BEAT ALERT!! We got this outstanding beat produced by Strate Vibes. The beat is entitled LATE NIGHTS and it feels perfect for them late nights. Especially like one like tonight. The chill ambiance relaxes you, and you can’t help but vibe out this one. Strate Vibes collaborates with TLBEATS.COM. I really like the visual for this beat, simple Moon background, with a nice digital clock counting up till the beat is over. I wish it was a bit longer, but you can always loop it. Shoutout to this dope beat from Strate Vibes and make sure you stayed tuned for amazing production from TL BEATS.

[MEAL TICKET] One thing I really like about this beat, is giving me the sense of old school O-Town vibes. Southern hospitality at it’s finest. I can see the likes of Curren$y rapping to this. This beat definitely has some good vibrations on this.
[TWO FORTY-ONE AM] This beat for some reason reminds me of the Dave Chapelle show. When he’ll walk out on stage… The beat provides those night time vibes, I can see Wiz Khalifa rapping to this one. I really like the sound of flute, gives it a bit of foreign style to it.
[WEAKEST LINK] This beat comes with the heavy bass and soft tones. It’s a beat thats bit on the slow paced. I found it hard to pick up who would fit great with this beat, but that doesn’t mean this beat wouldn’t fit anyone.
Committed to Consistency is available for download at www.scoutveritybeats.com/freebeattape. This concludes my review on Scott Verity’s Committed to Consistency Beat Tape. What would be your favorite beat off this beat tape? For me, my favorite has to be MEAL TICKET.

Even though this project was released back March 2015 I feel like you need to download it like right now! Why because Alex Wiley presents us with his One Singular Flame Emoji EP which presents us trance like flows over psychedelic/drum & bass production. It was pretty dope how Wiley released his project directly to his fans who were following him on twitter. They were able to get the first listen. One Singular Flame Emoji EP is definitely on another level.. Favorite tracks off the EP are: Whip, Solo, Spark Something, Right Right featuring Kembe X, Ready, and Top of The World. We had featured Right Right on NikkiSiixx.com view what I thought out about the track review. Wiley was working on a proper follow-up to his Village Party. He was under major stress because he was focusing heavily on concepts, themes, and the pressures associated with following up a critically & fan approved project. He was able to devote 30 days Alex Wiley was making fun songs that reminded him about what he enjoyed most about rap. Currently Alex Wiley is closing up on his new LP. Stay in the loop with Alex Wiley by following him on his social media links below, you never know what to expect.
This has to be one of the cleverest way to incorporate 80’s Pop Film Culture with really dope CGI graphics! KUNG FURY brought to you by Laser Unicorn, a production by David Sandberg. The film was crowdfunded through Kickstarter with pledges reaching US $630,019. I seriously can’t wait for this! The story takes us to Miami-Dade Police Department with detective and martial artist Kung Fury. He’s able to time travel from the 1980s to World War II to kill Adolf Hitler, a.k.a. “Kung Führer”. An error in the time machine sends him further back to the Viking Age…. will Kung Fury be able to avenge his friends death? On the 22nd to 29th of May, Director David Sandberg is set to release the 30 minute film online. You wanna know what’s even more intense? How about Singer/Baywatcher David Hasselhoff has created the official theme song called “True Survivor”. You have to watch this after you watch the official trailer for Kung Fury. The song and music video really captures the essence of 80’s music and style. I’ve played True Survivor at least 5 times, I find it to be super catchy!
Check out the latest visual from Florida artist Lazare St. James with 90s Shit. Lazare definitely brought us back in time with this one. The visual has an effect of an old VHS tape. Throughout the video you see graffiti walls in an abandoned building. With The Boy Audacity (South Jersey) on the production, it does capture that 90s hip-hop boom-bap essence. Love your shirt Lazare! Rockin’ that Kelly Kapowski. And the visual direction of G2 and SPK Beatz was on point from the different camera perspectives.
For this weeks segment, I decided to show love to someone who works behind the scenes in the music industry rather than the forefront. I feel that music producers, graphic designers, videographers, photographers, etc a lot of the times don’t get the recognition they deserve. So I asked myself,”Why not make this piece about someone who does it all”? I felt that Just Visions was the perfect candidate. But, instead of doing a write-up, I thought we’d all get to know Just Visions and his brand a little better in a brief Q&A. You can also checkout some of his work down below:
Q: What inspired you to pick up the camera?
A: My father took up photography as a hobby later on in life & left behind all his equipment & inspiration. So one day, I picked up his old Nikon D200 and was amazed how nice the pictures came out. A couple weeks went by, made some business cards and went to Club Living Room on South Beach when G Phill had that place on smash. I just took pictures of everyone, handed out my card, and posted them on Facebook. Next thing I know everyone was asking me, “How much”? It took off from there.
Q: What other services do you provide?
A: I mostly get inquires about photography (photo shoots, weddings, baby showers, kids events, club events) music videos, and V-logs. I don’t advertise but I also do graphic design and music production.
Q: Does Just Visions specialize in only music videos or can we expect a short film in the future?
A: I’m actually working on a featured film script to be shot in North Miami. I don’t really want to give to much away. We’re still putting the pieces together & building the right team in order to execute the vision.
Q: Where do you see Just Visions 5 years from now?
A: I hope I’m everywhere in 5 years! I would really like to expand Just Visions into a major production company based out of Miami, FL. I’d provide visual solutions from production to post production, high budget featured films, to working directly with major record labels shooting music videos.
Q: If you could summarize what Just Visions is all about in one sentence, what would it be?
A: Just Visions… It’s all on how you see it!
Consider this a proper introduction to J. Nolan. This New Haven, CT native made his way to Atlanta a few years ago where I had the pleasure of meeting him a few years back. As a manager, you aren’t just a fan of the music. You become a fan of the story that comes with the artist. I won’t spoil any of this by telling you. I’m just going to say witnessing growth, as we just did with Lebron, leaves you with a tingling sensation. Woo! Distinction is the lastest full length effort from J. Nolan and its incredible. Nostalgic production equipped with a lyrical flow of a hungry emcee makes this a must download. This project was hosted by the lovely folks over at DJBooth.net. #DistinguishYourself
Distinction is available as a stream and free download via the DJ Booth hyperlink above or the deluxe edition can be purchased via Bandcamp.
