#BRTHAN8TN TRACK NO. 13 @EGRIZZLY305 @YIKESTHEZERO @TOMMYTUCKER28

Track No. 13 from BRTH A N8TN comes from the Philadelphia trio of E. Grizzly, Tommy Tucker and Yikes the Zero.  I've been in contact with E. Grizzly about a few things, so when I was thinking about a nationwide project and getting someone to represent Philly, I automatically thought of him.  Since it's all about collaboration, he sent work from a collabo project he's doing with Tommy Tucker and Yikes the Zero.  This trio is something to keep an eye out for in the coming year, but for now, check out the track below called, For What It's Worth.  It's reminiscent of the Wu with it's raw, dark sound.

#BRTHAN8TN TRACK NO. 12 @DUCKWRTH

Track No. 12 from BRTH A N8TN comes from the San Francisco mc that originally hails from South Central, LA.  His name is DUCKWRTH and he put out a dope project called Ducktape.  It's a dope, somewhat psychedelic project that combines lyrical ability with a unique style that I haven't seen around before.  I was holding myself back from blogging about the project because I knew I wanted him on the project.  So when he sent TR-3B, I knew I made the right decision.  Check out Ducktape  and also look into his affiliates.  Milo Hiroshima and Rglnd are both artists to keep an eye on as well.

#BRTHAN8TN TRACK NO. 07 @SUPERGILLES

#BRTHAN8TN TRACK NO. 07 @SUPERGILLES

TRACK NO. 07 of BRTH A N8TN features Atlanta's representative, Gilles. I first wrote about Successfully Lost a few months ago on the RA blog, which is how I heard of him. So when I asked the artists on the projects for tracks that were inspired by their environment, their city, their art, the summer or something that inspires/inspired them, I wasn't sure how personal they would get. Successfully Found is a powerful and personal track. I literally thought the track was a single he was releasing to post on the blog. But, luckily it wasn't and it was a perfect change of pace for BRTH A N8TN. Check out his track and his project, Successfully Found and Successfully Lost below.

I first heard of Versis in the video below, produced by Blu.  So when the LA native submitted his track, Apparition, it was obvious to me that it was perfect for this project.  It's a tribute to hip hop and it's a dope song for driving to, windows down. Check out Versis' track below and don't forget that the whole project (BRTH A N8TN) is available for free download at ra-nyc.bandcamp.com.

Here's a Versis EP from last summer. Check it out
