Los Angeles, CA (PressExposure) December 11, 2009 -- The numbers are in as Teruo Artistry and its music division, Semper Somnio, have made their mark in the mixtape world with the release of their debut street album, Endangered Species with DJ Skee. The mixtape, which dropped Tuesday, November 10th, has been featured on sites including BallerStatus.com, Y2KDaily.net and MixtapeKings.com to name a few. Since its release, Endangered Species has received over 30,000+ downloads affirming that artists Prophet, Six Reasons and producer Deep Watters are here to stay.
DJ Skee who has DJâd and produced for popular artists such as Jay-Z, Akon and Bay Area bred Ya Boy, hosts the Endangered Species project. Amid 21 insane tracks produced by Deep H2OZ, Teruo Artistry stakes its claim in the mixtape world and rightfully so. On tracks such as âRespect My Freshâ, artist Prophet proclaims his lyrical ability and Bay Area freshness with lines like: âIâm in the building and Iâm feeling like Yee/AR-15 donât run up on âPâ/Mission & sixteenth to cop more leaf/Then Iâm back in the streets/Iâm a mutha****** beast!â
âWe wanted to get music back to where it was,â says Six Reasons. âNowadays, the love for music is not required which is why I believe sales are down and people arenât purchasing music. When creating this album in mind, we wanted it to be real, feel real and sound real.â
âAs diverse as music is, you barely hear it on the radio,â states Prophet. âWe were tired of hearing the same songs released by the same artists. We hope that with this project, we have inspired true artistry to take its rightful place in music once again.â
Recently, Teruo Artistry released its fall men and womenâs clothing collection that can be found in boutique stores around the country; in addition, Six Reasonsâ new single, âJet Blueâ is currently spinning on Los Angelesâ Power 106-FM. Endangered Species is available via digital download on Semper Somnioâs website: [http://www.sempersomnio.com]. For more information, please visit: http://www.teruo.com.
