Video: Raz Simone Ft. Gifted Gab & Fatal Lucciauno – Same Problems

The past couple of weeks from Raz Simone have been pretty honest. There was “Macklemore & Chief Keef,” then “Drake & Macklemore’s Platform.”┬áIt’s clear that something triggered Raz to go into this mode where he’s addressing various racial issues in an “in your face” type of a way. Up until today, we didn’t know what was going to become of the videos, but he announced a new EP is dropping next week. On “Same Problems,” Raz links with Moor Gang’s first lady, Gifted Gab, and one of Seattle’s finest, quietest MCs in Fatal Lucciauno. The trio separate themselves from every… continue reading

Jay 305 Ft. Joe Moses – Thuggin’ (Prod. By DJ Mustard)

Jay 305 Ft. Joe Moses – Thuggin’ (Prod. By DJ Mustard)

Jay 305 is one of those artists I want to see succeed. I’m highly anticipating his debut project, but nobody knows when it’s expected to drop. His deal with Interscope seems to be the sole reason why it didn’t drop in 2014. Instead, we’ve gotten little guest features on songs with RJ and Royce The Choice, and Chris Brown and Tyga. Both were memorable enough, but getting a new song is refreshing. “Thuggin’” is what you’d expect from something over a DJ Mustard production. Jay and Joe Moses join forces to create catchy, street music. Nothing more, nothing less. It… continue reading

Sol – People + Pages

Sol – People + Pages

The word that describes Sol best is passion. That is the reason why he hasn’t given us any new songs since 2013’s Eyes Open EP. Passion oozes out of him that makes his music take longer to create. Also, he’s not shy in admitting to his fans that he experienced a creative block. The benefit for this is that Sol, still heavily in-demand from his fans, will put out two new songs that have a lengthier shelf life than artists who flood the internet’s highways. It seems highly likely to get an album this year too. Consider “People/Pages” a two-track… continue reading

Video: Raz Simone – Drake & Macklemore’s Platform

Raz Simone feels that he’s got next. The next leader in hip-hop. The same platform that you can find Drake and Macklemore on is where he envisions himself. Big difference between those two names and Raz’s music, which is why he’s confident that he can fit in the same realm. His music comes with a lot of messages, personal struggle, and hunger. For this latest visual, he backs it all up with interview samples from Tupac that extend the whole clip to eight minutes. If anything, it seems like Raz is coming right back with another project that has some… continue reading

Video: Raz Simone – Macklemore & Chief Keef

After releasing 11 songs on Cognitive Dissonance Pt. 2, Raz Simone isn’t finished. He continues on with a new video for a song that didn’t appear on the album. It’s crazy, because this sound fits very well into what he gave us on the album. This could’ve been the intro track. “Macklemore & Chief Keef” is one long audio rant with a minimal production backing, similar to “They’ll Speak.” Raz does what he does best on the song. He pours his heart and frustration into the words, citing still having to be in the streets and addresses the age old… continue reading

Snow Tha Product – Ay Ay Ay

First things first, don’t get caught up in Youtube comments. It’s difficult when you’re looking at an audio video. Sometimes the eyes wander as the mouse scrolls. Ugh. Thus, we’ve reached this point: “Oh man,when I first started listening to snow I thought she had some I’ll ass flows.I was expecting years later to hear some growth from her and I’m still waiting.I will continue to listen to her as I am a fan of her,but I just want to hear some real shit from her.what is her story?who is she be sides a partying mid 20’s Latin female?
