2020 has had a lot of downs but career wise its been nothing but ups for Cuban Pete
From dropping 3 music projects, to his first time hosting an international mixtape, to commercial radio play, to rounding off the year with his first magazine cover!
Touted as "the most hated man in the UK" Cuban is maybe not, but he might well be within Hip Hop circles as will be evidenced in his upcoming release 'Everybody Hates Pete'.
In his interview inside issue 25 Cuban lays out his thoughts on white rappers, his haters, his influences, and whats coming in the new year for him and C75 Live.

Say Your Prayers is the lead single off the highly anticipated forthcoming album First Class: The Teachings from Staten Island native & Theodore Unit member, Solomon Childs & hip hop producer BigBob.
This project has little interest in chasing modern rap trends. The soundscape is steered with heavy classic drums, an antagonizing organ and dramatic martial arts samples, helmed by the creative vision of BigBob with fresh cuts and scratches from LD-ON-THE-CUT.
Solomon Childs works hard with gritty writing, solid vocals with a menacing style and flow. This track features Wu-Tang Clan affiliate, Shyheim to match & balance the spirit and energy of this dope track.

Cuban Pete sees out the year with ne of his strongest releases to date 'Crown Jewels' produced by the ever hardworking Bo Faat.
The opening track 'For The Gram' sees Cuban laying down some honest, and sometimes amusing, lines about the rap game.
This is followed by former Kool Keith prodigy Dane Uno trading bars with Cuban on 'Hall Of Fame'.
Regular Bo Faat collaborator, and Drunken Monks MC, Marz One pops up on 'Raise The Dead' where the MCs address the demons that surround them.
'Cut n Paste' is a solo joint that sees Cuban addressing the practice of rappers putting together cut and paste fan albums of features they've bought of dead or alive MCs, either to fulfill bucket lists or just for clout. Although Cuban works with a lot of artists, and has a lot of features on this project alone, he has always taken pride in having established relationships with those artists and helping each other build.
Ghetto Govt Officialz head, the legendary Heaven Razah (fka Hell Razah of Sunz Of Man), jumps on 'Hard 2 Smile' which sees bars of truth from both MCs on the world today. DJ E.Rex, aka Mr Scratchhook, is on hook duties.
'Seesaw Balance' is a collab with upcoming group Grimewav. Members Enels (who also mixed and mastered the track), Hanzo Bladez, and the recently freed Mo Rukuz, join Cuban for a no hook slice of dopeness.
'Burn', featuring Dro Pesci and DJ E.Rex on the cuts, was previously released as a single but is offered up here as a bonus track to commemorate the first real collab between Cuban and Bo.

Its been a quite an active 2020 musically for Krumbsnatcha aka Judah Tha Prince, releasing his album Unreleased in March and several singles including We Will Rise & Make Em Say.
In an effort to continue providing an uplifiting and positive voice during these very difficult times, the New England based MC returns with his lateset single from the upcoming Iron Lion of Zion album entitled Kyant Take I Power featuring upcoming Reggae artist Koki Man.
The song reminds us that we are greater than our obstacles as Koki Man boldly proclaims, "You cant take the powers of I&I", Rastafarian term that suggests a higher consciousness and connection between an individual and The Most High.
Judah Tha Prince aka Krumbsnatcha speaks on the challenge of dealing with a troublesome woman that has taken on the ways of the world which he likens to Delilah in The Bible. This fuse of Roots/Reggae and Boombap creates a mellow vibe as legend Barrington Levy can be heard in a sample over the heavy Roots precussion.
The single will be available on all digital media outlets on November 18 via Mind Power Entertainment.
