New Music: Devon Culbert – Oh Lawd featuring Isaiah G

Screen Shot 2015-01-26 at 2.05.35 PM

Screen Shot 2015-01-26 at 2.05.35 PMUp and coming hip-hop artist Devon Culbert from Tampa Florida, is apart of the youngest generation. Only being 16, Devon is able to maintain his own and was able within two years to come up with his concept and then about eight months on the actual project, Just For Practice EP. He recently released a track called OH LAWD featuring Chicago’s own Isaiah G. This was something “quick” cypher from Devon Culbert and Isaiah G. They were lucky to find this really laid-back beat from The Entreproducers that they could both vibe to and contrast with for full-effect OH LAWD. Song is straight BARS!! Stay tune for future features from Devon Culbert and follow him below on social media.

Ball Don't Lie Graphic 2013 Done

Check out the latest track from E Dott with BALL DON’T LIE. This track is his follow-up track from his Summertime single ABOVE THE RIM. I really like the vibe of the track, something to ride to. Born and raised in Tampa, FL. E Dott expresses himself through rhyme and rhythm. Harmonizing through the track. Thought this was a great listen. Stay tuned for E Dott’s crazy, upcoming single FRANK THE TANK dropping this Fall.


Album Review: Brandon* – Rainbow In The Dark


ritdBrandon* of Tampa, FL is releasing his first album “Rainbow In The Dark” on June 7, 2013. We were honored with a chance to stream the project before it’s release. The album starts with the intro track “Glow In The Dark” which sets the mood for the album with the thunder roaring like it would in a nasty storm. The song “80’s Baby” is about the essence of the 1980’s featuring vocals from Trumaine Lamar & Lexx Black. Mentioning the breakfast club, cabbage patch and other big monumental things from that decade they get their point across. On “Translucent Rhymes” Brandon* gives a sound that is melodic yet upbeat. “Morning Glow” has that feel like what you get listening to an Erykah Badu or Lauryn Hill. Listening to “Urban Vibes” you get that feeling of dancing in the rain under a street light. The title track “Rainbow In The Dark” with vocals from Trumaine Lamar you get a feeling of internal zeal. The track “8pm Stereo Talk” sounds like it could be played in a quiet storm mix. “Quiet Curves” follows in the same direction with a more sexual appeal. Hearing “The Silhouette Dance” give me the same feeling I got the first time I heard the beginning of J. Cole’s “In The Morning”.

The vocals of M.E.R.C on “Illumination” paints a create visual with great verses and a catchy chorus. He made “Cruise Control” have a space age yet chilled sound. “Super Sonic Electronic” reminded me of Missy Elliott’s “I’m Really Hot” with an electric feel. Lexx Black vocals on “Speed Of Light” made the production from Brandon* shine bright. On “Super Sonic Technologic” he took the “Technologic” by Daft Punk to an entirely new level. I felt like I was watching the original Tron movie while listening to “Space Paranoids”. It also reminded me of the scene leading up to Tony Montana being killed in Scarface. The album ends with “Plutopia” which sounds serene and tranquil. This album was a great listen that had my mind running in multiple directions. Go support Brandon* by purchasing the album from the pre-order link below or when it is released on June seventh. PRE-ORDER RAINBOW IN THE DARK

Download: Prince Golden – Dilla Still Illa

Click Image For Download
Prince Golden releases his second mixtape Dilla Still Illa as a tribute to J.Dilla and his fans. J.Dilla passed away in 2006 after losing his battle from TTP (Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura), a rare blood disease. Using instrumentals from classic tracks Prince Golden delivers his own input. The mixtape consists of 10 tracks. @DjQeys laid some cuts on Let’s Go. Had a few questions for Prince Golden and here are his answers:

NikkiSiixx: Since Dilla Still Illa Mixtape is a tribute to J. Dilla which track is your favorite and why?
Prince Golden: Hmm I would have to say a toss-up between Basement Rap and Have Mercy. Basement Rap, I was able to play with my crazy animated style and with Have Mercy the beat alone means a lot to me and I really wanted to let people know what I had on my mind.
NikkiSiixx: What message you want your fans to come across after bumping Dilla Still Illa?
Prince Golden: J. Dilla is a great producer and I am a dope emcee pushing myself to new heights

Dilla still illa because even though he is gone, his production kills most producers today!” – Prince Golden
