The Oath – Jamal Gasol x Wavy Da Ghawd

What It Sound Like?

Time to get up with one of our Featured Artists again, what a journey. We've been seeing a lot of Jamal Gasol in the past couple years. Glad I've had the opportunity to cover his musical grind at an early stage.  Plus, an early stage for my underground write-ups. 

Staying busy with guest appearances, albums of his own, pop-ups, and guess what?   Mr 31 landed a spot with fellow Piff teammate, John Creasy on Rap Is Outta Control. Happens to be one the flyest Hip Hop shows on Shade 45, hosted by DJ Eclipse and DJ Riz. They roasted the session in the midst of legend, Masta Ace!

Jamal got an inferno track from Brooklyn based producer, Wavy Da Ghawd and went to work. The keys and drums alternate never overstaying its welcome. Gasol uses each section of the beat, as he matches with flow. Content is still improving, I like how he pointed out what people call "Freestyles". He bars out for the remainder, no hook needed. Enjoy this loosey, usually means an album is on the way. 

Jamal and Wavy reconnect for a banga! This is free at SoundCloud, so get stream crazy. Thank you for your company and responses. May the Most High bless you and yours. 

Coke Beam – Cocareef x Ambishouz

What It Sound Like?

New week started, I hope yours is well. My privileged position in this new element of Hip Hop strikes again. Did I mention, I’m cool with cool people? 

I got another exclusive from Cocareef, the active RAN family member! During his Diaz Brothers run, he dropped off that bag. Accompanied by more family, you know street-viral producer, Onaje Jordan. And it doesn’t get more relative than daughter of  7th Angel, say hi to Ambishouz. Talk nice she’s a young lady, soon to be High School grad, and direct lineage.

Jordan set a foundation cooking with jazz, as Ambishouz harmonics loop along. Head nod factor is up, feel good music you could two step to, even though the lyrics are tuff. Some real valuables being polished in this tune. Coca staying sucka-free, showing you how to stand on your own ten toes. I’m feeling the slick verses with a simplified hook delivery. Some more slick talking going there, as well. My first time hearing the Cocareef Records first lady tonight, Amaya has the red carpet now.Three different talents working together is good for sake of the song, the paper is sure to follow. 

Get to YouTube and leave your early comments. Thanks for staying up with me, you’re forever appreciated. Yahweh blessing!

 

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.

Garlic Wings – The Musalini X Risktaker P

What It Sound Like?

This week is still rolling with fly tunes. So many to get to, so little time. Fortunately, tonight I’m able to mention an artist I have been wanting to introduce All Nighters to. From Washington Heights, NY, The Musalini has been expanding his travels through music. He has that classic hustle that all our topics share. Creative ways of pushing his merch, and constantly throwing pop-ups!

His popularity with the streamers has been existent, leading to biggups from large names in the business. For one to take notice of the likes of Roc Marciano, his content is usually hard body. This approach happens to be more subtle, yet just as dope. Garlic Wings talks to the ladies, something our site could use, for a change. Jo$e Cienfuego$ got a smooth sax over the one-drop drum pattern. Makes you wanna scoop lil mama right up. Then, Risktaker P knows what to sing and how to sing it. That hooked gets tattooed on the brain.

Mus  ain’t to be taken light for the softer tone single. He still gives it up from a goon’s perspective. More of the hard joints could be found on the latest album, MSG. A project that sounds promising. For now, click away on this link and pull shorty close. 

Than you to everybody checking for the write-ups. Artists, fans, bloggers and all in between. The kind words mean a lot to me. I only want the best my people, God bless!

 

 

IKING (This Weekend) – Lupus Dei X General Back Pain

What It Sound lt Like?

I hope everyone is stuffed well with meals. Now, make some more room for these goods! Tonight is about indulging, like kings. IKING, in fact. Stemming from two potent appearances by Lupus Dei on album Holy Hands by General Back Pain. The Jesrey-Cali conduit knew the chemistry would lead to a sequel. 

It was such a smooth connection, one of the new titles plays off the previous EP.  Holy Land is just one out of the pack filled with original lyrics and flows. Safe to say, no one is sounding like this. The contrast in voice tones have a genius result. They each possess grown-man bars over a prestige beat selection.

The entire track list was produced by Matthew Godfather, The Historian and Vinny Knuckles. Pure sounds of authentic Hip Hop from song to song. These instrumentals sound as if they are telling stories, themselves. Add emcees as such, you got a project of poise. Actually, the duo compliments the piece with minor acting. Just enough to complete an effective interlude.

This is a well put together album, lyrics, beats, content, and personality. It’s really for all ages, there is always a line to relate to. Let alone, my four year old recognized one of the rapper’s voices.  So, it has the skills for adults with simplicity for family of any age. I, personally can’t wait for them to put this or another joint in the stores. As for now, show your support at SoundCloud. Thank you to all visitors, return viewers included! Your reactions keep this going. Blessing from the Most High!
