Dave B’s new Justo-produced song, “He Got Game” is from his soon to be released album (May 6), School Daze. Don’t miss Dave B at The Crocodile May 2 for Grynch’s “Street Lights Album Release Party” with The Bar and Jake One. - Liz

New Music: DP - “Jabar”


“Jabar” is one of those song that gets away with murder, lyrically, because the Brooklyn Taylor beat is that good. Virginia Beach based artist, DP, also has a great twitter name, @gatkingcole. - Liz

Method Man

The edited version of a classic song is always a little painful, but, this song is worth it. “Break Ups 2 Make Ups” from Method Man’s 1998 album, Tical 2000: Judgement Day. - Liz
