The Foreign Exchange have been nominated for a GRAMMY!!!

It's about time!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Foreign Exchange's Grammy nomination video from The Foreign Exchange on Vimeo.

Friends and Family,

Last week, me and Nic’s lives were forever changed as The Foreign Exchange’s “Daykeeper” (feat. Muhsinah) was nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Urban/Alternative Performance category.

We haven’t come forward with a personal press release or statement of any kind because truthfully, the past week has been a whirlwind of events and its taken us awhile to really wrap our heads around all that’s happened.

Needless to say, we are both filled with feelings of shock, wonder, amazement, nervousness, humility, and extreme gratitude.

We have prepared a short video (with the help of our frequent collaborator Matt Koza), that describes the FE story and gives an overview of our journey from random obscurity to fully independent Grammy nominated artists. Consider this our pre-Grammy acceptance speech…lol. We encourage all of you to pass this along and spread the word, as we feel our story is a big inspiration to artists everywhere. Every once in a blue moon, the good guys do win.

We thank all of you for our continued support, and wish you a safe and blessed holiday season.

‘Te and Nic

VERY DOPE!!!!!!!!!!

Mixtape: eLZhi - The Leftovers (Unmixedtape)!!!

The Leftovers UnMixedtape is exactly what it sounds like: A compilation of one of the game’s most talented Emcee’s unreleased and featured works. Whether it’s a promo joint from a few months back (eLZhi and Black Milk – Deep), a feature from another artist’s project (Danny Brown – Contra feat. eLZhi), or just a rare gem from years past (eLZhi and DJ Dez – Living).

Youngs - Kinda Like A Big Deal Freestyle!!!

Normal, Illinois resident by way of Indianapolis and St. Louis, Anthony "Youngs" Short aka Landon Wordswell’s official introduction to hip hop came by way of the Black Star classic cut “Re:Definition”. Along with the likes of Rakim and C.L. Smooth, the record laid the foundation for the budding rhymeslinger’s throwback approach to art to emceeing. Now, having already teamed with Sammy Faze to form the internationally touring emcee tandem Kick Game Proper, and Grandpa-J® to drop the effervescent “Jeneration Gap EP“, Youngs will be returning on January 1, 2010 with a SoulTree laced EP chock full of narratives to serve as further audio illustration of his efforts to redefine the genre.

This nigga Spazzed out on this joint!!! Much respect!!!

Youngs - Kinda Like A Big Deal Freestyle

Phraze - I'm Vibin' (prod. by 9th Wonder) + Welcome To The Terror Dome ( Public Enemy Tribute)!!!

Phraze: I'm an MC born and raised in miami's dade county. My music is created to entertain and broaden people's horizons by looking at things in a different way. I feel like WORDS or LYRICS are the most important part of a rap song so i decided to name myself Phraze. Words have so much power and influence on people so i think they should be chosen very wisely. When im on the mic i can not give the listener BS to listen to. People's blood has been shed and lives have been lost for freedom of speech. So basically i am here to shine light where it is dark.

These two joints are off his mixtape "Jackin' 4 Beats Vol. 1" coming soon!!!
