The ever-impressive Eternia went back to the 1990’s to revive an incredible classic to remind people how nice hip-hop used to be. It’s an update/upgrade to “Broken Language” and it makes me wish all of hip-hop in 2017 was this as intense as this song.
There was a time when the Jungle Brothers spoke about being straight out the jungle. 27 years later, New York City may be cleaner and arguably nicer but Endemic Emerald and Skanks The Rap Martyr speak on the pride of the boroughs with “Straight Out Da NYC”. where they were able to team up with Shatike and Rim. The song is a hint of the forthcoming album due out on May 30th called Rapsploitation (No Cure/IDC).
I’m not certain if he’s ravishing but Ricky Rude is here to tell you about how modern times and what it means to survive, even if it means going towards another direction. This one was nicely directed by Jared Biunno while Rude co-produced this with Brainwave and Jordan Graves.
Do not call this a comeback, for Adam Reverie has been here for years but he has a new track for you and he wants to share it with you. This one was produced by Clyde Strokes and it’s about having a “Passion” for it that can’t be denied. Now listen to this and don’t deny its power.
In this case, HeatWave should not be confused with legendary British soul band Heatwave of “Boogie Nights”, “The Groove Line”, and “Always And Forever” fame but rather someone from, Vancouver, BC via Atlanta. He is going to releasing album called The Masses Volume 3 and this one is here to keep you satisfied for the time being. It’s called “Young Motsami”. The album will be out in June.
It has been awhile since we last heard some new music from Seattle’s Wizdom but he has returned in 2017 with something quite superfresh called “Therapy”, which came out today. He worked with producer Reminiss to put this together, not sure if there will be a bigger project or if this will simply be the start of a string of more material but nonetheless, noce to hear from the Wiz again.
You’ve seen a number of people rolling in your lifetime but H-Ryda wants you to picture him doing it. “Picture Me Rolling” is his new one and if you think he is familiar in any way, he was a member of The Outlawz. Now you can see what he’s up to these days.
This is not just a mere collaboration, this is an adventure and what an adventure this is. From Michigan is James Gardin, who worked with French producer Terem to do a song called “GO!”, which may have been done with a winter mentality but with hope that better things are ahead. More music from them will be on its way.
Black Canvas is an EP from Brinson and one of the tracks is said to be his “personal journey to overcome pain and hurt. Hurt from betrayal of best friends, and pain from past hurts that came from the church.” It’s a way to wanting to leave something behind in order to find a much better future, if not a much better self, something we can all appreciate. The video was directed by Will Thomas.
Animation is strong in “Dang Is Invincible” and what does it meant to say dang to a music video? Do they mean dang in itself is invincible or “dang (comma) is invincible?” and wouldn’t that statement leave people hanging? Anyway, here it is. Hella Personal Film Festival is the album this is taken from.
