In the wake of all of the discouraging injustices we have witnessed in 2014, R&B crooner Case has resolved to let his voice be heard. With a powerful rendition of Marvin Gaye’s “Inner City Blues” alongside a heartrending visual, Case is using his voice to verbalize what many are feeling. Listen to Case's rendition here.
"If all men are created equal then all men should be treated equal, and it is through love, peace, service and respect that we experience that equality. Until the judicial system of the United States of America rids itself of the systemic virus of righteousness and its symptoms, which are racism, sexism and discrimination of all kinds the words of the constitution will be nothing more than a 'nice idea." ~ Case
Case is putting the final touches on his new album, "Heaven's Door," which is slated to be released in spring 2015. Fans can look forward to the lead single, "Shook Up" which will be available on iTunes January 13, 2015.

MC LYTE SEIZES THE THRONE BY MIXING MUSIC AND MISSION with NEW RELEASE BALL

MC LYTE is baaaaaccckkkk!  "BALL" is a high energy, hard hitting single that infuses a crazy lyrical style with a dynamic video set amongst Asian culture.  With quick lyrics and bold dancers who flaunt crisp choreography around the multi-talented actor/rapper/dancer -- Lil Mama -- and a catchy hook with an old-school flavor belted by the talented singer and producer, AV, "BALL" is an inspiring yet millennial video for the whole family that solidifies MC Lyte's position on the Hip Hop throne of musical relevance.  Like MC Lyte's recent single release, "BALL" fuels an international campaign highlighting her philanthropic efforts aimed towards redefining hip hop's global influence; she will commence upon a cross country holiday media tour promoting her recent releases, her upcoming album, her health and beauty tips, and her foundation's EducateOurMen initiative (www.educateourmen.info).

Less than 2 months ago, on September 9, 2014, the world experienced the musical genius of MC Lyte's first Billboard charting single in 11 years:  the ground-breaking urban hit "Dear John," featuring Common and 10 Beats. 


"Dear John" is the anthem for #EducateOURMen, which is the signature scholarship initiative of MC Lyte's Hip Hop Sisters Foundation, which has presented two $100,000 university scholarships during the Soul Train Music Awards Red Carpet Pre-Show each year since the organization's founding.  MC Lyte stated that this year, the foundation will present dozens of scholarshipsearmarked to send men of color to HBCU's, and she quickly followed up on that commitment with this past weekend's red carpet announcement.

Russell Simmons, Dr. Benjamin Chavis, Jada Pinkett Smith and Faith Evans are just of the few celebrities who support the foundation's movement (www.EducateOURMen.info).
