Banks & Steelz – a musical collaboration between Wu Tang Clan’s RZA and Interpol’s Paul Banks – release their debut album, Anything But Words, today via all digital retailers. 

The album features guest appearances by Florence Welch of Florence + The Machine, Kool Keith, and Wu-Tang Clan’s Ghostface KillahMethod Man, and Masta Killa. Banks & Steelz will conduct a Reddit AMA tonight, August 26th, at 5pm PT / 8pm ET at

Please see below for all upcoming shows. In addition, they will appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, August 30th.
 
Banks & Steelz began working on music together in 2013 where the idea to collaborate with the Interpol front-man sparked after RZA’s manager asked him who he wanted to do an album with. “When I met Paul, I recognized the New York energy he has as a music artist,” RZA told Rolling Stone. “We got to know each other playing chess and vibing out in the studio. Our talents connected in a unique way and we started writing songs. The outcome was something distinctively different from my previous work, yet with another layer of cool.”

2DopeBoyz

Today, Watts rapper McKinley Ave partners with 2Dopeboyz to debut his brand new music video for “100 Bands” featuring Southern trappers Young Dolph and Zoey Dollaz. Directed by Cristian “Concrete” Gutierrez, the hard-hitting emcees along with sexy eye-candy use the visual to motivate others to keep hustling for 100 Bands. The DJ FU (Eardrummers) produced lead single will appear on McKinley Ave’s forthcoming album Did Dirt To Lay Pavement with additional features from Migos, Eric Bellinger, Joe Moses, Jay-305, Just Brittany and more.
 
Last week, HotNewHipHop premiered the audio for “100 Bands,” praising the “Enthusiastic portamento 808s and an eerie, ascending bell line together form the centerpiece of DJ FU’s production.”
McKinley explains, “This is probably one of my favorite records on my project. I’m from the Watts, California & rap about our way of life and what we had to do to get it. But at the end of the day, I want people to press play on my music and feel motivated. Whether you’re trapped in the streets or in the boardroom, I feel like we have all thought to ourselves… Damn, I gotta make 100 Bands.”
While McKinley’s debut project Did Dirt To Lay Pavementis set for release later this year, fans can enjoy previously released #DDTLP songs: the G-funk inspired No Regular featuring RJ and production by DJ FU and Mike Free as well as his raw S. Class produced Roosters.  McKinley Ave and S. Class’ production duo has worked on projects for Eric Bellinger, Cam’ron, Beanie Sigel, WC, Eve, Kirk Franklin among others.

KING WORLD TOUR
EXTENDED THROUGH THE FALL
 
 NICK HAKIM AND JOEY DOSIK
JOIN KING ON TOUR
 
DEBUT ALBUM WE ARE KING
HONORED ON BEST OF 2016 ALBUM LISTS:
TIME MAGAZINE, ROLLING STONE, PITCHFORK
COMPLEX, NPR, NOISEY AND MORE!
The trailblazing ladies of KING have been on the road all year with their sold-out world tour and are thrilled to announce that due to extraordinary popular demand, they have added an additional North American leg to extend into the Fall where they will make stops in Los Angeles, New York, Seattle, Boston, Atlanta among many others. Supporting the newly added Fall tour dates are Los Angeles singer-songwriter Joey Dosik and Brooklyn singer-songwriter Nick Hakim.
“It’s been a great year and we’re excited to continue the movement with our fall tour,” says KING’s Paris Strother. “Performing the record live has given new life to the songs, and we can’t wait to share the new arrangements with fans across the globe. We’re also excited to present Nick Hakim and Joey Dosik, two outstanding talents who will be supporting the US dates of the tour.”
KING’s critically acclaimed #1 independent album We Are KING has been honored with coveted spots on the “Best Of 2016 (So Far)” lists by TIME MagazineRolling Stone,PitchforkComplexNPRStereogumNoisey,Newsday and The Quietus.  TIME Magazinedeclared, “This Prince-endorsed trio’s debut is a Quiet Storm dreamscape, with meticulous production.”Complex adds that KING “keeps traditional R&B alive and fresh.” NPR raves about KING’s Muhammad Ali tribute “The Greatest” and how its “featherweight groove hits the ears as a demonstration of joy found in gracefulness” and it is one of their favorite songs of the year! Stereogum is enamored as “KING came out of the gate with the cool, relaxed stride of a thoroughbred headed to the solitude of the winner’s circle.”Meanwhile Noisey perfectly sums it up: “It’s vapor-funk, dream-soul, the result of a vision that extracts the latent etherealism of innumerable late-80s R&B ballads and brings it to the forefront. Above all, these aren’t empty surfaces, as the songs take melodic and textural turns that give them real heart.”
 
Fans can also enjoy KING’s recently released collaborations with Grammy winners Corinne Bailey Rae and Robert Glasper.  KING performed and co-wrote on five songs of Corinne Bailey Rae’s latest studio album The Heart Speaks In Whispers:  “Green Aphrodisiac“, “Been To The Moon“, “Tell Me”, “Horse Print Dress“, and “Taken by Dreams.”Vibe was swept away by lead single “Been To The Moon” praising that it “as refreshing as when the sun comes out on a cloudy day while walking to the market” and noted that“with collaborations from KING and Esperanza Spalding, The Heart Speaks Volumes will swallow you whole. You’ll relive all that love has to offer, the good, bad and the indescribable and your heart will pulsate.”Moreover, Complex Magazine raved that their collaboration on “Green Aphrodisiac” has a  “soulful sound that perfectly matches her [Corinne’s] lyricism.”  Meanwhile, KING are among the starry assortment of guests on Robert Glasper’s seductive Miles Davis tribute album where KING wrote, produced and performed the soulful and angelic “Song For Selim.”

