LOGIC Under Pressure Album Cover 500x500 Logic   Under Pressure

I’m lost for words.  I’ve been playing this moment out in my head for years, forecasting scenarios and making predictions on Logic’s debut.  “Is Logic ever going to let me buy a song? What will the first single sound like?  Who’s going to produce it?  What will it be called?  When will the album drop?” …I could go on and on but I’ll spare you.  I’ll continue to play out new scenarios in my head, but what is boils down to is this. LOGIC IS OFFICIALLY ON ITUNES AND HIS DEBUT ALBUM, UNDER PRESSURE, WILL HIT BOX STORE SHELVES & DIGITAL STORES ON 10/21!!  Not only is his debut self titled single crack, but he produced it himself.  Put your seat belts on kids, the ride has officially begun.  #UnderPressure

Hip-Hop, Rap | Mike Melinoe – Hold My Dust

 Mike Melinoe   Hold My Dust

Hailing from Detroit is Mike Melinoe, an emcee and part of the rap conglomerate known as Organic Geniuses. In anticipation of his new project, PropeR Element$, Melinoe has dropped off a captivating single titled, “Hold My Dust”.

His voice is raspy, yet intoxicating. His lyricism is dark, yet playful. The instrumental is old-school, yet contemporary and unique.

Nothing about “Hold My Dust” is ordinary, and that shows. While only 22, Melinoe strikes me as a young emcee to really make some moves this coming year.

Tune back in for PropeR Element$, and enjoy some hip-hop for your weekend.

Fueling my addiction for Virginia-based rap music is the new comer Bobby Capri. Although this project wasn’t even supposed to come out, I’m sure glad it did. There is an essence of old-school paired with contemporary rhyming to make for a very enjoyable project.

Virginia’s music scene is bubbling to say the least, so it will be exciting to see where Capri ends up within it all.

Hip-Hop, Rap | Pell – Runaway (Video)

Posted by on September 1, 2014

After dropping his incredibly cohesive, Floating While Dreaming album earlier this year, Pell added on some visuals for the somber single, “Runaway”. The video, albeit simple, adds a level to Pell’s already vivid storyline. The blues and blacks of the video compliment Pell’s melodic voice, and take you through his turmoil-filled love life.

Things are just starting to hear up for this young emcee, so be on the lookout for more music and videos, very soon.

Hip-Hop, Rap | FNT Premiere: San Williams – Really Good To Me [Video]

Posted by on August 18, 2014

A few months back we presented to you the chilling ballad by San Williams titled, “Really Good To Me”. Contradictory to its title, the song, and now accompanying video, depict the troublesome relationship between two teenagers looking for love. Quoting our good blog friends at Potholes, San “walks through watery wastelands and dreamy destinations” while “fluctuating [his voice] with a certain resonance, as if balancing passion and reservation, while a luscious landscape progresses forward beneath the surface.”

The video adds a whole extra layer of depth to the already emotional song. Director Tyler Mitchell uses the instrumentation to his advantage and cuts frame after frame of beautiful imagery, bringing you in to San’s shoes.

San has been religiously recording material for his new project, and it’s only a matter of time before he takes the world by storm.

For those of you who aren’t too familiar with Gramatik, this is probably the funnest beat he had on his release of SB4, which was a lil teaser before TAOR, called “Monster Stomp“. To make it even more an a banger, ProbCause hopped on it for fun and together the collaboration makes for a progressive hip hop song. I’d like to see more collab’s from them in the future, agreed?
