I know no name bulletproof,
The legend of the 30 dollar copy. Anyone who has been out to a hip-hop event in Tulsa lately has seen a tall bearded individual moving throughout the crowd. One by one individuals line up to greet this bearded fellow giving various handshakes and taking selfies. His jacket swaying heavily from the wrapped and concealed $30 copy. It's an amazing sight to see this bearded figure named 1st Verse make his way through the crowd. It only takes just one pause between handshakes and a swift motion to his jacket reveals the legendary $30 copy of his album VSXO. If your lucky enough to see this transaction occur be appreciative, because in this day of impersonal digital streaming 1st Verse is defying all marketing plans and is going platinum..... his way.
Diamonds on my writst and Diamonds on my hand,
Many can imitate it, but no one can duplicate the flavor that is Keeng Cut. Even Keeng Cut created a new flavor with the artist Flavio Cútatore. Coming off his album Flavio Cútatore and his EP Stay Flavored My Friend, many people wondered. Would his next album "The Flavorpiece" be a rap album? Or would it be a R&B follow-up to Flavio Cútatore? But as soon as you pressed play on the track "Stainless" let you know that this was Keeng Cut and he wasn't leaving no room for guessin'. He was spittin'.
Mode. Today Keezy Kuts has time with the recent release of his video "Mode". On the track Keezy Kuts shows off his melodic voice and proves his mastery of auto-tune as he uses this instrument to help deliver various vocal pitches and hit higher pitches. His aim is impeachable as he is able to find these pockets that accentuate his presence on the track. Even more clever is Keezy Kuts slick wordplay as he maneuvers through different rhyme schemes rolling tightly around syllables that are packed as full as his pre-rolls. It's no wonder why Keezy Kuts puts this track on his Pre-Rolled 2 project, which within itself is jam packed with hit after hit.
How do you define a time? Music. It’s the power of music that transports you to a time of memories experienced. And if not experienced you still don't have to go to far to see just how unique these experiences are. DJ Noname is an artist who is taking his unique experiences and blending them with fellow producer DJ $ir Mike to transport listeners to what can only be called “Sir Noname.”.
Have you ever made love in a penthouse (No)/
The female spitta. Possibly the hardest paths to take. You are judged by your image first, while your music is judged through a filtered len. The struggle of the female spitta is not driven by competition. Competition would mean that there would be a first, second, and third place winner. The female spitta is a ONE person race. There are no other winners, there are no other competitors. Just ONE that stands out each year, and this position is so delicate that any small mistake or slip up can mean the end of a career. This has changed with the introduction of streaming. Now the gatekeepers don't get to decide which ONE female spitta. Consumers can create a playlist of all the female spittas they like. Micki Ronnae is one of these femal spittas that is looking to take her high energy and her rap skills onto the playlists of listeners around the world.
Few times has an album been so culturally impactful that it gets not accolades from the music industry but it's essence and impact be captured and turned into a movie. And few albums did it like the classic album "Purple Rain".
