1. Rise and Grind
2. Dance!
3. Runnin' Through Time

Listen to the single, "Dance!" here:

"...over beats made from a cat overseas..."

It's funny how some things just fall into your lap. That's what happened with this joint. We get a lot of dudes sending us messages trying sell us beats, do collaborations, etc., but this one was on some other ish.

I was going through our messages a few weeks ago and clicked on one from this producer Thallus out in Germany. The body of the message just said: "got some beats for u. here u go..." and then a z-share link. I like checking out beats that dudes throw at us, but usually we get a dialogue going before we exchange tracks. I ended up passing this one over because I thought it was some sorta scam or virus.

But I came back to the message a couple days later, and, being the beat-head that I am, I got a little reckless with it and downloaded it against my better judgment. I unzipped the file NH and found 14 fresh beats. 3 of them really stood out, so we just ran with those. We cheffed up some concepts, A-Live went to work, and a couple weeks later, we got a short EP for y'all.

I figure I'll just shoot Thallus a message back saying: "got some tracks for u. here u go...Green Street & Thallus - Rise and Grind

Check it out and throw us some feedback. And for those of you waiting for some new Renaissance beats, the wait is almost over. Peace.

The road to Lupe: Recap Part 1

ATTN: Please visit Chillyray's blog, MisterDev and Curioustidbits for more pics/video/comedy from the show!

I dont think words can describe the emotions/vibe from Weds night (no Robert Frost), it was CRAZY. Hands down, greatest show I have ever been a part of. If you have been living under a rock, we won the competition at Umass, and will be opening for Lupe Fiasco on May 3rd @ Umass.

To clear up the confusion, Ontrak is a label
owned by my boys Kharakter and The Flipside and Malado is the band that we always holds us down, composed of J Dodds (has worked with Beyonce, Usher, etc), G Skillz, and many others. When it comes to the Green Street/Ontrak connection...its a family affair.

I'm gonna let the Umass campus paper summarize what happened: Read article here . Lol, they quoted me on reckless, backstage ish, but its all good.

Now for some of the pictures:
