Kony Brooks looks to end the Hate in Three Fifths Video

When artists come to you to help bring their stories and visions to a positive light it is truly an honor. Their voices are silenced on a day to day basis by  negativity of the INDIEstry and the societal pressures bestowed upon us, many artists are scared to speak their truth, except for one. In the duration of time that I know him Kony has always looked to teach us something through his words and his actions. If you personally know Kony Brooks he seriously cares about people and the community around him. His video for Three Fifths continues to show us a special message, with the events surrounding Nipsey Hustle’s death we must start to be mutually mindful of each other and stop the hate.

The video starts and ends with Kony , Scorpio P. and a young gentleman being pressed up against the wall by cops.  One of the cops were played by singer songstress Julz.

Kony tells us a story the day to day story we see everyday of the segregation and the racism not only within our culture but with community. Young men struggling to make ends meat by stealing and hustling, while there are some with their day to day jobs trying to live their lives as uncomplicated as possible. Kony plays the guidance counselor to the young boy hustling in the streets trying to steer him in the right directions so he does not end up like many others that have came before them.  With cameos by Scorpio P. and Ray Fame the other scene shows the hardworking black man trying to make ends meet and still getting short changed with Kony being the words of wisdom to keep pushing and fighting.

After watching this it makes me ask these questions, why are we hating each other, why does it take someone to die or to get arrested to make a statement. Why are we screaming free our brothers after they are gone but they were talking shit when they were walking with us. We are supposed to love each other and be a community. Why cant we stop the hate and violence, we are killing our own kind we are killing others. Kony is showing us we should fight through the hate. This video is one of my favorite videos from him and I am honored to have had the chance to see this and give my thoughts as he releases this to the world.

TFT – Lenox Ave

Identical twins combine musical talent to make TFT

ATLANTA, GA – There are regions of the world that have identifiable “sounds” or sub-genres of music. There’s West Coast hip-hop, Atlanta trap and Chicago drill. New York is no different, but the young identical twins from Brooklyn who make up the group TFT are on the forefront of creating a new sound and style for New York. Their fusion of lyricism and drilling trap beats is showcased perfectly on their new song “Lenox Ave.”

Described as a song that “everybody can play wherever they are – in a car, the club or at home,” “Lenox Ave” has the perfect kind of vibe for kicking back and enjoying life. It’s lyrics pull from the twin brothers’ life experiences and connect with fans not only through shared stories, but also through the universal language of music.

Born in 1994, these identical twins have always been close. Growing up, their mother used to listen to music all the time, and they would often watch BET to find even more music. They recall writing lyrics pretty much as soon as they were old enough to know how to write, and even before that were turning their nursery rhymes into rap hymns. Her mother encouraged their love for music, and taught them how to mix music. She was a DJ for a time, and always made a point to educate her children about music by showing them musical legends to study – such as Big Daddy Kane, Nas, Boogie Down Production, Tupac, Wu Tang, Queen Latifah and more.

At the age of 20, the brothers had collaborated on enough music to put out their first release – a demo called “Twin Takeover.” That was the start of a professional career that has taken off in the years since, and now they’re ready to take that next big leap forward.

In addition to “Lenox Ave,” TFT is also ready to release a single called “The World.” True to its name, it’s a song that explores how the brothers feel about the world and how people are looking at them now. Due to drop before the end of March, the song features straight lyrics and bars in a way that will make listeners want to nod their heads. And more than anything, at the end of the day the brothers say they hope people will see them as great lyricists who make great hip-hop music.
