[AUDIO] IzztheUnknown – The Day The Earth Stood Still


[NORTH CAROLINA] Making his epic return back on NikkiSiixx.com, we have hip-hop artist IzztheUnknown with his latest single THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL. This is such a powerful track. With the topics IzztheUnknown brings up, it’s hard not to relate. Being rebellious when you feel things are going the wrong way, you just need to stand up and fight for what you believe is right.

IzztheUnknown is presenting himself like an alien from another world encouraging people to just put the middle finger up. In the hook “Fuck The System, Fuck The State You Live In“, you just feel the need to do just that. On point with the production by Jacob Øctober. Be on the lookout for more content from IzztheUnknown and stay in the loop by following him on all his social media:

[EP REVIEW] Yadda Man – Lose To Win


Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, we have hip-hop artist Yadda Man with his new EP LOSE TO WIN. The five track project brings us some old school vibes, with punchlines and overall a dope delievery by Yadda Man. The project was entirely produced by Luke White.

Here’s a bit of backstory on Yadda Man, he grew up in Cleveland, Omaha, and Chicago. Having to move around to three different cities. This gave a bit of an influence on his musical career. With his experiences, Yadda Man makes his lyrics come to life. Ever since he was young he knew the calling to becoming a hip-hop artist.

With my EP Review, I’ll be breaking down my favorite and stand out tracks of LOSE TO WIN. My picks are Say What, 15 Cents, Winning, and Triple H. Here are my thoughts:

13321864_1026375897416947_6088818784075384688_n[01. SAY WHAT] Yadda Man’s flow is on point over that boom-bap production. Sounds effortless. Yadda touches on topics of people who intend to talk more than what they know. Pretty much, it doesn’t phase him at all. He’s still going to do what he does best.

[02. 15 CENTS] The concept of this track, is Yadda Man asking a couple of questions to a shorty he wants to get to know. I feel this track could be that real summer vibes, it really comes off with the production. Also, this track is about the women who are worth it, are the ones who work hard for their own and are independent.

[04. WINNING] This track was the really stand out track on LOSE TO WIN. From the trap sound influence and fast flows, this track is a winner! Winning features Julian Thomas on the track. Both artists sound great together and what a great collaboration. I can definitely see this track being played in the club, it will fit perfectly.

[05. TRIPLE H] Yadda Man talks about the struggles of growing up and becoming a man. Regardless of how bad it gets Yadda Man makes sure to always look to the man upstairs for guidance. Sometimes you got to lose to win, is repeated throughout the hook. And a sample clip of an episode of Oprah, where she was going to have Nelson Mandela as a guest.

Recently, Yadda Man has teamed up with Music/Management & Promotional Company Rap Soul Ent. With shows and festivals booked between Texas and the Midwest, 2016 and 17 is looking really promising for the lyricist. His next show will be at the Rap Soul Music festival featuring Twista, Paul Wall & Afroman Sep 24th.

This concludes my EP Review on LOSE TO WIN, from Yadda Man. If you like the project as much as I do (considering 4/5 songs I listed), make sure to support the artist and follow him on all his social media below.

[ALBUM REVIEW] Marley Brooker – Oxys & Mamis (Deluxe Edition)

Making his return after a bit of a hiatus, hip-hop creative Marley Brooker releases his OXYS & MAMIS Album (Deluxe Edition). This is the second part of its official release, which includes seven new songs plus remixes/revisions. Embracing the trap genre for the first time, Marley Brooker embodies wavy melodies over hard-hitting bass.

A bit of background on Marley “Crookz” Brooker the founder of The Relentless Empire is a living example of the maxim “it ain’t where you’re from, it’s where you’re at”. The Miami-based musician, poet, producer and former University of Washington student has lived everywhere from the East Coast to the West Coast to the Dirty South. With family in the Bahamas and stints in Miami, New York, New Jersey, Boston and Seattle the cultural influences on the young entertainer have been varied and deep and show themselves in the flexibility and variety of his style.

OXYS & MAMIS definitely provides a unique sound with its high powered production. The sixteen track album gives you an underlining of consciousness through clever lyrics touching topics about Miami nights to the fullest. During the listen I found twelve of those tracks to be good listens but I found that six of those tracks really stood out to me. And they were The Eagle, Versace Shades II, Burn Wit’ Me (Señorita ’16), Tropicana, Fuel, and Purple Rain Part II.

[03. THE EAGLE] Over some smooth production (it kinda reminded me of some Kid Cudi). Marley Brooker expresses that whatever he’s interested in, he’s going in on what he wants. Regardless of what other people have to say, Marley Brooker is all about having a good time and experiencing Miami Night Life. During a night out Marley was able to lock down the digits. I find the hook to be extremely catchy.

[05. VERSACE SHADES II] Finding myself having this one on repeat. From Marley’s descriptive lyrics, expressive wordplay, and chill vibe. This track is actually a remix from the first part of OXYS & MAMIS. Marley talks about looking his best wherever he goes, working hard and finding his place. The female voice added on the track really gave a dash of dopeness to it.

