When it comes to the music, Rapper Imije gets spiritual about it…or rather Godly. Today the Red Block Artist premiered “Imije Almighty“. This 15 track project features released music, unreleased cuts, and demos. With guest appearances from Gully Ca$h, DeeWunn, The Rush, Kash Kapri, “Lady G“, and “Uncle Eddie“, they all bring a vibe to the project and the Artists take turns throwing fire and brimstone on the beats. Time to meet your maker, collect and listen to Imije’s project below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Repping where he’s from today is Rapper Gully Cash with a new freestyle. Over the Wu Tang Clan’s “Ice Cream” beat comes “Kingston 20“. Here he gave an idea of his day to day life, rules he abides by in his neighbourhood, showing respect to his crew and the “Gs” while effortlessly flowing over the old school production. Gully Cash has been staying busy since his last performance at Pay Attention and he may have another full project in the works. Stay tuned.
