A Jack of All Trades

I met Melo maybe a year or so ago, worked together, and been linked ever since. He's a genius at several different expressions in an industry where most heads haven't even mastered one. With his upcoming album Mustafa's Renaissance along with a slew of other collaborative projects, the multi-talented Mustafa X is showing 'em what the word KING means. Take a listen to Treat Her Right, a great cut from the new project!

The Come UP Kids

Just when I thought these veterans were down for the count they come with new projects and new content while keeping in tune with classic skills. Check these artists and their upcoming projects!

Little Bit

Ya gotta love when other artists put a unique twist on things.

Lykke Li is a UK artist who just broke in the States. Her second US tour is underway so I suggest you check it out. Her whole swag is on point and I believe she's up for a '08 Woody Award. Keeping MTV's agendas in mind the 'U'niversity channel puts a lot of indie artists on. Lykke is a great representation of indie at its best.
