alpha.live + J. Brookinz - Six Shot EP

alpha.live + J. Brookinz - Six Shot by Heavy Gun 2011

Indy’s god emcee alpha.live links up with J. Brookinz, the Highest Man Alive, for Six Shot, a tribute to lyric and sample driven hip-hop:

The teaser video for Six Shot said it all: 1 emcee, 1 producer, 2 legends, 6 shots!  After several years of friendly one-off collaborations, alpha.live and J. Brookinz link up to give hip-hop junkies a hot shot in the arm of impeccable beats with perfectly laced lyrics.  The pair first collaborated on the now infamous OG version of The Bar featuring Grey Granite, then built upon that with the critically acclaimed “Obama 08” that was featured on blogs like Kevin Nottingham, and have recently collabbed on a track for Brookinz’s exalted The Gateway Drug.  Six Shot picks up where their relationship left-off with Brookinz’s penchant for chipmunk soul and alpha’s love of thought provoking, creative lyrics.  From the lead single “The Come Up” to the highly processed closing track “Blue Skies”, Six Shot proves to be dead on the mark all six rounds.

Every city has that one lyricist that everyone has to admit is a beast on the mic; in Indianapolis that artist is alpha.live.  Gentleman Alphonse cut his teeth in freestyle circles in Indianapolis long before every dropping his now infamous FIXTape and was named one of Indy’s top freestyle emcees by Nuvo in 2009.  Since then, alpha has dropped the well received Steal From The Rich w/ Dope Couture’s CMART, The Love Story, and Soul Cinema with producer Soul Cinematik.  Currently alpha.live is working with Spitten Writtens to craft video adaptations of each track on Six Shot and Soul Cinematik to finish their next project Soul Cinema 1.5!

During the spring and summer of 2010, J. Brookinz reasserted why he is hands down the Highest Man Alive.   4/20/2010 found the producer (and sometimes rapper) releasing his most well received project to date.  The Gateway Drug: THC was Mr. Brookinz’s love letter to the light of his life—marijuana.  As a testament to how intertwined cannabis and hip-hop have become in American culture, the project was featured on blogs such as Ruby Hornet, Kick Kick Snare, Mostly Junk Food, Noise Porn, Check The Rhymes, and Tune Devil.  Watch for J. Brookinz to follow up The Gateway Drug’s success with a sequel for this year’s holiday!

Bob G. Barker presents NightRiders’ FREE ALBUM Passports & Paparazzi

Bob G. Barker presents the NightRiders album Passports & Paparazzi as a FREE download:

NightRiders - Passports & Paparazzi by The NightRiders

The NightRiders offer their take on “the life” with their debut album Passports & Paparazzi.  The record opens with “Good Intentions”, a track about the aspirations of a couple young hustlers, and then turns towards a world of fame and fortune.  Passports & Paparazzi features the four singles: Don’t Get Me Wrong, Jump Off the Planet, Roll It up, and One Day At A Time.  Hope you have your passport read; it’s time for a trip with the NightRiders as your guides.

Bob G. Barker and Jam P. Astro formed the NightRiders in 2008 shortly after meeting in Indianapolis.  Bob G. Barker was already a veteran of emcee of the group Knox Haven, so when he met Jam P., a producer and rapper, it was like planets colliding.  Bob G. Barker is a master of the classic leisurely flow, and Jam P. Astro has the perfectly complimenting quick tongue.  The pair seamlessly transition between the club and the street.

ComDot - She Likes …

ComDot readies the release of his Pushn Dope EP with the first single “She Likes …”:

ComDot - She Likes … by HeavyGun

"She likes to bump our shit!" ComDot proudly proclaims on the lead single to his upcoming Pushn Dope EP.  "She Likes …" is a classic hip-hop anthem with a solid beat and catchy hook that can be sang by even the most unfamiliar crowd.  Adding to the golden-age feel of the track, Com breaks it down w/ the beat box as an unnamed femmcee busts a few lines.   Com Dizzle is here to get you right with the sound "She Likes …".

ComDot is a double threat as a lyrical emcee and MPC master.  The Carolina native has been storming markets west of Mississippi for the past several years.  Prior to his recent move back to North Carolina, Com had been residing in Indianapolis where he linked up with the Heavy Gun family.  In 2009, a remix of his classic jam Pushn Dope was featured on J. Brookinz’s Re’Visionz EP.  Due to his travels, the D-O-T a unique sensibility and style to every record he rocks.

NightRiders - Jump Off The Planet

The NightRiders, Bob G Barker and Jam P Astro, drop the second single off of their upcoming release Passports & Paparazzi:

Some movements just can’t be contained on Earth and “Jump Off The Planet”.  Enter the NightRiders, the definition of a dynamic duo.  “Jump Off The Planet” is the second single off of their upcoming EP Passports & Paparazzi and follow up to “Don’t Get Me Wrong” on Heavy Gun Recordings.  Their new song mixes an interstellar beat with the spit game of two top-shelf lyricists.

Bob G. Barker and Jam P. Astro formed the NightRiders in 2008 shortly after meeting in Indianapolis.  Bob G.

NightRiders - Don’t Get Me Wrong


The NightRiders, Bob G Barker and Jam P Astro, drop the first single off of their upcoming release Passports & Paparazzi:

We’ve all met that girl with a ridiculous body but had a busted face.  With their new banger “Don’t Get Me Wrong”, the NightRiders encourage you to jump on it.  The track features humorous verses, clever rhymes, a hot hook, and an infectious club beat.  The song saw a little bit of exposure last summer after an early release, but now its ready for the attention it truly deserved.  If you’ve never been sold on messing with a but-her-face (pronounced “butter face”), you will be after a listen of this tune.

The NightRiders are a new collaboration between veteran emcees Bob G. Barker and Jam P. Astro.  Their official debut release Passports & Paparazzi is set to drop later this summer on Heavy Gun Recordings.
