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".

Some would say before you reach this point though there is a period where your waiting to exhale from holding in everything.

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".

The battle between right and wrong can often be blurred. In an era where there are so many sources for news, the facts can depend on who you ask. But what about when your on both sides of the argument? Are you both right and wrong? Or are you a victim of perception? This is what Jacobi Ryan tackles in his latest single "Hated". Being a multi-racial artist in a majority "urban" genre means that Jacobi Ryan like other multi-racial artists are forced with the decision to choose a side. Drake similarly tackled this issue in his track You and the 6 where he spits the line, "I used to get teased for being black, and now I'm here and I'm not black enough." The feelings seem mutual with Jacobi Ryan as he starts out both his first and second verse with a statement about his blackness.
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.

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".
