ARTIST SELECT: FEATURING R.A. THE RUGGED MAN / TALIB KWELI / MASTA ACE – BY STICK N’ MOVE / MVMNT
R.A. The Rugged Man and Talib Kweli are two of the most respected lyricists of the modern era, and they made the dreams of hip hop fans worldwide come true with their recently-released smash hit “Learn Truth”. Now, with R.A.’s new album Legends Never Die in stores everywhere, we’re proud to present the official music video for the historic collaboration between former Rawkus labelmates. Directed by iconic NYC photographer Clay Patrick McBride, the instant-classic video is a powerful dose of knowledge from the two indie rap icons.
Legends Never Die is R.A.’s long-awaited new studio album, featuring appearances from the likes of Hopsin, Tech N9ne, Brother Ali, Vinnie Paz, Krizz Kaliko, Masta Ace, Sadat X, Eamon, and more. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and has already drawn widespread critical acclaim as one of the all-around best hip-hop albums of the year. “Learn Truth” debuted as the #1 most added hip-hop track at college radio, and is currently rapidly climbing the RapNetwork and RapAttackLives college charts.
ARTIST SELECT: PRESENTED BY STICK N MOVE / SHADOWBOX
As we transition from our second round of beta testing and analysis, its the proper time to launch a multifaceted piece on our interactive mag, exposing many of the musical artists we have connected with and/or whom have submitted to our network. Our multi-media platform offers artists worldwide an opportunity to work, earn, and share profits through our systematic and sustainable business/revenue model. Building out our infrastructure with new technology that’s permitting us to operate in the manner we envisioned, is a dream come true. And the dream we speak of, couldn’t ignite without one submission from an artist. From one, interest grew, and we must take our time to humbly thank so many of the creators (along with their: Bandmates, Agents, Labels, Managers, PR Representatives, Publicists, and/or Other).
Our lists boast more prospective participants than we could have ever imagined, that have submitted to our network to distribute, share, promote, and contribute their passion. It means more than words can say, and due diligence on our behalf, to support and promote their endeavors, is in motion 24/7 until the end of time. Please look for the new Shadowbox Platform on Blockchain arriving in 2019. For now, please look to Shadowbox MVMNT as we will be displaying a diverse tray filled with many of our submitted creators. I conclude by stating that the creative world is moving swiftly, you never know what you may have missed while soaking up another experience courtesy of the millions of artists making their presence daily. Therefore, while sharing the art of our contributors, content, commentary, and media listed is dated between 2014-2018. Again…..you may never know what you could have missed. Throwback and stay timeless…
Much Love & Respect, John Whitman, Founder, @shadowboxsocial
