Kasa Take The Blunt 3 – Go Green Luck

What It Sound Like?

No letting off the pedal, let's get right into this new work. You remember when them Niagara Falls music gates opened up? We heard from some cool artists that were distant for so long. We're catching back up with one of those Dirty Waters natives, Go Green Luck. He's bringing his third installment of Take The Blunt with DJ Kasa. Since the second release, Luck has been running it up. Catch his IG feed, he's always in the action.

Let's switch the wave up a little from the samples to the energy tracks. GGL has more style than the average, does things others won't. Most of this project is driven by beats from scratch. Tunes that can go from the radio to the clubs right away. I need to get back in the gym and put this in my playlist. Definitely the joints to play around the ladies. He shows he could hang with the spittas, as well on tracks like Pasta and DJ Kasa Radio Freestyle with our boy Jamal Gasol. Told you this was a Dirty Waters situation. 

More guest arrivals from Tae Pac, Jay Grand, Abeer, and camp member Go Green Outlaw. Listen to the voice of the youth displayed over 808's. These are the producers you want to look out for. Pablo MCR, $urpass, Young Devante, King Mezzy, TNTXD x TayTay Made It, Kid Ocean, and Drum Dummy. Shouts to them for the demanding sounds.

Top is another instrumental - type track where he spits that pain. That and 24K got more of the vibe  I could roll with. You have to take notice in his ability to flow in variety. Luck makes sure you don't bored of any segment of this album. He has star quality and is on his way. Add TTB3 to your lists at Soundcloud. It's free and fun to listen to. 

Thank you  to every reader passing through. Some of the vets are coming around, now. Blessings from the Most High!

The Light – Lunatic x Robert Deniro

What It Sound Like?

Time for some more new music, one of my favorite parts of the day. In this community, it's all about spreading love. After all, part of the word is unity. Our readers are gonna dig this group effort for tonight's topic. Got some names that you have been seeing around the way, plus one of our established producers at RAN.

Finally get to decorate the walls with this special piece by Mr Yellow Baclava. His work can be seen from across the pond in the UK. He's been animating photographs bringing that digital extension to reality. From the Galesi Brescia album orchestrated by Robert Deniro, we get into this steaming loosey. Biggups to Lunatic for this burst of Hip Hop. Hailing from the inner city of Portsmouth, VA. Rob laced him with a lively loop, so the bars are certain to follow. 

I thought the only hooks were the lyrics that stick to your ribs with accurate voice projection. However, the artist does close us out with a chant shining Light for the lost. Lun throwing game at you on this tune. You gotta pay attention, it don't cost a penny. It's complementary with the record. 

One of eleven joints for the streamers presented by Rob and friends of ours. He knows what digs to hit us with and what fits the emcee. Get your copy and share. Thanks for all the support, it means a lot to me. I got no schooling for this. Look out for upcoming write-ups, God bless!



The Oath – Jamal Gasol x Wavy Da Ghawd

What It Sound Like?

Time to get up with one of our Featured Artists again, what a journey. We've been seeing a lot of Jamal Gasol in the past couple years. Glad I've had the opportunity to cover his musical grind at an early stage.  Plus, an early stage for my underground write-ups. 

Staying busy with guest appearances, albums of his own, pop-ups, and guess what?   Mr 31 landed a spot with fellow Piff teammate, John Creasy on Rap Is Outta Control. Happens to be one the flyest Hip Hop shows on Shade 45, hosted by DJ Eclipse and DJ Riz. They roasted the session in the midst of legend, Masta Ace!

Jamal got an inferno track from Brooklyn based producer, Wavy Da Ghawd and went to work. The keys and drums alternate never overstaying its welcome. Gasol uses each section of the beat, as he matches with flow. Content is still improving, I like how he pointed out what people call "Freestyles". He bars out for the remainder, no hook needed. Enjoy this loosey, usually means an album is on the way. 

Jamal and Wavy reconnect for a banga! This is free at SoundCloud, so get stream crazy. Thank you for your company and responses. May the Most High bless you and yours. 

Never – King Nasty x Rob Deniro x Icelord x Lil Eto

What It Sound Like? 

You came to the right place at the right time. We're still in the heart of the underground uprising. Here at RAN, you stay connected while careers take off. Tonight is a returning cast, all emcees that previously had write-ups here. Including our producer of the project, Robert Deniro a familiar talent to our fans. After the chemistry on Mean Streets, him and King Nasty drew up with a play of their own.

You should also remember Icelord from that same collaboration. Tonight he popped up with Lil Eto of New Crack Era. They continue to lay down the independent blueprint.  Once Rob cheffed up this gritty background, slow paced and raw. The emcees had no choice, but to head tap the track! Some call it G checking, I just call things how they are. That's exactly what they did with this tune. Calling out the audio gangstas, as the artists spit authentic bars. Each voice stands out with styles that can't be mirrored, while the content speaks for itself.

This is only one of the smokers off the Drugs album, including more guest appearances you love. Slide to Bandcamp, stream and buy the brand new project by Nasty and Rob! We know it's a go. Thank everybody for the love you been sending. I pray Most High blessing for the heads that keep this going.

If Cocaine Could Talk 3 – RJ Payne

What It Sound Like?

While you pile up on those holiday extras, I’m here to make sure you take in some substance. Despite the title, there will be no illegal plays or deadly addictions dealt here. It’s the hustle, aspiration, lethal content RJ Payne refers to as this high end product. Happens to be one of the most sought after products in the street, plus corporate. The artist proceeds to metaphorically describe himself as such. Plenty rappers aim to get brick prices for their verse, so it’s easy to relate to.

Making a pleasant return, RJ blesses All Nighters with a follow up album. With his third investment in the ICCT series, he made a bigger impact. This piece attracted star cameos we’re glad to hear from. From Philly-Hip Hop staple, Tracey Lee, Griselda Records own Westside Gunn, Paul Caine from Desert Storm and the lyrical Elzhi. Some powerful spoken word from Lady Lioness of Urban Poetics. One tune features Big Twins of Infamous Mobb, produced by DJ Skizz  (World Music Group). Might be the more sensitive joint on the album, I believe it’s the only one with a hook. The rest are straight bars of Payne!

Other well selected producers are FonkStarr of Crummie Beats from Virginia. Four Limbs across the pond in the UK, the Brooklyn producer Asethic with souls sounds. Another out of  BK is Stan Da Man,made hits for a long list of spittas. The closing track was brought yo you by P.A. Dre, all heavyweights. 

You have to appreciate How Payne is able to display different angles of rap. He has bars, beat selection, flows, professionalism, and something for the gutter. Easy to notice the hard effort put in to achieve this lyrical awareness. This is a fun listen with plenty of “You heard what he saids?” The free listen link is available at YouTube, still purchase your copy of this powerful series. The love is spreading more each day, I appreciate you joining me. Blessings of the Most High to all readers.
