Jared Evan has returned to set off the new year with a brand new single produced by The Arcitype! Check out "Enemy" below and be sure to search it out on all digital streaming platforms as well!
The Arcitype took home the "Producer Of The Year" Award for the second consecutive year at this year's Boston Music Awards!
"Back to back. Boston, Thank You. I’m beyond humbled by the love and support you show me and the team of amazing artists, engineers, producers, etc who stand by me and help make the music we do. This same team who helped me make Torch Song, which won ‘Album Of The Year’ last night. I am nothing without them. They’ve won back to back. Boston, Thank You." - Arc
His group, STL GLD also took home awards for "Album of The Year" with 'Torch Song' [LISTEN HERE] and "Video Of The Year" with "Feels Like Home" featuring Dutch Rebelle, Tigerman Woah & Julie Rhodes, directed by Max Exposito (WATCH BELOW).
5 years ago this month, September 25th 2012 to be exact, The Arcitype and Ruste Juxx released their collaborative album "V.I.C. Victorious Impervious Champions" on AR Classic Records / Duck Down Music. As a relative unknown in 2012, it was the Arcitype's most visible project and an introduction to the industry of hip hop.
"V.I.C." paired The Arcitype's musical sample free production with Juxx's Crown Heights charisma and street knowledge. The results took both artists into new territories with songs and videos for "Rock To The Rhythm" and "Stand Strong" as some of the most memorable.
Reflecting on that experience, The Arcitype had this to say:
"Ruste was one of the first people that heard something in me as a producer and gave me a shot. One song turned into a full album at our first session. I’ve put a whole lot of music out since then, but this was one of those moments where I can say someone took a chance in me, and I won’t ever forget it. Much love to all the fans this project earned me. I appreciate all the support you’ve shown me over the years. "
Now in celebration of the beginning, The Arcitype releases a brand new song with Ruste Juxx and Reks, "Bang Bang". Raw and unapologetic, "Bang Bang" features a melodic Reks hook, fire spiting Juxx verses and signature Arc knock! Five years later the duo is still making noise and reminding everyone how the phony are dealt with...
It took much longer than Rock ever expected, but at last, he has released a solo album.
The Heltah Skeltah member pays homage to his longtime friend and partner-in-rhyme, the late Sean Price, with Rockness A.P. (After Price).
Rock’s 14-track debut includes the very personal Arcitype-Produced title track, which details the ups and downs of his career as well as his inability to resolve old issues with Price. The Boot Camp Clik MC’s LP isn’t meant to be a gloomy experience though. There’s plenty of entertaining cuts featuring the likes of Raekwon, Method Man, Inspectah Deck, Tek and Steele of Smif-N-Wessun, Buckshot, Ras Kass and M.O.P.
Esh has returned with a brand new full length album, 'Darwin's Frankenstein' featuring guest appearances from Mr. Lif, Moe Pope, Latrell James, Radclyffe Hall, Orchids & More. Production is handled by The Arcitype, Rain & LIghtfoot.
Esh has also released a new video to opening track on the album, The Arcitype-produced, "Release The Hounds" featuring Radclyffe Hall. Watch below:
STL GLD is back with their new full length album Torch Song! To celebrate the new project, they've dropped the first visual for the single, "Wild Style". Check it out and pick up the new project below:
Avenue is back with part 2 of "Nobody", this time he's got Ariez Onasis and Royce 5'9 with him. The three work their artistry over a triumphant musical bed courtesy of Cooking To Kill (Frank The Butcher & The Arcitype). Check it out and look out for Ave's 'Mass Ave & Lenox' album dropping in 2017.
I'm honored to named the 2016 Studio Producer of The Year by the Boston Music Awards. My category was filled with incredibly talented nominees and it was enough of an honor just to be listed amongst them. Thank you to all family, friends and fans that supported me by voting, you guys are amazing. Here's to an awesome 2017 filled with more great music! Cheers!
Avenue, born James Fitzpatrick, 25, effortlessly relays his street narratives over Cooking To Kill’s deft production while his city provides the backdrop gloriously bathed in vibrant streetlights and the falling night rain. Directed by FTB and shot by Jose Rodriguez, ‘Party’s Over (Ringing Off)’ brings us back to a time where rap videos were cinematic extensions of the music.
As the northeast winter approaches, the streets take on a far more ominous tone. The black and white clip captures that feeling while enhancing the song’s haunting melody as Avenue navigates through the Lower Roxbury and South End neighborhoods, Boston’s equivalent to the environments portrayed in HBO’s “The Wire” and UK’s “Top Boy”, as well as the city’s gritty Chinatown.
Avenue’s upcoming project Mass Ave & Lenox is coming soon and features Royce 5 9, Smoke Dza and label mates Deon Chase, Ariez Onasis & Prano.
La Coka Nostra drops the second single off their upcoming album, To Thine Own Self Be True, dropping Nov 4th, 2016.

The Arcitype has been nominated for Boston Music Awards in multiple categories this year! To show your support, cast a vote for him in these categories:
"Studio Producer Of The Year"
"Hip Hop Act Of The Year" with STL GLD
"Music Video Of The Year" for Slaine's "Pusher"
"Album Of The Year" for Reks' 'The Greatest X'
"Slaine released his comeback EP this weekend, Slaine Is Dead. Recorded amidst a fight for sobriety and other personal improvements, the veteran Boston, Massachusetts MC and actor heard about his absence. The La Coka Nostra member released the video for the title track—set in a graveyard. Up against the wall of naysayers, a fickle and fast-paced industry, and his own crippling demons, Slaine goes in. This song is the MC saying everything bad about him, so others can’t. And he does so with a really sharp delivery, and aggressive Boston brawler’s cadence."
- Ambrosia For Heads
Slaine releases the second single off his upcoming EP, Slaine Is Dead, which drops September 23 on AR Classic Records. The Arcitype-produced musical backdrop sets the tone as the artists to delve into the childhood dreams they each carried at an early age, depicting vivid imagery of what it was like growing up in their respective cities.
