80 Empire Anthems & Icons (New Album)

Published

on

Just got a email with the new Anthems & Icons from the 80 Empire. I thought to myself, ok i know the crew is from across the bridge over in Canada. Go ahead and follow the link and got beat over the Head with the opening record from KRS ONE “WE RUN SHIT” feat DJ Eclipse on the cuts! Ok im sold as i look at the credits and notice a couple Michigan Goats on the project Swifty Mcvay and Jon Connor. So im like bet lets run this project.

Then the second song comes on with a hypnotizing track and the voice of MC Eiht with some guest work from Kurupt and we are sold already. To find your favorite Detroit artist on the project make sure you tap in with the joint “BRAVO” feat DJ Spice and NEMS along with Swifty. Stand For Something feat Jon Connor needs to be the title track for a future oscar nominated film. This song is produced and written to inspire emotion and thought. Check out the entire project at a streaming service near you!

“Axel Foley” New Album by Killz

Published

“You can hear my pain in the verse,  im versed in the game.” Lines from the first song “Get Up” off the recently released AXEL FOLEY from Killz. There could not have been a better way to set the tone for this album. Jay Z could not have laid a better verse from one of his many classic albums.

“Axel Foley” finds Killz in the mecca of the desert Las Vegas. If any city can understand the mob mentality it takes to make it past 20 and not be dead, in prison or homeless like Detroit its Sin City. Get up has a ocean freeway drive vibe musically, yet i can also place myself in a foreign with the top peeled back doing 90 on Mt Rose. Yea you might Kill yourself!

This isnt a full in depth review. But more so a must listen with tracks like “Just Speak in” “Rearview” “We in This” and “My Own” for the commercial ear. Songs that give it to you lyrically from “Open Mic” to “Real Ones” “Mobbin” and a classic feature from Dog Pounds finest Kurupt on “We On” treat yourself to the Axel Foley experience from Killz

The Flood vol.2 is the second installment to “The Flood” mixtape saga from Ypsilanti artist and underground heavyweight Sigidy. The offering serves as a definitive flag in the sand moment in the evolution of the self proclaimed “audio craftsman”, and truly reveals a more contagious, concise and polished style the Michigan legend has become known and acclaimed for. The tape features the usual cast and crew on production with B.e-Z exclusively doing every beat on the project, exposing a myriad of feelings and tones through highly unique instrumentals that take the listener on an audio adventure like no other.

“NOTE TO SELF” New album from MR CLFFNOTE: NEW MUSIC

Published

on

By

“Note to self”, the new project from Mr Cliffnote comes to us with the top notch graphic we come to expect from the multi talented artist.

The neatly-packaged eight-track album quickly touches on his affinity for
battle-style lyrics, but also his personal love for music, memories of family, and
nearly every emcee’s favorite topic: women.
Setting the early tone are back-to-back soul tinged tracks, produced by Crate
Digga. Both joints (“Godspeed” and “The Dirty Bomb”) introduce you to Mr.
Cliffnote’s ability to pen in your face lyrics with precise delivery. On the latter track,
he opens the second verse with, “This is your last chance/Save The Last Dance for
the last man standin’ in the avalanche, who never broke his battle stance”. Even in
album mode, he clearly doesn’t forget his roots in the battle circuit, which can be a
challenge for many emcees in general… but he makes the transition seamlessly.
The middle of the album moves on to some of the comedic but realistic side of
love with, “Hello Nurse”, thoughts of yesteryears on “The Melody”, clever
metaphoric phrasing of “Visit The D”, and an absolute radio ready DJ Dez produced
track entitled “When We’re Together”, putting Cliff’s vocal stylings on display.
However, the standouts of the album come at the end with the introspective “Live
On”, featuring Pierre Anthony (closing your eyes while listening to this song is
recommended) and the politically charged “Gunz”. A video for this track is
mandatory and it’s easily one of the most important songs in hip hop this entire year.
Most familiar with Mr. Cliffnote remember him giving verbal beatdowns to
opponents at open mics for years. But “Note To Self” isn’t just a play on this
Detroit-based emcee’s name. It’s also a reminder for the listener to take “notes” on
the mark he’s continuing to make on the genre and his motivation to push it forward.
