Tommy Tony recently unleashed his latest project – the 13 track album “Ca$H Only”. Tommy’s rugged bars sounds magical over soulful production, which is why this recording hits so hard. The setting allows his introspective thoughts to soar. Throughout, the rapper proves himself to be consistently witty, clever and skilled at setting fire to the vocal booth. His voice is all round edges and solid cores; he crops his words so that they’re clean and audible, and yet they also seem to run smoothly into one another. Other times, his rapping very fast and sounds unbothered.

Sure enough, the flow varies a number of times on “Ca$H Only”, as most excitingly, Tommy Tony performs a verbal balancing act against the tricky rhythms, while riding out the banging beats.

In the volatile universe of rap music, where traditionalists and young trendsetters fight for a place under the spotlight, and artists can blow up and flame out in a matter of months, “Ca$H Only” is set to send Tommy Tony towards center stage. His consistency and relatability should keep him there.

MORE ABOUT: Tommy Tony is seasoned emcee who has long been a student of the game, admiring the top lyricists of the golden era, such as Tupac, Jay-Z, and 50 Cent. He prides himself on his penmanship and keeps a reverence for the past with an eye on the future.

Mixtape after mixtape, Tommy showed his innate drive while rapping throughout the city of Boston, which led to a loyal fan base within the city and opportunities to open for artists such as Lil Wayne, G-Unit, Memphis Bleek, and many more. He is also a former member of the City Slickers Crew, a group that saw great success with their last project, “A.D.I.D.A.S.”

Tommy Tony is on radio rotation with the track “S.T.D.”

Ronald Major – “The Fight” – a powerful resource meant to inspire and motivate! http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/ronald-major-the-fight-a-powerful-resource-meant-to-inspire-and-motivate http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/ronald-major-the-fight-a-powerful-resource-meant-to-inspire-and-motivate#respond Fri, 27 Mar 2020 12:09:03 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=38968 The ultimate goal of a motivational speaker is to change people profoundly on an emotional and/or mental level, and to help them make some kind of professional or personal change in their lives and within themselves.

The ultimate goal of a motivational speaker is to change people profoundly on an emotional and/or mental level, and to help them make some kind of professional or personal change in their lives and within themselves. People naturally tend to focus on all their problems, and the motivational speaker will help people to focus on the many opportunities instead, by using any number of persuasive speech tactics to inspire and motivate. Motivational speech is art made into words, a powerful resource that goes beyond simply speaking well. Ronald Major is upcoming motivational speaker and author. His debut motivational EP, is entitled “The Fight”.

Almost like a hardcore rapper, Ronald Major delivers his inspiring ruminations with a hard-hitting delivery and words that pack an even greater punch. “The Fight” tackles real issues affecting real people. Through highs and lows, with eloquence and grace, the EP challenges you to bring the fight to life’s winding road.

A successful speaker is one who has something meaningful to say, penning words that will resonate with a broad audience. Ronald Major has achieved just that; in an increasingly polarized world at the hands of people who enjoy watching others fail. He cements himself as a critical commentator of a culture that blames its inadequacies and failings on outside sources.

“The Fight” is something you do within yourself first. This is a message that the EP strongly brings to the fore. Once you’ve beaten the internal conflicts within yourself, you’ll be able to take the fight to those outside sources hindering your progression in life.

Sonically rich and lyrically sharp Ronald Major’s spoken-word project feels like a deeply needed breath of fresh air in today’s tumultuous sociopolitical and cultural landscape, where giving up without a fight is almost par for the course.

Conscious of the everyday struggles that plague the masses. In a quest for the truth, Ronald Major exposes our failures, and in turn seeks to promote success by envisioning ways to reach our goals in our everyday lives despite the hardships we face.

In a period of great political, social and personal divide, Major couldn’t have chosen a better time to come out of the shadows. “The Fight” plays out like a rap album, not only because of the way Ronald Major poetically executes his empowering narratives, but because his words are underlined by some sweet beats, which keep the rhythm and momentum going.

For all intents and purposes this could easily be classified as a standard rap album. The main difference being that Ronald Major walks a higher path and swerves past the hype and the rhyme. He exchanges it for real talk, brutal honesty, and a stunning dose of positivity, at a time we need it most.

Bursting with hard-hitting commentary that pushes the woke meter past ten, and beaming with an air of straightforward honesty, you can feel the passion that Ronald Major has put into this project.

The spark that drives people to greatness is etched all over this album, so if you’re looking for some words that can inspire you to get onto the winning track, lay your ears on “It’s a Fight”, “Unexpected Blow”, “Its On”, “Faith Your Fears”, “Too Much”, “Why Fight”, “Aggression” and “Inner Me (Enemy)”. Few motivational speakers are able to conjugate music and message as effectively as Ronald Major does.

Tom A’s is a Dominican artist with a passion for Reggaeton, Trap, and EDM. His latest release is called “Fiesta”. The notes within it sound vigorous with the synths also sounding more expansive, and booming in order to give the track the hype it has to get everyone moving. So much can be said about this song, including Tom A’s vocals which move from seductive to anthemic, and finally into a chant on the chorus.

“Fiesta” hones in on its sound and directly fires straight ahead with power. It hits the emotional sweet spot and never let’s go. Tom A’s is already getting things heated for upcoming summer with the release of “Fiesta” which is packed with tricks and treats to make you dance your worries away while.

Laced with powerhouse vocals that swing you from one extreme to the other, Tom A’s gathers all of his talents into one stunning package that showcases his multifaceted approach to dance music.

