[AUDIO] Dubby – Brace 4 Impact featuring Suzii

CqpAJeYUkAAcLCB.jpg-large

[PENNSYLVANIA] After releasing his highly anticipated first album HEART & HAVOC. Dubby brings his fans a big thank you with this free downloadable track BRACE 4 IMPACT. This single was originally supposed to be the fourth song on the album, but they decided not to include it since it musically didn’t fit in. But I’m glad he still released this track, anyway. BRACE 4 IMPACT features Suzii, and was produced by Diamond Style. One thing I really like about Dubby he collaborates with female singers that give a balance to the concept of the track. The track is about a relationship that didn’t work out due to the lies, back-stabbing, and assumptions. Their lifestyles made it impossible for them to reignite what was once there. What did you think about BRACE 4 IMPACT?

[Project Review] Samurai Shin VS Xia-Dawn

samurai shin vs xia-dawn


samurai shin vs xia-dawn comic artWhat a way to bring together hip-hop and comics with what Co-creator/Executive Producer Mikel.M from Toronto Canada and Producer/Artist Xia-Dawn from Miami, FL did on their collaborative mixtape called SAMURAI SHIN VS XIA-DAWN. When you get your free download of Samurai Shin VS Xia-Dawn you get two new comic strips from “Samurai Shin” Episode 1 Web Comic Book. The mixtape also features from P.Soul, Kuro Silence, Mikel.M, Tripstyle, AJB4 & Voice Over Actor “LeQan Bennett”. Music inspired by comics and anime, my favorite elements to combine on a project.

Samurai Shin is inspired from two anime shows like Samurai Champloo and Afro Samurai, with main characters Amir and Keith. Mikel.M will be writing out the comic and talented artist Ivan Earl Aguilar from the Philippines will be working on the art. With Xia-Dawn being a fan of anime and hip-hop he couldn’t miss out the opportunity to work on this project.

The seven track mixtape brings us some instrumentals and some dope tracks. With my review, I’ll be going over which ones are my favorites. They are: Brand New Day, Combat, Samurai Shin, All Flows Reach Out, and I Be That.

samurai shin vs xia dawn [BRAND NEW DAY] This track really captured my attention, reason why because if I was a lyricist or femcee I would of taken this beat and make a hit with it. Xia-Dawn executed the beat perfectly.

[COMBAT] I find this instrumental to be so motivating. It also reminds me of a Quentin Tarantino film. Seriously! You can’t tell me no. And a bit of Mortal Kombat inspiration with those “fight” and “finish him” being said throughout the track.

[SAMURAI SHIN] I really like how grimy/street style with this track, it even sounds like we’re in a cypher with Tripstyle. His flow is classic. Definitely represents the essence of 90’s hip-hop.

[ALL FLOWS REACH OUT (A.F.R.O)] To put into words how I feel about this track, it’s what I liked to call “groovy, baby”. I love the smooth vibes produced by Kuro Silence. This instrumental brings a lot of positive energy. I’ll definitely play this at a party for sure.

[I BE THAT (SAMURAI)] AJB4 takes Samurai Shin’s story to life with his track that hits topic from the comic. You gotta be careful who you’re messing with cause they can easily take your life especially if they’re a Samurai.

samurai shin vs xia dawn 3This concludes my project review on Samurai Shin VS Xia-Dawn. The 7 track mixtape really provides a fun time while still embracing hip-hop and anime. While listening to the project look at the comic strips provided. You can feel this music really coming out from the sketches. Love the art of music and in the arts.

Download: SIN – Dark Waters EP

image1


[SOUTH FLORIDA] After releasing his track Tiffany / Kiss The Ring, SIN has been getting nothing but love from NikkiSiixx readers. This track definitely built anticipation for SIN’s upcoming Dark Waters EP. Premiering exclusively through DJ.Booth.net. My favorite tracks off Dark Waters is 100MPH, Tiffany / Kiss The Ring, Shakedown, 16jabs, For The Homies, Vibe and Fork In The Road. Basically, the whole project is a favorite. SIN Photo

I wanted to fully capture the organic hip-hop feel and blend it with my own sound. [The EP] has a dark undertone, but the presence of a giant bully.” -SIN

The project rides through eight tracks. The producers who were involved were able to grasp that overall dark undertone that SIN needed to express making a triumph over his bully. Producers were: Rojas On The Beat, Nick Leon, Scottzilla, Nuez, The Pyrvmids, Anthology, and Dark Night. SIN only had one feature and that was with REKS on the Shakedown track. Dope collaboration between the two.

