NEW MUSIC: J-Dub “Roc Back”
By rapRISE |

J-Dub - RocBack_Cover

It’s been a while since J-Dub was stricken with Insomnia. Has he finally gotten the rest he needed? Is he back to stay? We don’t know. But it sure is good to hear that old Roc-A-Fella sound again. Hov and Just Blaze would be proud.

NEW MUSIC: Matt Easton “One”
By LG |

Matt Easton releases another single from his recently released album “The Grey Area”. This song wasn’t one of my favorites, but you can’t deny it’s quality. Mixing problems aside, it’s lyrically sound, and the production is pretty cool as well.

NEW MUSIC: Kyle Bent “The Vent”
By LG |

Kyle Bent gives us something smooth to listen to while most of the nation is still shaking off winter. Fits perfectly with the atmosphere. He gets some stuff off his chest here, using that awesome old-school flow of his.

NEW MUSIC: Jumpman “A Bad Trip”
By LG |

A Bad Trip (01-04-14-08-56-11)

Jumpman has a trill one here. But he has some timing issues with his flow. Once perfected I could see his songs like this getting a lot better.

NEW MUSIC: Deem “Spite”
By LG |

Spite (prod. By BennyNice) (01-04-14-01-04-54)

Found a gem with this one. Deem has a great flow and the persona to take it to another level with his music. Spite is a great song due in equal parts to the awesome production, and Deem’s great wordplay. Worth multiple listens.

NEW MUSIC: Ant-Live ft. Fre$co Miyagi “Swoosh”
By LG |

swoosh (01-03-14-05-22-33)

Ant-Live would fit right along with the ASAP Mob if they had an opening. I could almost hear Rocky on the chorus. Not a bad song, though I don’t agree too much with their interpretation of the word “Swoosh”.

NEW MUSIC: Lusive ft. Cienna Jade “Own Key”
By LG |

IMG_9701 (01-03-14-03-32-09)

Lusive did a good job of crafting a melodic sounding chorus, but a good song, it is not. Pitch issues with the feature singer bog down the song, even with the strong showing from Lusive.

NEW MUSIC: Joey Onabolu “Overdose” ft. Jamie Foxx
By J.Scott |

Slowing things down, with some filtered vocals from Mr. Foxx, Joey Onabolu takes one too many hits of you.

  • What’s Your Name?

    Who are you? Really. Ask yourself that. The first step to making a presence is knowing who you are. The one thing that should always be consistent throughout your brand, (yes, you are a brand), is your name. Occasional name changes aside, your name always be the same. But when upcoming rapper, let’s call him “Kid Magic”, releases new music and his YouTube account calls him “K.I.D. Magic”, song title calls him “KidMagic”, Twitter calls him “Kiidd Magic”, and so on and so forth, how are his fans supposed to connect to his brand?
