Over the weekend, rambunctious Atlanta rap outfit Two-9 kicked off their new #Two9Day initiative—for which they plan on dropping a new project on the 29th day of the month, every month—with a 5-song EP called #AugustTwo9. Today the guys drop off a video for a track off that project called “Rolling”.
Landon Thomas comes through with a brand new video to “He Ain’t Me”. The visual is directed by Meez Lateef. The visual paints a delicate picture of a love drama gone wrong.
Thomas proudly states he’s the better man for his lover. The smooth track is a perfect balance of R&B and hip hop infused with gritty production.
“Remember Me” is a track that gives you a bit of a look inside of Stealf Soulja. Produced by Ceezy. It is a statement track meant to express Soulja’s need to be remembered by any means necessary.
Whether you remember him from his music or as the teen dodging gun shots in his neighborhood, he makes it known that you will indeed remember his name.
Today ROOTNOTE and frequent collaborator/California emcee Jetpack Jones are proud to announce the release of a new four track collaborative EP titled “PE3MOH.” The aforementioned ROOTNOTE, a highly regarded collective of artists and producer extraordinaires led by the likes of Brock Berrigan, Handbook, and RUFF DRAFT among others are known for their distinct sounds and desire to push creative inspiration.
Recruiting the ever so versatile and equally inspirational leader of the JetpackMovement (Jetack Jones) to provide an array of thought provoking verses, multifaceted rhyme schemes and delightful melodies only seems fitting for this sort of collaborative effort.
School. Work. Responsibilities. Expectations. Deadlines. LIFE. It can be a lot. Sometimes we work things up in our head to the point where we create problems for ourselves for no reason. Surrounding ourselves with that inner crew of people who know us better than we know ourselves is crucial.
On “All In Your Mind,” the throwback, jazzy beat complements Chris Miles’ singing and rapping as he reciprocrates the respect and love he has for his girl who reminds him that it’s all in his head.
As you know, the 16-year-old rapper has been buzzing for a minute. “All In Your Mind” is the latest release from Chris Miles’ forthcoming Milestones project, following the first single “Psychotic,” which dropped last month.
“Leading you in with a bluesy beat that carries through the song, ‘All In Your Mind’ is the type of track you want to listen to as you’re soaking in the last few weeks of summer sun,” praised Billboard in their premiere of the song earlier today.
There aren’t many 21-year-old’s that can say they’ve been in the rap game for 8+ years. North Chicago rapper J.R. Donato is one of the few that can. At 13, rapping as Young J.R., he had a regional hit with “500 Degrees.”
Still, his peers didn’t take him very seriously as he was distributing CD’s of his music at school – finding the music he worked to make on the floor or in the garbage didn’t deter his ambitions, rather it pushed him to take things a few steps further. Falling under the wing of local vet Twista, J.R. dropped out of high school and began touring the Midwest.
The teen-aged rapper that garnered attention for rapping over Lil Wayne beats was coming into his own, and soon he crossed paths with Wiz Khalifa back stage on the Under the Influence tour. Wiz later enlisted J.R. for a feature on his Cabin Fever 2 mixtape before signing him to Taylor Gang Ent.
“Make It Count” is an embodiment of the work that J.R. Donato’s put in to this point, as he’s turned doubters into believers and aspires to continue this effort with his forthcoming Fast Money & Freedom project.
While last year’s North Pole boasted big name features like Wiz, Iamsu!, Ab-Soul, Chevy Woods, and Smoke DZA, Fast Money & Freedom’s only guest appearance comes from J.R.’s The Jetsonz cohort Cody Blankz as the project is produced in-full by Sledgren. With “Make It Count,” J.R. Donato has also announced the September 28th release date for Fast Money & Freedom.
Thaddeus David & bvhutch.visuals team up to unleash “From The Jump”. The soundtrack set by Aviel Ben Yamin features a slow, bass heavy beat to compliment the eerie visuals including an abandoned burned down home, a smoke-veiled skate bowl, and concrete factory.
“From The Jump” serves as the first leak off of his upcoming The Rise: White Summer, due late September, and is only a sample of what Thaddeus David & Aviel Ben Yamin will be releasing.
