Flava Man. Flava Man. Do you want to dance? Hell Naw. Hell Naw. I can't give you a chance. Can you finish this line. Probably not. Not even Shazam got this right. And this sums up just how badly promoted this song was. It was Evergreen content that had the chance to be big. But some would say could you really blame it for being underwhelming promoted? This song was buried deep down in a long tracklist of songs that were hits themselves that included some unforgettable verses. Not to mention how this soundtrack bridged two cities. Tulsa and Oklahoma City. These two cites are always in competition, well at least that's always been the narrative. But anyone who is really in the scene knows this couldn't be further from the truth, as artists like Steph Simon and Chris "The God" MC Cain collabed on a track called "Love Affair". Who could also forget the "Chosen Few" project from Dialtone and Grand National that proved that both cities not only work together but equally want to see each other win. Because a win in either city would mean a win for the state. But this was 2020!
A song that was so organic, so made for celebrating, so 2020! This seemed like the home run the state was waiting for. This song had the potential to put both artists in the national spotlight. For both cities to have their scenes solidified and reward the millions of hours artists have put in for both scenes. Two wildcards made a song that celebrated the turning of a decade. But when the decade came there was no mention of this hit. It's TRX's unorthodox flow that captures your ear when listening to his verse. His lyrics illustrate a player who just wants one thing in 2020.
I wish I didn't meet her in the club.
Keeng Cut. Fresh off his release of his album Flavio Cútatore, this was a 180 degree turn. This was straight Flava! Fans of Keeng Cut know that his playeristic lyrics and smooth delivery are reminiscent of a young Pimp C that has the independent hustle and respect of a Master P. Keeng Cut is not only mastered the finesse. He has introduced the world to Flava.
Flava Man. Flava Man. Do you want to dance?,
The countdown began. 188.8.131.52.1.. It's 2020. But for the song it was still trapped in 2019 with no mention. No tweet. No Instagram post. No New Years show. And no play. When it came to the song 2020 the was ball dropped. But hey. It's still 2020.
Listen to the song below and see why 2020 should've been the biggest song of the New Year.

The World's Most Interesting Man. Some would say they miss the old guy that was always dressed in suits and told tall tales. But to those that know Keeng Cut know that he we wasn't even close. Keeng Cut, artist, entrepreneur, and also most would say trend-setter. But even that would be an understatement to his influence and cultural impact. Nearly a year ago he introduced the world to Flavio Cûtore, a smooth, fly, and debonair who is polar opposite to the rapping Keeng Cut. But now with the release of Keeng Cut's latest release "Stay Flavored My Friend", Keeng Cut learned that both could co-exist on the same project and if anything else it would be fully flavor!
Flavio Cútatore is back and he is "Cuttin Up" with his latest hit single you guessed it "Cuttin Up". But what you didn't guess is that his alter ego Flavio Cútatore could put out hits just like Keeng Cut, and his way. With Flavor, You've heard Flavio Cútatore on hits such as "Marathon Lady" and "NFMC" but it's this song right here! This song here!!! That's going to push him over the top. Check out the Flavor for yourself as he ends the verse with so much flavor.
Cry Baby Hill was an experience to say the least. Remember the SURVIVOR'S GUIDE: CRY BABY HILL? Well hopefully you were prepared for it. But enough of that, here's a little recap to what went on for those who weren't there. There were Hundreds of people, a crazy bike race, plenty of alcohol and of course the main reason LIVE MUSIC.
From the very first key attack, a pianists must be able enough to manipulate not only the volume but mostly importantly create an experience. This skill is often called touch or technique. For the job of a pianists is more than just playing notes. The pianists must be able to provoke the full spectrum of human emotions seamlessly and effortlessly. Keeng Cut is showing the the world with his formal introduction "World Culture Keys" that he has what it takes to move the world.
There is a funny thing about train tracks and how they can sometimes become a sort of divisional line for a city. For Tulsa, these same type of tracks have divided the city and left both sides to diverge into two completely different worlds. And for anyone coming from the north side, crossing these tracks means 2 things: 1) This is a completely different world than what you have grown accustom to. 2) You instantly are separated from the idea of being 'normal', your differences are amplified, and your history of being excluded and estranged has only propelled the feeling of being of not that world, but ALIEN. This same message is being told in Surron the 7th's song "918lien".
It's a little after 1AM and the Jabee concert had just wrapped up. The crowd had been standing on there feet for hours and it seemed like the night was over, but not quite yet. But like Jay-Z said "After the party, it's the after party", which the bouncers made sure that everybody was on 'THE LIST', of which I was surprised to be on (perks of the game)....