Screen Shot 2015-02-05 at 2.37.23 PM

Screen Shot 2015-02-05 at 2.37.23 PM

IzztheUnknown is a young artist that invokes the Golden-Age of Hip-Hop with his music. He embraces the year 1995, which is basically the introduction to his mixtape and his year of birth. Seems like he gained some type of ancestral spirits from artists like the Lords of the Underground, Public Enemy, EPMD, and GZA. His style sounds like the streets of 1990s New York. Which he sounds great over these tracks, IzztheUnknown raps over nine instrumentals from 1995 artists such as Wu-tang, Eazy E, Bone Thugs and more. My favorite tracks off 1995 are 1] Once Upon A Time 2] Ride To It 5] Back In A Dazeee & 6] No Competition. Diggin’ his flows?

Album Review: Shottie – The Blackest Rose

a0922895752_10

a0922895752_10

95Labs presents Shottie’s sophomore album The Blackest Rose. The ten track album is a journey through Shottie’s thoughts and perception of his life and the world. Shottie is a recording artist, MC, writer, and director that is currently residing in New York City. I wanted to show you guys which songs were my favorite from The Blackest Rose, it’s really a dope project and it’s definitely worth the listen.

[x1] Black Roses – Shottie mentions scenarios of how beautiful one thing can be then all of a sudden it can turn ugly like a black rose. Regarding a relationship that was “supposedly” meant to be.. but ending in a tragedy. Wants his mother’s approval, but doubts he’ll ever get it.

[x3] Sayonara You (featuring Salazar) – Love the production on this track by TeV95. The chemistry with Shottie and TeV95 really shows off both they’re talents. From sick production to amazing lyricism. It showcases through out the entire album The Blackest Rose. SAYONARA YOU also features Miami recording artist, Salazar.

[x4] Bag of Shrooms – I find this track to be fun for the fact Shottie’s delivery is non-stop and consistent. His wordplay is intense. The track also gives off a mean demeanor. You don’t want to be messing with Shottie.

1208526_505018202916172_1101520197_n
[x6] Illegally Medicated – “Can I Get A Light? I’m Jus Trying To Live My Life” If you medicate yourself with Maryjane, you can definitely relate to this track. You just wanna live your life and light one up. With the ever day stresses of life and all you want to do is unwind. Love how the song was delivered and the production is nuts!

[x7] Dream (featuring Rue Brown) – “The Homie Said I’m Gonna Be A Star, Same Day My Girl Said I Ain’t Shit” Shottie’s not sure from reality to a dream. Is his goals to high to be reached? Or will he be able to accomplish the impossible. I love the female addition to the album. With Rue Brown’s sultry voice really gives life to the track.

[x9] In The Presence – This track has to be my favorite from Shottie on The Blackest Rose. He’s story-telling is really dope on this one. So descriptive, that leads you’re imagination to become vivid. From conversations he had with his mother or things he see’s in the sky. I thought it was pretty dope that they sampled Paul Hellyer (Canadians Ex-Defence Minister) speech regarding UFO’s and aliens being real.

This concludes my album review on Shottie’s The Blackest Rose. It was a great music experience and I hope many more others take a listen. The Blackest Rose is available on Bandcamp with NAME YOUR PRICE on download or you can pay $8 for an exclusive limited edition physical copy of the project.

The Blackest Rose (Album Release Party) will be held September 25th at Sullivan Hall and will also feature art, visual projections, and live performances by Shottie, Scienze + The Ellavators, and Uptown Vernacular. Click Image Below For Tickets:

Download: Eric J – Dark Matter

dark matter


dark matterEric J is coming for the throne, and making no bones about it. I’ve been privileged to witness his growth as an artist from early on in his journey, and honestly his progression, work ethic, and development is impressive. With the release of ‘Dark Matter’ Eric comes with a renewed vigor and confidence in his stride. The South Carolina native is becoming a staple in the underground scene.

From the first few notes of the entirely self-produced mixtape, it’s obvious that Eric is coming into his own as a producer. The LSD-influenced slaps will take the listener into a different zone; his vibes are refreshing in a world flooded with run-of-the-mill rappers. His verses, lyrics, and flow have all grown by leaps and bounds in the past several months. Anyone who says they’re complete as an artist needs to take a lesson from Eric J and the Ganja Goons. Consistent growth and quality has pushed these cats into a different atmosphere; consider yourself lucky to be able to witness the metamorphosis.

If Eric J and the rest of his crew continue on their current trajectory, tangible and very real success is just over the horizon. Any normal rapper would consider their art a finished product if they reached the levels Eric J currently resides at. However, Eric isn’t satisfied, and I think he’d be the first to tell you that. The drive and hunger he possesses as an artist is insatiable. Not out for fame or riches, but in it for the purest of reasons, Eric J is a tank full of fresh air in the stalest of internet environments. Many, many props to Eric J and all of Tha Steam Squad homies on this one. I”m excited for their future as if it was my own. Keep up the good work, the future is approaching fast.

