DMV Label Signs Canibus – Album Dropping February

Posted in News on 01/06/10


“DMV Record Label “War Lab Records” Signed Canibus in September. Upcoming album “Melatonin Magik” dropping Feb 9th. (War Lab is ran by DZK & F.a.T.. two Northern VA artists) F.a.T has done shows with XO, K-Beta, Kingpenslim, Etc.

Long considered being one of the best lyrical freestyle rappers ever, Canibus has proven he has few equals when it comes to spitting off the dome and even more so in making solid independent albums. As a master of the indie game, Canibus prepares to release his new album “Melatonin Magik” Feb 9th on War Lab Records.

In a modern telling of the story David vs. Goliath, Canibus has once again proven that he is the modern day David by stepping to some of the greatest to have ever blessed the mic. Known best for his epic battle with LL Cool J, Bus’ has moved on to bigger and better prey this time, with the calculated Eminem diss track “Air Strike (Pop Killer)” Featuring D12 and VA based rapper DZK.

Being consistent with his theme of reclaiming Hip Hop for what its true calling is, Bus’ includes “Hip-Hop Black Ops” that likens the corporate evil empire forces as those that are hurting the culture the most. Considering it an act of war, Bus’ considers “Melatonin Magik” as his pre-emptive strike.

After starting his career with Fugee member Wyclef Jean, Canibus engaged in a long-lived beef with LL Cool J that propelled his stature to a God of the Hardcore Underground.

From his first album “Can-I-Bus”, Canibus followed up releasing “2000 B.C.” and “C True Hollywood Stories”, both of which landed in the Billboard Top 200. Having eventually released 8 full-length albums with aggregate sales close to 1,000,000 units, Canibus established a loyal fan base of followers who anticipate each new release as their glimpse into what is really going on in the trenches of the fight for Hip Hop Culture.

Tune into the next chapter in the Canibus saga when “Melatonin Magik” hits stores Feb 9th.

Today Is World AIDS Day. Know Your Status.

Posted in News on 12/01/09


In 2007, the District of Columbia reported a far higher rate of AIDS diagnoses than any other area (though the rate in the wider Washington area was surpassed by other metropolitan areas). A 2009 local government report found the capital city had an HIV prevalence rate of 3%, including figures as high as 7.2% for 40-49 year olds, and 6.5% for black males.

AIDS diagnosis rates in New York State, Florida and Maryland were much higher than the national average of 12.7 cases per 100,000 population per year.

Please know that it’s not a game out here in the DMV area. My fellas, wrap it up each and EVERY time. You are not IMMUNE!!! Sistas, don’t let a guy sweet talk you into having sex unprotected. A few minutes of fun is not worth a lifetime of pain.

Wizards Jamison BasketballFrom NBC4:

The man who brought the NBA and the NHL to the nation’s capital in the ’70s has died.

News4 received the sad news Tuesday that Washington Wizards owner Abe Pollin, 85, has passed away. Washington Sports & Entertainment offered no further details.

“He was just one giant of a man,” Councilman Marion Barry said.

Abe and Irene Pollin have had a profound impact on sports and the community in the D.C. area.

Abe Pollin was born in Philadelphia and moved to the area with his family when he was 8. He graduated from The George Washington University in 1945 and worked for his family’s construction company until he and his wife launched their own in 1957.

Abe Pollin would have turned 86 next week.
