Only One

Lorine chia is definitely embracing her Queenhood in her contemporary upbeat reggae blues track “Only One”. Emphasizing the loneliness that has came over time through the winter months forcing her to look toward her own solitude for some time to  introspect the entire situation. It is hard to dwell on the former memories and impact your significant other brought  to your life. Continually reminiscing and ruminating indefinitely freezes you in a season full of barren branches and/or life growth. For you cannot move on holding onto old what if’s, and maybe’s. With seasons changing Lorine reminds listeners to hold on to your proper Queenhood or Kingship by strategizing and internally allow the current change to grow you and not wither your status. Remember you hold your status in life and  dictate future. Make sure you stream the video below as Ms. Lorraine Chia brings us to a place of germination….Appreciate the Art| Admire the Craft

From Germany with Love.

With bringing in the New Year of 2017, Da Bassment Blog is spotlighting Germany’s very own, Ace Tee. Ace Tee brings us back into the 1990’s urban swag with inspiration from the hit girl groups, TLC and XSCAPE. “Bist tu Down” translated into English is “Are You Down?” . Of course you will be after embracing the art. For the video is spoken in the Germanic language. Visually you can see the heart of New York through graffiti work. Wearing the aesthic urban clothing of the 90’s era, Ace Tee and those she connects with, can all unargumentally be seen dancing and invoking the times that we have already left behind, but still are continually inspired by. It is an impeccable example of music bridging the gap between seas, time, and language barriers.
No doubt that Hip-Hop has changed our world. Leaving behind the negated world of Censorship Hip hop has been an outlet for those otherwise not able to express the visions, issues, and continuing changes of the world. From the early 1970’s into contemporary times you can see the formulation of a new wave for artist in the African American community to unleash changes in the culture of America as well as Globally. From music, clothing, visual mediums, and language, early hip hop birthed the way for African Americans to be front and center stage in impacting not only those in America but the others around the World. Give Ace Tee a listening ear….

No Presidents

“Land of the Free, Home of the Brave” still in the year 2016, we are taught the illusion that our country ,The United States of America, is a perfect harmonious society. In reality, we suffer from many underlying societal flaws and fallacies. They are plaguing the people and pretending to provide salvation and false hope, implementing their govern laws and social structures to keep a hierarchy of power through control, creating a domino effect that’s generational afflicting poverty, mental instability and illness, failed education systems, manipulated penial institutions and poor health care. In result, this also creates a different kind of breed; one whom needs no assistance from the long arm that oppresses its people. Today we have such a word warrior from Memphis Tennessee, Jessi Jumanji, and she delivers food for thought with her debut single “No Presidents”. A very time sensitive song shedding light on topics such as the presidential election as well as the humane injustices haunting the Sam Dubose Trial in the Greater Cincinnati Area. Encouraging listeners to govern themselves no matter who’s in office, to take responsibility of their community by resurrecting self-sufficient business, and a nation of thinker’s who look within for leadership and stability. Eliminating a political system and government that promises to fix the same problems every four years. Forcing Jessi to raise the question do we really need a President to lead us? If the same problems have been trickled down since the birth of this nation, then why do we continue putting people in office who don’t deliver results? The definition of insanity is when you continue to do the same thing and expect different results; so, as a nation are we all just insane?

Hope It don’t Kill Me

Arin Ray blesses our page today with his romantic language of love on his latest single ‘Hope It Don’t Kill Me’ which features the talented guru Boogie. The two discuss love and relationship and how they sacrificed themselves for love, in hopes that it’s not their demise. Taking a road less traveled by most youth in our generation, living in a over saturated society that promotes one-night stands and emotionless hook-ups, making love more about lust than feeling. Which is why it’s so important Arin releases this single to let his listeners know that chivalry isn’t dead by showing positive images of minority youth together in a relationship.  Providing an outlet of simple reality, showing vulnerability and a human element instead of the far-fetched happy ever after stories or one hitter quitters we are so use to seeing. Make sure you do yourself a favor and stream the video below and as always…
