Former Dipset honcho and all-around gangsta rapper JUELZ SANTANA will be dropping a new mixtape on DATPIFF on 1/14, his first in a very long time.

Additionally, Juelz will be making a rare stop in Upstate NY on Saturday, 1/14/13, when he hits Upstate Concert Hall (formerly Northern Lights) in Clifton Park, NY. Road trip!!! For any of you aspiring rappers and artists out there, the promoter is STILL taking submissions to open the show, but you’d better get on it immediately if you’d like to be considered.

Tickets are $23 at the door, and don’t be stupid… Security at the venue is super tight.

Gotta start the year off with a bang over here at LIVE HIGH FIVE! How about DJ MUGGS from Cypress Hill? Yep.. That’ll do!

Legendary DJ and producer DJ MUGGS needs no introduction, but I’m going to give him one anyway. As the beat maker and man in control of the 1’s and 2’s for Cypress Hill, DJ MUGGS has rocked crowds and invented some of Hip Hop’s most famous and recognizable beats. And the creative juice still flows!

Brooklyn, NY electronic duo BREAK SCIENCE are fantastic! Though the explosive popularity of Dubstep and EDM has flooded the musical market with many hard partying yet derivative mp3 jockeys, these Brooklyn boys offer so much more in terms of writing creativity, performance quality, genre blending, and musical innovation than most of their counterparts.

On a mission to “Unify The Music, Unify The People” and hailing from Springfield, Massachusetts, Fear Nuttin Band are turning heads and making plenty of noise in the Reggae-Rock circuit these days. Featuring a diverse cast of musicians from all over the world, the sextet’s multiple genre approach to recorded music and live performance makes for a great time in concert.

Whether sharing stages with musical legends like Steel Pulse or Toots and the Maytals, or packing clubs with newer bands like Tribal Seeds and Rebelution, Fear Nuttin Band aims to bring their hybridization of Rock, Hip Hop, and Reggae to audiences everywhere. Groups like Fear Nuttin Band are doing wonderful things to revitalize the Jamaican musical presence, and their distinct ability to blend and fuse musical stylings is something to behold.
