This is a league of trend setters, dedicated to their craft. There’s a climbing amount of artists that go unnoticed for doing things a famous person gets praised for. We witness some of the greatest branding strategies.
Fortunately one of those strategist, Cocareef provided us with an early listen to his latest album. Bouncing back from hospital scare, he continued to deliver albums for treasured emcees. Now, it’s all about displaying skill with superior beat selection. Each track is from Potz Lawrence with collective versatility.
A line that sticks out to me. Reef says, “I Keep one eye open like a broke Corvette.” That’s from Hurt Me, which is one of my favorites along with Reverse Ethics and Yea YeaYeah. Cocareef is accompanied by some select features. You’ll hear vocals from Ambishouz on several tunes. The other feature is from Mally Corleone, on a unique promo track. Reef gives us his signature street anthem approach. He also has the witty lines for lyrical fans, metaphoric subjects and something for the ladies. Slide to cocareef.com for your copy.
Thanks for staying up with me. Peace and prosperity!
I need the crowd put to your mics up and salute our comrade. Never easy to accept or understand when someone we know loses their physical life. I was cool with this artist, it still bothers me. Fortunately, his music lives on.
Scorcese Lorde Jones was that hustler you would see everywhere and naturally respect the grind. The slick wordsmith got a smooth one from Patchz. A lean track, no fat. Leaving space for the emcee to go to work. The artist uses an interesting angle. Despite the title, it’s more lyrical than drug filled bars. Scorcese actually opens eyes to a system carried out right under the nose.
This is a display of a technician. I like the position of first-person views injected. He even had a a little humor, referencing Urameshi from a classic Anime. You’ll enjoy the flow along with the beat you could feel. This is from the album you should get, Lobster Tales In MyTesla. Peep the wordplay. Long live the legacy. Lord blessing to everybody!
Been a while since I covered work from this artist An emcee with his region on his back. We also have a producer our readers will be happy to hear from. I got this submission around the time I had that hospital scare. So, I appreciate the patience of the parties involved.
Postman L stays sharp with his unique approach. He grabbed a harmonic piece from Body Bag Ben. An Oxnard, Califonia beat maker in high demand today. The two link up on this raw Hip Hop exhibition. The finishing production was completed by the bro, Robert Denir0. It’s dope when continents are brought together over this art.
Aggressive rap is usually a way to catch my attention. Especially when accompanied by a continuous flow. L goes the Golden Era route with the scratches for the hook. Each cut is from lyrics of his own.
One song consisting of work from a talented trio. RAN fans search for all of these guys. This is that tuff rap for your playlists. Keep it in heavy rotation. Step over to Bandcamp for your copy. Thanks for staying up with your boy. Peace and God blessings to you!
I’m hoping everybody reading this had a Friday as good as mine. It was the kind of feeling you miss, however never experienced before. Thanks to the ladies at the Coruscation House, I had the luxury to lounge at the Diplomat Resort. One of the classiest main attractions in Hollywood, Florida.
Once I got to the lobby, I was feeling the island-themed decor. Not far from the lobby was the lounge are area with private party rooms included. That’s where The GlamBoss, Siobahn Nicole, alongside Shiniqua Simone and Mel were hosting one of livest new waves around. The idea of Live @Nokku is for recording artist and entrepreneurs to have a direct outlet to the public. Building with these two talented sisters is always good vibes.
We also had smooth R&B singer Mr Cooper, 99 JAMZ representative Oshawn James, plus a Hip Hop chart burner, Jai Jin. Everybody was in the building bringing positivity. The room was so fly, we had to get an interview on the spot. Which was lead by host Steven Smith. Shortly followed by a historic freestyle-cipher!
After the drinks were through and the recording ended, it was out to the seaside pool deck. Can’t wait to show you what this pool looked like, by the way. That ambience kept the mood flowing. When you party with the ocean in the backyard, you gotta take advantage of life and live.
What’s better than sharing God’s blessing with your people, doing what you without hater in your face. The night ended on the beach enjoying the Atlantic breeze. All was in sight were lights from ships and other private beach parties. In these moments, do what Wiz Khalifa would do.
This night would not have been the same without management from Mike Sweets. Thanks for making everything go accordingly.
This is total fight music. Not saying to play this on the way to somebody that trolled you. It just has that built in adrenaline. Remember, Hip Hop was made as an alternative to violence. So, we leave it all in the booth. Let's welcome another North Philly artist, King Coldpack. He spits original cadences to the MindFrame intense board work. This track won't let you sit still.
Bars like this is what got Hip Hop through decades. Fundamental lines actually about being a dope rapper. Crazy how few go that route, today. Easy to find users, movers, and party music. So to show and prove going against the grain deserves its just due. I even dig the dialogue from the stereotypical 80's ring announcer, great timing.
Coldpack is staying busy after his album, County Blues released in the fall. Happy to be free, he's utilizing time putting out heat. Did anybody notice the cover and what blister causing SEGA game it was? I like how they through Pit Fighter in playing on the title. The emcee and producer are just as clever with their rhymes and beats.
I'm feeling good about where heads like this are driving rap. We got a mixture of flavor while the mainstream seeks identity. This is a dope single. Also check out their other tunes on Bandcamp, plus digital music stores. Thank you for passing through.May Jah bless you!
