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!

 

It’s A Dirty Game – Jamal Gasol x Lil Eto

What It Sound Like?

(ODB Voice) "Thought yah wasn't gon see me?"  Already know I had to touch this heater. Despite the release date, good music is timeless. I'm continuing tunes I wanted to write  about towards the year end. As I catch up, you'll be pleased to hear Jamal GasolLil  Eto, and V Don! All artists we're fans of at RAN. 

Jamal has branched out to multiple producers in  the circuit over the past couple years. Though, the sounds vary, Gasol  keeps the wheel in his lane. Providing the audio pack, Eto rides with him along the four track EP. Nearly every step of the way is scored by V Don. In a short matter of minutes he covered so much in tempo, harmonics, and melody. Full course meal for the emcees to devour.

 The self titled tune is well selected for an opening song.                                                                                                                                                   Beat and  vocals have a sense of controlled aggression. Mr 31 and Lil E exchange verses of street knowledge. A strong way to navigate the project.  Only God Knows steps out the box with Patois  narratives further decorating the Gasol painting. My first memory of this Rochester - Niagara team up is Statistic. As I stated, V Don handled nearly every step of the score. Eto displays veteran production skills, plus the  signature verbals. Jamal at the time was developing a new burst of energy, and you could here it is his verses. 

A feel good tune, that joint you gotta go back to from time to time. IADG closes with a solo from the Piff Man. The transition to music from the block bleeds through Eyes On The Prize. Listen to what the artist's adjustments have been like. Of course, you only get in glimpse by way of art. Let's be grateful they were able to make it through. 

Digital versions of the EP are still available. With that said,  biggups to the team for selling all physical copies! Thank everyone for  their  patience and genuine comments. More prayers of blessings for all!  

John Creasy 3:16 EP – John Creasy x Wavy Da Ghawd

What It Sound Like? 

This situation gets better each day, between the fans and artists that I  hear from. Been getting input and songs from some of the coolest people online. All Nighters are familiar with this Piff rush and are happy to hear back from John Creasy. Myself, included in that crowd. 

Look at the key pusher on this project, Wavy Da Ghawd. Knew he would pop back up soon. We get to hear his latest efforts blended with Stone Cold Steve Austin verbals. These are some Sativa beats leaving the listener relieved. Creasy, the olnly emcee fires off with his unapologetic style matching the persona of the Stunner, himself.

The opening tune is a grabber, got a sensitive background and slickness of the streets. He doesn't limit himself to drug infested rhymes, John expands his bar game. Dig the work ethic displayed in NO EXTRAS, as he expresses wordplay. John pours salt in competitions wounds with more lyrical touts in WRESTLEMANIA 13. Strong vocals and poise carry throughout the closing tune. And that's the Bottom Line!

Even an excellence of execution fan like me respects the Stone Cold performance in this event. It's a clever theme used right, so enjoy the six pack. This is a fun listen and you don't have to pay a cent. Please share and check his store items. Thank you for all your dedication, continue to support our artists. God bless!
