[MUSIC VIDEO] Tamara Bubble – All Female Rappers

tamara bubble all female rappers music video


It’s been a minute since the last time we featured Brooklyn female emcee/singer Tamara Bubble. Let me refresh your memory. Tamara Bubble demonstrates her capabilities with her talents. Model, Entertainer, Songwriter, and Actress. This time we are presented with an empowering statement in her latest visual to ALL FEMALE RAPPERS. The title really intrigued me and so I had to press play. And I’m glad I did. Tamara Bubble went on a search to find out through a hip-hop forum, what they truly thought about “Female Rappers”.

And to Tamara’s surprise she was blown away from the negative stigma that comes around that. Even though a few mentioned who they thought were dope they yet to show true support for the female lyricist. Tamara Bubble decided to create a single/visual as a response to the shade. Tamara’s rocking a superhero cape (not literally) rapping female artists out there. She makes so many points on this one you have to watch this more than once.

A few years back, I actually had Tamara Bubble perform at one of my open mics once for iScream Sundays. What a dope performance! But I would love to know what you guys think about what Tamara Bubble has to say on her latest ALL FEMALE RAPPERS.

Music Video: VIIK – PAPER/PAPER Remix

viik visual


vii paper/paper remix[BROOKLYN, NY] Making her debut on NikkiSiixx.com, VIIK brings us her latest visuals to PAPER/PAPER REMIX. The singer/songwriter/producer delivers a mix of electronic, hip-hop, dub reggae and even some trap elements. VIIK goals is to promote semi-conscious lyrics with beats to make you bounce. You definitely have to on this record!

According to VIIK: “Paper” is a satirical yet playful hip-hoppy reggae banger about the power of the “almighty dollar” and the grip it has on society. There’s so much chaos in the world yet we are all distracted by our daily quest for the cash. It keeps a lot of the population from becoming aware and finding their purpose. And on top of that as a human of color, racism and systematic oppression is still alive.

PAPER/PAPER REMIX brings us some funky psychedelic visuals. I really like VIIK goth/edm look with the hot pink dreads, pink eyebrows, and everything leather. Her voice in kind and delivers a powerful message. Its time to get that paper. Follow VIIK via her Twitter Account @VIIK_WORLD and get updated on new content!

Music Video: Jasmine Jordan – Smile

jasmine-jordan-smile

Jasmine

[Los Angeles, California]

The stand alone followup to her debut EP, Time Travel, Jasmine Jordan’s infectious voice has us happily bopping along with her song Smile.

The video makes great use of color in order to convey the different types of emotions she’s singing about. With the current state of the game, music videos are often something you just do to get them out of the way and little thought is put into how they complement the song. It’s great to see how Jasmine’s visual goes against that way of thinking in order to enrich the song. After listening to it on Soundcloud, I had all sorts of warm colors in my mind based off of the production and lyrics alone. It was really nice to see those colors put on screen almost as if they had been ripped right from my mind.

Pleasant video. Worth a watch/listen for the soulful R&B Heads out there.

Music Video: Trent Crews – Greedy Love

Trent Crews


trent crewsThere is an R&B singer who calls Columbus, Ohio home with a hot new video for his summer record “Greedy Love”. Trent Crews is the name, and he isn’t bashful about “wanting it all” from his lover. Walking the streets of New York, Trent sees what he wants and takes it while he serenades his lady listeners. Times Square, Chinatown, and other dope locations provide the back drop and the choreography with his background dancers are on point. The video adds to his steady collection of quality visuals his latest leads the way for his EP which is expected to make its way to retailers in September! Trent Crews seems to be on his way to the top, and I wouldn’t bet against someone who “wants it all”.

Music Video: Charlee Remitz – King’s Cup

Charlee Remitz photo kings cup


Screen shot 2015-04-03 at 1.03.10 PMOne thing I really like about my site I can always divert to another genre besides hip-hop, because I love music in general. I came across a gem that I couldn’t help to find the time to shine some light on. Charlee Remitz, a singer slash songwriter released her song called KING’S CUP. The song portrays an abusive relationship that Charlee Remitz had with a family member. In which she felt she was always walking on egg shells, specifically because she never knew what was going to set this person off. I feel that the director Bruce Guido was able to portray this type of relationship in this visual. We see a young ballerina dancing on the sidewalks of Hollywood Boulevard. While performing on the street she collects money in a hat. The young girl’s father is the one who has her doing this to find ways of making an income for himself to splurge in the casino. The music video was executed perfectly. The actors did amazing. I feel like I’m watching a real movie. This is how music videos should be, portraying a story that’s so empowering. Spread your wings Charlee, you got this! I love how she’s singing by the sunset on Malibu beach. Her makeup was spot on! She also released her album Bright White Trims a few days ago. Be on the look out for more content from Charlee Remitz! Produced By: Mike Gonsolin

#SmaktastikReviews: Tamara Bubble – Living It Up

Tamara Bubble_Living it Up Single Cover

Tamara Bubble_Living it Up Single Cover

What’s good music lovers! It’s Pedro comin’ at ya’ with that good good – that mash your face up while you nod your head music – that music that reminds you why you still download MP3s to your itunes or have that custom audio deck in your vehicle. Nikki hit me up with a lot of music to review this week and out of all of them, this one had me like:

“OoOoOoooh smaaaack!! you go girl!”

You Go Girl

Tamara Bubble! Songwriter, actress, singer and model from Brooklyn, NY. She writes and performs everything from Dance to Hip Hop, blending elements of Jazz and Soul. It seems as if there’s nothing she can’t do. She shows her versatility on this record by delivering confident rap vocals accompanied by an upbeat melodious hook that had me out of my seat doin’ some kinda’ Beyonce dance.

tumblr_inline_mlav7tS7gV1qz4rgp

I was sweatin’, I was dancin’, I was sippin’, I was livin’ it up. Mission Accomplished Tamara. Krazy Figz did an excellent job on the production. The music complimented Tamara perfectly.

The quality of the vocal mix could be improved upon though. There were times where the adlibs overpowered the main vocals which disrupted the blend. This however, didn’t detract from the overall enjoyment of the song at all. I would still blast this in my car. I could still hear this in the club. I could still buss’ a Beyonce to it.

I love how she delivered both competent, cohesive rap verses and singing hooks that make you go:

She can RAP and SING!
23icry1

A lot of singers who rap on their records sound uncomfortable and unnatural but Tamara really sounds like she’s in her element.

I like this song, love her sound, love her charisma and her style. Despite the vocal mix, I still appreciated the record and want to hear more from this artist. Color me a fan! Her new single is now available on iTunes. Click here to check it out.
