ICU - New Potent TAI PLUS Instrumental & Video

The HADES lab is shaking, the neighbors are pissed, and there's a new song, video, and instrumentals just for you!

Don't miss the Smashing Pumpkins driven instrumental 'Kiss & Kill Me' above!

Thursday, August 16, 2012


First there was the Jerzey Devilz LP DEVIL MUSIC. Then we heard PYTH AND PO CHRONICLES VOLUME ONE in 2010. Since then, both Python and Potent Tai have been steady on the scene, Potent Tai now in the South, and Pyth still repping on the East Coast. We've been waiting patiently to hear them collaborate again. As far as PYTH AND PO CHRONICLES VOLUME TWO go, they say it is still in the works, and will be out soon, but early this morning, Potent Tai dropped a new track from his upcoming mixtape OMNI-POTENT to his soundcloud that features Python called Black or White featuring Michael Jackson.
Black or White is a rare song that let's you break your neck to the beat, and also take away powerful messages. Produced by HADES (Hungry Artists Don't Ever Stop) for Legit Rhythms, I can't help but want more. OMNI-POTENT is still in the works, but with hungry artists like these, you never know how soon they'll have it ready.

If you missed DEVIL MUSIC you can still cop that on Amazon HERE.
Also, check out the first FREE Legit Rhythms Mixtape Here
Potent Tai has a segment on ATX THE BEAT radio station called Word On The Streets. Go to the website to tune in and listen live!

The LP project 'THE UNSCENE,' the first solo LP by HADES (Hungry Artists Don't Ever Stop), has been postponed. HADES is working on a cyberpunk novel, as well as helping to produce a new mixtape by POTENT TAI currently titled OMNI-POTENT.
In the wake of The Unscene's cancellation, HADES has released a few gems from the project. Enjoy and comment!

#POTENCY featuring LMNO, Shadowstar Boxer, Team OBEZ & MORE

Here's Potent Tai's LP POTENCY! It's out! FREE!

Potent Tai grew up in New Jersey and was influenced by 90's hip hop such as Biggie Smalls, Tupac & KRS-ONE. He began writing poetry and collecting mixtapes every weekend in downtown Newark until he developed his flow and style. 
In 2005 Potent Tai joined alliances with a New Brunswick group called the Jerzey Devilz. They were fast on the scene and eager to perform rocking many stages. He released two mixtapes one with Jerzey Devilz and another with bandmate Pyth called Pyth & Po Chronicles Vol. 1
Eventually Potent Tai moved to Austin, TX for a fresh start where he collaborated with various acts until meeting HADES (Hungry Artists Don't Ever Stop) a local Austin producer. After lending his vocals for HADES' mixtape Toll Pass Vol 1. and again on the HADES produced Menace O.B.E.Z. LP Rotten Flesh, the two quickly formed a friendship and started recording together frequently. 
It wasn't long before many tracks were recorded and Potent Tai & HADES began performing at hip hop shows all over Austin. Finally, in anticipation of Potency, they released the first single POPCORN featuring Menace O.B.E.Z. It can be found on the Legit Rhythms Vol. 1 mixtape on
