EP Review: RealProperLike – Signs

signs front cover realproperlike


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.

“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:

Ep Review: Chad Michael – Rain

chad michael rain ep


Chad Michael Rain EP[LOS ANGELES] Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, the upcoming Arizona native emcee/singer Chad Michael has released his EP Rain. The six track collection of songs portray a compelling story-line from a man pursing his dreams. During 2014-2015, Chad Michael went to college and moved to Southern California to make a career in music.

Going through the experiences he endured and lesson’s learned, Chad Michael wanted to express this on the Rain EP. All produced by Oregon Producer Emotion Beats. They were able to work together and really give the feel of rain fall, because of the records up and downs. Throughout the 25 minute journey, how can you not relate to Chad Michael. My favorite tracks of the Rain Ep are Evolution, Different, Weekend Love, and Rain. Here’s what I thought about my favorite tracks:

EVOLUTION is a track that shows off Chad Michael’s verbal capabilities! By showing us how fast and creative his lyricism can be. Considering this is the first track off the EP and the first song I hear from Chad Michael, this is definitely a great introduction. He lets the listener know the bullshit he’s been through and what he’s doing to prevail in his music career. Dope flow!

DIFFERENT is a track where Chad Michael expresses his time growing up in Arizona and making the big move to California. Retouching his roots Chad realizes things change and things will become different. Visual Directors Danny Gauthier and Chad M. Arechiga bring Chad Michael’s music video to his first single DIFFERENT.

WEEKEND LOVE here’s a track where Chad Michael becomes a hopeless romantic. When needing love you just have to take it slow or do what just feels right. But due to his career and the long distance, the commitment just doesn’t feel right. With what the entertainment industry is trying to show the artist, that the most important thing is getting money and fucking bitches. Messes with the mind, but not the heart.

RAIN I find this track to be very poetic with a heavy introspective perspective. With the simple production, it really makes you concentrate with what Chad Michael’s had to say. The twenty-four year old artist who has potential in making his mark in the hip-hop scene. RAIN also shows Chad’s melodic and soulful side to his music.

Chad uses ‘Rain’ as an opportunity to continue to explore and refine his burgeoning mixture of sounds. Whether crooning softly to an old flame or attempting to navigate the difficulty of societal pressures, the young artist’s intelligence, raw ability, and passion shine

With the beginning of the year underway, Chad Michael is expected to have collaborations with established artists and some new music videos as well! Be on the lookout for more content and take a listen to the Rain Ep.

Download: Latrell James – TWELVE

Artowrk


Last thing we have from Boston Rapper Latrell James was his music video for THE BUTTON. Which is also on his current project entitled Twelve. My favorite tracks off of Latrell James Twelve are Beautiful Day, Distance, Flying Nimbus, The Button, On My Own, and Candles. Twelve represents Latrell’s life from age 12 to 24. Dealing with changes and growing on his journey from adolescence to adulthood. The project was self-produced alongside his brother Tedd Boyd. Great overall production.

Check out the visual for his single ON MY OWN. Directed by Downlow Productions. ON MY OWN explains a point in Latrell’s life where he felt he needed to remove certain people that were preventing him from earning success. The music video you’re able to sense Latrell on his own and keeping focus on his lyrics.

Sometimes it can take a lifetime of trials and tribulations for a person realize their true aspirations. For me, the maturation of my artistic journey can be experienced in a span of twelve years. – Latrell James

While Latrell James continues to work hard in accomplishing his dreams in becoming an established artist, we just have to wait and see what he has next.

Download: Kaso – Back To The Future Lost in Time Mixtape

Back to future

Back to future

Indy C.T. Hip-Hop Artist Kaso released his mixtape Back To The Future – Lost in Time. via Datpiff. I find the sixteen track project was a great introduction to Kaso, The Artist. First time listening and I gotta say “very dope!” Production is on point and Kaso’s presence on the mixtape stays strong through the entire journey back to the future.

My favorite tracks off Back To The Future – Lost in Time are Blunt Ride (Produced By Talen Ted), TimeLess (Produced By Talen Ted), Swiss Percission (Produced By AdoTheGod), Gotta Hustle (Produced By AdotheGod), Isolation (Produced By AndreOnBeat), Request Line (Produced By Talen Ted), Favorite Girl (Produced By RmbJustize), and Momentum Shift (Produced By AndreOnBeat).

The concept of the project places Kaso in his car after the repair shop and noticed something was different on his radio, upon twisting the dial into which he thought would adjust the stations on his newly acquired “Satellite radio system” he was launched into a journey through sound and time. This concept portrays perfectly through the mixtape.

My goal for Back To The Future – Lost in Time mixtape was to use music to give an experience similar to on felt at a movie screening, through suspense, sadness, happiness and many other feelings on the spectrum of emotion. -KASO
