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

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

TJ Pompous: “PonyBoy EP” – spearheading the evolution!

TJ Pompous who also goes by the name of PonyBoy, is a producer, rapper, and singer-songwriter from Stockbridge, GA. TJ is part of a group of emcees called APEX SOCIETY who has released 2 albums so far. His debut solo project is called “PonyBoy EP”. It follows the story of the book, The Outsiders.

TJ took some inspirations from the movie and gave it a hip hop twist. Currently, he is also working on his follow-up EP to be called “The Diamond Kid”, as well as producing EPs for the other members in his crew.

First, let me preface this by saying that I am not a hardcore hip-hop fan, but I do like it. I was really excited to get this EP because I knew it was going to be different and, frankly, no artist in any genre is being different right now. I have really been waiting for a recording like this to come along.

TJ Pompous

I have listened to it nonstop since I found it and it already feels like a classic, like it’s been around for a really long time. TJ Pompous has done what few hip-hop artists have been able to: grow as artists and push the limits of the genre without sounding presumptuous or at worst, corny.

With the exception of a few releases hip hop has often let me down. Its predictability, self-assured ego and lack of depth and emotional power have almost always had me listening to more rock music. Then one fine July day, something magical happened; TJ Pompous hit me over the head with the release of “PonyBoy EP”.

Is this TJ flexing his creative muscle in an attempt to give urban music the kick in the ass it so sorely needs? The answer to that question is, HELL YEAH! While there’s some of the usual player stuff; it’s not nearly as clichéd as most of the rappers cluttering up the airwaves.

TJ Pompous can been described in many ways; weird, eccentric, wise and powerfully alluring, but this outing will get him another description; genius. TJ deals with lots of emotions and situations, as he slides between rapping and singing with effortless ease.

As history has shown with other genres of music, hip-hop needs another evolution, and TJ Pompous is spearheading the movement with eclectic songs like “Nothing Stays Gold Forever”, “Cherry Lover” and “The Golden Song”, with its brilliant use of some classic music samples.

Whether it is realized now or later, “PonyBoy EP” is a classic hip-hop recording. It clearly showcases extreme creativity in music, lyrics and overall production. For those deep into hip hop and fed up about the way the music has deteriorated in recent years, pick this up and have your faith renewed.

Don’t be fooled by the radio, MTV and BET that what you see and hear represents all that hip hop has to offer. There’s more…there’s TJ Pompous.
