Bumpy Knuckles Wreaks Havoc Over Nottz Production "Pop Duke Volume One".

Published

on

New York emcee Bumpy Knuckles continues an exhilarating year of hip hop for listeners who hunger more substance in their raps! With “Pop Duke, Volume One” a backdrop of classic hip hop production straight from the boards of mainstay producer NOTTZ lays the path for Bumpy Knuckles to address with lyrical finesse. Limited to ten records, the project escapes the curse of filler and embraces a team of legendary features to enhance Bumpy Knuckles already raw, authentic flow on an album that plays perfectly front to back. Detroit’s very own VStylez & BIG GOV represent doing justice to “In Love With The Game” over the screeching sounds of one of NOTTZ hardest cuts on the project. Beyond that Chuck D, Kool G Rap, Biz Markie, Raheem DaVaughn, Kuye Mason & Lil Fame provide an impressive team of features flexing in their own respective ways. Before Pop Duke closes “Ol Morning” is a standout track as Bumpy displays his storytelling abilities over Nottz keys primed for a story to tell in one of my favorite records of the year. All in all, the short but consistent effort contributes yet another stellar album for 2018 hip hop well leaving you anxious for a Volume Two. – COMMi$$ION

Taylor J – “Coolin Till My 3rd Album Drop” EP

Published

on

I first caught wind of Taylor J last year during the Swisher Sweet Artist Project show which took place at the legendary St. Andrews Hall where DetroitRap.com was blessed with having media access to. Since then I’ve been steadily keeping my eyes & ears open to the midwest rapper/singer who has been making noise across the interwebs. Speaking of blessings, one of the most creative videos of last year came in the form of Taylor J’s critically acclaimed “Blessed“. Since then Taylor J has been hard at work crafting new vibes and as a treat is giving fans a little something before the BIG something drops. With “Coolin Till My 3rd Album Drop” we get a delectable five record plate chocked full of enough heat to hold us over till the grand reveal.

It was quite the introductory year for Detroit emcee Jonnie Morris in 2018! The budding artist not only made it to finals for a #UHHA2019 performance but also managed to come in at #22 for his debut ep “It’s All Beautiful and It’s All Good” on my year-end top fifty selection found here. It’s a new year though and Jonnie Morris isn’t wasting a moment of it with brand new music, in fact, he won’t “Back Down” at all with this heavy hitting new single that braces us for his incoming sequel of sorts to his last ep. “Jonnie, Be Good” hitting digital shelves everywhere on February 1st. For anyone who’s been following the growth of one of the cities top upcoming lyricists, one thing is for certain, “Back Down” is just the beginning of what’s in store for 2019.

FROSTisRAD – “The Beginning”

FROSTisRAD is here with a dope approach of his own in the form of "The Beginning'. Quite the beginning indeed, if you haven't familiarized yourself with the artist known as FROSTisRAD this introduction paints a vivid portrait.

FROSTisRAD is here with a dope approach of his own in the form of “The Beginning‘. Quite the beginning indeed, if you haven’t familiarized yourself with the artist known as FROSTisRAD this introduction paints a vivid portrait. A modernized Kid Cudi comes to mind and the mellow almost somber vibes mesh from his singing and rapping in a syrupy fashion. Reaching for that heart in the cloudy sky on the cover almost parallels the story behind “The Beginning” as “I don’t know you no more” becomes a re-occurring message inside the record that drives forward building as it goes. Without a doubt, you’ll want to keep an eye on the multi-talented FROSTisRAD going into the future.
