Let me start off by saying I’ve been waiting to see the video for this song for some time. This was originally featured on Hi-Rez’s latest project “Lost Time” and was the standout track in my opinion. It features one of my favorite and most talented upcoming artists in my opinion, Kinetics. This song has a very deep, somber feeling as does most of the project it was featured on. As for the video, it was shot by Ben Foley over at Swaggernaut Productions and fits the song well, from the story line to the black and white scenes. Check out the video and grab Rez’s “Lost Time” here.

Hip-Hop, Videos | Accent — Everybody’s Crazy (feat. Kinetics) [Music Video Premiere]

Posted by on February 28, 2013

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to you that I love introspective hip-hop—and man does this new Accent track take the cake. Amidst a genre primarily concerned with braggadocio and glorified false personas, Accent utilizes his singing skills to evoke this powerful jam about “accepting the imperfections that define us, and being proud of them.” The Kid Vision-produced single from his Sight & Sound EP features a verse from frequent collaborator Kinetics—whose internal rhyme-schemes become more impressive by the song—and impressive visuals courtesy of Hickory that highlight the song’s meaning and personal nature, which Accent eloquently described for us:

“The song recognizes that every human has their own unique qualities, yet it acknowledges that those differences between us are what make all of us the same; everyone struggles with their own experiences and identities. The sources of my own pain are very literally expressed here and every word is carefully recited making for a clear projection of the message. I reference my own issues regarding bi-raciality, growing up without a father and being almost obsessed with what I loved about my childhood but I also touch on my capacity for love and the purpose I have for existing. While “Everybody’s Crazy” comes from a sad place in my heart it encourages people to transform the negativity in their histories into a beautiful representation of the strength they have developed from it.”



Hip-Hop | Accent — Sight & Sound EP (Produced by Kid Vision)

Posted by on December 12, 2012

Step into the mind of Accent, where stories take the form of tantalizing rhythms, flows, and cadences. Where a simple emotion is invoked through intricately-crafted lyrics, exhibiting strong language skills through alliteration and the most advanced rhyme-schemes you’ve heard from anyone this year. Rarely does an artist with this level of talent arise, and when they do — it feels like it’s only days before they ascend into hip-hop royalty. Tonight we are proud to sponsor Accent’s latest EP, Sight & Sound, a collaboration with producer Kid Vision — an EP that sits under twenty minutes in length, but will take months to fully digest. Accent’s pure skill as an emcee is clearly evident here, but what is most amazing is how even when rhyming repetitiously, the message remains so flawless and detailed. Accent is a poet and storyteller, no question, yet he has the kind of flow that excites listeners who can’t even begin to comprehend the content. He’s a rapper’s rapper in the truest sense — one who embodies such a strong devotion to the music he creates, and has a real sense of integrity about his content. This phenomenal EP includes collaborations with Chyna Griffin (Faith Evans’ daughter), as well as two with Kinetics, whom he recorded alongside this summer—as well as Mike Stud, Missy Modell, and others. Enjoy this tape’s ingenuity and genuine songwriting, and download below.

Hip-Hop, Videos | Accent — X-Men & Street Fighter Verses [Video]

Posted by on November 4, 2012

Every once in awhile I come across an emcee who is truly deserving of that title — who is creating art, and knows the difference between hip-hop and the glorified pop rap of syndicated radio. Too many prospective artists lack the mastery of lyricism, cadence, and rhythm to sustain a listener’s ears for a full track, let alone an entire project. To this issue, however, there are a handful of antidotes, and Accent is one of them. Known as the “best poet rapping,” Accent has garnered FNT fame through collaborations with Kinetics, Mike Stud, and Radical Something, and seeks to set a new standard for hip-hop. In preparation for his upcoming Sight & Sound mixtape, here’s a video of him spitting a few dazzling verses about X-Men and Street Fighter that — even as acapellas — are more compelling than most rappers can manage to sound on top-shelf beats. Check it out below and stay connected with him as he prepares his new project for release.

Hip-Hop | Kinetics & One Love – Still Dreamin’ Remix (Feat. Jadakiss & Termanology)

Posted by on September 28, 2012

It’s been a long time coming for Kinetics & One Love, but with their latest album, You Are Not Alone, they are finally starting to get some of the respect they deserve. Here lies the proof: not only did they hit number eight on the iTunes hip-hop charts, but over the summer Kinetics rapped alongside (and consistently out-spit) RA the Rugged Man, Remedy from Wu-Tang Killa Bees, Unknown Prophets, Termanology, Nitty Scott MC, and now Jadakiss! This remix adds a strong Jada feature to a song already stacked with lyrical power, style, and precision — over one of One Love’s most fervent beats to date. Don’t forget to cop the album if you haven’t already, and check back for when they drop the video to “Sign Language” featuring Wynter Gordon on Thursday!
