[BROCKTON, MASSACHUSETTS] Mega Trife releases another single off of his fourth studio album Gold Ain’t Found Above Ground, called FEELIN’ U. This song definitely took me on a loop. How descriptive Mega Trife’s lyrics puts me in the vision of his song. Initially the song gives me a vibe that this song is meant only for the ladies. Trife gets intimate with a woman he found irresistible. At the end of a track you get an unexpected surprise with a twist. FEELIN’ U is meant for the grown and sexy, produced by KHRYSIS.

[BROCKTON, MA] Making music gives the lyricist a voice. When coming up hip-hop artist DKO feels the lack of recognition, he wants to demonstrate why that’s a mistake. Releasing his HOMAGE visual, he speaks on respect, reverence and admiration for the past and present vets who have influenced him as an emcee and an entrepreneur. With production from Chance Mccullough and a visual shot by Night Watch Films. DKO proves his diverse and is able to portray his emotions vividly through his lyrics and content. HOMAGE is set to be on his Product of the Hood project.
[BROCKTON, MA] Darius Heywood is back on NikkiSiixx with his latest track ROYALTIES. You’re going to think this track is so dope because it has a catchy, bouncy, laid-back vibe, while Darius Heywood stays honest with what he has to say. ROYALTIES track is inspired by how close he is with his homies, but regardless how close they are. A woman can easily come in between friendships. Listen to the track and you hear what extents Darius will go through. You can find this track on Darius Heywood’s upcoming EP the Black Diamond Project. Darius also gave a new sound to his music, he added auto-tune for his hook and it sounds dope!
"Royalties" is about people and experiences , for better or worse, that build your character and in turn will live for eternity.

[BROCKTON, MA] Darius Heywood bring us his follow up single with SHIT AIN’T CHANGE MUCH. This smooth, heavy bass track was produced by YS. Both are Massachusetts native. Darius Heywood brings us a cocky/brash tone that he carries through out the song. He encounters us with witty punchlines. “I been in this shit, flipping sentences, mama daddy doing sentences, teachers couldn’t make no sense of this, how the hell he get the recognition, patience was my biggest nemesis..” I can’t help to mention this catchy ass hook Darius came up with. But you gotta hear it for yourself when you press play! Last time Darius Heywood was featured on NikkiSiixx.com it was with his track PAY IN GOLD.

