EP Review: RealProperLike – Signs

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:



Download: MyVerse – State of the Art Album


Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 11.22.29 PMRock Steady Crew Member/Poet-MC/Queen of the Ring/Latina/Activist MyVerse is debuting the new year with her album State of the Art. The thirteen track album gives you a closer look into MyVerse’s Universe. Starting the project with her spoken word on P.O.E.T, in which she speaks so passionately. MyVerse is the essence of hip-hop. She portrays the style, vibe, and overall experience. Her track Vida Linda captures MyVerse hispanic roots (Puerto Rico/Panama) with her Spanish lyrics over this dope hip-hop beat produced by BaseCampBeats. She also rips it in SPANISH, on Orijen. She’s definitely on point over Butterscotch’s beatboxing.

What don’t you love about MyVerse? Not only she can rap and sing she can also direct and edit her own music videos. Check out these two off her State of the Art album with Vida Linda and Black Swan.

State of the Art; overall is a great listen definitely an 9/10. MyVerse gives her all throughout the creative process for this album. Amazing beat selection, insane lyrics, and some dope features from Jon Connor (Track 7 – Keep On) and Jonny Storm (Track 9 – Rosey). This is a must download! Don’t forget to click the cover art above to get the link via iTunes.
