Bizeeee: “Looking For It” – an out-of-this-world scenario!

What separates #Bizeeee aka #4ez from many of today’s rappers, is his indestructible delivery. Every verse no matter what he is rapping, he relentlessly pound his rhymes into your head mercilessly, with bone crushing stanzas and a ruthless attitude. Every word spoken shows an aggressive mood and seemingly cannot be stopped by anything. With this intensity also comes a very dramatic and cinematic driven production. This intense style is especially shown 4ez’s latest single, “Looking For It”. This song is driven by a rhythmic drumbeat, hissing hi-hats, and harmonized by futuristic and spacey keys. This is a chance for 4ez to step

Quintin Tarintinto: “No Self Pity” – dense articulation!

Tallahassee, Florida rapper, Quintin Tarintinto has his 2019 fifteen track project, “No Self Pity”, out right now. This is the record many of Tarintinto’s contemporaries would love to make, but they don’t have a sufficient enough state of consciousness to draw inspiration from, or truly focus the menagerie of their minds upon. It’s the most topically cohesive, palatable and headily conscious Tarintinto ever been for an entire set of songs. His universal vision makes it all work together in perfect, coalescing, high-tech harmony. A less knowledgeable Quintin Tarintinto might have asked compelling questions and never get to present the answers projected

3Mind Blight: “Make This Right” – transcribes emotions into music perfectly

Let’s begin with the fact that 3Mind Blight doesn’t make music for the fans or the label. In the era of rappers who are doing it for the gram, 3Mind Blight is all about the art of self-expression: he isn’t rich, he isn’t cocky, and he respects those who came before him. His style is not rap focusing on bling or hedonism, instead he observes and tries to teach us everyday lessons about ourselves, but his focus is also knowing he is better now than he once was and only plans to get better, something that should be recognized as

Flo: “Mix in a Water” – all of it is crisp and gorgeous!

James Florio aka Flo, is a Toronto, Canada based producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. His signature style combines diverse musical elements and genres together to create an immersive listening experience. The rich mixture of delicate sounds, booming basslines and silky, chopped vocals will keep listeners coming back for more. His latest single is “Mix in a Water”. Is there any way to describe the music of Flo other than stylistically shimmering, and rhythmically hypnotic? Not really: write down those words and free-associate as much as possible with eclectic and luscious, and chances are you’ll have written Flo’s press blurb. The Flo

Capo 2G: “Pullup” ft. KirkoBanz – a tidal wave of aural sensation!

Capo 2G is a Hip Hop artist currently based in Las Vegas, Nevada. Originally from Lagos, Nigeria, his unique, island fused sound which he defines as AfroHipHop is one of the many factors giving rise to his growing fan base. Capo 2G’s close relationship with A-listers such as Rae Sremmurd gives him the opportunity to learn from the front lines as he prepares himself to step into the spotlight. He begins his first solo tour in Trinidad, Colorado on February 21st. This isn’t exactly a startling revelation, but hip-hop has always been rife with emcees who style themselves as unrepentant

J.R.Clark: “Zenith Spokes” – Capable of balancing and articulating his conceptual goals

J.R.Clark is a hip-hop artist based in Virginia Beach, VA. He started his career behind the mixing board as a studio engineer. In 2014 started releasing his own music and building a following in the underground hip-hop scene. Inspired by artists like Curren$y, Stalley, Big K.R.I.T, J.Cole, Rick Ross, Schoolboy Q, and Chance the Rapper, J.R.Clark’s latest project, an EP titled “Sunset Symphony”. If, after listening this recording, you’re under the impression that J.R.Clark is preparing to take over the world, you’re neither alone nor unjustified. For decades hip-hop has seen myriads of artists fleetingly captivate the attention of listeners

Natalie Jean: “What Would You Do For Love?” – a show-stopping exhibition

Admittedly I have been waiting years now for Natalie Jean to surpass her previous levels of excellence; she had arrived quietly with not much fanfare, and she steadily declared her arrival with a number of albums, singles and collaborative efforts. Needless to say I was impressed. Yet, while I immediately acclaimed and understood that Ms. Jean was indeed extremely talented, she had, as far as I was personally (and secretly) concerned, yet to produce anything indicating she was even close to showcasing what I suspected to be her fully unrealized potential—that is of course until I listened to “What Would

Jevil Project: “Shade” – Positive artistic aggression!