Bridging the gap between pure electronic party groove and Latino rhythmic energy Tom A’s drives “Fiesta” a level of euphoria. Overall, this is a rewarding listen, regardless of your filter, and in some cases is almost transformative.

Tom A’s is first and foremost a very talented artist and musician with a natural ear for composition and beats, and when that is combined with a banging groove, it is no surprise that something powerful is the end result.

Featuring blaring chords, orchestral pad touches, as well as pumping rhythms destined to keep listener’s feet tapping, tinges of delicious high-toned leads and chord build up make for the perfect elements on “Fiesta”, as Tom A’s voice rides the peaks and valleys. The Dominican artist is clearly getting ready to light up dancefloors for the next couple of years to come.

Jessie G – “Aristotle” brings a bucket load of skills! http://jamsphere.com/featuredartists/jessie-g-aristotle-brings-a-bucket-load-of-skills http://jamsphere.com/featuredartists/jessie-g-aristotle-brings-a-bucket-load-of-skills#respond Fri, 20 Mar 2020 14:34:48 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=38883 First things first – Jessie G can rap, a skill developed over the years as an underground rapper.

First things first – Jessie G can rap, a skill developed over the years as an underground rapper. He dexterously melds styles and rides every beat with a vengeance, and now brings some righteous, slinky fury on his latest single, “Aristotle”. One of the founders of Spartanburg SC’s Dirty-Burg-Entertainment (D.B.E.) Jessie has been one of the faces of Spartanburg’s recent resurgence of rap music. For several years now, his collective have been everywhere in the upstate from radio, and TV, to festival appearances and even to Atlanta. He is currently back in South Carolina where he landed a Chief Recording Engineer position at Speaklife Studio.

The single “Aristotle”, is built on a bassline with an attitude; absolutely vicious, while the rapper definitely surprised me with his wittiness and cocky delivery. The track personifies all of the best qualities about Jessie G: his relatability and ability to rap circles around his colleagues, and almost all of his peers.

He sounds like he has this insatiable drive to succeed that will undoubtedly bolster his music to the top of the rap landscape within a couple of years if he maintains his momentum.

Jessie G is at his best when he provides his classic flow style, using a slower beat while he takes his verses in double time. He conveys lyrical prowess, raw storytelling chops, poised technical skills and a fearless attitude, all at the same time.

“Aristotle” – a smooth player-type song dedicated to shorty and her calculating mindset, delivers all of the aforementioned elements. Here, apart from showing that he’s witty and thoughtful, he confirms that he’s a real spitter. And in today’s climate of mumble-rap and emo-trap, that sounds like a whole lot of artistic baggage for just one guy to be packing.

Jessie G’s ability to balance minimal production and vocal arrangements plays an integral part of “Aristotle”. The track highlights the rapper’s ability to create a multidimensional product in terms of wordplay and vocal nuance, revealing a calculated dynamism.

Jessie G doesn’t only flow effortlessly on the instrumental, but even creates his own rhythm over the established beat. It’s a hard thing to explain, so it’s better to just listen.  “Aristotle” is an energetic, endearing listening experience with a raw soulful heart at its core and witty, caustic lyricism worn loosely on its sleeve.

Raw ambition can serve as the most impressive of driving forces, and when it becomes an all-encompassing desire to achieve – the results can often be more surprising than you expect. “Aristotle” finds Jessie G raising the bar higher than anyone could’ve predicted.

Bottom line is, Jessie G definitely proves himself to be a threat to the new school picture. But the good news is while he continues to get better as an artist, he has already shown that he has a bucket load of skills regardless.

Luweezo Beats is an independent artist originally from south Sudan, raised in Kenya, and then translocated to New Zealand. Luweezo is a one hundred percent do-it-yourself creator, who produces all his music, shoot his videos, mix and masters all his songs, and releases via the self-owned sud_waves inc imprint. He is also the CEO of Jna junubin Nation Award. Luweezo Beats is currently pushing his latest single entitled, “Take It Off”.

The new single is a top-flight blend of Afrobeat, Rap, Electro and Pop flavors, with Luweezo Beats at the peak of his powers and the rhythm as sharp as daggers. The interlocking bass and percussion stay on the same lane, while the synths surge around them.

Luweeza brilliant arrangement is full of unexpected gaps, blindsiding avalanches of rap verses, a hypnotic vocal hook, and manic energy. His baritone growl drips with groove, while he injects biting explicit bedroom talk into each line.

The verses grow increasingly frantic as the song progresses, building to Luweezo Beats’ wild and sexy commands. The brilliant drumming deserves a blurb to itself, as it accents so many parts of the beat, and without this technique, the song wouldn’t get to where it needs to go, which is directly to the dance-floor.

There aren’t many songs where even the drums alone are awesome, but this is one of them. A clattering pile of percussion pushes the tempo, which ushers in a series of staggering bass lines. The rest is left to Luweezo, who rides the beat with ease.

“Take It Off” hits like a sexy hammer you can dance to – perfect and absolutely essential. Sweet Afro beats infused dance tunes, do not get any better than this. The bass and drums are tough as rawhide and the lead vocal is a dirty, filthy, nasty delight.

There’s no sense beating about the bush: This song rips, with impacting rhythm, rampant raps, and mellifluous vocal hooks. The song’s banging undercarriage is like some sort of perpetual motion machine, and the track gains energy as it goes along, Luweezo Beats’ barking vocals piling up on top of twinkling synths.

