Sonny Cheeba featured on new Charles Herron LP
Cheeba and Suede have always lent their voices to support upcoming artists. The long awaited solo debut from Bronx born MC Charles Herron is no different. Camp Lo’s support of Charles Herron started when Cheeba and him met and continued with collaborations on multiple projects including The Charles Herron produced “Bill Cosby” that appeared as part of the 80 Blocks From Tiffany’s, Tiffany Blue Tuesdays Campaign with the Smoking Section/Uproxx. They would collaborate again on “Hotsauce” Tha Nighthawks (Charles Herron’s Group with Vinnie Knuckles), and now again on Charles Herron’s debut Solo LP as Sonny Cheeba lends a verse to “Let’s Roll” w Dee Richards. Charles Herron’s debut LP Herron’s Melody is 15 tracks of b-boy soul produced by Charlotte legends Fever and The Mighty D.R.
The album is available now on SE6 Records. Listen to Let’s Roll on soundcloud or on you favorite digital music platform.

Video: “Piece Of The Action / World Heist”
Camp Lo‘s seminal album, Uptown Saturday Night, just hit the 20-year milestone. To celebrate, Sonny Cheeba and Geechi Suede have rolled through with new visuals for “Piece of the Action/World Heist.” Produced by Ski Beatz, the track puts their iconic voices on full display and goes into an entirely different beat midway through the four-minute offering (the “World Heist” part of the song). This is a little taste of what’s to come from Camp Lo. The dynamic duo is getting ready to release a new album, On The Way Uptown, which presumably continues the story they began in 1996.
Thanks as always to hiphopdx.com for the write-up and push.
J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League – Money Dance II Feat. Rick Ross, Mack Wilds & Camp Lo
J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League decided to interpolate the classic “Luchini” track into their new record “Money Dance II” feat. Rick Ross & Mack Wilds, a sequel/redux to Ross’ Black Dollar single “Money Dance” f/ The-Dream. To take a level further, however, they brought in Sonny CHeeba and Geechi Suede to add new verses to the track as well. Good move.
“We just wanted to continue to raise the bar following the first one,” said J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League’s Rook. “We had nothing on the schedule, so I just came up with some chords, had Zach Wilson write a hook, and then we discussed who should sing it and we realized Mack Wilds was the perfect choice.”
Marvel Pays Respect To Gangstarr, Camp Lo, & Eminem
It’s been non-stop with Marvel Comics, their artists, & the release of their Hip Hop variant album covers for the past several weeks. We are glad to see them paying homage to one of the greatest underground hip hop groups of all time, Gangstarr. One of the sickest variants to date for their album “Hard To Earn” above. They also just released covers for Camp Lo’s “Uptown Saturday Night“, and Eminem’s “Relapse” below.