Download: K. Ali – In 13 We Trust

kali

kali

I’m a sucker for soul. A little bit of jazz, a little bit of honest artistry goes a long way in my book. My homie and Native Omen affiliate K. Ali shows he’s got both in abundance with ‘In 13 We Trust’. This tape is the followup to his debut project ‘Jetlagged’. From the first few notes of the opening track I was hooked. The jazz loops, the sublime beats, the honest lyrics; all of it had me zoned. The entire ’13’ project is produced by fellow Native Soul HAV FUN. The producer is a naturally gifted and that comes through in his slaps. The vibe that K. Ali and HAV FUN are rolling on is a good one. These two make good music, straight up.

Smooth is the buzzword for this mixtape. From the first few bars he spits on ‘Affirmative Action, to the flow and structure of the entire 13-track offering, everything about this tape is smooth. K. Ali lets himself be the focus and drive behind ’13’. There’s only one track that features other artists, and it’s very tastefully done. ‘Ash Tray’ features Eli Gumbi and Sale$, both of whom are very solid additions to the track. I think that by limited the features K. Ali shows his continuity and consistency as a rapper. He’s making a nonvocal statement about his work and the pride he takes in it.

The bold stance K. Ali takes with ‘In 13 We Trust’ is refreshing, and honestly, necessary in this age of internet overflux. He’s aggressive in his statements, both personal and politically. K. Ali is proving to his listeners that he’s more than a smooth voice that can rhyme. He’s an opinionated young mind with a very vocal platform. He’s growing by the release, and his progression is a joy to watch. K. Ali is coming for the throat of the bogus rappers, turning the game on it’s head.

Willie J. Jr. Featuring Tripz Traxxx- The Sickness (Download/Listen)

Sickness_FixedA

Sickness_FixedA

While Halloween is quite some time away, we’re here with a scary ode to being sick. Chicago rapper Willie J. Jr. drops off The Sickness. Featuring Tripz Traxxx, these two rappers trade frightening bars over this super trippy beat. There seems to be a Hopsin and Tech N9ne vibe while zoning off to this one. When you want to let someone know just how sick you are, this is definitely the perfect theme song.

Download: Sincerely Yours featuring Neak & Slot-A, “Truly Understand Me”

Truly Understand Me

While musical unity seems apparent in various areas of the country, I must say I am growing to appreciate a movement that’s forming in the midwest. Chicago and its surrounding areas are buzzing with extremely dope artists and seldom do these folks get the shine they most definitely deserve. Just the other day, I tweeted my dudes Neak and Slot-A telling them that I really liked a new record they sent me. But there was a new voice, that I didn’t recognize. Allow me to introduce Sincerely Yours.

Hailing from Oak Park, IL, Sincerely Yours dropped off this crazy statement track featuring my aforementioned dynamic homie duo, Neak and Slot-A. Neak rocks the hook then laces us with the first verse, setting the tone of the story. Sincerely Yours, takes it to the next level, then Slot-A, who also produced the track, comes in with the finale. They simply hope to be truly understood. I’m sure we all feel like that sometimes.

Turn the volume up, and let this ring off. Warning, immediate two stepping may take place.

Want more where this came from? Head on over to our good friends at DJBooth.net to download Sincerely Yours’ latest effort, the self-titled, Sincerely Yours.

Download: King Myers featuring Fred The Godson- We Gon’ Party

WE GON PARTY ARTWORK

Long Island newcomer, King Myers enlists the assistance of Fred The Godson for this party anthem, We Gon’ Party. This gives me a vibe that reminds me of a back in the day Fabolous. This club ready smash should definitely be in rotation at house parties, if not small clubs in the Long Island/NYC area. I’ll sum up what they talk about, popping bottles, bagging models and partying. What is there not to love? And we have the clean version, pshhhh. King Myers is letting us know he’s here to party, and the Godson is coming with him. We can only hope a visual is in the works for this one. Press play, add this to the iPod and make sure you blast this on the way to the next party. Turn up.

Download: Anthology – Soul Snatcher

anthology

The South Florida producer Anthology has been doing his thing lately. He recently blessed us with a ten track projectanthology titled Soul Snatcher. Anthology, like so many talented producers do, effects the listener on some deep shit without the use of lyrics or wordplay.  He does, however, have a couple vocal features on two of the tracks. “Give Him a Mask” really had me vibing. The open, bass driven beat underneath the raw wordplay painted a dark picture. One of my favorite tracks on the tape. Oh, and this cat has a vicious sample game; you can tell he put in the work. I recommend taking advantage of the free download, the replayability is higher than I currently am. Soul Snatcher is a solid project from beginning to end, good work on the part of The Anthology.
