Kohn x Steve Sxaks ‘Light at the End’ Album

Philly based MC/producer duo of Kohn and Steve Sxaks return with a diverse, generational fused project titled ‘Light At The End.’  The 11-track album features Reub Boy, BellaBlu, 3T3N, Biz Mighty, Joe White, and Marrissa Joy.

Sxaks shows off his impeccably mastered production skills while Kohn delivers quick-witted wordplay, classic storytelling, and at times hits you with ‘in your face’ lyrical bombs. “Wanna Ride” offers listeners a laid-back vibe of R&B blends mixed with modern cadences. However, don’t get lost in hypnosis as “Goldar” picks up the pace with distinct striking sounds that heighten Kohn’s Trap flow. “Pay Up” is a catchy track, one that can be heard blaring anthem style. With no co-sign needed Kohn is securing bags while he levels up.

The album continues to intensify with “Shrimp Scampi.” Kohn’s zany flow and raw wordplay are magnified over a multi-genre mosh pit of fervid soundscapes. In “Replay” Kohn describes how life epitomes the redundancies of Groundhog Day but switches up yet again in “Fried Okra.” Over classic meets latter-day tones, Kohn spews authentic and animated lyricism for a throwback vibe.

“Bar Crawl” is the action-packed big screen track of the album with three minutes of raw lyrical sirens setting off a state of suspense and hair-raising chills. Once again, the mood shifts in “Palm Trees.” The sounds of striking drums serve as the heart of the track and magnify Kohn’s simple message of being ahead of the game as a heavyweight while other’s pen game is featherweight.

The duo impresses the ladies in “Pad Thai” and offers plenty of play to get them in the mood, and with a smooth soulful vibe, they don’t miss a beat. “Turn Around” is a track about constantly feeling on edge from a misled relationship. Kohn embodies the all too familiar tale through innovative storytelling.

To finalize the album, and in an attempt to spread a message near and far, from childhood to adulthood, from rich and poor, from every color in the rainbow; Kohn delivers countless gems in “Light At The End” about being true to what you believe no matter what.

F Money – Talk To Me

Near-death experience gives young musician new outlook on life

SOUTH FLORIDA – A lot of things changed for Felipe Marquez on the day his car was hit by someone going 92 miles per hour in a 45-mph zone.

It’s cliché to say his life flashed before his eyes but that’s exactly what happened to him. He’d been homeless for about three years, living in his car and using that vehicle to make money as a driver for a ride-share company. Like any other day, he was picking up fares and was on his way to pick up a passenger when he was struck at top speed by someone going more than double the speed limit. He was fortunate to survive and all things considered, escaped from the accident better off than he could have ever hoped for. After two surgeries and a week in the hospital, he’s spent the past few months recovering from multiple injuries. He still hasn’t regained nerve sensation in his left thigh or shoulder, but everything else is back in working order. And the settlement from the accident has given him something he’s never had before: the financial freedom to pursue his dreams.

And that’s exactly what he’s doing. When your life is mere milliseconds from being snuffed out, you can’t help but realize there’s only a finite amount of time on this earth and if you ever want to realize your dreams, you better do it now while you still can. For Felipe, his dream has been to be a professional musician for as long as he can remember. And so for the past few months, he’s been pursuing that dream with a passion. He adopted the stage name F Money and has been exploring his unique sound and style through music that he says is inspired by affection for a very specific woman in his life.

“The theme of my rapping is about the woman I love,” he said. “In college, she decided to call herself C Money and so I said I’d call myself F Money, which is a play off of both our first initials. After the car accident, I’ve had a lot of time to think about what I want to do with my life. I love music, and I love C Money, and so I decided to start making music about the person I love the most. I’ve been given the freedom to do almost anything I want now, and I’m going to make the most of that opportunity.”

His first foray into the industry comes by way of a single called “Talk To Me.” It’s a club-ready aggressive rap song with a fun tone to it. He said it tells the story of a period of his life shortly after he had been evicted from his first apartment and had just started living in his car. 

“I received a message from the woman I had loved through a mutual friend, and they told me she was a lesbian now,” he said. “I had been sending her money and gifts and she kept turning me down, and now I was living in my car and I found that out. So this song was born from the things I wanted to say then, though in a more poetic way. Most of the lyrics I use in it have been used in other Hip Hop songs in various contextual ways but in my case, they have a specific reference to her. For instance, when someone else says ‘water’ in their songs, they might be talking about jewelry. But when I use it in this song, for me it’s a metaphor for crying. I’m using imagery like purple and yellow colors, as metaphors for our feelings and personalities. And in some ways, I’m just showing off and having fun with the debauchery of it all.”

F Money said he hopes people will be able to connect to his music not only because they, too, have experienced similar relationship entanglements, but also because they recognize a young man who has struggled in life and who is attempting to make the most of his opportunities. 

“I want to be seen as somebody who is making music and who has a back story that people can be inspired by,” he said. “I’m a kid from south Florida who was ingrained in Hip Hop from a young age by sitting in his bedroom listening to Hip Hop music. And now I’m someone who has decided to take on the characteristics of that Hip Hop genre to gain the affection of a woman I desire.”
