New Rhythm & Soul Hop from Nino Augustine | Nino Augustine & the OPE Band - Blow (Free Download)

Last year, the WUW? crew voted Nino Augustine's debut album From the Bottom of My Soul one of the top 13 hip hop albums of 2013

Rapping personally vulnerable and socially conscious lyrics, Nino Augustine elevates his style above the hip hop game and crosses over into the soul and R&B realm (no not like Drake but actually in an organic artistic way). 

The whole WUW? office was excited to hear this new single from Nino Augustine and the OPE band and we are impressed with his growth as an artist and lyricist. 

Stream "Blow" below and be on the look out for the new album in October.
Follow Nino on the Twitter and head over to for more music and videos!

J. Cole Responds to the Michael Brown Murder | J. Cole - Be Free

J. Cole posted posted this song overnight. His words are more powerful than ours, so we will cut and paste his statement from his Dreamvillain blog.
"There was a time in my life when I gave a fuck. Every chance I got I was screaming about it. I was younger. It’s so easy to try to save the world when you’re in college. You got nothing but time and no responsibility. But soon life hits you. No more dorms, no more meal plan, no more refund check. Nigga need a job. Nigga got rent. Got car note. Cable bill. Girlfriend moves in and becomes wife. Baby on the way. Career advances. Instagram is poppin. Lebron leaves Miami. LIFE HITS. We become distracted. We become numb. I became numb. But not anymore. That coulda been me, easily. It could have been my best friend. I’m tired of being desensitized to the murder of black men. I don’t give a fuck if it’s by police or peers. This shit is not normal.
I made a song. This is how we feel."
- Cole

"Rest in Peace to Michael Brown and to every young black man murdered in America, whether by the hands of white or black. I pray that one day the world will be filled with peace and rid of injustice. Only then will we all Be Free." - Cole