[06. BURN WIT’ ME (SEñORITA ’16)] Marley Brooks takes us on a journey of love and lust. Even though the relationship can be rocky with arguments they find a moment where they can unwind and really enjoy the moment. And thats by lighting up one nice blunt. The melodies of the hook were inspired by Puff Daddy’s “Señorita”.

[07. TROPICANA] This track definitely provides that Miami Night Life sound. Marley Brooker talks about the different types of honeys. But he seems to like more the tropicana kind (hispanic). Explaining some of his experiences, and the things they’ll do. During the song Marley really gets melodic.

[08. FUEL] This song reminded me of a 90’s R&B with the sultry female vocals on the track, but Marley Brooks remains sincere on this track. Opening up about his feelings, mentioning someone he knew dying, and relationships.

[15. PURPLE RAIN – PART II] Marley Brooker hits it hard at the end with this heavy hitting club trap track. Getting extremely rowdy, Marley touches topics of using different drugs, listening to Prince, and real late nights in Miami, where your up to no good. The track also features artist SGAYOK.

Marley Brooker is also apart of a music group called Relentless Intent. They stand for bring awareness of issues facing everyday people in these crazy times. Making sure to check things off a list of goals in bringing society together and triumph over evil. According to Marley Brooker he explains, “There’s plenty of things going on that are unspoken that society as a whole turns a blind eye to and I feel like It’s my job to help people wake up, realize these things, and help them contribute to fixing issue’s plaguing society and humanity.” Raw. Riveting. Revolutionary. Are U Relentless?

This concludes my Album Review on Marley Brooker OXYS & MAMIS (DELUXE EDITION). I only mentioned the really stand out tracks but their were more dope tracks. The project was a good listen, make sure you light one up right before. If you’re digging OXYS & MAMIS make sure you support Marley Brooker by following all his links below.

[ALBUM REVIEW] AJB4 – Organic Growth

[CHATTANOOGA, TN] This will actually be AJB4 first official post on NikkiSiixx.com. He did make an appearance with his single I BE THAT, in a previous project review I did for Samurai Shin VS Xia-Dawn. This time we have my review on his latest album Organic Growth. But before I get into the review, lets get to know him a bit better.

Growing up with the church and traveling all over the world due to his father love for God and his strength being a chaplain in the military. In 2008 his cousin and himself started to create rap songs that showed their devotion for the church. Which later turned into something greater, the love to becoming a musician and perfecting his craft. Lets look eight years down the line, here’s where AJB4 has released six projects and he’s received radio play from various online radio stations like K107FMJamz, GospelSynergy Radio and QSJRadio.

Throughout the ten track album, AJB4 presents us with solid work. The tracks I felt that really stood out to me were Loaded, Figure It Out, Its On Me, Spam Musubi, and You Don’t Know. Here’s what I thought are Organic Growth.

[02. LOADED] I really wish AJB4 started the album with this track. It really grabs my attention. AJB4 comes loaded and locked, with God by his side he feels there’s no room for error. He fights for what he believes in. Melodic harmonies in the hook, its hard not to recite it.

[03. FIGURE IT OUT] AJB4 opens up his heart, to the one that befriended him. Even though there was something more but it ended up in the trash. Growing up and becoming a man, AJB4 knows what he wants. And won’t let anyone hurt him when it comes to love. This tracks production makes me want to move back and forth. Even feels trance-like.

[05. ITS ON ME] I find this to be my favorite track off Organic Growth. Who hasn’t experience a relationship where the other half expect perfection from you. Causing stress and unnecessary pressure in not messing up. Or for some reason everything is your fault. AJB4 expresses his lyrics with a sense of wittiness. Even when breaking down the second verse and how she flipped so fast like he never existed and blocking him out of her life. At least AJB4 admits to his messes.

AJB4 - Organic Growth BACK

[08. SPAM MUSUBI] AJB4 talks about a girl of interest, that feels could be the one for him. Meeting her online, developing a dating relationship, talking all the time, and having something he thinks is real from afar. Kinda like it’s too good to be true, but that didn’t work out. Decides to make a move on someone but later found out she was in a relationship. AJB4 is looking for someone who’s real and not fake! I really like AJB4 flow on this one.

[10. YOU DON’T KNOW] AJB4 has been through a lot of struggles. But regardless he looks up to God and here’s where he can strive for greatness. Even have a close death experience it hit him like a ton of bricks. Feeling free and going down the right path. Talking about his story, he hopes you can learn from his mistakes.

AJB4 says his main goals are to make good positive music, praise God, keep it real, and share experiences in his life.

This concludes my album review of AJB4 Organic Growth, I broke down my favorite stand out tracks. Which tracks you felt were you’re favorite? Would love to hear what you have to say, just comment below or tweet me at @NikkiSiixx #OrganicGrowth !! And make sure you support AJB4 by listening to Organic Growth on Spotify, Purchase the album, and follow him on all his social media accounts.
