Commercials are all around us. We listen to them in cars on the radio and on Spotify. We watch them on TV and on YouTube. The most interesting part is that over half of these commercials have some type of music. Sometimes popular chart-selling music and sometimes just a simple jungle, but nonetheless it's still music. Brands recognize that music is needed to help market their products, and nothing has proven to have better results than incorporating rockstars. Let's face it. What's better than being perceived as being friends with a rockstar? And don't forget the crazy yacht parties. Zack Thrash has a song called "Rockstar" that has the potential to be commercially in a commercial.
Spark. Is a very complex concept. The perfect variables have to happen for such a relatively small thing to happen. Even more interesting is that spark can be both a negative and a positive. Spark a fire,and it means destruction, it means pain. But spark a mind and the light can be so bright that it can help heal the destruction caused by the former. OmaleyB's track "Kerosene" is the spark that has the power to change the history of a city.
Basketball has always been synonymous with music. Whether you wanted to be like Mike Jordan or Killer Mike, what makes one great is also what makes the other great. Competition! Both are highly competitive whether that's dunking on an opponent or dropping a diss track. So when The Tulsa Voice sponsored a fiction writing contest I too wanted in on the competition. Inspired by the recent release of 2 Chainz's album I already had the perfect title. "Rap Or Go To The League". Here's the story:
Anyone that knows Verse knows that he has slick wordplay that cuts the beat like a samurai sword. On the beat Verse has not only dominated his competition but he has surpassed them to a level that few artists ever achieve. Legend. The legend of Verse is heavily intertwined with the Tulsa hip-hop scene. It was no surprise that his competition be ecstatic about his absence from music. But their comfort during his absence would also be their downfall. Verse is back. OR as Jay Z said it; "When I come back like Jordan. Wearin' the 4-5, it ain't to play games with you". And just like Jordan, Verse's latest single "Moor Flex" proves that he ain't playin'.
In every bad relationship there is a point where you come to the realization. Fuck it! Some would say before you reach this point though there is a period where your waiting to exhale from holding in everything. The bottled up emotion, the pain, the lies, can physically, mentally, and emotionally consume you. It's not until your standing in your driveway watching a car engulfed in flames that you truly get to exhale. Bambi is an artist couldn't wait to exhale on her track called "Fuck I Look Like".
Desperado. The iconic movie of the outlaw Antonio Banderas that sang about tales of his past while also wooing females in the process. Little was known about this traveler, other than his guitar and the tales that he sung. In Tulsa there is an artist by the name of Lonely Bandz who himself sings of the tales that has captured his audience and attract a female fan base that is infatuated with outlaws. His latest single "Fantasy" is another one of these tales that speak on his experiences of both betrayal and heartache.
A few snaps, melodic vocals, and a snare drum is all the artist David Townsend needs to create a vibe. Guided by his smooth vocal tone and melodic flow of which he uses to navigate the beat. Also guiding is his senses and experiences that account for tempo changes and musical bridges. In the track "One Night" David Townsend alludes to being the "bad guy"...
St. Domonick the brand is back with his single "Blue Magic" to remind his competition that "Santo runs the town". Fresh off his hiatus St. Domonick makes sure it's known that his presence represents his return and thus his crown. Few artist can take the sort of break that St. Domonick has and still have the same impact as someone who has been dropping music all year,
The Mingo Trail is comprised of two segments that run through Tulsa. It's on this trail that you'll see real nature. The trees vast and tall run along the trail. The wild life birds, squirrels, and pitbulls that have gotten loose. And then theirs the junkiez. Their trails of of broken glass bottles and syringes litter the ground as they lay unresponsive from their last fix. It's best to just not fuck with them. Adam The God is doing just this with the release of his latest video "I Can't FW Junkiez".
