Grieves & Budo Announce On The Rocks Tour

Rhymesayer’s very own Grieves & Budo are proud to announce the upcoming “On the Rocks Tour” taking place this holiday season. Their third consecutive tour since the start of The Vans Warped Tour will focus on areas missed during the Together/Apart Tour, primarily the East Coast and South. Joined by female Brooklyn/San Francisco rapper, K. Flay, the tour will bring the same high intensity of the sold out Midwest and Western US shows to fans old and new this winter.

Grieves’ recent release Together/Apart charted #1 on Billboard’s “Heatseekers Chart”, #13 in “Rap Albums” and #106 overall on Billboard’s “Top 200”.

Radio Personality Lynn Tolliver Releases Digital Single “I Cry” to Support Charitable Causes

Cleveland – When radio personality Lynn Tolliver puts his mind to something, he tends to get results. The popular Cleveland, OH disc jockey is the current host of “The Sunday Gospel Hour” on WCCD 1000 AM and “Sessions with Lynn Tolliver” on the Jay King Radio Network on BlogTalkRadio.com. Tolliver however, knows a little something about penning a classic tune. His 1983 song, “I Need A Freak,” was sampled by the Black Eyed Peas for the group’s hit single, “My Humps,” garnering him two BMI Awards and a Grammy! He’s hoping the digital release of his current single, “I Cry” (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/davetolliver1 ) makes a similar impact as proceeds from the sales will go to charitable causes.

“I Cry” written by Lynn Tolliver and performed by Men at Large recording artist Dave Tolliver, on Full Belly Records, is a beautiful, heart-wrenching ballad which speaks to the overwhelming sadness prevalent in the world day. Full proceeds from sales of the single go to two organizations striving to make a change. Tolliver is donating 50% to activist Yvonne Pointer’s non-profit organizations (http://www.yvonnepointer.com) and the other half to the Cleveland Foundation, (http://www.clevelandfoundation.org/) an organization that puts charitable dollars to work where they are needed most in the community.

When: Wednesday, October 26, 2011
9:30 p.m.

Where: The OCCUPY LA site
1st & Spring Street ( in front of City Hall )
Downtown Los Angeles, CA

Why: When filmmakers E. Raymond Brown and Williams Arntz (“What the BLEEP”) first released the independent movie “Ghetto Physics” in late 2010, they knew the film was an early battle cry, a wakeup call to America and beyond. The cutting edge hybrid documentary explored the dynamics of the ‘powers that be’ in laymen terms that the ‘man on the street’ could easily relate to. Inflation, foreclosure, unemployment, healthcare issues, pollution, crime, recession and depression: one percent was benefiting – pimping; and somebody, the other 99 percent, were being played !

Cut chase to the present, and the DVD release of “Ghetto Physics,” from Intention Media, accompanied by the manual, “GhettoPhysics: Redefining the Game,” finds itself smack dab in the middle of an OCCUPY movement which could have easily been a scene in the original film!

Explosive, controversial, insightful and comedic, “Ghetto Physics” is the Movie of the Movement and filmmaker E. Raymond Brown is emerging as one the OCCUPY movement’s more coherent and eloquent voices.
