FreshfromDE Links With Michael Christmas For New Conceptual Track “Indigo Children”

I got in tune with Delaware up and comer FreshfromDE last year through a submission – resulting in a dissection interview. He had just dropped his seminal EP The Ritual that  mixed hip-hop, trap, boom bap, and even pop for an even keeled project that was featured on an abundance of blogs. 2018 has been good to the ever growing MC, and to keep his momentum going he’s dropped … Continue reading FreshfromDE Links With Michael Christmas For New Conceptual Track “Indigo Children”

D2X & Kid Marquis Compete Bar For Bar on New Collab ‘Quis & Demo’

D2X and Kid Marquis are some of Chicago’s brightest stars. While many are still unaware of D’s greatness, hopefully his newest track will seal the deal. D2X & Kid have worked together before, but their new collab Quis & Demo is easily their best work. On the bass heavy, high energy banger (produced by Kid himself) both MC’s try to outdo one another in just under 2 minutes. … Continue reading D2X & Kid Marquis Compete Bar For Bar on New Collab ‘Quis & Demo’

LiMM Finds His Inner Trap On New Track “How it B”

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from LiMM, but he’s back and better than ever. He’s come a long way from our first post of his mixtape years ago – finding an ever flowing voice over choice instrumentals that evoke R&B & grimy trap. His newest How it B is pretty vulgar, but I’m posting because LiMM has worked hard and deserves all of … Continue reading LiMM Finds His Inner Trap On New Track “How it B”

flowsfordays Premiere: Mountos – Conditional Friends (New Track)

I have so much respect for artists who wear their heart on their sleeve. They stand behind the microphone, and perhaps behind Twitter, but the vulnerability factor is still very much there. Many of us are afraid to look weak….repressing these feelings and taking them out on loved ones who are none the wiser. Some hurt others. And some turn the pain into beautiful music. … Continue reading flowsfordays Premiere: Mountos – Conditional Friends (New Track)

Young Deuces of Milwaukee duo SNYD has decided to go the solo route. His first solo effort, My Unapologetic Black Thoughts, is a stunning introduction to the skilled MC.

MUBT is a mixture of conceptual songs and spoken word with … Continue reading Young Deuces Shows No Remorse On First Solo Effort ‘My Unapologetic Black Thoughts’

I wish I could learn more … Continue reading Where Is The Love? The Power of Relating to & Supporting Artists (Editorial)

Alt-R&B Vocalist ZAK Reinvents Himself With New, Self Produced Single “Crucified’

Last May, Washington vocalist ZAK impressed me with his melodic single On The Line. I immediately hit him up for a dissection interview (remember those?) and it became clear that he absolutely loves making music.
