Breeze & Joel Q - Money Right (Video)

No comments:

'Paid In Full' continues to be a timeless hood movie classic, reaching far beyond the generation that the story was centered on. True be told, it also had one of the best scenes that show a relationship where many in black neighborhoods idolize. When Money Mitch came home he was presented with the warmest of welcome by family and friends and a return to the hustle. We get sort of an interpolation of that very fresh very fresh scene as Breeze and Joel Q brings it to Chicago.

"Money Right" is the latest song/video release from these two collaborators, providing a calming atmosphere of open air. The production brings the nearly identical feeling of that very fresh 'Paid In Full" scene, through that 90s Hip Hop sound. Joel Q and Breeze represent their respective sides of the city on a song that outlays ambitions of success, rap bravado, and loyalty to those who matter. Watch the video below.

LA VanGogh - Bitter Berries

No comments:

LA VanGogh is artist who, if you visited this site regularly, you've heard before demonstrating his multi-facet talents. From production, rapping, and singing, to playing the piano, VanGogh continues to prove that he's clearly been one to watch. What we've heard from him up to this point ranges from personal experiences, perspective, and good beats. There's an obvious growth from the release of project like "The Vinyl", he's continued to fine tune his craft. He's readying a new project which is will be titled "Everything Is Subjective".

We live in a word where we judge a person by their looks. This continues to be the case whether you're Black, White, Asian, Arab, and so forth. Race is such a hot button issue that some people choose to avoid these talks as much as possible, but not LA VanGogh. "They say the blacker the berry the sweeter the juice, well I must be pretty bitter according to you" LA VanGogh raps, the line that kicks off the song. He brings his experience with race relations to the front of our minds. Facing a issue that blends, or rather that just isn't simply black and white, we get to hear some things a bi-racial man face growing up as Mexican and African-American. "Bitter Berries" is definitely a welcomed addition to the conversations about our individual human experiences. Listen below.

Supa Bwe ft. Shepard Hues, Xavier & The Thrill - Do You(Mary Jane)

No comments:

Supa Bwe, Shepard Hues, and Xavier & The Thrill come together for a new record that brings the sound to the calm moods. Shepard Hues takes lead on the production, providing a tempo that puts the brain at ease and picks up about 2/3 through the song. Supa Bwe delivers his verse with an airy crooning. He sing to Mary Jane on "Do You?", considering this song dropped on 4/20 you can figure that out. Xavier joins in after Supa, hitting listeners with auto-tune filled raps. This combination of talent present something that seems it would be perfect song to a smoke and chill session.

Expect to hear more from these three, as Supa Bwe is working toward his solo release "Finally Dead". Shepard Hues continues to to build his repertoire, getting production credits for some pretty good songs. Xavier & The Thrill have keep things consistent with, recently dropping off his own song titled "Now Its A Party", he may be working a new project, we'll have to wait and see. Listen below.

G Herbo - Something (Video)

No comments:

There's a lot to look forward to from G Herbo. He's continuing to work on his solo major debut album. Long time collaborator Lil Bibby is supposed to join him for a joint project, and another project with SouthSide is in the works. We're still waiting to hear more about any of these releases but there's plenty of music already out as well as new loose track continuing to hit the net.

There's a continued development of style and delivery in G Herbo's raps. With this new video release for a song called "Something", we get a reflective record that looks back on this first big 'bag'. Kicking things off with a monologue about his memories from 2012, G Herbo gives us a bit of what motivates him. While the track looks back on early days the video its brings us to the current success he enjoying. The track "Something" is just another song where it feels as though he in deep thought about life and his experience, someone who is truly conscience about his rise.
"You can't help what you born with, but its on you if you die broke"

The Palmer Squares - Dip (Video)

No comments:

The duo The Palmer Squares are an ever so consistent team that continues to deliver engaging visuals. Their previous video release saw a continuation of a style of shooting, a one shot nonstop take usually set for their cypher set songs where their just spitting straight through. "Bimodal" was a record that seem to stress a particular point, that they may rap under one name but they're two modes.

Recently Acumental and Terminal Knowledge followed up with a video for the Drew Mantia and DRO produced record "Dip". This was a song featured on their album "Planet of the Shapes", which was released May of 2016. "Dip" was the final track on the album which had an intention, asking the question in the chorus "where do you want to go from here". The song seems to be set as a open ended thought for themselves, something you probably assume many artist thinks to themselves, centered on what's their next move.

For their latest video Acumental handles the directing duties, along side Remsy Atassi, and editing. They bring us their journey across states performing live and enjoying life as well as some struggles. Running off their own funding The Palmer Squares have been able to amass a strong fanbase that definitely shows up and shows out for them. In "Dip", we makes the connect between their travels and "dipping" from place to place. Philadelphia, Providence, New York, Boston, Portland, and more, are just some of the stop on the road. Where are they know?