Besides all the technicalities, “Take It Off” is comprised of enthusiasm. Well, enthusiasm and rhythm. Gobs of ecstatic, unstoppable rhythm, which is every bit as enthralling as the vocals. The groove is feisty and the playing rich in detail – it would be easy to simply imitate vintage Afro beats and come up with something halfway decent, but Luweezo Beats is the real deal, and brings a fresh blend to the table.

An urgent, propulsive beat designed to hold and release tension as needed, the song swaggers swiftly along for an economical three minutes and thirty three seconds. And by the time it’s over, you’ll be hoping there is a lot more coming from where this came.

DMV based record label Paper Chasers Association and DvffleBvg Ruggv have taken the next step in establishing themselves as a force with the artist’s video debut of his hit single “Paid”.  DvffleBvg Ruggv was born and raised in the DMV area and started rapping at the age of 13. He brings hyper confident, feel-good lyricism that matches his energetic delivery. The interplay between the rappers sharp, breathless flow and the incessant, low keyboard notes, cements the track. The punchy kick drum patterns and funky atonal bass further enhances energy to “Paid”.

This track’s production quality ups the ante from previous releases, in part due to the attention to detail. Underneath all the perpetual hedonistic charm, there’s his preternatural knack for penning infectious, curveball hooks, and his innate sensibilities that sees him deftly repackage his influences into his own freshly stirred brand. His music is visceral with quality production that most artists just don’t have when they are at the early stages of their career.

DvffleBvg Ruggv’s poised flow manages to be captivating over the heady, piano-driven production. His subject matter, definable as lifestyle rap, also supplies depth beyond simple designer name-drops and par-for-the-course hood braggadocio. Ruggv’s sound undeniably draws inspirations from multiple cultures throughout hip-hop, and fuses them into something that he’s finely tuned and packaged.

Instead of simply providing a track with intricate wordplay and heavy lyrical content, DvffleBvg Ruggv plays to all of his strengths which also highlight his keen ear for beats and hooks, and further sugarcoats his charismatic flow and unique style.

Hence, the single is most definitely one fans will enjoy blasting through their car systems. Looking to build off his engaging energetic vibe, Ruggv cranks things up to the max here.

“Paid” is a high-quality project for the budding star, providing something insanely captivating for listeners on a wide spectrum. DvffleBvg Ruggv’s attention to details is what will make him last in the long run, and his fearless attitude to push the envelope sonically makes him one worthy of keeping an eye out for.

The head-nodding nature of the single makes it an enjoyable listen, and Ruggv’s ability to maintain the sound that made his previous work so compelling, carries through on this release.

“Paid” is proof that DvffleBvg Ruggv is as dynamic on the mic as he is with producing visuals to accompany his powerful sound, in order to bring his vision to life and make for a masterful viewing experience.

With the release of this single, DvffleBvg Ruggv has strategically set the stage up for himself to drop one of the better projects this year. His enigmatic charisma and on point soundscapes will keep you coming back for more.

Surprise new artist, HuntB drops his debut single “Red Light” ft. Emayewhyoh across all streaming platforms. The song which is already receiving serious airplay, was premiered on DJ Vic XL of Atlanta’s Ridin Durty Radio broadcast to high praise and rave reviews. HuntB’s polished verses are associative and ambling, used as a tool for the artist to express himself.

Some of the genre’s best songwriters convey emotions through minute details, but HuntB’s gift is also for zooming all the way out and giving us the big picture of the cycles that bind us on a daily basis, through his personal storytelling.

Red Light” songwriting feels like an attempt to convey exactly what he’s thinking, doing, and experiencing to his listeners, in all its sprawling, complex glory. HuntB utilizes tight, almost conversational vocals, for the most part, to perfectly compliment the beautiful piano-driven backing track. Twinkling piano notes span the track, while the bass lines remains throbbing and somber, creating a dark atmosphere tinged in both introspection and cocky self-empowerment.

Red Light” ft. Emayewhyoh, is understated yet captivating, sucking you into its hypnotic gaze. You get lulled into HuntB’s hazy and smoky voice over the smooth instrumental. On this track, HuntB has a very down-to-earth style of music, with a laid back, but transcendent sound.

Though he never shouts and screams, the song is defined by an overreaching hubris, which allows HuntB to make bold declarations with absolute confidence. The melody and rhythm is mid-tempo and soothing, allowing the listener to almost relax and fall into the rapper’s lyrics.

This project sounds personal and mature, and it presents a fully-fledged glimpse at HuntB on his official debut – an essential moment in any artist’s life and career. Armed with a hot beat and some chillingly earnest lyrics, he is incredibly self-aware and ready to carve out his own lane.

The single proves HuntB capable of establishing a connection with his audience that will last, and also showcases the beauty of unflinching honesty of his craft.

Igniting a sense of musicality, on “Red Light” ft. Emayewhyoh, HuntB is good at describing the visuals in his mind with great detail, against production that barely stops short of being impressive. The results are thoroughly enjoyable, resulting in catchy, compelling hooks, and agile rhymes from HuntB. The tone totally suits the uncompromising, but restrained confidence, of the rapper from Montvale, Virginia.

HuntB is an upcoming wordsmith – he’s got gumption, he’s got passion, and he can definitely hold his own if he has to. He also proves that you don’t always need to use big complex words to get your point across or to make something sound good. He uses his natural born vibe and creativity to his advantage, penning a track many can identify with, and laying it out over a head nodding beat and a chill soundscape.

