Geno Pacino Fights For His Rights On ‘Justice’

MC’s like Geno Pacino are the reason why I have such a soft spot for nasty, grimy, street-oriented hip-hop. It’s menacing, in your face and unforgiving. And his new single, Justice, is no exception. The instrumental is one of the nastiest I’ve heard this year. The bass is an intimidating grumble, followed by hard-hitting trap percussion with bleak … More Geno Pacino Fights For His Rights On ‘Justice’

B1GJuice Sounds Smooth As Ever On “99 Freestyle”

As a music nerd, my absolute favorite thing about the summer is all of the joyous, carefree music that comes along with it.

ILLECT RECORDING’s James Gardin & Terem Team Up For New Track ‘Groove’ (Review)

ILLECT Recordings signee’s James Gardin and Terem recently teamed up for a funky, new record titled Groove. Terem brings out the best in James and his half-sung raps and catchy chorus. Groove has potential, but it’s lacking polish. James often goes off-key, and the volume of his voice changes rapidly. I’m not sure if that’s due … More ILLECT RECORDING’s James Gardin & Terem Team Up For New Track ‘Groove’ (Review)
