#RawrrAlbums : We see XYLE’s musical alter ego in Intoxicated Thoughts

We thought we saw it all from the Queens MC when he put out Full Moon. We saw the raw passion and the many sexual innuendos in Full Moon . We heard the raw heavy beats, the love crazy bars, the barfights, and the reason women wonder now about his fingerprints. But once again XYLE surprises us with the versatility of his artistry when he takes over with the chill beats in Intoxicated Thoughts. With that name you leave it all to curiosity not only about his music but who the young rapper really is.


The impressive part of the production of this album is it was done within the same time frame as Full Moon. The question pending from this is where did XYLE have the time or the energy to put out the two projects at once, where his motivation was in this? Although it was released and promoted now you have to applaud someone for being able to take the time and effort to put two projects at once.  As the counterpart to Full Moon , Intoxicated thoughts is different in both beat and content selection. But one thing remains the same XYLE never seizes to bring the heavy bars.

Here are our favorites here at Rawrr

  1. Conscience – with the beat resembling a moonlight sonata with a twist, XYLE talks about his feelings , and the devil and the angel , and if you push him to see what he can do.   Within this song his main desire is to be able to live his life comfortably without the harassment and the pressures of the negativity around him.
  2. Act Right – Alongside with Verse the duo retreats to the comfort ability we all know and love from XYLE.  The hard beat and bars they make their statement and put those on warning telling those to act right.
  3. Live for Me – Through the seriousness of it all we are in a society full of depression and negativity. With a country with one of the highest suicide rates, XYLE takes his stance on it although the flow is laid back and chill, XYLE presents it as if he was talking to his friend asking him to live for him if he will not live for himself. Describing what they will have to share and what they can build if he just lives for him.

If you know XYLE personally he is one of the hardest working people you will encounter. His proof is in his music, the dedication to the craft and the meaning behind each song. We suggest you pick this up and follow him at @xylenyc

In a futuristic world, a strict regime has eliminated war by suppressing emotions. Books, art and music are strictly forbidden and ‘feeling’ is a crime punishable by death. A top ranking government agent is responsible for destroying those who resist the rules. When he misses a dose of Prozium, a mind-altering drug that hinders emotion, Preston, who has been trained to enforce the strict laws of the new regime, suddenly becomes the only person capable of overthrowing it.

Chicago: Mr. Red Ceo is set to release “Expensive Taste” | @MrREDceo

“I couldn’t wait for somebody else, so I put myself on” – Mr. Red Ceo

Chicago has created some of the most successful stars in the rap game like Kanye West, Common, Twista, and Lupe Fiasco. Now Mr. Red Ceo has come to give the fans what Chicago is known for, what they expect – FIRE! Mr. Red Ceo has been on tracks with King LouieScottyZaytoven, and Belo of Do Or Die just to name a few.

Mr. Red Ceo released his first mixtape titled “Mr. Red the O.G. Hosted by Dj Holiday” in September of 2015. Since his first mixtape Mr. Red Ceo has been heavy on the grind! His main single titled “I’m a O.G. ft King Louie” charted in the top 200 songs. Mr. Red Ceo’s music has been covered on several media outlets Hip-Hop Vibe, The Hype Magazine, Music Crowns, and Holiday Season. His singles have made the cut for several Dj’s mixtapes, mix-shows, and curated playlists on Spotify. Mr. Red Ceo hit the scene, and rocked a few shows, shot some videos.

Born and raised in Chicago Illinois, Mr. Red Ceo was surrounded by music excellence. He grew up enamored with the best Hip Hop acts of the day. It was then that he decided he too could be amongst the very best. But first he had to navigate the dangerous streets of Chicago and make it out alive!

“My mom & pops made me but the streets raised me!” says Mr. Red Ceo. If you are lucky enough to spend any amount of time with Mr. Red Ceo you can see why the people relate to his music. Same as his everyday life there is a near perfect balance of power, respect, fear, and knowledge that can’t be bought, duplicated or faked! What set’s Mr. Red Ceo’s music apart is his attention to detail. While it is up front in your face and hardcore, It’s not so far-fetched that it’s unbelievable, hence the expression “bringing back the real!!!”

On parallel to being a music artist Mr. Red Ceo is also CEO of his own company Da Empire Records (hence the Ceo in his name). He’s created a credible name for himself in the Chicago music community while establishing his brand for a global market “If I was born white I’d be CEO of a fortune 500 corporation, instead you get Mr. Red C.E.O. of  the streets!” When asked what is your main objective in this business? “I wanna get rid of the impossible, and bring back the probable” –Mr. RED

Producer to Watch Dj Iceman

Over the last year Dj Iceman has been on a tear. after stepping back from djing after a 33 year run,he started making beats. since he started,he joined up with Northwest producer supergroup FFU (Filthy Fingers United) and have had song placements on 3 of their releases. he released his own beat tape and did over 70,000 on Datpiff, got signed to a small label out of Greece and released an EP,and has had over 200 up and coming rappers spit fire on one of his beats on the Rapchat app. so it looks like 2018 will hopefully be looking up for the Wu-Tang dj and Big Boss Beatz head honcho

How does it feel to have this kind of success so fast?
I really didnt expect this. im humbled and thankful.

Who are you main beatmaking influences?
There are so many. Premo,9th Wonder,Pete Rock,Snowgoons,Harry Fraud. just anybody who makes that good Boom-Bap.

What equipment do you use?
Right now i’m just using a Maschine MK2,an Akai MPK Mini keyboard and Ozone 8 for mastering.

How do you feel about the state of the industry today,especially since Boom-Bap isn’t the most marketable sound right now?
Just because its not the biggest on the charts,theres still a market for it. look how many emcees are out there doing their thing. right now it’s an amazing time to be a beatmaker. there are so many lanes out there, you don’t have to follow any wave,you can make your own wave and be successful.

So whats next?
Im hoping for a few more app placements,im thinking about releasing another beat tape,hopefully this summer. in the meantime i’m just gonna keep pumpin out good quality boom-bap
