Kingsway Music Library is very proud to release an innovative new series called Kingsway Collaborations . The world-renowned boutique sample library created and curated by Toronto-bred, L.A-based Grammy Award-nominated producer Frank Dukes – who was featured on the cover of Billboard and whose production and original samples have been used by many of the hip hop and pop world’s most successful talents including Drake, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift, Kanye West, Lorde, Camila Cabello, Travis Scott, Future, Post Malone, and The Weeknd among others – continues on its mission to legitimize sampling in contemporary music production while connecting forward-thinking musicians to create good affordable ready-to-go samples and music.

The first installment teams up Grammy-nominated producer David Bendeth, with two of the Library’s frequent contributors, CVRE and Brandon Leger. Bendeth, a renowned producer, mixer, songwriter, and plug-in creator, is one of those low-key, multi-platinum selling music icons, who since the release of his 1979 debut album Adrenalin – whose track “Feel The Real” quickly shot to #1 on the UK Dance Charts – has had an illustrious career in the music industry, and even produced the ELV1S: 30 No. 1 Hits greatest hits collection that’s sold 15 million-plus units. As some of his early recordings were starting to get sampled by some of the hottest contemporary rap, R&B, and electronic music acts of today including Westside Gunn, Madlib, Kaytranada, Goldlink, Craig David, The Alchemist, and Bennie The Butcher, he was looking for a new creative outlet and wanted to collaborate with some producers who were pushing musical and artistic envelopes, and he found that in this unlikely duo.

San Francisco rapper B3hree was on a tear all 2020 releasing music and visuals and continues his hot streak with his new EP “Truth Hurts,” available now on Apple Music, iTunes, Spotify, and more. Produced entirely by Portland/Oakland artist TOPE, B3hree gives us smooth flows, vicious wordplay, and plenty of free game over the soulful and mobby production. Entering the rap game with his freshmen release, Death Of A Salesman – B3hree has kept his foot on the gas with the recently released Cradle 2 The Grave album with Napalm, as well as appearing all over The Pare Tape by DJ Sonz and a string of dope singles released recently.

On “Truth Hurts” B3hree shows us his lyrical capabilities and song-writing skills continue to grow with every release. Opening up the EP with “Truth Hurts Radio,” TOPE and B3hree have a little fun in the studio while keeping the bars to a high standard. On “Run It Up” B3hree shows us how to make a few dollars and keep it in the circle while maneuvering his flow over the nasty bassline. Be sure to check out the Official Music Video for “Run It Up” featuring cameos from Nump, Alien Mac Kitty, DJ Sonz, and much more. Also, check out the all-star remix for “Run It Up” featuring verses from NW Hip Hop legend Cool Nutz and the man behind the beats, TOPE. Songs like “Ceiling Fan” and “All Day” are also standouts, showing B3hree’s craftiness on the mic, sneaking in punchlines and bars at every corner.
