Blvk H3ro has been toiling hard over these past few years to get here. With numerous singles, projects, and stage performances, he finally releases his debut album, “The Immortal Steppa“. Released through DubShot Records/BHM, we get 14 tracks that aims to capture the world’s attention. With production from Dennis “Greatest” Hamilton, The Grei Show, Kris Karz, Palace Pikney, SNR, JLL, BoomDraw, Kone, Wavy Jones, Bastido, Alexandre Hostein, and Guerilla Music Productions, Blvk gets assistance for his lyrics that’ll have you thinking, moving, and enjoying yourself. With influences from Stevie Wonder (whose “Superstition” track he covers), Michael Jackson (he sampled on “M.A.R.Y.“), Marijuana, and Rastafari, Blvk called in IOTOSH, Leno Banton, and Royal Blu to join in on the exhibition of great music. For those thinking that the project would completely have all new music, the favourites “H3rb“, “M.A.R.Y.“, and “SkyDive” off “The H3rb Connoisseur” were added. Congratulations to Blvk H3ro on reaching this far in his career. Artwork by Richard Nattoo, check out the project below, and share with a friend.

Love is in the air for many. While there will be those stocking up on Candy and Flowers, Rapper Five Steez will be doing what he loves all year…rap. Teaming up with Producer Mordecai, he drops “Love N Art“! Consisting of 9 tracks, Steez pens lyrics that continues his musical journey in being one of the best out there. While you won’t hear him doing his best Brian McKnight or Luther Vandross renditions, Steez delivers and will keep the Hip Hop head entertained. The project also features Shaq The MC who appears on two tracks (Dreamer & The Message). Artwork by Scotty Dreamkiller. If you and yours aren’t into the traditional VDay activities, put this project in rotation. Check out “Love N Art” below and share with a friend.
