We all know him as "Dre" from Power, but who knew that "Dre" whose real
name is Rotimi is out here making music and it sounds good. Rotimi's
latest album, called "Jeep Music" Volume 1, is a mix of R&B with a
little reggae feel. Rotimi's
first song off the album is "Want More", which makes you want to
sing along as well as wind your body to it. On this album Rotimi has
several featured artist, like 50 Cent and TI on a track called "Nobody"
that will have you thinking about who you're giving
it up to. Another track called "Baecation" will have you wanting to
spend time with your boo. Overall Rotimi's "Jeep Music Volume 1, is
definitely something that you can groove to on the regular basis if you
like R&B music and something both you and your
significant other can enjoy together. So, if you're ready to hear a good
mix of R&B, go out and pick up Rotimi's latest album. Who knew "Dre" was so talented??? Let us know what you
think.. Peace and love!
"Peddler themes" the latest EP from Brooklyn MC Skyzoo is a mediocre
effort at best. This is a hustlers tale that opens and closes with a mom
explaining how she tries to but can't keep her son out of the streets.
The concept of the album is definitely not a new one but I can't deny
Skyzoo's wordplay skills. The production includes a lot of 90's samples
none of which are really outstanding. "Let it fly" is one of best tracks
on this project. The instrumental is smooth, hook is solid and is a
great match for his flow. Another stand out track is "95 Bad boy logo".
The beat is lackluster but the concept along with his wordplay had me
reminiscing. Skyzoo is a very skilled MC but his songwriting skills are
piss poor on this project. The hooks don't capture and the tracks aren't
enough to keep you listening. I feel like no creativity was put into
it. On a 1 to 10 scale I give this EP a 3 off if the strength of
wordplay. I hope to hear better from him in the future.
Nowadays it's rare for me to get excited about hearing a rapper from my hometown of Philly but I came across DELL-P's music while visiting the good brother's from Unify Global's barbershop. They was playing DELL's Hot new album "4 da Art". I mean song after song had me nodding my head, so I asked damn who is that, he dope as shit! I'm a huge fan of rappers who can make songs full of insightful content. DELL-P's talent is unmatched here in Philly. Listen for yourself to his album below:
Boyz Records is a new label on the rise in the music
business and now they present their new artist Shiest City. Coming from
Brooklyn, New York which already has a huge history in hip-hop (Jay Z,
Biggie, Fabolous, Lil Kim and more), Shiest is now ready to represent
and build his own legacy as well not just as an artist from Brooklyn but
across the world. With plenty of
content already online and already having built a following in Flatbush,
Brooklyn he brings to you his latest project "Kobe Brady" Volume 1.
project has 16 tracks full of fire and also features the hit record
"Life Like This" ft. hip-hop legend Jadakiss, Dyce Payne is on the
record as well.
Other smashes include "Numb", "Blue City", and "No Heart".
Check out the project below and more soon as Boyz Records and Shiest City are ready to take over.
Best Songs: "Wins and Losses", "Young Black America"
(Rating System 1-10)
"Wins and Losses" the latest album from Philly rapper Meek Mill is
definitely a loss in my book. The lengthy LP features artists like Rick
Ross, Quavo, Chris Brown, Ty Dolla $ign and Young Thug. Even with these
popular artist's contributions this album couldn't be saved. Meek is a
great rapper. His flow, energy and beat selection is always on point. My
issue with this album is strictly content. The title song/intro to the
album is cool until you realize that the rest of the album sounds just
like it. I feel as if he made the same two songs over and over again
throughout this project with the exception of "What You Need" ft. Chris
Brown & Ty Dolla $ign, which is a chick song, and "Young Black
America" ,which is a great social awareness track. Look, I am a
fan of Meek's "Dream Chaser" mixtape series. To be honest he has
mixtapes that are 2-3 times better than this album. I wasn't expecting
too much versatility from Meek but a lot of these songs could have
definitely been cut from the track list. You would think after all the
adversity he has seen these past few years he would have gone a bit
deeper and found some creative inspiration. On a 1-10 scale I give this
album a 3. I hope to never hear it again.