Hunnafied Records artist Yung Rida drops his latest official video entitled “P.O.GO”. It shows that the artist is a fierce lyricist with a killer sense of humor. He carves hustler party-jam poetry out of multisyllabics, scheming in micro-bursts and tightly woven lines, with an innate understanding of rhythm and timing. It all makes for an immaculate craft with which Yung Rida can do his thing – and which he promptly does with refreshing unpredictability on his latest banging single.

But what separates “P.O.GO” from every other record out there right now is that Yung Rida’s high energy lyrical ability is evenly matched with his production and song structure. This thing bangs with vintage, car-show styled drums, while it is propelled by powerful bouncing bass, and a whole lot of infectious one-liners ripe for singing along. This record truly has the best of both worlds – superiority in musical production, as well as explicit, hype-styled flows that will grab your attention.

From the moment you hit play, on “P.O.GO”, Yung Rida jetpacks straight into an unexpected high-energy flow that is guaranteed to raise your blood pressure, along the visuals which enhances the experience. Yung Rida absolutely annihilates this beat with his alpha dog personality combined with his aggressive, but mellifluous rapping. His attention to his forceful flow is totally focused, causing your mind to overload, while remaining perfectly on point and comprehensible.

Brand new artist Nuumelody goes out of the way to spread a powerful and empowering message about embracing yourself in her latest hit “BODY”. Her voice sounds assured and strong. With this song album, she confirms her position as a vocalist to watch in the coming months. Blending a mix of rhythmic groove, smart lyrics and soulful vocals, Nuumelody deftly displays the maturity and self-confidence that she has developed since her recording debut.

Having already worked with a variety of accomplished producers, Nuumelody showcases a smooth range of emotion and mood on “BODY”, produced by Defstarz that reveals the heart and soul of her craft.

The track is rounded out by an array of sensual, sexy nuances, which especially adds spice to the visual available for viewing on YouTube. What a journey this woman is on, and the fact that she’s independent means she’s probably recording what she wants and let me tell you, it’s beautiful.

Nuumelody is cornering her lane: shooting from the hip sonically while using her music as a gateway to put her full abilities on display as a performer, in creative music videos and electrifying recording sets.

She is working tirelessly to prove just how worthy she is of estimation without so much as breaking a sweat. She’s sounds comfortable in her growing womanhood and the power that comes with that, and on “BODY” she is reaching out to her sisters and telling them to accept and truly be themselves.

The themes of positivity and empowerment suit her well, and this is the type of message we need to hear right now. “BODY” is about figuring out who you are and learning to love yourself exactly as you are. Bursting with admirable sentiments, it’s consistently admirable, highly enjoyable, and absolutely essential. Nuumelody smartly brings it all together here!

GhostWryter – “Big Raggedy” – insanely listenable and trailblazing! http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/ghostwryter-big-raggedy-insanely-listenable-and-trailblazing http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/ghostwryter-big-raggedy-insanely-listenable-and-trailblazing#respond Sun, 15 Mar 2020 12:22:41 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=38815 “Big Raggedy” is the new track from rap artist GhostWryter.

“Big Raggedy” is the new track from rap artist GhostWryter. From the very start the listener is hyped to take on anything. The rapper does a great job of flowing over this beat to build tension and energy until it hits the iconic and climactic drum passages. At this point GhostWryter snaps with his high energy delivery, and it is the perfect way to get the listener charged with his vibe. This song is a mid-tempo banger with some triumphant keys and a killer hook from GhostWryter that will make you want to run through a wall. It makes the artist sound like an unstoppable force, and this energy is super infectious.

Although “Big Raggedy” is hype and celebratory, this doesn’t stop GhostWryter from getting his hustling subject matter and messages through to the audience, while riding an old-school flavored southern vibe. The flows, vocal inflections, and even accent sound just like something the major league southern thuggers used to do.

It’s a breath of fresh air in the era of sterile auto-tuned mumble rap. From start to finish, “Big Raggedy” is a captivating experience, insanely listenable and trailblazing on a sonic front. GhostWryter impresses off the strength of his candid bars and powerful melodic ear.

The free-flowing top-down track “Big Raggedy” falls into the category of those anthems that are all about the rap’s killer B’s: blunts, brew, bitches, and billions. GhostWryter approaches his rap like a true hustler. He talks game, he keeps it smooth, and you’ll find yourself being entranced without even realizing it. Cocky and slick, there is something about the way that GhostWryter lays down his groove that just catches you.

The smart thing is that, unlike some of his peers, GhostWryter isn’t attempting to be the savior of hip-hop or the preacher of all good or all evil, he’s not striving to be all pop or strictly street. Instead he finds a comfortable place in the middle ground, between catchy and hardcore. GhostWryter is a songwriter with a flair for making music people like to hear as much booming out the sound system as they do blasting on the dancefloor.

Musically GhostWryter is as consistent as they come – check out tracks like ‘SWANG’, ‘Antisocial’ and ‘Good Morning’ for further proof – and his distinctive accent is in prime effect throughout his confident lyrical flow. “Big Raggedy” rides a lithe beat, a liquid keyboard, and a firm bass and hand-clap. The thumping production provides the perfect backdrop to harnessing the trunk-demolishing groove of this track.

Catchy and captivating, with a beat that slams and bounces, and a smart balance between dynamics and drive, GhostWryter’s latest single release, “Big Raggedy” is hip-hop entertainment at its finest. The track is available now on YouTube and all other major platforms.

