Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, we have hip-hop artists BreeZie & Phranchize with the first visual for their single COULDN’T WAIT featuring Philly’s own Dubby of Team Loko. The track becomes a feel-good anthem expressing getting through their struggles and enjoying life to the fullest. From the choices of locations of the video, it emphasizes the “from death to life” message and even “from struggle to success”. I find it to be more like “dealing with bad usually means something better will come along”. Visuals brought to you by Hued Productions. You can find COULDN’T WAIT on BreeZie & Phranchize EP entitled MixedTape. If you’re diggin the vibes on this one make sure you let em’ know.

Miami’s own Jeff Stones brings another smooth jam to our speakers with his new track “City Lights” One thing you can always expect from a Jeff Stones track is honesty, as such is the case in “City lights”. The verses offer a controlled aggression oozing confidence while the chorus reminds you that that he is capable of drooping a smooth harmony. Listening to “City Lights” takes you through a ride of his environment at night. He is reflecting on the days past with eyes on the days to come. His combination of flow and harmony along with his southern tone is a Big Krit and Kirko Bangs combination that any Hip-Hop fan can enjoy and vibe too. Jeff Stones has been making the airwaves on online radio stations and underground radio stations and with tracks like “City Lights”, it is not hard to see why.”City Lights” will be featured on his debut EP title “No Regrets” is due in Fall 2015.

SIPPIN TEA is a popular reference of Kermit the Frog’s MEME of him sipping tea and looking in the other direction. It says But That’s None Of My Own Business. I feel that inspired the title to this song and also the attitude. SEYI see’s that if you’re not putting in work, his going to work even harder.

[HARLEM, NEW YORK] Charlie Domino drops his latest single ADDICTED TO LIFE, off of his upcoming Domino3ffect mixtape. One thing I really like about the track is the production. Since it’s so mellow, Charlie Domino takes it easy and expresses himself with his verses. Catchy Hook: We’re Addicted To Life… That Kinda Life That Made That Man Cheat On His Wife, That Kinda Life That Everything Got A Fucking Price, That Kinda Life Where People Never Think Twice…” I feel this kind of lifestyle wouldn’t make you completely satisfied because of the stress you have to endure with the consequences of all three. I’m in love with the sample used in the middle of the track. I feel that if everyone was rich off life than everyone would live a happier one. Apart of the sample says “Possessions make you rich? I don’t have that type of richness, my richness is life forever“. Be on the look out this [FREESTYLE FRIDAY], where we got another dope freestyle by Charlie Domino.

One thing I really like about Case Arnold’s music is that it always resembles that true sound of hip-hop. Besides his choice of production, he has a keen sense to his flow. He gets mean in this one, for sure. Naming his track after actor Shia LeBeouf, Case Arnold found inspiration from him when he released his Motivational Speech Video.
