Still in the Hood (feat. Rasheed Chappell)

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.

Foreign Bag – Jamal Gasol X The Prxspect

 

What It Sound Like?

In your fast-paced week of videos, EP's, LP's, reviews, and XYZ's you gotta listen to the shells. No, not sea shells, at least not this topic. I'm talking about those one versers that may not be on a particular project. Pieces left over after the action. Let's get into this hot one from Jamal Gasol and The Prxspect.

The horns on this joint is riveting, that drama scene. This is no ordinary track, you gotta get your passport and go to Melbounre to get it. Yes that's Australia! The slow set tempo builds up as a main entrance for Mr 31. I told people a long time ago, his music fits in the playlist with Golden Era vets. Now, you see it in real time.

Gasol cleverly adds an excerpt of the movie Bullet with dialogue from Tupac Shakur. This is a rare film, at that. He usually gets referenced for Juice. Peace to Jamal keeping it original. He made this banger available for free at SoundCloud. Listen and follow this artist on the rise. Thank you RAN family for all the support. I keep you in my prayers!

 

All Is Fair – Jamal Gasol x Illah Dutch

 

What It Sound Like?

You know I'm excited about this new pack of Piff! This  one is a treat for the eyes, as well. From the hit album,  True Stories, we get to see Jamal Gasol in action. He chose a  pivotal  song to  release as a video, wise  selection.  The unforgettable  background from Illah  Dutch. Treatment  is done by NBU TV.  I feel the web series approach taken by the team.

With that said, you will want to know what happens in  the mini story.  Jamal put his  life  between  the  margins. All lines you could feel, many  cases are direct situations. He treats  his  videographers like his  producers. Gasol  mixes  up  the flavor  getting different  results. The dark, grim streets where the villains dwell.

Peep some shots from the back blocks. Viewers catch a short glimpse of the activity in the Dirty Waters. The symphonic vibe with minor vocals laying in the track create a serenade. On target for story telling. You know you're doing right when Paka adds your video. That's right, more than one major source to play it.

Get your infused popcorn and have one rolled up on stand by, it's a movie. I can't thank the supporters enough. Keep sharing the content. Blessings from the Most High! 

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!