“On Ya Mark” is a single taken off the upcoming EP project, “Calculated Chances”, by new rap artist Take1. The song is described as being about: believing and winning as yourself.  “I feel like everyone can get out of whatever situation they may be in,” says Take1. “I won when people said I couldn’t make it,” he concludes. By the sound of this single, ambition and Take1 make a good duo. Take1’s desire for a classic project seems like a primary concern of his, and on this single, he’s taken to conquering the sounds of the past, as well as those of the future, looking to insert himself onto the top underground rap tier by any means necessary.

Take1 has one of the best new voices in rap – a resonant blare capable of cutting through anything. The rapper sounds like someone who has encountered and overcome enough adversity and naysaying before and during his music career to never have such words attached to his name.

Instead of being broken by the many negative odds we face in life, he takes the sour with the sweet, hustles against the odds, and now is ready prosper with the inspiring sound of “On Ya Mark”.

There are no bars or beef separating the symbol of hope from being rightfully uplifted by his own strong will. Hearing Take1 be so candid about life’s uplifting experiences from his vantage point is refreshing. This beat is a groove. So infectious. My head was nodding and my shoulders were shimmying all the way through.

The knock is irresistible, as Take1 bounces all over the rhythm. He sounds as if he is great at making records that are perfect for clubs and house parties, but also could play easily through a set of personal earbuds while chilling.

You’ll love the vibe Take1 sets throughout the single. This is such a well-constructed record. Fluid, rhythmic, and impactful, the energy is kept high, while Take1’s verbose exuberance will hold your attention. “On Ya Mark” is thrust forward by Take1’s sense of purpose and righteous self-pride, as it brims with the spirit of a crusader.

He raps loudly and passionately. Take1 devotes plenty of time reveling in the spoils of victory, which comprise the track’s emotional core and contain its most indelible moments. The rapper seems zeroed in, and he has a very clear purpose. He doesn’t let a bar go to waste and features some smart lines.

If the quality of the music on his upcoming project, “Calculated Chances”, matches what is present on “On Ya Mark”, Take1 will triumphantly cement the coming of his star.

The single, “On Ya Mark” is available on all major platforms. Stream his music and connect with him on his social media.

Rolando Sepulveda goes by the moniker of R3. The R comes from the first letter of his name while the 3 comes from the number he wore when playing sports. Rolando was born and raised in Edinburg, Texas a town down in south Texas in the Rio Grande Valley. Currently working on his EP “LIFE”, set to drop during the month of May 2020 under the Damn It Boy Music imprint, R3has released the lead single “Let Go” ft. Breanna Marin, written for a close friend who passed away.

Hip-hop has been cranking out living-it-up bangers for decades, but the average hip-hop head is aware that serious introspection and emotional thoughts aren’t a foreign concept for the game.

The gloominess feels natural for a culture that grew out of urban plight and the trauma of impoverished people of color; it makes sense that at least some of the genre’s songs should reflect misfortunes and their lasting effects on the psyche. Hence the soulful sad sound of “Let Go”, is especially captivating to the ear.

Sometimes we may be suffering the same emotions and need someone to talk us through why we’re feeling these feelings. R3’s laidback conversational voice attentively talks us through the feeling of loss, while the stunning Breanna Marin backs him up with an extremely poignant hook.

Many other rappers have embraced loss and vulnerability in past years, even when male emotional introspection wasn’t part of the dominant narrative. Today we have sub-genres like emo-rap that is awash with sadness and pain, but it’s still hard to find old-school rappers who trade in emotional rap.

R3 shows us it’s perfectly possible on “Let Go”, which blends old school flavors and new wave trends. R3’s distinctly unobtrusive flow comes with a sensitive quality, so he has no trouble selling the emotion at the core of his song. The result is a wrenching set of bars that never falls into the pits of melodramatic grief.

R3 paints the verses with straightforward, transparent revelations about the loss of a friend. It draws a deep personal unhappiness into focus, but Breanna’s hook, reminds us that sometimes we need to let go. Rapped over haunted piano plunks and a driving drumbeat, the song is particularly affecting, because the level of detail shows that R3 is truly spilling a piece of himself.

It is a reminder that there’s a human struggle at the center of it all. As someone who grew up listening to the hyper-masculine hip-hop of the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, I’m struck when I hear today’s rappers, like R3, speaking openly about their vulnerabilities.

With hip-hop still the reigning king of mainstream music, introspective lyrics like those found on “Let Go” are working their way into the genre’s latest hits. R3’s lyrical content surfaces his inner struggles with loss, and tells hip-hop practitioners and listeners alike that it’s okay to examine and detail your inner feelings. The song is a constant reminder that life is sacred, and anyone can go at any time, and that at some time we’ll need to “Let Go”.

Radio Club – “Hope You Doin Bad” – manufactured to chart as high as possible! http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/radio-club-hope-you-doin-bad-manufactured-to-chart-as-high-as-possible http://jamsphere.com/newreleases/radio-club-hope-you-doin-bad-manufactured-to-chart-as-high-as-possible#respond Mon, 09 Mar 2020 18:07:39 +0000 http://jamsphere.com/?p=38758 Radio Club is a Hip-Hop Group composed of Sunny B and James Duer from Northern California, mostly in Sacramento and the Bay Area.

Radio Club is a Hip-Hop Group composed of Sunny B and James Duer from Northern California, mostly in Sacramento and the Bay Area. On their latest single, “Hope You Doin Bad” we hear the duo’s strongest, most polished melodies on display, while the record feels manufactured to chart as high as possible. The song’s clever lyrics also enhances what Radio Club do best. The vocals croon infectiously, over beautifully tender piano, and with lines that elicit emotional connection. The inventive melody is consistently present and strengthened even more by Radio Club knack for hooks. All of which proves to be compelling enough to keep you engaged.