ABOUT KING:
Twins Paris and Amber Strother and musical sister Anita Bias are KING.
In 2011, KING independently released their first EP to much acclaim; title track “The Story”, “Supernatural”, and “Hey” make up the 3-piece introduction to their carefully crafted dream-soul sound. Hours after the release, their EP had traveled far to music lovers and tastemakers alike, making new fans of many.
KING’s eclectic sound is relatable yet not simply defined. Though they play with the boundaries of their many influences, throughout each song is the common thread of a certain soulful authenticity. The smooth vibe, intricate production, and harmonic style of their music evolved beautifully in their home studio, a product solely of the three women and a result of their Minneapolis and Los Angeles roots.
Paris produces KING’s songs, while Amber and Anita are the primary singers. The three work together on songwriting and arrangements to create their unique sound, garnering such accolades as Rolling Stone’s 10 New Artists You Need To Know,Pitchfork’s Best New TrackNPR’s Song of the Dayand 10 Songs Public Radio Can’t Stop PlayingBillboard’s 10 Best R&B Songs of 2014The Guardian’s New Band of the Day and Best Albums of 2013Metro UK‘s Singles of the WeekGlamour Magazine’s 2013 Free Holiday Music Campaign and the 55th GRAMMY Award for ‘Move Love’, their collaboration with Robert Glasper on his Best R&B Album ‘Black Radio’.
KING’s debut album We Are KING blends an array of genres, eras, and influences, and serves as the introduction to the trio’s lush soundscape.  We Are KING was released February 5th, 2016 via KING Creative and bowed at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart and in the top 10 on Independent Albums and R&B Albums chart. It has received rave reviews from NPR, Rolling Stone, New York Times, Pitchfork, Stereogum, Los Angeles Times, Newsday, Billboard, Boston Globe, Chicago Sun Times, Village Voice, Brooklyn Vegan, Ebony, VIBE, The London Sunday Times, Life +Times, the Guardian, Essence and many more.

New Music Video: Dumbfoundead and The Fader premiere Harambe

DUMBFOUNDEAD AND THE FADERPREMIERE
 
WE MIGHT DIE MIXTAPE COMING SOON
 
“The LA artist shines a light on political unrest while
also paying homage to the Cincinnati Zoo’s late star gorilla Harambe.”
 – The FADER
 
Los Angeles emcee Dumbfoundead partners with The Fader to debut his brand new gorilla style music video “Harambe.” With hard-hitting production by Getter, Dumbfoundead delves into the fatal shooting of Harambe to address social injustice and the consequential widespread paranoia. “Harambe” will be included in Dumbfoundead’s We Might Die mixtape due out later this year.
 
 
Dumbfoundead explains to The Fader, “I linked up with Getter to work on my next mixtape – We Might Die. This was around the time the gorilla shooting happened and we came up with “Harambe.” I felt that this was the energy in the world during that time that I needed to address.”
 
Earlier this summer, the Korean-American pioneer Dumbfoundead fiercely confronted Hollywood’s offensive stereotypes with his #1 trending lead single “Safe.” Superimposing his own face over the faces of white actors of iconic films, Dumbfoundead spotlights the Asian American narrative and anti-whitewashing anthem that was featured on the homepage of CNNThe Los Angeles Times and Al Jazeera.
 
 
 
ABOUT DUMBFOUNDEAD:
 
“Dumbfoundead is a walking bag of charisma. Equipped with a blunted grin,
infectious attitude, and an arsenal of quick witted rhymes,
the burgeoning new generation Project Blowedian with endless potential.”
– Genius.com
 
From the battle grounds to the silver screen, Jonathan Park (professionally known as Dumbfoundead) has built up an unbelievably impressive repertoire. Born in Buenos Aires to Korean immigrants, smuggled into Mexico, raised in K-town Los Angeles where he later freestyled at open mics in Leimert Park at Project Blowed and was part of the last generation of Blowedians, Dumbfoundead is now a force to be reckoned with not only in the Los Angeles hip-hop scene but also internationally as a viral hip-hop ambassador.
 
During the 2015 King of the Dot’s Blackout 5 world reknown rapper Drake praised Dumbfoundead as the highlight of the rap battle. Later, Dumbfoundead used to his platform to champion for Asian rappers Keith Ape and Rich Chigga to come to the US where they formed the crew CXSHXNLY.  Dumbfoundead was also featured on Keith Ape’s viral hit “It G Ma Remix”alongside A$AP Ferg, Father and Waka Flocka Flame.  Moreover, Dumbfoundead was also honored for his contributions for Asian artists with theKoreanAmericanStory.org Trail Blazer award alongside actress Sandra Oh and humanitarian Thomas Park Clement.
 
Dumbfoundead has also branched out as an actor with supporting roles in Joseph Kahn’s Detention(2011), Bodied (2017) and Season 3 of Starz #1 series Power (2016). Most recently, Dumbfoundead has embraced the curator role in one of K-town’s most happening parties: Spamneggs alongside Far East Movement and Tokimonsta.
