SD Interview: Rome Fortune Reveals Slipknot & Toro Y Moi Collaborations

SD Interview: Rome Fortune Reveals Slipknot & Toro Y Moi Collaborations

Rome Fortune is an artist you just gravitate toward. Looks are everything in this business, and Rome stands out. His colored beard, unique fashion style, and album covers (specifically the Beautiful Pimp series) are all examples of how he’s able to draw in the attention of outsiders. Once he reels them in, Rome can continue to impress with quality music. As he puts it, fans love consistency only if you’re giving them something different each time. Each release Rome Fortune brings falls in that category with collaboration EPs, utilizing one producer, or branching off to try a new sound. While… continue reading

Review: Curren$y – Pilot Talk III

Review: Curren$y – Pilot Talk III

The release of Curren$y’s Pilot Talk III wasn’t like the previous installments. Currently, you can’t find the album on iTunes or in stores. It’s merely bundled into a $100 USB package via Spitta’s website that includes an assortment of things like a lookbook and some exclusive apparel (technically, he views the album as free while you pay for all those other items). For die-hard fans, this would work. The Nipsey Hussle method, but Curren$y skipped out on a step. Regardless of where you sell it, there are people who just want the album.

SD Interview: Mod Sun Talks Upcoming Books, Full House, Look Up Features & More

SD Interview: Mod Sun Talks Upcoming Books, Full House, Look Up Features & More

Singing Mod Sun’s praises to the music industry is becoming repetitive and cliche. He’s a breath of fresh air. Cliche. He’s doing something no other rappers are doing. Cliche. However, it’s easy to see why these cliches are necessary when you listen to his music and hear him speak. Mod has the power to turn dark into light, negative into positive, and frowns to smiles. Why wouldn’t you want to be apart of that? In our sit-down at El Corazon before he hit the stage, Mod Sun broke down why he wanted to write a book, adapting it for the… continue reading

Stealth Is Metal Ft. TreaZon – HappiNess

Anytime two up and coming MCs I respect and admire collaborate, it rarely disappoints. Atlanta meets Cleveland on “HappiNess” as Stealth Is Metal enlists TreaZon to assist another depth record. The song takes us through the two minds as they journey down the path to find happiness and dealing with the problems that can occur when chasing it. If I Don’t Believe Then Who Will? is coming soon (but not soon enough). TreaZon’s Versus Time is also on the way. Follow @SermonsDomain
