What It Sound Like?
I know there’s been some big gaps between my posts. I’d like to get to them sooner, as well as more articles. While I tackle life quarterback sneaks, new music is constant. What would we do without it?
We’ve got some market movers for you tonight. Jamal Gasol and Rasheed Chappell are names you heard a lot in recent years. They tapped in with advancing producer, Wavy Da Ghawd. Even got some scratching from DJ Eclipse. This joint has Shade45 written all over it.
As bad as rappers want the dream, the rap game ain’t what you expect. These two keep the same mentality that got them through the street’s trials. Life is still a hustle, so vividly expressed over this slapping background. This is a standout tune, nothing typical about it.
I like the team up of emcees, I’m a Wavy fan, plus the vocal samples add to the feel. I didn’t see the Stone Cold lines coming. This is a cool collaboration, they each have a different sound. Gotta appreciate the originality. Give it some spins and pick it up at your favorite digital music store.

This rap game can be used for many purposes. When executed properly, it brings a good feeling. This community is full of that feeling. I’m happy to hear from the bro again. He brought us a new project compact with audio nutrition.
An ideal arrangement of bars, hardship, plus the balance of relativity. King Merlino remains on the chess board. I wanted to quote a favorite line, then I started to lose count. I was only one track in, Twofifteeenfreestyle. The suspenseful dramatization hosts J. Ford from the 215UFO camp. A warning of the pain you’re in for with Only The Real.
Hip Hop gives us a platform to free the mind. Sometimes you just gotta let it air out. Just Venting reveals the wolves in sheep’s clothing, I’m glad he chose the references he mentioned. The double standard against black America, and he covers his personal issues. We get some blue-collar rap in Making a Man. It’s a deep tear jerker about a difficult upbringing. This will give you the transparency you’re looking for.
Been Solid reminds me of a song from his debut album. He even plugs the title in one of his verses. It’s a more laid back flow, light instruments to emphasize the lyrics. Merlino always aims to inspire in rhyme. We Gotta Do Better is encouragement with tough love. The artist executes human’s achilles heels. So many things we do to contradict self. The narrative is closed with an alerting speech from B.F. Nkrumah.
This is an assortment of moods, touching all kinds of vibes. Merlino is in the pocket with lyrics and giving the crowd something tangible. Not an easy task to complete. The Power cadence is a favorite of mine from the first tune. Through the project, you will hear a lot more. Get your copy, press play, and enjoy.
The King updated me with the new vid. I told ya’ll about that TwoFifteenFreestyle! Now, you get to see the visuals. Load this up on YouTube, and watch through the end.

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!
