Sango

Oshun has been soaring into the stratosphere with their recent array of music, visuals and fashion creating art with a message, embedding culture and invoking thought into their listeners touching on modern day topics while connecting them to  divine/ancient law. The title of their latest single is called “Sango” (God of Thunder) which is the equal and opposite to Oshun, a masculine energy for balancing the female energy “Oshun”. This all may seem a bit mythological but Oshun connects this african myth/folktale into modern day relationships we face today. Confirming that nothing is new under the sun and how we are all one whether we realized it or not.  As always they depict beautiful cultured art pushing the envelop with visuals and fashion summoning vibes from the ancestors. Make sure you stream this video below and as always…

“THAT CHICKEN”

Brookyln’s Dyme-A-Duzin elevates the game giving his listeners a glimpse of his home town Utica Ave in his recent single “That Chicken.” Dyme contemplates his darker perception of life while bending corners in his hood as he visits the local gas station and corner store, capturing everyday life organically. Dyme finds his sound with smooth, subtle melodies that create a melancholy feel, building on the tension of the sounds that marry to the electric celestial. “That Chicken” is a motivating tool for viewers to stop making excuses and just get it!

East Coast Ain’t Dead

Illanoise releases his very impressive album titled “East Coast Ain’t Dead”, a deep street knowledge driven album speaking on real life situations. His lyrical output is exceptionally original along with his cadence and polished delivery. This 21 track album may seem intimidating but Illnoise has accepted the challenge and holds his own on every track. His impressive talent stands out in an over-saturated game, placing him on a different level. Illnoise tracks shines light on the negative ways people are taking advantage of others, the problems of our country and relatable stories dealing with relationships. Overall this album will catapult him to the top of the Indie Hip Hop scene and if nothing else prove that East Coast Hip Hop is not dead as long as he is making music. Stream the album below and as always…

Van Gogh!

Van-gogh!

We all like artist for different reasons. Some listen for style and delivery, others for punchlines and hooks, but seldom do you run across a talent who has the whole package. Fresco Van Gogh, a native from Brooklyn New York, is spreading his wings in the Atlanta scene with his new project coming out first quarter this year called Brooklyn, GA. Van Gogh established a solid buzz in 2015 but is looking to make a splash in the industry this year. With a heavy 808 sounds accompanied with vigilant lyrics Van Gogh creates a perfect blend of East Coast gritty rap with a Down South “boomtrap” production, making it easy to see why this album will be a recipe for success. Fresco brings substance and content with thought provoking songs like “Stalin Freestyle” where he encourages you to stop staling in life and get out and get it, and “UNDRFTD” a single where he lets it be known he is not looking for any hand-outs  understanding his potential and knowing his future is in his handsChoosing the name Van Gogh automatically raises the bar of expectations and Fresco surely meets those expectations. Using his words to paint a picture for the listener and great production as his canvas when you hear Van Gogh’s music you can’t help to compare his music to a masterpiece.
