The blend of worldly soundscapes and striking bass heighten the pivotal message delivered by the triple threat, which depicts the nationwide warfare between brothers. Instead of fighting and provoking violence, we need to unite and put our hands together. Flak Gaza’s intricate wordplay flows effortlessly over the vocal chorus igniting that NY Hip-Hop vibe.

Robert Nicklas – New Whip

Seasoned songwriter, Robert Nicklas releases new “Vibe Feelin” EP

DENVER, CO – Singer, songwriter and professional musician, Robert Nicklas is proving that hard work and perseverance pay off. He puts a tremendous amount of work into each and every one of his compositions. But not everything he writes makes it to the end of the line. A prolific songwriter, he worked up between 100 and 200 beats to get the right feel for the five songs on his latest project.

The end result of Robert’s persistence can be enjoyed on his new EP, “Vibe Feelin.” Released on April 29th of this year, the R&B tracks have a distinct Hip Hop feel, but with singing instead of rapping. The lead single, “New Whip” was born from a melody which played over and over in Robert’s head. For this track, he worked with as many as ten different beats to get the perfect fit he was after. “New Whip” falls into the mold of a radio friendly vibe he was shooting for, and the “Vibe Feelin” has a bit more of a Pop flavor than some of his previous work.

Last summer, Robert worked with experienced Atlanta-based producer, Terrius Miller, on two singles titled “More & More” and “Club Love.” Miller has worked with the likes of Chris Brown, Outkast and Destiny’s Child, and Robert’s two singles received a tremendous amount of radio play in the Atlanta market.

During the 90s, Robert Nicklas started to get serious about making his own music professionally and he released music in 2003 on the Chicago-based label, Sonic Wave International. He also went to college for piano, so his musical influences range from Beethoven, Bach, Schubert, Schumann and Chopin to Herbie Hancock, Coltrane, Miles Davis, Pat Metheny, Michael Jackson, Bobby Brown, Bell Biv Devoe and even Dr. Dre.

As a classically trained piano player, he found it challenging to play without written music at first. In his early 20s, he met a drummer whose father played saxophone with Count Basie. Robert had to forget a lot of his classical training and learned how to play music from this drummer across the room. “You have to throw everything away to be able to play from inside, rather than looking at music,” Robert said.

His taste in music is all over the place, but he mainly enjoys listening to all the new music that is trending. Listening to genres that are pushing music forward keeps Robert’s energy going. He finds that Hip Hop artists are pushing the edge of the envelope for the direction of music now, and he incorporates those elements into his songwriting.

Robert has possessed a gift for music since he was very young. By trying hard and pushing harder, Robert ends up excelling at his craft. That special feeling of joy when a new groove hits is what keeps him going, and he is constantly writing. Just a few days after dropping his new EP, Robert was straight back in the writing mode and coming up with new material to see what tasty tracks he can create next.

He was once Local Now hes BakeMan Global ALIVE is Causing A Stir and We are All About It

 

I may not be where I want to be, but I’m so far from where I used to be! A lot to be thankful for! – Bakeman Global 
Since his rise joining Para Music Group, there has not been one single person who does not know who Bakeman Global is . One thing is for sure 2019 has been the year for Bakeman.
The former basketball star who traveled the world had children waiting for him after he played is now making people wait in lines as hes shutting down the independent scene. Released on the 17th ALIVE (Adopted to Life in Various Eras) is the example of the power this man wields with his pen.

The ten song project is a musical representation of his thoughts and his life, while its cover is a symbolic representation of himself. Going off of our own opinions the statue head represents Bakeman and the Legacy he will leave once his time on this planet is up. The crack on the side of his face shows that the struggles of life are not always easy and hes continuing to prosper through life.
The lead single The Old You featuring the Hamiltones is by far one of the most creative singles I have heard in 2019. The former background vocalists for soul singer Anthony Hamilton have added their quartet styled music and RNB vibes really gave us the vibe of a Hip Hop Love Story.
Be Gone should be the anthem of 2019-2020, during our everyday struggles we encounter people that give us negative energy.  This song is dedicated to the naysayers and those that put us through nothing but grief. His aggressive approach and the production by Davincii shows us how serious he is in protecting his aura in life.
Where were You featuring Kenny Dark has us in our feelings as he is at his most vulnerable. A testament to his father he is speaking to him as he discusses what the absence of the paternal figure has left him.  As someone that lost their father at an early age you learn to feel for people that go through what you went through or similar to.
Without giving the whole project away make sure you check out ALIVE on all digital streaming platforms and follow him on ig: @bakemanglobal

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.
