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'.
Dial Tone starts off the track with a smooth flow like Chauncey bringing up the ball from the back court. And like a true point guard starts setting up the play to score.
My pride I slid to the side and kept it movin'.
The thing about Dial Tone's flow is that is subtle, yet deceptive for the fact that he can put these crazy puzzle of words together and make it come together into a masterpiece. Much like Chancy navigating thru traffic to get the lane and score. So with a cool delivery and spittin' nothin but truth by the time his verse ends it's undeniable that He got game.
The chorus is one of the best parts about the track. Dial Tone takes lead as he matches the beat which is itself a cool vibe for you to bop your head to. Also the chorus is catchy and simple enough to be have that replayability for any age while at the same time still being able to keep a more conscious listener engaged.
Hakeem Eli'juwon doesn't wait for the chorus to finish, he immediately goes in. Similar to how Richard Hamilton is able to move without the ball and when and at the right time was able to catch the ball of the dribble and score.
You won't my attention,
Richard Hamilton out worked any opponent he faced and persevered through every play and never let up. Anyone who followed Hakeem knows that 2017 was a year he out worked his competition dropping tape after tape. He continued this work ethic to close out the year with the release of #HeavyMetal which was another solid project that Hakeem added to his catalog.
But enough of the NBA talk watch this duo for yourself and listen to the track "Get On Up" by Hakeem Eli'juwon ft. Dial Tone.
The story and the origin of the Otsutsuki Brothers is unknown which leaves many questions unanswered. Are they apart of a secret society? Do they speak Japanese? No body exactly knows these answers yet, but what we do know is Japanese or not everybody wants "Fast Cars". And the "Otsutsuki Brothers" are no exception. Their single "Fast Cars" is better than any Fast And Furious sequel and it's filled with just as much action.
Uber has become one of the fastest growing ride-sharing companies and one of the most cost effective ways to get across town. Millions of people use this app to get to there destination and many drivers try to have a few amenities for its passengers such as bottled water or streaming music. But not to be outdone, Keezy and his ride service Pre-Rolled Service has some amenities of it's own which includes PadeTea and of course Pre-Rolls. But don't grab the Aux cord just yet. As the video shows Pre-Rolled service ain't your normal Uber ride. So let me tell you about it.
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.
Everyone hates going to the grocery store. There’s long lines. There’s slow checkers. And it’s always packed on the 1st and the 15th. But 24k Astall with some help from his friend David Puffin turn a trip to the grocery store into a non-stop turn-up in their video Caillou. That’s right Caillou not some vegetable you’ll find in the produce aisle. Caillou (pronounced KY-YOO), is a cartoon character that has crazy adventures, so it's only right that 24k Astall and David Puffin have an adventure of their own.
For anyone who has driven down the L.L. Tisdale Expressway knows that this expressway connects the north side to the rest of the city. For some it is their way out on their commute to work, but it's also a way 'in', to the north side and the place that many people call home. Pade takes us on this ride from the L.L. Tisdale into the north side on his track "Wavy".
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".
Jimmy: Eddie, not only is what you're saying not true, it is wrong and disrespectful for you to discuss Rosa Parks in that way.
For many people a barber isn't just someone who cuts hair; they're your life coach, your therapist, your news anchor to the CNN of the hood, and so much more. But what happens when your barber is in one of your favorite videos? But not cuttin hair, but cuttin up the track. Keezy proves on 'Pit Stop' that his flow is as sharp as his clippers and that sometimes the funnest place to be, is the barbershop.
When does a picture explain it all? When the explanation isn't verbal at all, and when a persons' body language is speaking loud and clear. For St. Domonick, his artwork for the single "Someone New" does just that. Inspired by a scene in the video "The Rain" by Oran "Juice" Jones, St. Domonick proves that he is knows about 'real' love and heartbreak. For which he lets you know in his song "Someone new" that this is not your puppy love type of track.
Spring Break has arrived, meaning no school. But what's better than no school? A Spring Break party, and The_NOReaga is bringing the supplies to keep the party going with his track "Drugz in the Party". And what's a party with out the homies, and even better they all have there own supply of bars and audio dope....
