Steady – VRN Hayes

What It Sound Like?

I'm a considerate person, I put others before me a lot.  Especially  when  selecting  artists  to  write  about.  This time, the  material speaks my  language. From  album name,  song names,  plus  slick  criteria to support  it. VRN Hayes is  another  throwback to  Cali emcees  I  grew up listening to. 

South Central is a section the seasoning sticks to in the  cultural melting  pot  through  Los Angeles.  Quick  recovery from a major surgery, he  springs  back  with  a locked  and loaded EP.  You know 1 Shot has to dig a  joint with substance like Aim produced by the unique Arcitek. The intro to pain yet to come. 

"If you niggas count me out hen you shouldn't count"   This chorus line sticks out as much as  bars from  a verse. He states the hindrances  in life, and  attacks  them. Interesting name of the key pusher here, Layer  Beats, that's exactly what  he brought out of the artist, layers. Mva snook a banger to the stu, Hayes made the self-titled hit. This one got high motivating energy. Hard and could go radio!

  Things get more transparent with L is for Lessons,  sole  feature from  Duke Rukus. An artist and person from the same cloth of Hayes. Emcees give the listeners something to hold on  to.  The  music  you  could feel.  Ironically, the classic ambience is set by Young Sound. Though, it  as  an EP,  a story is told as if there were 16 tracks. 

I'm  very  impressed  and  was  able  to  peep  so  many  dynamics.  I  hope an  album  is on  the way.  For now, keep Steady. Pick it up at your favorite online store. I'm about to roll up a SPLIFF:30 and  go  back to CMO. "I  done robbed a nigga with no bullets." Shout  to  everybody, for real. The reception  is  all love, Jah bless!

Sharp Steel – 38 Spesh x El Camino x Che’ Noir

What It Sound Like? 

Now you know  everybody  I  write  about  is  special,  which  is  why  they land here.  Tonight though... We got a Speshal!

 This set consists of individuals that made it from some of the worst  conditions. In the present, they are positioned so well towards the  opposite end of the spectrum. 38 Spesh is living out the structure of the culture, plus the  goals  of  RAN  family.  Always  active,  this  time  including El Camino of  Griselda, and  the  graduated  featured  artist,  Che' Noir in the mix. 

Producing an entire EP and rapping on it takes a lot out f someone. Of course you gotta present the fruits of labor to the people. So, 38 aired the visuals to street exclusive, Sharp Steel. Following a hook of aspiration served by El Camino, the whole sixteen is unloaded by Che' Noir. To ensure the hit, Spesh fires over the track at point blank range.

I'm happy for the Buffalo queen, she got down with an artist that allows her to do Che'. At the same time bringing out the best in her. I had a chance to listen to 5 Shots, the right rappetizer for the upcoming album, 38 Strategies Of Raw.  We're looking  forward  to it,  let's watch  this  new vid for now. Everyone's response has been meaningful, thank you for supporting. May Yeshua continue to bless you. 

True Stories – Jamal Gasol

What It Sound Like?

Lady at the register said, "You're in a good mood." As if, I usually show up grumpy. She ain't mean harm, though. I can't deny, the music is  contributing to the relief. Of course, we have more. Our topic needs no intro, Jamal Gasol put Niagara on his back. 

Every right to call it Home, tragic news welcomes you into the Dirty  Waters, scored by Won87. Next on the key pushing list is another  familiar one, Vinyl Villain. A back to back loop event, minimal effects, all music. In the album titled  joint, Jamal applies the bars while introducing us to Jay Nice. The Delaware emcee gets busy!

Following, is a flashback scene to 2016. You know how your favorite series shows new episodes with parts explaining the past? Despite the time frame, Jamal and producer, Marc Dub preserve the freshness. Our homie Wavy Da Ghawd lays the audio ground on Smoke. Some street poetics with a feature from Estee Nack, a requested emcee in the underground!

Gasol keeps the Hip Hop homage with the lines busting out the margins through Snappin on Sadhugold. A funky track laced by Sadhugold. Our audience gets some narration in front row of All Is Fair, dramatic sounds provided by Illah Dutch. Personality pours out from the artist and beat from Not What It Seems. Could tell it  was fun recording over this EyeDee creation.

Hate to isolate, though Reflection happens to be my favorite on the album. It's so transparent, easy to relate, and tangible harmony by OlMan80zz. You remember the post from Give Up The Goods 2K18...  Prodigy forever remembered with a tribute featuring Rome Streetz  with theCamoflauge Monk reproduced classic Mobb Deep hit. 

This chapter is closed with another friend of ours, Onaje Jordan the producing  pride of the Chi. Another tune with a lot of flavor for the people.  Overall, Jamal shows several sides in this project.  Something differing sounds, never repetitive. Grab your copy anywhere, Bandcamp, major  plats, or Mr 31, himself. Thank everyone for the love and support, Jah  bless!

 

Levels – Bless The General x Emaculate Vernaclucar

What It Sound Like?

That's right, doubling back on em!  

This underground is is deeper than meets the eye. Each corner turned  there's uncharted flows and approach to the rhyme. We'll hear  from some artists that are more  technically sound than a Euro-step! Bless The General could be heard all ends of Connecticut with his music and multi-hustle. 

EMACulate Vernacular is the name that ultimately sums up the  character.  Words are  extremely calculated from annunciation to syllable. The Georgia native has a grass roots style. Wit and double entendre loaded bars, a sure student of the game. They kept it as live over the orchestra, structured original beat.

Bless has a style to go in almost any lane, EMAC has that raw desire to  spit bars. Shows that the depth of  this keeps expanding. By the streams they've been getting, things are on another Level for them.  This smoker is available on all digital platforms. Check the YouTube link provided. Share with your people. Thanks for passing  through, blessings from the Most High!

The Corner Store – Supreme Allah X Solomon Childs

What It Sound Like?

Warning: This post contains raw Hip Hop, known to cause nausea and fear to weak emcees.

I stuck my hand into the Wu Tang Killa Beehive for this one, came out with Yellow Jackets.  I’m proud to type about the combined lyrics from Supreme Allah and Solomon Childs. We got the Wingz Up all around here, getting Theodore Unit involved. These are some of the hardest workers bridging the underground and mainstream Hip Hop. That energy is expressed right away when you hear choir sample just before the drums drop.

Feel the pain in the jagged voice of Childs setting off the slaughter. Darts spray fully-auto like a Gatling gun. Right around the corner, he’s followed up by a magnetic verse from Supreme! The bar he set won’t be reached by imposters. These two artists handled the track like rap titans. Nomolos The Beat Baptist blessed it with high favor, our kinda producer at RAN.

The Corner Store is a banger with replay value, plus a title we could relate to. It is a dope song, as well as a place I attended often. Some of the readers, already get huge support from Supreme, I’m asking you to return the favor for him. Get to your favorite digital music store and buy and/or stream this tune. Be sure to listen to Yellow Jacket Friend Of The Killa Beez.

I can’t get tired of your support and feedback for RAN. Thanks for passing through, explore the site, see what sections you like. Peace and God bless the All Nighters!
