Here's a video for our hometown emcee Cooly Sha's "Jezzebelle" freestyle that I found over at the big homie Mallie's blog site, CallMeMallie.com. Cooly has been droppin' mixtapes for about 5 years along with numerous shows throughout the SW region, earning himself a reputation as one of NM's most respected emcees. For those who don't know, Cooly is affiliated with Royalty Life Records, a locally owned production company producing some of Albuquerque's most recognizable music today. To support Cooly Sha & Royalty Life Records, follow the links below. Enjoy the vid!

I just came across Maryland songstress Teisha Marie by way of Moovmnt.com filed under "Slept On Sundays", a phrase that says it all about this dope ass album! Check out this joint "Awaken" from her album Addicted To Life, a 14 track Soulful/Hip Hop vibe that has slid under my radar for far too long! Though this album was released in NOVEMBER OF 2008, It was destiny that I one day find this album and sure enough, I did, & now so have you. Buy the digital album by following the link below for only $4.50 or the CD for about 13 bucks then check Teisha's myspace page and her website.

(Strictly 4 My Soul Heads)... Soul Singer PJ Morton recently released his album Walk Alone which featured the single "The One". This is definitely Morton's best song on his album in my opinion while the rest of the album has more of a gospel vibe which i don't care too much for. However, if you're into gospel music, you might want to check this out so follow the link below. In the mean time cool out to "The One" & keep it locked @ The Lounge!
