Downtown Mystic – ‘3-Way Heartbreak’ – more than just a nostalgic listening experience!

One of the things Downtown Mystic notoriously excel at is masking emotional lyrics with upbeat, driving-with-the-windows-rolled-down kind of melodies. Their double-side single, ‘3-Way Heartbreak’, which also includes the track ‘Same Old Lover’, recorded in 1983, has all that and more. While for most other contemporary bands, it’s hard to recapture the real magic of rock n’ roll, for Robert Allen and his crew, this comes easy. They grew up during rock’s golden era, hence Downtown Mystic’s music lives up to the genre’s legacy, rather than just riding on its coattails.

LaPrece Noir – “Bout Money” – deft skills and sharp delivery!

Born Kenyatta LaPrece Dugans, Flint Michigan’s LaPrece Noir, is Hip Hop/R&B artist, songwriter, and music producer. She credits her creativity and artistry to the likes of Nas, Lauryn Hill, and Mary J Blige, among others. Over the years she LaPrece Noir aka Mahogany, has transitioned from studio artist to featured artist and live performer. Her music has been featured on TV shows such as; Pit Bulls and Paroles, Rehab Party at Hard Rock and many more.

Now LaPrece Noir unleashes her brand new single “Bout Money”. This latest material is strong, with our up and coming visionary showing how she can flip and reverse even the most tired genre tropes.

“Bout Money” is a skeletal banger that shows how less can be more when it comes to making speaker-shattering rhymes, and how that maxim can be made more true by LaPrece Noir’s deft skills; her sharp delivery only adds to the verses’ potency, while the chants and scratches call back to hip-hop’s two-turntables-and-a-mic early days.

It may sound like a retro move, but music gives off the vibe that LaPrece Noir is some sort of beat-riding oracle, and she makes it work perfectly. The lady is blazing a trail for hip-hop diversity, and it’s veering off, the lame mainstream directions, is par for the course.

However this is still a contemporary hip-hop record, particularly in regard to the sleek nature of the production work.  As far as the flow, and her rhyming skills is concerned, “Bout Money” is a perfect example of how LaPrece Noir can easily fit the bill of the flex-driven nature that rap employs nowadays.

Only a few artists known more for their rap prowess could pull off a record like this. LaPrece Noir delights in busting boundaries and transforming perceptions – be it her insane rhymes, songwriting expertise, otherworldly production choices and, of course, her iconic good looks.

LaPrece Noir’s growing resume is bulletproof, and she has no problem adapting her style to any musical landscape. Her lively delivery is as infectious as ever, as is her swagger and wit on “Bout Money”.  The track is a sticky hip-hop blend with an addictive beat that isn’t afraid to embrace both minimal and sexy.

The writing, the energy and the fun are all here. It’s almost impossible in rap, a genre that seems to take an evolutionary musical leap every three months, to stay relevant, but LaPrece Noir aka Mahogany seems to have all the requisites for staying abreast of modern trends while forging her own style.

LaPrece Noir’s latest body of work, is a taut arrangement of slinky, self-assured hip-hop that fuses throwback sensibilities with the absolute futurism. The rapper dismisses any odds that may be stacked against her with ease and swagger, turning her grand performance into a victory lap.

Her delivery is confident, vibrant and injected with the gusto of a self-assured player holding roll the dice in hand. Despite its brevity, “Bout Money” feels like a kaleidoscopic portrayal of the rapper’s multifaceted skillset as an artist. It is a sure sign of great things to come.
