A cymbal taps lightly as it blends smoothly into the background. A bass kick starts followed by a few light hits of a snare. That's how you let the beat build. The cymbal clashes as a piano comes in soo soulfully playing along with the drums. But this still doesn't feel like the main ingredient, not just yet. A funky electric guitar pierces through the beat. That's that main ingredient I was searching for. Now this feels right. This feels familiar. The crowd starts to cheer and clap. Then he starts to rap, "Check. I can see my old school, use to be a young Hawk. my girl was a Miller Driller, that's where it all started...' I start to sing along having heard this song before.
Busta Rhymes was in a feather suit for a 2.7 million dollar video but I bet that you don't know one verse from that song. Though people still wear feather suits, what they don't do is pay 2.7 million for a music video. Long gone are the flashy cars and big mansions and the million dollar budgets, but what happens when all the flashing lights and pyrotechnics are gone? What happens when ain't no more Big Pimpin'? I'll tell what happens, the message does the shining. And Kode Ransom is proving just this with his recent videos called “Big Crutch” and “Brenda’s Got A Baby (Reboot)”. So sit back and watch Kode Ransom tell these two powerful stories.
Tulsa has talent, nobody can say it doesn't if you don't belive me check it out yourself. (And if you know any artists you would like to see we are always taking suggestions.). So now your a fan. But are you really a fan? Don't just think buying from local artists is about putting food on there plate, it's bigger than that. Supporting your local artists is pivotal into investing in your local arts. But if you don't want them it, another city might.
"Versace, Versace, Medusa head on me like I'm 'Luminati." Everyone remembers this smash hit by Migos in the fall of 2013. More importantly everyone remembers the beef it sparked about artists saying that everyone in the game had jacked their flow. But are they the ones who really started created this flow? As the saying goes. "It ain't about who did it first, it's about who did it last." Hip-hop has been the biggest example of this, especially since the criteria for best rapper depends on who's the hottest this last year, hell last week, But definitely not who did it first. Hip-hop, like boxing is a young mans sport, and throughout the years our memory about who did it first or who is the greatest has gotten just as fuzzy.
WHAT YOU THINK I RAP 4? I bet you can probably finish this line without even thinking about it. But what's your answer? Not Kanye's. But your real answer. When you go to work everyday do you know what your working for? When you start your car are you thinking? Is this what I'm really working for? Bezel 365 is a rapper who is answering this question for himself on the track "Rap 4".
I'm really in the hood wit some G's breaking packs up,
Trumps in office, the Warriors won the NBA Finals, and Prodiogy is gone. These events alone have shaped 2017. But through all the chaos, all the lies, all the tweets. One thing has remained strong, GOLD. No matter if your buying a Rolex or stock on Wall street the expression "Worth it's weight in Gold" has stood true. And one rapper is setting out for his own pot of GOLD, Tulsa rap legend Young DV with his track which stands true "Pot Of Gold".

For many people family is everything. Most everything you learned from a young age came from family. From how your big cousin taught you how to spit game to a fine chic. To how your uncle taught you that everybody is not your friend and to watch the people that hang around you. To how you were taught to be a man and look people in their eyes and give a firm handshake. These are the lessons and many others that were learned from our first teachers, family. But these lessons were more than addition and subtraction, they were family values. Chris TheGod MC Cain is proving that family values is what really makes us, us. And his track "Closure" proves that family values is what made him. He starts out the track spittin':

With hundreds of bikers competing to take home the crown of the toughest biker in the United States and to the victor goes the spoils. But the real event for everybody else is CRY BABY HILL.
