Soduh & Butch Dawson - War Fever (video)

CCLS members Butch Dawson and Soduh dropped this Vietnam war era inspired visual for their explosive track "War Fever". What starts out as scenes of lighthearted jokes of comradery and joining the military leads into brutal beat and the harsh realities of war and the changes that occur. But that only just scrapes the surface of their uncanny ability to produce visual works that not only entertain, but that's thought provoking as well.

Black Zheep DZ - 8th World (Mixtape)

Since the release of his last project 'Refugee', Baltimore stand out Black Zheep DZ has been making waves, with tracks like 'Yesterday', "Whachu Sayin' and the recent  'Big Bank Rolls' Video he has solidified himself as one of the top up and comers in the area. 

"There's 7 Wonders of the World. An 8th wonder was always a question to people. I feel like my mind state and where I'm from (Baltimore, MD) is that 8th wonder that people don't get to see that often. My creation is a thing in it's own, which I like to call "8th World".
What you hear is what it is, man. Just some good ol' stories told on good ol' production, good ol' vibes, good influences, bad influences and all of what you can ask for from a nigga coming from East Baltimore, but has seen more than just that. Its just me. I put my thoughts, personality, my hometown, places I been and experiences into this project.
I also had some great features from my homie and ace from VA, D.R.A.M. and Baltimore-based singer, Chrissy Vasquez, along with some cool ass bonuses. Enjoy."
