D Valley & Cam The Mac – “How I Play It”

Northwest duo D Valley & Cam The Mac return with a new single “How I Play It.” The single is about the hustle in the streets and how each rapper approaches the game. From mackin’ to moving packs, the guys break down the plays over clean production with smooth lyrics.

Carrying a smoked out melodic vibe on the track, “How I Play It” takes listeners on a trip touching down in Las Vegas for a red carpet event that exhibits the bossed up big money lifestyle we’ve come to expect from this Seattle duo.

TheSource, HipHopSince1987,YouHeardThatNew, TrapsNTrunks, DirtyGloveBastard and several others have supported this Seattle duo thats reminding everyone that Seattle isn’t what everyone thinks it is.

“This song is about each of our approaches to life after incarceration and how we maneuver each of our hustles. It’s all about your mindset after being faced with defeat. How are you gonna play it next? Cam the Mac explained.
Representing the Central District, also known as the “CD,” and West Seattle respectively, D Valley & Cam the Mac are from different parts of the city but have a similar vision that’s finally coming to fruition online and in the streets.

“Dream Come True has made a big impact on the net and the streets these past few weeks and has everyone talkin about the video and the quality of it. I plan on continuing to network with bloggers and other entrepreneurs to spread the word about this package we’re getting ready to deliver to the world,” D Valley said.

There’s no doubt, they both have that hustler’s mentality and it’s all set to culminate with their Curren$y Exchange project set to release this Fall.

Marv Allen – “Money Up” Ft. Money Bagg Yo (Prod By Mr. Hanky)

Marv Allen has teamed up with Atlanta hit making producer Mr. Hanky and rising rapper Money Bagg Yo for his latest Summer anthem “Money Up”.

The infectious, mid-tempo party jam has been rapidly gaining radio play across the Southeast and building anticipation for his forthcoming LP S.O.N (Something Outta Nothing).

The song is in rotation at Hot 107.9 and 94.5 Streetz in Atlanta while also gaining momentum in Atlanta clubs.

In addtion to the radio airplay Marv Allen has shows lined up throughout the Southeast this Summer where he will be touring in support of the new single.

“Because of my background coming from a party city, I like to make party music but I just can’t say anything in my music,” Marv explained. “I make feel-good music, but it has to have some lyrical content.”

Influenced by the New Orleans rich musical legacy, Marv Allen has always notes second line brass bands like the Hot 8 and Rebirth, to multi-platinum rap labels Cash Money and No Limit as early influences to making his own music.

Marv Allen was born and raised in Uptown New Orleans’ infamous 10th Ward. His mother, her 11 siblings and their children shared a small apartment in the city’s now-demolished St. Thomas Housing Projects.

Coming up in poverty, he was surrounded by thugs, drugs and violence but music was an escape that made the ghetto not seem so rough.

The Crescent City’s native has an uncanny style that blends hip-hop with R&B and a tinge of the city’s signature sub-genre bounce,

This multi-talented musical maestro has been steadily fostering a loyal fan base with a string of singles that stretches from his Louisiana breeding grounds to his current home of Atlanta.
