The Notorious B.I.G.'s presence is still felt 15 years after he died at age 24 in Los Angeles. His silky flow and crafty lyrics became a blueprint for a generation of rappers. Most rappers today would say that he influenced them in one way or another, but here are 10 artists we think were most influenced by Biggie Smalls.

This energetic LA band offers a musical interpretation of the state of the American life from a multicultural point of view.

“This record picks up where many artists left off in the early 70s,” says guitarist Michael Sanders.

Several Upcoming So. Cal Shows!

Vesper Public Relations. — Armed with a powerful and poignant message, new representatives of the hidden beauty and multi-dimensional spirit of LosAngeles, One Tribe Nation releases its new album “We Are the One”, the band’s musical reflections of the good, the bad, and the immense potential of America.

“I can tell you first hand that this group and their latest rola is a must for those that wanna feel that sweet Latino pride when listening to a record” says Frank Miranda President/CEO Star Sound Music Group – Hollywood, CA

In support of their upcoming album, the band is already scheduled for multiple performances and promotional interviews in the Southern California:

On The Rox (West Hollywood) on March 22
Max Steiner’s (Long Beach) on March 29
Radio Show: “Indies in Motion” (Hollywood) April 16
The Mint (Los Angeles) April 27

“We Are The One” is an album that consists of 11 tracks, including the politically charged title “The Enemy”, the love song “Don’t Let Me Down”, “The Only One”, “We Are The One”, “San Francisco”, “Free My Pain”, “Room To Breathe” , “Free My Pain”, “Don’t Let Me Down”, “Becky’s Song”, “Mended Heart” and the outspoken “It’s Time”, a track whose performance on the steps of City Hall during OccupyLA inspired a video by renowned filmmaker Leonardo Bondani, whose body of work includesMalditaVecindad, Tijuana No, Kid Frost, and El Vuh.

Check out the video “It’s Time” (Director’s Cut) a tribute to the world-wide movement inspired by Occupy Wall Street, that is continuously updated to include new footage as movement progresses.

Although the band was formerly a solo project for guitarist Sanders, this new record is true collaboration in which band members, Sanders, (vocalist) Quetzal Guerrero,and (bassist) David Filice,and (drummer) David Cowan contributed in a more creatively democratic process with the guidance of (producer) Chris Baseford, who’s worked with such heavy weights as Tommy Lee, John 5, and Rob Zombie, delivers the band’s diverse vision with a powerful driving punch that’s sure to keep listeners rocking and even dancing as they listen.

They also brought in session players Dave Schulz (Goo Goo Dolls, Berlin) on keys and well known and respected percussionists Chuck Prada(Sergio Mendes, Michael Jackson, Kelis) and Daniel de Los Reyes (Jennifer Lopez, Sting). The result is an honest portrayal of America today: A mosaic of love, strength, politics and its local repercussions, and the personal power to speak the truth and effect change starting with the individual.

“We really wanted to make music with substance that is relevant and inspirational to the listener,” says Quetzal Guerrero. The singer says that growing up as multicultural/multilingual American has always helped him understand and connect with different demographics of people.

“In our new album I believe we do exactly that, through our wide range of rhythms, styles and lyrics, One Tribe Nation attempts to find a common ground with everyone and connect with them on a musical level,” says the vocalist.

“For us, it’s not about blue, red, left or right, or any other device that’s used to keep us fighting amongst ourselves. It’s about those who build and those who destroy, and the reality is, we all choose a side in this battle by virtue of the decisions we make in our own lives each and every day,” says Michael Sanders, band-leader and guitarist.

Michael Sanders: Guitar
Quetzal Guerrero: Vocal
David Filice: Bass
David Cowan (YoungProfessor): Drums

This past January, Nick Cannon suddenly Reveals He Has Lupus-Like Autoimmune Disease! PDF Print E-mail
Written by HipHopNews24-7

This past January, Nick Cannon was suddenly rushed to the hospital for kidney failure. Although Cannon appeared to recover from the incident, a month later the radio host and Hip Hop media personality was forced to drop out of his radio show after suffering blood clots in his lungs.

 

Now, in a recent interview with People Magazine, Cannon opens up about his recent medical emergencies and their cause. He explained that doctors discovered that he suffers from an autoimmune disease akin to lupus which directly caused the failure of his kidneys.

"The blood clot thing was probably the scariest because...I've known people who have passed away from that," he explained. "I thought I was getting better, and then [the blood clots] happened, so that kind of came out of nowhere. I'm just trying to make sure I put my health first."

He also added, "[The kidney failure was caused by an] autoimmune disease that [doctors] found in my system. They kind of say [my] autoimmune [disease] is – like a lupus type of thing, but no one else in my family has it...it's a lot of stuff, but it's all in order now."