Fresh off the presses!! It’s Mega Trife’s Fourth Studio Album Gold Ain’t Found Above Ground, debuting sixteen tracks inspired by the Brockton, Massachusetts Native. If you’re a fan of the sound of the Golden Era of Hip-Hop, you have to get this album! Mega Trife embraces the culture. From the choices of which producers he worked with, to his flow and style of his raps. Mega has possibly one of the dopest projects I’ve heard this summer. Producers range from underground hip-hop’s most elite such as Statik Selektah, Khrysis, Rashid Hadee (Little Brother’s ‘Dreams’), and King Midas from Houston collective H.I.S.D. Not to forget Nonsense who’s been a long time producer from previous projects with Mega Trife.
When reviewing albums on NikkiSiixx.com I like to concentrate on my favorite tracks on the album. But for Gold Ain’t Found Above Ground, they’re were a lot of favorites but below you’ll see which ones really stood out to me.
AS MUCH AS I DO [PRODUCED BY: NAZO DA BEATSMITH] was the first official single and visual off the Gold Ain’t Found Above Ground. Mega Trife in his music video takes us to his city of Boston. Chilling with a group of his closest affiliates. They show him support on the rooftop while Trife is slaying his lyrics. Really like how the visual embodies that throwback Golden Era style. Which is really well represented in the overall sound of this album.
THE GATHERING [PRODUCED BY: Statik Selektah] One thing that surprised me with this track, was how mellow temple it was. His featured artist Andre Depriest on the hook really changes up the vibe, even gives it a bit of R&B flavor. “I don’t want to be in the place, everyday it gets harder to survive” In the production of the track there’s a soft flute playing in the background and it reminds me of the Final Fantasy RPG games. That mystical feeling to the track. Mega Trife discusses some hard times growing up, but it shows how strong he is being able to survive.
GOLDEN TOUCH [PRODUCED BY: KING MIDAS] “Can’t Go Back I Never Left What The Fuck?” I just find this hook to be so catchy! It’s kinda reminds me of how people reference to bringing back hip-hop. Hip-Hop’s there, you just really gotta look for it. I really like how Mega Trife respects the culture by bringing light to the underground scene. Especially when naming his album Gold Ain’t Found Above Ground. Think about it… But check it at the end of the track you hear Mega Trife having a conversation with a woman. In this phone call the woman is letting Trife know that even though other guys are trying to get her attention but the only person on her mind & heart is him. That conversation sets up the following song called THE GROUPIES.
BEAUTIFUL WEATHER [PRODUCED BY: RASHID HADEE] How can you not love this song? This track is filled with positivity about seeing the best things out of any situation whether good or bad. Really… this song should be played everywhere. Mega Trife just wishes the best for anyone. Perfect for the summer time.
FEELIN’ U [PRODUCED BY: KHRYSIS] This song definitely took me on a loop. How descriptive Mega Trife’s lyrics puts me in the vision of his song. Initially the song gives me a vibe that this song is meant only for the ladies. Trife gets intimate with a woman he found irresistible. At the end of a track you get an unexpected surprise with a twist.
ZONES [PRODUCED BY: NONSENSE] This also is a great track that is inspired by Golden Hip-Hop. I just love the samples used like Biggie Smalls saying It Was All A Dream I Used To Read Word Up Magazine, and of course the Dj scratches. In this track Mega Trife verses explains different dreams that feels so real. From an extraterrestrial experience to about almost kissing underwater goddesses.
SPACE TRAVELIN’ [PRODUCED BY: PHIL THE PAIN] – Second single (and visual) off the the Gold Ain’t Found Above Ground. This track embodies how lyrical Mega Trife can be. As well as him speaking about the sonic journey he puts us through in this space-time continuum song. I can definitely vibe out to this one. This one is for the smokers and the one’s who are enlightened. Just love the space theme to the track as well with the music video. The graphics are so unique, I can’t help but keep pressing play as soon as it’s over. Super Fun Track.
By the end of the album, you feel like you’re withdrawing from this epic journey your mind just took. I liked a majority of the tracks on Gold Ain’t Found Above Ground. I really wanted to rate this project. I decided to do a percentage system. Out of how many songs I like out of the project. And I was able to obtain an approval percentage rate of 81.25% out of 100%!!
Don’t miss out with what Mega Trife has to offer when it comes to quality music.

[BROCKTON, MA] Darius Heywood presents us his latest track called PAY IN GOLD. This track will be featured on his upcoming EP Black Diamond Project, it’s tentatively set to be release later this Fall/ Early Winter 2015. One thing I have to mention about this track, Darius sounds clear, tone on point with the beat, this track is world ready. Darius Heywood sounds super confident, especially in the hook “You Better Pay My Price In Gold“. I can catch myself bumpin’ this track in my car, riding around getting errands done. PAY IN GOLD has a real dope kick and bounce that gives it a wavy vibe that pockets well with the flow and hook. Production brought to you by Tucson Arizona producer R E T R O 1.

Jay West of Brockton, MA started the first quarter of 2013 by releasing “The Governor EP”. This 7 song EP starts off with a track titled the “The Inauguration” which sets the mood for the rest of the EP by Mr. West saying “Mayor with his bitch, naw homie I’m the governor” on the hook of the song. After you start to get into the groove, the post-inauguration speech celebration starts with “I Run This” on which Jay West explains why he runs not only the city but the entire state of Massachusetts.
The third track is “Bout That” featuring Romestar on which they spit about creating genuine music that they’re willing to place a bet on. The next joint “Slacking” featuring J. Hughes which is a song about getting your business together an artist, something every artist should be able to relate to but not many can. West lightens the mood some by making the fifth song “3 Day Weekend” which is a song that you can play while pre-gaming to hit the club. “3 Day Weekend” features Who But Chryst and they get you in the mood to have a great weekend.
Mr. West goes deeper on “Hold On” which covers the topic of a love on the verge of that still has a slight chance of hope. The Governor EP ends on as high of a note as it started with the track “For The City, For The State” which features Jay Moore of Buffalo, NY and Cardiye of Atlanta, GA. This track captures the reason why artists work so hard and shows that it’s the same thing from three different hip-hop markets. Overall the EP is nice and I recommend you give it a listen.
