Bad Mind – FALCONCREST

What It Sound Like?

I'm just as eager as you to get to this. An original group, to say the least, well due for placement in the RAN catalog. Gotta put my passport to use and check our family over the border in Toronto, Ontario.  Biggups to FALCONCREST for platforms of creativity. They keep each song or set entertaining for the listener, as if it were a book series.

Some know I wrote about DNTE on a tune with John Creasy. My first  time hearing him with his label mate, Falcon Outlaw was Kung Fu Lady. "I'm fresh to death lady I'm Camoflauge Monk lady"   Immediately, if  you  have  a  soul you gotta vibe to that joint! Tonight, we reach a different motel series, though. Take a peek into this single from  Red  Rose  Motel.  With slow, gritty  production  from Giallo  Point.  He uses  the  right  balance of horns, plus acoustics leaving room for the emcees.

 Growing up Jamaican cultured, I have a special appreciation for  FALCONCREST.  Their Yaad mon influence is heavy in the music.  Shows  you lyrical value as they flip the lingo, which is real Hip Hop. Bad Mind gets into the art of concealment. The intro preps you for jewels on the way. I won't give too much up, let's say you can't approach the subject one sided.

Outlaw not only  spits gems, he also uses his voice in spots as an instrument extension. That is a trait of a producer's ear, as well.  Dnte  is the classy gangsta. His gems are most decorated in fly talk. The way they work their contrasts and comparisons is compelling. Don't take it from me, though. Do as the artist says, and play it a couple times.

 Enjoy free spins at SoundCloud make sure you keep up with the High Heat duo.  Don't confuse them with the show, the name derives from a much  greater movement overseas. Thanks for choppin it up  with me.  Blessings from Yahweh!

FICO Score – Madhattan Mayor x IceRocks

What It Sound Like?

I don't think the public realizes how me and my team longed for other  cats with bars, substance, and pro appeal. That was years ago, of  course. Today, I'm surrounded by emcees that serve a similar purpose. I'm glad Madhattan Mayor decided to drop off some bars to us. Allow me to enlightened a mention of his, while he focuses on rapping. Not particularly rapping about pushing crillz.

We appreciate how he is able to keep it Hip Hop showing his diversity. One of the coolest beats I've heard in a while, credit to  IceRocks. He keeps polished in the stash. I could see a video for this tune. I want to talk about the topic of the song, a bit. Anybody could talk money, Madhattan is  talking  finances. Dealing with the two options faced by  most, get a career, or be a career criminal. 

This joint is for the culture, and the lines are stuffed with rhymes.  Definitely, a switch up of flow working in his favor. It still has the edge that keeps us away from  bubble gum raps, also elements of a hit  record.  Add it to your lists at SoundCloud, be sure to follow and share. The reactions from readers are real to me. I apprecitate it all.  Blessings to you from the Most High.

Bases Loaded – Lupus Dei x Chuck Chan

What It Sound Like?

It's really cool when underground rappers have signature sounds, as much as signed rappers. When it comes to signature sounds, I think AZ, Scarface, Jadakiss. I'm only naming a few, the flows are so  recognized  and could freeze time. Lupus Dei has the same effect, the piercing voice and high end flow captures the audience.

Key pusher Chuck Chan is also one who sticks out of the bunch. He assembled the  soulful samples for the entire home run audio reel. Grandslam has a stolen base from General Back Pain off second. Yea, his style slides into the defense causing a concussion. With this teamwork, IKING opportunities are hard to refuse, though Lup goes dolo for The Process. Hard by street standards, yet ready to spin on radio.

Clockwork is right for anyone focused on their hustle. Notice the comfort with financial talk outside the drug game, outside the country! The artist is most detailed by The Long Road. Intimate demand by the instruments, Lupus opens the vault to lyrics and luxury.

One of the slickest lines from BL, "I give it all that I got/ I'm all that you not/ King Lup I could pull a sword out a rock/"  Back Pain reappears to further the blow out in the fifth inning  bringing it to an early close. This piece has to be added to your SoundCloud or Bancamp collection. Also, follow their pages! Get ready for upcoming album, 1994 by Lupus Dei. Thanks for your feedback, may the Lord  shower you with blessings.

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!  

Snowy Nights – Sam Poetry x That Blessed Girl

What It Sound Like?

Get your coats ready, we're going into the cold. The past few months  I've been seeing this sweet- looking young lady on the scene more often. Likes and comments on posts of artists I am  now familiar with. Honestly, I thought she was just your ordinary kind, spectator.

Little did I know, this petite package is mean on the keys. Saginaw, MI  has a jewel of a producer know as That Blessed Girl. I checked more beats after I received this song she produced with emcee, Sam Poetry. She got the Boom-bap sound under control. Her Niagara running mate  takes off with bars. Sam spits vintage Golden Era lines with demeanor  to match.  Brings that good, backpack rap feel. 

These two are onto something, would look forward to them continuing to build together. Sources say he is working on his debut EP, Poetry On Mars. Look out for that, wouldn't be surprised to hear more tracks from That Blessed Girl on there. Be sure to listen her beats for consideration when recording upcoming pieces.

Get your Snowy Nights streams for no cost at SoundCloud. All the readers, rappers, bloggers, singers, producers, etc have been big supporters. I always want you to know I'm grateful. Blessings from the Most High!
