D Prime 215 x Hezekiah – Live From Hysteria Behind the Scenes Vlog

You can’t mention Philly and Hip Hop without including D Prime 215. Consistently releasing music representing 215, the superb lyricist, bestows fans with a behind the scenes look into the creation of his new single “Live from Hysteria” produced by Hezekiah. The single is taken from his critically acclaimed album ‘Forever In A Day.’

Embark on this journey compacted with rhymes and bars depicting the hysteria that surrounds Prime…no hooks needed. “Sonically, it’s a bar heavy record. When I heard the beat from Hezekiah I wanted to create something in the vein of “Making a Murderer” by Black Thought and Styles P.”

The vlog captures the process Hezekiah and Prime go through including recording variations of his vocals. He adds a dynamic twist with adlibs and different voice pitches, which for those familiar with Prime, is a step outside the box for him.

“I speak on a number of my influences from  Big Daddy Kane, Mase, KRS-One & Slick…not name dropping to be portrayed as cool or cultured.” Prime authentically mentions how they coincide with his own style and flow as a lyricist.  I want it known that I didn’t come up out of a hand. I’m influenced by the greats before me, but I’m not here to recreate the wheel. I’m carving my lane, but not afraid to pay homage…”

Watch D Prime 215 x Hezekiah’s “Live From Hysteria” in studio behind the scenes vlog 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. Stream the album here on Bandcamp and connect with the Detroit-based Hip Hop recording artist below.

Omen44 “Hate” Video Ft. Chelsea Reject

The Plug International and vetted national and international Hip Hop artist Omen44 announce the release of “Hate” the remix. The single/video is taken from Omen44’s latest critically acclaimed album ‘Hentai.’

“There is no enemy outside our soul. The real enemies live inside us. Anger, Pride, Greed, and Hate.”

Omen44, who is on a mission to display the positive side of cultural creativity and uplift American souls through music enlists Chelsea Reject for a tag-team, impeccable lyrical flow. Shot in front of NY’s famed landmarks including Coney Island and graffiti murals, the duo delivers profound wordplay all while raising the question of why humans hate other humans based on skin color, ethnicity, and culture.

It’s nearly impossible not to feel the raw emotion circling around Omen44 as he shares his story from Thailand to Japan to New York, pushing his people and his label. This video comes during a time where we as people need to take a step back and embrace the diversity that fills America with what should be love and pride, not hate and violence.

Omen44, who is noted for boom-bap cadences and DJ cuts and scratches, invites a more innovative sound with striking drums and bass that’s sure to wake the core, yet smooth enough to truly grasp his message. Watch “Hate” and connect with Omen44 and Chelsea Reject below.