“Hope You Doin Bad” is sure to guarantee high-impact riches. Radio Club’s poppy touch and cross-genre deftness tell a similar story to those of their more popular peers, whose own crooning, and pop-friendly sounds have propelled them to the top of the hip-hop food chain. Radio Club is making a strong case for a similar lane, albeit less riddled with overwhelming angst, crocodile tears and Styrofoam cups.

As long as this generation still craves the consumption for emotional and relatable lyrics on top of gritty and trap inspired beats, I think Radio Club will be staying around for a while. Being a sucker for this genre of music is pretty mainstream in this generation, and the song can easily be solidified as a potential hit. It seems most appealing to the public ear with its excruciatingly catchy hook, “Hope You Doin Bad”. I can’t lie, I love the song.

Not only is it catchy and I think Radio Club did an amazing job with just about every aspect of the song – the production, the arrangement, the lyrics and the vocals. If you aren’t a fan of songs about relationships – good or bad – this might be a great place to start. Especially if you’re the vindictive type. The smooth and soulful vocals go along great with the sleek and creative wordplay, in an onslaught of pure emotion whose sincerity is never in question.

Hope You Doin Bad” is calculated enough and stream-of-consciousness enough to serve as the prototypical Radio Club vibe. It’s an ode to a love depression that worms its way into your head by the insidious melody, and also through the slamming beat, and by sheer blunt force.

At any point along this song, you’re fully aware that this is quality music on any objective scale. When Radio Club lean fully into their inner affecting crooner style, as they do on “Hope You Doin Bad”, it yields one of the catchiest tracks and strongest melodies of the new year so far.

“Get It In While You Can,” by Stephanie Harris and Patrick Peyton is a dance record that makes you sing, dance and laugh. It also reminds you to love, pray and forgive. With lyrics by Stephanie Harris and Music by Patrick Peyton, this tune is great for parties, birthdays, nightclubs and picnics. It has that Washington, D.C. rhythm and beat, to an R&B and soul sound. The instant the groove hits, with its funky shuffle and reverb-heavy snappy snares, you knew this is a song that will drag many to the dance floor. The track has a swagger to it that is as much about the groove as it is about the energetic vocal delivery. Giving a plenty of attitude to the track, the singer owns the lyrics and gives each word more gravitas.

The cover artwork

The stacked backing vocals in the pre-chorus pull you in and delivers on the chorus as well. It allows the singer to put his charm and bag of fiery vocal tricks to good use. The joyous, feel-good track is all bright and bouncy with the vocals filling out the driving arrangement.

“Get It In While You Can” possesses the ability to get your head bobbing and feet yearning to bust out the running man. Musically, Patrick Peyton made sure that this is track far removed from the current, standard by-the-numbers dance fare that is being offered by the dozen at the time.

Patrick Peyton is started playing drums around the age of eleven, and began writing songs during his later years in high school. A competent all-round percussionist, after high school Peyton started acquiring studio equipment, while working at a guitar center. He took an audio engineering course and developed an interest in music production.

Throughout the years, he worked as a drummer and has worked with various local DMV artists to produce music. He has his own imprint – Peysonic Music, LLC., through which he continues to release music and collaborate with and assist others in realizing their own musical ambitions.

Patrick Peyton

Infectious and a real party starter, “Get It In While You Can” keeps the energy high as the singer proclaims: “Oh…Get it in while you can, cause life’s too short. You feel me!” From the bridge to the verses and of course the hook, this song is earworm danceability at its best – a true stomper. A

ll-round the track has a great beat and bass line, with some cutting edge enhancements, and defiantly strong vocals. When it comes to dance tracks, it seems like we’ve heard a thousand versions of the same clones. Some are so many paint-by-the-numbers dance tracks that they feel like a retreads, with little to no adventure or creativity.

This inspirational dance single, “Get It In While You Can,” is not one of those aforementioned tunes. It’s a lively, celebratory track full of soul and rhythm, with powerfully stirring vocal as well as some motivational lyrics.

The creativity of Stephanie Harris and Patrick Peyton, together with their musical crew and star vocals will command your attention from start to finish, with soulful swagger and funky spice. Your ears and feet will be grateful for this groovy gift!

A former lawyer and convicted felon, Pastor Ayu is a Gospel Trap artist, and current pastor. The hip-hop artist and producer is busy crafting positive rap music based on how he turned his life around by putting his faith in Jesus Christ. His EP “Pray It To Existence” dropped at the beginning of March, while the full-length album of the same name will be released during the summer of 2020. This 4 track EP is the perfect preview to the upcoming project which will cover afflicting issues Pastor Ayu has suffered, such as unemployment, incarceration, divorce, poverty, child custody battles, and other challenging obstacles, as well as how his faith has, and is, assisting him through those complications.

Pastor Ayu is one of the most creative rappers, let alone Christian rappers, there is out there. He doesn’t compromise his beliefs for the comfort of the world. He is lyrically gifted and creative with his delivery styles. In this concise collection of songs, Pastor Ayu touches on so many topics, telling the audience that they should change their way of living and surrender their lives to the Lord. If you have faith, I really encourage you to get this EP, it’s going to change your perspective on how you envision things in your life.

Pastor Ayu

Right from when the recording opens with the first track, “R&D Intake Intro”, Pastor Ayu transparently displays his struggles and how the Gospel carries him through those trials. This work is by far one of the best Gospel Rap recordings albums of the year. And it is rich in theology,without being preachy.

