Last month DubCNN alumni Azad Right released his first new track in some months, “Enough of You.”
In that same update we made you aware that his new position as VP at record label Mind of a Genius (ZHU, Gallant, THEY) had led to his appearance in the LA Weekly people of 2016 list.
After the release of the aforementioned single, he returns today with his latest track”Special.” This shows Azad at his most vulnerable and showcases his talent for making heartfelt, introspective music with a gift for wordplay. “Special” is produced by Patrick Collier and shows Azad mix up melodies with a double paced rhyme scheme.
Give the track a spin here and support it on iTunes.

Demrick has been soaking up the Cali sun in preparation for his “Collect Call” album, due for release on June 24th via 10 Stripe Records.
The latest track to hear – following on from his “Collect Call (Freestyle)” – is his latest single “Different Day.”
The record has a summer soul vibe with ascending trumpets and xylophone melodies, that is fittingly blessed with a guest verse from Casey Veggies. Demrick explains how the track came about;
“I was sitting in the studio, and a few calls and texts had come through my phone that day that typically would’ve annoyed me. Rather than get annoyed, I was just in a mindset that wouldn’t allow me to get flustered on that particular day. The song feels exactly how I felt on the day I wrote it, which was stress-free.”
DubCNN alumni Demrick will drop “Collect Call” on June 24th via 10 Stripe Records. Until then listen to “Different Day” featuring Casey Veggies, produced by StandOut Musik.

Snoop Dogg’s recent compilation album “The Return of Doggy Style Records” featured an array of new artists as part of his relaunch of the label.
“I came into contact with Rhoda Carmen, the mother of Nate Dogg’s son a few years back. One day she posted on her Instagram that she was excited to be a part of the relaunch of Doggy Style Records. I immediately hit her up to ask what was happening and she let me know that Snoop and the crew were planning to rekindle what he started years ago with Doggy Style Records.”
HeebzStreet continues went on to explain;
“Being a big fan of Snoop, I asked her if she could pass along my music to his label since she had the connections. She told me, even though she liked my music, that it would be better for me to reach out to them [Doggy Style Records] myself and gave me their contact info. She also let me know that they really only wanted California artists, specifically, Long Beach City artists. I still figured it was worth a shot to reach out and I sent over like 5 of my best new songs. About a month later I got an email from the A&R for Doggy Style Records. He let me know that him and Snoop listened to my music and they both really liked one track in particular called ‘Wasted Time’. That’s when I was offered the deal with Doggy Style Records. Pretty surreal.”
HeebzStreet has recently completed a new song called “Letters” a collaboration with Jonathan Hay and Ajami for Doggy Style Records. The song also features a guest saxophone cameo from Matt Berman of Monroe who performs with Brandon Flowers of The Killers, one of the biggest rock groups today. The song will also appear on When Music Worlds Collide (Deluxe) a producer driven album by Jonathan Hay, Mike Smith and King Tech of The Wake Up Show with Sway Calloway on SiriusXM Shade 45. Jonathan Hay told DubCNN.com;
“I think, without question, the collaboration we have with HeebzStreet is a hit record. He gives an extraordinary performance and people will be shocked to hear it. I’m excited to hear what Snoop and Doggy Style think of it.”
