NEW MUSIC: Jumpman “A Bad Trip”
Posted 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”
Posted 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”

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”
Posted 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.

  • What’s Your Name?

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?