Leaning and trusting on the Lord despite difficulties. By the time we press play on the second track, “Gang-Gang”, it’s clear that Pastor Ayu is very inspirational without neglecting any of the craft that makes rappers fully competent and resonant. The production is solid with Pastor Ayu bringing fresh rhyme schemes and flows to each verse.

“Holy Ghost Music” comes in on an atmospheric backdrop with sweet flutes blowing above the beat and bass drop. Pastor Ayu paints pictures with his lyrics and just has something about him that makes you connect with this song.

The talented rapper isn’t content to copy something popular from the radio, but strives for originality at every turn. Pastor Ayu doesn’t mess around: he shares his thoughts plainly. Mixing hard-hitting theology with real life application and consistently tight production.

“Face 2 Face” is an introspective search for God in the midst of struggling with an issue: “I wanna talk to my God face to face, face to face, face to face, as a man when he speaking to his friend,” raps Pastor Ayu. His honest words are captivating and heartfelt. The song is also a tribute to Kobe Bryant.

Throughout “Pray It To Existence”, Pastor Ayu gets into details about his life, his struggles and victories and how we are blessed to be able to worship. This gives the album a certain harmony and consistency, while each song is separate from each other, yet containing similar stylistic elements. Pastor Ayu’s artistry and perseverance in life through faith, is present in every song.

The nine track album, “Lenox Ave” by OHENE, is described as an ode to Harlem, pre and post gentrification. It is about the optimism, the vantage point, the inner turmoil and subsequent change of a man in his natural habitat. “This mixtape means a lot to me because it represents my return to my roots,” says OHENE. “Tough times built a tough person.” Besides his big and small-screen credits, Actor and Musician OHENE CORNELIUS has opened for Das Racist, Danny Brown, and BK Wildlife among others. He is the owner of the lifestyle and culture brand, HARLEM RIVER YACHT CLUB, and is also garnering attention for his comedy show SmokesNJokes.

OHENE’s verses are poetic and methodical, with meaning to every line, as the album details his earlier life and origins, as well as the joys, ambitions, fear and stress of growing up as a black man in Harlem during the nineties. This is quite literally one of the most brilliant hip-hop recordings I have heard in the last few years.

Every listen reveals another layer of lyrical and musical intricacy. Although we’re in a dismal era of the genre currently, this could be one of those instant classics. OHENE gets well thought out ideas through his songs in innovative ways.

OHENE’s most mesmerizing skill is telescoping between macro observations and close-ups on himself and his community, something he does with incredible power all throughout “Lenox Ave”. The complexity of its vision, shows an artist on a creative peak.

As you fully absorb the album’s production science, its textural depths, and its ever-evolving balance of personal and political metaphors from the heart of Harlem, you can’t help thinking that the scope here is much grander than its setting.

From the moment the album opens with “Let’s Go Harlem”, significant tracks place OHENE’s scintillating verbal skills front and center, as he boggles with his capacity for reflection, his ability to fuse black music’s past with its next generation.

Reflective about his place in the world, as a black man, and as an American, OHENE whips through a set of thought-provoking tracks – from ‘Healthier Squared’ (feat. Mandella Eskia) and ‘40 Acres’ (feat. Sidney Fenix, Phantm Phuego & Vic Levert) to ‘Talk My’ (feat. Paco the G Train Bandit) and ‘Believe in Love’ (feat. Sol Rebel), these tracks place OHENE firmly in the pantheon of top-tier conscious emcees.

Plush synths and stuttering drumbeats meet booming basslines, shimmering jazzy pianos and eloquent soulful vocals, as the mixtape’s features add dynamism and variety to an all-embracing sound. Combing the personal with the political in stunning fashion, OHENE turns Harlem’s woes into moments of pride, personal growth and self-reflection.

‘Need You Remix’ (Miss Dukes feat. Ohene) presents a moment of sheer rhythmic elation, before OHENE turns it down a notch on the head-nodding ‘Glo Up’ (feat. Paco the G Train Bandit). The tightly constructed rhymes will keep you locked in.

Listening along to the soulful ‘Coming Around’ (feat. Vic Levert) as OHENE flips syllables as quickly as the ear can catch them is a joy, and the creative storytelling carried out in his shifting flows feels satisfying and complete. ‘Sky Diver’ (Kassa Overall feat. Ohene) comes through passionately and unflinchingly, rolling out like a futuristic parable on growling synths and sprawling pianos.

As a storyteller and craftsman of a highly conceptualized album, OHENE speaks frankly about his world, at the same time illustrating how it related to the rest of America. In the music of OHENE CORNELIUS, we’ve got a lot to learn about the past, the present, and especially the future. Over time many things will change, yet somehow others remain intrinsically the same…

Joe Dirrt is a hip-hop artist coming out of Los Angeles, Ca who originated from the heart of Buffalo, New York. His style embraces both the rampantly smooth Cali flow, and hard hitting east coast lyricism. Joe gives us a full serving of his talents on the 12 track album, “Before The Fame”. It’s a testament to the independent grind he employs to cultivate a dedicated fan-base. Joe’s rhymes are designed to string out little observations until they form a big idea. His wordplay don’t only connect or make sense in sequence but they can create powerful impressions.

From that moment, I put a peripheral scope on this album, all the while taking time here and there to dig into his other work. What I found floored me. The level of craftsmanship exhibited by Joe Dirrt in every recording was astonishing.

