Drugs (Never… Continued)

What It Sound Like? 

This new site update is taking a minute to get used to.  Know what else is new..?   Tunes, and they're potent. So potent, we had to spin back to the album of  Never. 

Re-welcome King Nasty, royalty of Phoenix, Arizona. Bringing us one of the most anticipated pieces of the year. When you let lyricists and producers communicate on the same server, you get replay material. Robert Deniro, the mastermind to the mood set for the album happens to be from Arizona, as well. Peep how he takes us through a wide range of elements to get these samples the way we like. No two tracks sound the same. All though a strong force together, still inclined to reach out to more heavyweights.

 Nasty sets the album off matching a melodic background holding his own on Off Kilter. Early to show slickness with bars, as he does it with poise. That carries into the first feature, Cracc with our homie, Madhattan Mayor. Utilizing Hip Hop for it's creation, verbally dodging the trouble in the streets while addressing it. RAN supporters will be pleased to see John Creasy appear in Deja Vu' or did he reappear? One verse worth a flip, new work with a familiar feel. 

Other than the unforgettable Never, covered recently with underground virals, Icelord and Lil Eto. The final feature is our family, Killy Shoot. They match up brushes in the self-titled banger, Drugs. This reach out is key, Killy paints pictures in rhyme so well. King lets us into hardships of his childhood household. The two accomplished the goal, easily. Have to appreciate the street poets as they come around. 

Bad Intentions, Family High, Real Niggas, Pocket Full Of Stones, and Loud Storm are all stand out solos. Loud Storm is more of a loop-based beat by Rob. This is where less means more. With few instruments, he did so much for the sound. The Phoenix spitta proves worthy isolated or on the assist. No where near an album that relies on names of a cast. This was a true team effort. Each artist stepped up to keep the bar risen.

Okay, enough of me taking up your time, listen to the album. Purchase, if you can't do that, share the link. Thanks for passing through, people. I continue to get reactions about your favorite posts. It never gets old. Blessings to you from the Most High.



Never – King Nasty x Rob Deniro x Icelord x Lil Eto

What It Sound Like? 

You came to the right place at the right time. We're still in the heart of the underground uprising. Here at RAN, you stay connected while careers take off. Tonight is a returning cast, all emcees that previously had write-ups here. Including our producer of the project, Robert Deniro a familiar talent to our fans. After the chemistry on Mean Streets, him and King Nasty drew up with a play of their own.

You should also remember Icelord from that same collaboration. Tonight he popped up with Lil Eto of New Crack Era. They continue to lay down the independent blueprint.  Once Rob cheffed up this gritty background, slow paced and raw. The emcees had no choice, but to head tap the track! Some call it G checking, I just call things how they are. That's exactly what they did with this tune. Calling out the audio gangstas, as the artists spit authentic bars. Each voice stands out with styles that can't be mirrored, while the content speaks for itself.

This is only one of the smokers off the Drugs album, including more guest appearances you love. Slide to Bandcamp, stream and buy the brand new project by Nasty and Rob! We know it's a go. Thank everybody for the love you been sending. I pray Most High blessing for the heads that keep this going.

Mean Streets – Robert Deniro & Won87

What It Sound Like?

I was riding through the southern counties of the Sunshine State, locals refer to it as Gunshine. Nonetheless, I had the right soundtrack for my commute. Road through some nice streets, as well as some Mean Streets.

These two mad scientists of producers hit the lab and came out with some explosive ingredients! Won87 and Robert Deniro trade loops over this memorable EP. The beats keep up with the soundtrack theme, as you hear excerpts from the classic gangsta scenes. The duo keep it funky with samples, keys, strings, and percussion.

The round up performing over these tracks is a group I would put one in the air with. Ice Lord sets it off painting his picture with a war paint brush. His laid back, aggressive style suits well for the following tag team. Jamal Gasol plus Lord Juco equal professional results. It only makes sense, this project leaves no room for sloppiness.

You've been hearing John Creasy make a name for himself, which is exactly why he appears with FastLife. Their recent solo pieces are being talked about as we speak. Continuing the strength in numbers route is King Nasty and ChavaStyle. They happen to in a sunny area, also. From the sound of their vivid lyrics, you could tell there was a lot of rain. Closing this project with force had to be Killy Shoot. With the poise in his rhyme, this is one of his strongest feats to date. 

Salute to Rob and Won on a job well done. Each beat is one I could see myself rapping on. Everyone reading this knows their way to Sound Cloud. Keep in mind, these artists worked hard, spending their own funds. plus taking risks to achieve this. Show your financial support with your favorite online store. I will point you in good direction with a Google Play link.  Thanks for passing through, again. God bless to all!
