 1995. Always reaching for more heart and soul, Michael has been tapping into the magical well of feelings and emotion creating memorable songs and instrumental music for over 10 years now.

As with many of us that grew up in the 90’s, Michael found him self enthralled with poetry oriented music from Artist’s like Kurtis Blow, Slick Rick and Run D Mc. Although Michael does not sound distinctly like those he admires, his music reflects the many sound scapes and dynamics of today’s music and the past. His music has been recently compared to being smooth and relaxed, sprinkled with a touch of pain. Michael’s passion for music started one fateful day in Elementary School when his parents bought him his first karaoke machine. Coupled with another gift of music, of his favorite Artist’s on tape that year, Michael’s musical fire was ignited with sparks from the soul.

That fire has been a non-extinguishable flame that burns strong and bright today. Since those first sparks, he has felt that music is the most influential force in the world. As he says, Music can be the healer, the peacemaker, the influencer, the agitator, the fire starter. You name it, music has been there in all forms and emotion throughout the history of the world.
