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’

Take A Walk In ANXT’s Shoes On Gut Wrenching New Single ‘preSSure’

It’s been a minute since I’ve heard from FFD favorite ANXT. The Chicago emcee/producer has deleted all of his music on SoundCloud (except the one above) and has switched over to Spotify, Apple Music and YouTube. On his SoundCloud profile he has no link to his Twitter page, and perhaps this is a deliberate move. … More Take A Walk In ANXT’s Shoes On Gut Wrenching New Single ‘preSSure’

The title is a clever double entendre, inspired by Eazy-E’s explicit … More Izzy Strange Finds His Inner Eazy-E In Latest Project ‘Izzy Duz It’

Musa Reems Comes Alive In Visual To New Single ‘Flodge’

I wrote about Musa Reems’ latest track Flodge’ about a month ago. Here’s an excerpt: ‘Flodge contains a lot of flexing, a fluid flow, and the youngin’ letting loose. He’s carefree, confident, and having a lot of fun.’ It was awesome to hear Musa less calculated, and full of joy. I had high expectations for the visual. I’m not gonna … More Musa Reems Comes Alive In Visual To New Single ‘Flodge’
