Urban Kings has a really cool idea and has featured some dope artists in short music videos we call “UKMG 16/8″. The idea of the 16/8 is simple, we record music videos in a format of a 16 bar verse and a 8 bar hook. Not only that, but we have no rules for the songs we want for a video. We could pick anything we want, but we always think of when fans ask about songs and why their is no music video for it. We take it into consideration and we come up with our decision. We can pick a classic track, a brand new one, one that was a fan favorite, or even a unreleased track. This episode we featured artist Jasper Loco and his song Eastside Riding from his collaboration album with Baby Jokes called “Eastside Classics“, available now on all Major Music Retailers, like Amazon and FYE, and digitally on iTunes! Below is his album cover and links to order!

A new iteam to add Urban Kings collection…..a boxing glove autographed by Oscar de la Hoya. Mike went to his signing and as a gift he gave him a CD from Urban Kings but what he forgot was that he left the CD in the car because he was listening to it on the way to the signing. The only thing that was inside was his business card. So Oscar if you tumble across this we fired Mike lol (JK) but he says my bad. Call him up and thank you for signing our glove.

Urban Kings along with Lineage Entertainment Group is proud to announce we have started season 2 of our popular “Out The Box” series, which features amazingly talented artists from Los Angeles, California. We have already filmed and completed the first episode of season two, which is called “Mister” and features Tui Asau. You may recognize Tui’s work before, as he was featured in Out The Box season one, episode three, called “Spoken Words“, which he did a beautiful acoustic song with his guitar. This time, he did a different type of episode, one that is dark and twisted and you can only watch and listen to the story he tells. We are working on the official trailer for the episode, which will be coming out soon. But until then, we wanted to release the official flier for the episode, so make sure you tune in, and without further ado, here is Season 2, Episode 1 of Mister, staring Tui Asau.
