Still in the Hood (feat. Rasheed Chappell)

What It Sound Like?

I know there’s been some big gaps between my posts. I’d like to get to them sooner, as well as more articles. While I tackle life quarterback sneaks, new music is constant. What would we do without it?

We’ve got some market movers for you tonight. Jamal Gasol and Rasheed Chappell are names you heard a lot in recent years. They tapped in with advancing producer, Wavy Da Ghawd. Even got some scratching from DJ Eclipse. This joint has Shade45 written all over it.

As bad as rappers want the dream, the rap game ain’t what you expect. These two keep the same mentality that got them through the street’s trials. Life is still a hustle, so vividly expressed over this slapping background. This is a standout tune, nothing typical about it.

I like the team up of emcees, I’m a Wavy fan, plus the vocal samples add to the feel. I didn’t see the Stone Cold lines coming. This is a cool collaboration, they each have a different sound. Gotta appreciate the originality. Give it some spins and pick it up at your favorite digital music store.

Heavy Crown – King Merlino

What It Sound Like?

This rap game can be used for many purposes. When executed properly, it brings a good feeling. This community is full of that feeling. I’m happy to hear from the bro again. He brought us a new project compact with audio nutrition.

An ideal arrangement of bars, hardship, plus the balance of relativity. King Merlino remains on the chess board. I wanted to quote a favorite line, then I started to lose count. I was only one track in, Twofifteeenfreestyle. The suspenseful dramatization hosts J. Ford from the 215UFO camp. A warning of the pain you’re in for with Only The Real.

Hip Hop gives us a platform to free the mind. Sometimes you just gotta let it air out. Just Venting reveals the wolves in sheep’s clothing, I’m glad he chose the references he mentioned. The double standard against black America, and he covers his personal issues. We get some blue-collar rap in Making a Man. It’s a deep tear jerker about a difficult upbringing. This will give you the transparency you’re looking for.

Been Solid reminds me of a song from his debut album. He even plugs the title in one of his verses. It’s a more laid back flow, light instruments to emphasize the lyrics. Merlino always aims to inspire in rhyme. We Gotta Do Better is encouragement with tough love. The artist executes human’s achilles heels. So many things we do to contradict self. The narrative is closed with an alerting speech from B.F. Nkrumah.

This is an assortment of moods, touching all kinds of vibes. Merlino is in the pocket with lyrics and giving the crowd something tangible. Not an easy task to complete. The Power cadence is a favorite of mine from the first tune. Through the project, you will hear a lot more. Get your copy, press play, and enjoy.

The King updated me with the new vid. I told ya’ll about that TwoFifteenFreestyle! Now, you get to see the visuals. Load this up on YouTube, and watch through the end.

Being.In.Gods. Vision – Big V

 

What It Sound Like?

Got some new work for you! Ever been to Kinston, North  Carolina? Well, it's  time to go take another trip.  That also means new artist, listen to Big  V.  He's a  rugged, grassroots head  of the  culture.  Here is an emcee that gets it.  Content,  personality, bars, plus different things being done  on  each song. Compliments to that has to be Shawn Finesse. Handcrafted a film-style score with emotional samples.  

The first tune, Happy is self explanatory. An  accomplishment chant  from an  artist  overcoming adversity. Someone comfortable in his own  skin. I like  the  flow  of Nathan, a joint  about  independence. Often people will complain or critique  what you're doing. They never are the ones outside with  you. They have no intention of helping you.  That is a song for those people.

Making this even more of a complete body of work,  Color Blind is a true love song. Or should I say, real love? V  verbally introduces you to his  number one lady. All is calm before the Rain. A tune of joyous expressions concluded by sensitive childhood connection. Similar to MJ not making varsity, Big mentions a previous upset with his craft in Achievements.

The EP goes out 90's style, vicious bars rail the funky track. A one verse had tapper, F Ya Playlist. The album title also stands as the artist's complete name. I dig the spiritual vibe carried throughout this piece. Readers should get their hands on it at your favorite platform.  Thank you for constantly supporting. Jah bless!

Fascade – MindFrame x General Back Pain

What It Sound Like?

Got a slapper for you! Most of the submissions I receive  are right up my alley. Our crowd does all the filtering, it   seems. Remember  that  android of a  producer,  MindFrame?  Well, he hasn't punched out yet. While I'm  posting this,  I'm sure he  has more   lined up. The left  region IKINGman taps in with him for the slaughter. General Back Pain perfect candidate for this psychotic sound by the horns.

Everything he says is sick, this time he does it over an ill break. I admire the simple, strong chorus. No difficult syllables, nothing confusing. His point easily gets across with power statements. GBP reminds you of your boy from around the way, though verses are accented with upper class.

Continually, the underground makes bi-coastal moves without forced politics. It's organic how these smokers come together. Fascade is a tune to throw in the list of spins. No problems accessing it, available via all platforms. Do follow these hard working artists, share this, instead of random folly.

Thanks for the love from all supporters. There's nothing like the core riding with you! Got more on the way. Blessings from Yahweh!  

My Life In Black & White – Mr Cooper x Drum N’ Skillz

What It Sound Like?

You know t's about that time. Not for the homies, not for the stu. Time  to lay wifey down, accordingly. I think a message went  out to the  universe I was going typing about something smoother tonight. The ladies been more friendly to me. All jokes aside, this Trap N B wave has my spirit up. So, let's hear from the man that helped coin the sound, Mr Cooper.

 This EP is mini is compact with love. For the music, the subject of each tune, including  the reciprocal energy it sends out. Co-creator of the TNB production is DRUM N' SKILLZ, fellow West Palm Beach, FL native. He handles each percussive harmony. Not only do they vary from the generic radio songs, they also differ from one another.

All  I Want Is U has to make you think about that somebody. Coop is soulful as a ballad, his feature, TJ Valentine brings the youthful tone. The song becomes a ride in itself with a up and down tempo mixture. I Love Your Dress is an intimate treat for the ladies. It compliments who she is, what she does to maintain.

By any chance conversation is still going, those two should have shorty asking, "Who's that ."  If not, here's the deal closer. A song that has broke radio, as well as clubs. No Mercy could be played for more occasions than with your lover. The chorus and beat have a motivational effect for sports. Shows artistic character in the multi-dimensional artist. Let's not forget why we came, though. 

This is the new version of what we used to call slow jams. Bring back that feeling of  earning the company of that special lady. Lustful joints are played all over the place, this project puts love back in the music.

 Coop has a special guest appearance February 11th at Play House mondays. Another big event hosted by DJ EppsMing Lee celebrates her birthday, plus a cameo from Alce F the vibes are flowing though  the next morning. Get your copy of the album at any  platform and  come party .  Thanks  for  tuning in, God bless!
