Midnight Pitfights – King Coldpack X MindFrame

 

What It Sound Like?

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!

If Cocaine Could Talk 4 – RJ Payne

What It Sound Like?

Gotta talk in the NORE loud whisper voice tonight. Tonight's hustler made another flip. Dealing with something  that could get you serious studio time. RJ Payne drops off his follow up to ICCT 3. After excelling in creativity, believe it or not he gets more creative.

 Songs named after favorites from New Jack City. The grind attracts  other hustlers. Special mentions by rising Rochester star, 38 Spesh.  Returning Desert Storm sergeant, Paul Cain. Safe to say he knows a thing or two  about the talk. Of course, had too get a plug from legendary DJ Doo Wop. The soft-tone, melodic background set by Neff Beats. 

Cool vibe carried into the first tune which bring back the Empress by  the name of Lioness Jade. She helps the situation settle after the storm by RJ with her blended spoken word and flow. Other tracks that have a type-slow pace is Don Armeteo produced by Brian Blaze. Plus, Dutta Man by Stan Da Man. Still, these beats are hard as Loc Dog in Menace. Energy increases with Frankie Needles, keys handled by Myth. One of my favorite lines from Payne is "Buck 50 if you  turn  the other cheek." 

Notice the Philadelphia jazz culture in G Money On The Court. RJ two steps without stepping on the work from Fonkstarr. Things get slicker on Keisha's Gunn. The bars are consistent and loaded. Salute to Neff Beats for the keys. Fat Smitty reminds  me of the direction Hip Hop was going in 2005-2010. That triumphant sound, production by Firzt Donz.

CMB slows things down, for a little. I like the momentum of this project. Reese Tanaka leads with electric instrumental elements. A major jewel we can't ignore, DITC icon OC lands a verse with our boy. How's that for Big L comparisons? They destroyed the beautiful creation by Chukk James. The Harlem emcee would be honored by Appleton & Peretti. We get one more from Fonkstarr to bring it to an end. Something you gotta drive a 1960's Continental to.

 RJ started with a quarter, now the audio drug dealer reaches the destiny of a Ki. He represents the essentials well in this form of music. His rap co-sign list is steady growing with some of the most impacting lyricists. Well organized album with new and familiar faces. Exclusive purchases directly through IAMRJPAYNE.com  I will provide the YouTube link for our readers. Your attendance is appreciated, blessings from Yahweh! 


Got visuals from the plug, himself! This is heat, I won't hold you. Catch your new favorite video with RJ Payne and OC... Oh yea you see that DITC stu!

Trauma Freestyle – Killa Khy x King Merlino

What It Sound Like?

About that time again, the streams need more fuel. We got it for you,  right here! New entry from North Philly featuring one of our RAN residents.  Picture a double layered bridge joining different eras, that's what this song reps. Young bull Killa Khy shows his ear  for music selecting a Mobb Deep classic instrumental, Get Away.

The Trauma increases adding the vet, King Merlino. Instead of bragging about the stripes from the streets, it's a seek for  better living. Easy to relate and agree with. Most rappers in the  generation of Khy would do the opposite. Punchy flow with  consciousness of self puts the lob where Merlino needs it.

"They rather own a Draco than be Draco," King refers to heads that are afraid to fight with fists. There are so many one liners, I'd prefer you get it from them. After hearing this, I could tell Spitta Season is still in session. The future of UFO 215 is solidified. We will keep looking for Killa Khy. Though, he sticks out, even in camou.

 A must stream at SoundCloud! Repost recommended! Due to the shut down, my prior arrangements gotta be rearranged. So let's keep it Philly tonight... Big Thanks to all supporters, I received my first Hip Hop analysis from Rap Seminar. I get to join the other RAN artists that have had one. Praises to Yahweh!
