He's not from LA, but he's here...lives here, etc. But I'm posting because this is one of three artists Karmaloop interviewed this week and they're all different. From Kreayshawn to Soulja and Pusha T (which I'm looking forward to) it's interesting to see the same media company turn out such varying content. Check this out and enjoy as SB talks Anime, being on the Forbes list and more.

Bread gets down with Language Artz label mate Raven Sorvino for this track. It will be on the upcoming project War of the Mind: Prelude to the Brainstorm
Supernatural does what he's known for at the Red Bull Emsee Battle LA. Peep it out.
Last night while attending the Red Bull Emsee Battle: LA, Supernatural got up on stage and did his thing between rounds. This video will always be kind of special to me because Super nat actually grabbed my iphone and freestyled right into it and of course he did even come close to messing up. The night was filled with some dope performances from the likes of Charli 2na, Supernat and Kurupt and the main event was a corny freestyle competition that culminated with an actual battle between bay area stand outs Dirt Bag Dan and Cadillac Ron. Dan went on to win and will get to compete in the finals in Atlanta where Eminem himself will be one of the judges. Red Bull will have more video out soon and I may upload a few other surprises later today. - BMUSE

Yo, Here's my beat tape I been talking about for the longest. The title/artwork is a recreation of Miles Davis album "Bitches Brew".

Hope you feeling it. - LaVish
