Slaughterhouse with dope new video taken from footage at one of their shows during SXSW. It’s also pretty damn cool that they decided to use me, yes, your very own Felix the Hat, in the beginning of the video. Another Live Music City sighting at SXSW 2012.

Just after releasing his newest mix-tape, “Blue Chips”, Action Bronson comes at you with a new one that has that smooth, natural flow, and sick beats that keeps me listening to this lyrical genius. Check out Actions’ fresh cut track “Simple Man” below.

With Ramona Falls releasing their album Prophet, May 1, they have given us “Brevony” today. Starts off with some calming piano, and gets pretty heavy half way through the song with a metalish-guitar sound and distortion over the vocals. Above is a short video of a private performance done from this year at SXSW.
