Albums | YONAS – The Black Canvas [EP]

Posted by on February 8, 2013

The Black Canvas

As you may have noticed, I haven’t been heavy on my blog game lately.  Thanks to Nemo, I have the afternoon off from work and I now have some time to share some new music before I get buried in pow pow.  I’m a few days late with YONAS’ newest album, The Black Canvas, his first project released under independent record label 1st Round Records, but it was a project I could not pass on.  Seven months after dropping The Transition mixtape, the Bronx bomber has yet another incredible body of work for his fans.  I’ve always expressed my passion for YONAS’ work, primarily because his music is honest, refreshing, and he holds an ability to paint a picture as good as any other MC in the game.  The Black Canvas is just that.

Production credits are impressive in themselves ranging from Teddy Roxpin (Clockwork) to Matty Trump (Put it Down, Y.O.N.A.S., and The Black Canvas) to DJ Corbett (previously featured on The Transition) to Lucian Walker and of course, Sean Ross.  As always, YONAS blends popular mainstream caliber production with honest, omniscient lyrics further validating him as one of the most versatile and creative artists rising up.

Hip-Hop, Videos | Chuck Da Ruckus – Real Life [Music Video]

I’m happy to introduce the newest college athlete/rapper to the good folk of FNT.  CDR aka Chuck Da Ruckus, a seasoned football star at Brown University who adopted music his senior year of high school, has since decided to pursue the latter hobby more seriously as “Real Life” marks the first ever release from the Philadelphia native.  Ironically enough, CD-R, a common label on those shiny discs we once burned mix’s on, matches Chuck’s new alias as he launches his career in music.  Now splitting his residence between Boston and Brown, he continues to work on his debut mixtape which is expected in early Spring of ’13.  No further details on the project just yet, other than we know producer Matty Trump will be involved.

Hip-Hop, Mixtapes | Cam Meekins – :) :/ :( [Mixtape]

DOWNLOAD: Cam Meekins – :) :/ :( [Mixtape]

Cam Meekins’ free album :) :/ :( is finally here. After hearing multiple tracks off the project such as “Cut Me Off” & “#FuckYoBitch”, I knew Cam was onto something different compared to his past projects. I’ve listened to the entire mixtape and it indeed has a totally different sound. In Cam’s beginning he used to make songs where he’d sing hooks over beats that had a more pop sound such as tracks from the Dancing With The Stars mixtape. Cam is now proving his lyrical abilities and still singing as well, but with a more developed sound. Going in over relatively simple beats while keeping the baseline heavy. I recommend this to anyone looking for something new.
