Exclusive: Trackademicks "Stop It!" feat. Mistah F.A.B.

Trackademicks - Stop It! feat. Mistah F.A.B. by The Honor Roll

Released by: HNRL Music
Release/catalogue number: HNRL 0001

"Mr Braggadocio, why you rappin' so-so/
You used to a showboat, but nowadays it don't float..."

I'm gassed to drop the next single off of my upcoming album State Of The Arts. This one features my long time homie and collaborator Mistah F.A.B. I can honestly say I don't know anyone who loves the grind more that this dude, so it was only right to get him on the track to give his perspective about it.

Songs like this and "Fool On The Hill" are really what State Of The Arts is all about.

Artistic Integrity.

Live from the Standard: Topsidin'

Trackademicks- "Topsidin'" LIVE at the Standard DTLA.

This is footage I found on youtube from last year of one of the shows I did in LA. It was off the hook, as you can see. The real reason I'm posting this is because, despite record highs this week, we didn't really have a summer in the Bay. Yes, I'm living vicariously through, well, myself.

"Topsidin'" available now on iTunes courtesy of Fools Gold!
