st louis

#MIDWESTBEST in the maaahhh fuggginnn’ building! It’s your girl, MidWest Melly. I would like to introduce you to yet another Chi-Rock Nation collaboration. The “Used To Be Bobby & Darrick” album has been released August 12th and artists: Jah Ora (Bobby) and KD Assassin (Darrick) are putting St. Louis on the “Street Hop” map! Their infectious blend of Hip Hop mixed with soul, reggae and classic boom bap is something the game not only wants… it requires! It is the first collaborative effort from KD Assasssin and Jah Orah which also features MC923. While Stephen Instumental King (from Systematic Muzick), 44 Degreez, Josef Leimberg, Pop dDub, Tony Baines, Baby Paul, Akili and DJ Reminise produce plenty of magic… Jah and KD lyrically lay down the tricks, track for track.

Used To Be Bobby and Darrick

Stop What U Doing, every track on this album is a BANGER-BANGER. Self titled track, “Used To Be“, will give you a taste of the head knockin’ experience. Be prepared to press play and then repeat on “BruisHer” featuring Tef Poe. The song and video for “It’s Not The Same” have a serious West coast vibe and are an anthem to everybody and anything that used to be important in each of our lives. “No Way” has a rebellious reggae flow. Check the bonus track for the beat on “Troubled Mindz – Skinny Gorillaz” featuring MC923 as it is so, so, so serious. There are plenty more notable features including artists such as: Bo Dean, Aceyalone, Black Spade and Dharma Jean.

This is not your average production. This is not your average mainstream music. This is a reminder to everything REAL HIP HOP Used To Be and then some. Make sure ya’ll cop and rock this entire download. MidWest Melly, signing off! Shout out to my CRN4 family. ONE LOVE.

Music Video: Inner Circle – Young, Wild & Free (Reggae Remix) ft. I-Octane & Bizerk

Check out the latest collaboration from Legendary Reggae group Inner Circle featuring I-Octane and Bizerk. The remix was based off Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, and Bruno Mars track Young, Wild & Free. I love this rendition! It just makes me feel so good. Everyone looks like they are having a great time during the shoot. Did you catch Flo Rida and Tony Matterhorn making a cameo? Young, Wild & Free was directed by Alex Arabov and Adolph Chancy.
