|Usually when I am faced with the decision of which one I want first...I go with the ghood....so Ima give that to ya first:
The Yung Huslas debut mixtape CD is in the streets NOW. I can't wait to get my copy!!! Hosted by Skarr Akbar, this CD promises to be really ghood. I love these little guys (I think the oldest one may be 17)...especially Blue (aka S.L. Danga aka Dangerboy - The Baby Faced Monster. He used to keep in touch with....mmmmmmmh?? what happened...LOL!). I am sooo happy to see that someone finally put some money behind there kids. Check for the song, "Exactly"...Its kinda old, but since this is their first mixtape I hope they included. It's just the kind of catchy song that the radio would prolly love. Im prolly a little biased about these guys because I see how hard they grind. These kids be erewhere. They get around better than most adults! HA! The first time I met them...THEY set up a meeting with me at Mondawnmin Mall to discuss having their bio written...LOL! Under normal circumstances I would not have dealt with them (I don't do kids or artists for that matter...LOL!)....but I thought it was the cutest when I found out how old they were (Blue was like 14 or 15 @ the time) ........& was really curious about them. Funny part, when I arrived...they were serious as hell!! Shout out to "Krazy"....Madame of Murdaland runner up and official YH front woman!!! Don't let their age fool or mislead you...THESE shorties be spittin that real ish!
Check out some of their music on the R.A.R.E. Entertainment MYSPACE page.

Tyree Colion Found Guilty
Current mood: disappointed
For those of you who were not away, Tyree Colion was arrested on 4/19, the day before his CD release arty. He was arrested as a result of a warrant for violation of parole and when police apprehended him, he was allegedly in possession of marijuana. Once in custody, he was denied bail.
This past Thursday, June 1, was his court date for the violation of parole charge. Given Tyree's past and probably also because of his public persona, the prosecutors and judge seemed to be determined to nail him. Despite the best efforts of R.A.R.E. Entertainment's legal team and testimony from R.A.R.E.'s
president, Tyree was found guilty on a violation of a parole; the judge insisting Tyree was not a productive member of society.
He has not been officially sentenced yet but still faces another court apperance for an old assualt charge resulting from a small scuffle two years ago at Baja Beach Club. Depending on the outcoming of the assualt trial, Tyree could be facing anywhere from four to fifteen years in jail.
I can't really speculate fully on what the outcome of his sentencing will be, but at this point, it's looking
like best case scenario for Tyree is serving four years of his fifteen year suspended sentence. I would ask that everybody keep Tyree in your thoughts and prayers and hope for the best. Anybody that knows Tyree is aware that he is a very changed man and is not the same person that was convicted back in '92 at the age of fifteen.
For those that are interested, Tyree's triple mixtape "Tyree Colion presents Hustle Hard Blvd." is available in limited quantities. With Tyree away, R.A.R.E. does not plan to fully release it, however, if you're interested in purchasing it, contact us. The 3 disc mixtape features over 60 songs and is $15. The money from the mixtape will go towards supporting Tyree's beautiful five month old baby girl. Also, for anybody that wants to write Tyree, I will make that address available shortly.
On a business note, R.A.R.E. Entertainment will not cease to exist in the absence of Tyree Colion. We till plan on gearing up for a big summer, starting off with the release of The Yung Huslas "Strickly Business Vol. 1", followed by a DVD. Keep your eyes open and your ears listening.
