I got a grassroots submission a while back, glad I’m finally catching up to it. For many years NY has held the torch for traditional Hip Hop. Once the ATL, 808’s, and drills started to influence the Town, other areas started to carry the traditional sound. This one hails from Baltimore, Maryland.
Ullnevano is new to our site, no stranger to the rhyme. He locked in with producer, JR Swiftz for this creative basketball theme. This key pusher has a Brooklyn and Virginia upbringing. He also has a track record with some of your favorites. I’m really feeling the titles relation to each song on this project.
The first joint, My Gawwd is more of an expression, that tune that grabs the attention. He also has a video for it you should watch. Through our side of Rap, collectibles are a thing of importance to us. When you got a pack of Fleer Cards, you knew it was worth the effort. Technical is interesting, because there’s so much more than just rapping here. Plus, the artist is free, taking his shots without standard pressure.
What better adaptation of a technical foul than Rasheed Wallace…? A more hardcore tune with the album’s only features. You will hear verses from Apt Joans, London Boii, and Illien Roswell. Rap Like is another that’s not referencing B-ball in the name. Yet, the rhymes are just as creative. Sunset Park gives this EP a dramatic ending. The movie that didn’t have your Disney ending. Actually, nothing was fairy tale about it. It’s a window into the artist.
Something really cool about the project, I get to geek out on my childhood sport. You’ll recognize clever cadences to the game. The production is also impressive. It mirrors the emcee. We also get some heart felt cuts from DJ Jon Doe Show support at Bandcamp and purchase your copy. Thanks for staying up with me. May the Almighty keep you strong!
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.
Keeping you up with uncharted talent week after week is therapeutic is also for me. Got some joints you haven't heard yet, as well something your're familiar with this weekend. A new package came in from Iron Lungz, an emcee out of San Diego. He slides on the melodic background by Bi$hop. My first time hearing either of ther two, already looking forward to more.
The Black Hand Music Group is a strong unit, realizing they're much deeper than meets the eye. A team of dedicated emcees, plus producers. You can't lose like that! This is a street serenade, bars, strings, and keys. "So ahead of my time a Delorean would slow me down." Type of rhymes you haters is up against. Yea, he's a slickster, with a chorus that has also has substance. Be sure to follow Lungz.
This smoker was sent to me by BHMG management, available at Bancamp. It's one of the singles off Exxon Valdez. An album released last month. I recommend it, because it fits right in our category, dope! The personality and message reminds me of me and my homies' mentality. It's very easy to relate. Shouts to the rest of the team, best of continued success. Thanks to the All Nighters, as always. You are the best fans. I just want blessings to shower you!
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!
Get the red carpet ready! One of our break through artists has a new reel to share with us. Continuing her campaign of her debut single, Che' Noir drops new visuals for it. This road to success has given us almost a fish bowl view of the artist's life.
We as fans feel a sense of connection with her family, since her father and mother are mentioned from time to time. Her parental structure was a sensitive one. Lyrics are full of nutrients, relative situations, avoiding fairy tales. Avoiding being perfect, doesn't mind to show flaws. The type of track layed by DJ T - Rell has rags to riches infused in it.
Within maybe a year and a half, Che' has made a music career. Attracting the ear of Benny The Butcher, as well as the business interest of 38 Spesh. Currently, see her as the cleanest thing in the abandoned building. Maybe it's her treacherous flow that demolished it. Just her and Mr Fam First in front the camera while G Rec TV Filmz. The 4K with minor filters was a great contrast to the scenery debris. Also see flashes of Ali putting gloves on his opponents.
Clear to hear why Che' gets her hand raised as the victor in the match against life. This young woman refuses to be a statistic in her city of Buffalo. Make sure you keep up, watch the video via YouTube. Stream on all majors. Get the upcoming project, Thrill Of The Hunt 2. Thank you to our loyal fans for all that you do. Jah bless!
