Ravyn Lenae jumped onto our radar with three song releases, "Blossom Dearie", "Greetings", and "Mr. Sun". Just a few release that were aimed to get us ready for a new project she was working on. Today Ravyn delivers the EP titled "Moon Shoes", a eight track listening session of a soulful voice. In relation to the name of this project, you might want to find some where to sit because its possible you will be floating to sound she's providing.
Over these eight songs, Ravyn Lenae holds modulated tones, but penetrates the backdrop of each track never being overshadowed by the production. While this is the beginning of her career and I'm pretty sure there's room for growth and singing styles to discover, her voice is amazing and this was EP is far from inadequate. Appleby joins her as the lone feature with production from Monte Booker, Oz, and Keyzus. Listen below.
Fresco got a love for that 'drank', and expresses it in this new video for the single "Ms Codeine. You can download this and more from the "Miles Apart" mixtape by M. Stacks. Watch the video below.
ProbCause will now be joined by Saba on tour and coincidentally these two artist have joined force for a new song. ProbCause follows up from his previous single "Back To The Future" with the Drew Mantia produced "M.I.A.". This release is not for the lazy as its sure to get the body moving.
Bo Deal takes it to a hood near you in this new visual for "Hood Nigga". Deal demonstrates his respect and the respect he receives when he hit the streets of Chicago. While he's done releasing solo projects we'll still hear loose tracks and there was talk of a collaborative project with Sly Polaroid so stay tuned for more on that. Watch the video below.
