Lo – General Back Pain x Chuck Chan

What It Sound Like?

This can't wait any longer, it's a Hometeam thing, and I warned ya!  While heads got gassed by the media attempts to separate our rap community with regional sub-titles I listened to all sections. My ear was groomed early by the authentic sound of Rappin 4-Tay Dru Down, Hieroglyphics, list goes on. Our topic tonight is slick as sleet, General Back Pain is throwback to the names prior.

 The signature designed flow glides along Chuck Chan aligned tracks.  The samples are from retros with variety, including pieces from old spirituals. Chuck keeps his digs in a lane remaining outside the ordinary. You'll even find him exercising his lyrical skills on Crenshaw & Imperial. Track so hard, I don't blame him. IKing partner, Lupus Dei also inks a feature on Golden Flows. Trading fire verses over a melodic overseas extract.

GBP gave you the organic Inglewood welcome with audio from the  natives speaking on real life events. His familiar personality puts you  court side of the action. Yet, the lines in songs like Monster Kody and Lo are nothing common. "I don't take my socks off when I hit it." Hip Hop is a match of proving invincibility, gotta have  room for  humor. Pain raps it up with a satellite radio approach. LOTU has bars for spittas, light drums, and a wavy chorus.

Listeners get to know GBP with Lo at SoundCloud. Chuck Chan production, you can't go wrong. Thanks for supporting the artists and RAN. God bless you!

The Balance Of Man – Killy Shoot x Free Mind

What It Sound Like?

Back from the Midwest, pardon my absence. Thanks for checking on  me, though. I had some family matters to attend. God is good, we here now.  There are a few albums from the end of last year I wanted  to get to. So, let's start getting caught up!

Killy Shoot is RAN family, all day. Basically got his own key. As an emcee, he is very cerebral. Not to confuse you with Bugzy Nino who appears on this piece. Killy attacks from multi-angles at once. I have noticed layers of growth in his style. Which gives ultimate meaning to the album's name. A story of stories told in rare art form. From playing throwback video games immediately onto another extreme. That moment when child innocence is fading.

Entirely keyed by supernatural producer, Free Mind. Los Angeles is a city of diversity, Free emits such through his tracks. Example, people often would say they want a West Coast track, with intentions of it sounding like Dr Dre. Our hero is not stereotypical at all. These are more mellow, jazz vibes. The drums become aggressive at times. The type of beats any region could rap on. 

As I noted, Supreme Cerebral tags up with Killy, once more for a deadly dose on ThePeril!  They, again prove to sound good together. Another person Big  Shoot sounds good with is Hometeam member, General Back Pain. The Jects has a single sound to it. The beat makes you stop what you're doing, then they spit bars of heat.

Only two rap features, by chance everyone Ill Kill reached out to is from Cali. I just peeped that. Killy proceeds the tour of his upbringing with Blacktop. Unfortunate tragedy resulted in a talented athlete's career and goals cut short. Shine A Light is touching, and lyrical. A close that ignites Hip Hop taste buds.

Keep sharing the project with all your socials, and lookout for more from these talents. Also get used to Hometeam. Thanks for the love and support out there. I pray Yehshua blesses you!

 

What it is – Chuck Chan

What It Sound Like?

I had this issue in mind as part of a Sleeper- series, initially. Time permits for only one artist at the moment. I feel it's a Most Slept-on of the year. Chuck Chan is held in high regard for his beat making beyond the border. Let's give him more respect for the rap capabilities.

"Everybody pump gas, but they stuck with regs" - Infamy

"View from the six same place where they bury em" - Ladies And Gentleman

Just a couple one liners I wanted to point out. Obviously not new to Chuck, unsuspected fans could still appreciate being put on. The bars are so impressive, he only saved enough space for a verse from a single other artist. Hometeam running mate, General Back Pain left a smoky trail on Jewelry. The chemistry is evident.

Being his own producer, Chan had an advantage of the direction the  mood travels. An interesting switch with the self-titled track. The background becomes more dramatic.  Talk About That Sh**  is a beat I would rhyme on. Yet, I wouldn't change what already exist. The sample chosen for Ya Lost It is rare and perfect. The vocal loop what we crave for. Charlie closes the show with a statement. Leaving it up to bars, no hook. Minimal instruments, so you focus on the rhyme.

 Good for the soul and easy on the pockets. Run up the streams at  Soundcloud, and click Follow. Thank for keeping up, everybody. Most High blessings! 

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!  

Adult Swim – Won87 x Jamal Gasol

What It Sound Like?

Peace everybody! It's hard to explain this feeling, I just don't want it to go away. Heads are making it out or through the struggle doing what they were blessed to do. As result, we get feel-good music in return. No delay, I had to bring back a great producer with one of the memorable albums this year. Won87 brought us some heat with the Robert Deniro co-op, Mean Streets. Our homie is back with one of the coolest tracks. This was so clever.

The Loop Killer sampled this theme from one of the Cartoon Network hit segments. The way he built the beat around it is complete. It's smooth, simple, and got the right drum pattern for that neck rock. Feeding your Hip Hop taste buds further, he linked up with the Upstate All-Star, Jamal Gasol for this one. You know how he give it up!

Unfortunately, underachievers don't feel the same way he does. So, Mr 31 addresses those looking for his misfortune. Here at RAN, we ride for our own. So, we just gonna make them more mad with these posts. Feel me? Gasol Proceeds to spit that Piff, capitalizing off his run-ins. We all could relate, there is always a hater lurking when someone's intention is good.

Enjoy this loosey for free at Soundcloud. Follow if you haven't already, share with your people. Thanks for everyone's support, more artists on the way. Nothing but blessing for our readers from the Most High!
