A couple days after DJ Mehdi died, Mickey Factz decided to unearth a record he recorded with the world renowned DJ. Mickey was recording an album for Need For Speed: Nitro & wanted to use the Mehdi produced “K-1 Attack,” due to sample clearances, they both decided to create something new. “Cruisin’” was the outcome with beat drops & cuts from the producing team FKi, Mickey navigates through the song like a racer.

As strong supporters of Emilio Rojas throughout the years, we’re proud to see the kid grow. Every tape, he seems to not only grow as a person or artist but in reach as far as fans go. We still remember sending a leak out to our brother eskay, which eventually caught the eye of DJ Green Lantern, who is now representing E.R. in true upstate New York fashion. 585 WHAT UP!!
For Life Without Shame, Mr. Rojas showcases his life as of November 2010 with tales of living life with no regret. From grinding in Rochester to flights overseas. The signature Emilio Rojas flow is still on point, but now the sounds of B.o.B, Justice L.E.A.G.U.E., Needlz, Yelawolf, !llmind, and more provide the landscape for him to showcase his skills. If anything, listen to “Right To Stay” and let that concept record marinate for a bit.
Presented by DJ Green Lantern and Famous Stars & Straps.
