EP Review: RealProperLike – Signs


realproperlike[MIAMI, FLORIDA] A poet expressing himself through his music, RealProperLike exhibits his five track EP signs as a form of creativity inspired by the South Florida community. With signs in was created by the spirit of Art Basel 2015. According to RealProperLike “The concept of “signs” is to creatively express a journey of thoughts ranging from acceptance, dropping jewels, art, life, and love as only I can paint it”. I’ll be reviewing my favorite tracks off RealProperLike’s signs EP and what is his lyrical art exhibit trying to display.

INFORMATION – RealProperLike is a philosopher and goes in-depth with information he wants to provide you. He even talks about being more grateful to everything in your life. And even sneaks in a history lesson in there. The way RealProperLike breaks it down you can image it in your mind. Very descriptive just like a story teller.

ART – One thing I really like about this track is the theatrical flow RealProperLike has when he’s reciting his lyrics. The Beat is dope as hell, it was executive produced by realproperlike, custom made @custom60625, serious beats @seriousbeats, and by the audio genius [kr]ypton @mrbandason. Recorded, mixed, and mastered at @fsstudiomiami/ @kingpinstation. This has to be my favorite track off the signs EP.

SLAVE – You gotta bob your head to this one. RealProperLike expresses the struggles of Black Lives Matter. When the beat drops it really makes your concentrate on his poetic flows. Embracing his roots and feeling liberated that him and his people are strong and they are no one’s property.

signs back cover

“A full time worker – part time poet/part time philosopher.
Who am I? A different type of thinker, a big kid with an old soul”. – RealProperLike

Signs is a proper prelude to further creativity, critique, and conversation as any art exhibit should provide. RealProperLike paints the picture, can you see it? Be on the lookout for more content from RealProperLike by following him on social media:

Video: The Renaissance Nerds x @OfficialNehs “Live Paint” at @WorldofComics

[ORLANDO, FLORIDA] Instagram is a place to find the most creative. I think it’s been two years already I’ve been a fan on N.E.H.S. His artwork is inspired by comics, heroes, villains, and some pretty dope designs. “N.E.H.S.” ultimately stands for…” No Eyes Have Seen” and this acronym was derived from the scripture 1 Corinthians 2:19 in the Holy Bible. N.E.H.S. delves in many different avenues of artwork that spans from very rugged imagery of political, social, and religious issues all the way to his commercial side. He has also done exhibitions at comic conventions around the nation including Orlando’s MegaCon all the way to Los Angeles for Stan Lee’s Comikaze Convention. He was also a P.O.W. Affiliated artists and was featured artist on Stan Lee’s POW Entertainment website.. You can find portraits, iPhone Cases, posters, pillows, t-shirts, and stickers on his RedBubble Online Store or to purchase artwork from his online store OfficialNehs.com. I couldn’t help myself and I got myself the Poison Ivy iPhone6 Plus Snap Case. poison ivy nikkisiixx nehs
Official NEHS collaborated with The Renaissance Nerds to bring you LIVE PAINT at World of Comics (Kissimmee, Florida). LIVE PAINT will be a series of extraordinary videos showcasing the very diverse nature of their group, gifts, and affiliations. Watch artists @bombbaycustoms, @larryhimself, & @officialnehs collaborate on LIVE PAINT. The way they came up with the concept of the painting was picking random characters and actions out of a hat in order to come up with the theme. They chose GIANT ROBOT – GET OVER HERE – MICKEY MOUSE. This is going to be interesting. See what the boys came up with and don’t forget to follow them on social media. They have a pretty funny infomercial in the middle of the video.

Here are some of my favorites from @OfficialNehs feed on Instagram:

#SmaktastikReviews: Art Morera – “Small World” [Music Video]

I got places to go. People to see and a lot of ideas. If that isn’t what you say every morning when you wake up, then you’re probably not serious or passionate about your craft and profession. First things first (I cant respect you if whenever you hear that phrase you don’t finish it with “I poppa freaks all the honies” in your head ), welcome back to the hottest blog on the net! It’s your host for this post, Pedro with some more music for you fiends. I see you droolin’!

Art Morera’s been releasing alot of new content as of late. He dropped his latest music video for “Small World” from the “Morera EP” and I gatta’ say I was impressed. Not to say that his previous material was bad because I heard a lot of Morera’s music and I vibe to all. This one though? ?? This one?? This one’s up there for me with “98 green 328i” (Check that record out too..fire). Morera always brings you that perfect blend of mood music and that underground sound we love.

A lot of people have been telling me Morera sounds like Drake.

Eeeeeeeeh..

Maybe, if you’ve never really listened to Art Morera or Drake. Conceptually and musically Art Morera is unique with his own style and contributions. That fact definitely presents itself here in this Small World record. The song shows us just how small this world could be, especially to a person with lots of dreams and aspirations. There’s never enough time in a day for an artist who would want nothing more than to just materialize all of his/her thoughts and ideas right there and then. For someone who has places to go, people to see, things to do and a lot of ideas, of course the world will feel like the smallest place ever.

This video though???  Pretty tight. The video shows us a taste of Morera’s world.  The visuals and the video concept were on point. I like the whole “watching 3-4 music videos at once” theme. It adds to the replay value of the video itself. Kimber Vasquez did a great job here portraying Miami as relevant to Art Morera.  A lot of the times I see videos that could be great but the music video treatment doesn’t fit the tone of the record at all. I lie to you not I’ve seen a video where the song is about being in love with a girl with a BPM of like 50 or 60 (just to give you some perspective. That’s reeeeal slow) and the video had these insane,  super quick transitions where the guy was getting wasted at a house party.

stephenAfacepalm

That wasn’t the case here. There are a lot of mellow tones used which fit the mood of the song. It’s relatable to everyone. We all have our own world. Mr. Nixon did his thang’ too on this beat. His mixture of jazz with these drum patterns made it easy for anyone to just lay back and vibe to this record. There’s so much to like here. Whether it be Art Morera’s delivery, Kimber Vasquez’s cinematography, Mr. Nixon’s production or most likely all three, you’re going to really appreciate what’s going on right here. So check this out but I gatta’ run son! I got places to go, people to see, things to do and a lot of ideasssss!

NikkiSiixx Artwork: Lego Joker ‘s Last Laugh

I’m a huge fan of The Batman series. And for some strange reason I keep creating art work involving The Joker. My latest piece is titled Lego Joker ‘s Last Laugh. Finally The Joker was able to accomplish the unthinkable and poison Batman & Robin with his infamous laughing gas.


[x] First off I free hand the sketch. First I started with The Joker then out of no where I decided to add Batman & Robin into the bunch. Felt The Joker was a little bit too lonely on the canvas.


[x] Next off I painted the light colors, once dried I started with the dark colors. Luckily I had all the colors needed.


[x] Didn’t know where I was going with this but I decided to add the backdrop with the green mist from The Laughing Gas. Started it light.


[x] I added a darker green color to give a mist feel when you look to The Jokers right hand there’s the green mist overlapping it.


[x] My favorite part! The outlining. I use a thin point fabric paint to create the lining. Also when it dries up it gives a 3D feel to it. Check out the detailing on Batman & Robin.


[x] Joker’s last laugh won’t be complete until I added the HA HA HA everywhere. It’s everywhere because they can’t control their laughter. It’s unstoppable.

If you’re interested in purchasing Lego Joker’s Last Laugh hit me up on Twitter @NikkiSiixx
