Ceo Chino Marley ‘Dripology’ Vol 1

Birmingham Alabama’s Ceo Chino Marley released his new project Dripology Vol. 1. Entirely produced by collaborator SspikeTrap, the project is complete with features from Z Money, SlimeLife Shawty, Sonta and chicago newcomer, King Ace. The project comes fresh off the release of Chino’s “Make Em Believe” video directed by Diesel Films and “Big Smoke” ft. Slimelife Shawty, premiered via HOTNEWHIPHOP. Dripology Vol. 1 is available everywhere now.

Raised by a single mother in the trenches of Birmingham, Alabama, Marley was exposed to life’s harsh realities from an early age. His music speaks to the experiences of both falling prey and rising above these circumstances. In 2016, Marley dropped his first independent release, “Count it Up.” Shortly after, he met Canadian producer, SspikeTrap via social media. Together they began to hone in on a unique, identifiable sound. The duo’s bond is so strong, Marley likens it to that of Zaytoven & Gucci Mane. Currently cooking up a joint release with Toronto producer SspikeTrap, Marley and Sspike are poised for a burgeoning year.

Soulrac x Big Bob “Blackface” Video

Inlighten Music Group present Soulrac’s latest single/video “Blackface” of his new album ‘Soulploitation.’  “Blackface” is produced by multi-talented international producer Big Bob of Elite Sound International.

It’s been nearly 200 years since white performers first started painting their faces black to mock enslaved Africans in minstrel shows across the United States. It was racist and offensive then, and it’s still racist and offensive today. By distorting the features and culture of African Americans including their looks, language, dance, deportment, and character; white Americans were able to codify whiteness across class and geopolitical lines as its antithesis. Blackface and the codifying of blackness, language, movement, deportment, and character, like a caricature, persists through mass media and in public performances today. Join the movement by sharing the #eraseblackface hashtag on social media to bring awareness to this issue.

‘Soulploitation’ is an EP that’s reminiscent of the Golden Era of Hip Hop and the Black Power movement because it verbalizes the dilemmas we face as a society. Like the music from Blaxploitation films, it serenades its listeners with soulful and thought-provoking lyrics and music. Watch “Blackface” and connect with Soulrac below.

HIS – STORY

Soulrac (Carlos Dukes)  was born and raised in Orlando, Florida during the Golden Era of Hip Hop which influenced his musical palette and creativity. His upbringing shaped his thought process and motivated him to address the social injustices he witnessed throughout his life.  An environment where Mass Incarceration, Police Brutality, Gentrification, etc were the norm.  As a youth, he started scribbling rhymes in his notepad and rapping became a means of expression.  An expression he used when they would battle rap by freestylin during lunch and after school as a means of recreation.  Soulrac defines his music as “Music for the Soul” and his name is derived from his first name being spelled backward with an extra O.

Gmoneypayroll Drops ‘The Ghost of Biggie’ Album

Hip Hop Artist, Song Writer, and Producer Gmoneypayroll releases 20-track album entitled “The Ghost of Biggie.”

The Camden, NJ indie G.O.A.T enlists a selection of elite artists including Porta Rich, Shorty Dope, T Sabotage, Tech, Norf Boi, Twonn, Snugglez, King Shinche, Hanibul Hect, Ms Kesh, La Lito da Don, Maine Toast, See the Hustle, DJ Mista Goodbarz, Sencity Muzic, Fa-Milli, and Mistr Frazier for a polished and mastered piece of epic Hip-Hop.

“The Ghost of Biggie” gives listeners a no-skip track experience brimming with ingenious wordplay, storytelling, motion picture fused records, street, and club anthems, tributes, and of course Grade-A bars. Retro sets the album off and lets the world know that GMoney Payroll is raw, uncut, and emerged from trials and tribulations to cutting checks and celebrating success.

Counting Money Daily is Camden’s famed anthem that proves critics and statistics wrong. The underrated city holds lyrical crowns to many who collect bags not in lieu of drugs, violence, or guns, but in way of mics, stages, and wordsmith talents. In the Trenches validates the anthem and GMoney’s ability to win while treading through the trenches, moving further away from feds and closer to the prize.

I Remember, a more soulful track blended with modern cadences and chilling piano keys recalls being without, being counted out, and absorbing pain during the rain. But through it all GMoney stood tall and rose above the simple life. Life is Good piggybacks that theme, and celebrates his 24/7 grind, earned success, and even the shadow of clout chasers.

Never Go Broke justifies GMoney’s determination and motivation which is his family. His plan is simple, to devise a game plan, execute, and never look back. Lucicious Lyon exudes a cosmic vibe with a grandiose message. GMoney is far from average and refers to himself as a savage, a bad boy moving in silence while eyeing his prey.  That prey, or d*ckriders, clout chasers, and basic snakes get addressed in Say Dat. GMoney is on and ready to go, will these broke boys step up to the plate and level up?

Cuffin’ Season and Just Me & You are records for the ladies. GMoney has no qualms of wearing his heart on his sleeve for the right woman. The tracks shed hope that authentic love and blessed unions do exist. He keeps his bride on a pedestal to celebrate her realness and sticking by his side. Thank You Mom will water eyes as GMoney pays tribute to his first queen, his mother.  He credits her for molding him into the man he is today.

Fly Around Me is a fun track to get bottles poppin’, bring in the ladies, and show off flyness while the competition takes a seat on the sidelines. Bring it Back reiterates that but in more of a stern fashion. GMoney has been bossed up since younger days and as the Jersey G.O.A.T, he demands respect.  Fat People Rule, although a bit of comedic humor, pays homage to greats like Pun, Biggie, and Heavy D. Rightfully tailored and surrounded by belly chasers, GMoney shares those perks…

Subliminal although it serves as the album’s interlude, is one of the most powerful tracks. GMoney declares his stance and reign not only in the music scene but in life. His accomplishments cease all subliminal from SoundCloud rappers who mumble to earn likes and views. Crabs in a Barrell redefines GMoney’s destined path to greatness and reassures that no one can pull him down from his climb. Feeling Like Rocky intensifies his motivation. With his eyes on the tiger, he is not backtracking as it is not an option. His bars reflect laying in a hospital bed to curating billboard hits in the lab.

I’m Winning sums up GMoney’s independent success with no contract signatures. While others are declining, he is winning and while others are chilling, he is rising. Help depicts the irony of days when GMoney tried to ask for help but was left without. Today he can look back on those days while browsing through his music catalog, collecting checks, and sipping champagne with his ride or die.

“The Ghost of Biggie” is overflowing with eclectic tones, a kaleidoscope of pulsating tones, and the perfect blend of old meets new. Piano keys, thumbing bass, along with striking drums drive the album and heighten the raw emotions and top-notch lyricism from GMoney Payroll.  Stream “The Ghost of Biggie” and connect with GMoney Payroll below.

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.
