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….

“98 Juvie”

Charlotte NC, artist Well$ blesses our page with his new visual for his imminent single “98 Juvie” featuring Deniro Farrar. The two rappers exchange metaphors and similes over the esoteric instrumental creating a hood gospel feel that is very refreshing. Well$ gives listeners the blue print of survival as he challenges his peers to stand up and take responsibility for their actions like a man. Focusing on family, friends and success while leaving the distractions on the way side. This track is a banger and we expect to hear and see much more from the two, but in the mean time make sure you stream the video below and as always….

“Pocket” by Drag-On

Hip Hop Heads it’s been a cold winter, but Da Bassment is bringing you some HEAT from Ruff Ryders alum Drag-On with his new single “Pocket”. Since his 99’ breakout single “Down Bottom” ft. Juvenile (had girls twerkin on motorcycles waaaay before Miley Cyrus was thought of lol) this raw emcee has always gone hard in everything he’s done, earning him a gold certification for his debut album Opposite of H20 and movie roles in Exit Wounds and Cradle To The Grave. After a short hiatus from the game following his departure from Full Surface Records, Drag has been on a tear releasing underground bangers and freestyles under his own label Hood Environment. With his most recent single “Pocket” Drag displays his versatility as an artist, spittin’ bars as if it were the early 2000’s but with a swagger conducive to the growing times. The single was inspired by his humble beginnings with Ruff Ryders but also serves as a reminder to the new cats not to get out of pocket or the fire will come out. Be sure to download “Pocket” below and check out Drag-On’s Freestyle Pt.15 for some straight bars!!!

Anderson .Paak| Malibu

“Music is not music without soul” and the 29 year old Oakland native Anderson .Paak is the definition of soul. Following his debut album Venice .Paak delivers yet another masterpiece with Malibu. The 16-track project is full of energy thanks to his funky beats, witty wordplay, and a charisma that the music industry has been lacking for a while now. You definitely can see the fruits of his labor from Dr. Dre’s Grammy nominated Compton album as he scored features from BJ The Chicago Kid, Rhapsody, and hip-hop legend Talib Kweli to name a few. .Paak shows his versatility as an artist as well as he not only sings but displays his rapping ability. The album doesn’t just sound good though, his music has a message highlighting the real life situations and perspectives many artists of his stature seem to either conveniently forget or consciously neglect for financial gain. .Paak is gearing up for a huge 2016 with his band The FREE NATIONALS as they are set to tour Europe in February and to perform at Coachella this upcoming April. Malibu is available for purchase on iTunes and Google Play.
