NEW MUSIC: MAGESTIK LEGEND – “LEGEND HAS IT” (FREE ALBUM)

The Black Opera MC drops his new album today to share with masses, called “Legend Has It”.

The story of Magestik Legend is a tale of struggle, triumph, evolution and love. ML has lived a thousand lives while traversing the world as Detroit hip-hop’s best kept secret. He’s spent his latter years behind the mask making music as his alter ego within The Black Opera collective. His musical lineage is multi-dimensional, having been front and center at the height of the Midwest Hip-Hop movement. Jesse Givens, known to his fans as Magestik Legend, has come from humble beginnings, worked like there’s no tomorrow, and been blessed to see the world. “Legend Has It” is the culmination of his efforts and the soundtrack to the waves of his life.

MAYER HAWTHORNE & JAKE ONE ARE “TUXEDO” – NEW ALBUM COMING SOON!

The dynamic duo of Mayer Hawthorne & Jake One have joined forces to become “Tuxedo”. These two talented indivuduals got together to make that stoopid funk grooves that’ll make you wanna get down & boogie!

Mayer Hawthorne (Aquarius) and Jake One (Taurus) – they are descendants of the one- word moniker family of funk, where you will find groups such as Chic, Shalamar, Plush & Zapp

The Tuxedo collaboration began with an exchange of mixtapes back in 2006. The fruits of a long-standing kinship were three tracks that mysteriously showed up on Internet doorsteps nearly two years ago. In between personal projects, these three tracks became a full album’s worth of Tuxedo. The album was mixed by original disco don dada John Morales at his home studio in South Plainfield, New Jersey. “I flew out there,” Mayer says. “His wife made me spaghetti and everything.” 

The duo is excited to release the upcoming album on Stones Throw Records, which also marks Mayer’s return to the label since his debut release of A Strange Arrangement in 2009. Until then, stay classy.” 

Album drops March 3, 2015!
