Vince Staples The PAISLEY SUMMER TOUR
West coast representer Vince Staples paints vivid picture with his words on a new track, titled "Guns N Roses." The young MC revisits some of life's more precarious situations, much of which stem from living in impoverished circumstances. Mac Miller, who has been displaying a lot of his production savvy as of late, created the cut.

Audio Push emcees Oktane and Price Tag might be young guns in the rap game, but they are approaching their careers with the swagger of elder statesmen. The rappers from the Inland Empire section of Southern California are forerunners of the fast rising "jerk" movement, boasting the sub-genre's first tribute record, "Teach Me How To Jerk.

Their skilled energetic jerk style bares similarities to '80s Ska mixed with rapid skipping, squatting and popping movements. But the former crump battle dancers can also spit. They write their own rhymes and posses impressive confident conversational flows.

Produced by Kadis and Sean of Roz Music Entertainment, "Teach Me How To Jerk" vibrates with hypnotic energy. It was the buzz they received throughout the I.E. and MySpace that secured them show dates, including a set at the highly regarded Texas Summer Music Conference. They caught the attention of Roz Entertainment, struck a production deal and started working on more songs, including a remix to their already popular "Teach Me How To Jerk."

While "Teach Me How To Jerk" will serve as their introduction to many, Audio Push is multi-dimensional. Other songs on their self-titled debut range from the hip-hop ballads like the fly Auto-Tune styled "Aviator" and bouncy "Chose You"; retro flavored braggadocio "Mike Jackson Bad," rock fueled "Audio Kiss," and the piano driven, uplifting message song "Run Away."

It's been a good minute since a new group broke out West without being associated with an already established superstar name. But Audio Push is that good. They don't need the co-sign. Their hype, energy and talent is enough to blaze a trail. It's already in motion.

Skeme
At seventeen, after a challenge from his Grandfather to write a rhyme, Skeme began taking his passion for music seriously. Skeme attended Los Angeles Recording School where he took engineering classes while trying to use the schools facilities to record one of his many mixtapes. After completing four months of the nine-month program, Skeme decided to leave the school and commit to his music full-time. "I'm in school twelve hours out the day and I can't really record like I want to, so I left and started recording anywhere and everywhere I could" he says detailing his process. A relentless drive to work and record led to some of Skeme's best work. Skeme of Things 2, All-Rapped Up and his latest release Pistols and Palm Trees started a snowball effect that pushed Skeme's name into conversations of being one of LA's best.

There are plenty of things for Skeme to look forward to in his near future, but for now his focus is on spending as much time as possible in the studio and connecting with his fans. Skeme knows that there is no substitute for the grind. While promoting Pistols & Palm Trees he's also working on his next project titled The Statement. Like his previous works, The Statement is a true reflection of Skeme. Loving the freedom his music provides, Skeme says "The biggest inspiration is music." His songs are filled with the truths and stories of his environment, real life without the gimicks. "It's about doing you," he says while cracking a joke with his manager. "I want people to get me!"
