Abstract Hip-Hop | Appleby – Drinkin’

Posted by on January 22, 2015


Listen up and listen good. Appleby has been grabbing my attention with each of his few but powerful releases. Today we welcome Him and his brand new single Drinkin’ to FNT. He brings a new and different sound with each new song, and Drinkin’ is no different. Bee actually had a quick something to say about the song:

“The concept and act of drinking is a newly formed habit of mine. Introduced to me last year through an adventurous relationship that ended in mutual silence. Drinkin’ gives insight but reserves the details for a future release.”

What impresses me so much with Appleby and his sound is the artistry behind it. Whether it is the hooks, verses, or production, everything builds together in fantastic harmony. Coupled with Appleby’s fantastic lyricism, his sound is something that will be around to stay. Get to know Appleby and his sound. Also Bee decided to give out another track “Scars in Waiting” which also will help you get to know Appleby. Enjoy and look out for more to come.

Hip-Hop | ELHAE – Halfway Love (Prod. By Rascal)

I’ve never written about hip-hop, mostly because I have a love-hate relationship with the genre. That’s right, I fit in with those who question the direction this genre is headed in but that’s a conversation for another time. What I do know is ELHAE inspired me to post up this fresh-from-the-oven slice of lyricism that will melt you where you sit. This one is for the late nights – cop this free download if you know what’s good for you.

It is my honor to introduce Tray Jack and his latest release “Full Blast” to you all. Tray hit me up yesterday with his SoundCloud via my email, and I dig his sound heavy, and you should to. From the production choices, to his flow and lyricism, Tray Jack has it all, and his song “Full Blast” is a catchy mainstream hip-hop record that incorporates the acoustic guitar and some electro vibes. I really hope with this post, Tray’s talents are recognized and his sound makes its rounds in the blogosphere, because he deserves it. This is a must listen and a must download!

Hip-Hop | Accent — Careless (feat. Hunter Stout & Lyric Lincoln) [Prod. DJ Grumble]

Posted by on August 24, 2013

Accent is back and as lyrically sharp as he’s ever been, teaming up here with vocalists Hunter Stout and Lyric Lincoln (who we previously heard on Dylan Owen’s “The Window Seat”) for this upbeat breakup jam. Armed with an uptempo, sample-laden beat from DJ Grumble and a catchy hook, Accent takes the track the extra mile rhyming three 8-bar verses with more rhyme-schemes at work then most artists can muster in twice the space. His new mixtape, With A Little Help From My Friends II (see Kinetics’ part one here), is due out this fall, and is guaranteed to continue to merge his advanced lyricism with some more aesthetically-pleasing soundscapes.
