New Music: Xali – FuckWitDaGawd

Recently, SoFloHipHop Artist Xali released this track called FUCKWITDAGAWD. This track unexpectedly dropped and caused ruckus. FUCKWITDAGAWD is the follow-up from his single “Still“. Xali brings the essence of old school boom-bap with a modern hip-hop production from Illlnstramentals. This will be included in the prelude to Xali’s upcoming album which is currently in the works. We can’t wait! From his previous project “The American House Slave” by the way, I still play it till this date. But anywho, back to FUCKWITDAGAWD. Xali touches subjects from hitting your lows, embracing yourself, and even touches topics of suicide. It can get deep for anyone dealing with life. Ranging from death, betrayal, and realization. Why wouldn’t you find this relevant. I’ve dealt with all of those subjects that were mentioned, so I completely feel for Xali. Life can be fucked up at times but you gotta get through it.

In #FuckWitTheGawd song you hear me address certain things that all derive from true experiences and thoughts, to give people a small insight of who I am on a daily. To conclude with a real question (non rhetorical) Do you want to fuxk with the gawd… Whether that be me or yourself.. Do you wanna tap into your source… The Consciousness We Fell From. -Xali

Stayed tuned for the latest from Xali from the SoFloHipHop you gotta follow him on his social media links: TWITTERINSTAGRAM


Tribute: Aaliyah (1979 – 2001)

Aaliyah was an R&B & Hip-Hop Singer/Actress. Today makes 10 years of Aaliyah’s death, when her airplane crashes after Rock The Boat video shoot in the Bahamas. What happened was that they initially had a flight scheduled for the following day, but with filming finished early, Aaliyah and her entourage were eager to return to the United States and made the decision to leave immediately. The designated airplane was smaller than the Cessna 404 in which they had originally flown. Nevertheless, the whole party and all of the equipment were accommodated on board. As a result, when the aircraft attempted to depart, it was over its maximum takeoff weight by 700 pounds and was carrying one more passenger than it was certified to. The plane crashed shortly after takeoff, about 200 feet from the runway. Aaliyah and the eight others on board, were killed.

I am a fan of Aaliyah. I remember when I was 13 years old, I would watch all her videos, learn her lyrics, and try to dance just like her. I remember hearing the news on MTV of this tragic crash, I couldn’t believe it. When you watch the video you are in shock of how angelic Aaliyah looks, and especially at the end of the video it seems like she is swimming up to the heavens. Breath-taking.


Tribute: Amy Winehouse (1983-2011)

Amy Winehouse was a talented singer but was misguided with her battle against drugs and alcohol abuse. She had a distinctive voice and beehive hairstyle. I was a fan especially Back To Black. Winehouse’s debut album Frank” was released in 2003 and went triple platinum in Britain. The Grammy award-winning soul singer was found dead in her London apartment today, she was only 27. The cause of death is still unknown. Once I found out I was in shock. I was more disappointed than anything. As a fan of her music I was hoping she was going to change her ways and finally get her life together. Since the cause of death is still unknown I don’t want to assume anything.
