There's something to be said about a little hard work and how it never hurt anybody. Quite frankly, we think a little hard work can get you everywhere and anything.

Jamaican-American rapper Mike Beatz has created a notable production resume in his 25 years that includes T-Pain and Trina as well as releasing some thoroughly enjoyable mixtapes.

Lex One's blog Get That Paper Son (GTPS) is an ethos that transcends the clichéd ideology that hip-hop has unfortunately fallen into. It's not about the bling and the almost mandatory falling into the foils of the nouveau riche, it's about truly understanding and representing the culture.

In four short years, these guys, along with Pusher FM, managed to carve a niche in the rap world with their danceable and conscious racket as Wizard Sleeve.

Well, the sleeves are pulled and here's the next round of wizardry from these two in anticipation of their upcoming album No Prisoners.

"My Own Worst Remedy

What's funny about this track -- the first one with a video they released for the upcoming album -- is that in a way, it presents Lex's personal tales of woe (that we highlighted in the "see also" link). That time when he decided to move to New York after closing down his street-wear boutique/recording studio and ran afoul of Budget Car Rental and one determined Virginia State Trooper.


"Kill Em"

As hapless soldiers go, Lex One and Mike Beatz are bested by a beautiful woman in the manner of Greek tragedies in this second video. According to Lex, "We're out chasing this booty monster and she pretty much kicks our asses. Clearly, we were some sort of fucked up soldiers." Indeed.

Look for the album to drop sometime in September, proving that the dedication and hard work these two have put into their craft and into the state of hip-hop in Broward county is all worth it in the end.

Start working at home with Google! It's by-far the best job I've had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this - 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail
