“RIP has carved up his Midwest block since 1990. Having rapped with Wikit Kimistry and Eargasm Entertainment, he now fronts Soultaker Records, the label behind his recent solo release Theory of Rap. With “Intro,” there’s this scientific lecture, and I wonder “what the hell,” until it dawns on me: RIP is laying the groundwork for his “theory.” ......”

“Unique is what you get when you jam out to X-men. This band is not your typical rap group with their twist of rap, gospel and R&B-like genres in combination to make a sound unlike any you would have heard before. X-men have released a CD titled "The Newbreed Generation" that features four artists, two of which are students at Washburn....

“Brail’s ‘Google Me’ latest craze. http://splash.topeka.net/content/brail%E2%80%99s-%E2%80%98google-me%E2%80%99-latest-craze”

“A young creative guy, named Brail, out of Topeka, Kansas decides he’s going to re-invent hip-hop… he has his own unique style and feels he can infuse the genre with new energy. Nobody is lining up to fund his career, however. Well, somehow he pulls together the connections and resources to record some tracks… garners the interest of RIP and his Michigan-based label, Soultaker Records who decides to get behind him and get this guy’s music out there. The label starts texting about him, twittering about him, and, as a matter of fact, they even offer a free download of his entire debut 20-song release, Justice is Blind, from Brail’s myspace site (just downloaded it myself, as a matter of fact). The label is also giving away 1000 free CDs to fans. Brail looks for every opportunity to perform and interact with a growing base of fans. From all indications, he fully intends to set the world of hip-hop ablaze and his label seems to believe he’ll do just that.”

“RIP’s latest mix tape, “Market Saturation: Wave 1" is a tour de force in content, conception and production. And it’s also a refreshing change for a local mixtape, not only in because of the themes, but in the way it is being distributed. While most mix tapes are offered for between 5-10 dollars by local artists, RIP is bucking that trend by offering “Market Saturation: Volume 1" for free via digital download. He’s also giving away 1000 autographed physical copies of the cd. --- Visit the link for the full review http://blogs.cjonline.com/index.php?entry=6798”
