Double Feature – The Deity, V

 

What It Sound Like?

One of the luxuries of underground content is hidden  gems. I feel like this artist says some of  the slickest  lines, and deserves to be on your radar. The Deity, V is   product of a talent  rich, inner city. Newark, NJ   has given us talent and ambition from sports, music,  to politics. We're running with the music for this post. 

Deity is full of character, to say the least. Initially, some  of his art work could be a little spooky. Once you listen  to what he's saying and how, you're gonna be  impressed. He is an emcee that puts as many of his experiences in rhyme, as possible. With all the personality he has, it makes it more likely. Too many people claim swag, personality stands out. I don't know if he knows it, but he has star power.  

Shouts to Ahj, who worked on the production.  Laid back Boom Bap, Lo-fi approach. Deity also put his hand in the mix.  A line that  sticks out to me, "I shine  brighter than what  moths seek"  V brings  you spiritual  flows with slickness. The Lord brought me  through warfare some time back. When I hear the artist, he addresses similar issues. Instead of trying to be gangsta, he's just honest. Much more credible, plenty people could relate. By hearing a talented rapper mention it, they might become more comfortable talking about it.

This is a thinkers tune. Do roll something up while you vibe to this heat. Drink if you have a smooth one. Get your version from Bandcamp, show your support. The more from you, the more beats to buy and studio time. Special thanks to our fans, keep passing through. More on the way for you. As always, I want to see you blessed by the Lord!

The shadowy raps continue with this custom edition. Earlier, was a single. Now we get into an EP released by The Deity, V.  He storms in exercising lyrics with cadences involving sacred names. Walking down a narrow path in Kumite produced by Brabus Reed.

The next tune comes through like a winter chill with harmonic loop from NC. Some dope wordplay, as well as Near Rhyme display. An attribute pointed out by fellow blogger Rap Seminar. "Legalize the smoke that way anybody can get it I know" Another sneaky line, it's the punches fighter don't see that get them.

V grabs a track from Heretic for some abstract poetry. Defining himself celestial, betrayed by and undervalued. Knowing his worth, the young lady is expected carry herself upon high. I respect where his mind is at. Adeadly double dose of Venom is a cipher based joint. Taz Grooze and DEMON973 join the freestyle over the laid back beat by NightChild. 

One more soulful track from Heretic carries us out. Hear the record spin through the sample. V gives us a melodic flow. Confidence is proven through the voice inflection. He uses the range of his vocals to his best benefit. Bars are original as his style.

The Deity rhymes in the spiritual realm. The road less traveled in this game over saturated with cartel careers. Mamba is  audio therapy. Something different and authentic. One more pick up from Bandcamp. Thank you to our readers and artists for your confidence. May Yashua bless you eternally!  

InTheRainFlips Ep – A1

What It Sound Like? 

Tonight is about production. The lady who produced me, celebrates her birthday today. Without her, I wouldn't be here. I don't think it  is coincidence that tonight's selection has no emcee, solely a producer. Residing in Arizona by way of South Africa. Yes, that makes him African-American, literally speaking. Our homie, A1 stepped outside the box with this one.

He succeeded where I failed miserably when I tried my hand at beats. He took alternate conclusions beyond expectation. The ability to get so many variations out of a single sound is priceless. So, he sampled In The Rain, by The Dramatics and got four different versions. I can't say that I've seen this done on a public scale. The beauty of the underground, artists are recognized for creativity.

The song itself is a very popular classic. My family used  to play it a lot when I was a kid. It has even been used by other producers. A1 still  manages  to  manipulate  the sounds further. Notice  multiple tempo,  timing plus time  lengths,  as well  as loops,  and break  points. Hip Hop heads  will  be  impressed by  the efforts  without  drums. Hard  to choose  a favorite, I would  most likely rhyme on the second track, though. 

This four pack of Flips is relaxing. The kind of week some of have been having, we need the relief. He even joins the crew for the picture in his variant cover art. Slide  to Bandcamp and get your copy. Follow and share the work of this Black Hand Music Group artist. Pardon me fam, this post was  for last  night. There was a site  issue. Thankfully,  everything is back up  and  running. Also  grateful  for  your  loyalty.  Jah bless all of  you!

Being.In.Gods. Vision – Big V

 

What It Sound Like?

Got some new work for you! Ever been to Kinston, North  Carolina? Well, it's  time to go take another trip.  That also means new artist, listen to Big  V.  He's a  rugged, grassroots head  of the  culture.  Here is an emcee that gets it.  Content,  personality, bars, plus different things being done  on  each song. Compliments to that has to be Shawn Finesse. Handcrafted a film-style score with emotional samples.  

The first tune, Happy is self explanatory. An  accomplishment chant  from an  artist  overcoming adversity. Someone comfortable in his own  skin. I like  the  flow  of Nathan, a joint  about  independence. Often people will complain or critique  what you're doing. They never are the ones outside with  you. They have no intention of helping you.  That is a song for those people.

Making this even more of a complete body of work,  Color Blind is a true love song. Or should I say, real love? V  verbally introduces you to his  number one lady. All is calm before the Rain. A tune of joyous expressions concluded by sensitive childhood connection. Similar to MJ not making varsity, Big mentions a previous upset with his craft in Achievements.

The EP goes out 90's style, vicious bars rail the funky track. A one verse had tapper, F Ya Playlist. The album title also stands as the artist's complete name. I dig the spiritual vibe carried throughout this piece. Readers should get their hands on it at your favorite platform.  Thank you for constantly supporting. Jah bless!
