Lots of exciting things are happening!
If you haven’t bought your copy of the NEW SCHOOL ROYALY 4.0: ROYAL COURT CD (2016, NSR Music Group), please head on over to Facebook or Twitter and send a message to Angel Mena. There are only a limited number of CDs left before it sells out and you don’t want to miss out! I want to thank Angel Mena for the opportunity and honor to be a part of this project. The support from fans and DJs for NSR 4 has been incredible!
The maxi-single for the 2016 RSE Remix of “Lost Cause” by Latino Rosario will be available at all major digital music stores on March 4, 2016. But… it is available to purchase RIGHT NOW, exclusively from the RSE store!
Speaking of the RSE Store, I just added a FAQ to answer any technical questions you might have.
Also be on the lookout for the new single “The Great Deceiver” by Carlos Escalante – coming soon from 729 Recordings/LionMade Entertainment. I just did a remix for the upcoming single and early response from DJs has been positive. 🙂
Until next time…
It’s my birthday. I’ll be turning 40 next week.
To celebrate, all purchases from the RSE Store between now and January 29, 2016 are 40% off!

Thank you, everyone, for all of your support. Some big things are on the way for 2016!
The RSE website is expected to be offline for an unknown period of time while all of the “NHB Network” websites are moved to a new webhost.
I will begin transferring the files for all of our sites (nhbfreestyle.com, fernandobenitez.com, rhoqsolident.com and totalkaosrecords.com) to our new server around 12 noon tomorrow (April 2, 2015).
Once this begins, I expect all of the sites to become unavailable for at least a few hours while the new DNS information is propagated across the web.
See you on the other side.
I just wanted to say “Thank You” to everyone who has downloaded the “It’s Not Right” by KennyFreestyle single.
Thank you for all of the kind words you guys have been leaving as you spread the word about the song. It is greatly appreciated. To the DJs and radio stations that have been supporting the single, thank you so much! There is more new music coming soon from RSE.
1. RADIO EDIT (3:25)
2. CLUB MIX (5:07)
3. CLUB MIX with EDITS (5:22)

I just wanted to say “Thank you” to everyone who has been supporting our music over the years. 2014 was a great year for not only RSE, but new Freestyle music releases in general. We couldn’t do what we do without the fans and DJs. It is truly an honor to be able to create new Freestyle songs that touch so many people. Thank you for inspiring me to keep on going!
We closed 2014 with yesterday’s release of “The Reason” by Joey Tee , but work has begun on new music for 2015. Have a great holiday season and a happy new year.
See you in 2015!
PEACE AND KEEP REAL FREESTYLE ALIVE—>Brad Warsaw (a/k/a Rhoq)
I check CD Baby several times per week for new music. It’s a great place to hear/buy new and interesting things and support your favorite independent artists, no matter the genre.
While browsing the Freestyle section, I noticed that “Another Love” was listed among their top sellers and I just wanted to say “Thank You” to you, the fans!
None of this would be possible without your support and I am truly grateful for the love you are showing for this release.
I just wanted to thank Pedro Saint for his awesome Saintonz Dub Dub Editz mix of “Another Love”! You can check it out (along many other great multi-edits) on the SAINTMIXEZ SoundCloud Page.
A handful of songs have been remastered for 2014 and are being prepared for re-release later this year. This inaugural batch will kick off the RSE CLASSICS REMASTERED SERIES of singles that were previously only available to purchase directly from Rhoq Solid Entertainment.
Look for “I Was Lost” by Wilson (Extended Club Mix) and “The Reason” by Joey Tee (Club Mix and Miami Mix) in late September or early October 2014. For the first time, these songs will finally be available to purchase from all major digital music stores (iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, CD Baby, etc)! More information will be made available once we are closer to the release.
Destroy and rebuild. It happens sometimes. A few months ago I was in “destroy mode”. The old RSE website was on the receiving end. Everything else related such as YouTube and SoundCloud were also deleted. I had no regrets at the time, but now it’s time to start rebuilding.
Regarding YouTube: I don’t really feel like re-uploading the live performance videos of old stuff that was produced when I really had no idea what the hell I was doing (hell, I still don’t). I understand that several fans liked them and I really appreciate it, but the material being performed was really just demo quality (most of the songs on the first official release from Rhoq Solid Entertainment: Joey Tee & Pica – The Split EP). This is not a knock on either Pica or Joey. Both of them love writing, singing and performing. Both of them love Freestyle. But when we recorded that stuff – we just kind of hit record and let whatever happened, happen. (LOL) I think we’ve all grown a lot since then and if there was a chance of getting them to record fresh vocals I’d be more than happy to revisit those tracks and bring them up to spec.
There are a few other videos that I might re-upload, someday (such as Wilson performing his great song “I Was Lost”, which is one of only a handful of songs that I’ve produced that I actually like). But YouTube is not a priority at the moment, so it may not ever happen.
To the point of this post. I realize that SoundCloud is currently the “it” place for music nowadays. So in this rebuild phase, I plan to start a new SoundCloud page for the RSE catalog.
Since I am officially inactive (retired?), I don’t anticipate there being anything new posted to SoundCloud, but there will be new releases in 2014 of previously unreleased material that may be new to you, including Latino Rosario’s debut album – which will enter post-production before the end of February 2014. I anticipate being able to announce a release date for sometime in the Spring 2014.
But first thing’s, first – new RSE SoundCloud page. Once it’s up and running, the link will appear in both this post and in this site’s navigation menu.
