King F.L.O “The Five” Video

New York’s own King F.L.O releases visuals for his new single “The Five.”

The lyrical assassin wastes no time going in and putting folks on blast. His lyrical antics vividly describe times when he was down and out, facing death, and couldn’t even afford a loosey. But they also describe his booth reign and glow up with a very cut-throat message to those coat-tailing his shine.

The classic NY knocking bass and drums along with the gritty vibe, intensifies the bars and raw emotion spewed from King F.L.O. Watch “The Five” and connect with King F.L.O on Instagram @therealkingflo360_federal.

Arrested Development – ONYA (Single) Dedicated to Election 2020

ONYA is defined as blessed one and the sun

While the critically acclaimed, new full-length album ‘Don’t Fight Your Demons’ continues to take music entertainment by storm, Arrested Development releases a new single dedicated to the election of 2020.

“ONYA” bestows a gripping testament that only Arrested Development can justly deliver. It not only embodies distressing truths surrounding the electoral process, but it depicts racial irony in a stunning, yet tangible manner. “Us blacks should sell confederate flags to red necks. Get rich it’s the ultimate in payback”!

Steering its way through mind-blowing lyrics is hope. Hope that a brighter future can exist. “See life in color again, see wife as lover and friend, see God as giver not taker, sacred in making me win, sunny without the blues, money without abuse, honey I’m home, in a zone let’s make it do what it do”!

Over cinematic production that pulsates rigorously through the core, the 2x Grammy Award-winning group delivers yet another timely masterpiece not only for music history but also for brothers and sisters to embrace worldwide.

Elijah Rosario – Unorthodox Being

The debut of this artist was a shame to miss. In 2019 Elijah Rosario the star of Raleigh North Carolina put out his awaited EP Unorthodoxed being. This compilation is the perfect blend of the R&B and Hip Hop. For many it can remind one  of the combination of T-Pain and Chris brown  and T-Pain when T-Pain put together  The Best Love Song.

While we have seen Elijah Rosario as a singer/songwriter we have seen his lyrical versatility in this project, you hear the versatility in the track been here featuring Shogun.  From talking about making the bag and being on top he talks to the ladies in Drop It Low featuring Voyce giving us the strip club pop vibe. What caught our attention was the difference in the beat selection as the beat to focus, gives us the latin guitar strumming Maria Maria vibe that you can use in a club to dance with your partner. The project had nothing but consistent flows and vibes that not many people in today’s R&B has brought us now a days. It is refreshing to listen to and we suggest everyone takes a listen to this.

About Elijah Rosario

Elijah Rosario is a 26 year old R&B Artist/Singer-Songwriter/Recording Artist based out of Raleigh, North Carolina by way of Augusta, Georgia and he’s bringing that sexy and sultry R&B back! His relationship with music all started when he was only five years of age and started playing the drums in church. His love for writing began after he wrote his first love letter in the 6th grade, and judging by the reaction he received, he knew then that his words could make people feel something. He started recording vocal music in June of 2010 and has hit the ground running ever since. Artists such as Marvin Gaye, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Miguel, Rihanna, Drake and The Weeknd inspired him to pursue his passion of writing dope lyrics with beautiful instrumentation. He classifies himself as an “R&B Mood Music” type of artist. His music is upbeat, sensual, real life centric and most importantly personal. He always appreciates his lyrics being complimented by sick bass bumping through the speakers and being underlined with string instruments or piano keys. When it comes to writing he allows his palette to remain versatile.

D Prime 215 “What They Tell Us” Video

Philly’s own prolific emcee, D Prime 215 delivers more mind-blowing realities in his latest video “What They Tell Us.” The single/video, produced by Johann Sebastian, is off Prime’s latest “Sacred Mantra” EP, available on all major platforms.

“Mass media controls how many people get their news. The issue is, it’s not always accurate or close to it. When it comes to Black Folk, accurate isn’t even a thought most of the time. Negative statistics and stereotypes permeate the media as the overpowering narrative. This one-sided narrative is viewed as Gospel by those who don’t come in to contact with Black Folk on a regular basis if at all. As a Black Man, being viewed as the sum of negativity is asinine to me, as if that’s ALL we are. This record is my 2 Cents on it. I present to you “What They Tell Us.” Press Play.” – D Prime 215

The video is a simple one, just D Prime walking through his city of brotherly love. Because of his intricate wordplay and ingenious lyricism, there’s no need for gimmicks to entice viewers in. Also, a mini-film or animation, etc., would just take away from Prime’s lyrical declaration.

Prime addresses stereotypes placed on African Americans repeatedly for centuries. He also claims his human stance, free of felonies and other negative connotations. He goes on to mention that deliberately damaging advancements for African Americans must come to an end.  It makes you raise an eyebrow and wonder if others were just born jealous.  Prime delivers his revolutionary rhymes over chilling, hair-raising production blended with classic cuts and scratches. Watch “What They Tell Us” and connect with D Prime 215 and Johann Sebastian below.

About D Prime 215

In the English language, the word “Prime” is defined as “of first importance”. One could certainly say that Philadelphian emcee D Prime 215 has christened himself appropriately, as hip-hop has been of first importance in this young man’s life since he picked up a pad and pen in 2009. You can hear the warm, “golden era” sounds of J Dilla, A Tribe Called Quest and hometown heroes The Roots pulsing through his music, but with an updated, current twist. Prime’s held his own on wax with underground veterans like Reef the Lost Cauze, Hezekiah and Has-Lo, and shared the stage with heavyweight names such as Torae and Marco Polo. His approach is straightforward, his words honest, and his work ethic diligent. D Prime 215 is on a mission to create songs that stand the test of time, and with his unique blend of the old and the new, he’s sure to accomplish just that.

Amadeus360 “A Serious Problem” Ft. M.O.P. & Teflon

It takes a dominating force with animalistic instincts to run through the boroughs with vigorous, lyrical gods as M.O.P and Teflon. With a lengthy and celebrated catalog under his belt, producer Amadeus360 fits the bill!

Amadeus360 lays down an impeccable, yet gritty blueprint and enlists NY’s infamous firing squad. The combination of concrete trembling bass and pulsating tones heightens the aggressive bars. His use of intermittent cuts and scratches sends listeners into a Hip Hop induced adrenaline rush, leaving the track on repeat!  Stream “A Serious Problem” and connect with Amadeus360 on Instagram and Twitter.

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.