The Jevil Project is a France-based instrumental metal act, who does not perform live, but prefers to create music meant to be listened to. Jevil Project is proficient at marrying sludge metal riffery with dirtier post-rock guitar melodies. Trudging, down-tuned riffs drive each song, while subtle melodic movements develop on top. This pattern works to fantastic effect on the 4 track EP – “Shade”. There are tons of incredibly inspiring moments on this album. There are also plenty of riffs that will make your head bang uncontrollably. Moreover there seems to be sense of adventure on the recording, and with

Wild Horse: “Songs About Last Night” – embody everything before, current, and probably hereafter!

Wild Horse are a young vibrant original British Rock Band, from Burwash, East Sussex, formed by two brothers – Henry Baldwin (Vocals, Guitar & Harmonica) and Jack Baldwin (Vocals & Guitar) – with school friend Ed Barnes (Drums), 6 years ago, when they were around 12 years old. They have since released two albums and three EP’s, while building up a solid following in the South East. Their latest record out is the 10 track album, “Songs About Last Night”. Wild Horse have served up an entertaining, tightly produced album here. It’s very cool to hear a band playing stripped

Testify to tha Music: “Live 2 Worship” speaks to a new generation with a new sound and new language

Testify to tha Music (aka Testify-Music) was born and raised in Prattville, Alabama. He began to play piano at the age of 10 and joined the band program soon after he turned 14. He sees his music as a way of spreading hope and encouragement to people who would not normally get it through other forms of music. Testify is not afraid to admit that he’s a Christian and that he loves God! In a recent interview Testify stated. “I fully understand that being open and honest about my relationship and faith limits me as an artist when it comes to performances and shows outside of typical church setting, but I’m willing to take the risk if it means I’m able to change someone’s life” When asked about his style of music he simply said, “Its a mixture of Southern Hip-Hop, Rock and Worship formed into one unique sound.

testify-l2w-400Testify is currently promoting his latest project entitled “Live 2 Worship” which explains the many questions teenagers ask about worship. The EP features artists Lincoln Campbell, Aaron Ray, Candice Mark and many others! The project released on iTunes April 20!

With a variety of topics, a variety of beats, and a veritable crew of featuring artists, it’s an album any hip-hop fan, not just Christian hiphop fans, shouldn’t miss. There are no average tracks on this EP, all the beats, production and messages are amazing.

If you are enslaved to rhymes and beats that glorify the darkness and teach you about drugs, adultery, guns, pride, and everything else that could lead a person into being a false image and truly into a state of depression and disobedience to the God of love, despair not. Thanks to God, artists such as Testify to tha Music have come up with solid beats and lyrics that are just as catchy and ‘intoxicating’, but totally positive.

testify-t2w-250The Holy Spirit definitely worked through Testify here. I have played through the entire EP probably 10 times already without skipping any songs. They speak on great topics that we all need to hear and reflect on. I particularly enjoyed the two opening tracks, “This is Worship (ft. Lincoln Campbell & Aaron Ray)” and “You’re the Reason (ft. Candice Mark)”, while “Take Me Higher (ft. Lincoln Campbell)” and “Morning Prayer (ft. The Hero Under God)” forge a parade of hard-to-resist electro beats.

“Live 2 Worship” has the scripture in every song! It speaks to a new generation with a new sound and new language, but it has the same scripture. Every song paints a picture of the way of the Lord in a manner that is unique and clear. The lyrics are accurate yet made understandable and the hooks and melodies are very enjoyable too.

This EP is seriously on a new level and raises the bar for what Christian Rap is thought to produce. The beats and production of the songs are radio quality. Testify is a good storyteller which is the key in the rap game for captivating audiences. His word play is nice, his flow is on point and he touches on real life everyday topics. This young man has a real heart for God and a close relationship with Him; it is evident in the words he writes.

I really enjoy how humble and honest Testify to tha Music is in these songs and how he continues to throw in the references to Christ and his faith. The lyrics, hooks, beats, and featured artists all point to one simple thing – “Live 2 Worship”!
