MUST LISTEN

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

Isaac Castor – “The Sickness” (Prod. by Foul Mouth)

Isaac Castor - "The Sickness" (Prod. by Foul Mouth)

More leakage from one of Middle Finger Music’s own, Isaac Castor bestows a second glimpse, as we prepare to travel down “The Rabbit Hole” alongside him and Foul Mouth on 4/20. With “The Sickness” we tag along on Isaac Castor’s journey of contracting a zombified illness from none other that a 4o oz bottle of malt liquor. Note, this was all filmed and orchestrated creatively before the current timeline of events, COVID-19 and all. However, this is malt liquor zombies we’re talking here and Castor doesn’t only excel in acting the role, he excels with his confident vernacular that twists words with a style reminiscent of Dilated Peoples for me.  That’s a strong compliment for an emcee who continues to drop compelling reasons to keep his catalog on watch. Enjoy the official music video directed, filmed, an edited by Cylent above.

"DON'T STAND TOO CLOSE VOL. 1" Junii

Year of Junii. . .
 ITS one of those things that you know is coming. Not to be psychic .. But when you hear an artist like Junii (Shaina Ferrell) and you hear
her undeniable creativity, innovativeness and originality. You know you are witnessing something more than special. Its a gift. And Junii is
truly gifted. Starting as a duo in the Hip Hop Soul group called Better In Black, Junii’s drive and talent was the backbone along with her
brother that made them stand out. Their sound, was Junii’s creation. She was the creative mastermind behind the productions as well as
delivering master class rapping and impressive singing chops to boot. She has enjoyed the rise as an independent artist, which saw
Better In Black transition from Internet to actual performances and moving beyond Sound Cloud releases. They officially released the EPs
The Garden (2018) and DELETE_EVERYTHING (2019).. The latter was recognized by Industry trade magazine, Music Connection Magazine
 Review Section with an 8.0 rating and later Bettr In Black was named as “Ones To Watch in 2020” by the magazine. Eventually her brother
Natrol Black would step down from Better In Black in late 2019. But Junii took the time to realign herself with ne collaborators and bounced
back with “THE UMA THURMAN EP” with Production unit STR8 BANGAZ out of NYC. The Result is Pure Hip Hop Euphoria with cuts like
“Uma” and “Hot Days” showing Junii ripping the verse in Full emcee mode. Its clearly obvious YES, she can work wonders with others and
not just on her own productions. The UMA THURMAN EP, has generated a solid buzz around her.  And recently she was chosen by Rapper
Reason of TDE Records (Kendrick Lamar, SZA, SiR) to appear on the remix of his hit “Flick It Up” thru the online contest #FlickItUp Challenge
which found her beating out thousands of up & comers to score the once in a lifetime opportunity. It is a Dream come true to do something with
the House that Kendrick built TDE .. And not one to slow down she kept the momentum byTaking things in another direction.. Junii gets
vocal on “All Real” an alternative R&B and organic Soul workout. Reminiscent of Mary J, Jill Scott vocally, with a dose of Floetry
and The Internet to set the vibe and mood..in addition to “OUTOFHERE” & “LONG DRIVE” , she is on a tear release consecutive singles
all leading up the release of a full dual debut solo EPs in the Spring . As for Better In Black, Junii is not letting the creation fall by the wayside.
She linked up with fellow Detroit emcee Nappi Devi, who if we didn’t know better, is Junii in male form. They more than compliment each other
as rappers, but even a vocalists and writers. Making for the return of Better In Black to be an all out assault for the listener…2020 will go down
as The year of  Junii. Dropping two EPs plus the Better In Black Resurrection EP, She currently has the singles “outofhere” and “Long Drive”
released independently from the “If Tomorrow Never comes” in April EP.. And “ALL REAL” and the NEW SINGLE “LET ME KNOW” a
more Neo Soul driven groove .. AND NOW THE FULL EP “Don’t Stand Too Close Vol. 1#  .IS HERE!! “DON’T STAND TOO CLOSE VOL. 1”
by JUNII… is 8 original tracks Including ” All Real” & “Let Me Know”.. with cuts produced by Wyldfyer (Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock,
Schoolboy Q) , Lonestarr (Eminem – Kamikaze, Lil Xan) & More.
