Grammy-nominated producer Baby Paul & Detroit legend Supa Emcee form XrossRoads serving up homage to the late great Proof with immaculate visuals & an entourage of talent to pay tribute. With “I Swear” not only do we get the producer/rapper combo of Baby Paul & Supa Emcee but also the likes of the extremely talented Ty Farris & Pierre Anthony. All in all it’s a fantastic tribute & fitting to be released on the birthday of the hip hop pioneer Proof may he rest in peace. Enjoy“I Swear” above, here is a little backstory straight from the XrossRoads camp.

XrossRoads is composed of Grammy-nominated
producer Baby Paul and battle rap master of ceremonies Supa Emcee.
Titled “I Swear”, this collaborative track features rapper Ty Farris
and singer Pierre Anthony. The song leak is available on the rap
outfit’s Soundcloud. A tribute song to deceased Iron Fist Records
founder, Proof, “I Swear” pays homage to this hip hop pioneer.
Proof was a talented member of famed music group D-12. Both Supa Emcee
and rapper Ty Farris were signed to Proof’s Detroit record company.
Emcee and Farris collaborated on this track to honor their mentor’s
legacy and lyrical teachings. Hinting on the weight of the emotional
single, Supa Emcee explains, “If I can’t wake the dead off this album,
then I’m not lyrically conscious.” The two lyricists craft powerful
metaphors and use masterful structure to convey deep praise for their
mentor with unquestionable resolve.
On the production side, composer Baby Paul employs compelling vocal
sample chops and a rolling drum track to create a platform for the
song’s vocals to shine. Reminiscent of earlier collaborations with
artists Smif-N-Wessun and Black Moon, the esteemed producer crafts an
emotional soundscape using deep bass grooves. Topping off the
collaboration is Pierre Anthony, who lends raw hood vocals on the
chorus to accentuate the sweet, soulful feel of the instrumental.
Supa Emcee is an accomplished Detroit-based battle rap emcee from
Highland Park, Michigan. Supa received critical acclaim for features
in major film productions, having hit the silver screen in blockbuster
8 Mile and entertained audiences for UPN’s television shows “Moesha”
and “The Parkers”. The esteemed artist has also opened for major label
acts like Dead Prez, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Krs-1, Eminem, D-12,
Whodini, and Rakim. Supa Emcee has released several original works and
starred on internationally distributed compilations. Baby Paul, also
known as BPZY, is a Grammy- nominated producer from Queens, NY. BPZY
has worked with artists such as Naz, AZ and Black Moon. Now an
independent composer, Baby Paul was a one-time member of renowned
production team out of Brooklyn, Da Beatminerz.
XrossRoads is a collaborative hip hop group of Supa Emcee and Baby
Paul. With the mission of creating quality hip hop music, XrossRoads
is set to release their debut self-titled album in late 2018 x early
2019.

TINY JAG DENIED PROMO FOR ANTI-PATRIARCY VIDEO

TINY JAG DENIED PROMO FOR ANTI-PATRIARCY VIDEO
Detroit’s Tiny Jag is a rapper, singer/songwriter known for conveying relevant messages throughout her music. One of her most consistent; the empowerment of women. Recently, Tiny Jag released a vibrant visual to her single ‘Bizarre,’ challenging the traditional story of creation and Adam and Eve.
Tiny Jag on her intentions with the ‘Bizarre’ Music Video:
“We hear about Eve’s shortcomings at a very young age. Many of us are influenced by that to view women as inadequate before we can even understand what we’re digesting. I wanted to challenge that narrative and give its followers a bit of a hard time.”
Shortly after releasing the controversial video via YouTube, Tiny Jag and team began to push the visual for support and promotion. Among these attempts were numerous tries with Facebook (also owning/controlling Instagram). After every tweaked attempt fell short of approval, Tiny Jag realized the concept and message of her work may be what was truly denied.
Tiny Jag on being censored as a woman:
“So I knew we weren’t going to get support for the video if it had cursing or discriminatory lyrics, I avoided those things.  The track/visual do not discuss, promote, or demonstrate sexual acts, no nudity. I mean, it’s a bit out of the box but to censor me for anything short of those things seems discriminatory in itself. I can’t help but believe that it’s an attack against what it represents.”

Pariis Noel Beautifully Flawed

New artist are the pulse of the music scene and some artist aren’t new but the music is. I Love to hear new music and will post and rate new artist and their projects or singles and rate them with an unbiased ear. If you now me, you know I indulge in the fine arts of Marijuana culture and will rate the music according to tokes of a spliff with 5 tokes being the highest accolade that an artist can receive from the Killz Korner.

Today we will review Pariis Noel and Maya Jones.

Ima start with Pariis Noel today and his project Beautifully Flawed. Let me start by saying dawg can flatout rap. his rhyme skillz are easily displayed with a monotone voice attached to gritty lyrics. There are 3 singles available right now as well as the full length project with “Too Busy Living” being my favorite of the 3 songs I was sent to listen to.When it comes to lyrics this guy does not have a problem at all, but what I find is when the artist is talented lyrically, they do the Nas effect. They choose some of the most basic beats. When Pariis meets with a producer who wants to take music to the next level, he will be on his way as one of the best to do it from the Mitten.

Overall the project is a nice project and gives the listener a deep venture into the life and mind of Parris Noel.

Killz Korner rating. 3 1/2 tokes.
