So.. apparently the new “challenge” is doing a remix of Monica’s track “So Gone” from her “After the Storm” album (which by the way was originally released on my Birthday June 17th in 2003). Absolutely one of those timeless albums that if you played it today 13 years later it would still be good.
So what I’m sharing is in my opinion one of the best (if not thee best) #SoGoneChallenge attempts I’ve seen by Elwood (Elwood Music).
You can check Elwood out on Facebook & Twitter:
This is a new project I’m personally putting together, so any submissions for this project must fall under the guidelines of spiritually conscious and be free from sexually explicit lyrics & profanity (college radio friendly) Project submissions are open to any artist/song that meets this criteria. Send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org include artist name, track title, & producer name. (Hosting DJ TBA)
Meet 18 year-old Afro (All Flows Reach Out). Afro has been referred to as “the future of hip-hop”, and if you haven’t heard him rhyme? I’m sure after you do, you’d be inclined to agree with that statement. Mentored by hip-hop veteran RA the Rugged Man, R.A. became aware of the young emcee when A-F-R-O entered a freestyle contest on YouTube hosted by R.A. “This kid won the contest before it was even ended.”-RA (http://uproxx.com/music/2015/09/afro-ra-the-rugged-man-uncharted)
I had the pleasure of meeting both of them back in October of this year, while filming scenes from Hell Razah’s upcoming documentary “Risen, the story of Chron Hell Razah Smith”(directed by Frank Meyer). Although it’s probably not a secret to Afro that he is extremely talented, he is one of the most humble young men I’ve ever met and that just makes me even more excited to share his music with you. I’d also like to go on record for being the first person to refer to him as a “Supernova”. I haven’t seen that in print yet, so I’m saying it and printing it.
Over this past week, the official music video “Code #829” was released (11/18/15) and can be found on his new mix tape “Tales from the Basement”. “This is just a mixtape joint A-F-R-O recorded at his mothers house. Just having fun murdering flows and spitting lyrical codes for fans to decipher.. this is super ill but wait till you hear the official music and what we got in store for you all.”-RA
California-bred lyrical titan A-F-R-O aka All Flows Reach Out debuts his first official music video, “Code #829”. Taken from A-F-R-O’s new mixtape “Tales From The Basement”, the track finds R.A. The Rugged Man’s protege going in over some vintage RZA production.
You can Stream + Download “Tales From The Basement” absolutely free here: http://allflowsreachout.com/basement/
If you happen to be in Europe this month, you can catch him on his 2015 European tour with RA & Mr. Green.

The anticipated album from Wu-Tang Clan’s Method Man was released today and is his first solo record in approximately nine years. This project features 36 tracks and some of the features you’ll hear are from Redman, Handz On, Raekwon, and Inspectah Deck.
I sat here for a few thinking what else could I possibly write to make this article more interesting, then I realized I don’t have to say anything else really. This man is in a class all by himself and needs no introduction or clever word play as an attempt to lore you in and get you to go support his project… he’s Method Man, nuff said.
Founding member of the Wu-Tang Clan. Grammy award winner. Platinum selling artist. Actor. Flower.
