Rhymefest 'Prosperity' video + ticket giveaway


Rhymefest's weekly video for this week is for "Prosperity", another Konee Rok directed flick that dabbles in between fun and serious. Fun because Rhymefest rocks a ridiculous wig as one of the characters. Serious because of Fest's messages that are brought out even more with the characters and concept. Here, Rhymefest explains:

"The title of the song is "Prosperity" and it's about televangelists and religious leaders that exploit people. One night I was watching TV and the televangelist said "GAWD, wants to change your life!" and it inspired me to write the song. In order to get the actors and actresses for the song, I sent out an open call through Twitter, Facebook & MySpace, and lots of people came out. My character Minister Mischief wants to save your soul and lighten your burden by lightening your pockets!"

- Rhymefest

El Che available now!

Donnis 'The Invitation' [MIXTAPE]
Hosted by: DJ Holiday & DJ Infamous (more info here)

Download the new mixtape from Atlantic Records signee, Donnis, above. It's called The Invitation and is a pre-cursor to the upcoming project, Fashionably Late.

It's definitely one to give a listen to and see what the buzz is around one of Atlantic's newest artists!

Donnis is also in Chicago this week, headlining the Digital Freshness presents... Fashionably Late at The Shrine on Thursday. We have a pair of tickets to giveaway to the first reader to e-mail us (gowherehiphop@gmail.com) the answer to the following statement:

Name all four (4) Chicago artists who Donnis appears with on the "Waddup RMX".

Also performing will be Rockie Fresh and Just Desserts and a listening party for Drake's Thank Me Later will be taking place as well. If you don't win, you can still grab presale tickets here. Good luck!

UPDATE: Contest closed. Congrats Adam S. - the correct answer is Big Homie D.O.E., YP, Mic Terror, and Scheme.

Private Banksy Film Screening - Ticket Giveaway

ExitThroughtheGiftShop Artwork.jpg

***UPDATE: [CLOSED]

The internationally known graffiti artist Banksy is here with the "world's first Street Art disaster movie". There is a private screening tonight at the Museum of Contemporary Art and I have 10 pairs of tickets to giveaway on a first come first serve basis. Email us at gowherehiphop@gmail.com if you're interested in some tickets, and we'll accommodate your party for tonight's Chicago screening at 7:00PM. The film "Exit Through The Gift Shop" will contain rare and exclusive footage of Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Invader, and many of the world's most infamous graffiti artists at work, on walls, and in interview. Check out the synopsis and trailer below to see if you're interested in going tonight! 

Exit Through the Gift Shop is a documentary about how an eccentric Los Angeles based French shop keeper turned documentary maker attempted to locate and befriend the renowned British graffiti artist, Banksy, while in the US, only to have the artist turn the camera back on its owner with spectacular results. This is the first feature film by Banksy who has previously resisted all attempts to be captured on film to avoid prosecution.
The film contains rare and exclusive footage of Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Invader and many of the world's most infamous graffiti artists at work, on walls and in interview. It provides an incredible insight into Banksy's world as he plans and executes one of his most audacious stunts at Disneyland. Exit Through The Gift Shop also goes behind the scenes of his hugely popular LA show - Barely Legal.
