Over the last several weeks, many different artists have released new songs in advance of the different projects that they're working on and I have a couple of them here for you to enjoy.

The first song is by A-Biz, a microphone veteran that is reportedly working on a new album. The new song is classic A-Biz for those of you who are familiar with him. If you aren't familiar with A-Biz, it's about time you look into him. Go to Uni.Fi's Web site to learn more about A-Biz. "MKE Nocturn" is produced by Dave Derrilykt.

The next song is a raunchy romp by hip-hop duo The Hollowz. "Your Place (Or Mine...No Yours)" is a very slick track over a fantastic 8-bit beat, but it is the type of track that will make your cheeks blush fire engine red if you're not accustomed to music of the overtly sexual nature. The Hollowz are also releasing a new album this Saturday at the Bay View Brew Haus and I am going to let you know what I think about it this Friday.
