We’re staying up in the Bay Area for the next release. I’m talking about A-Wax, who is now signed to Akon’s Konvict Muzik label and dropped a new Street Album on iTunes today.

Features include Brotha Lynch Hung, Messy Marv, Chingo Bling, Black C, Smigg Dirtee, Juice, Tall Cann G, Tiny Doo, Beta Bossalini amongst others. You can cop this on iTunes today by clicking here.
Today saw the release of an album that has been in the works for about a decade. I’m talking about Tha Realest debut album “Witness Tha Realest“. Even though he had a hard time gaining recognition because of his obvious similarity with the late great 2Pac Shakur, Tha Realest has managed to stay in the game and you’ve heard him as a part of Yukmouth’s group The Regime. He finally released his album, off which we brought you the single “Get It N a few months back. The album inclues features by Ray J, Fat Joe, WC, J. Valentine, Crooked I, Yukmouth, EDI of Tha Outlawz, Devin The Dude, Sean P, C-Bo and more. Support the man by copping “Witness Tha Realest” by clicking here.
Last, but definitely not least is the solo project by Big Krizz Kaliko, better known as the smooth voice blessing most of Tech N9ne‘s songs and assisting him during his live show. After dropping a solo album last year called “Vitiligo“, Krizz Kaliko is back already with a full album titled “Genius“. On this one, Krizz really gets to show his full talent and his versitality. The first single, “Misunderstood“, is very reminiscent of a Gnarls Barkley type of joint and is definitely a breath of fresh air. You can watch the video to “Misunderstood” by clicking here.
