Track2Track: I'm Plugged
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".
Album REview: Live From Trytan
"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.
IT WAS WRITTEN QUINCEY...
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.
