Fame is a helluva drug, and it comes at a high price. While many wish to reach that larger than life level, sometimes it costs friendships, family, and even morals. Many who have done everything to achieve fame later regretted it. Tonight we’re not gonna get too preachy, it’s all about the music coming from Jamaican born, Bronx based, Hood Celebrityy. Grabbing the reigns of French Montana’s “Famous“, she tackles it with her blend of Dancehall/Hip Hop. Highlighting how people treat you when you’re famous, she adds that they’ll never love you as well as those who genuinely care for you. The track was produced by Rico Love, DTownThaGreat, and DanjaHandz, and the original is featured on French’s “Jungle Rules” Album. Previewed earlier on a few Radio stations locally and overseas, it was met with mostly positive reviews. Fame can really change a person, stay home with me. Check out the “Walking Trophy” Hood Celebrityy’s “Famous Remix” below!
After releasing his EP “Indelible Colours” at the top of the month, Mobay based Rapper Chance has been enjoying favourable feedback from listeners. As promised, he would be releasing more product throughout 2018. The first offering since the EP is the visual for his 2017 track, “Chill Suite“! Shot by Romario Lynch a.k.a. “Seen By Lynch” in Portland, the visual features fellow collaborator Daley, and a Creative you’ll being seeing more often this year, Gyal Kapone (friend of the Blog). Fellow collaborator OneLoveTheo though not physically there, adds audio. While the song brought some laid back vibes, the video does the same as Daley and Chance are hosts to a few lovely ladies at a lil hideaway spot. Only thing missing from this video are some dope graphics, and a few wild moments (wink wink). If you haven’t heard it yet, Chance’s “Indelible Colours EP” is available here. Check out the video below.
Canada based Rapper Solyd Roy says “No more parties in JA” as he drops a new tune! Titled “Nuttin’ Good“, this is produced by K, Le Maestro and finds the Rapper being a terrible role model all while picking up the pace and having fun on this sample driven beat. If aren’t familiar with Solyd, we featured one of his tracks, “Cruff Daddy” last year. With an EP in the making, you might be hearing him more in the near future. A remix to this track would be fire though. Cover art by ShotByDeth. Whether you’re a goody two shoes, or a good for nothing individual, treat your ears to this below!
In music, an Artist shares his/her thoughts through a song, but at times it’s just not enough. Seeing that he has a lot to talk about, Montego Bay based Rapper MoulaUE steps outside the booth and shares his “Conversations With MoulaUE” series. In season 2, he speaks on his Artistry, getting his name out there, dealing with criticism, giving and earning respect, making music, and much more. The Rapper is currently working on a follow up to his “All U Go Get Until…” EP, so the converations should hold you until 2018. Check out season 1 here, and season 2’s clips below!
2017 seems to be the year for the one named Safaree. Despite a few bad moments, he has been doing well thanks to his released singles, surprising many with his Hot 97 Freestyle, and his various TV appearances. With the year coming to a close, he wants to ensure that fans get a lot more music with his latest Mixtape, “Fur Coat Vol. 1“. Featuring 15 tracks, SB continues to let folks know that despite all the things his name has been attached to good and bad, he can hold his own when it comes to making music. With DJ Self, Sean Kingston, Philly Swain, Bowe Jack, DJ Norie, and Mayday Carter making appearances, this is the right companion while you catch Safaree on your favourite VH1 reality show! No Fur Coats and Coconut Oil included. Check out the project below!
Fresh off the release of his “HeatRockz” EP with Producer Mordecai Beats, Rapper Five Steez introduces his “Dirty Couch” to the world in his first visual off the project. Directed by Scotty DreamKiller with assistance from Dirx, Steez drops the bars you know in between crashing and pouring up some Dragon Stout on his couch. With the Yellow/Black colour being prevalent throughout the video, this gives the impression that Five Steez is paying homage to the Wu Tang Clan here. This video wouldn’t be the same if members of the First Coast didn’t show their face and had their share of Dragon Stout on the couch. HeatRockz is available now! Get familiar with the boom bap Rap by checking out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
