Ok, so number 1; I didn't even know Ginuwine had a new track out and number 2; I didn't know the shit was HOT. Check out this new joint from Mr. Pony entitled "My Last Chance" produced by Brian Michael Cox from his forthcoming album A Mans Thoughts due to drop this Spring. Oh, and if you're wondering...yes, Timbaland will play a production big role in the album.

So your crew here at Super Official comes thru once again with some unreleased exclusive shit to talk about. The latest fine musical cuisine to cross our plate comes from UnderSound Music artist Eddie. Hailing from VA, Eddie brings something much needed to the music game...GOOD FUCKIN MUSIC. His latest project Sound Wandering hasn't been released yet, but we were fortunate enough to preview the entire CD. All I can say is, dope. From beginning to end my head knocked harder that crazy old man in an insane asylum banging his head against the wall. A mixture of Jazz, Hip-Hop, and Rock makes this project a must have for any true hip hop fan or anyone tired of doing the "Stanky Leg" or "Bird Walk".
As I previously mentioned, the CD hasn't been released yet so for now check out the track "One Man Band" from the album featuring E-Major.

Aksys Games, a leading publisher of interactive entertainment products, is excited to announced the partnership of Triumvir and Aksys Games on an extraordinary project. Combining the forces behind BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger and the influential fashion design of Triumvir, fans of both brands can definitely expect some invigorating clothing line that sports the uniqueness of independent streetwear brand, Triumvir as well as the wild character designs of BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger!
"With Triumvir’s expansive knowledge of the fashion industry, it only makes sense for Aksys Games to collaborate with them and bring about the next step for our BlazBlue brand," states Akibo Shieh, President, Aksys Games. “If fans thought they seen it all, wait till they get a load of what Triumvir has in store for everyone…"
"It was only natural for Triumvir to jump at the chance to collaborate with Aksys Games on the BlazBlue project. Just having any linkage to the developers (Arc System Works) of the Guilty Gear series is an honor and an accomplishment, not only for Triumvir but for myself as well..." states Brandon Cheng, Creative Director, Triumvir.

So it's been a while since we've posted some Jigga shit, but its also been a while since Jigga released some shit to post. haha. Check out this new joint from Jay that surfaced recently. Apparently Jay-Z wrote this track for Puff but I guess Hov decided it was too hot to let go. Sounds like it should have been on the "American Gangster" soundtrack to me. Partake in the download below...oh yeah, this is the tagless version. Enjoy!

You heard him here first on Super Official, and because we know you loved his music (we've said it time and time again, "If it ain't hot, we don't rock it" so of course YOU love his music haha) here's the new mixtape from multi-talented artist Jae. It doesn't get much better than this folks, Hip-Hop, R&B, and Soul all wrapped into one mixtape package. Check it out, and do yourself a favor and have your hand ready to hit the repeat button on the CD player.

To those of you who are moved by the funky, energetic, banging, bassy-heavy, sexy, raw feel of your favorite hip hop, reggae, house, 'dance' music, and all the peripheral genres...this Saturday, March 28, DJ Underdog and Cam Jus present the "Otherside" party at Selam Bar in Washington DC.
Official recently dropped four new styles of their Neu Camp 5 panel campers for Spring/Summer 09 on their online store. Highlights included the Official's 3D bike chain print in two colorways, the Catalunya (Blue/Red Plaid) and Catalina (Orange/Blue Plaid) fabric based styles just dripping summer, and the flagship Neu Camp piece for the season, the Bleujack Camper.
This is the second season of Official's 5 panel camper silhouette. The brand differentiates it's 5 panels with the rest of the lot by constructing with premium details and finishes such as 8 rows of visor and undervisor stitching (as opposed to the typical 3 or 4). Branded taping on the interior of the hat, premium fabrics and fully labeled. The most distinctive features to Official's camper is the slightly deeper fit than most 5 panels and the flat visor rather than the unsightly molded visors often used for this style.
Jump spring and summer off correctly with Official's 5 panel campers. Easy on the boat shoes and boat shoes hybrids.
Boy oh boy do I love it when cats hit me up and tell me they have dope music and its actually TRUE!!! The latest on the scene that fits the bill is Portland artist Luck-One. With a new mixtape out entitled "Beautiful Music" produced entirely by Dekk. This latest project confirms that new music continues to become worth-while listening to.

