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.

This week is still rolling with fly tunes. So many to get to, so little time. Fortunately, tonight I’m able to mention an artist I have been wanting to introduce All Nighters to. From Washington Heights, NY, The Musalini has been expanding his travels through music. He has that classic hustle that all our topics share. Creative ways of pushing his merch, and constantly throwing pop-ups!
His popularity with the streamers has been existent, leading to biggups from large names in the business. For one to take notice of the likes of Roc Marciano, his content is usually hard body. This approach happens to be more subtle, yet just as dope. Garlic Wings talks to the ladies, something our site could use, for a change. Jo$e Cienfuego$ got a smooth sax over the one-drop drum pattern. Makes you wanna scoop lil mama right up. Then, Risktaker P knows what to sing and how to sing it. That hooked gets tattooed on the brain.
Mus ain’t to be taken light for the softer tone single. He still gives it up from a goon’s perspective. More of the hard joints could be found on the latest album, MSG. A project that sounds promising. For now, click away on this link and pull shorty close.
Than you to everybody checking for the write-ups. Artists, fans, bloggers and all in between. The kind words mean a lot to me. I only want the best my people, God bless!
