Paul Wall [ft. Bun B & Kid Sister] - "Imma Get It" [prod. by Travis Barker]

Paul Wall stays tethered to his Texan rap roots on his new LP, Heart of a Champion. Many of the guest spots are taken by Houston heavyweights (Slim Thug, Lil' Keke, Chamillionaire, Z-Ro, Devin the Dude), as well as some of-the-moment non-Texan southern talent (Yelawolf, Jay Electronica, Yo Gotti). All in all it's nothing out of the ordinary, except for an unusually gully verse by Fool's Gold first lady Kid Sister. No idea how this oddball collab came about, but it definitely works.

Heart of a Champion is out today: Amazon, iTunes. And seriously, if you haven't checked out Kid Sister's Ultraviolet (Amazon, iTunes), please do. Really solid pop album—ignore the Pitchfork bull and give it a whirl.

The State of Local CD Street Sales with Epiphany and Sean Fresh

Little Rock MC Epiphany and R&B crooner Sean Fresh just launched the I Am the Life blog, which maily deals with celebrity-circuit gossip and commentary but also dips into local matters. This slightly NSFW video finds the two of them in downtown Little Rock examining the state of recession-era local CD hustlin':

Quote of the day:

"I NEED you to buy my CD for like five dollars." - Sean Fresh

In other news, Epiphany has been floating me some of this flips and original tracks lately, so I thought I'd throw them in a zip file for easier consumption. The following joints are included (all NSFW):

• Epiphany [ft. Scotty Su] - "The Come Up"
• Epiphany - "Still 5 on It" [Flip of "I Got 5 on It" by Luniz]
Paul Wall [ft. Webbie & Epiphany] - "Bizzy Body (Remix)"
