Don Mykel popped up on the scene a few weeks back with Murder, a monstrous video that showcased the artists flow and penmanship. The 20 year old artist is not letting up as he delivers a new five track EP filled with plenty of crafty bars titled, “To Box With The Gods”.
The Harlem native takes on 5 records from the rap Gods and certainly serves each track justice with his impeccable wordplay. Don unleashes his clever wordplay upon us and let’s us know that he will be making quite some noise in 2015 through the likes of records from Biggie, Nas, Tu Pac, Jay Z and Big Pun.
South Florida emcee Jay Burna has had a big year and the scary part is, we’re not even half way through it. From his “Ready” video being placed on MTV and VH1, to his critically acclaimed released visuals for “Self Made”, Burna has been steadily creating a buzz that has all led up to this.
Today marks the official release of Jay’s debut EP he is appropriately calling “Fear Is A Lie”. Appropriate because he’s not afraid to face his doubters and competition head on and he does a damn good job at proving that he’s not just another one hit wonder.
In fact, the Black Congress Music Group artist has a lot more to serve up with videos for his tracks “Paradise”, “You Know” and “Down” on the way.
The EP packs energy and emotion from the very beginning and really gives you more insight into who Jay Burna is and what he represents as a whole. Look for fellow South Florida artist Zoey Dollaz making a guest appearance along with other surprise features along the way.
The project is availble for purchase wherever digital music is available, with hard copies also available in select regional locations and independent chains.
J.Drew has unveiled his brand new 4-track EP, The Long Way Home.
The multifaceted artist knows what it takes to be the best, he acknowledges producers Pharrell Williams, Rodney Jerkins, and Warryn Campbell, stating that, “These guys show me what it means to really be the best at what you do. They give me great advice and I’m glad to have them as mentors.”
The Long Way Home is a project that showcases his personal development throughout his journey of becoming a better man, as well as maturing as an artist. J.Drew’s music is perfectly R&B, and it’s not perfectly hip-hop, but it is perfectly J.Drew.
New addition to the First Life collective, Los Angeles-based female emcee Sami Seal releases her debut mixtape The Jungle Tape.
