From Richmond, Virginia's north-side comes a heavy voice, raw, unfiltered, with powerful delivery.
People in the city know him as 3waySlim, or simply J Slim. An artist who's been on his grind and making noise since his 2015 project "Premeditation", hosted by Don Cannon.
Since his last body of work, J Slim has been getting things in order personally, and musically whilst unleashing an onslaught of visuals and singles.
With OFF-MVP, Slim continues to give us insight into his mind and life, with his lyrically hefty style and innovative storytelling.
His often greatest asset in his music is his ability to give what some may consider "typical" street/hood stories in a fresh and conceptual way, striking well with many who relate to the struggle and grasp the attention of those unfamiliar.
Slim talks a lot about his story & how his own Morals, Values, and Principles have guided him through his journey out the Richmond dirt.
He bares it all with this EP, and gives us some REAL music in the process.
Scary thing is: These are just the tracks that didn't make his upcoming album, MVP!
This leaves much excitement and anticipation for J Slim and what more he has in store. Until then, stream the EP below!
Genre-bending hip-hop inspired soul artist, |Fritzwa|, releases her video for "Sittin' Pretty," the latest single off of her debut album Avenue A. Premiered by Afropunk who compared her sound to Erykah Badu, "Sittin Pretty" is a poetic, vulnerable glimpse into the isolation and doubt Fritzwa felt after uprooting from her home of NYC to Portland, Oregon.
Emile Vincent Manette is a member of Detroit Hip Hop collective, Clear Soul Forces - formed back in 2007. Describing his sound as a clash between lyrical Soul, Hip Hop and “whatever else I want,” Emile is as versatile as they come on the microphone. With influences rooted in his West Indian heritage, and Hip Hop, Emile embodies everything that can be considered “good music".
For his latest offering, Emile unleashes new visuals for his single, “The Box.” The concoction of drums, horns, and “out of the box” rhymes, make for a refreshing single that stands out in the sea of Trap beats, and superficial lyrics. In the Wayne (of Tenshun Studios) directed video, follow Emile as he goes through his day living outside the box.
Brooklyn Black Star and Reflection Eternal emcee Talib Kweli had been teasing his Radio Silence solo album since 2015 (at the most recent) so for it to come a full two years later is just enough time for fans to wait, even with the other projects Kweli's label Javotti Media made in the interim. Relax and exhale because the anticipated album, finally here, passes the hardest critical tests. With that cool, post-2010 Talib Kweli feel (in other words the first impression made after Javotti's inception), Radio Silence is an indie affair of flyness, anthems, calm vocal protest against violence in the streets, love, and guests from the under- and aboveground, all of them, even Waka Flocka and Rick Ross, pulling substance out for this particular artist and occasion. Despite all the wisdom and awareness in the author, the subject matter takes only some risks and not quite seismic, and the production, while prominent, won't have everyone coming back for seconds or thirds. It doesn't match the perfection or near-perfection of Talib Kweli's earliest work, but because it's nicely conscious, free of any major slip-ups and arriving at a time when mainstream rap is lowering its performance-related standards, Radio Silence really can catch on and silence the radio. (3 out of 5 stars)
One of my favorite emcees over the last couple years honestly has been North Carolina artist thedeeepend. I first heard him on P.A.T Junior’s debut album “Learning to Live (In A Day)” on the track “There’s A Cooler Way”. That was enough for me to crave a solo album from him and we finally got it in “Think Good Thoughts”.
“Think Good Thoughts” is thedeeepend’s debut EP and like many other EPs in 2017, he’s showcasing a wide set of talent. First off keep in mind that thedeeepend produced the entire project himself, second the energy on this will have you craving a live set from the NC standout. Thedeeepend covers a multitude of topics and has me excited for the possibility of a full-length album for 2018. Take a listen below and if you need a sampler first you can check out “War, Zone”.
We took the opportunity to get to know a little more of just what R.A.D. is all about:
They say love and R&B are lost arts amongst this generation.. and if you're dreaming of a "Holy Matrimony," well, you can just forget about it. Bay Area crooner Cash Campain is here to set the record straight and let it be known that this stigma doesn't apply to everyone with his brand new music video. Th storyline of "Holy Matrimony" involves a PYT, a live performance that hopefully won her over, and a band that brought the serious vibes for the soundtrack to Campain's new release. The songster grabs his blood brother, rising Bay emcee CALEBORATE to further reiterate the facts: love conquers all. And if miss lady is the one, watching Cash Campaign serenade all over the stage during his performance was as close to putting a ring on her finger than it could get. Let's make singers great again. Tune in up top for the latest, and stay tuned as Cash Campain is only warming up the masses for what more is to come.
