From July 4th Weekend 2012, we present this great video footage of Adam Warlock, Pruven and Cult Favorite rocking a mixed set together. They destroyed it at Red Square in Albany NY at the Annual Beat Shot Music Festival. Adam Warlock's Slugging Percentage, Pruven's Heathen's Anthem and Cult Favorite's Heavy Metal are among the highlights of this great nearly 30 minutes of live music.
July 6th and 7th brings the Beat Shot Music Festival to Albany, NY and Red Square. Uncommon artists ADAM and Pruven will be performing as well as Prog Rap cohorts Cult Favorite (A.M. Breakups & Elucid). The festival will go on for two days with the guys performing the first day on the Friday Night of Independence Day weekend. Also on the bill for this festival will be EDO G., El Da Sensai, J-Live, Torae, Kev Brown, Has-Lo and many more. In fact between the two days there will be approximately 70 acts hitting the stage. If you are in the Capitol region, this is a must see. Check out the event page on Facebook for more info!
Today, Uncommon Records releases Pruven's long awaited LP Stamina of Thought. With a sound that can best be described as quintessential hip hop, Pruven delivers thought-provoking, razor-sharp lyrics that just might cause folks to stop nodding their heads long enough to write an e-mail to their Congressman. The Connecticut-based emcee brings a soulful respect of hip hop’s heyday to the present-day scene, leaving listeners wondering why they haven't been listening to Pruven for years.
You can pick up Stamina of Thought at our Online Store, Itunes, Amazon or any other digital retailer worldwide. For this first week we're also going to be giving away one of Pruven's songs for FREE exclusively in our online store, Repeated Questions.
