Nametag Alexander & Black Bethoven Team Up For “Hello Victory” EP.

Published

on

With the release of Nametag Alexander’sHello Victory” EP, the veteran emcee celebrates accomplishment and laments his experiences on the road to success. The follow up to 2016’s “Metal Letter EP“, the emcee’s collaboration with VA producer JR Swiftz, finds Nametag reconnecting with gifted producer & also brother, Black Bethoven (see “The Soul System” from 2010) for an EP full of braggadocio and casual retellings of encounters on the road to success. From the opening “5 Minutes ‘Til Show“, Tag makes it clear that he has a little more to say than normal and that he’s committed to going there with his audience. He covers topics such as the early demise of his mother, to dealing with his father’s sobriety in the aftermath of growing up with his addiction on “The Chapters“. The only time Nametag departs from working out his own inner demons, briefly touching on topics like anxiety, is when he reminds his audience exactly why he’s one of the best on tracks like the Mahd assisted “Own Lane” & the all bars assault “Interlude” proving that whatever trophies Nametag Alexander has, he’s earned. “Hello Victory” is available now on all major platforms to stream and download music.

ALLiTiZ & Beware - Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

Originally dropping in 2018 here is a project that is resurfacing as a movie of the same title approaches later this year. Forget the upcoming movie though, this three-piece storytelling lyrical endeavor hasn’t lost any luster since the original release.  Together emcee ALLiTiZ alongside producer Beware a creepy story marathon that has the two complimenting each other’s abilities in pristine fashion is crafted. Whether giving you the creeps on “Room for One More” or the ominous vibes of “The Green Ribbon” all three of these records offer something different but fitting as a whole. ALLiTiZ impresses with his delivery that has you listening intent on uncovering every detail of the stories he scripts. The team up with Beware is a welcome combination and “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” might just have you begging for a sequel.

AGiLE SOCiETY X GREG BEARD- JUST FOR YOU

I was lucky enough to get to witness some of the fine-tuning of this greatness right before my eyes at Studio 221B in Oak Park, MI a couple of months back & now I’m happy to be able to share the final results. Those results pack a five-song funky homage to the late great Prince built from “For You“.  I thoroughly enjoyed the progression/arrangement of “Just For You” and its short ride is over in a pinch after getting lost in the sounds of the project. A short ride that will have you hitting replay fairly quick I imagine. The shining star here is Greg Beard but the AGiLE SOCiETY family is here in full force with JRGotTheHiTS & BOOSTER playing a role amongst other collaborations. To top things off it’s available for free! Listen above or hit the link directly here: https://soundcloud.com/theagilesociety/sets/just-for-you

Alexis Allon – “Closer” EP

Alexis Allon - "Closer" EP

Sometimes recognizing “Starr” quality can be a daunting task, however with Alexis Allon you’ll start feeling the sky shine quite instantly as you press play on her brand new EP “Closer“. The Titan Records artist brandishes a powerful voice that carries its weight across a short but extremely fulfilling four record dosage that paints a vivid picture of Alexis’s capabilities.

Kicking off with one of my favorite records in the last few months is the single “Starr”  which has an infectious chorus that easily traps itself inside the space between your ears. Not only does the singing pull you in but Alexis Allon isn’t to be taken lightly on the microphone either. She squeezes in a fair amount of effective bars across “Closer“.

Keep Em” is a great example of those bars – in a more mellow record packed with jazzy vibes. “One thing that should be blatant is I’m here to make a statement‘… well statement made Alexis! The remainder of the EP carries forth the first half’s momentum. “Devotion” & the title track “Closer” are two short but sweet offerings that expand on the strengths of those before.

In closing “Closer” is a demonstrative effort that showcases Alexis Allon as a multi-talented artist who stands just as strong on her own as she does lending her vocal abilities amongst features such as her previous collaborations with Detroit legendary emcee Supa Emcee. The only thing you can ask for after finishing the EP is for more music, & without a doubt, “Closer” will stay in my rotation until that day comes.
