Get To Know NC Lyricist Shame

As a creative lyricist, talented in the art of storytelling, Shame is bringing Hip-Hop back to its roots, while still keeping up with the evolution the genre has experienced. His inspirations come from artists such as Q-tip, Biggie Smalls, A Tribe Called Quest, Tupac, Big L, Nas, Mos Def, Eminem, and Rakim. Like many of these artists, Shame got his start to fame by competing in rap battles and distributing his music through local college radio stations.

Before his quest to conquer the music world began, Shame had to decide which parts of life were going to make or break him. Shame was born in the tough streets of Capital Heights, Maryland, however, his mother and father raised him in Landover, Maryland. Determined not to become a statistic or victim of gang violence or drugs, Shame used music to inspire and keep himself busy.

 “I got my name from my grandmother because I was hooked on the movie A Low Down Dirty Shame as a kid, but it stuck with me when I grew up in the battle rapping era. People used to say I put shame to the rappers I battled, hence, Shame.”

Shame has lived in Raleigh, NC since 2013, where he continues to create music, and dropped his first project, The Sequence, in February 2016, featuring the lead single, “Still Ballin.”

He has performed at top venues throughout the Triangle (Raleigh/ Durham/ Chapel Hill) and beyond, including, Pour House, Imurj, Kings, Deep South, The Pinhook, The Lincoln Theater, Duke Energy Center, The Ritz, and The Blind Tiger amassing new fans along the way with his high-energy stage presence and dynamic delivery. Shame has also graced the stage opening for big names such as Bone Thugs & Harmony, Twista, Dave East, Yo Gotti, Ghost Face Killah, Raekwon, Slum Village, Nappy Roots, and many more! With the new release of his break-out album Genesis 98’ in October 2018 where he speaks on life situations and touches on current events, it’s no doubt that shame will be a huge break out in the soon future.

RedRum “Mark Of Da Beast” Video

Orlando-based Hip Hop group RedRum is stomping through the scene with their new single “Mark of Da Beast” produced by Nickel Plated. Although they’re on the other side of the Atlantic, they come armed with Queens, BK, and DC roots to deliver a gully, in your face track sure to have bystanders looking over their shoulders…

Red Eye (Queens), Racks (BK), and Gamma (DC) emerge from darkness and vicious jungles to stamp the mark of da beast across the map, both in the industry and streets. Through cut-throat lyrics and menacing wordplay, the trio inflicts inescapable havoc. “6 million stories in the street n*gga don’t hustle don’t eat, I swam with the sharks and danced with the freaks, got coke from Cubans smoked with Chiefs, repeat…24/7 grind my kind don’t sleep.”

The profoundly intense production, hardcore from beginning to end, intensifies the raw emotion from RedRum. Watch “Mark Of Da Beast” and stream/download the single here on preferred platforms.

DA Donnieboy Delivers “Black and Blue” & “Burn it Up” (Videos)

 

Configaration Records announces two new video releases from their artist DA Donnieboy. “Black and Blue” is produced by Configa Beats and “Burn it Down” is produced by Fro Magnum Man (also a Configaration Records artist).

Both videos embody the harsh reality of what the norm in America has become, which is racial genocides by way of police and governmental buttons. “In Black and Blue” DA Donnieboy addresses this with cut-throat truth serum. He’s aggressive in deliverance with validated reason…Is this the land of the free or the land of the oppressed? Why are these genocides justified? Has Uncle Sam covered “your nuts up”? DA Donnieboy spits bar for bar which actually is a fact for a fact!  In “Burn it Down” he mentions the names of lives who were murdered by the hands of police while he proclaims it’s time to burn it down and rejoice in the ashes.

These video releases are taken from DA Donnieboy’s new album ‘Dreaming Azure’…”In this world filled with blues, Azure is the perfect balance between light and dark. Find your center…find your peace…even if only in your dreams.”

DA Donnieboy has aimed to create his best work to date and evidently has hit the mark. Transcend into this dose of earmilk filled with tales of motivation, friendship, self-worth, mental health, and most importantly how to stand up against racism and societal brutalities…Join the dream or wake up!

‘Dreaming Azure’ encapsulates Donnie’s inner struggle with life’s realities and trying to capture dreams of the future. His realizations, memories, and raw emotions are heightened by immaculate production and polished mixing.

Street Da’ Villan – Fast Life Ft. C.J Watson (Single)

Street Da’ Villan shares the “Fast Life” featuring C.J Watson from ‘Gran Raw Presents True Story 2’ available now on major platforms.

By the title, some might assume the track is about the fast life filled with cash, video vixens, and club hopping, however from the stance of Street Da’ Villain, the fast life refers to his grind to shine…He went from snatching wallets to counting bands in palaces. Fast cars and bright lights in big cities resonate differently when the rhymes pay.

The smooth 70’s, soulful tones along with classic Hip Hop bass and drums heightens Villan’s witty wordplay and come-up story. Stream “Fast Life” and connect with Street Da’ Villan @davillan315 on Instagram.

Priest Da Nomad x Jon Laine – Confused (Single)

Priest Da Nomad returns after his last album release ‘The Manhood Project’ with a new single release titled “Confused.”

Some might feel they know the extent of Nomad’s music, however with his latest single release “Confused” it’s quite evident he’s one MC who can’t be boxed in. He clearly conveys that message through solid, flexed-out bars.

Dre King’s horns and Jon Laine’s production intensify Nomad’s lyrical proclamation…again, don’t get confused he’s far from slippin’.

Merkabah Drops “Kiss of Judas” Visuals

Merkabah releases visuals for the lead single off his critically acclaimed ‘The Messiah Complex’ album. “Kiss of Judas” produced by Metasin Music is shot in what appears to be a run-down church filled with religious candles and Merkabah spreading the good word through lyrical wisdom.

The drum-driven track begins with an excerpt from a sermon defining the kiss of death. Merkabah then makes his entrance into the church to christen the grounds with his own lyrical scriptures. He speaks on the greazy and slimy moves of others all while they preach the name of the lord.

Merkabah is honest with his proclamation to rid demons, lies, and deceit the one way he knows and lives by…his pen and pad which serves as his sword and holy writ.
