The Fuego Tape – Banks Davocki

What It Sound Like?

One of the craziest things happened to me this week. I got a submission from an artist I haven't written about, as yet. Forgive me, initially I didn't realize who I was receiving the pack from. I knew the name sounded familiar, still. The first joint that plays is a banger I've been rockin to for a month or so. Yup, I heard that open to Thankful drop. "Wait a minute, this that wave, !" I'm saying to myself.

Small world, huh?   More reason to be grateful for my position. Banks Davocki is a breath of fresh air, some chilly air from Niagara Falls, NY. We're keeping the young world energy tonight. You'll sense it from the beat selection, joints to keep you moving. One of the producers is resurfacing from earlier this week, Kid Ocean.  Also building the vibe to this body of work, Cashmoney AP, Sult4n, Mubz Beatz, Almighty Beats, Ezra, and Cormill

TFT is versatile, covering extremes from from hard times to stunt mode. It's for young cats staying focused, getting business. Davocki is an artist that has substance. The category his tunes are placed in is usually overlooked for bars. He makes sure you don't look past him. Creativity pours out in X - Files featuring Lingo Da God. The track pays homage to the 90's series, the emcees roll through situations of ex girlfriends. 

Relationships play a common role through this album, he's got his hands full with the ladies. Rocking With Me gets the skin crawling, an anthem for anyone striving. Tunes such as Never Had with Jynx and I'm Too Busy featuring Luck Luciano bring me back to a younger me. Recognize the connections? Can't forget Mark Ant, Tru DLN, and SG Lingo for adding fuel to the fire. 

This piece has an inspiring vibe with choices for singles. One already a hit in major platforms. Look forward to more Banks Davocki. Get your copy at your favorite digital music store. Thank you eternally for all the positive words from the viewers. I pray for the best in your lives, bless up!

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!

Kasa Take The Blunt 3 – Go Green Luck

What It Sound Like?

No letting off the pedal, let's get right into this new work. You remember when them Niagara Falls music gates opened up? We heard from some cool artists that were distant for so long. We're catching back up with one of those Dirty Waters natives, Go Green Luck. He's bringing his third installment of Take The Blunt with DJ Kasa. Since the second release, Luck has been running it up. Catch his IG feed, he's always in the action.

Let's switch the wave up a little from the samples to the energy tracks. GGL has more style than the average, does things others won't. Most of this project is driven by beats from scratch. Tunes that can go from the radio to the clubs right away. I need to get back in the gym and put this in my playlist. Definitely the joints to play around the ladies. He shows he could hang with the spittas, as well on tracks like Pasta and DJ Kasa Radio Freestyle with our boy Jamal Gasol. Told you this was a Dirty Waters situation. 

More guest arrivals from Tae Pac, Jay Grand, Abeer, and camp member Go Green Outlaw. Listen to the voice of the youth displayed over 808's. These are the producers you want to look out for. Pablo MCR, $urpass, Young Devante, King Mezzy, TNTXD x TayTay Made It, Kid Ocean, and Drum Dummy. Shouts to them for the demanding sounds.

Top is another instrumental - type track where he spits that pain. That and 24K got more of the vibe  I could roll with. You have to take notice in his ability to flow in variety. Luck makes sure you don't bored of any segment of this album. He has star quality and is on his way. Add TTB3 to your lists at Soundcloud. It's free and fun to listen to. 

Thank you  to every reader passing through. Some of the vets are coming around, now. Blessings from the Most High!

The Light – Lunatic x Robert Deniro

What It Sound Like?

Time for some more new music, one of my favorite parts of the day. In this community, it's all about spreading love. After all, part of the word is unity. Our readers are gonna dig this group effort for tonight's topic. Got some names that you have been seeing around the way, plus one of our established producers at RAN.

Finally get to decorate the walls with this special piece by Mr Yellow Baclava. His work can be seen from across the pond in the UK. He's been animating photographs bringing that digital extension to reality. From the Galesi Brescia album orchestrated by Robert Deniro, we get into this steaming loosey. Biggups to Lunatic for this burst of Hip Hop. Hailing from the inner city of Portsmouth, VA. Rob laced him with a lively loop, so the bars are certain to follow. 

I thought the only hooks were the lyrics that stick to your ribs with accurate voice projection. However, the artist does close us out with a chant shining Light for the lost. Lun throwing game at you on this tune. You gotta pay attention, it don't cost a penny. It's complementary with the record. 

One of eleven joints for the streamers presented by Rob and friends of ours. He knows what digs to hit us with and what fits the emcee. Get your copy and share. Thanks for all the support, it means a lot to me. I got no schooling for this. Look out for upcoming write-ups, God bless!



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.
