“In celebration of Heyday Footwear’s launch of its Summer 2011 line, also including women’s sizes for the first time, Heyday Footwear is releasing a musical companion to the new line entitled, naturally, “The Heyday Mixtape”. At the direction of Heyday CEO Darin Hager, the project will be spearheaded by Heyday Brand Ambassadors Born I Music (aka Born Infinite, a Washington DC-based hip hop/electronica artist) and Jules Renae (Model and Director of PR & Marketing for Heyday Footwear and Head of Promotions for New England Hip Hop.com).
The primary goal of The Heyday Mixtape is to create a soundtrack that captures Heyday’s “street-meets-sleek” philosophy. Not only does Born I Music represent this philosophy, but all artists who wear and or represent Heyday (i.e. Twista, Elzhi, IAMEDIC, Jay Sean, Coolbeans, Flo Rida and Tony Yayo to name a few), are reflections of the company’s cross-genre ethic. The aim of The Heyday Mixtape is to highlight artists who, by their affiliation with Heyday, have proven that they are forward thinking and ahead of the curve both in their music and in their sense of style.
The mixtape will be a free download and for promotional use only, consisting of original material to be released via www.heydayfootwear.com, www.newenglandhiphop.com, www.bornimusic.com.
The Heyday Mixtape Drops 5/31 FEATURING: Born I, Mobb Deep, Coolbeans, Soul Khan, Shawnna, Twista, Ayah, HimmHott, KO The Legend, Mid-Summer Classic, Millyz, Youngstarr, EasyMoney, David Correy, Anjuli Stars, Asia Bryant, Waze, Suga SP, MacGuyver, Sketch, Young Riot, YV & Hollywood, Lights Over Paris, Game, IAMMEDIC & Edo G”

“To say the things he truly feels, and not the words of one who kneels.”
The closing words to Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” perfectly sum up Born I Music’s latest release “RE:BORN (Chairman of the Board)“.
This is truly a project for all seasons. “RE:BORN” finds Born I completely in his element as he weaves through an incredible collection of hip hop, dubstep and soul classics with impeccable timing, wordplay and delivery.
“RE:BORN” gives us Born in a new phase of personal, lyrical and artistic development. Add that to Kanye’s “Runaway”, Joker’s “Tron”, Jay Electronica’s “Ghost of Christopher Wallace” or Erykah Badu’s “Window Seat”, lace samples of Frank Sinatra & Rat Pack folklore throughout and you’ve got an experience designed to last a lifetime. This isn’t your regular mixtape. This is rebirth. Every track you’ll hear, including the artist himself has been transformed, upgraded, perfected. In a word, Re:Born.