The opening track “Boss” kicks off the album with hard-hitting, classic hip-hop vibes. Joe starts rapping with tenacity from the get-go. The forceful delivery, the professional wordplay, the polished vocabulary sprinkled with tasteful slang; his first bars quickly left an impression on me.

Right after the first track comes one of my personal favorite tracks off the album, “Shape” This particular track sounds like a classic trunk-thumper you would hear banging out a system from a low-rider. “More Then Music Freestyle” brings a breeze of soulful piano melody, over which Joe Dirrt drops lyrical fire.

Joe crafts another absolute mid-tempo banger with “Stuck”, which not only distinguishes himself from many other new generation rappers, lyrically as well as sonically, but actually highlights the reality that overall he is completely different than these other rappers out here.

Some of the album’s other highlights include the track “The Declaration” which features Rothstein coming together to craft a smooth ride-out groove of lyricism and soulful delivery, as well as “I’m Livin” where Joe Dirrt cuts through the beat with concise authority and genuine proficiency in his craft.

Moving forward we find “Beat Bully” where Joe architects his story in a very inspiring way. It’s easy to notice the diverse production angles that Joe is taking throughout the entire album, and “If”, with its jazzy piano driven soundscape again sets a beautifully different tone.

The production of “December” incorporates the traditional head-nodding-style vibration, where Joe flaunts and emphasizes the respect that has to be earned in the streets. “No Matter What (Ft. M.I.L.)” slaps hard, with an adrenalin pumping energy.

Joe spits some lavish spiritually-affected talk on “Forgive Me”, as he moves into another frequency.  Each of these aforementioned tracks represent Joe Dirrt’s sound in a nutshell, and clearly displays his mentality, and maturity. Each of these songs are amazing pieces of aural art that describe Joe’s life experiences in some way.

Joe Dirrt provides great detail in this album, and really shows what he is made of, which may surprise many people. One thing that he does really well throughout this recording, is keep his momentum going. “Before The Fame” is an album that shows us the work Joe Dirrt has put in, and more importantly, what is expected to come next.

Haitian-American singer-songwriter, Natalie Jean has earned innumerous award nominations, including a 2019 Global Music Awards Medal and was a 2019 Josie Music Awards Winner. A voting Member in the Recording Academy (GRAMMYS), Jean has already released 5 albums and countless singles, many of which focus their attention on empowering and enlightening people. Her ideals, morals, and aspirations run rife throughout her music. Natalie Jean’s latest album “Where Do We Go From Here” begins with a bold statement. The opening song is called “I Told You No” – and explains the artist’s shocking real-life experience of sexual assault. “I made it my first song, because I believed it to be impactful and the most shocking. I wanted others to feel what it is like to be assaulted,” says Natalie. “Some people think that it is the woman’s fault—if they had just done something different or worn something different.”

There is something to be said for Natalie Jean’s beautiful writing and emotional voice here, while the song solidly sets the stage for an emotional bag of issues that bother and affect Natalie, and in general afflict the world at large. The album no doubt, continues the pop powerhouse’s evolution as a raw, honest artist.

She consistently delivers amazing music that stays with me long after my first listening, and things are no different on this album. Many fans will be touched by the contrasts of Natalie Jean’s vulnerability and strengths in this album and praise it for this reason.

Some of my favorite things about Natalie’s work are her mixture of heartfelt lyrics and catchy melodies. “Where Do We Go From Here” delivers undeniably beautiful lyrics, while the music complements them in no uncertain terms.

“Heroes” affronts the theme of gun violence and the impact it has on the lives of children. “A child should be the living the life of a child, not trying to save someone else’s life,” warns Natalie. But she openly discusses everything that has pained and tested her throughout her life, and in “I Am” reflects deeply on how we are superficially judged on the color of our skin.

Natalie returns to the theme of violence on “Numb” and discusses how we’ve become so accustomed to its occurrence that we remain totally indifferent. Wrapped in a driving rhythm, “This House” – co-written with Michael Peloso – looks cuttingly towards the White House and the immigration system.

“Tired” takes stock of everything in this world that desperately fatigues Natalie’s human sensibilities. Moving forward, we find “Mother Earth”, a track that dissects our behavior towards an eco-system in dire need of a different human attitude.

Natalie points her focus towards homeless veterans on “The Forgotten”, and then swiftly switches her attention to female empowerment on “We Rise”. Uncompromising and unstoppable she moves from issue to the next, weaving what slowly seems to become a sort of concept album. Written with Darick Dds Spears, the slow burn of “We Kneel” seeks to throw light on why people are kneeling at football games.

Included into the album are 5 previously written songs that have been revisited in some way to give them a new slant. Among them, the powerful anthem, “What Would You Do For Love?”; “Hands Up” – another look into gun violence against Afro-Americans; “You Don’t Know Me” which ponders the question of shallow relationships; “Love Your Own Power” is clear in its female empowerment – “There’ll be those who will say that you’re just not enough. Keep moving ahead. Love your own power.” Finally, “The Letting Go” is about setting your differences aside, letting go, and starting anew.

All things considered, “Where Do We Go From Here” is a perfect album from an exceptional artist. It is at times a raw autobiographical portrait, and at others, an amalgamation of analysis, rage, and growth in a collapsing and hostile world.  Natalie Jean’s singing has a pleading tone and raspy edges, and it’s growing more expressive with each release.

Natalie demonstrates an abundance of lyrical confidence, resulting in an album with real drama and humanity. Given a bigger platform and increased attention, Natalie Jean is ready to rise to any occasion. I have a feeling she knows exactly where she wants to go from here!