We'll be the first to tell you that we are huge Fabolous fans here at Super Official. So when we see tracks by and/or featuring my dude Fab....well, we post that shit. haha. Next up to bat is a track by Al Be Back featuring Fabolous. The track is called "Mira Mira" and while 99.9% may not have heard of Al Be Back (We're guilty of that, cause I didn't know who the hell this dude was until now) the track is actually pretty catchy. Check it out...

Cali based brand IM KING (Imaginary Kingdom) gives us a look into their upcoming 2009 Spring/ Summer collection. We see a whole new range of cut and sew items for the new season including knitted v-necks, cardigans, denim, shorts, jackets, fitteds, and more. Check back for release dates and availability.
"You can tell by my watch, I been rich a long time ago!" If you're rockin one of these timepieces then that line should be your ring tone. Check out the new "Bapex" Military Watch from BAPE which come in a green and navy colorway. The watches feature the Bape logo head on the dial and a cotton bracelet. But don't worry, these watches are "Bapex" not "Rolex" so the new military timepieces will only set you back about $500.00. Recession proof...I think not.
The new "Bapex" Military Watches are available now via the BAPE online store.
For their 2009 Spring collection, Japanese brand Maharishi hooks up with The Andy Warhol Foundation on a new t-shirt and hoodie design.

For those of you who don't know my brother Brian aka "Johnel", well let me bring you up to date. This dude is one of the most talented R&B artists out! Only one small problem, he stopped singing in fear that he lost his mojo. Clearly from this next track that isn't so.
This is one of the last tracks Johnel recorded before he left the scene. The joint is called "Get Away" and unfortunately we never were able mastered since J stopped feeling music (but dont worry, the sound quality is still good). I've been posting a lot of his material lately in hopes that he will see how talented of an artist he is and get back on his grind. If you wanna share you thoughts on his music with him, feel free to hit up his Facebook page. In the meantime, check out this latest joint. Enjoy!

Got this joint in my inbox a few days ago and completely forgot to post it (my bad Xpress). From upcoming artist Chris Sims check out this dope track that's already picking up major buzz on the blogosphere.

The radio rip of this joint was floating around the net a couple of days ago, but we cant deliver sub-par music quality to our fans here at SxO. So, without further ado here's the official CDQ version of the new track from Wale featuring Lady GaGa off Wale's upcoming debut album. I know it's Sunday, but we aim to deliver.

My man Yeezy has his hands in about every cookie jar out there. In his latest venture, Mr. West is set to guest start in the "Family Guy" spinoff "The Cleveland Show" as a failed rapper named Kenny West. Kanye does have the personality to star as a cartoon character and he's reported to possibly be signed into appearing in 21 episodes when the show airs next year.
Clothing store Hot Topic just linked up with The Cool Kids for a new "TCK BBQ" t-shirt. This collab is a little strange to me being as though Hot Topic is a little....dark. Anyway, the tee is available now via the Hot Topic web store for a recession proof price of $6.98.
Sooo while most of the blogsophere is posting that Pimp C x Lil Wayne shit, Super Official stays true to its roots and big up's another one its favorites. Check out a new track from Charles Hamilton entitled "More C Food". I admit, "Brooklyn Girls" is still my favorite CH track but this new joint is knocking. Take a listen...

In what could be one of the dopest collabs of the year, here's a preview of an "alleged" collaboration between CLOT, Levi's Fenom, and Hong Kong brand fragment design’s Kazuki Kuraishi. Stay tuned for details.
Ever since Kid Cudi announced his retirement from the music game, shit has been coming out of the wood work! Here's a track by Kevin Rudolf that originally featured Rick Ross but now has Kid Cudi on the joint. I actually prefer this version better.

And, oh yeah, make sure you pick up Kevin Rudolf's album In The City available now at your local...music shop. Enjoy!
