  1. Greetings, I really enjoy what you guys are doing with the site with the amount of different underground artists you cover. As your site seems to be based around a lot of up and comers, I feel like International would be a great fit to what you provide. I hope this finds your way. Good Morning, Told You So, and Chariots are the current singles from the latest release “Eye of the Storm” and all free downloads.

    International is a resident of Jackson, Michigan and was born in 1987 when Hip-hop was on the rise with groups like N.W.A., Kool G Rap, Houdini, and many others. He grew up in a home that was heavily influenced with different types of music ranging from Soul/RNB, Blues, Rock, Jazz, some bits of Country, and ultimately Hip-hop. International would often grow up listening to the different types of Hip-hop his older brother would play around friends or leave laying around when he wasn't home. His first exposure was an N.W.A. cassette that he would steal and play outside of his bedroom window on a boombox. Eventually around the age of 11 or 11 years old, International began writing rhymes of his own. He would often sneak online and rap inside chatrooms, message boards, and enter different competitions anywhere he could find to enhance his skills and learn from others. By the age of 14, International invested in his first mixer and began recording/producing music on his own venture. Most of his earlier years were spent constructing battle verses both written and freestyle. International would compete in many tournaments over the years winning his fair share of them as time progressed. His biggest victory came with a $2000 win in 2013. As time progressed, he craved to use his skill for more than merely battling. This led to the mixtapes "For the Love of the Art", "Never Been Better", and eventually his latest solo CD release "Eye of the Storm". Since then, he has traveled out to meet many of his favorite musicians such as 9th wonder, Rapsody, Khrysis, John Lee Hooker Jr, ect.

    Over the last year of his 17-year career, he has even gone as far as quitting his job to pursue music full time and begin a new journey as a musician strictly. His musical influences consist and range of many greats from Jimi Hendrix, 2pac, Eminem, Nas, Al Green, B.B. King, The Roots, Big Pun, Big L, Biggie, Atmosphere, 9th Wonder/Little Brother, Jay-Z, and many many others. Look for new features, shows, videos, and media to continue to come out as the next year sets into motion. You can check out currently the "Never Been Better" mixtape as well as "Eye of the Storm" ,both free of charge. hailed "Eye of the Storm" as being "the MOST original material I have heard in a very long time (2015)."

    Rick Bang = Good Music, Positive Vibes Only, Southern Royalty and Street Legend..
    THE RICK BANG THEORY COMING SOON!!!! If absence of body and mind is the absence of life, then the gap between generations has definitely caused an absence with the right to be different. RICK BANG, is an inspiring musician who depicts a vivid display of lyrical capabilities. Ever since he could remember music has played a major role in his life. Rick Bang combines the love he has for music with a desire to narrate life as he has seen it. Hailing from the river town of Natchez, Ms, a long list of musical legends have influenced or somehow shape his ear for music.
    He is a member of a group called Mell & Todd. Though there is still work to be done with his childhood friend ( and fellow artist Mell), Rick is using his solo endeavor as a way to bridge the gap between generations. He has spent time with Olu Dara, a Natchez native and father of hip hop icon NAS, has worked with major D.C. Labels and producers, and he even watched the development of new age artist like Big K.R.I.T. when he was starting out.
    Rick Bang will be a household name, he exerts," I'm trying to make music for 3 different generations, and make my name synonymous with success." For now, his dedication is to his solo project, but remains loyal to his foundation, Mell & Todd.

  3. I want Wu Tang Clan to write a song called "Worldwide Bankers Group". I also challenge every hiphop group to come up with their own version of the song. A competition to see who writes and performs the best. Now begins the competition. If you are a rap song writer or a group that wants to be included in the competition then just produce your works. We will see them and pick the winner. "Worldwide Bankers Group".
