Super Saiyan

Hip Hop has no limits, it’s one of the only genre’s that can cross race, gender and sex. Its influence is evident when you see people across the globe connecting and relating to the same songs, from news anchors to political leaders everyone has referenced and credited Hip Hop as a universal feel that we are all familiar with. Today the talented artist Loh has whipped up some frequencies that touches many generations of people with the latest single “Super Saiyan”. This electrical summer anthem marries the two worlds of anime and trap, not you’re most traditional mix but certainly necessary. With visuals from the nostalgic Dragon ball Z TV series this video jogs your memory of the golden era of anime, accented with heavy 808’s and hi-hats creating a unorthodox soundtrack that you wouldn’t mind bumping in public. We all have a little super saiyan in us, and Loh helps bring out the goku and gohan in all of us. Make sure you stream the video below and as always…

DOES LIFE IMITATE ART OR DOES ART IMITATE LIFE? 

There’s something special about being able to transfer your imagination and ideas to paper, especially when you have an imagination like Markus Prime, a 28 year old cartoon/portrait artist from New York. Prime’s artwork is very refreshing and unique as he draws cartoon characters we have grown up watching and adds his creative spin to them creating superhero’s and characters that defy societies norm, like illustrating black women as superhero’s, to create an image with children they normally wont see on television. Prime is challenging normality and deconstructing the standard in cartoons and comics, creating drawings for children of all colors to enjoy. Subconsciously he is planting a seed in a young mind that they to can do super human things and be heroes in their own lives. Growing up, Prime would use his drawings as a way to cope with his emotions and deal with his problems. Now he has matured into a well-known artist who’s goal is to redefine the cartoon and comic culture with diversity. With over 100k followers on Instagram Prime is starting to become well known and appreciated by the masses, using his art to change the culture and impact the youth. Prime looks at his work as a movement to raise awareness and confidence with all who come in contact with it, conveying a message within each illustration.  You can see more artwork from Prime by visiting his website at mlnnprime.com
