No I.D. & The Legendary Traxster To Entirely Produce Mikkey Halsted's "The Force" LP

The Chicago, Illinois producers are coming together for the rapper's new project.

For his upcoming album The Force, Mikkey Halsted has enlisted production entirely from No I.D. and The Legendary Traxster.

The Chicago, Illinois producers have previously helped drive the mainstream potential of regional music. They previously worked together on tracks for Twista (“The Heat” featuring Raekwon) and Big Sean (“I Do It” ).

“If you know the history, when you really go back for Chicago Hip Hop, me and Traxster really kind of started what I would call the mainstream Hip Hop movement for Chicago,” said No I.D. “We pioneered it. In theory, two sides of town, two styles of music, but a real Hip Hop perspective and a creative perspective.”

“We was in the same city,” added Traxster. “He’s my senior by a few years in music, coming in the game, but at some point I was the young punk who had came up. We never really had a lot of conversations. We had a mutual respect… We never really kicked it until I was trying to expand my career and I came to Atlanta where Dion was. He embraced me and said, ‘Man, this is where you need to be.’”

Stunna reveals the follow-up to 2006's collaborative album with Lil Wayne.

Though details on the album are scarce, Stunna took to Twitter to make the announcement of the project, which serves as the follow-up to 2006's Like Father, Like Son, his collaborative LP with Lil Wayne.

The album has roots as far back as September 2010, where he said it would drop some time in 2011. But in April 2011, Baby gave an interview where he discussed the potential for the album sequel's release, projecting that it would release in December 2011.

"We're looking to do that in December some time, after we all drop our solos albums and go on tour," explained Birdman. "We have a lot of songs we did before (Wayne) went (to jail), and we've been working since he came home. All we've got to do is pick. And Wayne likes to be fresh with our music, so we might wait... and just knock out 20 songs right quick and put those on the album."

The Missouri deejay who made "Uneasy Listening" with DJ Z-Trip a decade ago, shared his winnings with DJ M-Squared and DJ Yonny.

Last night (January 14) in Atlanta, Georgia, DJ P won Smirnoff's Master of The Mix deejay competition. The veteran Springfield, Missouri deejay won $250,000 as this year's winner.

“It feels so surreal – I can’t believe I’m the Season Two winner of Master of the Mix,” said DJ P in a statement. “I was up against some serious competition and really didn’t know how it would all work out because it was up to the fans to decide. I’m just thankful to everyone who supported me and can’t wait to spin for you all this year.”

Like 2011's winner, DJ Scratch, DJ P will deejay for Smirnoff throughout the year as an official party deejay.

DJ P is known for his 2001 retail-mixtape with Phoenix, Arizona's DJ Z-Trip, Uneasy Listening, Volume 1. The work was an early mash-up release, featuring tracks from Pharcyde, Del The Funky Homosapien, and others mixed with Top 40 tracks from Madonna, Pat Benatar and The Who.

M.O.P.'s Billy Danze Launches "Rap United Nations" Platform For Artists

Danze gives back to Hip Hop by helping artists get heard.

M.O.P.'s Billy Danze has announced the launch of Raps United Nation ("RUN"), a platform geared towards letting talented artists get heard.

“As an artist I understand the frustration," explained Danze. "There are so many artists out there that possess the talent of being able to produce and record good music. They are determined; they have the drive and dedication, but feel as if no one notices. I’ve seen and heard what’s out there from an artistic level. These artists need to be heard and have a united voice. I am very passionate about giving them that opportunity and will do anything in my power to help those that really want to win.”

The Hip Hop vet continued, saying, “My aim is to get every talented artist a deal. Support on a globalized scale is all an artist really needs or could ask for. I have contacted all my resources and they in return have done the same. A vital key to success in this business is alliance; and I personally have a team in every corner of the world. We can build a team of thousands and support each other.”

“As a fellow artist, these projects will enable me to be a vital cog in a family of worthy artists that simply need a platform and a voice and to oversee that lends the potential to be the biggest accomplishment of my career. From a business perspective, I believe 'RUN' (Raps United Nation) is a vehicle the industry is desperately lacking. The way to find new talent is to go get it. Industry executives no longer believe in the artist, or artist development, how can the industry grow if we don’t allow new artists to showcase their talent?”
