This is a league of trend setters, dedicated to their craft. There’s a climbing amount of artists that go unnoticed for doing things a famous person gets praised for. We witness some of the greatest branding strategies.
Fortunately one of those strategist, Cocareef provided us with an early listen to his latest album. Bouncing back from hospital scare, he continued to deliver albums for treasured emcees. Now, it’s all about displaying skill with superior beat selection. Each track is from Potz Lawrence with collective versatility.
A line that sticks out to me. Reef says, “I Keep one eye open like a broke Corvette.” That’s from Hurt Me, which is one of my favorites along with Reverse Ethics and Yea YeaYeah. Cocareef is accompanied by some select features. You’ll hear vocals from Ambishouz on several tunes. The other feature is from Mally Corleone, on a unique promo track. Reef gives us his signature street anthem approach. He also has the witty lines for lyrical fans, metaphoric subjects and something for the ladies. Slide to cocareef.com for your copy.
Thanks for staying up with me. Peace and prosperity!
I was at my son’s basketball game today and into a convo with a parent about duos. You know we had to bring up Gary Payton and Shawn Kemp. Not just any two individuals can be a recognized duo. They also compliment one another while reflecting their strong points.
Which is what you get with this team up. Snotty spins back through with producer, MichaelAngelo. Together, they brought some hardcore for the speakers. The background is rugged with bass, Snotty spits street savvy bars.
You also get a visual adaptation. Watch the treatment shot by Hyperlinks. I feel like they were able to build a parallel vision. The tune has struggle and reward. The slick lines along with the content is a strong statement for the artist. This is the type of song I could see on the Hip Hop playlists. By now, I’m sure it made it to a few, at least.
Team effort is evident here. It sounds like the producer knows the rapper and the rapper feels comfortable with the beats. This is one of the singles from Garments Of Italy, a recent album. Pick up your copy at Bandcamp. Thanks for staying up with me. Peace from the Almighty!
The coolest, new thing is going on at YouTube. I started using the platform to post videos of me reading write-ups from RAN. I’m always looking to help expand the fan base of our artists. Be Live makes it easy to do custom recordings and load them up. If anyone wants to use the site for broadcasting, follow the link I post for it.
Most importantly, watch the playlist and let me know how you’re feeling this expansion. I want to make more visual posts like these, so keep supporting. Click the YouTube link, subscribe, and turn on the notifications to stay updated.
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!
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!
