54 seconds in to the video a piano starts to play as a polarizing voice spits: “Dreads swingin’ like Quick Tillis, I ain’t got no patience for you bitch niggas...” As the voice continues to rap the camera zooms out to a wide shot of white marble floors and tall luxurious white ceilings. The voice is none other than St. Domonick, an independent artist from Tulsa, Oklahoma. With the release of his new project #SSS (short for Santos Swim School) St. Domonick is seeing that the hard work, the long hours, and the attention to detail is paying off. The song playing in the video is called “In my mind” which is the 7th song on the project and sticks out on the project as a break from the more uptempo tracks to a deeply reflective, yet conversational feel to it. This is the St. Domonick which has been seen on some of his previous projects such as “ORPHIC”, which it shows that there's more to the artist than the first glance.
But as the song plays a phone rings. And St. Domonick stops to answer. A voice yells: “Dom Where the fuccin tape nigga?" This line is further expanded by St. Domonick in the full version of the song which details using a Menace II Society quote to emphasize the point that his fans have been waiting.
“My fans like Larenz Tate nigga.
The video immediately jumps back into “Track 4” which is the 3rd track off the album to a more upbeat charismatic St. Domonick who makes the city his playground. Read more about Track 4 on my guest post here: Track 4 Review

Few people have mastered their sound like Hakeem Eli'juwon. He has a disctinct voice that stands out even on tracks that aren't even his. So it's only right that anyone that raps on his track is able to standout as well, and that's exactly what Bezel 365 does on the track "I'm Plugged".
"Me found Bravery in my Bravado" this bar is taken from Kanye West's track "Dark Fantasy" which appears on his album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy". But this bar also perfectly describes "TheGRAE" an artist from Tulsa, Oklahoma who with the release of his recent project "Live From Trytan" is looking to leave the same if not greater mark than his icon Kanye. Comparing the the two it's easy to see why Kanye West is one of TheGRAE's biggest influences, Especially after realizing that both are producers turned rappers/artists, and both come from a city where the odds of making it out of those city limits are greatly against them.
On February 3rd Lacy Park hosted an event called the "5th Annual Black Wall Street Heritage & History Festival". It was Black Excellence at it's finest and it showed glimpses of the old Black Wall Street, the same Black Wall Street that is needed more now than ever. The concept of the "Black dollar" circulating around a community and seeing one purchase be the seed to a community that has been left barren after the destruction of what was once a thriving land.
The shores of Tulsa are often calm. Quiet. Unbothered. Except for one surfer named St. Domonick, who with his recent release #SSS has been making some major waves. Short for "Santos Swimming School", #SSS is an inside look into a more braggadocios St. Domonick whose love for 90s nostalgia and culture can be felt throughout the project.
The 2004 Detroit Pistons won the NBA championship with arguably the greatest back court of all time Chauncey Billups and Richard Hamilton. Chauncey ran the court and saw the plays developing before they even happened, while Richard out worked everyone on the court. But what truly made this duo so great was the magic they created when both were on the court. They knew their game and they played it well. Two rappers Dial Tone and Hakeem Eli'juwon are reminiscent of this duo on their track 'Get On Up'.
I know what your thinking damn..... Why would you do that? Why invest in crypto? It's speculative..... I say fuck you it's my money. Or in more laymen’s turns, I am only invest whatever feels comfortable to ME. Not a penny more. So let's get to the fucking story already.
Plus it's plenty of rappers investing in crypto right now like; Future, DJ Khalid, and a rapper who is all about his business Nipsey Hussle. Who went to a city in Amsterdam that is cryto friendly. Crazy...
In this new digital age of content, music, and media it can be easy to be left behind. There are so many new artists and so many new albums that drop in one season. This makes it almost impossible to consume it all, let a lone choose an album of the year. Even more is the fact that there are so many variations of a release such as; singles, EP, LP, album, mixtape, compilation, greatest hits, and most recently playlist. And with all these variations and new content being dropped it's easy to see how an artist can feel the pressure to release new music. This has been even more of a concern now that artists now can push a button and have content pushed out to millions of listeners. But what happens if the pressure is too much and that album you promised and have been promoting for 3 months gets pushed back? Here's a few examples:
The Otsutsuki Brothers are back! You know Norega and Omelli. This time they are dropping a visual to their smash hit Fast Cars (read our review here.) This song has definitely become a fan favorite and the energy from this track is undeniable, especially in the club. So it was only right that the Otsutsuki Brothers drop a visual for this record.
