Blessings! The social media gurus have smiled upon us and lead us victoriously to some solid hip hop.
I know I’ve been out of the Hip Hop loop for quite a while, but I saw a clip of this video and had to share. Jus Derrick is an up and coming emcee, who currently has a project available on streaming platforms titled The New 90s, Vol 1. I gave it a brief listen myself, and so far so good. Check it out and let me know your thoughts! #DoItNow #letsgo
Shouts out to istillloveher.de on Instagram for the good ears.
Rejoice! New visuals from Imagine Dragons for the single ‘Natural’. The Band is currently on tour in Europe and has some U.S. dates coming soon. Check out the video and visit their website for more merchandise, tour info and music news Imaginedragonsmusic.com. #Go
Rejoice! New music from 60 East and Ariano with The Circles EP. The southern California artists combine lyrical content over stone solid production. In my opinion, this seems like a more personal effort from 60, as most of the tracks can relate to most people at different periods of time. Conceptually, the project takes on the positives and negatives of life and how everything comes full circle. I love the instrumentation and good vibes that this project presents. Two of the stand out tracks on the project are I Will, featuring Ariano’s son, Sage Price, and of course The Light. Don’t take my word for it, check it out yourself! Don’t be afraid to show your love by visiting the website and getting familiar with the twitter pages Ariano and 60 East
New visuals from your girl Kis Da Ms Menace. The DC native never disappoints, as she demonstrates her lyrical skill in the heart of Brooklyn. We have to support our femcees in a culture where males tend to dominate the rap game. Check out the video and show your support by visiting her site phokisphilms.com and dropping her a line. #letsgo #doitnow
This is the time where we rejoice.
Janelle Monae is back with her short film (emotion picture) Dirty Computer. Yes fandroids, the album is out and doing record numbers, but we all know to expect Jane to give us food for thought. We expect entertainment. We expect art. She doesn’t disappoint as she returns as 57821, a person who doesn’t fit into society’s small box. She is a rebel (of course) and the short film tackles MUCH of the issues many of us face today. I won’t give away too much, but I suspect that this emotion will spark all types of conversations. At least…I hope it will. Pay attention to some of the symbolism and keep your third eye open. Pretty interesting stuff.
Show your support by buying the album available everywhere music can be found.
Rejoiiice! Not sure if you’ve heard this one yet, but PLEASE play at loud volumes.
Greta Van Fleet is an American Rock band with a solid sound and a new EP titled Black Smoke Rising. I first caught wind of them on one of my favorite local rock stations and am an instant fan. Check out their website here and get familiar with the new project. Do It Now.
