album review (190)

FLAME & Mike REAL Image


Mike REAL and FLAME are both from St. Louis, Missouri, and have known each other for over ten years. Mike said that one time

“A friend of mine from high school was the little brother of his [FLAME’s] producer at the time, and he was like ‘My brother is producing for this dude, he’s dope. You should come to my church and check him out,’ so I did.”

When Mike REAL went to see Flame for the first time, he liked his music and bought FLAME’s four song EP, which is not anywhere on the Internet

Over the past few years, Michigan rapper NF has achieved an unprecedented degree of success in both the Christian and mainstream markets. His third (record label) LP, Perception, ended up charting at #1, going on to receive RIAA Platinum certification. Despite the album’s financial success, it was difficult to argue that most of its material was little more than a rehashing of prior albums. One of the underlying issues has been the fact that NF has released his albums in a rapid, yearly success

Theory Hazit – Lord Fire

 

Lord Fire is the new project from Theory Hazit and Vintage and is a hip hop showcase. On the first track "Yeah Ya'll" you instantly know that these brothers will give you a vintage sound (pun intended). A great blend of sampled vinyl and boom bap that will reach all across the globe. Theory proclaims that he and Vintage are the new Gangstarr and Reflection Eternal. Wow! Just what hip hop needs, a dose of freshness. Speaking of freshness the next song on this albu

Those in the underground know Japhia and hail his first mixtape, Pages of Life: Chapter One, as a classic often compared to Illmatic from Nas. With his newest release, Westside Pharmacy, Japhia finds himself ready to be discovered by the masses. He's a Christian and doesn't hide from his beliefs (Japhia states "I saw the light when I was 17, man, that's the flyest thing I've ever seen. I've been a Christian in Christian Dior, ducking the triple six in Seven jeans" in "Lifey's Revenge"), but is

So Sareem Poems is not your typical rapper. While others in hip hop celebrate sinning, he raps about living righteously. You could almost call him a Christian rapper, given that he is Christian and a rapper, but that seems like too constraining a label, especially since "Christian rap" isn't exactly a quality cue. You could call him a conscious rapper, and that description fits better. However, he doesn't sound like a conscious rapper, or at least the mellow, bohemian variety. They all smoke

RedCloud has satisfied with his sophomore release in ‘Traveling Circus.’ Featuring guest spots from Braille of Lightheaded, Kaitlyn Cassels of Sackcloth Fashion and Sherwin Gardner, among others. The LP is produced almost entirely by Syntax head man Rocdomz.

The LP begins with the title track, in which RedCloud drops three random verses in company with a hook saying nothing courtesy of Sam Hart. It’s an impressionable track, but for the leadoff cut, it felt out of place. Sackcloth Fashion’s K

I stumbled across a mixtape from them called Social x Club – Royale Deluxe (Hosted by DJ Destiny). It features songs from older projects, as well as some unreleased items.

The mixtape is a classic in my mind, from beginning to end. The playfulness of Martymar, the businesslike approach from F.E.R.N. It’s the perfect balance. My favorite song from the album, one I still play
