SELECTED ARTISTS

P.SO the Earth Tone King
P.SO the Earth Tone King‘I always liked Dali’'Despite his admiration for Dali’s work, P.SO The Earth Tone King named himself after another great Spanish painter: Pablo Picasso. Why the New York lyricist chose to be named after a painter is clear on his latest effort ‘Feast Of Legend’. 'POSTED 09|08|2015
Pacifics
PacificsAfter dinner talk'I came across this fried chicken recipe on TV and put a little twist on it to make it my own. I made it every Sunday before the guys would come over. It became a weekly tradition. So, we figured why not name the album after that tradition.'POSTED 11|05|2005
Panacea
PanaceaFollowing the scenic route'My favourite thing to do with music is taking a serious subject matter for me, and colouring it with an imaginative world. It’s the best of both worlds. It’s like not from concentrate and from concentrate all wrapped in one.'POSTED 08|19|2007
Parallel Thought
Parallel ThoughtYoung and restless'It’s funny how some of our original beats still sound fresh today, because a bulk of our early production was scrapped. We were both young and learning the trade. I was samplin God-knows-what and getting drums that sounded like an obese bitch farting.'POSTED 11|02|2005
Parallel Thought
Parallel ThoughtBites The Apple''The challenges would be to make music that actually stands out and start a 'brand' of which people wanna be a part of. It's cliché to call it a 'movement', but growing a click that people feel a part of, seems the way to go.' 'POSTED 06|07|2012
Phashara (Beatmonstas)
Phashara (Beatmonstas)Walks his Own Path''What ever happened to taking pride in the art of rhyme and the culture of hip-hop? Yeah I think we know the code but the game is corporate now and the only code they respect is big money.''POSTED 04|13|2012
Pizdamen
PizdamenCrackin' a beer and some momma jokes'I met a girl from Poland about a year ago. Asked her if she knew what ‘pizda’ meant and she laughed her ass off. But she didn’t give me no pizda. So when you meet a girl from Poland, don’t say ‘pizda’. Say ‘Nostrovia’!'POSTED 02|02|2006
Praverb & The 4 P's:
Praverb & The 4 P's:'Focus on your fans and they will extend your career.''All the energy that goes into marketing an album, fizzles out after the release date. I try to empower artists to focus on extending the exposure for their album by spreading out the release of content. Artists have to remember that when your album is released a lot of people will hear your music. 'POSTED 01|21|2014
Preach
PreachGarveyism'I would give it a 10 based on what the album means to me. Will it be considered a classic by others? No. Did it break new ground? Maybe not. But dammit, it's my attempt to make the world better with my interpretation of my art.'POSTED 03|10|2007
Project Move
Project MoveUnraveling the butterly theory'The notes and e-mails that we get are very inspiring. Ranging from people telling us we helped them get through a rough time in their life, to another telling us we're living breathing testements that hip-hop is still alive and not going anywhere.'POSTED 09|22|2006
Pseudo Slang
Pseudo SlangPseudo-intellectual xtracts of slang'I’ve always identified with the name Pseudo Slang in the sense that the material is not quite the usual serving of hip-hop slang, and at the same time a convenient merging of the two groups. 'POSTED 09|07|2009
