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!

If Cocaine Could Talk 3 – RJ Payne

What It Sound Like?

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.

Montana Grammar – RJ Payne X Robert Denir0

What It Sound Like?

Tonight’s video is a shortee that makes up for time with pure quality!

I’m pleased to write about the artists involved in our feature. The emcee is heavily rooted in Hip Hop culture, with a track record deserving of a documentary. Philly representative, RJ Payne holds no punches back. My first time hearing him was over a decade ago. He destroyed rappers in front an MTV audience. Long story short, he was robbed of a championship title and potential record deal. After a particular producer of interest heard him spit, he chose to work with RJ despite the decision of Viacom. An undying desire kept him going, eventually receiving honorable mentions by Black Thought.  

Stepping into the present, Payne picks up a monster instrumental from Robert Denir0. A big look for both, Robert has a waiting list of rappers wanting tracks from him. So, it’s an ideal scenario for a veteran recording artist. This meeting of talent will propel RJ further than he already is. 

If you have eyesight, you gotta dig the visuals!  4KHD organic back block footage of Philly. Montana Grammar sets the tone for funeral music for the weak rappers out there. The horns in the background, dark Chevy truck creeping solidify the burial. 

We’re blessed to witness the first official video with a Denir0 beat. Which happens to be with a well accomplished rapper. I won’t take up more of your time, thanks for coming through. Bless all from the Most High. Show your support and enjoy the brand new video!
