Signed to super-producer Bangladesh’s label, the duo known as Famous 2 Most are responsible for creating popular dances such as the “Whoop Rico,” the “Nae Nae,” and the “Whip.”
Hasani and PJ met in high school and they are both yet to reach their 21st birthday. The young duo have been featured in Complex Magazine and the New York Times. You can find their dances on all over YouTube, during Sunday night football, and even in a McDonald’s commercial. All of the dances have songs tied to them and that’s exactly what keeps the pair in the studio cooking up hits.
Their fan base ranges from elementary school kids to pro athletes, who all show tremendous support through countless interactions on social media. Together, their YouTube views peak well over the million count mark and collectively their Instagram followers total over 100,000.
Their latest song “Z.A.N.Z.” — produced by Hasani for Bangladesh Productions — has begun to generate a buzz among their following and has attracted many new listeners to their sound. Famous 2 Most is stocked full of potential and they truly live up to their name, as they are already famous to most.

NY native El Gant, and SoCal’s Waterproof MC, Ras Kass, join forces on the bicoastal banger, “Razor Ramon.” The track is released just in time for the duo’s six city tour that starts tonight in Seattle, where the two will end up in Austin for a week of debauchery at SXSW. Par the course, Ras Kass spits with reckless abandon, between El Gants’ rapid fire flow that fuses cultural analogies with tales of industry shenanigans. To make the cypher complete, Sweden’s DJ Devastate add his razor sharp scratch chorus over Jake Palumbo’s synth heavy production. The faint of heart or dim witted, need not apply…playboy your time’s up.

We’ve been lied to. The “land of the free and the home of the brave” may have been true at one point in American history, but the mantra couldn’t be any farther from the truth today. The media has painted a picture of minorities as criminals to be feared. Law enforcement comb the streets, often acting as judge, jury and executioner, to those who have no affiliation with criminal activity. It’s this very behavior that destroying the bedrock of our country, and the notion of liberty.
Leading the pack in fighting for what’s right are Vice Soulectric, and Guilty Simpson with “Troublesome,” the debut leak taken from Vice’s forthcoming EP, Vice for President. As Vice drops knowledge on being called into question for being wrongfully accused by those who are sworn to protect and serve, Guilty echoes a Biggie bar, reminiscing on that fact that for many, sports and entertainment are the only way for African Americans to be successful in this current system. The highly charged, futuristic head nodder produced by Vice, serves as a much needed dose of reality rap. Mark your calendars for the April 7th release of Vice for President, which is set to drop through Vice’s United Grind imprint…stay tuned!
I personally believe it’s due to the artists style that really gets you hooked on an act. High Focus Records have shown in the last the last few years that being original and consistent pays off. So over to Huddersfield for this one, maybe not the first place you think of when you think of UK Hip-Hop but trust me when I say talent is everywhere now and that manor has already gave us some great acts, Lunar C is the first that springs to mind. Here is a that’s destined to make some noise, make sure you take note.
The album begins with a bang with ‘Bruce Campbell’ which sets the mood well for this long player. The video track ‘3310’ which features DJ esSDee & Defenders Of Style is included and other stand out tracks include ‘Opposition’ and the J Dilla-esque ‘Electric Loose’ which features Jermaine A. Peterson. Its real ‘down to earth’ music as Eskar keeps it real but always injects some kind of dark humour within his bars which makes him so unique. His album is something refreshing and will appeal to fans of real bars… the flow is immense!

Jimmy ValenTime releases the visuals to his single “Bad Decisions”, directed by Derrick Dawkins, whom already shot both of Jimmy’s singles for “Life in Amazin Times”. Derrick is now working on The hit ABC show “Forever”. The haunting song details the way two people react to a causal hook up that leaves the both of them empty. The video travels with Jimmy the day after, and the young women the night before. Jimmy explains “I wrote the song for a real person, somebody I was friends with that always seemed to make the wrong choices. She was a sweet person, but always on the verge of self-destruction. I tried to imagine what cause her to be the way she was.”
